nige co: Stan, I don't think that anyone would bid for ITV if the share price recovers to 200p. Unless ITV were in very good growth, this would have to result in BritBox being a success story, the jury is still out on that one. If no one bids at around the current share price 125p or as high as 150p, then it's unlikely to happen. I'm of the opinion regarding the recent ADR activity that someone in the USA is possibly stake building ITV and prepared to pay a higher premium to the UK price. Maybe it's someone who has already built a 4.99% UK holding and now building 14.99% USA stake without having to disclose their hand. This is the only explanation I can think of regarding the recent very high volume of shares traded in the ADR's.

jacko07: Nige...that's a good synopsis from 'simply wall st', mostly good with the cons being high debt. ITV is a cash generator and the debt level will be brought down fairly quickly as advertising returns to normal. When someone compares ITV with Netflix or Prime, I can't take it seriously.ITV at Mkt Cap $7 billion and the big boy streamers in the hundreds of billions. I know who is overvalued and it isn't ITV. I have been watching US markets and I can't get over the way they value some of their FAANG valuations, they are not real. How they can value these companies in the hundreds of billions is beyond comprehension. The same with Tesla and a host of other US companies, companies so overvalued by the market, it makes no logical sense. I am happy with ITV's paltry valuation, because the fundamentals are transparent and to me it is a value share. I look at the FAANGs and sorry but they all look like top heavy and teetering in bubble territory. I like to sleep at night. Just my opinion, we will see.

stockready: This stock is complete and utter waste of time and money Don't waste your time please. I can post you at least 5 different FTSE100 you can invest in and make lots of money longer term And ITV is not even in that list or even bottom of the long list ITV is a finished business and soon you will know why. The current CEO done FA to turn this around, she knows nothing and she had done nothing as a results which is well reflected on current share price. Put your money where you can make real money and add values ITV is not one of them I am sorry to be so blunt and I know lots of people don't like to hear this but it truly bothers me coming here and seeing people still think this stock will do anything at all and they put their money in this LARGE HOLE which is just sinking DYOR please But please honestly do a proper research to this and understand ITV is no longer money making media, competition like YOUTUBE, Netflix, and amazon together with COVID changed that forever, they are done and Finished, they go nowhere It is matter of time CEO must resign and go and that doesn't help them recover either, she was the worse thing ever happen to ITV, a total clueless who really destroyed what was remaining of ITV All the best, LOVE to say I hope you make loads of money here, but sadly I know this will not happen not even a slightest chance Really sorry to be blunt, but if this can even help ONE person I am more than happy to put my views out here despite perhaps many gets upset.

nige co: ITV valued at £5.2bn amid fresh speculation it has become a prized target for predators Takeover fever in the entertainment industry has sparked fresh speculation that UK broadcaster ITV could be snapped up. The FTSE 250 firm is seen as an attractive target because of its prized production arm and big television market share. It is valued at about £5.2billion. Analysts have previously suggested that number one shareholder Liberty Global could be a buyer. ITV has sought to wean itself off relying on advertising revenue by bolstering its production arm, which makes hit shows for customers such as the BBC and Netflix. And it entered the global video streaming market with its Britbox service, a venture with the BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5, focused on British TV and films. Neil Wilson, chief analyst at Markets, said: ‘ITV is a perennial favourite among those talking about which FTSE company might be next for a takeover. ‘The consolidation blitz in the US media space this week may have tongues wagging again. ‘The reason... is really all about long-term structural shifts in the TV and media space – by which we really mean cord cutting and the shift away from traditional scheduled TV to over-the-the top services like Netflix and Disney+. ‘ITV has bolstered its defences by weaning itself off cyclical ad spend, which took a hit during the pandemic and is bouncing back, by building a strong studios division making good quality content. That could be something that makes it appealing in this phase of content consolidation. ‘And ITV remains a prized UK asset, offering lucrative entry into the UK market for a foreign media owner. We saw the premium that Sky commanded. ITV is not at the level but one day a bid has to come in.’ Shares in ITV rose 2.1 per cent, or 2.65p, to 129.05p yesterday.
nige co: So will the potential consolidation in the media sector force the ITV acquirer's hand Ivan? The higher the ITV share price rises the more expensive the ITV takeover offer becomes. ADR's closed at $18.46 + $0.37 2.05%............ = 130.90p
nige co: "Perhaps foreign buyers are catching on to the bargains on offer in London? For me, ITV (LSE: ITV) is a FTSE 250 company that might fall to a bid, due to persistent weakness in the ITV share price." Https://
hades1: The costs involved far out weight 0.5 stamp duty. It makes no financial sense for an institution with access to the LSE. So it has to be someone else? - But read on. Look at the volume spike in May vs history on the above chart. Spikes have happened before but not in recent history and not of similar size. Not sure we will ever get an explanation although I found this on the the ITV Investor website “Unsponsored American Depositary Receipt (“ADR”) programmes ITV plc (“ITV” or the “Company”) has been informed that Morgan Stanley and Citigroup have established unsponsored American Depositary Receipt (“ADR”) programmes in respect of ITV ordinary shares. ITV does not support or encourage the creation of unsponsored ADR programmes in respect of its securities. The Company does not participate in the offer or sale of, nor the solicitation of offers to purchase, the securities issued in connection with these programmes, and is not a party to the ADR deposit agreements in connection with these programmes. ITV hereby disclaims any liability in respect of any unsponsored ADR programmes” If these purchases are unsponsored ADRs it would IMO add weight to the US predator theory. It seems to me like a neat way of accumulating a large position without the regulatory requirement to declare it. Expensive in the short term especially if you don’t eventually make a bid but very neat and could eventually be very cost effective. Notes that it’s Morgan Stanley and Citigroup that are behind this scheme not Goldman Sachs - That does makes a change. Clearly much of the above is speculation but the fact is that unauthorised ITV ADRs do exist. Whatever the truth behind the mysterious recent large ADR trading volumes let’s hope that ITV achieve JP Morgan’s new price target of 170p - with or without a bid!
