Stage coach after hour sales (SGC)     

washlander - 01 Nov 2003 00:27

Again huge buys after hours.Why?

washlander - 01 Nov 2003 00:29 - 2 of 62

And another question how come most of the buys are cheaper at 77.35 after hours as opposed to 77.50 during trading hours. Thanks in advance

Take a look at

little woman - 01 Nov 2003 13:24 - 4 of 62

The fact that a trade is down as a buy is misleading.

When a MM wants to SELL stock, we/broker/other MM will BUY it. When a MM wants to BUY stock, we/broker/other MM will SELL it.

Only one Buy or Sell not both is recorded. Which one is dependant on the price, which is why sometimes you will see someone query (I've done it!) why my SELL is recorded as a BUY. (Usually because my broker has managed to sell it to someone else at the same moment and I got the better price)

The bid & offer prices are the MM prices they trade. we/brokers/other MM can trade at better prices without going through the market (but they do have to record it). So if you have some shares to sell through your broker, and the broker also have someone looking to buy they can match you both by giving you both a slightly better price, and pocketing the difference, without going through the main market. If they have more buys or sells they will go to the MM to make up the difference, and that why sometimes you can't get such a good price.

I also forgot to mention - look a the type of trades. Go to Help (top right) and then Trades.

I think that most after hour trades are the brokers & MM settling up! (But I could be wrong)

If you have a CFD account, you could trade after hours.

Thanks for the explaining little woman much appreciated.

SGC finally coming through - big volume last 3 days

hangon - 03 Dec 2008 13:43 - 8 of 62

Not much interest here, it seems.(currently 1.40)
-Today's fall of 18% seems hard as many expected the downturn (and fuel costs) would increase rail/bus seems the downturn has reduced the level of passengers.
Yet looking at a 5-year graph the sp is still above 2005-levels (before the general sp surge probably due to Markt daftness as the end became obvious) until it's below 1 - I'm not buying. The yield shows 2% - I presume this is wrong.

Interesting 7 year chart.

mitzy - 04 Dec 2008 15:48 - 10 of 62

Another 10% down today.

mitzy - 07 Dec 2008 11:53 - 11 of 62

Sell is my opinion to 90p or less

back to 2005 levels makes sense.

mitzy - 08 Dec 2008 09:39 - 12 of 62

Sunday Telegraph said sell the downturn is affecting the banking sector in London and will reduce passenger numbers.

Snip - 08 Dec 2008 10:25 - 13 of 62

I have bought sgc to add to the portfolio. Nice yield and a target of about 155

mitzy - 08 Dec 2008 15:03 - 14 of 62

Market up 200p oints and Sgc down 10p...

Snip - 08 Dec 2008 15:58 - 15 of 62

mitzy, it is important to stand back, be objective and to take emotion out of the picture

mitzy - 08 Dec 2008 16:08 - 16 of 62

good luck to you Snip its difficult sometimes.

I`m having a great time today. I look after a large sipp for my husband and am pleased to say that it is back in profit. SGC is just a tiny addition to it but oaks grow from acorns.

EDIT: maybe some explanation needed. I see a base forming at around 120 so I am bottom fishing

mitzy - 09 Dec 2008 17:40 - 19 of 62

Well done snip up 12% today.

Snip - 10 Dec 2008 06:07 - 20 of 62

hi no surprise. I don`t day trade any more, used to in the past, dow and ftse. Just boring investing and sometimes selling these days. I am fully invested now as cash only gets 0.1% and I see good value and yields in lots of stocks but am playing the safe stocks route

I am a TA person and used to have flashing screens but have cut back everything except for ss eod

I will probably keep sgc after 155, it is just that 155 is the first target so nice to quote. I have 21 stocks, 4 large gilts and 1 pib in the portfolio. I sold a short dated gilt a few days ago and went on a share spending spree.

Snip - 12 Dec 2008 18:24 - 21 of 62

sharescope end of day.
