    @TRC and construction companies’ shares: theoretically they ‘should’ have done well during the last few years, with all the government projects started but except a very short-lived intermediary uptrends that has never been the case – for most if not all companies in that SET subindex…

    what’s to blame for this? delays in budget allocations and project starts? rising material and/or labour costs during the projects’ durations? too small profit margins of those government projects? etc.?

    • they all did 5 years ago when the military took over uniq went from 5 to 15, stec doubled, ck doubled.

      Delays in budget? 100% at the military/government level, civil servants are not going to act on poorly written mandates where there is liability.

      The rest is business as usual.
