Ken you do really come across as a spiteful bitter person, don't take the company INF too seriously Ken its not the be all and end all in life. I am happy to answer your questions 1 I still hope to see this figure next year however i have a stop at 250p that would still give me over 100 points profit. Ken why are you obsessed with trying to make out i have lost money on INF? 2, The board hinted yesterday that they may need to make sales of company assets if they fail to meet the new headline checks for the debt - READ THE RNS! 3,I would not be surprised, i don't think you understand Ken that the troubles for INF are always going to be the next 12-18 months and not the last 12 months results and figures that the company talked about yesterday. However it seems that the pound collapsing by 20-40% as saved their bacon on these figures. 4,I did and i still do, like i openly said 250p is the crux, your posting above like INF is out of the woods and will rocket upwards. Ken believe me the market and moreover INF could larch down any day. 5 Ken you would really do better to talk about inf rather than trying to attack me. Do you want me to post every single broker update is that what your point is? i don't understand? Ken read my posts, unless i am responding to troll posts like yours above I TALK ABOUT INF- TRY IT KEN!

25cent Re your post 280, I agree that their ability to manage 2009, particularly in relation to the conference/business side is key. The good news is that 2008 is secure and, presumably, the dividend is safe. Your reluctance to believe anything the Board says is more in line with AIM companies where the directors have no track record and, if their business fails, will never be seen again. The difference with the Board of a 250 company is that the directors have track records and, if they tell an outright lie that will become obvious in a few weeks or months, their credibility is shot along with their careers. That is why, on the 23rd October statement, I did not believe they were lying, given they were going to make another statement today and the results would be out in February. What is your current view given your previous recent statements detailed below: "21/11 Post 233 25cent I have moved my short target down to 100p." "25/11 Post 238 25cent I expect panic sales of part of the business before to long to try and reduce the massive debt mountain. I remain a with a target FOR MY short of 100p." 25/11 "Post 241 25cent I would not be surprised at all to see INF replicate the 94% share price fall seen by TNI and Johnson press, i don't see any reason why this will stop falling," 26/11 "Post 249 25cent I predict that the short squeeze will end and this will continue down, thats my opinion." 18/12 "Post 280 25cent The company are now surprise surprise bringing to the attention of shareholders what i have been saying for a 2 months about the its bank covenants" They mentioned the tightening covenants in their update on 23rd October – 8 weeks ago "The resilience of our business combined with our strong cash conversion gives comfortable headroom within our bank facilities. As previously indicated our covenant test levels tighten in 2009. However, the strength of our cash flows and the breadth of our asset portfolio across different verticals and geographies gives us confidence that we will manage the business in 2009 to ensure that current headroom levels, or better, are maintained." I would be very grateful if you could adapt your incredibly informative post 241, re how brokers massage their downgrades etc, to the Panmure forecasts that you helpfully pointed out in the same post. Panmure, as you pointed out in that post, reiterated their hold and reduced from 250p to 175p. 3 weeks later they have revised their stance to 225p. Do THEY know what they are talking about ?

REF update today/ I would say that the statement was guarded but more positive than i expected. However the real test is how the business performs next year whilst actually in the recession. The company are now surprise surprise bringing to the attention of shareholders what i have been saying for a 2 months about the its bank covenants "The Board remains focused on the level of headroom against its bank covenants." and.. " as previously discussed, tighten next year. We remain comfortable with the current level of headroom but continue to monitor both this and trading carefully and have a number of options available should circumstances change." That means fire sale of assets if needed imho. By the looks of the lackluster response to the share price the market are not yet convinced that it will be able to manage its debt in accordance with the tightening of its covenants, we shall see.

Call the doctor someone lol Multiple personality disorder Definition Multiple personality disorder, or MPD, is a mental disturbance classified as one of the dissociative disorders in the fourth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV). It has been renamed dissociative identity disorder (DID). MPD or DID is defined as a condition in which "two or more distinct identities or personality states" alternate in controlling the patient's consciousness and behavior. Note: "Split personality" is not an accurate term for DID and should not be used as a synonym for schizophrenia.

Oh i stand corrected, let me get this right, you have nothing to do with the the_Doctor and we can all ignore all the 10 or so reasons i provide in my last post based on the fact that you have posted on another thread? right ? LOL Have you the slightest idea how weak that is? I love this thread it just gets more outright ridiculous by the day.

