Not holding breath over a special dividend - the last one was 4 yrs ago and still wouldn't take the yield up to the FTSE all share average. However does look like the share price weakness has passed for now. And the spread has narrowed to an unusually tight 0.3%.

Started to rise again ? Can't get over the pre-close announcing record results and the price dropping but did see press comment quoting the UK situation. Still think we are in special divi territory - again

Agree it is not cheap , but it seems a safe long term investment ; I just bought some back at 430. I worry more about the possibility of a disaster in Korea than the price of materials.

fbrj14 Apr '17 - 08:02 - 1210 of 1228 0 0 Edit "JHD has been a core holding of mine for well over 3 years. In January I took the decision to sell down a chunk (60%) at an average price of 492p and then watched it steadily rise from there! The reason for my (reluctant) decision was principally the p/e which I felt was too high given the actual growth rate and I think borne out by the recent interims. Even now (with the shares down some 45p from their recent highs) it is on a rating of 26x current year's earnings and 27x next year - with an eps growing at 4%. Having said that I would be looking to reinstate it as a core holding if the rating became, in my view, more realistic." For once my timing has been quite good! Following the above post I sold the remaining 40% of my holding at an average of 520p during the spike up in May. Back on the watch list following today's reaction and previous decline....a yield of 3% is not to be sniffed at either.....

It looks as though the market stopped reading before the final paragraph and missed the bit about the company being confident of record turnover and profit :-)

I bought a few last week to tuck away for the long term. Not cheap, but solid long term growth prospects and a reasonable yield.

these are looking like touching £4 again, unless a very good trading statement is forthcoming.

Buy and forget! Not a bargain on fundamentals and the ftse at near ATH does not scream buy to me , but I bought some back earlier this month for an investment not a trade.

I have been in and out several times since the last special dividend ; that was 4 yrs ago. Still not sure I understand the EPS explanation ; income tax only went up form 23 to 23.8%. Anyway we all agree it is a healthy company. I just felt it was overvalued over £5 but happy to buy back cheaper.
