* Operating profit increased to a record GBP21.3 million - an increase of 2.1% * Pre-tax profit increased to a record GBP21.6 million - an increase of 2.2% * Basic earnings per ordinary share increased to a record 7.7p - an increase of 6.9% * Interim dividend increased to a record 2.75p - an increase of 10% * Net cash at GBP51.9 million * Proposed special dividend of 7.0p The Chief Executive, Mr. Mark Halstead, commented: "Having, once again, achieved record profits and with a bulwark of a strong balance sheet it is pleasing to announce another special dividend. But it is clear market conditions are not easy, it has been difficult for many companies since the financial crisis of 2008 affected us all. We have since that time raised turnover by 54% and profit by 193% which is clearly testimony to our strength." http://uk.advfn.com/news/UKREG/2013/article/56939075

lundhousegreen Thank you for the two company names. As well as JHD I have some FCRM and may go back into BPM. Recommended but again not without risk. I went to the FCRM AGM last year. Slow orders/lack of orders caused a pull-back of the share price a couple of months later. They would expect to benefit from building expansion but that may be slower to come through than the government would like. I believe that FCRM may also get some infrastructure work from 'fracking' but that work, if it comes, is some years away. z

Yes, you are correct that all "junior" Aim stocks are included. The only other Aim stocks I have apart from JHD are Transense, and Gulf Keystone, a couple of high riskers. LHG

lundehousegreen I believe that AIM stocks are also exempt from Inhertance Tax. Do you follow any others? z

As I understand from The Budget, it looks like JHD shares will be exempt from stamp duty and will be ISA'able from April 2014.

With all the sells over the last couple of trading days, the price going up on Thursday, and steady on Friday, I wonder if there is a big buyer in the background? Guess we'll have to see how the price fares this week, and if a large buy trade appears.

I have always considered this share as leaning towards being a defensive stock, so I disagree that the share will "tank" if the rest of the market falls. IMO. DYOR.

Having doubled my money in three years I have decided to sell at 298p for no other reasons than not to be too greedy and lock in my profits. Also just slightly concerned that the whole market will tank and drag JHD down with it.

Ha ha! That's the feeblest de-ramp attempt I've ever seen on a message board! They've brought the date forward by one day because the market isn't open on 29th March, Good Friday. It's what's known as a mistake. You may be right that the habitual increase in turnover/profit will be difficult to sustain, I'm amazed they've kept it going as long as they have, but I doubt anything will be affected much by changing the results announcement by 24 hours.

and moving results date now aswell,,,,,,,i dont like that either.it's a good company , and has done well, but that means its share price can afford a good pull back.

I cant see them announcing on 29 March Its Good Friday !!! I think Gripfit has a point about trouble it 3s 1. At AGM is tough 2. Yesterday 7-8% down 3. Interims will obviously be OK but there was no mention of NOW I think JHD will struggle to beat the full year but heck they are nearly 50% ahaed of 2008 in terms of profit - who else is. And the share price was 137p then (2 spilts) vs 289 - 200% up and with good div.

JHD flat'ish on the day, at 3-20pm. (298 / 305p). Investors now read the announcement thoroughly and properly?

I think that statement has probably shaken off a lot of the people riding the crest of this wave. It sounds like the time of record profits every update and easy money are over for JHD but this is still a solidly profitable company with no debt, a big pile of cash and an enviable market position and rep. The share price is back down to close to what I would consider a sensible level. It will be interesting to see what happens if that "modest increase in profits" doesn't materialise at the half year results.

The special divi needs board approval, which is surely a given, especially after today's negatively received statement. The Halstead family control over 40% of the shares and they might like a bit of extra spending money, just like any other shareholder, so it's hard to imagine they'd have made the announcement and then vote against it. Cash reserves are up according to today, so even more reason to do it. I have no idea what it might be, December speculation (uninformed in my case) on here was 5p, after bonus issue.

Has the special dividend been 'guaranteed'? At what level is it expected? Surely it is anyway discounted in the share price and the share price will fall accordingly ex div? I agree about the pre-announcement slide. I had been trying to find out why mid January 6/7% drop whilst the market was going north. None of the brokers I know had a clue - though they felt the usual no smoke without fire.

warnings come in 3's............ i think that is the second 'break the ice gently' , the 3rd one may do the damage. hope not.Funny how the price crept down over the past few days, insiders allways seem to know first . imho.

The markets only pick out " sales down 7 to 8%", but probably this should have read the other way round, i.e., sales down 3.5 to 4% but if you include the cessation of Phoenix , a one off cost, and forex swings, then it is nearer 7 to 8%. Profits still expected to increase (at a decreased rate of knots than before, but the amount of record profits, etc., had been quite incredible) and there's the carrot of a tasty special dividend in a couple of months. Probably worth topping up before some of the brokers/ instituions do so IMHO.

The Market isn't impressed this morning - currently down 12%. Time to add?
