pierre oreilly: Another Monty upgrade! I think the last guess was 370p with the ee deal, or 340p without the deal. Anyhow, I'm always willing to listen to an expert's opinion, so Monty, could you tell us the quantitive analysis (that means with numbers M) you've done to derive your 395p share price? Thanks in advance. (I'll help, since you could struggle with that one Mont. If X = current price, then if M is short 3 shares, then price predicition = X - 200 (OR 300 OR 400) elseif M is long 3 shares, price prediction = X + 200 (or 300 or 400). Much simpler than any of this p/e and eps malarky.
eaaxs06: It’s good to see the share price nudging 470p again, let’s hope it’s onwards and upwards once/if that level is breached soon. One thing that hasn’t been mentioned here lately is the share buy-back programme. Yes, I know there was a closed period for a month running up to figures, but they are committed to buying in £300m worth of stock, in this current financial year. That’s got to be around 60-70m shares and I doubt we’re anywhere near that figure yet, so I’d expect to see JP Morgan coming into the market soon, buying up 1.5m a day. Possible from next week? It should certainly provide more support for the share price and undoubtedly upset Monty just that little bit more.
pierre oreilly: Well you've said pretty much the same as me - that derivatives are attempted to be matched to avoid buying/selling the share. If they are matched, then no probs - the derivatives are balanced so if the underlying shares were bought and sold, there'd be no price effect anyhow. You only get shares bought/sold when the drivatives aren't balanced, and the counterparty would have a large exposure if they didn't offset with the underlying security. So if Evil shorts a small/mid cap with a five mill exposure it's unlikely they'll match the derivative, and they'd sell the shares (which they may not own, your view of real shorting) with downward pressure on the share price. As soon as you get to microcaps, my understanding has always been (but maybe wrong), that large derivative orders (from insider trading for instance, or minimising tax for the very confident) are more or less always offset by the corresponding share trade, which of course often leads to liquidity problems when you want to unwind the position. Just tbc, i'm not talking about 1 or 2k exposure here. As to 'real shorting' in your terminology (which ime only you use!) - then that facility just isn't available to pis i wouldn't expect. I'm sure borrowing something off someone else and selling it is only possible after pretty watertight legal agreements, already in place for market participants. But there's simply no need anyhow - derivatives make it all so easy.
minerve: Pierre Most people who 'short' aren't shorting at all! They are taking a bet using a spread-bet or CFD that the share price will drop. Most of the time no real shares are traded and the spread-betting company just matches 'short' and 'long' trades in doing business. 'Real' shorts are only carried out by portfolios worth £Ms because the brokers who allow you to short need to know you have capital to cover your - possibly endless - liability. In reality therefore, real shorting happens in hedge-funds and investment funds/trusts where they borrow stock off of pension funds and so on in order to short. This has the effect of boosting returns for the pension funds because they earn money for 'renting out' their stock. Everybody's dad or grandad has most likely benefited from short positions. Shorting, therefore, does have real positive contribution in aiding liquidity, allowing pension funds to earn money on what would be tied-up capital and can cool-off company valuations that are getting carried away. I bet there isn't a REAL shorter on ADVFN - they are all spread-betters and CFD gamblers.
eaaxs06: A little disappointed the share price hasn’t carried on yesterday’s advance, especially given the strong market. Still, can’t be too greedy. Good to see monty back on the board.
pierre oreilly: BT remains a buy at Berenberg StockMarketWire.com Berenberg has reaffirmed its buy investment rating on telecoms group BT (LON:BT.A), stating that the stock continues to offer an appealing valuation. Commenting on the potential benefits of UK corporate tax rates, the broker said: "...with an 18% UK corporate tax rate, BT should pay taxes at 40-45% less than German, Italian and French counterparts, justifying a higher valuation." Analysts have left their price target unchanged at 570 pence a share. At 9:54am: (LON:BT.A) BT Group PLC share price was +4.65p at 469.1p Story provided by StockMarketWire.com
eaaxs06: Good to see the share buy backs commencing this week; I’d expect to see a steady 400k purchased every day until Dec 4th. I know people will say it makes no difference, but every little helps, and it certainly didn’t hinder the share price for the past 2 days.
ghaon: What effect on the BT share price should Deutsche Telekom 'merge' with BT? They come on board as part of the EE transaction and will have an initial shareholding of 12% of BT if I'm not mistaken. I wonder how long before they are allowed to increase that holding? The Telegraph speculated on a DT takeover back in June and now that there are signs that the EE deal is clearing the regulatory hurdles the possibility of DT increasing its BT holding certainly becomes more real. Maybe not this year or next but the industry will definitely face further consolidation.
davdreamer: Seems to me we are seeing a bowl forming in the share price, (correct me if i am wrong)- Just let Monty know what is happening. Dont want him to be left out
