...lots of results to plough through today so I haven't had a chance to write any up in detail. But of those that have reported in the last day or two that may be worthy of further research based on their announcements and ranking within the Compound Income Scores (in no particular order) are:
Computarcenter - CCC
Fairpoint - FRP
WH Smith - SMWH
Diploma - DPLM
Meanwhile for income we have had an update from Picton Property Income Ltd (PCTN) which has seen some good NAV growth and has been raising fresh equity to invest as it stands at a premium. This has brought the gearing down a bit and they are paying a covered dividend which gives a yield of around 4.4%.
Finally, talking of yield while many of the telecoms companies have been racing up and getting excited about the prospects of quad play deals, KCOM has been sinking faster than Hull in the Premier league. This has left it towards the bottom of its twelve month trading range where it offers a decent well cover and growing yield in excess of 6%, which is the main attraction with this one as it is struggling to grow its top line. It looks good value and somewhat oversold to me as you can see in the chart below. If it can get back to around 100 pence which it has done on four occasions in the last couple of years then it could provide a decent total return from here.
