teamwork1: We just have to hope the share price goes up.
christh: LONDON MARKET MIDDAY ------------------------ At the other end of the index, telecommunications giant BT Group was up 1.7%, the biggest blue-chip gainer, benefiting from an upgrade by UBS to Neutral from Sell. UBS said that if the merger of Three and O2 in the UK is blocked by regulators, this will reduce the risk of an aggressive push into the mobile market by Sky, a major rival to BT on television and broadband services. In addition, the Swiss bank sees potential for upgrades on BT estimates when it updates on its acquisition of mobile company EE. Updates on 5 May more likely amd a jump to maybe 470p-490p or maybe 520p. Re-rating overdue with the aquisition of EE as the assets have increased along with the revenue and profits, so should maybe another 150p-200p to the price making the share price over 600p This is my calculation for what EE is worth to BT.
minerve: Well, Essential, I haven't forgotten your question. I have just reduced my weighting here. That probably is your answer. When world growth is questioned and inflation is low the pension noose weighs heavily around BT's neck; same goes for the likes of GKN - which incidentally is on my watch list. Regulation, questions over OpenReach, pricing pressures and unknowns about fines for late installations etc.. are all leading to negative sentiment. Who knows where this will end? Now that I have sold a tranche watch it turn! :) I am replacing the investment with ITV. Data is a commodity and content is king. Pricing of broadband will come under heavy competition and SKY are ramping up their offerings again. ITV have some good content being produced and will deliver a yield in April alone with special dividends. We have the European Championships and the Rio Olympics coming up and Premiership Football and Champions League is coming to end - I think this bodes well for ITV and less so for BT. I still like BT, but like the share price, my sentiment has lessened somewhat but still hold about 4% in my portfolio. Min
pierre oreilly: Yeah, attacked every month yet they have transformed UK telecoms to the world's best, and have quadrupled the share price over the recent years since I bought as well as giving a fast rising and now substantial divi income. The government have in mind the value of our high-tech businesses to UK PLC and will never regulate to damage that.
minerve: Pathetic share price action. Goes sideways when markets go up. Goes down when markets go down. LOL
pierre oreilly: It's not rocket science. Too right. rocket science is quite easy. share price movements are extremely complex, being more about behaviour than anything scientific.
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.
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: 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.
