I Read The News Today Oh Boy! 10-Sep-2019

Morning all!

Arena Events ( £ARE ) – 28p – £43m – PER 7

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – Satisfactory H1, H2 weighting and year end changed to March.

I don’t really like anything in this update and am finally going to cease coverage here.

Anexo ( £ANX ) – 192p – £211m – PER 11

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – Strong H1 growth and confident in meeting current market expectations for the FY.

Still looks quite reasonable but do not particularly like (fully understand) the nature of the business – So, it’s not for me. Actually I will now cease coverage.

Boku Inc ( £BOKU ) – 102p – £255m – PER 115

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – Good H2 required and perhaps expected.

I am Long here and, subject to market reaction, this update will not give me reason to change that at present. I would of course have preferred not to have a H2 weighting.

Concurrent Technologies ( £CNC ) – 63p – £46m – PER 10

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – Strong H1 with record Order Book, guides that it expects to deliver a successful performance for the FY.

I still see this as priced about right and would like to have seen an against expectations statement here rather than a “successful performance”.

EKF Diagnostics ( £EKF ) – 31p – £141m – PER 22

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – Earnings ahead of management expectations, Q3 trading in-line.

Looks like a good update but forecasts here reflect all round single digit growth this year and next so although ROCE and Operating Margin are great – Doesn’t seem like much value to me at this level.

Midwich ( £MIDW ) – 500p – £400m – PER 16

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – Strong H1 gives the board confidence but does not guide on FY.

Still not interested but 480p could perhaps be a bottom here.

Team17 ( £TM17 ) – 302p – £396m – PER 32

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – Revenue up 97%, Adjusted EBITDA up 145% and EPS up 356%, Cash at £35.8m (£16.7m). Comfortable…

I have topped up (again) on TP (LON:TPG) after the latest results, I think it is only a matter of time before there is a serious re-rating.

I hold Midwich (LON:MIDW) and I do not consider that these are "strong" results - revenue may show a good increase, but profit uplift looks rather poor.

I no longer hold SimplyBiz (LON:SBIZ) and I feel that the low increase in eps shows how dilutive their huge acquisition was.

I would be weary of investing in Concurrent Technologies (LON:CNC) when they consider H2 may not be as good as H1.

I used to hold EKF Diagnostics Holdings (LON:EKF) but would be anxious to do so now with such mediocre growth.

Thanks Andrea, nice to see some director buying at £SBIZ at least. £EKF rating is crazy to me but, hey, each to their own.

I have sold Midwich (LON:MIDW) after seeing the price tick down a bit.

I have exercised the curse of death on Boku Inc (LON:BOKU) and finally bought a baby-sized portion this morning after these results. To me they look extremely good, and I like the way that the payments side is part-funding the identity side. The director speak is extremely confident without being too frothy. So, as I am about to hit the 'submit' button on this comment, I am very high to see the price has suddenly jumped! There is a lot of strong buying this morning, including at 100p a 500k trade and 2 * 250k trades... which leads me to perhaps add a new criteria to my stock trading, as I am not that successful - if unsure, follow the big trades.
