I agree its odd. If I knew what triggered it I would not have closed 2 long positions last week!

Anybody understand why the big jump ? I have held for some time and don't understand why we get such violent fluctuations on what seems to be a stable well managed company. It has always looked a good long term investment.

Good bit of press today: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/sharewatch/investment-column-mears-looks-set-to-fly-as-rivals-flounder-2285107.html "...now trades on a forward earnings multiple of 7.2 on the estimates for 2012, a discount to both its support services and its contracting peers. Based on this lowly valuation and in light of the recent strong momentum, we think that Mears is worth a punt, particularly as it is likely to benefit from further distress among weaker rivals."

Looks like steady as you go, 93% of this years revenue in the bag, you used to have to pay a premium for this kind of visibility of earnings.

I reckon, indicators been turning positive here for a while now.. 1/2mil chunk through today too so could be last of an overhang? There's a nice prominent big "W" double bottom on the chart, could signal the start of the (long awaited lol) reversal here?

Commnent from the Artemis Small Cap March factsheet: "The only real detractor to the fund's performance in March was from our holding of social housing maintenance group, Mears, where investors were upset that the expected annual profit forecast was only met by a change in the treatment of their pension assumptions."

No need to persuade me - I jumped in again with all three feet when it suddenly fell back below 250 last week. Just need to see off the automatic selling machines now, but will they listen to reason?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/markets/questor/8384083/Questor-share-tip-Mears-cash-generation-ability-makes-it-a-winner.html The order book is a record £2.7bn, revenues grew by 11pc to £524m, securing a 15th year of uninterrupted growth, and the dividend is up 18pc to 6.75p. Pre-tax profits slipped from £18.4m to £16.4m, due to an amortisation of acquisition intangibles of £10.1m relating to Supporta deal and the acquisition of Careforce in 2007. At 280, Mears trades on an affordable 2011 price to earnings ratio of 10 and a yield of 2.6pc. Buy. The final dividend of 4.85p is payable on 1 July 2011 to shareholders on the register on 10 June 2011.

Support here? bouncing now on bottom of trading channel, few indicators now turning positive, oversold imo and due a reversal to 330 area maybe? free stock charts from www.advfn.com Also sat at longer term established rising trend line since 2003 free stock charts from www.advfn.com Growthcompanyinvestor from 15/03/11 "Mears enjoys 93% visibility of consensus forecasts for the current year and 80% for 2012. Broker Collins Stewart expects pre-tax profits of £39.6m and EPS of 28p. Mears has net debt of £12.2m but this should be repaid by the end of the year and a new bank facility of £85m has been signed to help fund the business. On 10 times current year earnings, Mears is a quality business that deserves more. Buy." Was 280 then, now 245. Another new contract win here from 1/04/11 (10 years): http://www.24dash.com/news/housing/2011-04-06-Exciting-times-for-Moat-and-Mears

CNX I think we HAVE been in the blue chip business but as the Govt. cuts bite I don't think it beyond the realms of possibility that councils could default - defaults by council tax payers are certain to soar - and housing associations also. At the best, as councils get squeezed, payments will be long delayed and work will be deferred.

Im guessing there are a few people on the sidelines waiting for a upturn in the market in a solid performing share like Mears, increased div and positive outlook. "Dont catch a falling knife" but just waiting for some support and director buying wouldnt go a miss. At this point it could signal the bottom, definite buying opportunity on increased relative strength. Keep watching for some improved volume.

By Mears's standards I would have thought results were mediocre which is reflected by the drop. Not likely to make a lot of progress this year either. The risk of bad debt which in the past has been neglible will soon become significant. But a relatively safe share nonetheless

if you believe, here is a buying opportunity, especially in view of dividend increase and almost perfect view from holt what will be interesting is to see directors buying on this drop
