Ta, CC2014. I appreciate your views. Myself, I don't feel confident predicting where this goes in the short term. Further out, half year results will be on 11th July. Those results should be poor and should include the outcome of the review into the Civil Engineering Division. More writedowns to come? Fwiw, I'm likely to give them some time to get their planned improvements working. Therefore, LWB is a hold for me atm and I'll study the full year report on 30th January 2019. Dividend is good and there's potential to double the share price over a couple of years IF they get a proper grip on the business. I like the presence of the Luxembourg duo on the register (akin to a put option?).

Thanks Ed. I should have read it closer. Since you have posted someone has taken out the volume available at 56.2 and unlike last night Peel have not replaced it. I sense this is now ready to move back up to 60 but I suspect it may take a little while. The pattern at the moment on most of the stocks I'm watching appears to be to try and collect stock cheap and then move the price up slowly to entice some more sellers, so I'm not expecting this to move by more than a penny or two per week.

CC2014 It was a sale. Gareth is not a board director but is the head of Interiors and Transport. I don't know why he sold. Sometimes it's simply that a director needs to raise a bit of cash. He has over 600,000 shares under option schemes. Set against that, his sale of 35,000 shares is small. Looks like a few sales in the market following this notice. A check on Level 2 shows the buyer remains in place. There was a very recent trading update, so I don't see this as changing anything.

Looks to me like that Director buy is within an ISA wrapper as it's close to £20k. He got a good price too.

Although not a good time to go atm, due to the new CEO and FD, I wonder if it's time that Martin Flower prepared to retire? He has stewarded Low and Bonar for 17 years, seen managements come and go, but in all that time I don't remember the Group being without some issue or other. Time for a fresh, new chairman? More positively, I was very pleased to see Sterling Strategic build up their large holding. Although they don't have a seat on the Board, I would value any dialogue they had with the Company. I was also encouraged to see the MD of their Investment Committee present at the agm.

We ..... take on big problems .... and spark debate. They're as good as their word. ;-O Trying to think if there were any especially glum faces at the agm. One perhaps glum enough to sell 4 million shares on the next trading day?

Welcome to the Wellcome Trust! So they were behind the £2.2M buy on Monday. The Wellcome Trust has a £23.2 billion investment portfolio (at 30 September 2017) which funds all the work we do. The portfolio is managed by our investment team.

well we have a new 3% shareholder. The Wellcome Trust. Good news I think, although it would be nice to know who sold them the 4m shares.

4 Million share trade has just printed. That's over 1% of the issued equity. Sterling Strategic perhaps?

I'm afraid I have seen the "weak first half but full year expectations unchanged" story too many times. Too many times H2 does not come to the rescue as expected (or wished for). In addition, the trading update is bad news, and we know the H1 results will be bad news too; but even though we know, there is a good chance the market will punish the share again when results are released (even though it may only be repeating the news and filling in some detail); one of Mr. Market's foibles, you might say. For now, I am out. I think if management turns this around there will be time to get back in and get a good upside (even if I miss the first leg up). So this one returns to my watch list... Edit: I cannot read what hvs is saying, but I can guess. One best put on the permanent filter list imo...

Potentially a decent business but beset by weak management.

I just had a quick look at these and I don't think there's much upside in them in a sale or breakup so I don't reckon the activists will push for this personally

hvs is clearly shorting this otherwise why are you here? Not the most well known or fashionable company. I would rather back the judgement of Sterling and the hedge funds who have buying in heavily here these past few months. As for 'plenty plenty debt' the short term/current liabilities are relatively flat over the past 5 years [£88M 2013; £95M 2017] and only up £5M year on year. Fundamentals show a P/E of just 8 and a yield approaching 6% twice covered by earnings. AGM resolutions all passed today. As always DYOR.
