|Just on NAH again....CEO came across pretty well and the company at the interims (see link below). Doesn't really sound like it deserves to be down here, unless i'm missing something. They may come out with some exceptionals with the full year results some months down the road, but seems to me they have it well covered so I really can't understand the dork who knocked out another 30,000 today.
|Nope, not offhand. Does anyone else, would be useful.|
|BIKWIK, thanks for your insights.
Do you know when in April the MoJ is meant to report?|
|I wrote this for someone on my thread re NAH and coppock and the MACD (an indicator not a stock...lol). If there are any bulls among you it may be of interest:
Re Coppock. Well yes I can understand your observations and at first glance what you say is very fair and reasonable. However, the coppock indicator is one of those technical tools which is probably almost universally revered and respected in the TA community and also by some technically observant fund managers (not many I guess - because most are completely blinkered by the fundamentals - I know that from first hand experience when I worked for a stockbrokers in the 1980's). Anyway I digress.
When the coppock turns up from below zero, people do actually sit up and take notice.
However, it was originally designed to generate major buy signals on the US stockmarket and using monthly charts. So it didn't actually generate that many buy signals, but its track record is pretty good:
So thats all well and good, but on individual stocks, hmm maybe, maybe not. While it was not specifically designed for individual stocks, it definately does work, though clearly not all the time! True nothing is perfect. Note that the buy signals work best when the indicator is very low when it turns up, so a long way below zero.
So, eventually getting back to NAH, coppock has turned up from a long way below zero (just coincidence its 'scooping' up the price) though bear in mind it doesn't necessarily catch the actual bottom, though given this is a weekly as oppposed to a monthly, its more likely going to be nearer. So I cannot ignore what coppock is telling me in this instance. Note also my earlier observations about the chart which I posted, i.e, at the bottom of a wide trend channel, very overextended below the 200 day moving average, the RSI is very oversold on the weekly and bull diverging on the daily across the oversold region too.
Also, because if I am right (i may not be thats true) and we are at the bottom then sentiment must by definitioon be gloomy and some will be selling and throwing in the towel either because they have lost a packet and cannot stand it any longer and fear the worst when the MOJ reports in April on whiplash. I notice there were two fairly big sells yesterday after hours of 75,000 and 85,000 collectively worth around £205,000. Probably an institution which is throwing in the towel on possibly part of their holding I would guess and some further 'panic' selling today i guess.
Fundamentally it stacks up pretty well despite the worries over the MOJ impact. Its pretty much all in the price. If they cut the final div by 50% for instance (thats just a calculated guess by myself) then its still yielding appox 10%. Once again I could be wrong, but when you put it all together it really does look overdone and an attractive buy at these levels. Plus the CEO and CFO bought 30,000 shares in December. If they don't know their company and its prospects then who does. Their timing may not be absolutely spot on, but they are dealing with the stockmarket which is at times irrational and overdoes it on the downside (here i would guess) and the upside.|
|Kam5lc thanks mate|
|Select committee today. Looks like insurers are starting to backtrack on whether the 5k limit for small claims is a good idea.|
|Volume increasing today. chunky trades gone through.|
|See my post 470 when I called this a screaming short (July 2016) since when the shares have nearly halved. I'm opening another short position tomorrow. It's good for another 35% fall|
|You weren't listening!
This can only fall.|
|Bought some NAH yesterday, fall looks well overdone. Though its awaiting reply from MOJ re personal injury claims, thats not due to April and looks to be doing pretty well anyway. Profits and EPS up at int stage. They paid slightly increased int div of 6.35p.
Their policy is to pay two thirds of retained earnings each year, with one third of this at the interim stage. The final payment is expected to be announced in March 2017 for payment in May 2017. So are we looking at a final div of around 12p, so approx 18p for the year. Thats a yield of 13.6% at 132p! If it was only, say 12p, for the year in total thats still a yield of 9%. Here is the chart:

|Yeah, performance in line with the boards expectations, somewhat different i suspect to city expectations. If the numbers weren't in line with board expectations I'd be really concerned.|
|Impressive trading update - not.|

|First4lawyers results were pretty dire, very similar model, only positive I see is that NAH have pulled their TV ads, so revenues are likely to be flat at best, if they have pushed margins they may hit profit numbers, but talk of having to invest in revised models suggests to me they are teeing up for a reduction in profits too this FY.|
|Trading update (pre close) this Friday?|
|Decided too many unknowns in this for me so sold out.|
|I think we'll merge with FRP...in some deal or other. Or even buy them out on the cheap. Makes sense.|
|And another 52 week low|
|I was referring to the +6% intraday move on no news. Quickly faded at close however.|
|How can you call a new 52 week low looking perky? This is going north|
|Looking perky, delayed buy?|
|144.75p at the L2 best ask, today.
|I'm so reassured when the CEO and CFO stick £14k in each! Totally agree with closetinvestor, if they seriously backed they'd be buying a lot more, given this is the lowest price the share has ever been. This could be another Fairpoint by the time results come out. Haven't seen them advertise in months, talk of reducing volumes, rebuilding the model all suggest 2017 will be a tough year.|
|Always good to see a CEO and CFO buy shares. However, just £14K each seems to be more of a token gesture, rather than a clear message to the market of their confidence.|
|Good positive sign when two directors top up. Bargain rating here.|
|What's the essence of the Arden update?|
