|28-Mar-17 Buy Gary Lamb 194.50p 280,000 £544,600.01
|It's endemic, and also applies to the good, bad and ugly.
The sad fact is there are precious few CEO's who really create value,
and many who are highly efficient at value destruction.
Significant director (market) purchases are one of my favourite filters,
however it is more likely to be NED's or the Chairman as executive directors
are so often loaded with options.|
The simple answer is not enough. FCRM would have made investors money but I didn't like they way they rewarded themselves. There's another I'm watching as they have good tech but are milking it, will they grow sales to cover their excess ? I'll just watch for now.
I have no problem with options as long as they're a stretch not free money.|
|And how many LSE listed shares does
that leave exactly?.
HLMA which has probably the greatest 40 year record of any single UK listed stock
has a generous options package for executives.|
I had considered looking further into this one but your post said it all. I don't consider shares where the directors line their pockets.|
|CEO has sold £544k worth of shares which were awarded to him at nil cost...

|Jonwig - thanks for the link I will take a look. The other PDF's on the company investors section were the cut down notes as supplied for the RNS|
|fenners - you'll find the full reports and accounts here:
You'll also find that the balance sheet impact of the swaps is negligible.
In fact, if a swap agreement runs to maturity, there is no loss or gain at that point. The notional loss or gain at any point is a necessary part of derivatives accounting, and is only crystallised if the agreement is terminated early.
I don't know if you read the Telegraph article from December?
I don't hold this, mainly because I haven't got arount to doing any work on it. Maybe the Telegraph is right, but also if you feel uncomfortable investing, I'd leave it alone!|
|I'm not holding atm, 193.5 was my target price to buy back in.
In terms of the business it's a near monopoly in the IOM market.
From memory MANX are the third largest employers on the Island,
the regulatory background appears supportive.
That is all I can add, doubt anyone will take umbrage btw, MANX
does not tend to attract that type of BB following.|
I try to write it as I see it, based upon published info not speculation. If I ask awkward questions that get good answers , great.
Some other threads take um bridge but this is my money so I have to do some due-diligence.|
|I'm impressed by that research, Fenners !
I wonder if there are any broker/analyst notes on this stock. If so, I would like to see how they address Fenner's points.|
|Trebled my small holding here on that dip, the restructuring is a positive imv,
market appears to see it differently atm.|
|I notice MANX are advertising for a Head of Customer Experience,
that position was only created about a year ago, wonder what happened
to the previous person.|
|Nearly 6 months without a post, my better half is from the IOM so
keep an eye on this.
Any thoughts on the recent China Global deal?.|
|Good to see this back at 200 so quickly|
|Agreed Gears. Could it be the OEIC which is suffering both from the general rash of redemptions and the departure of its prestigious manager ?|
|Could be a placing by a large holder.|
|Anyone any insight as to why this has suffered so much since the vote?|
|Maybe increased competition for services could slow growth.|
|Big trades at 190/194 reported after close - looks like someone sold a big chunk which was presumably behind recent weakness. Looks like price stabilised now and we can hopefully move back up now|
|Egg - guessing people selling after xd|
|Had a little spread bet today, seems to be a good entry point here. Hopefully see some support volume.|
|Any reason given for the recent drop in sp?|
