UK Stock Market News Today – 18-Sep-2019
Avingtrans (AVG) – 240p – £75m – PER 19
Results For The 12 Months To End May 2019 – Revenue up 34% to £105.5m (£78.9m), Adjust PBT £5.3m (£2.4m), Adjusted Diluted EPS 14.9p (8.4p), FY Dividend 3.8p (3.6p).
Acquisitions seem to be integrated well but I do remain cautious here on them trying to do too much too quickly – Even though it still looks like reasonable value.
Judges Scientific (JDG) – 3440p – £214m – PER 18
Results For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – Revenue up 9%, Adjusted PBT, EPS and Interim Dividend up 20%+. FY Adjusted PBT and EPS to be ahead of expectations.
Always looks overvalued to me but always seems to outperform.
Porvair (PRV) – 620p – £284m – PER 25
9 Months Trading Update – In-line.
The forecasts I see still represent single digit growth here (Revenue and EPS) so I don’t see value at this price.
Strix (KETL) – 165p – £313m – PER 12
Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – Revenue up 2.5%, PBT up 4.6%, Diluted EPS up 1.8%, the Interim Dividend is up 13%. FY remains in-line.
Still looks about fairly valued around this level to me.
Warpaint London (W7L) – 51p – £39m – PER 5
Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – Revenue up 2.9%, made a loss, the Interim Dividend is maintained. FY outlook unchanged.
Disappointment again and further validates why it’s always cheap.
