0856 GMT [Dow Jones] Bank of America Merrill Lynch upgrades IMI (IMI.LN) to buy from neutral and raises price target to 1150p from 930p, noting potential earnings upside, strong margin management and balance sheet options. Also says that on 9.4x 2011E EV/EBITA and 12.5x PE, the stock is attractively valued given the group's high returns and growth profile. Adds that IMI is well positioned relative to the sector given its low gearing and bolt-on acquisition strategy. Shares +5.6% at 961p, making IMI the biggest riser on the FTSE 100.

Just get the feeling the market expects a 'break-out' from the 940s ?

They've gone up a bit since then but I generally agree with that assessment - I still like Weir as well !

IMI's shares may have risen by 80 per cent, but compared with Weir the rerating relative to expected profits has been modest. The group has good market share in niche markets and an increasingly lean manufacturing base – as the relentless margin improvements of the last decade show. At 895p – 14 times 2010 earnings – the shares still look cheap. Buy.

Bluebelle: Good , solid consolidation at ever higher levels. Well said. Best to keep the champagne on ice until we break through the £10 barrier in the New Year!

Well, so am I, Beckwith : a lot to be said for it, especially if it's accompanied by a large gin and tonic !!!

Love it! If the big players use the same software, then the software will be correct.

I have du plessis's book on order at the mo - hasn't arrived yet. I do have traderPro though (second year of subscription) I made the comments about targets because in an updata video, David Linton said "many of you have asked how the targets are generated" but wouldn't give an answer about it. I kind of assumed they were a USP of traderPro but I'm happy to hear they are not.

dasv - 20 Dec'10 - 15:26 - 104 of 105 The targets come from Jeremy Du Plessis's work at Updata and they are very tight lipped about how they are generated dasv Aren't they set out in Chapter 4 ?

dasv : Thank you so much for your painstaking and expeditious response. Sounds fascinating . I will order a copy of Du Plessi's book. This really is a civilised thread. As you're probably only too well aware they are few and far between.

wendsworth - I've set up a thread with the symbol "P&F" in which at some point I've attempted to explain Point and Figure charts. They are charts where there is no linear time scale at the bottom.P&F charting is an approach aimed at de-noising charts (by looking at trends and requiring strong reversals). The targets come from Jeremy Du Plessis's work at Updata and they are very tight lipped about how they are generated - presumably because this is unique intellectual property for the company. Essentially the targets are Momentum indicators. They can be removed by strong momentum in a reversal. The theory is that if a target is met then the trend is confirmed. We can see in the chart above that the target of 730p was hit (which confirms the bullish trend). the price levels with numbers like 3.2, 1.7, 3.6 reflect risk reward at that given moment: it's an attempt at establishing the upside gain versus the downside risk on the basis of momentum. At the moment current risk reward is 1.5, 1.7 which isn't bad but not as good as at 480p and 660p when risk reward was 3.2, 3.6 in favour of reward. Jeremy Du Plessis's book is on amazon. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/1897597630/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new

dasv : Thanks for your post. Not being a chartist can you explain the basis to the trends or the 'pointers'?

Bluebelle : I know what you mean ! I have found setting 'realistic targets' a sensible approach in current markets. My limit sales and buys seem to be far more profitable and get me away from the mouse! Having said that ...I was happy with a 463 sell of BP on Monday this week and then it shot up 15p! Returning to IMI my research indicates this is a strong hold particularly bearing in mind some general market headwinds. Beckwith : You won't be disappointed. Usual caveats ...of course!

Just topped up with a little more, hoping this one has a bit to go yet.

wendsworth I think you could be right : I certainly hope so !I rarely set targets - the market has a habit of upsetting them. I tend to buy and hold for as long as the reasons I bought still seem valid and I can't see any reason to do anything but add/hold at the moment !!!

Bluebelle: Just the start after the re-trace following FTSE confirmation. I see IMI close to £10 in the New Year. 10% upside from here.
