bakunin: http://www.bloomberg.com/gadfly/articles/2016-07-20/thomas-cook-and-tui-face-a-bleak-summer The above analysis is about 6 months behind events; everything it mentions has got baked into the share price in the last 6 months. Does she realise that the UK accounts for less than 30% of TCG turnover and that proportion is falling as Guo gives TCG tie-ups with China? That is why the company is run by people with funny accents and German-sounding names. The key to where the share price will now go will be what management say about the next 6 months. Apparently, everything is either fully-booked or too expensive via TCG. Aiming at being a premium operator is one possible way out. Just heard of the local headmaster booking a £5k holiday to Turkey. Is he mad? I asked. Apparently, it's a 5-star hotel/deluxe holiday. With that segment of the UK population (headmasters, deputy/assistant headteachers, GPs, council management, NHS management, Oxbridge graduates flocking to the public sector ...) all earning well in excess of £100k and looking for "ways to spend it" (quoted from the above-mentioned headmaster), the game might not yet be completely up for the TCG strategy.

bakunin: K I have a position at around £1 But, I have seen this type of share price manipulation too many times now. The UK stock market is basically drenched in corruption now as the UK authorities do nothing about the US hedge funds using it as their playground, as they can't get away with it in the US because of the litigious tradition out there and severity with which insider trading and manipulation by professionals is treated. I don't think TCG is now likely to recover completely. Just look at how many RNSs TCG emits in the course of a year. You can get 3 years' worth on one screen almost. So, it is only going to fester for months to come. However, I believe that it is fundamentally sound. So, I have averaged down today so that I will at least make a profit if a takeover approach comes in at say 80p (the price at which the FD bought shares recently).

paleje: Contrarian view for anyone brave enough:- Turkey spotting at Thomas Cook By Chris Bailey of Financial Orbit | Thursday 19 May 2016 Disclosure: I own shares in one or more of the stocks mentioned. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article. Bit of a Super Thursday in terms of the magnitude of results but the one that really caught my attention was Thomas Cook (TCG). 19%+ share price falls – at the time of writing - tend to do this. Of course the reason for this plunge off the diving board is the profits woopsie slipped in a few paragraphs into today’s first half update. And the reason? In a word: ‘Turkey’. I must confess I have never been to Turkey. I am sure it is a very nice place but the confluence of geopolitics and terrorism has made it a materially less appealing place to go on holiday at least for this year hence Thomas Cook’s assertion that ‘demand for Turkey remains subdued’. Spain may have been great but Turkey was poor and joining it in the out-of-favour locations is Brussels, another location that has been rocked by terrorism and also a city the company historically has had high exposure to. Bookings are down then by 5% for summer 2016. For any holiday company that typically (and as Thomas Cook declared today) make a loss over the winter period and profits only during the summer this is an obvious concern. Let’s not forget five years ago Thomas Cook pushed all of this almost too far and nobbled by a dire balance sheet nearly went under. In my twenty odd years of investing in listed companies my observation is that there are two reactions to a near-death corporate experience: either more good money goes after bad or there is a real change in the business. A 19% odd plunge in the shares may suggest more the former but actually after weighing all the evidence I think it is more likely to be the latter. Here’s why: Thomas Cook is not responding to all the above by slashing and burning prices. There will certainly be an offer or three at your local travel agent over the next few months but despite all the above gross margins for Thomas Cook continue to edge up…and that seasonal low shift into a net debt position was at a lower trough compared to previous years. It you want to spot an equity turkey (small ‘t’!) these are the key indicators to watch as they are impacted by pricing and cash flow. Let’s take the new earnings projection at face value. If the company achieves this it will trade at around five times EV/ebit which even adjusting for all the above uncertainty is offering some contrarian value. Thomas Cook has made plenty of mistakes over recent years but – just like the ultra-late apology and compensation payment made by the current CEO concerning the terrible deaths of two children at one of its resorts a number of years ago – eventually it does the right thing. At this share price – blighted by issues in Turkey – it is not a corporate turkey. I would buy the shares here. Chris Bailey is the founder and editor of www.FinancialOrbit.com

shaws67: Late April 2015 i plotted where i believe TCG share price will be in June. Exact centre of the circle is Friday 19th June 2015. But as with anything in shares, nothing is totally accurate, so give or take a few days either side. Will be interesting to see how it pans out. Chart one shows where i think it will go. Chart 2 show progress to date.

