Hi all,

On Friday the CEO of Melrose issued a profits warning and not suprising the price of the shares fell, therefore I have two questions:-

1/ we will the price continue to fall and the 'bottom' price expected to be reached.
2/ should this share be considered a 'hold' or 'sell' -- I have not considered a buy for too many questions

I am interested for although I do not hold, I am a member of anvestment club that do hold MRO, who tend to hold for a long time.

all replies would be gratefully received

I wouldn't buy or sell on a market reaction to bad news unless the impact was at least a 40% drop and then, only if the position has stabilised. Even then, recovery can be a long wait. Recent events at Cape and Lamprell prove that point. Big order books, corrective action but the bounce hasn't yet happened. Indeed the bad news may not be over for Melrose, both Cape and Lamprell suffered a 'double dip' as they served up the bad news as first a starter, then a main course a few weeks later. My advice: do nothing unless and until the price drops below 180p and then only if the long-term prospects are still good.
