Who cares, a fairly large trade means very little.

Two rail franchise competitions coming up in competition with Stagecoach . Not sure if there are any other opinions but surely politically FGP have a great advantage with the partnerships they have formed . With Brexit coming the government will surely want the extra investment coming into the UK from overseas ? Especially Trenitalia for the future investment in HS2 and experience in running that type of train .SGC are where FGP were 5 years ago before the rights issue . My opinion only .

This is still very cheap if the forecasts of the analysts are believable. earnings per share about 12 p for this year and 14p for next year. Applying a 10 to 15 times p/e one will get a reasonable fair price range of 120 to 200 p as price target.

For what it's worth, I hope the strategy isn't focused on dividends. The real money for shareholders is best realised imho in either selling off or ipo'ing the us businesses. Train franchises, double edged sword. Depends entirely on the terms of the franchise. I bet most of the recent winners of franchises are not feeling so happy about them now.

Still no mention of dividend restoration. Debt being paid down though so that's a positive. Couple of rail franchise wins will perk these up

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.

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