I sold out of ITV way back, actually posted on it at the time. However after I sold the share price kept falling and went as low as 53p which I thought was cheap as chips. Anyways I start buying again in the mid 50's and am now holding more than I had originally. I would like to say it was my shrewdness in selling but it was my need for funds at the time.

I hope to watch ITV grow it's share price, I am not in it hoping for a bid. IMO ITV is in the right place to be a serious player in the future. It is becoming more watched than I thought it ever could!

Anyone bashing the RNS today about Strike/Purplebricks - probably doesn't fully understand what is going on.

I find "ITV Adventures Invest" is an exciting addition to the ITV portfolio of assets.

Describing it simplistically - they are playing Dragon's Den - offering early stage companies advertising airtime in exchange for equity stakes.

The portfolio is already quite diverse (see link below for more details) and I am more than happy for ITV to inject more diversity into their future income.

They only have to get lucky and get a stake in the next Reggae Reggae Sauce or Ring Doorbell for this part of the business to hit the bigtime and be yet another 'down the sofa' asset not priced in (just like the Britbox stake was)...

I hope they keep it up and build a huge investment portfolio!

Is the ITV share price accurately valued by the market? Who knows? You pays your money and you takes your chance.
But in the event of a takeover bid (however unlikely) what kind of premium might it attract?
Relatively recent examples of how the market can on occasion be wildly out of step with underlying valuations - Hotel Chocolat sold for a 170% premium, Lord Ashcroft’s Impellam had a 155% mark-up, and logistics group Wincanton taken out for 104% more than its pre-bid price.
For those dismissive of a decent take-out price for ITV, careful for what you wish for if selling up possibly prematurely!
Might never happen, but if it does…

The ITV share price jumps as it posts record revenuesThe ITV share price has soared after the release of the company's full-year results. This Fool explains why he'd buy the stock today.

Div payment share price drop does not pay shorters. They must be thinking no support post div pay day (buybacks not bother them)

So maybe selling commencing, is a fear that ITV share price drop wont halt at the % yield mark

you know the price fall thingy.....

Does that mean we've reached max ITV share price for now...
Or is there some more short term (next five trading days)
rises to come...
It certainly looks like a rout with no comeback for
a couple of weeks....
But 50% of the time I'm wrong.

Yes Huckers i thought that too - no reason for the cherished "UK Broadcasting" bit to change hands - just spin off the ITV Studios division into a separate PLC - that is either part fully or part owned by ITV Group depending on whether a third party wants to own the whole thing and pay accordingly.

There has been years of ITV takeover speculation, but i suspect in the end game the whole company won't actually be part of a takeover. Just the bits that politicians can't complain about...

Just owning 51% of "ITV Studios PLC" would inject a billion or two into the "ITV Group PLC" pot, and leave them with overall control. Not impossible.


If ITV Studios valued at £1bn, 49% sale is £0.5bn divided by 4bn shares = +12.5p

If ITV Studios valued at £2bn, 49% sale is £1bn divided by 4bn shares = +25p

If ITV Studios valued at £3bn, 49% sale is £1.5bn divided by 4bn shares = +37.5p

If ITV Studios valued at £4bn, 49% sale is £2bn divided by 4bn shares = +50p

A nice cash boost, but still controlling Studios.

For full sale just double the +xxp to ITV.L, so £4bn sale adds 100p to ITV.L - but hey nobody wants to sell it all right?

Matthewr...your post on Slater's thread! a very long essay pointing out your belief that a share cannot be the subject of manipulation. Also, I have not said that ITV is being manipulated, just that yesterday's trade pattern was not normal. A huge trade done at 2pm or near was recorded after the bell recording the actual time and it didn't tally and according to my colleagues is odd and unusual. The trade was stuck at a time when the share price was 76.80p but was recorded after the bell at 77.80p...as it was for millions and it was a buy, where was it for two hours, in cyberspace?

There are several ways of manipulating share prices in the market. Deflating the price of a security can be achieved by placing a significantly large amount of small order at a price that is lower than the current market price of that share.

One of the ways of inflating the price of a security is by placing an equal number of buy and sell orders for the same security simultaneously, but by using different brokers. Thus, the orders cancel each other out.

As you have spent years working in the City, I will bow to your experience. But I would add that one of my colleagues works for a well known fund and he tells me that it is easy to manipulate the markets, it happens all the time!

The following is an imaginary conversation between myself and Johnnybig and Royston over their comments yesterday.
“Good afternoon gentlemen , I hope you’re well?”
Johhnybig & Royston : “we’re ok , what do you want?”
I want to talk to you about your comments yesterday that the share price is being manipulated (lower) by market makers and that they know a bid is coming and therefore GF is right. (Don’t worry , I won’t mention that he has said a bid is imminent for over two years).
J&R : “ok”
“Let’s start with the naughty MMs and the share price manipulation (you say). In order to do this we need to put to one side the dozens of compliance officers who sit on the trading floor , pouring over and signing off on every trade and position as they have done since 2009.That ok?”
J&R “ye.”
“So let’s say they are doing what you say they are. How do they do that?”
J&R “don’t know , but they are.”
“Ok , well there is only one way to suppress a share price in the face of rising demand (buy interest). And I think we are all in agreement of rising demand post trading update , buyback (albeit not this week) , UK rates to be cut etc.”
J&R “agreed.”;
“Well the only way to do it is to sit on the offer selling or hit the bid selling … ie you have to sell shares to suppress. So what you’re actually saying when you say the MMs are suppressing the shares is to go short.”
J&R “not sure.”
“Well you are. But also you’re saying that they know something , ie that a bid is coming. So first question to you both is why would the informed MMs be short in the face of a bid , wouldn’t they be long?”
J&R “errr.”
“No problem , let’s just keep going that they are managing the shares down and that they know a bid is coming. Let’s now go to the most important bit , the bid. What is the aim of a bid?”
J&R “to take control of the company.”
“Correct. Now , who sells?”
J&R: “people like us.”
“Incorrect really , as retail is so irrelevant. It’s the institutions who control these shares , people like Blackrock , Fidelity etc etc who manage everyone’s pensions. As I have said many times in the last two years , the share price is actually pretty irrelevant, but what is preeminent is the share price that the institutions are prepared to sell at. That , is everything.
J&R “ok”
“Next question. Would Blackrock prefer to sell at 100p or 150p?”
J&R : “150p obviously.”
“Correct. So which is more likely to result in a successful bid, a suppressed ITV at 78p or a true share price of say 100p?”
J&R “well they just want as higher price as they can get”
“Buyers have a fiduciary duty to their shareholders to not overpay in the same way as the Dame can’t sell too cheap. So Apple for example can’t bid 150p when the shares are 78p , but they might and can when it’s 100p.Meaning a bid is more likely to succeed the higher the share price , not the lower.
So to go back to your points from yesterday…. This is what you are actually saying …..that the MMs are holding the shares down and therefore getting short , even though they know there’s a bid coming & even though keep the share price down makes a bid less likely.” I think everyone can see that makes zero sense.

Look , everyone is entitled to their own opinion , I’m just trying to make you better informed with yours.
