|Whilst on this thread, go to "Trades" on the top bar and choose 24 Jan. If you're timed out wait until after the 4:30 close then choose the date. Uncrossing at end-day is very common with SETS.|
|My mistake. How do you know that, it came up as an ordinary buy on LSE? I'm just getting used to posting, emerging from being just a reader.|
|Jamgr0 - the final 50,000 yesterday was the closing auction uncrossing (marked "UT"). It's not a single trade but a matching price for all uncompleted orders at the end of the day -clears the decks.
It quite often happens that this price is a lot above or below what you might expect, so I wouldn't put too much importance on it. It certainly wasn't a single buyer of 50k shares.

|These 1p and 2p increases are very welcome. Ore big buys today. There's several 140-142p price targets on GTLY but IMO there's more to come longer term. The annual report will make for interesting reading to see how well the Gateley Capitus and Gateley Hamer businesses are bedding in to the model|
|Jonwig - I've certainly done my research on this firm!|
|Jonwig, that's a good point. Though you'd hope it was never necessary to rely on equities or debt to sustain the firm. Especially as partners' (in a management structure sense) remuneration is intrinsically linked to the profits of the firm. I certainly can't see a recession sinking Gateley. It continues to meet its strategic targets and hopefully cements itself as one of the beacons in the crowded UK mid-size firm market over the next couple of years.|
|Jamgr0 - an interesting question might be whether a quoted law firm (GTLY) would be in a better position if it faced a serious recession since it would be able to tap the financial markets for equity or banks for debt. A partnership would be less flexible, perhaps?
Of course, bad management wouldn't - ultimately - save a PLC either, except through merger or takeover.|
|Commercial law firms will always be in demand. If clients start to feel the pinch, corporate deals (the main revenue stream) may well dry up to some extent. However, other services offered, like litigation, insolvency work, debt recovery, and advisory services will still be sought after. Recession proof is a stretch. I wouldn't say law firms per se are recession proof. A well run firm with a good reputation and solid fundamentals should weather the storm. That said, see Halliwells as an example of a firm that went bust during the last recession (I think in 2010) due mainly to bad management.|
|anley - if I remember right, the prospectus listed construction (where they do a lot of legal work) as a risk.|
|Would you put this business as "recession" proof?|
|nice tip, glad I've been tipping it for a while! off to the races today....|
|Thanks, here's the link. Did you read the dopey comment someone wrote: "Ambulance chasers."

|Law firm Gateley buying, building and paying out - HTTP://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/2016/12/06/shares/news-and-analysis/law-firm-gateley-buying-building-and-paying-out-82a3u7o6zVlpfSOvEqHLhN/article.html|
|very good, nice yield, decent outlook, should be zooming higher IMO!|
|H1 results, very satisfactory:
Consensus for FY is eps 9.85p, div 6.59p. With the interim dividend increased to 2.2p, a full year of 6.6p would be expected. I don't remember reading anything about H2 vs H1 profit weighting.|
|great yield IMO on this as well|
|well all seems on track IMO>..let's hope it helps move the SP|!|
|Trading update, brief:
Gateley (AIM:GTLY), a national commercial law firm and complementary business services group, is pleased to announce an update on trading ahead of its interim results for the six months ended 31 October 2016.
Trading for the first half of the year has been good with growth in revenue and operating profit supported by good cash generation in line with the Board's expectations.
The Board looks forward to the second half of the financial year, with further organic growth in the Group's core legal services, augmented by the contributions from our recently acquired complementary businesses of Gateley Capitus and Gateley Hamer combining to deliver on Gateley's diversification strategy.
The Board expects to announce the Group's half year results in early December 2016.|
yes looked at last year and should be due some form of update IMO over next few weeks. Let's see. My experience is that lawyers make hay whether rain or shine, so hoping this is still the case!
