Crickey this share is hard work - it neither falls nor rises in the last 6 months - so which way is it going to break... eventually

andrew - I think lowlights is probably more appropriate over the last 6 months... KCom posts declines as transformation takes hold - HTTP://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/2016/11/30/tips-and-ideas/share-tips/kcom-posts-declines-as-transformation-takes-hold-Qlzk1NSxBDjH2TzMWZAXkJ/article.html Having netted £90m from the sale of its national fibre network, KCom (KCOM) wasted no time in streamlining its business, consolidating its brands, expanding the regional network that it retained and shifting its focus towards higher-margin offerings. Lower sales and nearly flat costs drove adjusted cash profits down 14 per cent to £32m. Comparable sales fell across KCom's three divisions, and underlying cash profits only rose in the unaffected Hull and East Yorkshire business, partly due to a one-off supplier credit. More positively, management extended its regional fibre network to 104,000 premises, increasing total connections to 33,000. It expects to reach 150,000 premises or two-thirds of its customer base by December 2017. Underlying revenue slid 9 per cent in the enterprise segment due to flagging sales of older network products and a large early payment from key customer HM Revenue & Customs. Nonetheless, concentrating on more lucrative cloud and integration services helped it win work with Bupa, Shoosmiths and others. Management has ceased investing in the third division, which serves small- and medium-sized businesses outside the group's heartland. The downside of KCom's hefty spending was that its investing cash outflow ballooned by more than half to about £26m. Broker finnCap trimmed its forecasts and now expects adjusted pre-tax profits of £37.3m, giving EPS of 5.9p, down from £47.9m and 7.5p in FY2016. IC VIEW: KCom's shares are up 27 per cent on our buy tip (85p, 26 February 2015). They now trade on 18 times forecast earnings, which looks punchy for a company in transition. Downgrade to hold. NOTE: Share price at the time of the above article was 108p. PE is still 15x forecast earnings even at current share price of 89.75p

All, I am new to this one. I was wondering if anyone could share any highlights over the last 6 months. I shall of course read up too.

Also odd because FL BlackRock UK Smaller Companies Equity Index (Aquila C) EP had an long worth £2.4m at Dec 2016 So is this just a hedge in case there is a global crash?

Toffee: That was 2 weeks ago = to 2,5m shares. At this rate, 350,000 traded a day, we should be cleared within a week or so. By the way Raysor. I spell it the same way as you do. I T, lol.

Bit of both, LOL Under the heading: the UK's little known gems. Interesting option for income. Ambitions to bolster low growth operations with enterprise data, cloud and mobile services. 5-5.5% yield Challenges. Failure to deliver growth from newer services could seriously limit capacity to continue to increase dividends and would most likely trigger an investor exodus. The piece coupled KCOM with Manx Telecom.

Not recovered as quickly as I had thought likely (see 9014) but looks as if recent activity is offering a support platform. We will see.

For those of you who follow Salty's investments you'all know that I like companies that are established, good track record in paying dividends, attractive to potential suitors and throwing off a lot of cash. KCOM has arrived on my radar and I like the look of this. Sure The market didn't like the surprise in November but management has explained its reasoning and I quite like the new direction they're taking. The Divi looks safe for the next couple of years and I'm more than happy to take 6% on my money when I can finance at 2%. Buy. Salty.

I'm thinking this looks like a little bargain here, nice little dividend at 6% that is well covered by bread and butter income plus the small chance of a new year takeover, one on my watch list for the new year ! R2

Looks like the bottom's falling out of this and even my 85p target looks optimistic. I'm not overly familiar with this company though I've been aware of them as an income stock for many years. The last results don't seem to contain anything overly scary so for any more experienced holders, what am I missing?

EBITDA shows how much cash is being generated from operations before working capital/capex movements Basic info for all companies and all investors

It's not good PR, to my mind, for a company established this long even to speak of EBITDA, something I associate with jam tomorrow AIM co0mpanies. But I just had a look at the accounts and they look perfectly satisfactory. Think I'll put a toe in the water.

DAVE OF DEVON 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.
