Morning all!

Dignity ( Dignity (LON:DTY) ) – 742p – £371m – PER 10.8

Results For The 12 Months To 28th December 2018 – Revenue down -3%, Underlying PBT down -30% and Underlying EPS fown -33%, the Dividend is flat. Competition and Markets Authority investigation into industry likely to commence this year.

I still don’t see any reason to be “bottom picking” here just yet.

EKF Diagnostic Holdings ( EKF Diagnostics Holdings (LON:EKF) ) – 32p – £145m – PER 23

Results For The 12 Months To End December 2018 – Revenue up 2%, PBT up 280% from £4.3m to £12.2m, Underlying EPS up almost 100% from 58p to 101p (correction 0.58p to 1.01p). Q1 of the new year in-line with management expectations.

Results For The 12 Months To End December 2018 – Revenue up 5%, Adjusted PBT up 18%, Adjusted Diluted EPS down -3%. The Final Dividend is up 52%, with Net Debt at £17m why not pay some of it off instead!
