JHD is no longer a UK business - it has significant overseas factories which mitigate the Sterling strength. Also , if you read the last statement , they have hedged between 25 and 100 % of the next years exchange rate. Presumably , when Europe eventually recovers , the Euro will rise again , so this is a temporary Sterling strength. I just set another buy limit for 258 . One day I think I will profit from these purchases. (Not this month!)

With the rise of sterling and with Europe still in trouble and very competitive the margins will be inevitably further squeezed.

Hope so ; I will have some more. I think these are a safe long term bet , as much as any stock can be. Not paying this spread though.(15p)

Agree JHD is fully valued, some would say overvalued, given growth forecast at just 2% and 5% for next two years. 3%+ yield gives support but rating is too high IMO.

I suppose if you're looking for spectacular share price growth, choosing a share that's produced profit growth for 30 consecutive years and with a P/E close to 20 may not be the right strategy. If anything, it's doing well to hang on close to £3.

held these for ages - but they stubbornly refuse to increase beyond their comfort zone of 2.80-3.20. James Latham have been much more fun, as have Howdens much as they have fallen off a cliff lately !

If the spread would narrow a little then I would add into this dip.

The 2014 and 2015 profit forecasts are about 15 and 16p per share ; which are covering the prospective 3.1 % yield by about 1.8x . But JHD has a habit of outperforming its forecasts hence the specials. Agree it is not going to be a big capital gainer or a big income stock , but it sits in a good niche.

That's true but the ordinary dividend is only covered about 1.6 times by projected eps so where's the special divi going to come from? I'm not saying JHD hasn't done well over the years but I do think it's living on it's past at the current rating given the outlook.

Don't be misled by the headline yield - look at the special didvidend history. It is not modest.

marvels? What I marvel at is anyone prepared to but a stock that's on a forward p/e of 21+ and forecast growth of 3% and a modest dividend. It may be a good solid stock but strikes me as seriously overpriced.

New high today , though low volume and wide spread. Word out about the marvels of JHD on some brokers floor?

JAMES HALSTEAD PLC Pre Close Trading Statement James Halstead plc, the commercial flooring manufacturer and distributor, is providing the following trading update ahead of its interim results for the half-year to 31 December 2013. In his AGM trading update, on 6 December 2013, Mr. Geoffrey Halstead noted that he was pleased to be able to report growth in turnover, albeit modest, both in the UK and in our overseas markets. Central Europe and in particular France were continuing to grow with Australia and New Zealand on a par with last year. However, Mr. Halstead did also give a word of caution that December is always an unpredictable month, and in the event December was not a good month with many of our major markets trading below the same month the previous year against a trend of consistent positive results. Nevertheless, revenue for the 6 months to December 2013 was 2% ahead of the previous year. Taking the above into consideration it is expected that profit before tax will be in line with forecasts and around 3-4% below the record prior year interim profit.

I bought my ISA holding back in at 317 ; I think this could become a traders share! I want more if it drops much below £3 again.

I have no idea what a healthy looking chart is! 339 was higher than I could have got earlier I've been wondering whether to get out briefly in the expectation of a drop. The P/E is currently well over 20 and the dividend isn't great as a %, the price surely can't keep going up?

I managed to sell my non-ISA holding for 339 this morning (not showing up on the trade history for some reason).Rather pleased with the price. I am only selling in order to buy back into my ISA , as I suspect another dip will be on the horizon .
