minerve: RCTurner2 No. I believe yesterday's (and previous days) news and events indirectly affected the sentiment and actions on GSK's share price Take this hypothesis further, if metal prices and oil prices continued towards zero do you think this would have no further affect on the GSK share price because you believe it as just 'noise'?
cyberian: The present share price seems odd when you look at the forward divi guidance and the net Novartis return value to shareholders as that gives a 10.8% return over the next 12 months. Plus we have some clear guidance from the Board that the pipe-line is looking very encouraging, with respiratory products having something of a significant recovery/improvement, plus the appointment of 3 major banks mandated to examine the possible float of their HIV products (maybe worth $15/18 billion). Further there is the latest news that with other major sector names they are looking at initiating a single process of blending components of certain drugs which would save up to 50% of processing costs (they have a plant nearly ready in Singapore for this purpose)...obvious some savings can and probably be shared to the wholesale buyers, but net margin returns will benefit GSK. The latter have already announced that they are introducing further cost saving factors in the US. Again as stated by others and some credible analysts the GSK share price is presently at a 20% discount to its main peers....so just need to be patient, I guess.
cyberian: After hours close(Friday) on WS the GSK share price was equiv. £13.43!!!
rangor: "The fall in the GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) share price to1428p is a story in its self. Not only is it back to where it approximately was in 2013 but it now stands on what I perceive to be a three year support level. (Have a look for yourselves.) If so, will the share price hold there and is it a reason to buy the shares as cheap at 1428p on an historic dividend yield of 5.4% and on the basis that "there will always be a Glaxo"; an approach that has generally speaking been a good point to buy the shares when the news looks bleakest?" Except that in 2012 GSK share price went as low as 1317, and in 2011 spent half the year below £13.
losos: Toffeeman - "market makers have jack sh1t to do with the GSK share price." Yes, you're right, but they do move the aim and small cap spreads around to suit themselves, had been watching their antics on XPP and a few others.
toffeeman: With all due respect Losos, market makers have jack sh1t to do with the GSK share price.
buywell2: U guys are missing the MAIN point The GSK share price has been propped up this year because they have been doing almost daily buybacks Now they have just stated that for the rest of 2014 they won't be buywell2 24 Jul'14 - 06:56 - 9115 of 9128 0 0 edit '' it is likely that share repurchases over the balance of 2014 will be immaterial '' this is worrying as the next MAJOR chart support level is circa 1325p the current bottom trading channel 1450p free stock charts from uk.advfn.com
minerve: anhar If the price of copper falls dramatically then that will impact future earnings for mining stocks. If many mining stocks are affected then their share prices will fall because investors will want to protect capital and/or find better opportunities. Similarly with oil. Because of their weightings in FTSE 100 indices, and FTSE 350 indices etc.. these indices will fall. Tracker funds will see outflows because investors do not want to be affected and thus, whether you believe it or not, that will mean GSK shares get hit also. In addition, large multi-million £ funds may reduce exposure to mining and may want to buy GSK instead. So they will place orders with market makers in addition to using computer systems like SETS. Market makers will walk GSK stock down to where volumes are causing the GSK price to fall. Economically IF governments, like the UK, have reducing revenues from the oil majors they have less money to spend on the NHS. Equally, if US interest rates rise, costs for companies like pharma increase. All these reasons are why GSK fell yesterday.
anhar: ...Share prices rise and fall because they do. Sometimes it is not possible to learn why but this is not always the case. These changes are not always noise. When GSK produce a set of results that exceeds expectation and is very confident that the reasons are well understood and will continue we would all know why the share price went up dramatically, except for anhar, who would not know GSK was announcing results! I never claimed that it is "always" mere noise that moves share prices. If you look back in the thread you will see that I acknowledge that there can be a real reason such as earnings surprises, a bid, a disaster etc. But those form an insignificantly tiny number of all moves. Those apart, almost all very short term price moves are random noise and consequently any post event explanations are spurious, done merely to satisfy some weird human need that thinks there must be an explanation or pattern when there isn't. On your other point, it's true and part of my strat that I pay little attention to most news on my shares and I do not monitor prices constantly. That flows from my approach of investing for income and more or less ignoring capital flucs.
cyberian: On the net Novartis return to GSK shareholders of the equiv.82p (already approved by the European regulators) it will be in the form of new B shares, and how one treats that tax wise is subject to ones own position. Whatever the share price is at any time is the share price and at a certain date I assume that the then registered holders will then qualify for the intended B shares, just like when a share goes XD after quarterly results. On the last results on 14/1 the divi was given at 23p and it goes XD on 19/1...simple. So sure the current share price may reflect the anticipation of the 82p boost to shareholder value but like the National Lottery one has to in it to win it! So like when we go XD the then share price usually falls the next day by at least that amount, then it tends to recover as investors again look forward to further improvements/initiatives by the company...and here we have the clear statement that the 2015 dividend will be maintained...the share price may then see a forward yield of 5% or whatever....plus in 2016 we may have a juicy IPO on the HIV interests. Like I mentioned yesterday the current average yield on the FTSE 100 is about 3.67%.
