|Wrong, please check but there is a special dividend as well, so I have it as 21.3cents|
|I bought back in at the TU before resuts at 201p, I remember kicking myself I didn't get in first thing at 199p. I see some people didn't want the dividend, that's fine. I've sold out too much (about half, topslicing twice) during the rise which has gone further than I dreamed, will use any exaggerated fall tomorrow or in following days to buy some of that back in. Div is 10.4 cents, right?|
|Wow that's some move!
On paper up 53% since results!|
|When I bought a couple of weeks ago, it was collect the dividend and maybe a small capital gain. Then with the rise I thought long term £3 would be nice.
Now at £3.15+ I'm just running with it to see where it goes.
The dividend will come and go and the share price will settle afterwards.
If cash generation can continue then who knows?|
|Nice rise recently - what at people's targets?|
|Amazing volume with a buyer absorbing huge amount of stock. I took my profits but may regret it!|
|Looking at the volume , there was far higher volume going through this morning and we have gone up since, so I hope that means the volume was essentially large buys and that bodes well.|
|Still rising it seems - happy with the buy - so far.|
|Well so far so good.
Rarely do I read results and buy early in the morning while spreads are at there worst, but I thought that the results deserved more of a reaction.
I guess these are small enough to be under the immediate radar so the reaction to results has taken time to warm up.
Typically as they now stand I didnt buy enough either|
|These have climbed nicely since results day and still no comments?|
|Good response to results so far.|
|Nice one Fenners. Think I might stick with this one, I can see it getting to the 245p target at least, and with the divvy and cash flow, people getting used to terrorism and clampdown on airbnb by municipal authorities I think it's one you don't have to worry about *too* much.|
|I had a nibble here this morning on the back of the results and special dividend.|
|ANyone know why it zipped up to 222 then back down again? Trump's comments on Euro strength? But HSW takes euros, dollars, pounds which should cancel each other out, right?|
|Seller at 204 taken out this morning, quiet board and up on volume is good.
LONDON (Alliance News) - Analysts were pleased with Hostelworld Group's trading update after the online hostel booking platform said its full-year results will be in line with the board's expectations, following a challenging year.
The company said it delivered 21% growth in bookings in its flagship Hostelworld brand in the second half of 2016, resulting in 18% growth in the year on the whole.
Including the smaller Hostelbookers and Hostels.com brands, overall bookings rose by 2% in the second half, but fell by 1% in the full year.
"The return to group-level volume growth in H2 is the stand-out highlight from Hostelworld's trading statement. In what was a difficult year for the travel space at large, we think this development will be well-received by the market," said Davy analyst Ross Harvey.
In May 2016, the company said trading in the second quarter of 2016 has been below its expectations following "recent geopolitical events" in Europe.
Harvey said the challenging 2016 meant the group's share de-rated to 10.6 times forward price-earnings, which he believes is overdone, considering the good momentum going into 2017.
Numis analyst Wyn Ellis believes Hostelworld managed to negotiate a tricky year well, with cashflow still strong and a solid balance sheet.
Numis maintained its Buy rating and 300.00 pence price target. Davy has an Outperform rating. Both Numis and Davy act as brokers to the company.|
|Down low enough to make it worth a punt before results? 213p for the divvy seems good to me|
|some heavy volume going through today|
|Yes, all very good. Worth £2 at least.|
|Positive reaction to Update from Mkts|
|Plenty of buying today. Looks keen to break out.|
|the great irish take away, looks like it floated at top of mkt|
|500k buy. Someone's confident.|
|thinking of buying but want to check dividend yield as can't see that clearly agree good b/s etc so could be a good buy as young people want to travel all the time|
|Very bullish writeup in the IC tonight should see this open pretty well in the morning (barring referendum shock).|
