Tudes 54.2% free float according to Stockopedia. That shouldn't be a problem, but the NMS of 1500 shares could well be.

Doesn't take too much to move the share price given the free float & lots of sellers out today

DiscoDave4I have calculated that revenue will be down on H1 by about £1m however up on previous H217 by about £3mTherefore compared to last years H2 profits should also be up! The company states that the revenue mix has changed due to better Christmas trading!

Hi Tom, yes, in my opinion I think they'll comfortably beat the FY18 forecast & FY19 forecasts will then be upgraded. I can't see H2 FY18 EPS declining vs prior yr which would be required if they were only going to deliver 16.3p (basic) for FY18.

Tudes100Are you saying profitability for FY18 could be above what was guided for FY19 ??It would appear that revenue for H218 is £3m more than H217I think the figures look good but the directors could have accentuated the positives more in that trading statement instead of focusing on the macro economic climate! Put a bit of a downer on it imo!

DD, at HY basic EPS was +23.3%. I suspect rev's have been suppressed by US$ ex rate weakness as 60% of their rev's are billed in dollars but think their profitability will come in strongly as their production costs are largely in US$ as well. For them to do 16.3p (basic) in the year in line with the broker fcst, H2 would need to be 7.3p, a 10% decline on H2 FY17. Not going to happen imo, would suggest we'll see 17-17.5p for FY18 making a nonsense of the FY19 forecasts. Only one broker covering to my knowledge and I think they will just be upgrading forecasts after finals.

Very true RP, can’t see anything negative in today’s update. That cash will be used eventually imv

I like the company and am happy to hold and perhaps add on further weakness. Considered statement, they throw off cash and I think there is more growth to come. Negatives include recent ish PMR sales (could be for various reasons) and on going brexit/political concerns which have mass application and are hard to quantify. Things change but at the minute not sure I would know where else to put my money if I sold.

Hi Dave - for me it's a company I'd expect to hold for a long time, barring a significant change in the story. I guess at times as with any other company the valuation will be quite high and other times relatively low due to vagaries of the stock market but that's not a reason to change my view. I'm not sure I'd base my investment decision on a broker forecast in any case.

The rating is not high compared to other companies growing in a similar manner but I guess that's because the markets generally are valuing such companies highly.I think it's a terrific business. The cash generation and revenue growth are good. The cash pile is starting to build nicely. Could be a special dividend at some point (or an acquisition i suppose). High quality company, happy to hold.

Have these on my watch list. Looks like about 17p eps for year end. Possibly it's rating based on only 17% earnings growth is a bit toppy. Also, looking back a couple of years it's usually H2 weighted but possibly not this FY?.Loads of cash though!.DD

Okay update. A slight miss on revenue: c. £75m vs consensus £75.5m and my estimate of £75.3m. A beat on cash: £22.8m vs my estimate of £20.5m.

Good post tomyumgoong. I spoke to another company sales manager very recently who told me they charge more for direct on line sales than dealers charge for the same product. So better margin and dealers happy not to be undercut. Again, this may not be the case here but you can see why it might be.

garethbevan/alteregoIf this is the case I don't think it's a bad thing! Most people now shop online for these goods rather than the high st. I am sure Focusrite would be focussing on their more profitable retailers rather than ones that sell minimal stock numbers! Focusrite now sell through Amazon and you can buy directly from the website! Europe's largest music retailer Thoman ( a German retailer/etailer,),whom I have visited rank Focusrite very highly on their website! And you can see units sold also! If this is the case I think this is a shrewd move! Why waste money sending reps up and down the country servicing small retailers that only buy a few units and have 30/60 days to pay! The future is online!

garethbevan, thanks. It may not be the case here but in another company in which I invested, they regularly cull dealers who do not shift enough product to be of economic benefit. Makes more sense to focus your offorts on those who provide good revenue.
