wallywoo: Lol, it is tempting to think that a share that has been much higher in the past could reach those levels in the future.However, in Kier's case since they have issued 459 percent more shares in 2.5 years, it's important to see that 240p is the highest share price in today's terms that Kier has ever achieved (because £1.1B is their highest ever market cap).So all this talk of 300p + is completely out of the question. Especially when you realise that the company is in much worse shape now (with a long history of losing cash and massive negative net tangible assets).Stdy's forecasts are completely fictitious and unrealistic. A 80p share price is much more likely in the near term.
stdyeddy: This BB is crawling with you wollywoo. Not short and not long. What are you doing here? The longs here have been making money for eight months. You are a such a berk. It's you who has got all of your 'expert' predictions wrong and you've had to confess to lying to everyone here for months (possibly years) about your 'short' position which you kept adding to from 50p in October until you were totally embarrassed when the share price hit 120p. You'll still be here lying your pants off when the share price hits £3. A ridiculous obsession you've got, and considering your age, probably some kind of mental health condition. Kier has very little debt now, compared to almost every other business on the stock market, some of them with billions in debt such as large retail, airlines, oil cos, almost every sector. Kier is a market leader with 'permission' to grow its margins because the sector does not want another failure. Kier now has plenty of cash and a responsible management team. Mid-July for the full year trading results. People who've sold 110/120 will kick themselves when they see this at 300p. There is no way that this will not hit £2 now by mid-July. After that it'll be an automatic entry to rejoin the FTSE250. Index followers will pile in towards the end of August. All of the index funds will be compelled to buy Kier in early September and the share price will fly to £3 if it isn't already there, and well beyond if it is. You wolly and you zicko, prattling on with your lies and sh1t-talking are the biggest couple of clowns on this board. A couple of stupid old men who have the weirdest way of passing the time -- spewing rubbish onto this board. Karma will see the pair of you reap what you sow. Meanwhile a hard core of Kier investors are going to ride this wave to January and maybe beyond. Hamham put it well a few weeks back -- opportunities like this come round maybe once every 7-10 years. We are invested in the sector's market leader, with almost no debt, a huge order book and a government sponsored economic revival for levelling up the UK. The forward p/e for Kier is about 3. Just 3. For a business forecast to make £140m to £157m annually and committed to paying out a third of it in dividends. No other construction firm will be able to touch this share price for profit over the next year.
stdyeddy: More rubbish from the one-month-old newbie. The shorters are not hiding out of sight; they are nowhere in sight because no sensible hedge fund would short Kier now -- the share price is in recovery. Two years ago this was the most shorted share on the stock exchange; hedgies weren't shy then, and they wouldn't be now. The share price has increased 300% since November and now that the business is recapitalised, likely to treble in price on a load of outcomes, including decent second half results. A forward p/e of 10 is the next easily achievable target imv; over £3. Entry to the FTSE 250 will also create a lot of momentum here and we are about to start the run-up to that. Later today we are likely to learn how much of the new share issue became available in the 'excess application'. If this is a very small amount, there will be a lot of existing Kier shareholders with money on the sidelines thinking about buying Kier while it is still in the low £1. There are already a load of investors who are not invested in Kier and who have seen its well publicised recapitalisation and recovery -- they will also buy in once the new shares begin trading. Any dip is a buying opportunity for a great many people now.
stdyeddy: errr... wolly, you surely must've noticed that Kier has trebled since November. A 300% increase in seven months. You are the one who is clueless, constantly saying that black is white. Your predictions have proven to be completely wrong here for seven months. You should really give up trying to be an 'expert'. Anyone can see that you're actually just an attention seeking nutjob. Btw, I don't give people 'tips'. That's everyone else's job. 😊 The worst thing about you though wolly, is that your motives are dishonest. Constantly lying about your positions, gulling people into giving up their shares while saying how certain you are that Kier won't go over £1 and that you'll apologise to everyone if it does, and then reneging on that very public promise. And constantly calling all the investors on here 'paid rampers' to try and justify your dishonesty. You lie so frequently and so glibly that no one here believes anything you say. As for finding 'one problem with your points', you have been contradicted, corrected and proven wrong a million times on here but you just ignore our points and constantly repeat your mantra of 'kier is doomed'. Everyone here presents 'points' that are positive and negative for Kier, but you only misrepresent and lie. That's why I and others confront you and call you a liar. You're not being attacked. We are merely upholding the truth. And btw, the regulars here all agreed in 2019 that it would take Kier two years to drag itself out of the hole. We have been patient, and Kier's time has come. The next seven months are likely to see big increases in the Kier share price, especially after year-end and January/February's H1 reporting when the market re-rates Kier's prospects. You conveniently forget that Kier's share price was around 1200p about 2.5 years back. It won't go that high with more shares in issue but £3-£4 is within reach in my view.
stdyeddy: No wolly, you've been saying that shareholders would be wiped out. Instead the shares have gone up in value and are currently up around 50% from the price before the equity raise was launched recently -- the share price has been rebased by approximately 20p when the shares went 'ex-entitlement' on the 14th of this month. And on a forward p/e basis (just 3.5 years' low-end forecast earnings of £140m) they are STILL very cheap. The first half results show the results of Davies's two-years of restructuring and writedowns. The business has turned the corner and it has taken Davies and his team two years to reposition the business after the disastrous Haydn Mursell years. The shareprice fell from a high of 1200p just three years ago. Now that the business is properly recapitalised, the share price will go up fast. We are in a period of frequent newsflow from Kier. The next news will follow the shareholders' meeting on the 18th of June; full approval for the cash-raise and KL sale, then the completion of both of those actions; then the full-year trading update, probably in mid-July, and then the publication of the accounts in September. This will be a big year for Kier shares. The longs here have been patient. The trolls like you have been proven completely wrong. You've wasted your time here for two years and you continue to make a fool of yourself here everyday.
