I'd been hoping for a special dividend to mark the company's centenary year and management have obliged at the AGM, announcing: "I am pleased to announce that the Board are declaring a special dividend equal to 100% of the final dividend i.e. 7.858p per ordinary share. The special dividend will be payable on 26 February 2016 to those shareholders on the register at the close of business on 18 December 2015."
wad, Back in June in post 1060 I had my tongue firmly in my cheek when I said I would wait until 500p before selling. I agree with you that this share price is defying gravity at the moment, but as I said back then I do not trade on the back of unexplained runs, so it still a hold for me. Good luck all.
Spoke too soon ; got rid of half of my remaining shares at 466. I like JHD but suspect I will be buying these back at a significant discount soon.

The share price has been creeping up today and it is predominantly Buys , but the MMs are stubbornly not rising the offer price so the spread is opening. At some point they are going to have to raise it . And then they can have half of mine.

James Halstead celebrates it's 100th anniversary this year. What better birthday present could there be than a special divi.
even less reason to buy !! but well done to all who are holding on , a 1 billion pound company beckons.
Cum divi till 5th Nov. Will a special divi be annonced at the AGM.? Regret halving my holding some time ago. Z
it is looking toppy to me ,,,,, don't think I am a buyer ..
wad collector A good private client circular is invaluable. If you cannot buy when the circular comes out then you can monitor stocks and go in when appropriate. It helps decision making to diversify a portfolio. The brokers( they appear to shun publicity) who put me into JHD over ten years ago are not currently issuing a useful monthly bulletin. Their charges are much higher than average but I have always felt it was worth it for the excellent bulletin. I may curtail my links with them because of this. z
My spy at Pillings tells me that JHD is tipped in their private client circular this month. For the usual reasons.

When it comes to anything financial , my policy is that I never buy anything that someone is trying to sell me.

Capita Dividend Re-investment plan Got this through the post on my JHD shares. Re invest my div in JHD for a 1% fee. The company say it was not authorised they think the fee and the likely effect of execution only trades will mean a bad price and that have demanded Capita write and with draw it. Outrageous cross selling ?
SP stirring again today - heading back to new ATH , though xd 7.6p in 3 weeks .

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.

Quester - a buy! Shares a bit expensive but this is quality operator !
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.
wad collector
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.
alter ego
The finals out and Geoffrey Halstead says JHD 100 not out!
Interims tomorrow.
