networker agreed. head is steady so it doesnt give de/rampers much to play with. that only leaves people who use the BB's for reasonable comment/interest... very quiet! I think this is good for another 15% next by next year with the current outlook. add that to the price dips then thats not bad! 440p soon then 480p what do you think?

These results were better than I was expecting and the price is now trying to breach its recent high of around 460-470p. I find it extraordinary that this company elicits so little comment or interest among investors. The last BB comment was in January and a growth rate around the mid-teens still looks attractive over the medium to long term. Ironically this share has only one investor 'recommendation' which is a 'Sell'. Such are the perversities of the stock market where good companies get overlooked while empty vessels often get hyped out of all reality. It will be interesting to see if there any press comment tomorrow of any description.

this from the interim results when the share price was 390p. share price now up to 437p looks as if the market is confident about something. Outlook Our businesses in the UK and Continental Europe have all contributed to an encouraging first six months. With the benefit of this, combined with a constant focus on our suppliers, products, customers and service, we look forward to the traditional busy autumn trading period and remain confident of achieving the group's operating objectives for the year. TG Larman, Chairman 9 August 2004 final results to be announced in march if similar to last year. HEAD being illiquid, it will probably drop back before then but I am looking for overall steady rise.

At 430p the shares are very close to their all-time high. A move above this level, if it happens, is likely to be the pre-cursor of a significantly higher level. By this I mean say 10 per cent higher. Such a move is by no means guaranteed, but there does seem to buying going on at the moment.

These seem to be trying to have established themselves into a higher trading range, ie above 400p. Will this lead to another surge northwards he says hopefully.

I've been around a long time and followed Headlam for some years. This recent daft trading in frequent units of 100 shares appears pointless. I assume it's computer driven but it would seem very inefficient and ineffective. Perhaps someone can tell me what it really intends to achieve for the seller?

the selling bot is back today... price still ticked up though. the pattern is very obvious and would only fool another computer not programmed to react to trade vol in 00's. would dealers leave a computer program running the bid? can't be!

Was yesterday's late trade of 30k shares at 430p a dealing mistake? If not, may indicate aggressive buying as it was well above the going rate.

jeffian I have assumed price movements due to it not being a liquid stock. any buy orders then the mm have to push the price up on the day but let it fall back for close. yesterday was different but then a 1,000,000 trade before the open this morning suggests there was unfinished business. disappointed it has now fallen back. any view of what to expect for results at end of year? carpet right have sales up 3%, floors to go also good. colms

Given that HEAD is in a low-tech and fairly 'visible' business, why the volatility? It regularly features in the daily 'highest/lowest movers' screens and although it's traded fairly steadily within the 370/410 band over the past 6 months, the graph looks like a seismograph in Tokyo! Nice for traders, maybe, but any thoughts on why? Regards, Ian

CR's recommendation on 9 June to switch from HEAD to VCP is looking a little 'unfortunate'! 8-) Regards, Ian

Am I alone in thinking these are good and encouraging figures and statement? They should give support to the share price, even in an overall dodgy market. The shares are currently range-bound in the 375-400p bracket and reluctant to move.

Break-out seems to have happened on the downside. Volume however is minute, which probably means MMs playing games. Short-term the next support level looks to be around 380p. Nothing appears to have changed on the fundamental front, so just the machinations of the market in operation. Presumption has to be that the recent institutional buying support has dried up, at least for the time being.

I see the Citywire Brains Trust lists Headlam as one of the highest rated stocks by ' Conviction' ( Number 14 in its top 20 list ) . Private clients may apparently shun it, but some fund managers are obviously keen enough on it to be relatively overweight. Recently there seems to have been a determined seller and the shares have effectively traded sideways over the last two months. As the market overall has weakened this probably still amounts to out-performance. The tug-of-war continues with quite large blocks changing hands and it will be interesting to see if the break-out is up or down from the 400-420p bracket.

Have you looked at Victoria Carpets (VCP) ? 70% compound earnings growth PA over the last two years come the results June 22 At these results VCP will post earnings nearly double that of HEAD. After these results you'll see the forecast earniings nearly double that of HEAD. You'll see a yield nearly the same as HEAD. Where HEAD trades at more than 3 times NAV, Victoria trades at NAV approx. But the share price half that of HEAD. CR

Ian Thanks for your earlier comments about historic prices. I now expect some Broker upgrades and likely positive press comment and they may well be sufficient to move the shares into new high territory. Certainly performing well today in a duff market, but as usual gets no interest shown in it by the majority of ADVFN subscribers who seem to prefer punting on second division companies or outright speculations. This company has the capacity to contribute to longer term wealth creation for investors.

Impressive AGM statement today. Maybe the strength of the share price recently is just refelecting 'fundamentals'. "20 May 2004 HEADLAM GROUP PLC AGM STATEMENT At its Annual General Meeting today, Trevor Larman, Chairman of Headlam Group, stated that sales in the first 20 weeks of 2004 against the corresponding period last year, have increased by 12% on a like for like basis. This sales performance reflects an increasing sales trend across all geographical regions in the UK, a year on year improvement in sales of all product categories and the businesses which we acquired during 2002 performing ahead of expectations. Our operations in Continental Europe continue to show an improving trend. With this positive performance, the group looks forward to another year of growth in profitability". Regards, Ian
