I think if the directors bought at this level it would show some upward movement in the share price back to the 5-6p level. They have been buyers at over 4p fairly recently but maybe it is just the wrong time for personal reasons. I am considering buying more but there is a level where it is not always the best idea to hold too many shares incase you do need to get rid of some which looks like the case here. Fundamentally unless there is some hidden bad news this company looks set for £16M turnover, perhaps £1.25M profit. P/E of 5 at the current levels, perhaps even a maiden dividend and a 3% yield.

Totally agree with pj. The problem is lack of buyers. And PEL don't seem to be making any concerted attempt to increase visibility and excitement. It feels like we are being left with a good 2017 forecast and then an expectation of £20 million turn over by 2020. Just not enough meat on the bones to excite new investors at the moment . I feel they are being too cautious with selling themselves as a company to invest in. Plenty going on on the ground . In fact I believe they are tendering for around £50 million of work. Not of course saying they will get all of it but they are a quality outfit and win some.

I agree, volumes are very small. Board is very quiet, I think this company is well under any pi radar at 6m market cap. Patience is a virtue they say lol, no intention to sell any and I will buy more at some stage.

This will sound perverse but imo its not the 'selling' that's the issue. Its mainly low volume and is what I'd say is normal 'churn' The problem is a total lack of buyers, and there has been no bad or suspect news Maybe its going to revist and test the break out area of 2.8p ish like so many shares seem to do, before setting off again?

I fear we will be buying more in the 2 to 2.5 area before long PJ. I am simply rubbish at locking in a profit. I have been in substantial profit on so many shares only to sit and watch them dribble away. I should have sold a quantity at c6p but didn't.

Amazingly in the almost 6 months since the highs of 6p on 17th Feb, we have only had 10 'up' days. A 2017 p/e of x6.6 On checking Stockopedia sector averages it seems PEL is being currently valued on Price to Tangible Book, Price to free cash flow (my estimate) and Price to Sales where PEL matches the averages. Best to Focus on £20m by 2020 imo

And down again. Very disappointed and surprised by share price performance here in last 6 months. Small sales but share price firmly in downtrend despite company saying all is on track. Surprising and disappointing in equal measure.

As far as I am aware the 20 million target by 2020 is absolutely in play . At a market cap of 6.9 this current weakness is inexplicable. Great numbers last week and at least meet end of year figures forecast . They are tendering for huge amounts of work worth millions . If they get a proportion of it the future is massively bright . My shares tucked away in isas and sipps for growth

There is more than a bit of stock around but if we start to get buyers they should run out fairly quickly as PEL has become ridiculously illiquid . This will mean extra buying pressure will move the price quickly back up

Someone lobbed out 175k below the bid after close yesterday, so there's probably some stock around.

Whoever the sellers are, They are not (currently) giving any reasons for selling.

Baffling!! This fall is so odd. I really cannot understand it. There just aren't enough followers of Paragon and the share price is withering on the vine. Given how well the company is doing we really need some confident communications from directors now about the direction of travel. The 2020 target of £20 million turnover is, from everything I have heard, going to be beaten. The company needs the market to buy into this. As an investment we are not seeing enough of the excitement that both PJ and I observed on the ground at the AGM.

I tend you use Stockopedia for research etc and I note they have yet to show any forecasts at all for 2018. I have also checked AJB, HSBC etc etc and they have the same including 2017 estimated eps. Out of interest does anyone use any other Broker or other source such as sharescope for example, that shows any other or longer forecasts? TIA PJ

PJ1. Thanks for taking the time to chat to the company. I think that was caused the sell off was the lack of visibility or enthusiasm in the results for the next few months going forward. The year end is only 4 months away, so they have 2 months completed and given the nature of the business they must have a very good idea of where it is heading. But chose to be very circumspect which can be taken for uncertainty. With more repetitive and maintenance type work in the future this should be a steady riser. Not a tech style rise, but a solid play. I hope so anyway !!BTW, I think that nearly all private investor stakes of less than 3% will be in the nominees listed as over 3%. I know mine is. So free float is probably between 20-25%.

PG - yes I understand there are not many in the free float. I have over 1% now as well.

stiffybristol 1 Sep '17 - 17:51 - 2072 of 2073    1   0 ================================================================================= The only 'tipsheet' i've seen mention PEL was sharesmag, who I believe were touting for Business. I'm also unsure if the Company would want to attract the certain calibre of 'trader' which their Vox Markets Podcast attracted.(P&D) Also, whilst Director buys are always welcome, it needs to be noted that since late 2015 the Directors have purchased >21m shares, 11% of the Co, in the open market. Collectively they now own 27%. Holdings >3% account for 71% of the Company and I guess that from investors I communicate with there is another 12% accounted for. Therefore, dare I say, a ''freefloat'' of 15% of shares in issue. And there lies the problem that any seller, or buyer, disproportionately affects the share price as the MM's struggle to match sellers and buyers. Unfortunately for whatever reason buyers dried up leaving sellers to knock the share price. That's my thinking anyway, feel free to pull it to bits. edit-although an allowance for nominee accounts is needed which will increase the ''freefloat'' as I've called it

Great feedback and thanks for making the effort and posting. if they had included the 20 20 in the RNS then could it have prevented any nerves? agree as you say market is still overlooking this.

Managed to buy today but had to it over several lots which is a real pain. Some Director buying at this level would give some confidence though I expect some of the tipsheets will not miss the HY results and see plenty of upside in this superb company. I expect them to get back to the 6p territory shortly and they are still cheap at that. The seller yesterday was probably just one person and they might have just had a stop loss that triggered the selling.

Hopefully some reassurance. I have spoken to the Company today and can confirm the £20/20 target is still the goal and, imo, following HY still very much on Target. So what contributed to the (continued) selling on the HY Results day is anyone's guess. On a very low 2017 p/e of x7, and EV/EBITDA of just over x5, this is looking almost exceptional value. Even in the tough days of 2015 PEL was trading at x7 EV/EBITDA.

I tried all day to buy but could only manage to pick up 25,000 early in the day at 3.6p. Most times you could sell 100,000 but not buy any, which would suggest that an order was being filled.
