of the Tips: Share Recommendations at 19 10 2007
recruiter SThree has endured a savage attack on its share
price in recent months - down from 525p in July to just
over 300p at present. This seems unjustified - its business
is sound and even if the economy takes a dip, companies
IT-staffing requirements are likely to continue. A good
buying opportunity, reckons the Mail on Sunday.
company Cookson has just completed raising funds to take
over one of its major competitors, Foseco. The deal should
result in considerable cost savings and increase Cookson's
exposure to the lucrative aerospace and heavy transportation
markets - buy, suggest The Times.
makes technology that helps surgeons with bladder and uterine
operations. It may be unglamorous but it's certainly profitable
and current expansion plans mean that Gyrus' management
believe they can move from the FTSE 250 to the FTSE 100
in the next few years. Their shares look cheap at the moment

business process provider to the automotive insurance industry.
Despite strong growth, its shares are only valued at 14

London-based home builder Telford homes is riding high at
present - its focus on brownfield regeneration sites has
worked well in recent years. Despite this, Telford's shares

offer an attractive 3% yield. Buy, says The Telegraph.

US-based executives, following poor performance. One argument

to properly embrace the market for on-demand software -
delivered over the internet.
software is still largely delivered in shrink-wrapped boxes,
a declining channel. Time will tell how serious the problems
are, but The Telegraph believes now is the time to sell.
Gibbons, one of the world's leading stamp dealers, believes
that stamps should be considered serious investments - on
a par with fine wine, art and even stocks and shares. Regardless
of this, the company has had a good run recently and its
shares currently sit at 17 times 2008 forecast earnings.
Too dear, says The Telegraph.
