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.

Could the next big acquisition be on the way? It is overdue.

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.

Significant moves in MRO will only be when the next acquisition and Brush disposal is announced - neither of which can be too far away. Nortek has returned >50% underlying operating profit increase through Melrose's restructuring and lean management approach. There's a great deal waiting to happen here when Nortek get sold off. Still more than happy to sit, hold and wait for the returns, they've not failed to impress me in the last 6 years or so. GLA.

I think I called the floor right. Upwards and onwards.

It looks as if £2.00 is the floor. We await the next acquisition.

Yes,you're right and it's what the Investors C.alludes to its latest hold recommendation.Some drastic action might be required in respect of Brush,write downs etc.It could well be that Brush,in part,is now inhibiting Melrose from making its next acquisition until it knows exactly what the balance sheet will look like post remedial action.

Maybe it is the potential value they may have to write off in the Balance sheet when they decide how to handle the Brush collapse? and the on going losses until then and if there is no acquisition forthcoming It just all adds up negatively until something happens. It will get better though

Dav1 - Brush is what it is. No one thought wonders were coming out of something that supplies the oil and gas industry. The directors played the share price by making an acquisition statement in that March RNS - the market is now asking them - where is this? They did this to get the highest pay out. One thing I will state - the pay out is not a concern, they deserve it. How many companies went up 300% last year?

Truth is,the shares have been a bit shaky ever since David Roper sold 2 million at slightly shy of 255p.

Yes I would not dream of selling any of mine but I am shocked at at the reversal. It is a puzzle that the BOD keep hinting but nothing transpires. They have always been brief with their statements so I suppose the sellers must be concerned that there is something behind the scenes which is adverse. I think I must stop looking until say ... Christmas. I am glad to see a few comments as I feel less alone about this!

I think given Brush is 5% of production the market has run low on patience for the value element that was added for potential acquisition. In March I would say we got an additional 20-30p for them just stating they were on the hunt. Lets hope they do something soon - by that I mean in the next 3-6 months. I nearly sold up before the trading update but held as I believe Nortek would make it upside overall. One thing is for sure - I feel safe investing in this for the LT so can ignore the short term.

I am convinced that the price will recover as the next acquisition nears. I don't think Brush is responsible.

Brush only 5% of profit, so a relatively minor player here. The other 95% is very positive IMO.

Anyone know what it might cost in write off to close or dispose of brush. How much in Goodwill? How much in Assets etc ?
