Wonder if someone will come along and buy KIE and COST and try and get some decent management over the top to drive cash/profits??

If considering buying, it could be worth waiting for one of the potential turn dates next week. imo.

Correct Huge Turnover and peanuts profits And I agree COST is being shorted today But that's not illegal yet

Invested in Costain years ago but had to look in this morning. It does seem to be a rather harsh reaction but the construction sector is completely out of favour and not unreasonably, far too many companies have taken on work at a loss over the last 10 years. Margins are so thin that it only takes a couple of big contracts to go bad and all of a sudden the whole company is at risk. That does not appear to be the case here but they are getting tarred with the Keir etc brush.

so what ? the market knows all that For me this is all about HS2 now Will Boris kick it into touch , save around 50 BN and spread say 15 BN on railway electrification projects This would give him say 35 BN to spend elsewhere eg cancel all student debts which he will have to do to beat Corbyn next time

At £2. Market cap is £215 million with £65 million in the bank = £150 million market cap and making £30 million a year in post-tax profits.

The Buiding/Contruction Sector has not been a good place to be invested in the last couple of years under May and her dithering cabinet. It seems to be getting worse as her delay till Oct 31st causes yet more pain 185p support tested soon IMO

They have mentioned 3 projects are delayed and 2 were cancelled. Besides that... what are they not saying that insiders know to plummet this so horrifically?

Good work Shows the value of charts bamboo2 17 Jun '19 - 21:56 - 5702 of 5708 0 0 0 william, Good question. Historical support levels on way to H&S tp [187.5] are approx, 265, 250, 233, 210. I could not find any unfilled gaps between the price now and the H&S target. A cluster of potential turns exists approx 2-3/7/2019 Could there be an update around this time as in previous years?

Trading update 2nd July. Hopefully will bounce off support. Buy to sell ratio makes me think otherwise

My info refers to problems in a number of consultancy based contracts. Clients are experiencing very poor service as the co attempts to make money from outsourcing by cutting staff.
