    I suspect the low estimate will be raised when in the next couple of days.

    Given it is fresh in the mind of the brokers, it may even make the broker picks for 2015.

    Bingo.

    Craigs have upgraded it to a buy with a price target of $1.70.

    I shan't post it here since I'd probably get in trouble but its fairly good reading

    Weather cleared now. Have just checked my back yard peach tree. The 2 green peaches are still on the tree (there were only 2 to begin with).

    This one is more relevant.
    I guess that's a risk of the SCALES business. What mother nature dishes up.
    Yes all it takes is a 5 min Hail storm to devastate crops
    A few years of good weather and consistent returns and great divs may give the perception of less risk and the s/p rerate up.

    I talked to a harvester in Hawkes Bay who said that the recent bad weather had caused delays in harvesting but no damage.

    I've got a sneaking suspicion we're going to see an SSH notice from ACC in the next few days

    I think as we move closer to the full year results(expected to exceed PFI) and bumper dividend to be announced, we should see some appreciation in price. Dividend hunters will wake up to this one sooner or later.

    Totally agree, looks like the instos and punters are just waking up to this.

    Default No SSH from me

    I own a few of these.

    I bought on the assumptions that:
    the fundamentals look OK;
    The P/E is attractive;
    The downtrend is about to break;
    The wedgie (or whatever the really technical people call it) is about to break to the upside;

    But mostly I needed a 'fix' after a few weeks of cold turkey.
