As it pays out a litigation settlement, don’t forget Wood Group’s capital markets day later this month

A new week, a new suspension, as Joules Group (JOUL), the “true premium lifestyle brand with an authentic heritage”, announced an “Intention to Appoint Administrators and Suspension of Trading in Shares". Is it a huge surprise? Not really (and you can see now why Next plc (NXT) decided not to take a stake a few months ago). Meanwhile, and back to shares I do actually own, I see that Wood Group (WG.) is handing out $115 million in a “Settlement of Enterprise litigation case”. But the shares are only down 1% or so today.


Wood Group - a Buy (again)?

Last year we banked a more than 40%, less than 7 months, offer-to-bid gain on Wood Group (WG.) at 300.3p. That proved good timing with the shares eventually falling back towards 150p before then recovering to above 250p again. However, they are now available at a 155p offer price and are again a Buy.


Wood Group won’t re-join the FTSE 100, but that’s not the forward story...

I am sure there will be some investors who are excited to hear that Centrica (CNA) shares are back to rejoin the FTSE 100, whilst others are disappointed that ITV (ITV) and Royal Mail (RMG) shares - among others - are exiting. None of the three interest me at the moment, but I was a bit disappointed that Johnson Matthey (JMAT) shares have not been quite strong enough to rejoin. Maybe that is coming next quarter as I believe the stock is cheap (as noted last week HERE). Another stock which did not return to the FTSE 100 (and frankly I don’t think it ever will) was Wood Group (WG.) but it has made a noteworthy announcement today…
