Well, IN THE KNOW: Liberum says buy FirstGroup after US bus unit disposal m reiterated its Buy rating on FirstGroup saying the sale of the transport firm's US school bus operations will lead to a more simplified company...

The bus and any rail profits will also have to ensure a 6 billion pension scheme is fully funded.

Could have purchased for 35p end July last year. Get 30p back before end thus year, you would have your entire investment effectively for free. Stuff that dreams are made of. Does this represent fair value at 60p ps without the north American operations

This is doing very well today given overall market is getting a hammering. Up the second largest amount on ftse250 today on no update, hopefully means news is afoot.

Knowing -> Agreed, and at this price these are still looking very cheap. I invested earlier this year and looking at the 3/6 month chart these are heading towards 100p in the next 4-6 weeks (if not sooner) There may be some volatility on the way but I'm certain the upside looks promising.

Worrying times ahead for UK bus/rail operators, IMHO. Operators are typically running 80-90% of their usual mileage, but carrying only 15-20% of the usual passengers. Government grants are filling the gap, but these are due to end 8 weeks after lockdown ends. With the government message (or personal preference, new habits) still being 'avoid public transport' and 'work from home if you can', there is bound to be a huge revenue shortfall.

Added some more here. Like the recovery so far and with us moving out of lockdown can only see this recovering further.

Johnson will set out his "road map" out of lockdown on 22 February. We should have a better idea by then.

I agree Joe, thats why I suggested 'without news' . (either positive or negative)With news or external factors such as the opening up of society or extended lockdowns this will possibly move more (either way)All of that said, there is still value in the company either in assets if sold or as an ongoing business with the right leadership.

I am not a chartist either but, like most other shares, this one is dependent upon extraneous influences right now, and not previous chart readings.
