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.
charlie360: @schroedar, true, but what if there is a low ball bid for the whole business triggered by low share price which may force small shareholders into a sale if the majority holders are tired of the ceo and accept ?
schroedar: All CEOs are terrified of misleading the market under MARs and as such their lawyers will be telling them to manage expectations to the downside. They also care very little for short term share price movements, however infuriating it is for retail punters Most telling is no new shorts are being opened and volume has tailed off to very little. £6m today for a £1bn company.
pepepepe73: @charlie360, our comments regarding the orderbook where related to Buy/sell stock orders, not related to BAB business orderbook. Regarding business profitability, this business is not a good business. You can have a delay (or increase manpower needed) in your contract performance and you evaporates your contract profitability. Anyway, I think BAB stock price is very cheap at these levels of trading. My concern / opportunity is why CEO has been so harmful with current shareholders in latest trading update. To be honest, Is him the CEO or the enemy?
pepepepe73: Yeah the point is you do not have incentive enough to buy BAB shares right now as BAB management has put a big black cloud above its stock price: uncertainty (NAV vs profitability vs net debt). I think that new CEO is gonna hurt very badly the current shareholders base. Typically this the way of doing when a new CEO arrives to a company with many hurdles and try to build up a turnaround story with a huge buffer (more capital from shareholders pockets)
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.
netcurtains: Looks like 400 is the pretty average price this stock should be trading at. I guess with dodgyness thrown in perhaps should be trading at 300. So looks like the upside is about 100p to 200p more to rise. The downside is probably about 20p to 40p more to fall? Assume odds of both probably similar (given 12 months) So on face value probably (even with the accounts thing) a reasonably good bet
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?
dave whitby: Can't understand why BAB don't publicly announce they intend to start buying shares back at these silly prices? Surely that would mark a current low for the share price and drive the price up forcing shorters to close their position and further increase the share price? What is wrong with this argument?
