Yes, its easy to become a victim of the sunk cost fallacy if you don't really know what capacity a business has to recover, which needs a lot of thought about the business, not the share price

It's only cost you dear if you need to sell the asset. The earnings stream was respectable at 600p and is very attractive at these prices. ;) Too many focus on the share price and not the underlying business. By focusing on the share price you are just watching the behaviour of shorters who play on fear and propaganda with little facts and a short-term vision.

Item, cost him dear ?, Have you not taken account of the money Neil has earned since founding his fund management company!. He's earned 10's of millions. What you might mean is...it's potentially cost holders of his funds dearly. Would not be surprised if he sells out in a year or two and just enjoys his wealth.

chopp1 the trouble is people were writing exactly the same as you when this share was in the 600's. Now it needs to go up 50% just to get back there. Calling the market as being wrong is a dangerous tactic on a big freely traded liquid share such as this. It's cost Neil Woodford dear these last few years.

A decent lift this morning........ As has been stated above..... difficult to see why bab is treated so harshly at every turn. The possibility of an opportunistic foreign power having a bearing on the subject is not beyond the bounds of possibility in this day and age.

TraderBus. You need to be holding on 4/7, which is the XD(ex dividend) date. You can sell it ON 4/7 and still get the dividend-but if you sell it on 3/7, or earlier, you won't be eligible for it. The pay day for the dividend is 9/8(though some brokers can take a day or two longer to credit it).

As a newbie investor in this share, having also never held shares with a divi, which date do you have to be holding shares to get the divi? I invested today...

Yes, it'd be funny if a Chinese business decided it'd like to buy BAB. If J. Corbyn was PM that would be perfectly possible, & would help promote brotherhood around the globe or something.The price wouldn't need to be that high either, if a bit more than at present, given the fear in the local investment community.

Given the history of companies from (often hostile government) other countries getting their hands on our infrastructure businesses, presumably it is within the realms of possibility that there is a deliberate attempt to damage BAB in whatever way possible, with a view to some sort of low-ball bid. The market works on sentiment and the anti-outsource fear is still gripping the market, so what better time to create more alarm and despondency. For that purpose, it doesn't matter whether any comments are true or not.

The trend is still down on this share and submarines are capable of plunging to great depths. Best to wait for a trend reversal here IMO.

No idea about short term, could go anyway but should recover well over time, with a reasonable divi. Markets don’t like uncertainty but with May going EU elections telling us what we already know, new Tory leader, must be Boris Johnson, not another unknown please! People tend to vote for big characters, as history has shown. Market will recover soon
