lukmanpatel: Another troll by the username lsehotdealz haha, share price is stagnant and there’s talks of fundraise at 10p on that board lol desperation has lead to going round posting on different board to prevent share price from dropping, usually ud stay quiet and average down and accumulate if you see huge potential lmaoo he’s spamming all the boards
deanforester: The bit about the C-shares is Round Objects. There is no 10% deducted, instead a Tax Credit of 1/9th comes with the 56p dividend paid from them. This is purely nominal and satisfies any liability to income tax of a basic rate tax payer. It cannot be reclaimed, and higher rate taxpayers will be able to use that Tax Credit to offset part of their tax liability. The whole point of the consolidation is to avoid a drop in the share price. You may have noticed that the share price of Compass has been rising, see top right. That means that the calculations made when they announced the Return of Capital/Special Dividend are now out of date. The share price may well rise after consolidation.
alphahunter: Short opened at 890p this am, IMS in line with expectations, share price YTD 25%, expected eps growth 10%, PEG 1.8. Cheaper outsourcers elsewhere. Valuation call, would be looking for a 5%+ retracement.
investinggarden: Compass investors see share price go north
jas_ron: time to buy some of these after today's sharp fall - thought results looked ok and charles stanley has a 400p target. fall seems rather overdone today..... The share price of caterer Compass Group was looking decidedly soggy Thursday morning after a disappointing interim management statement but broker Charles Stanley reckons the share price fall makes the case for purchasing the shares even more compelling. "The share price has reacted adversely to the Q3 update but we believe that the only disappointment with the update is that we will not be upgrading our profit forecasts," Charles Stanley analyst Tony Shepard said. Charles Stanley believes the current share price does not reflect the improvement in margins the group has achieved over the past three years, and the improved cash generation. "In terms of the outlook for 2010, the economic headwinds will remain challenging so revenue growth will be flat but the group is optimistic of driving further margin improvements across the business," the broker notes. Charles Stanley has a price target of 400p for the stock.
eipgam: Growth Shares At Value Prices It could be argued that the average value investor should look beyond the usual value universe to seek out the best bargains in today's market. It's relatively unusual to see companies that have the characteristics of both value and growth stocks. For example, I look at these larger companies with relatively low P/E ratios as well as forecast earnings growth: Company Recent Share Price 2009 Forecast P/E 2009 Forecast Growth Rate G4S (LSE: GFS) 212p 11 30% Compass Group (LSE: CPG) 336p 12 36% Sainsbury (LSE: SBRY) 311p 14 9% Sage Group (LSE: SGE) 175p 11 27% Homeserve (LSE: HSV) 1,415p 13 32% De La Rue (LSE: DLAR) 857p 12 27% As you can see, companies that are forecasting strong growth aren't always expensive. Right now, in fact, many such shares are trading at their cheapest levels in years -- possibly because their growth prospects past 2009 are less favourable.
