For me personally I have had a very satisfactory year albeit I…

Aukett Swanke – Value Trap or Bid Target? With news of the acquisition of Waterman (LON:WTM) by CTI Engineering (Japan) still fresh in investor’s minds; this being the latest in an exhaustive list of M&A activity in this sector over the last 10 years, I am being increasingly drawn to the potential value of AIM micro-tiddler Aukett Swanke (LON:AUK).

Morning Paul. You might like to cover solid HY numbers from Haynes Publishing (LON:HYNS) where digital revenue is now over 50% of Group revenue. It’s a very different business from 5 years ago and modestly priced given decent recurring revenue. Ongoing significant investment £9m/pa in digital and other content as they are now targeting further expansion of their professional (HaynesPro) product line. Looking good.

Morning Paul - you might like to cover Driver (LON:DRV) despite your dislike of professional services consultants. Solid results, lots of cash, turnaround fully complete and also held by Keith Ashworth-Lord (Buffettology). Thanks.

Morning Graham - another shout out for Games Workshop (LON:GAW) please. Looks like things are going very well (ahead of forecasts). A keen favourite of Keith Ashworth-Lord!

Jack Any update for us on this please? Thanks
