Investors Chronicle has just published this article on Weir (LON:WEIR) and the "travails" (perhaps) of its CEO, Keith Cochrane. This is a business working in sectors which are highly cyclical. The thrust of the article is that it has been hard on the CEO to see his total pay reduced by three-quarters as a result of his bonuses and options, from £4.73m in 2011…

ITV (LON:ITV) is due to isssue its interim results on Wednesday, July 27.  This is a stock I have been following for quite some time and which I see now as an attractive investment opportunity.  Should there be a note of caution in the outlook statement on Wednesday with respect  to UK short-term advertising revenues, as some analysts have hinted, and that leads to the…

The Financial Reporting Council has just published its decision and report in the case of the conduct of the CFO of a company that collapsed several years ago, a company called Healthcare Locums. I had been a shareholder but sold long before it went belly up. Here's the link: It makes for very interesting reading. I'm sure we would all have our own lists of…

Paul, I did not use the word "rubbish", nor did I imply your report was "rubbish". I do not comment in that way and that remark is thus completely uncalled for but, unfortunately, of the kind now quite commonplace on this board, You thus prove one of the points I was making so I thank you for that, at least.(Edit:  Anyway, I really can't be…

The new format being trialed today is very poor, imo, being simply what anyone can glean themselves from very cursilory scanning the day's RNS. Apart from that, the interminable squabbling on the board is becoming insufferable. Unless the mess is taken in hand, I can see more people simply giving up on Stockopedia.

If there is to be a 25% discount on new subscriptions, perhaps the same discount ought to be extended to people like myself who have been paying the full subscription for years. A kind of loyalty bonus so that we do not continue to subsidise people who have already been getting a valuable freebie for perhaps quite some time. As we all know, freebies for…

I shouldn't think Photo-Me International (LON:PHTM) would need to buy up existing operations, they would not need to invest capital that way. In bigger towns, there may well be some street locations for reasons of parking and accessibility but they would, imo, likely be existing shop locations (really any kind of shop) rented by them or by others and then fitted out anew. There would,…

Snoo, Photo-Me International (LON:PHTM) do not buy up existing laundry operations. Instead, they put their machines into locations such as hypermarket or supermarket car parks or next to carwash units, locations with existing high footfall but requiring no high capital investment. People can load in their washing, then go and do their shopping or fill up their car while the wash is done. The machines…
