Good morning from Paul! There's hardly any news today, and I'm suffering a bit from having my covid/flu jabs yesterday (nothing serious, just a bit groggy), so apologies for this report being a  bit sparse.

Agenda - 

Paul's Section:

Premier Miton (LON:PMI) - full year results for this fund management company. Very simple accounts, and this share looks attractively cheap on a PER basis, with very generous divis too. Balance sheet is adequate, but not a huge amount of asset backing. Thumbs up from me.

Explanatory notes -

A quick reminder that we don’t recommend any stocks. We aim to review trading updates & results of the day and offer our opinions on them as possible candidates for further research if they interest you. Our opinions will sometimes turn out to be right, and sometimes wrong, because it's anybody's guess what direction market sentiment will take & nobody can predict the future with certainty. We are analysing the company fundamentals, not trying to predict market sentiment.

We stick to companies that have issued news on the day, with market caps up to about £700m. We avoid the smallest, and most speculative companies, and also avoid a few specialist sectors (e.g. natural resources, pharma/biotech).

A key assumption is that readers DYOR (do your own research), and make your own investment decisions. Reader comments are welcomed - please be civil, rational, and include the company name/ticker, otherwise people won't necessarily know what company you are referring to.

Full Year Results

Graham normally covers this sector, and has been flagging up lots of cheap brokers & fund manager shares of late. Obviously they’re cyclical, and earnings drop when markets drop. As we’ve discussed here before, it makes sense to buy these cyclical shares when sentiment is on the floor, then sit back and enjoy (hopefully) a share price recovery, and a decent flow of divis.
