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.

Thanks for taking the time to post CJohn. Appreciate it. I wonder - the screen you run for distressed turnarounds - is this something you buy/have put together yourself and would you mind sharing a little more about it?

I have added today as I'm a dirty bottom picker ;-) Seriously oil and commodities have all bounced way off the bottom now and in this phase the second line stocks tend to lag. Oil I understand has crossed it's 200MA so that's a really strong signal At the moment I perceive someone is selling and taking their losses as presumably they've made some money on the recent rise to pay for it. This is not unusual and tends to happen - I see it on a couple of other commodity related stocks as well. If this is the bottom there is very reasonable upside for a bounce off an oversold position. I will decide later whether this is a short term hold for a couple of months or whether I'm holding on for the big rise

Well, this company have come up on a screen I run for distressed turnaround possiblities. But having taken a closer look, there seems almost no possibility of a turn around. The core business is going. And I don't see they have sufficient FCF to fund significant acquisitions. The acquisition they have made looks speculative to say the least, though to be fair, the Price paid wasn't extortionate. (Great posts, Muckshifter et al.) The property assets per se don't support the current share Price and besides will take years to realize. The only posible salvation here is the redemption of coal. A tiny possibility of that happening. So I'm ducking this one - for now. Good luck to holders.

Just looks like a car crash here. Huge strategic errors have been made and the share price has tanked. What is going to change things around? Buying other businesses might help in the longer term. An utter disaster really.

HOLDING IT DOWN? Whats holding it down is the difficult area the company trades in. When the Directors start buying it will look cheap. Till they throw money at it ,it remains high risk tiger

Large trade at 199.0 today - presumably accounts for what's been holding the price down.
