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.
essentialinvestor: Had a small amount.
essentialinvestor: Bought a small amount this morning. Major potential (short term) risk is any further lock downs, which would prove very costly. Longer term the current price looks reasonable(ish). If wider equity markets were to sell off again, this can easily trade below £2 imv.
dekle: I'm not keen on buybacks. They rarely improve the share price. A juicy dividend has a far greater impact in my opinion. Current situation suggests they might be better using the funds to get discounts from suppliers for immediate payment or other methods of improving profit.
smurfy2001: Balfour Beatty delays buyback amid virus turmoil The construction group's board had been poised to announce a £200m share buyback this week, Sky News learns. hTtps://
scotches: Every chance this is on its way to yet another visit to the 300p level seen but never sustained multiple times over the last decade. A decent trading update and more political certainty should continue the upward push. Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets UK, said: “Balfour Beatty has continued to go from strength to strength under the guidance of Leo Quinn. “Since he took over in 2015, the focus on higher margin business has paid dividends and despite taking a hit from the Carillion fallout, the business has continued to look solid, though like the rest of the construction sector its share price has suffered as a result of the ongoing uncertainty around the UK economy and the Brexit deadlock.” 300p visits Apr 2010 Dec 2010 Jul 2012 Sep 2012 Feb 2014 Apr 2014 Jan 2018 May 2018
steviec1: Very positive trading update today ...bodes well for the future and hopefully the share price will move accordingly
essentialinvestor: Sector sentiment has really crushed the share price BBY has always struck me as a cut above the rest, famous last words perhaps!.
cordwainer: 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.
