OxmanThe only one I know was back in 2011 but nothing I know of now. This was from an article back then.The prospect of Victrex becoming a bid target was highlighted yesterday as positive broker comments helped the high-tech plastics company to surge up the mid-tier index.The Lancashire-based group was driven forwards 45p to 1,395p, with traders pointing to the decision by Goldman Sachs to name it as the broker's "top pick" in the mid-cap chemicals sector. Initiating coverage on Victrex with a "buy" recommendation and a target price of 1,830p, Goldman described it as an "attractive acquisition" target because of its "unique technology and customer relationships".Recommending the group toinvestors, the broker's analysts said it "presents an excellent opportunity to buy a consistently high-returning company", and they also praised its peers Croda and AZ Electronics, saying that all three "produce specialised products and operate in niche,

OXMANCHINA, INDIA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD REBOUND.Everyone expects an up tick in production and China is a massive consumer of commodities however the bounce back has been more subdued. A rising tide raises all ships so to speak. VCT has just reported lower sales but higher sale prices this means that a recovery would push profits to new levels

"Victrex manufactures PEEK, a plastic material used in everything from medical implants to mobile phones. The material is “high-quality” and “game-changing” but unfortunately for the company, the markets it operates in are “cyclical, competition is rife” and expansion has been “slow and costly. The company has a net cash balance, “historically enviable profit margins” and there is the prospect of further special dividends and share buybacks. But there are some valid concerns. PEEK is protected by patents, but alternatives exist. However, the shares pay an attractive dividend and are trading at a 25% discount to their average, meaning now is a good time to buy 1,569p." The Times

Net cash £66m but last years dividend represented a yield of only 3.8%.

Looks like the share has bottomed so bought in. The dividend is ok with a lot of up side.

I was just looking at the share. I'm buying these over the next few weeks. I just want to see if they break below 15

Held since 2015 and the share price is about the same as it was then in nominal terms, notwithstanding a surge above 3300p in 2018. Good dividends and specials in particular (the ordinary hasn't grown since 2018 or so). ROCE is strong and margins decent but have been weakening somewhat. I wonder whether we will see so many specials in future now buybacks are part of their framework? The key for me is they need to get growing - when will the mega programmes pay off?

Victrex plc issued an AGM and Q1 management statement this morning. Q1 Group revenue was £78.8m up 6% on Q1 2022: £74.6m. Average selling prices (ASP) were ahead of expectations, with good momentum from price increases and surcharge pricing. This helped to drive revenue up 6%, despite an 8% decline in Q1 sales volume of 948 tonnes. Following shareholder engagement share buybacks have now been included alongside special dividends for excess cash return options. Guidance for FY23 remains unchanged, i.e. another year of solid growth is expected. The business is profitable and the balance sheet also remains strong. However, valuation is a little unhelpful with forward PE ratio at 18.5x. Share price also lacks medium term momentum. VCT is well monitoring for the medium term, but there is no rush to buy...
