quantumx: 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?
faz: 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. "
jeffian: Well rogue mentions a JPM note, though I'm never sure what impact brokers' notes have (I take no notice myself). It may just be that this is quite a highly-rated share which has had a good run and a bit of profit-taking? Funnily enough, I've just sold some shares today (not DPLM) to bank my annual CGT allowance before 5/4, so others may do the same.
jeffian: Diploma is a key industrial play, says Berenberg Industrial machinery group Diploma (DPLM) reported a record 2021 and Berenberg believes it can deliver more this year. Analyst Joseph Bloomfield retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and increased the target price from £31.50 to £32 on the stock, which closed down 2.5% at £27.74 on Friday. The group reported a record 2021, with revenue up 46% year-on-year and 2022 has ‘started strongly for the company too’ with first-quarter revenue growth of 16% and operating margin guidance of 18-19% maintained despite inflationary pressures. ‘While management is guiding to first half-weighted growth for 2022, we expect the demand outlook to remain bright throughout the year,’ said Bloomfield. ‘We continue to view Diploma as a key “buy” idea in the UK industrials sector, with the shares down by 22% from highs, trading on 29x 2023 earnings.’
quantumx: Anyone have a view on the 20% share price collapse?
r2oo: Good support at this price, should rise from here on

km18: 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
steeplejack: Strong full year financial performance-- Underlying revenue growth 12% year-on-year, well ahead of our 5% financial model and 7% up on FY 2019, driven by our organic growth initiatives and better demand.-- Strong overall acquisition contribution with an outstanding Windy City Wire ("WCW") performance.-- Adjusted operating margin +270bps to 18.9%, supported by our value-add servicing distribution model, offsetting inflation, and well ahead of our 17%+ financial model.-- 51% growth in adjusted earnings per share ("EPS") and 42% proposed increase in total dividend.
adrunkenmarcus: Held DPLM since 2012 and it's compounded well over 20% per year! Assuming the interim dividend is the same proportion of the full year dividend as historically then we may well see as much as a 38% dividend increase for the year as a whole. Perhaps that's optimistic, but they didn't say anything about rebalancing the payouts. One of my top holdings and a 'buy and hold'. I want to enjoy the benefit of it compounding for years to come.
