It's the very poor service on Greyhound. Try getting an open 'wander' ticket on Greyhound, and then experience the hours you will have to stand in line if you don't have a reserved seat! They treat their customers like cattle and lose huge opportunities to sell them food and drink, because they dare not leave the line for fear of losing their place. Typical lazy over paid directors who never go and experience their own product! A bunch of girl guides could do a better job.

Until the market has any confidence of this company delivering on any of its promises the share price will struggle. The directors must think investors have memories like sieves. We were promised: - Dividends to rise in line with inflation - Then after rights issue £50m dividend first year and then 2-2.5 times cover going forward - capital spending to peak in ye 2016, it didn't it is still rising - margins to be in double figures in medium term (2013 strategy). We are nowhere near and it's 2017. - the rubbish that we have been flogged about the fall in their biggest cost fuel being the reason for greyhounds problems. It's not, it's cheaper competitors like megabus offering as good/better service at lower costs. I still think at some point this stock could come good. The fundamentals are still pretty solid, if the could just improve margins a bit and if they could negotiate lower interest on bonds this could fly. However in my experience there are some companies that just have a habit of continually disappointing and this is one. The results are usually a catalogue of excuses, low fuel, snow, traffic, rain, strikes, unhappy drivers, not enough drivers etc etc. I guess the company is large and every year some things will go wrong but that should just be business as usual not an annual reason as to why they have missed all their targets. Yet still the directors have done very nicely out of this all....

Net debt still high but at least they are paying it down. Better to do this than pay a divi.

Results look good! As if. Miniscule profit on two and half billion of revenue.

I'm confident that this unloved sector will do extremely well too :-) One would be wise to position in value stocks right now :-)

We need Sanks back with his 9p target, he usually sends the share price into orbit :-) Unfortunately, i think he got wiped out with his 2.78 price target on AAL :(

Still a while before I'm off the gruel as a result of this one! And if only I was joking. Tim said the results this year will be better, let's see if that actually happens!

You'd think a company with two thirds of their profits in dollars could gain from the current situation!

I remember somewhere that they said that overall currency movements positives and negatives largely balanced themselves out. This is firstgroup remember, who somehow managed to turn falling oil prices (surely their biggest cost) into a negative ;)

Got to be good chance of a nice pop in the hy figures with two thirds of profits coming from the USA. Uk bus and rail would need to be performing extremely poorly to offset usdgbp strength.

Look at the rail franchises that firstgroup lost. Scotrail, Thameslink, Southern, East Coast.... All I can say is that thank goodness they did lose them as all of them are proving to be a nightmare. Personally I think a lot of companies went into recent bids with unsustainable bids that assumed everything would go in their favour. I think Firstgroup is in a lot better shape for not being involved in these deals and only renewing the GWR deal on decent terms. Maybe Corbyn's message about profits being syphoned off to private rail companies should actually be changed to losses that would have actually sat with the taxpayers being taken by private companies.

First Group bid for East Angular and lost so why would their shares go up today ? hxxp://www.railtechnologymagazine.com/Rail-franchises-operators-contracts/abellio-confirmed-as-east-anglia-operator hxxps://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/business/business-news/189828/firstgroup-upbeat-revenues-hit-rail-franchise-losses/ Is it down to disciplined bidding that they lost ? and hence market relief concerning the dividend or something I don't know There was a large UT went through over £500k and about 750k of NT sells according to Barclays stockbrokers
