I bought in this morning as it looks like a recovery break-out could be underway. I'll buy another slice for the pension pot if it retraces.

Let's wait and see. Good luck to PWC as auditors. Clarity and professionalism is all that matters. Time for the MoD to step up and speak up, perhaps?

Don't like the sound of a 2 week delay in the results for PwC to complete their audit. Ok the reason sounds plausible - peeps working remotely and a geographically diverse group. But I am suspicious. Probably no dividend like ba. and delays in contracts and reduced government spending. The share price has been really disappointing for some considerable time and even though I have reduced my holding I could do without further pain. Suet - waiting somewhat nervously.

Thanks 1spotter. I for one wouldn't have known anything at all about the first Vanguard Class' subs 2nd refit & how things are going with it. It seems as though you may have answered your own question , somehow, with little chance of there being further light on the nuclear sub-split.

No problem! It's about transparency and understanding where the real source of revenue and profit or loss lies. Nuclear does good mainly because Marine's submarine business is busy, perhaps? A hit to the Nuclear part of the business could result from a decision by the UK government to wind down the submarine programme post-Covid perhaps? Just how vulnerable is this business in today's world? Obfuscation is not acceptable.

Excuse me for chipping in but what difference does it make - what the proportion of 'nuclear' is derived from one form of it or the other?

Thanks, Dave. Clarity on how how much of the revenue classified as "Nuclear" derives after re-allocation from the Devonport business and the legacy Rosyth issues. Do you have this info? If not, perhaps someone else can post this. Cheers.

In M&S last week the sign by escalator said "Dogs must be carried". I had to wait 20 mins for one to come along! ;-)

There is a world-wide shortage of escalators that work, that is for sure. :)

Dogwalker. Oops...my fingers can't keep up with my brain. Scrub that! I thought I'd test the readers to spot the error. Well done DogWalker. ;-)

Smug mode "on" for me, after my above post. ;-) "We responded quickly to the UK Prime Minister's UK Ventilator Challenge and we are proud to have been awarded a contract by the Cabinet Office to manufacture 10,000 Zephyr Plus ventilators, subject to regulatory approvals; a product being developed in collaboration with an established major international supplier of critical care ventilators." I am concerned regarding "subject to regulatory approvals;". That's normally something to be glossed over in an rns, a paperwork formality, that has to be gone through, a rubber-stamping exercise, but that's my point. We have daily deaths,impending escalation and shortage worldwide of escalators and they say, even after being awarded the contract by the gov, the cabinet office no less, with wartime powers, yet they have to wait and delay production for a rubber stamping exercise?????????????? I would expect this to be done and dispensed with, with half a dozen phone calls of relevant top level government/industry officials. Delay=deaths=Country not at work, not living lives, deepening econmic impact. IMO Dave

Good update. They look to be continuing trading across most areas. Good to see the vital work they are doing across the world and I was not aware of the potential 10000 ventilators.

I was surprised to see them 5% up earlier, and see they haven't dived as much as others since 14/2/20 when CV hit market big. I note their business "We focus on three highly regulated markets – defence, emergency services and civil nuclear – delivering vital services and managing complex assets in the UK and internationally. " I always tend to think of them in defence context, but perhaps it is the " emergency services" bouying them up, either due to actual work of investor expectation of same.

jackdaw Stock buybacks are good for shareholders as long as they are made out of earnings(real) and cashflow and company debt is low/zero or manageable. The problems is too many companies have taken the opportunity of low interest rates to increase debt for share buybacks driven by their laziness, or lack of competence, to drive organic growth coupled with remuneration packages tied to earnings per share.

Buy Back They are hints of monetary addiction. Just how dangerous we will shortly find out – just how damaging the unintended consequences the last eight years of market distortion have been. I suspect unravelling the damage will be long-term and extremely destabilising. For instance; the obvious one is corporate debt. $14 trillion of new corporate debt in the last 7 years needs to be repaid. Was it spent on building new productive assets? Nope. Most of it was spent on stock buybacks which created wealth for owners, but has simply leveraged companies to the hilt. There is enormous balance sheet damage to be corrected – and that is not stock positive in the next few months. The wealth effect of stock buybacks juicing stock markets has fuelled property, art, and luxury businesses around the globe. Remove

I think it all may be going to happen, notwithstanding online interventions from the Trolls. Fit owner and operator of key strategic deterrent assets? Balance sheet to take on the required infrastructure tasks to support it? Think not. Bought a ridiculous helicopter business ?. Think so. There's a lot to unravel.
