John, how you and I read accounts clearly varies. It's the blind reliance on trading updates that I find puzzling, but I'm a fan of whatever works for you. At the end of the day it all comes down to numbers, and if you're making the returns no one can argue with that in any shape or form. In terms of JLH and their fabulously upbeat trading update, I would just wonder why ther winter sale was extended for so long, followed alomst immediately by a new Spring sale. You mention an upturn in sales but in terms of hard numbers, I see nothing to support that. Maybe I'm missing something.
Georgeghutton18 Mar '21 - 18:06 - 219 of 221 0 1 0 You guys seriously need to learn how to read accounts. That's your least helpful remark so far, George. Myself and others on here are full-time investors with many years' experience in "reading accounts". No one can be under any illusions as to the headwinds facing JLH. Nor did anyone argue that they have a strong balance sheet. The vast bulk of my investments are in companies with very strong balance sheets that are going through a period of poor trading which has trashed the share price. However, putting money into poor quality companies - like JLH - that are experiencing an upturn in business and are not in short-term liquidity difficulties is also a strategy that produces very high returns, if the price paid is low. Not ALL such investments will come off, but in aggregate it works handsomely.

Good to see this. I bought a lot in the summer on this playing out, but the opportunity cost was too great Vs other opportunities and i sold out to break even. Congrats to those who’ve seen 100% since then
You guys seriously need to learn how to read accounts.
I agree, Davidosh. Forward guidance looks very good. Interim performance better then could be expected. I've been happy to put in some pocket money in recent weeks, as the hints of improved trading make the shares look under-valued. They do have a habit of disappointing expectations however!
Full year to June 20 and the interims to December 20 were released this morning. As the investors and market tend to be looking forward by six months I think i can safely say this looks far more promising than it has done in six years... Current Trading and Outlook Our despatched sales and forward orders (which we consider to be the best measure of current trading) for the first 35 weeks of trading of the current financial year stood at GBP6.2 million (2020: GBP5.7 million). Future orders against which a first stage deposit has been taken stood at GBP2.1 million (2020: GBP0.7 million), of which GBP1.5 million is currently scheduled for completion by the 30 June 2021 year end (2020: GBP0.5 million). Therefore, the total of all despatched sales and forward orders is GBP8.3 million, which is 30% ahead of the corresponding period in the previous year, which was prior to the first lockdown beginning on 23 March 2020. Quotation activity within the business continues to be substantially up on the previous year which reflects a sustained consumer interest in home improvements.
An investor and a trader are having lunch. The trader knocks his knife off the table to see the reaction of the investor. The investor puts out his hand to catch it and the knife cuts him. Why on earth did you do that asks the trader ? I thought it would bounce replies the investor ......... Any company that has made losses five years in the last six, borrows from a specialist high risk high cost lender with onerous covenants as traditional lenders take flight, has a board that includes a new member with a string of insolvencies, a balance sheet that will probably include large net current liabilities when they are eventually published after multiple dubious delays, has its roots still stuck in bricks and mortar retail with about a dozen shops producing about 600k each at best, but none the less talks it up going into undoubtedly the strongest headwinds since WW2 despite having one sale after another, well it’s your money.
I think the company now have the right board and management team in place. Just need to get Covid kicked into touch and the demand should be there as kitchens, bedrooms and home office/study will be high priority in homes. I am totally biased though and a long term holder so dyor as ever.
"No one else noticing a pattern here ? Apparently not." Actually, in previous years, the updates have been poor and the results have been poor too. No position.
Why is it the trading updates are always so upbeat and ‘best ever’ yet the actual results so absolutely dire ? No one else noticing a pattern here ? Apparently not.
wonder if this can recover. trading update wasnt too bad
But they couldn't post their results because of the COVID announcement that hadn't happened. I guess someone at JLH owns a time machine.
munehisa homma
no results yet despite the trading statement saying they would be before end of October
Nah just a death twitch
is there life in this share ?
Amazing. Just so fun to watch. A fool and his money are so easily parted.. The market makers must be loving this - bet they were getting more than a little worried about being left holding the baby. Check out the shiny new director's previous form. On the RNS list it details about half a dozen as being bust. But have a look at the rest - I think they nearly all are. oops
nice. someone just bought over 1% of the company
this company is going bust
Some nice new board members, new notifiable shareholders and 25 bid at 50. Nice.
"Sales for the 6 months to 31 December 2019 were £3,345k and the loss before tax was £398k. In the equivalent period to 31 December 2018, sales were £3,666k and the loss before tax was £327k" Time for yet another pat on the back methinks. "However, with the quoted business at the highest level seen within the Company's history, we are confident that once normality resumes within the country and the economy, the business is poised to move forward once again." Absolutely. And why not. Of course it will. It'll be like nothing has changed. Back to normal. I'm just curious. About the phrase 'move forward once again'. And to the 40p upticker; way to go mate. No one'll notice that.
Just a quick thank you to the guy who paid 50p yesterday - made the whole floor laugh til it was almost painful.
Excellent advice I think but these are small cap stocks and not really for traders as you need liquidity. As a trader those are certainly key points but investors tend to look far more long term and my average company holding time is probably around seven years so a bit like buying a property and settling down through each phase of life really. Additionally I do not want too much excitement just good quality management looking after what I hope to be higher than average companies with potential. This one has certainly not worked out so far and it is over ten years that I have been a day Rodders !!
I’m a trader. A mate asked me have a look so I dug in a bit. It just annoys me when people are taken for a ride. My advice ? If I was long I’d get out, but I’m in no way qualified to offer advice so bear that in mind. But if you really want advice then buy Reminiscences of a Stock Operator. Get it delivered in time for Christmas. When you’ve read it ten times you’ll start to get a real picture. The only other advice I’m not at all qualified to give is that I would never ever buy a share where the bid offer spread is so wide, the liquidity is shocking or where management think they’re doing well whilst losing money. Best of luck. G
Georgeghtton......What do you recommend? Are you in the industry or just an interested observer?
