cheshire man: It's Not really a Hard Call to Make that BT could Soon Ring Up a Rising Share Price By Malcolm Stacey | Monday 26 October 2020 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. Hello, Share Swingers. I tend to regard BT Group (BT.A) as one of my biggest ever losers. But it’s a misconception, as, at the beginning of this century, I made a lot of money buying and selling the shares. Things started to go wrong when BT’s big plans to invest in televising football probably turned out to be not such a good idea after all. Everyone who tries to make money out of online subscribers knows it’s a hard battle as, for some strange reason, most people expect internet services, however useful, to be free. I still hold a bucketful of BT shares and I expect better things of them now. Why? Because its pension problem is reducing as more former employees pass away. But also because reliable internet providers are becoming more essential. Homeworkers demand the best service going, and though BT costs more than its smaller rivals, I believe its customers, like me, get a premium service. For one thing, it’s modems (are they still called that?) are more powerful than most of its rivals. BT has been trying for years to persuade its customers to upgrade to its superior fibre service, after spending loads of dosh on digging roads up. And now with conventional internet slowing down due to much greater use, people are at last prepared to pay more for the faster system. BT is now focusing most of its activity on developing communications in this country. It needs a better deal from the government which desperately wants good internet (ie: fibre) to blanket Britain. Through its engineering arm Openreach, BT is moving fast to achieve this aim, and it deserves a bigger subsidy from Whitehall. BT shares took a big hit when the virus first struck. That doesn’t make sense with more people confined to home and using video communications to link up with people they can’t see in the flesh. The stock market is a perverse place, but eventually, the penny could drop and BT shares might shoot ahead.
peddlers: The thing is old sport, the release of bad news, e.g. an Ofcom investigation would likely see a stock plunge 10 - 30 %. BT share price didn’t drop much. It didn’t even make the previous low. And now the share price is starting to increase.What does that tell you ?
waldron: maxplus2 8 Oct '20 - 19:10 - 80 of 81 0 0 0 Https:// Good news for BT and Vodafone as TalkTalk bidder Toscafund makes £1bn bet that telecoms shares are undervalued. JIM ARMITAGE 21 hours ago The Evening Standard If you believe Martin Hughes at Toscafund, the sell-off in telecoms stocks this year is utterly overdone. Plenty of investors hope the man they call The Rottweiller is right. Since January, BT’s shares are down 41%, Vodafone’s are down 24% and TalkTalk nearly a third. Hughes knows about the latter all too well, being a 29% shareholder. So, the fact he’s prepared to deploy £1 billion to take it private is an obvious vote of confidence. Quite why he has such a rosy view is harder to gauge. TalkTalk has been offered around the market for ages, but none of its rivals bit. Remembered for its hacking scandal under Dido Harding (now presiding over Test and Trace), the self-styled “challenger telco” is a long-term struggler as a titch in a world of giants. More challenged than challenger. Customer service remains an issue and its most recent numbers showed revenues falling 7.5%, albeit in the thick of the covid lockdowns when engineers were unable to connect homes. Hughes’ case is that the share price is missing the long-term demand for high speed fibre, especially for work-from-homers. Charles Dunstone, founder and fellow 29% shareholder, takes a similar view but can see there’s no prospect of shares bouncing back anytime soon. That he’s even considering the offer, having rejected £400 million more from Tosca last year, is proof of that. Hughes is offering shares in TalkTalk after it’s taken private, so Dunstone can enjoy the upside if it bounces back. Whether minority shareholders agree this is a good deal is another matter. Analysts at Barclays - whose investment bankers are advising TalkTalk - put a share price target of 120p on the company. Can they be so wrong? Tosca, Dunstone and his sidekick David Ross own a collective 69% of the company. The Takeover Panel must make sure the rest of the investors get a voice.
esrjm22: When I see a share slide like BT for no apparent reasons given what we know about the company my immediate thoughts are manipulation off the share price.The share price should not be a Penny Share.The company has continued to work through the current Crisis and picked up more customers on the way and furloughed not a single person.I would say a takeover is imminent at the current valuation and I would think that the board are preparing for this.
essentialinvestor: COVID has little to do with the BT share price malaise. The share price has been falling for 5 years, from a 2015 peak near £5. As mentioned previously, BT unlikely to thrive under a Tory government for various reasons. And true to form, the Johnson government has already cost BT circa half a Billion with Huawei. Happen to agree with the Huawei policy change, but not that BT should foot the bill, particularly while in the middle of a huge CAPEX programme.
netcurtains: BTs historic PE ratio is now 5.7 That is a pretty good deal. Or put it another way, taking into account the different turnovers VOD has a share price/market cap double that of BT.A You could argue that BT.A having openreach should give BT.A the bigger share price (Taking into account different turnovers).
