Strix – interims state “no material uncertainties about the group's ability to continue as a going concern”, it sure about that?

Previously writing on kettle safety controls and other water temperature management components group Strix (KETL), in July with the shares rising above 105p I questioned how significant its trading improvement was and concluded, particularly ahead of further half-year financial insights, to continue to avoid. The shares most recently closed at 91.6p… and now the half-year results and the shares currently down below 55p! What’s going on here now?

Kettle safety controls and other water temperature management components group, Strix (KETL) has issued an AGM statement commencing “We are pleased to report an improved trading performance and can confirm that profit after tax for the full year remains in line with market expectations”.

Strix – to “prioritise debt reduction”, what about the only in November argued “strong balance sheet”?!

Kettle safety controls and other water temperature components group Strix (KETL) has issued a trading update including that it “has achieved adjusted profit after tax for the full year of approximately £23m” and “the disruptive effects of ongoing lockdowns being enforced in China are now beginning to show signs of abating”. So what of a current share price response up by more than 10% to 100p?

Strix – another profit warning, argues “a strong balance sheet” but is it?

Kettle safety controls and other water temperature components group Strix (KETL) commences an announcement today that it “is pleased to announce… completed the acquisition of Billi” and also includes that it “continues to maintain its strong market share position in Kettle Controls and is outperforming the market in the Appliance and Water categories. In addition, Strix has a strong balance sheet”. So what of a current share price response to 78p...more than 37% down!?

This Niche Company Steams Along after its Snaffling of a Stylish Italian Kitchen King

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.

Strix Has Been Off the Boil, but the Maker of Kettle Bits Seems Set to Steam Head Again

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.

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.

Kettle King Steams Ahead According to Hot Trading Update

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.

Strix – “anticipate delivering revenue growth of circa 30%“ as impressive as it sounds?

Strix Group could Steam Ahead in the Next Five Years, So Shareholders Might Sit Back and Put the Kettle on

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.

Strix – “Statement Regarding Current Situation in China”… how reassuring?
