wallywoo: JAF: I think this Motely fool article sums up the risks for me, but also agree it could have one hell of a short squeeze rally, if the share price turns up, hence watching: "Construction and support services group Carillion (LSE: CLLN) is one such stock which has seen its share price slump and its dividend yield soar. After a 28% fall in its share price over the past 52 weeks, the stock currently yields 8.5%. Carillion is one of the most heavily shorted companies in the FTSE 350 as hedge funds worry about its mounting debt and the uncertainty of its long-term revenues. Although the company continued to deliver steady double-digit revenue growth in 2016, investors seem increasingly sceptical that the company can continue to grow revenues at its current pace and avoid further margin pressure. The company’s balance sheet is not looking too good either, with average net borrowing rising to £586.5m, up from £538.9m in the prior year. And it’s not just the company’s growing debt levels that investors have to worry about. Carillion also has a sizeable pension deficit, which has only gotten worse as bond yields have declined following the Brexit vote last June. In its final results for 2016, the company revealed that the deficit had widened to more than £800m, which is worth nearly 90% of its market cap. As such, Carillion’s long-term dividend outlook seems uncertain. It’s likely that earnings will continue to deteriorate over the next two years, and there isn’t a great deal of financial flexibility given its weak balance sheet."
garycook: Dear Mr Denning, In the best interest of disgruntled shareholder,s would it not be in our interest,if the Board of Director,s of CLLN introduce a Share buy back to improve the dismal performance of the share price due to CLLN being Shorted by around 20% of CLLN stock held on the London stock exchange.This can be done by reducing the dividend to shareholder,s,and purchasing your own shares similar to Berkeley Holdings (BKG) has introduced to success recently.Kind Regards Gary James Cook ( Carillion Shareholder ) This is a copy of the email that I have sent to John Denning head of Investor relations at CLLN.

utyinv: Jaf, JAF19481 Mar '17 - 18:06 - 4101 of 4104 0 0 Why is everyone so concerned about what the shorters do. This is paying 8+%, Maybe, but maybe not, it surely depends what the investor paid for them....? Reading some posts highlights that many investors need the share price to get to £3+ because that is what their cost were. So purely as an example if someone bought at £3.25 and the divi is 18.45p then that makes the return 5.6%. Now let's hypothesise, if someone invested £30,000 at £3.25 then that currently puts them at a capital (paper) loss of £10,984. It's true you only crystallise a loss when you sell, but that assumption is based on the share price recovering. Some 18.45p to be paid / share in the future gives £1,703/year. If the share price does not recover then it would take 5-6 years to make up the loss from divi's. That also ignores inflation which is forecast to be 3% by the end of the year and also that the Company maintain their dividend policy. BTW, whilst Carillion is making life difficult for its investors 90% of other Stock listed on the London Stock Exchange is performing well. It's time the Board of Carillion realise that its main Performance Measure is to deliver Shareholder value to it's owners....the shareholders. That is their main prime function. Just an Opinion!
candid investor: Wow..missed a lot on here today. Well I don't subscribe to the conspiracy theory surrounding hedge funds. I believe there is a simple explanation for the shorters shorting..but the answer doesn't lie in any of the fundamentals i.e. debt order book economy etc but in the technicals which refers to the charts of the share price..apparently there was a double cross over in the charts on the 50 days and 200 days moving average or something similar that occurred which prompted the technical traders to take out huge bets...nothing to do with how well or badly the company was doing but about the signals that these rare events give and apparently these signals are very accurate normally. Saw a video specifically on it for carillion...these signals at the time pointed to downward trajectory on the shares to around £2 at the time when they were trading nearer to £4 and I believe that that was the trigger for the shorting...the reason they continue shortish get is because those signals in the share price trajectory are still consistent with downward movement which is what we are still seeing. There will be an end to it and the pattern will reverse...and when that happens the shorts will buy back and the squeeze will at some point happen. Not there yet but on video I seen it was suggested it would happen around £2...don't ask me for reference as came across it early thus morning when I couldn't sleep and can't remember where. If I do find it again I will reference it. Anyway I will keep holding and collect the dividend and wait for the technical charts to align to the fundamentals.. if you Google Carillion share price you will see graphic charts and select the 5 years one and you will see a very symmetrical downside trajectory of the share over that period and you can see that £2 is on the cards and maybe even £1.80 but that isn't aligned with fundamentals even with the debt and the pensions do very patient like me and await for £3 and get out although the guy explaining it suggested it cautious to get out at £2.75 I am not an expert at technical charting but the Harvard guys are and that I believe us what they are using...not conversations in building sites or cafes or whatever...they ignore fundamentals and only act on what the Charts are telling them.
