Germany reported better than expected unemployment numbers today, the US ditto last week. Several firms incl STHR (which anticipated it a year ago) are seeing strong demand for staff in the energy and commodities sectors in Asia Pacific, Australia and Africa. As you say CR, on a bad day we are holding well.

I don't think it'll be long before that have to raise that price target again. I do like their quote though : "We continue to believe the market underestimates the medium-term growth opportunities of this cash generative business,"

But when you look at MPI their last results their earnings were down 13% while STHR's were up 20% here's that chart again - underperformance is stark imo: free stock charts from uk.advfn.com Brokers are forecasting sales of around £560m Charles Stanley forecast 17.1p eps, 14.4p divi in Feb Sales are up around 12% year on year which would make £607m sales for the year if it continues. The 14.4p forecast divi looks nailed on imo and the 17.1p eps compared to the 16.8p look easily beatable imo CR

Maybe size is the problem, institutions wanting to get into the recruitment area for the coming recovery might not be able to get the volume they want in STHR.

How crazy is it? These ar eon a PE of about 14 and paying a 5% yield, up 9p today. About £50m net cash. MPI is on a PE of 20+, a 2% yield, growing at about the same pace as STHR and £50m net cash and today it's on a new recent high - up 11 ! STHR is bonkers cheap in comparison. MPI is 4 times the size yet forecast to do jusat 2.5 times the profit to mkt cap. Far less scope to grow from this size. The £50m net cash bot co's have is far greater comared to STHR's mkt cap too. All imo/dyor. CR

well at the last update they said they had seen further weakness - now they have sales up double digit and saying Q1 is up on Q4 too - that sounds like a decent improvement to me. With a yield of over 5% that looks pretty safe and a history of divi growth and cash back - I think brokers have under estimated STHR imo. Don't get 5%+ yielding cyclicals as the market picks up imo. Way too cheap imo. CR

Better than expected I'd say, no sign of the slip in growth late last year continuing, good news overall just the UK letting the side down. If eurozone quietens down, at least for a while, we might even get the share price up a bit.
