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

MTR Hong Kong could buy FGP with loose change especially at these low share price My wife is from HK, becoming a nurse here in the 60s. Now we are retired, we spend a couple of months every year in Hong Kong The MTR is like our tube only much quieter, twice the width and twice a long. Any time of the day the 6 or 7 lines are always full, the fares are really cheap by UK standards

We have extensive expertise of running commuter, inter-urban, regional and long distance services – such as those that make up the South Western franchise – and a strong track record in delivering passenger growth. MTR run successful suburban and commuter railways; their knowledge from running London Overground and TfL Rail on behalf of Transport for London will add further depth and understanding to an important component of this franchise.

Our bid will keep people moving and communities prospering across the region."

The market is pleased, but I am a tad disappointed that the net debt (and therefore interest payments) is not dropping. Company going in the right direction, so maybe next year....
