Why such a big drop today? I cannot see any news or broker recs to affect this.

Oh Yes! GoG on a 5 year high! Thanks for the chart Enami - what do the charts tell us now? Fundamentally, I think the market believes management's prediction of £100m bus profits and are beginning to attribute some value to the rail business?

Go-Ahead swallows £86m jump in franchise payments By Ceri Jones | Thu, 5th September 2013 - 10:43 Transport operator Go-Ahead Group (GOG) has announced a pre-tax profit of £86.2 million for the year, an 8% fall caused by a massive rise in rail franchise payments to the government, but this was better than both management and analysts predicted. Record passenger levels across both bus and rail divisions helped drive a 6% increase in revenues to £2.57 billion, but profit at the rail unit, which operates the Southern, Southeastern and London Midland rail franchises, fell by £15.7 million as the franchise payments ballooned to £85.9 million. The Olympic Games last year were a high spot for the company's rail operations, with Southeastern alone transporting one in 10 of all spectators, and up to 25,000 people an hour travelling to and from the Olympic stadium on its High Speed Javelin trains, which produced the longer-lasting bonus of 27,000 new customers signing up to its database. There was encouraging progress towards the management's bus operating profit target of £100 million by 2015/16. The bus division posted a record operating profit of £78.2 million in the year, up 11.4%, and ahead of management expectations by around £8 million. Initial projections for operating profit in this first year of the bus unit's Target 100 strategic plan will be in line with the previous year, at around £70 million, followed by steady growth through subsequent years after cost headwinds of around £20 million due to a reduction in the Bus Service Operators Grant and increased fuel costs. The company has spent £45.3 million on 251 new buses in the year, but made £1 million in cost savings. Over 400,000 smart cards are now in issue and mobile-ticketing generated over £1 million of revenue in less than 12 months. Go Ahead has been shortlisted for the Thameslink and Crossrail franchises, but no mention was made in the results of the company's last-minute withdrawal from the DLR bid following the disintegration of its relationship with former partner Colas Rail. Go-Ahead and Colas Rail, part of the French conglomerate Bouygues, were named on a shortlist of four bidders by Transport for London in April. The company maintained its full-year dividend at 81p. ;-)) ;-)) :-)) ;-)) Investors liked Thursday's news and sent the shares up 51p to 1,526p in early trading. This compares with a 1,500p target price from analysts at Panmure Gordon

Bought in today on the pull back, taking position for the results early September. If we break out of £16 resistance, the 5-year old chart will look fantastic, pointing to £20 as the next target.

Thanks for the posts, Bunnji. Any of the old GOG followers still around? Surely a rise of 120p over the past week warrants some sort of comment!

Four train operators have been shortlisted by Transport for London to run the Crossrail services that will start in 2015. The bidders will be National Express, Keolis/Go-Ahead, Arriva and MTR. All four currently run trains in or around London, with German-owned Arriva and MTR, the Hong Kong Metro operator, running the Overground service as a joint venture. The announcement is another blow for FirstGroup, which recently failed to pre-qualify for the Docklands Light Railway franchise in the capital, and is still in talks over its Great Western rail extension in the wake of the 2012 west coast main line fiasco. LR RATP, the Parisian tube and RER operator, also failed to make the cut. An invitation to tender is due to be issued in September, and an operator will be appointed at the end of 2014. The winner will start running the first services from May 2015 between Liverpool Street and Shenfield, with the central route under the capital opening in late 2018. Howard Smith, Crossrail's director of operations, said they were a step closer to cutting journey times across London. The £14.8bn project promises to increase rail capacity in the capital by 10% with a fast, frequent service linking the east and west.

Go-Ahead Group plc : Go-Ahead and Keolis partnership shortlisted to bid for Crossrail 06/25/2013| 08:22am US/Eastern 25 June 2013 A joint venture between Go-Ahead and Keolis has been shortlisted to bid for Transport for London's Crossrail franchise, the first new major UK railway in a century. The partners currently operate three rail franchises together - Southern, Southeastern and London Midland - through Govia. David Brown, Group Chief Executive of Go-Ahead said: "We are very pleased to be on the Crossrail shortlist and look forward to working with Keolis on a compelling bid. Over the coming months we will draw on our combined experience of operating high density rail networks both in the UK and abroad, and aim to demonstrate that we can meet Transport for London's ambitions for delivering a world class service to passengers." Transport for London is expected to announce the winning bidder by the end of 2014 with the contract expected to start in May 2015.

52 week high, if I'm not mistaken and only a day away from the dividend payment. Good performance, I reckon.

Delivering on Brown review recommendations, the new programme will provide a more sustainable schedule for rail franchising by delivering no more than 3 to 4 competitions per year, and staggering the 2 principal Intercity franchises, West Coast and East Coast, so they will not be let at the same point in the economic cycle. In order to roll out the programme and stagger future competitions, it will be necessary to exercise a number of contractual extensions with current operators and to negotiate a series of direct awards with current operators. During these discussions the department will look to negotiate further passenger benefits, which will ensure the best deal for tax payers. As a result, I will later today be serving notice on First Capital Connect and Southeastern to call 7 period extensions available in their contracts. The new franchise programme is set out below. In my statement of 31 January I announced that the Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern would be a management style contract due to the level of investment and change on the route. For Great Western, our plan is to put to market a competed management contract in 2016. We will further develop this proposition in the light of experience with the Thameslink competition, which has similar infrastructure challenges, and will give consideration to the capacity in the market closer to the date.

Agree, Blueball. Dividend growth has stalled over the past few years.
