johndoe23: Continued share price strength. Plenty more upside to come here imho
energeticbacker: Featured in the latest Investor's Champion update: At the current share price of 69p, the market capitalisation is £67m. This looks decent value relative to larger AIM peer Judges Scientific (LON:JDG).
rivaldo: Techinvest had an introductory feature on SDI in this month's issue, in the "Market Miscellany" column. Above all, they conclude that SDI are a Buy - and that they will "write more next month". There's nothing that's new to long-term holders here. But they note that SDI are well positioned to benefit from "the global expansion of automation and in-process instruments, as well as medical and pharmaceutical research". And that they like buy and build models like SDI's, which offers strong potential growth as a consolidator in a targeted niche.
tjbird: SDI Group (SDI) : Corp Life Sciences Running the Slide Rule over SDI SDI was selected in finnCap’s Slide Rule QVGM+ top 30 stocks in Q1 2020, reflecting the projected strong sales and EPS growth over the next two financial years of 30% and 31% respectively, buoyed by recent acquisitions but more importantly the rising ROCE. The prospect of sustainable organic growth is considered likely for this buy-and-build model given ongoing investment to support portfolio companies’ ambitions. These quality metrics are also seen in Judges Scientific (a larger buy-and build investment story), which despite three-year 9% EPS CAGR, trades on a FY 2020 P/E of c.25x and FCF yield of 4.2%. Given the successful acquisition and integration of 11 businesses over the past six years, and mindful of opportunities that still exist for SDI, we are raising our target price to 105p
mrnumpty: With SDI's share price looking unloved , giving the Company a market cap of a mere £ 46 million , might it not be vulnerable to a predator , such as Judges Scientific , which has a market cap of £ 291 million ? I'm certainly not ramping , as I have a reasonable exposure to SDI and , anyway , should a potential purchaser appear , it would increase the share price of SDI . I'm merely trying to add to our discussion . All the best .
hastings: Put together the below which may be of interest. Last week saw Cambridge based SDI Group releasing an end of year update to the market, which was, by and large on the day received positively. Indeed, the share price moved northwards, as the company announced that full year 2020 results would be in line with current market forecasts. Of course, as in keeping with other companies now updating or reporting, SDI has understandably withdrawn current market guidance for the financial year ahead which is pretty much to be expected given the as yet, unknown time lines and the potential for disruptance from the Coronavirus. Although as I mention the share price moved forward, some investors clearly exited on Friday, the shares pulling back close to 10% lower at 52p. Some holders appeared to express a nervousness regarding the potential for a collapse in profits for the forthcoming year, whilst others seemed to be expecting an imminent placing. In order to seek some possible clarity on the picture, I once more, as has been customary now since 2013, caught up with CEO Mike Creedon and Chairman Ken Ford. On the issue of a near term placing as some have suggested could be in the offing, Ford dismissed the notion, telling me that they do not currently need to raise cash and referred me to the content of the release. Within that, SDI referred to its sporting a strong balance sheet that holds cash in excess of £4.5m which standing against bank debt of £8.9m looks comfortable enough. Obviously, the current lock down situation brings disruption and uncertainty, but given that we know that the economy is surely going to have to open up sooner rather than later, as a holder of SDI shares I remain comfortable with the statement. As others will know within SDI's broad and diverse interests there is some decent exposure to the health sector along with others supporting that. Creedon informs me that some aspects of the group have been designated as essential businesses and as part of that are involved in providing their customers with components for medical and scientific products used in the fight against COVID-19. There is no inkling as to what these may be involved in, confidentiality playing a part, but it is certainly welcome news that SDI is playing a part in a fight against the virus and that the group remains profitable and cash generative. No doubt some may view the removal of future guidance as a fly in the ointment and have obviously already made their decision on that. However, the team here navigated by Creedon and Ford has done an excellent job over the last five years and under their leadership, I'm happy to stick with the story which remains an attractive one for ongoing growth. Both repeat the acquisition mantra, which not surprisingly remains an important ingredient to future growth here and Creedon says that although there is nothing on the agenda right now, they continue to look. He adds that he is hopeful that there will be a number of acquisitions available at the end of this pandemic. As bad and unwanted as the current lock down situation is, in relation to the former, SDI could find biding its time provides for some decent opportunities further ahead following on from previous excellent acquisitions. Any future buy is likely to be at the smaller end which Creedon confirms will be funded from its own resources as opposed to going back to the market. Looking at the share price graph, SDI has traded in a 52 week range from a 20p low up to a 92p high, which was marked by a sharp retrace to 40p last month, the result of the global market meltdown. It is probably fair to say that the high was very much up with events, whilst the 40p floor provided for an attractive entry point for others who had seemingly missed the boat able to get on board. Right now of course, we are very much dealing with unknowns and uncertainty's where often cool heads are lost in moments of panic and where logic often goes out of the window. From a personal perspective in the case of SDI, I'm happy to hold and await for further developments whilst a further reversal in the share price to the March levels may well provide for another buying opportunity. Each to their own of course, but given Creedon and Ford's belief in continued organic growth progress and the potential for further additions, then SDI surely remains an attractive proposition for the long term.
