Do not forget that pretty much a quarter of the market cap is covered by net cash here. TFW are going to be at my Mello investor show in Derby in 6-8th November which is great news if any of you want to meet the management. mello2014.com

Yes, stellar results IMO, from a long term stellar performer. I bought a few today for the EEZY2 portfolio. http://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=30375760&from=713 TFW have compounded revenue growth at 6% since 1998 and margins have generally improved over that period. That's really a fantastic performance. Ben Graham's (2 x growth rate) +8 formula suggests a P/E of 20 would not be unreasonable. Illiquidity and big family holdings etc may put off a few but pretty good value here I think.

Good results this morning that will probably get lost in all the news about Scottish Independence. Interesting to hear the comments about the LED/non-LED markets and what is driving change or lack of it. No doubt in my mind that LED will eventually triumph and that there is plenty of money to be made by companies who are actively involved in managing the change.......however chaotic it may prove to be. The special divi. also helps and I'm expecting the share price to catch up some lost ground in the run up to Xmas.

I am sure they are doing fine. They have never presented to investors before but they are going to be at my Mello investor show in Derby in November which is great news.

Things very quiet here of late and the share price has hardly moved. We need some news but I'm still confident that the company will perform.

Holding back the share price is one small investment trust who has been a long-term backer. However, it now appears to be taking profits. Surprisingly, given the quality of Thorpe, there does not yet appear to be an institutional buyer to mop up their holdings. In time, that balance will reverse so long as Thorpe's P&L remains healthy. The turning point could come with a boost to the dividend.

Looks like the company has hoovered up all of the large sale that is showing up on the turnover figures at the end of the first week in May (just over 1% of the equity). Will obviously enhance future eps and at 125p it seems like a good deal to me. Hopefully, we should make some progress from here.

The last buy-back was, I believe, from Simon Knott's Rights & Issues Investment Trust. Maybe this latest transaction will clear that particular seller.

Big chunk of stock bought into Treasury today with little movement in the share price Would expect some kind of movement over the next few days.

Sp been a bit weak since the results so have topped up. The news report about Hounslow resident's having to put up black out curtains/blinds up after the local authority installed LED street lights caught my eye last night (no pun intended). This particular council is obviously clueless as to how these things should be used but it is yet another indicator of things to come. Thorpe went from 25% to 35% LED in 2013 and there must be a massive potential demand for their services. Let's hope that they come up with some better designs than the Hounslow Council sub contractors!

Agreed....solid results and little or no reaction. Positive write up from Paul Scott...I like his last comment "That's good value in my opinion, for a quality business. I don't own any, but probably should, as it's very much my type of company."

Results out:- http://www.investegate.co.uk/thorpe-f-w---plc--tfw-/rns/half-yearly-report/201403200700077297C/ CHAIRMAN'S INTERIM STATEMENT I am pleased to say that revenues for the half year ending on December 31st 2013 increased by 12% resulting in a group operating profit increase of 7%. Investment income and other factors gave a basic earnings per share increase of 8% on continuing operations. My last half year and full year reports explained a number of reasons why our 2012/13 year had fallen short of our expectations but I did indicate that order input had resumed to more satisfactory levels. The general improvement has been seen in all parts of the business over the first six months of the financial year with the march of the LED light source being ever more prominent in all sectors. I can report that the group is currently producing 35% of its revenue in LED format, up from 25% at the turn of the financial year. Group export efforts continue with sales growth in excess of 10% compared to the equivalent six months last year. Some notable successes have been achieved by Sugg in Canada, Solite in Ireland, Thorlux with a welcome modest step-change upwards at its German operation, improvements in Australia and better vibrations coming now from the Republic of Ireland. Notwithstanding continuing investment in the design of these sophisticated LED luminaires and systems, the list of plant investments includes installation of the previously mentioned powder coating facility at Philip Payne and the £0.5m cleanroom facility at Thorlux to produce populated LED electronic circuit boards for the group. This line augments the small line previously reported as working 24/7 at the time of the last report. Our quest for improved sales ability also continues with further appointments at field sales level both home and abroad, and further, at business development level in the UK. A brief comment should be made at this time in isolation about TRT Lighting, our start-up street and road tunnel lighting enterprise. TRT, having completed design and tooling operations for its initial products, is now increasing production as orders gather pace, providing a welcome narrowing of group financial support. In the light of the results outlined above your company will pay a dividend of 1.05p per share (Interim 2013 1.00p) for the half year to December 31st 2013, representing an increase of 5%. Everyone can go back to sleep now :-)

ygor706, I think a similar roll-out is occurring in the UK, local to me large areas of street lighting are being replaced with Led. Unfortunately too early I suspect for TRT to bid for the contract. They should though pick up a chunk of the UK business and the lighting heads have been well received and a good review in luminare magazine.

My understanding is that a Japanese study recently showed that if the authorities decided to convert all of the traffic lights in Tokyo to a LED system the total cost could be recovered in 2 years. All you need to know here really!

Seems only to be 3 buys of 2000 shares in a couple of minutes just before 12.55 (likely to be 1 individual). Doesn't take much to move TFW.
