Got a little overbought so the RSI has been cooling off, add in the fact it's an illiquid share & the result is a nice pullback which I've just used to add some more shares.

European consumer confidence and spending power are continuing to recover so I expect a strong Q2+Q3, in stark contrast to last year. This should result in a comfortable beat vs expectations.

Target price 200p+ by the August interims...

In the event SPEC manages to become profitable in the future, I wonder if it will acquire or found retail outlets for its products. If so, it would become fully vertically integrated, much like its competitor, Essilor Luxottica, worth over 50 billion euros.

Marlborough’s Feld spies a bright future for Inspecs

Eyewear maker and distributor Inspecs (SPEC) has had a tough time, but a cost-cutting exercise should keep it on track, says Marlborough manager Guy Feld. He holds the company in his £892m Marlborough UK Micro Cap Growth fund and his latest update noted the stock had been a contributor to performance this year. The increase followed an ‘in-line trading update’, which saw the shares soar more than 35% on the day. "The company had a difficult 2022, impacted by global supply chain issues and negative foreign exchange movements. ‘Management has committed to reducing costs and the order book is solid, leaving Inspecs well placed to capitalise moving forward." he said

This was being tipped several months ago as a fantastic company, when share price was more than double. A fantastic opportunity due to a seller with a very illiquid stock. Can go higher quickly just as it came down.

II will hoover everything up, it's their type of company. A global manufacturer and supplier is 85+ countries.

There's something to be said for taking profits when you think a share price has gotten a little frothy. But SPEC is barely warming up at less than 1/3 of its historic valuation.

Share tip: Inspecs has a view to making you richer
Lucy Tobin
Sunday August 14 2022, 12.01am, The Sunday Times

Glasses do not feature much in the photographs of the board members of Inspecs, which is striking because the company sold more than ten million frames last year.

Inspecs, based in Bath, makes spectacles to its own designs as well as for brands such as Radley, Superdry, Ted Baker and Lulu Guinness. It sells to 70,000 shops and opticians in 80-plus countries. And after people had stared at themselves on screens during lockdown video calls, sales boomed once restrictions were loosened. Turnover at the firm soared to $246.5 million (£203 million) in 2021, up from $47.4 million in Covid-splattered 2020.

Inspecs’ shares reacted accordingly: having fallen to 147p in April 2020 when shops were shut, they rose to a near record 404p in the same month a year later. Now, though, the shares stand at 213p, even though the firm announced its maiden dividend (1.25p a share), and even though management bought into the dip and showed their own faith in their business. Chief executive Robin Totterman, who founded the business in 1988, recently bought £100,000 worth of stock; he owns 18.3 per cent.

Inspecs is entrepreneurial — investing in new factories, rolling out a new, eco-friendly range, and signing a deal to supply lenses directly to Amazon. But it has heft, too: chairman Lord MacLaurin helped build Tesco to the juggernaut it is today.

While the latest accounts show losses, due to lingering pandemic-related expenses and investment, Totterman has hailed “strong trading” in 2022. “The significant progress we are making proves that our growth strategy is the right one,” he said. The company has $65 million in debt facilities, giving plenty of headroom.

Director buys are meaningless, directors here were buying in the 300’s.

My view to wait until mid/end 2023 seems to have been correct. In 30 years of trading I have never, ever, seen a share price immediately recover after a profit warning. I expect the share price to fall/plateau for at least six months or so.

Yes, the share price has fallen along with many other respectable companies in recent months. If you haven't already read it, take a look at the Aim Admission document available on the company's website investor page. Interesting that at one time it owned a licence for French Connection, but it seems to have now expired. Revenue in 2016 was around 22m dollars, 57m in 2018, and now 246m. It seems to be growing quickly via acquisitions and organic growth. I've been topping up at these low share prices as unless they put a foot wrong with a poorly-judged acquisition or there is some other unforeseen event, it should continue to grow and the profits will follow. I anticipate holding these for the long term.
