I Read The News Today Oh Boy! 21-Sep-2018

Morning all!

Tungsten ( Tungsten (LON:TUNG) ) – 51.8p – £65.3m – PER n/a

AGM Statement / Trading Update – Seems in-line (ish), on track to make a smaller loss.

No more interested today than I was yesterday.

Applegreen ( Applegreen (LON:APGN) ) – 538p – £495.2m – PER 20.3

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2018 – Revenue up 27%, Adjusted PBT is flat, Adjusted EPS is down -12.6%, the Interim Dividend is up 5%. Confident of prospects for 2018.

Still quite a lot to like here but seems to be a problem increasing EPS anywhere in-line with increased Revenue – I remain Neutral for now.

As always, all comment most welcome!

I held Applegreen (LON:APGN) for a while, but sold at around 530ish after the previous update when it warned on weather and oil prices making trading conditions more challenging. These results confirm that I am happier not holding them, I feel that the huge rise in costs is far outstripping the benefits of one acquisition after another.
