The update tone wasn't unexpected after the results statement and flat divi, the UK&I and parts of Europe are the culprits plus the tilt to contract from perm. Perm to Contract was 50:50 at results, but now 46:54 and that affects profits. But Non UK&I share of gross profits increased from 65% to 68% so rest of world is still doing well and the ratio growing, ie. increasinbly bigger footprint outside the UK. They have strong demand in parmaceuticals, biotech, energy, engineering and mining and their core IT business remains good. There is insatiable demand for personnel in the US petroil, gas and shale industries which is also being seen in other countries, there was also some comment yesterday, which I can't find now, admittedly speculation, about US or European heavyweights eyeing up suitable UK recruiters. Personally I think STHR are in the right places at the right time and could be a candidate for such attention if and when (that's not a rumour spread btw and if I find the article link I'll post it). http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-03-07/dearth-of-skilled-workers-imperils-100-billion-projects.html

This should dip today and possibly leading into next week so might see a buying opportunity by next Friday. Results aren't that great

The HVN share price would need to treble to be on a similar rating to STHR and HVN are still growing profits. Certainly looking forward to a jobs market recovery.

Well that's as much as I expected, or better imo. But things were never going to sound great - anyone could see that from MPI results this week - but the clue is MPI's chart - it shrugged the results off and rallied to mew recent highs. No good buying recruiters when they start telling you there's a jobs recovery, the price will have doubled by then. If you believe like I do that there is a global recovery on then the jobs will follow just as night follows day imo. All imo - I'll just keep buying the dips and wait for recruiters to take off - the chart here tells you more than any trading statement and it's breaking out and steepening upwards. A near 4% yield to help you along too. All imo, dyor etc CR

Todays IC positive on recruiters in general and STHR in particular:- ....SThree is currently rated on a forecast PE ratio of 14 times, a discount to its historical average and the wider sector..... http://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/2013/03/07/shares/get-ready-to-profit-from-the-recruitment-recovery-go6vweha3Ekoay2uGiK6FN/article.html

Recruitment seems to be picking up. STR bouncing off the 50 day average again. Recovery seems to be happening in Europe - should have positive effects for STHR imo. MPI moving up recently - often a good indicator imo. CR

Broadly encouraging under the circumstances I think. The geographical diversification should help in the long term.

Pharma/biotech up, Energy/engineering up, everything else iffy, profits down, divi static, nothing in the statement I could see to give cheer, phrases like 'satisfactory under the circumstances' don't excite. However there's plenty of cash, fee levels have been maintained and they're working to manage contract more profitably, overall a bit disappointing but probably to be expected after the last trading update.

Is the global outlook going to improve? same question. Or rather when. Dunno. Noticed a piece in todays Telegraph though arguing the commodities supercycle has only stalled and will lift again 2013 onwards, STHR have over last 2 years developed mining and related engineering expertise I was concerned it might have been a blip only, but if the sector starts heading north again they'll be well placed to build on that, pharma and IT are healthy too. Financials seem to have been worst affected. My own experience in hospitality & food ind has never dipped, restricted only by government restrictions on foreign skills.

low 290's is a good place to have a punt imo, might have missed the boat tho is the job market is the next recovery story?

Thought it was decent but only that, trading in line and on a pretty high PE, nice to hear Russell's commitment shares-wise though.`HVN issued a better update with expectation to exceed FY guidance by ~10% and they're on about a third of our PE, didn't do much for their share price but they look like a better buy. I hold both.
