Morning all!

Discoverie ( Discoverie (LON:DSCV) ) – 416p – £300m – PER 14.3

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End March 2019 – FY to be in-line.

I see forecast single digit growth for next year and there's a fair amount of Net Debt here – Enough to keep me away for now.

Flowtech Fluidpower ( Flowtech Fluidpower (LON:FLO) ) – 122p – £73m – PER 7.4

Results For The 12 Months To End December 2018 – Revenue up 42%, Underlying PBT in-line with market expectations (up from £8.68m to £10.68m) with EPS down from 9.69p to 8.34p. The Dividend is up 5% and Net Debt is up from £14.9m to £19.9m.

An ex-holding of mine and not yet tempted to get back in – Will however be interested to see those 2019E and 2020E estimates following this update.

Telit Communications ( Telit Communications (LON:TCM) ) – 170p – £215m – PER n/a

Results For The 12 Months To End December 2018 – Revenue up 14%, LBT down from -$56.8m to $39.8m, Net Debt up from $30.2m to $34m.

Remains on my Avoid list until I see a Profit coming through.

My morning smallcap tweet:

CAP XX (LON:CPX), Batm Advanced Communications (LON:BVC)

CAP-XX (CPX) trading: sounds mostly in line but "some softening in demand from manufacturers of Wearable Technologies" and "sales to Spire have not been followed up with new orders, as Spire has been impacted by trade tariffs into the US".
BATM Advanced Communications (BVC) wins initial $2m military contract for cyber security and networking.

JD Sports Fashion (LON:JD.) reporting a huge increase in turnover to £4718m+49.2% (boosted by the US Finish Line acquisition) and a rather more modest EBITDA £488m+27% and profit before tax 340m+15.4%... oh, and a laughable dividend of 1.71p+5%!!! EPS is up only 13%... which all suggests to me that growth is being bought at the expense of underlying growth per share. This is a share I won't chase...
