Hmm, scratching my head a bit with this morning's price action. I presume there has been a broker downgrade following the outlook statements (will try and check)? Which would seem strange given the in line (despite currency headwinds and tough LfL comparatives) comments today.

Victrex made a strong start to its 2018 financial year, with a continuing positive performance in the Industrial business, offset by a slightly weaker performance in Medical. Against a weaker comparative, Q1 revenue of GBP78.7m was 41% ahead of the prior year period (Q1 2017: GBP55.7m), with Q1 Group sales volume of 1,051 tonnes being 30% ahead of the prior year (Q1 2017: 810 tonnes). Alongside continuing strength in Industrial, the Group's Q1 performance also reflects three specific items which were not in the comparative period. These are the benefit from currency hedges taken on at the most favourable post-Brexit rates; sales from our Zyex acquisition; and a sizeable proportion of volumes for the large Consumer Electronics order, compared to negligible volumes in Q1 2017. Excluding these items, our underlying momentum is broadly unchanged from the positive performance we saw in the second half of 2017. Victrex saw good performances across most end markets, with Electronics being the strongest performer and a steady start in Aerospace. Medical saw a weaker end to the quarter, although we continue to see progress in our innovative PEEK-OPTIMA(TM) HA Enhanced product for the Spine market and outside the US. Our pipeline of new products remains strong. We have now started supplying the first parts for our Gears mega-programme to a major European car manufacturer, whilst in Magma, a deployment of a 2.5km flowline by Tullow Oil in West Africa supports our expectations of growth this year. Victrex retains a highly cash generative business model, with no change to its financial position since 30 September 2017. Currency remains supportive for 2018, with the most favourable currency rates coming through in the first half and a heavy bias towards Q1. Looking further ahead, Sterling's re-rating currently implies an increasing headwind for 2019. Outlook Jakob Sigurdsson, Chief Executive of Victrex, said: "Victrex has made a strong start to 2018. If the strength in our Industrial business continues to offset weakness in Medical, it could offer a limited degree of upside potential to expectations, although it remains very early in the year and our underlying momentum is broadly unchanged from the second half of 2017. "Our priorities for 2018 are to remain focused on driving growth, on cost efficiency and to show further progress in our Polymer & Parts strategy."

Only bought in in the last year and did so on a buy and forget type startegy. Appear well positioned for consistent long term growth and hence why I can live with the 20x-ish PE. Nice special dividend as well which demonstrates management's confidence in the future. This wont be something which doubles in a year but should deliver reliable growth

Patience this has been a growing income generator for me over the 4 years I have owned the share. The recent dividends announced will take my income to 16.5% and unrealised capital gains of 49%. This is a well run company working to a plan which includes the occasional special dividend when cash allows. It has risen to currently being my second highest holding.

Is no one interested in this company. I bought in at £14 in May '16. Still holding and am nearly 80% up .....then there are the dividends. Special divi announced this week. A good reason to be happy. I'll keep selectively buying the dips.

In January we were discussing the likelyhood of £20 being breeched and whether it would hold or slip back and revisit and revisit etc., August now and £20 looking more hardcore. Terrificly strong charts so if it is going to dip below £20 once again, I'm not expecting it to retrace within the remainder of this month. In fact the question now in August is slightly different: Is over the £20 line for keeps now?

Chief exec. retiring and last time I looked had about 4% of shares in the company. Could be interesting times ahead.

Interesting article on iii by Beddard; seems they are moving up the value chain by making components (like Gooch and Housego) not just raw Peek and he is sceptical of the LTIP scheme and so am I; just wonder how it can be much more of an incentive to the chief exec for instance who already has a stake of c £57m at the present price.
