Expert market evaluation
Technical analysis: The stock price has been going from one extreme to the other. The 52-week differential is higher than 90%, which makes this stock attractive to risk lovers willing to sink or swim. The stock has not made any clear signals suggesting reversal of trend.Valuation Analysis is a simple comparison of what the current market prices would represent to an acquirer of the company in relation to numerical aspects of their business. This is useful at determining whether or not the stock is a good value. However stocks that are a good value often have negative operational trends and good value on its own is not a convincing argument that a stock should be bought. Conversely stocks that are overvalued often have positive operational trends.The stock is priced at a standard market premium in relation to the sales the company generates. The company's market value represents a standard market valuation premium to its assets. The company seems to have carved out a place for themselves in their industry, but it is a place of mediocrity.This is an analysis of their business activities over the last 12 months and how this can impact the company and it's share price over the next year The company's sales have increased by up to 12% on an annual basis. The company's earnings are growing but at the unimpressive rate of less than 10%. The company's gross margin has more or less remained unchanged on a quarterly basis.

Just made a very modest purchase to see how this goes over next 30 days or so. Interesting article in newspaper on Saturday, and I have a customer who is major supplier to Speedy so very limited research. With slow upturn in UK economy might an interesting punt. Plan is load up whilst below 55p or after 30 days depending how it goes.

Do some further research pal! Understanding market cap, share issues and how the stock market takes a view on profit warnings and accounting errors. The markets are very volatile as you have seen Speedy have had £50million wiped off their stock, buy these shares cheap though and a great deal of money to be made long term. Regards the £5million which will come off their bottom line, this is 25% of their profit posted on the last set of 12 months results, based on Speedy's profit margin of just 5% how much turnover is needed to produce £5million? £100million on a 5% profit margin is your £5 million. This is a big deal and the real figures are not out yet, lets wait for the investigation. Reputation is everything when your a FTSE company, private company different and the quality of your kit and service is all that matters - do share holders give a toss of the quality of a Hilti, 500kva generator or a 6" dsl pumpn - NO! Reputation is everything when you float on the markets - good news invest when they hit rock bottom and learn from Aplant 2003, Speedy will be great once again in years to come. Good luck to you all

Daily mail reporting rumours that activist shareholder fund Toscafund has hooved up a 5% stake. Should generate a little buzz when trading resumes come Monday morning.
