So a special profit made and the cash goes into reducing the debt until such time as its needed to repay its annual payment on the debt raised longish term for the transport deal. So a very flexible position to be in BUT the market does not give it credit and the share price has done nothing over the past 4 years. Will sit this out having built up a position for my family fund and a 7% yield.

Disposal of Education division - for £64.4 m including pension liability - how much was it bought for?

You may be right but have a look at how the share price has moved - very interesting. Who would want to bid for this well run company which seems to be unloved by the City?

Agreed davros, I can't believe how unexpiring that was, and with all the talk of great Christmas period for parcel companies etc, I would have expected a lot better. This will go nowhere no for next 6 months. I'll probably sell up too, and look to come back in 6 months.

I'm out right at the open - dull hardly the word. They must have had some positive outlook looking forwards - it's as if they want to talk down the prospects for the company. Not sure I want to hold a share achieving

Implied growth in Tuffnells for H2. But that is some way away. Meanwhile steady as she goes on the turnover front. Been very reliable over the last few years, just held back by a market that cannot seem to see beyond the slowly declining news distribution division...

Wasn't much to light the fires was it!However the figures were consistent with very slight growth which is no bad thing.

Nothing wrong with dull when there seems to be a growing number of profit warnings about.

This company does have a habit of finding cost savings and synergies in the media business. And important to note that, while the number of newspapers is declining, the cover price has been lifted successfully. Meanwhile the magazine and newspaper business is becoming ever closer to being only half the business from the operating profit standpoint, all the while maintaining or growing EPS. Hard to bet against the current management - or the growing trend for shipping internet purchases usingdistribution networks like Connects'. Meanwhile, books are recovering popularity somewhat, and we are still in the early, loss-making stages of Pass-My-Parcel, where the loss is expected to narrow as the business picks up. And Education has potential too. Not going to make predictions, but Iknow where I stand as we come up to the trading statement on Friday.

It is somewhat inevitable that the physical newspaper distribution business is contracting with the relentless march of the digital age. That could be bad for cnct but on the positive side as the company is well managed and productive it could pick up businesses from weaker competitors as they fail to compete. The other aspect to cnct is that it has become a general logistics company with more strings to it's bow. If the update shows continued good cash flow and maintained or increased dividends then I am happy to continue to be a holder.

I believe these have a Trading Update out on the 26th Jan. There could be an uplift on share price if details are good.

Patterns repeat until they don't. I know that is kind of pleonastic, but basically I like the share and don't want to sell down significantly around the dividend date, and risk watching it go up for once, without me...

Yea if only haha that was down to experience this one as many a time in past years I held through divi and realised it wasn't the best move so Heyho different approach. It's not 100% gaurenteed but better if your trading.cnct might hit £2 after upcoming results who knows? GL
