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.
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
dekle: IC have written some negative things in this weeks issue but the share price has ticked up a bit. Very unusual because whenever they recommend a buy or sell the price moves accordingly. I have held them now for some time under the possible misguided belief they are undervalued?
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.
dekle: On a day when IC recommended BBY as a buy the share price fell. Bizarre! Seems to be unloved by PI's since, apart from my comment, no posts here since February. Carillion has helped them achieve better prices for new work and although sales down profits were up. Soon the expensive money will be out, the legacy contracts out and a much better looking BS.
nw99: A short but sweet full-year update from Balfour Beatty (BALF) has reinforced Numis' view that the infrastructure group offers strong recovery potential.While the update declared the group was trading in line with expectations, analyst Howard Seymour took heart from the positive tone.'Body language about confidence to attain industry standard margins and further increase balance sheet strength are both important – and further illustrates why share price weakness on the back of Carillion's woes is illogical,' he said.'We retain the view that Balfour has the strongest recovery potential in the sector couples with balance sheet strength, which makes it a key pick on a recovery basis in the construction sector in the coming year.'Seymour rates the shares a 'buy' on a 350p target price.
haywards26: I am surprised the interim results were the element driving the share price higher....
tiger20: Balfour Beatty own Blackpool Airport which is now closed or closing. Could be something in the budget about making this area an Enterprise Zone with government funding which may help BBY share price today. imo dyor
smurfy2001: Balfour Beatty builds up rise after buy note Barclays analysts say recent share price fall is overdone and move from hold to buy Share 0 inShare 6 Email In a downbeat market, one of the day's bigger risers is an unfamiliar one. Balfour Beatty has been in the doldrums following profit warnings, a failed bid from Carillion and general market malaise. But the company's share price decline could have been overdone, according to Barclays. The bank has raised its recommendation from hold to buy and its target price from 245p to 270p. Analyst Manu Rimpela said: After several profit warnings in the Construction division, two chief executives (it currently has no chief executive) and a failed approach by Carillion, the shares have been one of the weakest performers in the sector, down 24% year to date. Given the lack of visibility and clear strategy, it would be daring to argue for a sudden, sharp Construction recovery. However, the current share price implies zero value for Construction (excluding joint ventures), which is overly negative. The announced sale of Parsons Brinkerhoff addresses both the balance sheet concerns and together with the stable PPP-assets portfolio anchors the valuation. This combined with the overly negative market sentiment provides an opportunity. The positive comments have helped lift Balfour 5.4p or nearly 2.5% to 225.6p.
