I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Oddly, shares in Laura Ashley (ALY) crashed before they were suspended at 10.32 AM on news that administrators were to be appointed at the PLC and trading subsidiaries. But as this is the London stockmarket there can be no suspicion of any insider dealing can there? No sniggering at the back please.
