Share Centre Share of the Week: Stadium Group
Stadium Group is a UK based provider and manufacturer of niche electronic technologies. The group’s recent change of focus has been positive and resulted in restructuring and cost cutting in order to become a specialist provider in its sector.
Stadium’s latest update in April showed results in line with expectations, and confidence in its prospects for the year ahead. The group has recently acquired IGT Industries and United Wireless to help with its new strategy. Its two divisions, Integrated Electronic Manufacture Services and Technology Products, focus on providing to six core sectors: Medical, Security, Industrial, Automotive, Lighting and Defence.
We look positively on the improving margins and cash conversion, along with attractive earnings growth forecasts. Production facilities have also been upgraded in the UK and Asia. There is also a progressive dividend policy, which may attract investors, especially as this not always the case for AIM companies. With a forecast yield of 2.2% for 2015 we recommend Stadium Group as a ‘buy’ for higher risk investors looking to achieve a balanced portfolio.
