Short term thinking does seem prevalent these days. I suppose the internet has made it easy to gamble on shares. A broker once told me that I was doing OK, and that most traders don`t make much money, if any. Shroders have held FSJ for longer than I have, so we are not alone in our approach.

Sorry I was being a little tongue-in-cheek hence the :-) I pay no (or very little) attention to short term movements in share price. I learnt many years ago that I am not a trader, speculator or gambler. I invest in companies where I see good long term value and then wait. As Warren Buffett supposedly said, my favourite holding period is - forever. I am taking more of an interest in Fisher at the moment because it has not returned to the >10% growth in profits each year I anticipated. Either the forecasts are wrong or I am wrong and I'm keen to find out which!

That's better. IMHO the share price has nothing to do with intrinsic value and is dictated by the desires and whims of the short term traders and algorithms. I find it very tedious as I am not a gambler and gambling is what investment has become. If you want a good example of the shenanigans that go on, have a look at the PFC board. Utterly ridiculous.

Well. Fisher back on the acquisition trail, this time an installer of highvoltage engineering and services for renewables. Looks to be a good fit in their offshore wind market and a reasonable price for a profitable company, rather than jam tomorrow.

Trading statement out this morning. Although it's an 'in-line' statement it was completely devoid of any overall upbeat directorspeak. I got the impression that they were slightly unimpressed or perhaps even disappointed in the continuing poor performance of the offshore oil division. Coupled with the knock-on from the disastrous running of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority the update is decidedly lukewarm. I expect weakness in the shareprice to continue for a while now. I will be watching and if it falls low enough, ideally below £14, I will add a few more, in the expectation that they will finally get to grips with offshore oil and forecasts will improve as a P/E of 20 is a little pricey for growth of 5-7% a year, cheers

Me, too. But such things happen. Spouses buying or similar? Whatever reason, better than the previous fall. Wasn't £19 some broker's target price?

Last year's trading update was 22 Nov, so have been expecting same by the end of this week. I regard FSJ as a very straight company and would think it unusual if anything had leaked today to bring about the late rise in share price Still, I'll take the rise anyway.

bouleversee, Well done on VCP. No, I don`t hold them. Volume here will likely increase immediately following the announcement of results. There seem to be an unusually high percentage of long term holders. ( fairly tightly held )

P.S. to previous: I meant to ask if you can explain the tiny bargains (in one case only 1 share and several under 10 yesterday) and the paucity of deals altogether in FSJ, assuming the figures shown on IWeb's research page are correct. I see they were down to l522 around 9.30 this morning.

Roddiemac - You are right, of course, as always. It's just that I am used to seeing only 1p or so difference in prices whereas the price I am offered to buy is about l2p more than the mid price shown on my p/f valuation but it doesn't actually amount to much when you work it out. Just my tired, old brain being slow. More important is when the share price is likely to get back to where it was earlier in the year, for which a crystal ball is needed. I daresay that if I sell at a price lower than it was when my husband died, the price will immediately shoot up (as it has done with others I sold at a loss, e.g. Pearson, and if I buy them back in my ISA to hedge against this, it will go further down since I always seem to manage to do the wrong thing. Doesn't really make much difference in the great scheme of things so I may just toss a coin and get it over with. You don't hold VCP by any chance, do you? My astronomic paper gain on that will, I think, compensate for most if not all of my other losses, till it also disappears in a puff of smoke, that is and if one ignores tax implications. All a bit too good to last. Many thanks for your support.

bouleversee, the current spread is less than 1%. That is not a big spread . I hold one small stock where the spread is 67/74 (10%+ ). I have a large holding in CML; the spread today was 455/470 ( 3%+) I hope you are well.

Is there always such a big spread on FSJ shares? I still haven't managed to sell the ones I need to sell from my late husband's estate as they have continued down rather than recover. I thought I might buy more in my own ISA acct. today and then sell when the price would recover the costs but although the portfolio valuation and research indicative price was l541, the online quotes I received (within seconds of each other) were 1554.56 to buy and l542.77 to sell. I haven't bought any for many years so don't know whether this is normal but it's a bit of a turnoff and in the end I didn't buy or sell. I had expected them to have returned to around £17 by now, as tipped. My other selling dilemma is SSE, whose price has also dropped hugely since my husband died and was a much larger holding. I can't see them getting back to £15.54 in a hurry either, though I thought there might be a selling opportunity today as I heard that the govt. was backtracking on the cap. I need to get on and finish the admin. so am going to have to cut my losses. (Apologies for being OT) All very tedious when one can't set a limit.

Apparently there is a buy note out there on the shares today somewhere.

emerald , On most days trading is made up of many small deals. There is often little or no logic behind short term price movements . The best we can do is to recognise when a share is cheap and when it is overvalued. I try to concentrate on the story and and what I perceive to be the prospects. Many shares have drifted in recent weeks; I have just bought more CML shares , which have also drifted despite being financially very sound, and having very good growth prospects.

it moves around like hell (often negatively !) on tiny volume -- for some unknown reason....

Investec are forecasting a pre-tax profit of £50.7m for the year to December 2017, and EPS of 84.6p ( last yr.£45.8m and 76.3p ) The Investors Chronicle says " The company has continued to grow underlying profit and margins despite tough market conditions due to its geographic and operational spread. Given the group`s defensive nature, and the fact that the shares are trading near our buy tip valuation at 19 times earnings, we see no reason to lose faith at this stage "---Buy.
