Good morning, it's Paul & Jack here with the SCVR for Friday.

Timing - TBC

Disclaimer -

A friendly reminder that we don’t recommend any stocks. We aim to cover notable trading updates & results of the day and offer our opinions on them as possible candidates for further research if they pique your interest. We tend to stick to companies that have news out on the day, and market caps up to about £700m.

A central assumption is that readers then DYOR (do your own research) and discuss in the comments below. The comments, incidentally, sometimes add just as much value as the articles. We welcome all rational views, whether bull or bear!

It's helpful if you include the company name or ticker within reader comments, otherwise some readers may not be aware of what company you are commenting on.

Paul’s Section

Cambridge Cognition Holdings (LON:COG)

(I hold)

165p (y’day’s closing price) - mkt cap £51m

Contract win

Another one! Something significant seems to be going on here. In the past COG seemed a serial disappointer, but the more commercially focused strategy under newish CEO Matthew Stork, is clearly working.

2021 forecast revenues are already in the bag, with signed contracts, so any additional contract wins are icing on this delicious cake. High margins too, so operationally-geared cake.

I hope some readers are enjoying this cake as much as I am, but it’s terribly illiquid, so it can be…
