Hi Rathkum. I could have made a couple of suggestions for today's slip in the share price but debt level would not have been one of them. As you'll know, the absolute debt level for any business doesn't matter. What matters is the size of the debt in relation to the size of the business. Net debt only went up by £9.5m or 6.8%, whereas revenue went up by 16.4% and underlying profit by 16.5%. So, the proportionate size of debt has actually reduced This was confirmed within the interim statement, Gearing at 31 May 2017 was 2.5 times (2016: 2.7 times) ... The covenant requirement is net debt/EBITDA < 3.0. So, LWB's debt level is safe, down from last year and should go down further with the receipts from today's sale announcement.

Debt level seems to have unsettled the market.

"we have seen little evidence of a sustained pick-up in demand in our markets, we are pleased that growth continues to come as a result of our disciplined approach to sales and marketing and offering clients innovative solutions"

Singer downgrades to 'hold' - maybe the reason for the early selling? Peel Hunt retains 'buy'.

Looking at this morning's trades, some holders appear to have exited in a hurry. 17,400 shares printed at 75p, amongst others. I'm not selling. They are almost certain to make more progress in H2 and in 2017/18. For me, it's a growth story and paying a good dividend. Improving the quality of the Group takes time. It is proceeding and today's announced £5.1m net proceeds will give a better return elsewhere in the Group. Share price has recovered a bit now, 82/83p in the market (down 2.5p today).

Some good strong buys here of late. We are around 3 year highs but in my opinion prospects continue to look good.

Thanks, Mattboxy. :-) Hmmm ... Epwin, yes it's going well. A good one for you. :-) I may be wrong but I've decided not to chase that one higher. We'll be into May next week. Perhaps I should be patient and wait for a market correction? We'll see. Thanks, Rathkum. :-) I have in mind that Low and Bonar could one day develop a new, big revenue product. Yes, I may be wishing for the same in 10 years time but, if it is to happen, I think the area of filtration is much more likely to do it than the Coated Textiles division, for instance. I'm also holding Porvair (PRV), which is a specialist filter designer and manufacturer. It is producing steady revenue and profit growth - been a good long term one for me. A similar performance from Low and Bonar would put a big smile on my face.

Hello Hvs. Have you missed the boat here? You seem to be irritated by the rise? Moving on, I'm a little short on investment ideas atm. Anything I should be looking at?

Does it though? I was surprised how muted the rise was after the excellent TA, but I don't think this break out coming now can be explained by a tip by the woefully unreliable Questor. TO rumours I wonder? - Personally I bought in late last year, partly due to its attractiveness to suitors.

Misunderstood and undervalued, buy this British textile specialist with global reach. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/investing/shares/misunderstood-undervalued-buy-british-textile-specialist-global/

I think we'll be seeing £1 here very soon. Very undemanding valuation and lots of growth ahead, one more round of positive results will see a significant re rating.

Low & Bonar share ‘unsustainably cheap’, says Berenberg Plastics group Low & Bonar (LWB) will need to prove to investors that ‘production interruptions’ are a thing of the past if the ‘unsustainably cheap’ stock is to reach its potential, says Berenberg. Analyst Ian Osburn retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of 112p on the stock, which was trading down 1.2%, or 1p, at 79.5p at the time of writing. ‘It is clear that management must deliver on its strategic plans for our “buy” case to hold. It is likely that the market will have to become confident that production interruptions are a thing of the past for the stock to reach our price target,’ he said. ‘We are happy with that risk/reward profile and see time to purchase the stock running out ahead of reported results confirming the improvement,’ he added. ‘With new management delivering on its plans, we expect Low & Bonar’s earnings per share growth and dividend yield to be the highest in the sector over the next three years.’

This from N+1 Singer We upgraded at the finals in early February and this update confirms that trends remain positive at the start of FY17 with expectations of c.20% PBT growth unchanged. We continue to feel that latent value can be extracted from LWB, particularly if the operational issues that have affected results in past periods can be completely resolved. We feel that this should be an opportune time to invest on a P/E of c.10.9x FY17 and, with a solid update, nudge our TP up to 85p (P/E of 12x) and retain our ....
