Solid results. by pharmaspecialist

  Thu, 02 Mar 2017 09:26:00 GMT
Solid results as usual, and expressed in a way that investors can understand. I also like the balance sheet. Not sure if Unilever is a client of Leatherhead, but if so, that is another reason I am glad the acquisition by Kraft did not go ahead. It looks as though Science is setting itself up for another acquisition.

I am not aware of any news, but perhaps some people will now be aware of what the impending results say.

Nothing obvious, but results due in a couple of weeks.

I'm expecting a good set of results based on $ earnings and US expansion ...

Glad you got in Jacko. I will hold for a bit longer. Fair chunk of earnings are in dollars, so this could help. There have also been a lot of buybacks lately. Good luck.

Toppish price by Another Jacko

  Sun, 14 Aug 2016 13:57:00 GMT
I've had another look at these today and decided to sell my small holding for a decent profit. Personally I think the price has got a bit ahead of performance although this remains a very good little company IMO.

I'll look to buy back in if the price falls to nearer £1 again.

News confirms hope in previous posts. by pharmaspecialist

  Fri, 20 May 2016 10:11:00 GMT
Very pleased to hear the following comment in the trading update:

"Leatherhead (food & beverage) outperforming the Board's expectations in terms of profit contribution"

Sorry to repeat this again, but I am ever more convinced that the purchase of Leatherhead is going to prove to be a real bargain and will have a material impact on the company's future, but is not yet reflected in the share price.

Re: Interesting? by Roger Baron

  Wed, 11 May 2016 11:36:00 GMT
Agreed, but according to my chart price already at year low.
Quite relaxed as in for long term at 86p and will be tempted to top up if it drops further.
A few respected fund managers are holding and, for what it is worth, Westhouse and Numis both target 177p.
Actually div not due until 10th June. It goes ex div next Thursday so expect a further price drop then.

Interesting? by Blanketstacker

  Wed, 11 May 2016 08:53:00 GMT
This company provides various scientific research services, in particular testing and product development including in the trendy food analysis area. It also owns the freehold of Harston Mill in Cambridge, and rents out business accomodation there. There is also property in Epsom.

PER = 13
PEG = 0.94
Yield = 3% (due later this month)
We are approaching the annual low.
There is no debt.

Annual results in March showed static cashflow, and a small fall in operating profit but revenue up 10%.

Recent increase in holding by Hargreave Hale and Ruffer (for clients).

There have been a series of small recent acquisitions, each profitable and quickly integrated.

The Chariman is Martyn Ratcliffe, formerly of MCGN. He seems to be establishing a common pattern of shrewd management and growth by very selective acquisition. His record there suggests he is against shareholder dilutiuion and in favour of a steady yield.

This could be a slow burner, with decent dividends along the way.

Any opinions please?

AGM by DarwenLad

  Sat, 23 Apr 2016 11:55:00 GMT
SAG has fixed its AGM for 9.0am on May 19th at the offices of Numis, its broker, in the City of London. This may be a great company, but judging by the unhelpful timing of the AGM, and my brief dealings with the company secretary, this does not appear to be a company that goes out of its way to encourage private shareholders to attend its AGM. A pity.

Re: NEW ARTICLE: Six great-value companies ... by pharmaspecialist

  Thu, 03 Mar 2016 11:22:00 GMT
I would certainly agree with your analysis Richard. I already own most of these companies (though not Goodwin or Dewhurst). I think investors would do well to note today's (3rd March) press release from Science which says "the potential synergies of the Leatherhead operations with Oakland and Sagentia have become increasingly apparent and the Group's existing offerings to the food & beverage market have been significantly enhanced by this acquisition." This is a very good sign, particularly as the company is often quite conservative in its statements. I reckon the money paid to buy Leatherhead under pressure of adminstration will prove to be a real bargain.
