|By the recent price action could be as soon as tomorrow not that I have any more info to substantiate that view|
|Final results were announced 21 Jan last year, 22 Jan in 2015, and 23 Jan 2014. Must be just about due?
Hitachi europe have got their bid in for hs2 according to todays reports, could this very good news for lpa if successful?
Might explain todays rise too?|
|Finals should (?) bring the PE down to the upper teens. The company then needs to keep picking up orders to add to the orders already booked for the next 3 years ('17-'19) to push the share price Maybe some better margin to be had if they can add to the export orders?|
|Maybe the buyer has gone? Been taking shares at well above bid , Yesterday 181p was given for them for a 5k lump. Been a few of those recently.
Any fall back gives a few extra pence profit when it comes back up on the numbers.
On what we know 200p is fair but if the business is still "galloping" then my 300p target may come rather soon.
|Little shake? Finals due in the next few weeks anyway when we can see how much LPA have been 'galloping'.|
|Deal just announced between REDS and Phillips to cross leverage products through One Space.
REDS could go a long way|
|Sitting tight and enjoying the ride. Carclo, a very similar business, including LED lighting also upbeat about prospects. A decent sector to be in methinks, not very glamorous but with much more to come.|
|Agree CT. Valuation still reasonable IMHO given growth prospects.
Worth reiterating the Sep 2016 upgrade from my post at the time.
Excellent statement with WH Ireland indicating a +17% upgrade to PBT & +23% upgrade to earnings.
WH Ireland's rebased forecasts:-
Turnover £21.3m (from £20.3m) 5% upgrade
PBT £1.5m (from £1.28m) 17% upgrade
EPS 11.7p (from 9.5p) 23% upgrade
"The strength of yesterdays statement leads us to upgrade both our PBT and EPS figures by ~17% for FY16E and FY17E. This is the third upgrade this calendar year.
Whilst we leave our dividend expectations unchanged for now, a strengthening balance sheet and enhanced earnings do provide the opportunity for current forecasts to be surpassed."
|LPA is in a strong position supplying specialist lighting and connectors to a variety of
industries, particularly Rail. LPA’s position is “better than expectations” RNS prompting our third
forecast upgrade this year. Investment in Rail, LPA’s key market, continues apace, not
just in the UK (Crossrail, Intercity Express etc.) but also in Europe, Asia and Australia. A
10%+ devaluation in GBP since June 23 gives the LPA story a further fillip. We retain a
Buy recommendation with a raised 175p target price (=15x current year P/E,
So 11.66p eps. I think we will see over 12p giving a short term 16x of 200p.
I have a look at Normanton often and I am more than happy top sit on my shares costing 30p.
|plus they are ahead of the market numbers. This will run to 200p very quickly possibly even before New year.
The company looks undervalued still and my 300p target still looks good.
|Reason I bought was that it has a classic Contraction pattern suggesting sellers drying up - hence the pop today. Don't see it as frothy at all - quite the opposite.|
|Have you read not read the 27 sept update?|
|Be careful. Remember the chairman's Interim statement included 'We expect to make good, but not spectacular, progress during the remainder of the year'. In view of that, becoming a bit too frothy now for my liking.|
|Noticed that volume has been increasing this week and particularly today. Only 4 weeks to wait until the full year results.|
|Added a few more on the breakout.|
|A new high and momentum building. Bodes well methinks|
|Bit more volume today.|
|Once again this morning, disproportionate share price mark-down relative to the number of shares actually sold.|
|Price movement not making any sense this morning ... only one sale (1k) marked so far after numerous buys but price down 2.5p. A large sale being delayed or simply the usual MM games?|
|Looking at the long term chart could be a big break upwards coming... perhaps next results will be the catalyst....|
|News this morning from the Dept of Transport is continuing evidence that shows the governments commitment to Rail infrastructure spending:
|From galloping to charging?