haircut sir: Mclellan, although I find your treatment of me very poor on my first day on this BB, I will forgive your rash judgement of me and my opinion, and understand that perhaps you dislike traders who borrow stock to sell especially if you have a long position in that stock.But I hope that you are a better detective where companies are concerned as you have made a mistake if you think I am the same person that Maximillian1 is. I have my own views thank you very much and tend to agree with Max at this moment in time about the trend that is developing with TCG.I have been watching TCG since the 50p per share days and took long positions at various points and bought into the rights issue which I regretted soon after as I could have bought in below the Rights issue had I learned how the TCG share price bounces about so often, (problems in Cyprus/Ukraine and Egypt etc) The rise here yesterday and today is a correction of over sold imo, but the city barbers have their clippers ready to shave this further down and maybe to sub 120 but we'll see. Like I said before, I see this selling as a trend for this time of year (sell in May etc) which short sellers will take advantage of, and not as disrespect for TCG investors whom I feel sure will make money in the long run.AIMO.

jfacwc: November 2012 saw the start of the big rise in the TCG share price. Final results for that time were not particularly that impressive .. but Harriet Green bought 500,000 shares priced at 23p (!). Hope that she hasn't made so much money to have an affect? Scrabbles post No. 8654 regarding 'common operating & handling procedures' is interesting. Just back from Malaga using Easyjet. On Friday morning - they had just 4 desks open, commonly handling over 10 separate international flights. The 'snake' queue was truly impressive. Luckily we had SB on our 2 boarding passes. Our plane was quite empty until about 5 minutes before departure, when all passengers finally arrived to fill it - suitably harassed and depressed... I truly hope the TCG Share Price does rise, but not at the expense of passenger enjoyment. Having been monitoring for quite a long time the TCG share price movements I personally have no ideas what affects it. However, I do find this TCG BB the best one around - for general comments and observations (& fun) - and hope we have some deserved success before Christmas.

bobsidian: 4screws In relatively simple terms the following may explain what has happened. Value of holding immediately prior to TCG going ex-rights 10,000 shares @ £1.42 = £14,200 Value of holding after TCG went ex-rights 10,000 shares @ £1.23 ex-rights price = £12,300 4,000 shares @ (£1.23 ex-rights price - 76p cost of additional shares) = £1,900 New holding of 14,000 shares at ex-rights price minus the cost of acquiring the additional shares is also £14,200. So the loss on your existing holding as TCG went ex-rights (£14,200 - £12,300 = £1,900) is offset by the gain on acquiring the additional new shares at a discount to the ex-rights price. However, the current drift lower in the TCG share price below the ex-rights price is increasing your loss on your original holding and reducing the gain on the new shares. Alternatively you could have sold your rights at around 47p - the intended value of the nil-paid rights at the time the share price went ex-rights - and the proceeds of around £1,900 would also have compensated you for the loss in value of your existing holding as the share price of TCG went ex-rights. As uppompeii states, the purpose of the rights issue is to raise finance for the company. It is not an exercise conducted to enrich the shareholder - rather to ensure the existing shareholders are left in a no loss/no gain position immediately after the share price goes ex-rights.

uppompeii: 4screws - the "right" to buy a share at 76p is a tradeable asset. You can sell yours or buy more on the market. I sold mine, luckily at the moment, for 57.9p. I cannot now participate in the offer to buy at 76p as I have sold those "rights". The price you can buy or sell the right to buy a share a 76p fluctuates against the underlying share price of TCG. If the share price were 100, the rights price would be about 24p. That is 76p + 24p = 100p. If the share price were 150p the rights price to buy or sell would be 76p + 74p = 150p. Does that make sense? If you look in your portfolio you should see the TCG rights alongside your TCG shares or spread bet. You will notice the price moving as the TCG share price moves.

