Post 27707...not necessarily...the personal assistant/secretary to CEO...he/she is in office day in day out... 0 0 0 The only way you could know the outcome of a Takeover bid is to have a Man on the Board of each Company! Also you would have to know a White Knight wasn't gonna appear! lol
It seems a lot of Shorts aren't taken on Fundamentals - given the takeover activity which shows the true value or at least more acceptable value just goes to prove! And people think the market is always right? Not in the UK I'm afraid!

I'm amazed Barclays aren't subject of a takeover bid at these levels. You would have thought a North American, European or even Japanese bank would see it as a prized asset and such opportunities don't come up too often especially with a bank with such history and pedigree. Even the largest Aussie bank might be tempted.
Shore Capital has reiterated a 'buy' recommendation on Barclays after its deal to takeover Tesco Personal Finance for £600.0m, saying that the stock should double from current levels. Barclays said on Friday that it will acquire the retail banking business of Tesco Bank, getting its hands on £8.3bn of gross unsecured lending balances, including £4.2bn of credit cards and £4.1bn of unsecured personal loans, along with £6.7bn of deposits Please do your own research as always and follow FCA guidelines

There are plenty of knock effects with low share valuations. Easy for predators to take out UK Companies on the cheap, which they are doing. Also it makes it difficult for UK Companies to takeover others, a strong shareprice shows confidence not only in the Companies but the economy too. Short sighted Politicians are just not getting the hint. I think CEO's should lobby Government to attract investment in the UK. They are far more powerful than PI's, the whole thing is getting beyond a joke now.
