There has been a cluster of director dealing on this one. It's definitely a buy, rising turnover, good cashflow generation and high ROCE. PCP financing for the purchase of vehicles is running into headwinds, possibly the next PPI. This would play into the hands of BCA. If diesel cars are phased out then the second hand marketplace for petrol cars could become incredibly vibrant.

Bought in here this am. Liked this from trading update "The Board is also pleased to announce that it has engaged advisors on the work-streams to be completed for its stated intention to move to the Premium segment of the Official List. This work is expected to be completed over the summer months with the move taking place before the end of the year."

Big 3 million order today. Would be surprised if it was a sell considering the day closed up.

It's funny how advfn attributes buy or sell labels to orders. The 100k order this morning looks like a buy (price is actually higher than its preceding order) and yet it's marked as a sell... Weird.In any case, from the weekly chart the stock still seems to be under accumulation.

Strange that Mascronicguy doesn't put the Market Capitalisation into the headers. This value that the market prescribes is the single most important reference point to derive any comparable metric from. The number of shares alone are meaningless without price. You can have a million shares in a company but it does not mean you are a millionare. They are most probably worthless. Its kind of like having a little sack of coins but not knowing what coins they are. If one has a 14.61% holding in this company, how much is that worth? If the net debt is £255mn what is the EV? how much of the MktCap relates to WBAC etc. Another insight is this Mascronicguy bans posters who differ in opinions to his own. He does this by creating many of the threads for the companies so that he has ownership of the thread. Traits of a bigoted uninformed investor.

Here you go robsy2: ‘Amazon of cars’ sees profits motor Danny Fortson November 27 2016, 12:01am, The Sunday Times British Car Auctions sells a used car every 60 seconds Share Save BCA Marketplace, the company better known by its trading names British Car Auctions and webuyanycar.com, has the industry all sewn up. From the moment a car lands at Ellesmere Port or Grimsby, to when it arrives at the forecourt ready for sale, and is then resold years later, it’s likely BCA will be taking a cut. The company sells a used car every 60 seconds in Britain through its 23 auction sites and online. It is also the biggest buyer via Webuyanycar. Hard-charging boss Avril Palmer-Baunack likes to refer to the company as the “Amazon of cars”. So how has the mega-retailer done in the stormy months since June’s EU referendum? If City scribblers are to be believed, rather well. The company will reveal on Wednesday that profits for the six months through September have jumped by a fifth to £46m, according to broker N+1 Singer. It reckons better things are to come, having slapped a 220p price target on the stock. BCA’s shares closed at 175p, good for a 4% dividend yield. BCA is unlikely to hit that lofty goal via acquisitions. It has snapped up several rivals since Palmer-Baunack took over via the cash shell Haversham Holdings in March last year. She has bought SMA Vehicle Remarketing, car refurbisher Ambrosetti and, in July, Paragon Automotive, which processes and stores cars throughout Britain. That blitz of deals has inserted the company up and down the car ownership chain. Now it is up to Palmer-Baunack to squeeze more profit from the empire, which, including BCA’s European operations, sells 1.5m cars a year. At the heart of her efforts will be growing the finance operation. Four out of every five cars in Britain are bought on finance. That surge has two effects. It increases the turnover of cars because people swap them every few years when finance deals expire. And the interest payments open up a juicy new profit stream beyond sales fees. It’s all to play for at BCA. Buy.

The results will be on 30th November. Yes, I've been been buying all the way down on this dip. Numis have upgraded Bca today from add to buy and raised target from 210 to 220 p. Hopefully the worm has turned.

Does anyone know when the next statements and/or results will be published? Stock is getting rather quiet now. Was expecting a bounce after this pullback to the 10 week moving average.

3 decent sized director buys announced today. I suspect the bottom may be in here (and in MVI, by extension). The Paragon buy seems more interesting the more you think about it. Here's hoping.
