Read the article in today's Telegraph about a suplus of oil in storage and begin to worry. I sold out on Roc today because the take-over rumour is being over done. And anyway if you see a profit take it, can always buy back in.

With the large volume of stock traded in Oz I would say that is where the rumour has come from and as the company have stated they have not heard anything I would guess that it could have been accidentally leaked from the company interested who have yet to contact ROC imo dyor.

key part to the previous post is imo.... ------------------ ALI MOORE: Well, the energy sector was up 5 per cent across the board and Roc Oil up 21 per cent? CHARLIE AITKEN: Roc Oil's coming off a low base, but there is a takeover rumour there, which is quite believable, actually. I mean, actually looks a very cheap stock. But the energy sector is trying to do better. The oil looks like it clearly bottomed. Oil looks like it wants to go back to $60, $65 a barrel, and energy stocks led by Woodside today, really, did very nicely.

http://www.abc.net.au/lateline/business/items/200905/s2560741.htm Interview with Charlie Aitken Print Email Australian Broadcasting Corporation Broadcast: 04/05/2009 Reporter: Ali Moore Lateline Business speaks with Charlie Aitken from Southern Cross Equities over investor reaction to Macquarie's capital raising. Transcript ALI MOORE: For more on investor reaction to Macquarie's capital raising and the rest of the day on the markets, I spoke earlier to Charlie Aitken at Southern Cross Equities. Charlie Aitken, it was a very impressive start to the week. Why such optimism? CHARLIE AITKEN: Well, the market started very strongly. I don't know if it's actually optimism, Ali, - I think it's a lack of pessimism. You can see the major fear gauges around the world, like the VIX index, US Treasury bonds and gold are all falling. I think, look, it's a combination of factors, it's just that investors have got a slightly, are a bit more risk tolerant lately. ALI MOORE: Even Macquarie shares ended up, and that was despite their capital raising at a big discount? CHARLIE AITKEN: Yeah, Macquarie shareholders who took up the placement at $27 got a nice bonus today, with the stock 23 per cent above the placement price. I think that comes down to, Ali, that Macquarie only gave new equity to people who already held their shares. That means people who were short had to cover their short positions. That combined with a better tone from overseas saw Macquarie up on the day, which I think surprised quite a few people. ALI MOORE: Well, you talked about a lack of pessimism, but in terms of the big news of the day, it was really the announcement of the delay with the introduction of the emissions trading scheme. Stocks were well up before that delay, but can you give us an idea of how shares reacted? CHARLIE AITKEN: Well, it was a tremendous day if you're a big polluter. I mean, anything that's a relatively large polluter had a good day, anything from coal stocks through to BHP and Rio Qantas, BlueScope Steel, Orica, INSETEC, the two chemical manufacturer, building material stocks, anything that was going to be a net loser from carbon emission trading had a very good day as it gets pushed back again. But that's relatively understandable. You'll find in tougher economic times that environmental issues get put back a little bit. ALI MOORE: But all those rises, as you say, they were extensive, would you really put all that movement down to just delay? Or were there other factors at play? CHARLIE AITKEN: Look, I'd say it was 50 per cent of the moves were the carbon trading emission scheme pushback and the other 50 per cent was just a generally better tone to cyclical stocks. All those stocks are quite cyclical as well, and cyclical stocks led the market today. ALI MOORE: Well, the energy sector was up 5 per cent across the board and Roc Oil up 21 per cent? CHARLIE AITKEN: Roc Oil's coming off a low base, but there is a takeover rumour there, which is quite believable, actually. I mean, actually looks a very cheap stock. But the energy sector is trying to do better. The oil looks like it clearly bottomed. Oil looks like it wants to go back to $60, $65 a barrel, and energy stocks led by Woodside today, really, did very nicely. ALI MOORE: Well, the other bit of news that we got was from the Future Fund and the fact over the last nine months, they loss, or it was a paper loss, so I guess they shrank some $6-billion. How did that performance compare to many other sovereign wealth funds? CHARLIE AITKEN: Well, relative to other sovereign funds, it's a fantastic effort. I mean, a good percentage of that fall is actually their Telstra shareholding. But relative to the Middle Eastern sovereign funds, the Chinese sovereign funds, some of the Asian sovereign funds, who really lost a lot of money trying to early recapitalise stocks like Merrill Lynch and Citigroup, which went on to be all but zero, that's a pretty good outcome from the Future Fund considering the conditions. ALI MOORE: So what are the key things that we should watch out for the week? CHARLIE AITKEN: Well, there's bank stress results in America on Thursday. But other than that it's just end of the US reporting season. I think the market wants to go higher, Ali. It seems everyone's waiting for a pullback - there's a lot of cash on the sidelines. I said on this show eight weeks ago the market had bottomed. The market has bottomed, and we're going to see a little bit more cash come in from the sidelines. I expect the markets to go higher over the week. ALI MOORE: And of course there's an interest rate decision this week as well, tomorrow. Are you expecting anything? CHARLIE AITKEN: No, I think the Reserve Bank will stay on hold. They're still monitoring the situation. But the key thing was last week where the US Federal Reserve said cash rates were going to remain low for an extended period. And I think that's why we're seeing such a rally in risk and high yield stocks are seeing a little bit of support, as well. ALI MOORE: Charlie Aitken, thanks for joining us. CHARLIE AITKEN: Thank you, Ali.

