sza2002: I don't think you read the article past the headlines. This is only going to stop the CCG's tendering out small value services. It will not increase capacity to tackle the existing deficit which is prolonging waiting times. To increase capacity in the NHS which has been allowed to wither will take years. I think private sector will be playing a key role. You can get private medical insurance for £10.25 per month from the likes of Benenden Health(hxxps://www.benenden.co.uk/)which is very affordable. I see a bright future for Spire. Share price is at a great entry point if you are not invested. I have a small holding so I may be biased.
justiceforthemany: 125p now hit. Mdc flat. Bidders share price normally drops on takeover.
eaaxs06: A good day for the share price, let's hope for more of the same next week. Short term target now is 141.3p Good luck everyone, Sid.
eaaxs06: You seem to burst with glee and pleasure every time the share price drops, blueblood. I guess you must be trading a huge short position to be so elated every time and will do everything possible to highlight negative press or price weakness. Either that or you have a morbid sense of delight to see other investors suffer, not a trait I posses myself, but I guess it takes all sorts. Anyway, whatever your position, a very Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year to you and I hope you get everything you deserve to make you happy.
cantrememberthis2: Mediclinic last year had to write down £105m+ last year when share price was £2.25, from their initial 300p+ investment and stake of 29%. Do they write down another £120m from last year to todays share price circa 125p? Seems absurd when they COULD buy the remaining shares at substantially less than 300p, 225p in some ways. Why write off another £120m, on top of the £105m+ from previous years... i.e. £225m write down? Wow, you can by out some serious companies on the FTSE at the £250m region!!! Well,either way its been a VERY EXPENSIVE LESSON. Spire Healthcare on its knees at 125 from concerted shorting by the likes of Wallace LLP etc... who have shorted regularly from Mid Aug to as late as 8th Oct 18. The scenario created here through bad timing, NHS cost reductions and market apathy = OPPORTUNITY for others. MDC report 17OCT18. Also their CEO sits on the SPI board. Call me thick - but this is takeover territory and IF MDC are too slow to react could cost them with a predator lurking! Game on GLA, DYOR.
cantrememberthis2: Well the Brokers got their ask within DAYS from the Broker target of 130p, funny how quickly it ALWAYS seems to reach that target. Never on the broker upgrades or higher targets - shows the true power of Shorters and their crew. Sitting duck now for either Mediclinic to have another go circa 250p region (almost double todays manipulated share price) or the US HCA company that was rumoured to be sniffing around earlier this year... Then there is always the value seekers like Highclere who have stakes. I worry not for shorters on this stock as they carry the biggest RISK in my opinion should anything transpire: * Winter and NHS budgets increasing * Pressure on Waiting Lists growing * Other Private Healthcare providers folding or suffering * Predators including Private Equity looking around * Transfer of the 29.7% stake from MDC to another? * Something left of field At these very low levels regardless of the bears... I am a buyer! All IMO and DYOR
essentialinvestor: What are the negative comments?. At the tine of the bid I said Spire would be better to accept, and the sector faced challenges with cost pressures re margins, which may be underestimated. Posted that view long before the recent warning. Which of those has been incorrect, given recent results and a share price collapse since. Recently mentioned Spire now looked a sitting duck for a bid, however there's no guarantee. If you view any of that as negative, you are a very sensitive soul.
justiceforthemany: THE TIMES Meet the companies ripe for a share grab Spire Healthcare “Mediclinic217;s management will probably sigh with relief that they didn’t go ahead with a full takeover of Spire last year because the company’s shares have continued to slide. They briefly touched £1.50 a share after this week’s trading update and profit warning as NHS referrals dropped more than expected. The lower share price could tempt Mediclinic, which already owns 29.5 per cent, to return with a new offer, with Spire shareholders more willing to accept a price below last year’s offer price.”
justiceforthemany: Spire's share price is now trading at the tangible assets value alone - if you take out all intangibles and goodwill. Crazy. Why would Mediclinic have offered 315p if Spire was truly only worth 150p? Healthcare is one of the few true defensives and will only grow with the ageing population.
jonwig: In the meantime, we downgrade our 2018 EBITDA by 16% and EPS by 37%, noting that this implies gearing of 3.7x EBITDA at the end of 2018 (covenant 4.0x). With the shares down by 20% since our upgrade, our waning confidence in our prior investment thesis prompts us to consider a stop-loss action. Our new valuation, based on EV/EBITDA and DCF metrics that reflect higher risk, leads to a 120p/share price target. We therefore set our recommendation to Sell, and believe there is potential for intangible asset write-downs and a dividend cut. Speculation regarding the potential for Mediclinic to acquire Spire helps to the limit downside, but Mediclinic’s five-year low share price, and the negative reaction to its previous bid for Spire, adds risk to relying on that get-out-of-jail-free card.
