I have to say i'm saddened by what has happened here, when i first looked at these it seemed everything was falling into place for this company to be very successful indeed, foreign investment in Ethiopian factory was to create efficiencies and a ready supply of skins, R and D concentrating on high tech and performance at Yeovil was reaping rewards. They even seemed shareholder friendly with the share consolidation to allow a return to the dividend list. Even another bid was a possibilty!! Simon Thompsons tip luckily gave these the boost to my target of £2 when i fortunately decided to sell. Currency issues seem to have put a hold on dividends and P.G. selling on the same day as the capital reorganisation on hindsight was a warning sign. I can't put my finger on it but something is wrong at management level whether it's a difference of opinion or what we may never know. This business still has the potential to be a success story but not in the short term it seems. Watching from the sidelines. GLA holders.

Pittards trading cannot be materially different from that set out in the AGM statement which was not long ago -otherwise they would have to update the market.I took that to be mildly positive -certainly if you strip out the negative impact of currency. I am prepared to give the Chairman the benefit of the doubt as he has set out a specific use for the funds from his sale which presumably in part determined his timeframe. Besides the Mulberry man bt at 167p I think, and he should know what is value here. On the other hand this company does have a habit of shooting itself in the foot -seems incapable of pushing out a consistent message. The broker must step up to the plate -get out a note with some numbers on which the co is happy with -this will show the shares to be lowly rated . Trouble is they may remain so since most people seem to hold a view that if they get it right for 6/9 months they will then revert to foot shooting mode. WHI need to establish what exactly PG wants to do with his shares.If he wants out they must find buyers for the shares maybe via a road show to some likely institutions. With a divi in the offing this should help.

Should holders (not me I am glad to say) press Mr Boyd as to why he seemingly rejected a take-over approach at almost twice the level he has just personally sold at ?

Looks like someone else non connected but with inside info also joined him by dumping 165,000 shares at the same time. I dont hold but follow but glad I dont hold at the moment. I smell a rat and wont be buying in just yet, something not quite right here although I am not quite sure what it is yet, what with PG also clearly wanting out but unable to find a buyer and all it really just look like trouble ahead.

"interesting" news today - Chairman Boyd dumping 200.000 shares at a steep discount to market price. surely he must be told to leave the BOD now ?

I don't think the share price decline reflects anything on trading -more a view that there is a big seller who will offload into any rally. Takeover hope fading. But the shares are cheap so i think there is a chance of heading back to 200p before the year end.

agreed, their PR is rubbish. the CEO bought at the equivalent of 1.67 in Jan. lets see if he tops up.

The new director should be pretty astute given his background. I don't think Pittards always help themselves with their PR which is often woolly and ambiguous.

i would tend to agree, although the statement wasn't overly helpful in not telling you how far below last years H1! at the end of the day, a 20% discount to NAV and assuming it is still profitable, the NAV goes up, so i don't think there is much downside here. and the new director seems to agree. i bought some more.

Yes but aside from currency it reads quite well and as they point out their manufacturing initiatives will over time reduce the impact of stronger sterling or should I say weaker Dollar. Suspect this share will go quiet but still see attractions longer term.

Must have been tipped somewhere - sudden mass of buys and a pleasant jump in price?

Since it started to rise it seems that on each dip it only reaches a higher peak on its assent.

we are probably in a range for a while. the two shareholders accounting for 35% of the shares are selling into strength, and the $ weakness does not help numbers. but it is still a cheap share and doing well at the operating level.

battlebus Surely the elephant in the room is the resumption of proper dividends.

well nothing has changed -a very cheap share. Feel the mark down reflects likelihood of PG selling down and maybe fading hopes of a renewed bid.

Sold out a while back but as you say we are back to the level pre Simon Thompsons tip.

This is starting to really fall isn't it, every other day it's cheaper by the day. Would anyone care to has a guess why they think it's still far to dear?
