careful: To serious long term investors the results will be important. A big test for the CEO who is under great pressure. Not only has he had to contend with the Italian problem , the share price has collapsed on his watch. His strategy will be outlined, and he will be tested. Hopefully he will be allowed to improve the pension deficit with some minor modification. Nov 2 will be judgement day for Gavin, and the share price action will be a judgement on his new strategy.
essentialinvestor: If he means a significant share price decline in anticipation of poor news is sometimes met with a price rise on the news, it can happen. Share price declines on bad news are usually the result of unexpected events, in BT's case the recent Italian accounting scandal, which was not expected in advance. In terms of referencing a specific future price as a buying level, that's just largely guesswork.
careful: The whole list of brokers target price is interesting. The average target price is well above the current share price. (I know, these target prices are often way out) The way markets operate these days, with high frequency algo traders accounting for a large % of the daily volume, share prices will be driven down to very low prices on momentum. Long term, fundamentals should matter. For BT's market cap to fall from about £50bn to todays £27bn seems ridiculous. That is a value destruction of £23bn. Agreed, the same algo trading probably drove BT higher on momentum than it deserved in the first place, but todays price gives good value.
toon1966: Just my opinion, of course you guys don't have your own? I can't remember the share price crashing when they announced the sports rights deals. Also don't forget Virgin pay BT/Sky to show their sports channels on Virgin's platform. The share price 'underperformance' has little to do with the cost of sports rights and all to do with accounting scandals, pension deficit, customer service, competition, regulation and profit warnings in it's public sector business. BTW BT's football coverage is excellent and I'm looking forward to the Ashes this winter, with or without Mr Stokes!!
careful: Talking about being in the know. Warren Buffett at the time of the Heinz takeover commented about the rise in the share price the week before it was announced. He reckoned at least 200 people must have known, lawyers, bankers, regulators and the deal negotiators themselves. ..and their wives, mistresses, boyfriends, family, friends etc etc. He thought the share price would usually pop about 2 weeks before.
andy84uk: if you are just going to sell the moment a share price hits your breakeven price, theres no point investing. All companies carry some kind of "baggage", its about whether you believe the current share price fully reflects the value of the company and whether there is potential for that value to increase. Not to mention theres a 10.55p dividend to be paid in the near future.
careful: the share price seems irrelevant in these markets. studying the staggering lows of some of the shares I own in recent times, 265p or lower is possible for BT. I try not to take any notice of share prices based upon past experience. Profit,cash flow, liabilities and prospects are what matter. Is this business performing so much worse that 2 years ago? Its share price has collapsed. Warren Buffett says ignore Mr.Market, it is fickle. Hold forever if you believe.
oakville: So, after many months of wrangling, BT Group (LSE: BT.A) and telecoms regulator Ofcom have finally agreed to make the company’s Openreach infrastructure division a legally separate business. Openreach builds and maintains the vast network of copper and fibre cables that run from telephone exchanges to millions of homes and businesses across the country. The new company, Openreach Limited, will have its own branding and won’t feature the BT logo. Greater independence It’s hoped that once the new agreement is implemented, Openreach will have greater independence under its own board of directors. The news will go some way to alleviating concerns from rivals such as Sky, TalkTalk and Vodafone, that they were operating in an unfair marketplace, with BT making decisions about Openreach to benefit its own retail business. So how will this affect the share price? Many believe that BT has dodged a bullet. The regulator could have forced the group to hive off Openreach completely, and investors should be pleased that a full separation has been avoided. BT has argued that a full break-up of the company would lead to additional disruption and higher costs. Recovery has begun So what now? Last month I argued against selling BT following the Italian accounting scandal and subsequent profit warning. The share price had collapsed, but I believed that the sell-off was overdone and it was worth hanging on for a long term recovery. With BT now trading almost 10% higher, I think that recovery has already begun. I’ve never really rated BT as an income stock, with its yield ranging between 2.8% and 3.2% over the last three years, but now I’ve changed my mind. The January profit warning and resulting share price collapse has bumped up the yield to 4.6%, rising to 5.6% by FY2019. Shareholder payouts have actually been rising steadily since 2009 and I expect this to continue. I believe that with an undemanding forward P/E ratio of 11.9, the share price should easily recover to £4 and beyond.
pacemaker1000: Rumours of a takeover bid responsible for today's rise!!?...."..... BT Group plc (LON:BT.A) share price has outperformed the wider market on Wednesday, climbing over a per cent higher. As recently as December of last year, BT.A was at its 2015 high of 499.80p per share. Today, at over 20% lower, share price sits around 397p at the time of writing. With share price so low, and the pound particularly weak, experts have begun to speculate over the potential for a takeover. While there has been no evidence to suggest that any companies are weighing up such an offer, there is no denying that BT is in a vulnerable position to such an approach. Needless to say, all it takes is rumour and speculation to drive share prices in either direction, and today’s whispers have seen BT surging on an otherwise difficult day for FTSE 100 companies. BT share price is still down by over 15% year-to-date, underperforming its rivals Vodafone (+6.5%) and TalkTalk (2%). However, BT has outperformed rivals Sky who find themselves down 23% YTD on the stock market. A heated argument is continuing over BT’s Openreach division, with rivals refusing to accept the outcome of the Ofcom report released last month. Regardless of how they might feel, and whatever campaign they may run, for the time being Openreach remains a part of the BT Group. Last year, Openreach brought in 40% of EBITDA.
pacemaker1000: I thought this was sorted!!.............. BT Group plc(LON:BT.A) share price fell lower in early trading on Monday morning, continuing a difficult period for the telecoms Giant. Like the benchmark index BT.A fell from Monday to Wednesday, before recovering on Thursday and Friday, however the losses outweighed the gains. Throughout last week share price fell 3% in a highly volatile few days of trading, underperforming the footsie by the same figure. Share price for the group is down around 16% year-to-date, as compared with a 6% rise for the FTSE 100. One of BT’s most successful and most expensive areas of business has been the rise of BT Sport. The group invested huge sums into expensive TV rights, and is looking for ways to utilise this monopoly to benefit other areas of business. Reports emerged this week suggesting that BT will offer EE mobile subscribers free access to BT Sport, in a move designed to bolster the newly purchased mobile operator and increase the exposure of BT Sport. EE customers will receive a six-month free trial of BT Sport channels, which offers the likes of premier league and champions league football, before being offered a cut-price subscription to keep using the service. The move aims to challenge rivals Sky, whilst also adding to the service offered by EE. In an ongoing battle over the Openreach monopoly, BT’s rivals are continuing to pressure regulator Ofcom into separating the Openreach network unit from BT. The latest twist in the story comes as Sky are looking to put further pressure on Ofcom. BT had suggested that the pensions of around 300,000 staff would be at risk should the unit be separated. However, the Times has reported that law firm Sackers has said that there are many ways in which the retirement plans of those 300,000 would be unaffected. Ofcom is set to release a new report on BT and the Openreach unit later this month to decide whether it will invoke its right to split the two. The outcome will likely affect business and share price.
