ali47fish: i thought mro is a shre where the gains come from sales of projects - why are pople selling out? and isn/t there an update tomorrow!
kanwar: I expected more from MRO today..
minerve 2: getting AA has always been a play on a pseudo debt for equity swap and in that regard there is no change. If you think the sustainable competitive advantage of the AA isn't damaged sufficiently enough by its debt the opportunity is still there. Kier is a turnaround stock and in that regard there is no change also. They both offer prices below intrinsic value if AA pays down its debt and Kier continues on its path of turnaround. With Rolls Royce its share price also offered price below intrinsic value based on projections of flight numbers going forward and its improvements within including computer simulations of engine improvements and its new range of engines moving away from being loss making at point of sale. I was a computing/electronics/general engineer before being a full-time investor, so I know about these things! ;) Of course COVID has thrown a spanner in the works. With your investments it has ALWAYS been 'be part of the herd'. I bet you don't do any thorough business analysis of the underlying shares, if you do it is not enough. I bet you can't even compute simple DCF analysis. You rely on the Greater Fool Theory which looks marvellous when the herd is in full swing - empowered by QE, serial low interest rates and silly government handouts. Just wait until the magic money tree runs out of steam and then watch your favourite shares look for their intrinsic values. You will not be able to see that originating in a Chinese province, it will just happen. Terry Smith you momentum traders are not. He is unique. You know there is one side of investing that you numpties always seem to completely ignore! That is risk. Return should always be measured by the risks you take. Most of you herd numpties take on more risk than you realise because you have no idea of what the real assets and cashflows should be valued at. You only realise the risks you have taken when it is too late. You never know, you might be one of the lucky ones who never gets to learn the lesson. Some how, I doubt it though. I've seen your type come and go over 30s years of investing. I'm still here and I'm still doing well. Better stop being a prat, pretending to be something you are obviously not, and start learning from the pros.
minerve 2: "The market is up if you’re in the right areas Ammu - SGLP, AMZN for example..." Define 'right area'. To you it just seems the hindsight view of recent momentum. My definition is in shares of value not in shares that rely on "The Greater Fool" theory. IT is very easy to look like a clever investor when you are sat in the herd making money. One day the music will stop, the greater fools will disappear and then you will be left with an asset that is overpriced relative to the forward cashflows it will bring you. The market will come to its senses and the share price will adjust downwards. Some of them in large downward movements. Give you an example. Imperial Brands currently yields 10% dividend. More importantly, the asset is generating 20.83% FCF per share to shareholders. That means if the stock market closed tomorrow - and assuming tobacco sales hold up medium term - shareholders would get back their initial investment with free cash flow in less than five years. Anything over that is forward profit. The tobacco revenue pool is actually expected to grow going forward because of NGP. So I think it is one of the best investments on the FTSE ATM. Do the herd think so? No. They buy into other stocks where forward sales are generally unpredictable but they are the glory boy shares so who cares? Wait for the greater fool right?
gettingrichslow: I’m not sure which part of what’s happened so far with MRO is something anyone should be surprised about? Let’s look back at what happened. The coronavirus story started emerging in mid-January. By mid-February it was the main news headline. It was already pretty obvious at that point that there was a really big problem brewing. Wuhan was in its lockdown, cases were popping up in ski resorts, on cruise ships etc. At this point, the share price was still c.245p!! A week later I was in a pub in London watching the news where every single item was about this virus spreading fast and engulfing Iran and Italy. I sold all my MRO the next day at between 214p and 204p. Everyone I was with that night (all experienced investors) agreed at that point that airlines and anything related would be stuffed and that this virus was clearly becoming a pandemic with disastrous consequences. So I do struggle with anyone saying this was hard to predict??
archy147: What's happened here puzzles me somewhat. I thought most share prices were more than factoring in the negative impact of COVID. MRO release a statement which is broadly postive in the current circumstances. Indeed they even state "All of this currently gives hope for a faster recovery than was sometimes feared would be the case though it is too early to be certain of this". And the result is a 15-20% drop in the sp? It doesn't bode well for what will happen to other companies sps when they release their trading updates. If good(ish) news = a tanking of the sp, what will bad news doo??

meanwhile: getting, I'm ready to give up with you. I will have one last try. An investor buys 100 MRO shares at 240p in 2015. A 12 for 1 rights issue at 95p is announced in 2016 to buy Nortek. His 100 shares rise to £8 each on the news. He sells 60 of these, raising £480, to buy the rights on the 40 he still holds, that is 480 (12x40) new shares at 95p. He has a little cash residue of £24 which he banks. When the new shares open, the MRO price is around 150p but 3 months later has climbed to £2. At this point he has 520 MRO shares value £1040 + £24 cash. Now to my mind he's made good money. He's lost a little on the 40 old shares he still holds but he's made a lot on the 60 he sold at £8 and on the 480 rights shares, now £2. This is all fairly straightforward. Sadly, You've driven me to reveal your true class, in your post of 7th January. gettingrichslow 7 Jan '20 - 08:49 - 15237 of 16811 Burford Just bought another £60k of these at 753-755. Bargain of the century.
meanwhile: If a sale of Nortek were to proceed, at the Bloomberg indicated figure of $3B, this would provide 60c (around 45p) per share, to either pay off debt, return to shareholders, or a bit of both. If past practice is followed, a good proportion would be returned to shareholders, especially as debt isn't too burdensome. With half a dozen engineering businesses to eventually separate out and sell off, the price this first one goes for may help to re-assess target sale prices for the rest. The failures to sell Powder Tech. and Ergotron at good prices last year had rather depressed these expectations. A sales figure for Nortek could have a big effect on the MRO share price, in either direction.
sliotar: The MRO share price seems to be levelling out close to its price 2 years ago but still below the 232p trigger level where the boys on the Board will start to earn on their current LTIP. In a favourable environment they seem to be struggling with value creating disposals. So in everyone's interest the Directors should consider following Walgreen Boots and team up with KKR or one the other real private equity players and take MRO private. The 10 Billion MRO market cap is bite sized compared with the 60 - 70 billion for Walgreen. With the new private structure and the experts from KKR alongside them the MRO boys could earn some real money and make 42 million bonuses look like small change. Assuming a 50% acquisition premium even those MRO shareholders who came in with GKN would show a return. Oh! And we might even see £3 by Christmas.
