lundhousegreen: Results day :))
lundhousegreen: 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.
trigger blade: I suppose if you're looking for spectacular share price growth, choosing a share that's produced profit growth for 30 consecutive years and with a P/E close to 20 may not be the right strategy. If anything, it's doing well to hang on close to £3.
lundhousegreen: Trading "solid". Profits within expectations range, flooring turnover down 2%. Hope all this has already been factored into share price as it's already 25% off the highs of the year.
gripfit: looks like it's getting ready for a profit warning to me. 500 mill mkt cap could easy handle reduction to 450, that's 10 % , which equates to £2.25 share price possibly .
alter ego: I agree but the other problem is that once the special div has been paid, the share price is likely to adjust down since there's nothing left to keep it high. See IND as a recent example.
westcountryboy: And one of the problems with an inflated share price is that 'special' dividends become less special. A 7p special div on top of a likely 8.75p total div only gives a yield of just over 5%, which is good but not great since it's three years since the last one. They could have afforded much more, given that cash is at £52m and the pension deficit has shrunk to £9.4m - a wasted opportunity I fear.
gripfit: and moving results date now aswell,,,,,,,i dont like that's a good company , and has done well, but that means its share price can afford a good pull back.
bda3490: I cant see them announcing on 29 March Its Good Friday !!! I think Gripfit has a point about trouble it 3s 1. At AGM is tough 2. Yesterday 7-8% down 3. Interims will obviously be OK but there was no mention of NOW I think JHD will struggle to beat the full year but heck they are nearly 50% ahaed of 2008 in terms of profit - who else is. And the share price was 137p then (2 spilts) vs 289 - 200% up and with good div.
nehpets81: I think that statement has probably shaken off a lot of the people riding the crest of this wave. It sounds like the time of record profits every update and easy money are over for JHD but this is still a solidly profitable company with no debt, a big pile of cash and an enviable market position and rep. The share price is back down to close to what I would consider a sensible level. It will be interesting to see what happens if that "modest increase in profits" doesn't materialise at the half year results.
