Hi roddie, yes indeed, I am very pleased. If only I got to read results like that every morning! Despite the usual caution the Board sound very optimistic. Nice little uptick in dividend as well. I note that off-shore oil, whilst apparently stabilised, is still at very low levels so plenty of scope for improvement here. The low level of profitability implies to me that there is unused capacity here. Presumeably in the UK area - so any uptick here should increase profitability rapidly. Tankships seems to be thriving at the moment. Better than I expected. Good progress with the windfarm maintenance contracts as well. While this is all very good I did seem that there is still an overall cash outflow, buying new tankers, funding projects and developments - leading to an increase in net debt. I look forward to this reversing rapidly at the year end, increasing the profitability and giving scope for more acquisitions which are no doubt on the horizon!!! cheers

Results are positive on all fronts . Long term holders should be pleased: more later today.

Hello illis Up over £19 during today`s trading in the usual plethora of very small trades. I agree, the BOD don`t do unfounded optimism ( similarly at CML ). It is rarely so warm at sea as on land, so the continuing fine weather should have been favourable for any contract related to rig maintenance or servicing. We know that even mothballed rigs need maintenance.

Well. With the share price up over 1800p again today, this board seems resolutely determinded not to take note of the recent strength. Another 6 weeks or so to the interims, but with the period end of June the board likely already have a good view of their progress. The AGM statement at the start of May was quietly confident (the Co is not prone to unbounded optimism) 'Looking ahead, all four of our divisions appear well set with Marine Support and Offshore Oil leading the way. The Board therefore believes that the Group's outlook for the year is positive and that James Fisher continues to be well placed to provide further growth and value for shareholders. ' Quite a change to see 'Offshore Oil leading the way' and I rather suspect the recent share price strength is looking to interims above expectations by a tad, cheers

Roddie. i think you have hit the nail on the head. Spotty teenager/maybe, market makers whacking the price with no background reason....hoping for a minor panic from holders and then stocking up on the cheap.

The following is the last paragraph from an article on stock market statistics-- "Trying to identify the number of active private investors with non trivial holdings in the UK is somewhat problematic, but looking at the readership of publications such as Investors Chronicle and tip sheets that appeal to such investors, it is probably at best a few hundred thousand although some may simply rely on their stockbrokers for information (they may even hold “discretionary” accounts), or do not actively trade. There are also an unquantifiable number of execution only traders who trade actively but move in and out of the market – in other words who are short term speculators. These may even trade in CFDs or via spread betting so do not appear in any of the above statistics." Worth a read:-- hxxps://www.sharesoc.org/investor-academy/advanced-topics/uk-stock-market-statistics/ There may be a pool of very small active investors/ short term traders who account for much of the daily activity in many shares . The internet has made it possible for anyone to trade cheaply and easily. I know of a schoolboy who regularly trades with very small amounts : why not? A tax inspector told me that they get people whose tax returns include hundreds of small deals a year.

Me neither. One would have expected the share price to rise y'day as buyers would want to get the div. and that it would have gone down today when it went x-d but the reverse has happened. I shall bide my time now as regards the selling till the price has recovered and may buy more if the price comes down again and I will use limit orders now the end of year deadline is past.

yes - as u will have seen - i have been grumbling about this for years, (thanks your understanding) - on this one, and still can not to get to the route cause of it ! And all this volatility in a company which has shown remarkable steadiness in its results over a long time.

Good morning, I don't pay much if any attention to trades, so can't really comment. But it is the last day of the tax year, so if you are right tomorrow should see an end to those tiny trades. cheers

I had the same problem trying to buy 500 in my son's ISA which in some ways I can understand more as there is not a lot of volume. Again, I let it go so we've missed the dividend on that one. Can you understand people buying/selling 11 or fewer shares? Perhaps that's the MMs getting rid of the differentials when people bed and isa-ing and end up with fewer shares for their money. I really don't understand what was going today unless it was just the end of tax year b&i deals which threw the market. The share price ought to go down further tomorrow when it goes x-d.

Boule, Yes weird isn't it. I've noticed recently with the increased volatility that on line sales are often rejected. Selling seems a lot more prone to this than buying. Particularly on down days. I even had trouble selling some HSBC shares this week. But a few minutes later it all worked - and I got a better price. Fisher has such low volumes I'm not suprised its worse. Like you chose in this instance I either trade online or I don't trade. Good luck, cheers

emerald, Whilst I understand the basics of algorithms ( having just read up on them ! ), I have no idea how prevalent they are in day to day trading in any one stock. In that respect , I am an old dog who can`t be taught new tricks. How things have changed. When I first bought shares over fifty years ago, I used to speak occasionally to a partner in E.B. Savory Miln. He would recommend a few investments ,and confirm those in writing to me. I would choose one or two, and act on his advice; that advice was always good. As a very small fish, I was lucky to have this contact. My boss was his nephew. It was not until many years later that I had adequate savings to invest larger amounts, but my earlier experience stood me in good stead. I don`t pay much heed to daily price movements , unless they are accompanied by good volume. I try to concentrate on the story.

Roddie - interested to hear your views on mine above. I think it's actually algorithm activity.

Phillis is almost certainly right about the market makers.They regularly have a field day here ,in flurries of small trades. There were three large trades 1459p. on Wednesday.

There's probably little volume because few want to sell. My family are certainly hanging on to ours.

roddie IF I were a holder something would need to be more obvious for me to sell I am not a buyer because I feel there is nothing extra in the valuation The MMs march the share price up and down on v little volume - actually pathetically little Have a look at Dechra for a REAL growth stock with a fancy rating

Roddie You make a v good point about the consistency of the company's results. Is it a bit strange therefore, that the share price is characterised by such extraordinary volatility ? I suppose this not a bad thing as it allows adding on the dips. There seems to be a lot of algorithm trading too - deals that involve just single digit trades. All very out of keeping with a very nice and steady performance over a long time. Still seem on the cheap side to me.

Phillis , After today`s strong rise in good volume ,I guess you have changed your stance from " fancy rating " to extra virgin fancy .

illiswilgig, Well done for adding recently. I don`t have much to add to what you have already said. My stance remains strong hold . On the 13/2/18 , over on Shareprice, I said this :- " Their strategy of diversification ( both geographic and by product or service offering ) has enabled the company to compensate for the downturn in Offshore Oil. "---They have done well to achieve this. As Offshore Oil has diminished, so Marine Support has increased. Today we have the announcement that Fergus Graham is being promoted to the BOD, and will be in charge of Marine Support from 1/3/18---: preparation for growth to come? They have consistently increased the dividend in double digits for more than 20 years ; I think it is 21 or 22 now.
