Sunset777 - I don't as it happens, but as we know the public perception of a business is paramount. Can you recall their CEO and his £110M bonus!! The company made great efforts to bury this and extolling the virtues of the fact they now make their own bricks in the UK as a cost saving measure as that was more in the public interest for them. Sadly for the CEO it didnt work and he had to leave anyway, but what I mean is that all large organisations will promote their benefits and try to hide any problems.
Surprised BDEV hasnt pushed on a bit more than it has today so far though, as very good results as others have stated.
Sunset777 that could be right, although I suspect just a short term blip for PSN as they will no doubt market their "ability to correct any flaws" whereas Barratt seem to be staying ahead of the game, with the purchase of Oregon and other initiatives, so less volatility imo. If they produce strong figures tomorrow I could see this hit 640-650 in the short term.
Based on the previous report things are on track for another good year. Certainly new build houses round here are going hot off the production line sales wise, so could be a little gem, especially if they keep the dividend price up. Good luck for tomorrow.
Given the continued uncertainty around Brexit and fleets not looking to purchase at present I think there is a good chance this will rise on results tomorrow. Add into the mix the rental market in Spain will be in full swing for holiday makers so the VOH stats should be pretty good, translating into good Q4 revenue/profit.
Fingers crossed - only fly appears to be whether they have sorted the CEO issue ??
Is there a reason for the sharp fall in the last few days, other than investors taking their winnings?? The results were pretty good and not surprisingly jumped a fair bit on the news of recent acquisitions.
I dont get the logic sometimes. A company releases its Trading Statement saying everything is going well and there is the high likelihood of a good financial year and the sp drops, yet a company warns of doom ahead and the sp rises!
This can only be as a result of Mr T in the USofA and his Chinese issues.
Fun and games until the next figures are released.
Not sure gold. The Federal prosecution has caused the major drop recently, but company are avidly defending this and unlikely to adverse affect until next year. Last figures were showing as generally positive and on track for annual expectations - if that is met then should be good for the sp.
Given the winter has just ended and people eat more/buy warmer clothes and with the financial uncertainty of brexit, I think this is going to give good numbers tomorrow, notwithstanding the slight downside in relation to the beet production which may dent slightly, as the last release stated increased profit from better cost control. We shall see....
This looks like one to consider favorably, given the lack of any poor weather over the winter period means reduced insurance payouts and breakdowns should be good for the book, plus they have won some pretty serious contracts with large organisations.
Anybody recommend to buy more or get rid? Based on the earlier statement and dividend payout looks like one to buy, but price has dropped significantly over last few days so poss over priced? plus Paddypower had reasonable results and took a large hit.
The CEO's plans seem to have come to fruition over the short term and the medium/long term soundings are interesting. May also be well placed as Europe wide operation so Brexit may have less of an impact than others solely UK based?
