Interesting debate and nice to hear a range of differing thoughts and experiences. My guess would be that those consumers who are buying the value range of products are most likely not changing their habits at all and i would figure these are also the finsbury cake buyers maybe? Whereas the more discerning consumers are probably moving away from any supermarket meat products but most likely don't buy the cake stuff anyway. fwiw i've happily eaten horse meat on the continent and found it fine. I figure jpjp's comment just about sums it up really. When i was chatting to our local farm shop butcher his view was siimple "If your paying very little for your lasgne then what do you expect it to contain. All food is produced to a price end of story really." I guess you shop according to your principals and income so you pay your money and take your choice. But it's been very overdone imv, no ones dropped dead because they ate a bit of horse meat. As has been stated by others here the more worrying thing is the lack of traceability and quality control. I await the FIF figures with interest, roll on end of March, might be warm enough to get some golf in. Woody

The horsemeat is only the tip of the iceburg; the real issue is that animals unfit for human consumption eg. because of disease ,can just as easily be used.

The comment that I thought summed up this meat scandal (it isn't the first and it won't be the last)... 'If you are buying (insert retailer name here) value burgers, the type of meat that is in those burgers is really the least of your worries'

Me too ale, I don't discriminate between animals and have no sentimentality whatever towards horses. The issue really has been about whether we can trust what food says on the packet and particularly the lengths to which immoral producers are prepared to actively compromise standards and control simply to maximise profit. In many respects it's the food industry's version of the sleaze that we've seen in politics, media, banks, ambulance chasers, accountants who all seem to operate without moral compass. Sadly, the current Tory majority seem to prefer to allow such practises because they too appear to have no sense of greater good. The recent ignoring of the recommendations of Leveson and the EU proposal to restrict bank bonuses to an excessively generous one year's salary are ample demonstration of their mentality of looking after number 1 and most certainly not being all in it together.

Maybe one's family and the friends one chooses will tend to have a similar outlook to one's own. I simply don't give a stuff about the horsemeat issue so maybe the same might be expected of my friends and family but, perhaps, that is not representative of the populaton at large. I am concerened about it highlighting how lax monitoring is in this country. I've always had doubts about nutritional labelling due to coming across very salty food was not labelled with high salt content. I suspect that side of monitoring is also probably way off the mark and can be highly misleading for companies where strict quality control is not enforced. I'd like to see more random testing.

I know many people who have significantly altered behaviour - generally moving away from processed meat whose contents are not patently obvious.

I don't know anyone who has changed behaviour due to the scandal. It's affected the cheapest products and people buy those on price. THey know the poorer parts of animals end up in these products and don't seem too bothered so long as they're cheap and taste okay. I think the effects are exaggerated. The products that are passing are not free from horse DNA anyway; they're just under the 1% limit. So your burger has 4% horse in instead of 0.9%. What's the big deal? I thought the funniest thing was that sales of horse meat have trebled as people have discovered it tastes like beef but is healthier for you so many are trying its on its own for the first time! I had a horsemeat stew years ago. It was fine. You wouldn't know it wasn't lean beef. I think it's more likely that Cenkos have weak forecasts due to the never ending winter we have been enduring. It's been cold with occasional snow showers all the way from the start of October to March here. (March is the 7th consecutive month of below average monthly mean temperatures which makes 2013 look likely to be the 5th below average year out of the last 6 in the UK - It's worse in parts of Europe where 6 out of 6 looks to be on the cards unless it warms up soon.). The last few years have been getting less summery. Perhaps, Cenkos have assumed summers will be shorter in future.

it's not me, i've enough. going back to Alemans note regarding reasons for eps forecasts being a little low, perhaps the horsemeat scandle has resulted in footfall reductions in supermarkets so maybe sales of other products will be effected. It's certainlly had an impact on meat and poultry, my local farm shop owner has seen his sales of meat products go up threefold since the scandle and i'm sure he's not alone in that sector. He says he's never been busier and it's continually growing to the point he's struggling to meet demand. Indeed many of our friends have begun shopping for most of their weekly fresh produce at the market too. So fewer visitors to supermakets equals fewer sales of cakes perhaps. I guess it's a difficult one to judge as i figure the kind of people that i'm chatting too probably aren't likely to buy a finsbury cake anyway.....i can't ever recall buying one myself......oops! Anyway roll on results and more importantly outlook statement. Woody

Do we still have a buyer paying up to 52p setting a floor on the price? It seems to have been that way since results. Could be just a coincidence, I suppose.

Good to see the share price looking so solid and with the prospect of decent results and a strong outlook given the post results disposal.

I can't believe you're all over here entertaining this strange character. It must be quite sickening for him to watch the share price go up (and us get richer) despite his twisted ramblings

must admit the FIF trend recently seems quite +ve the Dow graph being strong recently....even lifting Italy and Spain.....I'm long on a few things, so hopefully the Dow wont ruin the party in the next few days at least...but Dow has had a fast largish run up from last dip around 13800 (FIF, still think that dilution has been wildly excessive !) (I'm more into tech. stocks, more of a roller coaster ride, and normally no tangible assets .... but recent one has doubled since start of the year, and I piled in very hard, whereas FIF seems to have taken a long time to double....difficult for us tech. fans to stay interested that long !)

markt you said (to me I think) "I was hoping you may give some reasons why you think the shares are a buy now at over 50p...other than 'plans afoot' or 'more attractive as a takeover candidate'.....not good buying reasons in my opinion....." The only 'reason' I can give for buying at those levels (50p+) is that the trend is up and I like up trends. (see my post #153 though too)

someone posted on the other thread that there is a bit of a buzz about the company now - it is being repeatedly tipped (maybe read ramped) and has (even) been discussed on CNBC !!! (a sure sign of retail punters being dragged in to book some profit for institutions imo) That, to me, is a warning that the top might not be too far away now. You know, once a taxi driver gives you a share tip, take it as a warning, when the elevator bell boy gives you a tip on the same day as the taxi driver, sell every share you have... that sort of warning. I have some pretty tight stops in place on my holding now - well above the average cost of my holding and not far below 50p. If I have a chance to move my stops up above my last buy in price and leave 10% or so clear, I will (stops to 53p as soon as there is a trade at 59p). If I get stopped out, I may come back in. If I don't get stopped out in the period between now and the day after the interims, I will relax things a bit.

Presumably this is on the printed Investors Chronicle hitting the newsstands today. On re-reading the tip update, it was pretty bullish. There does seem to be a bit of a "buzz" around this company at the moment; I never thought I'd hear it discussed on CNBC.

maybe the longs should pay me a retainer, looks like when I post the price goes up ! (maybe it brings out a defensive streak in the longs.....triggering them to buy a few more !)
