The spread here is frankly ridiculous. Poor performer for a while now.

Hmmm, around £6m to be allocated to SAYE and LTIP pots. Hope they can deliver similar benefits to the shareholders, maybe a special dividend of similar amount. That would approximate a special of around 16p per share.

Giving them the benefit of the doubt, current trading and the prelims due in a few weeks must be solid to make this announcement now.

Although it's interesting that NICL have chosen to buy shares from existing issued capital, rather than issue new shares for SAYE and LTIP obligations. Maybe the family does not want any dilution, can't remember the last time NICL issued any shares.

Either way, we should benefit from a steady buyer supporting the share price.

Spread is 5%...beta according to FT is low at 0.5
Clearly wrong as this moves up and down like a miner.
Not a very 'liquid' share and seems very little interest in it which is strange given free float % seems high.

That's some fall today on just 14,000 shares traded .

Worth keeping an eye on any delayed reporting from trading today, in the next couple of days, for a larger dump of shares.

Steady as she goes, 2021 preliminary in around five weeks. The market seems to acknowledge that results will beat consensus, which should help move the share price further forward.

Just tried a dummy buy and sell on NICL. Buy at 1315 and sell at 1277.25. So 37.85p spread. Which on a 1315p buying price represents about a 3% spread

Questor: Nichols is gently starting to regain a little fizz so we’ll hold on to recoup our losses

Questor share tip: our advice to buy the soft drinks company has lumbered readers with a 13pc loss so far but patience should pay off

Just musing the new dividend policy (2X), in the light of recent trading update and FY guidance (£21m - £22m) for 2021. Fist half PBT was ~£8.6, adjusted earnings of ~19p/share giving a dividend (2X) of 9.8p. FY 2021 PBT guidance is for £21m - £22m, so all things being equal (which they may not be :-) ) that would indicate a FY 2021 final dividend of ~ 50% higher than the interim. I get that at ~£15p.

If we calculate 2022 given guidance at £25m PBT, we should be looking at around an additional 10% over 2021, a total for 2022 of 27 - 28p.

This rate of dividend growth (albeit more conservative than previously), should help boost the share price. Also, notwithstanding potential expenditure on M & A, the cash on books should be ~ £60m end 2021, and possibly £80m end 2022. If no M & A activity then possibility for a special distribution to shareholders (with dividend or buy back). Either way things are perking up.

Topvest. I agree. Not sure that Barr's products could be exploited outside the UK through NICL's distribution network. I would prefer to see NICL push harder to develop its established markets, which would require marketing expenses and possibly new distributor arrangements for Africa.

Also, I would imagine that the US should have some potential to better target the ex-pat community. They currently deal via a Chicago based distributor who targets these sectors (Middle East, African and to a lessor extend the Brits). Maybe a concentrated push with this distributor would help develop sales further. I have seen Vimto in some specialist food stores in the US myself.

Of course, not forgetting the UK market. Increasing brand awareness should create more opportunities to develop the product here. Again requires marketing expenditure.

Having said that I would also like NICL to consider some form of capital restructure to increase liquidity. Maybe a share split coupled with a share buy back programme to use some of the excess cash on the balance sheet. That should help the share price.

Either way, I see NICL as a good long term investment. I feel that there is more chance of them being taken private via an agreed PE deal, than a takeover unless Suntory come knocking. I doubt that Bitvic deal would clear the monopolies commission due to Robinson's current market share. Off the top of my head Robinson's (Britvic) ~%40, NICL ~14% and Ribena %8 (Suntory) UK market share would create a behemoth in UK soft drinks.

I hold both. They are more valuable on their own I suspect. Always the chance of an offer from Coca-Cola, Pepsi or Britvic etc at some point, but would be happy to see them stay independent. They have both had a sideways move in share price for 5+ years but should resume shareholder value creation at some point soon. I guess Covid-19 and sugar tax etc. have been bid headwinds in this period. Both quality companies. Vimto has better growth potential in my view as international sales are so strong in the Middle East.

AG Barr currently trading on a slightly lower multiple. Holding both. Merger makes sense - let's see - both net cash position.

Even with markets at record highs telecoms sector particularly Vodafone not far off pandemic lows: gold plays CEY and PAF look good value: Victrex has the best balance sheet I have seen and must be a strong chance of M&A there. Directline worth a look too IMO.
