The Market Manipulators appear to be soaking up periodic selling (c.106p) without dropping the price ..... I wonder why?

Not seeing any graphs in the header. Not seeing a share price change for a few days. Should have been an RNS. Will have to check trades, though it has always been thin.

I can see NO share performance targets set against the award of the options by the LPA BoD This IMO is wrong The award has been made with the LPA share price less than it was on April 1st 2014 , over 4 years ago when it was 124p hTTps://markets.ft.com/data/equities/tearsheet/charts?s=LPA:LSE

Yes that's an interesting point. Is the option award timetable fixed in stone -you could argue that it makes some sense to smash the share price ahead of any new award-though clearly the directors will also hold normal ordinary shares. I don't read much into the FD purchase -he could have have told to buy some by the Chairman/ceo -any being a new boy he wouldn't want to go against their wishes.

buywell not sure what you mean? Bit naughty I think setting options at a price they just smashed by 50% with a poor outlook statement This could be back up there very soon. They are going into the market to buy the shares Tiger

I agree wholeheartedly, CT. The clincher for me was seeing the (relatively) new CFO [joined October '17] buying 5k of shares on 27th June. Would any sane investor, never mind a director with his 'finger-on-the-pulse' of that company, spend £5k knowing there is a doubt about the company's long-term prospects or even existence?

Ok ALS We have no idea how current order book is doing but we do know it declined because they told us so. So I guess the theory is that sales will have to decline and because of the fixed cost structure that will impact heavily on profit. That's what we know. However However, as previously reported, the medium term maybe more challenging. Order entry in Electro-Mechanical and to a lesser extent in LED Lighting has not kept pace with sales and the Group order book has declined. Successive changes in Government procurement policy have impacted domestic supply chains for both new and refurbished trains and there is increased competition in our Asian markets. Nevertheless, we are rising to this challenge and have been selected for GBP1.8m of new LED Lighting and power socket export contracts for trains being imported to the UK, for delivery commencing in the next financial year. So there may well be new companies out there we can win business from. read this part As previously reported the levels of sales and profits in the current year are exceptional and may be under pressure next year, but the funnel of opportunities, which leads to the pipeline of orders and order entry, is very encouraging. The Group is in robust shape and we look forward to the future with great confidence. The company is valued at 13m but has net assets of 11m. We have spent a great deal on automation etc in the last two years and this should help going forward. I think the lack of selling by the directors who own a fair chunk shows their confidence. Hence at the 1.00/110p and trading on a current year p/e of 7 I rate the shares cheap Tiger Tiger

But why's it cheap? Ok so it looks good for 13p eps this year but look at the outlook statement and order book which has dropped off a cliff. "However, as previously indicated, the medium term maybe more challenging. Order entry in Electro-Mechanical, and to a lesser extent in LED Lighting, has not kept pace with sales and while Distribution is doing well, the Group order book has declined. Government procurement policy has changed impacting domestic supply chains for both new and refurbished trains. The "long term through life" cost approach used on Cross Rail and London Overground, which favoured our reliable, long lived sustainable products has changed to one requiring only support for the franchise period, typically seven years. In addition, the procurement of 7000 new trains, significantly more than the running annual average of around 700 trains, has exceeded domestic capacity to supply, necessitating import from overseas train builders who are not yet existing customers, presenting us with the challenge of displacing existing suppliers to achieve orders." This is a disaster in the making, I can't understand why anyone would think this is a value investment at this price.

I somehow missed this RNS on 27th June notifying two directors buying including the new CFO's 5k @ 107p (even tho' he's new to the company, he should be in a position by now to know what's happening): https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/lpa-group-LPA/share-news/LPA-Group-PLC-Director-PDMR-Shareholding/77751093

Another point worthy of consideration, if the directors were that concerned with the forward sales dip, would they have been foolhardy enough to increase the Interim dividend (albeit by a minuscule 0.05p)? Yield is therefore a tasty c. 2.7%.

If these daily 10k buys continue, the Market Manipulators won't be able to hold the share price back for much longer. But you have to hand it to them, knowing that most investors only seem to notice the negativity in any company statement before rushing for the exit, they lowered the share price at the outset (after the trading update) and, like a rolling snowball, the panic grew and grew and the selling was exacerbated causing the ridiculous mark-down. OK there's been a slight sales glitch but LPA (imho) remains a sound long-term investment.

A trade for 10k goes through at 98p, the share price responds by going up 1.5p and ADVFN record it as a sale ..... amusing!

I think peersonally that it's the wrong time to be buying. They look cheapish based on this years likely earnings but the order book has fallen off a cliff and the company has warned for the medium term. Not for me at the moment, maybe in a year or two if they get a fair bit cheaper.

Nope, nothing materialised. For better or worse have added 4.5k anyway.

With so little trade marks recorded thus far, this seemingly disproportionate share price mark-down makes me think there must be a large sell order being worked. I've got a few bob ready!
