BADG,I did think it would start creeping up as he built his holding, due to 70% of the shares being held by institutions and insiders, which leaves him trying to get another 17% from joe public, with lots with burnt fingers who will hold forever and a day in hope that one day they get their money back. It may start to creep at some point, but it's not in his favour for it do that, but as you can see there's not much stock floating about really, and as for the city they know how to play the markets don't ever fool yourself you know something they don't, they will just be sitting it out one way or the other, with most sat short covering a holding they have. As for a price, my assumption is around £3.50 a share, and is also why no one is jumping on board, theres not a big upside, you could double your money at best or end up stuck if he's just value investing for the long run.

BADG, the city will know that they are safer on the short side until he hits 30%, because he will want the price as low as possible to build up his holding, Then it just simply jump up a few days before the bid and to the bid price the it's announced. It's more about what he will pay pay than when it will move, because a lot will be left out of pocket.

I wonder when the city will take note and start to factor in a potential bid.A swift bounce back from 1.60 which is a new support area now? I'm not a chartist so views welcome.(FYI: I do hold a lot of shares, sadly at a much higher price)

It must be what he is going to do, can't see why he would buy to hold these the way they are as a company, enterprise value is £2.80. So when you look at what he could get for not much past there he would do well. FCF 600m last year, then there is the pension surplus to play with at 2.5b. Not sure about any regulations regarding that, but it all assets isn't it. In five years folks will be saying he walked away with it at half price at least, because who will be objecting, if he wants it, it's a done deal.

simple reason for nobody being that bothered is probably down to most value investors are scared to step into an overinflated market, and the other side of the retail trade are chasing bubble techs on leveraged ETF's. He will probably just pick away for another six months until he reaches 30%, then pay a premium for the rest at enterprise and a bit.

British Gas tells it’s workforce to sign a new contract or risk losing their job. Mass unemployment coming down the track due to Covid is the perfect opportunity for RM to do the same and confront their militant unionised workforce head on. Only then will RM become investable.

Looks like it's starting the next leg upwards, wouldn't be surprised if it hits 225 within a couple of weeks. In my opinion shorting these is only helping any potential bidder get enough shares cheap enough to make an offer worth while. Once all the posties have thrown theirs away and any weak holders, then the only way to get the rest is at enterprise value + a bit, so 350ish. Or it recovers and it would be there in a year or so anyway, because their is a good job for any up and coming CEO to prove themselves, and turn it around, opportunity appeals to a lot in different shapes and forms, and reforming royal mail is not impossible as it is, better banking facilities and services, an investment banking arm itself. There is more opportunity than just parcels.

Encarter. CWU calls the shots. When the parcels business goes elsewhere the company will be racking up huge losses. A restructuring,and huge job loss will result. Letters are in decline. Parcels are the future. One positive about the lockdown has been the complete absence of junk mail coming through my letter box (another area where Royal mail makes money!)

CWU calls the shots now and no-one is big enough to take them on. They hold all the cards.

Anyone noticed a diabolical service from Royal Mail for second class parcel deliveries lately used to be 2-3 working days but lately i am seeing around 6-7 working days for second class parcels the postal service in the UK is like a fourth world country now they are going to lose a lot of parcel business if this continues

So who is going to get sacked for raising the price of a stamp 7 days earlier than they were legally permitted to do so? I suppose it's only £1.5 million, small change compared to some of the other wastage. Https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-53361579

encarter, it's interesting just how many large listed companies are cancelling their divi, plainly they all wish to husband cash to weather the economic train wreck that is soon going to hit. Just how many carriers will soon be fighting for a slice of what could become a declining internet-retail boom? But at least there's still plenty of room in RMG operations to make for greater efficiency, presumably Mr Vesa intends to make changes once he has a big enough slice to get on the Board?
