glasshalfull: The share price was down today because MGP failed to deliver sales in line with Investec's forecasts. Investec believe however that full year forecasts can be achieved. "H1 sales were weaker than we expected due to capacity constraints and the timing of contract renewals. Revenues rose 17%, with 6.5% growth in body parts reported. However x-ray sales fell 8% as resources were directed towards the higher value services. The company recruited a net 19 radiologists in the period, with a further 24 added post period-end, consequently we are confident FY estimates can be achieved." --- Hope this assists. I don't hold. Kind regards GHF

lomax99: Shares magazine Medica is a premium growth story The NHS does not have enough radiologists to interpret potentially life-saving scans Teleradiology firm Medica (MGP) is expected to enjoy rapid growth thanks to a surge in demand and a lack of radiologists in the UK. Medica helps to provide early diagnosis of various diseases through its consultant radiologists who interpret computerised tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. If these scans identify diseases earlier, it can improve treatment options and outcomes. Strong performance since IPO Berenberg says earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation and earnings per share are expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 16% and 20% respectively between 2017 and 2020. Medica has enjoyed a strong share price performance since its IPO on 21 March 2017 when it raised £121m to pay down borrowings. Since 22 March, the stock has rallied 16.9% to 219.2p. The company currently trades on a forecast 29.8 times earnings per share in the year to 31 December 2018, but Berenberg analyst Charles Weston thinks this premium valuation is ‘justifiedR17; in light of rapid growth. The analyst projects 8% growth per annum in the volume of CT and MRI scans handled by the company, which will be supported by a deficit of radiologists in the UK. There are 4.7 radiologists per 100,000 of the UK general population. This is materially below the Royal College of Radiologists’ target of 8 per 100,000, and is pushing up waiting lists. Outsourcing trends and pricing power One of the ways to tackle this issue is by outsourcing services. Weston says approximately 7% of CT/MRI scans are outsourced. Medica has a dominant position in the UK teleradiology market (50%) and this allows it to charge 5% to 10% more than its rivals. The analyst also highlights that 80% of all clinical decisions are underpinned by imaging and new clinical guidelines for quicker diagnosis of diseases such as cancer and dementia call for scans. Medica provides services to over 100 NHS trusts, as well as private hospitals and diagnostics imaging firms, and intends to expand its services to tackles conditions such as strokes. There are risks associated with the business. Medica needs to ensure it continues to recruit radiologists to meet demand as otherwise growth could be constrained. We were initially cautious on Medica’s dependence on the NHS and Weston also highlights the NHS exposure as a reason for some caution as 99% of sales are derived from NHS Trusts. Despite this nagging concern we are convinced high demand and low supply will drive Medica forward.

thebigshortfella: Dan_the_Epic - I like the fact that you are challenging MGP. Am I right in assuming that you wouldn't trade MGP at its current share price?

dibbs: Certainly some decent volume today but the share price remains pretty static. WJG exhibited very similar behavior before heading northwards with a breakout from around 120p to 180p. Just a bit of patience required before MGP has it's time IMHO. Dibbs

thebigshortfella: lomax99 - do you have a view on this? The share price seems almost unnaturally static. Thanks

opodio: Be 20 years before you rely on a computer to do it This is where artificial intelligence will play a key role in the next couple years. AI will not be diagnosing patients and replacing doctors — it will be augmenting their ability to find the key, relevant data they need to care for a patient and present it in a concise, easily digestible format. When a radiologist calls up a chest computed tomography (CT) scan to read, the AI will review the image and identify potential findings immediately — from the image and also by combing through the patient history related to the particular anatomy scanned. If the exam order is for chest pain, the AI system will call up: Share price Moving up now

tiredoldbroker: Wakey, wakey, Chancre, you lieing little cretin. So much for your post 572 "possible swing to profits for the year ending 30 September 2007.... a conservative valuation would be around 1.50p". What you've actually got is turnover down over 50%, a loss of £1.3m, delisting of the company, and the share price halved to 0.25p bid ! You disgusting ramper, I hope you didn;t dump your stock last week, you deserve to be hoisted by your own petard in this way.

chancer6: Finals this week should provide the spark for the big re-rating. Turnover expected at minimum 3 million and swing to profits would put the share price at 2p (2m mkt cap).

chancer6: Anyone has any idea of the levels of profit margins the company makes??? The growth company arcticle indicated high levels of profit margins. Some very big figure deals have been completed by the company where they have acted on behalf of the purchaser. Looking at previous set accounts turnover could come anywhere between 3-5 million and even we take the lower number the company could be also be set to announce a swing into profits. If so a mkt cap of around 2 million which would be equivalent to a share price of 2p imo would be reasonable. All the discontinued activities should be over now as stated in the Interims last summer which have results in losses. SMPA has always been making a decent profit over previous years though that was quite low in the Interims due to getting rid of all the dead wood. Judging by the amount of activity going on through the SMPA website, the forward looking statement should be positive.

canny lass: Chancher6, I would have thought it will all come in one general announcement. Particulars of the acquisition. Proposed means to fund acquisition - Rights Issue. Share consolidation to justify 7.5p share price. Normally the price offered for the Rights issue is slightly discounted to the share price.
