RE: Soon be able to buy in the teens16 Jun 2021 17:28
Well if you are right I get my summer bonus in 2 weeks plus cashback from another share I applied for discounted shares, my allowance plus another 100%. Think I got around 60% extra (exact number tbc) so that extra 40% plus my summer bonus will all be going in here. Should increase my modest holdings by 30%. Get my 30p average down a bit =) In til the end and beyond! GL All!!

I think so, without getting the calculator out I figured it would be something like that. We will get some cash back which can be used to buy extra shares if the price does drop through some people selling to make a quick profit. They will get hoovered up quickly id imagine but don't think it will drop by much to tbh.
Hi Andy, thanks for sharing your story and it sounds like your on the right track. Hopefully a EUA cash boost will help you get there sooner rather than later!
Personally I have a pretty good job as been moving up the career ladder recently. However, I am currently sitting on debts of around 16k mortgage not included. Quite often there is a fine line between my monthly income vs outgoings. I started investing in EUA in Oct 2020 and put pretty much anything spare away including overtime and bonuses etc. Got myself up to almost 33k shares which im very happy about. I also took a bank loan and bought shares at the 42p spike which ive paid about half of now. I don't regret taking the loan, I just regret the timing. Caught up in the hype im afraid but I thought I would make a profit then and I still do now. Got my average down to 30p. If we get a quid then im debt free with a chunk of change towards changing my car. Life without unsecured debt will be a breath of fresh air im sure you will agree.
I think it is worth talking about since it was mentioned as a medium term target in the latest figures. Yes there's still a lot of debt to be cleared and it will take some time to clear. Im sure some of the KL sale will go towards that pile, then if they raise say £200m with cost savings of over £115m per year plus they have crucially shown that margins are increasing so I'm hoping £115m is a conservative figure. It's more than they initially estimated and then if Davies over delivers on this again then it's another win for him. Yes the company should be in better shape before recommencing dividend payments but Kier are proving that they are successfully doing this. Id initially thought 2-3years for a hopeful return to dividends, thats my bullish view to clear most of the debt, if I was to be bearish Id add another year on.
Thats quite a good RNS in my opinion and Davies continuing to deliver on what he set out to do. Obviously the market was never going to be set alight with confirmation of an equity raise, however this time it actually sounds like something I can get behind.
Did anyone notice one of the medium term targets? Dividend: Sustainable dividend policy with dividend cover of around three times earnings. - Id hoped for a return to dividends on a rough 2 year timescale and this seems to be in line with my prediction. Fingers crossed!
Middle finger to the 50p/interserve deramping crew and best of luck to LTH's
Imho this news should push the price up a bit (maybe around £1) then if further positive news on wednesday should push it up further. Maybe back up around £1.40 and take it from there. If negative news on Wednesday then maybe back to this level again. Will be watching intently
We shall see on the 21st if your 50p prediction is correct! Kier have paid the price with loss making contracts (paid to get away from them), this was all reflected when the share price was at it lowest. Market sentiment has been slowly tilting the right direction for Kier otherwise the sewer rats would be all over this. It's pretty quiet in here these days. Kier have been working on cutting costs, increasing margins and keeping productivity up as much as they can under the current climate. Like most here, we are eager for the interim update and I personally feel it will be a small positive step in the right direction. Any positive news will put this back over a quid.
One thing that is guaranteed as the results approach is that the doom mongers will be popping in to trash talk more frequently.
me either, im just looking at the other side. At the end of the day EUA just bust its seems, gimme that £3+ a share and ill be able to prove my wife wrong lol she doesnt give 2 f**ks about my investments lol But if I burn up in a Maserati after the sale I'll still get the frown. Moral of the story, dont tell ur mrs. I acted really strangely after the rns, bit like a kid that had 200quid for a 10p mix. She said is it in your hand? I said no, frown from her. Gobsmacked, she is huffing coz Im still partying =D
Like most its hard to understand the extend of the latest RNS. What we do know is that its MEGA and cannot have anything but a positive effect on the share price or the final price once the fsp is concluded. Im now at the point where a special dividened would do me nicely and watch this grow.
What I can say is that there are a lot of people squirming in their pants at the moment for various reasons and they have been out in full force over the weekend. Its funny watching them. Get some popcorn and take a seat. Your b*ll**** means f**k all when your in til the end
