Does anyone know the market rules on how quickly director selling has to be notified? I have often seen director buys and sells notified to the market on the very day they took place. You are right Elite. It is hard to "forget" 5 big trades but maybe he did not forget. Maybe he just did not want to alert the market about his selling and push the price against him until he got out. It may or may not be against the rules but it certainly is immoral for a director to behave in this way. He is certainly laughing at us now. Wouldn't be surprised to see the share fall further just on the disgust of PI's at this kind of person being entrusted with their investment.

THat really is shoddy behaviour by the director. I would have thought that failure to notify the company -- when he must know he has an obligation to do so -- is a sackable offence.

Indeed Callum. Had I known about him selling, I wouldn't have followed FIF as soon as I did 20p further down from that level though so not too bothered. I have seen times before when directors have literally 'forgotten' to notify the company, and the notification has been made several months later. It's rather different to 'forget' after 5 trades, so that can't be the answer At 47.5p though, it's very good value in my opinion, regardless of the lack of past growth. Heavily oversold as well.

This announcement of sales by director Mr Monk at 68p stinks. It took him months to declare this to FIF. Hasn't he done very well out of this when you see today's price! Anyone thinking of buying this one must wonder about the people running this company. Is there not rules that require him to declare these sales timeously and not have to wait months before advising the market?

24th Jan "today issued and allotted 641,800 ordinary shares of 1p each ("New Ordinary Shares") following an exercise of options." perhaps 641800 shares being sold since then

sp falling like a stone recently.... maybe the outlook for rain in the Russian wheat fields is bad ! (and hence that flour price might be going up.... or similar for sugar)

the director Monk selling around 60p in Oct and Nov... but not reporting it till today... is that not breaking the rules ?

I have been watching this one for quite some time but never invested and the last update did not change my mind. They have several issues including flat sales, rising costs and the inability to pass those increased costs onto their customers so I will stay out for the moment. The share price got away with itself over the last year and is now just correcting for that. If you had held this for the last 2 years you would still have beaten the market soundly.

Indeed Boffster. It continues to defy belief! This drop has been relentless

I don't understand why anyone would sell at this price, what are they afraid of? Or is it just movement of money into racier stocks, the next big thing? With rubbish valuation, solid business, strong cashflows, little debt, surely we're an acquisition target. And I couldn't see that happening for less than £50m

Patience needed. I would expect it to bounce soon. Good opportunity for an institutional holder to start buying in / topping up.

Mr P, I really wouldn't worry - just look at the solid fundamentals and the ridiculous PER. From here, the only way is up up up.

Must admit I hadn't expected us to drop below 50p, now getting a bit concerned as well as fed up!

Getting a bit sick of this death by a thousand cuts! Any opinions as to FIFs suitability as a takeover target? Given much reduced debt and miserly P/E.

Yes, clearly Ruffer see a bright future here along with most on this thread. Interesting to find out who's disposing of so many that it's overridden the Ruffer increase - or is it just MMs playing tricks?

well after the recent falls thought i'd have a look at buying back in. Nice to see many familiar posters still here. Will browse back through the recent post history and have a review of the TS before committing. Ruffer upping there stake by a further 100K+ shares. As usual will post if i buy. Woody

It was really the grimmest way of saying we're expecting higher profits this year and benefits of investment coming through the year after! :o)

it is tough going out there for FIF clearly Am I the only one to detect a bit less enthusiasm in this pre close update than in prior recent announcements? I think they need to be careful here. 1. They need to keep taking market share from and trading better than competitors (easier said than done, but they can) 2. They need to work hard on costs and efficiencies and 3. They need to be positioned on the right side of the consolidator / consolidatee fence when that kicks off in their industry. (I am not sure which side of the fence is best for them just now tbh). It would be easy to get any one of those 3 things wrong - at great cost! Overall, disappointed.

Will there be anything left of the once mighty Premier by the time they've done selling bits of it off?

From PFD statement this morning: The Company therefore expects the short-term cash benefits from this transaction, excluding fees, to be approximately GBP28m, which it intends to invest in its core Grocery business. Specifically, it is intended that capital expenditure in 2014 will be predominantly focused on improving capacity in the cake business including the investment of approximately GBP20m in a new Snack Pack cake slice line at the Company's manufacturing site in Carlton, Barnsley.

Their specialised bread business is interesting and poised for growth next year. FF always puts out relatively negative statements, given retailers (their customers) look very closely at the words. Presumably it helps on pricing discussions. The cake market is fairly mature though I suspect, although they have a very good position.
