|It's a bit disappointing to see gains being given up as gold falls back but credit markets are seeing default rates rising significantly..
I cannot honestly claim to have got all my recent top up at as low as 235 but as I said at the time I though it oversold. I achieved mostly below 240 so I am happy with that.
I am guessing a little delay at 300 before any further move up (which could be a quite dramatic one IMO). Historically 320 and 360 are levels which might be ceilings but I think sentiment here is very positive so running this position for a little while....|
|HAT did well out of the last downcycle, with eps peaking at 36p and the dividend at nearly 12p for the year 2012. There are signs the UK (and US) are starting to slow (and some recent mixed signals in Europe) - with general debt levels right across the globe much higher than in 2008. I think there might be scope to beat the previous numbers around 2021 if next year turns out to be the one where the next recession shows up. Whether or not, holding some HAT makes me feel a little less uncomfortable when considering if some recent weaker news is the end of the current 7-year bull market. The average bull maket is 6-7 years long.|
|Would expect healthy continuation of dividend profile|
|Kicking myself for not topping up at 235|
|Near 4-year high of £1053.|
|Gold still tending to creep up slowly, despite the £ not falling any more for a few weeks. £1047.|
|Gold still creeping up. £1043 after nearly hitting £1050 overnight. Lots of profit warnings from UK smallcaps this week and UK car sales were up last month but private sales fell and they tend to lead fleet sales in the cycle - and talk of exceptional levels of preregistering by dealers unsustainably inflating the numbers. Both of these trends previously occurred just ahead of the last recession..|
|£ down and gold up again. £1039. Weak retail sales and rising unemployment, reported this week, suggest this one could also be moving up this year as the economic cycle looks like it might turning down, despite the weaker £. There aren't many shares about that hedge an economic downturn. Maybe the £ is falling due to the UK entering recession as much as Brexit.|
|I felt the recent fall and profit taking was a nice opportunity to purchase some more stock at a very fair price. And so I did. I am not wholly sure as to the reasons why so many shares have been sold of late. I may be missing something of course bnut mid - term I have a lot of confidence in this one. I have finished buying for now FWIW.|
|Gold creeping up again in sterling - £1023/oz.|
|Of more concern than 20p in a week is 60p gone this month after it hit 300p on Sep 7.
I wonder if the fall is connected with the perceived new toughness of the Financial Conduct Authority. HAT commented in the 2015 financial report on responsibility for regulation moving from the OFT to the FCA, "...we welcome the higher standards that this change will bring to our sector." If, as seems likely, HAT is not involved in dubious practice then this could be an unfair markdown.
"CFO Lending, which was fined £34m this week by the Financial Conduct Authority, is just the latest operator brought to its knees by regulators punishing bad lending behaviour. CFO, which traded under brand names Payday First, Money Resolve and Flexible First, will have to hand money back to nearly 100,000 victims of its unfair practices."|
|why the big fall?
profits warning on the way?
insiders in the know as usual|
|Seems strange for this one to be down 20p in a week when gold has gone up £30.|
|Gold creeping up slightly as £ falls again. £1014/oz. Euro 1.159 . $1.296 .|
|Anyone find out why the sudden mark down last Friday ?|
|A particularly large sell triggered a load of stop losses maybe?? Thoughts on this bouncing back?|
|Shouldn't they have gone into mid-day auction on such a sharp move?|
|I agree. What was that about? Large sale not published yet? (For those who read in years to come, we just has a 10% spike down, followed by a bit of a bounce as it flushed out small buyers. Edit - the bounce has just reversed.)|
