|Oh ffs! Having made 8% here, I just let my frog get boiled down to 3.9%. So that's half a year's dividend gone there! Do I stay or do I go?|
|runthejoules: I am happy with the name on this board, it reminds me of the good times!! It was in 2003 when I bought 15,000 at 112p for income, and sold at 237p in 2006.
IMO fair value would now be share price 350p giving a yield of 6.5% with 4 div. of 5.68p. In these uncertain times I am happy with such a yield from a company with a steady business and good balance sheet.|
|Sold my Cerillion & Alumasc to get in here - better yield, I'd let them drop. Clausentum, here's your first article: Shares magazine. Let's just hope the Daily Mail doesn't pick up on it. Kiss of death! GLA! hxxps://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/news/shares/personal-group-beats-market-expectations PS shouldn't someone change the name of this board?|
|The results were as I expected, IMO nothing to justify the previous low share price
What we now need is a tip from one of the popular Tipsters, if Questor in the Telegraph recommended PGH as a good value income share I am sure there would be a big sustained bounce in the share price|
|I am hoping that the results tomorrow will provide some reassurance about the long term value of PGH.
Many years ago I doubled my money in 3 years with a large investment in PGH, it would be nice to do it again!!
A dividend yield of around 8% has got to be good value, unless the company is in deep trouble.|
|SP 340/322. What a spread! The MMs aren't keen to take on any more stock.|
|Someone really has been selling a lot of shares, another 65,000 today. The overhang continues.|
|I held PGH many years ago, and have just looked at the numbers again. My impression is minimal growth in 2017 and a returned to steady growth from 2018. It won't be affected by Brexit or the value of the £, although a significant rise in interest rates would affect the attraction of the share for income. Anything below 400p seems good value, unless I am missing something. I was going to buy some shares but the MMs seem to have plenty of available shares and have cut the price again today. I assume there is an overhang of shares being sold, and the share price won't stabilise until that is cleared.
Can anyone point out any problems that account for the continuing drop in SP, or must it just be the balance of buyers and sellers?
It has never been an exciting share, but IMO it should be good value in the medium to long term at this SP, for those who like boring steady income.|
|Tempted to do a top-up here given today's announcement. It was already in the price, but we are down again. Lets Connect isn't the core business and could easily be ditched. Profit growth next year, but lower. Hardly a catastrophe.|
|THIs salary sacrifice company will be severely impacted by the autumn statement. A good deal of its revenue is derived from non-core salary sacrifices which are going by April|
|Yes, a really significant contract win this one!|

|I believe this share has just hit an all-time high...........recent share price progress has been steadily rising. It is a very well run company achieving record profits at each reporting date with an unbroken record of dividend increases. It also gives a good dividend yield - and pays out quarterly............perhaps others have also noticed this, hence the recent improvement in the share price. Who knows, maybe someone is accumulating?|
|Falling, but no news.|
|Good recent share price performance and decent yield this year.
This must be about the quietest board on ADVFN!|
|Tend to agree Topvest. One of the few companies in this sector who can do a bad job and still make money.|
|Still a solid business this one though. Good results.|
|Sector has become very competitive so new client group acquisition is getting tougher. Also, HR/Reward as a function is getting smarter so opportunities for their type of worksite activity are getting fewer. Need to align their strategy closer to what is going on in the market IMHO.|
|I suppose the write down of value of the IFA side signals lower profits for the forseeable future since the goodwill impairment test would have been done by looking at the discounted value of future cash flows. On the traditional employee benefit side, on the one hand they are having to work hard just to stand still year on year in terms of new accounts and the outlook for numbers employed by those accounts is negative in the next twelve months, while on the other they have a very conservative balance sheet which should see cash released over time and a visable income stream. Overall not very exciting. Nice yield. Sold mine in Jan 08 for £3. Should have bought back at £2 or £2.50 but lacked faith in the market generally rather than PGH specifically. Don't see much reason to buy now.|
|Results out today. They look reasonable, though the market seems disappointed. Views?|
|Another good rise today, in a falling market.
We could use a new thread title, though. Those days are long past!|
|Hold recommendation from Growth Company Investor
|A bit of a negative reaction to the results today. Maybe spooked by the higher level of claims paid out?|
