UK Stock Market News Today – 23-Apr-2019
Angling Direct (ANG) – 67.5p – £43.6m – PER n/a
Trading Update – A new store has opened and sales growth has been robust with LFL up 29.5% in February and March.
Again no mention of profitability, they’re good at that (not mentioning it) – I remain uninterested until I see actuals.
Franchise Brands (FRAN) – 84p – £65m – PER 22.8
AGM Statement And Trading Update – System sales up 12.9% (a record quarter) – Looks forward to the remainder of the year with confidence.
Remains on my Watchlist and will be keeping an eye out for potential upgrades here.
STV (STVG) – 382p – £150m – PER 8
AGM Statement And Q1 Trading Update – In-line.
Attractive enough (5% or so yield) but still concerned about Netflix, etc. and potential cuts in advertising budgets, perhaps!
As always, all comment most welcome!
