What Does G4S's News Tell Us?

LONDON -- As G4S  (LSE: GFS.L  )  hits the headlines again today, The Motley Fool's Jill Ralph discusses the recent news from the security firm that two directors are departing, but CEO Nick Buckles has retained his job in the wake of the Olympic Games fiasco. Jill gives her take on what the future may have in store for G4S and how it may affect rivals such as MITIE Group  (LSE: MTO.L  ) .

G4S has work to do, and the uncertainty surrounding the government's willingness to give the firm another shot could be an alarm bell for shareholders. So if you're looking to invest but want a bit more peace of mind, maybe Neil Woodford can help. The legendary City fund manager has thrashed the FTSE 100 during the five, 10, and 15 years to 2011 by betting on lowly rated blue chips. If you want to know what shares he's currently favoring, you need to get hold of "8 Shares Held By Britain's Super Investor."
