Draw down of OXIG from year peek is -23%. Low net debt and all earnings and margin numbers are going the right way. Earnings are diversified too. P/E of 22 seems like it could goto 28 when markets go bullish. This UK stock seems cheap vs US quality stocks.
Value investors may say this is too expensive but earnings could catch up with P/E at the current rate.

I would like to see it pay of the small debt it has as these days debt is a drag. OXIG are earning enough income to do this. I don't want to see dividend increase as this could be a great UK growth story for the FTSE100.

Review by Richard Beddard on Interactive Investor, in conclusion:

In recent years I have allowed Oxford Instruments’ indebted past to put me off investigating further, but that was a result of an acquisition-led policy to which I doubt the company will return while it is employing the Horizon strategy.

Another reason why I dithered is rule number one in investing, which is to understand the investment. Since Oxford Instruments operates near the frontiers of science, it has taken me a while to muster the confidence to take it on.

While I doubt I will ever understand quantum mechanics, I have enjoyed learning a bit about it, enough to be confident the company understands the commercial opportunity. I have added Oxford Instruments to the Decision Engine.

A score of 6 out of 9 suggests it is probably a good long-term investment. It is ranked 26 out of the 41 shares I have scored in the last year or so. In reaching that verdict I have been cautious in awarding a score of 1 out of 2 for risks, which reflects my unfamiliarity with the business.

Oxford Instruments is an emerging manufacturing and developer offering atomic force microscopy products, tools for use in research and development across semiconductors, renewable energy, mining, forensics, and metallurgy. Subsequently, the firm is involved in processing equipment and provision of solutions to establish infrared sensors and temperature systems. Furthermore, the group is currently selling MRI and CCT serving products, and software applications to support leading industrial corporations and scientific research communities. This increasingly diversified business model, enabled the firm to derive more sources of income, boosting operating profit to £11.2m in 2021 from £7.8m in 2020. As a result, the board declared a dividend of 4.4p per share, above 4.1p in 2020. Consequently, it implies that investors were able to enhance their return on investment, which is expected to be further optimised, since Oxford Instruments plans a medium-term margin expansion, supported by a strong opportunity pipeline and healthy order book. From a valuation perspective, the security has ample growing opportunities, as illustrated by the P/B ratio of 5.02, higher than electronics industry P/B ratio of 4.24, hence the group is outperforming its peers.

EI Yes, better day. Well done:-)

Yes 20/20 hindsight, I should have held Skg. Never saw a bid coming and, having discussed them with a fellow investor, I did see negatives. I never intended to be a long term holder.

From Motley Fool today
Oxford Instruments
Oxford Instruments designs high-tech tools and systems for research and industry. Until recently, the company was a darling of investors — from the start of 2009 to the start of 2014 its shares soared from 150p to nearly 1,800p. However, there has been huge fall since, showing what can happen when a highly-rated growth company doesn’t live up to earnings-growth expectations.

A statement ahead of the company’s AGM today saw the shares take another downward lurch — a 15% dive to 680p, as I write — with the Board announcing: “we have reduced our expectations for the full year”. The company cited “the sudden tightening of trade sanctions for sales to Russia, a slower-than-expected recovery in Japanese markets, and weaker trading in our Industrial Analysis business” as the primary factors.

The group has been in the process of restructuring and lowering its cost base, and, while the Board believes the company is “well positioned to deliver its growth strategy over the medium term”, today’s news shows a continuing challenging environment. The once high P/E is now down into the low teens, but, with sentiment weak, the shares could fall further yet, and I would be looking for clear evidence of the company getting back on track before buying in.

Of course, backing winners and avoiding losers are key to successful investing. But there are a number of other simple and straightforward steps that can help you on the road to stock-market riches and financial security.

Sounds like oliversanvil is posting on the wrong board. He talks about all the investors on AIM which has nothing to with OXIG

Indeed i have joined the shareholders' action group. Company engineering administration by a suspect pattern that must be investigated by the law. Of course BLATANTLY the Bods are manoeuvring or are being manoeuvred by (? ) ( maybe who has the train set? ) thinking they are ahead of the law! The wishy washy legal loopholes have to be filled,and i believe a precedent will be set this time once and for ALL investors on the Aim

Posted at 29/1/2015 15:45 by koetser - Investec has downgraded its recommendation on tech group Oxford Instruments [LON:OXIG] to 'hold' from 'buy' in a note to investors, today. The broker said: "The group still requires a resumption of growth in demand to lift revenues and margins, but patience and nerve will be needed as net debt approaches covenant limits before falling again from September 2015." Investec also made a hefty cut to its target price, which now stands at 815 pence a share (previously 1,280 pence), implying a somewhat modest forecast total return of 5.5 per cent. The stock has fallen by almost 30 per cent since releasing its latest trading statement, on 22 January - See more at: hxxp://
