I agree Losos. They are doing a lot with additive manufacturing, and have now got into plastics. I’m glad it wasn’t sold. In fact I am very impressed with what is happening in Aerospace and Sinter. Auto is a bit quieter but they are obviously positioning for the electric market. It just shows what the previous GKN board could have done, and didn’t.

Thanks B+ - GKN had a 'sinter powder metal' business a long time before the MRO takeover but it never seemed to go anywhere. There was even talk about selling it off at the MRO takeover time. Now it seems that MRO have given this division it's head and they have come up with some interesting new markets for the process. I like the idea that they are headquartering it in Holland thus bypassing any (possible) Brexit negatives. Note that I say 'possible' because non one knows what the Brexit scenario will deliver but I'm absolutely convinced we need to get it sorted PDQ, whatever the outcome things cannot be allowed to drift on for another three months, let alone another three years haha..

This news release from GKN Additive is for Losos GKN Additive has announced it is preparing to locally produce metal powders for additive manufacturing in Europe after identifying a high demand. The company will look to supply metal additive manufacturing powders through its GKN Additive Materials business segment at its Hueckeswagen facility, which already houses a team of GKN Sinter Metals experts. It believes by locating itself closer to its European partners, they will be able to achieve quicker turnaround times. GKN Additive Materials, which was set up after GKN Additive and GKN Hoeganaes merged their expertise, is warehousing standard additive manufacturing powders, such as 316L, 17-4PH and 20MnCr5, but will also work to develop custom materials specific to customer needs. The Hoeganaes side of the GKN Additive Materials recently completed the first trials of producing water atomised additive manufacturing powders in its high-volume facility in Buzau, Romania. Alloys to be produced during these trials include ANCOR AM 4600 and ANCOR AM DP600, low alloys steels which are both used in automotive and structural applications. Research groups in Europe and customers in North America are currently evaluating these materials. The primary motivation behind the company’s increasing presence in Europe is to enable its customers using additive technologies to reduce time-to-market. GKN Additive says it hears of customers often struggling to forecast prototyping projects enough to allow for a four to six-week lead time, working off one-week powder requests. By positioning itself closer to these companies, GKN will now be able to deliver powders more efficiently and react to subsequent requests more quickly.

Losos is back! What a relief from all those dull posts about directors’ bonuses and wallet photos. All we need now is a post from ‘hvs’ about toilets and people on benefits!

Yes, the good old days may be returning. - Bragging and other rubbish from the 3 stooges. - 'Horse & Hound' news from Losos. - Expert analysis of the market from Minerve. - A portfolio of attractive Wallet Photos from myself. - MRO shares driving forward. - PurpleBricks about to fall backwards.

Glad to hear from you Losos. Yes MRO doing ok. I’ve also bought into Martin Sorrell’s S4 Capital which is well in profit, particularly with a bonus issue.

GRS - "Just need Losos to post now and it’s a full house...then Minerve will emerge!! Ha ha" Nice of you to remember me :- Have been absent for a while partly due to health matters which I don't want to expand on, Minerve would likely be in his element handing out death wishes and such. Not that I would read them since he is permanently blocked haha. The share price has just gone above my break even cost so since MRO was occupying a slightly larger percentage of overall portfolio than I usually like to see I took the opportunity to top slice. Still holding the remainder, and of course still reading yor posts, and Yertis, B+ and a few others, keep up the good work.

Always attend our local Remembrance Parade and service. Usually in the parade but took a back seat this time and watched from the sidelines. Excellent turnout.

Yertiz, I take it you went to a Remembrance service yesterday. We went to the Cheltenham Parade and Service as we regularly do. I was amazed by the Numbers - literally thousands - who attended on the Promenade. The largest number of people I have every seen there, and lots of young people.

Yertiz, what happened to Exeter. I saw the score at HT and was sure it was a good win for the Chiefs. This looks a very open title race. Leicester for relegation???

Meanwhile, I’d like to make you an offer. I’ll offer you all my MRO shares at a heavily discounted price of 148p per share. As you may well know if you’ve worked out how to use the internet yet, the market price is around 225p so it’s a hell of a deal! I’m giving you the right to buy them so I’m going to call it a ‘rights issue’. What’s more, if you take up my rights issue, I’ll give you 3 of them for every 5 I hold. Pretty good deal I think you’d have to agree? If you haven’t got the finance in place to buy them all I’d let you swallow your tail on a maximum of 3 in every 5 shares you buy at the discounted price but only if you hand me 2 shares on top of each 5 you pay for! Do you accept?

Thank you, Keyno, but of course I'm not the only one on here providing valuable information and guidance for the less able investor. We have 'brexitplus', for example, with his internal GKN technical bulletins and, of course, the chap 'getting' with his guidance on stock market investment techniques. This chap 'getting' can not only provide guidance on problems identified, but can often identify a new problem, and simply from a posters text, when the poster (and other readers in some cases) didn't even know one existed. For example, he is able to identify, using only mathematical methods, where an MRO holder mistakenly thinks he has benefitted from taking up a Rights Issue of new shares at a heavy discount to the market price, as in the Nortek acquisition, for example. In another case, he can advise on the use of the 'Stop-Loss' method, his particular specialist area, applying it at say 10% stop-loss, even where the shares have fallen 50% overnight. His 'Parallax' view is a major contribution to the content of this site.
