HADEN MACLELLAN, the process engineers, is tipped by Albert E Sharp, who now rates the shares a "buy" at current prices after this week's profit warning, which was blamed on accounting problems in the paint division.
ORANGE, THE high-flying telecom company, is now a "sell" according to brokers CSFB, concerned that the shares have been over-hyped in the recent rush for telecoms stocks. The shares have come off the top but have still tripled from their low point in the past year.
