wad collector: Well into precovid levels now , seems a bit surprisingly strong. Something signficant in the pipeline? Not worth buying for the yield at this price.
essentialinvestor: Yup, does it all the time. Just Google search the OXIG price, set the timeframe to 5 years and it tells the same story. There could be future fundamental news, which merits a large share price move. However, it's also given to these moves for no particular reason. Luck with your holding.
essentialinvestor: Longer term you should do well. 2019 was relatively serene by OXIG volatility standards, the share price has moved £3 plus (in either direction) a number of times over the last 5 years. Wider equity market volatility in 2020 has amped that up. £7.41 was my lowest buy this year on 16 March. There were a boatload of bargains available then!.
essentialinvestor: - 7% today. 20% moves for OXIG within a few days are not unusual. The March low is circa £7.24.
essentialinvestor: Share price had got a little ahead of itself with a recent move over £15. Had a small amount today. The OXIG share price can be very volatile, sizeable % moves have been a frequent occurrence over the last few years.
essentialinvestor: Trading has held up very well so far. During the financial crisis OXIG took a pounding.
essentialinvestor: We dont know what happens over the next 10 months, however they have given a current trading update - all be it just two months of the current financial year. March's low price may not be seen again imv, unless something dramatic occurs. May be available a bit lower if we experience some renewed equity market volatility.
essentialinvestor: That's a price target, it's meaningless to me with respect.
wad collector: IC have been following your lead; "Oxford Instruments (OXIG) beat analyst expectations to deliver revenue of £334m – up 12.4 per cent – against a delicate market backdrop for industrial companies. OXIG:LSE Oxford Instruments PLC 1mth Today change 0.50% Price (GBP) 1,216.00 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."
wad collector: 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
