sphere25: Disappointing move. Breaks out and hits 230p and then comes flying back down like this to the current price of 213p, almost typical IBST really - lumpy irrational moves. At times it isn't almost worth trying to look at value proper companies in this sort of market. You may as well have a full list of speculative garbage shares on the monitor. You'd do alot better! :-D Whacky ole market full of uncomfortable excesses! We are now in reporting season so it will be interesting to see how the market reacts to the results. Roll on the 10th March. All imo DYOR
sphere25: Looks like a slow motion breakout with a gradual uptrend in play on the shorter daily charts. That is one way to play the shorts. Let them feed in and gradually gobble up any shorts being fed in and then keep bidding higher in a very small way. If that bull trend can be kept in tact, price could move well from here. Over to Merian and any other small shorters under the 0.5% threshold to make their move now because the price is clearly making bullish moves. All imo DYOR
jonojubb: More price teasing, slowly getting there but did well holding up yesterday, I thought
sphere25: No problem Jonojubb. I post across various shares when there is something notable happening. The movements here have been interesting. Prices are fluid and you can never be sure from day to day how market participants will behave. Sometimes you can have a strong move one day and the next it's a different picture. I mean, take IBST.... You ask for a close above 220p and it goes and closes at 219.8p! You can't make this stuff up at times ha Talk about a proper price tease. I guess it is a form of a bullish move even though an unconvincing one. Hang in there and hopefully we can move to a nice breakout. There is no movement on the shorting front by Merrian on the disclosures just out now. That's all for now. All imo DYOR
sphere25: We know Merian have been sat at the resistance levels feeding shorts in. Hard to say who else might be feeding in there under the 0.5% disclosable threshold. It would be hard to believe there will be significant short interest in IBST. unlike topical examples out there recently, but it seems quite a challenge to buy through any shorts and the sellers at the resistance levels atm. Price is once more bang on that breakout point and having a go but it falls over every time. It goes back down a few pence and then comes back up to have another go. Peculiar movements in such a bullish market. I'd have expected IBST to have broken out by now. It is an enormous price tease! Furthermore, there was a 1.16m buy at 217.8p yesterday at 15:00. That is a significant chunk to take on a single trade for IBST and yet that wall of resistance is still being a challenge. I think we need a firm close above 220p here to signal a breakout. Once you have shorts at play, it does become a great deal trickier to read the price movements. All imo DYOR
sphere25: Key resistance test coming up again. Later realised, that on the day of the bullish update, there were shorts being fed into the market to help prevent the breakout. Merian have been feeding shorts in so that will have had an influence on those algos selling around the resistance. Whether it was the critical factor is open to debate. A tad miffed at feeding shorts in here. Out of all the shares and all kinds of lofty valuations, pick the one that isn't on an excessive rating (imo) and carries bullish recovery potential? Huh!!?! It looks like they have been feeding shorts in quite a few recently so perhaps it was a hedge against the US correcting or maybe they think the top of the market is close and to continue averaging into shorts? I don't know, odd move in something like IBST when so many others like TRN are on the table for shorts. We are told that more than 90% of funds fall down when it comes to beating a basic benchmark. Wonder if they will keep feeding more in here and across the board. All imo DYOR
jonojubb: Im about breakeven at this point as cashflow didnt let me get in sooner but wandering when is a good price to load up again
sphere25: Failed breakout and back into a range it is then. A few of these about now with sellers coming in at recent highs preventing a push higher. Suspect prices will eventually move higher post some random shorter term moves and hopefully a wider market correction in Q1 so we can load up :-) Clearly IBST need another upgrade to convince the market - suspect that will follow. It will be hard to not crack that recent high then! Let's see how it goes. All imo DYOR
yump: I'm not buying yet. 50mln EBITDA is less than half the previous year. That's before any exceptionals and the share price is 2/3 of what it was. Depends how long it will take to get back to normality and that's an unknown at present going into this year.
edmundshaw: The gap in price between FORT and Ibstock seems to have got rather wide. Is there any reason why Ibstock should not have the same benefits from a housebuilding boom as Forterra? Anyway, the gap has widened from 16% to 31% on no news... strange... I suppose it might have been instigated by the buybacks for the FORT pension fund, but that would only happen due to some fairly unfocused investors... In fact, even stranger, in December the gap NARROWED to only around 7%.
