|Anyone any idea when the cash is coming our way?|
|no worries Kellydog2.|
i didn`t understand|
|well my pateince with this one has paid off
holding from mid-twenties.
boring stuff really, but there was always value there, and you just have to wait for the market to see it.
now, time to seek out the next investment.....|
|As well as dealing costs, you will get less than the offer if you sold today.
You would have got 42.5p less dealing costs.|
|kelly, not sure if you understand , the takeover has been agreed at 44p.. period.. thats the price, so you sell now or wait for the offer to go through and save on dealing fees.|
|yeah - closed @42.5p, +19% net|
|Bird in the hand ;)|
|not to sure is it time to get out or wait for the takeover|
|Nah, looks to be a done deal...
For-side.com either holds, or has received irrevocable undertakings in respect
of, a total of 218,352,394 iTouch Shares, representing approximately 53.5 per
cent. of the issued share capital of iTouch.|
you're probably right, nod
...unless somebody else thinks they are worth more...|
|Mike - 35p definately broken after today's bid.
This looks like the end of the road.|
|ITU - having broken med-term rising-S, and having bounced off longer (jan03) rising-S, it is now edging up to key R-level ~35p yet again, indicators just about +ve; holding a few
could work its way back to 70p if 35p broken?
But Fib. spread from 14p (middle range fits prices quite well) suggests 48p target
Could obviously do with a more favourable broad market|
|Jorus, it depends where you trade the aim stocks. I use a broker and have never had a problem with larger volumes. I have tried some of the on line dealers and they did have restrictions. My broker is Lloyds TSB who have just started on line sharedealing side and if they can't do it on the numbers you are put through to a trader who can make the deal. It does cost a little more but you do get good service and generally I get a good buy/sell price.|
|Davron8 - the AIM index has doubled over the past 2 years according to The Economist.
Jorus - I think you would need to be trading large volumes in small companies to be restricted. I've never had a problem but then I don't trade very large amounts.
Melrose (MRO) announced a move to AIM yesterday. My 3rd holding in a few months. They are all companies who are on the acquisition trail. The cost of processing acquisitions seems to be too high on the main market. There are now some quite large companies on AIM.|
|All of this is true but ...
...you can't leap in and out with any real quantity when you want to.
Sometimes you have to sell at a discount for any amount over the usually small limit.|
|If you look at the performance of many aim stocks they have out performed the main index. Many are the growing companies and well worth keeping an eye on. 85% of my portfolio is in aim stocks. It also has the advantage of being cheaper to operate here than on the main index.|
|Some smaller companies have moved to AIM claiming the cost of acquisitions is too high when on main market. I don't know the reasons but this is what they are all saying. Small companies who have an acquisition strategy are moving to AIM.
Membership of AIM has risen 4-fold since 1999 and is growing strong. Overseas companies joining up too.
The Economist ran an article praising AIM. They said that european regulations and Basle 2 would make the cost of bank borrowing too high for small companies so more will look to raise finance via AIM.
So, AIM should not be viewed as a poor cousin.|
good point about selling upto the 16th may.chance to buy more?|

|You will have to remove them from your ISA, yes. But not immediately. The move to AIM is scheduled for 16 May and you are ususally given a month to act thereafter. If you think a rash of such forced sells might depress the price, you might want to get out sooner rather than later. If you think it's on the up, you can wait till the last moment.
You can sell them within your ISA (so you have the cash proceeds there to buy something else with), or you can ask your broker to maintain your holding but in a non-ISA account - in which case you will be deemed to have done both a sale within the ISA and a transfer of the resultant cash from the ISA, reducing the worth of your ISA (not the choice most people would go for, unless they have very particular tax/income needs.)
For the company, the move to AIM will reduce ongoing admin/accountancy costs - so it might be percieved as potentially enhancing profits. And it's not as if they were in a league where tracker funds will have any big holdings to dispose of. Hard to say whether the loss of a main-market listing will have any negative impact on sentiment. Some might regard it as indicative of a company moving backwards, but most new and future investors won't care that it once had a main listing. For companies too small to get into the FTSE350, I don't reckon there's any great advantage (for the company) in a main market listing these days.|
|I've got these in my ISA. Presumably I've got to sell them now if I want to preserve my ISA ?|
LONDON (AFX) - iTouch PLC said its former director Avi Azulai sold 6 mln
shares in the company, cutting his holding to 12.2 mln, or a 3 pct stake.
Anyone got any idea who bought them?|
