Don't understand why the share price just hovers around 95-100 despite plenty of buys on a daily basis. Could have bought at 95p today...

I bought some more after considering the sale of the division, they now need to put it to good work, invest in a Deli Ali not a Jansen

I had thought that the slide may have been caused by a perception that the sale of the Education Division would cause significantly reduced profits out of which to pay dividends. However looking again at the half year results the division contributed just £1.7m and if the sale proceeds of £64m reduces debt at a saving of say 3% pa then the saving in interest costs over six months would be just short of £1m. That would still leave earnings of over 7p out of which the 3.1p dividend is over twice covered. I am puzzled and would instinctively add more but my holding is probably large enough for the moment. FWIW three of the four analysts rate it a strong buy and fourth a buy.

I would have said the ADVFN chart does not stretch that far but I've had a look at Mon£yam's chart and that gives slightly different data which possibly does just about extend the crunch (end of triangulation between downtrend and 100p support) further out until the results arrive. Share prices rarely reach the very end of a triangulation, though, so it will be one to keep an eye on.

Interesting how crunch time on the chart coincides with the next set of results which, are imminent.

Likely moves are back to 124p next if downtrend breaks or down to 80p next if support at 100p goes? Both support and resistance overlapped by daily range of last 3 days so it has to break one or other imminently. free stock charts from uk.advfn.com

Is the downtrend since January about to break? Support at 100p has been fairly strong. It would only take a few more days over 100p to break it. (Chart later, maybe)

No mention in that article about efficiencies being delivered in news - £5m planned for 2017, which the last trading update said would be fully delivered, and another £5m planned for 2018.

I agree with his analysis. Connect strikes me as simply unloved because it's boring but otherwise the numbers all look within reasonable parameters. On the debt side I would focus on the ratio of net debt to EBITDA because that is what banks focus on. Above 3x is typically "really bad" and a bank will want to see a plan for reduction implemented. Between 2 to 3 is OK for a very stable business or one going through a short-term spike of some description (eg an acquisition). Below 2 is the preferred place to be. EBITDA for the year to 2016 was £81.1m when net debt was £141.7m. With the disposal of the Education & Care division, EBITDA will drop by £7.8m whilst the net debt should drop by the cash received of £56.5m. That leaves the remaining business on a net debt to EBITDA ratio of 1.16, which is well within acceptable parameters.

100p just about holding support at the mo, but if that goes, gawd knows! The chart is ugly.

Doesn't look like an exit, more a struggling on. I have had a feeling (hope?) that Connect's long experience would put them in a better position than some of the competition. We shall see...

Marked up this morning - on the back of the troubles at DX group? They are running out of cash - sale and leaseback , emergency loan from a shareholder, declining profitability .... a competitor to exit the market?

Helpful to see the wider picture too, kazoom. Quarto by the way is a different kind of animal. Also had a change of very long term and successful management not too long ago (I had it on my watch list for ages, never bought).

Why do we need a read across here? 3 weeks ago we were told OUR books division was trading up 12% and renewed a framework agreement. That not positive enough for books?

But the reverse side of that coin was Quarto results the other day that said they were sinking fast - also a book publisher.

From St Ives results today: "Within our Books business, revenue for the second half was approximately 8% ahead of the equivalent period last year". Any read-across would be good news.

News division's inevitable decline and also its costs have been controlled very well, from what we are told each year. Happy to see JB extending his responsibilities if he can also extend his success!
