After rejigging the algorithm and reassessing every share ranked by his Decision Engine stock screener, companies analyst Richard Beddard has a lot to report on.
Finsbury Food Group total sales revenues grew by 4% to £105.5m during the first four months of its 2017-18 financial year and trading was in line with expectations.
The group said this was a pleasing performance which showed resilience and recognised that the UK retail food market had recently transitioned from a deflationary to an inflationary environment.
Finsbury also said it continued to benefit from the geographically diverse nature of its operations.
Speculators focus on extremes, leaving good firms at reasonable prices in the middle - unloved and undervalued. Here's why Richard Beddard's stocks are 'safest in the middle course'.

Finsbury Food Group - a leading speciality bakery manufacturer of cake, bread and morning goods for both the retail and foodservice channels - has decided to close Grain D'Or factory.
It said that the closure, which was anticipated to be completed by 2 Dec, meant the company would benefit from not supporting the losses associated with the factory.
Despite some problems, there's no reason to ditch these two stocks yet, argues companies analyst Richard Beddard. He's holding because of what they might still achieve in the future.
