I agree, those director buys don't seem nearly a commitment enough to re-assure about skeletons; it smacks of window dressing and has had the opposite effect on me despite my faith, weakening, in a recovery.

Those director buys are pocket change to those two. Does not give me too much comfort piddly buys like that

He comes out of nowhere to tell us this. "Ask the companies whose payments were delayed by the Marine Division to boost the current interims." I thought if companies adhered to GAAP then this makes no difference when payments to suppliers are made, no?

Directors' purchases noted. Current share price does not reflect financial ratios, more the reality of future cash generation capacity and growth potential. Ask the companies whose payments were delayed by the Marine Division to boost the current interims. It's a Ponzi corporation.

2 directors today bought over 25,000 shares between them. A good sign.

Yes, the budget pledge is one of the major reasons I'm so heavily in, but the front page of this morning's Telegraph re-iterates the Times story. I'm not engineer enough to know how much of BAB's pipeline is truly 'non-discretionary' but, excuse my ignorance, doesn't 'order book' mean just that, ie orders, contracted commitments to pay during and on satisfactory completion etc, as in definite, not probable, future income? As we've seen, over-reaction is the new norm, so not relishing this am opening.

OK. So I admit, I haven't been following politics as much as I should. Certain events make me feel a little apathetic. But are we saying that this budget (link below) set by the current government is no longer valid? If so, can someone post a link to say when this was ditched. This budget confirms a rising defence spend and commitment through to 2020/21. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/defence-budget-increases-for-the-first-time-in-six-years So what is going on here?

All over the news today about the Tory's lack of commitment to defence and even the possibility of axing a couple of ships. Next week haven't got a clue can't read the omens from 666.

The stock market has been good to me over the years, it's also my main source of income, from dividends and short term trades. However I've made plenty of individual miscalculations, mentioned GSK as an example. I was tempted with BAB yesterday but held off. Not one single director buy even at these levels might be worth noting. Will have another look next week. There is likely to be a nice tradable bounce, timing is the more difficult bit.

Each to their own. I have a higher aptitude for risk and full confidence in my own judgement; that is what I have found most profitable. Should the price fall further here, I will average down. I suspect that in the fullness of time current purchases of GSK at averages below 1300p and BAB below 700p will prove to be very profitable trades.

IC tipped early last month at 823p, on fundamentals. Now it's 666p. I'll be happy to buy if I see a break in trend and a 10% rise to 730p..... Or, if it dips to 600p I'll be happy to buy on a rise of 660p. Till then I'm happy to sit on my hands and let cleverer and braver people try to call the precise turn.

Here is a question: If there was a £10Bn contract on Monday, is the chart going to predict that on Sunday night?

Good for you, Vulgaris.... don't forget to let us all know when you've found the "serious evidence". I've always found it more infinitely more profitable to make my own decisions rather than follow the herd.

The fundamentals keep saying 'buy', but the chart remains a stinker.... I won't touch till I see serious evidence that it has turned.

For what it's worth I just read an estimate that getting dropped from the FTSE100 index would lead to 7.5mm shares to be sold by tracker funds
