"I was sat here worrying I might be doing something wrong." Not at all. But you did kick off this latest flurry of posts by saying "I'm slightly concerned by the share price performance". A "buy the dip" policy which is quite common, and I use when I have a decent stake, means less concern/worry when prices fall.

"Everyone will have their own style so don't worry if it doesn't mean much to you."Phew thanks for clarifying that. I was sat here worrying I might be doing something wrong.

"I don't get this 'buy on a dip' approach if you're an investor." Everyone will have their own style so don't worry if it doesn't mean much to you. XPP is looking and performing like a long term hold but when a share gets to 5% of my portfolio as is the case here then I tend to wait for the market to offer "sale" prices and take advantage. If that doesn't happen I am happy to stick with what I have got.

We report in Pounds Sterling (GBP) but have significant revenues and costs as well as assets and liabilities that are denominated in United States Dollars (USD). The table below sets out the prevailing exchange rates in the periods reported. First half First half 2016 % 30 June 2017 31 December 30 June 2016 2017 Change 2016 Average Average Period end Period end Period end USD/GBP 1.26 1.44 -12.5% 1.27 1.24 1.33 EUR/GBP 1.17 1.30 -10.0% 1.14 1.19 1.20 Approximately 81% of the Group’s revenues are invoiced in USD so the change in the USD to GBP exchange rate has a significant effect on reported revenue in GBP. However, as the majority of our cost of goods sold and operating expenses are also denominated in USD, the change in profit before tax with the USD to GBP exchange rate is relatively minor. The impact of changes in the key exchange rates from the first half of 2016 to the first half of 2017 are summarised as follows: £ Millions USD EUR Impact on revenues 8.1 0.7 Impact on profit before tax 1.5 0.1 Impact on net debt 0.3 - that was taken from the last set of results so yes it does have an effect but not that much

I don't get this 'buy on a dip' approach if you're an investor. If you think something is worth buying, and you have a long term view then buy it. Yeah it might drop a bit and you could have got in early. The other side to that is it doesn't dip and continues rising.

"Maybe there is a little bit of near-term over-valuation here too?" You clearly think there is over-valuation somewhere else (implied by "here too"), but why do you think that might be the case for XPP? In fact I have been frustrated the share price has not reduced much in the last couple of days as I have been looking to buy the dip.

How much does the rising pound against the dollar affect XPP? Maybe there is a little bit of near-term over-valuation here too?

Yeah agreed, I'm going nowhere just yet. Sideways is ok, but a down trend is not!

i just see it as a topping up opportunity as i did yesterday there was nothing wrong with the trading statement earlier in the month nothing goes up in a straight line a bit of sideways movement is always a good thing i think

I'm slightly concerned by the share price performance after establishing a new high earlier this month. The price has established a new lower low after dropping mid December.

Strong growth in orders bodes well for 2018. I particularly liked the 101% increase in orders at Comdel suggesting the acquisition was well planned.

"We enter 2018 with positive momentum and therefore expect to grow orders and revenue in 2018 above that in 2017."Not quite an upgrade but confirmation growth will accelerate this year. Nice divi too

martinthebrave - has slipped a bit more. You are right it was getting ahead of itself :-) I will top up soon, just feel this is one where a few top ups now and then will make a nice holding in my retirement.

Back in today. Sold early November believing that the share price had got a little ahead of itself. The dip has only been 5% or so and I don't want to be out of here for long. The October update was excellent and the Forward PE for 2018 is down to C:17x.

That Tempus article seems to have an identity crisis. It claims it's all about long term investment, then recommends you sell a global leader with only a £600m market cap that is upgrading estimates. Buy buy buy!!

Have to say after watching LRD double and then crash I have been much more stringent in the past year or two enforcing my own maximum holding rules. As a result I have been taking regular profits from XPP by top slicing although the first such benefit came from a decision to move my holdings into my ISA account. My current tax cost has more than doubled in value even allowing for the fact I take dividends in shares thanks to my brokers rules. With this months sales I have now withdrawn more than the current tax cost of my investment and XPP remains were I am comfortable at 3.5% of my portfolio but think how much morec I would have made if I hadn't top sliced. This looks like a long runner to me and Tempus sell advice not very strong given the current and on going investment in the future.

Tuesday's Tempus in The Times recommended take profits..... probably a buy signal for the market. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/business/playing-the-long-game-in-investment-j22n9f2wl

I've owned this for quite a while too, initiated as an "income" investment. Nice that it's coming good on the capital front. Not sure why it's a "Buffett Share", tho. If it were I wouldn't own it!

Perhaps it should be consolidated up to £200000 a share! Berkshire Hathaway still has a lot of buyers at that level and this company is basically a Buffet Share he doesn't own.
