ben nevis: It obviously has pleased a lot of shareholders... but have they really worked out if its a good deal ? All depends I suppose on the share price after the dust has settled.
9degrees: The share price will stay the same but the existing shares are being cancelled and new shares issued on the basis of 39 new shares for 58 existing shares So no change in value of holdings just less shares representing the value of cashback
giwalker: Have been reading some of the recent posts. Will the share price drop by the amount of the special dividend or has it already been factored in?
accordeon: Agree with you, Big Boyo. No value in Boots: trading at PE 15, and almost 4 times tangible book value. Can't see any upside. The downside risks are manifest. At some point, these will dip significantly. But they have got a share price history of defying underlying fundamentals.
aos: Churchtower - I took my Xmas bonus last week, courtesy of a share price dip followed by an almost immediate recovery. I have decided to get back in again at 643.42. I am hoping that the 10p drop is the last and that we will see an upswing this afternoon once Wall Street opens, which seems forecast after yesterday's sell-off. I think also that the news of the US retailers Sears, Kmart merger may have some upwards effect on retailers. I might be wrong, but 'fingers crossed'. Happy investing to you ;)
psps: bad trading slower sales shares buy backs lower share price
psps: buy backs in the long term benefit the share price ( IMHO)
zulu001: No. If you bought the shares before the 9th you would get "a nice tidy payout" but the share price should fall by the equivalent amount on the 9th. If you hold the shares in an ISA, you could consider SELLING the shares (before the 9th) and buying them back later - taking a capital gain (which is exempted from tax in an ISA) rather than suffering income tax on the dividend (from which ISA's no longer offer protection). There are some nuances here - briefly computer buy/sell programs usually dont know about shares going XD and merely buy/sell in relation to moving averages etc. So the fall in share price MAY not be as large as the dividend AND/OR the price may rise back quite quickly - the specific price-performance of shares going XD is the subject of several websites. Suffice it to say that utility shares (high divs) are the most interesting in this respect. In relation to Boots, it closed at 630p on Tuesday 17/6/03 and at 609p (XD) on Wednesday 18/6/03 but was 637p a week later even though the FTSE index was lower.
porkpharm: I have no positions in BOOTs at the moment. I used to work for BOOTs and am surprised that they have managed to defend their market share for so long. Baker is making costs savings, but this is not going to keep the share price going up, that will need increased sales growth. Can Baker deliver increased sales growth? I think this is more than just about price, it is also about the way people shop. Boots has many small stores, some as small as 100m2, and for these stores they have high costs, for each you need a pharmacist( high wages) and then staff to serve at the counter, so a large % of the sales are going to be eaten up by costs. Also people now prefer one stop shopping, even the large Boots stores cannot provide this, whereas Tescos, Safeway can. I now buy all my toiletries from Sainsburys, only going to BooTs if I happen to be in the area. Boots's prescription business will keep a few old customers returning and buying their soaps and shampoo, but they are dying out. I think Bakers agressive price war, may reduce the chance of sales dropping off so quickly, but I don't see any long term sales growth,which is what the share price needs. Short term, I think the price is going to depend on the FTSE/DOW and other retailers. Recent peaks of around 7.20ish I think are the top, and I am tempted to open a short unless it advances from here soon. Has anyone got any more views from a technical viewpoint?
roblonduk: Denny, Thanks for the words of wisdom! I'm sure you're right that its dangerous to start with the premise of thinking one's right and the market is irrational-however by stating I'm confused by the logic surrounding these shares does not state I think I'm right, it clearly means I'm confused. I take Goliard's point that RNS did confirm the 1 m buyback at the same price of 5.36 as share, but why was it recorded as a sell on the main system..? I note the buy back at peak price, post the close. If one looks at the transfers which had taken place throughout the day you'll realise the buy order had been in all day and was simply being serviced. A further example again today is the proportion of Sells (65%) to Buys (35%) yet the share price goes up! Also, the fact that the buy programme on the 6 Feb records 2.7 m shares bought, yet on the 7 Feb after purchasing only another 235,000 shares the Company reports a total 18 million Buy back within this programme. That's completely illogical, despite whether I'm right or wrong. That's the confusion. As for going with the flow, well of course I am, I'm still in profit and waiting for this artificial increase to completely collapse once the market makers have taken this company for a total ride with its share buy back programme. I'm convinced that the MM's are holding a significant number of Sold shares (given recent ratios) aswell as institutional sellers in the wings as they are aware the Company is willing to pay a premium for them in order to maintain/increase its current share price. That's why the Sell/Buy ratio is high yet the price keeps increasing! Another more logical explanation would be greatly appreciated as we're all learning particularly in these markets- but respectfully, one slightly better than follow the flow! If I was a long term shareholder not shorting, I would be going mental at the price this Company is willing to pay to buy back its own shares..... But as we're all aware you only make money by taking risks and of course you have to be prepared to lose it...... It would be great if we could all be successful. Rob
