Morning all!

A bit late due to a sh8tty cold hitting me - Back to bed time!!!!

Begbies Traynor ( Begbies Traynor (LON:BEG) ) – 60p – £67m – PER 12

Q3 Trading Update – In-line and on track to deliver FY expectations as a whole.

Looks like value here based on the Stockopedia forecasts – Just puts me off that they may just be doing well due to quite a lot of work recently. On the other hand this could actually increase if the environment continues to deterioriate.

DX Group ( DX (Group) (LON:DX.) ) – 10.25p – £58.8m – PER 23.1

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End December 2018 – H1 in-line with management expectations, confident of achieving FY targets.

Looks decent enough but I would prefer to wait and see the FY, to see if there's an actual return to profitability – I'm not quite convinced!

GetBusy ( GetBusy (LON:GETB) ) – 32.5p – £15.7m – PER n/a

Results For The 12 Months To End December 2018 – Revenue up 19% (recurring up from 86% to 87%), Loss down from -£2.11m to -£1.2m. Expecting further growth in 2019.

Still a share I remain Long in (a really stuipid purchase). Was unable to sell out here at a decent price in an illiquid market, still paying the price (as it was at a better price than today)!

Huntsworth ( Huntsworth (LON:HNT) ) – 96p – £335m – PER 11.8

Preliminary Results For The 12 Months To End December 2018 – Revenue up 14% (1.4% LFL), PBT up 15% (ahead of expectations), EPS up 24% and the FY Dividend is up 15%.

I sold out here a while ago as the Interim Results seemed a little cautious. I may well revisit as these results look pretty good – Will keep an eye out for updated Broker notes.

MPAC ( MPAC (LON:MPAC) ) – 135p – £27.2m – PER 12.1

Results For The 12 Months To End December 2018 – Revenue up 9%, Underlying PBT and EPS up 15% or so, but a Statutory…

My morning smallcap tweet: WHI wails woeful warning

Bilby (LON:BILB), WH Ireland (LON:WHI), Batm Advanced Communications (LON:BVC)

Bilby (BILB) guides FY EBITDA only £2-3m before non-underlying restructuring costs and losses associated with the termination of the contract for MoD properties. Blames delays to a major gas installation contract.
W.H. Ireland Group (WHI) placing and warning. £5m placing at 45p (30% discount) to boost regulatory capital. Guides H2 op losses substantially higher than H1. Also exceptional costs, some of which are the result of the ongoing transformation strategy. SP year ago 145.
BATM Advanced Communications (BVC) wins first international customer for agri-waste treatment solution. Worth $1.5m and is expected to be delivered in 2019.

Huntsworth (LON:HNT)

Results seemed fine, board change gone ahead as previously announced - Not showing up on Short Tracker.

No idea here.

(Actually looks very good value based on Stocko forecasts)
