For some reason the thread on ARL has disappeared from the last 30 posts, however to carry on,..... with yesterday's SENS announcement by ARL it was as predicted, that they would "cream" the last 6 months, and they certainly did. The very little upside movement in the share price the last couple of days in relation to the big jump in earnings shows that it had been priced in for some time. The next 12 months earnings I feel are going to be subdued if any growth at all, for reasons previously stated. I'm interested to see what their dividend cover will be when the full set of interim results are released as that should show how they view the year that lies ahead. My guess is that the cover will be increased somewhat but should still pay out a decent dividend.
