cam - its a superb company. I've done pretty well out of it. Just think it might consolidate so I can get back in again a bit cheaper. But not holding my breath. Good luck all.

I think they are all behind the curve there. DJ comment SPECTRIS PLC (SXS.LN), a precision instrument maker, said it is well positioned for further growth in 2012 despite widespread economic uncertainty as it reported a big rise in full-year pretax profit, boosted by new product launches and acquisitions. "Whilst the current macro-economic outlook remains uncertain, [we] are confident that, as a result of continued investment in new products and applications, together with the growth opportunities our recent acquisitions provide, Spectris is strategically well positioned for the year ahead," Chief Executive John O'Higgins said in a statement.

0851 GMT [Dow Jones] Peel Hunt downgrades Spectris (SXS.LN) to hold from buy, noting the shares are up almost 30% year-to-date and now sit just 2% below its 1700p price target. Still, says the company's final results are strong and confirm the progress on margin and continuing push into emerging markets. Says, "The high-quality management team and conservative guidance compensate for limited visibility." Shares trade 2.3% higher at 1698p.

Results good as expected but is the outlook statement strong enough to send them higher? Maybe we'll see properly after the conference call.

OUTLOOK Commenting on the results, John O'Higgins, Chief Executive, said: "We are very pleased with the results achieved in 2011, and particularly with the strong close to the year. Looking ahead, the macro-economic outlook is uncertain. Our recent acquisitions bring more resilient earnings whilst providing opportunities in growth markets and the Board is therefore confident that Spectris is strategically well positioned for the coming year."
