Morning all!

Dignity ( Dignity (LON:DTY) ) – 853p – £425.9m – PER 12.6

Results For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – Seems to be in-line (ish). Outlook statement does not sound particularly bullish except deaths are up 7% so far in 2018, expectation was no increase.

3 times cheaper than 6 months ago, in-line is not going to get me interested yet.

EKF Diagnostics ( EKF Diagnostics Holdings (LON:EKF) ) – 26.25p – £120.1m – PER 25.0

Results For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – Revenue up 8% to £41.6m (2016: £38.6m), Gross Profit up 25% to £22.9m (2016: £18.3m), EPS 0.59p (2016: nil), Net Cash of £7.0m (31 Dec 2016: £2.2m). 2018 in-line with managements expectations.

I just cannot work out if this looks good or if it’s just average. The spidey senses are not triggering buy signals so for now I will remain Neutral.

Empresaria ( Empresaria (LON:EMR) ) – 94.45p – £46.3m – PER 7.62

Results For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – The headline is “Record adjusted profit before tax and adjusted earnings per share”. Revenue is up 28% CC from £270.4m to £357.1m with Adjusted PBT up 14% to £11.0m versus £9.2m last time. It’s 6 consecutive years of double digit % growth in adjusted earnings per share and the Final Dividend is up by 15% to 1.32p (2016: 1.15p.

Quite like this with the main concerns probably being the Operating Margin and Net Debt. Enough to remain Neutral for now.

SafeCharge International ( SafeCharge International (LON:SCH) ) – 307.5p – £453.5m – PER 18.2

Results For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – Revenue up 7% to $111.7m ($104.1m last time) but Profits and EPS are down. The total annual Dividend will be just 3% up on last year.

I hold a long position here but have to say, I am not overly impressed with these results. Will keep an eye on the market reaction.

StatPro ( StatPro (LON:SOG) ) – 187p – £122.7m – PER 26.2
