From sharecast today:"Halma also declined as Liberum downgraded the stock to 'sell' from 'hold'.The brokerage said the company's first-half results were solid and that defensive market exposure and well-respected management remain attributes."However, acquisitions are becoming harder to move the needle. Moreover, we expect multiple contraction as deflation has come to an end."DD

And me too..... the deficit ( £94m ) could be eliminated with just over 1 years worth of profits and recognised with an increase in the contributions being made. That is reviewed every 3 years. I suppose that as the deficit is an effective doubling of the liability, this is the cause for concern and hence marked down.

Perceived as a safe stock perhaps? Markets have a real appetite for risk at this point in time Imo post elections hence the sell off in gold and other 'safe' stocks. All imo but it usually drifts a bit going into results which it then picks up again there after..

REDS, remarkable recovery story not yet well known. Trading update 5th September. REDS provides software applications for smart buildings and counts pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline and real estate player Meyer Bergman among its customers. Constant flow of new contracts with large multinationals. They got recently a 12 million contract with UBS which represented 50% of REDS' market capital! UBS have 700 more branches needing possibly the same service. New CEO Mark Braund very positive and invested his own money along with the financial director. Mark is a specialist in turning around struggling companies. He has already done it with REDS in less than a year. http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/redstoneconnect-plc-REDS/share-price?java=1 http://uk.advfn.com/news/share/LSE%3AREDS hxxp://www.channelweb.co.uk/crn-uk/news/2451217/redstone-shrugging-off-baggage-of-the-past-with-connect-ib-deal

Another great week for Halma as the pound weakened which answered the question I raised in 268. Can it go much further seems unlikely but I thought that when the share price was 870p.

Over £2m worth of shares changed hands in the auction at 5p above the closing price. This company has aroused a certain interest.

Hi wildshot Re 265 Worth Every Penny----- Article in the I.C exactly a year ago. Quality doesn't come cheap,but Harriet Russell has identified five shares that easily live up to their punchy price-tags. I have updated the share prices. BT 444p now 407p Next 7475p now 5280p Victrex 2086p now 1420p Whitbread 5060p now 3913p Halma 772p now 940p Plenty to ponder on these numbers. The FTSE was 6710 when this article was published. So the question is can Halma continue to beat the Market and also outperform some well run companies. For example Prudential.

Good results out today and another dividend increase. Yet this board is like a ghost town. Always a good sign for a share :-)

Half year results next Tuesday. The chart looks good for breakout. The IC description of the company (thanks Hedgehog)is very meaningful.

From the "INVESTORS CHRONICLE" 19 June 2015: "WORTH EVERY PENNY Quality doesn't come cheap, but Harriet Russell has identified five shares that easily live up to their punchy price-tags ... Halma (HLMA) Industrial technology group Halma has earned its status as an 'old reliable' stock - one that investors can rely on for a solid return, consistent growth and steady income. Case in point: at the full-year results in June, the group hiked the dividend by another 7 per cent - for the 35th consecutive year. Even last year's weaker industry growth and currency headwinds couldn't hold Halma back and the group reported its 12th consecutive year of underlying growth. The secret, according to the group's bosses, is paying attention to long-term social trends and keeping up to date with current health, safety and environmental legislation. ... Halma might serve as the best example of an acquisition-led growth strategy. Last year the group spent £100m on new companies to add to the group. But it's clear it tries to buy quality and never bets too big, preferring so-called 'bolt on' deals that can easily be integrated. ... Essentially, whether Halma is buying up businesses of growing on its own, the group invests in making products the world cannot do without. And when the market is volatile, this kind of reliability generally comes at a price."

You Dad still own them EI? Next results 12 June, might see some strength on the run up, even though this type of share is out of favour. However, ALNT is top of my top-up list at 30Xp, for what it's worth. Bought AZN at £42 in the kids ISAs 2 days ago. I want to own all of PNN. You have any favourites? apad
