What an irony if an insider dealing enquiry resulted in offences greater than the drugs charge !

An interesting idea in IC (Bearbull column): ... there is also something comical about the finance director of a quoted company being up on a soft-drugs offence. And one wonders to what extent the rumour of Mr Bakhshi’s misfortunes were behind the mysterious 16 per cent drop in the company’s share price in the six weeks to end-July even though Manx put out an acceptable trading statement during that spell. The Isle of Man’s dominant telecoms supplier – both fixed-line and mobile – traded in line with budget and management said nothing that would threaten maintenance of its 10.9p dividend, which generated a 6.3 per cent yield when the price was at its lowest. And, once the news emerged, the shares bounced; their price has recovered 12 per cent and is now back to 193p. So rumours were circulating and it turned out to be "only" hash.

Maybe he thought that he had to commit a criminal offence to fit in?

Given some of the investor related criminal actions that directors of Aim co's seem to be responsible for but not held accountable for........getting suspended for possession of a bit of weed feels like getting suspended for getting a parking ticket.

In this market, a share price rise of over 2% is quite a feat. EI - did you look, or miss a beat?

As I was saying, "it tends to be the 'unknown unknowns' which catch me out"! Hopefully this one will not do any significant lasting damage.

His name sounds a bit like something you'd smoke. "Fancy a Bakshi?"

The Isle of Man court of justice confirmed to The Telegraph that Mr Bakhshi, 50, has been charged with an offence related to bringing cannabis on to the island from Amsterdam.

Hmmmmm. Not ideal but shouldn't affect the company directly. I hope!

They say unrelated to MANX, which I'd accept. And there's a sub CFO to slip into place, so I'm unconcerned. At least for now! EDIT: from what I can see, there was a mark-down but no selling on the RNS.

I wonder what the criminal investigation relates to - re: intraday RNS - ?

Cheers jonwig, thanks for that. Here's hoping for solid, unremarkable(unless in a good way!!) results.

Yesterday's rise down to an article in yesterday's IC by favourite tipster ST? Conclusion: Offering a prospective dividend yield of 6.4 per cent, and rated on a reasonable nine times cash profit to enterprise value, I feel Manx Telecom’s shares are worth buying at 180p ahead of next month’s results. The date is 12 September.

I bought a small holding in these three years ago (shortly after the float) at £1.63 to put in my ISA, purely for the annual income of around 6% at that price. Still holding despite recent share price fall as my original thinking for buying still holds. Cannot see any reason for selling on fundamentals, particularly after Friday's little uptick in price - but then as a private investor it tends to be the 'unknown unknowns' which catch me out!

Jonwig - hopefully we will see some uplift in price in the wake of the recent broker note but in the meantime the 6.3% yield, on your buying price this morning, sustains my current holding here.

The latest broker update was from Liberum (12 July) - target price 236p. Suggests new investments will improve free cashflow (I'm not sure just what these will involve) giving opportunity to further increase dividend at above 5% pa or pay down debt. Recent option grants are based on some pretty stringent TSR and FCF targets, but generous if they are beaten ... would be good for shareholders, too. They've just cut their data and roaming charges. I don't know anything about the background to this, or investor implications.: Http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=35146&headline=Manx%20Telecom%20cuts%20data%20roaming%20charges&sectionIs=news&searchyear=2017 My buying price just now was 173p, even though quoted offer was 177p. EDIT: buyers are paying 174 now. These are shown wrongly as 'sells' so it looks as though a lot more buying will be needed to shift the stated offer price? Maybe.

jonwig - Last update on MANX by ST in his IC column was indeed on 27/3/17 with a BUY recommendation.

ST was pretty positive in the IC (27 March) at 197p with a target of 225p. I don't think he's mentioned it since. I don't hold but will have a look when I've time.

Well I just bought a very small amount 173.5. Debt is on the high side, however stable(ish) revenues.

Morning Joined the band here this morning. Been watching it for a while. Bit concerned by the constant falling over the past few months of the share price and wonder if that may be indicative of of some background issue that only us retail mugs don't know of?Or maybe a sizable seller in the background? Who knows...... Against that, the very recent update seemed satisfactory with what seem only minor issues. They also made a very strong and broad comment that cash flow was strong and the dividend was safe and sound for the foreseeable at least: Underlying cash flow remains strong, continuing to support our dividend policy. So on current forecasts of 11.5p for the dividend at my buying price of 173, that gives a very chunky yield of of about 6.6%. With earnings estimates of 14.7p they currently trade on a PER of around 8.5x. Also worth noting that they MAY qualify for BPR for IHT(please satisfy yourself before taking this as gospel!!). All in all there seems to be a worrying share price trend V decent fundamentals at the moment. Decisions, decisions....but on balance the fundamentals won out in the end for me. Good fortune to all holders.

Financial services compromise a large amount of the IMO economy. Brexit uncertainty may be weighing imv. The debt level perhaps worth keeping in mind. Aleman, are you holding here?, TIA.
