The rise continues with shares being traded as high as 265p as one buyer has been prepared to pay a premium for 15K. Anyone got a feel for what is really happening? Some time ago there noises about a possible management buy-out although I've not heard them repeated recently.

Today's rise puts the shares up to the top of the recent trading range. Going past 250p may prove difficult in the absence of any trading or other news.

The title of this remains something of a ( historical ) misnomer. Slow and steady might be a better description. Recent cross-trades imply that buyers are now absorbing institutional stock sales. The recent steady price rise to 232p suggests there could be more to come, particularly if the selling were to dry up. Next significant news is likely to be the trading update from the AGM on Wed 21 May.

Volume today has again been low, but price has moved ahead to 227p level and now well away from the low point. Too early to say if this marks a change of trend as the selling institutions may yet re-appear. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next few days. On the buying side Legals have recently increased to 4 per cent and could possibly be further buyers.

The price always seems to rise pre results so this could be the time to buy in, but are the recent institutional sales over. The business appears to be sound and the sale of the windowcoverings business should have eliminated most of the debt. The only downside that I can see is that eps growth may have stalled and this is why Fidelity sold down their holding.

I was out most of yesterday and was surprised to see the price action on low volume. Suspicion remains that there is a large sale still to be reported - or the MM have been having a bit of fun.

Good results from this company are always followed by selling and my experience of it is that the share price will remain weak for a couple of months and then start to pick up again. They are now exclusively a carpet distributor having recently got rid of their last remaining fabric companies. All the write offs are out of the way and the rather grandiose expansion plans of the Ian Kirkham era which used to scare the pants off the fund managers are long gone. Tony Brewer the CEO knows the business inside out and has his feet firmly on the ground. I got in at around £1.50 in early 2001 and have stayed there. I think they will be bought out when there is a general improvement in the economy and wouldn't be surprised to see a price north of £3.50. codoctor

Does anyone have a 'feel' for this share currently? Recent results were good and pretty much in line but the shares have fallen back to an historic support level in the 220-230p range. Past few weeks may have seen institutional selling from small company funds who can no longer hold, but can anyone confirm this? If and when this selling source dries up could become interesting again.

Headlam - Sinks on heavy discounted Institutional sale

Jonny Walker, If these are sales (my screen shows them as "don't knows") they could be an institution cashing in profits when nobody is looking. My info is that Headlam have had a good Xmas on the back of a continuing improvement of the business following the disposal of their remaining non-core operations. codoctor

Can someone who has quite a flat head balance a football on his head? If he can, is he allowed to simply "carry" the ball on his head, then tilt his head forward when he gets to the goal - thus scoring?

Share price has fallen back over the past couple of weeks and again this morning. Volume has been low but there currently seems to be a dearth of buyers. Could be just some idle profit taking or MM gently running a short position. I've not seen anything to change the fundamental outlook and am not aware of any changes in broker views.

zzaxxzz.. just off topic a little bit. How did you get to paste that trade history in? Presumably not when you are in streaming mode? Agree about HEAD looking good, though.

Bought into these last week. Another share where the chart and fundamentals are equally as good.

Another acquisition today, and +4.5p as a belated reaction.After watching for a while, I'm about ready to take the plunge (which will probably be the reaction of the share price!)Weird old mixture of trades today though - look at this lot - Broker-Broker, cross trades, protected transactions, and 1 or 2 "normal" trades thrown in for seasoning.Num.CodePriceSizeTypeCTBidOffer  Time  BuySell?Buy %T.BuyT.SellT.?8101XYXO002270.0100000O  270.0277.0 11:43:00  100,000    3,000 125,320 375,266 7301U345V02273.5127700B  270.0277.0 12:34:16  127,700    3,000 125,320 275,266 6301U2QQY02270.0100000T  270.0278.0 12:09:00 100,000     3,000 125,320 147,566 5301U2NNF02272.525000O  270.0278.0 12:00:15 25,000     3,000 25,320 147,566 4201SX7XX02272.5125000X  270.0278.0 11:59:00  125,000    3,000 320 147,566 3000HRTOE02275.02000O  270.0275.0 11:52:002,000      3,000 320 22,566 2000HRTNY02273.81000O  270.0275.0 11:51:001,000      1,000 320 22,566 1301U307702268.5320O  268.0270.0 10:41:00 320     320 22,566 0000HS01Z02269.022566X  268.0270.0 10:25:57  22,566    22,566

Shares have closed today at around 268p in good volume. This follows on from the sale of Gradus announced recently which eliminated debt but was earnings dilutive. The short term outlook starts to look more positive and the longer term recovery appears to be solidly based.

I've followed this share for some years and they seem to be recovering well after the debacle with the disastrous acquisition. The core business is sound, if rather unexciting, and management now seem intent on progressing only that area. Recent share trades suggest a buyer is still accumulating stock and I agree with the comment that the shares could move higher if resistance around the 260-265p level is cleared. However, in the current uncertain market that's not bound to happen.
