Not sure on that, from memory QQ has larger exposure to the UK than CHG -
would need to check though.

And on a LAB government, potential has arguably increased this week
with UK interest rates now looking to stay higher for longer.

CHG has now retraced very nearly 100% of the Russian invasion re-rating.

QQ results excellent, but on a forward multiple of not much over 13 X.

2023 isn’t going to be great for Chemring hence the price action. The buy story remains geopolitical headwinds / growing defence budgets (especially) in Chemrings sweet spot (Cyber/Sensor/Munitions) and an eventual sale. Short term we have a dependency on the US which is delaying procurement for various reasons, growing working capital and a significant capex programme and flat earnings growth with a 15x rating. All this should roll off in 2024 and the story will look rosy. One to trade the range if boredom sets in and/or for the bottom draw. I mentioned Cohort a few weeks back which had derated for no reason and that is now back at a similar valuation to Chemring at 14-15x

Bemused by the weakness in share price over the last year. Keeping an eye on the USA but at the AGM the company reported big increase in its order book. The silver lining must be an increased chance of a bid.

Making no share price headway.If defence spending is frozen or cut in USA to achieve a budget deal - how would Chemring react ?

Rim, sold some over £2.96, but surprised CHG is not trading over £3.10 -
unless the next update disappoints.

...a bit dated...

For more than 100 years, Chemring is an innovative solutions supplier for the aerospace, defence and security sectors. The company operates in over 50 countries, working with military, agencies, and businesses, with the ambition of making the world a safer and better place. CHG provides sensors, electronic systems, technology solutions, countermeasures, and other services.
The issue here is history. After prosperous years during the Gulf War it went through 10 tough years marked by bad debt-fuelled acquisition spree destroying the financial position. However. The company turned towards its shareholders, sold off operations and adopted a whole new strategy. Moreover, they have a golden fish under their umbrella in the face of Roke - the cyber security arm. Roke is generating £80m of turnover, compare that to the good assets in the sector EV/Sales average ratio of 5, means it could potentially be half of Chemring’s value, or even more. The prospects of it are also very good as it works with the UK Government and a solid entrance in the big game of US, with contract signed last year.  
Half year trading update presented company’s progress in recent years with performance ahead of expectations. Strong cash conversion and EBITDA 10% above last year interim results show improving quality of earnings. Cash flow was negative for the interim, driven by retirement of debt, which was not outbalanced by the significant decrease in CapEx. This trend in CapEx is expected to reverse as we go through H2. The boost in DPS of 23% is expected to decrease medium-term earning cover. Consensus for FY21 is revised upwards, based on the good performance in H1 and a strong order book of £450m at the end of April....from WealthOracleAM

Thanks Oilplays and here it is: “Jefferies stated the appealing growth story at Chemring was driven by its Roke units exposure to the cyber-security and AI/Machine Learning market that will improve the overall quality of earnings and positions the group at the leading edge of modern-day security and defence.
The analysts, which also hit the stock with a 370.0p target price, pointed out that Chemring had undergone "a significant restructuring", which had taken the best part of a decade to complete.
However, Jefferies stated the resultant portfolio of countermeasures, sensors, and cyber technology exposed the group to select growth and niche markets, which, in its view, greatly improved its quality of earnings.
Jefferies said: "Based on JEFe (which sit above consensus), the shares trade on an ann. FY22F PER of 16.0x and EV/EBITA of 13.1x, which look cheap vs. UK & overseas peers. We value the group on a SOTP basis (using ann. FY22F forecasts), which is in line with our approach across the sector, with a discrete valuation for Roke (39% of our EV)”

I've always thought that CHG would be a tempting morsel for a larger defence player too. johnrxx99, what makes you think that being specialised and very good at what they do makes it unlikely? Thanks in advance!
