UK Stocks and Shares and Investment tips
of the Tips: Share Recommendations
Oil services company Cape appears to be on course to return
to growth later this year. Contract win prospects add to
the appeal. The Daily Telegraph rates Cape a buy.
The Spirit Pub Company has recently demerged from its sickly
sibling, Punch Taverns. Since then, the two companies have
continued on opposite paths – Punch sinking and Spirit
rising. Buy, says The Independent.
Emerging Markets Investment Trust
Templeton has a quarter of its assets in Hong Kong and China
and is down 18% on its 2011 peak of 672p. According to The
Daily Telegraph, that's enough for them to be upgraded from
hold to a buy.
Housebuilder Berkeley is run by Tony Pidgley, whose abilities
and judgement are highly rated. During the housing downturn
he has boosted his land bank and decided to return £1.7bn
to shareholders between 2015 and 2025. Both of these decisions
have proved popular with the market and prospects for longer-term
growth appear good, says The Times.
Cineworld specialises in operating 3D cinemas and operates
a high proportion of the UK's 3D screens. It is now expanding
into Spain and its early investment in 3D technology looks
set to pay off. Buy, says Investors Chronicle.
Ones to Avoid
Omega Insurance has been in a series of takeover bids and
management have admitted that they are still 'in discussions'.
Omega was first approached by Canopius in September 2010
and its share price has sunk ever since. Avoid, says The
Glencore's record-breaking IPO made headlines earlier this
year. So with on-target earnings, is now a good time to
invest in the commodities giant? Not for retail investors,
says The Daily Telegraph's Questor, who reckons that Glencore's
impenetrability makes it unsuitable for small investors.
