Hope you got your buyback in last week because looks like upwards momentum restarting.

*if market moves downwards.There, fixed it for you, Oracle.

like the company and will look to buy back in when market moves downwards

Beats me wad. I bought mostly on the charts. My tp is still well north of here
Volsung you have chosen well ; not showing any sign of slowing yet.Hold or quit?
The continuing rise seems disproportionate to the recent news, is there some hidden news?

Positive statement on Mottley Fool along with a couple of broker upgrades may be behind today's further rise.

"Oxford Instruments (OXIG) beat analyst expectations to deliver revenue of £334m – up 12.4 per cent – against a delicate market backdrop for industrial companies.

Oxford Instruments PLC

Today change
0.50% Price (GBP)
The supplier of products for industrial and research-focused customers continued to embed its ‘Horizon’; strategy across the company, which it has rolled out over the past two years. Oxford spent £25.4m on research and development, with a focus on products and technologies that offer “new capabilities”. The strategy has cut into adjusted operating margins, which slid from 15.7 per cent in FY2018 to 14.9 per cent, a trend that management wants to address this year. But the company, whose US-based atomic microscopy business exports “around $10m (£7.9m)-worth to China”, expects to reckon with approximately £1m of tariffs emanating from the US-Chinese trade dispute.

Oxford is committed to reducing its working capital, which it took down by £3.7m, reflecting a boost in inventories of £4m and receivables of £3.5m, respectively, along with payables and customer deposits increasing by £4.1m and £7.1m. Management is keen to reduce the day sales inventory ratio, primarily through reducing its roster of suppliers and consolidating its remaining suppliers.

Analysts at JPMorgan have revised their forecast adjusted EPS up from 63.9p to 67.5p for the March 2020 year-end, rising to 70.1p in FY2021."

can't stop mesel buyin these. Got some more just now
Not much bad in them is there? £18 again does not seem so far away as it has done.
The 1.2 %yield is unimpressive but it is well covered (3x).
The above posting about having potential is one thing in a startup , but this is an established business; should it be priced on the basis of current earnings not future potential? Hard to justify £18 on current numbers .

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.
