1gw: Disclosed shorts. Counter-currents in play on Tuesday 15th, when the share price fell from 440p to 420p. AQR up from 4.60% to 4.72% (+0.12%) AKO down from 0.92% to 0.78% (-0.14%) So a small net decrease in the overall disclosed short position, subject to any late disclosures. The previous day (14th) when Old Mutual increased its short from 0.50% to 0.60% the share price finished down just a couple of p, although it was quite a wild ride. So either AQR's sell algorithms are disproportionately destructive to the share price, or AKO's buy algorithms don't leave a ripple, or something else was happening on Tuesday - under-the-radar shorts increasing or some longs reducing?

callmebwana: No Scooper72. Many of us bought in thinking £4.55/£4.50 was the bottom. You can't blame yourself for thinking that.We will be forced to sit and watch the share price do it's girations.Patience is required now.This could end up in the £4.80s just as quickly as well. The Market is worried about the USA and Korea. Gold miners are doing well. If you believe the fundamentals here then there is nothing to worry about in the long term. I bet the share price has trigered many a stop loss today. I don't use it on this share. AIMHO.

whattheduce: Ha, I love those auto generated news stories like the one above. There has been a very significant change in the company stock price yet the auto script drums out the numbers as if there was just a gentle to and fro in the share price over the months. Share price has increased 49.1 but decreased 437.8, yet the story is indicated as a buy?????? If you followed these auto stories you could end up bust within the week. Meaningless info really. What is far more interesting to know is what was Logview drinking? If it was Vodka, I buy a few more shares, whisky, I may sell and for brandy hold. That's how to play the market. ps iWeb trades are a flat £5 with no fees (S&S isa), although there is now a rather steep £200 account opening fee.

callmebwana: The Bollinger Bands are quite tight on the chart. @£4.32 The share price was trading outside them. The Bots will sell. The tight Bollingers are telling me there is going to be a big movement in the share price.I hope upwards. We wiil see tomorrow. In the meantime the Shorters have the upper hand.Shorters distort the share price. I hate them. I am not a very skilled user of charting ,tough charting has been a good tool for me to use in trading.RSI,Bollinger Bands and the MACD are all useful indicators. You can use Inveting.com for charts. DYOR etc. ATB and GLA for tomorrow.

garycook: As recently as March I reckoned Petrofac (LSE: PFC) was a “top yielder I’d buy and hold for the next 10 years“. The share price was standing at 916p. But what a difference a few months can make, as we’ve since seen a 60% crash to 375p. It’s entirely due to the fearsome news that the firm had suspended its chief operating officer in response to a deepening investigation by the Serious Fraud Office into alleged corruption. It was all triggered by probing into the activities of Monaco-based oil firm Unaoil, amid suspected offences of bribery, corruption and money laundering. But does it all mean the end for Petrofac? I say no. While we have no idea what the SFO will find, including any possible financial penalties Petrofac might face, a common response by the markets to bad news like this is one of overreaction — with shares oversold and a buying opportunity emerging. Too cheap now? Petrofac is one I’ve liked for some time — being a picks and shovels service firm, it’s nowhere near as critically dependent on the oil price as many explorers and producers. And business is continuing as usual, with the company having just picked up a 10-year contract with Petroleum Development Oman for engineering and construction services. The share price crunch has dropped Petrofac’s forward P/E to only a little over four, with the dividend yield in turn boosted to more than 13%. Of course, that will all be adjusted when we know more of the investigation, and I certainly wouldn’t rely on the dividend now. But we’d have to see an enormous hit to the company’s finances for today’s valuation to not look cheap.Petrofac are a Strong buy now.

garycook: 2 reasons why I’d buy Petrofac Limited Peter Stephens | Tuesday, 6th June, 2017 The last month has been hugely challenging for Petrofac (LSE: PFC). It is being investigated by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), which has caused its share price to slump to 370p from over 800p less than a month ago. Clearly, further share price falls cannot be ruled out. In the short run, Petrofac appears to be a high-risk stock to own, since the outcome of the SFO’s investigation is a known unknown. However, in the long run the company could still have a relatively bright future for the following two reasons. Oil price potential While Petrofac is not an oil producer, the focus of its business is on support services within the Oil & Gas industry. Therefore, its performance as a business is closely linked to the oil price, since this determines profitability within the oil production industry. Higher profits generally mean greater investment-related activity, which is good news for companies such as Petrofac. While the oil price has experienced a difficult period in recent years, its long-term outlook could be relatively bright. The supply surplus which has been a feature of the market in recent years could now have an opportunity to be eradicated, since OPEC has implemented a production cut over the last six months. Encouragingly for the oil price, this has been extended for a further nine months, which should provide an opportunity for demand to catch up to supply. Certainly, it will take time for this to take place. However, demand from emerging economies such as China and India is set to grow in future years. Although there will almost inevitably be a gradual shift towards cleaner forms of energy, oil is likely to remain a major part of the energy mix over the long run. For example, car ownership is expected to increase significantly in China and demand for oil could therefore increase. This would be likely to have a positive impact on the oil price and, potentially, on Petrofac’s financial performance. Margin of safety As mentioned, the Petrofac share price could come under further pressure in the short run. However, its long-term appeal appears to be high given its current valuation. It now trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around five using last year’s earnings figure. Of course, there is scope for profitability to come under pressure in the near term, but the market appears to have priced this in. Similarly, a dividend yield of over 14% may be unrealistic, but it nevertheless shows that investors may be expecting significantly negative news flow in future which may or may not present itself. This could provide a buying opportunity for less risk-averse, long-term investors. Looking ahead While Petrofac appears to be a high-risk investment, it could also offer high returns. In the short run, its shares could be volatile and may fall further. However, due to the potential for a rising oil price and the company’s wide margin of safety, it could prove to be a highly rewarding stock for the long run.

