5-Jun-2019 – 82p – £548m – PER 19.6
AGM Statement – Very positive YTD in 2019, confident of achieving run-rate Revenue of £200m and EBIT of £55m+ by end 2021.
I remain Long here and hope this may help the price (down 50% from 12 month highs – Should have been sold long ago for a higher profit (eye of the ball)).
Subsequent note: On price getting a bit of a boost here I finally decided to sell out a couple of weeks later for a small profit – A profit that would have been much larger had I observed my 25% Technical Stop Loss rule!
