Yes always happens. Let’s hope we recover something tomorrow? Only Vodafone in my portfolio held up on 175m traded. No idea what’s going on there but wish ITV had the same strength! Perhaps Ivan might know if it’s GS or maybe it’s just the 6% plus dividend yield that’s protected them? US markets recovering nicely but UK just couldn’t make it back! Praying for bounce here tomorrow - This time yesterday everything looked so good back above 120p!!!

Once again the FTSE100 index goes down 1.5%, ITV goes down 4.15%. I expect that ITV will underperform the index but 4% is ridiculous.

ivanwho are you trolling this time with your brexit remarks, hades?why cant you just address a poster instead of your continual carping, the points made to you have been reasonable and all the more so since you try to talk in riddles half the timei cannot tell you how much it amuses me that you tripped yourself up recently by breaking your not unreasonable theories to that point into multiple mutually exclusive conspiracies, that you have been unable to back up in the slightest

jackoi have said the same, there is no comparison in the product either, similar price, people always going to prefer disney to the prisoner...but you should remember britbox costs itv even with a good number of subscribers and no doubt churn is already underway £800k per week...

Yep Stan, but always remember that Britbox was not launched as opposition to the main streamers, it's an extra that actually gained subscribers in the last 12 months while the rest lost subscribers. Might say something when people keep putting ITV up against the likes of Netflix, Disney and the rest. ITV market Cap is a lowly $6 billion while the others are super valued at $150-$200 billion or more Mkt Caps, a bit like comparing an apple to an orchard.

You know John Malone, he never overpays on any deal, he would want ITV on the cheap. I believe that the BOD at ITV are attempting to make themselves more attractive with the reduction of debt, which can only be a good thing for shareholders. I also think if ITV were to take Ch4 they would want it on the cheap.

Nothing new under the sun!I believe Christopher Bland looked at a possible merger back in 2003 after Carlton and Granada merged to form ITV.Christopher Bland was ex LWT and chairman of BT at the time.But todays trend is to de-merge Broadcast from Cable/Telephone operations. Eg AT&T / WBros are de-merging after a merging the companies back in 2018 - they are now merging Warner Bros (HBO etc) with John Malone's Discovery Communications.

LG would not want the tie-up because I mentioned it first about 6 months ago. They would look stupid if they took my advice. A rookie.

That was my first thoughts Hades, this would force their hand I think, I don't think that LG would want a tie-up of ITV & BT. There is a reason behind LG still holding on to their 9.9% ITV shareholding. I may be wrong but LG may only want ITV to stop others getting hold of them.

That would get Liberty Global's attention!I really doubt the BT Consumer and ITV merger would fly but it would move LG to prevent it - IMHO

