Interesting RNS - ACL are to be reclassified to the Electronic and Electrical Equipment sector from the Support Services sector. I wonder if this sector commands a higher average rating....? Https://www.investegate.co.uk/acal-plc--acl-/rns/sector-reclassification/201709140700026814Q/ "This reclassification reflects Acal's successful transformation over recent years, from a distribution company to an international designer, manufacturer and supplier of custom electronics including the acquisition of 13 businesses and five non-core disposals."

...and now paying 305p. Next month's H1 trading update should be strong given the excellent Q1 update in July: ""We have had a good first quarter with widespread sales growth. Additionally, our order book has grown further which will drive sales growth in the year ahead. We are confident of delivering further progress through the year."

Not really "moved to" - just a result of the merger: As a result of the completion of the court-sanctioned scheme of arrangement and all-share merger under Part 26 of the Companies Act 2006 of Aberdeen Asset Management PLC and Standard Life plc which became effective on 14 August 2017, this notification details the assets under management of the new Combined Group ('Standard Life Aberdeen plc') as of the dates noted above.

Not for long SoundBuy :o)) Tipped again here.... Http://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2017/07/22/two-high-growth-small-caps-id-buy-to-retire-on/ "Two high-growth small-caps I’d buy to retire on Small-cap investing can be a bit of a hit or miss venture, but I believe looking to smaller stocks that are less frequently covered by analysts can unearth some great companies whose shares trade at bargain prices while offering phenomenal long-term capital appreciation prospects. And I think I’ve discovered two such under-the-radar options in speciality electronics manufacturer Acal (LSE: ACL).... Exploiting its niche with aplomb Acal started out as a pure distributor of speciality electronics for customers in sectors as varied as photonics, communications, magnetics and sensors. But after years of serving as a go-between for manufacturers and customers, it realised there were gaps in the market that it could fill with its own products. And thus the company’s design and manufacturing (D&M) segment was born. This part of the business now accounts for over half of all sales and is growing at a rapid clip through organic expansion and acquisitions. In the year to March, sales from this division grew 28% year-on-year (y/y) to £175.6m and accounted for over 80% of the group’s £20m in underlying operating profit. On top of growing faster than group overage, operating margins of 11.5% last year were more than triple that of the distribution side of the business. Now, the distribution business still has a role to play in gathering market intelligence, providing a reliable sales outlet for the groups in-house products and increasing cross-selling from its myriad manufacturing companies. And for investors like myself who prefer their small-caps profitable and with a healthy balance sheet, its relatively small £30m in net debt presents a very manageable sum. With a great record of organic and acquisition-led growth, rising margins and a respectable 2.8% dividend yield, I believe Acal is a great business trading at a very reasonable valuation of 13.7 times forward earnings."

Peel Hunt and Finncap have indeed retained their 360p and 339p target prices for the moment. Here's Finncap's brief summary today FYI: "Strong organic progress BUY Acal has confirmed the year has started well with Q1 organic sales growth of +9%. At constant exchange rates, total sales were up +14%. While Q1 last year was relatively weak in the Custom Distribution division, this is an encouraging performance, and with order intake up 21% CER and 15% organically the outlook is also positive. Organic growth rates were similar in both the Design & Manufacturing and Custom Distribution divisions and we understand across countries and industries. Variohm, acquired in January, doubled Acal’s sensors capability and continues to perform well. Sensors are a product segment we expect to produce strong results as the digital transformation of industry continues. With the FY 2018E P/E of 13.1x attractive against our expectation of 11% average annual EPS growth over the next three years (and the P/E a 24% discount to peers) we reiterate our Buy recommendation."

Peel Hunt have a 360p target and Finncap a 339p target. I'd imagine both will reiterate those targets before the next trading update in October.

Excellent trading update this morning - should propel the share price forward very nicely. The order book is really surging, 21% up on last year. Trading is "strong", momentum is "continuing" - the sentiment here is extremely positive: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/acal-plc--acl-/rns/trading-update/201707250700029386L/ "First Quarter Trading Update Acal plc (LSE: ACL, "Acal" or the "Group"), a leading international supplier of customised electronics to industry, today issues a trading update for the first quarter of the financial year ending 31 March 2018, covering the period from 1 April 2017 to 30 June 2017. Trading in the first quarter has been strong with the momentum seen in the final quarter of last year continuing. First quarter revenue for the Group was 14% ahead of last year at constant exchange rates1 ("CER") and ahead 9% organically2 with similar organic growth rates in both the Design & Manufacturing and the Custom Distribution divisions. Order intake for the first quarter was also strong, growing by 21% CER and 15% organically, again with similar growth rates in both divisions, lifting the Group's forward order book to another record high and positioning the Group well for further growth. First quarter gross margin remained strong and in line with the final quarter of last year. As expected, it was lower than last year reflecting currency impacts on UK import costs from the fall in Sterling following the UK's European referendum. Variohm, which was acquired in January 2017, continues to perform well, and cross-selling between our two divisions delivered good growth in the first quarter. Nick Jefferies, Group Chief Executive commented: "We have had a good first quarter with widespread sales growth. Additionally, our order book has grown further which will drive sales growth in the year ahead. We are confident of delivering further progress through the year."
