The higher the share price, the lower the yield becomes. But whose complaining. Certainly its been comprehensively re-rated.

Me neither but that would still leave them on a relatively modest rating. I know the dividend is now quite low in % terms but in cash terms they've increased it every year for quite some time now and it's forecast to be increased again by a similar % to last year's increase. Like OXIG, another thing I like is the high and increasing investment in R&D which bodes well for the longer term.

Lets hope it continues Blue. Results 20 Feb but I can't imagine these will vary greatly from the recent update.

Nice lump of cash going into the right side of the balance sheet today. In November 2012, we announced the acquisition of Analytical Spectral Devices Inc. ("ASD") and this transaction closed on 14 December 2012. In December 2012, we announced the divestiture of Fusion UV to Heraeus Holding GmbH for a total cash consideration of US$172 million and, as previously reported, this transaction is expected to close within the first quarter of 2013.

I make my own mind up buying in if the results are strong and likely to beat expectations as was the case this morning. CE's speak in code but its not so difficult to translate it.

So you too are presumably glad you took no notice of the experts as recently as January 10th !!!! "Bank of America Merrill Lynch cuts Spectris to underperform from neutral, target 2,080p from 1,820p,"
