Midas Share Tips
Stadium Group shares are 651/2p, but the shares should rise as Brayshaw delivers on his promises.  A new CEO is likely to be in place by summer, but Brayshaw will ensure there is a continued focus on growth. Buy.

Animalcare shares closed at 156p on Friday so they are moving in the right direction since Wildridge took the helm. Stick with the business as the new strategy evolves.

Lo-Q shares are up to 151p and should continue to reward patient investors. Hold.