mattcookson: I too have seen this as a buying opportunity...RR share price recovered from a fraud investigation quite nicely. Only 1M shares sold so far today and over 2M bought, bound to bounce any minute now..... People are snapping this currently like there is no tomorrow, seen some chunky buys this afternoon. Expect this to recover nicely over the next few days!! Investomania..... I’ve been bullish on oil for years. BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L) and Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) (RDSB.L) have been stalwarts of my portfolio for a long time, and at least with my relatively recent purchases of BP and Shell I am in profit. However, there may be another way to benefit from the long term rise in oil. Petrofac Limited (LON:PFC) (PFC.L) is essentially an oil services company which provides a range of services to oil & gas producers across the globe. I’ve analysed Petrofac and think it may present a buying opportunity at the moment. On two key metrics, it scores very well in both areas in my opinion. The Petrofac PE is 9.67 and the dividend yield for this company is 7.46% Why does it have a relatively low valuation and relatively high dividend yield? Fairly recently, Petrofac announced that it was under investigation by the Serious Fraud Office. On Friday 12 May, the Petrofac share price dropped from around 830p to around 700p as a result. At the time of writing it is trading at just 684.5p. Being investigated by the Serious Fraud Office may present a risk to Petrofac’s investors. However, I believe that the risks facing the company from both the Serious Fraud Office investigation and from the potential for a lower oil price may already be factored in to the Petrofac share price. Therefore, while I feel it is a relatively risky share to own, I believe the potential rewards on offer could also be relatively high. The Petrofac share price was trading at around 1750p five years ago, now it is valued at almost a third of that. I believe that oil prices could rise over time, with demand from emerging economies such as China and India potentially helping to reduce the supply surplus which has been a feature of the oil market in recent years. hxxps://investomania.co.uk/2017/05/petrofac-interesting-play-oil-price/

pm032017: With yields of 6% and P/Es under 9, these stocks look just too cheap Rupert Hargreaves18 May 2017 A furnace Petrofac (LSE: PFC) is one of the market's chronic underperformers. Over the past five years, shares in the company have lost 54% of their value as management has grappled with corruption allegations and the falling price of oil. However, it seems as if the outlook is now starting to improve for the company as the oil price stabilises and customers start to drill for oil again. That said, six days ago it was revealed that the serious fraud office is investigating the business under suspicion of bribery, corruption and money laundering in relation to a probe into Moroccan oil company Unaoil. While damaging, it's unlikely this investigation will lead to the end of the business as we know it, and the recent share price declines powered by the bribery announcement present an excellent opportunity for investors. Undervalued At the time of writing, shares in Petrofac are trading at a forward P/E of 9.2. What's more, the shares support a dividend yield of 6.6%, and the payout of 53.4p per share is covered 1.7 times by estimated 2017 earnings per share. These earnings look safe as at the end of 2016 Petrofac reported an order backlog of $14.3bn. Since then, orders have continued to roll in, the latest of which is a $1.3bn project in Kuwait. So it seems that despite the company's problems, it is business as usual for the group and with this being the case, the shares look too cheap to pass up. Granted, the SFO investigation may hang over the business for some time, but any penalty imposed should be easily managed by Petrofac, which has been working hard to reduce its debt and improve cash generation in recent years. Overall, with a 6.6% dividend yield and low valuation, the shares look extremely attractive. Cash cow As well as Petrofac, Vedanta (LSE: VED) also looks to me to be an undervalued yield play. Much like Petrofac, the past five years have been tough for the firm as it has struggled with falling commodity prices, a mountain of debt and political issues. These problems now look to be behind the business. At the beginning of this week, it announced its full-year results for fiscal 2017 and the figures showed that net debt has fallen to 0.4 times EBITDA. For some comparison, the company's larger peer, BHP reported EBITDA of $9.9bn for the first half of its fiscal year and $20.1bn of net debt, giving an estimated full-year net debt-to-EBITDA ratio of one. Vedanta's relatively strong balance sheet should help the company support its dividend yield, which stands at 6% on a forward basis. Based on City estimates for growth, the payout will be covered a healthy 3.1 times by earnings per share next year. At the same time, based on City estimates for the fiscal year ending 31 March 2018, shares in Vedanta are trading at a forward P/E of 6.6, almost the same as the dividend payout. This is one income and growth share that may be too hard to pass up. Finding the market's best stocks Vedanta and Petrofac offer the perfect combination of cheap income.
