SmallCap Round Up: Dekel Agri-V, Helium One, H&T Group


The AIM All Share Index really can’t seem to get a break right now, trading lower again on the day, comprehensively underperforming the FTSE-100 which is running around 1% up on the day and only finding a modest degree of support off the back of early gains on Wall Street. With 20 minutes to run the index was around one point lower at 737.47.

  • Dekel Agri-V +19%
  • Helium One +17%
  • H&T Group +11%
  • Catenai -30%
  • CVS Group -24%

Dekel Agri-V [LON:DKL] was topping the board although gains were a rather measured 19% around 4pm. Notifications published to the market advised that executive director Lincoln Moore had extended his holding in the business to 1.3%, suggesting he spotted a bargain as shares traded at all time lows last week.

Helium One [LON:HE1] also put in a good performance, added 17% on the day and starting to claw back some of those losses picked up in the wake of the operational update which received a rather frosty market response last week. The stock was in second place heading towards the bell.

Pawnbrokers H&T Group [LON:HAT] get the notable mention, up 11% by late afternoon in the wake of preliminary results issued this morning. Pre-tax profits were 39% ahead, the full year dividend is up 17% and given that the share price had slipped in recent weeks with demand expected to remain strong for the company’s services in 2024 the uptick here could look underdone.

Catenai [LON:CTAI], the company previously known as Catenae Innovation, was left propping up the board today, trading some 30% lower as we head towards the bell. That was however in response to a series of corporate actions including a placing, which was undertaken at a 40% discount to last night’s closing price, underlining that investors see value in the capital restructure.

CVS Group [LON:CVSG] was in second to last place at copy time, trading some 24% lower. The vet services group has been hit by the CMA investigation into pricing in the sector which today reported that pet owners could be overpaying for services. CVS along with other operators are proposing remedies that would offer improved clarity for investors but until agreement is reached then the uncertainty will likely drag on the share price.
