The IC have just today published their annual review of the AIM 100, their guide to the junior market. SOM are a Buy: Https://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/shares/2018/04/20/the-aim-100-2018-90-to-81/ "89. Somero Enterprises High-tech concrete levelling might not sound like the most fascinating specialism, but Somero Enterprises (SOM) is proving just how lucrative this industry can be. Last year’s performance took Somero ever closer to its $90m sales target for 2018. And the company now targets a net cash balance of at least $15m, with plans to distribute 50 per cent of excess cash as a special dividend. Where could future growth lie? Europe has enjoyed excellent revenue momentum, and the equipment fleet here may be due for technological upgrades, possibly engendering new opportunities. Meanwhile, bosses have identified a serious addressable market in China and also plan to focus on wider international expansion, along with new product development. At 395p, Somero trades on a multiple of 15 times broker FinnCap’s forecast adjusted EPS for 2018. More demanding than when we tipped the company (279p, 28 Dec 2017), but supported by compound annual revenue growth of 17 per cent from 2013 to 2017, and the attractive prospect of supplementary dividends. Buy."

rhomboid/greyingsurfer Thanks for the ideas. I did originally buy the shares online with Barclays but took certificates last year as I didn't want to tie up my Marketmaster account and my SIPP in an endless transfer where I wouldn't be able to access them. Despite filing transfer instructions in July my SIPP only transferred at the end of last month and during that time I have not been able to sell any of the shares. I have spent 40 minutes on the phone to Computershare (the registrars) who assured me that I had filled in the correct forms and despite SOM and SPSY being US companies the are in fact UK tradeable shares. I spent 2 minutes on the phone to IG and IG now say rejecting the shares was an error so I should resubmit them.

I tried buying SOM in my Barclays Smart Investor acc after the move, and failed. So I went and bought them in my Selftrade acc instead. I did raise the issue with Barclays, but other than being told that my account was important to them and they had had lots of complaints about the same or similar issues, and they were looking at is as a matter of urgency (along with all the other issue I've raised!) I've heard no more. Peter

AJ Bell / Youinvest might be your best bet, no experience of this problem but on every other issue I’ve raised with them they’ve been exceptionally helpful, for instance Somero dividends are paid in full whereas other brokers withhold tax

I held these in a Barclays account and back in August last year they told me I could no longer hold them once Barclays migrated to Smart Investor. As a result I took them in certificated form as I didn't have time to sort out an online account elsewhere during the holiday period. I received my certificates in November and have tried to dematerialise them into an online account and have so far failed. Hargeaves Lansdown said they couldn't accept them. IG index said they could so I opened an account , filled in a CREST transfer form and sent them off. IG Have returned the share certificate saying they can't dematerialise them as they aren't UK CREST settled. Has anyone else had a similar problem and managed to resolve it.

Up again in the afternoon yesterday - that's a 27.5p rise in 2 days. Interesting to see if it happens again, which would strongly suggest American buying.

:o)) Interesting close today - American buying perhaps given the afternoon upsurge? I assume the £41,000 at 386p reported after the close was the buy which was largely responsible.

Really enjoyed the presentation and agree with the points made here by others. Apart from the US and Europe looking very promising for growth I thought the comments about India were interesting, with sales of smaller machines more popular because of lack of a good road system which limits the size of projects still. Also hadn't known that due to hardly any refrigeration facilities about 50% of fruit and vegetables end up rotting. Perhaps I need to keep my eyes open for companies that are involved in providing refrigeration services to India? And SOM are in an excellent position to see the first signs of any impending economic slowdown which is worth keeping an eye on, fortunately they are very upbeat at this time.

Yes a terrific presentation, thanks.. I thought the whole management team presented brilliantly, answering every question..(and there were some very good directed questions too)....in detail. I loved Jack's optimism and his words that "he had never seen business as busy as it is now". Agree that the new products being developed for the high-rise sector looks very exciting.

An excellent presentation, well worth listening to. The section about the new high rise product from 11 minutes in particular is very exciting, especially as they're expecting decent sales from as early as Q4 of this year. This year's January selling trade show in the USA was their "best show in 10 years" with attendances up, customers "really busy", "work going into next year" etc. In Europe customers are "getting busier" - "all across Europe".

The record date is the next working day, not three days later. And in this case it's STILL the next working day, just that the next working day is 5 days away...!

Thats the record date, always a bit confusing. All uk shares go ex div on a thursday and then normally the record date is three days after. Anyway the price has moved down but from people selling rather than the MM marking the price down.

It's almost like folk forgot there was a special dividend as well. Initial drop of 2p at open, then sudden realisation and further 7p drop for the special around 10am.

Nope, Tuesday is the 3rd (not the 2nd), so today is the ex-divi day, due to Easter.

I think the ex div date should actually be next Tues 2 Apr which is the day before the 3 Apr "on the share register" date. But multiple sources (e.g. Stockopedia) have it down as today. I assume Easter is somehow confusing things (maybe me!)

ex div for 12.75p plus special 3.6p and the price has barely moved.

Congratulations to all who saw something when this thread started and considered it worth investing in back then. The trend throughout 2014 and 2015 was very gently upwards - but patient holders were rewarded in 2016, and again in 2017, and again already in 2018! A beautiful stock. Lovely chart.

I've given up being excited re China, and I sense that a good proportion of investors feel the same way. I'm struggling to think of any company that has really made a rip-roaring success of investing there (hoping one of you can help me here). There's lots of talk about potential (and of course the potential is there) but where is the meaningful end result? The US and Europe appear to be picking up; that's of more interest I think.

Though the Somero share price defied gravity (ie the rest of the market) yesterday and some of the reversal today is probably natural, there could also be an element of concern about the growing trade war between the US and China. OK, currently China hardly registers in terms of turnover (and certainly not profit) for the company, but the directors have regularly indicated the potential for growth in that region. Anti-US sentiment will undoubtedly reduce that potential for the time being.
