hession: I have been a Distrubutor for 12 years and have great respect for the Board of TEP. Like others, I suspect that the mild weather is depressing the share price. However, the Company has invested millions in a new benefit for Double Gold customers, whereby they will fit LED light bulbs throughout a customers house for free. This will clearly be a drain on capital in the short term, but is expected to result in great retention of quality customers and referrals to more. Add the prospect of home, car and pet insurance and possibly water in 2017 and this remains a long term hold. However, wouldn't be at all surprised if recent lows around 700 are tested.
davr0s: The final results rns says divi will be paid to shareholders holding at cob on 24th so the adjustment should be made at the end of Friday and the share price drop first thing Monday so my reading of this is it hasn't gone xd yet - where are you getting your info from?
silverfern: The CFO has now told you his estimate of the new long-term low ie 985p. The should give some assurance though no doubt the Board would have rejected a share price deal below 900p.it To be able to renegotiate your deal says they must want to keep him and this announcement is all about when they announced it and the prevailing share price
davr0s: Am sure it will have no material effect but latest RNs raises a few eyebrows - will they reissue them and raise the option price if the share price goes up -me thinks not
psmith1964: NSNO - I would guess people know who I am. I made my feelings known in private to my upline to NNL level. Predicted to that person what would happen to the share price 12 months ago if people didn't listen - guess what? He didn't listen and wouldn't pass my comments on and we find where we are with the share price because whether you want to believe it or not there is a lot wrong with the business model and it's offerings in today's competitive market and the current share price is not at its lowest yet I believe based on my research. I won't go over old ground to back up my feelings it is all on the iii board over the past few months which included an accurate projection last September as to where the share price is today. If problems aren't addressed they only get worse in time. With the additional debt the company now carries from a few years ago with future profits now not as certain as they were going forward a whole number of new risks are possible. What if customer numbers are not met ? There are certainly no guarantees for the projections because that is all they are. Who can tell if another 6000 customer increase is going to happen in a quarter now we see that as a possibility from the update. This certainly makes a cash call a possibility if those numbers are not met or reduction in dividend a possibility too or both. Uswitch are about to do a mass switch for people and I guess Martin Lewis will have another one soon as well. These are all things the company has not had to deal with in the past. We don't know what the churn rates are like yet. TEP avoided mentioning that in the update so I suspect that is probably higher than the past another indication that the fierce competition.is causing other problems regarding customer retention. There is not as much customer loyalty out there as there used to be and that has been brought about by popular use of comparison sites and the government as you know have just driven more people to these. We will see what effect this has had on churn in the coming months no doubt. The figures released by TEP in the recent update suggest they are not getting as many as new customers from the big 6 defectors as they ought to be with British Gas alone loosing 400,000. Also figures from BT, Talk Talk, Virgin and SKY suggest their customers are getting more sticky due to TV packages. BT and SKY will soon be offering a quad play with mobile phones available soon. Latest results from SKY show churn decreasing so it is only going to get more and more difficult on the telecoms side for TEP from now on. This share is still a big gamble to invest in at the moment if you do thorough research their is plenty to back that statement up. As we know gamblers rarely come out on top. It is why I think it is necessary to see what the next 12 months bring to see if TEP can cope with all the competition out there. Many ID's are also investors and some will be nursing losses in the company they trusted with their savings. This will demoralise some as people will be worried about their money. Money that a lot of people invested after the high of a company conference. They won't be so high now. This could affect their future as an ID as they probably feel let down right now. This is not a place to discuss being an ID. I do that with my upline which I keep in regular contact with and they know why I am inactive at the moment.
droid: I love all these TEP knockers few of whom have a clue what they are talking about. I was a director, for a time, of Euphony Communications which started about the same time as TEP in the late 1990s ( both coincidentally in Henley) in a bid to emulate the hugely successful Excel Communications based in Dallas and built up by Kenny Troutt. TEP, which operated from a converted pub in Remenham, ultimately moved up through all the gears and succeeded big time because Charles Wigoder who had made £70m out of People's Phone saw the potential and decided to back it. The business model relies on people gathering about 6- 12 customers each who are usually friends and family and stay loyal.The second rule of thumb is that 80% of agents eventually found something else to do and pick up a few pounds a month in residual commission. This 80/20 rule meant that 20% did most of the work, tended to be highly motivated and positive people who made a real success of the business longer term. This is why 7,000 turn up for the annual conference while there are at least 35,000 active agents on the books.I suspect very few are bothered by short term movements in the share price. The key to long term success is to have the best customer service in the business so that very few customers ever want to leave. I have been in these since they were a quid and have no intention of baling even if Winnifroth and his mates decide to have a pop.The people at TEP are extremely resilient in the face of any negativity.Yes, I was surprised and disappointed by the gas billing fiasco but, hey, even Tesco has had its momentary lapses.
