|Thanks for that link. There is a recurring theme to the broker notes. I sold out last yr as the share price looked ahead of itself to me , then bought back this yr into weakness. Long term holding is most peoples policy here , but sometimes I cannot resist taking profits. £5 would tempt me again..|
|Could this cash-rich AIM stock wipe the floor with Rolls-Royce Holding plc?
|Solid not spectacular. That will do. I like the last bit;
We continue to have a large market share in the UK but the curbing of repair and renewal spending by the NHS was very noticeable in the first two months' trading of the new financial year. It would seem that refurbishment in the education sector too has seen reticence in this period, which is uncharacteristic. However, the UK represents only about a third of the business and the doubts over the economy in the weeks after the "Brexit" referendum seem to be lessening.
Moreover, far more important is the positive effect of a weakened sterling on both the competitiveness of our offering around the globe and on margins.
I remain optimistic for the coming year.
|Happy to hold,
Nice aim isa core holding, worth every penny.|
|Results day :))
|Yes very good call.
I consistently underestimate the multiple people are willing
to pay for JHD, however it is quality.|
|Your 460 prophecy just came true ; where next , Master?|
|Not quite there , but nice close to the week at a 6 month high.|
|Solid interims, reckon could go as high as 460|
|Pre-Close Trading Statement
James Halstead plc, the commercial flooring manufacturer and distributor, is providing the following trading update ahead of its final results for the year to 30 June 2016.
In the Chairman's statement announced on 31 March 2016, it was reported that the first half year profit before tax was 7.5% ahead of the prior year comparative but early trading in the second half was challenging. Nevertheless, the Chairman expressed he had every expectation of continued progress in the second half year.
During the majority of the year Sterling traded at a higher level than the prior year presenting challenges to our overseas turnover, which is in excess of 60% of total turnover. Just before the year end, late in June this reversed drastically, which bodes well for the new financial year.
Trading through to 30 June 2016 has been solid and profit before tax for the full year will be ahead of last year, in line with market expectations and at the highest level in the Company's history.
|If news is good companies usually can't wait to get it out so I hope there's no reason they'd delay it. Tipped in the Mail by Chris Hutchinson of the Unicorn Fund this morning so there may be an uptick on Monday so don't be misled.|
|Thanks . They must be playing cards close to their chest!|
I spoke to the company secretary at the end of last week and understand there is usually a trading update at end of July with the half year results in September.|
|Quite a few smaller aim stocks have bounced since the lies of the remain camp impending
Calamities have not come true, yet?!|
|Can't find the date of the next update on the company website ; 16% bounce is quite impressive in last 3 weeks.|
|I believe we are having a run up prior to the next trading update. Yesterday's volume was the second highest in the last 12 months. Just my opinion.|
|....Or maybe not , as some 415 buys have gone through. The MMs looking for a bit cut again though ; quoting a 5% spread.|
|"Amateur chartist" is a tautology :-)
JHD is relatively illiquid so sometimes these apparent share price movements are just noise. Looks like yesterday's little rise might just have been one.|
|The present weakness in the share is an opportunity to top up. I am a very amateur chartist and once a month I assess all my shares and the only share I own at the moment which is not overbought is JHD|
|This is a classic long term buy and hold. Patience will be rewarded.
|I so hope so. I have been holding these for a year nearly and it has not been glorious.|
|Sp starting to look healthy again today , slow climb again?|
|One of a few of my holdings to be blue after today's vote. Forex may be good for exports but suspect it will be complicated here. I traded out some for a small profit as I can't resist some bigger bargains elsewhere.|
|Nope, need to check.|
