|Great value entry point, director buying with results 9th March and juicy dividend paid in April. Building a position here over the next week or so|
|226p Mcap 152m, Nos 67.4m|
|Looking likely to rise up towards £3 here|
|According to the pre-close TU on 6 Feb the full year results will be announced on 9 Mar. The last director purchase was on 7 Feb, just over 4 weeks before the results. I thought the closed period was more like 6-8 weeks? It was the FD who purchased on the 7th which is usually a good sign. Bought a few myself today.|
|In a recent issue of Growth Company Investor, Gervais Williams of Miton Asset Management described CTR as a stable business and a world leader at what it does on a cheap valuation. The article post-dated the sales warning and at the time the share price was around 250p. I put it on my watchlist and bought in yesterday following the solid trading update.
In the same article he mentioned CROS which was 33p at the time and is now 53p to sell.|
|It means in line with revised expectations. However it looks like it was due to a very benign claims environment (50% of the business is loss adjusting) which won't last forever. There have been a lot of director buys and the yield is approaching 5% so I bought a few at 218p.|
|This has just appeared on my radar.

8.03am update, warning hidden away, been on my watchlist for a long time but management have just persuaded me not to invest for a long time.
Feel sorry for all holders
When you say 'warning hidden away' do you mean
" This acquisition, together with recent acquisitions and business developments, is expected to support the Group's earnings growth, although this is now anticipated to be somewhat lower than the market's previous expectations for 2017. "
If so then the pre-close TU on 6 Feb said
"The Company anticipates that its 2016 results will be in line with market expectations. The Group has made a solid start to 2017."
The question is, does in line with market expectations mean expectations prior to the 22 Nov TU or revised expectations following it?
Fundamentals look ok, multiple of 15 doesn't look excessive and a decent dividend too. Results on 9th March, this could be good for a quick 10-15% from todays price of 227p.
Quiet board this.|

|The spread is that way because the shares are not often traded. So even a small trade affects the price.|
|Would like some, have been watching for weeks but the spread seems continually horrible.|
|Peel Hunt have a note out this morning where they have a target of £2.85 and upgrades for the next two years driven by generally stronger operating performance. They say that profits in 2015 and 2016 will also benefit from the £1.7m gain on purchase relating to recent Scottish Widows Transaction. They now have: Dec 15 PBT/EPS £14.0m/20.0p (from £12.1m/20.3p), Dec 16 £15.2m/19.9p (from £13.3m/21.9p). We also increase dividend expectations: Dec 15 9.9p (from 8.8p), Dec 16 10.4p (from 8.8p). We estimate net funds raised could generate a further £4.5m of profits, or 35% of current year expectations, highlighting the potential and momentum behind the business. Valuation - Dec 15 Per of 11.2x, yield 4.4%"|
|What do you make of it, speedsgh?
Share price is well below the 238.125p theoretical price following the announcement.
Would it be fair to say there will be some share price weakness for a while as the new shareholdings are shuffled about?
Had no knowledge of this company, but John Lee mentions it in today's FT.
Last year they paid 10.75p in dividends. Must look up what intentions are going forward.|
