pogue: Have a look at the oil price an notice the recent fall. Look at it today and look at the rise in it and Wood share price. That is not a coincidence this company designs and builds facilities for the oil sector when the oil price is high, or looks like it will stay high, the price rises as it means more contracts will become available and vice versa if you do not realize that is the main driver of this company share price you should not be buying shares in it I suggest.

essentialinvestor: I tend to err on the cautious side, it's cost me over the years tbh as usually underestimate share price upside. Sold HSTN too soon recently.

phil140158: 18th February it is then. Looks like a very p+ share price movement up to the results, with any luck the numbers will be good and we'll be on our way back to 750 - 800.

broshm: any bets as to what will happen to the share price after the buy back/ cancellation ? Will the company be " worth the same value" after cancelling 30% of the shares . There will certainly be a change of cash in hand .

volsung: Wednesday, April 14, 2010 All is well for long term earnings at John Wood group by Fat Prophets With the average price of oil during 2009 60% lower than it was in 2008, it was no great shock that capital expenditure across the oil and gas industry during the year fell by 15%. The situation now is somewhat different. The price of oil has strengthened and confidence is returning to the industry. Good news then for energy focussed support services group John Wood Group (LSE, WG). Looking at Wood's share price performance so far this year it is clear that investors are tuning in to the companies ability to add new contracts and renew existing arrangements. 5 weeks ago the company released full year results which provided plenty of cause for optimism. The group's year on year fall in revenue was just 6% with revenue coming in at US$4.9 billion. Underlying earnings fell by 19% aided by a fall in the EBITA margin from 8.4% in 2008 to 7.3% in 2009. Nevertheless, given the economic backdrop these results were relatively resilient. So what will 2010 look like for John Wood Group? A lot of course depends on oil. In 2010 alone oil demand is set to make up the falls it has experienced in both 2009 and 2008. The International Energy Agency (IEA) has also recently been increasing predictions for demand on the back of emerging market growth showing that the oil price has solid underpinnings. The oil price recently surged past US$87 per barrel– putting the price of the commodity at an 18 month high – and a return to triple digits is gathering momentum. Doubters may say that there is spare capacity at the present time however if the market believes this will rapidly disappear in the future, oil prices may nevertheless still rise. The most pivotal business division for Wood is its Engineering and Production Facilities (E&PF) which provided around two thirds of revenue and underlying earnings last year. Whilst the division's revenue remained stable, earnings fell because of a contraction in margins. This is because the high margin development related activities were cut back by clients as they were less confident pursuing new oil projects would be worthwhile. However, with a buoyant oil price development spending look set to recover helping to boost profits for Wood Group. The other two divisions are Well Support and Gas Turbine Services. Well Support focuses on oil and gas reservoirs in order to enhance production rates and economic recovery - clearly a critical service for clients, the unit had the highest EBITA margin of all the divisions. Gas Turbine Services meanwhile is also poised for long term growth with gas the greenest of the fossil fuels for power generation. Overall, looking at the long term earnings picture for John Wood group, all is well. The group's focus on expanding the group's international reach and broadening the range of services provided will in our view underpin robust share price performance. Whilst management will ramp up the company's positions in the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific, the group is developing capabilities in renewables and CO2 handling as well as further technologies for offshore and US shale. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

addouglas: My humble apologies, I was referring to the statements issued on 22nd April (see below). I think they all seemed to sell at £4.53 and the share price seemed to fall just after there. Almost reminds me back in October 2003 when I bought at £1.60 and I think Semple or Langlands sold at £1.67 for the share price to then fall to £1.20. Thankfully I held back then and bought a few more. But hang on guys if you think this has more to go, I admit I could be wrong? I'm just stating the bleeding obvious. A company with a PE of 35 which is almost twice those of similar companies in its sector. I realise the oil price has been $120 but still, I can't see the company growing that fast. All companies in the sector are struggling to hire people with sufficient experience, knowhow, etc, and therefore this puts a limit on how fast a company can grow now in the sector. 2009 looks like a great year for the oil & gas industry in terms of projects kicking off as this year is comparitively subdued in E & P and general development expenditure. As Warren Buffet says, "Be fearful when others are being greedy, and greedy when others are being fearful". Yes, I made 2 predictions (is that a lot?). This share to fall to the 300p ish mark (bring it more in line with other in the sector wrt its PE ratio in 12 months time, factoring in growth), and the FTSE 100 to fall to around 4500 over the next 2 years. I know the BOE is trying to put on a brave face (spin) with respect to the current credit crunch, but as we have seen historically in the last equity bubble back in August 2000, this will have a couple of years yet to play out. "Cash is King" and you'll probably hear that a lot from various comentators over the next 6 months. (All in my humble, what do I know, opinion, but by all means, do your own research) PS. Good luck with your investments, I'm trying to help people make/keep a profit :) PPS If I'm wrong then I'll buy your house from you at its reduced value in 2 yrs time ;) John Wood Group PLC ("Company") NOTIFICATION OF TRANSACTIONS OF DIRECTORS, PERSONSDISCHARGING MANAGERIAL RESPONSIBILITY OR CONNECTED PERSONSIn accordance with DR 3.1.2R, the Company was informed that on 22 April 2008, the following transactions were made by the persons under-noted, each a Director of the Company:Allister G Langlands * exercised 45,008 share options, being 0.0085% of the issued share capital of the Company, at 3* pence per share, such options having been granted on 2 July 2003 under the John Wood Group PLC (No 1) 2003 Long Term Retention Plan; * SOLD 45,008 shares subsequent to the above noted exercise of share options, being 0.0085% of the issued share capital of the Company, at a sale price of £4.533813 per share, such transaction taking place on the London Stock Exchange; * SOLD 97,598 shares, being 0.0184% of the issued share capital of the Company released to him under the Long Term Incentive Scheme ("LTIS") on 7 April 2008, at a sale price of £4.533813 per share, such transaction taking place on the London Stock Exchange.
