Taking Stock

High-flying Kingfisher Leisure, running the McClusky's theme bars, fell 20p after it said increased administration costs and the opening of a Rank leisure complex at Southampton will take their toll. Interim profits are pounds 362,000, against pounds 290,000. The shares, now 173.5p, were floated last year at 160p.

Ex-Slater Walker man Ian Wasserman has picked up 1.8 per cent of cash shell Dalkeith Inns at 21p and 23p. He says he has no developments in mind but is awaiting corporate action. The shares held at 21.5p

Waste Recycling, run by David Williams, should have made profits last year of pounds 5.3m and is in line for pounds 9.4m this year, say stockbroker Redmayne Bentley. It regards the shares, 350p, as offering long-term value.
