Encouraging update, they'll have done 60-65p in H2 compared to 41.1p in H1. Order book sustained through the 2nd half coupled with exchange rate tailwinds means it's looking good for 2016.

Should be a trading statement out next week (last year it was accompanied by an acquisition) I can easily see this on a PE of 15 - whilst they've had a growth hiccup recently they have increased EPS by 5 times over the last 6 years.

Continuing to fall back 0 p/e as quoted by fundamentals still too high for a company that while growing has slowed the %age rate of growth significantly. Any thougths as to a fair p/e objective going forwqrd ?

A very illiquid stock so can move very fast on limited buy\ sell activity also usually a VERY wide spread so not a good stock to try and deal. Agree with oregano above also DC is a safe pair of hands but sales could be under pressure from a slow down in capital investment and China BUT possibly gain from an increasing regulatory environment. IMO however the multibagger days are probably gone - or only achievable over a very long (possibly 10 plus years) time scale.

A not insignificant rise of 5% on Friday.

Momentum Oregano - they had loads of earnings beats so developed a sizeable premium to the sector. Could be a good longer term play but needs sales to recover Imo which isn't easy if China continues to slow.

interest returning after results roadshow, which bodes well. I am unsure why this ever traded above £20, but at £15 they appear respectable value. these guys are focussed on growth rather than yield so I am sure they would rather retain capital to acquire, and if they can pick up businesses on 5x then surely they should. SCSW will give them a big write up in the next issue I am sure, though unsure whether that makes any difference.

A line that caught my eye was ' The Board is conscious of the impending withdrawal of the dividend tax credit and will therefore consider paying a substantial second interim dividend before the end of the current tax year to utilise the current tax legislation before the changes come into effect. The Board would then seek to pay a nominal final dividend in the new tax year.' I am wondering if this means the board are considering a significant return of cash to shareholders, rather than a normal divi increase of around 10%, in advance of changes in the tax regime. My guess is not, because if they were considering paying significantly more in total than they would under their normal dividend policy, I think they would probably have said so! Instead, I think they're saying that what they would normally pay for the final dividend will mostly be paid as a 2nd interim dividend (which doesn't require AGM approval and so can be paid earlier than a final dividend), leaving just a small remainder to be paid as a final dividend. I.e. just bringing the payment of some of the usual sort of dividend forward. But it is a guess and I could be wrong! Gengulphus

Cornishman33, I read it as bringing forward the 2016 dividend into 2015 for tax purposes. Not mad keen on the idea personally as I'd prefer them to be spending the money on lower rated acquisitions. I didn't expect a sharp fall as they expect to hit FY expectations and backed it up with tangible evidence in the improving order book. From memory 13.7 weeks of orders is as high as I can recall (I've held since 2009). Armfield appears another decent buy with it's order book being fuller than the other underlying companies.

After reading these results this morning I expected a sharp fall in the SP, but it seems the slightly optimistic outlook and the fact that the share price has already fallen ahead of these figures resulted in a small rise. A line that caught my eye was ' The Board is conscious of the impending withdrawal of the dividend tax credit and will therefore consider paying a substantial second interim dividend before the end of the current tax year to utilise the current tax legislation before the changes come into effect. The Board would then seek to pay a nominal final dividend in the new tax year.'

Results out http://www.investegate.co.uk/judges-scientificplc--jdg-/rns/half-yearly-report/201509250700281675A/ Worse than I expected - Revenue, profits and dividend UP but only as a result of acquisitions - EPS down "Adjusted* basic earnings per share down 18.3% to 41.1p (H1 2014: 50.3p"); Will need to crunch the rest of the numbers to get a fair analysis and calculate a forward p/e - Assuming same run rate for 2nd half year then eps of some 82p -v- previous market consensus of 102. p/e would increase to some 18 or 19 -v- previous consensus of 13.1 at 1470p. OK I see chairman says "your Board remains confident in the ability of the Group to meet market expectations for the full year" BUT given slow down in China and the emerging markets I personally suspect that it will prove very difficult to meet the expectations but with the improved order book they should improve on the run rate. Will need to wait and see how the market opens. .

I thnik you will find that OXIG had an almost glamour rating whereas Judges' PER of about 15 discounts a lot of currency headwinds etc.

Don't want to be negative but isn't there risk of read across from OXIG here?

3 Of My Favourite Small Caps: Judges Scientific PLC, AFC Energy plc & Boohoo.Com PLC Shares in Judges Scientific (LSE: JDG) are down by 4.5% today after the scientific instruments specialist released an interim update. Although it expects to meet market expectations for the full-year, Judges Scientific is now guiding towards a year-on-year fall in its half-year earnings, with a build-up in its order book apparently causing organic revenue to be hit. However, it does expect an improved second half of the year, with the interim order book having been built up in recent months. http://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2015/07/23/3-of-my-favourite-small-caps-judges-scientific-plc-afc-energy-plc-boohoo-com-plc/?

A loose translation: The good news is that we're getting orders quite fast, fast enough to fit in with our planned budget for the year. The bad news is that we're processing the orders and converting them into profits somewhat more slowly than they're coming in. As a result, the earnings in our interim results will be a bit down on last year. We expect to deal with that in the second half, getting back to the earnings that the market expects for the full year. Gengulphus
