Bargain time imho, especially given the high forward visibility, with the MMs screwing sellers on tiny volumes. Beaufort are positive this morning (didn't get proof-read though!): "Our View: Petards reported a strong performance for H1 FY2017, continuing its recent progress by winning several contracts for its eyeTrain systems. In particular, the £4.3m contract secured from Stadler was an important step forward for the Group as it further strengthens its product position as 'system-of-choice' across the industry. Stadler is a well-known, global system provider of train manufacturing and maintenance services, operating in 18 countries with 7,000 employees. It manufactures a wide range of products, including high speed trains, intercity, regional and commuter trains, trams, tram-trains and underground trains. Successful delivery of the current project brings potential for long-term relationship to roll-out Petards' various products to other vehicles manufactured by Stadler. An addition of Stadler lead to 6 of the world's top 10 rolling stock manufactures now in Petards' customer list, with 4 of which have current projects with the Group (Stadler, Siemens, Great Western Railway and Hitachi Rail Europe Limited). Post period, the Group also won a £1.0m contract from the Ministry of Defence and £0.5m from Leonardo MW (previously Agusta-Westland). The Group's order book at the period end increased by +20% to c.£24m, of which £8m is scheduled for delivery in the H2 FY2017 and £11m for FY2018, providing excellent visibility. Petards ended the year with good cash position of £1.5m with no debt, after financing product development and projects from own resources. As such, the Board anticipates positive cash flows to return in Q3 and Q4 FY2018 as existing contracts progress to advanced phases. The Share have increased by approximately +60% year-to-date, currently valued at FY2017E and FY2018E P/E multiples of 13.0x and 11.9x, having seen its shares fall back in May after its Chairman reduced its holdings (now 3.2% holder). In view of the continue positive progress along with a strong order book, Beaufort retains its Speculative Buy recommendation on the Shares.

A balanced view bookbroker. I'm cautious but not quite as cautious as yourself. Is gold the way forward, I'm big into AAZ. Newsflow just gets better and better there.

Truffle - ur remark should apply to the whole market, we are being propped up by the US and Far Eastern markets, no company incl. mega caps is now immune to seeing a fall in earnings at these levels, the consumer in the UK is screwed, apart from the the great and good who actually do little to support the pubs, clubs and high street names. They buy out of necessity, it is the ones on the breadline who are happy to run up large debts, but now they are done! We see that in the recent reports from MAB, GNK, etc.; Spoon's is doing ok for now, I hasten to add, but the restaurant sector is struggling proper. Going back to the main point, I would be loathe to risk capital now, dividends are under threat and balance sheets are stretched, although there is likely to be no threat of rate rises, the economy just will not take it, but profits warnings seem to abound right now, and I cannot see the pressure easing. Petard's relies on longer term contracts, and from transport essentially, but these are reliable even if they are having to currently build up inventory to fulfil the contracts, they'll see a material benefit as the deliveries are made, personally I think they are undervalued, EI. has a point about margins, but that is temporary, the order book is about as full as they can manage being a small manufacturing concern, should be higher, not lower!

WHI say Buy today, with a 42p price target. They see 2.12p EPS this year rising to 2.31p EPS next year. That's a forward fully diluted P/E of only 11.7 now, and an adjusted EV/EBITDA of less than 6. They point out that the order book has increased by 20% to £24m since the start of the year, giving excellent forward visibility.

Mediocre results, with the promise of lower margins in H2. The fall in the share price this morning is not surprising.

Good results, invested a lot of cash within the business to build inventories, that will return to the balance sheet at the year end, should easily surpass £2mln at year end QS.!

Sound H1 results, with prospects good across all 3 divisions and a particularly optimistic outlook: "It is encouraging that we are continuing to see a flow of new opportunities across all of the Group's target markets with a particular emphasis on the UK rail market which continues to generate a good level of potential new business. The results for the first half of the year and a strong order book that includes almost £8 million of revenues scheduled for delivery in the second half of 2017 and nearly £11m for 2018 providing good support for the current year and a foundation for 2018. Against this backdrop and on-going customer discussions for new projects, the Board continues to be confident about the Group's future prospects." This section also reads very well: "Several of the new orders for eyeTrain systems have embodied requirements for additional functionality such as automatic selective door opening (ASDO) and driver only operation (DOO) which materially increases the software content of our systems. This is becoming increasingly essential for train operating companies to increase capacity and efficiency within rail networks. Consequently, eyeTrain is establishing itself as a core system for train operators in addition to its role in security, surveillance and passenger and train safety."

.....and another 5 buys this morning totalling £10k have propelled the price up almost 5%.

Good to see a 52k buy cause a decent tick up. Last year's interims were on 7th September - so hopefully only 2 weeks to go. Given the strong AGM statement and subsequent contract wins, I'm pretty sure the H1 numbers and outlook will be good.

215k at 7.25p, maybe it is meant to be 27.25p ?

Morning campers. I've re read the AGM Statement from the end of April which clearly states a £20m order book of which £13m is scheduled for this FY. In addition to that PEG have announced a further £4.5m of contracts since then. The reason for the fall IMO is summer volumes and the chart playing out to circa 25p support. I tried for more this morning at 25 but was only offered at 25.34 so I've kept my powder dry for the time being. Also hit hard and look cheap IMO are AMO/WGB and CTO. I'm looking to buy all 3 on further weakness.

I became very disappointed with the company's performance and way of communicating - see my post 948 dated 4/7/17 - and I subsequently sold out altogether, albeit with a small profit. Happy to go back in at some stage but not unless I see a meaningful step-change in the business. They may just be too small which is a problem for some companies - good products/ideas but no real scale compared to the competition. IMHO

Amazing to believe this can lose 30% of value on good news over contracts, rats in the house, most likely Chelverton selling!

Seeing the size of PEG. in their portfolio, and the diminishing percentage of the portfolio that PEG. constitutes, it is clear they are having an effect on the share price here.

Sort of getting the feeling that Chelverton Growth Trust may be the culprits behind the drip, drip selling, and the weakness here, no specific reason, but they reduced back in 2016, and still a large part of their portfolio.

A timely share sale by one of the Abdullahs back in the summer, ever since the co. despite its outperformance last year, continues to give back much of those gains - more's the pity, thought this had real momentum behind it after contract wins, but not to be! Find the persistent weakness a concern, unless we are seeing some form of cash raising for an acquisition!

Not sure what the the above has to do with progress here, down again today, and the mysterious Abdullahs still in control here, so what do ya think Rivaldo, where is this progress going to appear from?

Bombardier's Q2 results to 30th June are just out and are excellent, with a very positive outlook for Transportation and rising order books. Which bodes well for PEG: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/bombardier-inc-/gnw/bombardier-reports-second-quarter-2017-results/20170728112123H3996/ "Very strong orders in Transportation, book-to-bill(3) for the quarter at 1.4" "Highlighting the Company's performance in the second quarter were strong orders at Transportation, which reported a book-to-bill(3) of 1.4. Transportation's operational transformation and site specialization strategy also continues to gain traction, with key milestones announced in the quarter for its operations in Germany, Switzerland and Belgium." "During the second quarter of 2017, we won several significant orders in Europe, mainly in the U.K. and France, resulting in a book-to-bill ratio of 1.4. The majority of our order intake in the second quarter of 2017 is based on current product platforms, supporting the re-use of existing technologies."
