wendsworth: Arees1969: share price has seen a strong upward turn since BT went ex-div on 30/12/21. Over that period it has risen from 167 to 188 i.e. an increase of 21% over 16 trading days. I share your view that there will doubtless have been some profit taking. I've taken some. However BT's share price will be impacted in the short term if as is distinctly possible the Ukraine situation gets ugly. Close market watchers are telling me any form of incursion resulting in hostilities between Russia and Ukraine 'will cause heavy losses for global stock markets'. It is noted that the DOW was trading at 34,800 when the FTSE closed last Friday but finished at 34,265 with after hours indicating a further fall. If there is a war between Ukraine and Russia then I see an overall fall of some 10% in the markets generally. In such circumstances BT will not be immune. It would also assist Mario D to hoover up a few more 'cheap shares'. netcurtains : The indications are that , in the short term, you won't be 'bored' !

ariane: thanks Nige BT Share Price Forecast For 2022. More Upside? Crispus NyagaShares Jan 04, 2022, 07:48 GMT The BT share price had a relatively difficult year in 2021 even as the FTSE 100 index did well. The stock ended the year at 169.55p, which was about 16.5% below the highest level in 2021. Still, this price was about 17% above where it started the year. BT Group had a number of key events in 2021. The company had a good performance partly because of the 5G auction that happened in March. In general, the company – together with Vodafone – benefited because the amount was less than what analysts were expecting. The company also gained a new biggest investor. Patrick Drahi, the French billionaire owner of Altice, bought a 12% stake in the company in the second quarter. He then added funds to own a stake worth more than 18%. BT Group also continued its rollout of 5G business while its Openreach segment continued doing well. Most importantly, the company managed to restart its dividend in November after recording strong results. The firm will start paying dividends in February this year. The key mover for the BT share price will likely be the speculation that the company will be a takeover target. Besides, the amount of interest by foreign buyers has jumped substantially in the past few years. Still, potential bidders are concerned about getting the bid approved and the massive pension fund. BT share price forecast The daily chart shows that the BT share price has been in a bullish trend in the past few weeks. The stock has managed to move above the 25-day and 50-day exponential moving averages (EMA). The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has also moved slightly below the overbought level. It is along the first resistance level of the standard pivot point. Therefore, the BT stock price will likely keep rising as bulls attempt to retest the 2021 high at 203p. On the flip side, a drop below 155p will invalidate this view.

grupo guitarlumber: BT prepares for battle as Altice increases stake by Harry Baldock, Total Telecom Tuesday 14 December 21 Billionaire Patrick Drahi’s Altice UK has announced today that it will increase its stake in BT from 12.1% to 18%, renewing takeover fears Back in June, Patrick Drahi, the billionaire owner of Altice Group, announced that he had formed Altice UK, with the new company taking a 12.1% stake in BT for £2 billion. At the time, this move caused a wave of uncertainty for BT’s leadership, who feared that Drahi would launch a takeover bid for the company, something that Drahi himself denied interest in. As per the law, Drahi would not be allowed to increase his stake in the company for the next six months, giving BT plenty of time to shore up its defences and the media time to speculate about Drahi’s true intentions. Drahi would be allowed to increase his stake from December 11th. In October, BT hired advisory firm Robey Warshaw LLP to work alongside Goldman Sachs to help them prepare for any potential takeover bid. By November, rumours were circulating that Drahi did, in fact, want a bigger part of BT, with sources suggesting that BT’s low share price could further entice him to make a play for the company. Now, just three days after the December 11 deadline, it seems that Drahi will indeed increase his stake in BT, boosting it from 12.1% to 18%. Once again, Drahi has emphasised that he does not intend to launch a takeover, saying he was “fully supportive of their [BT’s management’s] strategy, principally to play the pivotal role in delivering the expansion of access to a full fibre broadband network”. The UK government, meanwhile, says they are “monitoring the situation carefully”, with analysts suggesting that their support for Drahi and any increased stake in BT will likely rest on how the move will impact the rollout of full fibre across the country. Nonetheless, the government emphasised their willingness to intervene if any deal was viewed as detrimental to the national interest, saying it “will not hesitate to act if required to protect our critical national telecoms infrastructure”;. The investment comes at an interesting time for BT. While the company’s share price has been relatively stagnant for a number of years now, the company has typically failed to find potential suitors as a result of numerous factors, ranging from the impact of Brexit to BT’s complex relationship with Ofcom. More recently, however, some of these factors have begun to be resolved, most notably Ofcom granting Openreach additional certainty over their fibre investments, allowing the company to advance its £15 billion rollout plans. This may be a key factor in Drahi choosing to invest this year. What impact would a takeover of BT have on the UK government’s goals to create a gigabit Britain?

careful: We can just own our shares long term and look away. The share prices have lost touch with reality. Look at Apple. A great company but $3 trillion.? You must be kidding. Smartphones are old technology now, many others have it. Those fat margins will collapse. As for BT, I am holding for the long term. Share price will be all over the place..but it is meaningless. BT vs Bitcoin or Tesla....no contest.

