Yeah looks good, if we keep going upwards the next resistance on the chart could be around 340p.

I also bought some kie yesterday also I like Sony but I guess currency risk putting me off but think there is big upside.

Hi Chadders yes I agree with you, I picked up a small amount after to slicing a couple of other shares.Will add when my funds clear, Halifax share dealing slow taking 6 working days to clear.

wipo1, I know this company very well, I can't believe it's lost 40% of its value in the last 12 months. I genuinely believe sentiment will change but not sure when. On fundamentals alone it is very cheap at current levels.

Chadders Thanks for the research mate, I have been in vsvs a few times before got stopped out last time other times made a profit but sold too early.I'm going to make a purchase once funds clear into my share dealing account. Like you say looks very cheap atm.

A little over twelve months ago Vesuvius had merger plans with Morgan Advanced Materials very much in their strategic thoughts. The two companies share some markets and geographic footprint, and both are essentially ceramic materials technology biased and vsvs could see major synergies. Despite this it never developed into a serious negotiation. A quick comparison today of the financials of both companies is quite startling. VSVS sales: £1,444 million against £921 million VSVS profit: £95.8 million against £7.8 million VSVS EPS : 35.5pence against 2.7pence VSVS ROCE: 7.78% against 4.71% VSVS mkt Cap: £792 million against £595 million One has a P.E. ratio today of 8.2 and one has a P.E. ratio of 77.3 I reckon VSVS is seriously undervalued but DYOR etc.

wipo1, vsvs is perceived as particularly sensitive to world steel production and steel prices. Coupled with the market decline over the last month or so its been battered down the way on pretty slim volumes. Could be ready for a correction. Few people realise the total dominance they have in their markets and how fixated they are on vigorously defending their market share. Still confident that this will turn.

I'm getting tempted Chadders, still watching atm. Fund managers still topping up and price keeps falling?

Absolute no brainer methinks. Fantastic company, cash generator, market leader, should announce an EBITDA circa £120 to £130 million according to their guidance. Currently valued at just over £800 million.

One step forward two steps back, hard to call bottom. Still watching no position yet!

Yes update not great but fund managers seem to keep buying the dips for some reason. Might be worth a punt now for a small amount?

Thanks Wipo, I got out of both VSVS and Alent a couple of years ago(I got them both through holding Cookson) Badly missed out on the takeover of Alent. (just looked it was only July that they agreed to be taken over, I suppose the name will disappear soon Still like to keep an eye on them

Any reason for the 6.6% drop in share price today, a few days ago they announced a new finance director starting in Dec at around £1 mil a year, has he decided not to join????

Red thanks yes you could be right I was lucky to get out Drax and moved into engie looks safer but currency risk and French withholding tax is a pain!

Hi Wipo I would be very careful with Drax. Big problems going forward, likely to underperform. IMHO.

Hi Wipo Good to hear. May be a good time to invest when greece deal is done (until the next crisis) Thanks Red Only downside for me is another good British company in foreign hands (plus all the IP & patents they hold), soon wont be anything decent to invest in UK wise lol.

Hi Rabbar well done on alnt I am still mainly cash I had some BP sale cash spare and bought some alnt engie and banco santander all small amounts but banked good profits considering the amount I bought.Take care and good luck where you put proceeds. I am tempted with Drax but only for a small punt.

rabbar Thanks for the clarification. I have to confess I was too lazy/tired to look it up. I could just about remember that there had been some activity a while ago. Well done for holding on to Alnt. red

"Didn't Vesuvius spurn Mgam a while ago?" Was mgam that turned down a merger with Vsvs. Hi Wipo Hope all is well. Are you still mainly in cash? Alnt was a good result for me as I still held the majority of the shares I held when Cevian bought in. Not very often it has happened. Seen quite a few shares I sold too early rocket in the past.
