shauney2: You pays your money as they say.Is that an up to date Numis? finnCap reiterates Buy 398p target. From Motley fool hTtp://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2017/08/25/1-mega-cap-stock-and-1-small-cap-id-buy-and-hold-for-the-long-term/ Henry Boot (LSE: BOOT) raised its expectations for 2017 as early as its AGM in May. Today, it reported a good first-half performance and said momentum has continued into the second half, in line with the upgraded expectations. First-half operating profit was 8% ahead of the same period last year and earnings per share (EPS) increased 10%, with the company seeing “higher levels of activity across all business segments.” Boot’s activities range from land promotion, property investment and development to plant and tool hire and operating the A69 toll road. As such, most of its businesses are exposed to economic cycles. However, it said today: “Whilst we remain mindful of a continued degree of economic and political uncertainty, sentiment amongst our customers and clients remains positive.” Conservatively managed and cheap Boot maintains a robust balance sheet to weather periods of economic turbulence. Net debt at 30 June stood at £62m, giving conservative net gearing of 26%, and management said it expects land and property receipts in the second half to reduce debt and gearing further still by the year-end. The share price is little changed at 305p on the back of today’s results, valuing this FTSE SmallCap firm at £403m. Analysts are forecasting EPS of around 25p for the full-year, 16% ahead of last year’s 21.5p. This results in a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12.2 and a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.76. On the dividend front, the board lifted the interim by 12% today, suggesting a full-year payout of above 7.8p and a yield of 2.6%. The low P/E, a PEG below the fair-value marker of one, a dividend covered more than three times by earnings and conservative management of the business combine to make this a stock I’d buy and hold for the long term.

ben nevis: It obviously has pleased a lot of shareholders... but have they really worked out if its a good deal ? All depends I suppose on the share price after the dust has settled.

9degrees: The share price will stay the same but the existing shares are being cancelled and new shares issued on the basis of 39 new shares for 58 existing shares So no change in value of holdings just less shares representing the value of cashback

giwalker: Have been reading some of the recent posts. Will the share price drop by the amount of the special dividend or has it already been factored in?

accordeon: Agree with you, Big Boyo. No value in Boots: trading at PE 15, and almost 4 times tangible book value. Can't see any upside. The downside risks are manifest. At some point, these will dip significantly. But they have got a share price history of defying underlying fundamentals.

aos: Churchtower - I took my Xmas bonus last week, courtesy of a share price dip followed by an almost immediate recovery. I have decided to get back in again at 643.42. I am hoping that the 10p drop is the last and that we will see an upswing this afternoon once Wall Street opens, which seems forecast after yesterday's sell-off. I think also that the news of the US retailers Sears, Kmart merger may have some upwards effect on retailers. I might be wrong, but 'fingers crossed'. Happy investing to you ;)

zulu001: No. If you bought the shares before the 9th you would get "a nice tidy payout" but the share price should fall by the equivalent amount on the 9th. If you hold the shares in an ISA, you could consider SELLING the shares (before the 9th) and buying them back later - taking a capital gain (which is exempted from tax in an ISA) rather than suffering income tax on the dividend (from which ISA's no longer offer protection). There are some nuances here - briefly computer buy/sell programs usually dont know about shares going XD and merely buy/sell in relation to moving averages etc. So the fall in share price MAY not be as large as the dividend AND/OR the price may rise back quite quickly - the specific price-performance of shares going XD is the subject of several websites. Suffice it to say that utility shares (high divs) are the most interesting in this respect. In relation to Boots, it closed at 630p on Tuesday 17/6/03 and at 609p (XD) on Wednesday 18/6/03 but was 637p a week later even though the FTSE index was lower.

porkpharm: I have no positions in BOOTs at the moment. I used to work for BOOTs and am surprised that they have managed to defend their market share for so long. Baker is making costs savings, but this is not going to keep the share price going up, that will need increased sales growth. Can Baker deliver increased sales growth? I think this is more than just about price, it is also about the way people shop. Boots has many small stores, some as small as 100m2, and for these stores they have high costs, for each you need a pharmacist( high wages) and then staff to serve at the counter, so a large % of the sales are going to be eaten up by costs. Also people now prefer one stop shopping, even the large Boots stores cannot provide this, whereas Tescos, Safeway can. I now buy all my toiletries from Sainsburys, only going to BooTs if I happen to be in the area. Boots's prescription business will keep a few old customers returning and buying their soaps and shampoo, but they are dying out. I think Bakers agressive price war, may reduce the chance of sales dropping off so quickly, but I don't see any long term sales growth,which is what the share price needs. Short term, I think the price is going to depend on the FTSE/DOW and other retailers. Recent peaks of around 7.20ish I think are the top, and I am tempted to open a short unless it advances from here soon. Has anyone got any more views from a technical viewpoint?
