Cable risen by 100bps. But that's not going to stay. Yes, with the quoted NAV we have a 1.3% discount. 2.6p time-value on the S shares is a give-away with 73 days to go... ...against the NAV it's -3.4p !!!

Nice push back up to 478 today. Looks set to carry on to new highs after a spell of consolidation - just like it did after 3 months between July and September.

Can you remind me how the warrants work? I hold 500 warrants from some time ago as well as 3500 of the ords; I can't understand why I hels them originally unless they came with my initial purchase. TIA.

Yep. 5.8% is AAPL too. Take a look at PCTS (Subscription shares = Warrants that convert at 478p and expire on 28 March 2014). The premium is almost nothing (actually 3.6%) and the gearing is 37 times!!!!!

Melody; 4 weeks for a reply!! You have probably given up. Yes your understanding is spot on. The sub price (PCTS) - Today: buy @ 19.9, sell @ 17.6 is at a premium to the underlying. At first exsise on 3/12, 401 + 20 - 371(offer on PCT today) = 50p or a 13.5% premium. If one just wanted to have the underlying shares they would buy those, it would make no sense to do otherwise. However people are willing to pay 20p today for the subs, even though they would be paying 13.5% extra if they were just after the underlying shares, because:- 1, they would get geared exposure to price movments of PCT of 18.5 : 1 (ie all things being equel a 10% (37p) rise in PCT would generate a 185% rise in PCTS (also 37p). They could then sell for big profits if they wish - people will pay alot for that chance. and:- 2: if a buyer wants PCT shares today they can get exposure for 1/18.5 of the cost and pay the rest next march. It works both ways of course, if, say PCT rise by 8% or less by 3/12 the subs will expire worthless. For what it is worth I think PTCS is good value now for a high risk punt on a general market revival and tech companies at the forfront. But very much a punt. As ever please do your own reserch and no advice intended. L. These 2 threads are informative:- http://www.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=8764319 http://www.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=1171493

I've got a few PCTS subscription shares. can someone confirm my understanding pls. It seems to me that these shares give me the option to buy the ordinary PCT shares at 401p in March 12 (or 478p in March 14.) Obviously if PCT is below 401p in March 12, there is no point in doing this. So the value of these subscription shares is a reflection on the likely price of PCT in the future. At 20p today, I could sell them now which would make sense if I believed PCT would be below 421p in mar 12 , or below 498p by Mar 14. Is that right?
