Thanks Kamitora, I had a notion that 500 would be a good place to enter here but my limited research missed the fact that the stock is XD today. Bought a small position just in case the rumour mill puts Spectris in the takeover frame.

BRUSSELS (Dow Jones)--Japan's Nikon Corp. (7731.TO) has made a cash offer of EUR5.5 a share for Belgian industrial measurements company Metris NV (MTRS.BT), the company said in a press release Wednesday. The offer price represents a 106.8% premium to Metris' closing price in Brussels May 26. The acquisition is expected to close during the third quarter of 2009, Metris said. Metris' board of directors and executive management support the takeover bid, and certain major shareholders of Metris who jointly hold about 20% of the company have made a firm commitment to tender their shares to Nikon Corp., the company said.

The market is in a mad mood - the Ch. Exec. buys 7k shares at 767, an action that would normally boost the price, but the market sends it down to 748.

Excellent results Adjusted EPS 58.1 up 33% Total D +20% - highest increase in the company's history. I note they have now stopped the share buyback programme. If the cash flow continues at the same rate this will wipe out net debt within 12 months. Alternatively, if you listen to the results presentation on their website the 'acquisition' word is mentioned quite frequently - perhaps there is something in the pipeline which will use the cash. Before today forecast EPS growth for 08 was 15%. That could now increase, but taking that figure a PEG 1 would be reached at 1002p. The 52 week high was 995 last May, so I consider that to be achievable within 12 months (the exact timing depending on the mood of the market as a whole). The presentation is worth it just to get a feel of the good geographical and industry spreads of this company. The price is now back to where it was in mid November

Anyone around? If not, this must be a very overlooked share. I bought yesterday in anticipation of a good statement tomorrow. Among reasons: www.spectris.com gives a webcast of the interim results presentation, which I have watched. I noted the following: 1) Comment that the increase in the dividend, at 15%, was the highest for years due to their confidence in the outlook. 2) They are big in minerals and mining with operations in India – a growth area 3) 7% of turnover goes to R&D which is described as 'our lifeblood'. Forecasts are good (at 674): Year Ending Revenue (£m) Pre-tax (£m) EPS P/E PEG EPS Grth. Div Yield 31-Dec-07 676.45 98.05 53.06p 12.4 0.6 +21% 18.62p 2.8% 31-Dec-08 704.39 103.40 61.50p 10.7 0.7 +16% 19.72p 3.0% 31-Dec-09 736.40 113.75 67.40p 9.8 1.0 +10% 18.50p 2.8% On 1/11 as part of a larger article Shares magazine said: This manufacturer of electronic and electrical equipment is also a cash generator. A remarkable 93% of operating profit was converted into cash in the first half. Debt is low and a share buy-back programme is in full swing. Operating margins rocketed by almost three percentage points to 12.8% and should top 13% for the year and maybe 14% for 2008. It is a boom time for Spectris, particularly as the European economy has gathered strength – some two-fifths of sales are in this region ,with a quarter to the US. Only 4% are in the UK, which is typical for the new breed of globally-competitive, fast-growth UK engineers. 27/11/07 FD buys 4164 @ 709.
