CR, don't forget TRI and CKN - fully listed too... Penpont, yep, same questions occurred to me. I think in the end the difference in months quoted is probably down to journalistic error/incompetence (and generally Citywire is pretty good, so I suspect the Sunday Times). As to Panmure, they used to be the house broker so maybe they do still have an inside line? Or perhaps having been sacked as broker, they realised their previous Sell advice might look a little silly and concocted something to enable them to change their advice to Buy without looking too ridiculous?

Probably most interesting to me is the fwd PE of around 7 and ISAable, and a near 2% yield. I thought a lot of bargains like this had disappeared in the fully listed sector but my faith is getting restored with these and AVON this week. CR

i think a move up to the latter 40's is on the cards this week well done for the investors who bought over the last two weeks and held strong i think you will be rewarded

News articles like this often trigger trading statements imo. Looks good for a modest re-rating at the very least at these levels imo. CR

Yes, many thanks rivaldo. The article does however throw up a couple of questions to me. Firstly, it slightly contradicts what citywire said a few days ago which was: 'Panmure upgraded Management Consulting from 'sell' to 'buy' at its morning meeting today. Trading is a lot better than originally thought, with September and October being particularly strong, it says.' ..Yet acc to the ST, Sep and Oct were weak and it's Nov and Dec that were strong.. I also wonder how come Panmure appear to have such a month-by-month finger on the pulse of trading at MMC, when they aren't even the house broker? Must say I didn't trust that brokers knowledge was ever that well informed, except perhaps if they were the house. ~Whatever, hopefully a price rise tomorrow will take us up to more positive action with the imminent TS.

Thats a relief.I was holding back from buying precisely beacause PG had a sell recommendation on them,arguing that PG must know something I dont.Well the article clarifies why they saw MMC as a sell and am mighty relived they have changed their stance following the strong trading in Nov annd Dec. I now believe the market will rerate MMC as it appreciats the stability of earnings offered by the Ineum acquisition.A rating to 12x will do me,never mind 20x ! :o) Thanks for posting the tip Rivaldo

Ta Welsheagle. That's a start - and this is even better - a major tip in today's Sunday Times: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/newspaper/0,,176-2534117,00.html "WHEN Management Consulting Group bought its French rival Ineum last July, many investors hoped that the deal would lead to a re-rating of the shares. Decent interim results, announced a week later, showing pre-tax profits rising by 54%, provided more positive news. However, investor hopes have been dashed and the shares have fallen, slipping by about 25% since the Ineum deal was announced. The share-price decline underlines why investing in management consultancies is strictly for the courageous. The business - where short-term contracts are the norm - can be volatile. Trading at MCG is understood to have been so poor in September and October that analysts at Panmure Gordon feared that the company would be forced to announce a profit warning. But trading is understood to have recovered well in November and December. Last week Panmure switched its rating for the company to a buy. The £92m Ineum acquisition looks a good one since it broadens MCG's range of services and diversifies the risks at the group. MCG has two other legs to its business - Proudfoot, which advises industrial companies on how to improve profitability and cost-cutting, and Parson, a financial-management consultancy. Parson's US business has been hit hard by a decline in work advising companies on how to comply with America's tough Sarbanes-Oxley act and made a £2.1m loss in the first half. However, it is thought to have broken even in the final quarter. The shares, at 44¼p, are trading at about 7.7 times this year's forecast earnings - the most lowly rated in the support- services sector. In contrast, most of its US peers trade at about 20 times earnings. For the brave, the shares are worth a bet."

The Panmure Gordon 'buy' recommendation is mentioned in the 'broker buys' section of the Daily Mail today.

adyjudge, I remember you paper traded MMC at 47P, I hope your real trade was at a much better price :-) Glad you and Cr4zyness are on board. Good luck with it :-) rambulus (Post 294), Agree with your post although not necessarily a bad thing either! The "mass" stop loss out have allowed us to buy at 39.5P ;-)

As a novice investor, I am extrememly nervous about the current volumes & ratios. I would imagine others are too! Given the sell ratio, I am surpised the price has maintained its level. Whilst this may not concern experienced investors with their data access, it will concern the many novice investors.

Just been a panumure gordon (I think) upgrade to buy has there not from what I can see? DYOR but this should help turn sentiment which has been -ve since 70p+ days. Looks oversold and good for return to mid-50ps me thinks (DYOR) but next piece of newsflow will be key.....am in for the ride as of this week on the back of the upgrade in advice. from broker.
