AMSTRAD's share price reversed its downward trend last week at stones that the consumer electronics company is to go into partnership with a satellite broadcasting consortium next year Recent weeks have seen City confidence in Alan Sugar's company at a low ebb with some observers seeing trouble ahead in Amstrad s reliance on the uncertain PC market Analyst Phillips and Drew has been issuing sell recommendations on Amstrad shares all summer, and wasn't impressed by the 10p rise in the share price last Tuesday, prompted by the satellite news "Satellite TV is something that Amstrad has been looking at for a long time." said P&D's Ruth Keattch "We see Amstrad running into sales problems in 87/88, because computer sales are beginning to come under pressure.

Alan Sugar needs to diversify, say analysts >>

"We would like to see the company diversifying into something now. and we were hoping that Amstrad would have announced a move into white goods. But it does appear to have missed opportunities.” she added Amstrad itself cast some doubt on the satellite collaboration by issuing the following statement: “Amstrad is watching the market for satellite television reception, and if this market ever becomes popular resulting in high demand for receiving equipment it is not unreasonable to assume Amstrad will have an extreme interest in becoming a major vendor"

Recommendations described as "more bullish" than those of Phillips and Drew were being sent out last week by analysts at Barclays de Zoete Wedd and Chase, among others, and Amstrad shares continued to rise dunng the week.

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
