I've been through all the director buys and Stephen Baileys buys have all been well timed - he also hasn't been a seller so he looks like he sees the bigger longer term picture. Yesterday's acquisition looks very interesting, looks like it adds a lot of synergies and probably makes WCW look much more attractive as a bid target imo. They seem to have got G&EIS at a good price. Personally I think that Bailey doubled his holding because they are likely to be well ahead of expectations. At the interims they said: "The second half of the current year has started strongly and I can report that stockbroking volumes have been particularly buoyant since early September. Your board is confident of capitalising on the strong start in the second half." If they are well ahead then they will probably put out a trading statement after the year end in April. He couldn't buy then as he will be privy to insider info near to the statement. He wouldn't want to buy after that as the price would probably have risen sharply. So his last chance for a major add to his position is now imo, as soon as they have annonced the acquisition - he couldn't buy just before because he knew of the acquisition and the market didn't. That's my opinion anyway. I would think some very good results will be published in June and the impact of the acquisition spelt out which will significantly enhance next years eps. The acquisition gets a mention in the Mail today by Geoff Foster and in the Independent DoubleorQuits tells me. CR

Looks like there's never been many watching this one anyway - which is a great sign imo - no hype in the price. CR

My mistake - it's the same director, just doubled his holding. I've gone through the RNS and this guy seems to have good timing. He has never bought this heavy before and his previous heaviest buying came in 98-99 - just before they rocketed. CR

ISAable too. Two directors increasing their holdings by 30% at this level - that's a big shout isn't it? H1 results said H2 would be strong too. CR

Bid? - are these being stalked? It's the hot sector and the chart is going to the moon. A director bought another 10K today, increasing his holding by 30% Fiske said yesterday that consolidation was going to be the thing in the broker sector and a little one like this looks a prime target imo. CR

Not going to make you rich at 1.60 barring takeover Was a buy at £1 but I missed it. Made a killing on it in the 90s selling start of 4Q 1999

Well there are the good interims. So what price now? However not generating cash and the return on investments 2nd half could return to last years levels. Then what?

It's diving because it's a bad year for financial/investment companies and also compounded by the lack of interest in PEP/ISA investments. Think you should check out the cash pile/burn levels of this company before trying to catch the knife.

Is this a falling knife or a buying opportunity?

Large acquisition today which should help Walker Crips profits to back over the £2m mark. Shares are being issued to the vendors at 150p vs. current mkt price of 130p.

One way of getting in the the floatation of the LSE is to buy shares in companies like this one. Gordon

Dunno - but I picked some up y'day at 175 - the level2 data was showing the lead MM leading the others up (and today back down) the garden path. All well and good today at 177-187 with all MMs agreeing. Strange for them to drop in the first place given the decent results just posted. Do you use their investorlink service?
