septimus quaid: Re share price fall, the only explanation I’ve seen published was in yesterday’s Times newspaper (biggest movers) and this was to say “telecoms sector out of favour”. Whatever that’s supposed to mean. Otherwise, ticking back up today
quepassa: 1. Short positions reached 2.9% in mid July. Two months later shorts have now significantly reduced to 1.88% A positive sign as TalkTalk has rallied strongly. 2. Yesterday 12/9 Deutsche Bank REITERATED its BUY RECOMMENDATION on TalkTalk with an unchanged PRICE TARGET of 180p. Deutsche Bank see a massive c.40% UPSIDE to current share price . ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
septimus quaid: The billionaire entrepreneur Sir Charles Dunstone ‎has taken advantage of a slide in the share price of TalkTalk by topping up his stake to cement his status as the company's biggest investor..... hTtps://
quepassa: Whilst it may serve some to see a low price, the combination of: 1). Deutsche's REITERATE BUY recommendation today with INCREASED TARGET PRICE of 180p, combined with 2). Tosca's stake-building , now to a massive 15.1%, plus 3). Eye-catching growth projections in Talk's recent announcements, and 4). BT losing its stranglehold on live football coverage should be a major impetus for a major and rapid share price recovery in my opinion. The share price was approaching 140p in early May. Personally, I see little reason why it wouldn't swiftly retest and go through those levels. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
quepassa: Good question. Who knows....maybe someone wants a low price for an agenda which may or may not be to attempt to acquire TalkTalk on the cheap. But it brings to mind a lesson learned from a certain gentleman. Many, many moons ago, a certain gentleman recounted a tale whereby he was invested in a dairy produce company (which shall remain nameless) which had a 40% overseas shareholder which was also a dairy produce company. This dairy produce company was doing rather well but the company just kept on putting out non-stop variable and sometimes negative news, cutting dividends and making unsettling announcements at seemingly every opportunity despite the underlying figures looking good. of course such negative vibes and news unsettled and depressed the price quite a lot, maybe halving over a year. Lo and behold when the price had been well and truly trashed, the 40% overseas shareholder put in a low-ball offer for the rest of the company. The offer was derisory, being very low as measured against any normal comparisons and the share price of just a year ago. The strange thing about this offer was that it had already been agreed and was a RECOMMENDED OFFER by The Board. Needless to say, all the top guns moved happily over to the new owner and the 40% shareholder was very happy to have bought the company on the cheap. The company was merged and within a surprisingly short space of time was doing rather well again. Who knows but maybe they were feeding their cattle on daisies. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
pierre oreilly: With cityfibre being taken over at more or less double the market price, I would expect a bigger jolt to the price of talk. with 7.4bn euro of funding, it's really possible they may take out more companies in the same business. Nic Fildes, Telecoms Correspondent 54 MINUTES AGO Print this page CityFibre, the British telecoms company, has recommended a £538m takeover by a consortium of infrastructure funds backed by Goldman Sachs pitched at a 93 per cent premium to the share price of the company. It is the latest sign that funds are targeting Britain’s ‘altnets’; which are building full fibre networks in areas that Openreach, BT’s engineering arm, has yet to upgrade. CityFibre has an agreement with Vodafone, signed last year, and has targeted a roll out reaching 20 per cent of the UK population. Antin Infrastructure Fund, a specialist fund with €7.4bn of capital, has teamed up with West Street Infrastructure Funds, which are managed by Goldman Sachs, to make the bid. The bid has already been accepted by two-thirds of shareholders.
