|eaaxs06: It sounds like a great move, especially as it’s with a local partner, in China Media.
I’m not surprised the share price has reacted so well to the news, let’s hope it received a favourable press tomorrow, and reassures investors we’re not a One Trick Pony.|
|broadwood: Merlin Entertainments
Merlin Entertainments runs 100 theme parks and visitor attractions in 22 countries across four continents. The company is the second-largest operator in the world to Walt Disney.
Merlin’s portfolio of brands — which include Alton Towers, Legoland and Madame Tussauds — was put together over the past couple of decades, but the company was only floated on the stock market as recently as last year.
Like Hikma, Merlin currently sits just outside the FTSE 100 and trades on a premium rating: the market cap is £3.8bn, and the P/E is 22 at a share price of 379p. With growth in annual visitor numbers running in double digits and an increasing international rollout of the company’s brands, it may not be long before Merlin gets to the front of the queue for entry into the FTSE 100|
|onething: I try to ignore the colours (although it is difficult as they are ... in colour), and concentrate on one thing ... is it high relative volume and a falling price? Clearly high volume and rising price is correspondingly good.Where do people thing these red sells are going to? MMs can only hold so many on their books, and if so they are doing that for a reason. If they find they are accumulating too many (as they have an obligation to buy in order to make a market) you will find the share price falls to the point where buyers come back in to take them off their hands.|
|onething: It is the age old problem of having a colour coded trade list. It seems the majority are indeed sells being at the lower end of the spread, but the trade screen is not showing the corresponding buy (yet) as these are certainly being accumulated as evidenced by the share price not falling. It has been steady all day. Maybe the worked order has been filled now as the price has fallen a little in the last half hour.|
