Just checked, advfn are miles out, how can they be so poor in maintaining the correct market caps on all stocks ? 330 mil shares so around 110 mil market cap not 63 mil as shown.

It's a long time since this group was known as Proudfoot, and doubtless much has changed in its operations, but it was the first (and very lucky) lesson I had in selling down shares in a management consultancy type operation as economic storm clouds gathered; for the business ended up severely affected. Interesting to follow though, with Parry etc now removed.

The results were indeed excellent, however, the company is uncertain about its future prospects- see below, this probably explains the share price drop along with general market volatility. However, the very low P/E of 5.5 means I will hold for the moment. "The company said it expects to show good growth in first-half revenue but that it will continue to review whether or not the challenging economic conditions prevalent in the US will adversely affect business during the second half. Group Finance Director, Craig Smith, told Thomson Financial News in an interview that the group has about three to four months of visibility in its order book and hence cannot see into the second half of the year. He added that since 40 pct of its business is dependent on the US, MCG has to take into consideration the bleak outlook everyone is painting, although the company hasn't seen a slowdown yet."

deadly - This may cheer you up a little. Landsbanki says reduce Debenhams (LSE: DEB.L - news) and hold TT Electronics (LSE: TTG.L - news) . The broker says buy TUI (Xetra: TUAG00 - news) , James Fisher, Ted Baker, Management Consulting Group (LSE: MMC.L - news) , Vantis (LSE: VTS.L - news) and OPD

Excellent results but predictably the shares are down - what a depressing market.

Market likes it. P/e of 5 for Dec 08 on current forecasts from what I can see, decent yield, profits forecast of £20m+.......better relationship with city and no reason these should not be rated on 10 times at least which suggests IMO a much much higher price....am holding now for 6 months to see how far the institutions who have nudged board out take this....

QS9...like all the best humour there is a strong element of truth in your opening words...this company has been a puzzle to me for a while now...such potential yet not achieving any stockmarket recognition...maybe now we shall (gradually?) see a useful double whammy of improving bottom line and a useful rerating too... If so, 55p plus should be well in sight even in current stockmarket conditions. Good luck all!

Employ someone on half the salary and they will already have materially altered the profit profile......one a serious note, this can only IMO be positive for the share price given the extremely low rating involved here.

It was meant as a sarcastic comment on the low sp, considering the eps. The historical average PE ratio for the whole market is around 15, so a PE of 6 is low.
