|Reinvestment?.....did you notice that the largest declared holder is Robert Adair with a 21%+ stake. I have held a holding in his Melrose Resources MRS for several years, which is already a multibagger with lots of exploration interest...RA has 51%.RA also has a controlling holding in THG,which is also going like a train.
On techs I really like Patsystems (PTS) which under new (share buying) management is generating good sales orders for its trading systems- NB new customer Nomura
Gold is technically strong at the moment and one stock that I think will multibag is Gold Mines of Australia (GMA)where RAB Capital is the latest to go declarable.Punters may like the cheap price 10.75p middle, and I hear the PE will be single figures by end 08.Hope this isn't ramping as I hold all bar THG!|
|I expect FDP to jump after the close of this tax period with an expected realistic value circa £3.50. This is based on the projected results due to be announced in 4 weeks.|
|TBH Quite a few focussed software companies seem to offer value at the moment. How about VI Group (VIG)? Been in for a year now but should be lots more mileage yet. It will be my largest holding when EWD is sold. Current year forecast at 1.84p is 50% up on last year - results for which are out in a few weeks, and will hopefully confirm the story of strong growth in Far Eastern markets for its CAD/CAM products with contributions from recent acquistions. In which case the current year P/E of 8.7 is too low.|
|Where next to put our money guys? What's the best 2 year plan for a multibagger?
NTV has come up with Pennant. Any other ideas?|
|Well done James Leek!! I bought these in the 20's and groaned when Meristem seemed to go wrong.To his great credit he abandoned his idea of a consolidation vehice in the engineering sector.....and squeezed out maximum value through clever asset sales and share buybacks.....with him often buying himself.An excellent case of watching what the owners are doing rather than taking the (earlier)offer(s).Pity I let plenty go but still had 10k at the end.T|
|Lovely Jubbly :-)
Gengulphus - I'm a newcomer too (if I set aside the fact that I bought these as Torday and Carlisle @ 35p and sold @ 70p Doh!) but that's a nice swift return in a fornight, tax or no tax :-)
Still, as you say - darn right inconsiderate of them - and paying it in cash to at a big premium :-)
Nice problem to have..|
|Curses! I'm a relative newcomer to these shares and this is going to give me a completely untapered and unwanted realised capital gain...
Why couldn't they have had the decency to wait another few months and give me a reasonable chance to hang on to my shares until the first anniversary of their purchase date??? ;-)
|always leave a piece of cake for others
it is rude not too
i would have said pennant but it must have been tipped somewhere today :-(((|
|3M are getting a good company and great products at a decent price. If I was a director I would have held out for £3.50 - 3.70 range. I think the deal has been constructed to leave some value on the table for the new buyers.|
|Game over lads
Well done to all the long term holders
Well done especially to SteMiS for drawing attention to and providing superb analysis of this share during recent years.
Hope the italics attempt works.
|Great news this morning. I still maintain than £3.60 by end of year was on target but will take £3.23 now absolutely.
What's our next long term hold SteMis, NTV?? been in these for well over 3 years and very well worth it!
By the way SteMis our guesses on results were very accurate!|
|shame i liked the share
will see you somewhere else soon hopefully|
|Game over ... and here's a second N'cle Utd. supporter who benefited. Glad I resisted the "offer to shareholders" in 2004/5 at 80 pence ... in fact, it led me to double my holding. My thanks to Stemis for his informed analysis over recent years.|
|Game over lads
Announcement today of a £40.2 million recommended cash offer of 323 pence per share by 3M UK Holdings Limited ('3M') for the group;
That 88p up on yesterday's closing price. Amazing that it didn't seem to leak out at all.
Well done to all the long term holders.|
|Results out - looks good. 323p recommended offer !|
|We should see the results this week, with the absolute deadline of Fri 31st March I believe|
We are expecting bullish results to be announced next week (possibly Monday)
240 purchases are definitely value in my eyes too. I think that you will see a nice 3 month appreciation on your investment. My guess at fair value is around 350-380
Selftrade presently allowing customers to sell 5,000 max and buy only 500 max per online trade. This is a good sign|
|Bought a few today, looks very cheap still.
Results in 10 days or less I think?
|Market expectations are not looking good... but maybe just MM's playing with us..
Selftrade showing results date of Mon 12th March|
|Any guesses on the date of release of results?|
|Results: £3.4M PBT looks as good a guess as any.
Net cash: £0.5M - £1.0M
Reason for share price plateau - lack of newsflow. No broker research. Company in close period for share buybacks.
Prediction for share price movement - hard to say. I would hope for £3 by end of year but hard to predict.|
|Predictions of results?
Reasons for the plateau in sp?
Predictions on share price movement over the next 4 weeks up to results and next 4 months?
