From the annual report - "We have proposed a final dividend of 8.1p per share (2016: 7.9p), which, if approved, would give a total dividend per share for the year up 4.4%. We have slowed the rate of dividend growth relative to recent years to ensure that the dividend remains at a level we consider to be sustainable. The dividend per ordinary share grew significantly from 2001/2 to 2015/16 at a compound annual growth rate of over 11% and we continue to seek to grow the dividend." Not conclusive, of course, but encouraging.

Matt - possibly, but beware of generous yields, in competitive industries. eg CNA, SBRY and others where divis were cut and SPs fell sharply. I am holding SGC but am keeping a watchful eye. Having said that, there did seem to be some recovery in share price recently, until end of last week and NK probs.

SGC will easily smash 200p by end of this month, when it goes ex-divi. With 8.1p divi coming up and overall divi of 11.9p, at the current share price that's a divi yield of over 6.5%. It's no brainier really, perfect time to snap this on the cheap :).

Zho - thanks for link. I am holding but trend in share price looks a bit worrying and as articles says plenty of risks ahead. At least not being shorted (1.77%) at present.

Risks on the horizon for Stagecoach Jefferies has highlighted the risks ahead of shareholders in train and bus operator Stagecoach (SGC), with analyst Joe Spooner rating the shares a ‘hold’, but acknowledging that ‘requires positive outcomes to key events’. ‘Our 190p sum-of-the-parts price target leaves us at “hold”,’ he said. ‘But we stay cautious with up to 65p of that event dependent: renegotiated East Coast contract (9p), some success in shortlisted UK rail bids (26p), rebuilding Megabus US profits (up to 30p),’ he said. Spooner flagged potential disappointments in the company’s regional bus division, which accounts for 75% of non-rail profits. ‘Inflationary pressure on labour looks set to sustain, the offset of falling fuel costs has now largely played through and for revenues, even Stagecoach expects a “subdued” outlook short term,’ he said. ‘We prefer Go-Ahead, where we think successful event outcomes frame the upside rather than the status quo.’Shares in Stagecoach fell 1.8% to 178.5p yesterday. http://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-itv-reckitt-benckiser-and-stagecoach/a1036157?ref=citywire-money-shares-news-list#i=4

A new SRA or similar would be ground for variation. Virgin East Coast website on registration appears to acknowledge possibility it might not run ECML in the long term as it seeks that users agree to data being passed to other operators.

Delays at DfT means Govia maintains West Midlands for additional 2 months. Other delays at DfT due to: "Mr Paterson added the DfT was also dealing with requests from Virgin and Stagecoach to vary the contract on the East Coast mainline which the pair’s joint venture run".

Stagecoach: HSBC maintains Reduce with a target price of 160p. A lot of uncertainty around. Franchises?

Broker reiterates: Outperform: Old - 220p New - 225p RBC Cap Mkts To be honest, brokers vary quite a bit on this share. JP Morgan has a very different view.

"A DfT spokesman said it would make a decision “in due course”. The delay [W Midlands franchise] comes as reports surfaced of possible plans by ministers to pay train companies if the revenue they are making from their services is significantly below what was forecast." This might help SGC with regard to loss making East Coast jt venture. As referred to in recent results.

Keep your eyes on the shorts! 1.79% at present, so very low (excl positions <0.5%). If this % start rising I would worry.

shawzie, That comment was specifically about the Virgin Trains East Coast route, not the business as a whole. They have made a provision of £84m in this year's accounts to provide for the expected losses (hence the difference between 'adjusted' eps at 24.4p and statutory eps of 5.5p).

"Business expected to be profitable from 2019" I suggest that such a statement means 3 years of losses. Dividend may be cut or suspended, but if not would have to be paid from current cash or further borrowings. Stagecoach does have the Cash, but?

It's been quite a few years since I've been in Stagecoach but my attention was caught by the headlines "A Seven Year Low".That's not expected headlines for this top class team. Is this a buying opportunity or has something seriously derailed the business?

Hi m4rtinu, Honestly? I'm totally unconcerned, just back from a great session at the Gym :-) Really chuffed i can add more at these prices. I love market over reaction. If the divi gets chopped then i would review of course :-) I wouldn't be at all surprised if these are back above £2 next week :-) Public Transport will be in demand forever :-)
