The Ministry of Defence has suspended the controversial £1bn international tender for three Royal Navy support ships, raising hopes that the major naval contract will be reserved for UK shipyards. Common sense at last?

And up we go again. Think there might be a bit of nervousness surrounding the margins on the frigates, quite rightly.

Onwards & upwards into the 600’s, a nice safe haven for those earlier sub 500p bargain hunters.

I guess it is what's called it a relief rally. I'm not familiar enough with this sector to know whether 1) Brexit 2) Gov other policies (e.g. MOD) that aren't influenced in same way is a constant or whether there are projects/spending currently on hold by gov pending a post Brexit vision and removal of the unknown factor, as is the case with many other businesses. I'm expecting gov to start spending on projects, but don't know if they are of type that BAB may benefit from. I am also given to believe some of BABs work (e.g. submarine de-commissioning) is something that's not normally influnced by politics. I therefore don't feel I have the same informed perception of this sector compared to others. Atleast they aren't mentioned as being party to Hinkley point C and the over-spend in todays news.

Dr SmithCorrect but just to be continuing to win contracts or for the contracts to be there to win gives a much needed confidence boost in this sector.I agree with you that the share price woefully undervalues this company but reflects confidence therefore in line forecasts are not priced in.

Our Haven >the pipeline success. Please elaborate - I assume you mean order pipeline, that is "in line"?

Dr Smith. I think the market in a sector which has taken a battering, was reassured by the in line with expectations but what is driving the price rise is the pipeline success.Retaining their investment grade status is also important in raising debt at a sustainable rate.

For an "in line" update,I'd expect little change in sp, but looks like the "no surprises" you mention Our Haven, is the market positive, being around 4% up, though still way down from where I would expect to be.

imo the differences are far too great to ignore. Maybe as the doom peaks, the posts just dry up out of boredom and disillusionment, although the converse of seeing increasing posts on the rise doesn't seem to be happening... or perhaps many shares just go through similar cycles of posts anyway haven't got anything better to do apart from looking at numberphile on youtube ;-) Er, also last time someone said 'forget it' to me, I carried on, got a patent for an invention and made a reasonable amount of money from it. Red rag to bull etc.

Well here are some rather startling figures of posts per day - I have no idea what to make of them: 100 posts between June 18 and Mid-October 18 - about 3.4 months 100 posts between Mid Oct and Mid Nov 18 a month 100 posts between Mid Nov and end Nov 18 15 days 100 posts between end Nov 18 and Mid May 19 !! - about 5 months 100 posts between mid May and now - about 4 months. The major share price fall ended around start December Mid May was the spiked bottom.

Strong buying on takeover rumours, many uk Companies could be bid targets, a lot of overseas buying, snapping up cheap, under valued uk assets. PHC,MSYS, ITX ready to start a big long term move too imho Dyor as usual.

I guess without monitoring the number of posts before and after in some sort of rigourous trial, its not exactly a firm conclusion !

Saga might be doing the same thing. A few months ago it was a basket case, according to more than one persistent poster.
