Nice to see the P/E multiple coming down here and more importantly the PEG falling below 1 for year 2016 and after which shows the company is in GROWTH MODE. Brokers certainly like the story.

Perhaps this is why it fell:

"Basic and diluted adjusted earnings per share (excluding acquisition adjustments and reorganisation costs) was previously stated as 18.7p and 18.4p respectively on an underlying earnings of £71.4m. A mathematical error in calculating underlying earnings added back instead of eliminating from the calculation the £7.5m post-tax impact of the fair value changes on contingent consideration, described in Note 6 of the Interim Financial Statements. As a consequence, underlying earnings has now been amended to £56.4m,"

It was even part of the financial summary:

Adjusted earnings per share (excluding acquisition adjustments and reorganisation costs) were 35% higher at 18.7p (H1 14/15: 13.9p)

So wasn't 35% higher but only 4%.

Not very impressive.

A good RNS -

Therefore surprised to see the fall to almost 520p. There seems to be support at this level and it would appear to be a good opportunity to buy at or close to the bottom.

I added some more (not the million shares) while it was down. With today's movement and all being well should see this gap back up to 600p+ next week.

RE: Worth a tenner?

Even so, this sell off does seem a bit overdone. It was down nearly 25% yesterday from the close prior to the update. Two large trades of around a million shares each snuck in at 537.5p before the close yesterday so I guess someone is seeing this downturn as a buying opportunity?
