M&S have been in dire financial straits for sometime now and no doubt this is part of their restructuring programme - they certainly need it to inject some life in to their share price!
I have been waiting to buy Orange stock for some time. Having been a customer for over a year I have come to understand why they are number one for customer service in this country. I have always felt that they lead the way in terms of innovation and value for money. Furthermore their marketing campaigns are by far the most creative and impressive. There is only one downside to being an Orange subscriber - they have a very limited choice of handsets. The stock has been soaring recently after reports that they have been picking up subscribers at the expense of Vodaphone. They are currently trading at over £10 a share whilst there has been the opportunity to get in at roughly £8. Unlike Vodaphone, they are not in profit as yet, but I am picking Orange ahead of Vodaphone and BT Cellnet.
Having read many comments about VSTR, I feel that Orange has many similar qualities and am looking forward to purchasing both. VSTR is also steaming ahead - I would love to buy but can't bring myself to buy at the year's high.
If I can give you anymore information about Orange,
please let me know.

Best wishes,
