exotic: Recent events will persuade more people to buy online this Christmas instead of shopping with the crowds. Looks like RMG share price has turned the corner now.
123qwer: This is the main reason RMG share price will hit new lows IMO Must read. I knew it was happening but not at this scale. About the pacels, just search for parcel delivery sites on google and see the price difference between smaller companies and RMG - IMO RMG cant compete and the smaller comapines have pick and drop off from your home, work and many other local points I can see RMG price crash very soon. Importantly, I am now finding RMG share price as easy to read as fracking SP ATB, DYOR/etc etc and consut a fincial broker, a few quid may save you a lot of money later
markfx11: Royal Mail shares a good long term investment Telegraph By John Ficenec | Telegraph – 3 hours ago ShareTweet Print Companies: Royal Mail plcInvestec plc RELATED QUOTES Symbol Price Change RMG.L 431.00 +1.00 INVP.L 598.00 +4.00 The 500-year-old postal service remains a strong fundamental business despite increasing competition and sliding profits, says Questor Royal Mail (LSE: RMG.L - news) 430p-39.2p Questor says HOLD ROYAL Mail [LON:RMG] has experienced a tricky introduction to life in the private sector and falling profits meant the shares moved sharply lower yesterday. But long-term investors should focus on cash generation and dividend payments, and the dominant position in the postal market which helps to give it staying power. The FTSE 100 postal service was only floated on the stock market in October last year and early turbulence in the share price is to be expected for a company undergoing a move from public to private hands. The company came to the market at 330p, and that means investors who backed the float are still up 31pc, with shares at 430p yesterday. The shares may have shot up to a high of 615p in January, but that increasingly looks like over-optimism. Matthew Lester, chief financial officer, said cutting costs and improving profit margins was proving harder than was expected at the time of the flotation. Investors are adjusting to holding shares in a lower growth company that will take longer to increase profits. The good news for investors is that with the shares rated on 14.6 times earnings, falling to 12 times next year it doesn’t have to deliver stellar profit growth to support the share price. Royal Mail is still a profitable company, and during the first six months of the year it made £279m in operating profit before all the costs related to job losses and technology improvements, down 21pc on £353m last year. But as the company moves from public to private sector, volatility in profits is to be expected. Last year’s profits were also flattered by a £35m boost from the taxman, an extra working day which added £20m, and £37m in other pension-related accounting adjustments. Allow for all that and this year’s £279m in operating profits is up marginally on £266m last year. Questor is always uncomfortable using these massaged profits, but in this case they are useful in showing how the core parcel and letter delivery business is performing. UK Parcel, International and Letters business, responsible for 80pc of revenue and profits, is profitable and cash generative. Letter revenue was up 1pc as price increases offset the falling numbers of letters being sent, while parcel revenue fell 1pc amid fierce competition. The overall business generated £117m in free cash flow, and net debt total borrowings less cash was £590m at the end of September a sharp fall from £903m last year. Analysts from Investec (LSE: INVP.L - news) forecast net debt falling to £400m by the end of March next year. Dividend payments are covered 1.5 by earnings per share, and more than twice by free cash flow. The 6.7p interim dividend, going ex-dividend on November 26 and payable on January 14, indicates a full year dividend of 20.5p, given the usual one-third-to-two-thirds, interim-to-final dividend split. That means the shares offer an income yield of 4.4pc, and the dividend is forecast to increase by about 8pc during the next two years. Then there is the hidden value in the London Development property portfolio. Its potential was shown by the disposal of the Paddington site for £111m in cash. The two most valuable pieces are at Mount Pleasant in central London and Nine Elms, which some have estimated combined could be worth a further £600m to £1bn, or 60p to 100p per share. Royal Mail had a net asset value of £2.7bn, or 270p per share, at the end of September 2014. We downgraded the shares from a buy when they looked expensive last year (565p, Hold, November 28) and when we looked at them last month (393½p, October 14) we thought investors should hold for income. We still like the long-term strength of the business and the dividend. The advice remains: hold.
