Your guess is as good as mine. The company is only modestly geared, although i'd like to see them strengthen the balance sheet a bit more. As far as we know they are expecting another good year so 4p could be easily covered by earnings. Whether they choose to pay this sort of dividend or not remains to be seen.

Trading in the final 3 months (as always) is bound to be very weather dependent. So an accurate Trading Statement would be impossible. But so far so good, unless it is already bad 'oop north'! Still why worry, The 'cover' is good enough for them to maintain the divi, with maybe a slightly lower special divi if weather does turn bad. I can't see any real reason for them to be affected (effected? - I can never work that one out!) by any outcome of Brexit other than if the general market shifts as a result. Surely a good and solid long term bet with a handsome divi. Sell, sell, sell! (So I can buy some more!)

Thanks Arthur. Given what they said that was my thoughts but was not certain. What are your thoughts on the dividend 4p again or will it be less as it was part special and part ordinary?

I wouldn't have thought so. They only reported in November, when the outlook seemed good. Presumably they're not planning on updating the market for a while unless there is a significant change in performance.

Given the comments and various differing opinions I am not sure if asking the question do you think we will get a trading statement soon is wise but "Do you think there will be a trading statement so"

Thanks for all the above info. I now need to look at or rather for the balance sheet, looks asset light but that may be a good thing!

Are Strand Hanson any good? I did not realise how small this company is. I just looked to see how easy it is to buy or sell, now I am beginning to understand why it looks so cheap!

This thing looks cheap, what wrong with it? Who are the brokers? Is there any research or profit forecast out there? Cash flow and a yield?

I have no idea what Tinkers game is but as you can see below there is no vote on the sale. If they could not even find a way to get the loans in place, then the cash flow must be bad! This thing is bust be grateful that you are getting something back, its only because if it goes bust then all sorts of problems happen with the landing slot rights and ATOL etc, worth them paying £2.2m to avoid. Sell in the market and move on. Together with the announcement of the Recommended Offer, Flybe entered into a secured bridge loan facility (the "Bridge Facility Agreement") with the shareholders of Connect Airways (the "Consortium") pursuant to which the Consortium agreed to make available to Flybe a committed credit facility of up to GBP20 million, subject to a number of conditions. Despite significant efforts it has not been possible to satisfy these conditions and so Flybe has been unable to draw any funds under the Bridge Facility Agreement. Divestment of Flybe Limited (including Flybe Aviation Services Limited) and Flybe.com Limited and agreement on a Revised Bridge Facility In light of the above, the Board of Flybe and Connect Airways are pleased to announce that they have reached agreement on: -- the purchase by Connect Airways of the Group's main trading company, Flybe Limited (including Flybe Aviation Services Limited) and the digital company Flybe.com Limited for GBP2.8 million (the "Divestment"), subject only to a limited number of conditions; and -- a revised Bridge Facility of up to GBP20 million to provide funding to Flybe Limited, of which GBP10 million will be released today to support the business. In addition, a number of improved agreements with banks have also been reached today to improve liquidity. Furthermore, the Consortium has confirmed to Flybe that its plans for the future of the Flybe business including the combination with Stobart Air remain as set out in the Recommended Offer including its commitment to provide GBP80 million of further funding. Flybe confirms that following its transfer to a Standard Listing which becomes effective on 17 January 2019, the Divestment will not require shareholder approval. The long stop date for the Divestment is 22 February 2019. The Board of Flybe believes that obtaining this revised facility from the Consortium provides the security that the business needs to continue to trade successfully. This preserves the interests of its stakeholders, customers, employees, partners and pension members. Status of recommended offer by the Consortium for Flybe Shareholders should note that the Recommended Offer announced on 11 January 2019 will proceed irrespective of the Divestment. Further communications will be made as appropriate.

A lot of the big house builders are on a 'programme' of special divis - both now and going forward over the next two to three years; market conditions allowing. I see it as a very logical thing to do, since the construction/building industry can have a complete about turn "Just like that" - T. Cooper!

The management have significant stakes in the company and you can see from its approach to acquisitions, that it's conservatively run, almost like a family business (in the good sense). This might not mean sensational growth but it reduces the risk and as Simso highlights means they are less cyclical than you may think (though they did make a loss in 2007), which makes the shares a relatively safer hold - although still subject to weather events and a full blown recession. Being a small construction company and having a small free float, which makes the shares illiquid, definitely holds the rating back but hopefully the track record will eventually be recognised with a higher rating in time. Re the comments on the special dividend, I don't think anything untoward should be read into this. They just want to distribute profits to shareholders in a sustainable way. So in the good years you have extra special dividends, which might not be paid when times get harder Providing the weather holds up, I'm looking for a final dividend of 3.5p with another special of 1p (4.5p together), with an outside chance of a 1.5p special if things go very well and the outlook post Brexit holds up.

Guess it's a case of taking advantage while you can as can't see much downside from here. Could easily be tipped now as well.

I have not checked recently but they do not have much in the way of insti following so on days like todays it is just us retail punters topping up or selling. No great demand for the share and Pither could still be selling down on news.

Having achieved 6.9p in H1, and with Outlook for second half described as "Very Good", I hope for c 14p earnings this year. With an unleveraged Balance Sheet, the P/E is only c 5.5 times. Looking back over the history, going back to 2007, they have been profitable in every single year...a period which includes the worst Recession in our living memory. Cash generation is excellent, and over the last 5 years we have generated an average £1.8m pa of Free Cashflow (after deducting Capex), which is a FCF yield of c 13%. Profitability is improving rather than reducing over that period. Unreasonably cheap imho.

Yes I would have thought it was a three figure share price. Maybe its too off the radar?

Very positive results and outlook. Must be on for at least c.13p eps and a break of 100p come full year results. Thought we might be up more today.

Gary196612 Nov '18 - 08:16 - 1108 of 1108 0 0 0 "I think you are all forgetting that they pay a special as well as the regular dividend. 4p paid for last two years but split has changed to put more emphasis on the regular dividend." I confess I had overlooked that Gary. But I'm not sure if it is prudent to anticipate a special dividend every year, especially as "We continue to seek acquisitions of established specialist building services businesses, either in the same or complementary sectors to our current operations."

yes, but the point of calling it a special dividend is that it's not regular and can't be relied on. It's a bit smoke and mirrors for my taste tbh, but the impression it gives is that they do care about their reputation for rewarding shareholders.
