    CLH Collection House ran up to $1.90 or so the other day and we heard that a possible t/o was on its way.

    Looks like a buy at these levels after coming off considerably.

    Recent buying in Collection House shares by its directors have suggested something is looking good.
    The Financial Review has just recently made a brief mention that it is a take over target for Sweden's International "Intrum Justitia" see> http://www.intrum.com/ This can be backed up by a new Substaintial Shareholder announcement as released 30-Jul-2003 09:18 CLH Becoming a substantial holder - The new substaintial shareholder is Mr. Bo Sven Goranson and associated entities. Bo Swen Goranson is a non executive directior of Collection House and his Father, Mr. Sven Goranson founded Intrum Justitia in 1923 and it was then subsequently taken over by the son.

    Take Over speculation + Directors buying large parcels of shares! Mmmmmmmmm You don't need to be Sherlock Holmes to figure this one out!
