With all due respect, meanwhile, if you know this, you don't need to follow the herd and fund it. Though to be fair to you, your first sentence implies you are doing the exact opposite to what you are saying the small fry do. So, suppose I ought to say, "Smart chap!"

My advice is try not to get too bored and don't panic. The market has been contrived for several months now while the big shareholding institutions swap, share out and adjust their holdings in MRO in preparation for the next big issue of shares. If the small fry like ourselves sell up, so much the better for the big boys. Like many areas of politics, government & finance, the market operates for the few big boys, while the rest of us just fund it.

Brush traction sold to Wabtec in 2011 So nothing to do with Brush

Point of detail but illustrative. I am aware Brush are incurring continuing losses on motive power for Caledonian Sleeper and by implication EWS.

Brush make a good product, unfortunately in the wrong place. Very labour intensive production - Platers, welders, machinists, winders etc. Skilled labour costs and price of copper and steel in UK are a challenge not to mention transportation costs of finished products at over 50 tonnes a go by road. Very lumpy sales, not helped by currency fluctuations as a lot of customers are outside the UK, sad but I don't think they have a future long term. I used to own some FKI, Bought after director purchase in 2009, doubled my money and it went higher after I sold but Melrose confused me with all the splits and returns of capital and rights issues and never tried again.

Brush (the last bit of the 2009 FKI acquisition) is in the books for £400m.I suspect they'll be a sizeable write down in due course.As Lex pointed out some months back,it's not just a question of buying well,in Melrose's business,you have to sell well too.

Could not resist a further top-up. Hoping Brush will be forgotten when their next acquisition eventually arrives.

It's more than probable that the brokers will release reassuring comments.They're very keen on Melrose and there nothing really new here.We all know that things in Brush's business are going from bad to worse.I guess we should prime ourselves for a writedown.Nortek marginally exceeding expectations but a caveat that xrates are inflating raw material costs.So,the management can't walk on water!

Feels like the priority is to sort out Brush before consummating another acquisition.Sold half some months back,so will watch for now.

I've no knowledge of next update, Matt. Last year I think we had a November one. But, to repeat myself here, how tedious these shares are lately. They either go down or stay the same. My preference is for the shares to go up and by a large amount. In truth, I'm not greedy man. I believe that a gross excess of something should be quite enough for anybody.

Has anyone else noticed how boring these shares have become? I know they will move upward some day; I just hope I live long enough. I'm even considering moving some funds into National Grid or United Utilities for a bit of excitement.

Pure logic, I think, is prevailing again, after an absence due to the market being swamped by institutional holders adjusting their holdings for the next share issue.

Maybe a buyer for Brush? Maybe a buyer for Nortek? (Early days, but with Melrose's record, its possible) Maybe just reconciliation following the results in August and the realization that Nortek is in far better shape than first thought. My money is on the third option, Melrose aren't known for being liberal with their dealings - always been above board, tight-lipped and rumour-free, a good thing too.

Surely an acquisition must be close - they started in March. Long term there is only one way this going - I think.

No idea but we know what the market wants....an acquisition or Brush to be swept permanently under the carpet.
