|beautiful chart here|
|Is the sell-off justified?|
|Good news today. Pleasantly surprised by £50m return on basis company holding too much cash.|
|Thinking about buying some MPI shares. I have some Robert Walters and they have gone through their 2011 high, when they had their last statement. MPI's chart hasn't quite followed yet. Any views?|
|How can directors be selling with results imminent? Closed period?|
|Also noted that directors have been selling shares over the last few days. Q1 trading update out on 14/04.|
|Gohil18 - I also took note of the points you mentioned and believe MPI is a bit toppy at the moment. But happy to hear any bullish views.|
|Progress looks promising and net cash balance is enviable. But PBT to Mcap multiple of around 20x! What makes MPI deserved of the rating please? Most other recruiters are around 10 x. Dividend is not that attractive either. Look forward to some insight. Thanks!|
|Great results. Very quiet board. Sounds good!|

|What a poor report this morning. MPI share price is going to tank I rechon. Short!|
|Hays at 52wk high. Where is this going?|
|Improved performances from the UK and US in the third quarter for recruiter Michael Page International were counterbalanced by flat sales in Europe and declines in Asia-Pacific.
The FTSE 250 group delivered a 0.4% increase to £127.0m reported gross profit for the quarter, down 0.2% on constant currencies, and said it expected full year operating profit to be around £68m.
Chief Executive Officer Steve Ingham argued it was a robust performance against what were "challenging but gradually improving market conditions" across most of its regions, with the UK recording its best quarterly year-on-year rise since early 2011.
"In all our regions and key disciplines, in the third quarter we saw increasing year-on-year quarterly growth rates in constant currency."
However, Europe, Middle East and Africa, 38% of group revenue on the quarter, was down a reported 0.9% and down 7% at constant currency, while Asia Pacific declined 9.5% reported and 4.3% at constant exchange rates.
Ingham pointed to some strong individual market performances, with offices in the US, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Turkey and the Middle East all doing particularly well.
"The third quarter saw a return to growth in Brazil, while Australia, France and Germany experienced another challenging quarter."
The group has been actively manage its cost base and cut operational support headcount by a further 41 people during the quarter, with an investment in operational headcount increasing fee earners by 157.
Although he insisted there was limited visibility Ingham said he expected another challenging quarter, "with difficult conditions likely to continue in some markets, but with gradual improvements in others".|
|I'm short here after this morning, overvalued.|
|Michael Page International - interim results, rating still pricing in a trading recovery which is uncertain? http://bit.ly/1cKiqwv|
|Going down Mr Page,ground floor please.
Need some shorts during this incumbent weather.
Taxi for Micheal Page.|
|Michael Page - trading "difficult" rating absurd http://bit.ly/1bI90zw|
|Unemployment results not good, and brokers recommending 'sell'.|
|I am short here too. It part hedges nicely with my large holdings in Staffline, Matchtech and Harvey Nash. It is on a very high rating considering the weakening figures they are showing quarter on quarter|
Agreed - also short - announcement today was unimspiring, and share price valued fairly highly.|
|Open my first short for a long time this morning.
Q1 last year MPI were up around 7% from that point share price dropped 25% in a month.
Q1 this year MPI are down 7% .
Weakness in this sector usually gets punished heavily. Any thoughts on this short term anyone?|
