But usually finishes on the downswing. Management not helping, by dumping large shareholding onto the market just prior to Trading update.

cflather I am still buying. Not a lot....25 a month or so. I am putting most of mine into japan via bailie Gifford fund/trust - BGS turned £10k in to £75k over 10 years... FT100 managed about £17k including divis.... You could try Fundsmith Equity and FGT..both stuffed with boring "bond proxies"... that is a strange name as these stocks return a rising divi which bonds do not, capital growth as opposed to the capital losses bonds wiil give you with rising interest rates and a measure of inflation protection as they can raise prices (nout from bonds) Or CARD with a 30% capital loss and a falling dividend.......grrrrr!

Possibly related to the lowered £2K tax free threshold on (non-ISA/SIPP) divis? Sell shares at close day before ex-d and buy back after divi amount is deducted following day? I've done it before - sometimes works well if share price drops more than divi amount.

Totally confused by share price this week. Has been falling all week then ex div today when tradition and common sense dictate it will fall.....so what happens? The bloody price goes up. WTF is happening? Noticed that same thing happened with Aviva a couple or so weeks ago.

10% compound sounds lovely. What's your view on them currently? Look a bit pricey to buy in now in my view

I do struggle with some of the bond proxy views. Ulvr and DGE are often referred to as bond proxies but ULVR churns cash Grows the divi by c7% a year and has given me sizeable capital growth. Not so bond like. Boring and relatively predictable but a very solid core. It won't be an overnight 10 bagger but 10% compound will do me.

I was here for the last ex divi. That wasn't a good day as the share price crashed. Today the price is holding well. Very well. Glad to see the sentiment turning around.I still believe in this company for the same reason I did before - a defensive, cash churning company with growth potential. Not a bond proxy because it's too risky, and unlike the traditional utility companies, isn't losing market share Happy to take my money today and pump it back in

Chairman selling doesnt offer a lot of encouragement however the results were generally good for a share at this price and potentially (based on their divi forcast) offer a good return on a 12 month view. Anecdotally I went to our local Card Factory shop before Christmas and came out with nothing I thought their selection was cr.. My wife was out shopping for 12 birthday cards yesterday and came back with 12 all bought in CF.I wasnt expecting much but when I saw them was pleasantly surprised at how good they were!! Average of just under a pound each. Personally I dont see any takeover on the horizon.

Indeed, looks a good takeover target. Defensive, as you say. And, because it's vertically integrated, will improve margins with growth. Therefore a prime takeover target

I sold out recently for a circa 12% rise having bought in January only to see my investment down by 5 - 10% for the best part of 3 months. I like this business however I'm not convinced by those running it and the recent chairman sale has only enhanced my negativity of those in the boardroom. Personally I think this should get taken over, anything around £3 would be a decent buy for someone like B & M or Walmart etc. This is a defensive business with a pretty decent moat around it, if I was looking to buy a big retail business Card Factory would be on my radar.

The BoD have very lttle skin in the game here. Cooper still holds 228,000 shares but the rest of the board collectively only hold circa 150,000 between them.

Yes, I agree, Eastbourne1982! I was looking to reinvest but am now thinking twice about it.

"confirmed buys outstripping sells" - eh? There are NO 'confirmed' buys or sells. If you're looking at something like the Advfn trades, they're guesses based on the mid price. They are notoriously unreliable for obvious reasons. Even I can buy at the Bid and Sell at the offer.

Its had a good run, up more than 30% from the recent lows, so just a retrace I'd guess. I expect I shall be buying back in soon.
