You know John, you could always try engaging in informed debate about facts, detail, nuance, complexity. Just a wild thought.

Bore off boring. Kie is 102% up YTD. Instead of boring us from 50p up with useless posts belittling Kier you should have pulled the trigger and +. Your boring portfolio would of got less boring. I still genuinely believe there is an opportunity to double your money at these levels too in the next 24 months - Kier could well be a takeover target. Anyone sensible enough to take up the up the extra shares are very well positioned now.

I don't disagree - there is more to it than just numbers. And COST management has been appalling. Most if it now gone, but I do think the current CEO is a lot less than impressive and is part of the old management failures - albeit a relatively junior part at the time. It's just that a PE bidder would be looking at the price they would be paying for a cashflow stream - and would be very happy to get rid of the management if they wanted to. To be honest, they're both cheap.

Yes, but cheaper doesn't mean better. Costain is still operated by the management that got it into so much trouble recently, and it has an identity crisis and is trying to turn away from construction, plus it's not a market leader, whereas Kier is. Also you like it. 😊

I know a cheaper one... Whatever the rights and wrongs of the share price, these are the facts. Similar PE ratios (although COST lower), very different Enterprise Value to Earnings per Share (or EBITDA if you prefer) ratios - which is what a PE bidder would be looking at: ................................KIE....................COST Number of shares................446.....................275 Share price....................1.30...................0.611 Market Cap .....................579.....................168 Financial Debt at 31.12.20......436 Delayed Tax......................50 Trade Finance...................110 Cash raised....................(229) KL sale.......................

Something's going on, right Pete? Someone stake-building? The ownership profile shown on the FT's page for Kier has changed significantly. Standard Life appear to have divested. If the chart is correct, institutional ownership is now less than half, when previously it had been almost three quarters. UK companies are increasingly bid-targets for foreign money, especially firms plugged into govt money and infrastructure -- see rumours about SSE recently, and the buy-outs of defence firms. Of all the construction firms, Kier's low valuation and high market-share surely has to make it one of the best takeover-prospects. https://markets.ft.com/data/equities/tearsheet/profile?s=KIE:LSE

Monthly construction output fell by 1.3% in June 2021, because of a decline in repair and maintenance (4.2%) offset by a small increase in new work (0.5%). Construction output in June 2021 was 0.3% (£39 million) below the February 2020 pre-coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic level; new work was 2.1% (£188 million) below this level, while repair and maintenance was 3.1% (£149 million) above. In contrast to the monthly fall, quarterly construction output grew by 3.3% in Quarter 2 (Apr to June) 2021 compared with Quarter 1 (Jan to Mar) 2021; both new work (3.9%) and repair and maintenance (2.3%) saw increases.

It looked a short @ £13 ditto @ £1.30 eriktherock - 16 Jan 2018 - 21:51:33 - 783 of 22788 Kier Group 2005 - The Building Business - KIE Given that Kier will cherry-pick Government sponsored framework projects. It's hard to believe that the share price is not past 1300. It will be by the end of the week of course. eriktherock - 23 Jul 2018 - 13:04:04 - 917 of 22788 Kier Group 2005 - The Building Business - KIE I've decided to scale in short @ 940p. We shouldn't need 'vision 2020' to see where this is heading. 921p > 732p > 418p

Only when I put my wallet in my front pocket. You have been de-ramping from 50p you idiot. What an analyst you would make and a boring one at that!

Each to their own LOL what are you doing on here and not invested! you certainly were attempting to de-ramp this stock in its hour of need along with the usual suspects. You are an idiot. As for the spelling mistakes there will be many more. Uneducated 15 year old school leaver makes lots of money trading. Unfortunately the doors have closed for my type in modern day Britain probably to your approval. All you need to know is I was right. I generally am. I am successful (probably spelt incorrectly) and I don't clear the rooms at parties (I host many). I do understand the fundamentals of trading and know a good opportunity when I see one Drawn to Kier not at a tenner, a fiver, even two quid but sub 1 pound. Note the user name, I foolishly got hooked on these boards as my position grew and have witnessed you, Wally and Zico troll this share. It is an utter disgrace and I just feel sorry for any investors who got shook out from all of your lies. You are pathetic.

Tempsford Hsll was put up for sale 2019 - have they sold it or the rail upgrade, from Cambridge to Oxford, means potentially higher prices?

John - I didn't. Stdy, bless him, had it right (eventually) in terms of what I wrote (or should that be 'rought' in line with your spelling?) here and my motivations. And bear in mind the CEO himself has basically just confirmed in the FT interview what I was saying back at the start about Government not wanting it to go under. And compare what I said might happen to what did happen. https://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=8067302&from=14998 Sometimes risks come off - this did. And well done. Pity about sparty not doing, but not surprising. Many more high risk punts don't, and I didn't want to risk it. Quite happy with the gains I made and am still making on COST which was much safer. Each to their own.

Bore off swine. Stick to what you do best at. Clearing rooms at parties. You have attempted and failed to de-ramp Kier from 50p. 130 trades and we are now over 100% up YTD. Yes that’s write 100%. What an incredible achievement and whilst never in any doubt for those with a bit about them it is fair to say that everything you, Wally and Zico gave said has been incorrect. The slow and steady move up has only just started. Well done longs.

Again - you don't read, and I don't blame you for not reading what you yourself write, but you yourself wrote, in your last line "the likes of ammu,podgey and co". No comment on your abject failure to make any money here? Or SYME? Don't bother - you have nowhere to go on it. Goodbye sparty.
