|I think that is the way to look at the chart, it is best to take a longer timeframe here. The last two years have seen a trading range between 36p to 48p, not expecting fireworks soon, but a gradually improving picture throughout 2017 as restructuring benefits feed through.
Fortunately for me I was out cycling yesterday, so was blissfully unaware of any whipsawing action. Ignorance can be a positive sometimes, but glad to see you have bought back cfro.|
|In my embarrassment i feel a bit stupid in reporting that i unfortunately got stopped-out yesterday when the share price fell below 40p. I was, of course, very surprised that this happened. I never expected the price to fall like that when the results were as anticipated.
Clearly i was a victim of a market whip-saw seeing the buying that has come in late yesterday afternoon and this morning. So the only logical move was to buy back in again today, at a higher price.
I think volatility has been something that investors have had to endure for the last years or so now, but worth posting up a 5 year chart below that shows the price movements in a wider context and therefore does not look so ugly when viewed in a shorter time frame:|
|After my post yesterday there was continuing heavy volume, hard to tell if buy or sell transactions, but look like buys to me. This morning has seen a continuation of this healthy volume.
Now that the directors are out of a closed period,I wonder if they will start buying again after they were so keen late last year.|
|A rather large buy just gone through 500k at 41p.|
|Happy enough with today's results and all to play for in 2017. There was some useful commentary on 'recent significant client wins' for the Health Division, so looking positive so far.|
|Agree cfro you have summed up the results very well.
As expected with dividend maintained and with all restructuring completed, will have to settle down now and look forward to seeing the benefits during 2017.|
|Results as expected. All restructuring costs are in these results and restructuring complete so going forward there should be no more costs of this nature.
All depends now on whether they can get Grayling performing and Huntsworth Health needs to continue on it's growth track.|
|A quick read of results and very good.Returned to profitability|
|Any ideas who the heavy seller is in HNT ? Old mutual already got out it appears but despite the good trading update, the seller remains in control.|
|Thanks for that snippet of information cfro :-)|
|Yes there is an impressive list of directors now sitting on the board.
There was a small piece in yesterdays Sunday Times about Derek Mapp who is Chairman and independent Non-Exec. He is up for a NED award.
He is a serial entrepreneur and is involved in a lot of businesses (mainly the pub industry). He said that Huntsworth was "a mess" when he took over and his first job was finding a good CEO. "Restructuring is now complete."|
|With results due tomorrow I thought an old link about the history of Paul Taaffe CEO would be well worth a read for investor here who haven't seen it before.
I like an investment opportunity where there is a new management team with a proven track record and that are in place to restructure and turnaround a company. As we know all of the restructuring has been completed now, and as a bonus we saw all main directors buying late last year at a price only a tad lower than is possible today.|
|Last trading day before results due out tomorrow.Expect sustained buying today.|
|Results due on Tues 21st March.|
|EPS estimates were increased 6% after the positive update, brokers often like to leave room for company results to come in a little ahead.
The main interest will be the outlook statement and following RNS releases later this year, now that the the last problem division Grayling has now been restructured.
HNT have 48% of revenue from the USA, which is a nice position to be in at this time imo.
Looking forward to reading the results report on Monday.|
|Obviously the consensus has now moved on. So, it was true, but no longer may be true. In other words, the better news could well be priced in.|
|'The Group traded well through Q4, led again by strong growth at Huntsworth Health. As a result of this, together with continued favourable exchange rates, management expects the Group's full year results to be ahead of consensus*.'|
|Er, by definition, results cannot be 'expected' to be ahead of consensus....!|
|Yes very cheap considering that they have already flagged they will be good results|
|Yes just 3 trading days til results which are expected to be ahead of consensus.|
|Sp ticking back up again.
Results due 21st March.|
|Some very large trades over two day's,,,,,buys or sells ?|
|This has got about to break out written all over it|
|May well be right interceptor, just nice to see the share price moving north to end the week :-)|
|Large buy of 485k at 46p this morning, larger institutional investor have had time now since the update to go through the numbers and decide to build positions?
A bit of idle speculation on a quiet day really, buy it often works that way.|
