Surely if you look at a descending line on a chart you can project it anywhere down the line. £6, £5, £4 etc. Eventually sense and value must prevail. Finding the bottom is obviously the trick. I never can but I will be near if I buy a few now and again on the drop. Shorting is probably to blame here. Having made a killing on clln they have big pockets and maybe shorting the whole sector, anyway you can only compress a spring so far.

Now trading well below the UKX automatic Exit ranking, very approx positioned 12 places below this.

Somebody took a bit of flack yesterday for saying these could hit a fiver. That would take us to 2009 levels, but from a charting perspective, it's entirely possible. I've got a few ISAT. Same thing's happening there, so not the best of weeks. 7.7% reported short there.

S64 -You forgot MKS, another stalwart of the FTSE 100 which was also considered a defensive stock and is another falling knife. It seems any high yield FTSE 100 & 250 share should be avoided like the plague at present. BAB crashing again as I write. Some insiders must know something is rotten in the pipeline.

Probably one of the large institutional holdings shorting their own book. Only 1.3% shown as disclosed short positions, but that can't be right. FTSE 100 status in doubt next week? I'm holding quite a few of these, and added yesterday. Uncomfortable to say the least.

I think this analyst is a bit upset as he started recommending BAB only a few months ago. But I suppose his comments encapsulate the main concerns.

Even on that pessimistic outlook, it's still circa 45% upside from here. I'll settle for that plus a nice divi too.

I don't see where they are coming from on the trust issues. The financial reporting is one of the more clearer sets that I read. Perhaps the analyst should ask the government because the clouds and indecisions here completely lie at the door of the MOD.

stewart64 Annual lows I can accept but this is 5 and a half year low despite increasing profit , divided etc year on year by a decent margin.

Lab305...Yep black Friday sale tomorrow. Think Bab will open higher at 6.90, may have missed the low for now. As previously mentioned GSK, Imperial Brands,BT and Centrica also close to annual lows. All good earners, but all with balance sheet issues.

M, I sold. It cancelled out my BMY gains unfortunately, had bought quite a few Bloomsbury pre recent results. My main trading share atm is TATE. Woodford in fairness timed some of his exits very well, BT.A, CNA, RMG and now GSK.

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.
