|ok thank you ab. not the last man standing then ;)
|There was also a buy recommendation in last week's IC (which was published electronically on Thursday evening).
There's also been a bit of leap in bond yields today, which might also be a factor in today's increase as it'll benefit the pension fund.|
|cheers shauney2 !
|Weekend FT Small Cap Focus was on Construction this week with a mention of
NXR EPWN & FORT.
All 3 are up.|
|just me left then ;) thinking of changing my handle to "thread killer" ...
|marked up this am, tipped at the w/e perhaps ?
|well after that bump from the trading update its all gone a bit quiet ..... i was hoping that we`d be knocking on the £2 door now. maybe not until the next news is forthcoming.
|edmundshaw- I'll take the little dig straight on the Chin....... for now!|
|Good to hear PJ. The ability to adapt to new information is, as an investor trait, third only in importance to sound analysis and patience, in my view.|
|edmundshaw- always prepared to review my summary. The goal is to make money at the end of the day. :-0|
|One of the reasons for the low rating of the shares is the Boards refusal to give adequate information to shareholders by not splitting out the numbers of the tiles and the bathrooms businesses.
The Board may also have wasted many millions of shareholders money on the tiles business?|
|Could be one where patience is rewarded. Good divi too|
|great to see the update, there SHOULD be a lot more to come on the share price if the markets eyes are open !
|Before today,s trading update the PE & Yield was virtually the same at 5.5. One day Mr market will wake up to NXR IMO.|
|Bought 1000 at open, like the update and share price much too low.|
|Super update. Maybe slightly leaky given the recent rises, but only slightly.
Also looking forward to a good share price reaction. We are on an absurd PER of around 5, and now this update! PJ1, swallow your pride and get in quick!! :-)
[ FY underlying diluted EPS was 27.8p ]|
|sorry - there is a mention of pensions. " ... a well managed pension situation ... "|
|Agreed yamaha. H2 was good everywhere it seems - witness the constant currency LFLs: +8.3%, +7.0% and +7.9% for UK, Sth Africa and the group, respectively. Flying.
No mention of margins, but the more recent acquisitions all seem to have done well, and when LFL revs are doing so well, it is hard to believe margins too won't be good.
Excellent payback on the restructuring expense - 12 months cash payback! I wonder if there are more such opportunities?
And a reduction in debt - they said it was 27.5 at the interims so a further 3.5m reduction achieved in H2 after a 5m reduction in H1. Very good progress.
You asked if anything was missing. I note there was no mention of margins (but hard to read anything sinister in that, as discussed above) or the pension deficit (but with interest rates seemingly on the increase, that too seems unlikely to be sinister).
A happy holder. GLA|
|Bought back in last week. My timing looks right for once.|
|Very good trading update, big turnaround in H2 UK revenues. Maybe missing something but seems a screaming buy at these levels|
|With the benefit of hindsight this obviously hasn't been a stock to hold for the last 2 years. The problem there being compounded by the fact we are in a Bull market during that time, so not only have you lost on the investment but you have also missed out elsewhere as the Bull runs.
The Bull run cannot go on forever, and unfortunately, this is not a defensive stock to hold during a Bear market.
So, despite it being on my watchlist I currently see no investment potential.
Always the chance of a takeover, but good luck chaps.|
|But likely trading statement on Thursday.|
|Next results date is in June... sometime...|
