On September 8th 2017, REDS published a trading update ahead of the interim results announcement October 10th. The company said it was pleased with the progress made across the business in the first half, and confirmed trading was in line with management expectations. Software Applications continues to gain market traction, and the company said it had commenced the global roll out of OneSpaceTM, its real estate management software platform. Managed Services also reported an encouraging start to the year. The acquisition of Anders + Kern U.L. Ltd is now fully integrated into the Company and has provided excellent complementary skill sets and a positive contribution to the Company. In addition the company secured a prestigious contract to install an IT cabling infrastructure throughout Tottenham Hotspur’s new 61,500 seat stadium. CEO Mark Braund said while the performance is anticipated to be largely second half weighted, “given our pipeline of work, new business momentum and strong order book, coupled with the additional services that we have added to our offering through the acquisition of A+K, we remain confident for the full year.”

A number of key metrics alerted VectorVest subscribers to the potential at REDS earlier in 2017. The VST Vector, the master indicator for ranking every stock in the VectorVest database, logs REDS with a rating of 1.25, very good on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. Key to growth potential, the GRT (Earnings Growth Rate) flagged the potential at REDS earlier this summer, when the shares were trading around 123p. The stock has since recovered to 138p, but still retains a forecasted GRT of 35%, which VectorVest considers to be excellent. Traders should note that the RS (Relative Safety) metric records a fair rating of 0.87 on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00, but with a current VectorVest valuation of 174p per share, in the run up to next week’s results announcement REDS remains undervalued.

The chart of REDS is shown above using my normal layout. The blue line study in the window below the price shows the rise in earnings per share (EPS) over the last six months and this is the engine that’s driving the share price higher. The share is on a Buy signal on VectorVest and looks set to move towards the old highs of 190/200 in the near future.

Summary: The transformation in the company under the stewardship of CEO Mark Braund, coupled with a solid first half performance really puts REDS in the frame as an enticing investment opportunity for the more adventurous investor. With clear potential for growth in the second half of the year, VectorVest rates the stock as a buy.
