It is my interpretation that often when someone wants to acquire a large amount of stock the brokers slam it down first to create a nervous environment around the share and to take out some stops. We shall see - From my day to day viewing of L2 I have the feeling there has been one party selling this share for the last 6 weeks. I don't suppose he's finished but I do find it interesting that we now have a small bot buying at 172.0 which is way above the low of the day.

Down 4% this morning. Anyone know if there is a reason for the drop?

Some small buying at 200 in the intra-day auction as slowly slowly this inches up. Psychologically 200 is interesting and it's where the sellers came out in force on the last set of news. However, I sense some or all of those sellers have since got out at 190-192. I am quite hopeful. At the moment anything oil or commodity related is rising and the second line stocks like HSP are starting to pick up momentum too

a move through 200p would make for an interesting chart.

Volume has absolutely collapsed. Buyers not inclined to pay any more. Sellers not inclined to sell for less. Presumably the buyers think the stock worth 150p and the sellers thing the stock worth 250p.

hmm - a few buys going through at 195.0 but the spread not narrowing. Hard to tell whether the MM are now short of stock and don't want to encourage any more buyers or whether there is a hidden seller who has more to shift at 195.0

RNS today. Artemis selling 250k shares, exactly matching in quantity the 250k bought by the directors.

Well, FWLIW, this seems much more likely to be a share propping exercise than a set of "value" buys, to me. The plans, intended changes, and recent purchases, strike me as very much a plunge into the unknown on a wing and a prayer, which may or may not work out OK. JMHO, Regards.

once directors bought, I've had some ; the (current) CEO led an MBO here in 2004 and floated it in 2005 ; hhhmm.

yes missed the directors buys. Think that should put a floor under it. tiger

Another good day. Found some sellers at 200. Not surprising as someone was selling at 200 on the way down. Next stop 400? rofl. Well maybe 250. Happy to hold and see what happens

Well they bought £425k worth today/yesterday which is enough from where I'm sitting. Tells me they wanted to buy before the results but couldn't due to the closed period. There's a really good presentation on the HSP website with a slide on how the numbers work. All the asset sales are on top. I am staying long. I am really struggling to work out my exit point.

someone sold 125k shares at 170p !! That's 200k at just above the all time low. They clearly don't have any faith. I see a false dawn...........a suckers rally before the bad news starts to hit. The bits I saw were trying to make EBITDA 10/15 million a year. Central costs 5 million. Cannot work out if asset sales /land was on top of that. There may be enough to pay the BOD for a few years but shareholders make money? Risk reward ratio. Still not for me until I see the BOD chuck a million or two in. tiger

It looks like we've got through 176 at last as someone has been selling 10k blocks on L2 for hours. Back to 180 now and let's see what happens there

Quite an interesting day. Certainly lots to think about. Looking at the trades someone sold 125k of shares at 170.0 which took most of the rest of the buyers to absorb. Absorb it they did with the price closing just about it. Quite a few trades at 180 which gives me a nice warm glow for the future share price direction

Well it's turned but hit a wall at 180 for the moment. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next few days as the extensive trading update is digested. I think it looks good but it's not the sort of thing you can analyse in 10 minutes.

And a very interesting update on strategy, but with the emphasis firmly on assets. Even on their optimistic reading of HSP's potential operating profits in its restructured form, they aren't that attractive. The assets are another matter, but I expect the potential restructuring costs - and difficulties- to be greater than they're suggesting.

I can finally see this starting to turn on L2. Whoever has been wiping out any large volume on the bid on a regular basis over the last 2 months appears to have finished. Volume seems to have dried up almost completely and I don't quite know what that means. Chart looks terribe though.

I think you are looking at the USD chart. The cable exchange rate plays with that. try Pounds and its still down. HSP has or will have no coal business. A small amount for domestic market but generators cannot use it going forward due to carbon tax. HSP will have to take a hit on Tower and the Opencast in Jock land is now a liability. All in my opinion. tiger

For info. Some coal charts. I'm not concerned whether its the right type of coal - it's the trend I'm interested in. http://www.infomine.com/investment/metal-prices/coal/5-year/ Downtrend broken but price not rising as fast as I would like.

Since PEABODY went pop in the USA IT TELLS YOU coal IS FINISHED. So move on and see if there is a business without it. The chart looks dreadful and I think I said 150p. Now I say 100p. Too risky for me. Wait till the directors throw some cash in then take a view. very best Tiger

Thank you CJohn - I will take a look. For the chartists: It looks to me as if coal futures have broken through the upper band of the downtrend going back to 2011. Not by prices going up but by prices staying largely flat since the start of the year. Fingers crossed.

Hi CC2014, you are a brave man, buying in on HSP. A contrarían move: may it come right for you. Yes, I screen for companies with greatly reducde profits or newly making a loss making a loss, then for cash flow, gearing, assets and so on. (I look for the latter to tell me that the company isn't a basket case and has the financial wherewithal to survive.) There are plenty of sites offering such facilites for a small sum ( or free.) I use Sharelockholmes. ps. The latest update of the various coal prices I have is that they continue to fall. Ugh.
