William / Monty, I doubt it. Every single chart shows a good trend. I sold out Fevertree when I thought it had hit it's highs. What a mistake... it kept going. I will be waiting for the charts to tell me it's ready to sell. May lose a few % when the big boys sell, but will make further gains until then

I take it as a good sign there isn't much chat KenOne. Indicator of a good share is careful and considerate posting by the contributors. I avoid shares where someone is constantly trying to downplay the company to drive their short through or if someone is shouting, "It's a ten bagger!".

Hi kenOne, I always check this board for any EOne news. I found a news item in variety magazine on the 26th March about a distribution deal which must be why the share price popped.... Entertainment One and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment have signed a multi-year, multi-territory distribution agreement.

Nice free slot on national radio. Presenter declared that Peppa Pig had become the unofficial face of the "Year of the Pig" in China's social media. Don't know how that translates to money, but free advertising is always good.

Yeah Monty it is unnerving, but it was only 17% of his total holdings. Probably bought himself a new house or private jet. If a director sells 30% upwards I start to really look at the finances
