Morning all!

CMC Markets ( CMC Markets (LON:CMCX) ) – 118.6p – £342.8m – PER 9.97

Results For The 6 Months To End September 2018 – Income down -21%, PBT down -76% and EPS down -69% on an increase in trades (14%) and a reduction in active clients of 4% - Even Revenue per active client is down -22%.

Still too much uncertainty here and the fall in Revenue per active client is not encouraging at all – I’m still Neutral.

Hornby ( Hornby (LON:HRN) ) – 32.5p – £40.7m – PER n/a

Results For The 6 Months To End September 2018 – Revenue down from £17m to £13.8m, Statutory Loss Before Tax of -£3.2m (-£5.7m last time), Net Debt is £1.8m (£4.7m last time). Frugality and bonuses are the name of the game here now “a one-off 5% bonus (to all employees) given for getting to break even and c.15% of operating profit shared between (all) employees thereafter.”

I still don’t feel any more comfort here - I remain Neutral.
