The markets at some point correct themselves to the mean. The chances of overvalued shares with no dividend going down is far riskier than undervalued shares paying dividends going up!
The derisk of Pension Funds has been the main factor in many of our devaluations 50% to under 3% is a massive drop by any standards!!
BT take note - you are one of the main culprits!

Goldmans upped their target and added 'Conviction Buy' whilst UBS who've never been a fan see's value at BT at 115p!! lol

UBS said the shares face several risks/overhangs", listing them as Virgin Media O2 "possibly revisiting M&A discussions with TalkTalk", Sky shifting some of its wholesale broadband business away from Openreach, new CEO Allison Kirkby potentially accelerating the existing strategy with the result of a dividend cut, the 24.5% stake by Altice "may now be more of an overhang than an element of support", and finally that the Labour Party is "reportedly looking to remove mid-contract price rises for consumers and indexation at Openreach".

The Swiss bank reiterated its 'sell' rating and 115p share price target.

Over at Goldman Sachs, the telecoms team have taken a much brighter view, hiking their target price to 290p from 280p.

Smurfy : “No increase in dividend ? Disgusting.”

The interim dividend is always fixed at 30% of last years total dividend.
So 30% of 7.7p = 2.31p
Any Changes up or down are made at year end.

I'll buy quite a bit more than the dividend basically. Compounding the dividend makes sense with the current yield.

Dividends can only be paid from retained profits which implies that free cash flow has been earned.

Considering BT is investing huge amounts of money in the fibre roll out, it is a bit OTT to say that dividends are being financed from debt.

Capex year to 31.3.2023 £5307 million

Cash dividend year to 31.3.2023 £ 751 million

Free cash flow year to 31.3.2023 £1339 million

Reference should be made to BT's published accounts to check the accuracy of these figures.

BT - price rises give performance a boost

Matt Britzman | 27 July 2023 | A A A
No recommendation
No news or research item is a personal recommendation to deal. All investments can fall as well as rise in value so you could get back less than you invest.

BT reported first-quarter underlying revenue of £5.2bn, a rise of 4%. Openreach was the standout, where higher prices and a growing fibre footprint helped deliver 8% growth.

Openreach is now 44% of the way through its full fibre build, expanding to 11m premises. First-quarter fibre orders were up 34%, but the overall broadband base was down as the shift away from copper lines continues.

Underlying cash profit (EBITDA) was up 5% to £2.0bn as higher revenue and cost controls were able to more than offset cost inflation.

Full year remains intact, which looks for growth in revenue and cash profit, as well as underlying free cash flow of £1.0-£1.2bn.

The shares fell 1.9% in early trading.


Our view
First quarter trading benefited from recent price hikes, and it was pleasing to see full year guidance was reiterated, pointing to growth in the top and bottom line. Management hasn't put any figures on that, but consensus is looking for a little over 1% on both, so nothing to shoot the lights out.

Cost cuts were in focus back at full-year results, led by the news that the workforce is planned to drop by up to 42% by 2030. Job cuts are hardly surprising, but the plans' scale surprised markets and pointed to many of the issues BT's been facing.

Costs have been a bugbear, and the £2.1bn in savings already delivered has undoubtedly helped. But once the fibre and 5G infrastructure is built and adopted, a much leaner operation is needed to generate long-term growth.

The wider strategy involves significantly modernising and simplifying operations and product line. This includes digitising customer journeys and moving customers onto the new 5G and fibre broadband networks, which have lower running costs than legacy infrastructure.

The real workhorse for this is the group's infrastructure arm, Openreach, which is responsible for maintaining and building out the new fibre networks. It hopes to reach 25m premises by 2026 and spending's set to ramp up even further as BT looks to take advantage of government tax breaks. This technical-heavy business is unique and higher margin, and an asset to the business.

However, substantial improvements aren't free. Constant investment is one of the realities of the telecoms business, as infrastructure needs to be maintained and upgraded. We worry that despite the progress and the goal of reducing spend once infrastructure's in place, BT will have to keep shelling out to keep itself on the cutting edge. It doesn't help that telecoms is an inherently difficult sector to try and deliver attractive margins. Both regulators and customers will always want more for less.

Another drain on cash is BT's large pension deficit. The current payment plan cost just shy of £1bn last year, and we're expecting details on the latest review shortly. There's the potential for a write-down on the some of the assets, increasing the deficit. That won't necessarily mean higher payments, but at the very least it'll extend their duration. Add to that the debt pile, especially in the current higher-interest rate, and the demands on cash are considerable.

BT has its attractions. Its mobile networks are broad and generally high quality, while Openreach is unique and higher margin. But it needs to leverage all of its advantages if it's to satisfy the never-ending investment demands and return to sustained dividend growth.

Set up well for the future.
Undrevalued, as is most of the UK market.

Really odd, wise capital spend on fast fibre, big takeup, good future earnings.
PE in single figures, hight dividend yield.

At some time in the future the pension issue will go away, even BT workers don'y live forever.

As Jansen said, going forward there will be a much smaller workforce.
A long term hold if ever there was one.

Crazy, I see Meta has risen well over 100% this year and after last nights impressive results the PE is down to about 40. so away she goes.
Dividend zero.

I will stick with BT
