Can lose most or all of the investment (1X) Don't think so though, as it's a utility. Not an energy broker, a utility. Too much at stake. Upside, could be 10-20 bagger or more easily ,in 2 years. That's the way I see it. 1 times loss vs 10-20 times potential gain.
I imagine that's what Great Britain and the Govt. there thinks, too. I.e., what's the rush? It will come back, so are the investors true Longs and "Investors" or just day traders?
Personally, I think these are the worst of times for short term investors. All the real wealth is in the hands of mega-wealthy and they will just bleed us retails for now. If I mega-wealth, I guess I'd just hold on to BGY or BGY.L to the cows came in again (or the bulls, or whatever). Wish I were not dependent on a short term gain... This stock has been extremely difficult.
Best of luck to all us who face the wait until February or March or who knows.
