jonathancouch79: Do you think the share price will hit £50 anytime soon?
tin5866: So tender offer is now out there.The recent share buy back hasn't done much for the share price (as it is 'supposed to'). Selling off Costa doesn't look so clever now.Dilemma is whether or not to tender some or all of my shares. My thoughts:The formula they will use to work out the final price caps it at £50, so might be worth tendering at the high end (and having the possibility of getting out at a decent premium to the current share price - not guaranteed of course). Perhaps you have faith in Whitbread continuing to do well. But it could stagnate and be snapped up on the cheap. On the other hand Elliott Advisors (activist investor) could force the Board to take drastic action (offload some of the property portfolio). So many considerations and not easy.A special dividend would have made life much simpler. Might be worth hanging on for that. It could follow if the tender offer is not fully taken up.
philanderer: Whitbread hostage to cyclical market, says Interactive Investor Since the sale of Costa, Whitbread (WTB) is ‘hostage’ to the ‘cyclical hotels market’, says Interactive Investor. The owner of Premier Inn has laid the groundwork in guiding expectations lower but analyst Richard Hunter said the latest update was ‘light on cheer’. Hotels are coming under pressure from an uncertain economic outlook, weak accommodation sales, and increasing cost inflation. Richard Hunter, Head of Markets at interactive investor, said the company had provided a cautious short-term outlook ‘and it is not easy to gauge where the next fillip for the share price may come from’, he said. ‘With the metrics of occupancy, average room rate, and revenue per available room also in current decline, the group clearly has its work cut out,’ Hunter added. ‘The current market consensus of the shares as a “hold” is unlikely to come under upward pressure until its strategy begins to bear fruit.’ HTTPS://citywire.co.uk/funds-insider/news/the-expert-view-tesco-whitbread-and-berkeley/a1242149?section=funds-insider&_ga=2.67012526.1440421458.1561021059-999094540.1561021059#i=3
lukmanpatel: Another troll by the username lsehotdealz haha, share price is stagnant and there’s talks of fundraise at 10p on that board lol desperation has lead to going round posting on different board to prevent share price from dropping, usually ud stay quiet and average down and accumulate if you see huge potential lmaoo he’s spamming all the boards and a newly registered today as a member lol
jeffian: "Remaining shareholders get a bigger slice of the cake so eps goes up. Simples" Well it would be simple if the share price could be manipulated to reflect the equivalent gain in EPS/NAV but Mr. Market has a horrible habit of not doing what he's told. I hate share buybacks. They only "return cash" to those shareholders who sell....and aren't shareholders any more! £2bn of hard cash and the chances are that your shares will be worth exactly the same or less. Of course, many/most Directors' incentive schemes use improvements in EPS/NAV as a Key Performance Indicator for their bonuses. Heaven forbid that could have anything to do with their fondness for blowing your cash in this way.
philanderer: Activist Elliott renews attack on Whitbread by plotting radical overhaul of Premier Inn Revered Wall Street activist Elliott Advisors is poised to renew its attack on Whitbread, putting it on a collision course with boss Alison Brittain for the second time in little over a year. The Sunday Telegraph understands that Elliott is becoming increasingly frustrated by the leisure giant’s strategy of owning Premier Inn hotels outright, claiming that such a move is depressing the company’s share price and leaving it open to a cut-price hostile takeover. Sources said the Paul Singer-founded fund, one of Whitbread’s biggest investors, wants it to offload chunks of its £5.8bn property portfolio. ...City sources said that Elliott, known for being one of the world’s most ­aggressive fund managers, wants Whitbread to sell 10-15pc of its hotel portfolio and “continue to be open-minded about the rest”. Those close to the $35bn (£27bn) fund manager say it, and a number of other Whitbread investors, want Premier Inn to start operating hotels owned by other companies. “It’s a strange position to be in to not have franchising or a management company,” said one person. “It’s a real outlier and the markets are punishing them for it. “The biggest risk is that is someone comes and buys this whole business.” https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2019/05/04/activist-elliott-renews-attack-whitbread-plotting-radical-overhaul/
bountyhunter: They will be awarding themselves more options next now that they have depressed the share price! I got out a while ago after the Costa announcement due to lack of confidence in the current board.
philanderer: Morgan Stanley noted that previous guidance for flat full-year profit before tax has been dropped and said the update points a £40mln-£50mln PBT headwind, suggesting modest downside to its £415m estimate but more to the City consensus of £443m. Analysts at the bank estimate that every 1% on RevPAR feeds through to £8m-£13m to EBIT, and that every 1,000 new rooms is roughly £8-10m to EBIT. Looking at the shares Morgan Stanley said have "we no longer see the valuation as that attractive", with an 'equal-weight' rating. Numis said its current assumption of a 2% fall in RevPAR "looks too optimistic and we see mid single digit downside to consensus estimates as a result" and while noting the structural growth prospects in both the UK and Germany and the strength of operating model and returns, expects the weak market RevPAR and negative earnings momentum will weigh on the share price in the near term. Numis added that the £2bn tender offer "is an important part of the return of capital", noting that the use of a "variable price" offer will mean the price range is based on a volume-weighted average price of Whitbread's shares in a short period up to and including closing of the tender offer at the point of completion.

jeffian: I really, really, HATE share buybacks, especially when described as a 'return of cash' to shareholders. Yes, yes, I understand the principle that reducing shares in issue bumps up NAV and EPS on the remaining shares, but in practice that does not often correlate to an equivalent rise in the share price. If I want to sell some of my shares, I can do so in the market; if I don't, where's my share of the cash being 'returned to shareholders'? In a case like this where a substantial part of the company's assets have been sold for cash, surely the appropriate action is to make a Return of Capital to all shareholders equally then carry out a general share consolidation?
ygor705: Personally I am not too concerned about AirBnb.....the new Hub concept plus other initiatives in places like Cardiff to offer rooms at as low a price as £19 per night should keep WTB more competitive than many of its peers. Also, the longer BREXIT goes on then the more likely that UK hotel demand is likely to hold up. I am more concerned about the absence of news on the tender offer. To my mind, the Company's Board is in complete conflict with its shareholders on this issue and needs to tread carefully. The downbeat nature of today's announcement makes me wonder if the share price is being deliberately managed downwards for the benefit of the Board.
