a0148009: Agree - the markets are finding it tough to push higher and any companies announcing profit warnings are taking more than the usual hammering. Share price may be nudged higher when approval and clearance quoted below have been completed. "The Merger remains subject to Shanks shareholder approval and anti-trust clearance. Further updates will be provided in due course." If you have not seen the DT article on the Euro in Tuesday's front page you may find this interesting. AO
a0148009: Cost savings, growth and currency translation should underpin current share price with potential to break out above 110p resistance level. AO
ed 123: Good comment, Erogenous Jones. :-) 40 years! You must have started as a boy! I have held Shanks for a while and, yes, it has disappointed me. I think the management have done ok; the problem's the weakness of their markets. Maybe I'm a mug for a good story but I took comfort from the final paragraph of the recent update, Looking forward, assuming current market conditions, the Board expects that the successful increase in capacity commissioned in the current year, together with further margin improvement and cost management initiatives, will position the Group to deliver strong growth. From where we are now, investment decision? Atm, I'm for holding and hoping the Eurozone stimulus works, and the oil and gas sector improves. Yes, there is opportunity cost but there's a lot of danger out there. In Shanks' favour it has some long term guaranteed contracts, it has been investing for future returns and (due to environmental protection legislation) serves a growth sector. Finally, there is the comfort of a safe-ish 4.8% dividend yield with the share price at 72p. Maybe I need another two years of disappointment to break my spirit! ;-O
ed 123: Do you really think Shanks' institutional shareholders are short-term punter types? I'd expect them to hold on for an eventual sustained industrial recovery in Benelux. If/when that happens, Shanks should thrive. If any of Shanks institutional shareholders are facing redemption pressure, then they may have to sell but otherwise, why would they sell now at 70p-ish when they could have had 100p-ish a short while ago? It would not be clever management of their clients' funds to wait for a fall in the share price and then sell. Anyway, time will tell.
ed 123: Fair comment, lefrene. If there's any comfort for holders from the falling share price, it's that the lower it goes the more attractive it becomes to a potential acquirer. The sector has seen consolidation.
ed 123: Share price up another 3% today on a strong volume (2.5 million shares, or 4 x average volume). I don't know what's behind it but I'm not complaining. Same again tomorrow, please!

erogenous jones: I would always prefer rapid progress! If I am not mistaken, cash position is showing a slight improvement over the last few years, which, as economic recovery in Europe strengthens, might be important to take advantage of opportunity. Dividend yield is pretty average at just over 3% - provided that this is maintained, I would be content with a 9% share price growth over the year. Since Christmas, the growth is a little over 1% (I am not a trader) plus dividends.
ivyhuang: Half bottle of water: 1. slow recovery in Netherlands, delayed about six months; 2. Diversity especially the non-traditional waste treatment improving; 3. Position yourself before the full recovery of the market and share price;
erogenous jones: Hmmmm.......not exactly translating into a higher share price, is it Ivyhuang? At least the dividend is something to look forward to in the next couple of weeks.
