Potentially a TA play around here, but it goes ex-div for 12.5p on 26/1. I'd want the share price to be at least 575 by then.

It would be if it got there... I'm concerned regarding the recent fall on volume, and lack of volume for the breakout of 565. ADX gave a healthy reading of 25+ when it broke out, so a confirmed break in that respect, just no volume. Ex-div for 12.5p 26/1 complicates it a little. I'd want the share price to be 580 by then ideally. BTW - I now say 555, cos it's a falling support line from late June weekly candle thru lower candle late July.

Just checked on the FT site, and there was talk that Nomura may be selling a block of 14 million shares on behalf of a client.

Hello FB, no I sold in December, that is a fair drop in the context of the overall market strenght. Commodity price inflation concerns perhaps?. Only holding Vitec(VTC) currently, trading update for VTC in mid January usually, and betting this will suprise on the upside. Also like the new CEO at Vitec, Divisional MD at Weir previously.

EI - np, my ten penneth. Healthy consolidation since May 10. The session on 24/10 suggests the magnitude/force of the move could give more upside. The 26 week EMA is starting to turn up, and weekly MACD histogram is about to go positive. 20 period ADX looks good too having been quiet for 3 months - albeit, any true breakout would be confirmed by a reading of at least 25 ideally 30. The only concern is that the distribution trend since this consolidation period started hasn't been broken yet. If it does, I'd expect the share price to be nearer 570. I'd have 535 as short term support, 26 week EMA as medium term support, and 500 as long term support. To the upside, 570 obviously, with decent volume preferably. The 3% rule for 3 consecutive trading closes would be nice. Thanks for bringing to my attn. Will watch with interest. GL

mixed messages, its all hype i feel Compass cautioned, however, that it continued "to see little evidence of real employment growth in our major markets and we are therefore expecting little immediate improvement in like-for-like revenues". http://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/Compass-upbeat-sales-recover-ftimes-632952422.html?x=0&.v=1

LONDON (ShareCast) - Charles Stanley expects Compass Group (CMPGF.PK - news) to reinvest in growth and deliver steady margin expansion as it is well placed for significant structural growth opportunities in both food and support services around the world. The contract caterer reported a 4.7% increase in revenue to £14.5bn (in constant currency) as the preliminary results showed its confident outlook, reflected in the increase of its dividend by a third to 17.5p. Pre-tax profit increased by 17.6% to £922m. The broker notes that with significant cash flows generated through the year, net debt fell to £621m by the end of the period, even after its acquisition spend. Organic revenue growth improved from 0.4% in the first half to 3.2% for the year end. Meanwhile margins have improved consistently over the past four years, and analyst Tony Shepard expects this to continue in 2011 and 2012. The broker remains hopeful that Compass (LSE: CPG.L - news) can "reinvest its efficiencies" and "continue to generate new business wins" in the current financial year and maintains its 'buy' recommendation.

Scare I called it as I saw it this morning, it was a day trade for me. If you think it's expensive, then fair enough, that is your view. Missed this one, or had already sold?, I'm guessing.

is this mischief on this thread? the numbers are surely in line. this appears to be hype over the dividend . but the yield is only 3% and 14X looks expensive in this market
