Considering that Tom is on leave and won't be returning to Bearcasts in September, it's interesting to note that two items on the top-10 leaderboard are Tom's Bearcasts. We look forward to their increased popularity when he officially returns to them.

Tom Winnifritb Bearcast: lessons from Carillion, 88 Energy, MySQUAR and the faux political correctness of my father exposed

Published 12 days ago

Here I am in Shipston with my father who enjoys bearcasts if they mention him so just for that reason I record again. His faux political correctness is exposed by the issue of coverage of women's cricket in The Guardian - the dreadful newspaper he has delivered to try to fool my family of public sector "working" lefties that he is one of them. In terms of the market I look at Carillion (CLLN) and 88 Energy (88E). Shares in both companies are collapsing today and I look at why and at what lessons folks should be learning. You could so easily have avoided losing money on both. Please note Malcolm Stacey and other Ocado (OCDO) bulls, lesson one on Carillion is for you. I also make it clear that while he may have some of the attributes of a Bulletin Board Moron as he showed HERE, Evil Knievil is not, in fact, a BBM, I was just joshing him when I suggested otherwise. En passant I look at MySquar (MYSQ) and explain why today's exposes HERE and HERE may refer to events a long time ago but are pertinent.

If You Agree the Building Trade Will Boom, Here Are Three Firms to Look At

Published 134 days ago

Hello Share Trenders. I’m about 10% in cash at the mo. It’s out of the ordinary for me to have so much money not in shares, but even raving optimists have to take a bit of notice of the gloomsters who heavily outnumber me - many of which write on this glittering website. However, I have spent some of my cash reserve recently on shares in three companies in the house building game. You’ve probably read me being boringly bullish about this sector over the last year.

Ocado - a compelling short

Published 448 days ago

Bears have a saying “never be short in company” but I have made an exception to this rule today and reopened a bear at 308p in Ocado (OCDO)  the second most shorted company on the market (after Carillion).

Balfour Beatty set for a slow recovery

Published 849 days ago

I was somewhat surprised to see the share price of Balfour Beatty (BBY) rise significantly off of the back of its final results yesterday. The UK based construction company had already issued several profit warnings during 2014, so it probably came as no real surprise to investors that it reported a £59 million loss for the year ending December 31 2014.

key element of dispute in its rejection of advances from Carillion, Balfour Beatty (BBY) has announced the prospective sale of its professional services division, Parsons Brinckerhoff, to WSP Global Inc. for a cash consideration of $1,352.5 million (£820 million).

Balfour Beatty & Carillion – another twist in the possible merger saga

Published 1074 days ago

Having previously concluded on the Balfour Beatty (BBY) and Carillion (CLLN) merger saga that ‘the potential synergies from a merger appeal to many investors, but with uncertainty as to whether a transaction can be resurrected and ahead of the results announcements later this month, it is a watching brief here for now’, the following updates with Balfour having now affirmed that it has rejected a revised proposal from Carillion and “lost confidence in the likely delivery of a successful transaction”. Carillion meanwhile is to “give further consideration to its position and will make a further announcement in due course”.
