Most interesting comment to date, Alanrex! Yes, that would explain why it hasn't gone down further. Anyone having a crack at this needs to make sure to have plenty of margin for the unforeseen.

Interesting comment on FT markets live that if the share falls a lot, there is a possibility of a takeover approach for PRU ala Natwest/Legal & General and then Bank of Scotland. Also the opportunity for an asian giant to overtake talks with AIA... Would all be interesting...

Can't help but feel that there will be massive dilution in share price, if the deal does proceed !

PRU board are playing a very smart game here...doing an acquisition and raising money whilst the share price has outperformed...just like the western boom and bust cycles when the Far East bubble do burst likes of HSBC, STAN and now PRU will suffer big time...

> mercury123 - 2 Mar'10 - 11:31 - 892 of 893 Falling knife springs to mind. Having done numerous rights issues, l would be careful. If you do want to dip, buy in blocks but that's your choice.

Guys, looks like PRU is being sold rather than shorted. Saying that, the position might be different in a few weeks time. NH someone was asking about the short interest in Pru NH it was tiny before the deal was announced NH according to DataExplorers it was around 1.3% of the shares outstanding NH and available to be loaned NH so not massive

I think most on this board are shorting from all the negative comment. Personally i think this is the time to dip a toe in the water - when everyone else is fleeing for the hills. But we'll soon see what happens once the dust settles. The other insurers are now all looking very interesting

If you guys are right about this then the board should be fired to a man

Look at HSBC and XTA, both FTSE100 shares and both plummeted substantially. Saying that, both recovered very nicely as well post R.I. Nothing to say the same won't happen to PRU, and this is a bigger rights issue, which exceeds the market cap as well. From prior experiences of rights issues, if you're holding, l would sell and buy back after the rights issue. Dr DarkStar - 2 Mar'10 - 10:38 - 887 of 889 G2 .. can you seriously think that the PRU board would enter into this deal based on destruction of shareholder value of that order?
