Down 3% in early trading, the market is obviously disappointed with the results. Still, it's a nice little steady eddie of a share for me, and I'm happy to hold.

EPS forecasts of about 33p don't look achievable. I have a buy price of £4 pencilled in. apad

How is this a mixed bag? Revenues for both the year to date and for the third quarter were 13% ahead of the comparable period in 2011 benefitting from recent acquisitions, together with continuing strong trading in the Group's North American Seal businesses. After adjusting for currency effects and acquisitions, underlying revenues for the year to date increased by 7%. The underlying increase in third quarter revenues was 5% against a strong prior year comparative

IMS looks OK to me overall but a mixed bag.

The short answer is 'no, I don't', silverfern, but if you asked me to speculate I've noticed that many shares which have had a particularly strong run have come off quite sharply and I'd guess some are profit-taking against the threat of Euro mayhem. I've certainly hoarded some cash in anticipation of a 'buying opportunity' and I find myself loathe to commit it to the market when the Greek situation could blow up at any time. DPLM has actually remained remarkably strong through the recent period of general market weakness and it doesn't surprise me that it has now come off the top. Having said that, I certainly continue to hold as the fundamentals remain sound IMHO.

Good to see dividend keeping ahead of inflation. PE ratio of 13 is not challenging by any standards. Solid share to own.

What a little cracker of a company this has turned out to be. Revenues +13%, free cash flow + 33%, basic EPS +24%, interim dividends +20%. "the Board is confident that the Group should make further progress in the second half of the year"

Excellent interims and increased dividend reflects the confidence of the statement

Growth at 5 % is not startling but DPLM have a way of making acquisitions just at the right time to drive that figure up. It wouldn't surprise me if an announcement came on results day- I am intrigued about the gateway they opened up to China last year and whether there is opportunity there.

from 26 March:" the Board now expects the Group's adjusted profit before tax for the year ending 30 September 2012 to be ahead of the current market consensus." We'll find out just how much on 14 MAy!

SLeepy, that could have been the case but it did the same yesterday, at the time the US market opens. So my theory is it is US PIs buying a company doing very well in the US right now. Whatever, long may it continue!

Silverfern - the price was fairly flat until about 3 pm and then rose strongly. My point was that the price rise might have been temporary and might have - temporarily - boosted one or more investment managers performance figures - at the quarter end. Thankfully this does not appear to have been the case.
