|Positive write-up in this week's Shares mag for SIS off the back of last week's results also highlighting this as a potential takeover opportunity.|
|I only have a few of these (bought in a last placing for the EIS tax breaks, but was scaled back significantly), but I must go along to the AGM this year. The Chairman, John Clarke, was my bosses, bosses boss at GSK, so it will be a nice for me to be asking the questions for a change, rather than vice versa.|
|Indeed that's the scenario we all hope plays out here.|
Primark and British Sugar owner ABF is attempting a £60m health kick after buying two sports nutrition companies favoured by muscle men and marathon runners.
The FTSE 100 company has snapped up Reflex Nutrition, which sells tubs of protein supplements online, and High 5, which produces energy gel sachets for athletes on the go.
Note to self: Purchase price of Reflex Nutrition is at 4X annual sales (SIS sales currently £12m p/a and growing, market cap £36m)|
|As long as you accept the premise of this company is not to make money but to grow sales as quickly as they think they can and then be bought out at a multiple of sales then these are good numbers. If you want them to make some money they are now forecasting a large loss next year than this with increased marketing spend. I am in for the multiple of sales story so 30% growth is the key number for me. The plan is not without risk though|
|Indeed I topped up with a few thousand on Friday. Does anyone have a view why the share price has been weak over the last few weeks?|
|Results on Thursday - Good buying opportunity here now given the recent pullback.|
|I bought a initial chunk this week but was quite hard to get stock.|
|And taking lots of others out around him at the same time....|
|Yeah, he's also known for crashing in the final sprint as well ;-)|
|I'm not into cycling but I know Cav is known for sprint finishes and not long distance. Maybe he's put himself in the pack with a finishing line in sight...|
|Well he's put in a six figure sum so some confidence, I'd like to know what price he invested.|
|Lets hope Cav is as good at investing as he is at cycling :-)|
|Mark Cavendish takes six figures stake in SIS...
|Ticked up today, still has the potential for more upside imv.|
|I've just invested a small amount here - made it move down a penny! Good start!
As a cyclist I'm very aware of the SIS brand.|
|One thing I'm certain of, is that SiS is an extreme originator or litter. I see so many empty SiS packages scattered on the roads and footpaths. There's got to be some minor regulatory risk in this regard.|
|According to leading market intelligence agency Mintel as many as one in four Brits has consumed a sports nutrition product in the past 3 months.
In the United States the market is, not surprisingly, huge, with sports nutrition forecast to surpass US$8 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of more than 7%.
Could SIS be a prime acquisition target?|
|Moving on up :))|
|Always had faith in this one|
|Strong update this morning - good growth numbers. Trader Tim seems bullish about the company as well. I'm looking forward to results in March, really strong momentum now building up to that.
|Yes a very good morning/update|
|Lol no chance unless they are whiskey based.|
