Perhaps a sympathy decline following Jefferies negative analysis on Qinetiq yesterday which knocked their price.

To add, some brokers are forecasting an share price in the £10 area, if that turns out to be true then BAE are still buying at a good price.

How long will the management keep buying these shares. Money could be spent in a better way. We all know that the defence shares will correct during 2023 when there is peace in sight with Russia. The management could have bought these at around £6 rather than wasting shareholder money and buying these at the current price. I am most definitely a long term holder and look forward to the dividend but I do not agree with this short sighted share purchase scheme at these all time high share price. They could have declared a special dividend!

Military strategic tension is either going to explode (with the share price), or continue to be raised ((wh will believe any proposed intentions of Ruaaia and China), in either case military budgets will continue to increase. I am holding, prospectively buying.

Is this part of the start of a much wider and more protracted down trend in the share price ?

Which is why I said they are a safe company, they aren't going anywhere and will always be a preferred supplier to UK defence. But the Tornado contract with Saudi has at most until 2030, that is the planned out of service date despite the Saudi Airforce spending millions updating it the last few years - partly to make aure it will last that long (with a steadily reducing fleet). Some of the Tornado upgrade contracts struggle to make a profit, but of course BAE profit from the repair/replacement of parts and the still substantial workforce employed on Tornado in Saudi. BAE are prepared struggle along on Tornado because they really want more Typhoon sales which with follow on support contracts which will run for many years. When Germany stopped arms sales to Saudi over Yemen and Khashoggi it caused a lot of problems for BAE as of course some Tornado parts are built/repaired by Germany. The Ukraine war will have a long term positive effect for BAE because as you say stocks need to be replaced, and the renewed interest in defence spending from NATO as well. But the share price in the short term can be a fickle thing, just as the price shot up when the war started it will fall again when it ends, though not to previous levels. The share price is riding high because there has been nothing but 'good news' recently from a company point of view. If nothing changes I think the share price still has a bit further to run, a major piece of negative news as mentioned in my previous post I am convinced will see a reversal in the share price Look what just happened to LGEN another rock solid company thanks to the recent mini budget. LGEN quickly came out with a robust statement pointing out that they are not effected by the LDI crisis but are still a good 20% down. BAEs divi of 3% will of course be unaffected by any bad news, but LGENs divi of now 8% is also well covered and safe.

Interesting article:

Last time the US stalled on arms sales to Saudi the British government stepped in and BAE reaped the benefits (Tornado), thanks to that contract I secured over 30 years employment in the Middle East. But back then we had the iron lady in charge not the torys of today, and BAE did not have the amount of business it has with the US at stake that it has now. A difficult position for BAE if the US goes hard over on Saudi, on the one hand they won't want to jeopodise business with there largest customer the US (and growing) but also 12% of business in Saudi with hopefully more Typhoon sales to come is also something they won't want to loose as the lucrative Tornado contract is getting towards the end of its life. BAE share Price has had a good run over the last couple of years and the company will always be 'safe', but any bad news now will see the share price head south - be that the US pulling out of Saudi, the end of ukraine/russia war, or Liz Truss renegading on her 3% of GDP going to defence promise. I'll wait for BAEs next trading statment but am tempted to sell up on the next share price surge as with a 3% dividend I think there are better options right now. Can always buy in again after 1 of the 3 scenerios above happen and the share price has taken a hit

Retail investors can take advantage of the increased share price due to increased buy volume and sell should they wish to - so why do only institutions benefit?...

There is no generally increased share price due to the buyback. This is a popular fallacy amongst small investors, that BBs somehow prop up the share price The reason that insts benefit is that they achieve a very slightly higher price at that very point of the buyback for those wanting to sell some shares so for the sort of volume in which they deal it may be worthwhile, but there is no general share price rise due to the BB over the period allocated to it.

...If they don’t wish to take this opportunity it is to take advantage of having an increased proportion of future company - so why do only institutions benefit?...

What small investor cares about the proportion of the company they hold? I suggest most don't even know or care. The increased proportion from the BB is infinitesimal for us. I've got a fair sized holding in BA. in my income port, which I've held for a long time just for the divis. I havn't the faintest idea what proportion of the issued capital I hold and how it will be changed by the BB. Such info is of no interest.

...The retail investor of-course has the option of tax advantages of CGT vs the higher income tax rate of divis...

The hell with tax, I want that BB money in my pocket, not wasted on inst dumpers. Tax situations for individuals vary greatly between us, you can't assume anything in that regard. Let me have that improved divi and let me take care of my tax.

...What have the Romans ever done for us??


BBs vs divis is an old argument which I've had many times over the years but I've never read a convincing case from the small guys' viewpoint in favour of BBs. I am always surprised by the support of some for it though I hesitate to use the term "turkeys voting for Christmas". 😱 Unfortunately we are irrelevant amongst big caps where insts rule the market so nobody cares what we think. Recently BBs have become a new pandemic, with companies falling over themselves to acquire the bug. I suspect an opposing director would these days be considered weird. Emperor's new clothes?

I assume today's BA. share price action reflects potential loss of Saudi orders due to oil price massacre?
