Some broker downgraded again?

Material director buy, increasing their holding by 50k when holding 300k previously, bodes well for the future.

Have added here after watching a while and waiting for the results. Nearly bought in February at 220p! As has already been discussed, results look fine and the growth story here looks good. The pull back surprised me, so have waited for the price to settle. Could not wait any longer! IC and other press coverage may help this week?

Enough to earn a good salary :)If a pension fund manager outperforms the relevant index by a couple of percent in a year,he'll be well chuffed.Thereagain,I agree it's hardly mind boggling.He's right slightly more than half the time.A toss of the coin really!

From Citywire Analyst Will Kirkness retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of 330p on the shares, which slumped 11.3% to 252p yesterday after a third quarter update suggested revenue growth of 2%, similar to the second quarter. ‘The outlook for the full-year mid-single-digit revenue growth remains consistent and implies 2-3% in the second half,’ said Kirkness. ‘Given recent updates from peers, that have seen mid-single-digit growth declines, we see the on-track tone as supportive.’ Will Kirkness, Wall Street Analyst at Jefferies, specializes in the General sector and covers 18 stocks with a 56.60% success rate. 56% not very good?

Yes you’re right that the US is clearly the place to get exposure to 5G but your observation is true of investments in general.The US is a far superior hunting ground.A pretty obvious comment given the FTSE 100 is currently over 10% lower than the peak it hit over 20 years ago in 1999.

Was going to keep a small stake based on anticipated ramp up of revenues from 5G but much better places to invest in the American market to get exposure to that sector

Oh dear, another massive disappointment - the market was pricing in a much better performance than this - another uk tech failure to add to the list - just no revenue growth of note - really really disappointing and sad to see

There appears to be support around 246 so a reasonable trade close to that - perhaps with a tight stop though. I’m not too confident in longer term buys atm given recent market rise but short term opportunities like this are worth looking for.

Frankly an 11% price fall on that update is difficult to fathom especially since I added in the mid 260s!Probably a large seller.Currently,the U.K. is far from a popular equity market choice with Brexit overhanging sentiment.Maybe we’ll get a better handle on things when broker notes update. Now seeing sizeable trades being printed after hours.Chunky deals including two of 3/4 mil each.They’re showing as buys but it’s more likely a cross plus there’s a sell of 487/- and one of 123/-.It was more than probable that there was a big seller today and the orders have been handled rather clumsily overall.

Even the 5g roll out should be helpful in the short term if you weren't thinking about the longer term picture.Also noticed the mention to improved margins through increased software revenue, that's certainly nice to see.

I think some may believe spirent to be short term cyclical, but with leo satellites yet to really get going, I believe spirent has many years of growth. Amazon Project Kuiper could turn out interesting for spirent.

I agree yet the volume is relatively high and i guess some chartists are pointing to broken support levels etc.The markets are feral just now.

In a note on Thursday, analysts at Liberum retained their ‘buy’ rating and 320p target price on the stock, saying they believed the company is “building up a solid long term business”, with weakness in its GPS accuracy testing products for missiles and drones being compensated by the Lifecycle Service Assurance strength, both in terms of revenue growth and margins.

It's now back at the July support, and on the 2-year trend line. If I wasn't in it already, for a great 5G play like this, i'd be buying here.

That's exactly it,sector rotation and not very well considered sector rotation..Both sides of the pond,there's a shaking out of the Covid favourites (especially tech) and a drive towards spurious recovery stocks.

Just had a quick glance, Mkt appears irrational at the moment, with struggling companies rallying, It may be the case of sector rotation, selling the winners and buying bombed out sectors. Not many companies have had positive growth through the pandemic, Spirents growth should increase as the pandemic ends.

Volex is the same, released strong results and was marked down almost 10% at open and is slowly heading back up.Seems to be a theme at the moment, especially in shares that have done well during covid.

FWIW I dont think it was dissappointing. its just that in todays market unless your figures are exceptional you run the risk of the share price getting marked down, sometimes disproportionally .

I wouldn't say dissapointing as it's in line with the strong update at the interims. It just hasn't surprised to the upside or the down, but based on net profit for H1 being 32m, which was double last year, and it being 2nd half and 4th quarter weighted, we can expect a good end of year result.Also has a continuously growing cash pile which is always helpful. I think people may have been expecting more so have sold off today, and expect it could fall in ST and then move back to high 200s at end of year.
