Not sure what holders see in this share (and sector) to be positive about.

Half of mine went for 91p today. May be out too early , but these have become a bit volatile , wouldn't be surprised to buy them back next week for 85p. Who knows?

Agreed there deadly, it looks as if Germany's strength has propped them up, if that is tested this year things could change, I'm surprised to see the rise and a current year prospective PE of nearly 18.

Surprisingly strong response to the trading statement which looked only moderately positive to me.

Well 'wad' interestingly enough I see Canaccord have upgraded to buy today and significantly increased their target, well by 12pc, to 101p (from 90p)! Some standard analyst comments in this article I found today (courtesy of Broker Forecasts). Doesn't say too much but they obviously see value going into 2013: http://www.brokerforecasts.com/news/article/articleId/4515046

Currently heading towards 90p - I think I will unload another aliquot if it passes ; been a good run recently.

IMS='Stable'. Which is at least a little better than expectations. Investec: This [update] contrasts well with Michael Page's result yesterday. Whilst we view Hays as less geared into a recovery, it is also less geared in a downturn and this isn't fully reflected in the current valuation, with the discount to peers looking too wide to us. We remain buyers, with our 90p target price unchanged.

Sold out a lump at 80p , seems like an irrational meandering share price and I am happy to make 10% in a fortnight.

Bought a bit early , but this now looks like a share price recovery, the rise is sharp and reasonable volume.

I didn't catch bottom though ; starting to recover again now.I suspect the Euro uncertainty is going to keep this suppressed for a while.

...but I am a good guesser - touched 80p this morning.Bought back in , this share being valued at 10% less than last week seems complete nonsense to me ; happy to trade on it.

80p seems a crystal ball prediction to me. 5dma and bottom of the trend channel at 89p first, until that fails then lower targets can't be contemplated when the stock is in an uptrend. If it was trending lower then a lower target would be feasible. 92.5p and 93.7p are current resistance and the key to higher prices.

Breaking out here, if the 200wma at 93.7p can be conquered then the next stop is 100p.

Traded some out at 91p ; there seems a good chance that these will be back to 80p again soon with the volatility. They are not Xd again until October.

They have 3 divsions of which Continental Europe and the rest of the world is the largest at 40%. Asia Pacific and the UK and Ireland share 60% of these 2 Asia pacific is the bigger so the most the UK and Ireland can be is 30%. It's likely to be somewhere in the 20's though.

It is not that clear from the statement how much each region accounts for. Am i right in assuming the UK and Ireland accounts for 48% guys please?
