Was well oversold. I bet the short has been closed.

One comment on director buys. Though the company isn't in a closed period the directors cannot buy if they are aware of any other price sensitive news. There may indeed be in possession of price sensitive news if they already have interest in the sale of the Brass Division.

Thanks ED always helpful to have others views. For anyone interested short positions are declared here... HTTP://www.fca.org.uk/static/documents/short-positions-daily-update.xls No major shorting in PFL which is good news as it suggests the shares have fallen too far.

The big trade was the uncrossing in the closing auction. It was both a buy and a sell. Yes, it was unusually big and the buy side may have been shorts closing, as the price was rising into the close, pressuring them.

Did anyone notice the large buy at a premium on clos? I may or may not be right but there had been a short in the company last week I can recall and they may have had to close their position. You can check short positions from FCA website. I think the short was 0.5% but don't hold me to it.

edmund, what is not true about it? The last interim dividend per share was 3.1p and the most recent interim dividend per share was 2.9p.

Not true. I think you need to read the company statements. The deeply discounted rights shares also had that dividend, so I did not suffer an overall reduction in yield. To call it a con is a way over the top. Anyway this is the wrong thread to discuss this, CNCT thread perhaps better.

3.1p reduced to 2.9p A real decrease. A total con in my opinion.

They didn't reduce it. The dividend was slightly lowered to account for the cheap new listed shares. It amounted to a hold in the dividend rate overall if I recall, the yield was not cut in real terms. TBH when companies are acquiring and growing, a good dividend is a rarity anyway.

I didn't particularly like the way they reduced the dividend with the acquisition, I thought that set a dangerous precedent.

True, but value will out in the end. I think there shift more into the distribution space takes advantage of their skilld and the internet sales market. I also sold some at 164p and it is true it took a couple of goes to add back at 145p. The thin trading does sometimes give rise to opportunities though to buy and to sell, so there are pluses and minuses; but around results there should be much better liquidity. Also, after the acquisition Connect is getting quite big. In a more normal market I suspect they should be easier to deal in.

I have held CNCT in the past, I sold recently at 165p. It is thinly traded and I found that you cannot deal in any size, which puts me off. Both KCOM and PHNX have much bigger nms.

Agree about Phoenix. Recently added there. Another 6% yield is Connect PLC, a long standing business that has had the share price muted by needing to raise cash for a rather promising acquisition. That is after all on of the main purposes of being listed.

Another mid cap that I like is Phoenix (PHNX) which currently yields over 6% and is a cash generation machine.

Eastbourne, it doesn't have to be either or. I would certainly consider PFL at a lower level. For KCOM, I would advise reading: http://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/2015/06/08/tips-and-ideas/share-tips/kcom-springs-for-growth-GtZiyhyIJdxPf9HoaEcSmO/article.html They are in a pretty good position, their triple/quad play offerings are going well and telecoms are a very defensive business. A yield of 6% growing at 10% a year is an absolute steal.

RCTurner2, I've just had a gander at KCOM. As of today: PFL is £1.0465 KCOM is 90.625p I don't see much appeal in KCOM, yes the dividend is good however there is no point having a decent dividend if the share price looks toppy, profits are fairly low and revenue has flat lined. I'd far rather be buying PFL as of today, we will find out which offers the best return over the coming months / years.

The company is oversold however a bid could come at any time.

Eastbourne, KCOM for example is in a much better condition and has a yield of nearly 6% with a BOD raising the div 10% a year. I really don't think the numbers here are much to shout about.

Should bounce back reasonably quickly well oversold.

Debt will be paid down substantially when the company sells off its Brass Division and with good free cash flow it should not take long to extinguish debt.
