Morning All!

Tarsus ( Tarsus (LON:TRS) ) – 334p – £377.8m – PER 18.5

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – In-line and the outlook for 2018 is positive “our portfolio is strong”.

Still looks OK (good Operating Margin and ROCE) but does have Net Debt of £84m (20%+ of Mkt Cap). I will remain Neutral for now.

Nanoco ( Nanoco (LON:NANO) ) – 27.5p – £78.6m – PER n/a

AGM Statement – If this is all they have to say at the AGM I wouldn’t bother turning up even for the free canapes and vino.

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – Doesn’t exactly look rosy. Warned some deals may not be closed in December and they’re STILL working on closing them.

Fundamentals here still don’t look too bad but I still reckon there’s problems here.

Quartix Holdings ( Quartix Holdings (LON:QTX) ) – 359p – £170.8m – PER 26.8
