The Telegraph tip last week as above; Comment James Halstead 398p-13.25p Questor says BUY JAMES Halstead [LON:JHD], the manufacturer of floor coverings, maintained an impressive 40-year track record of rising dividends, after announcing record profits and revenue in full-year results yesterday. The Manchester-based company is celebrating its centenary year and has become one of the world leaders in vinyl flooring. Vinyl may sound very Seventies, but Halstead has invested in creating technically advanced flooring that is both low-cost and hard-wearing. These attributes mean it is demanded across the world by hospitals and schools. Halstead has an attractive business for several reasons. It is difficult for new companies to start up and compete because of the high cost of the machinery required to produce its kind of flooring. The company’s manufacturing process also benefits from years of technical expertise, which lowers costs and is difficult to copy. James Halstead’s global reach has reduced any reliance on one particular market and helped spread commercial risks. The group generates about 35pc of sales in the UK, 43pc from Europe, 15pc in the Far East and 7pc from the rest of the world. The company is also helped by sales of flooring having a certain degree of predictability. Gordon Oliver, finance director, said that about 80pc of business was refurbishment of buildings such as offices, shops and restaurants, with the balance going to new infrastructure projects such as hospitals and schools. Sales are, therefore, not dependent on big building programmes. This was all demonstrated in the results, with revenue up 1.7pc to £227m, pre-tax profits up 5.8pc to £44.2m, and the dividend increased to 11p. The 7.8p final dividend goes ex-dividend on November 4 and will be paid on December 4. Halstead also looks in good condition from a balance sheet perspective. The shares are backed by net assets of £105m, or about 51p per share, and there was £47m in net cash at the end of June. We said the shares were good for the long term (Buy, 330p, March 31) and although a bit expensive on 25 times earnings, this is a quality operator. Buy.

Seems the market was underwhelmed by yesterdays impressive results , presumably expecting even better. I am not complaining , bought back some this morning at 399 ; happy to take a quick 6%. Not one I usually trade with , so will go back to armchair mode with this one.

good results, solid, well run company. Have a holding and would love to add to it but as usual the rating is far too full to be buyable.

Tidy looking statement , which when the traditional understatement here is factored in , looks particularly positive. Maybe I won't get the opportunity to buy back my recent sells !

Sure is, but I can't work out why his holding is now 6,186,680 when the last report & accounts had him down for 8.2 million.

CEO holding onto all his 80,000 share options is a vote of confidence.

Such honesty ; seldom found on BBs ; many of the others seem to be full of retrospective traders.

Waddy I have lost my nerve. I burned my fingers so many times on Penny Shares that they call me the 'Black Hand Gang' The tortoise beat the hare in the old fable and we are content to 'watch the paint dry' as long as we can now re-paper the walls with a growing divi notices. z

Just noticed I accidentally put my limit sell on a one day timescale yesterday , fortuitous as gone up more today so just changed it to 430. Z , your long term strategy has worked well here , but don't you hate watching paper gains drift away when the price falls back?

I put a 425 limit sell order for some more of mine. I like JHD but the share price looks ripe for a fall to me.

Agree ; hard to justify price on fundamentals ; might be a good time to sell some more. But that is what I thought last week and then it went up 20p!
