Lotus: I think CEI Contract Mfrg deserves a higher priority. Just look at the shocking increase in interim dividend. :)

I have included Design Studio into my high yield list following its 1H results which were released last evening. Key notes:-
- marginal Qtr profit growth against corresponding 2Q14
- order books remain solid
- interim dividend per share raised
Performance is impressive considering slower market conditions.

Good article, well articulated.

Am vested earlier in view of its established business model, rising order books and strong FCF and financial position. A quality stock and one should hold long term as high yield play..
