Plastic bags can be re-used, so there's the opportunity to encourage customers to do so, not the same for plastic containers for sauces and other foodstuffs. Haven't seen the article but maybe it is plastic water and other drinks bottles that are the potential 'target' as they are more of a litter problem. I can't see why there would be a move to target plastic containers for foods, pills etc made by RPC over alternatives such as glass or metal. As domestic waste these containers are all re-cycled now anyway so surely it would be neutral.
RPC doesn't often hit the headlines but has been an excellent share.|
|I can't see people carrying the extra weight of glass, and the health and safety issues when broken. But then again, why banning micro thin plastic bags that should be biodegradable anyway is beyond me.|
|This share has been great for me and the combination of taking up all Rights Issues and the increasing share price has resulted in it being considerably 'overweight' (if I believed in such a thing) in my portfolio. All was sweetness and light until this morning when I saw a piece on the news extolling the success of the plastic bag 'tax' in reducing the use of those but moving onto plastic bottles and suggesting that they were next for the chop. Is this a move towards a reduction in the use of plastic containers more generally? May it become a problem for RPC? Comments welcome!|
|Indeed, I am accumulating today based on the 29/09 Pre-close Trading Update.|
|Still climbing that stairway to heaven.|
|It's not like DB are the most reliable source of conviction these days but a positive note nonetheless.|

|My philosophy is to buy/hold on a positive story as RPC undoubtedly is.
Holding up well in a falling market.
Chasing stocks that have fallen heavily at such times is pure gambling.|

|Solid update as always|
|RPC Group said revenues in H1 are projected to be significantly ahead of the same period last year, benefiting from the contribution of acquisitions and continued organic growth.
The adjusted operating profit for the first half is also anticipated to be significantly ahead of last year due to organic growth, realisation of synergies, the part reversal of last year's polymer price headwind and a foreign exchange translation benefit.
The organisational integration of GCS has been completed and its overall trading performance is ahead of previous expectations.
The acquisition of British Polythene Industries ("BPI") was completed in August and has been integrated into RPC as a sixth stand-alone division. Initial trading has been encouraging.
The overall acquisition related cost synergies (steady state €80m related to Promens / GCS and £10m for BPI) are currently being reviewed to assess potential further upside.
The Group's financial position remains strong, with good cash flow development in the first half and it has significant headroom under its debt facilities|

|Indeed; will accumulate on any weakness.|
|Top performer for me. You just buy quality and hold it.|
|Thanks for that mfh.
The continued weakness of sterling must be very helpful.
They said this in June,
The weakening of sterling enhances the competitiveness of the UK operations due to the higher cost of imports from mainland Europe, and the Group's position as a modest net exporter from the UK may incrementally benefit its performance.|
|I'm a very happy holder too!
RPC is working wonders in my pension pot. :-)))|
