Short CLDN @ 6.45 Its biggest holdings RAT & CBG have tanked in last few days RAT report tommorow and is expected to p/w. Chart speaks for itself. Spread is not friendly. .

Each day I consider covering and each day it drops on virtually no volume. Looking for 640 (very) short term, the market makers clearly do not want any stock, the jostling to get out of the way of sales is great fun to watch!

See RNS today, the company are desperate to support the price. In the last report the chairman says "we do not envisage being able to buy in many more shares" and yet they buy 305 000 today??????

Yesterday alone the falls in Close Bros (down 52.5p) and Friends Ivory and Sime (down 16p) accounted for a drop in Calledonia's investments of around £15m. The question is, will Caledonia's share price reflect the fall in value?

Already Short from 800p. It looks ripe for a fall at least to the Sept low. We need some selling at 760p. The 20 dma looks a good one to follow on the way down

I have just had a brief flick through the annual report to end 03/02, it is worth a read if only for entertainment alone. I love phrases like "The profit & Loss... shows significantly lower numbers...they are not the principal financial yard stick by which we seek to measure ourselves" If it is then the value of their investments "by which they seek to measure themselves" they are in trouble, on the listed investments alone those values have diminshed by at least £40m since the end of March! They have actually increased their holding in RAT although they don't disclose by how much, that along with their 18.6% holding in Close Bros have performed poorly. They are an illiquid stock and the share price therefore may not react as it should (imho) but it will surely retest last September's low.

alexx - Caledonia owns 12% of RAT and 6% of FIS. Also has holdings in other funds Amerindo, Polar Tech, Br.Empire Secs(19%), and others. Overall a strange portfolio - includes 49% of Bristow Helicopters, and subsidiaries The Sloane Club (100%), Sterling Industries (100%), Edinburgh Crystal (93%). Also holdings in Close Bros (19%). Radio Investments (39%). Sun Intl Hotels/Casinos (21%). All listed within the link above and mostly described as poorly! I'll leave it to someone with patience to list them all in scale :o)

I guess holders who thought "Oh dear" when they saw the 28/5 results were hoping nobody else would notice until after the dividend qualification date next week. Sorry guys! Anyway, the share price has already declined since then by more than the divi is worth - so nothing gained by holding..

While looking at which other fund managers hold an interest in Rathbones, I see Caledonia Investments do. They also own a chunk of FIS which has done them some harm. These (negative) extracts are from their 28/05 results statement. "..Caledonia Investments PLC said it has appointed Tim Ingram, until recently a main board director of Abbey National PLC, as the company's new chief executive with effect from June 10...". "...the group reported a drop in profit before tax to 8.2 mln stg from 55.7 mln a year earlier. It incurred a trading loss for the year of 1.3 mln stg, compared with a profit of 9.7 mln. Turnover was down at 114.1 mln stg from 135.2 mln a year earlier...." "...The profit and loss account shows significantly lower numbers than in the previous year, although it is not the principal financial yardstick by which Caledonia seeks to measure itself. Earnings per share decreased from 53.2 pence to 3.8 pence and adjusted earnings per share moved from 49.6 pence to 18.6 pence. Results from subsidiaries, in difficult economic circumstances, fell by £7.5m to £2.2m before a £3.5m write-off of goodwill relating to Sterling Industries. An overall addition of £8.5m in interest payable included £4m relating to Caledonia's associates. Furthermore Caledonia's share of results from associate companies fell by £14m due largely to the absence of the exceptional market-making profits previously earned by Close Brothers..." Profit before taxation for the year to 31 March 2002 totalled £8.2m, compared with £55.7m reported last year..." "...Total operating profit of £26.1m for the year to 31 March 2002 decreased by 51% compared with last year's figure of £53.5m. A number of factors contributed to a decrease in trading results from a £9.7m profit last year to a £1.3m loss this year. Sterling Industries reported a loss of £0.4m, compared with a profit of £1.5m last year and, in addition, £3.5m of capitalised goodwill was written off. Amber recorded profits of £1.6m, down £0.4m from last year, Edinburgh Crystal reported a loss of £0.8m compared with £0.6m last year and The Sloane Club dipped from £2.1m last year to £1.7m..." My extracts above are all negative ones (no surprise there then). For a possibly fairer view see the full report at http://www.advfn.com/cmn/news/newsmona.php?article=2830984&epic=CLDN Quotes beyond 2 July allow for a 17.2p divi. (xd reportedly 3 July) I opened a small downbet this morning.