grupo guitarlumber: FWIW TAKE FROM IT WHAT YOU WILL Https://www.fool.co.uk/2021/12/09/3-reasons-the-bt-share-price-can-keep-rising/ 3 reasons the BT share price can keep rising Rupert Hargreaves | Thursday, 9th December, 2021 The BT (LSE: BT.A) share price has been on a bumpy ride this year. After dropping to a low of around 120p at the beginning of February, the stock rallied above 200p in mid-July. The shares then plunged in value, falling to a low of 135p. Since then, the BT share price has been pushing higher. It is currently trading around 173p after recovering from most of the losses in the third quarter. Overall, over the past 12 months, shares in the telecommunications giant have jumped around 25%. However, I think there are three reasons why the stock can continue rising over the next few weeks and into 2022. BT share price: takeover potential The first reason I think the stock can continue rising is the bubbling takeover talk surrounding the business. Ever since French telecoms billionaire Patrick Drahi bought a 12% stake in BT over the summer, speculation has been swirling in the city that he will make a full offer for the company. In reality, I think it is unlikely such an offer will emerge. BT is a sprawling giant with a multi-billion pound pension deficit. Untangling the enterprise and managing these pension assets would be a hugely complicated process. These challenges are likely to put off buyers. What’s more, it is highly likely the government will interfere in any deal due to the national importance of the company and its influence over the UK’s communications network. Having said that, speculation of a potential acquisition could be enough to continue to push the stock higher. Drahi’s interest supports the idea that BT looks cheap. Considering his success as an investor, other market participants may want to ride his coattails and buy the stock. Reorganisation potential As well as takeover speculation, investors may continue to buy BT as the corporation pushes ahead with its restructuring plans. This year, the group has undergone somewhat of a significant transformation. It is spending more money on its core telecoms business, focusing mainly on improving fibre connectivity around the country. At the same time, management has been trying to restructure non-core divisions, including the group’s pay-TV business. This has been a drain on the company for several years. BT’s pay-TV arm, which includes BT Sport, initially set out to capture a large share of this market by offering consumers an all-in-one package. Customers can bundle pay-TV, broadband and phone packages together in a straightforward package. Unfortunately, the division never lived up to management’s lofty expectations. Moreover, BT Sport became entangled in an arms race with Sky over sporting rights. The price these competitors were willing to pay to gain exclusive streaming rights for sporting events skyrocketed, and their returns plunged as a result. BT is now trying to untangle this business. It has agreed on a £600m deal with streaming company DAZN to co-operate on a streaming sports business. There is also speculation that Discovery, the US media group which owns Eurosport, is in talks with BT about a joint venture for its sports businesses. This initiative will allow the company to spend more time focusing on its core business model. It could also reduce losses and improve the offer for customers. Overall, I think the reorganisation of this business model will help improve the organisation’s sales and profitability. This is likely to lead to a higher share price when the benefits start to show through on the company’s bottom line. The undervalued BT share price The third and final reason why I believe the BT share price can continue to climb is the fact that the stock currently looks undervalued. Before the pandemic and the launch of the company’s new growth initiatives, the group was struggling. Net profit slumped from £2.5bn in 2016 to £2.2bn for 2019. Income has fallen further since, with the company reporting a net profit of £1.5bn for its 2021 financial year. This is expected to be the low point for the enterprise. Thanks to the company’s focus on customer service and network expansion, sales and profits are recovering, albeit at a relatively slow pace. According to the City, net income will hit £1.8bn for the company’s current financial year, rising to £2bn in fiscal 2023. Based on these projections, the stock is currently trading at a 2023 price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 8.5. This suggests the corporation is deeply undervalued at current levels. Historically, the BT share price has commanded a P/E of around 11, indicating the stock could have significant upside as the group continues to push ahead with its restructuring and growth plans. I think a profit recovery will be the catalyst that causes the market to take another look at the business. The company’s dividend is also returning this year. For the current financial year, analysts have pencilled in a dividend per share of 7.5p, giving a yield of 4.4% on the current stock price. This level of income is incredibly attractive for income investors in the current interest rate environment. Bumpy road ahead However, I do not believe it will be plain sailing for the group from here on out. The company faces a range of challenges. These include fighting off competition to meeting regulators’ demands for increased broadband connectivity across the UK. The group also has a lot of debt on its balance sheet. The cost of this debt could increase substantially if interest rates rise, which would impact overall profitability and hold back growth. And finally, the company has a multi-billion pound pension deficit. Management will have to find the cash to fill this gap. Still, despite these risks and challenges, I would be happy to buy to stock for my portfolio today, considering its growth potential and current valuation. Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

clive7878: I noticed BT was up to £2.00 from £1.45. Never pays to chase the share price upwards, cause it generally falls back. They are linked to Vodafone in what they do but Vodafone is yielding 7% but prospects are said to be only so, so. BT gain income on loyal customers who stay with the company and good service. I believe the share price will stay in a small range. but it is like Lloyds Bank a solid stock.

essentialinvestor: Looked at buying a small amount pre statement and just could not click the buy button, mentioned it might be a personal example of the fear and loathing stage. Results were not that great, however the share price was carried up to around 2.07 a few months ago, so sentiment swings (without much else) can be powderful forces on the BT share price. My own take is BT may need to be part of a larger group to thrive and there is scope for corporate action with 2 large shareholders controlling nearly 25% of the company. Keep in mind there is political risk and Paul Dacre may be the next Ofcom chair.

sea7: Despite what is arguably a disappointing dividend, the analysts argued in an August note to clients that the BT share price pullback had gone on for too long. Their target for the BT share price is 260p, implying a 62.2% upside from its 20 September closing price. hTTps://www.cmcmarkets.com/en-gb/news-and-analysis/whats-dragging-down-the-bt-share-price-amid-its-5g-rollout