and again.... all very interesting... ----------------- http://www.tradingmarkets.com/.site/news/Stock%20News/2307219/ May 04, 2009 (The Australian Financial Review - ABIX via COMTEX) -- RCILF | Quote | Chart | News | PowerRating -- Roc Oil Company has denied rumours of a takeover bid.

This newspaper article puts a slightly different take on it imo. No smoke without fire imo. -------- http://www.thewest.com.au/default.aspx?MenuID=159&ContentID=139688 Roc Oil shoots higher on takeover speculation 4th May 2009, 11:15 WST Shares in Roc Oil rose more than 20 per cent today after the oil and gas producer said it was aware of rumours it may be a takeover target. In a statement to the Australian Securities Exchange, Roc said while it was aware of the market talk, it had "not received any takeover proposal". "Consistent with previous public statements, Roc continues to evaluate all strategic alternatives concerning the company's assets, ownership and capital position in the current operating environment," it said. Roc shares were 10 cents, or 20.2 per cent, higher to 59.5 cents at 11.10am, valuing the company at about $349.88 million. Roc has assets in Australia, the UK, Mauritania and China. AAP

thegreatgeraldo - apologies for the confusion I posted on the wrong thead - I've got another company that did issue an RNS on the move today. The only thing I know about ROC is its undervalued and should not drop back too far even if nothing happens - I'm holding for a while yet.

Jpendle - 5 May'09 - 12:54 - 924 of 929 Thisis a sure winner now - the RNS says they are going for the best offer, but it is clear there are other competitive potential offers so little or no chance of being left with no deal. Which RNS are you referring to? Here's the one from this morning.. ....ROC is aware of market rumours that the Company may be subject to a takeover bid. ROC has not received any takeover proposal. Consistent with previous public statements, ROC continues to evaluate all strategic alternatives concerning the Company's assets, ownership and capital position in the current operating environment. ROC is in compliance with and will continue to comply with its continuous disclosure obligations.

Agreed. That is why I have had ROC on my monitor for months. Undervalued, as with so many bombed out oil stocks, and oil will stabilise at a higher price. How it dropped 100USD in a few months is beyond me. Pure manipulation. But it goes the other way too. And we all know that oil is a precious resource that will only eventually become more scarce and expensive. Trying to make a quick buck overnight? Up to you. Retirement money.... no brainer. imo etc.

Of course putting this potential bid to one side at $54 barrel we are making a lot of money as they have said all is good over $40. imo dyor. I really think we are hugely undervalued at present with oil at $54 a barrel, present assets and potential future finds. This is why a bid is very likely imo. dyor.

The other thing of note, is that at present, the volume here is miniscule compared to recent volume on the ASX. I doubt it will be long before this is picked up on Leader monitors and the volume here picks up. Maybe that is wishful thinking, but as you say, no smoke without fire.

Have had ROC on my monitor for a while, but only bought in last Friday at 27p, as I could see something was brewing. Pleased to see ASX price up to 60c on Monday, but disappointed to see it remain there Tuesday. My guess was they had no lead as we were closed Monday, hence carrot/donkey analogy. P.S. I had no problem buying Friday. Only 11K though.

Interesting. Despite the RNS, or reading into it what you will, the price here has steadily climbed this morning. Overnight on Monday, the ASX caught up with the sterling price. ( roughly 2:1 for AUD:GBP ) Hotcopper thread suggests something is brewing in the UK, so they are following our price, yet threads here suggest the other way round. Not sure whether the carrot is leading the donkey, or the donkey is chasing the carrot. How long this will continue before an announcement, or lack of, remains to be seen. I hold.

Doubt it imo, if you know the comapny is for sale why would you want to sell and miss the rns which states that they have just had an offer.
