|Although TFP is only 22% of sales, last year it contributed 70% of the operating profit. You could say it's more a high tech fibres business with a legacy paper maker tacked on the side...|
|What's so wonderful about this; it's a paper maker on AIM with a small higher tech fibres business tacked on so how come the share price has gone so high? shouldn't complain as was in at just around 500p|
|Would be somewhat positive if we could finish the week on a new all time high.|
|Certainly something seems to be going on, current movement doesn't seem rational but happy nonetheless!|
|Being set up for sale me thinks, local lad to firm|
|Enjoying this. Bought most of my shares at £1|

|Looks like we should get an eod close over 1342, so bought back in today.
Edit, tp 1518 [based on h/staff calc]|
|Price is making a flag or pennant. Support around 1266. Potential tp marked in grey fibs, actual tp depends on breakout price. Not holding|
|I got out today, didnt own that many ,but being newish to the shares business, this has been one of my stronger successes. In general I am taking profit on several of my better beforming shares and cutting those that are idling because I expect a sharp drop around Article 50, then I might choose to get back in to a few, this one included.|
|Let the last lot of shares go a bit earlier today. Good luck all.|
|Yogi, This has been a great ride! I'm in here purely on a chart basis, but I can't help but wonder if there is something fundamental going on in the background.
The tp around 1390 remains.
The price has risen in an acute Rising Wedge and the apex can sometimes coincide with a turn in the price. This is on Friday 13th January.
A small gap has opened in the uptrend. This is a continuation gap [around 1266] and is an excellent place for support during the consolidation phase that is likely to follow in due course. Good luck all.|
|Watching on in quiet amazement!!|
|Sold a few today to fund another trade. :)
Potential turn day here 12/13th Jan.|
|Garbeklb, there is the newish CEO who is an outsider. [Ex-3M]
|I'd be v v surprised if the family would sell out - still heavily involved in running the company.
I like family firms - but one downside is that there is v little takeover activity.|
|hybrasil, thanks for sharing.
Re, tech fibres, rather than t/o could there be a possibility of sharing/cooperation/merger?
There still seems to be regular buying, as though someone is building a position £10k+ at a time. It's been going on since the new year.
We look set to confirm the new target price today, if it can close above 1275. If we do eventually reach 1390 there are some new higher targets that will come into view.|
|The company is very intertwined with the croppers but something must be causing this exceptional price rise. I know Technical Fibre products excite.
The possibility of Mark Cropper selling exists but a very hard thing to do.
The Dad was a former Lord Lieutenant of cumbria and they have such long links to the area.
I know Garbetklb that is is high but I find it hard to sell any more shares.|
|Very little opportunity of a takeover bearing in mind the Cropper family holding of 40%+.
Price is looking a bit peaky to me.|
|hybrasil, I have looked again at chart. Fridays eod price is 10p below confirming the new target. I have calculated this new target price at minimum 1390.
We need an eod close above 1275 [the prior target] to make the new target valid.
Since you have been here a while and know the co, is there any possibility there could be a takeover?|
|hybrasil, I need to check over the weekend, but think on todays close we could be confirming a new target price approx 1430. [edit, new target will be 1390, due to calc error, see next post]
Have a good weekend. :)|
|hybrasil, ask me in 25 minutes!|
