Sunday Newspaper Share Tips 2015

Newspaper Share Tips - February

Here is a selection of juicy share tips for your consideration - with a pinch of salt of course - and some charts to see how they ahve been doing recently.

Daily Mail

Midas says Buy Grainger shares (GRI) - they were 250p last spring but are now 194p due to fears re. housing market and political uncertainty as we approach a General Election in the UK. Reaction overdone. Practically all its homes are reasonably priced and even its London properties are on average less than £500,000. Trading statement may reassure nervous investors.

Sunday Telegraph

Jim Slater recommends AIM shares that you can invest in without having to pay inheritance tax, provided they have been held for 24 months at the time of death. They might be interesting of course even if you don't plan on dying anytime son.

Clinigen - he bought a few more at 500p

And has also recommended Breedon Aggregates and CVS Group.

They should do well in the long term (so it might be worth waiting to see if they fall back a bit first).

Breedon Aggregates at 47p - it is a favourite of star fund manager Neil Woodward, price to earnings ratio (p/e), is high at 25, but next year’s spectacular prospective growth rate is more than 30pc and very good long-term prospects.

CVS Group at 472p - another of Peel Hunt’s 17 top growth picks, - operates veterinary practices and diagnostic businesses, pet crematoria and an online pharmacy - excellent free cash flow which it often uses to make acquisitions to increase its network of surgeries. Shares have a high p/e ratio of 21, but forecasts of strong growth are likely to be revised upwards as “like-for-like” sales were up by 8.7pc in the first 4 months of their financial year.

Sunday Times
