haywards26: I think the news was known by certain people on Friday when you see the share price movements.. Got my top up this morning..
leadersoffice: Happy days. I see this share back in play and I'm going to stick my neck out by forcasting a share price of £4.70 by year end.
edmundshaw: A minimum of 2-3 years? Is that a minimum of 2 years or a minimum of 3 years? I take it you sold your lot then bendy, you seem very attached to the fall in the share price here. What I don't understand is why, if you are such a guru of companies that have a construction segment, that after the Q3 trading update of Nov 13 last year, which you say will, as night follows day, be followed by other problems (obviously not a fan of Ringrose's integrity as he has stated he has no intention of coming back with another unpleasant update), you bought in here a month or so ago? Much as I would like to believe in your soothsaying abilities, I confess to having some doubts...
the juggler: With a share price that has dropped 60%+ in just 1 year it would have to more than double in the next 12 months for some investors to see their accounts back in the black. I think I will await a change in management before investing here again.
jeffian: The metric for deciding the appropriate level of dividend should be dividend cover, not 'appropriate yield on share price'. On historic 2015 year figures, the divi was covered nearly 3x so, even taking account of the recent contract hit, it seems unlikely that the divi is unaffordable. The trouble with the other argument is that it is the market that decides the yield, not the Board. Famously, some years ago when Aviva was called Norwich Union, it did just what you said and "rebased" (i.e. cut) its dividend to "bring the yield in line with its peer group". So they halved the divi........and the market promptly halved its share price! Lower divi, lower share price, same yield.
aleman: Let's see - economic cycles and the share price: free stock charts from So where is the good place to buy - £2 or £5 - £7? And if we check the dividends, there are unbroken rises going back to at least 1998. I was here in the last recession. It was full of scares yet the dividend kept rising. And the company is bigger now. Should it really be expected to go back to £2 just because there is contract provision that equates to 1/4 of operating cashflow for two years - and a suggestion that the cost of this provision might even be mitigated? /font>
edmundshaw: Hard to know when it starts and stops as (a) different funds will time their exit differently to avoid killing the share price or getting a killed share price - exit timing also will depend on the rules of the fund; and (b) ther will be those trying to take advantage of the forced selling - you don't need to be a hedgie to see the possibilities there... I tried timing my buys on shares (in companies I knew) exiting or entering higher indices around 10 years ago. The simple way was to sell well in advance of a drop and buy back when you like the price, or vice versa, rather than trying to time the thing too closely. Of course fund managers may be more clever now (though I doubt it), or e-trading might have an impact, I am likely out of date. It's a bit late for safely selling with a view to buying back cheaper, though maybe still possible. Timing for buying is more of an open question...
jeffian: Interserve have been pretty canny over the years at financial problem-solving. Not many years ago, one of the things holding back the share price was a substantial pension fund shortfall. They got round that one by transferring some of their PFI schemes into the pension fund, booking a profit on the 'sale' and keeping the cashflows! We know from recent statements pre-dating the profit warning that Equipment Services was under 'strategic review' (i.e. for sale!). Maybe go some way to plugging the recent shortfall? Haven't listened to the presentation yet. Any mention of this?
edmundshaw: Further, the problems seem exclusively with aspects of waste-to-energy contracts. These are complex, involve process risk, and further involved risks due to poor performance and insolvencies from subcontractors. These risks are not generally inherent in other construction work, and there are a couple of such contracts still running (another one has been completed to time, budget, cash in the bank). Of the 2 remaining one is complete, in dispute regarding payment, the other is 70% complete and is looking OK. Various other points are raised, but need to listen personally for these. I am now bullish from this share price.
dogwalker: I'd say it's oversold whatever the results on the 24th.....Doesn't mean it won't go lower still, of course, depending on oil (it seems). I'm going to wait for the results too ,before panicking (for good reason), or not.By then the share price could be below £3 at this rate but hey-ho.Or perhaps the share price will rise ahead of results now that we've had the collapse so far .It's a job to know!
