Thanks for the link David. I used to follow your comments on BBC with great interest in the days when I was heavily invested in them. The profits I made back then have been spent on a piece of land in Ireland where I now live in a house Ben Bailey virtually paid for! It's great to know you appreciate what MSI are doing as I've owned shares in them for a couple of years and hope we can look forward to your company, and intelligent comment, once again.

This may be of interest and there is a similarity in your eps expectation and conclusions http://boards.fool.co.uk/Message.asp?mid=11109318

I saw the share price lift today and presumed that it was more director buying - but forgot results are soon so in closed period. Had a look at previous comments after interims... ======================== westcountryboy - 29 Nov'07 - 08:14 - 1116 of 1147 Look at the segmental info at the bottom - really large profit increases for forecourts and forgings. Meanwhile defence earnings have been reduced by investment to meet the substantial sales increases flagged up as due in H2 and next year. Go figure, as they say :-) Cambium - 29 Nov'07 - 09:14 - 1117 of 1147 Nice move this am xdavid - 29 Nov'07 - 13:31 - 1118 of 1147 Interesting to see the increase in information contained in the interims. Far more than previous years and more than is usually contained in the finals! Looks like they have taken onboard previous comments to them about lack of transparency regarding the different divisions, with this putting off some investors. Coupled with the audit statement from Ernst & Young (first time I have seen their hat in the mix), I'm wondering if all this adds up to an upcoming push for more investor exposure? Unusually bullish statements from Michael Bell (backed up by pre-close director buying and the comment regarding retention of exercised options)with phrases like "good visibility" and "forthcoming surge". Even his typical, cautious, ending comment regarding short-term outlook contained the word "buoyant" - careful now, Michael, you'll be getting accused of exuberance! From the comments, the capital spending signalled in 2006 looks like it is winding down. Despite the obvious large expenditure they still managed to increase cash in hand year on year so the next few years "record order book" earnings should benefit from the resultant leverage. That sizeable capital expenditure for defence division in combination with the H2 "surge" comment does look extremely tantalising, WCB! 2008 estimates (mine) with historic 2007 in brackets, @225p ... E (fully diluted) ... 21.2 (17.5) - see note 1 PE ... 10.6 (12.9) PEG ... 0.51 (0.57) divi yld ... 1.8% (1.6%) cash per share ... 60p (46p) - presumes net cash inflow continues for H2 Note 1. Earnings - MSI usually have about 25% uplift in H2. The comments suggest this is going to be sizeably increased this year but I have only chalked in a 35% (cautious) increase. All in all, I like it. Finals should be really interesting. A big sign would be further buybacks or director buying in coming months. ======================== I'm going to stand by my predictions :-) but with share price at 190p, ratios work out at... 2008 estimates (mine) with 2007 in brackets, @190p ... PE ... 8.95 (10.9) PEG ... 0.42 (0.52) divi yld ... 2.1% (1.9%)

Results should be out this coming week. Anyone any ideas about whether the price of petrol will affect the demand for new station forecourts?

Must be a different SFR....In the recent results I saw the headlines were • Following acquisition and capital expenditure, year end net borrowings of £48.1m (2006: net funds £38.2m) That means 'debt' I preferred the old SFR which was probably the one you thought you were invested in. MSI are very much net cash and all those share buybacks is an indication of where the money is going. It is also very eps enhancing in future years

SFR are total quality - read the accounts, news releases and look at the director buy activity. - Market leader - No debt - Strong order book - Huge drop in share price for no good reason Nuff said...
