Oof, another special divi! And there was me hoping for a downbeat statement to drop the share price temporarily, so I could buy some more. Never mind....

IMHO this share will progess toward £4.00 again after the share split. Maybe slowly, and dependent, of course, on continuing good results. Their international presence is remarkable. z

Fair comment. The trouble with long term planning is that we might not be here long term!

I'm a fan of Buffett's (who wouldn't be?), but I think there are plenty of other snippets of investment wisdom out there, and having recently re-read Philip Fisher's Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits, I wouldn't want to be out of JHD, even on a performance blip, as over the long term they have performed exceptionally well and I suspect will continue to do so. Would I buy at the current price? I think I probably would if it didn't make up such a heavy portion of my portfolio already, because in 5-10 years time I'd be far more confident of a good investment return than I would holding the majority of other stocks available in the market. However I am wary of a need to show some diversification, so in reality I wouldn't at this moment in time (and headed rapidly towards Xmas with 2 guitar mad teenage boys, and a wife who must think there is a money tree orchard at the bottom of the garden, spare cash isn't something sloshing around in my household at the moment!). 0 :-D Saint

I don't often trade JHD , but 661p seemed out of proportion.I agree this has been a great stock , but would you buy in at 661p?

Hi Saint or Sinner You may not see this retracing but on my calculation the PE ratio just after the results in each of the last five years has been: 2008 10, 2009 12, 2010 15, 2011 18, 2012 22. It just is not going to go on increasing at the same rate. All sorts of homely wisdom comes to mind, such as Buffett's 'you pay a high price for a cheery consensus'. All it needs is one slip and that premium PE ratio will disappear. You may think it's ultra-safe, but in my view it is rather high-risk. So, after nipping in and out quite a bit over the last eighteen months, I am now out altogether. But then I am a value rather than a growth investor. Good luck! It takes two to make a market.

Hope you haven't missed the boat as I don't see this retracing. Can't for the life of me think why anyone want want to try to nip in and out of this stock. Makes up some 50% of my portfolio by value now, and to be honest given how it has performed over the last 10 years I wish it had been 100%. 0 ;-D Saint

The market seems less impressed by the results than we are.I don't mind as I took profits of most of mine at 661p and am looking to buy back.Currently a 40p spread ,so not yet!

Haven't poured over the results with a fine toothcomb, but on the face of it, they look stonking to me - along with the divi hike and the proposed bonus share issue...

I just unloaded some of mine at 662p.This may turn out to be a bad decision , but it has been such a good run recently that I reckon a retracement must be on the horizon somewhere. Time will tell.

Some small Buys have just gone thorugh at 665p (with some 635p sells - the MMs must be happy!) and the bid /offer has gone up to 675/645.This is impressive inflation - is something in the woodwork here , or just the usual confidence? I am tempted to sell some here, but was determined to keep holding.Not sure now.

How's the sale of Karndean / Polyfloor going at Victoria Plc, if it's stocked? From your website, your company has recently moved into the luxury vinyl floor market.

Had to smile about that our flooring plc - Victoria. 3 non-execs caught out trying to give themselves big bonuses.

Goldman Sachs had us down for 30 gold but i think 28. I hear Halstead supplied most of the flooring, and that Mr Boyle recreated Radliffe in the stadium.To be fair he was born in Radcliffe - wonder if he knows it was local Polyflor around him

Good British companies are doing well in Asia. Halstead's global reach is serving them well. Looking forward to the results! z

Yawn, the usual story here.More records.A bit like our Olympic Teams (apart from the records). Touching £6 now - another record. Glad I hold!
