Morning, I'm back in after a long time out of VLX, I like the recovery story and Directors holdings and buying. Potential for MA imo, a good fit for TT Electronics. GLA.

Telegraph Questor - 2 shares for Inheritance Tax portfolio od AIM shares Volex Volex makes power cords and cable assemblies for use in electronics and electrical devices. The business goes back 120 years and this perhaps accounts for some of its past problems: it operated in commodity-type markets at a time when low-cost competition from automated Chinese rivals put profit margins under pressure. Management and strategic changes were tried but all “failed to capitalise on the firm’s competitive strengths”, said Nick Hawthorn of Downing, whose firm holds Volex in its IHT portfolio. “Investors lost heart and its market value fell significantly,”; he added. New managers are now in place. “Where previous teams invested in chasing low-quality revenue and earnings growth, the new one focuses on operational and supply chain excellence and profitable growth,” Hawthorn said. Volex now plays to its strengths in areas such as cable assemblies for use in data centres and healthcare, where the work is labour intensive and quality is critical. “It is focusing on the opportunities against which Chinese automation can compete least effectively,” the fund manager added. He also pointed to the alignment of interests between the new managers and investors: the former own more than 25pc of the equity – shares they have paid for, not acquired via options. Hawthorn said Volex had market-leading attributes in global sourcing and production, significant investment in capital assets, a skilled and global workforce, blue-chip customers and a long-standing reputation for quality. “We believe these qualities create an economic ‘moat’ and a position of strength in the highly fragmented industry in which it operates,” he said. The shares trade at about 10 times forecast earnings – low for a stock whose organic growth is expected to be about 10pc a year. “We think Volex has now turned a corner, posting its first statutory profit since 2012,” Hawthorn said. “The turnaround has been well executed and there are great opportunities to profitably grow the business. This has yet to be reflected in the share price. We think Volex is one of the most attractive opportunities at the smaller end of the Aim market.” Questor says: buy Ticker: VLX Share price at close: 82.6p

It's a Shaughnessy 'Cornerstone Growth' stock on Stockopedia. "Marrying good value characteristics with price momentum is an excellent way to find 'cheap stocks on the mend'. As to the chart, maybe, this time it's different. Or third time lucky... Certainly there has been some director buying.

I like this chart. Once it clears congestion and stays above 90p it should climb towards 165 area.

They do say patience is a virtue - which I don't have... Maybe this time we can break through the mid-80s electric force field (now that I have sold some in the 70s, and can be made to feel bad about it...) Wonder what the three 1.6m trades were about at 75 - the recent rights issue price. Should be an RNS about the ownership change on its way.

Nice to see some new director buys. Bodes well. Everything looking good for the future. That last RNS only gives more confidence to hold.

Wow, I'm break-even on my first purchase at last (June 2014). 25% up overall as I tripled up at the end of 2015, shame I did not wait a month or two and get those shares for 1/3 less. It's been a rocky ride on this one, it all looks much steadier now, let's hope it is.

Pretty disappointing after yesterday's fireworks. Possible that this is isn't helping (although fairly irrelevant): https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2018/06/08/reports-apple-has-cut-iphone-orders-sinks-british-supplier-share/ Anyway, 3 year weekly chart - pull back was probably inevitable and for the long term good: free stock charts from uk.advfn.com

So everthing passed - new number of shares just about 140 million. Second announcement notes that the CEO just stumped up for 11.65m shares at 75p, as per prospectus (or whatever), maintaning his 25% shareholding overall. Just the odd £8.7 million found down the back of the sofa by Nat. Quite a cash commitment, on top of his previous (higher and lower priced) subscriptions. Whither now?

Indeed - if you want to keep the same percentage overall, just go and buy them in the market, for more or less the same price. Interesting valuation (maybe) - 18.1m Euros (structured) for 17.8m revenue (31.12.16 - what about 31.12.17?) But broadly 1 x income. Volex as a whole at 1 x income would make a nice valuation. Sigh...

Placings without an offer to existing shareholders are always bad news with only one exception. If the placing price is close to or above the share price it is positive news. There is no point in offering shares to existing shareholders if the gain for them is small, the extra cost is just not worthwhile. So, I am more than happy with the placing which will underpin the current 75p recovered price. Let's hope the acquisition is a good one.

....and another with placing at full price tho they should have offered us retail some at a decent premium IMHO as we are loyal and long suffering!
