Good morning, it's Paul here with the SCVR for Thursday.

Timing - I have to finish by about 2pm today. Update at 13:33 - sorry I'm completely bogged down in JOUL (I hold) results, so that (big!) section should be up by 2pm. Please bear with me.
Update at 14:35 - I spent absolutely ages on JOUL, so haven't got round to the other stuff, and have to go out now for an appointment. I'll catch up this evening, to go into tomorrow's report first thing. Apologies for any inconvenience. Hence, today's report is now finished.

Agenda - The first 3 companies I'll be looking at are all things that I either hold, or am considering buying, namely -

Pci- Pal (LON:PCIP) (I hold) - Trading update for 6m to 31 Dec 2020 - (done)

Joules (LON:JOUL) (I hold) - CFO leaving, and interim results 26 wks to 29 Nov 2020 - "Accelerating digital sales support delivery of profits ahead of expectations for the Period". At first glance this looks good. The key point is that Joules is more than recouping lost physical sales with online growth. That's very important, and not something I've seen with other similar companies. It mentions higher costs of export to the EU, something we've recently been discussing here. - (done)

De La Rue (LON:DLAR) - Trading Update - FY 03/2021 to date - guides ahead of expectations £36-37m adj op pr, vs £34m mkt exps) (to do)

Other things on my to do list, which I may or may not get round to covering, dependent on time, are these: BLV, ACSO, TRB, MMTO, Fonix, EMR - so please don't request them, as I'm already aware. Update - sorry these are going to have to wait until tomorrow.

As usual, I welcome readers giving your own opinions on companies reporting, in the comments, if backed up by facts & figures. Some of you know your companies inside-out, if so, do contribute your views here, it's a team sport after all.
