UK Stock Market News Today – 14-Mar-2019
DFS Furniture (DFS) – 236p – £500m – PER 11.5
Interim Results For The 22 Weeks To 30th December 2018 – A mix of numbers here but looks like Revenue is up, with PBT and EPS doubled (or thereabouts). The Interim Dividend is unchanged (at 3.7p). FY profit expectations are unchanged.
Certainly more attractive than previously, I will wait and see how the FY looks.
Jarvis Securities (JIM) – 495p – £54.2m – PER 15.6
Results For The 12 Months To End December 2018 – Revenue up 5% or so, PBT and EPS both down -2%, Dividend up 4%. Last 6 months performed well, new fee tariffs and no new regs to accommodate. Outlook seems optimisitc enough.
Not much interested in getting on board here at the moment.
Kin And Carta (KCT) – 94p – £144m – PER 8.8
Interim Results For The Period From 4th August 2018 To 31st January 2019 – “Pillars” struggling it seems, Revenue down -5%, PBT down -4% and EPS down -9%. Net Debt stands at £33.3m. On track to meet the Board’s FY expectations for Adjusted PBT.
I still can’t justify looking into this in any more detail at present.
As always, all comment most welcome!
