Alter ego You say "...comparisons with low margin Carillion type contracting …. are very wide of the mark." Are you sure? BAB's margins seem pretty low to me Only 6% in its largest business segment - LAND and just 10% across its business as a whole. That's not high margin is it? (Source for margin figures is most recent half year results presentation available on BAB's website.)

If BAB announced a share buy back scheme would that make shorters close their position?

Seen the news. WOW - that is poor news.I do think BAB should come our and make a statement - being tarnished with same brush and giving clarity on its financial health, pipeline and pension position is needed

"good news counts for nothing, bad news on a different company in a marginally related area of business, wallop." My sentiments precisely!

looks like BAB tarred with same brush as Capita this morning.

Here we go again, what next? It's endless with this share, good news counts for nothing, bad news on a different company in a marginally related area of business, wallop. I just checked brokers reports within the last few weeks on Capita, some 'buys' 350-450p; in other words totally meaningless, so no comfort in the several buys, one to 980p on BAB.

My average is now 6.75 after trading, still in profit but I think there is more to come!

Thanks for the Nimis brokers note. Just waiting for news to send the share price higher. Perhaps the trading update will help - may buy some more before the update.

The tricky bit is to work out if the sheep are heading for the cliff, or if they're just running around in circles because the one in front is running around in circles.

If you imagine that you are a hedge fund and have x number of shorts to pick, which sectors would you choose ? Construction and Retailing (the physical ones) seem a good start. Assuming that you have to short, given that is your business, in the same way that investing is. Those are two sectors where margin pressure is obviously at work and the idea is to make money from the share price movements, so you pick the ones that are most vulnerable, not based on their actual figures, but based on the sentiment that people adopt just on face value. A load of analysts worried reports is enough to encourage a lot of sheep to do what you want.

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!
