I thought it interesting that the drop to 56.2p represented 20% from the January peak. In the grand scheme of things it didn't seem to trigger much in the way of stop-losses. Most the holders these days are institutional.

The 48333 was a delayed buy offsetting the 48333 sold in the in the morning.

Quite bizarre - just over 600 Sell transactions of 50 shares, all timed between 15.23.19 and 15.23.21, so obviously programmed. Thereafter a Sell of 48,333 was reported just after the close @57.26 and the closing price has now also broken through support @60p for the first time this year !

Many sells of 50 shares. Curious. Any explanation?

It can happen the other way of course and this can be seen over the years by the big swings in share price.

One problem with the stock is that so many shares are held by so few major shareholders that it only takes one deciding to reduce their weighting and with such low liquidity that can depress the share price for months even in the face of good trading.

Funny, because I was recently thinking similar. A communications company which don't communicate much :-/ IN any event the chart is indicating that there may have been some buying at around 60p. ...oh wait yep, that was proably me. Well anyway it looks like a nice time to buy...

A very disappointing performance so far this year as we approach the end of the first half. The shareprice is down 7.5% since the last Y/E on December 31, while the FTSE 250 is up 3% and the AIM all share index is up by 6.7% over the same period. There have been no news announcements since LY results were released 3 months ago, no H1 trading update is scheduled and the interims are not due until the beginning of August. This company really needs to adopt a much more effective PR strategy !

The VM offer by CYBG would create a relatively cost efficient competitor to the big five banks. That point is highlighted in the close of the article linked below. Of course this offer may ultimately be rejected by VM shareholders but it seems to me anything which highlights that competitive weakness in mainstream banking is likely to be a positive driver for opportunities in Communisis' world of expertise.hTTps://www.moneyexpert.com/banks/clydesdale-yorkshire-bank-owner-puts-offer-virgin-money/

Stock out on loan fell dramatically from 4.55% in March to 2.29% in April - somewhat bizarrely not a single notifiable(0.5% or greater) short position was reported in March.

Looks like yesterdays 3.1m share purchase was by Otus Capital Management who have now accumulated 12.7m shares, which constitutes a 6.1% holding in CMS.

I completely agree JT. The key metric here is that FCF is running at a rate of circa 50% of the net debt, which enabled them to cut the latter by circa 20% last year. This needs to remain a prime focus for the new FD given the likely interest rate rises that are in the pipeline.

On the subject of dividends Mas. CMS is a nice example of the potency of dividends as a reward for patient investors. For those like you who bought CMS between 12/2009 and 3/2010 and achieved an average price of let's say Circa 15.5p CMS has returned 100% of your investment via dividends. Not bad for 8 years holding. At one point the shares dipped down to 12.5p so for some it may have been better still.

A catalyst is one way Mas I agree but i think it needs to be done without increasing our gearing and hopefully in a way which increases earnings but does not assume additional pension liability thus further reducing the deficit to earnings ratio. That may be possible if CMS were to take on more Bank outsourcing perhaps. Equally another way forward would be to keep throwing off free cash flow and to drive down net debt further. We are entering a time where examples of the casualties of rising interest rates are reported every week. From the troubles of HNA Group, to House of Fraser to Maplin to Gibson Guitars, Toys R Us, New Look, Carpetright and so on. Debt will become the focus of the investment world I believe as interest rates continue to rise. CEO's of public companies need to be mindful of this change in sentiment. The positive here that I still see is that CMS should be a beneficiary of Brexit related customer communication.

Well a sizeable order, 3,125,000 @63p, went through just over an hour ago but it only had a marginal impact on the shareprice.

Agree - this morning I've decided to track back up to around 65 (hopefully) then sell - don't like the way it's drifting down.

Since the year end trading update circa 15 weeks ago, which was subsequently validated by the final results published in March, the shareprice has drifted down by nearly 10% to 62p again. We seem to be stuck in a price range between 60p - 70p and a PER valuation metric of circa 10. While I'm happy to sit back and collect my 6.5% yield here, there really needs to be some kind of catalyst to create some momentum in order to trigger a more positive market revaluation. Maybe this needs some M & A attention to achieve a higher rating !

hxxps://www.aol.co.uk/news/2018/04/11/two-4-small-cap-dividend-stocks-that-could-beat-the-ftse-100/ SECTOR DISCOUNT Like Norcros, shares in Communisis look cheap. The stock is currently trading at a forward P/E of 9.4 and supports a dividend yield of 4.3%, even though earnings per share have grown by 17% annualised over the past six years. It looks as if this growth is set to continue. As my Foolish colleague Jack Tang recently pointed out, Communisis has just embarked on a three-year Value Enhancement Programme to deliver 5%-10% annualised adjusted earnings growth through to 2020, via its three critical strategic themes: Digital First, Global Reach and Empowered Organisation. If the company can hit this goal, then in my opinion, the shares deserve a much higher valuation. How much higher? Well, the broader media services sector is currently trading at a median forward P/E of 12 while the professional and commercial services sector is trading at a median valuation of 14.2. I think Communisis deserves a valuation between the two, around 13 times forward earnings, implying a share price of 95p based on City projections that the firm will earn 7.3p per share for 2019.

So part of the big volume on Thursday was Majedie disposing of 1.4m shares and reducing their overall holding from 5.1% to 4.4%. I wonder who picked those shares up!
