I've previously expressed some nervousness that these are looking fully-valued. I now note that both the CEO and FD sold last week. A signal?

yes solid results, meaning very good results. Small volume affecting the price. We could see a strong push up when it stablises in in the run up to March ie a buying opportunity when the dust settles

Solid enough IMS but, given the recent strong run, I imagine there is an element of 'buy the rumour, sell the fact' at work here.

decided to cash some gains on this one at 550p, having bought in at 450p after the results. on the watchlist and will look to get back in around 500p or ideally lower

Alphabeta I quite agree. This has been on my watchlist for a while but the equity part of my asset allocation has been fully invested for a while now and I would have to sell to buy and there's nothing I want to sell ! FWIW I think it's still undervalued at the current price.

I remember a couple of years ago this traded off a PE of 22 so not far off this, the rise is welcome but think it will do well from here to consolidate what it's done. I'm happy - following my post 5th December would be nice if all my holdings had made 25% in a month! One thing I've been trying to do is if I feel a share in a quality company has dropped to support and there is no real obvious news behind it then use it as a chance to get some cheap shares, whilst human nature feels more comfortable buying something going up the art is in spotting something unjustifiably cheap liable to a rerating.

Pleasantly surprized by the uplift in share price - sure to be profit taking tomorrow, but happy with Diploma over £5 a share. Maybe a share split is on the cards.

what caused the share price rise this am. certainly not buying volume .... maybe a read across from other news??

DPLM has suprised me and bounced up nicely to broker target. Onwards and upwards (I hope!).

Possible I guess, I topped up at 450p as thought people were getting too jittery about Americ so I struggled to see why the drop was warranted in the first place. Weak engineer results that people unfairly put Dplm in the same boat, were proved wrong and have now forgotten why they were worried in the first place?!!

Sold out a few weeks ago, but another corker set of results, I see. Well done to all holders. As Alpha said, solid as a rock.

Solid as a rock. Pretty much bang on analyst consensus and pleased to read on the various investments in new facilities especially the fast expanding seals business. Always a good indicator of the management assessment of future demand. 2013 consensus looks undemanding and given the above barring significant problems in America can see likelihood of further upward revisions to come. Long term buy for me.

Great results as ever and 14.4p dividend means a yield approaching 3%

A lot of very small investors? I am thinking of buying more right now. The trading update is there, the election will cause certainty at least and the price is where it was in April. On basis of what I read, I'm expecting revenue of £260m and eps around 27-28p per share, and lots of cash in the bank at yr end

Thanks Jeffian. Makes sense and as a result I won't hold my breath on the residential side making a direct first round material difference. I also agree that the housing effect could be very useful from it's impact on the consumer and second round effects. Seeing how consumers often treat housing as a store of wealth should follow will help the economy (finally) help sustain some signs of life and bring some confidence back. Would be nice to see some fundamentals take charge, feels like we've been relying on governments and central banks for far too long now and would help everyone if the US could finally crack it!

My guess is 'not a lot'. The seals and gaskets that Diploma supplies are for hydraulic machinery which is normally associated with heavy earth-moving (they refer to heavy construction, infrastructure and mining). Other than the groundwork for residential development (site levelling, drainage, roads, hardstandings etc. - normally carried out by 'JCB'-type equipment) there isn't that much use of hydraulics in residential development which is smaller-scale. Having said that, any improvement in the residential market is good for the economy generally and would undoubtedly have benefits.

I personally think that the 500 marker was just too big a psychological resistance level for now. I topped up at 449, on balance I'm still keen on this company to go further. My biggest concern is the American fiscal cliff and risk to construction spending. I will be keeping a close eye on this. Something however caught my eye on page 3 of the Mar 12 half year review that I have a question on: 'In North American, the aftermarket businesses within the HFPG group (Hercules, Bulldog and HKX) all benefited from the increased confidence in the industrial economy. In particular activity levels were robust in heavy construction and infrastructure projects (though not yet in residential construction) and in non-traditional makrkets such as shale gas exploration and surface mining which require significant site preparation work'. Is there any way of working out how much revenue Diploma generates from residential construction? Just asking because if you think (like I do) that North American house prices (barring above cliff!) have bottomed out and will be supported by the FED buying mortgage backed securities this could be a good revenue generator going forward as construction companies start to boost their profits again leading to higher residential building starts. Any thoughts?

It's the old 'fear & greed' thing, isn't it? It's had a good run so some people will bank profits in an uncertain market. As I posted earlier, the same thought had occurred to me! It is beginning to look expensive on fundamentals but that may just be a reflection of the continued growth prospects. I continue to hold.
