fundamentals and logic do not determine the share price. Sentiment does unfortunately and BAB have suffered from negative sentiment for some time despite evidence that their business is resilient. Sentiment does change over time and when it does BAB will be awarded the rating it deserves. Until then, a pretty decent dividend yield is some compensation.

First negative, today, Citigroup, sell £6.60, six others 'buys', mostly very recent, one at £13.65. ! Draw your own conclusions about brokers recommendations.

I can find no comment from brokers , analysts or the press that gives any justification to the share rout , indeed all recommendations are to the contrary .

Opening gap closed. Really need to stay above £7.00 now.

Well the long term chart shows a breakout from 700p ish, but it was from a base around 600p. Not that I know what I'm talking about with charts, but that's what it looks like.

My first purchase in BAB at 688p. Nice.

So, I suppose the key question is now (assuming BAB isn't on the verge of disaster), where is capitulation - 700p or 600p ?

typical Fool puff stuff. They churn out these articles like sausages from a machine. The mere mention of Woodford tells you all you need to know about their marketing style.

2014 was the helicopter acquisition, it's been pretty much downhill since then.

The value's been dropping since 2014, & long before CorbynMcdonnel was a contender. The reduction in value over that time can plausibly be attributed to our results simply being viewed as too good to be true under the circumstances. Now that we have, today, some admission of negative circumstances, & nothing more startling,I expect a share price recovery.

A perplexing stock! I suppose the cash flow conversion was the negative catalyst as it's a big warning sign of problems with long term contracts- even though management had a good explanation.

Isn't this another Corbyn McDonnell fear stock?

Thanx for that, hopefully IC has more rigorous research than most of the published brokers projections which, thankfully, are 'buys' but at anywhere between £10 to nearly £14, which invites scepticism at the very least. No skeletons tho' it seems; we'll all be ok in a couple of years. Won't we.

IC have published a buy rec online. They explain the extra working capital requirement of £44m is due to aircraft and other assets acquired for the french air force training contract and changes in the program. They say it will reverse when the leases are signed. In summary they say "However, there is excellent revenue visibility, the workload is heavily weighted towards non-discretionary spending, and there remain high barriers to entry. Buy."

Well, after reading the results this morning I was certain I would be buying but have to confess to being somewhat mystified at the reaction.

bend1pa OK. But they expect that will even out as a 1st half/second half issue on working capital requirements???

Big drop in yoy operating cash flow, £81 (£181). For free cash flow after pension contributions, £33m (£127.5m). Seems that is what spooked the market. Nothing like enough cash made in period to cover divs £112.8m. They had to raise a loan of £121m mainly to pay it. So not so great.
