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 ?
smcni1968: I think the emergency helicopter business is weighing on the share price- regulated by the EU so Brexit uncertainty.
yump: With the markets dropping, those who profit from individual share price drops will have been looking for anything that shows signs of weakness and particularly businesses which are opaque to many people or have some sort of basic scare story that can be 'expanded'. We'll see what happens once the Dow has gone to 24,000 and the FTSE 250 to 18,000. Those seem to be pretty likely, although the 250 could drop below 18,000 before seeing support, judging by the past levels. Keeping the tinder dry for the moment...
bigbertie: Silence from Company, Government and any regulatory type organisation?. Is it not a concern that a major company which has attracted short-sellers but whose share price has stabilised around 700p is suddenly subjected to vitriolic attack from a concealed source, forcing the market value down by another £500 million? Edit - and it is a major defence contractor! I wonder who could be behind a plan like that.........
yump: Click on someone's username. Then click on 'Posts'. Then you'll see what the poster is up to. Sometimes they've only started posting on one thread very recently, coinciding with either a sudden rise or a sudden fall in a share price.
alter ego: spot on Dogwalker. Minerve pops up on discussion boards where the share price is falling and pours poison into the ears of anyone daft enough to listen to his gloomy predictions.
dogwalker: ....who publish their pseudo 'research' to coincide with apparent share price weakness, hoping to pick up on a bit of downside momentum. The problem for them here is that the downside momentum has already produced a 50% share drop since 2014, & their story-line has already been worn thin. The hope now for shorts is a price collapse below 620 or so. Otherwise, with more sellers having been suckered in recently,there's liable to be a decent rebound from the double bottom now being made. The really good news of course is the juicy number of shorts that need buying back suddenly.
1spotter: The company's performance on the current BN refuel in its Plymouth refit facility is fascinating. Which is to say, severely not good. It's an existential threat to the company's share price if Government action/reaction reflects the importance of the ongoing deterrent programme.
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?
