Bought back in today having been away 3years as seems to be breaking out - did these really used to trade around £12+. Looks like turning around now and generating decent amount of cash. Pleased to have got 604p purchase at 16:20. Not sure how given trades around it

20DMA has crossed 50DMA and 100DMA recently, which could be positive, with an up tick from here, nice rise into close.

Yes - at: hTtp://www.dialight.com/PLCHome/Index In the 'Financial News' box click on 'Half Yearly results 2016', which is strangely underneath the AGM statement.

The market is already off quite a bit, at least for a lot of small cap companies I follow. It does seem strange that DIA has not seen similar weakness. Are people really selling growing companies trading on 7-10 P/E yet buying Dialight on a historic P/E of 40, EV/EBITDA of 70, fwd P/E of 23, no dividend, now in debt, margins shrinking, revenue not growing, FCF negative for last 3 years? It seems to me that this must come back to reality some point regardless of general market conditions. Who knows when that will be though.

Still SHORT, although I came close to getting stopped out. When the wider market cracks this will tank IMHO.

I think you are reading that last RNS wrong. It was a sale of 175k. If you read the last set of holding announcements you have: Montanaro Asset Management Selling FIL selling DB Selling Sterling Strategic Value Buying So suggests that it's PI's & a small fund taking stock as the bigger institutions sell out.

The management are not up to the job IMO, they've increased production just as the mining oil sector was turning down. Not sure what they can do to increase profit margins.

The problem, as I've alluded to many times over the years, is that whilst DIA claim to be profitable, strangely these 'profits' never find their way into the bank account and over a very short period of time, they have managed to turn net cash of around £15m to debt of over £9m. The reason for this is clear from the cashflow report - year after year after year they capitalise 'research & development' and so-called 'capital payments' but if it's necessary to spend these amounts every year just to stand still, then it's probably really revenue expenditure (over £6m last year on top of 'ordinary' overheads). Assuming those not-so 'exceptionals' continue in future years, they need a massive increase in revenue to go cash positive.

I'm sure long term for the business it's the right thing to do. But it's another sign that the business will need to compete much more on price in the future at the detriment to margins.

Sadly I have no great insight into the short term movements of the share price. What I will say is that if you view the last 6 years results on the Stockopedia StockReport and ignore the share price movements you see a company that has managed to generate modest revenue growth and pretty much no profit growth even if you exclude the bad 2015/2016 years as anomalies. Generally this means that the company is operating in increasingly competitive markets. They are not a consumer business but one only has to look at the LED lights available on Amazon from Chinese manufacturers to know that the Dialight product itself has little to no sustainable competitive advantage beyond their distribution networks. That their turnaround plan is essentially cost saving and manufacturing efficiency tells you that this is now a low margin sector and should be priced as such. It is the classic case of the returns from new technology going to the consumers (& environment?) and not the companies creating the technology. If they remain in the same sector with increasing sales but declining margins then something around the £2 would seem a reasonable fair value to me after the business has completed it's turnaround.

dangersimpson2:> You called right - Now some 10% down from time of your post - Still I suspect further to fall BUT there appears to be a largish buyer in the market picking up stock - however Fund Managers are not using their own money and th elarket of LED's is becoming very competitive - Increased pressure on margins as reported by Photonstar this morning - So any calls on how much further to fall - ??

The board continues to target underlying EBIT growth for the Group's full year performance. I agree it's almost impossible to get an accurate steer from that statement. The only thing we can do is to compare to FY15. Underlying EBIT for 2015 was £6.1m. Given that they are only 'targeting' growth not 'confident' of it I would expect them to have a poor first half and only deliver a marginal increase for the full year. Say £6.5m. This would be a big miss on the 23p EPS 2016 consensus. The 2015 results suggest they will have a minimum £12m of exceptional costs in 2016 so reported figures will be another loss and debt will increase to say £10m. With the market cap at £182m they would be on a fwd underlying EV/EBIT of c.30x. Given that a struggling company would normally trade on 6x EV/EBIT or less then based on today's trading statement the share price would seem to have a long way to drop to reflect current trading. A recovery is forecast in 2017 but even then the company would be on a high mid-teens EV/EBIT multiple. How confident should we be of 2017 if they miss on a modest recovery in 2016?

WTF! That has got to be the most pathetic trading update I've ever come across!! Who runs this mickey mouse company! Unbelievable! Surely its got to be a mistake, and an 'update' will be posted soon?

Trading update out - Total waste of time - Tells PI's nothing save that the Company is still alive - If Mr Market reads it the same way then should be good for a 20%+ FALL. But what do I know ?
