|Ever since Capita started to have problems I sense the market seems to have had a downer on bab. Not unsound imo but definitely unloved.So any perceived bad news and the size tens are out.
|I've popped a few into a SIPP.
'Unloved' is OK. 'Unsound' isn't. There's an old saying that if bad news doesn't send a price down much, then its probably the bottom. Although I've been caught out by that when the company itself is unsound ! Vice-versa always seems to work though, especially on shares that are on high p/e's.|
|Well the directors seem to have some confidence?
Yes bab has been pretty much unloved for sometime now and I am looking for the catalyst too. Needle in a haystack probably!
|It is always difficult to know what has been going on behind the scenes and exactly why the contract is terminating.
The current price has been tested several times now so if it holds I wouldn't be too concerned, equally as I have mentioned before I am not sure what is going to be the catalyst to get the share price moving up again.|
|Bad news hammered this am. Over done imo.
|Unsure how the share price would react today, listened to the webcast and Q&A,
it sounded very good to me, but short term sentiment is poor on BAB.|
|Mr market thinks so too.
|Very impressive webcast.|
|Presentation and webcast on the BAB investors site for anyone interested.
Edit, having just tried listening to the webcast that is unavailable as of yet, hopefully later.|
|Interesting to see if today's presentation has any impact on the share price Hopefully upwards.
|DG, agree, not the best timed.
It may also be why when asked about potential acquisitions on the call
the CFO stressed organic growth, with the possibility of small bolt ons.|
|My guess is results announcement will have some effect but I feel there is also an overhang from the oil price collapse!! This coincided with the rights issue for the acquisition of Bond Helicopters (who undertake rig operations) at which point the price started the descent from its peak of 1300p. Given that rigs still need to be serviced and they also operate a lot of helimed services, this does not seem to be reflected.|
|well I took my first stake yesterday at 900.
Not sure what the catalyst will be to drive it up but equally I don't see much more downside from here.|
|Added another 200 shares, last of the big traders ).
Just not brave enough to add in quantity here, however the long term looks
positive to me.|
|But body language and confidence is important.
I'm sure the BOD is not happy with the share price
|top, not sure I would expect too much on the 14th, it's just giving some
detail on the new business structure, trading has been covered in the latest
statement, but may be wrong.|
|Hopefully the analysts will be impressed - if not I will reduce my holding by 75%. There lots of other good shares out there. But not dty - ditched those this morning!!!!!!!!!
|Looks like we havw just been treated to a big bull trap.Nothing to do now but to wait and see market reaction on the 14th of March.|
|Ah, right )
The Q&A is worth a listen on the recent update, CFO hosts the call.|
