Accounts out - On the surface a very satisfactory performance. HEAD will never be a racehorse but is a very solid and profitable workhorse. Fair yield, very competent managment. One to hold and get a reasonable yield (imo) Also a very quiet thread - Often a good buy indicator provided the other indicators are positive.

sold my holding first thing this morning in two bites. Trading update a little uninspiring and the operating margins are not overly ambitious so after taking the divi i figured it will tread water a bit. woody

I absolutely hate buy backs. They should be outlawed. Just a way for large plcs to guarantee management bonusues. Companies are the WORST predictor of their own share prices imaginable. They should do a special divi if they have surplus cash. And FWIW I think there is plenty to come from Headlam. Builders are overvalued for sure. But the likes of Headlam and Travis Perkins still have plenty of growth left.

At a guess it will be used for expansion and building a dividend buffer before the next cycle dip. However it would not kill them to retire 2-3 Million worth of shares. Saves a fat amount on a compounding dividend.

PLEASE not buybacks! Any company wishing to return cash to shareholders should either pay special divis or make a return of capital. Buybacks are smoke & mirrors imho.

Looks decent value to me with a fat and growing cash pile, added to a major CAPEX programme coming to an end IMV. Hoping HEAD may initiate a buy back as a way of upping returns. Look at the JHD multiple, there deserves to be some difference imv, but not this much.

Yep I've already shed anything building related, NTBR the last to go. Recruitment and food producers have been the winners for me this year.

thx bb2 i'm running the trend at present. i know CPR has pulled back a bit so maybe a read across there but the chart is still trending so i'll live with it a little longer. I've become very TA orientated now, investor sentiment seems to be more important than fundamentals these days, some crazy prices out there relative to intrinsic value. Construction suppliers warning and real estate agents slowing. The builders are next then the household goods providers so won't be long before the cycle catches up with HEAD. When the trend breaks i'll consider my position. woody

no but i'll have a look. my favoured stock at present is GMS i think it's very undervalued and suffering in a sector which is very much out of favour. I've posted quite a bit of info on the financials since the H1 results. It's not without risk but as their capex falls the strong cash flow will reduce debt significantly which should provide excellcent returns. sorry off topic! wc

Hi Woody, glad to hear that you're weathering the storm. I'm about 15% in cash, but I invest monthly equivalent to 1 - 1.5% of overall value. So, as you say, bargain prices are welcomed, although it's never great to see huge drops in a day. Regardless, I'm a long term man and happy to ride out the storm, whether it's 3 months or three years. Back to HEAD, I haven't had chance to read the results in detail yet (saving that pleasure over a G&T tonight whilst avoiding looking at my portfolio page) but the headline figures look very positive. In a normal day, I'd expect the price to jump 5%. But I'm a patient man and delayed gratification must suffice. Good luck all. Cisk

i took a more cautious approach in the spring of 2014 and sold down a lot of my holdings. I missed the early part of the uplift towards the end of that year and only tentatively entered with very careful stock picks and more trading for this year. Fortunately i've managed to beat the indecies even with this level of cash. My feelings are this is only the prelim to a much harder correction. From what i've read there is a hell of a lot of cash in institutional funds at present, as much as 18% with some fund managers and this may now get fully invested on the basis that this is the major correction. When that happens and we see the real hard landing then there'll be no more cash to invest so it could get pretty brutal a few years ahead. I'm expecting a significant bounce and a reversal of all expectations of a interest rate rise, possibly even more easing which will fuel further money into the market in the medium term. That's my view fwiw so i continue to be cautious. I got caught on my Japanese Investment Trusts this last week but on the whole i didn't fare too bad this time. One of my strategies to offset a portfolio correction has been to try and find businesses that don't have too much negative currency headwind or those that will still drive revenue despite a market fall, very little cyclical stuff. DVO still got to eat QP. still got to take your medication REDD recently, accidents still going to happen ALNT undervalued and under offer HTY undervalued and under offer This along with GMS are one of my few cyclicals but the value of both is compelling etc etc. woody

yep bb2 very impressed just watching and waiting for the US open before i decide to accumulate. Seems my decision to hold around 30/40 cash over the last year was a wise one. It will be like the xmas sales shortly, bargains everywhere, i'll be like a kid in a sweet shop! woody

Come back in and been picking up a few regularly over the last few sessions, particularly after the CPR results. Although the trend line has been broken on a few ocassions there appears to be strong support at 460p aimho. woody free stock charts from uk.advfn.com ROC downtrend broken and beginnings of some strength in the RSI. Stochastics look to be over sold too.
