I hope you didn’t buy all at once? As should always try build positions over time with a nice spread, helps for the drops. Also spread across other shares too, help mitigate losses, it just depends what your target and ambitions are? Age isn’t relative to the destination, but understand as you feel your time is constrained I would suggest being decisive in your direction and how far you travel.
No reason I can see, especially since director bought 17000@56p july2021. I’d assume just general movement of sells, someone offloading? Maybe add more soon as I own 15000 shares here. But I wouldn’t worry too much, wait a few years and I’m sure you’ll be very happy if you have the patience.
I have recently added (substantially, well for me it was). However I am finding it hard to be sure about this RNS. Suspect it's steady as she goes but much does seem to rest on Japan being able to come out of the current Covid situation and I see little sign of that happening. Guess the market will give me an opinion in a few minutes time.
Had quite a scare this morning. Looking through Yahoo Finance data they had HSD down nearly 70% to just 22p. A frantic cross-check to other sites quickly showed this was wrong! But even now, despite correcting the current price by mid-afternoon, they've still got this dramatic dip and bounce back on their daily graph as though it was for real. That said, Yahoo was still better than the Financial Times Porftolio today, which suddenly had my cash total about 20% too high. Rapid checking showed it had wrongly increased the number of shares I hold in each company by about one-fifth. Just shows how widely these Internet glitches can spread their effects...
£1 a share would be lovely to get back to. Who knows, but it feels like we’re on a pleasant journey at the moment. I remember the lovely view from the heady heights of £1.40’s Would be nice to go back there. Let the journey at accompanying 7% yield continue.
the rise has to be someone building a stake in the company. If its sold to someone or taken private I would like £1 a share but would settle for £0.80, thats a good profit for me. Maybe an RNS will be out in a few weeks to show a rise in stake or no one is selling......
Yes sure feels like something. Ownership is pretty interesting: 48.78% owned by Polonsky family members & their foundation. Premier Miton also in their with 5.31% (since Nov'19). Maybe there is light at the end of the litigation tunnel which has dragged on - those things always end of getting settled/sorted & the company has been planning for such. So I'm putting in another £5k. The dividend has been solid through all the ups (not many!) and downs, which is some comfort.
if you look at number of trades it takes very few to raise the price as not a largely traded share compared to say Lloyds with ups and downs daily more of a longer stable holding with the divi playing a large part i suspect good prospect going forward hopefully own opinion so dyor best wishes
Here I am replying to myself - added on the 22nd and a fair few more this morning. Amazed to see a 12% rise - wish I could always be so wise before the event. However - I would be happier if I knew why it has risen so much today - I mean why today?

I took most off the table just before X dividend date ... bought half back with an average of 33.55p making 36.15 to include the dividend not received so that's a net profit of around 8% from the selling price excluding the juicy dividend.
RE: New business results for year ended 30 June 202024 Sep '20
The endless litigation proceedings are what's not to like. I will take years to get through them all. Only then will the share price go up. The business model is too slow to increase profit and revenue quick enough on its own.

Hansard Global plc
New business results for the year ended 30 June 2020
Hansard Global plc ("Hansard" or "the Group"), the specialist long-term savings provider, issues its new business results for the financial year ended 30 June 2020 ("FY 2020").
· New business for the year ended 30 June 2020 was £159.8m in PVNBP ("Present Value of New Business Premiums") terms, up 2.5% from FY 2019 of £155.9m.
· New business for Q4 2020 was £41.3m, 13.2% lower than Q4 2019 of £47.6m.
· The Covid-19 environment presented challenges for our distribution network to meet clients and conclude sales activity during Q4 2020. While this impacted our Q4 2020 new business, our technology-based processes and business continuity preparedness helped greatly to mitigate against these challenges.
· Our Latin American region was the highlight for new business growth over the course of FY 2020, finishing up 44.0% compared to FY 2019.
· Assets under administration recovered in Q4 2020 after the global stock market sell-off in March and totalled £1.09bn at 30 June 2020, up from £1.08bn at 30 June 2019.
· The Group remains well capitalised with highly liquid shareholder funds.
Gordon Marr, Group Chief Executive Officer, commented:
"In one of the most challenging periods in living memory, Hansard has delivered a resilient new business result for the year, finishing 2.5% up on 2019. Our staff and distribution partners have dealt admirably with the challenges presented and have shown that with flexibility, innovation and technology, many hurdles can be overcome.
While the outlook for new business depends largely on the severity of on-going Covid-19 restrictions, our core strategic projects of Japan and our systems upgrade continue to make progress. Importantly, we still plan to launch our new proposition in Japan before the end of this calendar year."
Is there any hope for this share? Price just keeps going down and with the stock markets all scared of endless corona lockdowns will the company continue to make money? If the dividend is cut again then the price could go below 20p. I was hoping for a return to above 50p by now.