Mention of ITV.... BT should be broken up - just not the way its billionaire raider may want Https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2021/08/18/bt-should-broken-just-not-way-billionaire-raider-may-want/ New chairman Adam Crozier should consider a blockbuster merger of its consumer wing with ITV. BT shareholders beware: Adam Crozier has fallen for the dubious charms of an enigmatic foreign guru at least once before. As chief executive of the Football Association from 2000 to 2002, here we have the man who first brought Sven-Goran Eriksson into the English game and rhapsodised on his “absolute belief” in the pricey Swede even after he had launched into his extraordinary streak of tabloid indiscretions. Now Crozier is chairman of the board at Britain’s former state telephone monopoly as it is drawn into the orbit of its own exotic suitor, the billionaire Patrick Drahi. He is owner of a 12pc stake in BT and, it is widely assumed, has strong views about its strategy that will gain weight when he buys more shares. After too much chin-stroking under his predecessor Jan du Plessis, Crozier and the BT board do not have much time to set out a path that protects the interests of all shareholders. There are also customers, pensioners, workers, taxpayers, the emergency services and the general public to consider. All are dependent on BT and may not share the priorities of a French telecoms investor who is a tax resident in Switzerland and best known for aggressive cost-cutting, heavy borrowing against assets and taking advantage in the financial restructuring that it demands. Nevertheless, perhaps Drahi’s ongoing and energetic efforts in the political background to allay such fears will succeed. There is at least one other big BT investor who would dearly love the newcomer to buy more shares. Tim Höttges, the chief executive of Deutsche Telekom, substantially detonated any reputation he had as an international deal maker when in 2015 he accepted a 12pc stake in BT in exchange for half of the mobile operator EE. At the time of deal it was worth £5.1bn. By this time last year, as BT reached one of its periodic nadirs after various accounting scandals and regulatory disasters, Höttges would have been fortunate to get £1.3bn for the shares. Little wonder that after a slight recovery he is thrilled at the prospect of offloading to Drahi later this year when a regulatory lock-up is lifted. “I think we will see an exciting quarter four with regard to this shareholding,” Höttges told investors last week. The excitement threshold may be low in the German telecoms market, but he sounded sincere. It all means that if Crozier and Jansen do not take charge of BT’s destiny, others will certainly try. The good news for them is that despite its weak share price, BT is in many important ways better positioned than it has been for years. It is finally upgrading its broadband network to faster and more reliable fibre, at pace. It will be cheaper to run and more profitable. Meanwhile BT has just struck a new deal with pension trustees that signalled the vast funding deficit may be going into permanent retreat. Formerly dismal customer service is improving markedly. It has the best mobile network. Its CPI-linked price rises insulate it from inflation. Openreach, the broadband infrastructure, will remain an unmatchable monopoly in swathes of the country. True, real growth is hard to come by and so BT is not as highly valued as, say, the plumbing specialist Ferguson. Drahi’s solution to this, many in the City speculate, will be to demand a spin-off of Openreach. It is claimed this would allow it to attract the sort of frothy valuation that has prompted dozens of fibre broadband challengers to set up with little more than a PowerPoint presentation. There are several problems with this idea, however, chief among them the endless complications of the BT pension scheme. Here’s a better one. Crozier should instead consider a spin-off of BT’s consumer business, and merge it with his former employer ITV. Such a break-up would avoid any problems with the pension scheme or security services, which take a close interest in BT. Openreach would anyway become a “cleaner” asset for the stock market to value more generously. Separately, by escaping an organisation that retains plenty of Post Office DNA, BT’s consumer business would be free to innovate faster in digital services. For ITV a merger would deliver a solid leg-up in streaming and subscriptions, a future for which it has proved ill-equipped. Note that such a deal would not be an example of the discredited wheeze of telecoms network owners getting into TV. It would be something new built not on infrastructure ownership but customer relationships. BT’s consumer business is already in talks with ITV over a partnership in sport that may offer a proving ground. This may not be the only solution to the Drahi question but it is the sort of radicalism that is required from the BT board and its new chairman. BT is likely to be in the market for a new finance director in the not-too-distant future to replace Simon Lowth, who joined back in 2016. Few in the City would bet against Ian Griffiths, who performed the role alongside Crozier at ITV. He wouldn’t be hard to find. Griffiths is currently counting the beans at marketing data company Kantar, which is chaired by … Adam Crozier. It’s a small world. From November, Kantar’s chief executive will be Philip Jansen’s brother Chris.

Agreed Stan, I am not too worried regarding BT, I think that the share price will recover to at least 300p, my price target. I'm more concerned about ITV. After 4 years of investing in ITV, I'm losing confidence in the management. I'm determined not to take a loss, so I will just sit on them and collect the dividends. I hope that I'm proved wrong and we do receive a takeover bid, but if someone was going to bid I think that it would have happened by now. I hope that Ivan is proved right, but after waiting 4 years for the bid that has never happened?

Stan, I don't know what connection if any that Crozier had with any off book trades, doubtful I would have thought. I must admit I thought that the large USA ADR's volume a few months ago was a sign of something brewing, but since Matthew who seems to know his stuff cleared that one up. I think that Goldman did have a hold of ITV when it held 25%. 9.9% on behalf of LG. Now I'm not too sure what to think regarding GS. I live in hope of a bid, I'm starting to think that a bid is the only way that the share price will ever recover to a respectable 160p - 170p.

Stag6, I'm glad I'm not the only one who can see what's going on here. You just have to look back to 6th April when GS issued a 'reduce' recommendation on ITV from 135p target price to 118p. Since then the order book has been inundated with '2000' share trades, its obviously an ALGO to keep an 'orderly' market as it were without letting the stock get ahead of itself. Have a look at the trades today and tomorrow and keep a look out for those ALGO '2000' share trades !!! When will this come to halt, well as Blackrock topped up with 20m shares last week, maybe its pretty soon perhaps ??

This market in ITV shares is like watching paint dry, marketmakers shuffling teeny trades up to a tad off 120p. Up she goes in dribbles capturing any orders close to their cap, then down in what is an obvious false market. They must have control of a huge piece of ITV by now. When will the action start.
