Questor Share Tip INFORMA UNDERVALUED DESPITE MIXED UPDATE Consensus forecasts are likely to be trimmed following Informa's first quarter update but the shares still look undervalued. INFORMA - QUESTOR SAYS, "BUY." The events and professional information company has a mixture of defensive operations and business that is geared to an upturn. That's why it was named as a tip of 2012. The shares have outperformed the wider market but have moved off highs on resurgent eurozone debt fears. Informa operates in three divisions – academic, commercial information and conference management. The defensive parts of its operations are its subscription publishing operations which service businesses and academia. The events business, which organises about 9,000 conferences a year, is the one with the most cyclical upside. The market was spooked by weakness in its professional and commercial information unit. Two of the larger sectors – pharmaceuticals and financial services – saw "longer renewal cycles and reduced subscriptions", causing organic revenue to fall 4.1pc, but the group still sees organic growth in the full year. Academic publishing saw a 2.5pc increase in like-for-like revenues and the events business saw organic growth of 3.6pc. The shares trade on a December 2012 earnings multiple of 8.9, falling to 8.2 next year. This is substantially below its historical rating and the shares should be supported by their 5pc yield. They are up 3pc this year compared with a FTSE 100 down 4pc. Buy.

solid results and a 20% increase in the divi. A strong hold as it should drift upwards during this year with just under a 4% divi

Positive statement to back up mildly positive podcast 3 months ago. Shows it was oversold and the company is trading well in the circumstances. Should be around the £4+ mark.

I listened to the podcast of the analyst's meeting this morning. Mildly positive with noises about growth from recent actions, synergies,Datamonitor integration, new areas etc but not predicting much bottom line growth this year. As you say, solid set of results, 11% rise in the divi and steady as you go. You are not going to lose any money holding INF but you are not going to make a lot in the next 12 months either.

A decent set of results, but nobody seems that interested. I suppose Informa needs greater confidence in developed world growth, or takeover prospects to make much progress - both missing at the moment.

Yes - good solid statement - 500p looks a possibility by the end of the year

IMS tomorrow. Last results were upbeat on prospects and the FD spent some real money on shares when they slipped below 400p. I hope the optimism was not misplaced.

The drop may have been partly due to them missing the cut for the FTSE 100 and some institutions may have been stake building to satisfy their requirements, then reduced when it didn't happen.The FD can obviously see value at this depressed price.

Reasonable results in the circumstances, published on a bad day in the markets. Outlook fairly positive to underline current share price but nothing too exciting to look forward to. Reinforces my view last October that the market was valuing the company about right and probably no more than 10% upward movement to look forward to for the rest of the year.

I don't think she will win many prizes under that category, although I think it will end the year higher than it is.

A couple of days ago Informa was picked by one of the Sunday Telegraph financial journalists as her share of the year for 2011.

I agree there are a number of occasions where the price appears to move against the market/current news. Currently they have been between 96th and 106th largest company over the last 2 months so there may be some manouevering by tracker funds. Also there may be some year end portfolio adjustments, given the rise in the last year. Apart from that who knows. I see they are back up 9p this morning so they may be adjusting up again.

I never understand Informa. Loads of broker recs and general sentiment and yet the stock price seems so 'soft', falling whenever the FTSE has so much as a sniffle. It seemed to be heading for 450p+ just a month or so ago and yet now it's dipping below 400p. Any reason for this?

Thanks, Kenmill. Sold today at 441p - not bad considering prices over the past few years!

Short of a bid, I can't see the price moving more than 5% in either direction in the near future. The scientific publishing side is very steady/positive and the conference/exhibition side is in recovery. I don't see any big surprises on the results front and I therefore think the market is valuing it about right at the moment.

I'm thinking of selling some of my shares in Informa, mainly because I need the money. I was just wondering if anyone had a view as to whether this was a sensible or foolish decision at this particular time. Does anyone see any major change in the share price over the next six months or so? Thanks.

I agree it is a likely reason - it has been between 94th and 100th largest company for the last 2 months.
