I'm an amateur but it might be because it's tipped to go into the FTSE 100 in a few weeks.

Anyone got a clue why this is living up to the title of the thread?

Decent set of results should underpin the price from here. A few bolt on acquisitions should also help

Bouncing a bit against the market now as it looks increasingly likely it will go in the FTSE 100

Closed out to take the profit. I'm thinking this could well bounce a touch higher. ie. up to 450p first. That said, I usually close shorts too early!

I'm expecting a bit of a bounce this avo, with tomorrow possibly reaching a touch higher... then 7-10 days of a drop, a bounce, then a month of zig-zag drops to about 380p

Right, I'm in for some shorts. No guarantee that it'll go down, but I fancy shorting this on a TA basis as a sort of hedge for my long stocks

Well, for anyone that wished the company had accepted the 450p bid a while ago, now is your chance to sell at that price! Endless moans from a couple of individuals. At the time, I stated that large shareholders obviously wanted to hold on. Now it is clear why. UBM also rising over the last couple of weeks All said though, chartwise I think it's time for a breather.

Has anyone any idea why there has been such improvement in recent weeks or is this just due to a general improvement in the outlook for b2b companies? Does anyone think an offer or deal is due in the next twelve months?

I see in the Sunday papers that INF are now the 99th largest company after their rise this week. If they keep this up they could be admitted to the FTSE 100.

I'm encouraged. If this is as bad as it gets, then this is good news. When the upturn happens, I reckon Informa is well placed to take advantage. Nice to have such a good dividend.

I watched the webcast of the analysts meeting. It seems to be steady as it goes this year with little growth unless the events side picks up in the second half. If that happens, most of the increased footfall goes straight to the bottom line. Tax rates will be in the low 20s for the forseeable future and covenant cover will be in the 2 - 2.5 range against a limit of 3.5. There may be small acquisitions. They can't really give more indications because nobody knows how the second half of 2010 will pan out globally

Good set of results in the circumstances. Rightly cautious for the coming year, but an increased divi. A lot will depend on the feel after the presentation this morning.

share price suggests that there is some optimism ahead of preliminary results due out tomorrow.

They did the right thing. Springer has been geared up too much by greedy Private Equity houses and made unsaleable in this climate (except to another greedy Private Equity house)

Thanks definitely not worth chasing the valuation up in a bidding war. I hope the Board has the strength to walk away if the price rises too much

Who is the rival bidder?

I don't reckon it's going happen. There's now a rival bidder and I just think the level of debt is just too high.

The market obviously thinks it will involve a rights issue and, given the level of discount for the last one, the shares are being marked down accordingly. The merger of the 2 companies would be a great fit at the right price. There have been several talks in the past on a possible merger (T & F and Springer)but it always failed on the price. Given the level of INF debt, the only routes are another rights issue or buying with shares that are immediately placed so that Cinven gets its money. Given that Cinven seem eager to sell, there could be a deal here but the INF Board would have to play tough on the price as the market won't let them do another Datamonitor type deal.

Just when you thought things had calmed down for a bit, then along comes the news of a potential bid for Springer. http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/0a6822aa-d885-11de-b63a-00144feabdc0.html?nclick_check=1 The analysts seem to be positive and acknowledge that the move is risky. Any views? kenmill?
