No special? But at last the spread has narrowed to 0.75p - not seen that for a while here.

Seem solid enough for me given the current climate. I shall be happy continuing to hold, and should there be any sort of sell off I will accumulate more.

Spiking back up towards £3 . Perhaps the usual upwards trend is about to recommence?

alter ego, Thanks for that info. In the end, TDW did a deal where the spread came right down as you indicated, but they also took a buying commission and I didn't notice until afterwards that it was higher than their usual commission, my fault for not asking. I did toy with the idea of moving the whole portfolio (such as it is) elsewhere, but it's such a faff and inertia is a big obstacle.

Trigger Blade, that 's not good enough. I managed to sell and repurchase a very substantial shareholding a day or so ago where the normal spread would be anything up to 1p for a buy price of .02 of a penny more than the selling price. The trade involved 230000 shares so the mm took just £46 on the spread. The broker was Selftrade. They also managed to get the deal done at very close to the bid price reducing the stamp duty on the repurchase. TD Waterhouse should be ashamed.

alter ego, I just tried to do that with TD Waterhouse Direct Investing, who, as unhelpful as ever, said that all they could do was sell them and buy them back and I'd have to live with the normal spread. I think I might try and find a more customer focussed broker :-)

Thanks for that . I shall probably look to sell and buy for a small gain instead.

Just ask your broker to arrange a matched trade. This normally can be achieved with the market maker taking about £50 instead of the usual spread. You will of course have to pay your broker commission for sale and repurchase plus stamp duty but you should be able to sell and buy back at a much narrower spread than normal.

Yes, it seems unreasonable for a broker to make a turn on a share that you are only selling because that's what the rules say. Would your broker do a narrow spread deal, after all anything he makes is a bonus? Actually, the close tonight looks like 268/270.50, so pretty narrow by JHD standards, possibly the right tome to get them shifted!

I was hoping to add some more to my ISA today , but suspect that the new ISA rules have pushed this up in the last week. I will wait. Shame cannot transfer holdings into the ISA - you could at one point I recall. The spread is a disincentive for sale and buy.

A significant 8% rise in the share price as I write - is something going on?

Trading "solid". Profits within expectations range, flooring turnover down 2%. Hope all this has already been factored into share price as it's already 25% off the highs of the year. http://uk.advfn.com/news/UKREG/2013/article/58614012

The drop depends on your starting point, it's already down 25% from 320p. There were people on here suggesting the price was likely to fall back, based on the heady P/E, I hoped they were wrong. As for a profit warning, I think (and hope) that might be a bit dramatic, but 30 years of increased profits cannot be sustainable forever. If profits are down, surely the divi has to increase anyway, as a sign of director confidence?

looks like it's getting ready for a profit warning to me. 500 mill mkt cap could easy handle reduction to 450, that's 10 % , which equates to £2.25 share price possibly .

I have a mate with a small flooring business and a few weeks ago, he decided to set up a Twitter account. He was thrilled a few days later to find out that Halstead's had signed up as a follower. I'm unsure what the upside is for him, or for them. I'm not Luddite about these things but I find it incredible that Halstead's can get dragged into a legal dispute about something they've sent out into the ether. It surely wasn't a strategy to destabilise Tarkett and it will end up as a distraction. They should leave this kind of mobile phone nonsense to footballers and minor celebrities and concentrate on what they're really in business for. In my opinion of course :-)
