50% more buys to sells - are they going to let it go ?

Agreed but it needs to get to at least £5.5 to take in these fantastic results. 90% of manufacturing companies would love something half as good this year !

volume seems low for such a drop, DMA boys last ditched attempt to drive down IMO . 9.30 onwards should see a rise, once the bigger buyers warm their buy buttons up.

The Group's ability to weather turbulent economic conditions and produce record sales and profits demonstrates the robustness of the underlying business and the continuing resilience of our chosen market sectors. Furthermore, these results were achieved despite steeply rising raw material costs in the first half and weak industrial markets, particularly in the second half. We have started 2009 in line with expectations. The broad trading trends of resilient Consumer Care demand, weaker industrial markets and favourable currency translation are continuing. We are confident of making further progress in the year ahead."
