Summary of main points of FT article: 'MCg appears neglected by the market. Similar rivals in the US trade on double the lowly 8.3 times accorded to MCG by Evolution. This reflects lower margins but does not account for all of the discount.. MCG cotrols a series of brands that are performing relatively well and has the potential to outperform estimates for 07. The recovery of margins, regional diversification and Ineum aquisition have combined to lift MCG accross the board.'

Cheers penpont. I thought it was the underlying eps (6.1) too, but seeing as they seemed to be so far ahead of the forecasts, and the price has not responded positively, I was begining to have doubts! The highest forecast for 2006 was ABN with 5.03. On the face of it, MMC beat that by 20%! If that's the case, then I'm wondering how come MMC did not issue a statement saying they would beat anayst's forecasts (I thought more than 10% above forecasts, and a company is obliged to inform the market). As for basic eps, I believe several investors including ADVFN report basic eps, which as you say, is misleading. Perhaps other investors have yet to cotton on the true value because of this. I will sit on my hands with this one. I hold over 16,000 of these in the ISA, and was tempted to sell in order to fund the acquisition of other shares, but you are probably right. Patience is the key. I have made stellar gains on AIM stocks this year, partly because I intend to hold for 12 or 24 months to make the most of the tax breaks. However, it's easier to give into impatience in ISA held stocks, as there is no tax to consider. For that reason, I have missed out some big gains in the ISA in the last year, and I have no intention of adding MMC to that list of near misses! My one caveat is that if this drops below 45/46, chartwise, it may not bode well.

It might be worth checking the FT today - have just read on Citywire that they have an article on MMC headed: 'COMPANIES UK: Neglected recovery story in world of consultants'

Hi Could someone more knowledgable in accounting procedures help me out here! Rivaldo's post (428) details brokers forecasts as follows: 2006 2007 Broker Date Rec Pre-tax (£) EPS (p) DPS (p) Pre-tax (£) EPS (p) DPS (p) Bridgewell Limited 19-01-07 OWGT 15.70 4.97 0.80 24.20 6.23 0.88 Panmure Gordon 19-01-07 BUY 15.10 4.88 0.85 22.80 5.53 0.96 Evolution Securities 18-12-06 BUY 14.63 4.44 0.90 21.60 5.15 0.95 ABN AMRO 18-12-06 BUY 15.65 5.03 0.84 23.78 6.04 0.88 Collins Stewart 07-08-06 BUY 4.80 5.90 And.... The results give eps for 2006 as follows: Earnings per share - pence From continuing operations Basic 4.1 Diluted 4.1 Basic - excluding amortisation of acquired intangible assets 4.6 Basic - excluding amortisation, non-recurring and non-cash tax items 6.1 The question I have is when the brokers made those forecasts, which eps were they talking about for 2006? i.e. 4.1, 4.6 or 6.1? Cheers I.

These excellent underlying results and the positive forward statement should ensure strong earnings growth this year... A share price north of 75p is fuly deserved imo... Directors should certainly buy...they have done so at around current share prices before... dyor but a great opporunity imo! Good luck all!

Nice risetoday! Remember: Management Consulting Group PLC said it expects full-year pretax profits and underlying pretax profits before amortisation of intangibles to be in line with market expectations and added it sees "further progress" in 2007 and beyond. The company said it expects full year pretax profit before amortisation of intangibles of 14 mln stg and a 13 pct revenue rise to 146.5 mln stg, also in line with market expectations. The company said it took a 2.1 mln stg one-off reorganisation cost in the full year associated with the acquisition of France's Ineum but added the benefits of Ineum "will be fully visible" in the 2007 numbers. Roll on 12th March!