rivaldo: I wonder if the decision to make some more (well-deserved) LTIP grants to management signals that SDI believe this should be the bottom for the share price: Https://
mrnumpty: After allowing five months of contributions from Chell , eps forecasts remain at 3.6p . However , for next year , 4.3p is predicted . So , at the current price of about 60p , that equates to a p/e of 16.67 and 13.95 respectively ( less , if there is net cash on the books ) . The share price is considerably below its 20 and 50 day moving averages , and is at the 200 moving day level ( this can easily be found on the Hargreaves Lansdown site for SDI under share charts ) . So , does this 33% drop in the share price to this level indicate support ? Yes , we have to look forward and anticipate events but , apart from rather less than 10% exposure to China , the only danger I can see is that of SDI's clients being hit . There was a very big market correction in August 2018 , but does anyone remember that ?
mrnumpty: I agree with what the other sceptics write here , regarding Dan the Epic's -prognostications . It would have been more convincing if he'd looked into his crystal ball a couple of weeks ago , when the share price was 90p . With regard to Alphabeta4 , my impression is that Judge's has fallen far less than SDI , with Judges showing an abrupt drop yesterday morning , but only from £ 56.60 to £ 52.20 , whereas SDI have fallen from 82.80p on Monday morning to 67.98p now ( a near-18% drop ) , with the price appearing to be slightly recovering . With regard to any potential problems concerning possible interruptions to the international supply chain caused by the Wuhan virus , surely Judges would be just as much , or as little , susceptible as SDI Group . Although we use the much larger Judges as a comparator here , my totally unscientific glance at the share prices of other Aim and small-cap stocks is that they all dropped abruptly yesterday morning , but that they are all showing a cautious recovery . A gut-wrenching time for investors , but I'm holding on to my SDI shares as I happen to believe that , unless the entire capitalist world is about to collapse , we might look back in a few years and see SDI at a markedly higher level . I distinctly remember that it was at this time of the year , after the new head of The US Federal Reserve , Jerome Powell , had made comments which were construed as indicating that he would put up interest rates , that world stock markets hit a nadir , from which they fully recovered . I'm certainly not a virologist , but I've just checked stock markets , and they are starting to show a bounce ( hopefully not the deceased cat type ) : Dow Jones + 1.05% ; Nasdaq + 0.98% ; FTSE 100 - 0.37% ; FTSE 250 - 0.95% ; CAC and DAX flat . Do your own research , and good luck .
melody9999: Here is the conclusion Riv SDI Group is smaller than Judges Scientific and is cheaper on a range of metrics, including Slater’s PEG ratio - a classic measure of how much investors are paying for the promise of future growth - and it is when viewed as a ‘growth at a reasonable price’ stock that SDI looks most attractive as an investment. In terms of financial strength, acquisition track record, free cash flow generation and overall quality, it does not quite live up to JDG’s exacting standards - yet - but management appears to have done a good job so far, and the group has ample time and opportunity to prove itself. That said, history is littered with value-destroying acquisitions. Buy and build strategies can go wrong, so it is not without risk. One point that clearly differentiates the two companies is their attitudes towards shareholder dilution. While Judges keeps a tight rein over its share count, SDI has nearly quadrupled its number of shares in issue over the past five years. In fairness, the funds raised have helped drive the company’s strategy and consequent share price growth. It would be positive to see SDI kick on from here and continue to scale up with minimal further dilution. Another positive sign would be to see the board increasing their own holdings in the company. SDI is bigger than it was five years ago, with a stronger balance sheet, a more diversified revenue stream across multiple geographies and has a more liquid shareholder base. Its subsidiary companies continue to establish a track record of profitable growth, which should translate into more free cash flow. All of these factors make SDI an attractive acquirer, which bodes well for its stated strategy and gives this stock the potential to be a high QM compounder.
