about headlam Headlam Group, a business engaged in the distribution and supply of floorcoverings, was established during the 1990's by a series of acquisitions in the UK and Continental Europe. The Group holds a unique position in the distribution of floorcoverings to the UK's independent retailers and contractors. Headlam is the largest supplier and has maximised its presence in the market's many geographic and product segments by successfully operating through 42 trade brands. Due to the way the UK floorcovering distribution market operates, there is much to be gained from operating a portfolio of regional trade brands whose success is based predominantly on a reputation for excellent local service. Headlam's national trade brands have allowed it to achieve leading positions in a variety of product and market sectors where UK wide distribution is key to achieving success. Each of the Headlam trade brands enjoys the benefit of having its own dedicated management team enabling them to concentrate on meeting the particular needs of their customers. Each brand team is supported by the Headlam Group's facilities and systems to ensure a consistent level of service and delivery. Headlam operates its Continental European network from three key sites. Lethem-Vergeer is based in Zutphen, a town located in the Eastern part of the Netherlands and supplies the whole of the Dutch market with residential floorcoverings. The national French distributor La Maison du Sol (LMS) operates from two main warehouses, with nineteen regional branches servicing the customers' requirements for residential and commercial flooring. Belcolor the Swiss distributor of residential and commercial flooring is located in St. Gallen in East Switzerland. http://www.headlam.com/company/index.asp

I see that today HEAD officially found its way back into the FTE 350. Presumably this accounts for the share price shenanigans of the the last 3 weeks.......

Well, I was wrong! The break-out movement has been good with 500p level being approached. Some reasonable volume also in evidence in what has always been a tightly held share.

zzzzzz Break-out and Headlam don't seem to go together. So, I'd have to opt for the latter. Steady progress over many months and years is normally the hallmark of the company, rather than spectacular movement.

After a long time of ignoring HEAD, while it has close to doubled, I'm interested again - making another start-of-year attack on the 12-year high. Anyone still watching? What's the consensus - break-out or drop back?

Anyone aware of the reason (if any )for the 7 per cent drop in the shares in the last hour of trading Thursday afternoon from 440p to 410p? Even by HEAD's standards this was a rather bizarre movement.

Hmmmm! The chart on this one is beginning to look like a game of 'Snakes & Ladders', and all on little volume. Profit-taking, or are the MM's working their wonderful magic? Regards, Ian

Another solid and respectable set of figures, which are slightly ahead of my expectations. Coupled with the confident statement should lead to some modest upgrades. Those who like well covered dividends will be pleased with the 10 per cent hike. This should mean the price gets clear of its current level of 420p, which may well become a support level.

Good AGM statement yesterday in the light of other more cautious statements. Liked this bit especially: "With a solid start to the year, the group looks forward to another year of growth in profitability." This is a well run company with superior cash flows. Not sure how much more growth can be achieved organically, but there is a good yield and little to no debt.

Bear in mind that the AGM is tomorrow and there will presumably be the usual trading update. Given the uncertainty around in the housing and high street markets, it's easy to see why people are nervous. There also seems to have been a persistent institutional seller operating, so likely to be a bit volatile over the next few days.

I don't really know anything about Halstead. I think they are in a different area of floor covering with different materials, just as Topps Tiles specialise in tiling. As such of general interest, but not specifically relevant.

yes buy recommendations seem to be the cue for institutions to sell. (I wouldnt for a minute suggest they would manipulate the media! :) ) the quieter the better and let the price do the talking.
