Another 25k (this time @ 272p) trade marked and, once again, no price reaction. ?

A 25k (@ 270p) trade marked at 16.21 and the price didn't flinch!

There's a lot to be learned from watching spreads. I wish I had a way of charting spreads of the equities on my lists.

Severfield results today. I assume the MM don't want to play unless the spread is so wide they can't lose.

@ansc, many thanks, always very useful to have someone like you with some direct knowledge of the situation.

According to HLS, trades marked of c.20k have gone through this morning with sells just outnumbering buys so the 23p share price fall is down to the Market Manipulators again. Have spoken to the company FD this morning. 'High profile' means ALL details have to be kept under wraps or BILN will end up in deep water. He also confirmed that all three, under their contractual terms, must be completed in 2019; there are no capacity constraints. I mentioned that there has been a banner on the Yate depot fence for the last couple of months advertising vacancies for fabricators; he confirmed there is a nationwide problem recruiting skilled workers but they now have just one such vacancy at Yate depot, two at Wombwell and four at Shafton.

I take high profile to relate to size and customer profile. Great for selling similar projects in the future if successful. Surprised at the initial drop this morning but I assume some stale/bored holders have decided to exit. I've penciled in 2020 as my earliest sale date now. Happy to collect divi until then but still hoping for a take out at some point.

It’s not a straightforward drop through as they are going to be capacity constrained...however larger (not speculative development projects) flagship projects are more efficient to program through the factory and quality of delivery is a far higher ranked selection criteria than lowest cost ...so margins should be excellent They’ve also got additional capacity coming on stream at the Shafton facility

Thanks, rhomboid. With these three new contracts mostly delivering in 2019, I wonder whether W H Ireland will issue a revised 2019 projection? Like sailing john, I'm intrigued by the use of 'high profile' in the RNS, does that mean more profitable? Even if the profit margin remains at 2016's 6%, it should add at least c.£2.0+ to their bottom line. Brilliant!

'the Company confirms it continues to trade in line with current market expectations.' It always bugs me when companies trot out that line parrot-fashion, how are we to know what current market expectations are? In the past I've contacted both the company broker (W H Ireland - no chance) and the company secretary ('I'll ask') without success. Does any other shareholder have a clue?

The company tests the loyalty of shareholders with their lack of information even on their website. It's only because I have their Bristol Steel Structure depot on my doorstep, thus enabling me to monitor their activity, which has kept me on board. Glad I did! But what a weird time to release a RNS.

Perhaps most significantly, one of the three contracts is in Europe. 100% of their 2016 and 2017 Revenue was from the UK (and I assume 2018 will be the same?) Perhaps exchange rates starting to help! MC £39m and NAV of £22m Rev sub £80m so these are very significant and I like the use of the words "high profile"

A net c.3k sold today and the price is down 12p ..... ridiculous.

Sorry but I have to disagree. In building my 27k holding over the last 15 months, I've traded on 15 occasions and have never dealt when the Market Manilulator's spread has exceeded 10p ..... one of my obsessions is never to line the pockets of super-rich stockbrokers! I've noticed that for whatever reason their spread tightens when they want to deal and widens excessively when they don't.

It's a fair question. But the MMs are not truly to blame. 82% of the stock is not in free float. That is the problem. So you have to take a leap of faith that this one is a good investment because exiting a large position (or even building one in the first place) is not an easy thing to do.

With a spread of 18p, do the Market Manipulators seriously expect investors to be interested in dealing?

I'd forgotten that the juicy 11.5p dividend was due to be paid on the 6th. Just checked my broker's account and there it was. A bit weighty for a single divi payment now so I wonder whether the company will split it and we'll get an Interim payment this financial year.

BILN seems better value than SFR on most measures: ROCE PE DV DV cover Just not loved by the market at present.

If it's of any help, SFR trading update is tomorrow and SFR share price is rising into that and has been for weeks on a slow but sure basis.

Following a confident AGM, confirming that prospects still look promising, it's a bit of a head-scratcher trying to understand (a) why any investor would want to sell and (b) be prepared to accept the ridiculously low price of 264p. Buying at 272p gives a yield of 4.2% ..... a long time since you could get that much anywhere on the High Street! Happy to sit tight especially seeing BILN's Bristol depot doing overtime again yesterday.

One day left to buy shares that qualify for the juicy 11.5p dividend. I decided to beat the rush by buying a few more today!
