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.

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.

At its present level it is tempting to take a profit. I don't know quite why it is so strong atm but could be connected with forex considerations due to its foreign currency income stream. A UK target inflation rate of ~2% means the country is forever attempting to walk up a currency down escalator with that target speed. The budget will merely determine whether the escalator speeds up or not - the expectation before a looming election being that it may speed up dramatically as the chancellor fails to grasp any nettles. (Analogy to the pound plummetting.) The advantage of sundry foreign incomes is that they bypass the UK escalator but are on different ones without the UK's particular virile combination of adverse factors accelerating them. Hence, CPG is reckoned as a (relatively) safe haven and will have the advantage of apparently increased profit in translation from dollars etc. PS: I now recall that CPG has closed its defined benefit pension scheme to further accruals. This must be viewed as a positive measure, partly in cost (it will continue with contributions to a different employee scheme), but more particularly in relation to risk control.

So... a week later and you haven't sold. Just as well really.... btw, I think the only real effect the budget will have is people selling beforehand (ie over the last week or two) in an effort to minimise CGT liability. Although the govt have said that CGT will not change, if I remember correctly

Charles Stanley's 10 best share ideas for 2010 http://www.citywire.co.uk/partners/redirector.aspx?contentid=382476&deliverytargetcode=Personal__News__Money_Property_and_Tax&re=8455&ea=78735 Compass Group- Net debt was reduced last year despite losses on currency and acquisition spend. Margins rose on cost-cutting measures and 'we expect further margin increases and once volumes improve it should provide further operational leverage to profitability. Ongoing structural growth in food service outsourcing 'could add 5% revenue growth in 2011.'

http://www.citywire.co.uk/personal/-/news/money-property-and-tax/content.aspx?ID=378033&re=8245&ea=78735&ViewFull=True Legal & General Growth manager Robert Churchlow, who is Citywire A-rated, believes it is rare to find quality growth stories that are not highly rated by the market. 'We look for companies offering genuine growth, but where the market is less convinced by their prospects,' Churchlow said. He therefore includes some turnaround situations within his Garp stock picks, including catering contractor Compass Group. 'In addition to top-line growth, margin improvement has come from the new management team, which is running the company better. The stock market has not fully appreciated what is going on with the company,' he said.

http://www.citywire.co.uk/personal/-/news/markets-companies-and-funds/content.aspx?ID=375907&re=8075&ea=78735&ViewFull=True Four shares to capitalise on a strengthening dollar Compass: The catering company generates around 40% of 2009 revenue from the US and Carr calculates a 5% rise in the value of the dollar would have added £13million to operating profit or 2.3% to EPS. The stock also benefits from potential margin upside, cyclical recovery potential, structural growth in outsourcing and a strong free cash flow which is not yet reflected in the shares, Morgan Stanley analysts believe.
