Good morning! It's Paul & Jack here with the SCVR for Tuesday.

Agenda -

Paul's Section:

Angling Direct (LON:ANG) - cyber-security attack from yesterday's RNS. Looks quite serious, we're now into day 4 of ANG's transactional website being down. It was hacked, and customers have been redirected towards PornHub. Plenty of banter has ensued, but will it do lasting damage?

Sosandar (LON:SOS) - I recap on this very fast-growing womenswear fashion brand, after an excellent presentation last night at Mello. It's not cheap, but the growth is now stellar, and I reckon they're set up to beat forecasts this peak trading period, driven partly by strong third party sales. Looks an exciting growth company to me - measured by facts & figures, not just wishful thinking!

James Cropper (LON:CRPR) - interim results look OK, with a good recovery in revenues, and a modest increase in profits. Note the pension deficit. I can't see anything to get excited about in these numbers.

Jack's Section:

Alfa Financial Software Holdings (LON:ALFA) - strong momentum continues. This software provider is of increasing interest to the community and broker EPS forecasts have been upped multiple times recently. Shares look pricey but, with the wind in its sails, the group deserves some kind of premium.

Explanatory notes -

A quick reminder that we don’t recommend any stocks. We aim to review trading updates & results of the day and offer our opinions on them as possible candidates for further research if they interest you. Our opinions will sometimes turn out to be right, and sometimes wrong, because it's anybody's guess what direction market sentiment will take & nobody can predict the future with certainty. We are analysing the company fundamentals, not trying to predict market sentiment.

We stick to companies that have issued news on the day, with market caps up to about £700m. We avoid the smallest, and most speculative companies, and also avoid a few specialist sectors (e.g. natural resources, pharma/biotech).

A key assumption is that readers DYOR (do your own research), and make your own investment decisions. Reader comments are welcomed - please be civil, rational, and include the company name/ticker, otherwise people won't necessarily know what company you are referring to.
