scotches: hTTps://www.hl.co.uk/shares/share-research/202108/balfour-beatty-steady-but-not-soaring Hargreaves view. "However, even in the good times margins in the construction sector are pitifully thin. An operating profit margin of 3% is pretty impressive in the UK, while in the US as low as 2% is good going. Such low margins leave little room for error and unfortunately Balfour, like the wider construction business, is accident prone." "Still, we've been impressed by Balfour's ability to win, and keep hold of, business contracts during the disruption. A growing order book is not something all construction companies can boast. Quinn's more disciplined approach to managing the business also means the balance sheet is in reasonably good shape."
bigbertie1: deckle, there was another negative. remedial work is required on concrete slabs cladding a high-rise building in London. BBY has a liability but is waiting for engineers reports to estimate the cost of work. It could vary a lot but they say maximum £50m. Expect a hit in the yearend numbers! So yet again a construction company stumbles on fixed price contracts and high-rise cladding. Disppointing.
dekle: Results tomorrow, perhaps some leakage causing the price to drop?
dekle: In a sea of red BBY showing blue
dekle: According to my calculations they have bought back £18.5m's worth of shares so far and the original target spend was £50m. Is that correct? If so I feel the next buys are more likely to have an impact on the share price, hopefully??
dekle: Confirmation of the extension of HS2 to Crewe by Parliament today must mean potential more construction work for BBY
dickbush: Very rare to see a buy back these day that enhances the NAV. It's supposed to increase the share price because a. It decreases the outstanding/supply of its shares b. It increases eps because cash is earning very little. These days, nothing. Just be glad we don't own shares in a company that is borrowing to boost its share price and make the company executives rich while destabilising its viability e.g many companies in the US just before the outbreak of covid-19.
dekle: Looks like the buy back has had a negative effect on the share price. Never in favour of a buy back unless it enhances the net asset value. I doubt if it does that in this case unless I'm wrong. On the other hand if they managed to sell the treasury shares for a profit without depressing the share price I could see a benefit in a share buy back. Please offer an opinion, thank you, Dekle
essentialinvestor: Another national lockdown might be incredibly expensive for BBY. As mentioned a few weeks ago was surprised the share price had not begun to react already.
essentialinvestor: BBY's owned infrastructure book is now valued at circa £1 billion - and will pay out cash returns year after year. So the market effectively values the rest of BBY at approx £525 million. Given that fixed priced construction projects now represent less than 30% of the current order book (a number that is continuing to fall) BBY looks a decent medium term investment near current share price levels imv.
