ayrshire1: Hi kenOne, I always check this board for any EOne news. I found a news item in variety magazine on the 26th March about a distribution deal which must be why the share price popped.... Entertainment One and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment have signed a multi-year, multi-territory distribution agreement.

masurenguy: mip 55 - 2554: I don't disagree with anything you said Masurengy but you are attempting to convert simple share price with a dilution factor which will not apply to every shareholder. That is absolutely correct mip55 and it is also what I actually stated in the last sentence of post #2553. "The subsequent and contemporary shareprice is only relevant in isolation to those who invested after the rights issue in 2015 because their initial valuation has not been impacted by it."

foxeye2: Masurenguy; Sorry, I obviously hit a nerve there with my post criticizing your assessment of ETO. I had no wish to cause you palpitations so please calm down and take it easy. 'It is very easy to make a claim without any attempt whatsoever to substantiate it when challenged.' you state in your post of 2550. I previously stated a simple FACT; The share price of ETO in early July 2015 was around 370p. The price at the close of business today (almost three years later) was 330p FACT. Today you have gone on to state ETO hit an all time high today. Rubbish. You are making yourself look really silly. Take your 500% profit (really???)and enjoy it No more from me. I spent my entire working life regularly dealing with idiotic people and I have no desire to do so now in retirement, so carry on believing what you will and Good Luck.

mip55: I don't disagree with anything you said Masurengy but you are attempting to convert simple share price with a dilution factor which will not apply to every shareholder. To keep things simple and straightforward the market as a whole must have a clear reference point with which to judge the overall performance of a share surely? If charts showing relative performance before / after dilution were freely available then perhaps we wouldn't be having this discussion?

masurenguy: I disagree mip55. What matters most is the profit or loss that you have made on your investment if you are an existing shareholder. The valuation of your investment will be initially determined by the price that you paid and subsequently impacted by any rights issues and/or dilutions. To have any relevance, historical price comparisons must take that into consideration. When the rights issue occurred in 2015 the average share price paid by the CPPB was reduced by circa 15% from 269p to 230p. The latter, not the former, is the price that they will use to determine their profit or loss when they finally dispose of their investment whenever this might occur in the future. The current equivalent to the shareprice that existed prior to the rights issue is the relevant factor to those that invested prior to that rights issue. The subsequent and contemporary shareprice is only relevant in isolation to those who invested after the rights issue in 2015 because their initial valuation has not been impacted by it.

mip55: Sorry but while I agree ETO is doing extremely well for us, to state that the share price is at an all time high is misleading ....as a simple glance at any financial providers five year chart will readily reveal. To attempt to factor in dilution is a red herring because the charts, whom any prospective investor will be consulting, do not show it.The fact remains that the share price was x pence five years ago and is x minus a little bit today. One hopes that we will erode the difference sometime in the near future and we CAN say that we are at an all time high!

1gw: To be fair through, there's some cyclicality on the film side of ETO isn't there? I would imagine there's a bit of a track-record premium in the ITV price as well. I like both stocks at the moment although much more heavily invested here right now. Near-term outlook for ETO share price probably quite dependent on the trading update that I would think should be due anyday now (with backstop of the AGM). Given the robust rejection of the ITV approach and the news posted here over the last few months I am expecting something of a barnstorming update - and I suspect I'm not alone in that. So if it turns out to be just a wishy-washy statement majoring on being on track to double the size of the business rather than a specific commentary on how well the current year is going and how strong the immediate outlook is, there may be a negative reaction.

raffles the gentleman thug: The consensus on this thread might be that a counter proposal is coming, but the ETO share price is telling you that shareholders don't have any confidence that this will be the case

raffles the gentleman thug: On the basis ITV have a mole somewhere leaking information on their intentions to the market on more than one occasion I think one just has to watch the ITV and ETO share prices like a hawk and they will tell you everything.
