See the results sent the shares down so did my million share seller get a tip off.
Yes It was a negotiated trade. It's a SETS stock. The broker may have already worked the trade through the market.
Someone etc sold a million shares today two days before results and the price didn't move. Can someone explain this?
OMG both my tech shares look ripe for M & A. Spirent really does have a niche product now for 'fuzzing servers'. Well you know what they say, 'never look a gift horse in the mouth'. LOL :)
Results March 2nd
Best level for share price since early 2014...recovery coming through or takeover approach?
interesting reading: ""More news on 5G means a favourable read-across for the key 5G ‘name’ – Spirent. Today the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs has gathered 10 partner organisations together to run a 5G test in North Groningen – tests to be carried out at the end of the year. This is favourable for Spirent as it illustrates that 5G is getting closer and with it raises the possibilities of earlier revenue opportunities for Spirent. ""… lifted from a Panmure note on researchtree
Read Panmure Gordon & Co's note on SPIRENT COMMUNICATIONS PLC (SPT), out this morning, by visiting hxxps:// "As expected Spirent’s Q1 trading update was of the ‘all in line’ variety – this is despite a beat to our Q1 estimates. The highlights are cash generation, performance in the Networks division and that all important reaffirmation of the FY outlook. We have long commented that the macro backdrop remains poor but that Spirent is a story of getting its house in order..."
Read Panmure's note on Spirent Communications (SPT), out this morning, by visiting … “Despite last night’s warning by Juniper Networks, we think that Spirent’s forthcoming Q1 trading update should be of the vanilla ‘all in line’ variety. Whilst the end market remains difficult we think that investors will value messages and KPIs around consistency, rebuilding and unpicking the ‘hit&missitis’ of the past. Remember Spirent beat Q4 – so wags will whine that it will miss Q1 but this view ignores the structural changes being implemented by CEO Mr Hutchinson who, we think, is likely to reiterate the 2016 outlook (ie a flattish year).That said, we acknowledge that ‘turnarounds’ are typically punctuated by ‘misses’ and a tendency to disappoint over a prolonged period. However, despite a poor market backdrop, the changes are starting to deliver positive (baby step) results. There is a plethora of cloud and network-related tech events on in London this week (see below) and investors burning shoe leather will end up thinking about Spirent. Our general investment view (Buy when others are frightened) has captured the zeitgeist – Spirent shares outperformed by 21.2% in the past quarter but even after the rally it still enjoys an attractive valuation (2016E EV/Sales 1.4x)…”
Very pleasing 2H2015 results have bumped expectations up for this company. Should be enough to convince the City that the new management team are pushing the company in the right direction. I bought at the same time as J Silver @ 68p. There should be momentum to elevate the share price substantially higher on these figures. Used to be an Anite holder but as Spirent is becoming more agile, I can see greater opportunities for the company now. There should be no more talk about Rohde & Schwarz being a stronger company. The new team seem to be the right mix with greater foresight into the new areas of T & M where demand is growing. Looking forward to the new broker consensus notes today. The presentation can be heard on the Spirent website (excluding questions). Very good presentation - inc Q&A link :htTP:// Notice Panmure have increased TP to 120p from 115p. Should anyone be interested in the device testing falloff, Spirent have reached the bottom of that trough & operability testing will be making up the decrease of carrier aggregation revenue. I would say that there is a very promising outlook for Spirent now. There are headwinds of 6% for 2016 but this revenue decrease will be eliminated by growth areas, so 2016 remains on target.
This rise tells me its about to be New Years tip, or it may have been tipped at the weekend? Has it?
Spirent Acquires Wi-Fi Experience Monitoring Specialist Epitiro SPT.L - BSW 08-DEC-2015 07:00:00 Pioneering Wi-Fi Capabilities Extend Spirent`s Proactive Service Assurance Suite SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(Business Wire)-- Spirent Communications, today announced that it has acquired Epitiro, a pioneer and leader in the rapidly growing Wi-Fi experience monitoring market. The acquisition of Epitiro by Spirent builds on the success of a strategic partnership which has led to experience monitoring system deployments at multiple customers, including a tier 1 US service provider. Service providers and large enterprises increasingly rely on Wi-Fi to provide users with high-quality voice, video and data services and access to business-critical applications. Unfortunately, the complexity of Wi-Fi and its dynamic interaction with LTE and other mobile technologies often leaves providers and enterprises blind to the actual end user experience. Epitiro`s web-based platform provides continuous visibility of the end-user experience by proactively performing tests that emulate realistic user activities. Key metrics include availability of Wi-Fi connectivity, file transfer and web browsing speed, availability and performance of social media applications like Facebook and much more. Epitiro`s compact, rugged probes may be deployed in office buildings, factories, stadiums and other mobility locations providing real-time insight into the availability and experience of services. Spirent`s service assurance suite enables providers to proactively identify problems, often before they impact the customer experience. The suite consists of four product lines: Device and End-to-End, Network, In-Home, and Mobility. Each product line uses a patented set of proactive test technologies to assure the quality of devices and services before launch and during live operation. Epitiro`s solutions are now part of the newly-formed Mobility product line with a focus on assuring the experience of Wi-Fi and LTE services in mobility locations. "Our service provider and enterprise customers increasingly see Wi-Fi as an integral part of their strategy to provide services anywhere and anytime," said Des Owens, general manager of Service Assurance at Spirent. "With this acquisition, we`re building on the success of our strategic partnership with Epitiro and see an exciting opportunity to improve the visibility of Wi-Fi experience for many more service providers and enterprises worldwide. We`ll also be better positioned to integrate Epitiro`s pioneering Wi-Fi technology across our suite and to provide our customers with seamless support and services." Gavin Johns, managing director of Epitiro, added, "We are delighted to join the Spirent team and are excited by the prospect of working closely together to further build our business in this growing and exciting market."

Well, having read the third qtr trading update and the board change which was then followed by a non exec director buying 30,000 and having examined the balance sheet and noting the company do pay dividends, I've purchased my first, small, tranche. As always time will tell if this was a wise decision!!! Good luck to all holders.
I used to have system trading between Anite & Spirent but made sure all my funds were in AIE before their takeover. Spirent seem to be upping their game. Although I would like to be in for the long term ( had a punt today ), not really young enough to wait for the turnaround. The company strikes me as good value for a bigger fish. They are a cutting edge company but Wow, it certainly is costing them.
Trading Statement due on 5th November 2015
