|Woodcutter, a company with marketcap as low as LPA wont' attract institutions. People are selling because it's hitting stop losses, so it creates a knock on effect. If you think, as I do this company could do well then this is the time to top up.|
|Indeed he has added LPA to both his ISA and his SIPP|
|No stock available to buy online....flurry of buys on a Thursday afternoon suggest a Naked Trader tip perhaps? His update is due out today.|
|Let's hope so. This company is in danger of over promising and under delivering. It's better to do it the other way round.|
|Watching with interest as I'd like to add a few more. Was hoping to see 140p but buyers are appearing once the 'bid' price hits 145p.|
|can't help but think there's a persistent seller in he market, someone is dumping a few thousand at a time probably an institution trying to lighten their holding.
|support at 140p it needs to hold that or it will go to 120p.
|I've been buying today. Bouncing off strong chart support imo.|
|Big head and shoulder top formed and broken. it needs to break the neckline now to regain trend strength.
|Pleasantly surprised to be able to buy back in (at £1.49) this morning, it appears that there is stock available. Thought I'd made a booboo by selling out (at £1.65) back in December but maybe not.
edit: My buy (2.5k) was marked as a sell by ADVFN, the Mingy Machs using 'smoke and mirrors' tactic as is so often their custom with small cap companies.|
|Did anyone go to the AGM?
Was there much of a presentation?|
|If the earnings growth and other metrics stay good then the share price will be playing catch up at some point.

|Away so not spoken to anyone but don't see reason for drop. T/o is up I am told as I posted and maybe they are covering themselves with slight reduction in margin. With broker not reducing then 12 x forecast EPS looks low. However the market says they are worth 150p so we have a choice to buy or sell.
I remain very bullish but my 300 p looks wide of the mark.
Be interesting to see if any options granted?
|The grammar and syntax are not that bad.
The update is mainly positive IMHO, just some changes, overall it's getting bigger and presumably it will become more efficient in the new premises which would be expected to improve overall margins.|
|I think it may have been a big wooly as it was a report of an AGM statement that was delivered to investors verbally rather than a concise RNS. With WHI maintaining forecasts it's pretty clear what's happening.
I'm not aware of anyone deramping LPA, I merely suggested in post 441 that it was reasonable rather than outstanding value at £1.77 and olliemagern in post 480 pointed out the lower than normal tax rate flattered last year's EPS.
Both posts were jumped on pretty vigorously by the bulls.|
|Surely there must be a nightschool course in Saffron Walden "how to write an rns"?|
|If I was a crook I would be deramping these and buying more.|
|I can confirm hastings summary in post 503 (many thanks ; - )
WH Ireland are comfortable with previous forecasts.

Told first half is running 15/20% ahead of this time last year.
W I are working on a note and will be giving a further upgrade. Management are looking for 2 million before the exc gain which would be very nice.
This year debt will fall by half a million ( 20% ) and the order book is growing fast.
I do feel my 300p is possible but brokers will drip feed the good news as they did last year.
Good old Eric..
|That's good. Maybe WHI ought to read these company releases first to avoid confusion reigning.|
|WH Ireland remains comfortable with its full year forecast of Pre Tax Profit of £1.7m giving EPS of 13.2p.£2.00p target price retained.|
|I agree it was not the best wording. If WHI the broker is not changing numbers then its a storm in a small teacup. The company has not historically over promised and I still believe they have grounds for optimism given the present order book and potential contract wins.|
|Don't think this warrants a 10% share price fall, especially as the share price had previously reduced from highs up to 200p and the fact the business continues to trade well. Buying opportunity.|
|Yes they should, you are absolutely correct. But I cant be to hypocritical as I have used the opportunity to jump on the train!
All the best|