stdyeddy: You have lost the argument wolly. The final planks for the recovery have now been put into place. All of the factors which you said meant the end for Kier have fallen away; the shorts have all closed -- there are no reportable shorts against Kier; two years ago it was the most shorted share on the LSE. Debt has been conquered -- £330m in cash going onto the balance sheet. Turnover has been maintained. Kier continues to win big contracts. Costs have been cut. Underlying profitability is increasing and is projected to be 3.5% for next year. The directors have increased their own PERSONAL shareholdings in Kier; Lester, Davies and Kesterton are EACH increasing their holdings by £75k and others are taking a smaller stake. The shareprice is doing the talking -- you predicted the share price would crash on the launch of the cash-raise; instead it did the opposite and went up. The market is getting reacquainted with Kier. You, meanwhile, are as deluded and malicious as ever. Btw, where is this 'apology' that you were going to give everyone if the shareprice went past £1? Are you reneging on that too? You seem to be avoiding the question. That won't make it go away.
wallywoo: On the 23rd October 20 (approximately 3 months after the equity issue), Costain's share price was 38.3p. So as I said it fell back 21.7p from the equity issue price (36.6 percent 21.7 /60 X 100). If the same happened here the share price would be 85 X 63.4/100= 53.89p. This is the likely Kier share price around October 21. Please get your facts right, Stdy. We all know how you like to manipulate the truth!!! But you are right about the issue being larger, it is more similar to Kier than I thought, Costain issue was for 166.7m shares when there were 108m (154 percent). So this is still smaller but quite similar. A very good example of what to expect. Thanks for that.!!
stdyeddy: So wolly, now that you've spewed your little fiction onto this thread, you're offering to 'shut up' if no one will contradict you? Well, I've just checked the share price action for Costain during cash-raise from 6th May 2020, the day before the launch, to mid-June 2020 two weeks after all the new shares began trading (masturpig might be an interesting source here since he participated -- I can't believe I've typed those words!!) and as usual, you're telling nothing but lies!!! Practically everything you've written there is false -- once again you are merely hoping that no one will check. Costain issued 153% more shares, NOT 35%! The rest from you is also rubbish. Closing prices 6th May, 70p (day before the cash-raise is launched) 7th May, 75p (day cash-raise is launched) NOT 80p as you claim wolly The price then ROSE to 82p on the ex-entitlement day And post ex-entitlement when the share price will have rebased to take account of the open offer 'rights' (bear in mind that shareholders were diluted more than Kier shareholders at this point, at almost 50% -- masturpig? Is that right -- am surprised it's so much) found a new price of 75p, and dropped only 10% by close on 14th May to 68p. And also keep in mind that this was during the Covid crisis. The new shares started trading on 29th May and the data I'm looking at shows the shareprice DROPPING JUST 4P BEFORE RISING TO 90p by the 8th June. THE TRUTH IS THE ACTUAL OPPOSITE OF THE STORY THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO MISLEAD PEOPLE WITH WOLLY!!! YOU HAVE BEEN FOUND OUT ONCE AGAIN, MERELY BY CHECKING THE ACTUAL FACTS!!!! Since then Costain shares have underperformed Kier, as we have taken great pleasure in pointing out to masturpig at various times, but I would say that Costain's share price performance after June is more obviously a feature of the market and it still has not got anywhere near the lows you're describing.
wallywoo: Just here to annoy you, Stdy. Of course you won't say if, when and what price you own Kier shares. That's because you are a paid ramper. Who for 2 years has been saying Kier will make you rich, when the share price has fallen and needs more money. Why do you keep being so wrong?? I consider it my civic duty to point out and annoy scammers (and the man who has said 100's of times Kier have no debt problems and have plenty of cash). Kier has lost £200m a year cash for the last 2. They needed a equity issue or they would be bust. It's the largest I have seen for a fair few years at 175 percent of current equity. There's no guarantee they can generate any cash after it and I expect H2 will be very disappointing. Peter, a open offer is not a rights issue. Therefore, shareholders cannot sell that right. That's why the share price will hold up until June and tank when they start trading. 80's by July if not before.
gixxer1: Wally. Whilst I have been in the kie Sharesave Scheme since 2010, you are only in it for a period of 3 years at a time and then you can join the subsequent one at the new share Option Price. Whatever they give you as the Option Price at the start of the 3 years (say 85p) is the price you can buy the shares for at the 3 year point, or withdraw your money without losing. Lets say the Option Price originally offered is 85p and over a 3 year period I save £5000 into it. 5000 divided by 85p (the Option price) is 5882, which means I have 5882 shares at the end of the 3 years. I can then buy 5882 shares at whatever the current share price is. So at todays price of say 111, I have made £1529. If the share price is lower, then I just withdraw my £5k. Not much I know and it will never make you a millionaire, but it is something. And yes I did lose out on the last RI of 409, but on the basis of 'if you are not prepared to lose it, then don't do it', I am ok with that. BTW, I am still a contented kie employee!
