Broker Liberum reiterates strong BUY and TP of 160p for JP citing strong circulation and cover price rise for i and continued asset disposal— ashley highfield (@ashleyhi) September 13, 2016
And, lo, at close of play, shares had risen to 15p each. JP had to issue a notice just after 4pm:"The Board of Directors of Johnston Press plc notes the rise in the Company's share price today and confirms that it knows of no operational or corporate reason for the price movement." Just after this morning's opening there was another rise, to 16.2p.
Is there a stalker looking for a takeover ?
