Morning all!

Debenhams ( Debenhams (LON:DEB) ) – 8.5p – £104.6m – PER 3.4

Preliminary Results For The 52 Weeks To 1st September 2018 – Confirms previous figures (from 10th September).  Transformation strategy in progress.

Remains on my Avoid list, it’s a coin flip at best (in my opinion) whether this will work out or not.

Air Partner ( Air Partner (LON:AIR) ) – 106.5p – £55.6m – PER 11.5

Results For The 6 Months To End July 2018 – Underlying PBT flat at £4.2m (statutory down 30%) with Underlying EPS up 8.9%. Outlook “challenging” but “in-line”.

Alumasc ( Alumasc (LON:ALU) ) – 128.5p – £46.4m – PER 6.85

AGM Statement – A lower level of client activity (didn’t blame the weather but did blame poor investor sentiment and Brexit) has impacted Revenue but not EBITDA. Profit outlook is in-line.

I still quite like this and can see value here at last. I remain Neutral but will do a little more research this week (hopefully).

1pm ( 1pm (LON:OPM) ) – 47p – £41.0m – PER 6.15
