The company is well funded to make further acquisitions Since they forecast that XPP wil be in a nett cash position next year then I don't see any great need to make acquisitions. Yes, if a perfect take over target appears, but at a sensible price, always there is the worry that directors will pay too much, and if they have cash in the bank that is even more of a worry. (Maybe I worry too much haha)

Edison upgrades forecasts today: "Q118 trading: Revenues and bookings up strongly XP Power reported revenues of £46.6m in Q118, up 18% y-o-y, up 28% on a constant currency basis and up 17% on a like-for-like basis. Order intake of £51.2m was 9% higher y-o-y (+19% constant currency, +12% like-for-like) and 9% higher q-o-q. Book-to-bill remained strong at 1.1x. Net debt at quarter-end was £6.8m, down from £9.0m at end FY17. The company announced a 16p per share dividend for Q118, in line with our forecast. Upgrading forecasts Management’s expectations for full year performance remain unchanged. We have raised our forecasts to reflect the stronger than expected trading in Q1. We lift revenue forecasts by 5.8% for FY18 and FY19, based on constant currency revenue growth of 22% in FY18 (which includes the full year effect of Comdel) and 5% in FY19. This results in an increase in operating profit of 7.5% in FY18 and 7.4% in FY19 and normalised EPS of 7.7% in FY18 and 7.6% in FY19. We forecast that XP will move into a net cash position by the end of FY19, increasing our forecast from £4.1m to £6.2m. Valuation: Reflects consistently profitable growth On a P/E basis, XP is trading at a premium to global power converter companies and at a small discount to UK electronics companies, with a dividend yield at the top end of the range. XP generates EBITDA and EBIT margins at the top end of its peer group. We see scope for upgrades to earnings estimates from cross-selling and further market share gains in healthcare. The company is well funded to make further acquisitions, while maintaining its strong operating profitability."

I just ran a screen on Stockopedia for cos with a market cap grater than £10m and dividend growth streak greater than or equal to 5 years. There are 200 qualifying shares across LSE/AIM. Personally, I prefer to have additional quality criteria which of course, XPP passes with flying colours.

Losos - agreed - I originally bought XPP as part of a yield portfolio and it has been one of the best there. Another good one has been Amino(AMO) with 7 years of dividends and at least a 10% increase each time and 10% promised for the current year.

Johnroger - "How many companies have managed that!" I am constantly looking for consistent dividend growth investment opportunities. I heartily endorse your statement. The fact is that while you may find a fair number who have not CUT their dividend (RDSB would be one) there are hardly any with a year after year increase. I don't look at or include companies with less than five years existance.

"Our continued strong financial performance, strong cash flows and confidence in the Group's long-term prospects have enabled us to increase dividends consistently over a sustained period. The Board is recommending a final dividend of 29 pence per share for the fourth quarter of 2017. This dividend will be payable to members on the register on 16 March 2018 and will be paid on 20 April 2018. When combined with the interim dividends for the previous quarters, the total dividend for the year will be 78 pence per share (2016: 71 pence), an increase of 10%. The compound average growth rate of our dividend has been 15% over the last ten years, demonstrating the Board's commitment to our progressive dividend policy." How many companies have managed that!

XPP Operating Margin is 19.7%, DSCV is 3.42%. No contest IMO.

Thanks for the views on DSCV. It came up on a screen I ran last night and looked interesting.

agree re the name change - all the trading names are as they were so no idea why they wanted to ditch ACAL name

yep got some DSCV as well. Traded it in and out and recently just bought some back. XPP is just a buy and forget job really but don't expect any fireworks until/ if they say they are trading ahead or something. Nice divi in meantime

Silly name change from Acal but DSCV is on the same path as XPP - started as a distributor and then expanded back the chain to take over manufacturers with similarly good financial consequences.

Last two posts are spot on. Growth looking healthy. Let's see what happens to the share price over the next 3 months, rather than the last 3 hours.Slightly off topic but same industry. I'm having a look at DSCV. Anyone else on there too?

What's not to like? 23% return on capital, 27% increase in eps, 19% revenue organic revenue growth in constant currency terms (29% on a reported basis) with North America accounting for 57% of total sales. Benefit of Comdel acquisition to come in 2018 together with strong order book (up 31% in constant currency). Muted reaction and recent share price weakness suggests perhaps some concern about a possible imminent downturn in the capital equipment and semiconductor markets. If so I think that is misplaced but what do I know.

Everything working to plan and a good solid growth performance. A trailing P/E of 21 looks like under-valuation currently given growth over 30%.

I had hoped for a bigger jump back up this morning. Another good set of results from the XPP team and positive comment on current trading.

ADVFN current price is all over the place - it pays not to look at the percentage loss/gain. GLA for tomorrow....

yes and price has fallen back since report was out on day of RNS. Go figure that one. Still irrational markets is how one makes money I guess. Great stock to buy and tuck away imho. Quality mgt and all the investment in new products over the years with customers now coming in as customers launch all the products for sale using XPP components and are locked into them.

Recent Edison note Tax changes support EPS upside XP Power should see a two-fold benefit from the change in the US corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% from 2018. First, it is likely to report a non-cash credit relating to the £5.2m deferred tax liability as at the end of FY17. This will be excluded from any adjusted profitability measures. Second, it should reduce the group’s effective tax rate from FY18 onwards. In addition, the company expects to receive a £1.3m refund of tax paid in Singapore relating to FY15 and FY16 (also to be excluded from adjusted profits). Overall, XP expects the group effective tax rate to reduce to a range of 15-17% from FY18. We currently forecast an effective rate of 25.5% on FY18 normalised PBT. We leave our forecasts unchanged pending FY17 results on 1 March but highlight that a reduction to an effective rate of 17% in FY18 would increase our normalised diluted EPS forecast by c 11%.
