|Time to buy.
CPG will cut costs to match any shortfall.
They have the advantage in bulk buying
|Compass Group (CPG) potential upcoming earnings-numbers surprise
|Read Panmure Gordon & Co's note on COMPASS GROUP PLC (CPG), out this morning, by visiting hxxps://www.research-tree.com/company/GB00BLNN3L44
"Compass has released a solid trading for the first half of the year with Organic revenue growth of 5.8% (similar run rate to 2015 and Q1) driven by new business and good retention rates. Like for Like was positive, reflecting modest pricing and some volume improvement. However, reported margin was down - 10bps due to the previously announced restructuring costs with underlying margin flat; however, this should recover in 2H. Outlook remains ‘positive and unchanged’ and we do not expect to make any significant changes to our ..."|
|Culture of eating out is getting greater by the years. Taken the opportunity of an ISA top up.|
|LONDON--Catering company Compass Group PLC (CPG.LN) said Monday that it is having a strong first half, with organic revenue growth of around 5.5%, and added that expectations for the full year remain positive.
The British support services company said it is seeing good levels of new business, high retention rates, and modest like-for-like revenue growth. It is expecting exchange rate movements to have a positive translation impact on first half revenue and profit of 35 million pounds ($52.04 million) and GBP5 million, respectively.
The company said that foreign exchange translation will also benefit full year revenue by GBP323 million and profits by GBP31 million, if current spot rates continue for the remainder of the year.
Compass will publish its results for the half year to March 31 on May 13.

|GS downgrade to Sell I am out been a great run|
|The options provided gave the same amount of cash. The first option was giving it back as capital, the second as a dividend. Shareholders were being given the opportunity to choose depending on their own tax position. That obviously doesn't apply if the shares are held in an ISA or a SIPP.
Whichever option is chosen, after the consolidation there will be a re-basing of each shareholder's cost price to allow for the consolidation.
IMHO, flatoutfred, DeanForester is probably correct. You may have taken a short-sighted day-by-day view of your daughter's long term financial wellbeing, especially as she (you) would have had a significant cash sum (pro rata, depending on the size of her holding) to invest in another share, or even to re-invest in CPG.|
|The bit about the C-shares is Round Objects.
There is no 10% deducted, instead a Tax Credit of 1/9th comes with the 56p dividend paid from them. This is purely nominal and satisfies any liability to income tax of a basic rate tax payer. It cannot be reclaimed, and higher rate taxpayers will be able to use that Tax Credit to offset part of their tax liability.
The whole point of the consolidation is to avoid a drop in the share price. You may have noticed that the share price of Compass has been rising, see top right. That means that the calculations made when they announced the Return of Capital/Special Dividend are now out of date. The share price may well rise after consolidation.|
|OK, never mind, I'm more canny with my daughters stuff so I got out as she would have been around £280 worse off and I didn't fancy sweating it out till the 28th. Had it been my own I might have stayed in.
Good Luck all, I've been burned with consolidations before so happier to be out.|
|Think it's 7th July which is the actual date of the consolidation as per the last RNS:
Record Time for entitlement to B Shares 6.00 p.m. on Monday
and/or C Shares and for the Share Consolidation. 7 July 2014
Share register of Existing Ordinary Shares
closed and Existing Ordinary Shares disabled
|Am I correct in saying that the Ex-Dividend date for the 56p dividend is 05/07/2014 ?|
|Depends on your own income and capital gains tax position and how you hold the shares (ie in an ISA or SIPP it makes no difference).|
|Is it best to take the Capital or Income?|
|Nice news this afternoon.|
|Plasybryn, can you post a summary of that?.|
|Worth listening to the Zak Mir interview on Tip TV where he discussed the Compass chart.|
|Good results and valuable return to shareholders discussed. Not sure why this is not followed much, but I always consider that a good thing. Ex dividend next week.|
|Pity that we fell back from the initial high point.|
|Alp it's a fantastic company, another example of EM headwinds caused by currency issues, this is going to be a major factor for the wider equity markets
|Why didn't I have the guts to short it again at 960+?
Momentum investing can be so powerful that it scares you out of implementng rational decisions.
CPG remains overly expensive in my opinion. Compared to its own history, to other outsourcers or on FcF/EV basis.
For future ref 892p.|
