Grabbing a quick turn here was appalling timing on my part. Congrats to those holding.

That's a 4 month high now , Liberum upgraded to buy last week, target £11 ,which is down on the £11.50 target from November despite being a hold then! Reminder to ignore broker notes.

Interesting looking share price recovery , up 3% towards the bell though not much volume. No news I can see. Still a long way back to the £18 high of 4 yrs ago. Hands in pockets time I think . Although the yield is a pitiful 1.4% , it is well covered and I am still hoping this company can really use its market position to find a money making niche rather than vague optimism about the future products.

My rudimentary take on OXIG, either the BOD succeed in reigniting growth, or it may look attractive to someone else, particularly with debt metrics looking fat more robust following the disposal proceeds.

EI, Cheers. Until you mentioned it the other day I hadn't paid attention due to my old perception of the under strain balance sheet. It doesn't look cheap nor expensive. Suppose the upside is a takeover at a c.40% premium.

May be a fair observation. Andor was viewed as a rock solid growth company not too long ago.

Yes and overpaid for it IMO.

Hi Simon, digital look have £40 M on pre tax and 56.66 on EPS, year ending 03/2018. It looks very much a work in progress to me, so still a lot to prove, has to be kept in mind imv. The main positive from this year is debt metics are transformed with the large disposable. They bought Andor in 2014, from memory.

In this AM, small amount. Further portfolio consolidation would not surprise me.

Half year report Financial Highlights: -- Reported orders up 6.0% to GBP148.5 million (2016: GBP140.1 million), an increase of 1.8% at constant currency -- Reported revenue in line with previous year, down 4.5% at constant currency -- Adjusted profit before tax from continuing operations up 24.4% to GBP16.3 million (2016: GBP13.1 million) -- Adjusted operating margin up 180 basis points primarily reflecting currency benefits -- Profit before tax from continuing operations of GBP12.7 million (2016: loss of GBP0.6 million) -- Constant currency order book of GBP141.8 million up 3.3% and 11.8% against September 2016 and March 2017 respectively -- Significantly strengthened balance sheet with proceeds from sale of Industrial Analysis leading to reduction in net debt to GBP45.5m (2016: GBP141.1 million) -- Interim dividend maintained at 3.7 pence You wouldn't buy them for the yield! 1.4% - or are we still pretending that this is a R&D company that will bring in jam tomorrow?

Statement "As previously reported, in the year to March 2017, the Group delivered a profit performance in line with expectations. We made good progress in developing and announcing the new Horizon strategy to reposition our Group for long-term growth. In July we completed the sale of Industrial Analysis. The management team is now implementing the next phase of the Horizon strategy as we commence the structural changes required to move the business towards sustainable growth. "Turning to trading for the first five months of the current year: reported revenue is in line with last year, supported by favourable currency benefits. In the same period, revenue and operating profit at constant currency is behind last year due to lower optical microscopy sales and an increase in the proportion of customised magnet and cryogenic systems with longer production lead times. "Looking ahead, we expect the second half of the financial year to benefit from the timing of new product introductions and the normal seasonal bias, as well as from the favourable currency impact. Overall, expectations for the full year remain unchanged."

Traded some out at 1060. The share price has become a bit of a traders dream if the spread stays narrow. Which it mostly doesn't!

Still can't decide whether this should be valued as a producer or R&D. Market seems to like the results. Might take a quick 6% as the wider market is in an odd place at the moment , could take a tumble.

Time to sell some I reckon ; 1095 tempts me. I suspect the buyback opportunity will arise soon.

Well, they rose sharply on the asset sale at a hefty premium to asset value. I thought it would fall back gently after that and sold a third of my shares. But it started off again at midday today. That suggests US buying to me, maybe hedge fund - or just possibly the long-awaited predator.

Always felt this would be ripe for a foreign takeover. Was the reason I invested initially. Someone obviously likes this.
