Time is a great healer. I bought in 2012 around 471p and it's compounded about 20% on a share price basis alone! Granted, it was quite cheap in 2012 and had a 3.4% dividend yield IIRC but Diploma will keep growing and burn off even a high initial purchase price IMHO.

I was wrong! Dividend 53.8p a share, up 26% and ahead of 2022 AND 2023 dividend forecasts.

It's been the making of my portfolio but you've got to be prepared to accept an 'unbalanced' portfolio! I once had a share that went up 20x and ended up representing over 70% of the total. Those who require 'balance' will never see such out-performance.

I actually bought my first holding in October 2006 at just over £2/share (after adjustment for 2008 share split) but my average cost is higher as it was one of the shares I focussed on after a portfolio review when I decided to stop trying to research many new shares looking for "the next big thing" and simply add to the winners I already held, so I have bought on many occasions since at higher prices.

In the long term, the fundamental strength of the business wins out.

I bought at 465p in 2012 and since then the share price has quintupled (even at recent levels), while the dividend has gone up from around 15p to an expected 50p this year.

quality company and proves it again. look at those margins.
only have a small position here because of the valuation. was looking at 14-15 and 17xx as add zones if mkt got worse but so far a mix of mkt stability and solid trading is keep the price higher.

As good a trading update as I have read from any company recently. Glad I used the price fall to buy more, but there's more to come as I imagine the company will take advantage of the current market to make more acquisitions

Is someone stalking DPLM for a takeover?
The Capital Group Companies, Inc. increased its stake recently from 11% to 12%.
Anyone more informed have any comments on this?

Thanks all. Btw there was a good article on Diploma on Stockopedia last week, by Ben HObson. Covered EPS,ROCE,ROE, div and of course the high PE to which Rogue refers. He concluded you may haver a premium at this price but you also have safety "One of the biggest attractions with this stock appears to be its robust and well-defended profitability. "

Diploma posted final results yesterday titled “Strong results and well-positioned for long-term growth”. Revenues were up 46% to £787.4m, statutory operating profit was up 49% to £104.3m and basic EPS was up 29% to 56.1p. Management proposed a 42% increase in total dividend to 42.6p. The outlook also looks pretty solid, with expectations for around 10% reported revenue growth and a margin between 18% and 19%. Management also expressed confidence in their ability to deliver long-term growth at sustainably high margins. So more solid EPS growth to come. Valuation is the only cloud on the investment horizon, forward PE ratio at 37.5 is bottom decile for the Machinery Equipment & Components sector. DPLM is a solid growing, high quality company and it is relatively expensive. But share price is trending and newsflow should remain supportive, it may not get any cheaper. BUY....from WealthOracleAM
