|REDS, remarkable recovery story not yet well known. Trading update 5th September.
REDS provides software applications for smart buildings and counts pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline and real estate player Meyer Bergman among its customers.
Constant flow of new contracts with large multinationals.
They got recently a 12 million contract with UBS which represented 50% of REDS' market capital! UBS have 700 more branches needing possibly the same service.
New CEO Mark Braund very positive and invested his own money along with the financial director. Mark is a specialist in turning around struggling companies. He has already done it with REDS in less than a year.
|Another great week for Halma as the pound weakened which answered the question I raised in 268.
Can it go much further seems unlikely but I thought that when the share price was 870p.|
|Over £2m worth of shares changed hands in the auction at 5p above the closing price. This company has aroused a certain interest.|
Re 265 Worth Every Penny----- Article in the I.C exactly a year ago.
Quality doesn't come cheap,but Harriet Russell has identified five shares that easily live up to their punchy price-tags.
I have updated the share prices.
BT 444p now 407p
Next 7475p now 5280p
Victrex 2086p now 1420p
Whitbread 5060p now 3913p
Halma 772p now 940p
Plenty to ponder on these numbers. The FTSE was 6710 when this article was published.
So the question is can Halma continue to beat the Market and also outperform some well run companies. For example Prudential.|
|Good results out today and another dividend increase. Yet this board is like a ghost town. Always a good sign for a share :-)|
|Half year results next Tuesday. The chart looks good for breakout. The IC description of the company (thanks Hedgehog)is very meaningful.|
|From the "INVESTORS CHRONICLE" 19 June 2015:
"WORTH EVERY PENNY
Quality doesn't come cheap, but Harriet Russell has identified five shares that easily live up to their punchy price-tags
... Halma (HLMA)
Industrial technology group Halma has earned its status as an 'old reliable' stock - one that investors can rely on for a solid return, consistent growth and steady income. Case in point: at the full-year results in June, the group hiked the dividend by another 7 per cent - for the 35th consecutive year. Even last year's weaker industry growth and currency headwinds couldn't hold Halma back and the group reported its 12th consecutive year of underlying growth.
The secret, according to the group's bosses, is paying attention to long-term social trends and keeping up to date with current health, safety and environmental legislation.
... Halma might serve as the best example of an acquisition-led growth strategy. Last year the group spent £100m on new companies to add to the group. But it's clear it tries to buy quality and never bets too big, preferring so-called 'bolt on' deals that can easily be integrated. ...
Essentially, whether Halma is buying up businesses of growing on its own, the group invests in making products the world cannot do without. And when the market is volatile, this kind of reliability generally comes at a price."|
|Yes, my favourite long term share.|
|Can it break out?|
|Halma is one of only 4 shares that on average statistically outperforms in the usually dire summer month of JuneHalma average price rise for June is 6.1%|
|You Dad still own them EI?
Next results 12 June, might see some strength on the run up, even though this type of share is out of favour.
However, ALNT is top of my top-up list at 30Xp, for what it's worth.
Bought AZN at £42 in the kids ISAs 2 days ago.
I want to own all of PNN.
You have any favourites?
|Corporate speak then, fair enough.|
|Don't think so EI - looks like a generic statement typical of all regulated processes.
|I may be misreading this, however their appears to be a cautious comment
in the penultimate paragraph of the 15/05 Acquisitions RNS.|
|Lets hope it doesn't do a Dixons then!|
|Nice pre results rise.|
|looks a fantastic company. surprised not many followers.
it always seems to be a buy when it hits the 200ema - I'm on my 5% limit for increasing, so it just has to grow. 4% portfolio yield is gratifying.
Mind you if there is a "shake" I shall break the rule.
Did you only buy it for your Dad? Shame:-)
If I remember correctly there rarely reduce debt much. They have an active acquisition policy - don't call us, we'll call you.
It's just one of those technology shares that always looks fully valued, I believe.
Looking to increase SPX - that's another one (and with no debt for you to worry about)!
|Even through the financial crisis the divi kept going up. Yes, what a great company.|
What a great company,
Should we have a market shake this is one I would buy.|
|Just sent my Dad a text as it happens APAD.
I thought debt would be a little lower?.
Looks fully valued to me, however that now applies to about everything ;.|
