3 month high - but does not say very much . I am about £4 down . Can't see getting that back for a long time if at all. I must avoid Tech stocks...

EAN, half owned with Deutsch Telecom... They could snap this lot up easily.

European Aviation Network (EAN)is a purpose-built system for in-flight communications.Uptake of this service is ahead of projections. Looking to get EAN up and running in June. Should be very lucrative going forward. Good luck all.

Chancer, I wouldn’t hold your breath on ‘secret government contracts’. Incidentally what is EAN?

So the UK Government nurtures a business over many years and then floats the company at around the 275p level.Senior management make a killing on the floatation.The shares climb to over ten pounds but subsequently plummet on a variety of concerns.Management exacerbate their unpopularity by trying to pass remuneration resolutions that are voted down.The senior management are advised to go private disenfranchising their irritated institutional shareholders.I don't think that's going to happen in a month of Sundays.If an entrepreneur ( like an Alan Sugar who built up Amstrad)took a company private,fair enough.However,in a sense, a number of senior management here have been fortunate enough to be in situ when a quasi government body has been floated on the exchange and they have done a fairly mediocre job running the company since.They'll be no privatisation here.

The key words that are being used in the "know" do not favour Inmarsat hence the current high levels of continued short positions. No matter what is being said, it boils down to the readers digest version as follows: Struggling, loss of monopoly, 10 year low, complacent, old technology, high debt, overtaken by newer rivals, takeover rumours (but no offers) and Ligado future. These are not my words and although it is easy to cut and run at a loss, surely EAN could be a future positive and maybe more secretive Government contracts in the waiting. Who knows ?

The below is from Jan 2018. Inmarsat share price was 528p. Private equity funds must certainly have Inmarsat in their sights now. Just a matter of time before an offer comes imo RBC refreshed its longstanding theory that Inmarsat is a bid target with an argument that private equity funds could be interested. “Now could be the perfect time to take Inmarsat private,” the broker told clients. “Our leveraged buyout model suggests an internal rate of return of around 60 per cent on undemanding assumptions.” The buyout makes sense now because Inmarsat’s enterprise value is near a 10-year low versus earnings, which reflect an estimated $70m of start-up losses at its in-flight broadband business that will swing into a $44m profit after five years, so the exit should be highly profitable, RBC argued. Its team also highlighted a long history of private equity involvement in the satellite industry, whose high barriers to entry and strong cash generation appeals to buyout funds, as well as recent share purchases by Inmarsat management. RBC last year championed the idea that Inmarsat would be a good fit for Dish Network, the US pay-TV broadcaster, or its sister company EchoStar. The shares, which are down 25 per cent over the past 12 months, bounced 4.9 per cent to 528.8p.

Telegraph article today.Fairly damning.It concludes"Ultimately operators like Inmarsat may be picked up by international telecoms operators. There could be a long way to fall first."

Inmarsat (LON:ISAT)‘s stock had its “outperform221; rating reissued by analysts at Royal Bank of Canada in a research note issued to investors on Tuesday. They presently have a GBX 725 ($9.73) price objective on the stock. Royal Bank of Canada’s target price would indicate a potential upside of 100.78% from the stock’s current price.

seball falling on deaf ears I am afraid this new service from ISAT will remove the need for a bank of screens and receivers + transmitters from ships ,all they will need is a self contained unit from Inmarsat this is a game changer but only for us who use the kit every day isat have the best kit available on the market today and it just got even better .

That new purpose built building has brought them nothing but bad luck. About time they brought in a Feng shui practitioner. Please find the link to the interview in October 2015 to remind ourselves what Inmarsat is all about. hxxp://gcaptain.com/inmarsat-interview/

What about the debt Zpcaprd!? What’s the asset value then???? The only barrier to entry in this business is capital and duration of leases/contracts (which people are reluctant to talk about)

It's becoming an asset play now:Satellites: 3x Inmarsat 4x getting near end of life, 1x Alphasat, 4x Global Express3 or 4 ground stations1x S-band satellitePlus 50% of the S-band ground network, which might be worth 3bn on its own.Versus market cap: £1.6bnLet alone all the spectrum (ligado might yet come good) staff and recruitment costs, for a Elon Musk say....

Yes, being the first mover / having a monopoly always ends with another company coming along and ruining it. I mean, look at Facebook and Google. Oh, hold on.......

No one was praising the monopoly before hand? A duopoly won't impact things much... All the sailors carry an Iridium phone as back up anyway.By 2020 it will be a tiny part of the revenue, shame to see a cash cow go, but it's not really a big issue.

g2theary 22 May '18 - 09:28 - 3361 of 3364 I doubled down at 8:10 so not far from even again now... clearly an over reaction... I guess you did not take that opportunity to bank a profit on those ... so even weaker than 8.10?
