montyhedge: Dime Yes bought yesterday, old posters on here know and if you look back I paid 635p sold at 2535p. Left alone for about 2 years. Now back in, Micro Focus have a legacy of profit warnings, they did before, then share price doubled following year. I'm think 4th Feb may not be has bad has every analyst think. Also one of the oldest hedgies, Dodge building up 17% stake, any bidder would really have to contact them. I'm looking for 168p eps. Who knows, but getting excited at this price, lol.
dime: Yes Pugugly, I was a little confused by that too as the last RNS re Dodge and Cox increased holding was 23 September 2019. That article is just highlighting that there is a significant stake building quietly going on in the background by Dodge and Cox not that they have recently increased the holding again. In fact The Times article had very little impact at all on the share price yesterday when it was published. The fact is that Dodge and Cox holding has now steadily climbed up to a significant 17.01% so I guess we must all take from that what we will!
pugugly: Dime - thanks - however most confused re no rns - Times article may well explain current share price spike.
fuji99: Kenmitch - I can give you another example of the opposite way: Negativity: Check out the trend of FEVR (FeverTree)- Its share price non-stop drop may be due to possible reduction/saturation in sales and profits (probably known behind the scenes). Regarding MCRO, there two possible anticipated news: 1/Renewed interest in a takeover bid as MCRO itself said it is interested to sell parts or the whole company and 2/ Possibility that the next trading update will show the rot has stopped and will maintain previous guidance with positive improvements. So are expecting 2 positive news that will propel the share price iminently as MCRO has in my opinion, finally reached the bottom.
kenmitch: Fuji. So each time the share price goes up you think it confirms “something positive is going on.” So what does a share price down day tell us please? Don’t most shares have up and down days? Can you share your evidence for concluding that a rising Microfocus share price confirms that “something positive is going on?”
rabbitfoot1: What just happened to Fitbit' shareholders is something to keep in mind: As MCRO's share price keeps hitting new lows the company is rapidly becoming an easier takeover target, and should this happen it would translate into tremendous value destruction for MCRO's shareholders even if the buyer were to pay a premium for the acquisition. Therefore I am too sure why the now defunct news of a takeover by OpenText were greeted so positively by the shareholders, we have nothing to gain from such a takeover.
umitw: Share price hovering around 10 pounds, will it break this level & go down further?It seems to be cheap at this price!
bigbertie: here is my guess at explanation. after profit warning the shares fell below 1100. during Sept MCRO bought back about 4m shares, but there was also a major buying spree by Dodge & Cox [US mutual Fund] who bought about 6m shares to take their stake to over 17%. My guess is that D&C buying is the cause of the share price rise and that they have stopped buying so the share price fell back to near the 1100 mark. I don't know for sure that D&C have stopped - there could be another RNS any day. But if they have, and if you thought the shares were good value at 1100 a few weeks ago then they are probably still good value now. just my thoughts - good luck
dynz: The share price stated for XP status shares is not the market price, it is the broker price. If you check the London Stock Exchange for MCRO at present you will see that the share price is £0.00 and MCRO has zero volume since 30/4/19. Once the consolidation concludes the market price will apply. The present broker day trader trades are of no value.
philms: MRThomas Company has announced that Return of Value will be between $4.33 and $4.39 per Ordinary Share and that they will announce US$/£ exchange rate for Return of Value by 7.00 a.m. on 26 April 2019. Let's assume the exchange rate is $1.3046:£1 (current rate) and Return of Value is the mid-point of the range at $4.36 per Ordinary Share. That will be £3.3420 per Ordinary Share ($4.36/$1.3046). For your 10 Ordinary Shares you get 10 * £3.3420 = £33.42 from the Return of Value. The Consolidation Factor is 0.8296 so you would get 10 * 0.8296 = 8.296 New Ordinary Shares, however, no fractional entitlements will be issued so you get 8 New Ordinary Shares. All of the fractional entitlements are aggregated together and sold in the market with the net sale proceeds being distributed to shareholders with fractional entitlements. A Return of Value of $4.36 per share would mean that there were 412,844,037 Ordinary Shares in issue at the B Share Record Date ($1,800m/$4.36) and assuming a share price of £19.4050 on that day then market cap would be £8,011,238,538. The Return of Value would be £1,379,724,772 (412,844,037 * £3.3420) so market cap should decrease by this amount to £6,631,513,766 and the shares in issue will also decrease to 342,495,413 New Ordinary Shares (412,844,037 * 0.8296) due to the Share Consolidation. Based on these numbers the share price for each New Ordinary Share should be £19.3623 (£6,631,513,766/342,495,413). Assuming the fractional entitlements are sold at this share price of £19.3623 then you'd get a cheque for £5.73 (£19.3623*0.296) for your fractional entitlement.
