Seems like any rise in share price for most companies is met with sustained selling/profit taking. Frustrating

Sadly missed the presentation and will have to wait for the replay. Thanks for the comments. VLX now my biggest holding as tightly run with a well defined vision. Five fingers in five juicy pies has got to be a good defensive buffer as well as a solid growth opportunity. I believe the next 12 months will see a rerate of the share price as the latest acquisition beds into the bottom line.

I've just had a dividend notification from DividendMax claiming VLX is going ex tomorrow for the interim dividend, but giving no declaration date. I can't find any RNS that mentions it, or on the VLX website. And the amount looks wrong for the interim div, same div as the final. Anyone else seen it, or got any info?

I suspect it may be a mistake. Though they did go ex of the interim div around this time last year.

Thanks for that, was just looking at that news and potential sell off here. But their holdings from the last RNS was less than 3% (think it was in 2021) and they are not listed as major shareholders from various sources I've looked at.From their interim results the value of the VLX stock was £3.31m as at end August. Looking at the share price on that day the median was about 323p, so a mk cap of circa £492m, thus their holding represents about 0.7%, so not particularly something to lose sleep over??.

Great find! Share price weak due to cyber attack news? Events in Middle East, or both?Personally think cyber news has meant oversold here. Always seems to be something causing a drag on share prices currently!

ali - VLX share price went up on no news... and when there was some good news, it did nothing (went down a bit).

Sooooooo, it seems some people knew the good news beforehand and bought. Then, when the good news was actually released (yesterday), the folk who knew already, sold and made some quick money.

That's the reasoning...

For me, I'm just pleased my biggest holding is totally on the right track.

Good spot. There’s a lot of guff about ignoring past performance etc in the share price

It then says

Revenue is expected to rise by 16pc year-on-year, while underlying operating profit is set to be about 17pc higher. A 0.2 percentage point increase in the company’s underlying operating profit margin to 9.3pc highlights its capacity to successfully manage costs during an era of rampant inflation.

This highlights its strong competitive position, which could prove beneficial over the coming months should inflation prove to be somewhat sticky.

Net debt is due to have fallen by $22m (£17.4m) in the second half of the financial year so that it stands at about $76m at year-end.

The company appears to be in a sound financial position to make further acquisitions following four purchases in the previous financial year. It is also well placed to ramp-up investment in the structural growth markets in which it operates, notably electric vehicles, to expand its range of operations.

Volex key facts
Trading on a price-to-earnings ratio of 12.9, Volex remains attractively priced given its long-term growth potential. Indeed, its share price includes a wide margin of safety that suggests its risk/reward opportunity is still highly favourable ahead of an improving outlook for the global economy.

While it is tempting to lock-in the stock’s large capital gain, this column believes it has further room to run. Therefore, Volex remains a worthwhile holding in our IHT portfolio.

Questor says: hold

How quickly after a strong trading update do we revert to discussing share price movements!

The trading update gave a good steer as to how the near term future for Volex is shaping up - the company is targeting markets with strong structural growth, the growth that the company is seeing is ahead of the underlying market (the company is gaining market share) and VLX is expanding its capabilities and widening its product offering thereby increasing wallet share with existing customers as well as attracting new ones.

My investment philosophy has been to concentrate on the business not the share price. Get the business right then the share price will sort itself out.

Sometimes it pays to keep the faith against the herd.
Back in Nov '22
Nat R
"We have built a strong, resilient business, aligned to key market sectors with long-term structural growth characteristics," said executive chairman Nat Rothschild.

"We have shown that we are capable of managing supply chain and inflationary pressures effectively, while simultaneously continuing to win new projects and expand opportunities with existing customers.

"We continue to report strong organic sales growth, building on the momentum generated last year whilst maintaining our margins within our target range and demonstrating our ability to effectively pass through inflationary-driven increases."

Rothschild noted that in June, the company set out an "ambitious" new five-year plan, to grow revenues to $1.2bn by the 2027 financial year.

It would appear that little has changed in the mood music.
The current measures of PE puts the share price on a more than modest rating, and down at the £2 level it was cheap by any measure.
For some reason the share price was trashed, and as Val commented nobody seemed to want it - except for those who kept the faith.
I would hope that the share price will now re-rate to consolidat at least at the £2.50/£2.60 area before kicking onwards and upwards.
The dividend yield is modest, but has shown consistent yoy growth with both the interim and final payments. There is no reason to suppose that this cannot continue, even if bolt-on additions are found the assist the ongoing organic growth that the company expects to achieve.

Market just not that interested in micro stories right now. The directional correlation of the VLX share price to the broad index has been particularly strong recently. Fine by me, happy to have added at 229.
