our haven: Dr SmithCorrect but just to be continuing to win contracts or for the contracts to be there to win gives a much needed confidence boost in this sector.I agree with you that the share price woefully undervalues this company but reflects confidence therefore in line forecasts are not priced in.
dave whitby: Interesting! A 1.228m sale has gone through at 13.27 at £5.216 and has made no difference to the share price rise!
yump: Minerve2 Many people think in binary. As in: share price not performing, therefore break it up. There isn’t necessarily a sound reason.
dave whitby: There are currently 39m shares held by shorters. So how long will they just watch the share price rise without closing their short position? With a Market Update due on the 25th September, which is likely to be positive, BAB's upward run will only continue.
our haven: Good first reaction to The Times story this morning, share price very much on the rise. Be interesting to see how things go today.
bench2: The share price is showing signs of life on below average volume , lots of small buyers . Do they know something we are missing ?
stevebarrett86: Hopefully a decisive new broom that'll sweep out some of the deadwood and get the share price back up to where it should be. Time will tell I guess.
bor491: 'So do you want directors who are financially shrewd, or directors that buy because they want the share price to look better ?' I want directors who have meat in the bone and who have a self-interest in doing their best for the company - AND who suffer like us shareholders when the stock price goes down!
yump: Why on earth should directors buy just to give confidence to investors. If I wasn't dependent on a short term share price and I was a director, I certainly wouldn't buy unless it made financial sense, regardless of shorters or anything else going on in the short term. Also, I've never understood how it makes financial sense to have your job, your pension and your investments in one pot. Unless you've got such a wad that it doesn't matter. If I were a director of a PLC, I'd have my money in other pots. So do you want directors who are financially shrewd, or directors that buy because they want the share price to look better ?
dave whitby: There were 1.17% of BAB shares shorted on 13/07/17. The share price then was £8.57. At close of play today the share price was £8.572 and on 29/05/18 there were 5.89% shorted. So my question is why haven't the "shorters" unwound their position further? They still need to buy back 29.7m shares which should drive the share price higher. Can someone please explain what's going on?
