1gw: Once you remove the fat-finger/corrected trades, I think you can split Thursday's big volume trades into 2 groups of 9.505m shares, all transacted in the low 170's. My guess (but as you can see above, I've been wrong with the guesses very recently) is that this would be Sports Direct's CFD counterparty buying shares and an existing shareholder selling them - although that then leaves you a bit short of declared trades to get up to the 10.9m bought by Sports Direct - even if you assume that they or their counter-party were hoovering up the rest of the shares (the 5000-share ATs and the 30k odd in the closing auction). Maybe the missing shares came from a non-LSE platform? Anyway, I've bought some more at 198p on the basis that either through an outright bid for Findel, or through a commercial marketing/distribution arrangement between Sports Direct and Findel, Sports Direct's increased holding will turn out to be a positive for the Findel share price. And I note that my purchase (which went through on ICAP according to the contract note) doesn't appear on the advfn trade listing. My opinions and guesses only - no advice intended.

1gw: And things have started moving again today. Have to wait for the TR-1's to have a better idea of what exactly, but odds on Sports Direct baling out I would have thought (because the large trades were priced in the 170's). However, even if it is SD baling, it will be interesting to see who was buying, given the share price reaction. Was it just Toscafund and Schroders buying them back or is someone else involved? And was the series of 5000-share buys which appeared to drive the price up (before the larger trades appeared on the trade listing) linked to the bigger trades or something else? Hopefully most will be revealed in forthcoming holdings notices.

1gw: Could be a trading statement on Thursday (1st October). Interesting that they chose to announce the approach for Kitbag today, with the Sports Direct holding news, rather than keep it back for a TU a couple of days later. If the news wasn't about to leak, I would have thought a TU was the more obvious place to notify the market of the interest in Kitbag. Does that suggest some concern about Sports Direct's near-term intentions? Releasing the news about Kitbag at the same time as the holdings news might have been expected to push the share price up (more so than just the holdings notice) and so make it more expensive for Sports Direct to acquire more shares in the near-term. Or does Sports Direct's aggressive move suggest that they may already know about the Kitbag interest and so Findel felt they had no choice but to release the news to the rest of the market?

darias: Beazer I agree that the company appears sound however, share prices reflect the market view of the stock and not the state of the company. We held for many years like you took up the rights and held a loss for a very long time. The management was good and did all the right things and the share price recovered. However early this year the share price rose to well over 30% that we paid for them. It was clear that we would not get the chance to make 30% for a very long time so we implemented a stop loss and, as reported above, that was automatically sold at around £3. We sat on a very good profit. Looking again there is support around £2:50 mark and if they are at that price next meeting I will recommend buying another lump. If they fall through £2:50 I may not consider a recommendation for buying but if they are over £2:60 I certainly will not be buying without very good reason. That is company fundamentals and not predictions. I learnt a long time ago "never fall in love with a share" the market doesn't. "What's a share worth? What some other mug will pay for it".

beazer2: I am at something of a loss, in both respects, on this one. I bought some years ago and took up the rights. It has been a dog of a share but management has really got to grips with the company. The IMS at the beginning of April was as good as anything you could wish to see and the share price has slid from 320p to below 260p at which point I have started buying. The shares, on the confirmed profit estimate, are on a multiple of 12 and with margins expected to improve markedly, and action being taken to correct the remaining loss-making divisions, this is set to come down to well below 10. So a real growth stock but why the slide in sp? As I say I am at a loss but averaging down with a level of confidence.

bobsidian: "...it is hard to see the FDL share price tripling or quadrupling over the next year or two -which should be the criteria for investing now." Were FDL not to have undergone any balance sheet restructuring and capital raising exercise I would tend to agree. However, FDL have done just that. And how often have such doubts been expressed about any possibility of a sharp rebound in a share price prior to a sudden move higher ? You need look no further than the share price history of FDL itself to witness just such activity. It is a share with Lazarus like qualities. And as far as the uncertainties facing its key markets, are they not already more than priced in at current levels ? Surely long term investment is about identifying potential buying opportunities before the broader market latches on to a story of survival and the possibilities of subsequent recovery ? And as far as doubts about the abilities of new management, if such doubts were considered critical then it is highly unlikely that the capital raising exercise would have been so supported.

bottomfisher: Hard to see FDL's share price rebounding from current levels until the underwriters get rid of the 178m shares (10% of the enlarged equity) which they could not sell at the rights issue price of 6.54p. In addition, it is not clear what has happened to the 368.75m shares that Tosca agreed to sub-underwrite in addition to the 242.8m shares that it was committed to taking up under the rights issue. Recent shareholding disclosure announcements have been confusing. But based on what has been reported so far, Schroders, traditionally FDL's biggest shareholder, has seen its stake slip from 28.96% to 25.28% whilst Tosca's stake has risen from 19.85% to 25.28%. It is unclear whether this means that Tosca avoided having to subscribe for the bulk of the 368.74m shares (21.7% of FDL's enlarged equity) that it had agreed to subunderwrite. If it does then the scale of the share overhang is limited to the 10% of the equity left with JP Morgan Cazenove. That is bad enough. But if there is another 20% of the equity overhanging the market, the share price outlook is grim. Given the relatively lengthy timetable of FDL's recovery plans; an untested top management team (in the form of a new chairman, CEO, and FD); a fragile and highly geared balance sheet even after the rights issue; and a deteriorating UK economic outlook; it is hard to see the FDL share price tripling or quadrupling over the next year or two -which should be the criteria for investing now. Would love to hear a bullish case for investing in FDL to counter my pessimistic analysis.
