|Just checked...'Demand for our market-leading products within the Lighting segment remained in line with management expectations.'|
|I would have expected a trading statement/update at the AGM on the 20th but I've not heard anything...have I missed it or was there none?|
|stuck oscillating around 1000 for now; looking at the medium term chart the pattern over the past year has been upwards, consolidate, repeat!|
|Interesting analysis :
|I only sold DIA as it reached my target of 1000p and, more importantly, as it doesn't give a divi and, as an oldie, I now hold only high-yielding stocks long-term for divis. I still have confidence in DIA now that their problems seem overcome.|
|beeezzz - that is old news - transaction date 3/3 and was not taking profits but a part sale of exercised options to cover the tax:
|Tompion.....Looks like somebody else has the same idea....taking profits
|I think we are getting some end of tax year repositioning...looks like it may keep above £10 so looking good for future.....maybe a takeover, which I wouldn't be happy with mind..|
|Sold out my remaining holding this morning at 1017p having held since the original flotation. Good luck to holders.|
|Down 5+% today - what's going on?|
|Well a 100 watt light bulb on for 10 hours uses 1Kw depending on your rate that would be approx 10-12p, @30% about .3p. So I haven't bothered until all my old bulbs are used up, and price of LED's will be a lot cheaper by then.
Dia do make street lights and in their USA facility. What is the bill now for street lighting now if they could save $120bn is it $360bn over 20 years which equates to $18bn a year|
|I've converted my house to LED and my electricity bills have gone down by 30%. I can't say what percentage of my lighting bills I've saved because I don't know what proportion of my electricity went on lighting but I was surprised my use of electricity went down so much. We have the usual range of electrical equipment including fridge and freezer that are on all the time, laptop almost constantly on through the day and other things frequently used.
My electrician told me that I'd save on most of my lighting bills and I believe him now even if I didn't before.
With my personal experience as a guide, I'd expect very significant savings for street lighting. Perhaps the $120bn is realistic.|
|$120bn sounds rather high for street light savings?! even if it is over 20 years. wonder how they work it out.|
|"About 10% of America's street lights have so far been converted, but the Department of Energy has estimated that if the whole country switched to LEDs over the next two decades it would save $120bn over that 20-year period.
Cities across Europe and the Asia Pacific region are going down the LED route..."

Do Dialight make street lights and if so do they make them in the U.S. ?
( I'm a bit out of date as not currently invested here - same boat as you meijiman !)|
|I don't understand it either. But I'm pretty cross as sold out much earlier and so missed most of the action.|
|Think the rise is mainly a short squeeze...not sure if this is a Trump effect or not! but it has certainly been a bad time to be short most companies.
Not sure many people would be buying on the last set of results alone. When you break out the results into HY's you see that 2016H2 was the second weakest in recent years for profit after tax and 3rd weakest when you adjust for exceptionals & capitilised development:
2012H1 2012H2 2013H1 2013H2 2014H1 2014H2 2015H1 2015H2 2016H1 2016H2Underlying PAT (£m) 5.5 7.7 3.9 6.0 4.6 7.3 1.5 2.9 6.4 2.3PAT-Capitilised Dev-Exceptionals (£m) 4.5 5.9 1.5 1.1 1.9 4.2 -1.5 -6.1 -6.5 -3.3
H2 is usually the strongest half as well.
So with the recent financials pretty weak the rise is most likely to be momentum trading combined with a short squeeze IMO.|
|...it's certainly spiked up - could anything be going on behind the scenes? ...or is this a Trump effect?|
|Is Dialight valuation gone ahead of itself?|
|Through £8, then £9, then £10, then £11 in 7 weeks....works for me :-)|
|Yes sharw, I thought the interesting thing was the price at which they traded = the very top of the allowable 5% range.|
|bbbbb - that was the uncrossing trade from the auction - still quite a volume though|
|Yeah...just take a bit time to work through the short...if that is the case, will not get an RNS though, below 3%|
|Perhaps, 17k shares bought for 1115p after close today.|
|Short slowing being let go, Hmm|
|Thanks....nice finish today above £!0|
