Historically, small caps stocks have outperformed larger listed companies after economic downturns and this trend is ringing true once again, with smaller stocks offering better returns in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. It is currently an exciting time to be invested in smaller companies and for those with a keen eye for detail that can identify companies with financial strength and strong management teams, there is potentially lots of upside available.

H1 EBITDA declined by 45% YoY, albeit this was slightly better than we had anticipated after the pre-close update in August. The beat was cost related (efficiencies/savings). There was a significant gross margin drag though and, while transitory in nature and diminishing in H2, this means further savings need to be realised to hit full year forecasts. This is our view and we retain a good level of confidence in next year’s forecasts. Having de-rated, valuation looks very undemanding now on just

Venture Life has announced its interim results for the six months to June 2021. As previously announced in the August trading statement, revenues were down YoY due to lower HSG sales and sales to the Chinese partner, though revenues are expected to grow subsequently, benefiting from the two recent acquisitions. H1/21 gross margin was impacted by a number of factors including supply chain costs and stockholding costs; however, the company expect margins to improve in H2/21E. Despite the set-backs

Synairgen reported FY 2020 results that showed an adjusted net loss of £13.7m, with year-end cash of £75.0m, some £27m higher than our expectations. The delta can largely be accounted for by delays in starting enrolment into the Phase III trial as well as the treatment of prepayments for drug substance and nebulisers: the latter reflected in working capital rather than expensed through the income statement. Near-term focus remains on the outcome of the Phase III study (SG018), and with the enrol

As we had already speculated at a recent target price change (on 05/02/2021), the announced departure of Dr Krick, Fresenius’ dinosaur, could trigger some changes. The first ‘victim’ may be the head of Kabi and we clearly expect more to come. In essence, this could signal to the capital markets that there is something already set in motion. This might change sentiment towards Fresenius as we still see the share is clearly undervalued.
