Morning all!

Hope you had a great Bank Holiday.

Costain ( Costain (LON:COST) ) – 476p – £505.2m – PER 12.7

AGM Statement – In-line.

Still quite like the look of this but I find it difficult to see where any real growth can come from at present. Would become more interesting if it pushes through all time highs to the 500p level.

Cambria Automobiles ( Cambria Automobiles (LON:CAMB) ) – 61p – £61.0m – PER 7.88

Unaudited Interim Results For The 6 Months To End February 2018 - In-line but doesn’t look like it – Here’s the spiel “Cambria will maintain its momentum in the second half and deliver a financial performance in line with market expectations for the year as a whole”.

Final Results For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – Revenue up 50% (to £43.4m) with EBITDA up just 10%. Operational review in progress which will include board changes, profitability in 2018 to be significantly lower than 2017.

Based on this update I find it hard to want to invest here at present.

Ideagen ( Ideagen (LON:IDEA) ) – 112.5p – £228.0m – PER 24.5

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End April 2018 – In-line, Revenue up 33% at approximately £36.1m, (FY2017: £27.1m) with a significant…
