What do those in the no know? Level of shorts rose sharply backend of last year. Only c 5% but still higher than been for long time

Been reading about margins in construction the other day. Brings it home how bad CLLN margins were and a few others, so subject to dire consequences on any contract problems or late payments. Some running at 2% which gives no margin for error. BAB margin pre-tax is pretty healthy though 6+ percent. Unfortunately 'the market' acts like a load of sheep and can't differentiate between different businesses in the same sector half the time.

I see what you mean alanr1. In absence of any other info a spurious guess would be some connection or read across from CRLN downfall. Though that could just as easily be a positive.

Looking good until 2pm - wonder why the share price suddenly went down - anyone know why. I think it is due to short term traders - the value investors will win out in the end imo!

I am watching Bristow Group- BRS on New York- they are a main competitor on the helicopter side, look like things are improving slowly

Think Friday's rise was more likely down to the GKN bid, BAB being another fairly neglected company with an engineering bias.

"Was the Friday rise due to the pending Carillion collapse?" Possible, yes. I would suspect there is opportunity to pick up contracts managing military bases and possibly some related to rail networks.

If so, might have cleared an overhang? Onwards and upwards!

Yup just saw that - the good news keeps on coming now! Two large contract wins in 2 weeks and now a joint mega-bid!

Thanks for that Matthew. Already done well with this one and looking for plenty more upside and a useful divi too. With two substantial contract wins in the last couple of weeks, BAB must be doing something right!

Two broker updates today - a 'neutral' and a 'hold' both at 750p - which is disappointing compared to all those much higher when I bought in heavily a year back with no degeneration in the core business - these maybe initiated the price drop despite a new order. The book is full so, re the shorting, maybe it's a speculative view about debt and margins - ie how much 'going wrong' headroom is there - certainly that did for Carillion and nearly Balfour Beatty before that. I obviously hope that won't be an issue, pass me the Kalms.

As I said, only a matter of time for long term holders. In the short term traders could send the share price lower but I can wait. 9000 shares at an average price of 6.86 I have and I am confident of a good outcome. Fundamentals are good.

Level of short trades seems high and risen quickly end of 2017. Currently 5% of shares shorted.Thoughts?

It might be positive by the end of day.

Another large contract, £115M, and the share price goes down! Another nice buying opportunity, I suppose.
