|Solid results but not exciting.
A yield of 3.5% with the dividend increased on a regular basis is something to be thankful for.
All that cash must give rise to temptation but CNC has never made a substantial acquisition as far as I can remember.|
|Val, I agree the results are not stellar, they are very much steady as she goes. The bottom line growth is something they need to focus on.|
|Profit still only at the level it was a few years ago and the company needs to show some growth. Increased spend on R&D is good if it bears fruit and there are encouraging signs of this - "plenty of scope for internal organic growth where we continue to see many opportunities to grow the business". I have a small holding from last August.|

|I'm surprised that the 19 May AGM statement didn't get mentioned on this BB. It was rather positive.
"I am pleased to report that the Company's strong trading performance in 2015 has continued into 2016. Our cash position remains strong following increased dividend payments in respect of 2015 and the Board is of the view that the outlook for this year as a whole remains good."

|Concurrent Technologies Plc, a world leading specialist in the design and manufacture of high-end embedded computer products for critical applications in the defence, aerospace, telecommunications, transportation, scientific and industrial markets, launches a new processor XMC module based on a low power variant of the 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor family.
|Based on the financial performance, chart and strong start to the year this seems to be the type of holding that should be in my portfolio.
The cash generation on the back of record sales looks very attractive.
But I don't understand the potential within the products. Are there any geeks out there with a view that can tell me more about the opportunities behind ExpressFabric switches and the like?|
|I have first bought today based on today's results. Surprised at the muted market reaction and dismayed by the large share price spread.
Still, it looks as if the drift upwards will be slow.|
I expect you will turn out to be correct about the slow burner. There has probably been a bit of profit taking this morning by short term traders who bought in shortly before the 2015 results were published.
Effectively we have received a very strong trading update today - as well as those 2015 results.
Just to repeat "Sales in the first quarter of 2016 have been excellent and our current order book indicates a strong first half year performance."|
|Yes their statements puzzle me , in a matter of weeks we go from cautious to superb performance, not sure what to make of it.|
Surprised I've been able to top-up at the levels achieved this morning.
Wonder if this is going to be a slow-burner today...
It does make the December statement look very cautious in retrospect; I rather like that.

· EPS increased by 66.2% to 3.79 pence (2014: 2.28 pence)

|I'm not so sure it is a 'mild profit warning.'
Looks to me like they used much the same wording last year in their December statement last year (which was released at noon).
And their eventual results were well-received.
Does tend to make me skittish though when I see a trading update turn-up in the middle of the trading day...|
|RNS, put out mid afternoon. This is very poor practice - trading updates should be issued at 7am to allow thought before the market opens, not in the middle of trading!
SP dropped 5% on a "broadly in line" statement (in other words, a mild profit warning).|
|Oregano, good prediction of yours. And now a Director is selling.|
|Good article hastings well worth a read.|
|A few thoughts on the back of yesterday.

|So trading on 19x with a weaker H2 to come. unsurprised it is selling off give the run it has had. Likely to slip back into the 50s IMHO. it was sub 40p 6 months back.|

|the relatively very low number of shares in issue can only work to our benefit whilst there is a bit of momentum. Have been holding these for many years and am encouraged by recent trend - may it continue.|
