£4 a share - that has made me smile. Lucky if this holds above £3 IMV.

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.

http://www.fool.co.uk/news/investing/investing-strategy/2009/07/15/where-youll-find-todays-best-value-stocks.aspx?source=ufwflwlnk0000001 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.

All quiet here, the drop from the recent highs with the fall in the strength of the pound make this look like a buy. Trying to determine a good buy price...any thoughts out there.

The cleverer person might well point out that Compass has a rather dodgy debt-fuelled past, the Independent now sees very few reasons not to buy the shares. The group says it is expecting a strong second half and the paper said it would tend to agree with the experts at Killik & Co who argue that: "Compass is the market leader in an industry with significant growth potential and we believe the shares should be a core holding in an equity portfolio." Buy.

DM Totally agree. Last trading update was very bullish and I am expecting 360p plus post results. Have bought in this morning but should have done so a couple of days ago having had this on monitor for the last few weeks. Further improvement in FTSE and the expected good figures could surprise on the upside. Regards

Very quiet here, the resent drop seems to be a shift from safe harbours to greater risk (opportunity) shares. Looks to be over done given the interims out in a week and a concensus broker target price of 3.78. Looks to be a comfortable 10% in the next month at 320sp or below...any thoughts?

Expect this to re-test highs at 360 and probably to exceed them. Very good results in downturn, and structured in many ways upon resilient public sector organisations. Should prove a sound business model.

PADHERF and others Having done a fair bit of reading over the weekend I came to the conclusion that with a trading update due in a few days time, I might just take a chance that it will be positive and, therefore, added CPG to my monitor this morning. On the day's performance, so far, I am beginning to think I may well have gotten things slightly wrong. On the other hand I may just be lucky in getting them a lot cheaper than I expected. I would be grateful for any information you could pass on, either in the form of your own recent assessments or, particularly if you know of any reason for today's sudden fall and, what you envisage to be the more likely outcome of the update. TIA Regards PF
