Indeed ; the New Year is starting with a healthy looking chart , though todays intraday chart is wrong - mid-price been around 335 all day not the 339 indicated.

Irrespective of the duration of the AGM, the price looks to be convincingly trending up again after the falls of the first half of the year.

Maybe neither of you went to the Real AGM? Will you both go next year for 8 minutes?

The meeting did start slightly early. I timed it at about 8 minutes. Driving the extra miles meant just coffee or orange juice. Frustrating drive to and from the venue.Lane 4 of the M60 from the North not a nice place.(no moving traffic) Was stopped in all heavy traffic for ages around the M62 / M60 junction. On the return journey back home, it took 20 minutes to get 1/4 mile from stadium to motorway due to road works around the area. Nice enough venue but no rail / tram links.

Orange juice and coffee in my case, due to the less rail friendly venue. It's a very neat stadium and will be better when there's a proper road in and out back to the M60. New venue, same chicken goujons and cheeseboard :-) Next year, I'm going to run a book on how long the AGM will last, in increments of 10 seconds, £1 to enter. I'll set up a desk by the door. This time, all ten resolutions were passed and the meeting closed by 12.05.

JAMES HALSTEAD PLC Chairman's Statement to the Annual General Meeting James Halstead plc, the commercial flooring company, will hold its AGM today at 12.00 noon at which the Chairman, Mr Geoffrey Halstead, will make the following statement: As is customary, I would like to give you an update on trading now that we are five months into the current financial year. In my report on the results for the year ended 30 June 2013 I noted that the seeds of recovery were patchy but apparent and I am pleased to be able to report growth in turnover both in the UK and in our overseas markets, albeit modest. Central Europe and in particular France are continuing to grow with Australia and New Zealand on a par with last year. Raw material supply and input prices are steady with overheads under close scrutiny, as they should be, in these challenging times. December is always an unpredictable month but as we stand today I believe our first half results will be in line with management expectations. Our cash balances continue to be solid underpinning the 6p dividend paid today which is an increase of 9.1% on that of last ENDS

Might be a background purchase being worked through? Anyway, the rise is a welcome sight (and a little overdue if I do say so myself). :-)

I wanted to sell some and have been put off by the spread , but suddenly I was offered a price of 306 and sold just over 3000. Ten minutes later the trade still is not showing ; haven't seen that happen before. These were outside my ISA , so I plan to buy back inside my ISA on weakness. An hour later the trade is still not showing - I worried that I had sold the wrong share for a minute. I dare say it will show up eventually but I have never seen such a delay before ; quite misleading if you only have level 1 data. .....later... Now finally showing up as a trade . Curious spike today- highest for a while , on no news.

Looks like it may be starting the next leg up ahead of the January pre-close trading statement.

I used to go to a lot in London and enjoy other aspects of London as well as the AGM. With JHD (which was for me a more significant holding until I halved it last year) it was a chance to chat various regular attendees and, whilst in the North, to visit my surviving friends and relatives. Investment Trusts were good to go to as the fund managers gave presentations about their key investments market trends etc. I only have one Investment Trust currently. Must be getting old. Hope this company gets on a roll again. z

I have a pair of nail clippers, that's about as offensive a weapon as I possess :-) I have a very modest shareholding and have never attended any other company's AGM, I go to this one for social reasons to meet up with ex-colleagues. I would say the attendance is a very small number of fund managers and a few PIs, some of whom are current or ex-employees. Given the company's performance over the last 30 years, the scope for axe-grinding nutters is somewhat limited and the AGM lasts only as long as it takes Geoffrey to read his statement and to vote through the various motions.

I am impressed by all you attendees . I guess it depends how big your holding is , but are AGMs not full of silent well heeled fund managers and a couple of axe-grinding Nutters who want to complain about something? Just thought ; do either of you own an axe ?

Well, the change of venue's a personal blow. A recent house move meant that I could have walked to my local station and taken the train to Bolton. I'd planned to enjoy the JHD hospitality to the full, including the fish goujons and the cheese board. Now it will have to be a drive to Salford, with no guarantee that the car won't be up on bricks afterwards, and a J2O :-)

I have attended half a dozen or more AGM's even though I am a Lancastrian now living in the South. I usually made the AGM part of a few days back in the North and have also stayed at the Bolton Holiday Inn a few times(including 3 nights recently). I halved my JHD holding about a year ago to diversify after it had stormed ahead for so many years. Will miss this year's AGM but hope the stock recovers its former momentum. z

It's only the share options they have sold. I would do the same for a nice pre Christmas bonus. Still leaves Mark Halstead with just under £25million of shares, and Gordon Oliver with about £625,000 worth of shares plus the remaining options. Probably sold to pay tax or other personal reasons rather than anything sinister or lack of confidence in the company.

2 Directors each selling 150k shares today is not exactly a vote of confidence in the company ; though who knows what their personal circumstances are? I put in a 301 sell limit earlier today and am puzzled as to why it was not triggered despite some smaller subsequent sells at 302.

Went to the AGM last year and thought the capacity was OK but the food was becoming iffy. I think somewhere more convenient for all would be better. There are lots of other venues near the M6 and M60 in the Bolton & Bury area.

AGM venue less convenient for soft Southerners. Was the Bolton, Holiday Inn's converted church/chapel area becoming too small? Z

I note that the AGM venue has been changed to The Salford City Stadium, Eccles, Manchester on Friday 6th December.

It has finally stuck its head over the £3 parapet again. I sold a few but only because I need to for IHT.
