Recommended as a "Buy" in I C so that should be the kiss of death
Gooch and Housego Plc (GHH) the specialist manufacturer of optical components and systems, issued Interims for the six months ended 31 March 2022 this morning. Revenue was down 7.4% to £54.1m, constrained by COVID-related staff absences and supply chain disruption. Adjusted profit before tax was therefore down 26.6% to £3.6m, with adjusted basic EPS down to 11.8p. But demand for the Group's technologies and capabilities remained strong and the Group’s order book reached another record level of £119.9m (31 March 2021: £92.8m), an increase of 29.2% or 25.6% at constant currency. The balance sheet remains healthy, profitability ratios are solid for the sector, valuation is ok. But share price is still in a 12-month correction so lacks momentum. GHH is a profitable, steadily growing business, but it is a share to monitor for now.... ...from WealthOracle
"Order intake for the six month period was 142% of revenue, compared with 109% of revenue for the second half of FY 2021, reflecting the accelerating growth in demand for our products and services. At 31 March 2022 our order book was at a record level of GBP119.9m (31 March 2021: GBP92.8m), an increase of 29.2%, or 25.6% at constant currency, compared with the same time last year." Well, with a forward looking view that order book looks strong. So, will this prove to be a year of two halves, as portrayed in thse two statements? "Despite the market trends supporting the longer-term growth of G&H's A&D business, revenue declined by 28.8% during the first six months of FY2022, compared with the equivalent period last year" "Despite the disappointing revenue performance of our Boston site in the period, its order book at the end of March 2022 was almost 50% higher than the equivalent period last year.....Overall we expect a stronger second half and A&D remains an area of significant long term growth potential for G&H."

Just bought back some more stock at almost same price as March 2020. Bargain, I hope.
Anyone on TECHINVEST, I am wanting to form a group of similar minded people to discuss its views etc and information. Click my name and send a message.

I've bought back a few of the units of this stock I trade. It seems good value at this price (9.20) I'll add more if it drops further.
Re. CML, "Well documented supply chain challenges are still a feature of the general semiconductor market although the Group continues to manage the situation well and has been successful at minimising the impact to our customer base." That was the trading statement. We haven't seen the results yet. They may have well have managed it better - but until we see the numbers we don't know the impact at CML - only that they are saying that they have "minimised" the impact. Re GHH - if you ignore the covid 2020 drop then we are now back approaching lows not seen since 2016. G.
management failure to control the supply chain or have enough staff, blaming Covid, to complete the orders. When one compares with CML which faced similar challenges, GHH seems to have fallen short although the increase in the order book is welcome. whether they will be able timely to deliver on the order book seems in question.
Xd 7.7p next week won't make much of a dent on the share price

Lindowcross, interesting - thanks for sharing. G.
Once in a blue moon I buy Investors' Chronicle and did so this week: low and behold, there was a buy recommendation for Gooch! The article states the business aims to generate equal amounts of business from Industrial, Aerospace and Life Sciences. Aerospace already does so, it continues, but Life Sciences is at 23%. The buy recommendation seems to be based upon Peel Hunt's note. I wonder if it's IC's article which is causing the modest mark up in price over last few days?
That certainly justifies your purchase and you have backed a winner, but a current yield of 1% is about average for the AIM sector as a whole. ( I was wrong about the 20p , it is 12p this year)
wad collector
Wad, the valuation is looking more attractive all the time. As for the 20p divi - I have been receiving those by cheque for over 20 years now on shares I originally purchased for 67.5p and 72p Over the years they have paid for themselves. :0) G.
Certainly seems unloved by the market with further falls today. It seems to be well run, sitting in a niche and with optimistic statements about the future and yet the share price keeps dropping. At some point a tech company has to be viewed as a manufacturer rather than an R&D shed , and maybe that is how G&H is being viewed after 60yrs? Let's face it , the divi of 20p is not the attraction.

Marked down on what I would view to be solid results. Debt of about 1% of market cap. Some supply constraint. And the clever folk at R&D pushing out new products. Nibbled a few more. Reckon we might see £10 yet (or even lower?) in this market so keeping some powder dry. Cash Generation Cash flow generated from operating activities was GBP16.8m, down from GBP21.6m in the prior year. This reduction was due to the non-underlying costs incurred in relation to the site rationalisation programme in the year amounting to GBP5.1m. Adjusted cashflow generated from operating activities, which excluded these non-underlying costs, was GBP21.9m (2020: GBP22.5m). This was the result of improved profitability, supported by disciplined working capital management. In total working capital reduced by GBP0.5m in the year despite the 6.4% increase in business volumes compared to the prior year. Cashflows for tangible and intangible fixed asset additions totalled GBP6.2m (2020: GBP6.4m). The final earn out payment for the Group's acquisition of the ITL business was made in the period. The payment of GBP3.25m represented that business achieving at its maximum level. The payment of an interim dividend in the year totalled GBP1.1m. The Group's strong cash generation allowed the repayment of $19.2m (GBP14.1m) of borrowings and the Group closed the year with net debt of GBP9.2m (2020: GBP14.7m) or GBP2.6m (2020: GBP6.5m) when lease liabilities are excluded. G.
Any thing in the budget that could help here?
Another solid trading update today. G.
let's hope so Garth. Hopefully after the re-structuring efforts they will start to turn their hand to making serious money as well as producing top-quality tech products.
Lindowcross, Another good day. Could it be that we are heading back to the dizzy heights of £18 and beyond? G.
Garth, well done for holding on for so long, even if you let some go along the way. I've held for a decade or so and like the company. No doubt if this was listed in the USA it would be worth at least double its current quoted value.
Ditto that comment again re interims. G.
Decent update and appears that the market liked it. Consolidation activities going well. G.
Well run company in interesting areas. I have held a small core continually for over 20 years Netty. I just wish I had held on to more. 67.5p purchase price on the ones I have in paper still. The thread header was of course tongue in cheek when started almost 20 years ago. Maybe it should now read - no future in laser, fibre-optics and space communications...? The PE is high in the event of a massive market sell off. But in that event I expect I would be selling my vinyl collection and backing the truck up. Of limited help, I know. But those is my feelings. Kind regards, G.
Anyone got a feeling about this?
