The big problem as buywell sees it is HS2 and Boris Johnson the new PM HS2 was budgeted at a cost of 50Bn to begin with This has now gone up to 65Bn and my experience of BR spend on big contracts V estimates is that HS2 will come in at over 100Bn when it has been completed. Too expensive for Boris as he has started to promise monies to improve schools, policing and tax cuts. The list of spends will grow longer as we head toward the vote. Where is the money coming from ? There is some fiscal headroom ie Debt that we can take on but opponents won't like that with no deal looming large There is the 39Bn divorce bill to get a deal ... which if BJ does in fact pay with no decent deal for England means his time as PM will probably be even shorter than Mays. So England does NOT pay the 39Bn and Boris can say he is going to spend it on NHS improvements ... which will shut everybody's gobs. Still leaves him needing well over another 50 Bn to find for his spending promises , which could well include cancelling student debts to buy the young vote back in time for the next election. Corbyn will promise that anyway so BJ has to match it or promise it first. This alone will cost in excess of 100Bn so it will have to be phased in stages over 5 years in office. So HS2 has to go and Boris can use the monies for his other promises A token 10Bn to perhaps 20Bn could go to electrify the remaining main line rail tracks in England which would reduce Diesel train use and carbon emissions thus appeasing some greens. The fall of COST on friday IMO came from the realization that HS2 being cancelled by BJ is more likely than not as his becoming the PM looks a shoe-in by Tory Party members with over 60% plus wanting him. Other Construction companies awarded HS2 contracts should be looked at IMO See who hTtps://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/jul/17/hs2-high-speed-rail-contracts-worth-66bn-awarded-uk-chris-grayling BBY chart is weak IMO 190p looks like being tested Worst case scenario chartwise is IMO 100p based upon the previous r major chart lows in 2008 and 2014 dyor

I'm new holder and I've tried to compare BBY with similar-ish GFRD and MGNS.. Galliford Try's results were back in September and the numbers scream value (or value trap?) after this year's 18% dividend cut (Feb), CEO exit to Crest Nicholson (Mar), profit warning giving £40m hit to consensus (April). And one commentator (Anh Hoang through Motley) points out that 85% of earnings are from its Linden Homes brand ... but i thought the bulk of revenue was still from infrastructure etc ? Adjusted p/e 3.87, div yield 11.8% (cover 1.57), share price approx. at or below NAV.. but again figures based on last year results and only 1 major contract award since, of modest proportions. Briefly googling reviews for their house-building divisions, customers seem generally happier with Balfour (about 3.5 out of 5) than the other two, with Galliford's Linden Homes being the worst. Morgan Sindall doing ok i guess better than BBY on some measures. Both have had contract wins recently since after their last results: MGNS: Sellafield $1.6Bn over 20 yrs, Brentwood BC £500m over 30 years BBY: £1.3Bn Dallas roads (presumably much higher rate of turnover?) Finally it is the touted (but apparently successful) 'Build to Last' programme and the slightly better homebuyer's reviews that swings my vote in BBY's favour. Certain broker targets for both BBY and MGNS currently have about 50% upside. Just not sure if its a good sector to be in in macroeconomic terms right now but looking good value on paper. I'm bit concerned tho about BBY's intangibles (25% - what are they? i tried looking back through company news), ROCE (5% vs MGNS 18.5%), and slightly negative cashflow at last results.

dekle - all I could find was mention of the recent RNS - see Header: "Balfour Beatty (BBY) has announced that is has been conditionally selected as part of a joint venture to deliver a $1.7bn (£1.3bn) interstate project on behalf of the Texas Department of Transportation. The group has a 45 per cent share in the joint venture with Fluor Corporation. The full contract award is expected in the autumn with work commencing in early 2020."

Below 52W average now; this is either going to bounce or head further down from here.

Balfour Beatty to beat expectations By Jonas Crosland – Investors Chronicle Shares in Balfour Beatty (BBY) rose by as much as 5 per cent in a falling market after the construction group revealed that group performance for 2018 will be above earlier expectations. The improvement comes as a result of profits from infrastructure investments reaching around £65m. Crucially, the group remains on track to complete the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR) before the end of December without any increased costs. This augurs well for the construction specialist’s performance in 2019, with investors and customers alike taking a longer look at group balance sheets in the wake of Carillion’s collapse. Balfour has been working to assuage any potential worries, paying down all its remaining convertible bonds and delivering a 45 per cent reduction in gross debt over the last 12 months. Average monthly net cash flow is now expected to around £185m, ahead of the previous guidance range of between £140m and £170m. Margins on UK construction are expected to reach up to 3 per cent, which is impressive given the first half disruption caused by the AWPR project. The group continues to remain selective in winning work that meets its margin requirements and has still managed to increase the forecast year-end order book to £12bn, up from £11.4bn a year earlier. On the support services side, the utilities side is being restructured with a view to reducing costs, while the road maintenance side continues to outperform. IC View: Balfour Beatty has sensibly taken steps to strengthen its balance sheet while remaining selective on the work it takes on. At 257p, the shares are trading on an undemanding 11 times forecast earnings. Buy.

Great update yes dekle but not a good time to be buying construction shares IMO. Marshalls had a good update this week, reporting better than expectations but have fallen since.
