From BBC Gerald Khoo, an analyst at Liberum, says the company's valuation is "attractive". "The lowly valuation reflects the challenges, but not the potential for management to address them," he says. He has kept his "buy" recommendation on the shares.

I see no reason why SGC should not rise steadily to 230/250p in the next year, and higher thereafter.

Looks like you were spot on, macthepak. This from today's Market Report in The Times - "Stagecoach was back in favour after analysts at Liberum concluded that reduced rail risk supported an upgrade. The transport company slashed its dividend to shareholders by 35 per cent last week and announced a fall in profits after the government stripped it of its loss-making east coast rail line franchise. However, analysts said that the payout reduction perversely made a positive investment case because the group would be under less pressure to win franchises to support the payments. “Having reset the dividend to a much more defendable level, covered by non-rail cash flows, the group is no longer reliant upon returning its bus operations to growth or winning profitable new rail franchises to sustain the payout,” Gerald Khoo, the transport analyst, said. “From here, the risks to the dividend ought to be firmly to the upside.” Stagecoach operates in five areas — regional buses, megabus Europe, London buses, and North American and UK rail. Liberum upgraded the transport operator from “hold” to “buy” and raised its target price to 175p from 145p. Shares closed up 7½p at 157¾p." hTTps://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/business/stagecoach-back-on-track-with-reduced-rail-risk-cxplq0mcj

The company is finding its correct market price after the Virgin Trains East Coast fiasco and the stupid dividend policy based on debt. Now the Virgin Trains East Coast is no longer on the books and the cost now capped and in the past. The dividend has been cut and now based on cash flow. The company needs re-rating that's all.

Preliminary results announcement in a couple of weeks, 28th June. Will be interesting to see how this plays out given that the last update stated that earnings were in line with expectations, however since then the share price has slid down from 180p to 138p. I've added a few this morning, so that's the kiss of death then.

It's not a loss, it's a let off! A blessed relief hence the share price rise today.

I wonder what impact this will have on the dividend moving forward with this loss?

The decision to take away the latest Rail franchise opportunity highlights the inadequacies at Stagecoach. Quite unsuitable to run any public services, not that buses today represent a public service, just a cash cow.

I suppose if Private Equity think it worth bidding, they must think the sector's cheap!

Thanks Jeffian, I hadn't seen that but it probably means SGC could go down again as quickly as it's gone up!!

Could be read-across from First Group which received a bid today. Sector ripe for t/o activity?

Anybody know of a reason for the nice jump today? Can't see anything to prompt it but hopefully it's a start on the long road back up to 200p plus.

#2002, See #1999. Check dates and look at graph. Souter leaves 1998. Souter retakes command 2002.

His sister was the driving force behind stagecoach.When she retired to her castle in the country the company started to decline.Every time he takes control the company always declines.

"Remember numb nut it was souter who ran this heap down to 4p then was shown the door" I don't want to get involved in this little spat but that is factually incorrect. Souter stepped down from CEO role in 1998 and from then until 2002 (your "4p") it was run by others, with Souter stepping BACK into the CEO role in 2002. It was his decision to invest £13m at around 13p that convinced me of the turnaround and I followed him in. Very glad that I did! Despite weakness of the past few years, I have almost had all my money back from many Returns of Capital and dividends over the years and my current holding is probably free. "When Sir Brian last stepped back from the business in 1998 it coincided with a period of profit warnings and a decline in share price and market capitalisation. Initially Scottish Power's Mike Kinski was brought in as chief executive as the group tried to expand following the £750m acquisition of Coach USA. However he lasted just two years before resigning and being replaced by Stagecoach's then finance director Keith Cochrane. Mr Cochrane, now chief executive at Weir Group, resigned in July 2002, with Mr Souter becoming permanent chief executive in December of that year."
