I suspect that they are now starting to find out what they have really bought!

Anyone know a reason for the recent dip? Seems to be on the slide now for a couple of weeks. Could be a decent opportunity.

Is it possible that Peel Hunt, Canaccord Genuity, Investec etc in raising their expectations from hold to buy and forecasting higher target prices have not taken in to account what Mears have actually bought at Morrison FS. Morrison were loss making, and I suspect that the depth of the black hole may not be understood yet. I don't know, of course, but there are similarities to Connaught and Rok here. I will not be adding them to my portfolio for at least another 6 to 9 months when they have had time to ascertain what sort of a tiger they have by the tail!

Good luck Space, I'm in, looks like a solid company and worthy for a re-rating over the next 12 months. Better return than cash left in the bank, imo..

IC Social housing and domiciliary care specialist Mears Group (MER) says trading remains solid and it has grown its order book from £2.6bn to £3.8bn, with 88 per cent of consensus forecast revenues for 2013 in the bag already. Buy.

Interims today.. divi up 7% Mears Group Plc. (MER), which operates low-income housing for the U.K. government, said it intends to make more acquisitions to broaden its social care business by the end of the year. "Our aspirations are to make acquisitions in mobility, nursing, and physiotherapy," Chief Executive Officer David Miles said in a phone interview today. As well as organically growing existing assets, the company expects the additional services, which require higher expertise, to raise operating margins, he said. Mears reported group sales of 307.2 million pounds ($482.5 million) in the six months to June, up 5 percent from a year earlier, according to a regulatory statement. Sales in its care division increased 8 percent to 56.1 million pounds. Miles said there are risks in expanding into a politically led market. The government's care and support White Paper introduced in July has "good ideas" but needs clearer thinking on funding, according to Miles. Mears expects a review of the bill within three years, he said. "My main concern is the demographic time-bomb in care, budgets are growing but that is not in line with the number of people who are living longer," Miles said. "A significant funding increase will be required to deliver high quality care." Shares rose 2.1 percent, the most in three weeks, to 266 pence as of 8.30 a.m in London trading. The company announced an interim dividend of 2.3 pence per share payable Nov. 5, according to the regulatory statement. Mears provides over 160,000 hours of care to 20,000 people each week, according to the statement. It offers maintenance and repairs services covering more than 10 percent of U.K. social housing.

Good increase today probably as a result of people reading the annual report. A lot of negative comment on this board over the last couple of years associated with the aftermath of the banking crisis and likely cut backs on local authority spending but Mears look to have come through it well with increases across the board. The five year performance and forward order books both strong in what has been a difficult period. Still looks a sound solid investment.
