XPP Power has been on a rocket ride in 2017, the share price rising 90% since the start of the year. I bought in April 2012 - a modest investment I wish had been larger (don't we usually?). This wasn't always the case; the share price effectively drifted sideways three years for 2014 - 2016.

A 90% rise in 10 months - what has changed? The biggest influence would appear to be "market sentiment".

Not enough for me - a forward P/E of 22 is asking a great deal. It's a business and a management I admire but too rich for my more value orientated taste.
