Sold today, good profit. GLA.
Looks about right on 15.5 PE- Just a divi stock now with long term value after recent hike
Quite a lot to wade through in the results. Underlying EPS 28p and a positive outlook with 135,000 new customers. Reduced liabilty in defined benefits pension. ROCE for direct marketing of 117% ! They appear to have got last years rveenue costs wrong in the table. Anyway, someone likes the outlook, the shares are flying.

Edison Note. Sorry busy at moment, will post more later.
Wonder if WHI released a new note? That's a pretty big target increase so I'd like to know what's behind it - got to have raised the forecasts surely, and by quite a bit. In any case, someone's obviously keen.....
Thanks missed this as i was travelling yesterday.
4imprint Group: WH Ireland raises target price from 375p to 480p maintaining a buy recommendation.
Bought in, modestly.
A positive note from Edison on the back of the trading update.
IMS announcement for 7th Nov. Major price movement after close today trade at 16:30 £3.40, at 16:32 £3.52 then at 16:34 £3.57
What happened??!!
260p looks a good entry level if it heads back down there.
Sold out my last batch of these this morning after holding around 7k at one point. I have faith that the management can continue to deliver good growth and profits for the company, but sadly I have no faith that the share price will ever reflect the true value here. Which I believe to be somewhere well north of 300p. And my fears are that it might only take one 'less than positive' set of results or trading statement for the share price to return to the sub 240p levels again (or lower). Meaning FOUR will get punished for the (hypothetical) bad times, but without ever having been rewarded for the good times. So I promised myself I'd sell up if these ever got close to the 300p barrier again, after having missed out twice in the past due to hesitation (June 2011 and Mar 2012. The latter was a huge 2 day spike that just screamed out to be top-sliced. Oh well, hopefully a lesson learnt) Best of luck to all holders, as I would like to see those with more patience than me rewarded by FOUR one day reaching the fabled Utopia that exists in the region of a 350p share price. I held for 2+ years at an average of around 245p, so I have no complaints overall. And if FOUR's story remains the same then I'll be happy to buy back in should the share price return to the silly sub 250p levels again. Good luck all, IMO, DYOR etc.
7% fall yesterday and no comment! A buying chance? "Another group of shareholders have registered disapproval at the pay and bonuses of the directors. Nearly 25% of them voted against the remuneration proposals for directors at today's AGM" Also 12% voted against re-election of Ian Brindle as Director

Back to £6-5 in 2 years
Good luck to all holders as i sold out today when i got my £3 target thanks to the midas recommendation yesterday and todays subsequent bounce.
12:37 MIDAS UPDATE: 4imprint makes T-shirts with profit written all over them
Further to the announcement on 16 February 2012 in respect of the proposed sale of Brand Addition Limited (together with its subsidiaries) and Kreyer Promotion Service GmbH (together "Brand Addition") to H.I.G Milan UK Bidco Limited and B270 Vermogensverwaktung GmbH and the subsequent approval of the sale by Shareholders on 14 March 2012, 4imprint Group plc ("4imprint") now confirms that all of the pre-completion conditions, as set out in a circular to Shareholders dated 20 February 2012, have been satisfied. Consequently, 4imprint is pleased to announce that it has today completed the sale of Brand Addition for an aggregate consideration of GBP24.00 million (on a cash and debt free basis, and with a normalised level of working capital).
Here`s my interpretation of current and future estimated earnings at £2.83 share price. Year EPS PEG DPS Current 21.15 n/a 14p 2012E 23.1 1.45 15.33p 2013E 28.7 0.51 16.1p Currently TDW estimate PEG and P/E are in line with the sector although divi is higher. Divi at nearly 5% should (I repeat should ;) ) proved good share price support when coupled with the 2013 potential growth IMO. £5m cash but does have pension deficit (although there are many companies running pension deficits) Director options at £3.00 (I think) so obviously the board see some upside and some director buys. Personally I think the high 2012 PEG and being in line with the sector would make them a sell and buy back in six months time, but the divi, future growth, restructuring and board interest makes me feel like holding to see how the news flow goes over the next year. Not sure how I`ll feel if it drops back to 2quid this summer though, and all IMO! O/T Apprentice was interesting, wonder how those lot would get on managing a portfolio of shares. :)
Looks OK. I was very dubious for a while but imo future growth looks good, so I've stayed in tho' it's not done much in the last year... (I got some @ 235p)
napoleon 14th
Great volume of buys and guess what £3 to buy, lets hope it continues very near my sell point.
Paul, DTG is a great find, well done. Shall monitor and invest. Also have a look over my favourite undervlued shares, WTM, RHL and SHFT. WTM is my fave as Peter Gwyllenhammer, who has invested.
