Sanks, you alway herald the big rises Hedge funds should start a sheep shaggers fund, putting a million into every share that Sanks predicts penny shareprices. They would make a fortune. Please start slagging off Barclays we need arise there now

Happy shaggy days. Its still a potential for that 9p level 4 sheepshaggers target...however, if it sells its US side of the business, and does what i thought it won't do till it hits 9p...then it could be back to £8 pretty soon. Stagecoach got rid of the US side when the nipple hit the fan...FGP's nipple is still waiting to hit the fan..unless they do whats right and get rid! Hope this helps Sanks...trading amongst genuine nobs

Dropping. Was it the interim statemen, or the purchase of the fuel efficient busses? http://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/firstgroup-orders-274-green-buses-001543204.html FirstGroup orders 274 'green' buses. Skinny, care to add a comment on your charts?

Daily telegraph 2014 tips - FirstGroup had a pretty rough 2012, when it was denied a multi-billion-pound contract to run rail services on the West Coast Main Line. Unfortunately for the transport group's shareholders, 2013 turned out to be little better. In May, it announced a deeply discounted £615m rights issue. Then earlier this month, US activist investor Sandell Asset Management wrote to the board calling for a break-up of the group. Sandell claims support from other shareholders, but analysts have largely dismissed the hedge fund's transformation plan, pointing out management extensively reviewed other options before announcing the rights issue. But Sandell's presence on the shareholder register could be a catalyst for management to accelerate its turnaround. FirstGroup is investing £1.6bn over four years. It has named a new chairman, John McFarlane of Aviva, which was well received by the markets. Clearly there are risks and miracles won't happen overnight, but it might finally be time to climb back on board the FirstGroup bus.

Looking at the long term, they are undeniably worth more to keep than dispose of now.

I understand Sandell only has a stake of 3.1% in FGP (according to the Telegraph). Is that enough to apply pressure on the BOD? Perhaps he will need to buy more shares and/or get other investors on his side.

could be interesting for sp--- today's press "An activist investor is flying to London to put pressure on FirstGroup to break itself up, according to the Sunday Telegraph. Swedish billionaire Thomas Sandell will meet FirstGroup investors and his hedge fund will give a presentation at a Bank of America Merrill Lynch conference. He wants the transport group to sell Greyhound in the US and spin off its US yellow school buses and transit business. FirstGroup rejected the plan in December. A large investor told the paper the proposals were "fundamentally interesting" but that it was not clear they could be executed."
