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.

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.

Given that they are still actively seeking out acquisitions I would expect that they would see retaining cash rather than bumping up the dividend as more of a priority so I wouldn't think that the dividend would be more than 3.5p

5p I think is rather optimistic. They don't strike me as a company that are willing to give it away (good in a way!). Unfortunately I didn't bother to leg it up to Toon for the AGM to get a better idea of the management. Still it would be a pleasant surprise!

Agree a cracking set of results. I would be surprised if the final dividend is as much as 5p though. Last year was 3p and it has increased by 0.5p in each of the last 3 years so my expectation is for 3.5p which would give a very healthy 4.4% yield on the current share price Tiddlers like this don't seem to re-rate very quickly but I hope today's excellent interims will give us at least a small nudge in the right direction.

Yes another set of very strong results with a good outlook subject to weather. Trading on a P/E of 11 based on just 6 months profit. Crazy. Confirmation that company has a progressive dividend policy and so possibly 5p this year for yield of over 6%, covered over two times.

It has been as high as 90p so I am not getting too excited by a spike.

Yes, interim's should be out next week, although they said in the trading update operating profit was ahead of last year, some of that is due to the inclusion of H Peel for the full 6 months but nonetheless still a good outcome as the comparison was against a strong H1 last year. If the weather holds up, they should easily beat H2 and so be ahead of last years adjusted EPS of 12.5p, so the shares look great value on a forward p/e of under 6.

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.

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