fbrj: If I may add my tuppence worth..... I would argue that the current share price (150p) reflects the current market view of the value of the shares post placing but pre rights. Although there has been much discussion above about the effects of the placing element of the capital reorganisation (ie a fall in the share price to about 137p) - I don't think this is quite right. Although the number of shares is increased by the placing (and at this point everyone shouts "dilution!") what ppl tend to forget is that "dilution" is short hand for dilution of eps and forget to take account of the use of the proceeds of the placing - in this case about £88m, which will be earnings enhancing (or reducing losses) even if it is just paying off expensive debt. Overall the whole package has been warmly received. So I would argue that the current share price is priced on the basis that the placing is a forgone conclusion and has already occurred - in any event the placing is not hugely material as it is less then 9% of the share capital - as enlarged by the placing. Also it will be difficult to exactly determine the effects of the various components of the reorganisation because quite a lot is happening on 5th June: Dealings commence in the new Placing shares Nil paid rights commence trading Ordinary shares trade "ex rights" Turning to the rights issue itself. The following may help clarify what happens as there appears to be quite a lot of confusion! First of all your holdings need to be on the company's register by a certain date - these could be shares you currently hold or buy right up until the cut off date. This cut off date is 3rd June (referred to as the "Record Date") - which is on a Monday and is also the date of the EGM to approve everything. In theory you might be able to buy on Friday 31st May and still be in time to participate in the rights issue but your broker may tell you a slightly earlier date so all trading information is handled correctly in time. You will (assuming all resolutions passed)then be allocated some "nil paid rights" on a 2 for 5 basis - based on your holding on the Record Date. These rights can be traded and should be allocated into your share accounts where your TCG shares are held - by your broker. You could sell enough rights to pay for your new shares - known as "tail swallowing" - (last date for payment for taking up new shares is 19th June but your broker will probably insist funds and your decision are both available a little earlier) or you could sell some or all of your rights, or you could do nothing - any remaining rights will be sold on your behalf at the end and the proceeds automatically credited to your account in cash. You should also be aware that there will be significant trading in the nil-paids as they are geared to movements in the underlying share price and so the value of them can fluctuate quite dramatically...so much loved by traders during the couple of weeks or so that they trade! It also means that the value to you of them is not fixed either! Now onto some numbers. Let's assume the closing share price on 31st May is the same as it is today - ie 150p. So an individual holder who wants to take up his rights will have 5 existing shares at 150p and 2 at 76p - giving an average of 129p (whether or not an individual shareholder takes up his rights does not effect these numbers because in a company context, one way or another (ie it is underwritten), all those rights shares on offer will be taken up. This share price of 129p is known as the TER or Theoretical ex rights price. This in theory should be the opening price when trading on 5th June commences. This also provides the expected value of those nil paids (129p - 76p) - ie 53p. And as you can see is geared approx 2.5x to the share price So if the share price went up 5p (3.9%) the nil paid would go up 9.4% (5/53). A holder having 1000 shares would have the right to buy 400 shares at 76p and lets say his nil paids were either sold by him or on his behalf for 53p. He did have 1000 shares at 150p = £1500. Now he has 1000 at 129p + 400 x 53p(cash) = £1500. So he is no worse/better off than before. If he had subscribed for his rights he would have spent £1500 + 400 x 76p = £1804 but now holds 1400 shares at an average cost of 129p (ie the TER). If he wanted to sell just enough nil paids to fund some of his rights entitlement he would sell 76/129 x 400 nil paids = 236 x 53p = £125. He would have 164 rights left and would pay 76p each = £125 (ie the value of the nil paids sold). In this situation (the "tail swallowing" referred to earlier) the holder has not had to put his hand in his pocket to fund any extra costs of share subscription. He ends up with 1164 shares at 129p each = (guess what??) £1500. As you can see the difference here, compared to doing nothing, is that in the earlier example above part of the £1500 is held in cash - whereas here all the value is held in shares. Of course this is all the theory - in practice the markets will change and the share price will move around affecting all the above! Hope this helps to clarify some of the misunderstandings....Good luck in whatever you decide to do! FWIW I am a reasonably substantial holder with an entry price of around 40p.

zero matrix: Here is a little something to think about: 1. Assumption is that you do not alter the size of your position in TCG apart from subscribing in full to the rights issue (RI). 2. The RI will increase the number of shares held by 40% (2 new for every 5 held). 3. This is purely a comparison of profits, nothing to do with your initial investment in the shares, so also does not refer to the cost of paying for the RI shares. Because the rights issue shares are (almost certainly) issued at a discount to the current share price (in other words we assume the share price will not have collapsed to less than 76p!) the effect of purchasing the discounted shares will show an immediate profit. And because you will now have more shares, your profit will increase at a faster rate than before the RI for every penny the share price rises. So, if for example TCG closes before the RI at the same price as it did today (151.6p) your holding would be showing the same profit after the RI if the post-RI price is 130p. If the share price then rises to 140.8p your position will be showing the same profit as it did a few days ago at the 52 week high of 166.7p. If the post-RI share price then climbs to the 52 week high of 166.7p your profit will be the same as it would have been if the share price had hit 203p pre-RI. Or looked at another way, my avg opening price is currently 120p (I have been in since approx 46p but closed and opened a few times along the way). The share price would have to fall to this to wipe out all my profits on that position. But post-RI that share price would show a good profit, and would only need to rise 10p to 130p to put me back where I am today on an share price of 151.6p. I hope that helps some people. Writing the equations in Excel certainly helped focus my thoughts. If nothing else it demonstrates that finding some cash to take up the rights issue may well pay off handsomely. Of course, there is a downside, but if I really thought the share price would crash to that extent I would already have sold my position. Obviously I am not advising anyone here. Make your own minds up.
