You were right tintin, ST endorsed strongly in his column, won't print the whole piece but his conclusion:- With the benefit of the deferred client capital raisings set to come through, news of forthcoming corporate clients wins, new mandates on the private client side (yet to be reported), and a far more profitable business mix following the reorganisation, the platform is in place for some bumper profit growth in 2015. Buy. http://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/2014/12/03/comment/simon-thompson/broking-for-a-profit-surge-yjhKYzx7OUrMHMS0dwiPQI/article.html

Initial trading this morning as expected. Nice top up point IMO. I would be pretty sure another article for ST will be coming within the next few days expanding on the positives.

Undervalued according to hannahh's lot, link to full note below. The shares continue to look undervalued. Without seeing the balance sheet we cannot calculate our “rule-of-thumb” valuation of 2% of AUM plus surplus capital, but that is obviously around £50m, more than twice WHI’s current market capitalisation. Meanwhile the PFER is only 12.0x which is barely two-thirds the sector’s (historic) PER, so much too low for a growing company. http://www.equitydevelopment.co.uk/doc/1291.pdf

Happy with that, in shape for a good 2015 and the increased divi reflects management's confidence. Agree the share price may remain soft for some time.

Sadly i agree. Expect a swift drop followed by steady buying from weakness?.

I concur. Initial thought were oh no, profit warning! But reading the details there is a lot of positivity, not least the increase in dividend underpinning managements confidence. Not too hopefully for todays performance though.

Trading Update, not bad really..... My key Points: 1) W H Ireland has undergone significant change during 2014 2) Progress has been made in growing like for like assets under management 3) Increasing the number of corporate clients. 4) Completing a major management and business reorganisation. 5) Group's underlying trading performance has improved slightly on last year. 6) Board now expects 2014 adjusted operating profits to be below its previous expectations. 7) Board has greater confidence for 2015. 8) Significant margin improvement across the business as a whole and in particular within the Private Wealth Management division, for 2015 9) Reorganisation.. Full financial benefits of which will become evident in 2015. 10)Asset growth has remained strong and at year end assets under management and advice had risen by approximately 10% on a like for like basis. 11)Corporate Broking continues increase. 12)Some 2014 fees delayed until 2015 13)Reflecting the Board's confidence in the outlook for 2015, it will be proposing to Shareholders an increase in the final dividend payment of 0.5p to 2p per Ordinary share. I have no idea how the retail punters will read this, but happy to hold for next year!.

Good RNS this morning I thought, seems to have gone un-noticed.."significantly increase funds under management over next 12-18 months". Also the pull back from floats, which seemed to happen late summer, might go the other way again next year, Gervais Williams wrote and article in the ST yesterday opining that small caps are in for a resurgence after a rough year, if that happens the enthusiasm for IPOs will return and all those pulled floats will be back with, presumably, others encouraged by what they see. Should get a general trading update in a few weeks if they follow last year.

Very strong numbers and bullish outlook from Cenkos this morning, admittedly one particularly large deal boosted them but aside from it their performance was good and remaining so going forward. Barring one-off news our next update I think December and hopefully we're enjoying similarly healthy business, if so our share price is looking a bit left behind imo.

Beginning to show good upward momentum again after the sideways consolidation. The recent article by Simon T in the IC has a fair value target of 180p. He also mentioned the Equity Development sum-of-the-parts valuation of 227p.

A good chance of a retest of the recent highs of 140 to come soon

Yep cheers that worked. There was a piece in the FT this morning about proposed changes in the way brokers are allowed to charge, the short of it being small brokers could have a tough time, scale will be important, it lends weight to the corporate activity theory. ....Charges for trading shares are bundled with the cost of broker research for fund managers. The FCA wants to separate these payments to reduce conflicts of interest, clarify the costs being incurred and ensure investors get a better deal. Martin Wheatley, chief executive of the FCA, said earlier this month that bundling "reduces transparency and created a link between research spend and trading volume, without a clear assessment of the value this offers to investors". The proposed reforms have triggered warnings that London's competitiveness as a financial centre could be put at risk by the changes, squeezing the profits of smaller asset managers and putting some small brokers out of business. Robert Talbut, chief investment officer at Royal London Asset Management, said: "You need to implement this reform on a global and consistent basis otherwise it would make asset managers in London less competitive relative to New York or Singapore." The chief executive of a boutique investment bank said: "This could be the end of the small and mid-cap brokers – not in the next six months but perhaps over three years.".....

Yes, paleje. That puts him on a similar structured share package to the CEO now. I thought yesterday's post-market close holdings announcement was interesting too. 10% shareholding bought (by way of CFD) by Polygon. Their strategy is here: http://www.polygoninv.com/our-strategies/european-event-driven-equities. Note the reference to "event driven equities" and, in particular, (1) M&A: favouring hostile, cross-border or otherwise complex transactions more likely to be misunderstood by the market, and (2) special situations: "piggybacking" on corporate activism and/or pre-deal opportunities. An 'event driven' approach to investment is the same terminology adopted by Oceanwood Capital, who took a 5% stake last November. See my posts at 1642 and 1667. I reckon they are banking on some corporate activity. Wouldn't surprise me at all if this was taken out. Really cheap on an AUM valuation – see Paul Scott recently. Definitely think we'll be back up to and past the March highs pretty soon.

Nice opening option package for the FD, let's hope he gets to exercise them at nil cost.

Good commentary by Paul Scott (in the other place) today. WHI still pricey on a PER basis, but looking cheap on an AUM basis. I'm happy to remain a holder here.

It's a good article and thanks Gargoyle2, agree ready and waiting in the main part but still, good research. Odd thing is people are selling when it seems to me that numbers are going to continue to improve and, barring some catastrophe (I don't think Labour is as big a threat at they make out) the best will come in FY2015 which kicks off in just over 4 months. Look ahead:)

Most of this very interesting article smacks of having been written beforehand. If they had been at odds to previous signals there might have been a delay in publication. I think these results were anticipated which is why there has been some profit-taking.
