Morning all!

GYG ( GYG (LON:GYG) ) – 106.89p – £49.9m – PER 9.05

Final Results For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – Revenue up 14.7% to €62.6m (FY161 €54.6m), Operating profit of €1.4m which includes €3.9m of exceptional items, mainly related to the IPO (FY16 operating profit of €1.9m), Net Debt reduced to €6.7m at 31 December 2017 (FY16: €10.4m). Total dividend of 3.2p, reflecting the 6 month period from IPO to the year end.

I just don’t know here – Looks decent value but I am just not sure with those “exceptional items”. I will remain Neutral for now.

IG Design ( IG Design (LON:IGR) ) – 432p – £276.0m – PER 18.5

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End March 2018 – In-line.

Still quite like this - It remains on my Watchlist, 380p (Sadly I missed a retracement to my Entry earlier in the month, perhaps I will need to revise this level now).

System1 ( SysGroup (LON:SYS)1 ) – 300p – £37.4m – PER 18.0

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End March 2018 – Can’t see any good news here.

No more interested here today than I was yesterday, I remain Neutral for now.

Telford Homes ( Telford Homes (LON:TEF) ) – 423.5p – £319.8m – PER 7.58

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End March 2018 – Expects to report record levels of Revenue and PBT (up by more than 30% and slightly ahead of market expectations - Assisted by an improvement in the gross and operating margins of approximately 3%).  Strong opportunity for further growth in the coming years.

Looks great value and quite tempting even if it’s just to have some exposure to a sector I am avoiding due to “uncertainty”. I have been expecting “blood on the streets” for some time in the housing and automobile sectors, perhaps wrongly! Will remain Neutral here for now.

Vianet ( Vianet (LON:VNET) ) – 139.6p – £39.5m – PER 15.0

Trading Update For The 12 Months To…

The announcement from Dignity (LON:DTY) provides zero excitement for me - I can't summon up any enthusiasm for a company who considers a flat EBIT and very moderate revenue increase "a performance significantly above management expectations", as well as saying "...the anticipated mix of simple funerals as a percentage of total funerals has continued at levels lower than the Board's initial forecast." It all sounds very dull...

...and I find the thought of investing in a funeral company quite depressing anyway.

Thanks all - Title now corrected.

The market seems to like Dignity (LON:DTY), I am not overwhelmed at all, perhaps the market was expecting worse or perhaps a war :(

I hold Telford Homes (LON:TEF) and have for a while. I think it operates in a sweet spot - properties young professionals can afford which also appeal to overseas investors who want a bolt hole in London. Hence they haven't been hit by the downturn at the very high end of the market. They are also able to forward sell sometimes two years ahead, taking a 10% deposit upfront which de-risks them significantly. Their statement confirmed the growth that was expected last year but nothing substantive on outlook which is disappointing given that they have set very clear guidance previously. Maybe they will give more detail in their results (due out in May) but this was a frustrating statement.
