UK Stocks and Shares and Investment tips
of the Tips: Share Recommendations at 14 Dec 2007
company Asterand obtains human tissue samples from hospitals
and sells them to drug companies for testing purposes. It
may sound a grisly business but its CEO believes the company’s
value could rise from its present £6m to £100m
in the next five years. Shares are at just 6p currently
– risk a few quid, suggests the Mail on Sunday.
– or vehicle tracking to you and I – is proving
a successful business for small tech company Cybit. Tracking
commercial vehicles is a fast-growing sector and Cybit has
a 20% share of the UK market. Considering that only 3% of
commercial vehicles are tracked at present, there is a lot
of potential for growth. Modest P/E means that Cybit might
be worth a look, says The Telegraph.
know how frustrating it is to wait in a whole day for a
service engineer to call – not knowing when he’ll
arrive. ServicePower has a system that allows engineers’
visits to be scheduled in 1-2 hour slots – and already
has several big contracts. Try your luck at 15p/share, says
the Mail on Sunday.
solar electricity generation specialist has fulfilled its
flotation promises – yet its shares are currently
at a discount to their September flotation price. Earnings
forecasts for this year are up 20% from six months ago and
the company has just won a large, five-year contract. Worth
buying on weakness, suggests The Times.
Bellway currently looks amazingly cheap – at just
6.4 times forecast 2008 earnings. There’s a tasty
5.2% yield on offer for 2008 and it looks like the market
may have overreacted – buy, says The Independent.
speculation over a possible buyout of Fidelity Partners
(owners of 65% of Colt) by AT&T has propelled the share
price up 15%. While the buyout might make sense, there isn’t
any concrete reason to believe it will happen. Sell now
while the price remains high, says The Independent.
favourite Capita is adamant that its sector is still extremely
immature – with much further to go. Some of their
recent contract wins seem to support this theory, but this
week’s trading statement failed to mention any new
contracts. Capita shares are also far from cheap –
at 24 times forecast 2008 earnings – so now may be
a good time to reduce your exposure to this business. Sell,
suggests The Independent.
