Please excuse my ignorance but with regards to the dividends pending is or was there there a cut-off date for share held for due dividend payment or are they calculated on shares held on a given day prior to payment?
very encouraging article on Reuters re. the above. The headline on Reuters says it all--"China Fosun's tourism unit eyes fundraising for overseas M & A: president". Sounds good to me !!
I won't repeat here all the points the article makes, except to say: (a) as the Reuters headline says, it's based on an interview/ quotes with the president of Fosun's tourism unit. (b) there's no timeline on the investments they're looking to make in the travel/ tourism sector, BUT THEY DEFINITELY ARE ACTIVELY SEARCHING FOR INVESTMENTS TO MAKE. (c) the investments they're looking at will be outside of China, and they don't think that will be a problem for the Chinese govt
To find the article, go to the U.K. version of Reuters, do a search for Thomas Cook (magnifying glass on top right of screen), and then when the search results come up, change the "Sort By" tag from 'Relevance' to 'Date' and you'll see the above headline come up near the very top. Click to read. Enjoy !!
Despite the cautious outlook from Thomas Cook Group PLC (LON:TCG) in yesterday’s first quarter results, Zak Mir reckons shares in the travel operator could still head towards the £1 zone in the coming weeks.
“The summer was really the low point for the stock breaking back above the 50-day moving average in August and it’s been guided by that line ever since,” Mir explains in the latest Proactive Investors Bulletin Board segment.
“[The stock is] in a rising trend channel from June with the top of the channel heading towards 100p and that’s the target on a technical basis while we hold above the floor of the channel towards the 80p level.”
At 10.00 this morning TCG had made it back to 85.5 which I regard as an insight into where we are going. The faltering reaction to the results is not surprising and the intervention by Standard has had an impact and that intervention may be no bad thing. Faltering but holding up. With a smooth ride for a couple of months (no serious global troubles) then I feel safe and my optimism remains in place despite patience being stretched. As ever gla
you would have thought there was a good chance of a quid shortly, but were results honestly that bad, seems like an over reaction, " cautious" statement to the media, unhelpful , there has to be something seriously wrong or dodgy with stock market that can force a share down to 10p only to rise to £ 1.80 and then back to 60p.
Oversold,will come good,better than last time,ect ect,everyone will have grey hair(or none) before this share performs.I am now of the opinion that being kidded here has gone on too long,three years in decline,it`s now reached the time to decide whether apply the old cliche to this situation ie "flogging a dead horse"I know many will react and say the same things that have been said over the last few years -- situations out there in the big wide world are hitting this company,get real,the main reason is now competition from others. The city still have doubts,it`s obvious to all,fourteen months have gone bye and this has not broken a quid.troubles that once affected the share price massively, have dried up. This week the share price has shown that it`s still in the grasp of the "get rich quick boys", yesterday it was well up early doors only to fade away in late trading,did they know somehow what to expect today? I am sure many will think it`s only a small setback and things will improve,the March update will be eagerly awaited,hopefully with (at last) better news,the confidence in this company will I am sure return.Anything less and the afforementioned cliche might just be true
Not a holder of these shares but tc and tui may start to loose more customers to jet2 as they are starting to get a large stake in short haul holiday business and also ryanair will start up their package holidays shortly so could see some shake up in the next few years tui have recently stopped selling jet2 holidays