markfx11: Royal Mail PLC Share Price Predictions: Can RMG Continue Higher? Details Written by Rob Shelton Category: Finance Published: 17 November 2014 Royal Mail Group shares Our technical snapshot attempts to decode the clues hidden in recent Royal Mail PLC (LON:RMG) share price moves in order to gauge potential future direction. The decline in the Royal Mail share price, in place since May, finally came to an end in October when a bottom formed at 388p. The consolidation at this level prompted speculators to step in a pick up a discounted RMG share price; confidence begets further confidence and more buyers bought into the story that the stock was entering a recovery. The story appears to have held and we are now witnessing an attempted advance towards 507p ahead of 532p. Immediate support is now witnessed at 452 and further gains are subject to this level holding out. We see a host of indicators being positively aligned which tells us momentum remains in the buyers' camp: The RSI is above its neutrality area at 50. The MACD is above its signal line and positive. The configuration is positive. The stock is trading above both its 20 and 50 day MA (@ 449.88 and 426.67).
chrisg: Minerve - I don't understand your post 6976. Maintaining the dividend will cost the company exactly the same whatever the share price is!! For the current year RMG is forecast to pay some 21p per share. Paying that dividend will still cost 21p per share whatever the share price is. Are you seriously suggesting that a company will cut its dividend simply because the share price is lower??? . . . . Also, I agree of course that not everyone will shop at Aldi and Lidl, but the issue isn't overplayed. The numbers of people who shop less at TSCO and MRW are having a very significant effect on those companies, and that isn't being overplayed. Just read their trading statements/RNSs. Further, your comment in your previous post 6974 isn't right either. RMG's dividend last year was much lower than normal because it only related to the part year that RMG was listed. For the current year, their first full year, RMG's yield is expected to be some 5.3% amd MRW's yield is expected to be 7.8%, not even close to double RMG's yield, and if you look just one year out, you will see that analysts are expecting MRW's dividend to be cut whilst RMG's dividend is expected to increase by some 7.5% above that for the current year, to 23.04p. Oh, and because of their poor trading, analysts are also expecting TSCO to cut their dividend as well. It's all in the public domain.
123qwer: In my respected judgement RMG share price will rocket if a first class stamp was put on the share price DYOR, lol.
minerve: You top-up when a stock is currently not in favour; not now (RMG). Recipe to lose more money here. Ask yourself this question; what is going to drive RMG share price forward from here? Let me know the answer because I can't see one. Please don't mention property sales because 'her at the top' has already come clear on that. She cannot afford to lie. If I was topping-up I would look at RR, TATE, HSBC. Spread your risk spongy2, seriously, I have been in this game long enough that I would never top-up all the time in a single share.
isis: Banks told ministers Royal Mail could have been worth up to £8.67BILLION, more than double its final sale price 21 banks pitching to work on floatation put value at £2.8billion-£8.6billion But the postal service was eventually sold and privatised at just £3.3 billion Share price has soared by 80% and firm is now valued at almost £6billion Labour's Chuka Umunna says decision 'could have cost taxpayers dearly' By MATT CHORLEY, MAILONLINE POLITICAL EDITOR PUBLISHED: 10:50, 25 February 2014 | UPDATED: 12:21, 25 February 2014 37 shares 113View comments Banks told ministers that Royal Mail could be worth as much as £8.67billion, before they sold it off for just £3.3billion, it emerged today. A total of 21 banks drew up valuations as part of a bid to become members of the team which floated the firm on the stock exchange last year. All but four of even the lowest estimates were higher than the price Business Secretary Vince Cable sold the firm, which has since seen shares soar by 80 per cent. New details reveal how almost all of the 21 banks valued the Royal Mail at much higher than the firm was sold for in October +3 New details reveal how almost all of the 21 banks valued the Royal Mail at much higher than the firm was sold for in October The government has faced growing criticism for its handling of the privatisation with opponents claiming Royal Mail was 'flogged off' on the cheap. The government floated 60 per cent of Royal Mail in October at 330p a share, valuing it at £3.3bn and raising almost £2bn for the public purse. But new