RE: Shane Ross's
9 Mar '14
I like his contrarion style by calling everyone (except Ross) suckers - Noonan, the Government, BoI management, existing shareholders and new shareholders, etc. The problem is that Bkir at 10 cent was never going to be a zero sum game.

My point is that I don't believe the new buyers are suckers. We don't know who they are yet but we do know they have a lot of money. Think about that, they have a lot of money - doesn't sound like a sucker in my book. The fact that they are represented by DB and approached WR is not really relevant to me (but again many would see that as positive)

Long timers on here will remember my comments when I wrote way back when this share was in the early .2 range that the next big change would be change in ownership profile - that is what we are seeing now - this is natural evolution for Bkir.

So we will find out soon who they are and this time next year we will find out if they are suckers!

Enjoy the bumps!

Shane Ross

I think Mr. Shane Ross sounds very upset and bitter in this article. He talks of WR saving BOI of state control, and that's correct. He also says people thought WR bought "a load of rubbish" when he first obtained the shares. I'm sure he was one of those people. Well, they where wrong. Yes WR got in cheap and made a profit. But nobody wanted the shares back then, as there was genuine fear of the bank collapsing, them fears are now gone. Hence, WR able to attract a buyer of 2billion shares @.329.

Is it just me or is this reporter Shane Ross bitter at missing out earlier on this share? He and many others talk this share down, but I bet if it dropped to far, they would be selling the family silver to buy them up. He sounds aggrieved that he didn't get them at a lower price. Who even is that MUPPET to advise "small time investors" "to sell up now", he's a scare mongering fool. IMO

Agreed. Jaundiced, superfluous noise as usual.

Criticism of Bank of Ireland

Prior to the Irish financial crisis he was a persistent critic of the performance of Bank of Ireland, of which he was a shareholder. He contrasted the conservative performance of the "establishment" Bank of Ireland with other financial institutions, notably Irish Nationwide Building Society (INBS) and Anglo Irish Bank (Anglo) which he praised. In his Sunday Independent column he describedMichael Fingleton's Irish Nationwide as publishing "a cracking set of figures... he even leaves superstar Sean Fitzpatrick's Anglo Irish standing"[28] " and in another column dismissed shareholder critics of Fingleton, notably Brendan Burgess[29] and contrasted the small shareholder rebellions of Eircom, Smurfit and First Active with that of the INBS, whose CEO, he claimed "despite all his abrasiveness, was delivering small riches to them" ,[30] Ross dismissed the corporate governance concerns of Fingleton's critics writing "for all his faults, has delivered the only thing that matters in business: profit".

As radar would say "enough said"
