Two steps forward one step back
10 Nov 16
PSI’s underwhelming financial performance and lower revenue guidance for FY16 reflect difficult trading conditions as well as retaining price discipline and moving away from lower-quality business lines. The transformation of the PSI’s model should advance in FY17 with the migration of key Production Management modules to its new software platform. We still see significant upside potential if PSI can execute its plan and expand margins well into double digits, although this may be at the expense of organic top-line growth in the near term.
Near- and longer-term prospects solidifying
20 Nov 15
PSI has delivered a solid recovery in order intake and margins in 2015 to date and management expects double-digit growth in orders and revenues into early 2016. While we are mindful of the economic risks and exposure to the cyclical investment cycle in Electrical Energy, our confidence that PSI can sustain its growth and margin expansion trend is improving.
ThyssenKrupp strategic partnership
06 Oct 15
We believe that PSI’s partnership with ThyssenKrupp provides one of the first visible commercial benefits of PSI’s initiative to consolidate its software platform. It does not prompt a change to our estimates but should provide long-term support to the company’s production management division, to complement the positive dynamics in energy management.
On track despite Asian uncertainty
03 Aug 15
PSI’s H1 update is generally encouraging with order intake up 17% y-o-y driven by strength in the German energy and automotive industries and mostly solid trading across Europe. Weakness in China and Asia offset this somewhat and reduce visibility, but we believe our estimates are adequately supported. Delivery on this year’s estimates should improve confidence in the longer-margin expansion strategy, which is key to unlocking significant upside potential.
The Slide Rule
12 Jan 17
What is The Slide Rule? The Slide Rule has been designed to dramatically simplify the identification of the best companies in the UK small/mid-cap sector by making a quantitative assessment of the relative potential of each company. At its core, The Slide Rule aims to identify those companies that create genuine shareholder value through strong returns on capital and solid growth, but also present a value opportunity with the potential tailwind of earnings momentum. Companies are assessed within a Quality, Value, Growth and Momentum (QVGM) framework.
N+1 Singer - Small-cap quantitative research - Momentum screen refresh + 10 focus stocks
12 Jan 17
We have refreshed our momentum style screen for the first time since inception on 26 July 2016. As before, the screen selects the 25 stocks exhibiting the most extreme momentum characteristics, according to our measurement method. From these we have selected 10 to focus on. Since inception the screen has underperformed both the main small-cap and micro-cap indices against a background of generally rising momentum. We have noted a subset of the basket, where decelerating momentum at the time of measurement appears correlated with significant share price falls since selection. We shall monitor this factor with the new screen, albeit there are only two such stocks showing this pattern, namely Lamprell (not rated) and Gear4music (not rated).
N+1 Singer - Morning Song 12-01-2017
12 Jan 17
As anticipated, the second half has again been stronger than H1 and results will be broadly in line with expectations. In line with this, the order book has continued to grow and is at record levels. This confirms that significant progress has been made in the Group’s shift towards its Technology Products division which, as targeted, contributed c.60% of group revenue in FY16. The small acquisition of Cable Power also gives a complementary boost to the product range. It is also worth noting the significant reduction in net debt, £1.0m ahead of our forecast. We remain supportive of the Group’s strategy and continue to see a bright future as this transition towards a design led technology solutions business continues. We look forward to more detail in March at the final results.

Mobile phones are increasingly the key connection for the modern world. This means that the performance of mobile phones, and their networks, is going to become more critical for all the apps and businesses that rely on them. New technologies such as VR, AR, and AV will need better, more reliable connections to really move into the mainstream. In this thematic piece we attempt to identify some of the most important issues facing mobile phone networks and their users, and start to identify solutions and enablers that will solve these problems and create value by doing so.

33% upgrade to January 2017 PBT
09 Jan 17
Redstone has released a trading update stating it ‘expects to report EBITDA at the upper end of market expectations’. This implies EBITDA of £1.8m which is above our current estimate of £1.5m. Accordingly, we are upgrading our PBT forecast for the year ending January 2017 by 33% to £1.2m from £0.9m. We reiterate our buy recommendation with a 2.2p price target implying 69% upside.
