|....or was there perhaps some indication given at this morning's AGM? Certainly no Market reaction...|
|Larva - posted on the wrong thread perhaps!?|
|As I said, obvious someone buying past few days, price manipulated. Suspect other ii's doing similar.|
|Chelverton above 5% having acquired another 50k.|
|There you go, £23Billion on infrastructure (and thats before some of the bigger projects kick off). GATC should take a slice of that imo. Wait for the herd after this order has been filled.|
|Maiden purchase for me here today.|
|Price being manipulated before the budget statement imo. Infrastructure high on the agenda.|
|Yeah, you should be able to do much better than the spread quoted|
|Spread's off putting, as always, but can buy well beneath offer.|
|Seems to have formed a bottom here.
May dip my toes in the water for a few.|
|Bought a few.|
|ExDiv. Offering longterm value imo|
|@Sky - welcome aboard! It's one of about 5 stocks I hold, mainly AIM-listed IHT punts for LTBH, but never in large size. Otherwise try to be all Investment Trust (or equivalent, eg REITS or pseudo-REITS).
GATC can be very illiquid and swing around a bit, but as a (theoretical) long term holder can't say it bothers me. What did annoy me is the name change from Matchtech - smacked of money needlessly spent. And recruiters invariably suffer when the next downturn comes along. But I think both UK & US move towards infrastructure spending is going to supply a decent tailwind.|
|May well do tomorrow with that 17p dividend in the bag.|
|Had a reasonable write-up in the Reports section in the IC on Friday - is what's stimulated today's buying I reckon. Can also imagine them tipping it at some point, with the whole infrastructure angle.|
|See what the autum statement has to say. Look out for anything infrastructure related, as hinted by Gatc, they should benifit strongly imo.
Also relevant "Furthermore, extra headcount is presently being deployed overseas where stronger growth is being achieved. In particular, we reckon a sea-change could be coming in the US, irrespective of which candidate wins the Presidential Election next Tuesday, since much of the country’s road, bridge, rail and transport networks are crumbling, with estimates from the American Society of Civil Engineers suggesting $3.32trillion of infrastructure spend is required between 2016 and 2025"
Looks like a decade of infrastructure for UK, US, and India. Should keep Gattaca busy!|
|@kMann - if you think funds are buying, someone has to be selling, natch?|
|SpectoAcc, why would funds sell a stable, high yield stock? Have you sold/shoerted? If so why?|
|Or selling? ;)|
|Large volume past few days. Funds buying?|
|PS is correct about NFI being the true top line.
I'm surprised he hasn't mentioned the cash flow statement. This is the real clincher...
DYOR and you will see that they have generated so much cash that they have afforded to pay the fantastic dividend and reduce debt.
Capex requirements are low relative to cash flow and finance costs will fall so even if NFI is down 3% this financial year the company will still have ample cash flow for the dividend and debt repayment.|
