I had a regular investment set up for today to buy a handful using the dividend. I guess I'll have to pay a little more for them. Oh well not a bad thing!

Edison Note Increasing EPS by 3.6% FY18 and 6.1% FY19. We forecast a net debt/EBITDA ratio of 0.8x at end FY18, well below the company’s 2.0x ceiling.

Sanford Glassman passed away as recently as 24 March 2018 so this has been a quick acquisition from his estate and his widow who was the major shareholder (unless of course negotiations had already started before he died). hTtp://obits.nj.com/obituaries/StarLedger/obituary.aspx?pid=188556756

They've paid £31.8m for a company with £6.8m in assets. So subtracting the assets from the total price paid means they've actually paid £25m for the business. Glassman made £2m in profit last year so they've paid a 12.5 multiple of that. I don't think that's too bad actually. Given the synergies in products, and the cost savings from the merger, I would expect that profit figure to increase.

Acquisition looks a good fit but I think they have paid too much to acquire it.

Sold today for an 11% profit based on the chart high. Will keep an eye and consider coming back in on a significant dip.

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.
