UK Stock Market News Today – 17-Oct-2018
Findel (FDL) – 270p – £233.4m – PER 9.38
Trading Update For The 6 Months To End September 2018 – FY expectations remain unchanged. Net Debt down to £81m (expected to be around this level for FY).
This certainly becomes more attractive as that Net Debt decreases but for now I will remain Neutral.
Oxford Metrics (OMG) – 65p – £81.2m – PER 15.1
Trading Update For The 12 Months To End September 2018 – In-line and still on track to deliver 5 year plan to double profits.
I remain Neutral here.
Flybe (FLYB) – 32.2p – £69.8m – PER 27.3
Trading Update – FY Adjusted PBT to be lower than market expectations – Mean the Loss will be even bigger than expected.
I remain Neutral here, it would be on my Avoid list but I just like to keep up with the (sad) story.
Tristel (TSTL) – 280p – £122.4m – PER 29.8
Audited Results For The 12 Months To End June 2018 – Revenue up 10% to £22.2m (2017: £20.3m), PBT (before share-based payments) up 15% to £4.7m (2017: £4.1m), Adjusted EPS 9.16p up 10% (2017: 8.34p), the Dividend is up 13.6% to 4.58p (2017: 4.03p) and Net Cash stands at £6.7m (2017: £5.1m).
I still don’t see how this stock justifies such a high rating, perhaps I am missing something. I remain Neutral.
Solid State (SOLI) – 285p – £24.2m – PER 11.1
Trading Update For The 6 Months To End September 2018 – Expects to exceed FY market expectations and the order book is up 64%.
This looks much more interesting today than it did yesterday, I am going to add this to my Watchlist in the hope this fuels some upgrades (which I will keep an eye out for).
As always, all comment most welcome!
