Essential So have you sold out of GSK or is that paper loss still? I am worried about leverage in the system. I think if there are no major catalysts/external inputs we are just in for a long, sustained period of general stock market stagnation. Trackers are certainly not the place to be IMO.

M, I'm often too cautious in my approach, first to admit that. GSK cost me 4.5k btw, not bloody cautious enough there!. Looking at some of the recent price destruction on individual MCX and UKX stocks, it's the sort of price action you would expect to see during a severe market corection or wider bear market. Is it a sign of over leverage in the system?. What gains I've made recently have been short term trades.

Stewart64 Fair enough. Perhaps my frustration showing through. My comment wasn't really aimed at anyone in particular, certainly not Essential, as he has mentioned the acquisition many times before.

Here we go. All the negative comments. LOL! Where were you all a week ago, eh? Hindsight commentary. Great isn't it.

Stewart, intended as irony. I've read your views, and happen to agree on the hybrid model often leading to value destruction.

Essentialinvestor...if you take out Bab's richly valued intangibles such as goodwill you have a net liabilities position on the overall balance sheet let alone a net debt position.

Better to stick with facts rather than emotion. The day before the Avincis deal announcement BAB traded around 13.50 a share. They took on over 700 million in debt to part fund the deal. The share price is now down by approx 50% since the acquisition was announced, so saying sentiment has been impacted since, is an understatement. Which of the above is incorrect ? - or is emotive subjection easier than cold hard facts. I don't go short individual stocks, and often have a very different take to FAB. On GSK he and right and I was wrong. Good luck with your holding.

Best I leave you and your wingman to stroke each other's egos. What a pair of shysters.

EI - Thanks. Me too. Like the company but not the market at the moment. Of course, we cannot overlook the market preparation for that potential Xmas bonus run and a tilt at those highs. Much better to start from a lower base and a bit of PI bullying certainly helps their cause.

Without the Avincis purchase net debt would be 700 milion + lower imv, their % gearing was very modest before that buy.

Well, I hope you've shorted it then.

A bounce, yes, but for a company like BAB, I prefer to concentrate on the monthly/weekly timeframe and it looks weak to me.

FAB, good call on GSK. Since the Avincis purchase in 2014, sentiment towards BAB has never fully recovered. The price at the time was thought to a full one, and perhaps that view has been validated. Without such a large acquisition. Have BAB on a watchlist.

Let's see shall we. By the way, who mentioned trading? Not me. I did however mention 'long term' and the big decisions are generally assessed over the longer time frame and that is ultimately what moves the market. Good luck though. I am sure you are absolutely right on your own agenda.
