Mainfreight: $50 Bucks and Beyond

Image result for 50 buck note


I don't know about you but I have been watching the upwards trend in share price of Mainfreight Ltd with much interest, which is why I did one of these last year before the profit announcement in May 2017.

First of all its no surprise to me why its up.


Its well run, self critical and critical of others where its business is being affected and very few announcements to the market.


Lets have a look at some essential figs.



2018

*Net Reported Profit  112.22 mil
*Price Earnings Ratio (P/E) 17.27
*Earnings per Share (EPS) 112.24
*Net Tangible Assets per share 483.40c
*Total Net Div Paid  45c
*Div Yield 1.51%
*Market Cap 3,003,000,000


2017

*Net Reported Profit  88 mil

*Price Earnings Ratio (P/E) 23.29
*Earnings per Share (EPS) 96.24
*Net Tangible Assets per share 329.21c
*Total Net Div Paid  40c
*Div Yield 1.6%
*Market Cap 2,275,000,000

It is currently trading at $29.92c and has closed as high as $31.10c last week and i expect it to trend upwards given the latest figures and the market sentiment that the next profit result out Nov 2018 will be a real doozy.

They - MFT - have finally got it right. They just have to stitch together the various branches tightly and not lose the momentum that they obviously have.

They are winning major new clients.

The only rider to all this going on is if we have a major slowdown in trading between nations.

Peace out.

Since Dec 30 2016 when the share price was $20.71 the share has packed on nearly 2 bucks to be trading at $22.60 currently.


It is trading at these record levels largely because of positive sentiment and it is because it is a great company.


I don't have any motivations either way, i'm keeping this stock until the day I die with a possible big payoff when the vultures circle and they will but either way I don't think it will be enough to tempt the heads of Mainfreight.


It certainly won't tempt me. You would have to be talking well north of $50 to get me to release these.


I'm enjoying this run and feel this May's profit announcement will be a stunner.


The global logistics biz can be a hard beast at the best of times but I feel - the second feel in as many sentences -  that Mainfreight have finally got their ducks in a row.


Can't wait until 30th May.

Hallenstein Glasson: What Do I Do?




Hallenstein Glasson Holdings Ltd is a stock I haven't looked at here since Jan 23 2017.

In case your wondering I now operate from here.

I have owned this particular stock this time for 7 years.

I write this particular column this time because of the recent rise in share price from just under 4 bucks at the beginning of the year to finish yesterday at $6.03.

People like me have loved this stock for years. It is well run by a bunch of penny pincers and has no debt.

As of writing its still paying a net 6.23 % div, which is the MOST on the New Zealand market.

It looks like it is finally making head way and they have got all their ducks in a row.

Online they are doing exceptionally well and Glassons and Hallensteins, their two brands have not really done any better.

They have in fact got a mate who is buying up Hallensteins shares 1a for the past 3 weeks and he now owns - buy my calculations - around 10% of outstanding shares. 

Which makes him the 2nd largest shareholder after Tim Glasson.

I own this stock because it pays me well over a 20% pa return and I have no problem keeping it.

You would have to give me somewhere north of $7 bucks to get rid of it.

You would own it first for its still good return and for the fact that some other chap about 2000 miles from here is interested too.

DYOR.

Share Investor: Mainfreights Don Braid with Corin Dann




An interesting 15 mins or so with Don Braid that I initially missed.

You can see him start to get annoyed by Corins move to the negative with his questions.

Don is ALWAYS positive!!

Enjoy.

Don Braid says they are also trying to move to electric fork lifts and make greater use of solar power in their buildings.

Meanwhile, despite headline business confidence being weak in many surveys at the moment, Mr Braid says he's feeling optimistic about the economic outlook for New Zealand and he doesn't know why other businesses are grumpy.

He says for the transport sector the new government is actually providing more stability by being mode natural when it comes to transport infrastructure.

My Food Bag - The IPO




Cecilia Robinson is her name and My Food Bag is her game.

Launching in 2013 and taking her husband on, Teresa Gattung, Nadia Lim as ambassadors and investors MFB claims to have thousands of customers throughout New Zealand and delivering approx $140 m in revenue with no mention anywhere of any profit being delivered.

MFB had a go at the Aussie market but withdrew last year because it found its competition too tough - my emphasis.

Now lets get down to the nitty gritty. This story/press release out yesterday in stuff fails to mention that they have already tried OZ and retreated.

"My Food Bag would continue to focus on its New Zealand customers, and there were no plans to branch into Australia or any other overseas markets, Robinson said".

That really has Teresa Gattung fingers all over it. 

In her previous life as CEO of Telecom such pearls of wisdom were regularly up on the NZX as press releases.

With Nadia shes cool but she apparently sold a share of the business to Waterman Capital for approx $6m.

So at the moment ownership is unclear but you can bet that all 3 of the main holders have remained so to some extent.

Not much is known about the founder Cecilia Robinson except to say that everything looks sweet and lovely. In case your wondering i am suspicious because there is a lot of positive stuff written about her on the net/Newspapers and magazines.

Not a lot of negative.

Still that maybe cause I have a natural skepticism when it comes to me putting down money on something like this.

With that in mind I will leave it to the IPO managers at Waterman Capital to come out before the IPO with facts and figures

So far sadly lacking from anything out so far about My Food Bag.

I am not participating in the IPO.

Sky City Casino: Time to buy; Again




Well as I write this Sky City Entertainment Group Ltd [SKC.NZX] is trading down 14c at $3.76.

I'm not aware of any news that goes against the company except the one thing and that past a few weeks back in SKC VS FBU. That could benefit the company or go against them.

I can only surmise that it is debt that the market is worried about and that would be an issue EXCEPT the company has long term debt that isn't due until well into the next decade.

Get in fast.

It on sale.

AND there is a 10c dividend fully imputed that has record date of 2 March.
