Royfox, I do not work in the sector, so you clearly have a better view of things than I do. I just attempt to analyse stocks, then buy those that have potential and are lowly valued within their sector. I have a medium size tranche of HVN as a long-term play in the sector, primarily as I view it as lowly valued. Contrary to STHR where I have a spreadbet short due to the fact it trades richly at a premium to the sector. Royfox how long have you been employed by STHR? c2i

C2i Do you still feel that they will take a dip? Why is that? I may top slice at £4, however I work in recruitment and the market is really starting to gain pace. Demand is rocketing for highly skilled candidates (IT, Engineering, Finance, snr apps) - I would not dismiss a bid for S3. £5 is is realistic now, especially with the great divi and the futher international offices sprouting (most recently a 3rd german office).

Royfox, I tend to read everything and also read your comments. Differing views are what make markets. The best of fortune to you. Will STHR be nearer to £4 or £3 by June? We won't have long to wait. c2i

Don;t worry I'm in, I'm an ex employee so know plenty about these boys. They are attacking the international markets, with over 50% of business now overseas. They have also recently changed the consultant commision structure which does not suit the Uk market, but it as a great model for maximing profit from international consultants. Whilst this is going to annoy (and has) the UK consultants, international consultants are less money motivated and more interested in career growth. This bodes very well. I'd expect to hit £3.50 within 6 months and target £4.00 within 12 months. Great dividend as well. Buy

any one still here. Breaking out now since 29/12/09. Could be rising due to finals due 1/2/10. as per last TS in line with expectations. Old 2007 resistance at 315 me thinks, may not matter anymore.

Yes. £37.6m is 'gross profit', not 'pre-tax profit'. Statement doesn't look that great to me. Too many 'however' s.

SThree Our view: Buy Share price: 184p (-2.5p) If there is one market we really do not fancy at the moment, it is recruitment. With unemployment continuing its inexorable march upward, why would you want to buy shares in an industry that makes its money from a rapidly shrinking market? The short answer is that you would not. Unless, you are considering SThree, the specialist IT recruiter, that is. Yes, the group reported tepid first-half profit numbers yesterday, adding that permanent placements were down 34 per cent in the first six months of the year. The stock dutifully fell 1.3 per cent. But we would be buyers. The group is in the enviable position of filling specialist jobs that have sent the average permanent placement fee up by 17.3 per cent on the same period last year. That would not in itself be enough were it not for the fact that SThree has done well in terms of cash, which at £43.9m has underpinned the dividend yield of 6.4 per cent. The analysts at KBC argue that the stock will reach 220p, saying: "Our target price is based on a multiple of eight times a forecast cycle-average earnings of 27.5p." We would stress our distaste for anything in the recruitment sector, but there is an exception to every rule and we would recommend SThree. Buy.

if it interests anyone, sthree laid off 1/3 of all staff at the end of last month.

Investors agree that SThree is just the job for Adecco Market report Robert Lindsay It may not seem a good time to buy a British recruitment agency, with unemployment rising so fast, but talk that Adecco, the world's largest recruiter, is considering a bid for SThree is hard to discount. Adecco's main business is placing blue collar staff but it has a €1 billion (£940 million) war chest that its chief executive wants to use for acquisitions to bolster its white collar business. Kean Marden, an analyst at Singer, believes that with sterling weak and the euro likely to fall soon, now is a good time to bid. Adecco could pay between 250p and 300p – up to £400 million – and meet its internal targets for growing value. That should satisfy the hierarchy at SThree, who own 30 per cent. The shares, which were floated at 200p, added 1p to 181½p, having risen from 158p in six days.

This does indeed seem unloved! Very little activity on the BB for a company with so much going for it. My only reservation is the potential down-turn in the recruitment market at the moment, but they seem to be weathering the storm pretty well from what I can see. Nice rises in the share price of late, too! Anyone else got any thoughts?!

This is a dream stock for me....Obviously unloved and hugely undervalued. PE is less than 5.5....Net cash of £25m...Strong cash generation, very positive outlook (and very well justified) in results just published. What more can you ask?? Afer a second strong rise today this should hit some radar screens tomorrow. I genuinely think we could see a fairly quick run to 250p over the next few weeks. Oh yes, and a nice divi too !

looks like s3 are spending over half a million quid a week buying back shares in an effort to prop up the share price Wait for the profit warning then they'll look silly they could have bought all those shares for half the price!

sneaking over the 200p mark, as the good run continues (bid approach for MPI today not doing any harm, methinks)
