8% yield at ALU ednumdshaw if you like high yields, ISA-able and the engineering side growing well - might be worth watching for their trading statement in early Jan imo. CR

Your opinion and well worth listenng to. Unless there's an RNS at or before 7 am tomorrow your cold shower will have been well justified. Could there be someone with an interest in a high share price on Dec 31?

FWIW, on the yield front I also hold CHU, HVN and ISG in the small caps, and SSE and Aviva in the large caps. With the debt burden beginning to look quite serious with some of the larger companies & utilities (water in particular, but also the likes of HMV and YELL), you have to be careful in selection; more careful than some of the big investors have been. My opinion anyway.

In demand again today! The market finally beginning to see the value here. Unless... no, cold shower time! :) Agree the results werenice. My high yield portfolio is doing well of late, now the bond bubble seems to be deflating.

I note they have picked up two 5 yr Network Rail contracts - this will help undoubtedly. I agree however very solid results and an excellent dividend

H2 is seasonally weaker (winter effects + lack of events for TPA) but, as you say, 22.6p should be achievable. Well run company.

forecast eps for 2011 is 22.60p. Appears to be more than achievable

And very satisfactory they are too, yoyo. No doubt even better if the AMP5 programme had got under way a bit quicker.

Not only dirt cheap at this price, but 7.7p dividend to come if you hold on Sept 1st...

Post IMS stock marked down to 150p . I paid 153.5p for stock via Selftrade and Hfx today for ISA and wife. JPilk always conservative so dull IMS , but co is pregnant with final div of 7.7p goes ex on wed 1 sept. Yields 5% on final div alone and 7% on total . Will stock be offered @ 145.8p xd on 1 Sept ? That is the effective entry price today for ISA buyers . Cyclical ..yes, risky ..no . A decent high yield trading stock hopefully near the bottom of the trading range.

Yup. Well managed business imo. First bought these back in 2003 around 130p, sold out in 2006 around £3, bought back in last year at half that. So I have to fight a natural experience-based liking for these and be disciplined; but it certainly seems decent value under £2. It is one of the most successful acquisitive companies I have seen; usually lots of acquisitions is a turn-off for me, as motives can be doubtful, and outcome earnings destructive. But VP seem to have their heads well screwed on in that regard, and maintain a good discipline achieving good ROCE in general. May take time to recover completely given the double dip and the government's deficit reduction programme, but a good dividend while we wait, well covered by cash flow & earnings.

great set of results announced today given the market difficulties and starkly in contrast to their competitors - 14% operating margins,relatively low gearing, strong cash generation and all businesses making money with upside opportunities particularly in their growing overseas activity.They always seem to deliver solid numbers

Sppedy Hire saw an upturn in their market (which compares to some of VP's), though still down YOY. Reading across, looks OK for VP to me. With the latest trading statement too, and a low rating, I'm happy to hold here. Money Week has never provided much of use for me. A hotch-potch of a magazine I think, with occasional good articles. I'm surprised they had an opinion on VP at all...

The price hasn't looked back since the results despite the poor market for other construction stocks. We'll see what happens after it goes xd this week.

You'll likely get a better price then. I'm somewhat from the Buffett school: "...a great company at a good price"; and "the market timers' hall of fame is an empty room". Having said that, we all like to get a good share a bit cheaper if we can, and good luck to you.

Very good results in the circumstances. I get the sense that H2 will be weaker and there may well be a downgrade in forecasts. Having said that, I'd be happy to add on weakness.

FWIW I was in these in 2003-2006 for a nice profit, till they got more fully valued over 350p. So I think I have a feeling for the business & management that a fresh investment often lacks.
