BAE Systems, thriving on war…

#FTSE #SP500

Ranked 7th largest Defence Contractor in the world, the UK’s BAE systems appear to have a share price worth paying attention to. When we previously reviewed Bae Systems in February this year, it was before the Russia/Ukraine event tossed Europe into the current political shambles. Thankfully, all three of our price targets were attained and, with the share price soaring to new all time highs and closing above 805p, it’s time to revisit and once again stir the tea leaves.


This history of BAE is worth a read, the company being the successor to some true greats in aviation and the wider military field. This includes; Hawker Siddeley (the Harrier), de Havilland (the Comet), Supermarine (Spitfire), BAC (Concorde). Added to the mix, a vast range of historical shipbuilding and electronic expertise, ensures there’s nothing like a war to make the company sit up and take notice of their future. It’s easy to be curious where the company will plan on parking their submarines, given Scotland’s intention to hold another independence referendum, one which should not suffer the same degree of jaw dropping fraud as the 2014 effort.

We’ve a little axe to grind on the submarine thing, given we stay just a few minutes away from the largest nuclear weapons dump outside the USA. When the UK’s newest aircraft carrier visited recently and tied up outside the friendly local “Nuclear Shoppe”, it was pretty obvious the closure of roads and restricted access was an attempt to conceal the transfer of some big fireworks. All this hardware is expected to be moved, should Scotland regain its nationhood!


With BAE share price at new levels and now closing above our 3rd level target of 805p (it closed at 826 on Tuesday), the situation now appears to be a potential of movement above just 827p calculating with a potential of 942p next. If exceeded, our secondary is quite fascinating at 1001p. Our interest in the secondary is actually arithmetic. We simply cannot currently calculate any higher! For this reason, we’d anticipate some hesitation at such a level unless the stock market simply opts to start gapping the share price upward to create a new trend.

For those interested in “charty” matters, we’ve painted a Light Blue line on the Big Picture chart, showing an extremely obvious Glass Ceiling which formed for Bae from 2017 onward. For some reason, the stock market was proving reticent about allowing the defence contractor to trade above 684p. At the end of February this year, the market opted to Gap Up above this ceiling level and, the rest is history. It has shown strong growth and we suspect the climbing cycle isn’t over yet.

Bae would need fall below 600p before we’d be forced to take any reversals seriously.

SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. ‘CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.
