Bearing in mind the next results are already going to beat market expectations ( as noted in the last trading update )but the question is by how much. We could see the share price jump quite dramatically from current levels and we could easily see an increase in the dividend payout. IMHO

Market Report: Go-Ahead moves into fast lane for takeover gossips Despite high hopes at the start of the year, takeover activity in the Square Mile ended up being rather subdued during 2011. However, punters praying the next 12 months may prove to be different will have been cheered yesterday by the revival of takeover talk around a number of stocks. One of them was Go-Ahead, the transport group which has been frequently suggested as a possible target. Vague rumours of a potential approach were doing the rounds last November, and yesterday it was back in the spotlight thanks to Liberum Capital. Analysts from the broker said the company could be "a prime candidate" for a move from a European peer. Speculation that a bid for one of the UK bus and rail groups could emerge from the continent has been high ever since Germany's Deutsche Bahn paid £1.59bn for Arriva in 2010.

I think consolidation in the industry will hot up next year and the year after.GOG has always been a target and if the price is right the management may say YES !!! For me the offer would have to be in the region of £19+ a share

Be great for whoever gets it as revenues are over £1bn a year - and I can assure you there are lots of groups, both in UK and abroad that are looking at this franchise with interest ... there will be serious competition just to get short-listed for this one. Only worry is that competition is going to be so hot ... margins will be significantly eroded.

Looks like a fab opportunity for GOG to grab Thameslink routes with options to extend the franchise after 7yrs.In effect a name change to cover all the routes.

Bad news that the DfT have announced the Southern franchise will disappear at the end of the current contract, with it being absorbed by the Thameslink franchise.

DAILY TELEGRAPH 7:00AM GMT 16 Dec 2011 Go-Ahead Group £13.69 +64p Questor says BUY Go-Ahead said that trading had been "robust" and it now expects operating profits for the full year to June to be slightly ahead of its previous expectations. The boost is primarily because of its rail division. An important thing to note here is that we are not yet halfway through the year, so the company's new chief executive, David Brown, must be pretty confident this will be achieved. All three of Go-Ahead's rail franchises are showing a strong performance. In particular, the group's smallest franchise, London Midland, is achieving double-digit growth in both passenger revenue and volumes. The first rail franchise that will come up for re-tendering is East Anglia in 2014. The other operations are the Southern franchise, which includes the Gatwick Express, and Southeastern. Go-Ahead's bus operations are run through a 65pc-owned subsidiary called Govia. The rest is owned by French group Keolis. The bus operations outside London have remained "resilient", with half-year revenues growth expected to be at about 3.5pc. In London, mileage increased during the period as expected, due to new contracts beginning in the second quarter. Mileage growth of about 2pc is expected for the first half. Fuel costs remain fully hedged for this year at 41p a litre, in line with last year. The group is now about 70pc hedged for next year at an average of 49p a litre. The main reason to own the shares is for income, as they are yielding a prospective 6pc. Go-Ahead's recent trading update saw management reassure on the payment, saying: "Our cash flow and balance sheet remain strong, underpinning our dividend policy, providing support in the event of a downturn in the economy and allowing flexibility to pursue further value-adding opportunities." The shares were first tipped at £12.15 on June 11 last year and are now 13pc ahead compared with the FTSE 100, down 6pc. Buy for the income.

Good day, trt! Bought £10k worth at 1350 for granny's ISA earlier in the year. With the excellent divi we're back in profit now, after a pretty scary dip. Quality always comes to the top in the end. Wonder what I should buy for her 2012 ISA?????????? edit: I bought some more with the dividend at 1226, so it only gets better!

PRE-CLOSE TRADING UPDATE Robust trading in bus and rail; operating profit slightly ahead of Board expectations Go-Ahead today announces its pre-close trading update for the six months ending 31 December 2011, ahead of its half year results which will be released on 23 February 2012. Overall: Trading in the period has been robust and we now expect the Group to deliver operating profit slightly ahead of our previous expectations, primarily in the rail division, for the full year to 30 June 2012. David Brown, Group Chief Executive of Go-Ahead, said: "While we remain suitably cautious about the medium term wider economic outlook, trading in both our bus and rail divisions continues to be strong, with record numbers of passengers using our services. This demonstrates the resilience of public transport during challenging economic times as passengers seek convenient and value-for-money alternatives to the private car. "Our bus operations both in and outside London are performing well. Our sector-leading London business has seen growth due to new contracts commencing in the period, and our regional operations continue to make progress through initiatives such as smartcard technology. "All three of our rail franchises are showing a strong performance. In particular our smallest franchise, London Midland, is achieving double digit growth in both passenger revenue and volumes". Bus: Our operations outside London have remained resilient in the period and are expected to achieve revenue growth (excluding acquisitions) of around 3.5% for the first half of the financial year. Passenger numbers (excluding acquisitions) have risen about 3% in the second quarter, helped, in part, by the continued rollout of smartcards. The increase in smartcard users has reduced the average yield per customer as passengers have taken advantage of the good value offered by period passes. Total deregulated revenue (including the acquisition of Thames Travel) is expected to grow by over 5% in the first half of the financial year. In London, mileage increased during the period as expected, due to new contracts beginning in the second quarter. Mileage growth of around 2% is expected for the first half. We expect a similar increase in revenue, despite lower QIC bonus payments compared to the first half of the last financial year. Fuel costs remain fully hedged for this year at 41 pence per litre (ppl), in line with last year. We are now around 70% hedged for 2012/13 at an average of 49ppl. Rail: Our rail division operates the Southern (including Gatwick Express), Southeastern (including High Speed) and London Midland franchises through our 65% owned subsidiary Govia. All three franchises are performing well. We expect Southern's passenger revenue to increase by over 9% in the first half, and passenger journeys by around 3%. Southeastern is expected to see similar growth in passenger journeys, with revenue rising by around 9%. London Midland has been the outstanding performer, with passenger revenue up around 13% and passenger numbers by 10%. Other items: Cash management remains strong, with net debt expected to be around GBP60m at the half year, slightly lower than at the end of the last financial year. Net debt to EBITDA is also expected to remain comfortably within our target range of 1.5 to 2.5 times. Capital expenditure should be in line with expectations at around GBP35m for the first half and approximately GBP80m for the full year. Outlook: Although we remain cautious about the wider economic outlook, we continue to see robust performance across both divisions, leading us to expect Group operating profit for the full year to 30 June 2012 slightly ahead of our previous view. Our cashflow and balance sheet remain strong, underpinning our dividend policy, providing support in the event of a downturn in the economy and allowing flexibility to pursue further value-adding opportunities.
