stutes you are clearly desperate for something negative to say. likelihood of kier 'tapping the market' is approximately zero. kier has been growing net cash and might have about £80m by now. maybe more. we'll probably know in the trading update in a july. no need to raise cash. the businesses is paying a dividend now. completely different cash situation.

also you don't understand the history with kier. davies took the the helm and had to deal with the fallout from three big takeovers that kier made in recent years. he won't want to repeat that. big shareholders most likely wouldn't even agree to it. if kier buys any business, it'll be a small thing like the buckingham rail division that cost £9m, paid for in cash and will probably pay for itself in a yr.

more likely scenario for takeovers is a foreign investor making a bid for kier. a czech bloke is about to take over royal mail. uk assets are seen as cheap and great value and that's definitely true of kier - uk gov biggest contract winner. fwd p/e of about 5. dirt cheap. shares would double or more on an approach.

Investor visit a great success by the look of the share price movement

According to some investment sites (Morning Star and others) our favourite construction firm announced during the investor site visit today that it's won another prison design and build contract -- HMP Bullingdon.

This project was discussed in the press a couple of years ago as an expansion to the existing prison with spaces for about 250 inmates. That would make it about one sixth the size of the new Five Wells prison (described a while back as a £253m contract). My guess is that the Bullingdon project probably has a value of somewhere around £50m assuming a little for inflation and also assuming that the project is the same in scope as it was back in 2022.

I imagine there'll be some more reporting on this shortly, but if everything is as I've described, it looks like another substantial addition to Kier's project pipeline.

Again, pointless doom-mongering from you with no facts. As I said before, you're not an investor here long or short. in the time it's taken you to come up with another silly post, the shareprice has gone up 10% as I predicted it would.

More positive news flow on the horizon. balfour's good results today are a hint about kier's likely rsults at yr end. We will have a trading update in about nine weeks and I expect a steady rise to mid-150s or better before that and a likely big rise on the update. All analysts have kier down as buy. targets are around £2.

You are a fool not to link political and economic issues to the succor failure of the construction sector. If K is fixed let's see working capital funded internally rather than debt or cashflow.

As for your dishonesty assertion it shows in my opinion how ridiculous you are.
Let's wait and see how K is affected by alleged building defects due to extended liability period of up to 30 yrs and if K has good records to succesfully defend. themselves from claims? How good are Mouchel, May Gurney and Nicholson records and did K archive them properly?

Your Trump-like glossing over of my queries shows to me that you are not a serious sector investor.

Enjoy writing your vacuous replies.

stutes, you have been diligently doom-mongering here, telling us that the end is nigh for Kier every week and sometimes daily for a couple of years. Your posts today are no different to what you were saying in January 2023 when the shares were under 60p. In that time Kier's shareprice has more than doubled.

You also showed last year that you were unable to read and understand the annual report.

your posting here seems to be nothing more than attention seeking. you are consistently wrong and completely unbalanced in your posts. you have NO CREDIBILITY. you cannot admit when you're wrong. you don't understand Kier as a business and you are clearly not invested here long or even short.

You refuse to answer this basic question - why are you posting here?

you are basically dishonest about your motives.

advfn is a forum for private INVESTORS, not attention-seeking schoolchildren. get a proper hobby or a girlfriend/boyfriend.

It looks as though the market here is pausing for breath. Galliford and Costain have both posted similarly positive updates recently while retailers are all struggling. I suspect (and hope) that the market will begin to re-evaluate construction -- the facts here will ultimately overcome scepticism. Kier is generating a lot of cash and pretty soon it's going to present undeniably great value.

In the last rights issue prospectus, Davies promised investors that Kier would pay out one third of profits as dividends (or was it 30%?). The business seems to be reliably producing a 3.5% margin or better (judging by the cash generation -- the numbers in March will hopefully confirm) and turnover looks like it will be around £4bn or better. Conversion to cash is expected to be 90% now that 'adjustments' for 'restructuring' are allegedly over, so my back-of-a-fag-packet calculation is that profits could be around £125m and cash at £110m.

If -- and I think this is a moderate-sized 'if' -- but if Davies and Kesterton leap straight into this pay-out program with the half-year divi at say one third of the total, the March announcement could offer £12m for the first half (2.6p?) and maybe £24m for the full-year, making £36m in total. That would be a 6.5% return on today's shareprice. That is significantly better than current interest rates for money in the bank and the share is in a well-established uptrend -- hence my expectation that the share price is going to go a lot higher from here.

But another big drop today , what has investors spooked , after so many on here , sounding the victory trumpet
Posted at 17/11/2023 01:33 by itisonlymoney
here are my questions that you seem incapable of answering.

address these points.
1. youve been posting disparaging remarks about kier since the shares crashed four years ago but the company has recovered. you said it wouldn't. Admit that you're wrong.
2. you don't do actual "research" despite your claims. have you read kiers accounts, read an investor presentation or listened to an investor briefing from kier management? judging from the complete absence of intelligent or relevant comment, it looks to me that the answer is no. admit that you know nothing about kier the company.
3. this site is for investors. obviously you are not a kier investor. if you are short you are losing a ton of money because the shares have more than doubled over the last year. what are you doing here? since you appear to be neither long or short, you are evidently just pontificating here everyday because you are a lonely attention seeker.

stop waffling. admit you're a doom-mongering prat.
