LifeSafe Holdings – “sales growth has continued to exceed the board's expectations”… but how impressive is it?

Describing itself as an “innovative fire extinguishing fluids and fire safety products” company LifeSafe Holdings (LIFS) has issued an AGM statement including that “sales growth has continued to exceed the board's expectations… becoming increasingly confident that the current outperformance of sales augurs well for trading in the second half of the year”.

Polarean Imaging – has “cash, which is expected to fund the company until May 2024”… or not?!

Medical imaging technology company Polarean Imaging (POLX) has issued a “Company Update” announcement including that it “finished 2022 with approximately $16M in cash, which is expected to fund the company until May 2024” and that it is now looking “to demonstrate the establishment of commercial traction and clinical adoption beyond our existing global research base”.

Investors Might Want to Say Hello and Not Bye, Bye to this Blackbird

Hello Share People. Blackbird plc (BIRD) is a television company that’s flying high, and I don't really think the current share price reflects this. I rather think share values should reflect future prospects rather than past achievements and Blackbird, with its ground breaking technology to help TV companies and its big investment in research and development, could win many more profitable orders in the future.

Tristel – I having previously questioned how ‘confident for strong growth’, shares fall further on interims...

Previously writing on ‘infection prevention products’ company Tristel (TSTL), in October with the shares down to around 500p I concluded that still the valuation suggested entry into the US at a vast value indeed is needed and to avoid / sell. With the shares having last closed at 417.5p, what of today-announced half year results?…


Dechra Pharmaceuticals – all I want is not a dog, cat or equine offering but a cheaper share price

I have shared my views before on the ‘development and marketing of veterinary products’ company Dechra Pharmaceuticals (DPH), including noting in early September that ‘maybe it is just me finding it easier to appraise future human (than animal) demand scope, but I am going to keep on avoiding this one despite the recent share price falls’. And whilst the shares have romped hugely since their IPO early this century, the stock is down almost 30% during the last six months. So is today’s c. 38 quid share price – after the publication of first half numbers – now cheap or still expensive?

The Hacker-Stopping Outfit Set to Make Loadsa Money By Quashing a Growing Crime

At present, hardly a week goes by without some big entity being compromised. An outfit which works hard to quash this foul crime is Manchester-based NCC Group (NCC).

Tristel – full-year results, how ‘confident for strong growth’?...

Hello Share Shunters. Nobody would have expected the profits of the mighty catering group Compass (CPG) to lose the way in 2020. Until the virus came long. Then one wondered that the company survived at all with most of the catering business struggling under the world’s restrictions. We now have results and a fundraising...


As the Grid Powers Ahead with Cost Cuts and Investment, you Might Consider it - for the Big Divi at Least

At last, after years of up and down movement that’s really amounted to little more than stagnation, my shares in National Grid (NG.) seem to move along. The company, being a near monopoly, has a welcome defensive character to it. And that’s because if the Grid goes under so do most lighting and heating systems for a usually chilly Britain...