milliethedog: I don’t disagree net. Since good solid companies have decided/been forced to cancel dividends its been far less risky for them to short. If someone holds a short position in a company they are liable to pay the full dividend. Therefore, once dividends are reinstated in these companies most shorters will close as the risk is increased. This will then have a huge positive effect on the share price. HSBC as an example have always paid a very good dividend. They were forged to cancel their dividend in May by HM Gov. They reportedly did not want to do this and am hoping they will reinstate soon. Then, it will be interesting how the share price reacts to a possible 7% dividend... Good weekend all Millie
milliethedog: Can I just enquire if there are any chartists on this BT thread and what they think might be the future direction of the share price. For those who may be new to investing a chartist is someone who looks at the past performance of a share price in order to predict it’s performance. It is a very well regarded method trusted by serious investors the world over Thanks in advance Millie
milliethedog: hhh, I posted this on LSE BT forum last week. It details the swings in BT share price since end of July. Get it right & these % swings can be very profitable.... On 29/July the share price stood at 111p. 3 trading day's later it bottomed out at 97p (-15%) Over the following 7 trading day's it climbed, via 106p, to 111p on 12/Aug (+15%) Then all the way back down to 101p 21/Aug (-9%).....increased to 111p by 25/Aug (+9%) Back down to 99p 2/Sept (-10%)....increased to 105p (+6%) over next day or so Fell to 100p 7/Sept (-5%)....increased to 111p by 10/Sept (+11%) You might conclude from this that there is resistance at that 111p level; dropped from it 4 times during this time period. So am hoping, perhaps over the coming week, to be able to get back in at that 100/103 level if the trading range 100 - 111 continues.....or, perhaps a new, higher, range is forming. Either way I hope some of you find this information useful. GL all M
rathkum: Hargreaves Lansdown customers are buying BT shares. Here’s what I’d do Roland Head | Sunday, 13th September, 2020 | More on: BT-A BT Group (LSE: BT-A) has been a tough investment to love in recent years. BT’s share price has slid from a high of nearly 500p in 2015 to just 110p, at the time of writing. Things haven’t been this bad for the firm since 2009. But with a new management team and an improved strategy, I think the shares could be cheap. Investors at Hargreaves Lansdown seem to think so too. BT was one of the most heavily-bought stocks on the DIY investment platform last week. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit! According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air… And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential... I’ve been taking a fresh look at this telecoms giant. Is it time to get on board? Big spending, slow growth BT’s problem isn’t that it doesn’t make any money. It does. Last year, the group reported an operating profit margin of almost 14%, with free cash flow of just over £2bn. What worries investors are two different problems. The first is that BT has been shrinking for several years. The group’s sales have fallen each year since 2017. It’s very hard for a company to grow if its revenue is falling. The second problem faced by BT is that it spends a lot. Maintaining and upgrading the UK’s largest mobile and fixed line networks to provide 5G and fast broadband isn’t cheap. Capital expenditure is expected to be over £4bn this year. Falling sales and high levels of spending have lifted the group’s net debt to more than £18bn. I think this should be manageable, but I wouldn’t want to see this number climb much higher. However, if CEO Philip Jansen can return the business to growth, I think the shares could perform well from current levels. 3 reasons why BT shares look cheap BT’s growth prospects may be uncertain, but its shares do look cheap to me. I’ve chosen three popular measure of valuation to show why I think the stock’s valuation may now have hit the bottom. First up, BT shares currently trade on just five times next year’s forecast earnings. That certainly seems cheap. However, one concern with using price/earnings to value a share is that it doesn’t include a company’s debts. One alternative measure I often use that solves this problem is the ratio of enterprise value (market-cap plus net debt) to operating profit. My sums suggest BT’s forecast EV/operating profit ratio is around 10. That’s also an attractive valuation, in my view. Of course, we can’t ignore the elephant in the room. BT shares have always been bought by income investors, but the group’s dividend is currently suspended. Jansen has chosen to preserve cash this year to support his spending plans while limiting extra borrowing. Happily, BT is expected to pay a dividend next year. The firm’s guidance is for a payout of 7.7p per share. That would give a dividend yield of nearly 7% at current levels. Such a high yield also suggests to me this stock could be cheap. BT shares: buy, hold, or sell? Jansen faces a tough challenge returning BT to sustainable growth. But I’m impressed with his plans and commitment so far and think he could do well. At current levels, I believe BT shares are genuinely cheap and should deliver positive returns for shareholders. Patience may be needed, but at 110p, I rate BT as a buy.
