VIJAY ANAND | EXECUTION NOBLE
Our position on Autonomy is a ‘hold’. It had a disappointing end to 2010, in terms of both results and acquisitions. Now investors’ focus will be on its outlook for 2011.

TOM GIDLEY-KITCHEN | CHARLES STANLEY
It is telling that Autonomy hasn’t issued a pre-results trading update. This means it is probably in line with its downward-revised forecasts. Some people are expecting it to reveal an acquisition but I doubt it.

ANTHONY MILLER | TECHMARKETVIEW
Autonomy has unveiled a lot of contract wins over the last few weeks and we think this shows its focus on winning these big contracts is the right strategy at the right time.
