alanr1: Looking good until 2pm - wonder why the share price suddenly went down - anyone know why. I think it is due to short term traders - the value investors will win out in the end imo!
alanr1: As I said, only a matter of time for long term holders. In the short term traders could send the share price lower but I can wait. 9000 shares at an average price of 6.86 I have and I am confident of a good outcome. Fundamentals are good.
woodhawk: Another large contract, £115M, and the share price goes down! Another nice buying opportunity, I suppose.
alanr1: Not to worry 1spotter, I posted the links. The share price imo has now gone down too low. Not a share to short now imo.
lab305: Another contract award today. I suspect that the negative posts from 1spotter would be absent if the share was trading at £9. Share price drops seem to attract detractors !
alanr1: I don't post much these days but I have recently bought quite a few of these shares at an average of 685 - showing a loss at the moment, but that will change in time - low PE ratio and good dividend, with lots of guaranteed revenue imo. Only a matter of time imo before the share price rises again. It will happen and I am patient :-)
woodhawk: I wonder what the chances are of BAB being taken over if the share price remains so ridiculously depressed. Any likely bidders at this now 6-year low?
woodhawk: You can make a chart say whatever you want it to say. In my view this share is currently massively oversold and there will be an inevitable strong bounce, perhaps also this is a final capitulation in the long recent share price decline and it will now revert into an ascending channel. I hope it is the latter as I now have a substantial holding at an average price of less than 700p.
essentialinvestor: Better to stick with facts rather than emotion. The day before the Avincis deal announcement BAB traded around 13.50 a share. They took on over 700 million in debt to part fund the deal. The share price is now down by approx 50% since the acquisition was announced, so saying sentiment has been impacted since, is an understatement. Which of the above is incorrect ? - or is emotive subjection easier than cold hard facts. I don't go short individual stocks, and often have a very different take to FAB. On GSK he and right and I was wrong. Good luck with your holding.
alter ego: fundamentals and logic do not determine the share price. Sentiment does unfortunately and BAB have suffered from negative sentiment for some time despite evidence that their business is resilient. Sentiment does change over time and when it does BAB will be awarded the rating it deserves. Until then, a pretty decent dividend yield is some compensation.
