Remarkable effect on share price. This inking-in was expected, confirming last month's announcement, but now includes the contract value.
Share price has doubled in 6 months.
Shares go XD tomorrow morning, for a dividend of 5.75p|
|glasshalfull: Funny how the quiet threads often correlate to excellent companies & performance ;-)
Great statement from SSP today and delighted to have bought into the story 6/7 months ago.
WHI consider the "opportunity to be substantial" for Solid State.
"Final contract terms are expected to be agreed by 26 July 2014. It is currently anticipated that Solid's Steatite business will be supplying initial products to the MoJ by the year end. Further quantities are then expected to be supplied, based on a minimum contract award for a three year period. The contract is not expected to have a significant impact in the current financial year as most deliveries are expected to take place in FY16 and FY17.
We have put our forecasts and target price Under Review (with material upside implications) pending a further announcement and clarity regarding the likely quantum of this agreement. We believe the opportunity to be substantial. We expect a material increase in the share price short term and retain a Buy recommendation."
|m.t.glass: The rule change allowing this to be bought within an ISA comes in on Monday morning. The 5.25p per share divi is available to anyone buying ahead of the market close on Tuesday.
Obviously it is only of benefit if the share price stays up and subsequently goes up enough to recoup the capital outlay or make a gain (after whatever dip happens on Wednesday, if any).|
|m.t.glass: 2 weeks away from XD for a worthwhile 5.25p dividend. That's 2.2% of current share price.
And I presume that this is one of the AIM stocks that will become eligible for inclusion in a sharedealing ISA account from two days before then, when the ISA rules change.|
|ceohunter: Solid State's (LON:SSP) range of rugged computers, specialist electronic components and battery power solutions may not seem a recipe for success in straitened times, but its share price says different.
|jaykaytee: the price seems to have shot up over the past 2 weeks. Horrendous spread though.
It's been a few years since the share price has reached these giddy heights.
Results are out soon. I wonder if somebody knows something. Anybody got any news or views?|
|jaykaytee: Someone bought £3000 worth of shares this morning, probably for the upcoming dividend. Moved the share price up nicely.|
|moosie101: Hi JayKayTee
Not much to talk about really. Same old usual lot of small sales between results announcements driving the price down.
The purchase price of RZ looked a little high, but hopefully overhead savings should make it more economical long-term.
Personally, if the interim profits here equal last year then I would expect the share price to move upwards. However, with the various purchases I am looking for increased profits and so another jump in share price (say to 60p).
I am in the middle of doing an analysis of the whole sector but if I finish it I'll most likely post it over on the Fool as there's only you and me here!!! However, early signs suggest SSP still the best value.
|moosie101: SSP went ex-div on 20th July so essentially we've seen no drop in the share price to reflect the 2p dividend!
Maybe we might see 60p soon then...|
I am also looking to hold on until it goes ex-div. With regards to the share price, anything over 50p and i'm well happy.
