I find this puzzling, the Daily Mail recommended this as a sell over the weekend! I believe they have some association with GCap!

Look at the levels of debt! Look at the uncertain outlook, cut in dividend and the high relative price = great short despite the spin brokers are trying to put out

GCap Media Plc (GCAP LN): Merrill lynch & Co. raised its recommendation on the U.K. radio operator to ``buy'' from ``sell.''

``With all the bad news arguably now out, we believe the pendulum could be due to swing back for GCap,'' the bank wrote in a research note. The shares increased 5.25 pence, or 2.2 percent, to 243.

There's alot of people talking this share down at the moment. My view is that it's a bargain at the current share price and those talking it down are just looking to push the price lower so they can buy in. By the summer things will have settled down and we will start to see the share price rise again. I've been involved in companies that have merged and it does take a couple of years for the organisation to settle down after a big shake up.

Anyone else got a view on this share? The board has been a bit low on posts this year.

things are looking up, the appointment of Hazel from Virgin and Yahoo! seems to have been well recieved by the market. 2007 will be the year that things turn around for GCAP. The quality of the broadcasting on capital has also improved of late.

I bet the listening figures will be up this month. The GCap stations have some good competitions. XFM is a really good station. I find myself listening to it more and more.

good to see there is some activity on this board at last. Talk of takeovers has been around for a while, with the current low share price it may have started the rumour mill again. My view is that this share has potential and is currently cheap but it's a long term investment 1-2 years for it to turn around. Plenty of posters on this board will probably disagree with me though.

FT 21 April:

"GCap Media was in demand yesterday as traders took the view that its lowly share price had left the UK's biggest independent radio group vulnerable to a bid.

GCap shares have lost more than 30 per cent of their value in the past year, and its market capitalisation has halved since the company was created from the merger of Capital Radio and GWR in October 2004.

According to analysts, GCap is the sort of turnround situation likely to appeal to a private equity group. They believe that its brands - the company owns Capital Radio in London and Classic FM - could appeal to Macquarie, the Australian investment bank keen to expand its fledgling radio business in the UK.

However, any deal would require the blessing of Daily Mail & General Trust, which controls 14.3 per cent of GCap, and it is not clear whether the media group would be prepared to sell at current levels.

GCap shares closed 8.6 per cent higher at 243p, the biggest riser in the FTSE 250. Daily Mail firmed 2.4 per cent to 672½p."

As we now know, up another 8% today. Surely something will develop soon.

A note on GCap Media, which owns Capital Radio and Classic FM, pops into my inbox. Sell, it says. Wilton Fry of Merrill Lynch thinks the 100 stations listened to by 16m people every day are suffering from flat advertising revenues and higher costs from digital radio.

Then, suddenly, the note is withdrawn. "Since the report was e-mailed to you it may have been recalled or deleted, or companies referenced in the report may have been placed under review or on restriction."

How exciting, I think, assuming that the Merrill corporate finance team has been signed up by a potential bidder for GCap and there is a conflict of interest with the bank's research arm. But Merrill explains, somewhat implausibly, that a link on the report accidentally became scrambled with a separate one for a company 1,000 times larger, General Electric of America, and the GCap sell note is reissued 24 hours later.

If General Radio, or Capital Electric, or whatever it is called, was placed under restriction by a major investment bank, frankly it would be a relief for shareholders.

The company was formed by an unlovely nil-premium merger between GWR and Capital two years ago and the noises emitting from the Leicester Square headquarters since have included a profits warning, a dwindling London audience share, a failed auction of non-core stations and a risky plan to cut the amount of airtime sold to advertisers.

Merrill may or may not be working with a bidder, but I don't see Ralph Bernard, the GCap chief executive, surviving for long. There are plenty of mediacrats raising vulture funds, eager to topple him. These include Tim Schoonmaker, formerly of Emap but now heading Macquarie's radio operations (with one licence in Plymouth), and Tony Ball, the former chief exec of BSkyB. I suspect GCap is not a sell, but a buy.
