I've continued to take profits on LTG and reinvest here - quite a substantial holding now. I've also put a smidgen into another Brode company, recently listed, called GRC International - huge spread and thinly traded. Only 2 MMs. RWS is finding it hard to crack 350p, having had several attempts over the last couple of weeks. I'm hoping for a substantial rerate, especially as the reason for the recent share price fall (currency) is not so applicable now.

The Daily Telegraph Shares in patent translator RWS have fallen because of currency movements, but that presents an opportunity to buy into a business with good fundamentals (385p).

When they're back at 550p - everybody will be buying! Best to buy before the herd, I usually find.

Well just added to these - think they are good value right now. In fact hard to see anything negative here.

I bought my first large chunk of these back in 2008 when that idiot Julian Cooke at Gartmore (?) was offloading Great business model, currency issues to be expected The key thing is markets, share in those markets and management competence No adverse signs yet

So they added circa 10%. Thanks for info. Any idea if they've been adding to their SCPA holding recently?

Is RWS an IHT free AIM share? The reason why I ask is because it seems to be tradeable on more than one stock exchange, which might exclude it.

jeffian - thanks for the Questor extract. Just in case others were wondering, the article was in today's DT.

It was just a question of when, fizzy!! I'm also encouraged by the excellent news from MCRO this morning - one of my few disasters of recent times. I now expect to recover all my loses there within the year - and in the meantime, pick up a very healthy divi. SCPA, another Buffetology share I hold oddly dropped a few percent yesterday (like RWS), but has recovered today. Thanks for the above info, jeffian - I had assumed that Buffetology would be increasing their holding on the current weakness - I recently heard a recording of the guy that runs the fund praising RWS (which is what prompted my own research and buying). At 385p, he's paid rather more than I have, but then again, I'm sure he's bought rather more than I have!!

From Questor in Daily Telegraph - "Update: RWS Holdings On April 24 RWS, the patent translation service regularly tipped here, issued a trading update that sent the shares falling by about 15pc. The group said recent weakness in the dollar, in which it earns much of its revenue, would hit profits. We asked two fund managers who hold the stock for their reaction. Keith Ashworth-Lord, of the SDL UK Buffettology fund, said: “It is always worrying to get a profit warning – albeit a minor one – in the wake of the volume of acquisition activity that RWS has pursued lately. “I had been watching the appropriate financial ratios for any sign that the earlier two big purchases, CTi and Luz, were not firing. I have not yet seen such a deterioration. I am further reassured by having Andrew Brode at the helm. He is a consummate manager and will be fixated on making sure that matters do not get worse. The free cash flow yield is 4.5pc, the return on equity is high teens and the balance sheet relatively strong. With this in mind, we have bought more shares at 385p.” Anthony Cross and Julian Fosh, of Liontrust’s UK Smaller Companies fund, said: “We view this setback as a short-term hiccup and have taken the opportunity to buy into share price weakness. The effect of currency trends on profitability is very much a case of swings and roundabouts, and has no impact on the attractions we have identified in RWS.” Buy."

Top sliced LTG again (see post 797 above)- the other Brode company. Just bought 2 x 2500 shares this morning in RWS. According to estimates on WFG RWS is now on a forward p/e of less than 20 and yield of 2.3%.

I'm aware of what seems to have caused the decline. I suspect much of this is due to shorting rather than disenchanted investors. As I said, I don't believe that statement justifies a 25% reduction (so far) in the market cap. Indeed, as you say, there were also positives to offset the negatives. I'm backing my own judgement and I anticipate a strong recovery leading up to the results. I think any shorts will be keen to reduce their positions prior to the results. We shall see. I'm shortly off on holiday, and I wouldn't be surprised to see a much improved share price upon my return.

The major decline clearly resulted from the trading update on 24 April. Markets are notorious for focusing on the bad news and discounting the good, so I assume it was the "below market consensus" comment wot did it ("However, if the current rates prevail, we would expect a profit outcome slightly below market consensus.") even though this is clearly a translational issue when reporting $ earnings translated to £. There is also an issue at Moravia which could have spooked the market - they say that they have € costs and $ revenues so that is a real, not just 'translational', margin erosion and they also say that "performance has been held back by a lower volume of activity than expected from a few clients". However, on the other side of the coin, they say that savings from integration synergies are higher than expected and the reduction in US corporate tax from 35% to 21% will have "a beneficial impact on earnings per share calculations and cash generation". So, make your choice - glass half full or half empty? I suspect that the weakness will continue until the results on 7 June when we see the cold hard cash (and no doubt increased divi).

I'm with you, jeffian. This has happened several times before with this share - and the recoveries have been swift. I think the inflection point is imminent. I'm not only sitting tight - albeit as a recent investor here that's not too painful - but will be adding more should there be any further significant drop in the next day or two. I fail to see the rational behind a 25% drop in the share price, and I'm not inclined to look a gift horse in the mouth. There's a nice big gap between 440p and 455p that needs filling, so that's my short term target.

Around 2004, I was happily invested in James Fisher, the marine services people, and was panicked into selling when, after a period of steady rise, the shares suddenly plunged for no apparent reason. After a few days of relentless downward movement, I assumed that 'someone must know something' and took my remaining profit at around 250p per share. The price today? Over £17. I never knew what caused that dip. I am a great believer in RWS and have recently acquired more. Unless I see good reason for the latest downward move, I'm sitting tight.

It's trying my patience, fizzy! But it's always darkest before the dawn. Looks massively oversold.

Glad I held off on this one - chart is the most unprepossessing imaginable but no doubt this will resurrect itself eventually for the patient.
