The problem with Rank, says The Business, is that each of its constituent parts is too big a chunk of the overall business. But none could be defined as a "must-have" asset. Last week's trading update which said profit for the year would be down slightly with bingo sales flat did not help and shares slid 2.2% in early trade. Investors, adds the paper, are tired of each trading statement giving lip service to a sale of Deluxe Film and Deluxe Media. The only reason shares stay in the 300p-plus range is because it has been enticing income investors with a 5%-plus yield and the long-awaited break-up story for the company.
