After my great bit of luck - I freely admit it - being short over 'the' weekend, I have left this alone, scarcely even looked at it. But the reason for the crash that Monday still holds. This will be a colossal rights issue and it will need to be discounted. That the price should have got back virtually to the pre-announcement level shows the market's current irrational exuberance.

Lets hope Lansdowne gets kick up the backside. As the trend has been upwards for the past few weeks & all the shouting shorters have come unstuck,long may it be.

topvest - I don't really understamd your point. If they are offering a supposed "discount" it is to existing shareholders. If an existing shareholder takes up the issue at ANY price then the result is that their shareholding remains as the same proportion it was before the issue. Regardless of the price of the issue the company ends up with the required funds to buy the target company. The only thing that may have changed is the amount of dividend as a proportion of cash invested, but with a supposed "discount" this ought to be a plus as long as the same percentage dividend is paid out. The only real issue is whether the total amount being paid for the target makes it earnings-enhancing or not.

They will be very lucky to get it away for that price in my opinion. Lets say it's £4. They are selling PRU which has a book value of £6 for a 33% discount to book value, to buy a fully valued asset. If another company bid even £6 for PRU they would be told that price ridiculously undervalues the company.

Yes, the key question is at what price? Bound to be dilutive, with such a big issue.

It's a classic "right deal, wrong price"; Buffet would have a field day lambasting this deal, if he were a holder. Doing a rights issue on undervalued PRU stock to buy a highly priced asset is a total nonsense and a classic empire build for a board with ambitions to expand their empire. PRU stock will be irreversibly damaged if this goes through, so why do it?

The whole market is hugely bullish today witheld, something I confess leaves me totally baffled. I've left this alone since my good fortune of going short the Friday before the announcement, but now I might even take another short. This is insanity.

Anyone know Why this is rising all of a sudden, when it's only moved a few pence up/down each day in the last few weeks?

I have contacted Prudential their shareholders website concerning RightIssue, spoke to a gentleman regarding the time they would be offered & he said that it would be towards the end of April, share holders would receive a document of at least 100 pages. He said it was a very complicated issue hence the time delay. He could not say what price the shares would be. Is that any use to you?
