We know that the results will be lumpy and dependent upon the cases dropping into a specific period. The shorter the period the more volatile the results will appear. It won't be helpful to the share price probably damaging. It's in the nature of the business - so if you don't like it, find a different stock to invest in. ....rather than boring us complaining continually.

It's not too much to ask for a brief update

Yep - and recent weakness - against wider equity market direction - probably due to Peterson

I suspect management struggle with the idea of shorter-period, limited info updates. Given their backgrounds they could be worried that anything less than the full picture disclosed at the time of mandatory reporting events gives a potentially misleading picture and opens them up to....er....litigation! Let's face it, even the full picture when given is often difficult enough to interpret. I feel confident that management will be doing as comprehensive a US II roadshow as possible (given Covid) after the full year results which are usually around 20-25 March. Just my opinions.

As long term BUR AIM investors, we're kinda used to the long radio silences, but looking at it as NYSE investor ... you've got a listing - absolute silence, and a downward chart, (whilst most other charts are pointing upwards). It's not a great look.

1aconic - I agree we do not want excessive updates, but to provide no updates at all is also too extreme - surely there can be a happy medium? I also agree that we want Burford's lawyers and management to be fully focused on running the business, but that is precisely why you have an investor relations team to focus on keeping investors updated. This is not just cosmetic either - better PR should help with the share price, which in turn provides a cheaper source of funding to invest in new cases and ultimately lead to higher earnings, so this shouldn't be neglected as it seems to be.

1aconic, I don't think it unreasonable to ask when next results are likely to be, others here would like an indication if not an exact date due to Covid.

On that point, what is the best source to follow Petersen? I tried to log in a while ago and it didn't work.

RAR: If you really, really want periodic updates (almost daily at the moment), just follow the Peterson case progress. You can do that without bugging BUR. The harsh (and unfortunate in some ways) reality is that Peterson is by far going to be the biggest driver on share price over the next year or two.

Same old themes again... BUR are busy earning squillions for shareholders in the background - their time is better spend doing that. Earnings are by their instrinsic nature lumpy (even at an annual level). Excessive periodic reporting to a hyperacttive market is only likely to compound volitility. Why would a long term holder (or a company) want that? All the money BUR earns in the background will (hopefully) all deliver to long term holders in the share price at some stage...

No news at all since listing in US, can't really expect to get on radars.

Is there definitely an update in February? My understanding was last year was as one-off - Burford doesn't normally provide any trading updates, so was expecting to wait for the actual results around Easter time.

700 gone, 650 next support. Update due early Feb, can't come soon enough (as long as its positive)

According to Stocko it's going to pay a 48c dividend in 2021 - no idea where that comes from.

Yeah there seems to be a sell bot running, swamping any buying, but when it's turned off, it should bounce back to the general trend.

Huge number of trades, over 1500. I hope BUR stick with AIM.

The whole market is down and this tends to fall more than the wider market on down days. I also think in the absence of news for at least a few months this will just drift aimlessly.

Anybody have ideas why this had a bit of a dip today?

US investors far less interested in dividend than capital growth. Dividend cover for US listed cos generally much higher than UK cos. Mind you, with the volatility we've endured for the past 18-24 months I wouldn't mind receiving something on a regular basis, even if just a 1-2% yield.

We get our share via capital growth When the business matures and gets to a steady state size then you would expect to see a lowish regular dividend with regular buy backs/specials But that ought to be quite a few years away

I can't invest my dividends at Burs historic rates of return Thus if they start paying a regular, proper dividend it's a signal that the business has matured and there's going to a lot less explosive growth/returns

I also recall the dividend was cancelled at the same time that Bogart got a tasty bonus, so he's doing alright! I know the logic for not paying dividends, but symbolically it's important, and the lack of it shows a lack of confidence and a lack of respect for shareholders. It doesn't need to be big, just the same as before. Can't blame stateside investors sitting in the red since listing, for thinking of Burford "to hell with this, I want some return", which they've had in spades, almost anywhere except here!

@William: Why wouldn't you want dividends? The busyness makes profits, the owners should get their share. Would also entice longterm investors.
