I'm totally baffled as to how wrong I got this! All very odd indeed.

Well very odd that this is now £7 again after missing its earnings estimates. Just goes to show how unpredictable the stock market can be. The market seems to have bought the "glossed-up profit warning" (i.e. 30p pre-exceptional bad debt write-off which is not really exceptional at all is in line with 33p and already reduced consensus). Odd then that this is therefore hitting all time highs when EPS is back to below 2012 levels! Still a very good company, but not quite sure it justifies this rating given its relatively flat trading performance.

Well, I sold out before the trading update. Odd timing of the update and maybe brought forward by the recent rise in the share price, which was obviously conflicting with a results miss. Results OK by the sounds of things but only before the bad debt. Also 30p pre the bad debt is 10% below the 33p consensus on Stockopedia, so not really in line at all. A lucky escape for me. Could have got nearly £7 earlier in the morning though. Think the strategy here is to buy on a P/E of about 12-15 and sell at 20. The current P/E is toppy at over 20 as MUR hasn’t really grown profits much at all in recent times...so it shouldn’t be rated as a growth stock. Will keep on my watch list. Maybe one to pick up again in the next downturn. Quality stock, but do get the feeling that every year is a real struggle to hit its numbers...tends to indicate that things are getting tougher not better.

Decided to sell out here for a modest profit. Not a particularly high conviction stock for me. Didn't quite catch the top before the pull-back. Very illiquid and volatile this share.

It's all OK thankfully; revenues 5% up on last year. "the second half of the financial year has been in line with the Board's expectations and represents a significant improvement on the trading result for the half year." Still worth closer to sick squid IMO.

A very quiet BB! A nice rise this morning - I bought in about a month ago. Anyone have any thoughts or news?

Must admit, my heart sank slightly when I saw the 'Trading Statement' RNS title this morning, but very pleased to hear slightly more optimistic noises coming out of the company. Hopefully that sets the recent lows as the bottom for now...these certainly look cheap to me on the current metrics if trading is continuing to chug along. If cashflow has continued to be strong then I could still see benefit in a buy-back programme, but I suspect this company might prefer to marshal it's resources for dividends and future acquisitions. Time will tell...

Hi all, Agreed, 'disappointing' rather than catastrophic but obviously it does nothing to answer the question at to where future growth might come from. According to my data, the largest previous share-price fall was circa 12% in June 2008 so today's market response is unlikely to go unnoticed by the board, not least due to the large family shareholding(s). Given that cash apparently continues to roll in, then I would wonder if a limited buy-back programme might now merit consideration, which along with the mooted dividend increase ought to help underpin the stock price whilst the growth issue is being addressed. Considering a top-up at these levels, but will wait for the results announcement before committing any further capital I suspect. Regards,

Not sure about that tsmith. Seems like they've ramped up sales & mktng costs but that hasn't delivered the growth they'd budgeted for. They say "lower than anticipated revenue growth". So doesn't sound like sales have fallen off a cliff. Time will tell.

Yes. First warning in donkey's years (ever?) for MUR. Shame. I haven't suffered a warning in my portfolio for a few years. Happens to us all, alas!

A disappointing update today. A mild profit warning so not the end of the world by any means. Dividend still going up. Braemar yesterday, Murgitroyd today. Not a good week so far!

eps growth has indeed been illusory despite consistent top line progress, jg, but the balance sheet, as you say, has strengthened and is now IMO strong enough (£3m net cash and rising, c. £13.5 net current assets) for further acquisitions, cash returns etc. Currency headwinds of recent years are now tailwinds, a reduction in US corp tax rates will boost eps as well (if The Trump's promise is delivered). MUR is, IMO, a very reliable cash machine (may not always be so!), and given the balance sheet (£13.5m nca, £2m property etc) I can make a case that it's very cheap here! You only pay c£30m over and above current NTAV for a company that chucks off c. £4m cash p.a. 3.4% yield here, twice covered is pretty good. Had a few for the EEZY3 portfolio a week or two ago FWIW http://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=30375760&from=1404
