Morning all!

D4t4 Solutions ( £D4T4 ) – 278p – £109m – PER 21

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End March 2019 – Revenue circa £25m, Operating Profit to be slightly ahead, Net Cash at £11m – Even, at this stage, expects 2020 FY to be in-line.

Encouraging but still looks overvalued here to me, that may change with upgrades so I will keep an eye out for those.

Trifast ( Trifast (LON:TRI) ) – 215p – £262m – PER 14.5

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End March 2019 – Revenue growth across all regions, Underlying PBT ahead of management expectations.

This still looks overvalued to me, I remain on the sidelines until I see how much "ahead of" they actually are.

Happy Easter to all those who "celebrate", back on Tuesday...

As always, all comment most welcome!

Happy Easter Matylda, and Mr C.

I did notice that Topps Tiles (LON:TPT) (which I don't hold) announced an acquisition today, which initially seemed to look quite good value... until I saw the amount of debt being taken on; I half wonder if the target would have gone into administration without the takeover.

There's an in-line update from First Derivatives (LON:FDP) today... but this looks another frothy tech-share.

Well, I've held Trifast (LON:TRI) for over 10 years and I've never seen this before, so I'd suggest it is rather more to do with the change in the political climate around Brexit in the past month. It is sometimes easy to see the face of the devil in your tea leaves if you look hard enough. I do not think the price movement is the least bit suspicious although I realise BB's love a conspiracy theory!

All the best, Si
