septimus quaid: I think about lost opportunity sometimes but even this is fraught with risk, what if you’d taken your money out of Talk at £4 and stuck it in Carillon (I’m sure there’s a lot of similar examples)? The older I get, the more the stock market seems less about investment and more just out and out gambling. Plus everything is “priced to perfection”, one wobble and a company’s share price gets slaughtered. Look at Neil Woodford, the guy has been hailed as the UK’s answer to Warren Buffet. …although you might be glad you didn't invest in his Patient Capital Trust fund in August 2015. Woodford is the high profile figurehead, he will be surrounded by a team of experienced and very clever people to assist him with research and decision making. So, if he can’t get it right, what hope is there for the rest of us?
quepassa: Interims 15th. November. This is Talk's Outlook as per their 19/7/17 RNS 3month Trading Update to 30th. June. "Outlook Our FY18 guidance remains unchanged, with base and revenues expected to grow year on year, improving free cash flow, and EBITDA of £270m-£300m. " Since that time, they have been advertising heavily with many market-beating offers dropping through letterboxes. Can we also expect an update on the rumoured disposal of their mobile telephony business? My instincts tell me that the recent great strength in share price speaks volumes. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
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.
quepassa: Re The OFCOM findings and large fine for BT. It would appear to me that TalkTalk would now have very strong grounds to start civil/corporate litigation against BT for loss of income, unfair market practices and very significant financial compensation. Share price has been perking up since return of Sir Charles in an Executive capacity combined with BT getting a major slap on the wrists and the separation of Openreach. Good also to see Talktalk significantly hotting its marketing campaigns up again. After a couple of years in the wilderness, it seems that a rapid rehabilitation for TalkTalk is underway as the operating environment turns positively in its favour. Very encouraging. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
quepassa: Whichever way you cut the mustard, a fall in share price from 400p to 150p between 2015 and 2016 is bottom-drawer performance. It is dire. Longer-term shareholders have seen big falls. This is unacceptable in my view. The share price is now lower than it was 6 years ago in 2010. In my view, time is now up on the current Chief Executive who has presided over this bleak period where the market seems to have lost much confidence in TalkTalk, despite the attractive dividends paid. The ultimate responsibility must firmly rest in my opinion with the captain of the ship at the time of the juvenile hack-attack, from whence such market woe commenced. In my opinion only, Sir Charles Dunstone and his Board would be well-advised to start looking for a new CEO to help put Talktalk back on track in an attempt restore confidence and re-establish forward momentum. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
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...
1gw: talktalk - Vodafone? Hardly a new idea I know, but it seems to me the environment can hardly ever have been more favourable for Vodafone to make a move: o Vodafone would presumably be interested in talktalk to give it a fixed broadband offering. Talktalk had about 4.2m "on-net" broadband customers in 4QFY15 (March 2015), whereas Vodafone had just 66k UK fixed line broadband customers at 31/3/15. cf Vodafone's 5.4m fixed line broadband customers in Germany at the same date. o Talktalk's move into "superfast" newbuild networks (Ultra Fibre Optic), although in its early stages yet, might be an interesting option for Vodafone to accelerate as a counter-point to Liberty Global's move to expand its own UK superfast network (Project Lightning). o A move to rebrand "talktalk" as "Vodafone" could, if managed right, almost instantly significantly mitigate the reputation damage suffered by talktalk in recent weeks. o The price needed to seal the deal would presumably be far lower than it would have been had Vodafone made a move when the share price was much higher. o Last and probably least, a move by Vodafone on talktalk might be seen as a good idea for other reasons by some in Vodafone: either those disappointed and on the rebound from the talks with Liberty Global; or indeed those wanting to try to make a hostile move on Vodafone by Liberty Global less attractive to John Malone. My speculation only. Errors excepted. Please do your own research.
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.
quepassa: Thank you for posting this. Curious. Because the FCA disclosed short positions tell a different story. Disclosed positions have gone down with FIL no longer having a disclosable short position. They have fallen since the beginning of the year from 4.9% to 4.4% The official FCA short position list hasn't changed in the past few weeks and is today around 4.4% as follows Eminence Cap 1.90 Highline CapMan 0.69 Jericho CAM 0.63 ODEY AM 1.20 So there is a large gap between figures for FCA disclosed shorters and Euroclear Share On Loan figures. I think it is unlikely and too simplistic to suggest that the 6% difference between the Euroclear figures and FCA list is uniquely made up of hoards of small-ticket shorters. My instinct tells me that the Euroclear figures comprise to a very large degree stock which is being lent through Euroclear for purposes other than shorting. That is to say, being lodged through Euroclear as increasingly valuable collateral to support different trading positions. Perhaps and for me, the most telling point is that there is zero increase in disclosable shorting which is normally the precinct of institutional traders. That remains a distinctly positive sign. I also have to be believe, in my opinion only, that the short positions held by Eminence, Highline, Jericho and Odey are increasingly deteriorating and, in certain cases, significantly out-of-the-money, given the steep rise recently in the TalkTalk share price. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
quepassa: Having come back strongly from today's earlier negative territory ,TalkTalk share price now pushing forward solidly into the blue. Hopeful of 330 soon now. ALL IMO> DYOR. QP
