Thu 17:11PearlsKnock to confidence302.10Sell
Londoner 7 - good comment.

I think there has been a material knock to shareholders confidence here, and purely from a chartist view, can see this stock heading back to the £2.70 level perhaps that it traded at for a while in 2016.

This is a large ponderous company and it will take them time to deal with the issues. As commented before, there is no need yet to buy more stock as the share price is likely to dip below £3 for some period of time.
Thu 13:54londoner7Opening a stake here300.90No Opinion
I believe the aerospace supply chain is coming through an unusual transition period with significant upgrades to the workhorses of the sky supplied by Boeing and Airbus. The aerospace market generally has a level of growth going out more years than almost any market I can think of with few disruptors on the horizon. Perhaps hyperIoop and spacecraft will impact in decades to come but not in my investment time horizon.

I returned to this market earlier in the year with an investment in Senior… Read More
Wed 20:50PearlsInsurance306.70Sell
My point simply is that of course they will have the mandatory insurance, but probably due to budgetary short term cutbacks, little more than this. As a result, they seem to have been badly prepared and let's face it, their latest update hardly instilled confidence in management did it?
Management need to understand that whilst certain things may need to be kept commercially secret, it is not acceptable for shareholders to be kept so poorly informed and for management to remain in place… Read More
Mon 23:22SuperchargerInsurance is a Legal requirement.307.10Strong Buy
They will;have Insurance in place believe me, they will be Statutory liable for certain types of Liability particularly in the Aerospace Industry and they will have to have arranged Insurance to operate and have licences to operate in certain Countries and States in the World where the Laws are very stringent. I feel that the reason for non disclosure is that the terms of their Insurance Policies are such that they will need to allow Insurers control of the negotiation. Insurers are very… Read More
Mon 17:17PearlsClaims / insurance307.10Sell
I do not think one has to be shorting this stock to comment that GKN should have had the correct insurance in place to deal with these claims. The inference from the press / the RNS is that they do not, and that there is some degree of behind the scenes 'negotiation' taking place. However, it is not exactly clear what the real problems are nor why such amounts of secrecy etc are involved. Things need to be a lot clearer for shareholders - they are owners of the business after all. Perhaps GKN… Read More
Mon 15:01FtsemajorRE: Insurance should pay for loss?310.10Strong Buy
Totally agree with you supercharger, this ia a great buy at the current low SP. This will head north again soon. STRONG BUY!

Seems like Pearls is shorter in disguise as he doesnt seem to have anything good to say about the business :). This is a £9 billion business which employs over 50k people, dont see it going anywhere in a hurry :).
