Sector Specific Share Prices 18/03/13

This weeks share price table for your viewing pleasure. I have corrected mistakes in Support Services from last week – sorry about that.

House builders and Industrial Suppliers are looking good this week with strong increases so far this year. Very interesting to see how different Heavy Construction and Support Services companies are coping given the continuation of tough market conditions. We may take a closer look at May Gurney next week.

If you would like any companies added please let me know by leaving a comment. Feedback is also very welcome.

Balfour Beatty – Brief Share Price Analysis

So, my web coding skills are gradually progressing and I hope to make some progress with the company tables (mentioned in previous posts) over the next few weeks. In the meantime, and as Balfour Beatty have been prevalent in the trade press over the last few months, I thought it may be useful to have a quick look at some historical share prices.

Recently, BB have undertaken a major restructure (a realignment which is likely to yield substantial savings at the loss of around 650 jobs), and a supply chain consolidation exercise. Earlier this month they released a profit warning after reporting a lower profit forecast for 2012. As one would expect, this caused a steep decline in share price, but not below the key support zone of around the 245 level. More recently, contract wins in mid-November have set the bulls back in motion, although, BB’s price seems to be struggling to break through the resistance zone at around 253. BB’s average share price so far this year comes in lower than that of 2011 but the lowest price in 2012 has not sunk below the 2 year low of 214.6 posted last November.

We are hoping to undertake lots more analysis of performance over in the future. Once per month, we will have a detailed look at the performance a chosen company, including:

–          History

–          Fundamental analysis

–          Technical analysis

–          Recent and noteworthy news such as contract wins, restructuring, etc.

–          Speculation on future developments

We will also be home to tables of high-level statistics on all listed construction, support services, and real estate companies, updated weekly.

Mouchel Share Performance and Rescue Package

Struggling infrastructure and business services group Mouchel recently announced that banks will exchange £87 million of liabilities for a majority stake in the firm as a form of equity swap. This will potentially help to evade insolvency action although, as a result, the group are likely to be delisted from the London Stock Exchange.

Mouchel floated on the Stock Exchange in 2002 and are listed in the FTSE Fledgling. Since spring 2011 share price has consistently fallen as shown the below charts illustrate.  If approved later this month, investors are set to receive a special dividend of just 1 pence per share.
