Looking terrifically strong and set for more rises - now I can only buy just 1k maximum at 31p, whilst I can sell at least 100,000 at 30p.

Does look strong. Can sell £10k at over 29p now if desired.

No wonder we all had no problem offloading this week! Still, I am happy with my weighting here now and even happier to see Mr Gervais adding. Just a case of sitting tight now and waiting for further contract news.

The 31p buyer must have known about this morning's RNS :o)) Great to see Gervais Williams' Miton Trust buying almost another 500,000 shares, and going above 4% with 1.43m in total: Http://www.investegate.co.uk/petards-group-plc--peg-/rns/holding-s--in-company/201703170700087478Z/

Nice 29,800 share buy at 31p near the close - a full 2p above the 29p published offer price.

Likewise, crazycoops, the overweightedness led to the desire to reduce! Or sell all in my case. A profit banked like that is worthy.

Seeing as we are all being so decent and open, I top sliced another 20% tranche today. Will sit and wait now with the balance. I think PEG will likely rise again when there is further contract news and it's still a decent growth story that could easily double over the next 12 months but I had become quite overweight in this microcap which was not sensible risk management.

Cheers, Bones, and thanks to all for their constructive contributions to this board. And special congratulations to tiltonboy, who was here before most of us and is still here after most of us. For those still holding, it was surprisingly easy to sell my shares yesterday and I did not move the bid price materially, so there is clearly still support at these levels.

Well played EC. Thank you for your detailed header which I found very useful at the time I invested in the 18p to 20p region. I did sell a small proportion at 29p and 31p when it spiked a while back but bought those back at 26p area on a dip. I sold the lot, as stated at the time, on results day at 29p. So very pleased with the operation!Again, thanks EC and also to all the regular posters here who showed how to conduct themselves in a public forum :)

Well done to everyone that ran it as long as they did, and were handsomely rewarded. With so many supporters having exited, and in some decent size, it begs the question of who has been picking them up. Perhaps an AIM fund or brokers running AIM portfolios, and have been able to buy in good size. I have too much history with the stock to accurately value the shares, but it does feel fully valued. I will also be looking for the exit on April 6th if the share price is still around these levels.

On reflecting further I sold out altogether today, nice company but I wanted to bolster my income stocks and I'm not sure how long there'll be buyers around if there's no contract news. I'll be back at some point I'm sure but a great return in a short holding period does it for me...something for the next etc

Somebody's knocking a few chunks out last couple of days for whatever reason. Either chelverton or downing no doubt, hopefully just a bit of rebalancing!

I'm with you rivaldo on the need for PEG to invest in the business/technology here. The critical point with CCTV is that this is a fast moving space, every man and his dog is doing IP CCTV now and while there is a certain moat that comes from being rail certified and a known and trusted supplier to teh industry, this is by no means a sufficient competitive advantage. Petards will need to innovate to maintain/grow their business over the coming years.

It is indeed a perennial topic - and one with no right or wrong answer! Simply personal preference, and also personal financial circumstance. A dividend might also attract certain institutional investors who can only invest in dividend-paying stocks. I'm sure that PEG will at the appropriate time start paying dividends. I would simply rather they grew the business as fast as possible within cash flow limits.

Point taken Rivaldo, it's a perennial discussion topic, I agree with you in principle but the argument arises from the Perception that they have surplus FCF after the investment needs of the business and the relatively small bolt on acquisitions they've made thus far. I would prefer if they can find a good use of Capital but from the last RNS they appear not to have done so thus far and rightly or wrongly the cost of the creation of distributable reserves exercise gave shareholders the impression that dividends were on the agenda. No clarity was given on the topic yesterday hence me reducing my position as most of my growth plays have an income element "in for free" Cheers

Personally I prefer PEG to reinvest their capital into new, improved products and marketing, which would bring about greater growth and potentially a share price two or three times the current level given the global opportunities in rail, electronic countermeasures and ANPR. Beaufort have increased their target price to 34p: "Petards Group (PEG.L, 28.54p) – Speculative Buy The AIM quoted developer of advanced security and surveillance systems, reports its audited results for the year ended 31 December 2016. Revenues rose 17% to £15.3 million (2015: £13.1 million), while gross margin up to 36.3% from 35.2% in 2015, leading to an operating profit increase to £1,095,000 (2015: £935,000 profit) and profit after tax £910,000 (2015: £765,000 profit). Having generated £1 million of operating cash inflows (2015: £1.2 million), cash at 31 December 2016 was £2.3 million (31 Dec 2015: £2.5 million) with the Group holding no bank debt. It’s closing order book was £20 million (2015: £16 million), having grown by £8 million in the second half of 2016 with orders received from Siemens Mobility, Bombardier Transportation, Greater Western Rail, Hitachi Rail Europe and the MOD. Exports increased by 57% to £5.3 million and now comprise over one third of Group revenues. The acquisition of QRO Solutions successfully completed in April 2016 for net cash consideration of £239,000, contributing £78,000 to EBITDA before acquisition expenses. Our view: In light of the strength of the Group's order book, with some £12 million expected to be shipped and taken to revenue during 2017, together with on-going discussions with both new and existing customers for further projects, the market should remain confident about Petards’ prospects for 2017. Importantly, an improved gross margin also reflects the quality of work being undertaken. On this basis, Beaufort has now upgraded its 2017E and 2018E earnings forecasts, to 2.2p and 2.4p respectively, implying P/E multiples of just 13.4x and 12.3x. Year-end net cash should also build out to over £1m this year, even though working capital and capital expenditure demands remain high. Improving visibility now suggests the valuation gap with larger peers in the support services sector should close, taking it to around a 15.5x, or 34p a share, for the current year. Beaufort retains its Speculative Buy recommendation on the shares."

Yes, I would have been tempted to hold on to the full amount if a divi had been declared but the lack thereof was a clincher. And as you say, the liquidity today helped. I have actually planned a "5 way accumulator" based on this top slice - SOM being the next on the betting slip. It would be even more spooky if we made the same moves - which I will reveal on Twitter as we go along :)

Hi cc In the interests of disclosure I've unloaded half my PEG and like you rotated into SOM, liquidity has been unprecedented here today and I took advantage of it as like you I was heavily overweight but would have rolled on if a maiden dividend or Acq had been flagged. I've retained a slug of stock here but at a much more comfortable level given how small the free float is in £note terms. Spooky coincidence...

In the interests of disclosure, I have top sliced c20% of my PEG holding today for a 36% profit. I suspect more contract wins and/or acquisition news will lead to further share price increases during 2017 but in the meantime we might see some drift. I was also too overweight PEG given its microcap status. I have used the proceeds to top up on my SOM holding, which reports tomorrow.

Having weighed up various aspects following today's numbers I have decided to book my profits of 50% since I started here in October 16. I feel I have done well and have other opportunities to use the cash.Today's numbers do not persuade me to stay on balance although I would not be uncomfortable holding a smaller amount. I just feel the profit made is sufficiently good to take elsewhere.My earlier comments still stand. Overall I think the capitalised costs have massaged the profit increase a little and there was no talk of a dividend. Good luck to all.I will keep it on the watchlist in case the situation changes at a later date.

I would like to see some more scale through acquisitions if they can identify a good opportunity, ahead of a dividend.
