shanklin: The HVN share price would need to treble to be on a similar rating to STHR and HVN are still growing profits. Certainly looking forward to a jobs market recovery.

bullinachinashop3: SThree Our view: Buy Share price: 184p (-2.5p) If there is one market we really do not fancy at the moment, it is recruitment. With unemployment continuing its inexorable march upward, why would you want to buy shares in an industry that makes its money from a rapidly shrinking market? The short answer is that you would not. Unless, you are considering SThree, the specialist IT recruiter, that is. Yes, the group reported tepid first-half profit numbers yesterday, adding that permanent placements were down 34 per cent in the first six months of the year. The stock dutifully fell 1.3 per cent. But we would be buyers. The group is in the enviable position of filling specialist jobs that have sent the average permanent placement fee up by 17.3 per cent on the same period last year. That would not in itself be enough were it not for the fact that SThree has done well in terms of cash, which at £43.9m has underpinned the dividend yield of 6.4 per cent. The analysts at KBC argue that the stock will reach 220p, saying: "Our target price is based on a multiple of eight times a forecast cycle-average earnings of 27.5p." We would stress our distaste for anything in the recruitment sector, but there is an exception to every rule and we would recommend SThree. Buy.

pbracken: From today's Inependent: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/sharewatch/the-investment-column-wolfson-powers-on-but-it-may-be-heavily-exposed-to-downturn-778093.html SThree Our view: Buy Share price : 200.75p (+1.5p) Shares in the recruitment firm SThree have fallen 60 per cent since July. The whole sector has been badly mugged. The worry was that recruitment work would dry up as employers stopped hiring because of the credit crunch. The market got it wrong. SThree continued to prosper. It also sees no sign of a slowdown this year. Profits for 2007 rose by a quarter to £50m. Fee income grew to £522m, while the dividend payout was up 29 per cent – not the action of a company in distress. There was an easing of demand for jobs in the credit and risk market, which should come as no surprise, but this represented a small part of the total business. The bulk of jobs are filled in the information and communications technology area, where pay is around £45,000-££50,000. So SThree, which trades under 12 different brand names, such as Computer Futures and Huxley, is comfortably placed in the middle of the market. The number of people placed in permanent jobs rose 30 per cent, with fees up nearly 10 per cent. Temporary work, which tends to be more resilient when the economy is sliding into recession and firms are reluctant to hire full-time employees, went up by 20 per cent, with a similar rise in commission. Overseas work now accounts for a third of the total. Offices were opened in Amsterdam, Brussels and Rotterdam, and a toehold established in Hong Kong. There are now 52 branches in 10 countries. The company has begun filling other jobs in accountancy, banking, engineering, and pharmaceuticals. All indications during the first two months of the current year – such as the number of people attending interviews – supports its view that this year will be strong. The shares sell on just over six times forecast earnings for 2008. Buy.

midasx: Yes things are really tough in the sector!! over 50% share price fall ??????? Michael Page Interna Michael Page Q4 gross profit up 37.6 pct, confident of future prospects UPDATE (updates with further UK trading detail, employee figures) LONDON (Thomson Financial) - Michael Page International PLC today posted a 37.6 pct increase in fourth-quarter gross profit on strong demand for candidates and said although it is mindful of economic uncertainty, it is confident of future prospects. Fourth-quarter gross profit rose to 128.2 mln stg while full-year gross profit increased 37.1 pct to 478.1 mln. Chief executive Steve Ingham said: "These results are testament to our organic growth strategy of increasing the diversification of our business both geographically and by discipline." Michael Page's UK business has experienced a moderate easing with fourth-quarter gross profit increasing 15.6 pct, while previous three quarters saw growth of about 20 pct. The company said in a statement that during the fourth quarter, save for some weakness in specific banking sectors, the UK business continued to experience good levels of activity across all other disciplines and industry sectors. Michael Page shares have suffered on economic uncertainty and have lost more than 7 pct of their value since the start of January as the macro economic picture is looking increasingly less certain with talk of recession in the US and a sharp slowdown in the UK, possibly having a negative impact on permanent placements. But analysts previously said that Michael Page's expansion in territories and disciplines offers an element of defensiveness. CEO Ingham stressed that 61 pct of the company's 2007 gross profit has been generated outside the UK during the period. Fourth-quarter gross profit in Europe, Middle East and Africa -- its largest region representing 41 pct of group gross profit -- rose 55.9 pct over last year's figure. In Asia Pacific, fourth-quarter gross profit rose 30.6 pct. Michael Page said its Asian business has experienced some weaknesses in specific banking sectors but still recorded fourth-quarter gross profit rise of 26 pct. Michael Page's Americas business saw a rise of 81.6 pct in fourth-quarter gross profit. The international recruitment company, which operates out of 149 offices in 25 countries, said that it had increased its fourth-quarter headcount by 5.8 pct or 275, for the first time exceeding 5,000 employees. The company said that it has repurchased and held in trust a further 3.5 mln shares at a cost of 14.9 mln stg during the fourth quarter. In the year, Michael Page repurchased and cancelled or held in trust a total of 15.1 mln shares at a cost of 74.4 mln. Michael Page shares closed Monday at 248 pence, valuing the company at 803 mln stg. By Anita Likus: anita.likus@thomson.com aml/jlc/aml/jag COPYRIGHT Copyright Thomson Financial News Limited 2007.

batman9: With the share price now 195p Company expanding £40m debt paid as of 30 Nov Starting a share buy back This was published: 24 July 2007 The Independent on Sunday Edited by Andrew Dewson SThree Our view: Buy Current price: 488.75p Despite being perhaps the least well known name in recruitment among the mid caps, SThree has kept up the pace with higher profile rivals Robert Walters and Michael Page. Its shares have risen by more than 125 per cent since listing in late 2005 and if yesterday's interim results are anything to go by there looks to be more upside left. Although the company has invested heavily in the last 12 months on headcount, information technology systems and new offices, first half pre-tax profits still rose by an impressive 32 per cent to £19.2m, and would have been 54 per cent better had it not been for the investment programme. SThree provides staff across a wide range of sectors, providing temporary and permanent placements in computing, engineering, telecoms, human resources and pharmaceuticals, even if 80 per cent of its business is still in IT. It operates out of 48 offices in seven countries and there is scope for more expansion in emerging and developed economies. New offices were opened in Rotterdam and Brussels in the first half and Hong Kong and Dubai will open in the second half. SThree has moved away from more cyclical temporary recruitment and now makes exactly 50 per cent of its profits from permanent placements. Trading on under 15 times forecast 2008 earnings, SThree is on a discount to its two main UK peers and the recruitment industry looks to be in excellent health. Yesterday's bout of profit taking represents a good buying opportunity.

hornets: good trading statement which contains the following, these should fly today : "The recent weakness in the Group's share price does not in the Board's view reflect the underlying quality of SThree's business, particularly given the Group's increasing exposure to markets with strong structural growth characteristics."

sandbank: It would be really good to hear from some holders of STHR on this thread. I suppose today's fall is profit taking after a very strong week. ...and I notice that the share price was recovering at close of play - which is another good sign
