The Annual Report throws a bit more light on the numbers with gross margin slightly better than last year and admin costs lower though they say that some of this is IAS accounting (510k of cash pension cost not recognised in p&l).
More generally it's clear that capex is going to remain highish but then Brian must see a good return. The Volvo truck results yesterday suggested slowdown to come (ditto Autos) but we know all that. I can't make the AGM which is a shame as I'd like to see the crazy man in action.
When you see the 5 year figures it reminds you that profit has doubled since 04 when the share price was around 170p.|
|loryd: I suppose it was bound to get hit with the auto sector struggling and general nervousness. Not sure Brian's use of the word "crazy" did much for the share price either. However, it's cheap as chips for the long-term at these prices even if it could well drop further.|
|wipo1: Profits and EPS very good,a pity about cost rises effecting the share price today. No real indication of how much costs will hit headline profits, if it is say 1-2 million, hardly a disaster, the company has no debt and high profits compared to market cap. Lots of other companies in the same boat with costs going up,CGS should come through the tough times ok.|
