Morning all!

Volution ( Volution (LON:FAN) ) – 180p – £358.0m – PER 11.3

Preliminary Results For The 12 Months To End July 2018 – Revenue up 11.1%, Reported PBT down from £17.9m to £16.7m (margins and exceptional costs blamed amongst other things). The Dividend is up 7% reflecting continued strength in the business (that’s no longer the responsibility of the PBT and EPS figures now then!).

Not enough here to change my view from Neutral.

N Brown ( N Brown (LON:BWNG) ) – 138.5p – £394.0m – PER 5.95

H1 Results – 26 Weeks To 1st September 2018 – Growth in financial services but not in products – FY expectations unchanged.

First coverage for me here for some reason. Looks perhaps reasonably valued on a PER basis but throw in the 10% yield and if it can be maintained – Could be a great income play. It’s going on my Watchlist for that reason.

Subsequent note: In my morning haste I missed this - Interim dividend reduced by 50.0% to 2.83p - Rebased dividend to a more sustainable level from which the Group will seek to grow - Removed from the Watchlist back to Neutral.

Discoverie ( Discoverie (LON:DSCV) ) – 398p – £292.0m – PER 15.0

Trading Update For The 6 Months To End September 2018 – On track to deliver on FY expectations.

Enough to like here but still not enough to change my Neutral stance.

Alpha Financial Markets Consulting ( Alpha Financial Markets Consulting (LON:AFM) ) – 224.5p – £227.8m – PER 18.2

Trading Update For The 6 Months To End September 2018 – Comfortable with current FY expectations.

There’s perhaps some value here at this level but not quite enough to tempt me just yet – Neutral for now.

Marshall Motor Holdings ( Marshall Motor Holdings (LON:MMH) ) – 140p – £109.0m – PER 5.75

Trading Update – In-line with previously revised forecasts.

Looks like decent value with a decent yield backed up by what seems like sound management…
