justiceforthemany: A dramatic slump again today then wipes out all the gains of yesterday. The only positive is the bigger shareholders are clearly getting very angry and frustrated with the share price here which may trigger some action from the board. [...] Sachem Head Capital Management reportedly wants Shire to offload or spin-off some of its assets as it grows frustrated with the falling share price
steeplejack: Most private clients are understandably transfixed by the price they buy a stock at.If you'd bought Shire at say £10 the recent setback in the price would be fairly inconsequential.If however,you'd bought at £40,the recent setback might irritate,if for no other reason that you'd be running a loss and your entry point was poor.Warren Buffet is famous for saying that he'd be quite happy for the stock markets to remain closed for up to two years at a time,it'd make no difference to him,since having decided to buy a stock,he was confident in his judgement and was prepared to see it through.Not much commission for brokers if that occurred.The markets are filled with a myriad of different investors.Some are looking for income,capital gain,some become stale bulls,some are momentum traders.The trouble is that private clients have a tendency to forget why they bought a share in the first place especially if they start running losses.The fact that they are losing money clouds their judgement.The market is as much about psychology as solid data and there are operators who everyday hope to unnerve the unwary into making ill conceived snap judgements.Every now and then ,you have to determine whether you are happy to continue holding a stock immaterial of share price movements.
justiceforthemany: As I said before the CEO gave a long interview with the FT a couple of months ago about how 'fed up' he was with the share price and how he felt the market was undervaluing the company. At the time the share price was 4400p. The share price is now 3800p and has been down to 3600p. Competition concerns are vague and unsubstantiated at the moment - only those 'in the know' truly know what is going on behind the scenes. Brokers continue to target as high as 6000p - they are pretty hopeless but this is a huge disparity with the current share price I guess this is what they feel Shire would be worth if someone bid. If he really is as fed up as he seems I doubt he would turn down an offer around 5000p this time. As for GBP vs USD funny how Shire gets hammered more than its peers who also have large earnings in USD.
justiceforthemany: Very positive commentary I'd say and 'all options are on the table' including a sale. I reckon the CEO is fed up with this share price and will sell up soon.
justiceforthemany: 5.09c/share so based on today's exchange rate = 3.9p/share Looking ahead and what is a fair share price here? I know brokers have been in the 6000p range which seems a way off at the moment. However based on EPS of $5/share and the current exchange rate you can see where they are getting this target from. AZN and GSK both trade on P/E's around 15. GSK is hardly a 'growth' share. Merck, Novartis & Co trade in the high 20's. Being negative lets say EPS next year falls 10% due to 'competition' and the £ strengthens (unlikely) so $1.35 = £1 Even then on a P/E of 15 the share price should be 5000p+
philanderer: London Ev Standard, Market report..... Among the risers on the FTSE 100 was Shire after Cantor Fitzgerald repeated its Buy rating, questioning the recent share price decline. “We believe that the breadth of Shire’s portfolio as well as its exposure to market segments with visible growth characteristics have been overshadowed,” the broker said.

justiceforthemany: If Shire had issued a profit warning I could understand the fall. I am sorry but when an upgrade in EPS & reduction in debt is met with a sell off and a near 20% fall in share price then yes I do become very suspicious. A forward P/E of 9 is very, very low for big pharma. I have shared my concerns with our CEO, Investor relations and the FCA. The pattern is the same also: US market opens and share price crashes here regardless of the wider index.
justiceforthemany: I know it is not illegal but it sure as hell should be. No one can deny that the share price almost always automatically drops as soon as short positions are taken and any rise is squashed/suppressed. I have seen many shares where even if the wider index may be up by as much as 3% the shorted share will remain flat or even go down! Positive results, ultra-low P/E, balance sheet all go out of the window. That is inexplicable, blatant manipulation of a share price and just plain wrong. Shire is fast becoming a pretty good example of this.
justiceforthemany: 5300p/share? RUMOURED BID FOR SHIRE Evening Standard The City rumour mill was in full flow today as deal-hungry traders suggested drug-maker Shire was back in play. Gossips said some of the biggest drugs firms in Europe and the US have hired advisers ahead of a possible tilt at the Dublin-based company. They added that Shire, fearing lowball bids, had hired defence advisers. Earlier this month, the FTSE 100 company’s chief executive Flemming Ornskov hinted that investors were valuing Shire too low after a 10% fall from the share price this year. He pointed to the healthy pipeline of drugs, including for ADHD and haemophilia, which came as part of the £22 billion acquisition of Baxalta. Shire accepted a £32 billion cash and shares bid in 2014 from US rival AbbVie worth around 5300p per share before a clampdown on tax inversion deals scuppered the takeover. The shares now languish at 4284.5p, up another 63.31p, or 1.5%, today after gaining ground yesterday, valuing the firm at £39 billion. Shire declined to comment on the speculation.
philanderer: Shire PLC (ADR) (SHPG) Hit 52-Week Low July 20, 2017 The stock of Shire PLC (ADR) (NASDAQ:SHPG) hit a new 52-week low and has $153.48 target or 4.00 % below today’s $159.87 share price. The 6 months bearish chart indicates high risk for the $47.93 billion company. The 1-year low was reported on Jul, 20 by If the $153.48 price target is reached, the company will be worth $1.92 billion less. The 52-week low event is an important milestone for every stock because it shows very negative momentum and is time when sellers come in. During such technical setups, fundamental investors usually stay away and are careful buying the stock. HTTPS://
