Morning all!

A few PC issues this morning – What’s the issue with the Surface Pro 4 sometimes just refusing to ignore the 2 connected monitors even after many restarts! Anyway…

Debenhams ( Debenhams (LON:DEB) ) – 23.32p – £276.3m – PER 6.07

Interim Results For The 26 Weeks To 3 March 2018 – LFL Revenue down 2.2% (CC) and most other stuff down 50% or so, including the Dividend.

I said this last time and I still have the same feeling – I just have no idea where Debenhams will be in 5 (or even 2) years time – Will it be bust or soaring high once again? Or, still struggling along? I favour the struggling along or bust options – I am Avoiding for now.

Gattaca ( Gattaca (LON:GATC) ) – 193p – £57.7m – PER 5.19

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End January 2018 – Growth but not much of it, Dividend cut 50%. February and March broadly in-line but (Ouch!) expects FY PBT to be about 15% below previous expectations.

I remain Neutral for now.

Idox ( Idox (LON:IDOX) ) – 30.45p – £127.4m – PER 8.33

Trading Update For The 5 Months To End April 2018 – H1 expected to be well below the same period last year but confident of FY in-line with expectations – Yeah right!

I will not be getting involved here at present.

Science ( Science (LON:SAG) ) – 204p – £81.6m – PER 13.6

Business Update – 2018 Q1 Revenue and Profits ahead of the Board’s expectations. Buy Back program, up to £100,000 per calendar month capped at £1m annually.

Quite like this but just not yet tempted enough, will keep an eye out for updates.

Trifast ( Trifast (LON:TRI) ) – 269p – £326.5m – PER 19.6

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End March 2018 – Underlying PBT to be slightly ahead of managements expectations. Order pipeline encouraging, enters the new year in a confident mood.

A great 5 year return here for investors…
