any views? Looks like little upgrade from my screens, but still down on the day! Hopefully just tracking sideways until next newsflow.

MMC been creeping up slowly....$ must be hurting them, but 1/2 year just ended and have not seen any downward movements in forecasts so assuming IMO that this still looks very cheap. Opinions?

If they do, they conceal it well. Jeez this is a corpse. Still got 50% of my original stake and would love a brief rise to unload it!

Daily Mail article today:- 'Hungry private equity groups have got their eyes on Management Consulting group, at 49p. Leading shareholders of the struggling support services group, who are said to be miffed at recent underperformance, are rumoured to have been asked to name a price for their stake. One is believed to be ready to accept 64p a share. If true, a full scale offer would soon follow. Candover and 3i are two names in the frame'.

Ah ha! I reckon poor visibility of earnings - short-term contracts the norm - is why this company is lowly rated.

ADVFN have the no. of shares in issue at 189.79m whereas the company announced shares in issue of 271,100,804 on 30th April 2007. I was wondering why the market capitisation at £95m was so low! £135m is a bit more like it - but still very reasonably valued at 10x 2006 PBT. The share price has significantly underperformed the FTSE All Share Index over the last 5 years (see page 40 of the 2006 annual report). Anyone know the reasons?

QS9 - It's not a case of it being strong now - it's more a case of it having been exceptionally weak and moving toward it's true valuation.

Looking very strong recently, anyone got thoughts on why the sudden pick up? Does look cheap IMO on fundamentals alone but no newsflow for a while expected??

Yup - I have to travel to Bristol for a shareclub once a month. Worth it though - great bunch of guys! MMC starting to climb - 58p is my breakeven for this tranche. Bought when I was new and naive! The lot I sold I bought for 41p so I'm technically up either way. Been a long old haul though!

Sold half my holding at a decent profit. Remaining half I currently hold at a loss. Ho-hum! Will dump them at earliest decent opportunity. Bored to death with MMC and can never understand the volume patterns!

"Group revenue for the first half of the year is anticipated, on a like for like basis, to be in line with last year" 'On a like-for like basis' - what implications does this have for actual revenue? - more or less than last year? No mention of profits compared to last year. If EPS are the same as last year at 2.9p , (based on the same revenue), then this share is cheap, but can we infer that? Comments welcome.

"Parson Consulting continues to lack good visibility " What on earth does that mean? Is it management speak? Is it foggy where they are? Have they run out of light bulbs?

true kneath the statement is not "good" and the points you mention are bad, but its not like a profit's warning and if they make the profit they are forcasting then this company is still well undervalued. (personally i am getting a bit bored of this share and im starting to think my money could be better invested elsewhere! lol)

pobpob: Nothing bad in that statement: "Group revenue for the first half of the year is anticipated, on a like for like basis, to be in line with last year" "The US dollar and Euro have depreciated by 21 cents and 4 cents respectively against Sterling compared with the comparable period of last year. The vast majority of our revenue is billed in these two currencies. Consequently, the reported revenue is adversely impacted by the translation effect" "Parson Consulting continues to lack good visibility which makes the outcome for the year difficult to predict. Investment in people has continued in the United States which remains below scale" Do you mean including or excluding the above. Incidentally I do appreciate there are positives in the statement, but the above hardly merits the description "nothing bad". What the bad does is diminish the good, particularly when they can't quantify either as it is "too early". Personally I think it is a very average statement and not worthy of investment to newbies as there are so many better options available - as much as it pains me to say. As a holder, I hope I am wrong.
