|hope so as I have just bt 9500|
|Looking set for a break through 170p this week.|
its the oxman
|Yes he's just bought another 1.15 million shares taking the holding to over 11%, so 16% held by Blackrock & Woodford|
|salchow - thanks. If it was any good, others would be doing it.|
|Excellent - should attract some decent attention. Woodford is buying up fast - he had 26.1m last month, so he's bought over 3m more since then:
|jonwig - Blackrock do this all the time on some shares that I follow. When I see them come in on a share I own I think "oh no the dreaded Blackrock". They can be in and out like a yo-yo while in some cases loaning the shares for shorting although evidently not in this case.|
|Woodford just bought some more|
|That rather blows up my theory from post #845!
However,the total number of voting rights is now 13,349,980 (5.22%) up from 13,334,980 (19/04), and 13,346,962 (18/04). CFDs are included in these. That's effectively unchanged. I've no idea what they're up to.|
|A couple of very small trades at 170p earlier.|
|Very odd, this was my post on 19th April above "I don't quite understand what Blackrock have done, buying 160K shares approx taking them over the 5% threshold and then reducing their holding immediately by 12K shares taking them below 5%. Any views?"
Blackrock have now bought 12K back within 2 days, taking them over the 5% reporting threshold!|
|BlackRock, Inc. has gone above 5%|
|Thanks jonwig. Looks promising for further rises for now.|
|Well I added today with cash from ESP which seems to be going nowhere. Thankfully up approx 50% here after about six months but up about 3% after a long time with ESP!
ESP were good dividend payers tho!|
|Thanks Jon wig. Interesting|
|RNS/s due ? Some heavy buying and ATH....Extremely positive....|
|I'd imagine any trade earlier today of 164p was a buy. Delayed or not.|
|Yet more large trades going through. Are these delayed trades? Still this does support us well above £1.60|
|Good news jonwig, cheers.
Big buy trade just reported - 487,919 shares at 164p. EDIT - plus a further 953,000 at 164p....|
|From The Times:
Theresa May is being forced into a concession over migrant targets as part of the price for calling a snap poll.
The prime minister is ready to soften her longstanding opposition to taking foreign students out of immigration totals, The Times has learnt.
Mrs May has repeatedly rejected calls from cabinet ministers including Boris Johnson, Philip Hammond and Amber Rudd to exempt students from the pledge to reduce the number of net migrants arriving in Britain each year to the tens of thousands.
Now she is offering to change the way that student numbers are calculated, with the promise of further concessions. The compromise is an attempt to ensure that an overhaul of the university system can pass through parliament in the next week.
This is of course welcome news. In theory, since students leave as well as arrive, net migration shouldn't be affected too much. But entering is much more rigorously counted than leaving, so the effect could be quite marked.|
|See Annex 1 - I imagine one of their funds was near to their internal limit. The WJG share price edged up pushing them over. Just my thought!|
|I don't quite understand what Blackrock have done, buying 160K shares approx taking them over the 5% threshold and then reducing their holding immediately by 12K shares taking them below 5%. Any views?|
|BlackRock, Inc < 5%|
|Making new highs.|
|Blackrock increasing its stake. Good news. Shows confidence.|
