An 8-10p spread is also smaller because the 15-20p spread was when it was around 200p as well. The 300-310p spread is no different to a 30-31p spread in % terms which most wouldn't bat an eyelid at.

Nope. You must be new to this stock John. The spread has often been 15p or even 20p! An 8p spread is therefore small, and you can normally deal well inside the published spread anyway. PLus, when MSI moves it REALLY moves, so any spread is usually eaten up fairly quickly.

Moving up slowly on every buy now - nice small 8p spread too.

:o)) I'd hope 340p would just be the start given the fundamentals.

Welcome G78. It's often the "boring" stocks which provide by far the greatest returns. Above 300p and hopefully new highs soon.

I'm in this morning. I've watched this since the NT bought in at around 200p and have been trying to tie in a re-trace with having funds but with no joy. Every time it looked like it was going to pull back a bit, up it went. A slow broker platform meant I missed 298p so finally bought for 303p. Not sure why I didn't buy sooner as I had the opportunity to (i.e. free capital) at 230p and 275p - I guess I thought i'd be better going for something less 'boring' although have since learnt it is the boring ones than look after you.

As a cash rich, inceasingly profitable company there's a lot of room for a very decent rise in the final dividend payment. Otherwise what are they going to do with it all ?

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.

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.
