    • Golden rule says: "Don't buy if you don't know when to sell "

    • These things are up and down like a yo-yo. Seems like sentiment more than fact is driving the price. Sell them when exuberance is high. Buy them when it is doom and gloom. The underlying business is solid.
      1
    • Sell when you see that the business could struggle, or you need funds and market is overvalued. Its good solid company, good div, not overvalued, I honestly dont see any reason to sell...

  • Seem to be getting a few new contracts, Biden probably more into war than Trump(??), relatively low price at the moment over 5 years, good div yield.... seems like a good entry point at the moment? Any thoughts?

    • I agree, this is definately underpriced and i feel overlooked but has a great future ahead

    • Bounced twice from 500. (:

      • Should be rising with the ftse today after dumping with it, clearly being played down again - classic manipulation spike down yesteday immediately before the £2bn UK contract news..
        0
        • Driven by Sentiment. Aerospace sector struggling. Last result - taken billion debt.
          2
          • Of course debts are the normal now and a billion is nothing these days. Do let us know more when you see Western economies buying their defence systems from China / Russia.

        • Does anyone see a retracement back below 500, or is the only way Up from here?
          0
          • It has barely stuck its nose above 500p yet. Not exactly Earth shattering moves here are they?
            0
          • I see a possible retracement to 500/495p shoud be support. Dont rush to buy, wait for a dip.
            1
        • I did start buying from under 495, untill 430. Holding long, strong good news, new uptrend comming, potentially new all time high.
          0
          • Been held in pretty tight range today despite the reasonable news from the magic money tree, see if it gets end of day lift? Guess it makes a local high for divi payment date.
            0
            • Or an early up...
              0
          • Bought some, the news is very good but not sure if i should load up, advice please
            0
            • Done the easy 20pc rise since the players smashed it to 396p recent low, & £BNs of extra defence spending news has been pushed out now, obviously someone's either selling into news or looking for further leg up...where's the top?
              0
              • BAE guiding for higher profits & demand is high.. back to 500p before the divi gets paid?
                0
                • Tempted to buy but if Biden wins theres talk his anti guns might send it lower? Thoughts be helpful please as i dont want to miss the boat!!
                  0
                  • Trump got the troops back, Democrats favoured thier continuity ....irrespective of election results the paradox is that more ammunation is needed to keep peace... buy it for good financial award
                    0
                  • Biden is a puppet, Harris wears the pants, but can't see significant US belt tightening on defence.
                    0
                  • Nice retrace so far, a Tump win should power it on too...still nice to see highly vocal worry mongers who pushed msm messages are getting played again by quiet America!

                    • Craig Smithso you think a good entry is ~405???
                      0
                    • Down 25% ish just from 540 recent (summer) high, on no news...dividend distortions aside, that's a fair move that warrants a bounce & I'm expecting some macro pessimism will lift soon. Depends on your time frame as ever.

                    • I am equally surprised by the fall as i thought 470 was a very good entry point but of course i was wrong

                    • H&S since July? Rly ? I couldnt even see back all the way to july. What price do you think itll settle at then? I would like to get in around now but dont know if itll keep diving - RSI looks interesting

                  • Those looking for dividends can buy today before it becomes ex dividend...please check the dates once more

                    • Looking tempting for a nibble..
                      1
                      • Pretty poor show here today, but picked a some more up at close. Might see 450 tomorrow, so then could be on to retest that low?!
                        4
                      • That turned out to be a poor call, it looks like it will be a hold for sometime but cant understand the reason for that significant correction
                        0
                      • Seems the jump up on results day when divis were reinstated was just undone when it became obvious yesterday afternoon the second 9p divi take up wouldn't get a bump, and after poor down trend in recent weeks & fighting against strong £ too. So MMs offloaded & went short? Gonna head south a while i guess, maybe with a lift by the time divi gets paid.

                    • Bought at 495. Long. Ex-date after a month, probably will go up until then. (:
                      2
                      • Expecting it to be played a tad lower first, interesting that it was pushed from 508 to 540 just for recent dividend reinvestment, then dumped back down so someone's on the reigns here!
                        2
                      • Its a power play to scare buyers so that big players can come in cheap, i see every low as a buying opportunity till my funds last
                        2
                      • Yup, had a good start today but it's been selling off again, sure someone wants it lower to bounce up to the ex-divi.

                    • Solid stock and good earnings, I think just been ignored by the investors but can shoot anytime back to precovid levels
                      1
                      • buy target 440
                        3
                        • and this is why you should ignore price targets from these 'experts'
