I Read The News Today Oh Boy! 19-Feb-2019

Tuesday, Feb 19 2019 by

Morning all!

(As a note I have finally got round to doing my February 2019 update, it's late as I wanted to include my analysis approach for my 1 purchase - You can view the update and approach here)

Blancco Technology ( Blancco Technology (LON:BLTG) ) – 87.5p – £57m – PER 22

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End December 2018 – Revenue up 19%, Adjusted Operating Profit up from £0.6m (restated) to £1.6m, confident of meeting FY expectations.

The latest Broker note I can reference is from Edison and it forecasts negative EPS growth – So if this is the expectation, it's not for me at present.

DotDigital ( dotDigital (LON:DOTD) ) – 86p – £256m – PER 21

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End December 2018 – Revenue up 33% (organic 15%), EBITDA up 25% and Cash is up 59% (to £16.7m) – Remains confident of meeting FY expectations.

I still reckon this is fairly priced around this level.

Future ( Future (LON:FUTR) ) – 570p – £467m – PER 20

Trading Update – H1 to be significantly ahead of Boards expectations, also expecting FY to be significantly ahead of market expectations.

I reckon this is fairly priced around these levels but will be keen to see any updated Broker notes after this upbeat statement.

Walker Greenback ( Walker Greenbank (LON:WGB) ) – 86p – £61m – PER 7.8

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End January 2019 – Expected to be in-line with management's expectations with Revenue up 1.1% to £113.3m. Expects core market this year to be challenging and uncertain, looking at cost saving initiatives.

I can’t get excited here.

My morning smallcap tweet:

Pelatro (LON:PTRO), JPJ (LON:JPJ), Walker Greenbank (LON:WGB), Manolete Partners (LON:MANO), Seeing Machines (LON:SEE)

Pelatro (PTRO) wins Vietnam contract worth $1.5m over 3 years.
JPJ Group (JPJ) sells Mandalay to 888 for £18m. Mandalay's rev was £11m, pretax ~£3.7m. Looks cheap. Leaves Jackpotjoy or Hauptgewinnefreude if you are German.
Walker Greenbank (WGB) guides FY in line but sounds gloomy over this FY. "Our core market in the UK remains both challenging and uncertain...licensing income in the current financial year is anticipated to be closer to historic levels."
Manolete Partners (MANO) guides FY op profit up 70%, ahead of market expectations.
Seeing Machines (SEE) Driver Monitoring System win with US car mfr. Mass production late 2020, estimated lifetime revenue ~A$6m for the initially planned car models. Hopes for more.
