Compass Share Price Points North Again and that Jolly Direction is Unlikely to Change

Hello, Share Munchers. The 12 month numbers for giant caterer Compass (CPG) were pretty scary. Revenue was shy by a fifth on last time. Underlying operating profit was worse, falling by 70% to £561 million. But the virus-blighted share price has been rising recently, and for good reason. For one thing, Compass has risen to the pandemic crisis well considering that at one point it had to close half its business…

Balfour Beatty Set to Leap Ahead as Covid Restrictions Thaw

Hello, Share Fans. Some companies which you might expect to have been knocked flat during the months of lockdown have not done all that badly, considering the dire situation which seemed to face them. One such outfit is Balfour Beatty (BBY), the construction giant…

Biffa – there's still brass in muck...

You may recall back in September I rhapsodised about waste company Biffa (BIFF) observing - after pacing through its capital markets day presentation - that 'the company is exposed to themes such as tighter regulation, recycling and participation in energy from waste'. A quick look at the shares over the last nine months showed that my hopes of a three quid share price proved correct. Having done all the difficult work, I really should have got back in the stock after it nearly halved at the time of the March lows. Anyhow, here we are in June with the share having regained about half the decline and today's full year numbers update is really in two parts – as are so many corporations reporting up to 31st March…

Another Thursday another reality pill, this time for BT Group...

I am sure if you are a Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB) shareholder you remember last Thursday. That - of course - was when the oil behemoth cuts its dividend for the first time this side of World War Two, as I recounted here. I talked about this as 'good news' from the perspective of its longer-term corporate health and need to initiate a refocus, but then I am neither a shareholder nor a dividend muncher. Anyhow, another Thursday…and another high profile dividend put to the sword: step forward BT Group (BT.A)...

Do You Still Want to Follow the Fellow Who Follows Tullow?

Hello, Share Rockers. This old punter has held Tullow Oil (TLW) shares since Abraham was a teenager. But I’m inclined to sell now. Perhaps not at the moment as the virus continues to have its wicked way, but that won't last forever. The latest figures, which don't really reflect the virus effect, are not that good...

Plastics Capital – placing to help “satisfy increasing demand”, but also dividends ‘suspended’. Hmmm…

“Placing to raise £3.74 million” announcement from Plastics Capital (PLA), including to enable it “to satisfy increasing demand for the group's products and thereby accelerate organic growth”. With also a relatively limited 4.5% discount to the prior 122.5p closing share price, sounds reasonable enough. But what’s that? It is to “be augmented by the decision of the board to suspend dividend payments for at least the next two scheduled payments”. Hmmm...
