Looks like it could hit 160 pre-results, given that the previous positive trading updates took it above 150 and near to 160

Good results and firm expectations in forward statement could see the share price here climb hopefully to the 170p levels or even higher over the remaining year. Interesting that we are seeing just a small dribble of shares bought and sold most days...difficult to draw any conclusions from this but bulk of holders appear happy to hold. I really hope that foreign based sales are increasing and that the currency benefits boost profits...the company's board have indicated that they are managing costs well and hope this continues as margins are important as we all know!

The market makers seem to want to take it up (gaps up most mornings), so I guess the bots are holding it back for some reason (perhaps keeping it down until right before the results, so they can get a quick in-and-out pop around the results with minimal holding period)

LRD usually gets a summer pop after its July results. After the trading statement, it wouldn't make too much sense, given the global economic backdrop, for them to come out with bad news after good news.

Hopefully we may get a positive run into the latest results due in a week or so...with the recent currency movement profits maybe strong with product demand also increasing. However, looking for a more stable backdrop and measured forward comment on overseas demand across the product range.

hey guys, anyone feel this is a good point to get back in? with the July update coming up following the debt consolidation, does this have legs to get back up to £2? Whats the support for further downward movement?

What Investment - 24/5/17: The share in question is Laird Plc. Dixon commented, ‘Last year was a tough one for the company, involving a series of profit warnings due to an underperforming acquisition and disappointing volumes from a major customer. All of which put undue strain on a stretched balance sheet and culminated in a rights issue. However, with a repaired balance sheet and a new management team in place, the potential for self-help together with evidence of a significant improvement in the underlying trading momentum within the business gives us confidence that we should see positive earnings estimates revisions as this year unfolds with the shares starting at half their mid 2016 levels.’ Http://www.whatinvestment.co.uk/top-investor-small-cap-ive-bought-despite-shares-halving-2553674/

Although the 1Q update was positive after helpful correction upwards (a bit sloppy, perhaps!), it looks as though we have to look forward to the next update to re-affirm improvements in trading and sustainable margins on higher revenues. However, it appears that some holders are being more cautious and are selling some of their rights take-up at 85p.....a bit of a holding pattern ahead, maybe.

Very happy to have bought in here after the rights issue and not surprised at all. I see the share price continuing to rise. Those scaremongers who put this company in the same bracket as IMG, and the sheep that followed, don't understand technology and manufacturing industries, there are a number of reasons why LRD as a supplier is in a much less risky position with regards to the mobile phone market, not least that they are less reliant on Apple as a proportion of revenue and Apple have no incentive whatsoever to take on the design or manufacture of the products LRD provide.

Pleasing results... GSA will not be happy with this update as they have increased their short position recently to 0.61%. I would be surprised if they don't start to buy them back after this update. Onwards and upwards for shareholders.

No response to 2231. Any thoughts as to why Apple shouldn't treat Laird in the same way as they dealt with Imagination Technologies?

The large institutional holders who took a huge hit and have taken up the rights will I believe try to hold the price at around these levels in order to offload their 85p shares to the unsuspecting and recoup some of their losses. Don't get suckered in would be my recommendation. Others may take a different view and I would be interested to hear of any other interpretations of the present situation. CH.

Agree with you 100%...trying to look at where we are on market cap. before the huge and sudden negative news...then looking at the 4 for 5 rights with 85p cost factor, and then trying to determine whether the MC is too high. On balance one must think it is and therefore sentiment will remain somewhat negative for a while...still, hope that they can recover although quite a test for management which may need further help in star quality.

I would be extremely cautious about investing in Laird until some positive news emerges. The mess left and manner of Lockwood's departure was more than reprehensible. The current inexperienced management, who have recently held out the begging bowl, in an attempt to get others to pay for rectifying matters have a long way to go and much to prove before the Company can be trusted again.

Any ideas why we are holding back here...is it due to concerns over similar treatment to that of IMG on their rift with Apple? Not too sure what the sales level and forward contract commitments with Apple for LRD, but I guess the tech supply chain wherever you are based is getting the doubters prevailing. Recent Director buys are useful but relatively modest in the scheme of things, so I guess we just have to wait for the next update.However, I sense that LRD tech advances are quite different to that at IMG.

IMO the re-rating will be MEDIUM-TERM (as noted above) and even that will be governed partly by the next trading update, especially as Apple seem to be playing hardball with their suppliers (eg Imagination Technologies) at the moment.

I would have thought that the rerating might have recommenced. Can anybody explain the lack of price movement?

Not sure what you mean by that. Of course, it was going to be a fully taken up rights issue. My previous comment was simply stating the obvious - that the share price would only make a decisive move once the rights issue had taken effect. Indeed, it did make an understandable decisive move yesterday (downwards) as the new shares became tradable and a decisive move (upwards) today as maybe (non-holders) joined the register. Who knows? churchtower made a valid comment as well, with Apple being a significant (though less important in recent times) customer of Laird. IMO the company has genuine recovery potential, so do not disagree with your belief that the share price is due a re-rating over the medium term.
