lammylover: Great buying opportunity - 18% growth in last quarter, cash rich, dividend payer. Only problem here is the NASDAQ tech sell off - yesterday SPT opened up 2% higher to around 242p, before slumping with the NASDAQ 4.5% selloff, such that SPT closed down 2.5%. I'm hoping there will be a bounce back at some point, as clearly SPT is undervalued and surely continued good results, must be picked up soon by more of the fund managers?

km18: ..from last year... Company overview: Spirent communications is a global leader and innovator in test and assurance for the technology industry. The company provides testing solutions to ensure providers of mobile networks, cloud solutions, cybersecurity and connected devises are meeting promises they have made to their customers. Company operates in 49 countries through 1400 employees, with biggest revenue coming from the Americas. To meet the growing portfolio of services provided, Spirent is expanding the breath of abilities of its tests, offering the most innovative solutions across all sectors. To achieve that SPT is continuously investing in R&D, with high levels of CapEx and several acquisitions over the past 10 years. The rich history going even through the dotcom bubble and potential coming from the early stages of 5G wave make the stock very attractive. Main business is the networks and security division, generating 60% of the revenue and exuding reputation with clients like Sprint, Ericsson and AT&T. The continuous technological advancement of its clients, meant that Spirent was performing very well even in 2020. As a matter in fact, the company has seen growth in its top line and net income for the past 5 years. The acquisitions have generated goodwill, currently at 24% of total assets, but is well balanced by good operating performance and positive outlook. Interim results show 14% growth in orders and 9% in revenue. Company is enjoying  good progress in all its projects and a “strong financial platform for busier H2”. The nature of the revenues is generating better gross margins than peers and ROCE stands at 23%. There are good news with regards to visibility, as SPT is securing more multi-years contracts, meaning these figures could improve further. Strong trading with reported profit before tax of $34.8m -12% growth on adjusted basis, created the opportunity for a 10% increase in the interim dividend. Projects: Spirent has acquired octoScope Inc in March, making the company a leader in Wi-fi testing Short analysis (Interim): Cash for the interim went down by 36%, due to dividends, acquisition of $51m CA/CL =  1.96 Cash ratio = 1 Interest coverage (annual for 2020)= 200 P/S TTM = 4.15 , which is higher than the industry average BV ps = 72.4 , growing at 1.46% Operating profit was $44.7m, up by 13% compared to H1 2020 Gross profit Margin = 72%, which is line with H1 2020... ...from WealthOracleAM https://wealthoracle.co.uk/detailed-result-full/SPT/64

p1nkfish: Hope you are right. SPT is 10x market cap of CLX. Smaller tends to rise faster with better growth potential.

p1nkfish: A fair few with real depth of experience and much bigger than SPT in tech are mentioning they are being crimped by supply chain issues and leadtimes. Fingers crossed. If you can't build it you can't bill it.

disc0dave45: Robbie Burns (The Naked Trader) 9th Sept in his update mentioned SPT as follows:Spirent (SPT) looks more and more like a potential bid target to me. It has lots of assets and great potential that others you'd think would want to snap up and I have bought quite a few.Its testing applications have big demand at the moment and it has substantial resources including a giant cash pile.Talked about this one before. Even without a bid it looks to have some superb revenue streams and if it can get above 300p which is a barrier at the mo there could be great upside even without a bid.

disc0dave45: Berenberg:Telecoms testing group Spirent Communications (SPT) is benefiting from 5G tailwinds that could ensure its second half is even better than its first this year, according to Berenberg.Analyst Bharath Nagaraj retained his 'buy' recommendation and increased the target price from 310p to 340p on the stock, which closed up 1.2%, or 3.6p, at 300.2p yesterday.He said Spirent is a 'top vendor' in its sector and in recent years has 'won more multi-year service contracts and pivoted towards a software-as-a-service model, increasing its revenue visibility'.'The company has reorganised its salesforce and made investments with the intention of diversifying its customer base through adding hyperscaler and government accounts,' he said.All this means Spirent published 'a strong set of numbers in the first half of 2021 though faced with tough competition'. He said there is the possibility that it will outperform his base case 'given the 5G tailwinds and we think there are initial signs that this is happening, especially because Spirent typically enjoys a stronger second half'.

uhound: Disappointing share price performance leading up to results tomorrow. Did think of selling after the recent pull back, but thought - "no" the results will prove it was right to sit tight! 🤞🤔
