woodhawk: 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.
yump: 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.
yump: 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.
alanr1: 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.
alanr1: 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!
alanr1: 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.
woodhawk: Another large contract, £115M, and the share price goes down! Another nice buying opportunity, I suppose.
woodhawk: I wonder what the chances are of BAB being taken over if the share price remains so ridiculously depressed. Any likely bidders at this now 6-year low?
essentialinvestor: Better to stick with facts rather than emotion. The day before the Avincis deal announcement BAB traded around 13.50 a share. They took on over 700 million in debt to part fund the deal. The share price is now down by approx 50% since the acquisition was announced, so saying sentiment has been impacted since, is an understatement. Which of the above is incorrect ? - or is emotive subjection easier than cold hard facts. I don't go short individual stocks, and often have a very different take to FAB. On GSK he and right and I was wrong. Good luck with your holding.
alter ego: fundamentals and logic do not determine the share price. Sentiment does unfortunately and BAB have suffered from negative sentiment for some time despite evidence that their business is resilient. Sentiment does change over time and when it does BAB will be awarded the rating it deserves. Until then, a pretty decent dividend yield is some compensation.
