|toffeeman: Over the last 6 months the share price has dropped 20% :)|

Thanks.The share price had been falling well-prior to the announcement but I imagine some folk had been taking profit as they did not expect further rise in the share price It is not generally regarded as a "growth" share but one with a consistent substantial dividend. I had considered adding today but the share price seems to have fallen below support at about 110 and on previous occasions the falls have been considerable , only for it to recover as quickly as it has fallen.
As you say this is a long term hold mainly dividend orientated.|
|dogwalker: Pity the share price isn't !|
|ganthorpe: Is there anything going on here?
I see the Director changes and a strong rise in the share price for no obvious reason.
I have held KCOM for several years and it pays a good divi but no growth.|

Major shareholders & share composition
|rcturner2: Yes, very good news, and I guess part of the reason why the share price held up well against general market falls.|
|lord gnome: So now we know why the share price rose on Friday! Nice deal. In the books for £48 millions and sold for £90. Cuts debt to £13 millions and secures our dividends. It will be interesting to see how the market reacts this morning.|
|lord gnome: Results out... yawn. Divi up as expected, but nothing there to move the share price. Back to sleep I think.|
|rcturner2: It is not that unusual. I have been able to buy Phoenix at much lower prices than present and it still has a dividend ahead of KCOMs even after a 30% rise in the share price. Berkeley is another with a well covered yield that is more than KCOMs.|
|speedsgh: Agree, KCOM does seem a boring, relatively safe hold with very attractive, steady income. However the share price has now gone through the bottom of the rising trend channel on the long term (5yr) chart. It's been posting lower highs/lows for the past 12 months + the downtrend has accelerated since the end of July. I don't currently hold + unfortunately I wasn't around yesterday morning when the share price spiked down. I am going to wait + see if this retreats further before taking a position. GLTA|
