The Company has been advised that Paul Stanley, Regional Managing Partner at Begbies Traynor Group plc, has disposed of 22,414 ordinary 5 pence shares in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") at a price of 70.00 pence. That's £15,690. Not a massive amount but if this continues down towards 65p I'll be adding in case of downturn.

Can PWC manage Carillion on its own? Will it subcontract? How many suppliers will be tipped over the edge?

B of E reports credit conditions continue to deteriorate - mainly unsecured. Https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/-/media/boe/files/credit-conditions-survey/2017/2017-q4.pdf?la=en&hash=C98CFDBD974A203985C82D2384D2ECF4D73F53D6 Default rates and losses given default were reported to have increased for total unsecured lending, with further increases for both expected in Q1. In Q4, these increases were reported to have been slightly larger for credit card relative to other unsecured lending, although the survey balances were positive for both (Chart 6). • Lenders reported that default rates on loans to corporates increased slightly for small businesses, while remaining unchanged for medium and large PNFCs. Losses given default on corporate loans were reported to have been unchanged in Q4 for medium and large businesses, but decreased slightly for small businesses. While unsecured consumer defaults have been rising for two years, the rise in small businesses defaulting is a change of trend

I posted ealier that banks had been tightening on unsecured credit for 4 quarters. Secured lending had stopped expanding but was not yet tightening. Https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/-/media/boe/files/credit-conditions-survey/2017/2017-q3.pdf?la=en&hash=E87E10524794B7A1DB784DDB25C41BEF6969F5D4 Well, now it looks like mortgage lending probably is tightening, particularly for 90% plus LTV.

A slump where you can't cut interest rates to stimulate activity could be very nasty.

Yes, I think we are at a similar point in the cycle to 2007. We are near or at the top.

Aleman, I noticed recently that my Bank {Lloyds) have chopped my 'unauthorised' allowance from £500 to £200 without so much as a word. I guess it's just another indicator of Banks pulling their horns in? I feel that vans can be quite a good indicator of general activity since they are at the bottom of the distribution food chain, and perhaps even more of an indicator nowadays given that increasing amounts of consumer spending is online. Another aspect of the van world is the rapid move to so called self-employed van drivers, the mobile 'gig' economy. These individuals are highly disposable due to the employer having no investment in them as employees. So come a recession unemployment in the sector will happen very quickly, along with large numbers of leased vans becoming available. Interesting times might just be around the corner.

Plus a slowly rising £. Plus banks have been tightening on consumer credit offers for 4 quarters (according to B of E). The last recession came after they'd tightened for 5 quarters. Thanks for the van info.

edmundshaw, the main driver for the shift to lighter vans was the imposition of a maximum speed of 90kph (56mph) on the 7.5 ton category, but also compounded by the requirement to take an HGV driving test, plus the expense of doing an HGV drivers CPC course (£500). So the demand for 3.5 ton vans rose sharply but will now be tailing off, at the same time demand for 7.5 tonners will have fallen off. The 3.5 ton category have no more regulations than your car, ie no special licence, no CPC, no specific regulated speed, no tachograph, but you do need more of them to get the same work done. 2018 does feel like it might be the year when a lot of chickens begin to come home to roost. A bizarre car market based on personal leases, over priced housing, rising oil, and brexit, plus a possible rise in interest rates.

There has been a shift from 7.5 ton vans to 3.5 tons over the past two or three years as the regulations for the 7.5 tonnes became too onerous plus you now have to take an HGV test to drive 7.5 tons. So the surge due to the switch to 3.5 tons might now be over, and there are likely fewer 7.5 ton category being registered. It looks like a bit of a slow down in the haulage sector, but it might not be as clear cut as the stats make it look.

Well vans have been getting bigger while phones and other devices have been getting thinner... So more value per load? :-)

UK car sales down 14.4% in December. Van sales down 11.1%. (UK HGV down 5.7% in Q3) These are part of a continuing downward acceleration that indicate UK consumers, small business and haulage firms are in recession. (US auto sales would show a similar trend if not boosted by hurricanes.) It's baffling how UK GDP figures are still positive.

Well worth a watch & listen for ~40mins. Mostly pertains to the Fed but also applicable here. DiMartino used to work for the Fed and is well savvy. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01-03/dimartino-booth-warns-rising-rates-are-accident-waiting-happen-stocks

Thanks for the information about the tip. I have taken a bit of profit here, just to make sure this is a winner for me even if the economy and zombie firms keep going this year. A kind of hedge to my hedge :-)

A similar rise this year would work nicely. I think we will see a steady uplift in co.s going bust - nothing spectacular- but a rise from a low base and a kick in from some operational leverage.

Thanks, Iron Storm. Just one of those gut instinct recommendations then. Same reason I bought, really. I thought recession would hit in 2017. Although I was wrong, the decision to buy BEG has proved a wise one, as the rise in their shares has overcome a fall in the rest of my portfolio last year. UK plc is clearly having a problem adjusting as changing conditions are increasingly weeding some zombies out. I do not wish for things to get worse. I'd be quite happy with a "muddle through". My gains on BEG would probably still be offset by losses elsewhere. I see it as a very useful hedge that helps one sleep at night in tricky times, and one with a dividend that comes in handy. Hopefully, I'm positioned so I will do okay whether things get better or worse - although I still tend to a pessimistic outlook.

From the same article this was the comment on there tip last year. It is perhaps mercenary to cheer a strong year for Begbies Traynor, which specialises in business recovery, but the company climbed 30.6pc as the number of insolvencies ramped up.
