|DAVE OF DEVON
Thanks.The share price had been falling well-prior to the announcement but I imagine some folk had been taking profit as they did not expect further rise in the share price It is not generally regarded as a "growth" share but one with a consistent substantial dividend. I had considered adding today but the share price seems to have fallen below support at about 110 and on previous occasions the falls have been considerable , only for it to recover as quickly as it has fallen.
As you say this is a long term hold mainly dividend orientated.|
|This line in todays statement has probably disappointed those who want a fast buck and cannot live with long term prospects :
"Our results for the period show a decrease in revenue and EBITDA. This arises, as expected, from a shift in focus away from commodity business towards value driven solutions, coupled with the additional cost of our fibre network outsource."|
|Why the drop ?|
|Pity the share price isn't !|
|Strategy going according to plan.|

|Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? After years of treading water they are suddenly rising. Perhaps their inherent value is starting to look tempting to those across the water who would like to buy a British Telecom co. at a knockdown price relative to pre referendum value.|
|Is there anything going on here?
I see the Director changes and a strong rise in the share price for no obvious reason.
I have held KCOM for several years and it pays a good divi but no growth.|
|Peel Hunt Buy 115.00 - 150.00 Initiates/Starts|
|yield excellent and well underpinned
but growth prospects limited|
|At todays price the yield is still a very attractive 5.5%|
|Thanks Graham. There aren't many companies out there with low p/e, decent bottom line profits, manageable debt and paying dividends. I know the company has warned that profits might be squeezed through increased investment in infrastructure but it still looks undervalued.|
|It was extremely good value at around 95p.
Now it's just good value (ie without the prefix of "extremely"), with an excellent dividend yield and reasonable capital appreciation prospects.
Oh, and an outside chance of being an acquisition target.|
|Am I missing something or is KCOM extremely good value !|
|Sorry I was referring to Talk Talk|
|Try 8 historic|
|According the site its PE ratio is over 1000 so what am I missing otherwise its grossly overpriced|
|Do what I did.Sell KCOM,and put it in TALK,for better growth,and Dividend !!!|
|The company has already said it expects EBITDA to fall this year. I cant see the share price doing too much.|
|Off we go again|
|Good article on proactive investors, won't let me post link.|
|Solid dependable yield keeps this going imo|
