Dibbs - I agree. It will be very interesting. Just in case you didn't know, Sharewatch who bought £9.5k worth back in April) mentioned that "often astute" Old Mutual now holds 17.4%, the MGP's high PE is "more than justified" due to the 20% compound growth expected over the next 3 years. Finally, they called MGP a "strong hold". BTW You wouldn't happen to know when their next results are due? Thanks.

A nice run towards the end of this last week. It will be interesting to see if we continue to trade sideways or finally see further strength here? Low volumes this last week or so but from recent announcements institutions are buying and selling. Seems we need something of an overhang to clear, ideally coupled with news of strong trading, then more folk will see value here. Dibbs

Good post Velod. I think you have pretty much hit the nail on the head! I bought MGP thinking it would be a nice long term hold but with the hope that the share price would have appreciated a little more than it has by now! I bought around May when the chart looked pretty good and I thought there was some momentum evident but that soon fizzled out after my purchases! With hindsight I was a little hasty in taking a position as the PE is pretty rich. I have decided that MGP has loads of positives and with the advancement of time, coupled with IMHO a greater risk of an upside earnings surprise than downside that I would stay put. Hopefully future events here will make me a happier shareholder and persuade you that MGP is on the move! Cheers Dibbs

This post in response to The BigShortFella’s request to me on another forum and is in reply to BSFella. Have no position in this share, nor intention to take one, but now it’s been brought to my attention might put it on a watchlist somewhere, out of sheer Nosey-Parker-interest on my part. Hi BSFella, Had the impression you were a micro-cap guy so surprised this is a quarter billion-pound MCap company. As a trend follower, no I would not buy this, at this juncture, based solely on the share price action alone. Momentum is iffy; albeit with a recent bull trend initiated, but it’s yet to be established if THIS TIME it will hold and build. Can’t understand why as the company as distinct from the share price appears to be a right little belter. Have access to the Piotroski F-Score and (if anyone hasn’t heard of that just Google) was gobsmacked at how MGP, the business, scored. It only goes and achieves top marks! Not only top marks but flying colours too, kind of top Marks! The highest a company can achieve is 9 - and MGP is rated a right royal gold standard 9. You can’t get higher. And that tells me this is one well-run, mean machine business. That being the case, what the hell’s happened to the share price momentum? I’m not built for fundamentals, but things like Return On Capital and ROE are excellent – no wonder it scored so highly on the F-Score. The business per se, independent of the share price rating, is a stonking belter! So why am I not interested? The share price soared until mid-summer. What happened at the height of summer? Because since then the share price has been unimpressive. Why has the market withdrawn its admiration by turning its back on the SP? And why that big retrace today, Friday? Perhaps I should read the posts below; somebody must have an idea. Why has the market withdrawn its initial embrace? Is it the PE ratio? Does the market think the current PE ratio is unworthy and is holding back? It is above the market average but not that much, (Edit, Upon reflection, well - yes that much. It is a 'fair bit' above the average). Unless I trawled through analysts reports something about this share price level, irks the market. Trendlines: It is currently on a little bull rally, but it’s been on and off all summer like that and looks disappointing to me. I, personally don’t trust the share price so wouldn’t take a long position. nor a short position because the share price has no real momentum for either strategy to be reliable. Until a clear trend breaks AND holds it’s a sit it out on the side-lines job for me with this one. Great company. Rubbish share price momentum.

@thebigshortfella, I totally agree with you. Scooper72 time his trade well. November-December might be a buy period for MGP.

scooper72 - It looks like the timing of your trade was very good. MGP is nicely up. Hopefully we will see further forward momentum over coming weeks.

Some big trades gone through and the share price has edged upwards. Perhaps an overhang of stock cleared....Dibbs

Cowlid - I completely agree with you. Glasshalfull - Ah! OK - that makes complete sense. Thanks for explaining that. I re-read the the results tonight and I was wondering if the concern related to this statement: "the majority of the growth has come from increased collaboration with existing clients as NHS Trusts consider Medica a key part of their capacity structure". It's a not so crafty way of making a positive out of a negative. Any company would prefer growth to come from new clients than existing ones. However, they very clearly signposted that the second half of the year is likely to be stronger: - "on track to meet market expectations as we enter the traditionally stronger second half to the year" - "Recruitment is expected to accelerate in the second half of the year" and "The Board expect the total to be more than 300 by the end of the year" - "A number of new service lines are in development stages" - "EBITDA cash conversion ratio...This number is historically lower in the first half of the year than the second half due to working capital movement" - "as a result of the PACS renewal and will be much lower in the second half of the year" Please excuse my ignorance but is it logical to assume that MGP is likely to spike prior to or on the 29th September 2017 in relation to be on the register for the 0.55 pence dividend payment?

The share price was down today because MGP failed to deliver sales in line with Investec's forecasts. Investec believe however that full year forecasts can be achieved. "H1 sales were weaker than we expected due to capacity constraints and the timing of contract renewals. Revenues rose 17%, with 6.5% growth in body parts reported. However x-ray sales fell 8% as resources were directed towards the higher value services. The company recruited a net 19 radiologists in the period, with a further 24 added post period-end, consequently we are confident FY estimates can be achieved." --- Hope this assists. I don't hold. Kind regards GHF
