|MMs games,because I bought some when everything else was falling.||trewsa|
|anyone know the reason for the large fall this morning,results were good and board optimistic for future,||manrobert|
|moving up week by week ahead of next weeks results which should be ahead of market forecasts||manrobert|
|it would be nice if someone coul explain what all that means,||manrobert|
|should start to move up soon in anticipation of better than expected results.||manrobert|
|Manrobert good to see a recent post, this thread is to quiet! Encouraging to see the shares rising in anticipation of very good results August 20th.||becky8|
|looks like the heavy director buying on the day of last trading update is coming to fruition,||manrobert|
|Bingo! Looks like someone got lucky picking up over 3% off Aviva last week. Wonder if they had a hunch about today's budget news. Surely not?||typo56|
|lets hope the budget news moves these up a bit more||123ct|
|This is a long term hold for me, but with the share doing nothing for 12 months, I am trying to guess why the sudden move at 1pm today with a share sale/purchase of 12M shares and the big uplift in price. Could this be the move that has been talked about for years to take this firm private. If anyone is reading this board and has any explanation please let me know.||123ct|
|Nice rise today, results not due until August I believe so can any one throw ideas on why as delighted to be up on this stock but have no reason why it moved so much today, couldn't see anything spectacular on level 2||123ct|
|Bought a few here end of May when Investec reiterated a buy with a lower target of 200p share price at the time was 150p. Strong fundamentals, the forecasts 2014 & 2015 look OK to me and they have restructured the business somewhat lately. Views anyone?||painter|
|Revenues Grow At Rank
RANK GROUP GROWS LIKE-FOR-LIKE REVENUES
LONDON (SHARECAST) - Bingo halls and casinos operator Rank said revenue growth in the second half of the year has been driven by strong trading in Mecca's digital channel and in its Grosvenor Casinos business.
In the 15 weeks to October 14th, revenue was up 4% on a year earlier, or 5% on a like-for-like basis.
Grosvenor Casinos achieved year-on-year revenue growth of 8%, while Mecca saw 2% like-for-like (LFL) revenue growth of 2% and actual revenue growth of 1%.
The growth at Grosvenor Casinos was achieved despite customer visits at its venues falling 5% on a LFL basis. Happily for Rank, spend per visit shot up 13% on a LFL basis, or 7% on an actual basis.
The group was particularly encouraged by the 72% increase in digital revenue at Grosvenor, which put the 7% growth on the venues side in the shade. However, management sportingly pointed out that digital accounts for less than 3% of Grosvenor Casinos' revenue.
Mecca venues also saw fewer customer visits; these were down 3% year-on-year, or down 2% on a LFL basis. Spend per visit was up 3%.
Mecca venues revenue was down 1% year-on-year but level on a LFL basis, while digital revenue grew 11%.
BLUE SQUARE BET & TOP RANK ESPANA
Blue Square Bet, the online bookmaking and gaming arm, saw revenues rise 19% year-on-year but the Spanish bingo business, Top Rank Espana, continues to be a problem with revenues down 9% on a year earlier. Customer visits in Spain were down 5%, as was spend per visit.
"While the outlook for the UK consumer is expected to remain challenging, Rank has maintained its strong financial position, possesses market-leading brands with multi-channel distribution and has a clear strategy for sustained long-term growth," the statement concluded.
