|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.
|This thread is the only one showing charts. Can't understand why it was ever superceded.
Recent TS said:
"Reported sales increased by 2% in the period. Acquisitions contributed 2% points of sales growth, foreign currency exchange movements positively impacted growth by 4% points, whilst Group like-for-like(1) ('LFL') sales declined by 4%. Regionally, LFL sales grew by 2% in Asia Pacific, whilst sales to North America, Europe and Rest of the World declined by 4%, 8% and 11% respectively."
Price has fallen sharply, but that offers perhaps good value now.|
|Quiet board = good sign imo sssssssh|
|Hmm this is a really quiet board. SXS seems like a strong, quality company with a solid balance sheet good cash generation but on the other hand I feel these shares are a bit of a punt on the US industrial market which seems a bit risky to me - imo the shares look a bit expensive after this recent rally.|
|They were right|
|UBS says downgrade to sell with target of 2000p. Probably due to margin pressure from strong dollar|
|Looking good to push through 23 today...|
|Huge rises here, and no one posting..well holding a sb from 2220, looking for 2400 for short term exit.|
