riv We're thinking on much the same lines. This remains a sound company and order book is good. But unless they completely change their spots they're going to remain completely unimpressed by PR / IR. They do the business and then report it. Trouble is, that means the price is going to remain suppressed until the next set of results showing good growth.

Rivaldo, definately needs to let the dust settle and I agree the underlying business is sound. Maybe they will learn to present the reports with just a tad more enthusiasm to reflect their economic health. We need to see some growth.

Panic selling kicking in now. MM's are happy to keep marking it down. Best to wait until the dust settles if you want to sell.

A3etc, there are a number of other trades which have gone through at similar levels on PLUS... Short-term these results are a disappointment. But (and call me naive) the narrative in these results (if brief) is more optimistic than ever before - a simple statement of "cautious optimism", no vague threats of "challenges" etc, strong order books, progress in all three divisions...and we know about the secure orders stretching far into the future. When the dust has settled this should be a buying opportunity imo. For now it just depends on when the dust actually settles! EDIT - there's also £110k of intangible amortisation. Add that back and you probably get around 8.9p EPS for H1 - doubled up that's almost 18p EPS for the year.

If Robbie Burns decides to sell (part), his followers may sell as well. So share price may still fall.

Now my trade comes in showed as a buy on an .m.o.n.e.y.a.m. I expect Rivaldo's to be the 3600@190 07::58:04. So they delayed showing them until they look like buys. hmmm!

Yes must admit growth is disappointing and i sold mine abut half an hour ago.Don't like the 'cautious optimism' in the statement either.

These results are disappointing. For several years the profits and shares grew at 100% per year. Three consecutive 6 month periods where earnings are flat around 7.5p. End of the growth story. Time to get out.

You certainly need patience with this one. Like the company though I decided to be cautious and sold my holding of 4k@178 but I am interested to see the sale has not been recorded at 8:06:46. I have been caught too often. I hope to buy back when the time seems right.

A little disappointing. I was fortunate enough to top-slice some on the open at the high. But the markdown now is savage - at 174p the P/E is only 10.7 assuming MSI only double up H1 earnings, and MSI still have plenty of cash. The cash pile is being spent on capital investment - which knowing MSI management's cautious stance is unlikely to be being spent for no reason. At present I'm happy to hold the balance for what could still be serious growth. If the price slips further we might get more share buy-backs - the last one was at 146.5p.

Well, I as you all know I was hopefull of £2 by Friday, we may have to wait quite a few Fridays time now!! As for the £2.20, well!!!!!! Stormy A bit oversold at present though!! IMO.

Stormy When have they ever been less than cautious! Yes, results were less than we were hoping for and, of course there'll be an overreaction. Can't sell 'em for decent money, though, so might as well hang on. After all, 160p's a current year p/e of only 10 and the order book's strong. Dead money for the short term but these'll come good again. The business is very sound.

See above for full report, dont want to clutter the thread!! Stormy Chairman's Statement I am pleased to report that we have continued to make good progress in the first half of the current year. The Group achieved a marked upgrading in performance across a range of measures during the previous year and I am delighted that we have consolidated that elevated status in the six months to 28 October 2006. A profit before taxation of #1.98m (2005 - #2.00m) was achieved on revenue of #22.88m (2005 - #23.22). Earnings per share were 8.1p (2005 - 8.1p) The three operating divisions - defence, forgings and petrol station superstructures sustained a good and stable level of performance, subject only to programme variations and the timing of their respective market demands. The balance sheet remains robust, with net cash of #3.24m albeit our policy of propitious and unrelenting capital investment in advancing the technological expertise of the businesses proceeds at a high level. The order book is strong and of good quality and we are positioning ourselves to make further progress, supported in the belief that there are some interesting opportunities for the Group in the markets we serve. The Board continues to view the outlook with cautious optimism. Taking these matters into account the Board has declared an interim dividend of 0.60p per share (2005 - 0.58p) Michael Bell 24 November 2006.

Yep. The interims for both 2005 and 2005 were both announced on a Tuesday - I'd say this Tuesday was a good bet for the results. You're probably right about the conflict of interest. And he's quite an active bloke - a director of JJB for a start. Still, considering MSI are so mouse-like on the investor relations front it's comforting to know that they've got input from someone who's obviously clued up on and wired in to the City.

good find Rivaldo, nice theory too :-) Only question would be is it ethical to have a director as a director on the board of the house broker? Conflict of interest? Anyway, results can't be far off. CR
