pierre oreilly: like horse racing, betters bet against each other, and the bookies make a living. The market makers for things like cfds is likely your broker who facilitates the trade, and up bets are generally offset by downbets. The bets are rarely laid off in the stock market imv, only when the broker/mm has an overlarge net exposure. Just like share prices balancing when buys and sells match, so do cfd prices (generally they are close to the share price, but sometimes not). I'm not sure why you think if share prices are rising, everyone is gaining!
spellbrook: BT bulls tip shares to rise 56% By Lee Wild | Mon, 30th January 2017 - 17:04 BT bulls tip shares to rise 56% Much has been written about BT (BT.A) since it warned last week that fraud at the Italian business would cost it over half-a-billion pounds. But, after crashing over 20%, shares in the once-mighty telecoms monopoly are one of the most heavily traded in London. Now, investors have two more opinions to consider before trading. Barclays thought BT shares were worth 525p prior to the warning. However, even after the recent bloodbath, analyst Maurice Patrick still rates the shares 'overweight', and thinks the Italy issues and public sector slowdown are worth only a 10% downgrade to 475p, implying 56% potential upside from current levels. He nips only a fraction off earnings per share (EPS) forecasts for 2016, still pencilling in a 1.6% increase to 31.8p. But estimates for 2017 drop by 8% to 28.9p, and by 11% for next year to a below-consensus 29p. Only in 2019 do profits increase significantly to 31.6p. Downgrades are blamed on slowing revenues at the Global Services operations, which trims 2-3% off group sales, according to Barclays. Underlying pre-tax profit in 2018 is seen at £3.55 billion, down £433 million, or 11%, from previous estimates and little changed on 2017. A commitment to dividend growth of "at least" 10% for the next two years is a confidence-builder. Implying a £1.8 billion cash outlay and factoring in £800 million of net pension costs, Barclays thinks it's affordable. Estimated free cash flow of £3.4 billion in March 2019, suggests "£800 million of flex to offset potential further Enterprise weakness, higher content costs, adverse regulation or higher Fibre capex within a covered dividend". BT shares also now trade on 11.4 times EPS estimates for 2018, a big discount to EU incumbent peers on 15 times. On an enterprise value/cash profit basis they're about equal at 6.1 times. Over at Haitong Securities, analyst John Karidis has seen worse. Yes, he admits BT's the warning was a "horrible shock", and he's cut forecasts to bring numbers in line with company guidance. But the fall has been dramatic and looks overdone. "Prior to [the warning], we think the share price in part discounted Ofcom destroying significant value for BT," writes Karidis Monday. "At this level, we think the share price also expects BT not to recover any value in the areas that caused the group to profit warn. "We believe BT's stock is very undervalued based on all our recent research on Ofcom, and on all BT said to explain the profit warning last week." Haitong has also cut its perpetuity growth rate from 1% to 0% because BT's warning has damaged investors' confidence in the firm's ability to realise its good prospects. This is why Haitong's fair value estimate drops from 560p to 445p, although it does reinstate its 'buy' rating given the recent slump. "We think BT will claw back significant value in the areas that caused the profit warning," reckons Karidis. "First, BT is an accomplished cost cutter so we struggle to believe it will keep losing money in Italy after FY18." Demand in the US is also tipped to pick up, given Trump's pro-business approach.

mj19: Days before!!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 'overweight' stance, Barclays pointed out BT under-performed the sector 'materially' 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, eight are 'buyers' and only two have 'sell' recommendations on the stock. The remainder think BT is fairly valued.Share Ian_55ae0ddd437b7.jpgIan Lyall
wisteria2: Sharp fall in the share price is the underlying worries in regards to future dividend payments!! growth has been eroded for the next couple of years with the knock on of reduced spending re brexit, and rising costs re infrastructure in bt. But all being well should recover from the over reaction re the share price. that's my bet...GLA holders

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: 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.
