Good call by both Standard Life and Kames Capital - each announced yesterday that they had sold a very large chunk before yesterday's rise !

edwardt Me neither, although I do understand - and like - the basic business model and metrics. As I once posted after they'd put out a particularly arcane press release about one of their products, if I can't even understand a press release, the barrier to entry to whatever it is they do must be so high that it will be very difficult for anyone to compete with them ! I was only half joking !!!

good for you , i was a little late to the scene on this one! Also can't say i fully understand what they actually do - seems a little complicated to me!

Well my money's where my mouth is : as a result of today's rise it's now my biggest single equity holding !

don't disagree but this company is becoming loved by the city and am sure many remain underinvested.

I must admit I'm not a great fan of companies winning these awards - can act as a distraction. There was always that list of 'time to sell' signals, one of which was when a company won the Queen's Award for Industry. I remember talking to a Swedish analyst who said that in Sweden the equivalent was if the Annual Report featured a photo of the Chairman in tennis gear !!!

I cant find any news, nothing new on their website, nor on a google search, could be £11 today at this rate !

That's certainly true - you'd think there was some reason for a sudden rise like this though sureley ?

Bluebelle..been itching to get through a tenner, looks like the brakes are off and the resistance point is anyones guess now we are in unknown territory.

Any idea of the reason for this ? Spends all that time nudging at £10 then for no apparent reason just cuts right through it with it's biggest daily rise for some time. No complaints though : what's the next step : consolidation above £10 : retrace or head for the sky ?

The Zulu Principle and Beyond The Zulu Principle were written by Jim Slater. Two of the best investment books ever written. Liarspoker summarises the principles and suggests stocks meeting the criteria on his thread here : http://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=26707416 Those that fit ALL of JS's original criteria are few and far between - this doesn't now - but it's a very good starting point in terms of stock selection.

Bluebelle..what do you mean by a 'zulu stock'? Thanks

Not surprised, bbd : it's a classic Slater stock père et fils ! I've held for some time now and for me it's a classic Zulu stock. The one criterion on my check list which it didn't fully meet when I bought was that it wasn't consistently increasing the dividend - although they had maintained it - and even that seems to be being addressed. I really like the business model and the management.
