Im guessing CKN have been briefing institutions about the legal case. They have probably been told that its spurious and has very little chance of success at the amounts being claimed.

Got to be a bid announcement heading our way....theres hasnt been that many buyers to drive the price up its going crazy....8 - 950 in a couple of days ...its took us 6 months to see that sort of gain in the past...should we have a minutes silence for those who headed for the exits at 8-8.50 ........

It seemed a wise precaution in view of the speed the price moves at and I had a nice profit since 761 so no complaints. Edit: judging by the way shes rising today that may have been bad timing. Wonder whats driving it?

Sandbank - I think the falls were overdone and we are unlikely to see below 800 any time soon. The court cases will take a long time to come to court and I wouldn't be suprised if they don't ever get that far. In the meantime focus will go back to trading conditions and should see a recovery in due course back to new highs if BDI stays around current levels. CKN is also the kind of business which private equity would love to get their hands on. If they were to bid I think 15 pounds+ isn't out of the question.

I'm out today @ £9.205, averaged buys @ £7.80. Will look to get back in once more becomes known about the libel cases. Taking most money off the table for now as May is fast approaching.

NICKCDUK: I admire your nerve in going in when clearly the price was still sliding. Well done! Was that 760 or thereabouts the bottom do you think?

Im out at 887p today. I picked up more stock yesterday at 803p to add to my 780p stock on Friday, so Im more than happy with my return in such a short space. The market reaction was OTT to spurious Russian legal claims. I will look to enter again on any spikes lower as I like the medium term outlook with the BDI being as high as it is.

Thanks all, though I think some estimates of cash mentioned have are a bit high! After the 23m odd of bonuses and the divi cash probably fell to about 46m, however cash flow from the first quarter should have been excellent - take a look at a few bulk carriers like www.ds-norden.com or www.goldenocean.no... Invested here for some time to come by the looks of things but hopefully results early in May from BMS, which some have mentioned, can help as my first choice. All be it smaller and hence less liquid but this sector is still humming!

Dog Catcher. Yes you are correct that the actions are in London, which is a relief. Apparently they involve third party commissions to offshore companies paid in connection with ship building contracts,and involve previous management at Sovcomflot to the highest level.The new management are trying to recover these payments with CKN caught in the middle. It could go on for a long time but the figures they had to post are the maximum and would hopefully be much lower in actuality.

Experience shows that the outcome of all litigation is uncertain and sometimes there are surprising twists and turns in the process from first instance decision in the High Court up to the Court of Appeal.The worst part is that it takes months, possibly several years for this to play out. Doesn't help that we know very little about the substantive issues in the claims.

FT article stated that case has been brought to London High court, not Russia which is good news

Thanks from me too for your excellent post West. I think the current price (801 ish) is an over-reaction. There may be buying opportunities at this or lower prices over the next month or so. I am resigned to sitting tight for as long as it takes to recover but it could be 6 months or so. But then I've held for 20 months or so I am mainly a long-term investor when it comes to CKN. It's just unfortunate that I had increased my position significantly in the last month or two.

Me too gorse.....this is a setback but the company has the cash to put this to bed...this year will be a bad one (worst case scenerio) but overall the future looks good...the quote price is now 8.25 more buyers to sellers at the moment...

TDC you are right and this surely makes a big difference to the SBE case. At least we can expect less political inolvement.

WCountryboy. Thanks for your excellent post. I did reluctantly sell out about half of my holding at 860; it would have been 903 if the online order had worked and/or my broker had got on with the job more quicky over the telephone from Spain. I was in SBE, AIM quoted Oily in Russia, when that was suspended whilst legal issues and much else were sorted out. It has recovered and more than doubled in value since then but the legal case still rumbles on in the Russian and other courts over ownership of an oilfield. Here we have been told almost nothing about the issues involved and clarity in the early stages will be essential to clear the air and let shareholders understand what is really at stake and what the blunder was. Its good they have got the cash to pay up if they lose but would have been better seeing them use it to advance the business. I totally agree about the prospects looking good. Till now this has been an extremely well run company and with shipping being increasingly in demand they will continue to grow the business so this I think we can presume is an unfortunate glitch. I do have confidence that they will continue to trade well in the future but my fingers are crossed about how they will come out in the Russian courts. I hope they will reveal more details very shortly.
