Nw99- there's been quite a bit of nervousness in the retail sector recently, but the price drop here has been overdone. The recent trading update showed a 12% revenue increase and a bumper dividend will soon be introduced for the first time. It's a quality company, great product and brand. AIMHO.

Looking at the trade list, and in particular the fact that the ~4 million shares' worth of trades basically all happened in a pretty short time period just after 14:30, were all at a price of 270p and did not change the price in any major way, I would guess that it's a big negotiated trade. I.e. basically a market maker found a big buyer, a big seller and probably some smaller buyers or sellers to make up a difference in the numbers of shares they wanted to trade, negotiated 270p as a price acceptable to all parties, and put it through. It will have appeared as separate reports of trades between the market maker and each of the parties, with ~2 million shares being bought by the market maker and about the same number sold, and the market maker was probably paid by a separate fee rather than a price spread, so all the trades were at the same price - and because 270p was closer to the low end of the 269p/273p spread at the time than the high end, the computers classified them all as sells... A possible alternative is that a single investor decided to re-arrange their holdings and chose to do it through the market, again paying a market maker by a separate fee. I would tend to think that the number of trade reports is on the high side for that, but it's certainly not impossible. Gengulphus

Actually registering on the volume as more than 4 million sold, which graphically at least looks to be more than were bought when it first listed?!

I had a short position here but was forced to close on Tuesday because my broker had "been forced out of our short hedge position against this market." Presumably their lenders have been demanding their shares back which means they had to be bought back in the market - hence the recent price spike. Understandable - if I were them I'd want to sell at this crazy price, not settle for some paltry loan interest. GLA

Not just that but there are almost unlimited expansion possibilities here and overseas.

Although the marketing and packaging of HOTC's products is first class the products themselves are no more than average moreover they are extremely expensive.This is not another Fevertree and with a market cap. of £417m at £3.7 per share the company is significantly overvalued.Reality will dawn before long.

Well not any more ! hTTps://www.britishbulls.com/SignalPage.aspx?lang=en&Ticker=HOTC.L "The evidence is strong enough to prompt the closing of long positions. The bearish pattern that was previously identified is finally confirmed and a SELL signal is generated. "

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.
