Two known negatives,dollar earnings and pension deficit seem to me to be already reflected in the current price of 257p. Two recent directors purchases of 4000 shares each at approx 250p were encouraging.

I am a long term holder of CRDA. They are in a highly specialised field and are a very sound company. I think fair value is around 325 and divi is safe. All IMHO and DYOR.

General business upturn, plus specialist nature of crda suggest a rerating this year? opportunities for takeover should be coming onto radar screens this year, but weakness of dollar could limit this to European groups, such as Henkel. So... Any views on 'fair value' in the event of a takeover? How safe is the dividend? Welcome views before I take the plunge!

Interim results shortly. The likes of Henkel and Givaudan could well take a closer look at them........ My first buy was 239 and have been adding on the way up. Much more to come, IMHO

STB - Yes, I am, currently long. Nothing to add to the two pieces of info you already have.

Anyone following this.......frequenttrader bought into this stock recommends it for the next few weeks in these turbulent times. Below is the summary from a technical point of view courtesy of INVESTTECH.COM, any comments from anybody???? "Has broken the ceiling of the falling trend, which indicates a slower initial falling rate. Support and resistance: The stock has broken up through the resistance at 224 p. This predicts a further rise. "

Croda International PLC reported 2002 pretax profit rose to 36.3 mln stg from 31.7 mln a year earlier, and said it is "well-placed" for further progress in 2003. The group said that figure hit a 23 pct rise in profits from continuing operations, while sales edged higher to 314 mln stg from 312 mln in the year to December, while sales from continuing operations rose to 295 mln from 286 mln. The dividend was raised to 11.5 pence per share from 11.3 pence. Net debt was reduced by 11.5 mln stg to 52.1 mln and the gearing cut to 32 pct. Chairman Antony Beevor said the 2002 results show the "resilience" of Croda's core business and the wisdom of its strategy of concentrating on personal and health care sectors. He said the group has restructured its European oleochemicals business from the start of 2003 to increase the focus on growth in core markets. "We believe therefore that in 2003, organic growth, new product deliveries and the exit from low return businesses will mean that we are well placed for further progress," he said.

Just looked at this one again and if the ftse is going to rally during this week I see a move to the upside. Indicators in the oversold zone and turning and a possible range being established between 250p - 270p - 280p. One to watch the volume action on. No position as yet.

NOw up 8 points, 3.4% and over 1m already traded. Could be one of those 3-4 million days. Some big players seem to be piling in might be worth letting this one run for a while.

Now changed my mind when I saw all the MMs starting to mark down. Will defintiely go up again but hoping to re-enter at a lower price - not going to hold over w/e though - too long for things to happen so will settle for 15 points, doesn't sound so much.

NOw +12 points, over 5% - hmm, almost upto the 200 day mark around the 255p area. Will keep going on Tuesday or will it give a little back? Think it might try for 255p today before stagnating a little. Indicators are good for continued increase however.

Must have been a few after hour trades, volume rising 3 days in a row as the price has gone up - must be a jump up soon.

Interesting few trades - massive t trade which appears to be a sell yet there has been plenty of buying at the 240p mark - I guess someone feels this one will fail at the 20 day ema - will we breach 1m trades today?

Volume up again to 0.5m by lunchtime but this time MM buy of over 100k shares - someone short and there's obviously demand for this share out there, question is when is it going to launch - clearing 239p will put price above the 20 day ema and then it should zoom to 250p ish where the 50 day ema currently is. Looking better and better albeit a little slow for most people. Probably why I'm by myself on this one.

Well having logged on again see we were just short of 1m by 7k. Still, need to break thru'the 21 day ema. Maybe today.

Well there goes yesterday's volume - things picking up and still the lunchtime period hasn't been and gone when most of the large trading takes place. Must be some insitutions starting to go long on this stock.

And another 0.5m purchased in the morning this time. If it keeps up like this we'll be thru' the 14 day sma and onwards and upwards to the 250p area.

Just looking back it seems that most major moves have occcurred on volumes around the 3-4m mark. Given 1m had already gone in the morning are we on for one of thise high vol days - next 2 hours should let us know I guess.
