christh: Broker tips: BT, Thomas Cook, TUI, Burberry Wed, 11 January 2017 (ShareCast News) - BT Group got a lift on Wednesday as Morgan Stanley upgraded its stance on the stock to 'overweight' from 'equalweight' and bumped up the price target to 490p from 450p. It noted the shares have underperformed the FTSE 100 by a disappointing 41 percentage points in the last 12 months, providing a good entry opportunity. The bank pointed to three reasons why it expects a better share price performance this year: better operational news flow ahead, gilt yields coming off their lows - which is good for pensions - and a compelling valuation. MS said its AlphaWise survey indicates further strong quarters ahead for BT with market share wins in broadband and TV and rising average revenue per user. In addition, it sees further success in BT Mobile, driven by the recent push into family SIMs and the Enterprise market. It also said that full legal separation of Openreach is unlikely to play out given the higher pension costs it could trigger. As far as yields are concerned, it noted AA UK corporate bond yields have bounced from a low of less than 2% in early September to 2.7% currently, which is positive for BT's pension due to a lower present value of liabilities. On valuation, it highlighted the fact that BT is trading at a 16% discount to the median UK stock from almost parity in late 2015/early 2016. hTtp://www.sharecast.com/news/broker-tips-bt-thomas-cook-tui-burberry/25418299.html

christh: toon1966 11 Jan '17 - 10:03 - 20525 of 20525 I think posting anything that is relevant to BT is important! BT Sport does not rely only on subscriptions but on ad hoc sport fans who pay to view these sporting events. BT Sport has been developed and has become a brand and everything comes at a cost but is a success and making good money for the company. BT is now a versatile company, not just a communications company! From telecoms to broadcasting, broadband to data,mobile to fibre to the premises, research and development, pay to view etc. BT is a growth company and it will grow year upon year with new products added to its portfolio. BT share price is justified to be 560p and maybe 700p-800p in 2 years time or longer depending on the economy in the UK after Brexit!

christh: BT receives Barclays boost 08:30 10 Jan 2017 BT receives Barclays boost : Barclays likes the business’ ability to generate cash BT PLC (LON:BT.A) shares are significantly undervalued, according to one leading City bank. The investment arm of Barclays reckons the telco is worth 525p, which is 36% ahead of the current share price. Reiterating its ‘overweight217; stance, Barclays pointed out BT under-performed the sector ‘materially217; last year. It also pointed out that regulation ‘remains an overhang’. Remember, the company is involved in a stand-off with watchdog Ofcom over how its Openreach arm is governed. Setting that aside, Barclays likes the business’s ability to generate cash. While the roll-out of its network of fibre lines might impinge on this, BT would still have financial firepower to deliver 10-15% dividend growth over four years on a compound annual basis, according to Barclays. At 8.30am, the shares were marking time at 385p each. That’s around £1 lower than the current consensus price target. Of the 14 brokers logged as following BT, 8 are ‘buyers’ and only 2 have ‘sell’ recommendations on the stock. The remainder think BT is fairly valued. www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/171396/bt-receives-barclays-boost-171396.html

christh: x-div today so bound to fall the divi price, but tomorrow will start the recovery. The pressure is not on BT but the other telecom operators like Sky,talk-talk, Vodafone. They are trying to take market share but things will strengthen as EE is being rolled out and more subscribers are joining in. So the share price today will be a distant memory and you will be kicking yourself in 6 months time when the price is close to 500p, why you never bought! No matter some idiots how stupidly drug this down, this is a growth stock and as such will grow along with the income i.e dividend. Next year will be looking at a 15% growing dividend to this year's dividend i.e. close to 14p or maybe 15p.

