The Times (United Kingdom) has an article from October 8, 2004: Larger capitalisation shares: Reed Elsevier, GSK, SABMiller, Kingfisher By Nick Hasell REED ELSEVIER gave up some of this week's gains on concerns that a slowdown in revenue growth in the publisher's science division could leave its shares looking expensive. In a circular entitled Science Friction, Citigroup suggests the Anglo-Dutch media group is at a "pivotal moment" in its history. Rogan Angelini-Hurll, an analyst, suggests Reed has been one of the best performers in its sector over the past four years, having outpaced the FTSE all-share index by 47 per cent. But the US broker now believes pricing pressure within science publishing could trigger a short-term de-rating of the shares, similar to their performance between 1997 and 1998... ... It also points to the unwinding of "bundled" deals with academic institutions, which, together with the electronic shift, has seen price inflation slow from 7 per cent to 5.5 per cent over the past two years. See the rest of the article at <http://business.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,8211-1301731,00.html> Unfortunately, I've been unable to find the Citigroup report itself on the Web.
