I'm pretty sure from reading the blog that PP wasn't aware of the size of the original contract when making his comments though generally I agree the share price did get a little ahead of itself recently on available broker upgrades and Ben Stokes relatively cautious outlook statement.

Here is the original Jamnagar contract from February. http://uk.advfn.com/news/UKREG/2013/article/56260413 Commenting, Ben Stocks, CEO of Porvair said: "We are delighted to have been selected for this high profile work in India that significantly strengthens our position in Energy and Industrial filtration markets. Elements of the engineering will be similar to the work we are currently doing for POSCO in South Korea, but the initial Jamnagar installation will be three times larger. The project is modular in design. Engineering work will start immediately with much of the work being exported from our plant at Segensworth, UK. The financial impact of the contract will be spread over several years." The original POSCO contract was for $10-12 million so you could be conservative with $46 million. Just found the Pauly Pilot blog.A very good read and good insight into why a highly rated stock such as PRV can suddenly fall. Have to disagree with him regarding todays contract RNS being a PR exercise.If the contract has been upped by $12 million that is very significant I would say. A guy on their thinks the contract could now be worth between $46 to $70 million. This from the last results. "Several large contracts are now underway. All are proceeding to plan but have a limited impact on these results"

Hi Lurkio Sure somewhere that we were told it was three times larger than the Posco contract,might have been in the podcast,or in the results will have to check back. SO that made the contract 30million we have had at 25 % increase 1st time so say upto 37.50miliion and now another 25% hike which makes the contract over 46 million. Might be wrong, anyone else remember if we had an indication of the worth of the Reliance contract

hell23 - difficult to say. What we do know is that when the original contract was signed its value was undisclosed for 'commercial reasons'. However later in the year the CEO referred to the deal as being 'larger than the POSCO contract', which is valued at $10m. Whatever the number it's all good - and a timely reminder to us all that this is a business whose products and services are in demand from some pretty serious manufacturers around the globe.I would imagine that at some point this week an analyst or two will hazard a guess as to what kind of a figure the extension will produce.

Reliance contract up by another 25% Does that add up to an extra 10 million ?

Well that was a shock as a comparative new boy I have not seen that before and I have gone from holding what I thought was a climbing share to being stopped out Great! so as it stopped out at the top end of the shake I will get straight back in. Very interesting reading the comments from you guy's, I feel better now

So for those using SB as our main instrument it may be wise to pull out of our positions ahead of summer period taking profits and re-enter wih the same companies to avoid huge falls and instabilities like this one? Afterall Porvair isn't exactly a volatile share normally! Of course, my ISA shares aren't affected as long as they recover, or at least start to come back up September unwards, but for spread betting I'm thinking the above might be a more prudent approach.

Almost exactly a year ago to the day there was a three-fold increase on normal volume that precipitated a weakening of the share price until the first week in September. The fall today is that bit more magnified than last year because the run-up to the share going xd was proportionately greater than last year. This will now consolidate, I guess, around a 245-250 support level until the next IMS. As ever the thing to look for is any selling activity by firms holding 3% or more; if they- who will be far better informed than we mere PIs - are content to sit tight than so am I.

I got in at around 250 so I haven't lost anything. Just watched my profits go up to a considerable sum and upped my stop a little. I expected a little bit of stagnation or a gradual fall with it being the summer and then the share price to begin to gain momentum around September, but in a single morning it fell and hit my stop. Literally when I was in the shower. I will reasses things and am sure that the correct time will come to re enter. I still maintain faith in this company. I also only started trading for real in Jan of this year after 2 years of research and practising with mock investements. I'm overall pleased with my profits, especially in such a short period of time but I never foresaw such a number of very, very good companies experience such inexplicable falls in share price for no apparent reason. I know in this case it will be the MM at work/a tree shake but I see other very good companies share price slowly falling by quite a bit too. Is this just what happens in summer?

2 at - I hope you acted quickly to lower your stop-loss. The mms will have caught out people this morning who maintain too tight stops.

P7, That was a big drop on very little volume, which would suggest a tree shake! Sadly no-one can answer than one for you, but I continue to stick with the story of this company and have a good holding.dyor.

Novice trader here. I've gone from a considerable amount up with porvair to, in the summer months, drastic fall and now I've been stopped out. Should I buy back in at the low price in anticipation of the ride back to 300?

Yes must admit, I sold my lot at 2.82, still firmly believe in company & management, just felt it was due a wee correction after a Stirling run. Will have no hesitation in jumping back on board later in year. That's if I can time it right, usually my timing stinks!!! GLACM

Historically this share always hits the doldrums in August, shortly after going XD. It slips through its 50 and 150 day moving average and then picks up strong momentum again early September ahead of the company's IMS later in the month.These are tightly held, so the price will respond strongly to buying/selling pressure either way. Good luck to the profit-takers - it's been a great ride since Christmas. Personally, I'm staying on board; PRV have a range of product that's in demand, benefits from proprietary technology and excellent post-installation sales, has sound management and - who knows? - might even succumb to a juicy bidder.

The rising trend seems to have been broken. It is running out of steam. I admit i have sold mine as i don't like the look of the chart. It will probably go up now!

12at; the shares have doubled over the past 9 months and are now on a pretty high rating. I would be very surprised if it wasn't profit taking.

does anyone know the cause of this fall? nothing's been announced and its too much of a pull back to be simply profit taking, surely? tree shake?
