UK Stocks and Shares and Investment tips
of the Tips: Share Recommendations at 16 11 2007
you may never have heard of Wincanton, you will probably
have made many purchases from their clients. Wincanton's
logistics business services a wide range of high-street
names and it is expanding into new and value-add sectors
steadily. At 17 times earnings with a 3.8% yield, the shares
look good value for their sector - buy, suggests The Telegraph.
management company and commercial landlord Mapeley has around
£1bn invested in UK commercial property - much of
which is leased to government departments. This security
and guaranteed cashflow seems not to be enough for the market,
however, and following the publication of a 3.8% fall in
Mapeley's asset values, its shares dropped by 242p. This
seems unfair - but the shares now offer a 12% yield - buy,
says The Times.
rise in dairy prices over the last few months is not news
- although you may not realise that Dairy Crest has managed
to pass all of its 35% increase in costs onto its customers
- supermarkets et al. Dairy Crest's food business is performing
well too, and although fairly priced already, its growth
prospects make it worth a look. Buy, says The Telegraph.
online technology is helping an impressive range of blue-chip
clients to enter the world of internet marketing. While
it's still a relatively young business (and sector) the
company is making real money and shares seem cheap at under
10 times forecast 2008 earnings. Buy, says The Independent.
making steady progress against its targets, integrating
acquisitions successfully and generally operating a sound
business, Rentokil seems to offer little to new investors
at present. The only exception to this might be income investors
attracted by the company's 4.5% dividend. Too expensive
at present, says The Independent - sell.
with a new product mean that the semiconductor wafer technology
company is expecting full-year profits and turnover to be
"significantly lower" than forecast. The company's
shares have lost half their value already, but waiting around
could result in even more losses. Sell, says The Independent.
in like-for-like sales at the high street fashion retailer
overshadowed the better news that Next is on course to meet
its full-year profit forecasts. Increases in margins and
catalogue sales suggest the picture should be fairly neutral
- but fears of a slowdown appear to be overwhelming the
positive aspects. Sell, says The Times.
