Surprised these did not sharply move up with RNS stating that the funding was oversubscribed with high demand and hence had to be increased to 400m from the original offering of 300m for notes maturing in 2022. Surely this sends out a signal that talk shares are in high demand whilst ensuring the Company's financial state is improved to pay off exiting debt?

The directors control the dividend, the market controls the share price, so the yield just follows from a combination of the two. If the business can support the divi or an increase, then the directors will maintain or increase the divi, whatever the market judges the share price. Likewise, if the business can't support the divi it may be cut - the yield really is immaterial to the dividend declaration.

Yes I think a dividend cut is very likely, but, probably baked into the price. If they do cut it by say 50% I would continue to hold as the yield will still be attractive. wllm

Does anyone think the dividend is under threat here, it's currently near 10%? Surely that's completely unsustainable.

Bought a couple of hundred quid of this one. Could go either way but seems nicely discounted and can see it hitting the 200 mark at some point. More calfish than bullish, though. Will see!

End year bear closing, I suspect (although today's drop shows others don't need to). Balancing books for the audit. Could be some will reopen those shorts early in the New Year. Hope so - I'm looking to buy in!

Having taken a loss here the only thing that would persuade me to reinvest would be Harding getting fired. She has presided over a catalogue of entirely preventable disasters here and yet she is still in charge so I have absolutely no faith in her ability to turn the sinking ship around.

hmm interesting article by the telegraph, looks like they are grabbing an opportunity to bash talktalk. If virgin are serious, they would be better off buying TALK out right, and keep the name, imho it would be a mistake by virgin to mix the two under its own brand. WJ.

Oh well, so much for my theory! As I say, what Branson does is just a bleedin obvious strategy anyway, looks like others have the same obvious idea.

Pierre - except that Virgin Media is John Malone not Richard Branson these days, isn't it? Having said that, I've heard Mike Fries (of Liberty Global) speak on more than one occasion about the "rational competition" or "rational decisions" in the UK market - i.e. he appears to view the UK as a market where competitors will engage in price-cutting but only to the extent it makes sense in a reasonable time frame - in contrast with less "rational" markets where competitors are prepared to engage in price policies which lose money over the medium term in order to gain share for some strategic purpose. So while a move into "value broadband" by Virgin Media might be a concern for talktalk shareholders (unless it involves buying talktalk first) I tend to think Mike Fries would not sanction such a move if he thought it would lead to "irrational" pricing policies.