Well of course that's where the name came from! As to not posting before, this from the SWG thread "peladon - 13 Apr'08 - 11:33 - 240 of 353 edit Tipped as a buy in this month's edition of Sharewatch." Not that I would expect facts to spoil a fixed delusion. I wonder if you ever saw North by Northwest :-)

Like i said Doc your a busted flush mate. The more you wriggle the more funny it gets.

Apart from some people accusing me of looking like Davin Tennant, which I dont, that is the closed association I have with Dr Who, or any other connections. As for 25cent, what a tw'#t Why would I want to use a different username I never have and post exactly what I think with this one name alone.

Why bother trying to keep the pretense going? your a busted flush the_doc. Why on earth are you still pretending to be peladon? What happened to post no 267? have ADVFN started to clamp down on the_docs alias usernames? its been deleted.

Dalekdale, I don't post much nowadays, but you might find the odd comment on SWG, MCB or EAGA. I remember there was a daft conversation on ?CCT thread about the Zarbies - not sure if that involved you?

Not accusing you of anything peladon , I'm just pointing out a remarkably coincidence, two posters back to back have a very strong Doctor Who connection in their name. I am the no1 Doctor Who fan maybe we can be WHO buddies? As i am so much a fan of Sci-fi and think i am right on this, go on then prove me wrong , what other threads can i read your posts on? exterminate! exterminate!

I don't really want to take sides on this but as a avidly mad keen nutter on sc-fi i can not resist it. I can tell you the connection with two names on this thread without even trying. Username 1 ;- Paladon The Curse of Peladon is a serial in the British science fiction television series , which was first broadcast in four weekly parts in winter 1972. What TV serial you ask? Username 2 ;- Thedoc As in the name of the main man in Doctor Who Well surprisingly The Curse of Peladon was one of the best Doctor Who series ever. Sorry TheDoc could not not help myself, but you made it far to easy. exterminate! exterminate!

Erm so let me get this right and I understand you correctly I am losing money according to you based on a two word post? Who the hell are you mystic meg or something? thats some party trick you have, LOL What bits of my post show anger? i would love to know as believe me this thread gives me more hilarious fun than you will ever know. I am now confused,on one hand using your other alias you say i am losing money when INF falls and now using this new alias your saying i am loosing money when it goes up? Make your mind up for heavens sake? I dont suppose you could point me to any other posts you have made on anyother threads could you peladon? or did you join advfn today by any chance? You keep saying the same things in all your posts no matter what username your using about me being rude and that i use a weak argument and now apparently i even have a "insecure personality" really? oh well! However the facts don't quite back up your argument do they now. Considering I am the only one on this thread that correctly predicted its 50% fall in 5 weeks and moreover i am predominantly the only person that actually talks about Inf's business and future on this thread You just troll my posts and post personal attacks agaisnt me and then in a deluded twist try and make out in the very same post that is what i do? Why don't you stop trolling my posts,and instead do some research on inf for a few days and then come back and actually post something about INF rather than attacks on me. Then i may take you serious because right now your a 3rd rate the_doctor , who himself is the monkey to the ghost of the dearly departed troubled INF organ grinder Kenmill, not a great place to be that is it m8 is it now? LOL Tell me now peladon (cough) when is INF's next tightening on its debt covenants due to take place? Go away,even ring the company and find out and then the penny may drop, or do you prefer the head in the sand "it will all turn out all right approach to investing like my mate Ken? If so don't find out and then just hope they don't breach their banking covenants' Me i am stupid like that, i find out these things BEFORE i open my big trap on a bb.

Indeed????????????? or does your memory only work one day back peladon? Its akin to you celebration finding a penny on the floor after losing a ten pound note ;-) Meanwhile back to the facts! The top line is the FTSE100 The mid line is the 250 The bottom line is INF Massive underperformance you will see, RSI is bad, but hey,be my guest and take the docs word that it has recovered faster than the market in general. In inf's past experience Peledon you may be wise waiting until market close before you try and gloat about a tiny recovery in the shareprice , because this is more often than not followed by an almighty slump, 90% of the time in the late afternoon. For any serious people on this thread other than trolls like peladon and thedoc. Retaking 250p would signal be a bullish sign but i personally don't think it will happen unless news on some assets sales are announced to alleviate the breaching of the banking covenants fear in the market on INF. However as we know you pays your money and you take your chances.
