Does anyone actually know what the forward PE is at this price level?

I think below 10 is highly unlikely, but somewhere below 12 now looking highly probable. I'm on holiday currently so no time to research currently but at £11 presumably looking at a forward PE of around 15?Probably fair value for now given earnings are only growing at 10% per annum.

Thanks sundance, difficult to spot where the support is on the graph, needs to hold £12 imo or like you say 10 could come quickly.

Overvalued at previous levels, cautious trading statement for company on mid 20s PE means big fall in current markets. Looking for £10 before i may be interested in buying.

Dropped more than 30% now in less than 3 weeks,I know the market has been weak but this is more than general malaise, just what is the problem here? Been tempted to get in here but this fall is a big worry. Just where is the support now?

Yes, I should think so : I have no worries about this company long term. Sorry, I can't help on Section 104. I use a nominee dealing account (most brokers now offer them) so they make provision for consolidations etc. Re Invensys, might be worth spending a couple of hundred quid on an accountant to bring your affairs up to date then, unless they are very complex, you can keep them up to date relatively easily : the HMRC on-line system is incredibly user friendly and the Helpline is just that. One word of warning, don't leave it until the last minute : it takes up to two weeks from application to get the necessary passwords etc.

Just had an RNS alert saying Blackrock have increased their holding to above l6%. A good sign, presumably.

It's easy enough to keep track of purchase dates and prices; it's all the consolidations, takeovers, esp. for shares rather than cash, etc. that give rise to problems; also if one sells/gifts part of a holding on different dates (Section 104) and/or connected persons are involved (clogged gains/losses). My Invensys holding, arising from APV and Siebe, with various special divs. and consolidations, is a nightmare, with a missing link somewhere. My husband used to keep the records but now has lost the plot and can't even understand them himself. Certificated and no broker involved so am on my own. I don't understand spread betting so looks as though I am going to lose money yet again. Having said that, I thought it all hinged on when the US stops QE and that that is likely to be some way off so not sure why the big drop at the moment.

bouleversee It was a decision I took some time after our 'conversation' : at the time I was still bullish (for what it's worth, when I sold it was by no means at the top). I still think the long term prospects for OXIG are excellent and your grandchildren will do well. Yes, most are in ISAs and SIPPs but I have a reasonably sized dealing account, although I don't trade actively. I just set aside a day each year a couple of weeks before the filing deadline - it's a chore that just has to be done : the important thing is to keep records of everything you do. Like you, I don't know how active traders manage (I suspect a lot just take a chance or, despite their bullsh*t don't have to bother with CGT !). I keep a copy of contract notes on all of my 'live' holdings (and buy/sell contract notes from previous years of any losses) with the purchase date and tax year of purchase in big red letters at the top, in my current tax year's section, and bring them forward every year until I sell them/use up the losses. Things are a lot easier now that brokers provide detailed, itemised account data for the tax year. I used to use Sharescope for CGT calculations, but the HMRC on-line system does it all for you (as long as you have all of the dates). Yes, I'm getting as near zilch as makes no difference on my cash, so I'm losing money in real terms every day, but my first priority is to protect my capital (or at least stop it diminishing as much as I can) and compared to any of the usual asset classes, that's the best thing I can see to do ! (I also have a small short spread bet on the FTSE, small being the operative word)

Bluebelle - Now you tell me! It's not long since you were praising me for giving shares to my grandchildren. Clearly, what I should have done was to take the profits at the high, sit on the cash and buy back when the price dropped and then gift the shares or just buy them in their names. Wonderful thing hindsight. Are all your shares in SIPPs or ISAs? If not, how do you cope with all the paperwork involved in selling all your equities. It took me ages to do the computations for HMRC on the various shares I had given or-bed and ISAd. I've always wondered how traders cope with all this. Do others agree with Bluebelle's pessimistic view of where the market is headed? One thing's for sure, he won't be getting much interest on cash at present.

I sold all my equities a few weeks ago and I'm 100% cash. This is top of my list to re-buy when and if - quality stock long term - but I think the next major market move will be sharply down, and little will be immune from what I think will be a major global correction.

I'd expect to see £8 before £17. Q. Where is the earnings growth going to come from in the current economic climate? A. It isn't hence the share price plummet. 0 ;-D Saint

PEG factor of -2.31. OXIG has now been seriously oversold. Expect the share price to regain ground over the coming weeks and continue on its steady rise north as the company begins to conquer the Asian markets it is now targeting. With the technologies that OXIG provide tools for this is a long term hold to capture profits from the growing market in Nano technology. Could of traded it at 1700 plus and did take take a little profit however this will always be part of my portfolio. Keep the faith.

Fallen nearly 25% since its recent high,not really the cities darling any more. This one has had such a tremendous rise in the last 2 years, any one any ideas where the support is ?

Directors have said the year started slowly but hopeful of catching it up. Uncertainty in outlook = decline in share price (especially in a skittish market where any excuse for profit-taking goes)

Anyone any ideas why such a serious hit here? It's been such a solid one in the past but seems to have fallen out of favour big time.

I can't take the director purchase of 1,000 shares too seriously, to be fair! Non-executive though, so a token gesture.

Doesn't look like I've done my grandkids much of a favour by gifting this one after all; big drop in share price on top of lousy dividend. However, they can take a long term view which is more than I can at my age so hope things will buck up in the future.

b I can't see any specific reason for it either (but I could never see a particular reason for the recent fall either !). If you put 'FROG' in the EPIC box at the top and hit the EPIC button that should take you too the thread I mentioned. Your NATO experience sounds interesting given the French Government's at best ambivalence towards it ! We divide our time between England and the Loire Valley.

Bluebelle - They would be if they knew about it, though still not quite back to the transfer price of l633. I wonder what prompted today's rise. Incidentally, the link you kindly provided in previous post didn't work but I'm in deepest Bucks. not France anyway. I could have sworn I'd replied to that but can't see it here. I lived in Paris for l4 months (working for NATO) in my dim distant youth but haven't been to France (or anywhere else!) for some time. Lucky you if you're living in the Loire valley.
