From a broader article in the FT about insolvencies in China " "In the UK, Brexit is forecast to lead to a jump of almost a tenth in insolvencies, even in Euler Hermes’ base-case scenario that an agreement is finally reached. In the event of a disorderly Brexit, corporate failures are expected to rise by 15 per cent or more, depending on the terms on which the UK leaves the trading bloc."

Perhaps worth remembering that BEG was at 140p back in 2009, and that when it was a smaller company. We really have had a run of lean years for insolvencies, with zombie companies on the increase for many years, and many staggering on due to cheap money, with the number sharply turning up (on a narrow definition of zombie) after the crisis of 2009 and the dramatic emergency crash in interest rates from 4.5% to 0.5% in a matter of months. With interest rates on the rise (at least in the US - the UK is not following at the moment for obvious Brexit reasons, but I expect that to be temporary) some of those companies are going to find interest rate burdens no longer sustainable, and many other companies will enter zombie status (defined - loosely - as where where interest payments exceed profits) as interest rates push on upwards.

The 2.5p rise since this morning's open (which ADVFN has completely managed to miss) seems to be because Investors Chronicle have updated their coverage with a BUY at 68.4p. ADVFN still show the price at 58.25p when the current spread has risen to 60.4p-61.8p Https://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/tips-ideas/2018/12/20/begbies-traynor-expects-activity-pick-up/

That's a 50% increase in offices handling insolvency from Feb 2017's 44.

I'd guess business is picking up and they've started handling insolvency work from some or all of the Springboard, CJM, Pugh and Eddisons offices that were acquired in recent years after taking their time to prepare for it.

Something strange just happened. After creeping up 1 by 1 for years, the number of offices quoted on the website just jumped from 55 to 66.

All good stuff. Bought back my top slices now, and looking forward to next year with some confidence here! (I had thought over 70p the price was a bit ahead of itself. Maybe, maybe not, anyway I got lucky...)

In a nutshell: We remain confident of delivering increased revenue and earnings in line with current market expectations for the full year.

A tad disappointing I thought but activity levels are starting to increase so it bodes well for 2019/20. Sounds like the property business will have a quiet H2 though so the core business will need to perform strongly in H2. With all the doom and gloom around, it’s probably well placed.

Well, here's me wondering if they might go up a bit with the 14% dividend rise and they've fallen 10%. It's an incredibly tough market out there - selling bad news and selling good news, too! Current year yield now looks set for 4.4% for a contracyclical company that should see significant growth soon with the economy slowing and insolvencies accelerating.

I had hoped revenue performance would be slightly better though the contingent payments due next period would have given a lift. Also I think that activity is well up in the last few months of the calendar year which hopefully gives scope for upgrades. Not unhappy but dazzle saved for next year by the looks.

Interesting, thanks Aleman. I knew I could rely on you to explain so clearly! So, Trump may be correct on the Fed policy then as well!!

The historical average is that long rates tend to be about 2% higher than short rates to compensate for tying money up longer (much like the building society). If the yield curve flattens or inverts, as short rates get too high, it means markets think the central bank will be forced to cut short rates in the near future. Flattened bond markets are telling everyone a slowdown is coming. If the Fed does not cut quickly enough and rates remain too high, the bond market will increasingly discount recession and buy long bonds. As evidence of slowdown mounts, nobody wants to buy a 2% T-bill when it increasingly looks like it might have to be cut to zero next year. Instead they sell the short end, driving short rates up further, preferring to fix at 2% for 25 years. The flattening bond market is saying that the Fed is missing downturn signs and will have to cut by more later instead of a small cut now. 10s of thousands of bond investors are seeing slowdown. A few in the Fed do not. The Fed has an incredibly consistent history of getting it wrong and driving the major economies into recession when a small cut earlier might have restricted it to a slight slowdown.

The article is on US government bonds. 10 year versus 2 year. So, I think what it’s saying is that a 2 year bond is now more expensive than a 10 year one.

I see BON just indicated a sales downturn worse than the last recession, with Q3 LfL anticipated at -12%. Unfortunately, I hold them. If the high street is worse than the last recession, I think BEG are going to be very busy. Bonmarché chief executive Helen Connolly said: “The current trading conditions are unprecedented in our experience and are significantly worse even than during the recession of 2008/9.

There are different types of yield curves. Government bonds are most cited. One or two alternative US commercial yield curves started inverting last summer.

This is very interesting evidence of an impending recession, probably next year. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-46530860 Yield curve inverted. Any thoughts Aleman as no doubt you are all over this? I bow to your better knowledge!

I was with an insolvency firm yesterday - they are maxed out on insolvencies at the moment. I would expect with Beg's greater reach they are doing very well too. Whilst the market is well down - bit surprising they have fallen so much. They have just triggered my Stop Loss. But (Foolishly??) I am ignoring for now.
