N+1 Singer - Morning Song 20-10-2016
20 Oct 16
A highly disappointing update from Senior reports a number of issues adding up to the Group being behind expectations. Following the Flexonics issues over the past 12 months, there are now issues on the Aerospace side which are affecting the outlook. In a period when some stability was required, this is disappointing. We have downgraded FY16 EPS by 6.8% and, whilst we see Senior remaining a US takeover target, we move from Buy to Hold (target price down from 262p to 196p) until more clarity is available on the direction of the Group.
UK Housebuilding Sector: Q3 2016 - “I am Steve McQueen”
11 Oct 16
Steve was street savvy, but he was not the smartest knife in the drawer, which makes his Delphic comment to Robert Vaughn all the more surprising. What Steve was saying is that “it’s not over yet”; that there is still a lot more to come (sadly for McQueen, who died in 1980 aged 50, it was a future that was not his). The same is true of Brexit and the collateral undulations that it has riven in the UK Housebuilding Sector. Immediately post-the-Brexit-vote, the UK Housebuilding Sector tanked 36% in value in two trading days (24 and 27 June with a weekend in between); and at one stage was off almost 40%.
N+1 Singer - Morning Song 19-10-2016

Sanderson has released a full year trading update indicating that revenue is slightly ahead (we estimate 5%) of expectations, and profits are in line with expectations. Revenue growth of 10%, strong order intake (+20% to £12.0m), a reassuring order book (£3.0m) and positive trading momentum within both Digital Retail and Enterprise gives us confidence in the outlook for the current year. We increase our headline revenue estimates to reflect the strength of the full year outturn, but leave our profit and earnings estimates unchanged on slightly lower margin expectations. We continue to believe that Sanderson offers the highly attractive combination of accelerating growth potential, healthy cash generation and growing dividends at an inexpensive valuation (FY 2016 EV/EBITDA of 8.0x).
Conviction List Q4 2016
05 Oct 16
Since its inception in 2010, the Conviction List has outperformed the market in 13 of 18 periods and a reinvested Conviction List would have returned 255% against a Small Companies index that would have returned 130%. Our Conviction List returned 3.7% over the last quarter; this was set against the benchmark UK Small Companies index that returned 11.3% over the same period. Our Q4 portfolio reflects our outlook for a temporary sweet spot for UK growth during the second half of 2016. The downside risk from the uncertainty of the EU Referendum result has been countered by stimulus from the Bank of England, signs of a looser fiscal stance and an 18% YoY reduction in the Sterling Exchange Rate. Compressed corporate fixed income spreads continue to provide a valuation underpin for global equities.

Xaar has announced that its FD, Alex Bevis, will be leaving to pursue other opportunities after almost 6 years with the group. A search is underway for his replacement and Alex will remain with Xaar until 24th March 2017. While Alex’s departure is disappointing, Xaar’s strategy remains on track, with new product launches expected to drive near term organic sales growth and a target of £220m sales by 2020. This reflects stronger leverage of Xaar’s innovative technology into a broader spread of end products and markets, with the £220m expected to be composed of broadly equal contributions from ceramics, packaging & product printing, Thin film/P4, and partnerships/M&A. Prospects for the group are exciting, with positive news flow on product launches and end markets anticipated over the year ahead.
Consensus eps falling…falling…falling…rising 2.0
29 Apr 16
In January we screened for companies with estimates that had been declining consistently since a year previously, but which had risen in the immediately preceding three months (see our note dated 22 January 2016). We have reviewed the performance of those companies and, given the overall strength of this selection, we have re-run the screen. In the c.3 months since selection, the unweighted average rise was c.34% against a c.11% rise in the main All-Share index. From the same universe as before (some 900 companies) we find 38 companies selected by the screen. We note a number of stocks in the list where we have a supportive stance including: Devro (DVO LN, Buy), James Fisher (FSJ LN, Corporate), Mattioli Woods (MTW LN, Buy) and Spirent Communications (SPT LN, Buy).
