Also, total return to shareholders forecast 15-20%. Good divi yield. Free cash flow expected to be 1 billion in the next few years. 70% recurring business. Share buyback. Return of value of around 1 billion early next year is my prediction. The problem was indigestion with the HP purchase. Anyway, share price unduly hit. So I add on weakness going into a strong period for the markets... Roch

Well, I'm still buying here on any dips. Get price last week at 1320. Going way higher with a fair wind in the markets imo.

Bit stronger today. All we need is a return to a bit of normality in the market and we'll be back through 14 imo. As for the Elliott theory, they were not a major holder only 5%. For a ftse 100 you could buy or sell that amount on the day. No need for any manipulation. Of course the buyback was to improve the share price. Further return of value coming in the new year is my bet.

Now being really cynical..why was a buy back started when it was, yet no definitive statement as to a special divi? Possibly because the regular divi had recently totally failed to ignite the SP, and because Elliott flagged they wanted out and the board had to oblige to let them out with support, to avoid crushing the share price. Tactics to manipulate the price up in lieu of strong news. Nobody will really buying heavy here in this market as its not the bargain it was, and plenty of high quality high yeilding substitutes coming into view with 25% discounts.

Holding-up relatively well in the carnage. My break-out trade failed on timing and the break-out itself has now re-traced so we need some other catalyst than buy-backs for this one imv. (See some of you trading the range successfully). Catalysts? - SUSE transaction; now completed and what to do with the cash ("and/or returned to shareholders...")? - new Full Year ends 31 October so maybe a TU when announcing publication date of results. Probably no earlier than November/December. Most of my holdings have "corrected" to the 52 week ma (200d equivalent). MCRO's 52 week ma is currently 1680p in a downtrend. Is it relevant? Interesting imv. BTW MCRO's compound dividend growth rate over 5 and 10 years is 21.36% and 24.25% respectively.

You appear to often want a last word here recently to ramp this up. I guess you bought in on the recent momentum and are under water now, poor timing happens to us all. This will climb the stairs back up sooner or later, but unlikely to recover in the drastic fashion it was smashed. GL.

cxs1 You need to read the announcements. 'The net proceeds will be used in part to pay any tax arising from the Transaction and to repay a proportion of the existing Micro Focus Group debt. The remainder of the net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes and/or returned to Shareholders through whatever mechanism the Board may in its discretion determine at the relevant time' It's a good bet we'll see a shareholder return of value. Share buybacks, special divi of some kind. That's what mcro do. It's in their DNA. As for trading, it's been a day of trading from 9am this morning. Mainly up. Still 100 million left on the buyback programme. Roch

Nobody talking about collapse. Nobody talking about special dividends, yet. All speculative or wishful thinking. No point ramping it. Just trade it.

Price hit 1452 just a few days ago. A nice break to the upside from where I'm standing. A move to the 1980's in sight. Way oversold on the dip. US indexes historic highs just a few days ago. Unlikely to see a collapse from there, just a pullback. Still prefer buying the dips with mcro especially with the millions in buyback everyday and the 1 billion in special divi's coming. But we'll see...

The tradingview site is much better than the historic price charting here. Plenty of detail on the last 4 months for MCRO, multiple hits down in 11s long after the initial drop. We are still in the range now as the price has not yet broken out.

Yes, good buying opp this morning. A half decent day on the markets and we'll be back through 1400 in a flash. I don't believe this market meltdown stuff. Also, not sure where the 11 to 14 range comes from. Not been anywhere near that since the sell off.

Today I'm holding my long pot 30% and simply waiting to restock my trading pot 70%. The buyback has distorted the trading swings here over the last month or so, but I suspect until strong news comes, this will return to swinging 11 - 14. Unless the market all goes down the pan!

Selling into the rises is what causes the dips. It's all the same really. The question is what are you doing today buying or selling?

The trend here is we keep seeing the same dips! ;) By all means buy them, but defo worth selling into the rises too.

Nothing against trading if you can do it. Much easier when there's a trend though. I just bought on the big drop and have been buying the dips. Up 100% so far. Each to their own..
