100rich: Tipped at the weekend in the Momentum Investor
faraway: LONDON (Thomson Financial) - Murgitroyd Group PLC said executive chairman Ian Murgitroyd cut his stake in the company as part of a share placing with new and existing institutional investors following significant institutional interest in the group. The company said as part of the 515,000 share placing priced at 425 pence per share, Ian Murgitroyd sold 500,000 shares and now holds about 2.39 mln shares, or 28.61 pct stake in the company, while executive director David Castle disposed his entire stake of 15,000 shares and no longer has an interest in the group. ON THE BASIS OF THAT STATEMENT AN INCREASE OF 25p WOULD BE EXPECTED BUT WE HAD THE SAME EFFECT THE LAST TIME HE SOLD A TRANCHE. CASTLE'S DISPOSAL IS A DIFFERENT MATTER HOWEVER.
hyper al: Any other investors in this?
lbo: MURGITROYD (MUR) Investors Chronicle - United Kingdom; Oct 01, 2004 Aim - Murgitroyd is the only quoted patent and trademark practice in the world, and has a good track record of winning new business. So, with its market in Europe now showing some signs of life, following a period of stability, its shares are worth a closer look. Murgitroyd offers a range of services, including filing, prosecuting, litigating, licensing and renewing patents. Its customer base spans companies in the fields of technology, engineering, chemistry and biotechnology. But it also works for individual inventors, and both in-house and external patent attorneys. Recent new contract wins include work for IBM, the Royal College of Surgeons and Delphi Auto. It can take up to seven years to train an attorney - and Murgitroyd employs 22 with an average age of 30, almost half the average age in the industry. The company has also launched a new service whereby attorneys are seconded to work in-house for clients, which has already been well-received, and is likely to further cement its client relationships. FT MONEY - INVESTING: My first big stocks spree for seven years By Peter Temple Financial Times; Nov 13, 2004 Of the remaining three stocks, two fall into the category of what Warren Buffet might call "toll bridges". These are businesses with an asset or business franchise that is hard to duplicate. The first of these stocks is Paypoint. This company came to the market in September and runs the network of terminals in shops that offer electronic payment of utility bills, mobile phone top-ups, council tax and the like. Many people prefer paying bills this way and there is scope to increase the installed base of terminals and attract more companies and organisations to offer this type of bill payment. Either way, the system has extremely attractive margins on incremental business and an installed base that is difficult for any competitor to duplicate in a hurry. The second of the two "toll bridges" is a firm of patent attorneys, Murgitroyd Group. Patent work is soaring as companies become increasingly conscious of the worth of their intellectual property. Moreover, activities such as, for example, internet downloading of music can pose threats that need to be countered with legal action. It also takes seven years to train a patent attorney. So a firm such as Murgitroyd with an experienced cadre of these legal specialists should do very well. That is what I am banking on.
