|I think some consideration should be given to increasing the yield. The company is hardly a growth stock any more after a period of dismal performance not helped by a tendency to overpay for acquisitions.|
|New 1 yr high , I see the brokers are fairly positive and although the yield is derisory , the forecast 2018 EPS is a reasonable 56p.

|Quite so. While there's life, there's hope.|
|Only another £10 to go to reach the 2014 highs.|
|Doesn't stay up for very long though, does it? Seems to meet resistance at a certain level and as you say a very long way off previous high.|
|We are still less than half the price of 3 yrs ago but I do like the continuing upwards share price creep ; 1 yr high.|
|Well, I hope it won't be bought at anything like this price.|
|A nice rise last few weeks and a quiet board. Good combo|
|Ah , a bid rumour , keep it up guys, spread the word.|
|Exactly my reason why I went long a few weeks back.|
|Wouldn't be surprised to see this bought by a Dollar earner like e2v was yesterday. Looks like we are going to lose a good few British tech stocks.|
|Yes , but I didn't!|
|Time to add ?|
|That does not apply to the non execs, it's Chairman and non exec dealings
I tend to focus on.
ATM it's a case of silence is golden golden golden on that front, but the share price looks far from precious.|
|If you are a director of a company , you already have your income directly dependent on the company's fortunes , you have share options as well , so why risk your savings too. If I was a director I would put my cash elsewhere , even if I believed that the company was seriously undervalued. Eggs in baskets. Thus the directors share trading has always seemed a bit dubious as a guide to me...
But as you allude , there have been no significant director buys this calendar year. But no sales either!|
|Any directors buying these levels?.|
|The dividend should not have been maintained imv,
debt reduction should be the first, second and third priority here.|
|Blown loads of money on over priced acquisitions......|
|Net debt looks ugly IMV.|
|I see Numis has reduced its target price from 880p to 815p. I expect the new chairman to invigorate the company but it may take some time before the effects are clear.
|I missed that . Agree the price fall seems unrelated. Good trading share for the brave!
Looking ahead, we expect the second half to benefit from a normal seasonal bias, assisted by favourable currency benefits and the delivery of further business efficiency improvements. Taking into account our current pipeline and improved order book, the Board continues to expect that we will make progress in the year and we remain well positioned to take advantage from future growth in our markets|
|Steady enough AGM statement-not sure there is anything there to warrant a price fall.|
|Diddly squat ; suggest filter the ramper .|
|What's that got to do with OXIG?|
|REDS, remarkable recovery story not yet well known. Trading update 5th September.
REDS provides software applications for smart buildings and counts pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline and real estate player Meyer Bergman among its customers.
Constant flow of new contracts with large multinationals.
They got recently a 12 million contract with UBS which represented 50% of REDS' market capital! UBS have 700 more branches needing possibly the same service.
New CEO Mark Braund very positive and invested his own money along with the financial director. Mark is a specialist in turning around struggling companies. He has already done it with REDS in less than a year.
