Company news

  • Progressive (PGR US) reported Q3 results and I still like the developments very much
    • Property insurance resulted in higher losses, but measures are taken
    • All else, progresses (pun intended) nicely 🙂
  • SES SA (SESG LX) reported surprisingly well Q3 results on Oct 5th (shares were down 4th) in a strong market environment. The stock rose 10%+ during the day, reaching € 7.84 for the first time since March (in a strong market). My thesis is in good order.
    • total revenue down -2.3% yoy, with
      • Networks revenue +7.5% yoy, now accounting for 59% (-3%p yoy)
      • Video revenue stable qoq, -8.3% yoy
    • SES on track to clear US C-band by stated deadlines and realise the full $4 bn of accelerated relocation payments.
  • TMUS (TMUS US) reported Q3 results and is on a run, despite paying $ 200m for past Sprint deeds. Might be good for my small legacy DTE GR position and my SOTP play on SobtBank Group (9984 JP).
  • Tucows (TCX US) reported disappointing Q3 results and was down -9% pre-open, but recovered during the session.

Best and happy investing, s4v
