Indeed but a quiet BB is invariably a good sign,a noisy board is often one under stress with a falling share price.KWS is a lock away in my book along with Croda,AZN,Volex,Dechra,Indivior,SDI etc,companies that have shown that they can handle the current deteriorating economic environment.

thanks alpha for the comments- i don't follow hard and fast rules apart of course from having a higher proportion om my investments in the winners-kws has gone though difficult periods where aim vcts for intance have taken profits - it s more luck than anything else that i decided to keep my holding

ali, I'm conscious (like most here I suspect) that I am not a qualified financial adviser so can only give you what I do for you to make up your own mind. I have a personal rule where I won't go above 12% in any one share and typically will hold around 25-30 at any one time. I am a full time professional investor of 7 years and have found 25-30 personally is about the limit I can handle. So my average position is around 3.3%. If I go above 12% in one I will just top slice it to get it back under and use the cash for something else. This has been the case for companies like Futr which I still think are fantastic but I have made more than 10x my initial stake. If I have something which I see significant upside but I only hold say around 8% then I will add and push towards my 12% rule. Basically I want those where I see the greatest return to have the highest amount in subject to the amount of risk if it going wrong. For KWS I had held c6% of my portfolio on it and added to take myself up to c8% on the update. FWIW I note it would be around £39-40 if valued on the same basis as September representing significant upside, albeit that can be said for lots of companies in the tech sector right now! IMHO the EBITDA guidance also looks very undemanding so this may prove conservative with the net cash for acquisitions adding further opportunities for upgrades. Good luck with what you choose to do, I think there are no hard and fast rules but the above has worked well for me.

Anyone know what is happening to KWS Russian studios in Moscow and St. Petersburg? The share seems to have fallen recently so wondering if these are worth a punt or whether the Russian studios will cause them issues?

...from last year... Keywords Studios PLc plc issued interims for the six months to June 2021. Top line revenue growth was strong rising 37.6% to €238.7m in H1 21. EBITDA was stronger rising 55.7% to €40.8m. Profit before tax was stronger again rising 97.3% to €21.9m. And EPS was strongest of the lot rising 119.8% to 20.86c. Valuation is not cheap, forward PE ratio is around 44, very expensive for the market as a whole, just about middle third for the high growth Software & Computer Services sector. Investors shouldn’t expect any multiple rerating higher, but with EPS growth reaching 100%+ rates, returns should be strong anyway. And given the commercial performance KWS is delivering, the probability of downward rerating is relatively low. BUY.... .... from WealthOracleAM

Absolutely, the sector is healthy and KWS look to be super healthy and set for growth on Revenue and earnings. Market madness, as somebody said.

It looks to me like KWS is tracking the decline in tech and indeed other industry stocks (save for energy) so it's not KWS specific. TM17 shows a similar pattern in last few weeks. A couple of fairly big KWS buys in the last week hopefully shows that there is hope for the future and a recovery once all the market madness subsides - or rather IF it subsides.

I would expect this huge acquisition to prompt further interest in KWS. It is, after all a major outsource supplier to the vast industry of video gaming, including already working for Activision. Berenberg are almost certain to review their 3450p target price upwards next time they review and Jefferies may well go higher than the 3700p which they already have.

Interesting company with a pretty staggering revenue record - lots of add-on acquisitions of course - and a pretty impressive shareholder roster. But not a lot of comments here having been a real pi favourite a few years ago. Sadly that means that there is very little research available to the private investor, though I see some 14 brokers follow the company I can only get Edison on Research Tree. Stockopedia was indicating Eu479 revenue and Eu54mn net profit for this year. After the 10mn issue last year the company should be OK for cash for a while. I suppose the burning questions are any negative impact on the games market as the pandemic recedes in developed nations and short-term the news from China on a crackdown on games companies though I know not how this may affect them.But if Keywords is starting to see margins improving at operating level the apparent high cost of entry might not be so intimidating. I am guessing that the share price weakness today is just short-term traders getting out on the good news.
