jeffian: "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."
bookbroker: Cut the dividend, Martin Griffiths is talking this company up and the share price is hitting new lows, they grossly overpaid for the East Coast Line, and to placate Souter and his sister Griffiths is doing a classic TalkTalk move by feathering the major shareholders pockets with generous payouts, small shareholders will get hammered by this policy. The company and the Govt. are dragging their heels, we need a re-negotiation on the franchise, particularly now that one of the largest Network Rail contractor is screwed, the state will pick up the tab, but now improvements will be delayed even further, coupled with the fact East Midlands Railways is a mess! Why does this company bother with rail franchises, it hardly makes a bean on them these days!!!
macthepak: Buys v Sells 2 to 1 in favour of buys but share price falls!? More market manipulation by MM's I remember seeing a similar pattern not so long ago when the share price was in its mid 170's the price then fell to 151p I hope this is not a precursor to the above. There have been several big buys recently, the recent share price rise could just be encouragement for the sellers to sell so MM's can fill the orders before they drop the price again.
macthepak: Excellent day. Although I am not a day trader I am in good healthy profit with the tranch of SGC shares I bought on Friday, to bring my average price down. I am holding and adding to dips in the share price.
macthepak: DDUBZY - you need to keep your nerve. Stay the course. The further the share price goes down the more attractive the free cash flow yield looks, one of the best markers for a bargain. I am seriously considering selling some of my holding in Lloyds and buy more SGC
kazoom: Hi macthepak, I know those are direct quotes from the company (so not having a go at you) but your first and second points are contradictory. What the company should have said was : "No significant change to 2017/18 adjusted EPS expectation, because we've decided to lie to you all about our profits over the next two years to the tune of £84m" To me it is a bizarre and unsavoury piece of accounting : > Take a provision against future unprofitable trading - which of course hopefully everyone will ignore as the company steers the focus towards the pre-exceptionals performance. > Overstate profit over the next two years by releasing this provision. Personally I'm left suspicious that if they have to stoop to that kind of reporting are there other things about the results that we should not trust? Also it is worth noting that whilst their profitability will be overstated in the next two years as this provision is released; the provision is a non-cash item but it will be offset cash losses in the next two years so there will be a disjoint between profitability and cashflow. I did very well out of investing in SGC in the past and was looking for a possible entry point but to be honest distrust of their dodgy reporting is keeping me out at the moment. And whilst you are quite right that they were able to continue to increase the dividends through the last recession - earnings and equity certainly took a knock as did the share-price - down around 2/3rds. Of course we've seen a big fall already in this market phase - down from around 400p at one stage I do personally think there is potentially more to come. So whilst I don't think this is a value trap at all and I do suspect that handsome returns will be achieved in the future from the current share price, I do think there may be opportunities over the next year or so to buy at an even lower price. All IMHO of course.
bookbroker: Not a lot going for this co., potholes in the roads delaying bus journey's, terrorism in the cities scaring travellers on trains, and overpaying for the North/East mainline franchise putting the brakes on here, yet the dividend goes up, Souter and Gloag seeing a handy payout, but being hammered on the share price! Is this a value play or a value trap?
sawadee3: It's always good to read posts like Louis07789, i regard it as valuable insight into market sentiment, a perfect time to buy :-) The share price has been in the doldrums for a while now, i suspect all doom n gloom is now baked well into the price. Wallywoo, absolutely agree with your post :-) Happy to hold forever.
davr0s: Is there news? My Advfn shows a news alert but no news is listed and share price dropped sharply at the open. Hmmm
sawadee3: Morning Soulsauce, those tunes still sound fresh even today :-) Can't beat those uplifting beats, much like our share price today :-)
