Thanks again redtom for all your updates.I sold the balance off my SHP this morning at 45.50. Not absolutely the top but, like you, a very good result.Now considering whether to reinvest ASAP or wait for the dust to settle....

My last post on Shire. Thank you Shire for making my retirement come earlier. Good luck to any remaining holders. Next to no margin left now. Value of the Takeda offer a few minutes ago, based on live fx rates, was 4,571p made up of 2,395p in cash & 2,176p in shares. With current share price of 4,547p the current Shire share price would need to rise by 0.54% to match. From the original offer valued at 4901p, we've lost 705p in value due to fall in value of Takeda shares but gained 376p because of favourable fx movements on both the cash and share elements. Takeda share price (Yen) = 3718 £:$ = 1.26635 £:Yen = 143.332

Cash in dollars, paper in Yen, quoted in sterling, bit of a mess.

Pretty much the only stock I've seen never to close anywhere near offer price. Even after getting past voting by shareholders.

I'm no longer in this as a sold first thing yesterday before the panic set it. Very little premium now because of a big fall in Takeda overnight. Not quite sure what caused that given the Japanese market was up. Good luck to any remaining holders. Value of the Takeda offer a few minutes ago, based on live fx rates, was 4,647p made up of 2,379p in cash & 2,268p in shares. With current share price of 4,540p the current Shire share price would need to rise by 2.36% to match. From the original offer valued at 4901p, we've lost 603p in value due to fall in value of Takeda shares but gained 349p because of favourable fx movements on both the cash and share elements. Takeda share price (Yen) = 3889 £:$ = 1.27484 £:Yen = 143.858

I'm minded to leave this a few days before selling the balance of my SHP and looking for a new home for the proceeds (after next weeks political shenanigans). I would be interested to hear what you might be currently looking at if you willing to share? My current watchlist comprises: Av, BP, Bats, Fres, HSBC, Lgen, Lloy, Saga, SLA, Standard Chartered. Unfortunately the rump of my SHP is not within an ISA or SIPP so a taxable income share is not a priority for this reinvestment. Currently leaning towards Fres which, to my thinking should rebound nicely when sentiment towards it changes or will be a good hedge against a further downturn if wider market sentiment doesn't. Similar thinking for Bats but they have heavy debt and I already have a large weighting in IMB in my sipp and isa. Others in mind, I moved the first half of my SHP into VOD so although sold half at £ 44 it did actually work out a good move.

Ali47fish, The easiest option is to sell. For those willing to wait a month and willing to deal in US listed Japanese stock there could be a few percent to be made. Having said that these few percent (currently around 3.85%) are dependent on exchange rates between £ and USD & YEN and movements in Takeda share price so not for the lighthearted. Personally I am happy for some of this risk (I sold some this morning as there were other bargains out there) and I'm happy for say a 2% return over one month. But I think Takeda share price could rise now that all of the uncertainty has been removed. This will be a monster global healthcare company and Shire will enhance its eps. So if they can integrate it well, Takeda could be a more popular stock than it has been recently. But if you don't like the risk and you're sitting on a profit then perhaps you should book the profit over the next few weeks. Good luck.

Pete, here you go. Around 4% to play with but will be interesting to see where Takeda goes now. Thanks for the generous words. Retirement (full time day trading probably) in the spring now secured! Value of the Takeda offer a few minutes ago, based on live fx rates, was 4,854p made up of 2,382p in cash & 2,472p in shares. With current share price of 4,674p the current Shire share price would need to rise by 3.85% to match. From the original offer valued at 4901p, we've lost 398p in value due to fall in value of Takeda shares but gained 351p because of favourable fx movements on both the cash and share elements. Takeda share price (Yen) = 4240 £:$ = 1.27349 £:Yen = 143.889

Well done to redtom who has read this situation well all of the way through (and not been put off by moaning monty). A well deserved retirement for you perhaps? Also good to see that the Takeda shares lifted on the news which although perhaps a (partial) recovery of recent losses, is a move in the right direction nonetheless. Redtom - when you have a chance are you able to update the bid price, just interested how much head room we have left between now and planned completion in early Jan. Mind you, lots of potential opportunities to reinvest elsewhere in the next week or so, so I might well sell the remainder of my SHP and move on.

I piled in every penny I have yesterday so I hope we get an uplift today. I will probably sell today if recent return.

I may be wrong but I think the shareholder vote to clear (or block) the vote is this Wednesday.

Monty, not really messy. Deal to be sanctioned on Wednesday. Still a nice little earner given the current chaos. Another 6%+ of easy money to be made. Lovely.
