MRF - I agree with you 100% and after doing all the research I did I changed my view about PTD that I had previously held, some of the research I am now posting on this thread, so other small investors can see and make up their minds about taking advantage of the current low share price or maybe not. This is only my opinions, DYOR and others may take a different view and I welcome them to post them on this thread, as all are welcome. Still, good to see more buying this morning. I know this is not going to be a multi bagger but I reckon a safe and sound investment now. Have you held the stock for long MRF?

Originally the Ethiopian factories were supposed to be for leather process. It seems product production may be more significant than I thought. Perhaps this would explain Director confidence.

I came across this on You Tube for anyone that might be interested in getting an idea of how modern a premises Pittards work from in Ethiopia. As you can see this video was made around a year ago and clearly was COVID compliant then. Seems a nice modern place to work. Not that I can understand a word they are saying but it does give one an idea of the operation and what they are turning out. I expect all those spare machines are now back in full production. What a difference a year makes. Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-TlRL-nAnU&t=178s

Todays news of director awards, gives them even more incentive to see the share price at least doubling from here. That on top of their recent buys and slowly rising price,it looks like an attractive investment. If we see a little pull back again early next week like todays small drop, I will be in for another nibble. Not in public hands 8,899,374 64.00% Other shares 5,923,526 36.00%

!YOUTUBEVIDEO:UBGpIZqlHHQ: Pittards has had a terrible few years but COVID-19 seems to have shaken it into new life. 51 -54p They announced their Full Year results on 24 March 2021 for the year to 31.12.2020 - The accounts were not pretty but reported: "The resilience of the Group was evidenced by a return to positive EBITDA during the second half of 2020 and our cash flow improved significantly during that period. Our re-shaped business is more agile and set for growth and the creation of longer-term value." "There were no changes to the Board during the year. The Board is confident in the business strategy and committed to its future success, with each Board member increasing their investment in Pittards by buying shares during the year. The Board's collective holding rose to 6.4% at the end of 2020 (2019: 3.2%)." "Investing in the next generation of our team is an important part of our business. With this in mind, we have been approved for the UK Government's Kickstart scheme for 16-24 year olds. So far, we have recruited 13 kick start team members and we plan more." ยท "Reduced cost base by £2m, changed operating model " "As a result of COVID-19, our retail venues were forced to close and we decided not to renew our lease at Clarks Village, Somerset, and to focus more on digital channels which achieved increased sales this year." This last statement is a most important one I believe, as the company website is well worth taking a look at, it is likely to breath fresh air into the business with many ladies bags already sold out. The Directors have continue to buy shares this year. They have major customer brands buying their leathers, luxury retail is on the up again and they have new leather products that meet the fire standards required of many industries but importantly they have new fashion leathers that are being used by fashion shoe manufactures.

Well good luck with that, perhaps its now being noticed that its simply had not shared in the vaccination rebound by others with a short term view.

MRF - As I was fully invested, I decided to sell a small amount from another stock this morning that I held, that was not doing well but I think will recover in the long term, so I could just have a small nibble here to start, as I really see the potential, and will keep adding now, as funds are available. So Good Luck but I expect and hope that we get a few dips on the way up to enable me to build to a decent holding for a stock that is not that liquid.

It's very frustrating. There's so much value here that could quickly be unlocked. If I were a director I'd be wanting to get as much for myself if I could and in the case here, surely a management buyout would be the sensible solution. When the market won't value the business then I'd be taking advantage of that fact and buy it on the cheap then reap the rewards after.

Very odd to move up today on a 5k buy after such a large sell yesterday.

Same as CSSG, small companies basically being neglected, up to management to create shareholder value, most of them just complete wastrels intent on being paid a lot for little effort.

I don't understand why its not back to.pre pandemic levels. Is there a big seller then holding it down, that would explain it.

I have been doing a lot of research on PTD since yesterday and bearing in mind a number of factors, it seems to me that I might have been a little to negative about PTD's prospects. I have also been looking at the number of trades over the past three months, and more recently at the directors purchases along with the most recent statements about not extending the lease of their retail outlet, and changing to more online sales. I have looked at the company website and they seem to be sold out of a number of their ladies handbags, which I think is very positive, as they are not a well know brand or fashionable as far as I am aware anyway. Maybe I am wrong about that. The company seems to have changed and I think it is time for a new thread in line with the rising share price. As I am fully invested at present, I cannot buy into the story and it still maybe a little early anyway but I will soon start a new thread with a number of useful links that other investors may find of use. There is limited stock in free flow, so if there is a good RNS in the coming months it could soon run upwards quickly imo. However, if trading is not so good the downside is around 40p I guess. Overhang still being cleared it seems with a sale of over 100k today at 48.5p - so time yet to before starting to buy.

Another 20K to his already large 360K holding for that one. I don't buy that these are token buys, this is longer term accumulation!

Fear would be the war-torn state of Ethiopia, at the moment a vicious civil war in the north, one would hope it does not spread south, and the ominous prescence of fundamentalists throughout Africa, particularly the east coast.

MRF - many do so to provide a air of confidence and get small investors to stump up cash to keep them in the style they become accustomed too. Spend £10k on shares draw a fat salary and perks and pension and laugh all the way to the bank.

Its a sign of confidence. Lets face it why would you spend money on your own shares if you thought otherwise

Directors buying does not always suggest that it is wise to follow them, in fact there ability to provide small investors with returns is a better reflection of the companies health, and the best reason to invest or otherwise. In this case, they have repeatedly proven they are best suited at supporting jobs in Ethiopia. Maybe the directors would be best suited to running a charity, as investors money has supported them in better style than the 1000 they say the company supports in Ethiopia. Best they ship any stock still being warehoused there back to the Uk or another safe place.

HTTP://masterinvestor.co.uk/evil-diaries/evil-knievil-fitting-like-a-glove/?mc_cid=cc4e6556ab&mc_eid=f90ccf47da I was delighted by Mark Watson-Mitchell’s alighting upon Pittards (LON:PTD) last week. That company’s finance director visited my office, then just off Oxford Circus, forty years ago. Talk about history. If I have a reservation it is the investment in Ethiopia – providing employment to c. 1,000 individuals. This is a pessimistic view based upon the notion of trouble spreading from Tigray. Anyway, fingers crossed. We’ll see what happens. Since TNAV is so attractive in relation to the share price I bought 200,000 shares at 48p. Lloyds are owed c. £10m. But we’ll see this company bat out of difficulties caused by Covid.
