David Schwartz article on Black Friday, going on to discuss MSI, is here: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/a455c956-1692-11e1-bc1d-00144feabdc0.html#axzz1eour30Ib It's a relief this is quite well-hidden because otherwise the effect on such a monstrously illiquid share would be potentially alarming :-)

Looks like David Schwartz gives MSI a mention today in the FT, he's been topping up. For as bad as the market is there's a number doing well and near the highs in the past week or two like MSI, PKG, SAG, to name a few. If you can find these and avoid the knocks there's still good gains to be made but it sure is difficult :-) CR

If they can make headway in this market, rivaldo, my hat goes off to them, they're a very nice hold I don't mind if it takes a while. OT - thanks for the gng reminder, I've held them before and must admit profitably but got scared off by some reading I did on perceptions of Chinese co's generally and value traps.

I have a feeling that Monday (and this week) will be a very good one for MSI :o))

Good to see an industrial company located in the north doing so well.

Cheers A34. Interesting that the spread is down to a very manageable 10p now - perhaps liquidity is improving a touch here. The Naked Trader was very enthusiastic last night FYI - he (rightly imo) believes MSI should be at 400p-450p, and with 35p-40p EPS now likely that's hardly a demanding valuation: http://www.nakedtrader.co.uk/ "Wow! Is all I can say about the fabulous statement from MS International (MSI) - a share I guess that is simply under the radar - what great management here! All its divisions have had a fantastic half year, both forecourts and defence have been doing well. I thought that might be the case given MS were advertising recently for staff. Looks like they might do 8-9m in the full year throw in the cash they have and despite a rise on the report it still looks undervalued and looks good value up to 400-450. The dividend has been increased by 50% too showing confidence. Big well done to the management at that company. Anyhow should be 100p higher than it is."

Riv and CR thanks for your efforts on this board. You don't hear from me much but first bought into this on 27/11/06 thanks to CRs rec. Great company but have not added much since then as although v pleased with results think if you hold a lot the liquidity is not so great so seems wise not to build too large a stake. Anyway wish I had got more!

OT : darlocst, exactly the opposite case re GNG. Given very high annual recurring income, blue chip clients who ALWAYS pay (GNG has had almost no bad debts and has never lost a client), the locked-in nature of GNG's software, the high and growing order books and the known business to come from Haier and CCB, GNG is about the most certain growth opportunity I've come across. Especially on a P/E of 3 and with a cash pile equating to much of the m/cap :o))

Impressed and reassured by results. I also expect H2 to be better. If I didn't have a position here already I would be buying. Back to sleep until Feb now when the IMS will be out. OT: I wouldn't be touching GNG though. There are plenty of great value UK based companies with international exposure in the current market that don't have the wacking great uncertainties that GNG has or the china risk factor.

Talk about secretive ! I look for results every day after 7am and have just looked back in today fortunately. Who else releases them at 9 ? Anyway, looks like the 'smoke signals' were read correctly by you rivaldo. Well done. Glad l hopped on board for the ride.

Cheers paleje - "not so easy" isn't the half of it :o)) The H1 results are actually even better than I expected. If you add back the £188k amortisation charge, the true adjusted EPS for H1 is 17.7p. So MSI are certainly on track for 35p+ EPS this year and possibly that 40p EPS. Then consider that MSI have a £7.7m cash pile against a £58m m/cap. I suspect that the cash pile will strongly improve in H2 with the defence phasing such that it should exceed last year's £9.9m, perhaps by some way. OT : excellent AGM statement by GNG today. They're the only Chinese quoted company I fully trust, having met the management a few times. On a P/E of 3, huge defensive characteristics, blue chip clients....definitely worth a look imho.

Excellent indeed rivaldo, what a slightly secretive gem to tuck away. Spotted early in year via NT and appreciated all the informative posts on here, not so easy to research this outfit.

Fantastic results - 16.6p EPS in H1, up from 10p, and pretty much up to my optimistic hopes: http://www.investegate.co.uk/Article.aspx?id=201111230900046124S Given the defence project phasing I'd still expect 35p+ EPS this year. Every division is thriving, the outlook is great, the divi is up 50% to 1.5p. Couldn't ask for more.

Good post Mr T. Your figures chime perfectly with mine from prior posts where I proposed around 35p and possibly even 40p EPS this year, i.e say 17p-18p in these H1 results. With the US contract perhaps the weighting will be a little more to H2. Not long until we find out :o)) I'm pretty confident the figures will be good.

Any predictions for the next interim results? Here's my first guess, based on previous results. Exceptionals and a changing tax rate slightly distorted last year's EPS, so I've looked at the Turnover and PBT trends. I make the last four halves figures (H1 10, H2 10, H1 11, H2 11) as below: Sales: 18.1m 22.9m 25.4m 28.9m PBT (pre Exceptional): 1.2m 2.1m 2.6m 3.7m If they repeat H2's results of £3.7m pbt and pay the standard 26% rate of tax then MSI would earn about £2.7m after tax. With 18m shares in issue that makes about 15p EPS. If we assume progress continues steadily and they do £4m pbt in H1 this year then MSI would earn about £3m after tax and 16.5p EPS. If they do £4.5m pbt in H1 then that would make £3.3m after tax and 18.5p EPS. If the tax rate is only 20%ish again, then you can add an extra 1.5p or so to those figures. Given MSI's positive signals in their recent announcement, my guess is that we'll see EPS of about 17p in H1 this year. What do you think?

You're right - another 1k buy resulted in a 5p rise. Running out of time for the next 15p though....:o))

well, you only have to buy 1,000 to move the price 5p at the moment. Looks like we could go up 20p today ;-)

340p or maybe more if 35p-40p EPS is on the cards. Robbie Burns has started to take an interest again (he already holds MSI): http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/columns/the-naked-trader/7426/well-they-continue-to-surprise-a-bit-youd-have-thought-with-all-the-economic-woes-wherever-you-look-there-would-only-be-downside-7426.html "Little MS International (LON:MSI) creeps a little higher every day, half year results due next week, I wonder whether they will surprise to the upside? I had another look at them today, they look cheap still and they have a whole heap of cash."

Mike, MSI never let anyone know when the results are coming out - they seem to like it being a surprise :o)) However, it's normally a nice surprise, and since the results have in the last 4 years been out on the 29th, 27th, 26th and 25th November (not in that order) we can be fairly sure about a rough date for them!
