Added a few on this mornings dip. If the normal pattern repeats itself it will move up from here. A steady long term hold, the Goldman Sachs target of 810p will do nicely as a start.

Well I sold at 600p Jeff and I could buy back in at those levels six months later. IN the interim I bought an oil field in BRazil and they needed the land for the World Cup so I mad a bit on that and then invested the lot in Xfactor winner futures....

Good question, very unusual for Diploma. As to whether there's anything to it who knows - would have thought the pe was a bit high for someone to try and build a big stake in it but the price has been very strong for a while now.

What's-up? Two late-in-the-day price monitoring announcements and some significant price movements. Am I being over-sensitive or are there some moves afoot - anybody, any thoughts?

Hmm, £7 on the cards? Decent rise again.

Decent enough update, good to see growth improving from the 2% earlier in the year with moves back towards the 6% long term guidance. Seemed to imply with the net cash to expect an acquisition.

They made a presentation to North American investors yesterday about their Canadian and Australian Healthcare businesses. http://www.investegate.co.uk/diploma-plc--dplm-/rns/investor-event/201309100700034620N/ I think we can assume it went well!

I always thought you'd be here forever - like me! 8-) Edit: I've admitted before - if not here then on other threads - I'm a terrible seller. Shares which I've sold out of - albeit at a profit - include FOUR, James Fisher, Next and Persimmon and they've all multi-bagged from my sale price. I now try to filter out wider market conditions and not second-guess where the 'top' may be for any particular share, but just hang onto it through thick and thin as long as the company itself is doing the right things - growing revenues, profits, earnings per share and dividends - as DPLM seems to do. If it moves sideways or even goes down for a while, I just pocket the divis and wait for things to catch up again.

Nothing wrong here as ever, just as you say whether the price now fully reflects the business, which I think it does. Btw, I sold Telecity four weeks ago having made 10%. Now in PFC.

Ii sold at current levels and went into Telecity. I wish all my decsions were as smart , but this will always be on my radar - last Octobers fall to 450p for example was good buying opp.

I like this company a lot but today's interims have done nothing to allay my nagging fears that it is fully priced at these levels. Growth is pedestrian, albeit against strong comparatives from last year, but on a historic PER above 20x, a fair bit of future growth is in the price.

The second half is expected to be stronger than the first half and there's a hint that revenues across the Baord will not equal last year's peaks. If that transpires , in the current market the share rpice will be hit. It's a month away from the interims so who knows. I sold above these levels and will watch carefully and look to buy if the market contnues to be silly

As long as the company is comfortable with its forecasts, I think this is still undervalued compared with its peers. The fact that I disagree slightly with one of Winni's acolytes gives me added confidence, although I wish, given his recent record, that he would go short ! "Cupid, draw back your bow......!!!"

Stumbled across this on the website, didn't realise there were only 1000 holders! http://www.diplomaplc.com/content/shareholder/analysisShareholding.asp Anyone know if the IMS is Monday or Thursday? II says Monday, Proactive Investors Thursday.

Indeed, it's the discounted future earnings to inifinty that should make up the price not just one years figures. Having said that the market often tends to over correct both upwards and downwards, predicting the top and bottom however is like predicting the extremes of human emotion. I also sold 581p to only come back in at 603p on the retrace with my tail between my legs, was surprised just how easily went through 600p at 630p and was lucky enough to grab on the retrace (was liable to test 600p which it passed). Think 660p is possible in the short run. LOQ is posing me a similiar dilemma, has run out of proportion to the results (albeit tech so a bit different) but have kept in as think worth running winners.

Do earnings need to double or have, on a very simple PEG analysis, they moved on to a higher PE rating because of better growth prospects?

The issue isn't "has its earnings doubled", silverfern, it's "will?"
