|I sold out of these some time ago for a tiny profit, nearer breakeven really.
There seems to be no point buying these shares whilst the family are happy to keep running down shareholder value on a failing business.
I thought when they recruited a Director with a property background they were maybe coming to their senses but it doesn't now seem so.
I'll keep watching for a change in stategy but I'm not tempted to buy back in even with the large discount to some quality assets.
|That really is strange. Everyone that wants to sell must already have done so and only left with the hard core holders!|
|At the time of writing the quote on this stock has gone up! What!!|
|Another bloody awful set of results with the chairman asking for patience!!|
|Buying here is like paying for insiders lifestyle!...|
Yes I just got tired of waiting for them to realise the value rather than watch it disappear on a failing business. They make losses every year yet never want to give up.
|Im sorry to see Arthur Lame sell out of these.
I have been involved here for about 13 years (and the shares were I thought cheap when I bought them) - I am down about 50%. There probably is an average down argument but they have been so dull I dont think I could bring myself to.
There has been no update on the property valuations|
|Its a large holding ego thingy...|
|I also sold out of here as they show no signs of returning the assets to shareholders and are happy to continually make losses on a failing business.
I thought the appointment of a director with significant property experience might herald a change of direction but I was wrong.
|Hi Glen, I also reviewed the results here and saw no reason to regret having exited this investment. Breakeven still seems very far away, let alone an acceptable return on capital employed. It is a shame that so much value could sit idle for so long but there is nothing that can be done about it.|
|The same old story - only worse this year. Maybe they'll breakeven in a couple of years. Maybe.
Glad I'm out of this one as David Phillips shows no sign of stopping the throwing of good money after bad.
I wish those of you still hopeful that the directors will return the £20m+ (68p) of shareholders' funds the best of luck. I, together with some others, tried to persuade them - and failed.
|Anyone know anything about John and Sarah Rockliff who declared a combined holding of 1,000,000 shares in March?|
|Nothing going on here, I attended a few AGMs. Management in denial about the economics of the industry. They just enjoy owning a company. The son is working there now so it might continue indefinitely, assuming they can eventually get back to break even.
Tempting to think you could get a return of capital or a special divi some day but chances are slim that it will be any time soon. Dividend cut this year was a bad omen.|
|Only holding a small amount for sentimental value as I started the thread. I sold up months ago. Keeping a watchful eye though.|
|ah battlebus Are you here too? I bought a few shares today but there does not seem to be any stock around hence the rise.|
|Seems to have bounced of the bottom??|
|After 22 March|
|After 21 March|
|Yes - they have been getting progressively later

2014 - 7 March
2015 - after 20 March (edited not foretold!)|
|Interims quite late this year|
|Interesting that their new non exec has a background in property. Could this mean that they are finally going to try and realise some of the value in the balance sheet?|

|Profdoc - very much hope so but won't believe it until I see it|
|This year is the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice in Wonderland. For some reason the AGM made me think of the Mad Hatters Tea Party. Wonder why?|
|Perhaps they'll take the company private?|
