Compass Loses Its Bearings, But It's Still worth Keeping an Eye On

2020-03-18 08:27:21

Hello, Share Shapers. These are peculiar times indeed. A company that I’ve oft praised on this website has dropped a heck of a lot in value, and yet it’s still one of the best run and reliable British blue-chip companies of all time. This sad virus crisis has turned everything on its head but most sensible analysts expect most shares prices to recover totally eventually, as they nearly always do after disaster...

2019-12-02 08:38:42

Hello, Share Smashers. Despite the uncertainties of a Trump administration, the American economy is doing well. You can tell that by the number of British companies which are doing so-so in Blighty, but which are making increasing profits in the USA. This, of course, helps British share prices to bubble along...

2019-05-16 08:12:25

Hello Share Chargers. There’s one stable contributor to my portfolio which I will probably stick with through thick and thin. However its interim results incline me to think that ‘thick’ will reign for some time yet. Compass Group (CPG) is one of the biggest caterers in the world...


Compass Points to Rising Confidence, Especially as its Profits Grow Faster than Revenue

2018-11-21 01:03:35

Hello Share Chewers. One of those giant companies which seem to move at the pace of a lazy snail is Compass Group (CPG). Since I can remember, which admittedly ain’t too far these days, the stock has been teetering on 1700p. I don't know why this progress is niggardly because the company seems to continue its success story.


Compass Shares Could Head North A Lot Faster, Once the Fundamentals are Appreciated

2018-02-12 01:07:14

Hello, Share Scrummers. When the going gets tough out there in the Big City, as now, the sensible approach is to buy shares in companies which may be hit by the general situation, but which seem as strong as an ox and could be among the first to bounce back in the almost inevitable rally.


Compass Points the Way to Greater Growth, Especially in the USA

2017-12-04 01:12:35

Compass Could Show the Way, Should Four Year's Hard Work Goes Down the Drain

2016-11-08 01:12:58

Hello Share Slurpers. After four years’ dedicated slog, I have finished my blockbuster crime/horror novel. So I've been sending it, one at a time, to literary agents. This is a scary moment, as it could mean four years down the pan. However, I have not made a great deal of money out of my shares over the last four years, either.

2014-10-07 13:00:38
