sbb1x: Still waiting for what happening on the 28th June... share price up 3.5p since your post..
researchcentre123: Looks like Morgan Stanley are really buying in again - up to 7.8% now. Last time they bought double that amount and the share price went up 50 or 60% so let's see what happens. I guess the share is trading at under half net asset value so I would imagine that that is what interests them - their questions at the online shareholders meeting a while back were about asset values.
researchcentre123: I think 1 pound is high, but currently the share price is still low. The net asset value is put in by professional valuers who are on the hook if if it's far out. They valued at 82p share.That is after hugely depreciating all the properties in the last return. The company is awash with cash with highly rated bonds, has first rate new management who both own large chunks of shares and are largely compensated on the basis of share performance. The current valuations are close to the last fire-sale they made which implies they are accurate, so give both a significant margin of safety and some large potential upside. Currently the scrip dividend is about 13%- you can see with a decent pe ratio the share price could have a very decent uplift
flyfisher: With regard to the rns on M.S. position. It shows that they have 7.65% in shares Another holding that is out on loan to a short of about 0.3% And their residual position is by equity swaps, these are a swap between an index price and hmso price, with M.S. being entitled to the HMSO appreciation against the index. It would seem that M.S. have enough physical stock to sell to the shorts and have leveraged into that position with equity swaps. As i previously commented i think M.S have set a trap and executed it well so far. The length of the equity swaps is interesting as M.S. have so far been in no rush to take a quick profit.
trcml: My initial thinking to JPM having accumulated 10%+ was that a bid would be forthcoming as HMSO's market cap is insignificant in the context of the potential upside in NAV. (Important to remember that NAV is the product of valuation opinion: untested in not actually offering the assets for sale and in the prevailing market erring very much on the side of caution. Upon reflection, I am wondering if by JPM having gone on a buying spree and upped the share price for everyone else, their strategy is to short their holdings and as the share price falls back make money that way. What they may not have allowed for are the 'new shares' obviously designed to save HMSO having to part with cash dividends. I bought yesterday for a potential trade but have now sold at a tiny loss after costs. If my wonder is correct then I would buy in again in the hope of latching onto JPM's strategy.
smithie6: "Research" I think the answer to your question was in my explanation post anyone with short position will lose 2p calculated as shares, scrip divi shares while the share price will reduce by about 2p if "everyone" takes the scrip divi. (many PIs won't since their broker might not offer that process or might have a high admin. cost) the share price might reduce by less than 2p (since max. poss. no. of scrip shares won't be issued) while the shorter has to provide 2p equivalent in shares, so shorters will imo see a small loss due the scrip divi process but not dominant, tiny versus the recent weeks' % increases in the share price
smithie6: redoctober5 uf have you looked it up using google ? "scrip dividend" to get a good free full explanation ----- (basically can get new shares. if a co. decides to give 1 new share for every 100 you have then if you have 5000 shares you get 50 new shares added) (if a co. gave "everyone" say 10% new shares, & no cash divi option, then the share price would fall about 10%. & the total value of the shares is.....the same ! hmso divi offer gives offer of some new shares or cash....with a very big difference in value, if you take the cash you get shafted !) ------- scrips, divs & shorts shares to be shorted are normally borrowed from someone , call him 'Fred', to a financial/broking/trading house & then Joe Bloggs sells some of those shares, that he doesnt have but the finance house does. & say 3 months later, Joe Bloggs then gives an order to the finance house to buy them back. The finance house then put the profit or loss in the account of Joe Bloggs. I think we all grasp that part. The shares were sold by the finance house, so someone bought them. They must receive the legal divi for the shares they bought & hold. The finance house wld imo take that from the account of Joe Bloggs, be it cash or shares. the divi might be cash or it might be shares, a scrip share divi. .....if the shorters of hmso shares, = Joe Bloggs in my example, have to provide new shares to whoever bought the shares from his sale of shares he/they won't like it imo since they have to provide it. note that the share price is likely/sure to fall with the scrip divi, this produces a benefit to shorters, that compensates them in part for providing scrip shares to the holder of the shares they sold that's my view anyway
millennialinvestor: Like most people - I want to make as much money as possible in as little time as possible. That means having to do a lot of day trading on some high risk volatile shares. This has worked on CINE and BOO however the one I haven't made a profit on overall is HMSO. I feel there is light at the end of the tunnel for HMSO, and it's share price is well below what it should be given the circumstances. So I am using some of the profit I have made in the past few months which I can afford to lose if the worst was to happen. I've got £2k invested in hmso at the moment however I have got the option to double down if needed. Will be sitting on it indefinitely
typo56: 1hughb, flagging a trade as a 'buy' or 'sell' is always a bit questionable, because of course there are always both sides to a trade. They are simply a judgment as to which party was the aggressive participant (in the case of SETS, the passive participant is the person who places the order on the book, waiting to be hit, the aggressive participant is the person who hits an order on the book). The 18.5m trade in HMSO at close yesterday was the auction uncrossing. This is the aggregated volume of all the buy and sell orders on the SETS book that could be filled at the uncrossing price. It's therefore not really meaningful to label it as a buy or a sell. There are always large trades at close on the last day before an index move, (e.g. ITV and DGOC yesterday). I think the point of trading in Friday's closing auction is there's good liquidity and it ensures tracking of the index, whatever the price traded. The HMSO/HMON index move has been complicated by the extreme 24x rights issue. In terms of HMSO shares it was very large (about 12% of HMSO shares in issue). However, I think this can be explained by the unwinding of the HMSO/HMON arbitrage that has been going on by traders and probably funds too. 12% in HMSO equates to an arbitrage of just 0.5% in HMON. I've seen mention of 15% shorts in HMSO. This is only 0.6% of the enlarged share capital and therefore I don't see it as being very significant. Some of it could be due to an arbitrage in HMON longs.
typo56: Yes Robertinvestor, for every HMSO share you owned at close on 9th September you now own 1 x HMSO 24 x HMON (the nil paid rights shares) The nil paid rights shares give you the option to convert to fully paid HMSO shares, by payment of 15p per share. Because this is a discount to the HMSO share price it means the HMON shares (which are tradable) have some value. In theory that value should be the HMSO price minus 15p. In effect, about 90% of the value of the HMSO shares you held at close on 9th September is now in the HMON shares. You could sell HMON rather than take up the rights. However, the fact that HMON currently trades 16p-17p below HMSO makes this unattractive and if you want to obtain a better return you have to consider getting a bit sophisticated and look at shorting HMSO instead.
