not what I expected

Not the kind of reaction you expect to see after a company makes an announcement for a 45% increase in HEPS. I guess we had much higher EPS priced in, and the modest 18% forecasted gains are not enough to satisfy the punters.

Well, interim heps were up 29%, second half between -12% to +2.5% given yesterday's guidance. So, yes not what the market seemingly expected on a PE of 21x.

I'm surprised that we haven't seen an earnings lift from the weak rand, this was a bit disappointing