kcsham: Few could argue that leading integrated support services firm Carillion (LSE: CLLN) has underperformed over the last few years, with earnings in decline and the share price now lingering around eight-year lows. Value investors will no doubt be circling, but I on the other hand can see even greater attractions for income seekers.£1.5bn contract winAt the start of this month, the Wolverhampton-based firm announced that its Carillion telent joint venture had been awarded a three-year contract extension (extendable to five years) to its framework agreement with BT's Openreach division. It has a potential value of up to £1.5bn. The 60:40 joint venture between Carillion and telecoms group telent will provide a wide range of services including the maintenance, extension and repair of the telephone and data network in the North East, Midlands & Wales, South West, and London & North Home Counties regions.The initial three-year extension period runs until the end of 2021 and builds on an existing eight-year relationship between Openreach and Carillion telent, during which time the latter has been Openreach's main delivery partner for the management, maintenance and upgrading of its broadband network. The new agreement could generate up to £900m of revenue over the three years, of which Carillion's 60% share would equate to £540m. The total value of the contract could increase to £1.5bn if the optional two-year extension is invoked.World Trade CentreThe news follows another joint venture win for the firm last month, when the Dubai World Trade Centre awarded a £160m contract to deliver Phase 1A6 of the One Central development in the heart of the city's Central Business District. It seems as though Carillion has started the year on a good footing, winning major contracts with prestigious clients, both at home and abroad.It could of course be argued that winning major international contracts such as these is just business as usual for a £1bn multinational facilities management and construction services company like this, and that's true. But with annual revenues set to break the £5bn threshold in 2017 and pre-tax profits likely to exceed £180m, the shares look undervalued at just 6.6 times forecast earnings.Furthermore, the depressed share price has boosted the already-healthy shareholder payouts which continue to rise with each passing year, and now boast a monster 8.3% yield. With dividend cover at almost two times forecast earnings, there's also plenty of room for future growth.Juicy dividendAnother FTSE 250 firm that likes to reward is shareholders handsomely is Inmarsat (LSE: ISAT). The satellite communication services provider has increased its shareholder payouts without fail since it was first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 2005.The company has struggled to grow its earnings in recent years and the share price has tumbled as a result, earlier this month sinking below 600p for the first time in four years. Inmarsat's shares are trading at a 33% discount to a year ago, boosting the prospective dividend yield to a juicy 6.6%.
candid investor: Hi Jaf1948...well as an investor I would want to and be entitled to know what their strategy for paying off the debt was . Why wouldn't they want to tell us ? It isn't exactly a an example take a look at Laird...their share price halved because of their problems with one of their divisions...they acknowledged them and said that they were working on a strategy...they have now said they are looking at possibility of selling it...share price is rising again...I then exited Laird after the rise and am now backing Carillion but would like to see some action on their part otherwise the share price will fall further.
kiwihope: Hi pogue, No, the level of shorting seems high, certainly compared to Kier and Interserve who have virtually none. But these things are not linear. They are all to do with investors perceptions of risk, animal spirits and the like, and you can get the camel-straw-back affect where a small change in input can cause a much larger change in output. I am really uncertain about Carillion. Part of me looks at it and thinks, these are the golden opportunities you wait for when unjustified doom and gloom presents bargains. But another part says, are the concerns justified? Comparing Carillion with Kier shows up financial differences but not as much as you would expect by the difference in share price. They seem pretty similar companies. Bothe have sales of £4-4.5bn (CLLN a little higher). CLLN has a bit higher margins giving £235m underlying operating profit (KIE is £150M). And yet CLLN has an EV of only £1.1bn vs £1.5B for KIE. So on that basis you can buy CLLN for 27% less but get 57% more profit. KIE has less debt - it's hard to be sure but roughly KIE pays about £25m in finance costs pa. and CLLN pays about £52m. The difference is 2x but, CLLN makes a bit more profit. But I think it's pretty clear that CLLN has significantly more net debt that KIE. The pension deficit is also hard to weigh up as it depends upon bond yields and CLLN and KIE have different year ends. But looking at what they pay into their pension funds, CLLN pays about 2x what KIE does. I don't know if I'm comparing apples with apples but on the face of it CLLN has a deficit of about £300m while KIE's is only £75m or so. I'm a bit confused but what we can say again, is that CLLN has a significantly larger pension deficit. So here's the choice. Ignoring the shorters (because they can't make CLLN go out of business), if you believe CLLN's debt and pension deficit is manageable, then at the present market cap, the shares are a bargain.
red_shed2000: I've been investing in stocks for approx 5 years and would like to think I have a pretty decent handle on the market and it's dynamics but one thing I hope someone can explain to me...... I understand how shorting can depress a share price, the constant selling obviously depresses the price as it happens, HOWEVER, what I can't understand is how a heavily shorted share such as Carillon can have its share price depressed on a longer time scale even though, relatively speaking, there have been no additional shorts. You can only sell the shares once, so there is in effect only one "hit", after that it's a level market again so unless the shorts are consistently adding then although they may be responsible for the original depression in share price, I don't see how they can be responsible for long term depression. Give or take, the short position in Carillion has been 20% for a while so that damage is done, anything else is market dynamics i.e supply/demand. Can someone tell me where I'm wrong? Thanks and good luck!
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 .
