fido, the time when this information would have been most useful would have been just after you sold out and before N4's meteoric rise. Thanks very much however for your kind hindsight. I'm almost back at breakeven now but looking at N4 to see if its spike still has legs.

Orange1, you are wrong on a number of accounts but there you go. My post was prompted after looking at CCT`s share graph doing very little since I left. My intention was to show that there was an alternative to just treading water. As for N4 Pharma, it does not need ramping because the news over the next six months will be that good it will sell itself. You are right on one count though. That being that I have no interest here other than fond memories and that there is no reason why I should continue to post here so I will post no more on this thread and will delete CCT from my list of BB`s. I wish you and everyone else here the very best of luck.

Maybe an idea then to quit posting on this board and concentrate your efforts on the N4 board. You are an incredibly gifted and able investor with enormous intelligence and foresight. Why devote any attention to the "losers" on this board? Unless of course, you are so unsure of yourself and your own worth that you feel that you have to prop up you new investment with a bit of gratuitous ramping.

I last described CCT as being a share dead in the water and looking at the chart that is a fair assessment. That situation is likely to continue with a risk of bad news sending it sharply lower. For information, having invested in CCT mainly at the 20p mark and selling out a few months back at the £5.36 mark, I have put the proceeds of that sale into a pharma stock called N4 Pharma where my money has multiplied by six times already and where it is very likely that there is going to be explosive growth over the next six months in N4 Pharma shares.

I do wish they'd issue RNSes at 7am though, even if it's just for an award. Makes them look even less professional!

Good news about the 2 awards. It looks like more buy backs today totalling 50,000++ shares, hopefully a positive view of the current market price by the BOD. Looking forward to receiving the 10p dividend on Friday.

Two Toy of the Year Awards for Character London: Wednesday 24 January 2018: The Character Group plc (AIM: CCT) is delighted to announce that its principal trading subsidiary, Character Options Limited ("Character Options"), is celebrating not one, but two, successes at the annual Toy Industry Awards held last night (Tuesday 23 January 2018) at The London Toy Fair. Each year the Toy Retailers Association comes together to announce which toys were most successful in the previous 12 months, with several awards being granted within their own categories. Character Options was announced the winner of two: Best Electronic Toy for the Laser X Dual Pack, manufactured by NSI International Inc., and Best Action Toy for The Original Stretch Armstrong manufactured under licence from Hasbro. Each of these toys were also awarded the status of Dream Toys in November 2017. http://www.rns-pdf.londonstockexchange.com/rns/8187C_-2018-1-24.pdf Jerry Healy, Group Marketing Director, said; "The Toy Industry Awards night is a very important occasion as it gives credit to the 'best in class' toys of the previous year. Everyone at Character is therefore delighted to once again be awarded two of these important accolades." Jon Diver, Joint MD at Character, added; "The success also signifies the prospects for the year ahead of these two brands. Laser X was successful from the moment it launched last July and, this year we will be extending the brand with two further toy lines, the Laser X Battling Tower and the Laser X Long Range Blaster. Stretch Armstrong has now developed into a full product range of characters, including iconic figures from the past, Vac Man and the Stretch Monster and is one of Characters' fastest growing brands." Kiran Shah, Joint MD at Character, also commented: "The London Toy Fair this week is proving to be another great expo for us -we are currently exhibiting our full range of 2018 products and the feedback we are receiving from customers and trade visitors to the London Toy Fair is very encouraging. We are confident that the performance of our core ranges and these new introductions will result in further growth in demand for our products, in the calendar year ahead."

Pretty much what they'd said before, though as ever it'd be nice if they stated what the expectations actually were. Market expectations, board expectations? The price has probably been mostly marked down due to their releasing the RNS at 7.55am, christ...

As reported in the 2017 Annual Report and Accounts, whist the Group's performance for the half year to 28 February 2018 will reflect the overall lower trading compared to 2017, the Board remains confident that, absent any major external factors, the Group will return to its previous growth pattern during the second half of this calendar year and this will be fully reflected in the strength of the trading for the financial year to 31 August 2019.

Sorry didn't mean earnings per share more the amount to pay in dividends

Sadly it will not even increase earnings per share as there are now approx. 100,000 more shares out of treasury and back in circulation compared to the last buyback statement. Staff incentive schemes I would guess

Character buying back their own shares fractionally increases earnings per share. What Character need to do is increase earnings and that is what they are now failing to do and as such buying back their own shares is a waste of capital.

Meanwhile the company continues to buy its own shares which has to be a bullish signal. The latest purchase was yesterday at 455p (10000 shares).

I'm guessing Toys R Us are failing because everyone buys online. It doesn't mean people aren't buying toys any more. Though the tendency to just give kids an ipad to play with rather than actual physical objects might eventually do for all toy manufacturers eventually, I'm gambling Peppa & co will keep them afloat. Of course, I may find something more exciting, or Pokemon popularity may die down and make that franchise less worthwhile.

As I said, Toys R Us are the drop that caused the ripple. That ripple does not stop with Toys R Us but will travel outward through the whole sector. CCT is primed for more disappointment.
