Carillion could also try to woo rivals Balfour Beatty and Kier, who compete with Carillion on construction work, to launch rescue takeover bids. However, both have ruled out a deal for now. Mike van Dulken, analyst at Accendo Markets suggested that without serious financial intervention, the company could sink without a trace. Sunday Telegraph

Everyone gossips in the construction industry. The Mersey Gateway scheme is in particularly poor state with very significant losses being incurred by Kier. Are these losses being reported is a question which is worth asking. Add to that the disaster which was the May Gurney purchase and what we have here is a house of cards. Almost every contract on May Gurney was a disaster with extremely heavy losses on rail and highways. Kier bought a pup.

Nice find there phil.It does look a good fit.No RNS yet though. Good to see there is not much short interest here in the wake of CLLN.A good recent update but i guess this will tread water until the results.

Kier is losing very heavily on rail jobs. The Mersey gateway scheme is a disaster, could be as much as £70m loss. Highways schemes all in difficulty. Virtually every job in infrastructure is cash negative. I wonder what they are telling the market about these schemes.

Yes, the relatively small reaction to Carillion's woes says the market thinks Kier is clean. That was helped by Kier's taking exceptional costs on contracts and listing them in its pre-close statement of 28 June. Fwiw, I think Kier will be ok. Pension deficit is much smaller than Carillion's. Borrowings are less than Carillion's. No new losses from contracts, unlike Carillion. Notwithstanding all that, I sold out today. Reason? Having been lucky and bought during the recent dip, I was at a small profit - so could exit pain-free. I think that poor sentiment from the Carillion affair may dog Kier and others for a while. Business confidence is being shaken by the Brexit uncertainty. There may be good opportunities ahead for this cash, if the market weakens further. Good luck to holders. :-)

Problem contracts seem to go with the territory. Tendering is too competitive and a 3% operating margin leaves no margin for error. Could have been knocked hard by Carillion profit warning which also operates on a 3% margin. Clearly the Market thinks Kier is different.

Also, UK is to spend £1.3 billion more on road improvements. (Old news - 2016 Autumn Statement) https://www.constructionnews.co.uk/markets/sectors/roads/autumn-statement-government-to-spend-13bn-on-roads/10014963.article Kier should pick up some of this, as it has significant road capability. If Kier can avoid any new exceptionals/problem contracts, the medium term could be good. Broker targets of 1500/1600p attainable?

Numis upgrades ‘transformed’ Kier Group Numis has upgraded Kier Group (KIE) after a transformative period that should pave the way for organic growth at the property company. Analyst Howard Seymour upgraded his recommendation from ‘add’ to ‘buy’, with a target price of £15.10 on the stock. The change was made in light of Kier’s full-year update, which provided a positive picture across all divisions. At the time of writing, the stock was trading up 3%, or 37p, at £12.55. ‘After what has been a transformational period of acquisitions and portfolio simplification which is now in place, we see management comments as signalling that we should look to a period of sustained organic growth across the group as benefits of strong market positions and good net investment in property and residential bear fruit,’ he said.

Gone blue. +15p, while FTSE100 is minus 37 points. Slow start but now moving as I'd expected. I see three broker recommendations today, viz: Liberum and Peel Hunt both retain 'buy'. Numis upgrades to 'buy'. Happy holder.

Year end trading update has been released today. It reads well. They have set out the non-underlying items since 30 June 2015. Next year they show zero non-underlying impact on the P&L and minus £12million cash impact. I like this apparent end to non-underlyings. We will see what the real business does. Importantly, the dividend looks safe. Yield is about 5.5% at 1220p. The market continues its hunt for reliable income. 8:04am muted market reaction, minus 4p. I'd expected some positive move.

Yes, it looks like there has been agreement with the DUP. Announcement very rightly delayed out of respect for those affected by the London fire. The Maybot's days as PM are numbered, imo. No warmth, no heart behind the words, lacking common sense. Two ways I can see it going, (1) The Conservatives announce a leadership contest once the House rises (20th July), getting a new one in place over the Summer. or (2) They leave Maybot to have her name forever associated with the final Brexit deal that goes before Parliament - there is certain to be lots of dissatisfaction. After that, the Conservatives have their leadership contest. Impact on stock market? Internationals much less affected (Good move by yourself, imo). Domestically oriented stocks more affected, ie. higher volatility, but can't say which would do well, atm. Kier? Yes, it's picking up. If there's no further political twist and the update on 28th June is to expectations, I'd expect Kier to rise further. It can afford its dividend and its end markets are firm enough. The stockmarket continues to seek reliable income.
