jeffian: This from citywire - "Peel Hunt backs Diploma’s acquisition Diploma’s (DPLM) acquisition of Windy City Wire reassures Peel Hunt that the mergers and acquisitions (M&A) strategy is on track and reiterates the industrial machinery group as a defensive growth stock. Analyst Henry Carver reiterated his ‘add’ recommendation and increased the target price from £21.50 to £24. The shares were trading at £21.90 yesterday. Carver said the £194m acquisition of the US-based distributor of low-voltage wire and cable was ‘perhaps a statement of intent from the new management team’. ‘It certainly reassures us that the M&A strategy remains firmly on track and gives an idea of what sort of deals are out there,’ he said. ‘At our target price, Diploma would trade at a full-year 2021 price-earnings of 36.6 times, which we think is an appropriate rating for a stock with Diploma’s defensive growth characteristics and proven model.’"
thewheeliedealer: Hi all, My mate Peter @Conkers3 and myself did a ‘Twin Petes Investing’ Podcast a few days ago and part of our discussion includes DPLM. We also chatted about loads of other Stocks and the outlook for Markets and as usual a fair bit of educational stuff with regards to Investing. Anyway, if you use Apple, Audioboom, Overcast or Spotify you can find it under the 'Conkers Corner' Channel (you want TPI Podcast 32) and you can find it on Soundcloud at the link below. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful, Cheers, WD @wheeliedealer hTTps://
fionascott1234: Diploma: RBC Capital Markets downgrades to underperform with a target price of 1,500p.THAT'S A 25% DROP.NOW LET'S JUST SEE IF THEY'VE SHORTED DIPLOMA........
jeffian: Blimey! Well done gco1133a. It's certainly a multi-bagger for me but not quite so dramatic since I adopted a policy of continuing to add to my winners, as that brings my average cost up. 'Speaking' of big-baggers, my best would be FOUR on 75x. (Unfortunately, that's 75x the price at which I sold it!!!) Doh!
gco1133a: Today's price move makes it a 30x bagger for me!
jeffian: Not that anyone takes any notice, another nice little acquisition today for DPLM. Companies that "grow by acquisition" have become rather unfashionable recently. It did for RPC after Northern Trust accused them of using takeover accounting to hide a lack of performance in the underlying business but DPLM is a different kettle of fish. Highly cash-generative and usually with net cash and no borrowings on the balance sheet, it is in a virtuous cycle of reinvesting (genuine cash) profits for growth.
alphabeta4: Don't think so, this is just doing it's normal trend IMHO. I've added a trade at 1446. The seals stuff in North America is pretty trivial, being a sub part of one of three divisions which was still up 4% and DPLM tends to do well when the oil price rises as it ups capex spending so I would expect that to reverse anyway.
pillion: Sold all my DPLM on 7th May at 1,532.25p; profit of about 32% Still a solid growth Co but decided to cash in Good luck to holders
losos: jeffian - Thanks for your thoughts in posts 631/633/636 Replicate my thoughts also. As someone who looks for dividend income I note that at current share price they are at the low end. I keep forgetting to do the yield calc on my buy price and not what they are now haha. If there was a bid it would make my decision easy haha.
jeffian: I find it very difficult to know when or if to sell and end up sitting frozen like a rabbit in the headlights. I used to keep a dummy portfolio of shares I sold and I stopped because it became so depressing; it was my best portfolio! Using very much the same argument as #626, I sold half my AVON at around 450p (today? £13). The one that really hurts is FOUR (sold at 49p, price today.........£;23). I'll probably end up doing nothing here but not quite sure what is driving this bullishness.
