dangersimpson2: They definitely have form for building up a large stake in an unloved company and then making an offer. See Creston. When they have the large stake I would imagine they would approach management about changes they would like to see, e.g. better cost control, lower management pay, improved strategy. If they engage and the business performs better they get their return through dividends & share price appreciation. If they management refuse to implement their suggestions then they make a takeover offer for the whole of the share capital and manage the business directly. As long as the business is sufficiently undervalued and responsive to change then they get a good return either way.

dangersimpson2: You have to be careful about direct comparison of margins since the different companies have different mix of permanent, contract & outsource revenue. Companies that most do permanent recruitment tend to have higher margins and therefore ratings. I'm not sure this is totally logical because one of the benefits of HVN is the balanced mix of the three revenue streams. HVN has always traded steadily in different market conditions due to this mix where as a high margin permanent recruiter will face losses in a recession. I view HVN a bit like an option - if someone like DBAY can come in and significantly improve margins then the share price will take off. If they muddle through as before the stability of their three income streams will provide downside protection, the share price won't do much but you get the income to re-invest elsewhere.

ntv: a top up op coming as share price drifts as we approach final results 63/64p area?

edmundshaw: At least 7 years in fact speed, (I have held these in varying amounts for approaching 9 years, my own records don't go back more than 8.5 years on dividends). Full year dividend was 1.9p in 2008 when the share price was around 40p.

abcurtis: Weak management/low share price/high divi/generates cash. Sounds like a target for a different recruiter to me,

deeppockets: The senior management here including the CEO have been there ages and achieved almost nothing if you look at the share price. Some of the Directors were pretty average performers 10 years ago, and now they're managing the business - frightening! Some areas have barely increased in years. they need to sell the business or get out. They're overpaid for doing very little. They've handled the market badly and not recruited top performers from outside (fairly typical from recruitment companies bizarrely!). Considering the economic recovery in the last couple of years they have not done well considering what their competitors have done.

rivaldo: I sold this morning in a few trades, including at around 77p. The outlook is pretty cloudy, particularly in the UK, and although trading is seemingly in line I can see this worsening sharply pre-Brexit vote. Above all though, I just simply got fed up with this share! I talked to someone in the industry this weekend who said everyone is aware that the company is run for Albert's benefit - including his huge salary/package. It's no wonder the company seems to lack any decent institutional support to provide ballast for a decent re-rating. I really can't see the share price moving up anywhere fast any time soon, whereas I do see risk of further downside. Plus my patience finally snapped. Good luck all. I've probably got this all wrong - hope so for your sakes!

rivaldo: An extremely good update too considering the share price performance, which appears to have got things wrong. Trading is nicely in line with expectations, which are for 9.2p EPS, with a 3.88p dividend. And HVN are in net cash too. Currency movements should now be helping HVN this year, with expectations of 9.6p EPS with a 4.1p dividend. Back to 100p now - or more.

jimmywilson612: We are in a nasty downward spiral but I don't think HVN is fundamental a bad business - I am a holder and will continue to hold. The past year not many recruitment firms have done well. HVN - Year low (72p) Current price (72) HAYS - Year low (112.9) Current price (125) MPI - Year low (364.6) Current price (377.70) MTEC - Year low (420) Current price (440) STHR - Year low (290) Current price (300) I disagree with Zoo that recruitment is easy and least costly to set up - many people try and fail with recruitment - I work in the industry - I know how tough it is right now. Dividend yield is now nearly 5% so I think that is fine. Harvey is going to report alot of write offs with recent disposal's of non-core business interests and this in my opinion is driving the share price down but it is the right thing to do to concentrate on their core business and look to increase profitability/margin in key areas. Less is more. Most of HVN profit is from Europe - currency has been against them in the past few years but hopefully this year we will see a benefit from these natural swings.

contrarian2investor: The re-rating as already started. HVN share price is up 7% over 1 month. Their PE* is 7.4* Whereas over the same time frame. RWA is down 1% PE 11.5 HAS is up 5% PE 13.5 MTEC is up 13% PE 8.6 STHR is up 3% PE 13.1 MPI is up 1% PE 18.7. Average PE of this cohort is 12.13 So this shows you the potential PE rating that HVN could achieve when it finally becomes fully integrated and recognised as a consistent cash cow in the sector. We just need to be patient. Just look at the recent share price performance of CMS, which is still only on a lowly PE rating of 6.1 PE* data courtesy of the LSE.
