Still giggling at the “didn’t understand the share spilt” comment from the seasonal investor!!

Twice as many at half the price !

I haven't sold out, but it's a bit bottom drawer since they did the share split. I didn't like that much.

IC have an article on the results this week , looking at raw material cost rises and the JHD strategy of increasing stock and avoiding bidding for low margin contracts. The Panmure Gordon earnings forecast reduction to 9.7p this year brings the HOLD conclusion (At 232p). I see their last view was hold in October , at about 270p equivalent.

Bonus issue/ stock split my belief is the IHT position is that the date is not 14 Jan but the date of original purchase. Its an artificial construction that alters the share price. Has to be that way or else you'd have to use the original share price for the base cost which would be a nonsense. Another way of doing it is to move from 10p shares to 5p - again twice as many at half the price.

Think of it as 2 6 inch logs versus 12 inch logs. Or two £1 coins in exchange for one £2 coin

OK if it was a bonus in lieu of a dividend (Script) then that would have a new date as you gave up a dividend on that date

40 years of virtually unbroken sales, profit and dividend growth in a basic industry, during which time competitors (including German ones) have gone bust or got out of the business is very impressive. They’ve also done similar share splits in the past and eventually the share price has risen to the pre-split level. I think that’s the logic they’re using again now.

From memory, the Halstead family or family trust count for about 40% of shares, so their interests are closely aligned with private shareholders.

A quick look on a historical share price website shows that in Jan 2000, the share price was the equivalent of about 12p, so any purchase then would be yielding close to 100%.

Each to his own, but I’m happy with my holding and with the way the company is run. With hindsight, I wish I had more.

Just finished reading it , a lengthy tome, longer than previous yrs by recall. It points out that turnover and profit are up 5 and 6% against the 2019 figures; remarkable ! And a record dividend.
Although there are a number of cautions within it about supply chain demand and stock levels being down, if you bear in mind the usual JHD cautious understatement, it seems reasonable to price this a little ahead of the share price levels in 2019.
So hard to imagine it is going to hang around the current 550p (Up 30p on the day), especially once a few brokers upgrades and IC tip come through ( Guessing on the IC one but they do seem to like tipping JHD).
Thought about adding , but these are now 10% of my portfolio so the head says no!
To clarify the distinction between share split and bonus issue just looked at
though I remain unconvinced as to why a bonus issue is a capitalisation of profits.
