|A £24m contract is not be sniffed at. Plus another £3m for more student accommodation since then.
Things do seem to be looking up for NMD.|
|The first one is just a couple of miles from where I live, so I'll be keeping an eye on progress.|
|We've won a couple of contracts...
Moyle Family - 48.0% (not in public hands)
William Morris Settlement - 8.4% (not in public hands and Moyle family have first rights on any sale)
Other directors -2.6%
Charlton - 6.1% (increasing)
Capita IRG 5.2% (held for at least 5 years)
Quite tightly held. The delayed 25k sell is telling. It seems we've found a few sellers at the psychological 200 area. I don't see why Charlton won't keep soaking them up.|
|Yes thought so, Good to see him buying at the current level as value must be a lot higher I'd have thought.|
|Mr Charlton at it again.
|A couple of very interesting trades. A 10k buy at 194.84 yesterday and a delayed 25k at 193.0 which is reported as a sell but I think it's more likely it's a buy.
I make no sense of it at all and begin to wonder if there is one party acquiring all this stock.|
|Closing in on £2....|
|Great thanks for the chart cc 👍|
|hmm. Another buy for which someone had to pay the full ask on a 10 pt spread. Good start to the year|
|Another decent sized buy gone through pushing the price higher again.
It seems to me that as FTSE rises, it is enabling someone to release cash to buy into NMD.
Finally managed to paste a 10 year chart.|
|Yep and will be for quite a while I suspect.|
|A couple of weeks on and the price rise has paused not surprisingly. MM's are happy to quote me well inside the inside the spread to sell 10k shares telling me there's still demand out there for stock.|
|And still the buying continues. Lovely jubbly|
|The "construction" sector (as opposed to house-building) has woken up. SFR (steel construction) is flying too.|
|I haven't seen momentum like this for many many years. Very positive in my view.|
|Joined in with a few. Emphasis on construction in the Autumn Statement will hopefully result in an increase in work.|
|Good to see him adding to his holding.. Posted this before but for anyone new here's his background.
Mr. Thomas William George Charlton, also known as Tom, MA served as Managing Director of Merrill Lynch Investment Managers from 1998 to August 2002. Mr. Charlton has in-depth investment knowledge together with broad experience and interest in the smaller companies sector. He served as an Executive Chairman of Pinnacle Staffing Group PLC from September 1, 2008 to April 7, 2011. He served as Chairman of Feedback PLC until June 1, 2016. He has been a Non-Executive Deputy ...|
|Rns explains buying. I trust he's close to the business and sees current share price as a bargain|
|I'm a bit later to this one than most here, but with legacy deadweight being dealt with and order book very healthy, plus the resumption of dividend, I'd argue the share price is only just underway, 10 year chart gives a good perspective IMV
|Yes job vacancies in all areas can only bode well unless half the staff have walked out :)) but I doubt that if everything I've read is anything to go by they are very engaged with all employees.|
|This is turning into a truly excellent trade and it's moving up again.
It looks to me like all these 10k trades that are going through are sells but we continue to find buyers to soak them up. Given how tightly held this stock is the 10k sells can't go on much longer as they have to come from somewhere.
I can't fathom the buying though and what's driving it - there's always a reason but I'd love to know what it is.
I took a look at their twitter feed and they appear to be very focused on recruitment, so one assumes they've got lots of work|
|Moving on up :))|
|Another nice buy at full price, with bid ticking up.|
|I believe the trust is buying them from Mrs Moyle. I did some research on this some time ago which I can't find to hand but I think this Mrs Moyle is the widow of the founder.
I assume she doesn't need the money and is releasing them as and when the trust has dividend income to buy them and conveniently within her capital tax allowance so she has no tax to pay on the transaction. She's still got around 225,000 shares left so at the speed the trust is buying them it's going to take a long time before she runs out. If I'm correct the family will need to consider some additional tax planning to avoid inheritance tax. (with £360k worth of shares I'm not sure why the family don't set up yet another trust)
More interesting perhaps is the impact of this affect if the company really does start performing appropriately and ramps the dividend back up. I am hoping for a minimum of a final dividend of 1.5p but believe it is likely to be more.
If ever the family do absorb Mrs Moyle's shares the remaining free float is not large|
