slogsweep: May due a share split could open it up to a new range of buyers put off by £50 a pop share price. 10 for 1 seems about right. JDG has had an incredible 10 years from 70p
jaf111: management very quick to respond to yesterday's fall in share price......I understand they call an emergency board meeting and this was the response!!!!!! Roll on £60......
nchanning: Mr Cicurel has traditionally been conservative in upgrading forecasts , so don't be surprised to see Judges beat Liberum upgraded forecasts of 206 EPS . Furthermore there is still the firepower to easily add 3-4 million in EBIT through acquisition . Expecting 250 EPS in the near term if this happens and a share price of 5000p
harris tweed: A positive article about JDG in the latest issue of Shares magazine under the headline "Judges Scientific deserves a higher rating" It concludes: "Its shares have frequently traded on a price-to-earnings(PE) multiple of 20 or higher in the past, yet today they change hands at just 14.8-times 2019 forecasts. The stock is therefore a bargain on a relative basis. A re-rating to a PE ratio of 17-times by the end of 2019 would imply a share price above £33.80, or nearly 20% higher than current levels. Yet estimates do not factor in additional business purchases, so forecasts and the share price could go even higher on a 12 to 18-month view." The article was written when the share price was 2850, so half of their suggested 20% uplift has been achieved already.
jane deer: WH Ireland seem to be increasing FY 2018 EPS by 12% and FY2019 by 10% (leaving 19 flat on 18). I bought these shares today for the first time. See if that makes sense. As you say JAF: two successive upgrades but share price down. Multiples do not look excessive. What held me off buying before was JDG's sterling sensitivity - but I now feel that risk is also priced in. No doubt weak sterling is helping the numbers recently.
napoleon 14th: oregano - me too. I sold out years ago thinking 300% was profit enough at c. 500p but they tripled again! They say profit warnings come in threes. David Cicurel is very astute but IMO he's only starting to ascertain the problem, which could be why it has not been quantified. He will have to produce figures to convince anyone experienced that JDG are a buy again, if & when.... Indeed, he's unusually honest in saying that he, & other directors I presume, still doesn't understand why sales slowed up in 2014, so how can he gauge the damage this time? Hence the RNS without figures... I also noticed him saying that a lot of JDG sales are one-offs, hinting that the short term problem with JDG's quality products mean they last 20 years! Perhaps JDG have satisfied their market more than they expected? Uncertainty is always a handicap to a share price, so I'm staying out for now. Last time this happened the share price went from £24 to £12 in two main moves/gaps in under three months! I still like the company, but "caveat emptor".
cockerhoop: Fascinating that the share price increases by over 10% after a tip in SCSW and by 5% after an acquisition that adds 25% to operating profit!
cockerhoop: Pugugly, I'm interested that you have sold appeared to have had negative views on the company when the share price was approx £12.50 suggesting that it would go lower (from memory below £10.00) so i'm intrigued that you didn't sell then if holding at that point and if you were buying it doesn't really fit with your posts. Perhaps you could explain?
cornishman33: SCSW have started a new portfolio this month and JDG is their first purchase (along with OPAY). The previous portfolio rose about 1200% over 13 years, so I will be following with interest. I already have both these stocks so I hope the good performance continues. I am aware that sometimes the share price has already risen a bit before they announce their purchase, making it difficult to buy at the price quoted,but I think that counter that they ignore divi income, and in the previous portfolio a few of the shares produced very good divi returns, like PHTM.
gengulphus: Not sure what to make of it, but the share price has certainly taken a knock over the last couple of days, ... I'd have thought it's pretty clear what has happened... The share price had risen around 15% in the last month or so, and the buyers will have included both long-term and short-term investors. The latter will have been attracted by the momentum and hoping to sell for a quick profit, and they will know that 15% per month is a rate of share price increases well beyond what any company can sustain for more than weeks or maybe a few months, so they're looking for any sign of the rise faltering with the aim of taking profits. When the share price remained pretty much unchanged over Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday last week, that was the signal for some of them to start selling - and once that caused the share price to fall noticably, that triggered others into selling. Meanwhile, long-term investors would also know the short-term price rise is unsustainable and so be thinking more in terms of buying on the dips and less in terms of buying immediately. With short-term investors selling and long-term ones waiting to buy, the share price is going to drop... At some point, though, the short-term investors will run out of shares they want to sell and/or out of profits to take, and the long-term investors who want to buy more will decide there's been enough of a dip to start buying again, and then the share price falls will cease and probably reverse into rises again... Obviously that picture is oversimplified - both groups will contain a wide variety of attitudes towards the shares. But I believe it's the essence of what is going on here - and indeed a frequent pattern of events across the market. Gengulphus
