Added at 420p. That was a mistake. Seems to have been hit hard recently.

Not sure about your "debt" comment. RWS is hugely cash-generative, most of which is reinvested in acquisitions for growth. It had "Net debt at year end of £20.2m (2016: £1.5m), after the £74.8m cost of the acquisitions of LUZ and Article One Partners "AOP" and the £40.0m gross proceeds from the placing in February 2017". I imagine the figure you quote is a snapshot in time after the acquisition of Moravia in October, for which they took out a $160m facility for 5 years.

comp - I don't think you'd get a much more positive comment than that - but as always, DYOR.

"IC View At 26 times forecast earnings, RWS's shares are trading ahead of their two-year average of 24 times. However, the group’s growth has been impressive, and with patent filings continuing to rise and the Moravia acquisition opening up both a new sector and cross-selling opportunities with big name clients, there is still plenty of upside potential ahead. Combine this with low debt and a slew of recent analyst upgrades and we are convinced. Buy." IC rarely use the word "convinced" so I guess this may be a good one to enter when the share price is low. Does anyone got any view on this?

Thanks. 2018 similar to what I expected. Given the rapid rate that the Moravia business has been growing at, hopefully the expectations for 2019 might rise as the acquisition is successfully integrated.

Someone asked a while ago about Numis’ forecasts. They are forecasting sales of £310m, PBT of £65m and eps of 17.7p for 2018. For 2019, forecasts are sales of £342m, £70m PBT and eps of 19p. No doubt these are probably on the conservative side.

The recent acquisition was funded by a combination of debt plus placing It will be " highly and immediately"earnings enhancing in first year No dilution!

IMHO it's a bit daft talking about the current reported multiple when it ignores the eps growth for next year in part from the acquisition but includes what looks like a dilution to fund buying it!

I believe Numis have a target share price of 490p and a Hold rec dated 6 Dec unchanged from last month. Shore Capital also in Dec say hold but don't give a target. Berenberg initiated coverage at the end of Nov with a buy and TP of 530p.

thanks for that Phillis. Got to agree RWS isn't cheap, fun fact it's quite expensive but you cannot argue with the track record. Having topped up recently at 424, I'm happy to let AB and his team do what they do well.

According to Morningstar looks about a 1% beat. On a different note they make a number of hints as to how much of their profits will be US going forward. Both Luz & Moravia are heavily US based - I've worked out if they were purely US for 2018 just under half of profits are US based, so on a corp tax reduction to 20% that's up to 7.5% of extra profit which hasn't been factored into analyst forecasts from what I can see.
