UK Stocks and Shares and Investment tips
of the Tips: Share Recommendations to week ending 11 5 2207
has just acquired Devonport, the dockyard facility at which
all of the Royal Navy's nuclear submarines are refuelled
and refitted. The only facility of its kind in the UK, it
should provide Babcock with a guaranteed stream of work
and economies of scale with its other submarine facilities.
Babcock's shares rose on the news, there is still plenty
of value left. Buy, says The Times.
TSB has been focusing ruthlessly on cost management over
the last few years, and although growth has been modest,
dividends continue to be generous. Future growth prospects
look safe if relatively modest, and a 6 per cent yield adds
to the attraction. Buy, suggests The Telegraph.
ambitious virtual telecoms service provider has just signed
a major new contract with T Systems – the business
arm of German behemoth Deutsche Telekom. Its prospects look
good, and despite a somewhat volatile past, Vanco shares
should be a worthwhile buy, according to The Independent.
consultancy group WSP has its fingers in several pies, working
with governments and companies in property, transport and
environment sectors. Its shares have had a good run in recent
months but WSP has a strong management team in place and
seems to be doing all the right things. Plenty of potential
left – buy, says the Mail on Sunday.
catalogue clothing company specialises in clothing for larger
women – or plus-size clothing, in the jargon of the
trade. They have just announced an increase in annual pre-tax
profits of 21 per cent and are benefiting from strong growth
of their internet sales – up 51 per cent last year.
With little serious competition and a growing market sector,
N Brown is a good bet, reckon The Independent, The Times
and The Telegraph.
Southampton University-based Pharma research company is
focusing all its efforts on developing drugs to address
the underlying causes of asthma – an affliction that
causes more than 1,400 deaths a year and costs the NHS £900m
they would become extremely hot property – buy now
to keep, suggests The Telegraph.
To Let Go
bank has formerly been tipped as a buy, but following the
rise of its shares in the last six months, now might be
a good time to take profits – sell at least half your
holding, says the Mail on Sunday.
looks very much like a business that has had its day, according
to The Independent. It is hard to see any reason to invest
– whether online or on the high street, HMV is failing
to shine or gain market share. Sell.
