|I suspect that was a swap between market makers at mid-price to balance their books. The offer price actually went up slightly after the swap. The old horse is still running.|
|Whoever sold 250k shares this afternoon obviously doesn't agree. .....|
|If NXR were running at Cheltenham, we'd all be shouting "Come on Norcros" as the old donkey staggered round the course.
Come on Norcros - you can do it!|
|quiet here isn`t it - a bit like the share price patience certainly required with nxr !
|A few years ago Norcros were really talking up Johnson Tiles, almost as the saviour of the company, saying what huge growth potential Johnson´s has and now look at its sorry state of affairs.|
|There's a bit more detail about what may be going on at Johnson Tiles in this article - hxxp://www.tilezine.co.uk/johnson-tiles-shed-90-jobs-restructuring-move/
In summary, a short-term reduction in capacity and an increase in imported tiles whilst changes are made to the format and size of the tiles produced.|
|There's bad news for some Norcros employees, but it looks as though some significant cost cutting is underway at Johnson Tiles - see hxxp://stokesentinel.co.uk/90-jobs-to-be-axed-at-johnson-tiles/story-30186772-detail/story.html
There should be a trading update on either April 6th or 13th, so we should know more then. However, turnover at JT has been falling for the past couple of years, but it returned to profit last year following significant efficiency improvements.|
|I sold out 2 years ago and I haven't missed holding it or ever felt being out was a mistake|
|Jeez Owning this share takes a lot of patience :o(|
|Cool! Thanks AB.|
|Cristal Grip has been launched in France and is on sale at Leroy Merlin. Here's their YouTube video showing how it works (it's in French, but you get the idea from the pictures): http://youtube.com/watch?v=ftc_ueYfCiQ
Here are the various products and prices: leroymerlin.fr/v3/search/search.do?intuitiontodo=newSearchAllSite&facet=PRODUCT&keyword=Cristal+grip|
|It looks as though Miton are buying again.
On January 12th 2017 they were down to 6,730,804 shares, but following today's announcement they're up to 7,031,368 shares.
I wonder if they were selling to meet redemptions from their funds or whether they've changed their mind again about Norcros. Last March, after a period of buying, they had 10,672,946 shares, but have been slowly reducing since about April 2016.|
|EC - If Buying or Selling over a period of time over many percentage points of holdings in a company which could have a material effect on the share price no RNS is needed until the completion of the share trading, only have to keep the stock exchange advised.
Satnadard Life gone from 44m to 3.7m shares which is more than the 1 for 10 otherwise 44m would have gone to 4.4m shares.|
|Thanks, Solrei, but what a stupid way of presenting the information.|
|Always read to the bottom! Thanks Solrei.|
|It's all in the RNS. Bottom right hand corner|
|I think they've accidentally used their pre-consolidation figures when referring to the 44 million.
According to Norcros' website, on June 30th 2016 they owned 7.26% of the company (see www.norcros.com/investor-centre/major-shareholders/ ) and since they now own 6.1% according to the RNS they can't have sold 40 million shares (1% of the company is around 600,000 shares).|
|How can Standard Life have gone from more than 44m shares to less than 4m in one holdings RNS?|
|divi now payed|
|Last year there was an update in April... but you probably were looking for something earlier. Seems it is a waiting game here for now.|
|This share always seems cheap, know they have some debt and pension issues but my understanding is this is reducing. Surely at some point this has to go up? Anyone any idea when the next update is due? Just had a look at historical and there has previously been an update in February.|
|Thanks Andrew B for the explanation.

|Edison gave a not on 12/12. Norcros is a client.
The forecasts in my post above are not HSBC's or Barclays'. Rather, they are the "consensus forecast" based upon the forecast provided by all of analysts covering Norcros (I have share dealing accounts with HSBC and Barclays, and details about consensus forecasts are provided as part of the service).
I think the analysts presently covering Norcros are Numis and Canaccord Genuity, but there might be a third (possibly Edison - but I don't know if they count as they are paid to provide analysis).|
