In a double bill of columns today, Simon Thompson has been running his slide rule over a specialist provider of finance to small- and medium-sized enterprises that has posted eye-catching annual results, but is priced below book value and on a single digit earnings multiple; and a fund manager of alternative asset classes that has reached a major inflexion point and is now set to deliver highly profitable growth and a progressive dividend, too.
