DMurphy: Yes, nasty, ouch. Sod's law: I was travelling Monday and yesterday when the news of this came out. Not sure now whether to sell or hold. The share price should be underpinned by the NAV and the maintained dividend: not tempted to buy more however, though if I didn't have any already, I might go in at some point. I'm glad you remained cautious: the right strategy currently. Bungling the news release is pretty unimpressive too. I'll probably hold for recovery on a year's view. Currently sitting on a 20% loss.

Seems to me Churchill need to get their act together otherwise they will lose all credibility. Whats next? Yet another trading statement in a few months saying actually we didnt really mean it we ARE going to meet market expectations after all?

Forward broker prediction is for 27p this year, albeit I take this with a pinch of salt,as the company is expecting a significant pick up in the 2nd half, with first half figures slightly down on last years. My feeling is the downside risk is limited by the P/TBV of about 0.65: back of envelope calculation, plus the well-covered dividend, and net cash position which is likely to improve further this year,as the company says their capex requirements will be significantly lower this year. If the price slips back to 150p for example, I'll pick up a wad of these.

Yes, thanks for your long and thoughtful posting, D Murphy. The point on the past history impacting on current sentiment is a good one. How would you time a buying decision? I tend to buy in when PE, dividend, NAV and debt hit certain criteria, and not worry too much about the general market state: SUF is the one exception to the rule, but then I usually go for value shares, which tend to be unvolatile for significant periods of time. Hence I've got a average buy price for CHH of 170. And not too bothered by falls down as far as 130.

Hi CJohn I can see why you are very bullish about CHH including for the reasons you mentioned above. Other points to bear in mind are a Market Cap of only £18m but with net tangible assets of 256p per share, so not so good and good. It might be difficult to buy and/or sell the shares quickly depending upon circumstances. Delving into the history of the company, it all went wrong in 1998 followed by a disaster in 1999. The company subsequently re-organised and turned in respectable results for both 2000 and 2001. The share price reached 700p in 1997 dropping all the way down to 60p in 2000 and rebounding to the current range of 160p to 180p. Clearly the market has been put off by the company's history and when the market is satisfied that the past has been well and truly buried then no doubt the share price will be re-rated. The management currently has a cautious view of the future but provided they can keep the upwards profits trend going then you must be in for good times. The judgement, therefore is, when is it due for a re-rating. It is certainly one I am going to watch and hopefully at the right time I will invest in. Thanks CJohn for the tip. Notwithstanding the above the stock market is in a very difficult position at the moment and there is clearly good profits to be be made with good timing, unfortunately the dangers are high.

This little company is going great guns...sales up 4m,interim profit up to 2m and a dividend of 3p! Turnaround of debt from 1M to a nice cash balance of 2.4M. Why buy tech rubbish like MONI when you can buy a little company thats actually making money and paying it out. Lovely.

CHH has remained at its current price since I bought it a few months ago (yawn!). Interims are due soon and if they are in line with expectations (which I think they will be IMHO), then we may see a further jump. DYOR. M.

The MM very slyly accumulated plenty- on stale bulls bailing out. One to hold on a two year view. They look dirt cheap. Good yield too. No Brainer.
