UK Stock Market News Today – 24-May-2018
Shoe Zone (SHOE) – 172p – £86.0m – PER 10.2
Interim Results For The 6 Months To End March 2018 – Says first half in-line but based on the forecasts, I am not so sure it is.
The low PER and great yield may tempt some. I will remain Neutral for now.

I am Long here and will remain so for now.
Alliance Pharma (APH) – 89.2p – £424.1m – PER 18.8

Growth was already forecast to slow here and this probably won’t help. I will remove this from my Watchlist and go Neutral for now.
StatPro (SOG) – 180.5p – £118.5m – PER 23.9
AGM Statement And Trading Update – In-line with Fixed Income module to be launched in Q3 2018, as planned.
Forecasts look great here and any break above 190p would surely be positive, it’s on my Watchlist at that level (yes, to consider buying the break-out).
Sportech (SPO) – 83.4p – £155.8m – PER 32.3
AGM Statement – Not sure what they’re trying to say here.
