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: Ofcom finalisation could be sooner. BT ready to introduce changes immediately as long as they don't have to legally seperate the company. Pension deficit has saved a full split and this is in black and white on OFCOMs webpage. So really don't see why this is holding the share price down. Also deficit accounted for with an agreed plan in place in 2015 with pension fund that runs until 2029. Yes it has increased relatively since Brexit but so has all FTSE companies yet we are being held back. One could speculate that as the deficit has saved the split maybe it would be diplomatic to kerp the share price low until Ofcom report finalised? Otherwise with the company worth billions more it could be forced to pay off deficit and sell openreach? Grassy knoll theory I know but something is keeping this share artificially low imho

montyhedge: One thing boys, August is a very quiet month, holidays etc, so liquidity is very thin in the market, so buy backs will help any companies share price rise. Lets hope so. 9.60p in the bag anyway next Thursday.

montyhedge: Investors hate uncertainty, I think until clarity on Pension deficit, how much is it after Brexit? Also Ofcom news shortly will they do anything? Of course share price will just drift and shares don't drift higher. Come on BT rns needed.

minerve: Alphorn "Interestingly there is a direct correlation between the overeas earnings of some companies and the drop in GBP. The more that sterling drops the higher the share price of those companies and vice versa." An anomaly to this seems to be ITV. An increasing proportion of their earnings are coming from overseas - their production studio - but it has been 'treated' as if it wholly makes its earnings from UK advertising revenue. Perhaps a nice 'hedge' in itself, with a reasonable forward yield.

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.

pierre oreilly: angon Mont, what about the divi coming, which a couple of days ago you said people would be stupid to sell now? Ah well, single issue Mont. Every company has lots of pros and lots of cons. jUST PICK ONE AND PLUG AWAY WITH THE PROS WHEN YTOU HOLD AND THE CONS WHEN YOU DON'T. hARDLY A BALANCED VIEW IS IT? Still, you're certainly an eye opener for me Mont. Never known anyone so content to be viewed as a total waste of space by everyone else. And you really do seem to think your black and white views (black one hour, white the next) and your manic price targets based on nothing whatsoever help drive the bt share price, don't you. omg.

ariane: BT shares hit as Brexit renews fears over £10.6bn pension black hole BT shares have dropped to £3.93 from £4.40 when markets closed on June 23 BT shares have dropped to £3.93 from £4.40 when markets closed on June 23 Kate Palmer, Business reporter 28 June 2016 • 3:50pm Shares in BT have plunged 10pc following Britain’s decision to leave the European Union as Brexit re-ignited fears over the company's gaping £10.6bn pension deficit. BT has had around £4.6bn wiped from its market value since last week's vote, making it the telecoms company worst hit by the referendum outcome. BT's stock has dropped to £3.93 from £4.40 on June 23 amid fears that the economy will shrink post-Brexit, hitting company pension schemes. The telecoms giant is already struggling to plug a multi-billion-pound pensions gulf. By comparison, rival telecoms company Vodafone has performed relatively well post-Brexit, with its shares down around 5.15pc to £2.19 since last Friday. Just 10pc of Vodafone’s earnings are made in Britain while half of its profits are made in euros. TalkTalk, the FTSE 250-listed broadband company, has seen a lesser 8pc drop to £2.07, while shares in pay-TV provider Sky have dipped 7pc to £8.30 since last Thursday. PUBLICITÉ inRead invented by Teads Analysts at Macquarie put the dip down to concerns over BT’s pension deficit, which stands at around £10.6bn, a 50pc increase from the BT pension trust’s last official review in 2014. Investors fear that the BT’s cherished dividend payments could be sacrificed to meet the shortfall, said Guy Peddy at Macquarie. “BT’s short-term share price is Brexit-driven,”; he said. “The pension scheme deficit is mounting and could pressure mid-term dividend growth expectations.” According to the Pension Protection Fund, 4,864 out of the nearly 6,000 schemes it covers are in deficit, while this collective black hole has bulged 170pc in just two years, to reach £294.6bn. “Yields on Government bonds have now fallen below 1pc, which is bad news for company pensions,” said Martin Jenkins, a pensions partner at Irwin Mitchell. “Schemes’; deficits will grow and come under more pressure.”
