rcturner2: The important thing is that the business under the bonnet is performing well. The share price will follow in due course. Carillion have a very long record of raising the dividend each year and as long as they continue to do so we will all be fine here.

baticle: It's easy and quite Logical to make assumptions on the state of the construction industry in the UK given all the negative information out there, but never the less this is a good update and would suggest this has been oversold. I've been able to increase my holding here at these Low prices,Hopefully my decision will be justified and We'll see a reverse trend in the Share price.

redartbmud: RCT I understand where you are coming from, but whilst the share price is well down from the mid 300p levels, reached not so long ago, the company has remained quite robust with its' ongoing performance. How long will these shorters persist, and how far do they want the share price to go before they trouser profits and move on?

apad: FT October. Carillion has become the most popular share for hedge funds to “sell short” in the London market, according to official data, as analysts question the support services group’s lack of growth — and rising debt. Substantial bets that Carillion’s share price will fall have been disclosed by 14 funds, and figures from Markit show that more than a quarter of the company’s shares have been borrowed by speculators hoping to sell them and buy them back more cheaply, to make a potential profit. Carillion declined to comment. Some of the funds said the Wolverhampton-based group came to their attention last December — following an unsuccessful attempt to merge with larger rival Balfour Beatty — when it announced it would raise £170m by issuing a convertible bond. Seeking capital so close to the end of the year surprised the market, and led some investors to take a closer look at the company’s balance sheet. In August of this year, the company — which employs 40,000 people in the UK, US, Middle East and Africa — reported flat pre-tax half-year profits, and said it had £17bn of orders in its pipeline. But last week Andrew Gibb, analyst at Investec, told clients: “Carillion remains an enigma. On the one hand, it looks a cheap stock with one of the biggest dividend yields in the sector; on the other, it carries one of the biggest short positions in the market.” He claimed that “concerns centre on the increasing average debt position and absence of underlying profit growth over the past few years”. Some of these concerns have stemmed from the ways in which companies can control the way their financial strength is presented. At both the end of December and the end of June, when financial metrics are typically tested by lenders, Carillion reported a net debt figure of less than £200m. However, the company also disclosed that its average net borrowing between the two dates was far higher, at £487m. Some investors have also pointed to the way Carillion has used a scheme designed to help small businesses receive payment faster in order to delay the timing of its own payments, providing a temporary boost to cash flow. At the same time Carillion is owed £1.5bn by its customers — a total that has been growing faster than reported revenues and represents a larger proportion of sales than for peers, investors noted. In recent years, other support services groups including Balfour Beatty and Serco have run into trouble when the cost of servicing their long-term contracts has proved larger than anticipated. Balfour and Serco are both trying to rebuild their businesses under new management.

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.

philo124: Well, I like and still hold this share, at a loss and like the above report. However how often over the last year have we read the same sentiments? "Continued on page 94" comes from Private Eye where a report, the detail which ,most people are aware of is "continued on page page 94. However, there is no page 94. I am not dissing the article only the fact that the share price is where is and has been at this price despite the merit of the right up. Btw, I sold 50% of my IRV, since bought back at low level, because I took their annual pre-tax profit and divided it by their number of employees and it came out around 3s6p per employee, well, quite lowly anyway.

lab305: Something cathartic needs to happen here to puge the shorts and I am hoping that the results in 15 days will be at least the start of it . Once the share price gets some upward momentum I believe that it will fly as more shorts close producing a strong spike up in the share price If trading remains in line and December' s update was truthful then that is all that is required. PE of 9 with a yield of 7% covered twice the market must be having a laugh!

lab305: There is a misconception here that those entities that have taken short positions in Clln must know something. Since fear is a strong driver and people generally fear the worst this idea has gained traction both on this thread, (witness the number of negative speculation posts on middle East contracts, debt,divided cut etc. etc.) and in trading, hence the share price. Shorters must be laughing all the way to the bank. They have sowed the seed of doubt in many minds and are without doubt winning the battle. People seem to have lost sight of fundamental investing , based on PE , yield, dividend cover, etc. The favourable updates from the company chaff in the wind. When I started in 1987 I was informed that a good company was cheap if the PE was less than 15. I note that this still applies in the US. The parameters of this one are crazy. The upside is that you can buy the shares at a discount to the true value which I would put at around 360p. I now hold 75k shares in clln @ £3.03 . If I had any more money I would buy more. The low oil price and commodities prices represent the biggest stimulus to the world economies for years. Far more effective than tinkering with interest rates. Roll on March and the date when those short will be paying me 6%. (6.6% just now )

haywards26: Yes fully understood... It sounds like a plausible conspiracy theory, although we are lacking any tangible evidence. The UK press and brokers recent publications seemed to explain that the CLLN shorting was down to CLLN debt levels, potential compliance and tender pricing etc with the press making comments linked to BBY internal issues and profit warnings. It could be the press being less than accurate/reliable of course. As a BBY holder also, my thoughts on the BBY share price performance being stronger than CLLN would be - *New BBY board members are respected in the city and have strong track records (CEO & FD). *The value of PPP on the BBY balance sheet. *The market buying into the new strategy of BBY. If BBY reached 280 + I would sell my stake and purchase further CLLN shares, if they remain at this level :)

speedsgh: shouldn't expect too much from CLLN share price. seems to trade in a relatively stable range while steadily churning out the dividends. not the fastest growing dividend but healthy enough to make it one of my largest holdings. aimho.
