speedsgh: FWIW Mr Bearbull (Investors Chronicle) has finally called time on his CLLN holding in his income portfolio... "With that in mind, my first task of 2017 has been to sell the portfolio's holding in construction-services group Carillion (CLLN) - see Bearbull 7 October 2016. The share price - at 237p - is below its stop-loss level and the disposal frees up some capital to go searching for something new in these inflated markets."

lab305: Poacher45 spot on. I have said for months that this share price is manipulated but have been criticised by other posters. It is obvious. If the shorters are so clever as some here seem to think then whatever they knew 18 months ago would have surfaced by now. The share price is so low because of them and the negative smear that their position gives the company.
poacher45: At the beginning of December UBS which had a price target of 230p buys a load of shares at a higher price than 230p. The share price was 256p the day before the update. We are nearly all agreed the update was good. Not so for UBS it immediately sells all its shares and cuts the target price to 195p. Deutsche bank joins in and they succeed in making everybody think this must have been a terrible update and the price sinks to 230p. They have put doubts in peoples minds and in my opinion manipulated the share price for there own ends. Once again I must state this is only my opinion.
poacher45: From the Times Shares in its FTSE 250 parent company have fallen by more than a fifth over the past 12 months, rewarding short-sellers that have bet against the company. There are 16 investors holding a combined 21.26 per cent short position, according to regulatory figures. This is to do with the 170,000,000 loan stock which I think is do to be repaid in 2019. The investors are only being paid 3%. So why have the institutions lent them the money? Because Carillion gave them a sweetener. It could be considered a call option if the share price goes above £3.95 they still can covert this loan stock for an ordinary share at £3.95. However at the moment with the share price standing at £2.35 it has to be considered a put option because if the loan stock was repaid today the investors could buy new shares for £2.35. This is my understanding of the situation.
kcsham: Carillion have been shorted for years and the short accelerated since early 2015 and the share price was coming down from 350 to 236.5 to date over the same period of time.When a company like Carillion has a solid fundamentals (in my opinion) and its share price is suppressed by shorters to its years low, I believe it is an opportunity to buy. Don't everybody agree buy it low and sell it high? Of course, it takes time and courage to take such an action to grow the profit of ones investment.
kcsham: RC - I won't say I know the bond price of Carillion inside out. However, I am sure the link below will give you a pretty good idea about it. worked in the construction and design profession for my whole working life and seldom invested in a construction company. Two members of my family had been working for Carillion for a year or two. So, I know Carillion is running by a competent management team. I am attracted to the pretty solid development of the company in the past years, the recent depressed share price (thanks to the shorters). and steadily growing high yield. I jumped in twice recently to buy 2 lots of Carillion shares at a similar price of around 231.2 (I did not wait for the support line price of 220 as most people believe). I am a investor and not a trader, I generally hold good shares for few months to few years and often have a reasonable returns for my investment.I don't believe Carillion's share price will shoot up overnight but I believe it will recover shortly in the next few months or a year. One day the shorters will get what they deserved and leave. It is all IMHO.
rcturner2: CLLN does not have to fail for the shorters to make money. They are betting on some at present not understood bad news hitting the share price hard. Shorters do not win every time, but they are always make me nervous as they win often enough for it to be dangerous to go against them. Remember they know far more than the average investor who holds 5000 shares in an ISA. I strongly suspect that the shorting is around the pension deficit and debt situation. For example, I would be willing to bet that no one on this thread knows the current bond prices for CLLN, whereas you can be sure the shorters know the bond position inside out.
lab305: How to Prevent your Shares Holdings from being Shorted Q.: Why does short selling reduce share prices? Share A: To short-sell a share speculators have to borrow the shares in the first place. Once they have done this they need to sell them in the market, and if this is done en-masse it can push the share price of a company down in the short term as there are more sellers than buyers in the market. Hedge funds specialising in short selling may also cause panic in the market by selling lots of shares in a company as other shareholders become worried about the share price plunge. Some companies will blame short sellers for dramatic declines in their stock price. The practice is so controversial that bans on short selling are not unknown and during the last credit crisis in 2008, traders were not allowed to short-sell certain banks and financial institutions. Most borrowers and lenders of shares are institutions, brokers, etc. Mere mortals can borrow indirectly by using Spread Bets or Contracts for Difference. If you go short, you are effectively borrowing shares to sell for money; if you go long, you are effectively borrowing money to buy shares. Depending on the balance between shorts and longs, the company offering these products may choose to cover the risk by borrowing real shares to sell or by investing money to buy real shares. Q.: What can you do to prevent your shares holdings from being shorted? A: Now what can the average personal investor do to stop their own shares being shorted, as believe me your own broker, if approached, WILL sell your own shares that they hold on your behalf as a nominee account. There are two things you can do, the first is to certificate them but this is not obviously to everyone’s advantage but the alternative solution is simple. All you do is to phone your broker and put an order in saying that you wish to place your shares for sale at, for arguments sake, double today’s price. As they are 'on order' they cannot be lent out by your broker and in turn you are reducing the amount of 'free shares' out there that can be used for shorting purposes. And don't forget to move your limit order up when the price starts to recover, then, that way your shares can't be shorted - not much but helps .
lab305: Just pointing out as I am sure that some of you know already the fine balance that exists in the share price and the extent to which short sellers are in complete control of the stock. On the short interest tracker site the maximum short interest level was reached around 13 October at 21.62%. This exactly corresponds with a share price low of 241.1. On 19 October the short position had dropped marginally to 20.76% , however the share price had risen to 252.8. That's an 11p rise on a .86% drop in shorts. Now I know that the short figures may not be exact and you cannot extrapolate along the whole 20% , but if ever a share had potential this is it.
lab305: The rubbish talked on this board is breathtaking. The share price is where it is simply because around 14 hedge funds ,mostly US based, have decided to short it. Carillion's value has not dropped because it is performing badly or because of a deficit in it's pension fund. The concerted attack by the hedge funds amount to a self fulfilling prophecy. What we are left with now is a well run company making increasing profit with a PE of around 8. Meanwhile the armchair pundits on here speculate on over technical reasons on why this is so and conjure up excuses not to invest . They imagine that the hedge funds must know something negative that we don't. It is far more likely that these funds are using Clln as a bellwether and an insurance policy against a downturn in the UK. Brexit would be another reason. The fundamentals of this company are good , PE is very low and yield excellent which is covered twice. The icing on the cake is that should the hedge funds decide to take their profit there will be an exponential rise in the share price As there is not much liquidity in the stock the share price could easily exceed £4. My position is that I now have 127000 shares and still buying on weakness. Meanwhile 6.8% sure beats .5% from the bank.
