Personally I am happy that they concentrate on running the business rather than be distracted by bothering about over paid analysts. The company is too small for institutional investment. The eps for the current year is likely to be around what I paid for my shares and the dividend around a third of what I paid so, in my opinion, they should just keep doing what they are doing.

I think things are slowly changing. They do realise they need to communicate better. They are not going to do a MELLO yet, but slowly reaching out to investors. I suspect they have had meetings with research writers, but were not sure whether the cost was worth it. They have issued four RNS in the last year all cross referring to last year’s profit, so giving as good a steer on profits as any brokers note would. They have started the shareholder newsletter, which does not include anything price sensitive, but does add some flavour. I think they realise that NTBR has fallen into the “no news might be bad news” camp, so the share price rises on every RNS, then falls slowly until the next one. They need a general positive reputation, to dry up some of the selling, but also mean there are buyers when stock appears. I think they do “get it” and I hope we will see a little more consideration for shareholders going forward. I think they are as frustrated as anyone that the shares cannot break out of the 70p-80p range despite all the positive news flow

Very good post. Suppose they don't need to raise and bring in new institutions then they may be happy to keep a low profile. Also appears unlikely to be taken over.

the broker is Strand Hanson, hardly an household name and producing no research that I can see. It is trying to be a merchant bank, doing small issues and listings with a S African section. The AIM listing placement in December 2006 (2.5mn shares at 88p!!)was done by Dawnay Day, RIP 2008. Should the company ever need more capital I am 99% sure there would be a placement unavailable to individual shareholders.On the other hand I suppose the ongoing advisory fees are pretty minimal. To get research they would have to pay a tame operation like Equity Development where the work is useful but largely uncritical.My personal view, confirmed in the text of the listing document, is that the listing is primarily a method of giving some liquidity to the shareholders, who are mostly the MDs of a (5 or 6 strong?)group of small northern building service companies who might otherwise have difficulty in succession planning and generally realising value for their businesses. This is not a criticism, just an observation. In that light the company will want to minimise external costs (auditors, brokers. I have noticed this morning that there was a lot of 'insider' buying around 2011/2012 when the price was under 15p (having fallen from a 2007 peak of 170p), but there has been considerable insider selling in the past two years, especially by the ex-chairman Jon Pither who - having owned up to 17% in early 2012, is now down to 8%. Well done to him and hopefully he remains fit. These sales, in addition to option exercise and now (H Peel) share issuance, has pushed up shares in issue a bit. There were 18.5mn shares in issue in April from 17.9mn a year earlier.

Hopefully with strong trading and good results we will develop some momentum and get some overdue share price strength rather than weakness going forward. But it is small cap so you never know.

Exbroker, I think we're largely in agreement, I take a differing view and think because profits will be ahead this year, they will also pay a special dividend in addition to the final but it may depend on the outlook for the year ahead.

they must have a broker ..they could get them to write some research (with numbers/forecasts) and promote the company a bit more as it appears to be doing very well.

Daz I think you are overly optimistic about the dividend, the last 2 years they have paid a special of 1.5 and this year 1p. I expect this year no special but a final of 3.25 to 3.5p

Grumpy bunch as far as I can make out! Not sure about 100p yet but 90 seems a pretty much given in the short term.

All looks promising. Just a pity they don't give us some numbers to chew on.

As previously the fall from the mid 80's over the past month completely unjustified. Certainly agree this should be testing £1. Completely unloved / overlooked and the company itself needs to look at this

Still looking for a test of 100p.

There is no broker coverage for the company, so you won't see any forecasts. Last year, they did 12.5p in adjusted earnings per share, I would think they are on for something like 14p this year and a total dividend of 5p, putting the shares on a forward p/e of 5.5 and a yield of 6%, very solid value given the lack of downside after today's update

yep ... not a very liquid market I got stung on a sale once My more recent buy or sell strategy is to put an offer up - and see if it gets matched (or whatever the equivalent term is) the market makers must have a field day

Quoting 79 for as few as 500 shares, although the indicative price is 75.

Not an agm update but they have added a news feed to the website recently presumably in an effort to improve shareholder communications which is encouraging. The idea is to include some updates on operational progress that wouldn’t need to go out via RNS but would add a bit more colour to the business in between trading updates.
