Sold 50% of my holding, that leaves me with 10 shares and a piece of bread to dip into my beef gravy.

If the Stirling Industries acquisition of Ipsen goes ahead, could there be some link with Melrose other than through the historical connections of the Directors? Ipsen supply furnaces & technology for heat treatment of metals, a process I would guess that aerospace may use. Are the Melrose - Stirling connections stronger than we might believe? Are Melrose providing guidance to Stirling? Will there be a good gravy with our meat tonight? Who knows the answer to any of these questions? My guess is that there are some yes answers here, and not necessarily just to the gravy one.

I don't post much on these boards as many are just trying to boost the price or have some other motive. Many are just idiots. Stop loss on your investment is always a good idea, but 10% on a £2 share is cutting it fine. Also by the time you read it in the Sunday papers, any news has already been reacted to by the market. The papers are generally not making their own predictions but getting the tips from other sources that have already published. Watch the trends yourself.

We are told by brexitplus :- "I haven’t recently and don’t intend to post much here. Like Yertiz I have much more important things to do than waste my time here". Well, I suppose the battering he's taken from Burford and MINUS500 have given him a few more important things to do. Otherwise, brexitplus has indeed pointed out a critical error in my analysis of Stirling, which he believes, I suppose, could affect the whole future of the Company and the prospects for their shareholders. On the other hand, it could be irrelevant and the means of raising the capital to make the acquisition could be the important factor for shareholders. Of course with his well known astuteness, he will be coming in as an investor when he knows the full details of the acquisition. I hope he's not too late.

B+, well given he’d never even heard of a stop-loss I guess we shouldn’t be surprised!

I haven’t recently and don’t intend to post much here. Like Yertiz I have much more important things to do than waste my time here. However, in response to meanwhile’s post re Sterling, his post is incorrect. The directors of Sterling are not former Melrose Plc directors; they are former directors of companies Melrose plc acquired and made considerable profits from in turning them round.

There is one major hurdle left for Melrose re GKN - potential Labour government. That might be pretty catastrophic for the SP, excluding that, very nice 5 year upside.

“A mechanism I must say I had not previously heard of” What?? Really?? Then you’re even more of a novice than I had even considered! A few points of detail Meanwhile which I’ll spell out for you because I know you require simplicity: 1. The Burford price didn’t drop 50% ‘overnightR17;. In fact there was a steady fall of around 15% (from memory) the day BEFORE the really big hit when the Muddy Waters ‘dossier’; was released. If you ask someone to show you how to use a thing called ‘the internet’ then you could check for yourself. 2. You asked who I use to apply these mysterious stop-losses. In this case the answer is IG but you can do it on all platforms eg Hargreaves Lansdown, Halifax, AJ Bell etc etc 3. If you need any more help such as how to tie your shoelaces or how to use a wireless radio then please let me know. Yours forever, Getting 💓

A good, and sustained, reaction to the H1 results suggests we may be entering a new phase of the cycle at Melrose, where true potential begins to be recognised in the share price. However, better to be safe than sorry, so I have decided to employ the stop-loss method suggested to me by 'getting', a mechanism I must say I had not previously heard of. I have set this stop-loss at 10%, a figure getting employs, to protect my gains made so far. With this in place, if, for example, the sunday papers reveal a chronic cooking of the books at Melrose, resulting in a hidden £20B debt, and the shares open on Monday morning at a mere 12p pence per share, my loss will be confined to 10% of today's price, you see. I don't know why everybody isn't doing it.

gettimg, I can see why you have entered another of your 'malicious' phases and I understand this fully from my compassionate nature. The severe demise of your hotshot shares in BUR and PLUS/MINUS500, coupled with the recovery in Melrose (in which you believe I have my major holding), is indeed a dreadful blow to you. I do understand and will make allowances for you at this difficult time. Now just clear off.

getting, The stop-loss order you entered for BUR must have been of a unique and wonderful form. Normally with a stop-loss of 10% below your purchase price, the stock would be sold when the share price falls below this level, but the price you get is the prevailing market price, not the stop-loss price. So if a share falls 50% overnight (as BUR & PLUS500/MINUS500 did recently) you're not going to limit your loss to 10%. Let us know who gives you the wonderful version.

Meanwhile, I have to say that despite our differences, I did feel rather sorry for you when you got ‘taken down’ earlier today by Chimers on the BUR thread. Certain words are, I believe, rather beyond the pale, and the one he used to describe you was definitely in that category!! Hope you are ok, love Getting 💕 💗 💖

I suggest you consult a meat cookery site for advice on gravy.

Just landed in Jersey after a few weeks at sea, what welcome news breaking 200.I hope politics and Boris have not been controversial in my absence whilst battling the elements in Biscay. Looking forward to some beef with a good gravy, any suggestion welcome.

These are exceptional results. There is little question left that MRO will once again deliver, this time on a much bigger scale. Disposals will come in time, it's not an issue and they reap the cash flow in the meantime.

Is this site a suitable place to deal with a matter on the level of gravy?

MRO results and associated pitch are becoming somewhat bland and predictable -- a bit like Bisto gravy. They need urgently to go back to basics and produce a major disposal which will really boost shareholder value -- a bit like the large shot of sherry in Jamie Oliver's gravy recipe.