psmith1964: Yes I do say you are making sweeping statements NSNO. You have to be able to detach yourself from being an ID and a personal investor with this one as like for many it is easy to fall in love with an investment for the wrong reasons which can and has been costly for many with TEP. I would imagine that probably describes you. If you think with the share price dropping by over 50% in the last 12 months that management have nothing to answer for then I wonder how much more the share price has to drop before people do seriously start to ask questions. As you can see by sales over the last few months some didn't bother to ask questions they like most sensible people who have seen their investment decimated have not bothered to ask questions and have voted with their feet. Some got too greedy and have lost a lot of wealth over the last 12 months. I will continue to add to this thread as and when I have things of interest to post
psmith1964: Sometimes it pays to think like a shorter which is what I did back in September 2014 when I published my prediction on the iii TEP board that this share was way overvalued back then at circa 1400p for a variety of reasons. It is sometimes easy just to read the good headlines and get sucked in by that but I looked a bit deeper as I wanted to know what risks may have lead to the fall in share price at TEP. To be fair on TEP they have highlighted a fair amount of risk items in their reports but many PI's don't read these. Maybe where this share is now will encourage people to read the full report and do a little more in-depth research.
hydrus: From Hargreaves lansdown:'known for running The Utility Warehouse, has had a torrid time lately, with the shares down almost 20% in 2015. The share price is now barely more than half the level it reached in late 2013. Its problems stem from a deal to buy wholesale energy that has left it uncompetitive versus smaller suppliers now that the oil price is weak. Labour's Canute policy of holding power prices flat, even if the market price is going up, puts energy firms at risk, and Telecom Plus is exposed here.Telecom Plus share prices, charts and researchSo we now have the odd situation that at a time when everyone else is trying to put 'quad-play' deals together for TV, fixed and mobile telecoms and broadband, the firm that has been quietly doing it for years with traditional utility services has gone deeply out of fashion with the market. Before too long we will at least know where the politics of energy supply is headed. If Mr Miliband does not walk into Downing Street after the election, Telecom Plus could be due a bounce.'
jimbo55: To answer Post 3800, I've got a grasp of basic charting technicals but know SFA about candles. Anyway, for what it's worth, the TEP chart ain't looking the greatest to me. I find the 50 day and 200 day EMAs are good indicators, and when the former has breached the latter to the downside, the outlook usually isn't too good (this works conversely to the upside). Looking at the following chart, with the 50 day EMA below the 200 day EMA, the chart has been in a clear downtrend (with the odd spike up) for the last six months: https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/q/ta?s=TEP.L&t=1y&l=on&z=l&q=l&p=e50%2Ce100%2Ce20&a=m26-12-9%2Cr14%2Cv&c= It looks like volumes are rising at the present time (the most recent volume indicator is the number of shares traded yesterday - a down day), which for the share price to fall, indicates more sellers than buyers. Make of that what you will, but my own personal opinion is that many of those selling now are likely to have been those buying at the higher prices around £20 late last year and earlier this year, and who are now sitting on hefty losses and starting to lose the faith. In terms of some of the other indicators, MACD (Moving Average Convergence and Divergence) has gone negative and looks like it has room to run. RSI is looking a little oversold by now, but I wouldn't take this as an indication that selling is exhausted. I find RSI useful to gauge whether or not a share has seen heavier selling than typical (there is usually some kind of reason - even if we don't know why here), but an oversold RSI can persist for a while. My own opinion for what it's worth, is that no charting indicator can ever be taken as an absolute, but used in conjunction with one-another, they can paint a helpful picture. Right now, the TEP chart is telling me there is no good reason to buy the share right now as a trade because it's likely heading lower. As to how low, well, I'd fancy around the £12 mark as a support level. If it goes through that, we're looking at £10 as the next level. As to whether it gets there, who knows? I favour fundamentals in combination with basic charting when it comes to my own investment style, and this is the kind of stock that will see value-based investors step up if it falls to the kind of levels where the PE, PEG and dividend yield (provided it remains well covered) combined make an attractive entry point. Just my tuppence worth anyway. If you want an example of a truly awful chart, check out this one: https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/q/ta?s=QPP.L&t=1y&l=on&z=l&q=c&p=e50%2Ce200%2Ce20&a=m26-12-9%2Cr14%2Cv&c= Today's spike up in QPP is just the kind of thing that will sucker in naive and inexperienced PIs. The chart, however, remains in a downtrend.