details of the valuations drawn up by banks prior to the sell-off reveal almost all thought the company was worth more. The least optimistic bank valued the firm at between £2.8billion and £3.2billion. The low valuations from the other 20 banks ranged between £3.1billion and £6.9billion, while the high valuations varied between £3.5billion and £8.67billion. Business minister Michael Fallon insisted the valuations were based on 'limited publicly available information' and circumstances had changed by the time the shares were floated on the stock market last autumn. However since shares were sold at £3.30 they have risen sharply to almost £6 each, a rise of more than 80 per cent. Business Secretary Vince Cable has insisted the rising share price is 'froth' and it will take months before the flotation can be judged a success +3 Business Secretary Vince Cable has insisted the rising share price is 'froth' and it will take months before the flotation can be judged a success Labour's shadow business secretary Chuka Umunna said: 'The vast majority of banks that provided valuations to the Government expected the company to be worth more than the Government sold it for. 'David Cameron and the Tory-led Government have not only flogged off a much-loved national institution, putting vital postal services which people rely on at risk, but they have done so at a price which could have left taxpayers short changed and out of pocket to the tune of hundreds of millions of pounds, at a time when families are facing a cost of living crisis.

There are serious questions to answer about a decision that could have cost taxpayers dearly.' As the share price continued to rise, Business Secretary Mr Cable insisted it was mere 'froth', suggesting he expected the shares to fall after three to six months. Labour's shadow business secretary Chuka Umunna accused the government of selling Royal Mail off on the cheap and putting services at risk +3 Labour's shadow business secretary Chuka Umunna accused the government of selling Royal Mail off on the cheap and putting services at risk Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg leapt to his defence, insisting: ''Vince is not a sort of share price expert.' The Business, Innovation and Skills select committee launched an inquiry into the sell-off, and is expected to be critical of the government's handling. However, some argue that it is still too early to measure success and the scale of the sale of a billions of shares meant the price had be lower to ensure take-up. The government appointed financial giant Lazard to provide independent advice on the sale of Royal Mail shares, and when the floatation was completed their fees were £1.5 million. The underwriters Goldman Sachs and UBS shared £12.7million for selling the shares. However, the government could claw back millions of pounds because this fee also includes a discretionary element of 0.3 per cent. Mr Fallon said in response to a parliamentary question: 'These banks only had access to information in the public domain when they were preparing their valuations. 'Their valuations were primarily desk top valuations based on limited publicly available information and widely varying assumptions. As one of the banks said: 'These were, therefore, very much illustrative valuations which the banks produced several months before the IPO was implemented against a completely different backdrop (company, postal market and macro-economic). 'They, therefore, did not accurately reflect the specific circumstances and market that prevailed immediately prior to the IPO when pricing decisions were being taken.'

minerve: Ipavlou 'Minerve, if all the tracker funds waited for the date of entry to purchase new entrants or sell the relegated stocks, it would smack of sheer incompetence.' No it will not! A tracker fund is there to track the index. In other words, a tracker fund's objective is not to make money for its investors! It is not like a hedge fund looking for absolute return, or an active fund looking to out-perform a given bench-mark. If we are in a bear market the FTSE 100 tracker fund would follow the shares down! The price of purchase therefore is almost irrelevant. What is important is the tracking accuracy and cost management. I therefore expect the trackers to purchase as close as to entry date as possible placing enough volume to get good pricing within the spread to cover dealing costs and pay commissions relative to the current RMG share price and FTSE 100 index value. IMHO & DYOR
adelwire2: I cant believe all the rubbish about £25 compo...grow up. I am interested in the RMG joining the ftse 100 in December thinking and what that would do for share price. Fellow guessers, what do you reckon RMG share price would be by Jan 1st 2014?
