Takeover by stealth. Cheeky
Just out of interest.... hTTps://
Https:// Report in the Sunday Times today - refers to Newport Wafer Fab of course and not IQE
Lord, you just think you are better than others, you really are not. You flip between total negativity and oh I have a lot of shares. Yoh troll others with negative abusive comments and you think people listen to you, they dont. I have made errors in my investment decisions, like everyone, and have decided that the company management are not stepping up so have decided the next 12 months will be a right off or negative. I have already made 12% on moving, with IQE up 3%. The only short term hope with current BOD is a takeover, which may happen, but what will definitely happen is that you will keep thinking you are better than others. Nobody cares what you think. Sweenoid and Monty and some others show you by your true colours. While you troll and blah on a out others, watch the CWR share price and think what run along
And of course you would know the future clever Dave. Last time I sold all my IQE it went from 51p and I bought back at 22-30p. I am happy with my investment decisions and still expect IQE to do well once they get rid of the BOD, but I'm jot waiting until then and will have a lot of money from my new shares to decide what to do in 6monhs. Currently the only big rise will come from a takeover and if that happens I guess I am not so Savvy, but just as much chance of big Tech sell off or more inept BOD announcements that could take this much lower. But Dave, you know best...
They have to be very vulnerable to a hostile takeover at the moment. Take 100p and move on to a company capable of creating value.
IQE has been and continues to be a real dog of a share, however it is not without it's potential catalysts to get the share price moving. These include appointment of a dynamic CEO A move to the main market Takeover gossip and of course the most important, strong growth in earnings. It is not unreasonable to expect that some or all of these will happen this year. For these reasons I continue to hold.
Finding any old CEO not difficult, finding the right one is no easy task, could take til Sept imo. But agree talk of takeover is unlikely.
I feel that the IQE board is a pretty weak one overall! As has been suggested by a number of posters here I think the best outcome for shareholders would be a takeover. The problem is,where's the value to a predator?
paraone - if the Chinese invade / takeover Taiwan, the SC technology, or anything related to IQE capacity, or anything related to IQE period, will be the least of (y)our worries.
the only way for iqe sp to increase is through a takeover. the current ceo does want let go of his baby, keeping the company at these levels suits him fine. Himself and the BOD get a guaranteed salary and reward themselves bonuses at the expense of suffering shareholders.
Now we know why TRowe have been selling down their stake and why there was no runup in the SP leading up to the results, when all the signs were bullish. I expect TRowe to continue to sell down below 10percent. The company is vulnerable to a takeover at current levels without a CEO and if it’s not Lite, then I expect them to get involved to guarantee their supply
Post 34431 Being tee'd up for a reverse takeover by NWF. An extremely LTH
Crosswires: I think that Drew moving on is a big change; one that makes takeover possible.
Yes more patience required. At least the company is debt free and with a stronger balance sheet. New CEO may transform the commercial side of the business and possible move to main market or takeover so lots of potential positive catalysts ahead.
llol, you're not being unfair at all. The current lack of accountability will not generate a hunger to bang down the doors of potential customers. Having been long for some 15 plus years I was always fearful of a takeover as the latent potential seemed so clear, I'm questioning my rational and would consider a bid as an opportunity.
Yes Xylos, I think you are right about expectations. IQE is price as a growth company and needs to deliver SIGNIFICANT growth. It may well do so but the name of this thread says it all. IQE's time has come 2017 and beyond. We are all fed up of waiting for that growth. The good thing though is that there are always investors, both private and institutional, who are new to IQE and will look at the statement about the 5G super cycle just starting and be quite happy to pay a premium price for that growth. Personally, I would be quite happy to see a takeover now at anything north of 100p.
Coherent takeover - what was the result?
Either way, getting the SP moving will be priority #1 for the new CEO, else a takeover is all but inevitable. Simply too much growth and opportunity in sensing and 5G for this company not to fall into someone’s cross-hairs.
tomduck - agreed, though it's not really a case of whether IQE would entertain a bid IMHO. More whether a predator would - and whether the majority of major IQE shareholders would then pressurise management to accept it. Also as I've said previously, why bid now when there've been MULTIPLE opportunities over the past year to snap up IQE at a fraction of today's price? Personally I don't buy this takeover theory right now, though I could be proved wrong.
Tomduck what a presentation? More like a suicide note no wonder it went down to 20 p. They may have the technology lead, but they lack economy of scale. The current management are get as technology leads but they do not have the flare nor capacity to expand the company any further. The company deserves and needs Real Leadership to take it forward expand it globally. I believe that if they carry on this way they are good enough as a takeover target.
Agreed Aphro, but the other factor has to be the prospect of a bid at some stage. Consolidation is ripe in the sector and U.S valuation are so high that they have great buying power. With the prospects of the $ weakening a bid may come sooner rather than later. CEO announcement, results, outlook, momentum and being a takeover candidate are compelling reasons for staying long even though some may say this is expensive if you just look at the historic P.E. I am long GB Group which continues to power ahead even though it is on a P.E of 90 so a high P.E. is not always a red flag. A low P.E. can be though.
Lord, yes sorry I did note forward PE, Ian referring to looking at the share price 2 years back at 180p and for those thinking it will climb rinse and repeat downwards are not really looking at the facts (not at all referencing your own views, just generic comment to board). As others have also pointed, the semi conductor market is hot as you like and vcsel are the new toy in the toy shop. I also have a real knowledge of storage, having worked 15years at EMC, and the new storage using IQE tech is going to surprise a lot of people in how fast it becomes major revenue for those companies involved..I concur and agree with Monty comments about worrying a takeover at £1 was possible when price was 40p. Now at least (imho) any takeover would be 250p+ Still not interested as think in 3years this will be more than double that... highly bullish views, Good Reasons!!
That all sounds excellent, will make it post breakfast listening ðŸ‘￾ Takeover could be exciting but a sale for £1b might not excite the guys who have a long term view of a multi billion MC.
