Expect there to be renewed interest here as Shares Magazine recommend STHR as a buy with a good write up. Their recommendations are usually spot on, with many of the shares they tip rising. Their last tip UDG has flown away.
I notice that for the last week, we have had a steady rise in the share price. I have taken a small gamble and topped up, trusting we will be back to at least mid 700 -800. The question then will be will we get another whopping dividend and hold or sell???
Oh WOW, how do they do that??? Wish I could do the same when I want to load up on a share. Seems there are sharks everywhere. I like you wonder how it is when there are more buys than sells and the price goes down, and visa/ verse.
I did say a few weeks ago, when this share price dropped so dramatically , that this was a buy, a no brainer. If the insiders are buying huge tracts, then they are confident in the company. However, some of you did poo poo me. Let's hope all goes well from now on.
Just bought back in after selling in September for 381p. This must be the bargain of the year, and pays an amazing dividend. At this price on a quick calculation it will pay 17% plus. fill your boots, remember to buy when the market is fearful. Warren Buffet.
The Directors must be excited and positive about these recent deals, as looking at the directors buys you will see they have all recently been buying bundles of shares. Had there been plenty of sells, then you need to be worried. Lets wait and see before everyone jumps ship. Possibly and good time to top up, and 8% drop is excessive, this is what you would expect from an AIM share, not a blue chip 100.
Dividend up, sales up, profits up, excellent results especially with retail stores struggling against internet sales. When I go into the store in Worcester, it is always busy and seems to be very popular with Europeans, Cannot understand why the share price has not climbed. This is obviously a very dynamic company.
I believe that there will soon be a trading announcement, in Feb, and final results in March. If they follow previous years results, the share price should more than double. Last year they leapt from 8 p to 26p in Feb after trading announcement. So hold onto your hats. There was also a director buy on Dec 14, at a higher price than today, of a substantial amount. Confidence in the company.
I totally agree with Callerone. GSK are a blue chip company, employing the best researchers and management. You only have to follow some of these brokers to see that many of them are numptys. Their ratings and prices are way out of synch. When the CEO of GSK has over £1m. of his own money invested, I think it shows confidence in the company. Our family have held GSK for over 50 years now and GSK has done us all well. It is a share you can buy on the dips and forget, and I believe that it is now on a dip and a good time to buy, it will recover again next year. Hold.
Very disturbing to see that there have been two very large director sales yesterday, have they no confidence in their own company? Also other director sales on 15th April. Surely no matter what, people will still want houses, especially in the south and London, no matter what the price. If you can afford a house for £2m + what difference is a few thousand going to make when you are also guaranteed that the property will always be saleable and will increase in value?
