Terry - welcome to the thread, which is mercifully free of rude aggressive idiots and endless inane repetitive posts like "unleash the beast". What a nice contrast to so many BBs!! I feel that today's share price answers your question. Marked down by MMs first thing this morning - and now back up again. I doubt we will see any further significant falls, unless the planned new acquisition increases debt or equity substantially. I think the management is too canny to overstretch themselves. Previous acquisitions have been earnings enhancing. Also they have a habit of announcing new contract wins on a fairly regular basis. This is not a trading stock - so don't buy them on a T20 - but if you are looking for a solid performer which will do you well over a few years - this will take some beating! Best wishes, WD

Good spot Shauney - thanks for the link. It does look like a good buying opportunity. I've got thousands of these so fully loaded - but excellent long term hold.

King's-Lynn based filtration specialist Porvair said it is close to snapping up another business just weeks after announcing a £3.22m swoop for an American company. hxxp://www.edp24.co.uk/business/king_s_lynn_based_porvair_eyes_further_deals_1_2249094 Todays Times also says PRV are a good long term buy after yesterdays drop.

Surprised such a good share has dipped so far after posting good results. Seems like a good opportunity to buy in or top up though imo.

W, I've put in my minimum eps forecast of 12.4 into my spreadsheet and a share price of £2.50 (forward PER of 20)as a buy signal. Hold me to account :-) apad

I doubt it APAD. They will be doing the rounds with brokers after the figures and there is not a lot of stock about. Depends on the market generally of course - but I don't imagine they will go down much from here. With consistent rising EPS and profit the PER will fall if the share price remains static. They have a track record of winning repeat orders and I wouldn't be surprised if they announced a new contract win in the next few months. It's clearly not a T20 stock - but for the long term, and I cannot see anything other than a short term drop as people sell off after the figures. All imho of course!

If the H2 eps goes up by the same percentage as H1 (possibly a lower bound case because of new orders not contributing to H1 and the business being H2 biased) then the forward PER drops to 25. Doesn't sound so highly priced if you say it quickly. All the commentators will say some variation on 'highly priced' because they are paid for words and those help fill the column. The question is how highly priced and I am starting to feel more comfortable with the valuation ROR currently on a PER of 25 (not forward). I am hoping for a steady decline in price in the next couple of months. apad

These sets do this. Will probably come back on a few purchases. Naked trader loaded up with more last week so he must be confident as well. Got these for £1.03 so will hold out for a lot longer.

Hard to find anything negative.The slow US market the only one. -- Encouraging financial performance o Revenue grew by 8% (7% in constant currency) to GBP38.6m (2012: GBP35.9m). o Profit before tax increased by 27% to GBP3.1m (2012: GBP2.4m). o Earnings per share up 23% to 4.9 pence (2012: 4.0 pence). o Net debt reduced by 22% to GBP3.0m (30 November 2012: GBP3.9m). "Several large contracts are now underway. All are proceeding to plan but have a limited impact on these results" The acquisition of CEM will also benefit the next figures. They have even increased the interim dividend for the first time since 2004

Comments from the boss for the future are optimistic . More growth . Not sure what SETS will do to these today. Still holding either way.

Cash generation excellent, technology convincing. Forecasts look low based on interim eps. Glad I didn't press the sell button. Let's hope for some profit taking. bb: noooooo! I've lost too many good companies to takeovers. apad

L It's hard to see PRV doing an ARM, given that it sells filters. However, it is a small company so is perhaps a little more sprightly than its hi-tec cousins. I've bought on 5 occasions over the years, so can stand a pull back if there is one. However, I find it difficult to envisage results so positive as to prevent profit taking on Monday. Let's hope that I am wrong - it's too late to stop now! apad ps you're correct about Schwartz, but given that he bought at 34p I doubt whether his self-flagellation is very vigorous. pps there has been a significant derating of PRV's larger fellows (e.g. ROR, RSW, SPX, etc.) recently.

APAD - I seem to recall about 6 months ago the esteemed David Schwartz drawing a similar conclusion to yours based on known data and some surmising of his own - and I believe he cashed out. I would imagine that now he kicks himself big-time whenever he looks at the PVR chart. At the time I stayed in - indeed increased my holding - because I saw (and still see)the story here as one that is developing and has the potential to deliver returns over the next year or so that will reward one's patience handsomely. We all invest for different reasons and work to different time-horizons. Personally, I can only see yet more upside here in the medium-term given the excellent management within the company and the surging markets that it is involved with. Still, as I say, each to his - or her - own in this game!

In April 2 Directors sold about 350,000 shares at 228. PRV is on an historic PER of 30, a price to cash flow of 26 and a price to free cash flow of 33. The only brokers forecast of eps I can find is 11.36. Equity Development suggests a valuation of 230p. I'm having great difficulty stopping myself from pressing the sell button. apad
