He obviously couldn't wait until the new ISA season :o)) Previous director buying here in the past has always led to further good news and share price advances - as can be seen from the chart in the header. Given the last RNS there's no reason why this should be any different, especially when the director buying is reported tomorrow etc.

Indeed: http://www.investegate.co.uk/Article.aspx?id=201203061454067980Y Except it's over £20,000 worth - that's nearly two ISA allowances .... and he already had over four millions shares!

A little bit of coverage...:o)) http://www.insidermedia.com/insider/yorkshire/66404-msi-confident-full-year/ "MSI confident for full-year Last updated: 22nd Feb 2012 at 07:59am | | MS International (MSI) has reiterated its confidence about full-year performance after building on a "compelling" start. In November, MSI said it was confident about the full year outlook. In a statement, executive chairman Michael Bell said: "Pleasingly, that confidence prevails with the anticipated outcome becoming progressively more assured." Bell added that all three divisions of the Doncaster-based engineering business, defence, forgings and petrol station superstructures, were performing "encouragingly" and in line with expectations. For the six months to 29 October, MSI reported pre-tax profit of £4.1m on sales of £27.9m – up from £25.3m in 2010."

Wish I'd never forking found it now.... :o)) Nice 3k buy at 285 has sent the price up 5p. Imagine what would happen with a tip or any decent buying interest before the final results. I'm still going for 35p-40p EPS, with a cash pile which could be anywhere between £10m and £13m and maybe even more.

Nice find rivaldo. Out of curiosity l googled forklift arms and this came out top :-) http://msi-forks.com/msi.htm Also from annual report - 'Forgings', we perceive, may be moving into a period of more sustainable recovery and currently the value of orders on hand is twice that of a year ago. Productivity improvements achieved within the plants and an increased flow of orders, week by week, are indicating a firmer basis for a prospective upturn in results this year. Now we know what they were talking about.

It'll be boom time for MSI Forks at present according to the Times today: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/business/industries/industrials/article3332547.ece "Forklift battalions roll into action as online shopping spreads across Britain The rise of the dark store has transformed retailing over the past decade Robert Lea Industrial Editor Last updated February 27 2012 12:01AM It is the shining beacon of an otherwise moribund retail landscape: e-commerce. With the exponential rise of internet shopping has come a boom in the sales of forklift trucks to manage the warehouses that work 24 hours a day to fulfil online orders. Last year forklift truck sales in the UK rose 20 per cent. While sales of forklifts to Britain's resurgent car manufacturing industry grew by 26 per cent, sales of pallet trucks typically used by retailers and warehouses leapt 50 per cent. According to James Clark, secretary-general of the British Industrial Truck Association which collated the figures, the market is likely to continue strongly to outpace GDP this year with the growth of superwarehouses and the "dark stores" that stand behind 21st-century retailers. "Warehouse and distribution centre capacity will expand to support supermarket store openings and the transition of other retailers to greater reliance on e-commerce," said Mr Clark. The rise of the dark store, in which a customer never sets foot but from which staff fill online orders, has become the retail story of the past decade with the rise of the likes of Amazon and the internet-only supermarket, Ocado. Tesco has opened its fourth dark store - its most automated to date - in North London. Online sales now account for £1 in every £8 spent in Britain and continue to rise at more than 13 per cent a year, compared with the flat sales seen on the high street. "While retail is suffering in general, e-commerce is more than compensating and that is why there is optimism," said Tim Waples, UK director of Doosan, the Korean forklift truck manufacturer. "Supermarkets are needing more forklifts." There are about 250,000 forklift trucks in Britain and sales are running at 26,000 a year. In warehouses they can range from smaller electric pallet trucks costing about £5,000 to high-lift units at more than £80,000. Forklift trucks in the largest distribution centres can be numbered in their hundreds. etc"

I bet Michael Bell's great company on a night out. You'd never get him to stop talking would you ;-) ps I get the impression he'd love to take the company private so he wouldn't have to make any announcements at all !

Yes, with MSI it's possible that the shorter the RNS the better it is :o)) There's no need to say any more than that each of the 3 divisions is doing very well - there's no mention of anything being "subdued" as in prior RNS's. The Balance Sheet is obviously also strong, and I suppose at the year end we'll see how much of a cash pile there is. No wonder the director bought more shares in December.

It's almost like they think they're paying for the RNS by the word....... It's obviously upbeat - but somewhat short on detail.

Just noticed they sneaked out an RNS while I was at lunch. They are few and far between with MSI so you have to make the most of them. Happy with that, will hopefully see my holding return to a paper profit again soon.
