merie "Minerve2 - please take a bow" Thank you for your kind words. :) I'm glad that I've helped saved you some money for the time being. I guess you are now watching from the sidelines to see when and if to buy back in - like me. We could get caught out on a quick flip to the upside on some news, for example a Serco offer, but that wouldn't matter so much as long as the price still represents good value. Good luck.

Not exactly certain how it works but once again there are thousands of small transaction for only 1m odd shares traded.It looks like the share price is being forced down on fairly low volume. Probably computer driven transactions.Does anyone have experience on how it is possible to influence the share price with these small trades?

You're a private investor so you are meaningless to them

The insiders know exactly what is going on. Unfortunately the private investors will be the last to know.Just have to keep our fingers crossed that the management see fit to explain to the owners of the company what’s going on at some point!

I guess the market is expecting a fund raising.

Having foolishly entered at c.£7 relatively recently and seen it go progressively south, Minerve2 - please take a bow - recently posted a compellingly rational explanation of what was deemed to be wrong, whereupon I took my beating, exiting at £2.69.Looking at the share price today, I am unsure whether to laugh or cry, yet as a football commentator 'wisely' remarked of the sport, it is a game of two halves; and in the present context one of winners and losers.

Surely this BAB valuation can't be ignored by BA?

Wash, rinse and repeat (by moving on). A much easier way to earn £20/£30 million without having to put real effort into growing a company properly. Most of these modern executives haven't the foggiest idea of how to grow a company properly, creating real shareholder value rather than the cheap tricks they use today that any spanner monkey thrown in to the works could do. Then they go home thinking they are clever. Sorry, no.

Makes you wonder whether the executive will just allow it to fall so it becomes a sitting duck for a takeover. I wonder if Serco is in their minds? Another executive windfall for doing FA.

Just decided to take a £30k hit.Still holding a way to many but am now averaged down to £2.59.Will need £3.25 just to break even after the loss.Could take some time!

Well the chairman has been buying in all year (about 170K total) since march, for whatever that's worth. My position is screwed, bought just before the crash, now 50% down! Awful timing. But looking at the monthly chart, this really looks due a bounce in the next few months, and analysts' estimates (if you even value them) are way higher than the current share price

fitton Personally I would be patient rather than average down. When a clearer future is known you will have every opportunity to add later if you wish - I wouldn't try and time the bottom. :)

Agreed.Any information is better than nothing.I’m uncertain as to whether to average down at these levels or is it going to go a lot lower.I had considered there was reasonable value at £3 but with the lack of any kind of guidance who knows.Multi year intra day low was yesterday at £2.235.So far today it’s hovering above that level but not looking very good at the moment

Someone thought it worth a gamble at 10.00 buying over 800k.

Either way let's have an update from the new boy. Even if he just says he's counted the petty cash. This drip drip fall in the share price is so frustrating. There must be value in bab at this level - surely??? Suet

I sold at a 10% loss, painful but it's gone down further since I got out last week. Hard to know where the bottom is now and whether there is something nasty going to come out?

Something seriously wrong here. Forward financials indicating, @236p, MCap of just 4 x PTP; P/E 5.5, which, if they returned to previously profitability would indicate a yield of 12.5%. And no sign of any buying interest. I get, therefore, why some reckon that there's a RI on the way, but I don't know why they'd need one.
