chinese investor: Why is the Share Price Going Down ?
s50cam: Civil engineer WS Atkins' confidence that it could keep next year's profits broadly flat, against the double-digit percentage fall that the City had been expecting, pushed its share price up by nearly 8%. At 600½p, or nine times next year's earnings, and yielding 4.6%, buy on weakness suggests the Times.
therailwaytrackers: At these levels looks high with a DY 1.54% I wouldnt be a buyer of this stock, in addition the Labour Rates have sored over the last few years. For examples a few years ago as a safety contractor rates were between £28/£30 hour for these rates have climbed to as much as £45. Please note that my comments do not affect the share price, it is based on my view and exprience in working in their industry.
judge jury: Pomp - Agree it cant hurt and it certainly sounds like it should have a material financial impact but the actual amount is obviously difficult to quantify (especially as we are talking about a JV). Also, I suspect that this news was expected - I think it was rumoured that the consortium would win for some time. I also believe the same consortium is doing the same sort of thing in Beijing (and they may have been involved in Athens) so you might turn this on its head and say that ATK needs to keep winning these type of contracts in order to sustain its share price. All that said, it underpins my view that this is essentially an excellent safe long term play - which is growing too. Keep adding (particularly on dips) is my investment strategy.
judge jury: This highlights ATK's long term growth potential. The group has excellent skill levels which are in demand from different business segments and can be exported worldwide. I suspect the company to continue to churn out top line and bottom line growth well ahead of most companies - the share price should continue to follow steadily.
0222166: The share price has held where others have crumbled. ATK is a good bet and will rise and with results out in june it is a good bet for a long
tonyleongson: Atkins mentioned in Motley Fool --------------------------- How To Catch A Falling Knife Market Comment By Stuart Watson You'll see this well-worn investment phrase all the time on our discussion boards. But is it good advice? The basic reasoning is simple. A share that is falling heavily is likely to be doing so for good reason. So investors should steer clear, at least until it stops falling. Sometimes there is an obvious reason for the fall, like BTG (LSE: BGC.L - news) 's (LSE: BGC) recent admission that its key product was facing delays. This led to its shares falling almost 60% in one day last month. Today, its shares have fallen back again, as the company revealed the delay could be as long as two years. At other times, share price falls appear to happen for no obvious reason. Deciding a course of action in these cases is far trickier. Do you wait for the company to confirm that nothing untoward is happening, or perhaps check on other companies in the sector to see if they are having difficulties? But regardless of the difficulties of individual investing decisions, what about the strategy as a whole? How do falling knives perform as a group? Contrary to the traditional investing wisdom, a recent study (pdf file) by The Brandes Institute has suggested catching falling knives can be worthwhile. They define a falling knife as a share that has fallen 60% or more in a twelve-month period and found that these shares tend to outperform their country's main index for the next two years. There are some caveats of course. The outperformance is mainly due to a small proportion of exceptional performers -- shares that double or more. WS Atkins (LSE: ATK.L - news) is a classic example. It topped our table of profit warnings for 2002. Yet, within twelve months, its shares had risen eight-fold. So picking the occasional falling knife is very much hit and miss. Unless luck is on your side, and you happen to select one of the big gainers, knife catching just isn't going to cut it. You need a selection of sickly shares to turn the odds in your favour. The researchers also found that sticking to larger companies and those with the lowest price to book ratio also improved your odds. Sounds a bit like value investing to me!
tonyleongson: Todays Telegraph --------------------- Atkins looks on track WS Atkins, the troubled support services group, unveiled a loss of £62m for the year to the end of March. The figures, announced in June, were dragged down by an exceptional hit of £75m, mainly related to the failure of a computer system. However, following the appointment of Keith Clarke as chief executive and other management changes, the company appears to be back on track. The group, part of a consortium with a contract to run part of London Underground, has a strong order book, while margins are improving. Analysts expect profits for this year of more than £42m. Confirmation of the group's improving prospects should come when it unveils interim figures on December 2. Atkins has strong cash flow and has reduced its debt from £120m in September last year to £72m in March. Its share price has returned from a low of 56p last year to close at 424p. There are still plenty of opportunities for growth and it is not too late to buy in now.
last-in: It means the staff employee trust holds about 5% of Atkins shares and is giving them to the managers who are exercising options to buy them, presumbably at a big discount to the current market price. Could be the options are near an expiry date or someone needs the cash but volumes are very small so even if sold will not make much impact on the share price. I am more worried about the very low overal volumes, 53000 today, which are letting ATK drift downwards. I see this dropping to 415 if volumes do not pick up.
