For a share which has performed amazingly well against the present market background, there is a surprising lack of interest in this thread... ...Which is a pity as I have a question requiring help from a knowledgeable individual and this is where I hoped to find one! Can anyone point me to a reference giving the initial split values to be ascribed to the two shares, GAA and CPG resulting from the demerger of Granada-Compass? I need this to apportion cost and thought it should be easy but have failed to find an answer. Most grateful for any help. I will ask also on the heavily subscribed ITV thread but suspect that could be a case of quantity dominating over quality.

A well managed business gradually making progress. Long term tuck away

Max - lol It usually pays to take the Grauniad with a dose of malt. Anyway, we now know the figure is £400m.

guardian says - "its balance sheet review should release around £300bn to be returned to shareholders via a buy-back." http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2008/may/11/marketforces.wolseley if my math is right, that would be £162 a share!!!

Not sure,but it was'nt so long ago.If investors get spooked by the higher prices for foodstuffs,which will continue this year until we know the success of harvests in 2008,then there will be a sell off of CPG. However,we seem to be trading in a range and I would suggest selling if the averages turn down and then I would buy in at recent lows. So far,no bad news from this group,who appear to have got their house in order and pay a reasonable dividend.I have held shares since 2001 and am out of pocket,but I am very pleased with the recent resilience in the share price ..even if it is trading sideways!And,of course it is well traded.Better than sitting on something for days,with no apparent trades. I am surprised at how many companies such as this are not supported on these boards.The charts are a reliable counter to where CPG is going.As you suggest Cobweb,if we fail to crack 350p for a third time we might as well sell up and buy lower.It all depends on the attitude of investors this week.Which will be the deciding week with all the results coming from America and the markets reaction to the latest "help" for banks in the UK.

Hi Amla, thanks for the post. When did Credit Suisse make its target ? Any other you know about ? The share price is trying for the 3rd time to break 348/9 since lat Oct 07 - hopefully 3rd time lucky or they usually go south.

Credit Suisse had a 415p target on this. CPG referred to as "a recovery story"...so,I would at least hope for the 380p reached previously.Charts look good for a further rise and last year,the share price did'nt crash in May. Company seems to be able to pass on higher food prices to its customers.Plus,contract customers have to pay higher prices as they have to feed their employees/soldiers/students etc. Here's hoping DYOR.

Goodness knows what wil happen tomorrow, I would have expected a rise after the predicted pull back today, however Uncle Sam has really tanked. PRetty fed up of this market.

Great day, chart looks well set up to go alot higher, expect to challenge the high around 375-380 in the longer term. Technically we may get a pull back to 340 or a little lower before a run to next resistance level of 356. With some luck there'll be no pull back, but usually there is. So far going to plan, all will be out the window if US has issues, but it's held up well so far. Fingers crossed.

Fantastic day, up 7.5p. With improved close in US from where they were should be good for FTSE tomorrow. A close above 346-348 is what is needed.

yewtrees, very good day given the FTSE performance...good sign for the future. A strong market rallycould set share price on its way.

Market 1 - CPG nil, can't beat the market, that said the share price fell to the up trend line, on low volume - so all hope is not lost.

Uptrend still intact with higher lows, good if close tomorrow is above 340, i ideal if above 343 - we'll see.

How long can CPG cope with rocketing food inflation - has to hit margins sometime. I believe Wheat rose something crazy like 35% yesterday.
