BT may prove to be toughest call yet The tests are piling up for the government’s free marketeers: Advent’s £2.6 billion bid for defence outfit Ultra Electronics; Nvidia’s mooted $40 billion takeover of Arm; the £7 billion US ding-dong for Meggitt, the supplier of kit to the F35 and Typhoon fighter jets. But could there be a trickier test to come: a bid for BT, or at least a break-up offer for its broadband wing Openreach, so crucial to Boris Johnson’s “levelling up” and “digital” Britain agendas? The chances of some sort of action have risen since June’s wake-up call from Patrick Drahi, the French-Israeli billionaire behind private telecoms group Altice, who secretly snapped up a 12.1 per cent stake in an adroit coup. BT shares closed at 195.5p that day, subsequently topping £2. But Drahi can’t have missed them since dropping to 168.7p. Even there BT is a big bite, valued at £16.7 billion. And when he took his stake, Drahi said he held BT’s management “in high regard”, backed their strategy and did “not intend to make a takeover offer”. But that promise is only good for six months. And a man not spooked by debt-fuelled deals has form in wanting to own stuff outright. To boot, BT’s second biggest investor, Deutsche Telekom with 12.06 per cent, has been stirring things up. This month its boss Tim Höttges used an earnings call to declare Deutsche “a little bit kingmaker here”, while predicting an “exciting fourth quarter”. Deutsche has a board seat. But, tellingly, Drahi hasn’t asked for one. Is that to give him more room for manoeuvre come December, when new chairman Adam Crozier arrives and Drahi would be free to bid? True, it’s unclear whether he could raise the money. But Crozier’s first task looks to be establishing what BT’s two top investors are up to. And a lower BT share price doesn’t help. OK, it’s up 50 per cent from the bombed-out levels of a year ago, amid signs that investors are finally buying into the land-grab strategy of chief executive Philip Jansen: one built on a £5 billion-a-year spend to bring full fibre links to 25 million premises by December 2026 versus 5.2 million today. Share price wobbles must be expected, too, for such a capex-heavy rollout at a group with £17.8 billion net debts. Jefferies analyst Jerry Dellis attributed recent weakness to a “read across to the value of Openreach” from the latest “low” valuation of far smaller rival CityFibre. Extra competition from newly merged Virgin Media O2 won’t help either. But, on Numis forecasts, BT is now trading on an earnings multiple of 8.7 times. On the returning 7.7p dividend, the yield’s 4.6 per cent. So, not overly pricey for a group whose fibre rollout has political and regulatory support, even allowing for an £8 billion pension deficit that is looking more manageable lately. Yes, a full bid may be beyond Drahi. But you doubt he bought in to be a passive investor. Even a play for Openreach could prove an early test of the government’s new National Security and Investment Act. Https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/bt-may-prove-to-be-toughest-call-yet-x6r7jgsws

Maybe Alliance news is more accurate? Morrisons bidding war could boost grocer back into FTSE 100 index Tue, 24th Aug 2021 18:16 (Alliance News) -Â FTSE Russell late Tuesday indicated that, ahead of next week's quarterly UK index review, Wm Morrison Supermarkets PLC could re-join London's blue-chip FTSE 100 index. Based on data from Friday last week, FTSE Russell said that Morrisons - which has seen its share price surge in recent weeks amid a bidding war for the London-listed grocer - could re-enter the FTSE 100 just six months after March's demotion. However, with Morrisons last week accepting a GBP7.0 billion takeover offer from New-York based private equity firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice and rival suitor Fortress Investment Group LLC weighing up its position, the UK supermarket chain may not remain in the FTSE 100 long if promoted in next week's index review. Also poised for promotion to the UK flagship index are veterinary pharmaceutical business Dechra Pharmaceuticals PLC and aerospace components maker Meggitt PLC - which, like Morrisons, is also in the middle of a takeover bid. Meggitt last week said it continues to recommend Parker-Hannifin Corp's takeover offer over the approach of rival TransDigm Group Inc, which has until next month to decide if it will make a firm offer. The board of the Coventry, England-based firm continues to "recommend unanimously" Parker's 800 pence-per-share offer, worth about GBP6.3 billion. These three could be booting out broadcaster ITV PLC, engineer Weir Group PLC and food delivery firm Just Eat Takeaway.com NV from the FTSE 100. FTSE Russell noted: "The nationality of Just Eat Takeaway.com has been reviewed in accordance with the FTSE Nationality Rules and as a result, the company's nationality has been reassigned from the UK to the Netherlands, making the company ineligible for the FTSE UK Index Series." Indicative additions to the mid-cap FTSE 250 include Baltic Classifieds Group PLC, Bridgepoint Group PLC, Darktrace PLC, Draper Esprit PLC and Endeavour Mining PLC. In contrast to Just East, Endeavour's nationality has been reassigned from Canada to the UK, making the company eligible for inclusion in UK indices. Up for FTSE 250 deletion are Avon Protection PLC, Civitas Social Housing PLC, Tullow Oil PLC and Wickes Group PLC. The quarterly FTSE index review will use data from next Tuesday's close, with confirmed rebalance changes announced after the market close on Wednesday, September 1 - meaning the actual results of the review could differ from these indicative changes. The index changes are effective on Monday, September 20. By Lucy Heming;Â lucyheming@alliancenews.com

