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.
timbo003: Sell recommendation in today's IC ####################################################################### Shanks pricey for its prospects Shanks Group PLC Processing waste is an ultra-competitive way of making a corporate living, which makes the bounce in Shanks's share price look suspect.....cont
erogenous jones: cyfran101 - sks will always do well as people throw stuff away. As consumers were not be spending much money in 2008 through to 2010 so the share price languished. At some point, recovery will turn to recovered and that might mark the point where growth curve is likely to flatten. But, hey, I am just an amateur at these things.
