. . . the group recommended a total dividend of 4 pence per share, up from 3 pence. The 2002 total dividend includes a special second interim dividend of 2.5 pence . . . so interim divi is 2.5p and final divi is 1.5p am i correct ?

58.5p seems cheap, would have thought at least 65p.

jacob rothschild suggested a 'takeover' a couple of years ago. no formal offer was ever lodged,but the market judged -60 pence as fair value.imo given the current state of the global textile industry i would say that would be a generous offer today.

Yes, I like this. The long term 5yr chart shows clearly that the share is making higher bottoms since 99ish. The chart movement this Aug. suggests a slight retreat to come, but frankly it should not go much into the top 40's, a great buying opportunity again. A take-over play is likely. Company obviously held by long term, old money players with rag trade culture--this is most encouraging. Probably a £2 share in the next 2-5yrs especially if there is a share buy back, or some aggressive brand marketing. 'Coats' would make a terrific mid market fashion brand. This however would need a well grounded youngish person to make happen--and we don't grow on trees.

Of course, it has been a disaster for long term holders. My own involvement has been from identifying it as a turnaround, recovery play. Admittedly a speculative stance. Therefore I have been looking at gearing (net of cash), recent dividend record, price to book value. I averaged in CO. at 43p, but have decided to stay in on account of dividend and continueing recovery potential. By the way I would compare this stock with Somerfield (SOF) now `out of the woods' and WSP Group (WSH)..heading into them!! along with the likes of W.S. Atkins and Carillion (formerly Tarmac). All of them...as well known international `going concerns' should eventually have the momentum to carry them through (assuming initial high gearing is successfully reduced). Regards

with respect. for any long term investor this one has been a disaster. over the past several years coats crashed from 3 pounds plus to a 30 year low of -22 pence a few years ago, to 56 today. i think that the jacob rothschild involvement along with a steady dividend is currently all so most supportive.

I see Coats as a classic defensive holding in this turbulent market. Originally I `pound cost averaged in' just before they divested themselves of the Viyella operation, in the wake of the M & S meltdown at that time (Coats Viyella's main customer in those days). Dewhirst was similarly affected. Its been an intrigueing journey, (for such a `boring' sector as textiles) since the price reached around 60p on the news leaking of Lord Rothchilds (failed)`concert party' attempt to take the company private, about 2 years ago. Its global, unregulated and post recovery, well suited to the `defensive' value investor, (being priced somewhat below its lowest intrinsic value). Likewise I'm staying in for the medium to long term. Thanks Knitcraft I will now check out the HDW comparison. Regards

Has anyone else been watching the performance of COATS (CO.)and HEADWAY (HDW) Both these shares are up 20% over the last three months and any sales are mopped up by stakebuilders, (usually in late trades in the case of Coats)They both are profitable with asset values 20% approx above their share prices and pay healthy dividends.Do some research--in these markets these two offer real safety with potential for a 25% gain. I am a long term holder of both.

In the aftermath of traumas such as the likes of Enron and WorldCom, then Coats global defensive industry qualities would seem to be topical. I've noticed that the share price has ticked up a little yesterday on the days events in the U.S. plus you get a high solid dividend included!

Guiness Peat have recently declared their holding in Coats at around 22%. Does anybody have more information or ideas on this? My guess is that Coats is considered a quality `defensive' stock with a solid and relatively high yield. It is also to some extent a play on the world trade recovery cycle...something to tuck away.

As an asset/recovery play, it seems to me that Coats is very solid. P/Bk at 0.58 compares well with Dewhirst(DEWH) at 0.99. The huge discount to Net Working Capital is difficult to resist. Dividend has been maintained despite operating loss and continues to be the main attraction. Gearing net of cash at around 83% level is (just) acceptable. I have held shares in CO. for several years and was tempted to sell when the price briefly reached 60p; Why didn't I?...still beguiled by the solid dividend c/w asset base. By the way, for comparisons of other solid asset plays, anyone further interested may find it worthwhile to check out CEU. Similarly SIXH, LTHM and LFC. Albeit these last 3 are smaller companies than CO. they would probably have attracted the attention of legendary value investor Benjamin Graham, as all are selling at a substantial margin below Net Net Current Asset value (i.e.liquidation value) despite all three being going concerns with reasonable earnings records.

LO LO LO what's all this then? RNS Number:8963M Coats PLC 9 November 2001 9th November 2001 Coats plc Following speculation in the press, Coats plc confirms that EC Commission officials have visited Coats plc's offices in Stockley Park as part of an investigation into the supply of haberdashery and thread products. Coats is co-operating fully with the Commission's investigation. It is understood that the Commission has also approached William Prym GmbH & Co. KG in Germany, a manufacturer of hard haberdashery products which Coats distributes in a number of countries, and the Fachverband Verbindungs-und Befestigungstechnik, a German needle manufacturers' trade association. - Ends -
