|US hedge funds have built up positions in pay-TV broadcaster Sky in a bet that 21st Century Fox’s takeover bid will succeed, The Sunday Telegraph reported.|
|Murdock needs to take over and fast SKY is dog sh1t , un-news + trustworthy and reckless with facts. In fact 20% of the news they report on is bull dh1t boring rubbish , reach for the TV controller style cringe. Let Murdock have his baby back.. The current owners will kill the corp if they don't change direction they are outmoded ...If Murdock doesn't get this then goodbye current levels...|
The former Labour leader Ed Miliband is leading a campaign for the media regulator Ofcom to launch a full inquiry into Rupert Murdoch's bid for ownership of the satellite broadcaster Sky. In a letter to Sharon White, the chief executive of Ofcom, Miliband is one of several senior cross-party politicians to demand that the regulator carry out a "fit and proper person" test following 21st Century Fox's bid for the 61% of Sky it does not already own. - Guardian|
|I quite enjoyed watching it rise a penny or two, every single day.|
|Someone got bored of 1p moves ;)|
|What's just happened?|
|average number of shares on loan (% of shares in issue) from Euroclear website increased to 11.32 last month but there are no short positions above 0.5% declared to the FCA. I can't be bothered to search through all those recent RNS Form 8.3 declarations. Maybe it is an interested party borrowing shares for the voting rights...
|Sold half of my holding today.
|Am out of these,I think it will go through eventually but could be a few bumps along the way so decided to cash in,good luck all.|
|Just as well we have the bid,not great results think we would be heading lower.
Basically they are paying to much for football but have little choice as losing it would be a disaster.
Suspect they will pay less next time though.|
|Sky customers could be about to lose Discovery and Eurosport channels.
Wow can only imagine they are using scare tactics to try and get them to back down,if it goes through I think many customers will leave.
|Watch Sky plc (SKY) closely on potential upcoming earnings-numbers surprise
|I'm a bit confused about timescale on this one.
What has happened to the 10 working day referral decision? Maybe they're picking 10 random days, before making a statement.
Certainly the market doesn't seems overly concerned, with steady 1 or 2p rises most days.|
|Essential investor you should have listened to me from the start then you wouldn't have lost your shirt !!!. I told you ages ago, don't blame other traders for your inadequacies.|
|Credibility?, coming from you, ADVFN's contra indicator.
Utter clown, you predicted doom for SKY and the opposite happened, just as you
did with mining and oil shares last year, most have doubled or more since.
Then you do a disappearing act, LMAO.
I sold on the bid announcement as did not want to run the risk of a deal falling through,
however looks like this will complete.|
|It needs to happen sooner !!! SKYnews is a failing news channel loosing credibility big time. It's Saudi Arabian boss has pushed it in a unnews worthy direction catering for the easy tricked naive segment of the market. Murdock is needed !!!|
|Agree,if its referred,which seems unlikely now due to the time passed then think it will be for political reasons,more than anything.|
|Quite a long process for Murdock vehicle to go through (EU clearance.....with March earmarked as a key date there....etc.), and therefore present share price reflects that pause before actual cash is paid. Somehow doubt that there will be a UK referral as checks and balances well understood in the sector, and UK would welcome the cash! However, the inexperience of the present Secretary of State for Culture may want to cover her rear, and the present May Cabinet are less than impressive in my view...making a real mess of everything, and dithering.Oh well we will just have to wait developments, but getting a bit tiresome.|
|Yes seems odd no comment yet on referral or not and its clearly well over 10 working days.Thought they would say one way or another.
Also price seems to indicate still potential for problems.|
|What happened to 10 day referral decision?|
|The 10 days should soon be up, but with holidays difficult to know precise timing..any clues? Hopefully no referral but should not upset the share price that much if at all...best for the culture Secretary to push it through while the market is a bit asleep with the holiday break...the doubters of takeover merit and price will soon move on. Forgot to take account of the EU oversight into the bid which may not be executed before March 2017 from what I understand.|
|I hope Murdock gets his baby back soon, SKY needs him. Skynews used to be credible now it's dog shot, it needs someone to put things right.|
