I Read The News Today Oh Boy! 27-Jun-2019

Thursday, Jun 27 2019 by

Morning all!

Anpario ( Anpario (LON:ANP) ) – 337p – £79m – PER 18

AGM Statement – Challenges but margins improved and expects FY to be in-line.

I see no value here at all at present.

Liontrust Asset Management ( Liontrust Asset Management (LON:LIO) ) – 718p – £364m – PER 14

Results For The 12 Months To End March 2019 – Revenue, Adjusted PBT and EPS both up 10% - Consistent!  The Total Dividend is up 29%.

Looks quite good but just too dependent on in-flows into AUM, just like all Asset Management companies.

James Latham ( James Latham (LON:LTHM) ) – 835p – £164m – PER 13.2

Results For The 12 Months To End March 2019 – Revenue up 9.4%, PBT flat (£15.3m), EPS up 6.4% and the Dividend is up just under 10%.

Still seems steady enough here but can't see any kicker for getting past the pedestrian growth here.

Manolete Partners ( Manolete Partners (LON:MANO) ) – 527p – £229m – PER 31.4

Maiden Results For The 12 Months To End March 2019 – Ahead of expectations, Revenue up 30% (from £10.6m to £13.8m), PBT up 85% (pre IPO costs), Maiden Dividend 1.49p, Investment cases up 72%, Cash at £9.7m.

First coverage here, looks good – Will be looking into this in more detail.

Scientific Digital Imaging ( Scientific Digital Imaging (LON:SDI) ) – 54p – £52m – PER 16.2

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End April 2019 – Expects Revenue of £17.4m, PBT no less than £2m, Net Debt £1.6m.

I am Long here and this looks quite good.

Wincanton ( Wincanton (LON:WIN) ) – 267p – £333m – PER 7.7

AGM Statement – In-line.

Perhaps attractive for the yield but not so sure about there being much potential for meaningful growth – Probably reflected in the rating. 

As always, all comment most welcome!

My morning smallcap tweet:

Scientific Digital Imaging (LON:SDI), Staffline (LON:STAF), Leaf Clean Energy Co (LON:LEAF)

Scientific Digital Imaging (SDI) hikes FY guidance: rev £17.4m, adj pretax (before amortisation of acquired intangibles, share based payments and acquisition and reorganisation costs) at least £2.9m. F/C £16.6m, £2.5m.
Staffline (STAF) £41m placing and open offer at 100p, a 33% discount. STAF was 1200p only 6 months ago. I hold.
Leaf Clean Energy (LEAF) Invenergy have threatened to appeal. It has until July 15 to do so, so no payout until after then. I hold.

I suppose I'm wishing I hadn't top-sliced Scientific Digital Imaging (LON:SDI) at 58.1p.... though I could buy them back now and make a profit if the sell price even just got back up to 58 again; I'm watching it.....

I hold Liontrust Asset Management (LON:LIO) but will probably sell when they peak, as I am wary of the general outlook of the markets with Brexit, US/China, etc. Also, there are a number of their funds in the 3rd or 4th quartiles at the mo.

I'm not convinced by Manolete Partners (LON:MANO) (as per my comment on the SCVR page), the revenue/profit is hugely boosted by unrealised gains and I wonder if these are guaranteed and who is doing the valuing. Also, the completed cases for the year reported on are WELL down on previous years!

Gresham House Strategic (LON:GHS) announce finals to March, with a 13% out-performance of the smallcap index and a total return of 20%; NAV is currently 1335 vs share price of 1175p. I hold.... on the basis that I'm too risk-averse to invest in some of the individual parts, such as Augean (LON:AUG) for example :-o
