Wouldn’t be surprised if executive chair ,NR is guiding Volex to a £1 billion market capitalisation over a couple of years.Since he has taken over the reins Volex has gone from strength to strength using his contacts, acquisitions and organic growth. All divisions have performed exceptionally well.
Been following this share now for a couple of years and it appears range bound 150 to 190 apart from pandemic period.Only thing in its favour is the dividend.The CFO is leaving and no replacement has been announced. It is cash generative and may be attractive to a bigger player.
Guidance from company at full year results was for good progress in 2020 and again re iterated in trading update in April. Since then due to Covid-19 ,press have reported numerous outbreaks of infection and temporary closures at meat processing plants in USA and EU. Company hasn’t commented on this with an update ? Some institutional investors have reduced their holdings. Others may see this as an opportunity. There is doubt over the “suspended 6.3 p “ dividend being paid as it is under review. SP has dropped ~ 30 % over three weeks.....interim results due end of July.

Devro has been a poor investment for long term holders with the SP on a downward trajectory The dividend does not compensate for the potential loss of capital.
