published on fool.co.uk Recruitment success Another FTSE 250 firm that’s impressed me recently is international recruitment group Hays (LSE: HAS). Its net fee income rose by 6% during the three months to 31 March, with like-for-like growth in all regions including the UK. Chief executive Alistair Cox reported a “mixed economic backdrop across Europe” but said that the group’s main market of Germany grew by 6%. Elsewhere, Hays’ Australia and New Zealand business reported its 19th quarter of growth. Although the future is uncertain, I think Hays’ size and geographical diversity should mean that it’s in a good position to cope with any regional slowdowns. In the meantime, profit margins are stable and cash generation remains very strong. Analysts expect earnings growth of 4%-6% per year in 2019 and 2020. With the shares offering a forecast yield of 4.6%, I think Hays remains worth buying.

I think this is a slow grower, the results are not amazing but good based on its challenging conditions. Probably 5-8% growth over the next few months im reckoning

Looks a decent TU this morning, LFL growth of 6%, net cash 30m, but marked down sharply, admittedly after recent sharp gains.

Recruitment company PageGroup notched a 20% rise in annual profit after a strong performance at its overseas businesses offset weakness at home in the UK. Pre-tax profit for the year through December climbed to £142.3m, as revenue rose 13% to £1.55bn. Gross profit fell 1.7% in the UK, but rose 19%, 18% and 19% in EMEA, Asia Pacific and the Americas, respectively. PageGroup declared a full-year dividend of 13.10p, up 4.8% on-year. It had paid a special dividend of 12.73p per share in October. 'This result was due to a combination of improved business performance and increased operational efficiencies, balanced by the level of investment, which has produced positive operational gearing,' chief executive Steve Ingham said. 'We are mindful of the macro-economic uncertainties that exist, but we will continue to focus on driving profitable growth, while continuing our strategic investments towards our Vision of 10,000 headcount, £1bn of gross profit and £200m-to-£250m of operating profit.' 'Our flexible and diversified business model ensures that we are able to respond quickly to changes in market conditions.' Story provided by StockMarketWire.com

Looks well oversold. Nothing new in the headwinds.

Bit of a shocker here, I'm not currently a holder, having been interested previously. I see a £5m currency headwind as a potential negative, but they are hitting various records in terms of revenue. Is it the slowing of growth that is a problem? Is this a good opportunity to buy in, or is the changing market overseas a bad sign for Hays?

Delayed positive reaction to results after the bizarre fall yesterday. Tried to top up but was too cautious.

Yes, but give it time. I usually check end of day for my dividends. Some brokers are better than others at crediting dividends to your account.

I have had the final dividend of 2.26p paid into my account today. I was assuming I would also get the special dividend of 4.25p today as well. Does anyone know if I should of received the special dividend payment today?

Excellent numbers. Not too concerned with the public sector performance. Should see 10% mark up on share price

Numis just increased their target to 180p, earnings on the up, so there's likely a bit further to go in the short term.
