Poor results this morning mostly due to the strong pound and warmer weather meaning less demand for gloves etc. The value of sterling has improved so maybe a better year ahead..

Difficult to see how management with this record can stay in office -must be a very cosy arrangement with non-execs, and institutions too supine to demand change.Chairman seems distracted by other things.....

£50 would indeed be a fair recovery target on the original share capital had PTD not issued bucket loads of confetti (ie. zillions of new shares @ 1p) to the main shareholder some years back.

B a few Tuesday via self trade and trades not shown and no impact on price. Do we have a seller.

£50?! that would be nice. The pound is much weaker than it was. What now can go wrong or be used as an excuse. Maybe too much sunspot activity or poor planetary alignment.Maybe inability to focus on the job after 15 pints of scrumpy.

It has been 10 years going down hill because of poor management but with the right people running this it could recover to those early highs and that would be about £50.00

Let's keep these positive thoughts going! This has been a total disaster for me so far.

The business has a long history and supplies many fine brands and to ensure their suppliers, I would not be surprised to see an offer for the company from one of those at much higher levels. Maybe good timing battlebus2 in view of the small directors purchases a short time ago.

Did Simon Thompson give these a mention today hence the rise or is something else afoot either way i'm back in for a few...

Much nearer to £1 and will be tempted. As far as I can see(not far I admit with ptd) the main problem is currency and not the business. Do I think at some point $ strength will increase vs £

looks like my share prediction is coming good. 50p here we come. Management will be unconcerned though -another hour to go on the cider. So if currency is an issue what was Ethiopia supposed to do?? Godfrey(aged 78) must step forward with his magic dust bag-maybe made of leather. Trading below NAV I read.

So far, worst investment I've made in years on ST's tip in IC.

Hardly much skin in the game is it -165,00 shares. The way the share price is going they will be worth 50k before the year end. An air of torpor and lethargy hangs over this company. There are simply no buyers and the broker is useless. What do the management do all day??

Anything to lift sales would be fine -leather underwear included. Maybe the ceo should start a fashion for wearing lederhosen whilst he is playing darts at the pub.His brother Ted is though a much better player.

Do they not wear gloves in darts anymore then?

yes bit of light relief. The ceo is I'm sure related to that well known darts player Ted. Still there are real issues to resolve and this lot and WHI don't seem to have a clue.If there are no natural buyers for the stock then the MM's will mark it down to make sure that PG doesn't fling another tranche in their direction. We are back where we were.

wonder what the management and others are up to today ceo -playing darts in the pub fd -ordering more stock 'just in case' godfrey -what day of the week is it? gylenhammer-shall I job out this holding to a willing buyer at 110p. Chairman -doing deals in other companies head of sales-'why has the market for presentation gloves at court declined? These were our best selling line in 1957'

All I can say is that, if the Chairman needs to sell 200,000 shares at 1.2p for another venture, he must be pretty poor! This is an insignificant amount of money and the idea that he doesn't have £2,400 lying around is laughable. Moreover, selling at such a sharp discount seems nuts. There must be something else going on here. He may actually be looking to depress the share price artificially for whatever reason I do not know but can only guess at.

There does seem room for improvement doesn't there!! Starting with high levels of stock carry. Cutting this would boost working capital. I think absence of news between formal results also makes holders nervous. There is always the tantalising prospect of them getting it right -simply boosting the share price by reporting higher profits along with a confident outlook statement; and/or getting taken over. Let's hope that young Godfrey can sprinkle some magic dust here. I mean to say these ladies bags sell for hundreds if not thousands of £s and Ptds must be getting some piece of the action, as they are supposed to be top of the range in leather?
