Morning All!

Castings ( Castings (LON:CGS) ) – 450.5p – £196.6m – PER 14.1

Trading Update – Performance In-line but after exiting some unsuitable projects Profit for the year is expected to be £12.5m - £13.5m (could have told us what it was before, why oh why don’t they?).

Looking at the figures on Stockopedia I am guessing something like £14.5m Profit was expected so this is a miss of about 10%. Some or all of this may already be in the current price (as it was flagged up late last year). I am as unattracted to this as much now as I was yesterday.

Footasylum ( Footasylum (LON:FOOT) ) – 253p – £264.3m – PER 44.1

Trading Update - Strong growth. Revenues of £89.8m (up 33.4%) for the 18 weeks to end December 2017. Revenues of £173.0m (up 34.7%) for the 44 weeks to end December 2017. Trading continues to be in-line with expectations.

Although the Revenue growth is impressive there’s no mention of Profit in this latest update. On a PER of 44.1 I would prefer to wait and see the actuals here. Can't even find a single broker note.

Trading Update For The 23 Weeks To 6-Jan-2018 - Group Gross Transaction Value for the peak trading period (classed as 1-Nov-2017 to 6-Jan-2018) is up 5.2% and for the 23 weeks to 6-Jan-2018 it’s up 3.8%. BELONG arenas, over 155,000 hours played, a utilisation level of 28.2% vs 21.3% in Q4 last year), new arena openings planned from February 2018 onwards (first 2 in Spain later in the year). Esports and Events - Insomnia 62 to be held over the Easter weekend, including the hosting of the Call of Duty ("COD") World League: Birmingham Open, part of the COD World League Global Circuit with a prize pool of US$200,000, and the largest esports event the Group has run to date. Cash of £67m, up from £43m.

I am already Long and sold half having doubled my initial investment. I will continue to hold the remainder.

Of course the main story of the day (for me anyway) is the growth at Boohoo (let's…
