Hello Share Traders. One of my favourite companies recently reported some jolly numbers and is worth a look. The clue for what this international outfit does is in its amusing epic code. Strix (KETL) makes the pop-out gizmos that stop our electric kettles burning out once they’ve boiled.
Hello Share Rattlers. I’ve commended Strix Group (KETL) to you before but lately this maker of kettle bits has not been one of my more illustrious calls. It’s down by a third compared to the second half of last year. But the fall, connected to perceived supply and transport issues together with the rising cost of raw materials, seems to me unjustified.
Hello, Share Campers. When the Footsie’s falling and you hold a share that’s just reached an all-time high, you know you might, in the words of Herman’s Hermits, be into something good. Strix Group, with the amusing epic code of KETL, is one such baby in my book. It’s worth taking another peek at its credentials.
Hello, Share Stickers. As I’ve observed before, companies which operate within a niche have a better chance of success. A niche outfit operates in a tiny corner of a market which their customers can’t do without. Such is the nature of Strix Group (KETL). You’ll notice the epic code has now’t to do with the company name. Until you know that Strix makes bits for kettles.
An AGM statement from water temperature management components group Strix (KETL) emphasises that “we anticipate delivering revenue growth of circa 30% for the group during 2021 which also underpins our confidence in achieving our medium-term target to double the group's revenues over the next five years”. What though does that mean financially and how’s current performance?...
Hello Share Followers. Strix Group (KETL) describes itself as ‘The World leader in kettle control.’ That’s good for everyone whose kettle is running amok. But of course there’s much more to it than that. Strix develops and makes the bits of electric kettles that cut the power when the thing is boiling. Sounds like a limited sort of business but not when you have nearly 40% of the world market in the area.
