|Rentokil own City Link (which I do not hold btw).
Down yet again today.|
|"falling in a Rising Market"
My thoughts too. Got the feeling either something wrong or price being manipulated. Got out at what I paid. Will keep an eye on it. Are Citylink listed anywhere?|
|Business Post falling in a Rising Market, not usually a good sign IMO.
I have had three parcels delevered by City Link over the last month,
each ordered from a different Company.
Looks like BPG are facing strong competition in the parcels business
from an improved CityLink operation imv.|
|traded on Plus also
|Seem to be a lot of MM games to shake out holders. Bid drops like a stone to trigger stop losses, offer fairly stable around 290.

|I'm seeing more vans branded UK MAIL plus a fair percentage of my mail stamped UK Mail. Bought a few after director purchase. Since then a few directors have taken up options and sold some back to company (employee trust) at 283. Nice little earner for them.
Happy to hold long term and see what happens.|
|This will only play into the hands of BPG -
Postal workers in London have voted overwhelmingly in favour of strike action in a row over jobs, threatening huge disruption to mail deliveries.
|God knows - I consider them a dam good company imo -
Chief executive Guy Buswell states: "We are now the UK's leading independent integrated postal group. Our aim now is to consolidate this position, using our highly efficient and integrated network to drive profitable revenue growth."
|why the sudden drop 330 to 240 in less than a month?|
|I'm surprised no one has purchased these guys ....|
|big concern fuel costs, facing foreign trucks and uk hauliers
using red diesel, they need to get some decent
advertising on their b'ham depot along M6,plugging uk mail
with post office ripping consumers off when incorrect postage used|
|I just bought some - only a few hundred. It's a pity the vans aren't yellow and black any more!!|
|Next move up from here imo.
A nice 10p+ final divi here to have, 3.5% - goes xd on June 25th but think there will be buyers well ahead of that imo.
|Anyone else holding?
Looking very good to me.
|Blimey, these have really been ignored. Craking results, directors buying.
2 brokers on "Buy", 2 brokers on "Strong Buy". All divisions moving onward and upward.
Looks mighty cheap imo.
|Hello anyone. I'm currently thinking of investing 1K in Business post for a medium/long term investment.The yield looks very attractive and the bottom seems to have been reached? my problem is, is the cost of running the vans, with the increase of fuel, etc,etc.......does anyone share my concerning on this? thanks.|
|Well I am and a share holder and our company has used Business Post Slough for overnight collections for some years.
In recent months how ever, after booking a collection, on 4 occasions and today again the driver simply did not turn up. Trying to contact and get through to BP Slough after 18.00, to find out why the parcels have not been collected or if the driver is running late, is a complete and utter farce.
All you find is a answer phone that holds you in a cue for 15 minutes and cuts you off, after waiting for 'customer services' to answer the phone.
Today it happened again. We finally managed to get hold of a lady called Angela at Slough who confirmed a booking was made. She said she had to speak to her boss Kelly and finally at 18.40 we were told surprise surprise 'sorry but we cannot get hold of the driver' and 'we will look into it tomorrow'! in other words, sorry your overnight parcels will not be collected today!
This is not the first time this has happened and I wonder how much business is lost by BPG because of other customers having similar experiences and change overnight carriers. We have now started to use another overnight carrier on a trial basis, alongside BPG. This kind of service and attitude maybe explains why the share price has been dropping. Rant over....................|
|Interesting position on this company. Excellent results, forward update good, Directors buying .... and yet share price falling like a stone. Like nfranks am surprised. The trading update by Rentokil (City Links)only partially explains the fall. Cannot believe that this company's fortunes will turn that dramatically, so looking to buy nearer the final results date in May.
Would expect a trading update in March. Will this be a profits warning?
|looking for a double bottom off 240 now.|
|broken back in????
A great big cup, all we need is a handle!!!!|
|simon gordon - looks like I was wrong after reading the RTO trading statement regarding a comparsion of the businesses.
I stand corrected. Explains the recent fall I suppose.
I prefer my dividends chocolate covered rather than barley.|
|I see the IC is making such a comparision...
Dividend is barley covered!!!
I think City Link is 70% B2B.|