christh: A dominant player The quad play space (mobile, broadband, pay-TV and landline services from one provider) is becoming increasingly competitive. A whole host of companies in the media and telecoms space have transitioned into new services to generate cross-selling opportunities. However, BT(LSE: BT.A) is in a strong position to perform well even in this tough operating environment since it has been able to add a relatively large number of customers in a short space of time. Looking ahead, this should generate high levels of cross-selling and with BT now being the dominant mobile player thanks to its acquisition of EE, it may be undeserving of its current valuation. The company's share price has fallen by 24% this year and it now has a P/E ratio of just 11.7. And with its earnings due to rise by 6% next year, it continues to perform in line with the wider market. Furthermore, BT yields 4.3% from a dividend which is covered twice by profit. This makes it a strong income stock for the long term, which could increase its appeal at a time when inflation is likely to become a more pressing concern for investors. link hTtp://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=12988791&from=20370

pacemaker1000: Cracking read excell1... We all know this is the truth and that includes Ofcom! So why the lies? Sky looks the driving force behind the BT bashing, driving down the share price to ruin its only competitor and stop competition. Yes Ofcom why aren't you investigating sky's monopoly. At least we all thought we were in the same boat, that was until today! Now with BT ruined Murdoch steps in and gets Fox to buy Sky driving up the share price and giving it valuable negotiating power to further damage BT in the sport bidding war. Grassy knoll theory? Or the end of a very clever campaign? At least they failed in their attempt to get their greasy hands on openreach, yet that is....

pacemaker1000: here is an entertaining thing to do to confirm that BT's share price is all about Ofcom and the Sky/Talktalk debacle. head to google finance and use it to draw a chart of the share price of these three company's for the last six months. uncannily you will see that they are all EXACTLY the same level today!! expect them to take off in one of two directions come ofcoms 'final' decision in Oct. that is why sky/talktalk are panicking with their save britain's BB campaign! nothing to do with customers, broadband or Openreach, just business dirty tactics...... To quote from Highlander 'there can be only one'

pacemaker1000: Rumours of a takeover bid responsible for today's rise!!?...."..... BT Group plc (LON:BT.A) share price has outperformed the wider market on Wednesday, climbing over a per cent higher. As recently as December of last year, BT.A was at its 2015 high of 499.80p per share. Today, at over 20% lower, share price sits around 397p at the time of writing. With share price so low, and the pound particularly weak, experts have begun to speculate over the potential for a takeover. While there has been no evidence to suggest that any companies are weighing up such an offer, there is no denying that BT is in a vulnerable position to such an approach. Needless to say, all it takes is rumour and speculation to drive share prices in either direction, and today’s whispers have seen BT surging on an otherwise difficult day for FTSE 100 companies. BT share price is still down by over 15% year-to-date, underperforming its rivals Vodafone (+6.5%) and TalkTalk (2%). However, BT has outperformed rivals Sky who find themselves down 23% YTD on the stock market. A heated argument is continuing over BT’s Openreach division, with rivals refusing to accept the outcome of the Ofcom report released last month. Regardless of how they might feel, and whatever campaign they may run, for the time being Openreach remains a part of the BT Group. Last year, Openreach brought in 40% of EBITDA.

pacemaker1000: I thought this was sorted!!.............. BT Group plc(LON:BT.A) share price fell lower in early trading on Monday morning, continuing a difficult period for the telecoms Giant. Like the benchmark index BT.A fell from Monday to Wednesday, before recovering on Thursday and Friday, however the losses outweighed the gains. Throughout last week share price fell 3% in a highly volatile few days of trading, underperforming the footsie by the same figure. Share price for the group is down around 16% year-to-date, as compared with a 6% rise for the FTSE 100. One of BT’s most successful and most expensive areas of business has been the rise of BT Sport. The group invested huge sums into expensive TV rights, and is looking for ways to utilise this monopoly to benefit other areas of business. Reports emerged this week suggesting that BT will offer EE mobile subscribers free access to BT Sport, in a move designed to bolster the newly purchased mobile operator and increase the exposure of BT Sport. EE customers will receive a six-month free trial of BT Sport channels, which offers the likes of premier league and champions league football, before being offered a cut-price subscription to keep using the service. The move aims to challenge rivals Sky, whilst also adding to the service offered by EE. In an ongoing battle over the Openreach monopoly, BT’s rivals are continuing to pressure regulator Ofcom into separating the Openreach network unit from BT. The latest twist in the story comes as Sky are looking to put further pressure on Ofcom. BT had suggested that the pensions of around 300,000 staff would be at risk should the unit be separated. However, the Times has reported that law firm Sackers has said that there are many ways in which the retirement plans of those 300,000 would be unaffected. Ofcom is set to release a new report on BT and the Openreach unit later this month to decide whether it will invoke its right to split the two. The outcome will likely affect business and share price.
