LOL it must be so painful experience every single thing i say about this materializing in front of you, whilst at the same time trying to hold up your increasingly thin vial as inf expert and general know all. Ken yet again so convenient that all of a sudden you don't want to talk about the share price, strange because looking back on this thread you have never ever had this stance before? Indeed you have only been too happy to tell anyone that would listen about the share price. Your not only a sore loser Ken your deluded and out of touch so much its painful. You can say what you like in your personal delusions,my posts and predictions hold water, i have given you 5 weeks notice that this was going to 150p despite your pathetic belittling comments about that target on this thread.(when apparently you did not have a ban ob talking about the share price) Well i know who's laughing the loudest Ken. Your increasing looking more foolish by the post. 450p or 150p ? in shareholders to reject the offer? LOL Well at leat the greedy selfserving scum on the board are happy. I have moved my short target down to 100p.

The question about the real meaning of the UBS note. You are obviously better at interpreting them than me.(see the end of my post 228). As you acknowledge that this is being shorted, it must be one of the most pointless exercises going, to both predict when it will stop and at what price. The one thing that is guaranteed with shorters is that, at some point, they stop and go away to pick on another one. At what price they decide to do this, to me, is irrelevant and only relevant to short term dealers. That is why I am not interested in the short term movement. If you want to mention the share price every day - fine- it's a free country and there may be other people interested as well. I am not one of them.

mw8156 I agree, with the benefit of hindsight, that either bid is currently preferable to the current share price. Informa has gone down more or less with the media sector. The main differences between INF and many others in the sector are 1) INF has little exposure to advertising and 2) it has more debt than many. The first is obviously a plus and the second is a potential worry and one that 25cent quite rightly deems a factor. I happen to think that the debt will be managed and that their results will not fall off a cliff. Time will tell. The business/conference side will be the side that does fall - it is a question of how far and to what extent they can mitigate it. We don't have too long to wait until the next update. 25cent - it is only the 2 personas that you introduced per my posting 219. Perhaps you could explain to me the true meaning of the UBS downgrade. When they tell their clients that they should buy INF with a £5 target, presumably they are lying to their clients and really mean what ?

25cent No I didn't. What I said was I thought that the price should be north of the indicative bid in 18 months time. The indicative bid was just something around 620p at that time - 2 years ago. I then said that a bid around £7 would be needed to get shareholder approval and the price should be north of the indicative price (around 620p)within 18 months. As it turns out, I was wrong and the world has changed rather dramatically in the 18 months. I don't feel at all embarrassed at that because nobody else saw this coming at the time either, including you. I have checked the UBS downgrade and it is from 550p to 500p. They retain their buy rating. Perhaps you should have told the full story rather than trying to imply that UBS were agreeing with you. You were also (otherwise you wouldn't have taken the punt) valuing this at over £4 4 weeks ago. It is very easy to be very clever with the benefit of hindsight.Let's see what happens over the next 18 months. I will still be around to comment on news about INF, I just don't see the point of endlessly talking about short term movements in the share price. We could both end up being right. It may go down to 150p in the short term if the market gets really bad. And it may recover well at the end of my 18 month period. Don't forget that there is another pre-close trading statement next month, their $ earnings have received a 25% boost in the exchange rate and the next 3 months is a massively positive cash flow period as the advance subscription payments come in for 2009. Until then i don't think there is much to say and certainly not in the tone that you like to adopt. Perhaps, when there is real news, we could have a RATIONAL discussion.

LOL rather convenient Ken, just one last question did you not give a £7 prediction for 2008 18 months ago ,would you care to comment on that or is that now erased from your memory?

The UBS downgrade I saw yesterday was down to £5 - is this a new one ? Anyway, as I said, for me, I am not interested in the short term and you are so there is no point in continuing this. Speak to you again in 2010.

