Penycae...don't know whether it has already been mentioned here but being reported that Bab is going out of the FTSE 100 and Justeat in. ( not sure if thst is fact or assumed).

lab305 "I never can but I will be near if I buy a few now and again on the drop." Quite. Buying near a bottom or after a big drop is the only sensible plan imo and never buying near tops, or what look like tops. As long as it doesn't cave in completely. o/t but a while ago I went through the main indices, making an assumption that instead of buying all the time, I saved all the monthly payments and then made purchases after every x% fall eg. 5%, 8%, 10%, but never after rises. Stuck it all on a spreadsheet. The end result was a fairly stunning outperformance of the index. Obviously doesn't necessarily work with individual companies as they might go bust !

Bench, referenced a similar point yesterday. While fully agree staying in cash long term is a slow road to the poorhouse, this does look late stage bull market price action to me. Second longest bull market post WW11 as it stands.

The MoD want to find £20 Billion of savings over the next 10 years. Although a double edged sword, it should be a net positive for BAB ?.

No, you're right, it isn't, EssentialInvestor; I'm talking in the immediate near time - like next week. I'll consider my options again when things have calmed down and - hopefully - I'm already sitting on a substantial profit. Anyway, if this is a long-term thing for you - how come you're on here repeatedly posting screeds of barely-concealed deramping (ooh how much did you LOSE on GSK, etc , etc). Just like me, I expect you're looking for a quick profit here, one way or the other.

Massively oversold is not necessarily indicative of longer term value.

Interesting to see if any directors buy these levels.

You can make a chart say whatever you want it to say. In my view this share is currently massively oversold and there will be an inevitable strong bounce, perhaps also this is a final capitulation in the long recent share price decline and it will now revert into an ascending channel. I hope it is the latter as I now have a substantial holding at an average price of less than 700p.

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.

Just bought another 1k at 681 . Average now 738. I cannot understand who is selling .

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.

Luckily, I had a cheeky buy order in at 679p which got filled while i was out. Onwards and upwards!!

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.
