Don't think a single broker's downgrade is worth 7%!

Thx dasv / Baynet. Also found this; 0910 GMT [Dow Jones] N+1 Singer cuts Spectris (SXS.LN) to hold from buy and target to 1780p from 1950p, ahead of Spectris 3Q IMS next week. "We would not expect the group to completely shrug off the weaker market conditions being reported by capital goods groups across from the UK and overseas." it says. Reduces its forecast for organic sales growth for 2012 to 3% from 5% as weaker global manufacturing PMIs and industrial production numbers suggest a tougher backdrop in 2H. "With our near term organic growth estimate reduced to 3%, we no longer forecast an increase in margin for 2012," it adds. Shares down 4.9% at 1580p GB.

Morgan crucible cutting back production apparently influenced the share price growth on the skids generally.

Upside break to new ATH. Wave 5 Fib target 2168. Should be knocking on door of FTS100 entry if it gets that high. Position 110 last Friday. http://www.stockchallenge.co.uk/ftse.php