It was a line in the Telegraph, why should i question rumor and say so from a newspaper ? To me it was worthless and baseless. The very same newspaper told us the next day across its front page that Regal petroleum was getting taken over by BP at £3 per share, yeh exactly! The unmoving fact is Ken is that it is actual FACT that shareholders were not consulted about accepting the bid. If you accept this then you maybe will be at the start of your recovery from delusion. Meanwhile.... Once it breaks down below the last low of a few weeks back , the slump should be swift to 150p. This share is ill, UBS downgrade today. The ftse has recovered 700 points and this has totally ignored the rally just hanging around waiting for the next 12 point ftse fall to drop another 5%. Ken i note that your reproductions of my previous posts missed quite a few out, you know all the ones about my predictions about this falling ? I wonder why? £7 is as likely as you admitting your hopelessly out of touch on Inf Ken.

I didn't edit anything - I just reproduced someone else's post (Post 122 from Liquidkid - why don't you check it yourself) I didn't even know at the time where he had got it from - therefore no editing by me at all. The point is you responded to it at the time without challenging the fact that shareholders had been consulted - as you have endlessly challenged it recently.

"I have stated that I think it will take 18 months to recover, so any further comment on day by day movement, for me, is irrelevant." Hold on a minute you said that in 2006? is this rolling 18 months prediction again Ken? i am confused? Lol that's convenient Ken i suppose that's how in your mind you discount the pain of seeing exactly what i predicted happening in front of you. Gosh i don't think he liked that post of yours Rugby LOL meanwhile guess what INF is yet again doing exactly as i predicted. Great work ken But the worlds not listening to you. But they seem to be listening to my 150p prediction. What i find really amazing about you Ken is that you are exactly what you spend your whole time trying to prove i am. Look at your posts they are full of personal attacks rudeness and lies? Ken get a grip its just a bulletin board relax Kenny baby you will bust a pile or something ranting like that. (pity about the grammar) tell us another one Ken! BTW Ken the actual newspaper story is as follows (we all know that this means its fact don't we) Peter Rigby, chief executive of Informa, said the offer, which was tabled yesterday morning, was promptly rejected following soundings from larger shareholders. Mr Rigby said: "The business going forward is well positioned to grow and deliver value to shareholders." I dint see any mention of Standard Life or Fidelity or any other shareholder do you Ken, did er you add that bit by any chance Ken LOL ?????????? Ken i wonder why you felt the need to edit the above newspaper story when you posted it in your dull rant above? Just why did you add your own bits to that story and then somehow try and pass them off as not only part of a official RNS but also what Peter Rigby said. You have reached a new low!

Hello again snake,against their better judgment they act so spiteful and petty, they wont have anyone have a bad word against their dear baby INF,that's the whole crux of this. Meanwhile yet again it does exactly as i said it would do, but HUSH ,they never mention that bit do they. ref post 216, same old pulp over and over again, tell me Ken about this £7 price prediction how soon will it come? I will tell you about £1.50 huge debts, falling sales, shrinking margins and just how soon now is!

Check this gem out 25cent, Kens been at it for years on this thread, read this below,does it remind you of his recent posts on this thread? ;-) I make that 18month prediction about now? kenmill - 4 Nov'06 - 15:46 - 32 of 215 I don't think the premium was high enough.With the company firing on all cylinders, the share price should be north of the indicative bid price within 18 months. Institutions in INF are long term holders and I think a price nearer £7 would be necessary to convince them to bail out now. ================================================== As for ken not claiming to have lost any cash,well well well what have we here then? kenmill - 18 Mar'08 - 17:24 - 74 of 216 I bought some more yesterday at 289/290. I don't think they would let the academic side go on its own as it leaves the rest too exposed to a downturn. The main attraction of the larger group is its blend of exposure. Whoops a daisy

Yes SURE you did ken LOL Ken yet again i will break it down to the simplest form just for you. Inf was going up (recovering) 4-10p per day on say 100 point ftse250 market up day when it was falling 20-30p on the same point falls on the way down. Get it ken? do you understand yet Kenny baby?

25cent Your post said "Indeed, although it certainly is not recovering at the rate it fell, well not yet anyhow." Assuming "it" refers to the INF share price, that implies that you are comparing the recovery rate with the rate it fell because that is EXACTLY what your post says. You do not mention the market at all. The "recovery" has to be from the bottom to the point you made the comment -what else can it be? Regardless of this, it is still pretty irrelevant per my post 205 so this is the last time I shall post on this subject.