1gw: The downside is protected (in my view) in that scenario in part because ultimately they will reach a level of equity ownership they are happy with and then any downward pressure on the share price caused by their buying algorithms will stop. And in a company as big as talktalk I would hope the impact of the algorithms on the share price is somewhat less than it might be in say a small AIM company - as ultimately other institutions would step in to buy if they felt the shareprice was grossly undervaluing the company. I don't think algorithmic selling pressure (intended to lower the average buying price) is going to stop out one of the big 5 shareholders, but it might at the margin scare out some PIs and weaker institutional holders. But mainly in my view the protection comes from my belief (which of course may or not be correct) based on limited analysis of past Toscafund positions that Toscafund would not be buying in so aggressively unless it saw a reasonable possibility of a value-adding inorganic move that it could pull off with the support of at least Dunstone and Ross. And in that scenario, I don't believe Dunstone and Ross (or Invesco and Capital) would allow the company to be taken out for a "pittance" so I believe any inorganic end-game would be likely to involve a premium (for shareholders) to the placing price.
garycook: TalkTalk Telecom Group (LSE: TALK) currently yields exactly 8%. Yesterday it was yielding 8.33%, but Friday’s 5% share price surge has trimmed that slightly. The surge was triggered by a positive note from HSBC, which upgraded its investment rating from hold to buy and hiked its price target from 175p to 250p. With the stock currently trading at 198p, that would suggest a potential 26% upside, if HSBC is proved correct. This will only go a small way to reversing the disastrous performance of the past two years, which has seen the share price hammered by multiple cyber attacks, which cost the group £42m and contributed to the £18m fall in profits. TalkTalk also suffered reputational damage, when it emerged that the industrial scale fraud operation stemmed from Indian IT service firm Wipro, which it had contracted in 2011 to provide some of its call centre work. Quite a bundle Yet recent Q3 results were promising, with re-contracting rates in the third quarter stronger than expected, low churn, and a strong legacy business of loyal customers. The multi-services entertainment group is in recovery mode, its share price up 15% in three months, as it builds on its niche position in the UK telecoms market and looks to take advantage of greater demand for data and product generation, both for personal and business customers. It is in a five-way stand-off, battling to hold its own against big boys such as BT, Sky, Virgin Media and Vodafone, but has held its own so far. Forecast earnings per share (EPS) growth of 55%, 11% and 12% over three years should drive down today’s pricey valuation of 22.5 times earnings to a far more acceptable 12 times, although the yield is still expected to stay high at 7.1%. This could prove a good call.
1gw: Well whether through good analysis or coincidence, it appears Haitong have called the talktalk share price much better than nearly all the other analysts (although Jefferies has also had a "low" target price for a while). So I'm hoping that now we're pretty much at their 150p target, they might decide that's enough and the future looks a bit brighter. Strange how the Haitong updates never seem to get a mention on QP's thread...
bobsidian: Charting is an essential "tool of the trade" for investors or traders alike. Without it you can be operating blind whilst placing reliance on an investment justification which can be the subject of change. It is uncanny at just how often shares rise or fall within certain parameters. For example the most recent share price fall of TALK has been halted at a key retracement level which also seems to be a support level last seen in October 2014. Coincidence ? Equity markets deploy the discount mechanism. They price the future into the present. How often have you read investor/trader posts on bulletin boards complaining about the absence of share price movement to stellar financial results ? Much more often than not those stellar financial results would have been reflected in a share price a year or so previous. It is forward guidance which tends to be the key to future share price movements. However, quantitative easing has distorted the valuation of so many asset classes of which equities are but one class. To have equity markets at current levels you see share after share with a PEG factor of as much as 3 when fair value is 1. That in itself suggests market forces have been happy to see share prices reflect as much as 3 years worth of future earnings growth into the present. The last time we have seen that kind of behaviour was in late 1999/early 2000 and late 2007/early 2008. To have that kind of confidence there is a need for certainty about the visibility of earnings. That is now the subject of challenge by market forces seeking to reduce share prices to reflect a lesser earnings time horizon. And that seems to have triggered significant declines in the share prices of companies which were pricing too much of the future in to the present. As far as TALK is concerned, I can appreciate your doubt about the ex-growth commentary. The ex-growth assessment is more about the share price falling from the £4 level seen as recently as June. Perhaps this is down to the management of TALK reassessing market conditions by commenting on the rate of churn, the costs attached to attracting new custom and the financial implications of the profit margins achievable from new generation revenues relative to the diminishing legacy revenues.
