Very quiet here. I had sold for a nice profit but I bought some back yesterday and will add more on weakness. BAB will be much higher than the current price in time.

Decline in share price only, not in prospects IMO. Eventually things will catch up. Look at the world fires. Look at the nuclear industry vs growth. Look at the projected defence equipment that will need to be managed. I'm confident to top-up. If it falls I will most likely add again.

Still some money to be made if you have insider knowledge! For the rest the slow painful decline will continue.

tournesol And still I'd hazzard a guess that you still happily pay your TV licence.

The BBC is an expert on fake news. Take for example last year's election coverage. Start of campaign May should have walked it, After 6 weeks of subliminal Labour support, showing Corbyn surrounded by cheering supporters and every shot of May being booed by hecklers, no wonder the result was as bad as it was for the Conservatives.

Nothing changes much about the media. Every now and again there's a cost-cutting drive that gets rid of staff, and in awareness of this the astute people arrange their exits anyway (typically in PR, writing releases) which contributes to turnover. Thus you are reading articles in the main by 20-somethings who may be engaging a company for a first time thus have not acquired any proper understanding over time.

imo investing has, for the pi become more about spotting the latest celebrity stock and judging by appearance, rather than performance. ie. if you can guess which stocks the manipulators are going to ramp because of their 'story', you'll do pretty well. If you can guess which stocks the average punter will get excited about, you can get on board before the crowd. Ignore losses, ignore whether the business will ever turn a profit etc. etc. If a few people can 'sell' the story at the same time as causing a rapid price rise in an illiquid stock, a flock of pi's will also buy in. Just watching SOS. Easily for the average punter to understand. In the public eye. Some great revenue growth to excite those who think 'it might be them'. Its all to do with appearance and saleability of the investment 'story' and whether any buzzwords can be linked into the story. I'm doing pi's a slight disservice, because there are of course the 'advisers' who can also sell the stories to their private clients in bulk and they're all the more credible if they are either easily understandable like SOS, or a complete mystery but a great tech-sounding thingamebob which will be the next big thing. In the end, if a load of punters decide to get excited about revenue or buzzwords and ignore profits, just take the money off them. They are deciding the market, whether anyone thinks its stupid or not. Its a year 2000 legacy.

elliotset You are wrong I'm afraid - explained below: I guess you are a spreadbetting shorter. But keep comfy in the knowledge that your trade is probably not directly linked to the market and is created by your brokerage (read spreadbetting firm) using derivatives against each other and third-party counterparties - non-market. Here is why you are wrong: If a company's shares are ramped it has increased opportunity to raise capital and eventually deliver on the promise - think Amazon. If a company shares are shorted it has less opportunity to raise capital to get out of problems or execute the original business plan. The primary market was originally intended to raise capital for companies. The secondary market - the one we trade on - was there to create liquidity to support the primary one. If you short - the secondary market is damaging the primary market - and the tail begins to wag the dog. Some of you need to realise that the stockmarket is there to support human endeavour not the other way around. It's becoming a casino and Woodford is absolutely right in his comments.

Chopp1 Good post and absolutely right! Eventually the shorters will run out of liquidity because nobody will play their game if this continues for a decade or more. Investing has lost its soul.

There is a lot to be jittery about now. Brexit, trade wars, influence of China's economy (whose GDP growth figures are suspect), record levels of global debt, UK service sector problems. Investors are easily panicked.

You have to accept that any stories/updates with a hint of negative will be jumped on by the modern masses of moronic shorters pratting with their iPhone Apps. The stock market is becoming a moron's casino, sadly.

No worse than expected; & better in some respects.
