philanderer: UBS note: Whitbread shares offer 'attractive risk/reward' says UBS Analysts believe Whitbread has an opportunity to create “material value” in Germany, a country with similar or possibly even better characteristics as the UK Whitbread plc (LON:WTB) shares were lifted by an upgrade from UBS to 'buy' from 'neutral' as it sees the market's predictions of sharp fall in hotel room revenue in the current financial year as "too conservative". The shares are at "an attractive risk/reward entry point", the analysts said, after around a 15% fall over the past three months to around 4,200p, a valuation that implies the market see the Premier Inn owner's revenue per available room falling 10%, while UBS forecasts the fall will be nearer 3%. The Swiss bank, which reiterated its target price of 4,850p, added that the group’s freehold property helps underpin the share price and there is “share price optionality” from Whitbread’s German expansion. While Germany is expected to remain a drag on earnings until the 2022 financial year, UBS analysts believe Whitbread has an opportunity to create “material value” in a country with similar characteristics as the UK, possibly even better. "At the moment we do not factor the potential positive value into our base case scenario but see German expansion optionality." Whitbread also has little debt, "which enables [it] to grow in a downturn", and remains the dominant branded UK hotelier with a proven model.
essentialinvestor: Https:// That was the transaction I referred to recently
new life: Helpful that, lolI get the basics-don't get how a big shirt actually influences share price unless they have insider info. Here's another daft one, are the tender shares all cancelled ?
new life: Will show my nativity here but how does a company who is shorting stock actually influence share price?Aren't they just betting price will fall based on the info around at that time ?
jeffian: "Capital return programme completed Whitbread has previously announced its plans to return £2.5 billion surplus capital to shareholders, unless more value creating alternatives arose. The first phase was a share buyback programme conducted from 17 January 2019 to 10 May 2019. This first phase completed with a total of £482 million of Ordinary Shares repurchased. The second phase is the Tender Offer, which will result in £2 billion of Ordinary Shares being repurchased. This means the total returned to date is £2.5 billion and, therefore, the Company is not planning any further returns of capital." So, am I understanding this right? On 31/8/18 when the Costa sale was announced there were 183,620,409 shares in issue. The share price following the sale announcement was around £47. WTB subsequently announced that the amount to be "returned to shareholders" was £2.5bn = £13.60/share(?). Have I got this right? I didn't participate in the Tender Offer and now own the same number of shares worth......about £47/share. I must say, I don't feel as if I've seen much of that £2.5bn........
retsius: Well good for it! At last some common sense. I would have kept the whole £3.5B in the bank and looked for opportunities going forward. Massive shorters now into the stock to manipulate the share price and the company is unable to do anything about it.These shorters can hammer the price downwards. The ordinary shareholder to be shafted when the company should be ROCK solid. imho/dyor
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://
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: 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?
