Why the sudden drop in the SP? anyone any ideas?
I think so johnv. He and his missy may just be buying a holiday home or such like - so imv you can't react to every bit of news (otherwise your trading costs would be prohibitive). The stock looks cheap to me - fwd per of 14.5 & PEG of less that 0.5, barriers to entry etc (dyor) - so I will be sitting tight (subject to other events)! Good luck!
Overhang from the director selling?( I know its not a lot) and gap to fill 300 to 312p.
Good write up in Shs mag; As the mania for M&A continues, the ability to do good deals remains undiminished as drainage expert Polypipe (PLP) illustrated with its 5 August acquisition of Welsh-based manufacturer and distributor of ventilation systems, Nuaire. In a deal that cost Polypipe £145 million analysts are characterising Nuaire a good strategic fit and is in line with management’s stated strategy of broadening its exposure to markets that benefit from energy legislation. Analyst Christen Hjorth at Numis thinks strategic and synergy considerations aside, the deal should ‘be substantially earnings accretive (15% in 2016 – the first full year of ownership).’ When we flagged up Polypipe as a Play of the Week on 16 July, we told readers that a combination of favourable UK market conditions, overseas opportunities and potential acquisitions funded by a robust balance sheet were prominent among the £651 million cap’s attractions. Not only is Polypipe one of the largest suppliers of plastic pipe systems for commercial and residential applications in the UK, it is also one of the 10 leading European piping suppliers. With Polypipe trading on a 2016 P/E of 12.4 and dividend yield of 3.2%, Numis raises its target price to 360p and upgrades to a ‘buy’ recommendation. Both Deutsche Bank and Numis raised targets after this acquisition and we share their bullish view.
IC stick with their buy rating Polypipe’s (PLP) access to high-growth markets backed by environmental legislation has been significantly boosted by its £145m acquisition of ventilation product manufacturer Nuaire. News of the deal, which is expected to spark double digit enhancement to EPS, sent shares in the building products specialist up 8 per cent. As legislation aims to reduce carbon emissions, the UK ventilation market is forecast to outstrip domestic construction market growth. Wales-based Nuaire, which will continue to operate as an independent division, generated sales of £63.5m and profits of £12.8m in the year to June. Prior to the acquisition, broker Berenberg forecast EPS of 17.9p in the year to December 2015, rising to 21.3p in 2016. IC View: At 322p, shares in Polypipe have jumped 24 per cent on our buy advice (259p, 1 Apr 2015), yet even before factoring in this earning-enhancing deal still trade at a discount to peers. Given the group’s increased exposure to vibrant legislation-backed markets, we’re keeping it on a buy. Last IC view: Buy, 259p, 1 Apr 2015
This is a bit leaky. Broke out yesterday and today they announce an acquisition. I put these in my Stock challenge with the aim to buy these before results. Time for a re-think.
Keyno, They may prefer to use copper as with sweated joints they can be smaller than the plastic and tend to look much neater.
This looks like a good acquisition to me given that the ventilation business is growing fast. Also good to see an in line statement (below) given that we get the interims in 2 weeks. Perhaps the acquisition was leaked - which may explain why the share price rose yesterday. opening higher to day as well! Polypipe current trading Our strategic growth initiatives are delivering on plan in a continued positive market environment in our main UK market, which means we remain confident that the Company will deliver results for the year in line with board expectations. Polypipe will report its interim results for the six months ending 30 June 2015 on 20 August 2015.
Finally broke through the 280p mark - new closing high if we hold this level!
looking to breakout
Main write up in momemntum investor this month at 267p
I was taking a look round a new-build house yesterday and was told that the pipes were coppper, not plastic, this being the "preferred" material "these days". I was a bit suprised at that remark. Comments anybody?
A very nice set of results I think, only reason we are down today IMO is because the market as a whole is down.

A separate RIS announcement has been released to the market at the same time as the release of the Company's full year results.
2nd time in a week the share price has had a dramatic fall just the markets close.
Think it is just high volatility - nothing to concern yourself about if a long term investor. Does anyone know when the prelims are - Sharescope indicates that they are due anytime?
I tried to evaluate what caused that drop yesterday, but most of the sells were very small with a couple decent sized PI sized sells in among barring the two chunky sells at 1551. I thought perhaps somehow people had heard a news leak of a negative RNS might come out this morning, but nothing. Just one of those twists triggered by ... nothing!
Maybe somebody got divorced!
c300k sell this pm, is all I can see
Wonder what caused the very sudden 'end of day' drop......anyone any ideas?
If we hold 270p it will be a new high!
Breaking out!
Prelims are on 26th Mar (from website)
