Investment Stocks and Shares Tips

Informa - Buy at 436p - the company is well-prepared for life after the downturn - strong balance sheet and net debt was down a tenth to £779m at year end. Momentum and cash generation are good, and Informa is in a good position in growth areas such as emerging and digital markets.

Pendragon - Buy at 23.5p - Pendragon still has net debt of £325.5m, and despite passing on dividend, its prospects look a lot rosier than when its future was in doubt.

Morgan Sindall - Hold at 692.5p
