dr knowledge: Judging by the share price, nothing has leaked but even a whiff of good news should see the share price take off from here. I'd also like to hear positive updates on the potential asset sales, which if progressing,should also help the share price ;-)
pally12: Broker upgrades share price dropping just goes to show what these broker recommendations are worth not the paper they are written on these are UKs best brokers lol
dr knowledge: Interestingly enough Bruford (as per the chart analysis above), predicted the very same for another stock I hold - MCRO and what he saw in the chart is coming to fruition as we speak. As with BAB the initial upwards spike was sharp & followed by a lull, before slowly but surely continuing the upwards trend. Again, like MCRO, any snippet of good news now should act as rocket fuel for the share price BAB is probably the last of the former FTSE 250 biggies that remains off radar - plenty of upside in the share price if you believe the turnaround will be successful & are willing to be patient. ;-)
kelso29: So last Friday when the FT announced that the write downs would be £700m, Blackrock increased their short from 0.49% to 0.69% taking the share price down to 220p then Gladstone reduced their short from 0.68% to 0.40% making the share price rise so by the end of the day the share price was only slightly down. Not the smartest investment by Blackrock lol Similarly the analyst at Barclays is looking pretty stupid now, after they said on 27 Jan (giving a target price of 145p) to avoid the share given the contract/write down review
bb123: What is the guess of the share price in 4 weeks??
minerve 2: What is the modus operandi of this CEO I wonder? Short-termists rarely become long-termists and hardly represent the regular small investor. Letting the share price drift down is not in the interests of current shareholders if a capital raise is on the cards. Attract a buyer. Sell out, make a few million. Move on to the next one???? Look at what he oversaw at Cobham. It's a disgrace really. The real UK traitors IMO. He should hold is head down in shame. Coming in and having the belief that he was entitled as CEO to choose the direction of the company with little regard to the founding family. Selling UK assets to a PE group for a percentage. All that unique technology with a good future. (If it wasn't that good PE wouldn't buy it - they are generally not stupid). Of course muppet shareholders were pleased because they got a poxy profit to pay for a holiday not realising they were complicit in the long-term destruction of value and the UK in general. What will we have left? Deliveroo, JustEat? Whoopy do! 'Exporting' this stuff does nothing for UK society Brexiteers. Maybe, as a Remainer, I might even entertain the idea of Brexit if the government helped protect what we have left. I see no evidence of this so far.
cocopah: All the best to those who remain invested and hats off to you for your courage. I find it a little more than frustrating (perhaps even unethical) that the last update suggested major problems (with no forward guidance and contract pricing issues) ... followed by some senior execs snapping up a load of shares after the share price had dropped significantly ... now we find ourselves at the same position today as the share price was on the day of the ‘dire’ update with no further explanation. Does anybody else feel this is not the way to treat shareholders?㊅5;‍♂A039;
pally12: One could call the game "burn the bears" – the bears being short-selling hedge funds who had bet last year that the share price had further to fall. They reckoned without a Reddit forum called r/WallStreetBets, where amateur traders gather, in this case to spot a daring counterattack – an uprising to propel the share price higher.
archy147: Well I obviously made a mistake buying in here when i thought it was undervalued at c£3. BAB is now comfortably the biggest loser in my portfolio :( However, whatever troubles they face, the share price is now at its lowest level for....wait for it....15 years. Ie its lower now than during the worst of the covid crunch AND worse than at the nadir of the financial crises in 2008. In other wirds, things can surely only get better from here.
fitton: Not exactly certain how it works but once again there are thousands of small transaction for only 1m odd shares traded.It looks like the share price is being forced down on fairly low volume. Probably computer driven transactions.Does anyone have experience on how it is possible to influence the share price with these small trades?
