Agree with that, McPartlin has had it, he went down the Barrymore route, whining that drink, drugs and depression are to blame. No mate, like many before, you believed you were a superstar and you ain't and never will be. People are sick of reading about this overrated Geordie. Paid millions for what, presenting TV programmes in the same mode as children's television. Ant and Dec are not a comedy double act, they are presenters! they can't sing, they can't dance, they can't act which puts them as not much more than those awful reality Z listers. Ant and Dec are not Morecambe and Wise, they are more Little and Large or Hale and Pace. ITV, you have got a new fresh CEO, now get some fresh talent! Get up to the Edinburgh and find the next Steve Coogan, Ricky Gervaise or Frank Skinner, they are out there.

Thank gawd they can save on his modest salary each year :-) I am sure that a good alternative will be available to replace the pair of them....

It will be interesting if they have the same revenue sharing agreements with advertisers / main sponsors.

Excellent article Phil.. I like the closing paragraph "All global versions of Love Island are produced by local offshoots of ITV’s in-house production company, meaning the broadcaster stands to make a substantial amount of money as it is rolled out around the world. Foreign editions of the programme are already massive ratings successes in Germany and Australia, and further versions are due to launch in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland." BOOM !

Interesting link-up involving ITV in NewTV has just been announced for video streaming on mobiles with high grade content only....lots of players involved, and precise role for ITV unclear, but they have committed to participate in a total $1 billion investment. It all kicks off early next year...so watch that space!

The media sector is in a period of rapid change, and share prices of many stars of today were fairly pedestrian only three to five years ago- e.g. Netflix, Sky plc (please see individual 6 year price charts). ITV is also in a state of transition, when clearly there is room for both pessimists and optimists. Selling by some stale bulls, is giving new investors an opportunity to enter as income investors, but with M&A possibilities thrown in for free. I believe that 3 of the US big investors, Liberty Global, Black Rock and one other, representing 23% of the ITV share capital have done sufficient due deligence to conclude that ITV’s future prospects are positive enough, to sink $2 billion of their money into a revaluation.

Yes but ITV has an advertising funded model now and forever.It is entirely dependent on the advertising market which in turn is entirely dependent on the UK Macro economic outlook.Look where ITVs profit (not revenue) comes from.

Thanks for your comments lauders and hades1. I appreciate that ITV share price has seen some very bad times in the past (a low price of 40p) but today its balance sheet is much stronger and income stream, a lot more diverse and better quality too. To take a rather extreme example, Netflix is currently valued at 10.5 times (F.T. dated 4th August) its annual sales. ITV’s non-advertising sales are around £1.6 Billion. So on just half Netflix valuation levels ITV’s valuation based on content alone, could be 5.25 x 1.6 = £8.4 billion ie a price of £ 2.10p a share, on a ultra gloomy assumption, that its advertising sales of £1.6 billion, are worthless. This big value gap is appreciated by three of ITV’s largest shareholders, who collectively own 23% or £1.5 billion, all three are U.S. based, where the value of content is most appreciated. We are in very good company.

ITV's valuable non advertising business is growing whilst it pays a dividend yield of 5% Recovery in advertising would be a bonus too and the Brexit factor may lift in the next year, reversing the series of negatives the share price faced through from 2015 onwards. An eventual re-rating or a bid is highly likely, I too am holding firm with ITV shares, the down side is limited the upside is considerable. Putting words into text where they don't belong there hades1, although I do note you also used the word "suggest" that perhaps covers you to some degree. I enboldened the relevant word which you changed to WILL. I agree it was an intelligent post by 1amb and that patience is the key. Sure there are no doubt better investments out there but I am fine sticking with this FTSE100 company that pays a decent dividend and where there is potential for M&A activity. I will still be here in September, October, November, December etc... unless something really unexpected happens by which time it MAY be too late anyway.

Intelligent post until you suggest advertising revenue will rise next year with Brexit ??? All forecasts I have seen are for a similar decline to 2008/9 with a 20%+ decline. Last time that happened the ITV share price dipped to c.40p. I believe that is why the share price will drift lower into 2019 But wait for Sept ITV if you like.

Patience is the key once you are convinced that ITV is undervalued. I had a similar experience with Shire (SHP.l) for several years as it moved from a peak of £57 in 2015 to a low a £29.85p - patience paid off as the price today after a bid in May 2018 is £44 and heading towards £50 by early 2019. The three year wait was worth it, even though Shire paid dividends of only 0.7%, ITV is undervalued in a sector where ratings are averaging 17 times earnings or more. Partly because there are many exhausted bulls who are running out of patience after a series of negatives over 3 years -the brexit vote and impact on advertising, change in CEO and CFO and presence of giants in the growth sector ITV is fighting for. But the three large institutions continue to hold on to 23% of its share capital. The principal front runner in bid speculation Liberty Global was quoted last year as saying. "If ITV was trading at a much lower multiple it might be interesting," he said. "Where it is trading today and the premium required, it is not interesting. …;” but it is clearly not giving up its 10% holding merely waiting for a better opportunity. ITV's valuable non advertising business is growing whilst it pays a dividend yield of 5% Recovery in advertising would be a bonus too and the Brexit factor may lift in the next year, reversing the series of negatives the share price faced through from 2015 onwards. An eventual re-rating or a bid is highly likely, I too am holding firm with ITV shares, the down side is limited the upside is considerable.

I for one have no intensions of selling ITV, I will hold for the Liberty bid. I don’t see a deal happening until the Vodafone and Liberty deal achieves regulatory clearance, this is expected by mid-2019. Once this deal goes through then Liberty will be in a cash strong position to make a move on ITV. If they don’t make a move then, they never will. I believe that they will try to manipulate the share price down through GS. I don’t see them wanting to pay no more than 220p per share. You know Malone he wants things giving.

It does look like a bit slingshot trading is going on in ITV shares. Goldman could be assisting Liberty in driving the price down before they start buying big time. Because of their huge purchasing power GS have the ability to drive prices down and then buy back into the stock at a low price. Who else will be involved. There will be those in the know if indeed it is happening and there is nothing illegal in it. Big players can get in cheap and ride that price up as others join the rally, and then pocket a hefty profit as a result. I hope it is happening, I am sick of holding ITV for the dream bid.
