Automatated ; I like that word . I think that the Bots are set to trigger at the rise in share price so that they catch an upward trend early. But it creates a positive feedback loop so they then sell on a further rise and take a small profit. It happens so fast that there is no opportunity for a human to get in the way . As you imply it is up to us humans to take advantage of the irrational price rise and sell too. Or just ignore it and hold for the yield.. The Special rumour is just that ; but JHD do have a habit of producing them. 4 in the last 10 yrs and the highest was 30p though I cannot recall if that figure was adjusted for the share split.

Even if there's a special divi, which is only speculation, not a rumour as far as I know, the current P/E is still quite frothy. What I don't understand, as I have no real knowledge of the mechnics of the market is why there are lots of automatated buys when the price goes up a bit.

Spread narrowed nicely to 342/5 . Can I hear the distant rumble of a Special Dividend coming this way?

Yes - All Time HIgh though massive spread 335/350, makes you wonder why. No news I can find.

Looks to be breaking above the 260-340 range that has held it for so long; big jump today

Great end to the week - tickling an all time high.

I see that the share price rise on Friday to 328 was matched by a narrowing of the spread to a penny or so , though not much volume. Perhaps portentous for the new year?

Wad Collector Have a good break! You appear to make sound trading decisions. My boldest move this year has been to exit my largest holding in DVW. So far it has been a good move. I was too timid adding back a few JHD after earlier halving my holding. Merry Christmas everybody!!! z

Moving up again , not that far short of the 343p ATH. Rumours like the above one about special dividends?

I like the flavour of that AGM statement. I traded out then back in , happy to be sitting on a moderate paper profit , but this time plan to hold longer...

After reducing my holding a while ago I added a few back. Wish I had been bolder. Easy with hindsight. Out of DVW my biggest holding to retain just UU. and PNN ahead of the OFwAT announcement later this week. Drinks r on LHG next year. Z

That would be a nice anniversary present for shareholders and bearing in mind that the Halstead family own such a large %age of the company, they'd probably quite like that to happen as well. More importantly, the AGM lasted 8 minutes, the lunch rather longer. The goujons were up to snuff and I enjoyed the individual vegetarian quiches, a new addition to the menu :-)

Talking special dividends, I am expecting there will be a "Centenary" special dividend announced sometime through next year.

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.
