Good morning! It's Paul here with the SCVR for Tuesday. Jack's busy with other stuff, so it'll probably just be me today.

I added more sections to yesterday's SCVR, finishing in the early evening, so here is the link for the full report.

PIWorld interview with Richard Crow ("CockneyRebel"). I've long admired Richard Crow, who's a brilliant investor, and an engaging, down-to-earth chap. His life story is interesting, and this video is chock full of straightforward investment common sense. I enjoyed it very much over the weekend, so I hope you enjoy it too. Highly recommended. I only ever provide links here to the best content that I've particularly enjoyed.

Agenda - this is what has caught my eye this morning -

Accrol Group (LON:ACRL) - significant acquisition, and placing

Victoria (LON:VCP) - 2nd lockdown comments & trading update

Telit Communications (LON:TCM) - 2 possible bidders

Up Global Sourcing Holdings (LON:UPGS) - Full year results

Warehouse Reit (LON:WHR) - Half year results

Oxford Metrics (LON:OMG) - Trading statement
.

Timings - TBC - I've started early, so there should be plenty up by 1pm official finish time. Then a few more hours to finish off everything else later this afternoon.
Update at 12:46 - I'm taking a break for lunch now, and a haircut, as I'm starting to look like a yeti, and with lockdown 2.0 starting on Thursday, this is becoming an emergency! So I'll be back about 2pm to finish off the last 4 sections above. Hence likely overall finish time about 5pm hopefully. I like to dig into the detail properly, which takes time, so thank you for your indulgences.
Update at 17:24 - today's report is now finished.
