The more you dig, the weighter the evidence against technical analysis gets. An October 2009 study by New Zealand's Massey University tested more than 5,000 technical analysis strategies in 49 different countries. The result? Not one strategy generated returns that aren't predicted by chance. Let me repeat that. Not one. http://www.fool.co.uk/news/investing/2010/06/10/technical-analysis-is-stupid.aspx?source=ufwflwlnk0000001 Coincidentally, published today.

520 initial and will see how it develops. 593 is the highest it reached Feb 2001, that would be my exit.

Catering firm Compass Group has snapped up a North American provider of soft support services operating in the education and business and industry sectors. The company is paying $65m (£45m) in cash for Southeast Service Corporation (SSC), a company which last year had revenue of $153m (£106m).

this stock has had a good run since below 200 in 2005. it is now at the highs of 2001 and thats good by any standards. not sure if 650 is justifiable. good luck

My opinion.... a slow, steady rise from here towards 650. After years of company and share price underachievement (I know as I have been a shareholder for 7 or 8 years waiting to get my original puurchase price back!!), anyway, it now looks as if circs are a bit more favourable. Don't see much growth in ITV now though.... the channel is getting worse although the appt of Chiles was a good move (or rather a very bad one for the BBC)... I hope he doesn't join the list of losers at ITV such as Bob Wilson and him who fancied himself... y'know... whatshisname?

I bought at 338p should I take the profit and run or hang in there to see if the price gets back up to the 560 mark? Other shares may be more favourable ie ITV - BARCLAYS etc

Not much going on really but I did find this on Yahoo from 17/5 :- Buy at 557p (this week 550p) advises Nomura. Recent half year results from this contract catering and support services group provided evidence of ongoing operating momentum, highlights the broker. Further efficiency gains underwrite growth, whilst cyclical economic recovery and potential new business wins should provide additional growth. Furthermore, the balance sheet is in a position to provide for either or bolt-on acquisitions and equity share buy-backs/increased dividends. In conclusion, a buy recommendation has been reiterated, with a price target of 690p being formulated.

why is there no posts on this tread. Am I the only holder (other than the big boys) in this share?

very good trading statement... I would appreciate any brokers notes that can be posted (even though I could probably write them myself... their guess is as good as mine!) but an ATH in these markets must be a good omen.

Compass Group releases its pre-close trading update on the last day of the month and the market will be looking to see whether the company's organic growth has made the transition from not declining so sharply to actually improving on a year on year comparative basis. The group said in February that organic revenue improved from a decline of approximately 3% in the fourth quarter of 2009, to a decline of 1.7% in the first quarter of this year, with all four of its geographic regions ahead quarter on quarter.
