JLG John Laing Group PLC (construction PLUS) Interesting chart and looks ready to break up after a quiet time from when listing. Looks very cheap to me and managed to get some figures to add to the investment case. Insiders move on John Laing. Between them, two principal insiders at John Laing (JLG) shelled out around £293,000 to bump up their personal holdings in the UK infrastructure investment group. The acquisitions by John Laing's chief executive Olivier Brousse and chairman Dr Philip Nolan came on the same day that the group released a broadly positive pre-close update to the market. Total investment commitments now stand at £170m, which is at the upper end of guidance announced at the interim results stage, with realisations on investments approaching the full-year target. Major projects under construction are progressing according to schedule, including the ongoing testing programme on the UK rail network for Phase 1 of the Intercity Express Programme. Once best known as a pure construction play, John Laing is now focused on investments in transport, public private partnerships (PPP), as well as environmental infrastructure projects. Arguably, this lends a slightly more defensive quality to the investment case for the group. IC VIEW: The stock also has attractions for income seekers given a forecast yield of around 3.6 per cent based on a low pay-out ratio relative to net income, which suggests there’s potential upside on offer. The shares now trade in line with the group’s 200-day moving average, but they're changing hands at a paltry six times forecast earnings. With strong earnings growth predicted through 2016, we think it highly likely that the shares will re-rate in due course. We remain buyers.

Yes, that's likely. They distributed the shares to holders and so presumably some of these have subsequently sold. They seem a bargain at below NAV as that values the fund management business at nil. There is the pension deficit risk but this is now pretty well funded following the additional injection at float.

DavR0s - yes it's a lot, but aggregated, not a single block. It occurs to me that Henderson's disposal of its large stake hasn't been fully accounted for in RNSs, and some of the shares may still be looking for safe hands. And might explain the share price weakness between August and November.

Uncrossing - clears the decks at the end of trading by matching buyers and sellers. can usually be ignored.

Purchased some of these this morning. Hold both of their funds as well. It's a quality company with good prospects at a discount to net asset value. More funds to come I guess.

Pre-close update. Reassuringly boring. Realisations since 30 June 2015 for total proceeds of £32.2 million, at prices above portfolio valuation ... This suggests year-end NAV should be ahead of forecasts, and dividend payment will be enhanced by a proportion of excess proceeds. Current full year expectation is 6.86p, but that may include this uplift. Http://www.investegate.co.uk/john-laing-group-plc--jlg-/rns/pre-close-update/201512110700067308I/

Earnings are made up principally from asset sales and asset revaluations: so not really so easy to time. I'd concentrate here on the NAV rather than eps.

The AT bot traders are busy again here. The other day I had a definitive answer to what's going on, from a senior stockbroker at a social do. It's a hedge fund working arbitrage trades between a dark pool and the LSE. The latter are small size of numerous fills in the order book whilst the former could be a very large trade. There is little chance of a PI taking advantage, because either he can't get a quote from a MM close to the AT trades (MMs often retire from the contest by widening their spread) or, most important, because the PI can see only one side of the operation: the LSE trades data. I understand there's a lot of this going on. Grin and bear it.
