Lack of yeild support is part of the reason for some sharp SP movements imv. This management team are also understated in approach. I thought the H1 numbers were solid, however the statement itself looked a tad subdued. They are not ra ra cheerleaders telling you what an amazing job they are doing etc, prefer that, some may not.

Looks like IC has spread the seeds of doom...currently down £1.50 on the month. Might be time to add a few ..

If you value it as a manufacturer , the 3.8p dividend is pretty trivial , though 27p EPS bit more impressive. Debt down is good.Haven't seen IC yet , but the half yearly results seem reasonable , though comparison with last yr has to be seen in the light of poor performance that yr. Yesterday; Financial Highlights: -- Orders up 10.3% to GBP162.9m (2017: GBP147.7m), an increase of 12.0% at constant currency -- Order book of GBP177.9m (31 March 2018: GBP153.0m, restated for IFRS 15) up 16.3% (12.5% at constant currency) -- The Group has adopted IFRS 15 'Revenue from Contracts with Customers' and IFRS 16 'Leases'. The impact is to increase revenue by GBP5.1m -- Reported revenue increased by 11.3% to GBP147.0m (12.6% at constant currency) -- Adjusted operating profit from continuing operations up 11.7% to GBP21.0m (16.0% at constant currency) with margin rising to 14.3% -- Adjusted profit before tax from continuing operations up 21.5% to GBP19.8m -- Reported profit before tax down 8.7% to GBP11.6m due to mark-to-market movement on currency derivatives -- Strong cash conversion of 91.0% contributes to reduction in net debt to GBP12.5m -- Interim dividend increased by 2.7% to 3.8p Operational Highlights: -- Continued progress with the implementation of our Horizon strategy - Good underlying order and revenue growth - Continued focus on innovation and R&D

IC appears to be saying the rating is too high.

Wow this board is humming! Half yearly results out in 2 weeks ; 13 November. I see the Broker consensus is still around EPS 58p for the year FWIW.

Up sharply today , I see an IC article yesterday which suggests HOLD Around this time last year, Oxford Instruments (OXIG) announced its 'Horizon' growth strategy. It's still early days in terms of implementation, but a 5 per cent increase in orders to £313m suggests progress has been made, while continued spend on R&D – £24.8m, or 8.4 per cent of sales – demonstrates that the group is determined to expand and optimise the technologies within its proprietary offering (profit and margin growth in the service and healthcare division was driven by services relating to in-house products). Oxford Instruments reversed last year's reported losses, but two factors flattered this result. First was the impact of foreign exchange. Strip out translation effects and adjusted pre-tax profit improved by 0.6 per cent. Full-year returns were also helped along by £80m garnered from the sale of the industrial analysis business, which along with an 18.5 per cent increase in operating cash flows (before working capital movements), enabled the group to cut its net debt from £109m in FY2017 to £19.7m at the period end. An intensified focus on the nanotechnology business – part of the wider materials and characterisation division – contributed to an 11.7 per cent rise in sales to £118m, which helped to compensate for a 10.5 per cent revenue decline in the research and discovery business, resulting from longer lead times on some orders. Prior to this announcement, analysts at JPMorgan expected pre-tax profits of £42m during the year to March 2019, giving EPS of 56.4p, up from £41m and 55p in FY2018.

The shares are trading in line with historic earnings metrics relative to peers, so there's still no obvious value argument on offer. Hold. Last IC View: Hold, 961p, 15 Nov 2017

Yes; full year results much more positive in both results and outlook. Suspect this will create a few broker notes and a significant further rise.

Don't expect they will ; they will await a down day. OXIG has always struck me as an engineering company that would like to be valued as an R&D company. It seems overvalued as the former but undervalued as the latter. Here's hoping....

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.
