I missed this ; 11 April 2019 Oxford Instruments plc Trading Update 11 April 2019 Oxford Instruments plc, a leading provider of high technology products and services to industrial companies and scientific research communities, is today issuing a trading update. As predicted, trading in the second half of the year was supported by a strong order book and our normal second half seasonal bias. We expect adjusted operating profit for the full year to be around the higher end of expectations(1) , despite a small adverse currency effect. A good cash conversion during the year has resulted in the Group achieving a positive net cash position as at 31 March 2019. Oxford Instruments' results for the year ended 31 March 2019 will be released on 11 June 2019. (1) Oxford Instruments compiled analyst forecast range for adjusted operating profit (year to 31 March 2019): GBP46.0m to GBP49.2m Well I didn't time my £10 sell very well as it breaches £11 today.

Just noticed the recent chinese contract win. What chance the Chinese copy and paste the technology? Ask Siemens about the solitary State of the Art turbine the Chinese bought. Sup with a long spoon.

BlackRock reducing, thought there must be a reason for the sharp sell off.

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.

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
