They are also now working on the OR ONSA contract, would not surprise me if those roadworks were to do with that. As to looking like community service, can assure you that you most certainly wouldn’t see them in suits and boots doing that type of work - messy, especially in the wet, to say the least.
It’s worth adding to that, that the CMA to date have not been successful in any of their cases right. By all means with Marstons and Carlsberg it could be a first, however off the bat, and months ago, I’m fairly certain it was perceived as more of a time wasting exercise on their part. Each to their own, gl all - turbulent time’s in general - remember to keep an eye on the bigger landscape also.
Under normal circumstances, vaguely positive news. With Poulden at the helm it’s a disaster waiting to happen, for everyone except him. Knowing the greasiness of the guy it’s the only news he could put out to restart his pension payments and make way for raises - don’t be fooled the same as many others were, nothing ever materialises except further dilution and false promises.

Fair dealer. I’m really not attacking you or Barchild. Posted myself here a few weeks back and was a little surprised at the way BC responded, as such I decided to look at his previous posts regarding Mars to get a feel for his investment type and the way in which others are dealt with - you see how I didn’t take it personal there ? The statement made by Oracle back then wasn’t all that ludicrous was it, when within 5 months it came into fruition as he posted. The wild zero that followed was likely a result of guys poking the bear thereafter. You seem like a reasonable guy, and I’m aware you’ve both been here together some of the duration, one appears to bounce off the other somewhat. What I’m suggesting is likewise, where some of us have £1 + expectations... it really isn’t that ludicrous when you look past what’s right in front of you. Of course if that does come about within the next 5 months we can forget about all this and the posters that anticipated it and then bang on about how fundamentals have changed and what that means for Mars in that moment. Concrete thinkers vs Abstract thinkers - there’s the one size fits all answer to all the wild and pointless interrogations.
I’m bullish moving forward as long as we get nothing unexpected beforehand. Based off recent postings I’ve trimmed my holding a little more cautiously in order to take full advantage of any potential RI etc. The risk I now hold however is that if all goes well and suggested doesn’t come into play then my overall gain will be reduced as a result of that. Swings and roundabouts ehhh... core holding will now remain intact until further company updates.

No aspersions fella.
Posted by Barchid - RE: big fall coming 15 Oct 2019 16:20 Oracle If you really think they will go to 27p why did you not impart this esteemed knowledge on us all when they were 130p ? Or were you perhaps thinking then that they would go up to 270p ? Kindly enlighten us.
Does every post that doesn’t fall in line with your ways of thinking really warrant detailed explanations to justify such postings. The above shows clearly, that even whilst one appears to be in the know, one is also very much wrong also - over time.
You guys need to remember this is a bulletin board, take a few steps back and chill some. There are going to be mixed opinions. There are also going to be forward looking or backward looking statements based on beliefs rather than the cold hard facts some struggle to see past. It is what is and will be what it will be. It’s just a question of time.

The one thing I don’t get is back when this was £1.20 p/s a poster called Oracle posted here and was calling 20p p/s as per BC chat history. Barchild and possibly also yourself flamed him for this and demanded he elaborated on such nonsense - low and behold covid came and that exact outcome has happened. Now we are where we are all of a sudden you’ve both turned pessimists instead and that is what I don’t get. Is there a need for it to be explained ? Most likely not.
Thereality is that none of us can accurately predict the future and in short that is what creates a market.
Wasn’t trying to advise my friend. I’m here long term and anticipate great results over the duration. I wouldn’t want to be fully out of this at any point, that’s what I was trying to get across. My first buy here was at 72p and topped up again at £1.05 also. Have kept hold of those shares throughout and will continue to add on dips... likewise I’m reluctant to sell any and won’t be putting any limits on at all as it just opens the door in my mind, of selling yourself short.
When you look at the overall picture of Menzies as a whole and across the duration it’s a very attractive company to back moving forward, and that’s something you don’t see all that often. Has winner written all over it.
As above incoming. I’m wondering what the odds are of some accompany news as the new BOD look to show their worth. Ignazio was never big on RNS info so would be good to see Brad bring a lot more depth in that regard also. Orosur main site updated already to reflect recent board changes so that’s positive
