The consensus broker forecast for the WHOLE year,ending June 2017, is just 7.43p - slightly LESS than the 7.8p at the half year stage.(source:FT.com) That gives a price earnings ratio of about 46 (!) which is lousy value even at the current high growth rate. Although it's been pointed out by some analysts I reckon quite a lot of private investors haven't registered that historically the company has generated more than all its profits in the first half year. Last year (ending June 2016)the profits were only £8.2 m despite being £8.8m in the previous half, and that's adjusting for the exceptional costs of the listing. There are 2 brokers covering this, and for what they're worth their 12 month price forecasts are 341p and 270p. When even the house broker isn't giving its client's shareholders a 12 month price forecast higher than the current price that should be another warning to holders.

The chocolatier recently issued an encouraging, if brief, trading update. Our IPO note suggested at the time that this was the IPO of 2016 and the shares haven’t disappointed so far. Is the valuation now up with events or is there plenty more to go for? We've taken a closer look at this highly rated offering and an unsavoury element of the IPO process which investors should be wary of.

Hmmm. Well I'm not sure what's been going on. Someone seems very determined to offload in small chunks and it carried right up to the close

I think it's just a shake at the moment - went down on very little volume. Holding mine tightly still

I've added - shares are under accumulation. Shares can hold high PEs for a long time if they are growing
