I suppose it was bound to get hit with the auto sector struggling and general nervousness. Not sure Brian's use of the word "crazy" did much for the share price either. However, it's cheap as chips for the long-term at these prices even if it could well drop further.

My stop loss got hit at 250p, but back in today a touch under 230p, a fair bit of trading today, market makers had hardly any stock by the looks of it.

The second half performance was outstanding - though we should have guessed it would be good after Brian's usually gloomy outlook interim statements. Either he is naturally pessimistic or he is having his fun. The lack of detail is a pain, especially on gross margins given the leap in operating margins. It would also be interesting to know how much they spent on the new foundry in the year. However, for the long-term it looks very good value with the cash, the increased capacity and, critically, its high reputation with it customers. Trouble is, it is too long-term for most investors.

Profits and EPS very good,a pity about cost rises effecting the share price today. No real indication of how much costs will hit headline profits, if it is say 1-2 million, hardly a disaster, the company has no debt and high profits compared to market cap. Lots of other companies in the same boat with costs going up,CGS should come through the tough times ok.

Their reputational strength seems key. They may hit a problem if the trucks sector softens alongside autos, but looking beyond that they look very-well managed, have cash, are almost pathologically cautious, and offer rewards to anyone willing to wait. And wait. And wait... Quoted in today's FT by the way in article on UK maufacturing's strengths.

wipo1 - This is one for 'real' people:-) it may be a one post a year thread but all the better for that (My last post was in 2003 BTW) Speed Camera quote "They bought equipment from abroad on the cheap and what do you guess? it's breaking down" now where have I heard that before!! People think 'cos it's a low tech process it's easy to do, well it maybe low tech but what Castings do still requires some skill and that's where the imports are nearly always at a disadvantage!!

Thanks for info speed camera, CGS is a great undervalued and overlooked company, I will continue to hold for a while yet.

Apparently Castings is getting work from coal mine operators in the UK. They bought equipment from abroad on the cheap and what do you guess? The stuff is breaking down and in desperation to keep production close to schedule Castings and the like are getting premium orders from the colleries to replace faulty parts. Let it continue.

Excellent results from CGS as expected, this management team would do a better job of running the UK than bill in ben and no. 10 and 11

Now even cheaper, market makers playing silly games marking down on no volume no news. Market cap 118 million, if it was high tech would be worth double! Stock market strange!

Good results, plenty of asset backing and no debt. Nice yield to pick up as well, very surprised not much interest. I bought some yesterday and I am looking to add, shares look undervalued to me.

Surprised there has been no comment. Much better results than I expected plus 25 million net cash in the bank. And Mr Cooke is ALWAYS very cautious and honest in his outlook.

I have heard that things at castings are very healthy and they have a very full order book.

Busines is still good but the query is about profitability in view of the Chairman's quotes. I expect the price has gone up in line with other engineers.No doubt the sector has come up on the analysts radar!!
