I used to work professionally on more technical trading. Now as a hobby and investment - looking at mostly UK small caps. So now strictly an amateur.

I have not looked at Medica (LON:MGP) before. My concern would be political risk - NHS outsourcing.

Trident I am surprised more companies do not provide total tax transparency. The only one I have seen do it is Bonmarche Holdings (LON:BON) (see p31 of 2018 annual) which with £8m of PBT paid £17.7m in tax - of which only £1.6m was corporation tax - the 4th largest tax item. The top 3 being: business rates, import duties and employer NICs. Bonmarche also…
