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.

Yep - cash - what a great 'investment'! You can get a totally derisory rate for several years and watch your cash be eroded by inflation before you blink.

No posts here make the slightest bit of difference to a 3.5 Billion (approx) market cap company. No directors buying post results so far.

What a totally vacuous paragraph that is. Are you really that poor a trader you need to stoop to drivel like that in the hope of shaving another penny off the price?

Woodhawk - I suggest you take a look at some long term trends before making comments about 'silly scare tactics'. That is the basis of my view. Value, subjective though it is, has nothing to do with it which I am sure you fully appreciate. If the view is that the economy is slowing then the company could be considered vulnerable which is reflected in the price. I could just easily be wrong but it looks weak and you have to ask yourself why and where the market might perceive prudent value over the longer term.

Fabius1 Try and be a little bit realistic with your silly scare tactics, mate.

Seems to me the potential target support is around the 500-600 mark.

After a bit of trading yesterday, I've now got a decent holding under 700p.

I guess that was fairly predictable. Buy into the first rally, sell by the end of that day and switch back to a short. I've not bought in yet until this one ceases to be a trader's play thing and settles down a bit.

Well I've taken a bet on 700p being near bottom (got some around 680p earlier) and if it goes down to 600p will double up again.

That's the stuff I need to hear, seriously; I'm only even at ... £9, eek, so best to treat BAB as my 3+% building society and check it every couple of months. For a few years.

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.
