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.
rcturner2: In recent years 3 similar companies to Carillion have gone bust, Mouchel, Rok and Connaught and a fair few others have suffered too (have a look at the IRV share price chart). Connaught was a FTSE 250 company when it went bust.
edmundshaw: bond yields turning up will be good news for all pension deficits; the companies with the biggest ones (when, as here, factored into the share price) also have the most to gain on that upturn... The UK 10yr bond yield was around 0.66% on the 6th September, and is currently 1.087%, having risen fairly steadily for nearly a month. It bottomed at around 0.52% in mid August. Guessing the future may be generally tricky, but I cannot see why yields should not continue to recover to something reasonable as foreign investors shed sterling assets...
speedsgh: Article by Mr Bearbull on the Investors Chronicle website today analysing his current holding in CLLN. Putting the bludgeon in - HTTP:// [subscription required] The article starts: "Putting a value on a company is a vital part of the investment game. How can you decide whether a share price is cheap or dear without making a stab at its value? Yet to say 'stab' can flatter the process. Sometimes it's more like flailing in the dark with a blunt instrument. Still it's got to be done." ...and ends: "...I needn't be in a hurry to sell the income fund's holding in Carillion. But put it this way, unless something really nice - and unexpected - happens, it's the next out."
cwa1: Carillion wins GBP350 million support services contract for Nationwide Building Society Carillion has been awarded a seven-year contract to provide facilities management services for Nationwide Building Society. This contract is expected to be worth approximately GBP350 million and has the potential to be extended for a further three years. The award builds on an existing partnership of nearly nine years during which Carillion has been providing facilities management services for Nationwide.
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?
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.
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.
