Shipping services group Clarkson said underlying pretax profit was £25.1m in the year to end-DEcember (2012: £20m), 26% higher than the prior year. This was ahead of expectations, reflecting improved trading conditions in the fourth quarter, with activity levels across the group during December being particularly strong. Underlying earnings per share were 98.0p (2012: 74.8p) and basic earnings per share, after the exceptional item and acquisition costs were 82.2p (2012: 85.2p). Once again, for the eleventh consecutive year, Clarksons intends to raise the dividend paid to shareholders. The board is recommending a final dividend of 37p (2012: 33p). The interim dividend was 19p (2012: 18p), giving a total dividend for the year of 56p (2012: 51p). Andi Case, CEO, commented: "Despite a turbulent market backdrop, Clarksons has been consistently profitable and cash generative. This has enabled us to continue to invest in the business during these challenging times, thus ensuring that we are positioned for growth as activity in our markets resumes. "In 2013 we grew head count to more than 1,000 people and our office network to 42 locations. One area of particular focus in 2013 was to continue the progress within Clarkson Capital Markets, where, following significant increases in revenue and cost rationalisation, the second six months showed a profit and the platform is now proving the strategy for combining financing with transactional execution. "Our strong balance sheet has enabled us to continue to make selective acquisitions where appropriate to further strengthen our product breadth and we will continue to look to invest organically and acquisitively where appropriate. "We remain focused on shareholder returns and are delighted to have increased dividends each year for the past 11 years."

Broker forecasts are for about 123p earnings in 2014 , giving a forward ex-cash p/e of 14.5. Does anyone have a brokers note for this company.

Was lucky enough to buy a few of these just before the trading update and don't see them back at £20 again. 2014 should be the first year when shipping tonnage supply and demand come back roughly into kilter since the crisis hit in 2008 so a shipping share an essential for this year in my view. Not a lot available on the LSE and this is my pick. So far so good!

Expects to beat full-year forecasts - Particularly strong December trading - Upbeat despite challenging global shipping rates Ship broker Clarkson said it expects its full year results to come in ahead of market expectations after particularly strong trading over December. "The global shipping markets continue to be challenging although the recent improvement in rates in some of our markets is encouraging. Against this background we remain confident that our proven strategy, underpinned by our robust balance sheet, positions the group well as we enter the new financial year," it said in a company update. Clarkson said it has continued to deliver a positive trading performance against a challenging market backdrop. Activity levels across the group during December were boosted by an exceptionally strong performance at its Sale and Purchase business.

I wonder whether news leaked the CKN was to make an announcement. This would be so rare that it might be assumed to be a profit warning.

Here's Questor on BMS http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/markets/questor/10416065/Questor-share-tip-Braemar-sees-strong-second-half.html The same factors affect CKN which makes the fall in price the more surprising.Can anyone explain it?
