Thanks for that , though not sure at 3.1% would count as a high yielder. Except for the years it pays a special dividend .

Mentioned in the Weekend FT as a good high yield small cap. Maybe that explains some of the sudden rise.

Could be. Probably hedge their material buying too , as well as hedging their exchange rates.

This morning, I spoke to a mate of mine and quite independently of one another we had had an identical thought. The turmoil in the oil markets has caused some quite sharp drops in oil related stocks (both he and I have a small holding in LAM, where we've gone from profit to loss recently). If the drop in oil prices is bad news for so many shares, what industry would you want to be in that can profit from cheaper oil? We both thought of JHD, where we've both also got a small holding and although neither of us have any idea of the figures, a 30% drop in PVC prices has to be fantastic news, it's a very significant part of their raw material costs. I suppose it's possible that JHD buy forward, so any gain wouldn't be immediate. No idea whether the recent rise is related to oil prices and at the current price, I can't justify buying more shares, but it's good to see them up.

Spread has narrowed to 2.75p , up to 312p midprice - looks interesting.

There were some substantial trades last week and I don't have the wherewithal to know whether they were buys or sells, but there were 2 x 200,000 and 1 x 400,000. If the last one was a buy (it was at 300p) and wasn't JHD buying for some r4eason, that should keep the price up for a while to fulfil that order. No idea of how these things work. Anyway, I found out today the AGM is 5th December, same venue as last year, so I'll be trying out the chicken goujons and the cheeseboard again.

Contrary to my scepticism the share price seems to be holding around £3.

305/285 spread makes the displayed midprice of 305 (still) rather misleading still.

Couldn't find anything either , but the volume was pretty low , so wouldn't be surprised if just Noise. And it will be back to 280 tomorrow. Also the midprice is misleading , as ADVFN often seems to quote the Bid price as mid-price , not the Offer price , the true rise was more like 20p , or 7%.

No news, but 8% up today after going nowhere, or drifting downwards, for ages. Any explanation?

Hasn't been affected much either way by the recent market turmoil. Goes XD for 7p this week and looks like a good buying chance given its prospects.

so much bad management around in listed companies at the moment that it's a welcome break when you see a well run firm. Nice one.

I like the look of a share price rise on day before results. Let me hazard a guess , pretax of £45M on turnover of £240M ?

You are right - I was misled by their statement on their website implying manufacturing plants overseas ; "Demand in the fifties grew and Halsteads looked overseas to develop manufacturing and sales capacity by setting up or acquiring satellite companies in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. This strategy continued in the following decades, and Halsteads today are located in China, Russia, Australasia, Europe, Scandinavia, South Africa and Canada. High quality, fit for purpose products are exported all over the world, for schools, hospitals, transport and public buildings" However having carefully read the latest report I see all there is no overseas manufacturing. You are also correct the 258 limit did not trigger. But it is still there.....

wc, Are you sure about overseas factories? I know they source products, mainly tiles, but I'm not aware of them owning any manufacturing capacity overseas (Teesside doesn't count :-)) It looks like you missed your 258 buy point, for a while at least.

I like the last two bits ; In conclusion, as a result of improved trading conditions it is expected that profit before tax for the full year will exceed last year. Cash balances remain healthy and dividend expectations will be met for a 38(th) year of increased dividends.

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.
