Volume is certainly significant.

Meanwhile the share price has declined circa 45% over the past 18 months? 567 point rise on the Dow last night and usual pathetic response here in the UK.

I think it was a positive statement- the market was just looking for bad news - revenue was forecast down a bit but still increasing - but margins were up a bit. A good result is still on the cards.

Another confirmation of meeting forecasts and an optimistic outlook statement. All on a p/e almost half what it was a few years ago. Fits in a SIPP nicely.

Might turn out to be a bloody good day for buying though! Already at a 6 year low. Ludicrous.

Lets face it, every fear in the book will appear as a result of Carillion and Capita, plus a bit of Brexit, plus a bit of Labour getting in and getting rid of the military etc. etc. At some point that will all finish, so with many shares in this sector, that will purely be a matter of judging when sentiment changes - or when investors are not taking any more notice of the worries. Much easier to voice 'worries' of any kind that will seem credible when a share price is already low anyway. Pick any spike and look for worries. There are none.

It is quite interesting to see how people think and argue their case. I prefer to take an 'empirical' approach. There is also the small matter of the market which as we know, has its own agenda. Today's move is interesting but the close will tell us if £6 is still on the table and with good reason. PS- Market aside, I have a feeling Benjamin Graham might just be sitting on his hands for now.

Classic UK sheep behaviour now in the market. Go around in circles while the Dow flies up and then panic when it comes down a bit. Never mind we'll soon have dynamic new political leaders to make us feel good again and make the UK great again. Er, well they'll have to be born and go into politics first... that could take a while.

Unless there has been a share consolidation that I'm unaware of, you must be looking at the wrong share chart. The rating bubbled up to 30 in 2014 (1500p) from a share price around this level during the recession and since then retreated to a more sensible figure for the quality of earnings. Not obvious why it got to that high level in the first place.

Penycae I accept your point that BAB's margins are screwed down by government and that they can't easily do much about that. But why would an investor choose to invest in a company which is being thus constrained? Why not invest in a company which is not being screwed to the floor. If that's a different sector so what? And having said all that, if the barriers to entry in BAB's sector are so high and the expertise in such short supply, then why accept the Government's unreasonable demands for sub-economic pricing? Why not walk away and let somebody else go broke working for scant rewards? Why compete for non-profitable work?

You can't compare margins APL vs BAB. Markets are completely different. Most children want an i.phone these days, even while they are still in junior school. If you are decommissioning a nuclear submarine, you are in a very limited market, not dictated by your product/expertise, but dictated by what your customer will pay. Try telling HMG you want a contract on a cost plus 25% basis.
