|Just joined the party this morning at 826. Cheered that DB are buying!|
|Hope so, although I put in place a cheeky limit order for the second half of my top up. I can't believe a fairly large company can halve in price over 3 months, on badish, but not terrible news?|
|All corrupt ! Big bounce next week|
|DB are back?|
|I've topped up with half the money allocated to the job. Will see where we are in Monday..|
|Some buyers came in at around £8 as expected, but let's see if it holds. Not very convincing...|
|Looks like it is in a hurry to get back to that 780p support line.
I guess the question is....will if find support at that point?
Normally by the time a stock has shed 2/3 of its value the divi is well over 6% so it provides support but AGK divi is still not large enough to provide yield support so I guess it could overshoot on the down side.|
|Isn't that what normally happens with stocks that are actively traded by algos/bots?|
|At some point Yes. But this is coming down hard and fast...|
|Schlumberger said this morning at its Q3'16 results, that it has seen "increased fracturing activity on land in North America" - which hopefully should have a positive read-across for Aggreko's oil/gas/refining rental and power divisions.
|Agreed. I hope they take their time, as I don't have cash to top up just yet...|
|overdone here after DB dump, chartists may take it to 800p, due for bounce afterwards|
|My thoughts exactly zcaprd7.
By the way, any boost from US shale drilling would easily reverse today's slide. Indeed last night Halliburton, the US oil services group, said "it was benefitting from increased activity in North America, and expected a continued rise in drilling in the region." CEO Dave Lesar adding “Things are getting better for us and our customers.”|
|The Turkish crowd seem to be a completely difference animal to aggreko. I'm not quite sure the broker knows what he's talking about. Especially to equate market size to power deployed, they deploy floating power stations for heavens sake? That's like comparing aggreko to Drax...|
|Remember too that Aggreko is a favourite for Algos/Bots & other computer trading programs - hence the large daily swings. IMO, if there's a buy rating slapped on the stock tomorrow, then the shares would rebound - perhaps even by a similar amount.
Long term though earnings will smooth out the volatility|
|Aggreko has a fundamental problem which is to do with the bribery act.
A lot of their potential business is in corrupt countries and since the UK dramatically tightened laws and ramped up penalties it makes it very difficult for the likes of Aggreko to win new business without having the ability to bribe the relevant officials.
I recently started working for a large industrial multinational in a middle management level role and the amount of online and offline training I was required to take concerning compliance is unbelievable considering I am never going to be in a position to award any work to outside contractors.
If it returns to the 780 area again I would look to take a stake but not before then.|
|Sigh. Looks like I have to top up again. Retest of £8?|
|Perhaps they should merge?|
|Down we go again. What a dog!|
|Nice announcement today regarding dupont... Wish I hadn't visited their website though - every other advert is for hiring a generator now!|
|Yes, but a lot of volume today, highest for a year...|
|Hope and reality are 2 different things|
|I would have thought a centralised deal across all of aggreko's generators in the UK, to utilise their client's downtime, would be more appropriate. But not enough to justify a 5% share price increase. I'm hoping it's corporate action. I've been waiting for them to split the company in two... Perhaps a trade sale.|
|Yes - so more opportunities to rent them out?|
