|sadly, more than likely firip
sure all shareholders getting a little tired of this charade now|
|Most likely Directors selling to Institutions.|
|Some big trades today. Just wondering if CCT are buying back?
|we live in hope mcartdon
still cant believe this stock trades at these levels..
a re-rating is long overdue.|
|A more active period ahead.
The annual general meeting should bring some news and information on trading.
positive one would think with online and retail having had a good christmas, usa market expansion, and the toy market expanding strongly.
Then the toy fair the net week, with impetus for the new year , continuing increased demand, new products, and , the toy fair is a big window to future trading.
The shares are due a boost up and past old highs towards a PE of 12.
a much larger dividend is a future hope. like games workshop.
rather than small share repurchases which are often talked about but have not evidenced much value to shareholders in 2 years.|
|Love watching bored punters leave and lower the price hopefully will continue to when I can top up in January.|
|If it was additional shares then that would be additional equity for the company. Totally different to buying shares in the open market where there is no change in equity. The former is adding value to the company and the latter does nothing for the company, directly.
It is only really small/micro cap companies (often about to go bust!) that allows retail investors to approach the company directly to provide equity in this way. So overall yet another way retail investors are not on the same level playing field to the institutional investors.|
|But nevertheless, it would still be better than issue additional shares or placing to dilute it. Right anyone?|
|Except ii would not be interested in buying in the open market because they would not be able to obtain a worthwhile size position without driving the share price up.|
|I would prefer iis to be buying in the open market like everyone else|
|Thanks Orange1 for update.
I thought (12795 & 12797) that CCT were buying back but now see the directors are selling to the Institutions. Bodes well.
Now for a positive sales update in early January.|
|My original stake was at 33p,
The board have done o.k!|
|Institutions are buying at 525p and two directors are supplying them with the shares. This was announced after hours today:
Character Group announces it has recently undertaken a series of institutional investor meetings which were well received. In response to demand from institutional and other investors, Kiran Shah, Joint Managing Director, and Jerry Healy (Group Marketing Director) have agreed to make stock available to meet this demand
Jerry Healy and Kiran Shah being Directors of the Company and Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities (PDMRs), have notified the Company of share transactions effected in the market by them respectively as follows:
-- On 9 December 2016 Mr Jeremiah Healy Group Marketing Director, exercised 72,000 unapproved share options, at an exercise price of 35.5p per share. Accordingly the Company then allotted to Mr Healy 72,000 Ordinary Shares of 5p each representing 0.34% of the Company's issued voting share capital. Mr Healy has today sold 36,000 Ordinary Shares in the Company at a price of 525p per share. Following this sale, Mr Healy's shareholding in the Company is 36,000 ordinary shares, which represents approximately 0.17% of the Company's issued voting share capital.
-- Kiran Shah, Joint Managing Director, today sold 147,000 Ordinary Shares in the Company at a price of 525p per share. Following this sale, Mr Shah's shareholding interest in the Company is 2,140,001 Ordinary Shares, which represents approximately 10.09% of the Company's issued voting share capital.|
|has to be a great investment for 2017.
vast majority had this pencilled in for a profit warning, with regards the situation with the £.
it would seem that the astute and seasoned management of Character were/are ahead of the curve.
i remain long both in portfolio and SIPP.|
|Next expected info is jan noting sales success levels over christmas, first week jan generally. They then tend to report about toy fair end jan, and buyback around then when the money has come in from stock levels falling.
Any big buys now are institutional or pension fund positioning.
there is plenty of room for it to rise further yet but nothing is a straight line.|
|I doubt it, they put one out last week and are not known for announcing every few weeks which actually reassures me.|
|All noted but again lots of sales today, price stabilised, so I am expected we will get a positive RNS from CCT in the very near future.|
|you cant judge whats a sale in a fast rising market, there is just excess demand over sales not necessarily buybacks.
character have lots to invest in in usa and internationally to bring sales to those markets not just an increase in stock while expanding so fast foreign profits are probably not repatriated.|
|Quite a few sales today, but share price rose. Just wondering if CCT are buying back?
|Been buying back in since the results as I can see the share price reach an all time high in the coming weeks/months.
Fundamentally solid, with excellent cash generation and the large war chest for buybacks should ensure a floor on the price imo.|
|I agree with that. It seems bonkers to me that a company with 20% growth in revenue and profit is rated at 10 times earnings. Pays 3% dividend well covered by profits and has net cash is buying back shares. I think a PE ratio of 15 would be much more realistic implying a 50% increase in the share price.|
|The sale of Teletubies in usa is due to start in early 2017 along with Stretch Armstorong, these two should ensure a large rise in foreign turnover and dollar earnings possibly marked , causing a step change in character. Continued growth in UK, and amelioration of the fall in the pound with a possible pound recovery as Brexit becomes less feared and the euro fades will bring further succour to the share.
i see an aim of 140m t/o next year with very positive reports over the next six months.
with 20m assets and 6m cash no debt the valuation of just over 100 m is nearly 40% below where it reasonably should be so my aim is 7 pounds a share by 2018 at base with possibly a step change up on good news.|
|Good follow on rise today. I imagine the IC will cover this positively, since they have tipped this recently.|
