Just bought a few at 705p. Always thought this was a high quality company but until recently I didn't like the price. Results 14th Sept.

To be on a government grant (State Aid) making panel means that Ricardo functions as a Public Authority, this means that it is potentially legally liable under the Human Rights Act 1998 for any decisions that may infringe citizens convention rights, this is a very high risk game. It seems Ricardo's "niche" market is putting client in better financial position through government aid, if this is what this company thrives on then it is a matter of time before it all comes crashing down because the business model seems to be based on politics rather than trade?

"Our mission at Ricardo is a simple one: to play a major part in solving the world's big issues around transportation, pollution, climate change and the efficient use of scarce resources such as oil and water." Really? Do any of the retail investors understand this companies business model? Their main source of income seems to be "Consulting" Division. I am trying to understand this company but unless "Consulting" means pulling chains for clients, I don't get it. Do you? I understand that they sit on grant making panels, they vote to give grants to companies so do they get hired to influence the vote in favor of their clients? And if so, is this the business model? If it is, then it seems it could be an illegal business model. Your views please.

I like the time gap! This is a high quality company. I've looked at it several times with a view to buying but have not yet done so. would certainly buy on weakness.

It's always been quiet - given the picture over the last year or so, it's not that surprising, but what's woken it up again I'm not sure. A bit of news of course, but nothing I wouldn't have thought to cause this sort of rise. Not a holder myself, just follow it from general interest in the sector.

And of course the share price doesn't tell the full story because it's been paying a dividend for most if not all of that time - with dividends reinvested it would have been an even more stellar performance.

When this thread was started in 2003 when share price was less than £3 entitled "I am calling the bottom" who would have foreseen passing a record share price of £9 in 2015 after the worst financial crash in living memory in 2008

interesting that they drew down £9M on a new debt facility to give a cash level of £20M. Could an acquisition be on the horizon?

Indeed -surprised there is not more interest in this quality company. I really need some earnings upgrades to justify buying as the valuation now looking fairly full.

Hey might as well repeat the above. Anyway have a read of today's update. Very solid indeed. What a good company this is. No mention of impact from Euroland slowing or anything negative. Probably because their main customers in autos are global players. Well positioned company which seems to be wining some good new business.

Very solid looking results. Nice dividend increase. Strong order book and confident outlook statement.

Big volume today - unclear if its Buy/Sell but recent fillings suggest some selling going on I'm holding but will be over the Atlantic when they release tmw, ah well - hoping no nasty surprise on landing but placing stop in case...

Thx steeplejack. Read the interim dated 19 May, may wait till the finals are published 11 Sep. Certainly a quiet board.

I really don't know.I guess I could wheel out strength of sterling,concerns about China and the like but it doesn't really explain the size of the pull back.This remains a favourite of Questor I believe.Loosely I regard this as a Kentz-like company.Well managed,a niche engineering operation.You can't go far wrong with the company on the current rating which is not demanding.
