Possibly oversold here given the 'in line' result??

IMS out "All three Group divisions, 'Defence' 'Forgings' and 'Petrol Station Superstructures' have faced specific challenges in their respective markets. Nevertheless, the net result will be in line with our expectations albeit inevitably lower than last year's record figure. The balance sheet remains very strong with net cash and short term deposits."

Good to see MSI heading up back up, some chunky trades going through this week as well. IMS should be out in the next week.

Nice find, Mr T. I love the fact that they continue to invest in state-of-the-art facilities and still remain cash rich!

It's a couple of months old, but here's a press release from MSI forks about their relatively new manufacturing facility in Rock Hill, South Carolina: http://www.forkliftaction.com/news/newsdisplay.aspx?nwid=12383 MSI Forks have been manufacturing forks in the UK since 1964, and opened a distribution business in Rock Hill, SC in 1996. This was followed in 2003, by opening a manufacturing facility in Sao-Paulo, Brazil. MSI's commitment to the North American marketplace was confirmed when the Rock Hill, SC facility was converted into a state of the art manufacturing facility in 2011. MSI saw a need for this as Sao-Paulo it fitted in with the company commitment of being able to supply fork-arms of any configuration on the shortest possible lead time. As the recession struck MSI identified that their customers were no longer willing to hold large stocks of fork-arms and had a preference for a rapid delivery. MSI perceived that the North American market wished for greater choice than that which was offered by one dominant fork-arm manufacturer. The manufacturing facility in Rock Hill, SC has now been fully Rock Hill commissioned and has demonstrated a reliable and impressive capability. The American forklift truck market now has an option in buying forks that have been manufactured through an entirely North American supply chain. MSI-Forks has a continuing investment program to manufacture as close as possible to the customers it serves.

Moving up now. All but one of the last 5 director share purchases were at prices higher than the current price, including 7k at 294.5p - and the exception was at 242.5p :o))

It would be interesting to get an idea of the percentage holdings of MSI shares in circulation (not held by directors and families) that are represented by the contributors to this board.

Interesting to see the segmental breakdown in the notes, particularly the relatively high operating profit margin in the petrol station forecourt division (over 15%) which is not what I would have expected, but which certainly justifies the decision to buy out the 50% stake in Global-MSI at a juicy valuation in 2011. In fact you can now see that the £4.5m they paid was only around 10 times profit. Conversely the margins in forgings were lower than I expected given the capital investment over the years in state of the art machinery.

Been on my watchlist for a while and the strength of this morning's outlook statement encouraged me to take a small position. Thanks to alter ego for flagging the interims so soon after publication. They do indeed look very cheap (EV/EBITDA = 3) and very well run (Good consistent ROCE, increasing operating margin, high Piotroski score) so a positive outlook turning into positive results should see a significant re-rating.

xdavid, Rivaldo, Agree I can't remember such detail previously which is encouraging. Regarding the price it has been available to buy at less than 215 recently and even this morning it took 90 minutes to garner a positive reaction from the results. As always you have to be on your toes though due to the random timing of the release of the results :-) The directors have bought at higher prices so every chance of top-ups.

Rivaldo, I agree with the comment re the language in the RNS. Michael Bell has always been a straightforward, no-fluff talker who under-promises and over-delivers. My eyebrows positively twitched on some of his comments (and I'm normally approaching comatose when reading MSI RNS's). I was actually hoping the price would drift down to allow me to top up but looks like someone else also likes it. Wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't Mr. Bell himself.

Indeed....an excellent RNS. On a superficial look the H1 figures don't look good by comparison with last year, but those comments are possibly the most bullish and detailed I've ever seen from MSI. Cue more director buying?

Have been a bit concerned about MSI given the weaker outlook in the FY results, a strong H2 weighting comment is often a pre-cursor to a profit warning a few months down the line, plus the falling share price. However the interims today have removed that worry for me, especially at the current share price. The numbers were lower than last year as expected but the second half will be strong: "the Board has a good measure of confidence as to the full year outlook for the Group, subject to there being no further deterioration in the global economy that could adversely affect our two industrial engineering divisions." Also these two comments caught my eye, as they point to potential for good growth in the medium term: "Most crucially, the Group order intake in the period was some 80% higher at the end of October, compared to that received in the corresponding period last year and currently the value of orders on hand is some 25% higher than at last year end." "'Defence' is now looking forward with confidence to a much stronger second half year. The majority of orders are already in hand to achieve the expected full year revenue and there are a number of very interesting new business prospects emerging from around the world."
