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.

Might be a good exit point. My recent trades have gone badly so will hold out longer here. I want £18 again!

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.

You may well be right. OXIG has previously traded from near £6, to over £10 within a few months. It can be highly volatile, however accept it's higher risk and there may be unpleasant news to come. Soon find out.

Meij, the SKG comment was for red, as we both had some SKG last year. My current OXIG is 2100 shares, it's not a bet the farm position.

Hi Red, well it's off to a f!ying start, in reverse! ). SKG eh, I should have just held, it did look cheap, and now that's been noticed.

Hi Red, it's only a very small buy, this is too volatile for me to hold in any quantity.