Not overly concerned either way but just a bit surprised given Weir Group have a market cap over 10% smaller? But maybe they are also out but no one has heard of them so it’s not reported?

Very true. Historically City Am have been a reliable news source but no mention of Weir Group is mystifying. Maybe the new slimmed down publication are now taking dubious news feeds. Let’s see what transpires.

Looks like I was wrong but given last few months not expecting much difference. But don’t understand why it wasn’t Weir Group as 10% smaller than ITV? https://www.cityam.com/just-eat-and-itv-set-to-be-booted-from-ftse-100-while-morrisons-and-meggitt-could-be-added/

Stan, that's funny that we are both invested in both ITV & BT also property? I guess that the big difference is that you trade Stan where I just buy and hold. I did top up in BT before the pandemic, just my luck. In hindsight I should have sold at least half of my shareholdings in both when the pandemic struck, then re purchase them. To be quite honest I didn't expect the collapse that followed in all the share prices.

nige ok understood, have to laugh, i have a fair chunk in buy to let, and hold only 3 shares currently, so i am just ever so slightly more diversified

Stan, majority of my cash is tied up in property. So I'm not in a position to top up right now. Hades, I'm only invested in two companies ITV & BT, both underwater at the moment. I wouldn't sell BT even if I was in profit. BT are my favourite investment out of the two. I will just sit on both companies, collect the dividends until both companies share prices recover, you never know both could receive takeover bids within the next 12 months.

A very good point - it’s not too late to just top slice something in profit and use the funds. IMHO

Stag, I had no spare funds at the time of the lows of 53p. All my cash was tied up in one thing or another. Yes a turnaround like ARM would be nice, and well done on that one, that will unlikely be beaten.

Nige...that is a heck of a stand in at 160p, these have been as low as 53p in the last 12 months, there is no better time to average than in a bombed out market. I know how you feel if you lost the opportunity by being strapped for funds, I have been there with ARM a few years back. If only ITV does an ARM holdings and it all comes good. ARM went from sub 100p and grew to £17 take out....the best share I ever got in to. Sadly I don't think I will ever see it again, but ITV at 250p is a pleasant thought and not beyond possibility.

Stag.. "IMO it will be sold closer to 250p." Stag, I intend playing the waiting game mate. My average price being 160p isn't great to say the least. I would be delighted if we were to receive a bid in the region of 170p. I remember 192p being said previously? I hope that you're proved right with your prediction of "closer to 250p" but I can't see it to be honest. Time will tell.

Nige...time and chance got in the way, the last 4 years have had a couple of major hurdles in the form of Brexit and Covid. I am happy to say that my average in ITV is 77p..... Brexit and Covid scuppered a million plans and one of them was ITV's organic growth. I have every hope that these things are now behind us. Stick with your holdings and if you can afford to average down before the share price takes off. The reason the share price is being manipulated, is to ensure ITV is bought out at a maximum of 192p. The figure 192p is the real value of the company at knock down, the lower the first bid will set out the stall should any others come along. IMO it will be sold closer to 250p.

GF.... "I have no doubt ITV are being lined up for a bid, so for all the doubters, you still have time to buy at these knock down prices, but for how long?" We live in hope mate. I've been waiting 4 years for for a bid, maybe we will get 2 at once? Lol

Jim as I said on the BT thread: some people must be hurting, but for me I've been mega long in M&S. The problem with the FTSE is, if one goes up something else has to fall. The FTSE has run out of money. The UK has run out of money. Its all gone into US bonker stocks.

There aren't many sellers of this stock, the trades are there for window dressing, just the main MM's playing around to keep it down. Looks like they failed to get it out of the FTSE 100 by a whisker. I have been buying on every dip so I ain't complaining. I have no doubt ITV are being lined up for a bid, so for all the doubters, you still have time to buy at these knock down prices, but for how long?
