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.

The maddening thing is that whereas I can deal online with my sprogs' accounts, as executor I can only deal by post or over the phone and I had to fight to get permission to do the latter and the price started going down as I was going through the endless security and admin procedures and getting a quote, which I declined as I thought it would buck up after lunch but it continued to fall instead. Clearly I should have done the selling before the buying. Shows how much I understand as I thought a 10% increase in the div. and what looked to me like reasonable results with a suggestion of much better things to come in the 2nd half were justification for the increase first thing. But then, I didn't understand why they had fallen so low anyway. As they are collectively the family's largest holding, it's very disappointing and a tad worrying.

bouleversee, Yes the results were ok. Nothing special and so no reason to move the shareprice overall. There are promising signs and the directors are promising a good full year result but I don't expect the market to reverse its current negative sentiment until some positive newsflow occurs and/or the company raises its profit expectations. In the meantime who knows what the shareprice will do? But perhaps you can take comfort that my timing is no better than yours in the short term! cheers Illis

Phillis, It was only a clue :-) You see where the turnover has gone wrong, you can work out where the missing profit is? You need to do some work yourself? But in case you can't - try reading the second table right below the first one! Cheers Illis

bouleversee, Predicting short term share movements is difficult. There were four large trades marked as sells just after 12am . ( 3 trades totalling 143,794 shares at 1580p, and one trade of 75,397 shares at 1578.42p) Thereafter the price drifted in the usual small volume.

Can anyone explain the strange trajectory of the share price today. As the results seemed to have been well received, I topped up in my sprogs' ISAs at £15.94 with the intention of selling those in my husband's estate when they had risen a bit more as I expected they would but instead they immediately started to fall and are now not much over £15.40. I can't win! I'm sure they will be OK in the long run but I need to sell the estate shares as soon as possible.

" Woefully short in producing a profit" This means something different One day Rodders, one day

Phillis, I know where the turnover increase has fallen woefully short. I referred to it in my message above. What surprises me is that you don't appear to know where the turnover increase has fallen woefully short? Here's a clue. Read the first table in the H1 report. cheers Illis

So where do you think the turnover increase has fallen woefully short in producing a profit increase Either the existing business has turned down or the acquisitions have increased revenues but not profit

On the contrary, I would not want to be out of FSJ. Whilst it is impossible to predict when the business will grow significantly, I think it will do that. They are in markets likely to grow regardless of what economies do.

Indeed Actually the profit before minorities has gone down as has the diluted eps No reason to hold yet

Relief rally? Nice increase in the divi but a PBT decrease just over £200k on a 13% increase in revenue is poor stuff Note the continuing decline in net cash and RoCE

Solid indeed. Well mostly. A bit surprised by the continued weakness of offshore oil. I had expected them to have it stabilised by now. Very high profit leverage as well with profits halving in H1. That works both ways if course. If the utilisation is now increasing as they state then profits will grow swiftly. The limited impact of the fall in offshore oil profits does underscore how small a part of the company this has now become. Noticed a small statement in tankships that they have won a contract to provide two tankers for refuelling of the new carrier (notice my deliberate ommission of the word aircaft). Good to know that its useful for something as well as playing cricket on the flight deck! As usual much is down to H2 to achieve. But the directorspeak is more positive than usual and I think broker analysis is probably too negative at the moment. cheers

Solid results again today, and confidence for a strong second half. The dividend is increased by 10%.---I like it.

Thanks, Illiswilgig. I have to raise a chunk of cash or transfer shares to my sprogs acc. to the terms of the will but have other choices for that. Maybe, in the absence of any bad news peculiar to FSJ (though as I said they seem to have done less well than others this year), it might be a good opportunity to bed and ISA the estate holding and gift my remaining non-ISA FSJ shares to grandchildren. As my tax situation has now changed, I would like to get rid of most if not all of my non-ISA holdings and avoid all the record keeping and tax calculations as well.

illiswig - Is the University's Pension Fund you mention the one that has a deficit of umpteen billion pounds? 70 bn. IIRC or it may have been l7bn. Investing in British companies is not the same as buying the companies though, which is what some overseas teachers pension funds do, is it? However, getting back on topic, FSJ's share price seems to be as depressed as I am. I know everything is down at the moment due to Trump's trumpeting (just as I am finally able to start dealing with my late husband's share portfolios, some of which I planned to sell) but FSJ seems to have dropped more than most. Anyone know why? As all the immediate family already have holdings, FSJ was one of the ones I thought I'd get rid of but I'm reluctant to sell at that price.
