dave whitby: Agreed Woodhawk! For the life of me, can't understand what collective forces can drive a good company"s share price so low?
alanr1: I don't post much these days but I have recently bought quite a few of these shares at an average of 685 - showing a loss at the moment, but that will change in time - low PE ratio and good dividend, with lots of guaranteed revenue imo. Only a matter of time imo before the share price rises again. It will happen and I am patient :-)
alanr1: Seem cheap to me. Bought in at around 690. I can wait until sense prevails. Coming out of the FTSE100, exdiv and out of favour can't help - but only a matter of time before the share price rises imo!
woodhawk: My hunch, fwiw, is that this is the final capitulation stage of the long decline since early 2014. The share price has now fallen more than 50% over that period.I usually find it most rewarding to buy shares when they are very unloved - like this. I just hope I'm not too premature.
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?
alanr1: A deferred notification I suspect and the trade happened before the market closed, so no way to say if it was a buy or a sell. I would put my money on a buy because the shares went up! If the share price continues to rise tomorrow, then it was a buy! Still very good value imo!
1spotter: Directors' purchases noted. Current share price does not reflect financial ratios, more the reality of future cash generation capacity and growth potential. Ask the companies whose payments were delayed by the Marine Division to boost the current interims. It's a Ponzi corporation.
woodhawk: You can make a chart say whatever you want it to say. In my view this share is currently massively oversold and there will be an inevitable strong bounce, perhaps also this is a final capitulation in the long recent share price decline and it will now revert into an ascending channel. I hope it is the latter as I now have a substantial holding at an average price of less than 700p.
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.
