Unclear update doesn't help, but operating profit should similar to last year so trading remains pretty strong, will have to wait to see if div increased or special is paid. Nice opportunity sub 70p though, very cheap, suspect we will climb back up over the next few weeks. And expect further acquisitions in time which should add to the story. Personally, still hoping for 100p, but perhaps I'm a dreamer. Also wonder is there anyone who might bid for ntbr. They must be attractive to someone themselves.

I am trying to work out the consistency here with regard to how they are not now expected to not be ahead of the previous year but give i up. Perhaps last years "outstanding" trumps this years simply exceptional(h1) - perhaps the lack of a decent superlative being applied for the last couple of months means we should expect that they will have a poor last couple of months. all i can guess being less silly is that when they say management expectations they are talking about what their expectation were at the start of the year - so although we are only inline now after being ahead this is still a slightly better result than they predicted at the start of the year - that's reasonably consistent with the previous year being an "outstanding year" All slightly disappointing as i was hoping this company was heading for decent growth this year and hopefully beyond. I can't really see that the company is going to change its style anytime soon so more tea leaf reading probably needed to work out where they expect earnings to be trending next year (or this "broadly")

last year there was a special dividend, presumably because they thought that the outstanding results last year were a bit of a fluke and winter weather could have been a problem in subsequent years. If the results this year come out as similar to last year that should be taken as a positive sign. Eliminating debt and having cash on the balance sheet would give a war chest for any excellent acquisition opportunities that might emerge in the future. It looks like we should have the same dividend and special dividend as last year or perhaps a slight uplift.

And this year they have the first full year contribution from Peel. In the acquisition RNS it said Peel made c£0.5m of profit prior to acquisition. Strip that out and is the rest of the business below last year ?

simso, I have assumed that the special dividend of 1p will not be repeated but, if there is a special dividend, at any level, so much the better.

Impvesa, I presume they will announce a similar dividend to LY of 4p,given similar results, so the yield would be around 5.5% if that is the case...and depending how the share price reacts to this news!

"Based on management information for the ten months to January 2019, the Group has traded ahead of management expectations and in line with the outstanding prior year results." Even though we are nearly halfway through March they only appear to have management information to the end of January. Perhaps their accounting function isn't very sophisticated?! Historic dividend yield of nearly 4% and I will continue to hold in the expectation/hope of future growth.

Last year they did 1.37m at the interims, followed by £1.4m in 2H to make £2.8m. This year they did £1.7m at the interims, and they say the full year will be the same as last year, £2.8m. This implies 2H will fall to just £1.1m ? Isn’t that what is says ?

Yes, it does seem like they were expecting to be behind last year for H2, even though last year they lost a couple of weeks in March to the snow.

Odd RNS. At interims, operating profit was up 20%, and they say the first ten months were ahead of expectations. Yet, full year operating profit will only be the same as last year. Does that mean Feb and March are way behind expectations ? It is so unclear

We don't need to conjecture now, Trading Update is out. Ahead of Management Expectations, but in line with prior year. I am surprised they were "expecting" to be below last year.

How's the weather in NTBR territory? I had a giggle looking at the BBC weather pages. It appears that the Met Office have issued a 'Yellow snow warning' for Scotland. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-south-scotland-47515173

Well, there is Bilby (BILB): Building services check Quoted check Decent dividend check The only problem is that it is down 46% today on a warning about contract problems so I think I would stick with NTBR!

Also actively on the lookout now for earnings enhancing acquisitions, a change from a few years ago and scope to give the business a boost.

The weather has been quite mild this year and so there will have not been many lost working days for the roofing business. If the weather continues as it is for the rest of the month, which does look likely, I think NTBR will have had a bumper year

No Feb trading update like last year, but no news is generally good news here. Overdue a move through 100p but been thinking that for a while. Maybe this is the year.
