Looking at the RSI, Wmh looks like its had a rest and is ready for the push to the £2 , only 11p to go, will it make it by the end of the month. 4% to go to break even since the lows, Wishing now that i had averaged down, But that's life.
On another note , I still think that caesars will be wanting to buy out WMH.
Thanks gewillia, I looked back at the previous years charts and it has mostly rallied around end nov into dec. I guess the results pending plus the Santa rally could explain this. Surely breaking into USA is going to be huge for WH. Can only see this going one way unless they get the expansion of sites wrong, probably a balance between opening sites quick enough to capture market space but not to fast they fall over there own feet. Not to mention a takeover target with the £ currently low. GLA
WMH will publish it's full year results to 31st December in early March Then in May you'll get a Trading Update. The half-year results to 30th June are published in August. Followed by a further update just before the year-end in mid-December.
So the next news we're expecting is an update in December, which will hopefully tell us that the company's first season, taking wagers on the NFL in the US, has been very profitable. Fingers crossed.
Hi thinking of getting in here but can anyone tell me does William hill only report results twice per year. ? Do they have quarterly results as looked and can’t see any previous rns’s. ? Any advice appreciated.
pintofhsb, a takeover is on the cards here and i think this is now showing in the SP. Its been a long and frustrating journey for anyone who bought in above £2 and i averaged down at the wrong time and averaged down on a rising SP at 170 where i could have bought at 150 before we seen the slump, So hence my thoughts about a stop loss. On the next results , this will fly for sure, so much good news in the pipeline from the USA, the closing of betting shops in the UK and online gaming . Looking forward to the future, Just need to get above the £2
I've recently opened a position at £1.51p. This company, plus Flutter & GVC , have been badly hit recently by the Machine Limit of £2, but their future growth hopes lie mainly in legalised gambling in the US. No-one really knows how big that market really is, or what it may grow to. The fact that illegal gambling, long dominated by organised crime, has generated most of the revenue makes any guesses highly speculative - the mafia don't publish their accounts.
However, the biggest gambling market in the US is generally agreed to be the NFL. The pre-season is over and the opening match is on Friday, Packers at the Bears, with 12 games on Sunday. All three plc's have high hopes for their US operations. Their year-ends are all 31st December, which coincides with Week 17, the end of the regular NFL season. The companies report in Feb and Mar, so there is likely to be a dearth of news until then, unless we get some pre-close trading updates around Christmas.
I doubt that any opportunistic bidder will materialise before there are some hard numbers to analyse. Nor that management could possibly recommend such a bid as US legalised gambling may turn out to be an Eldorado, or it may be a bust. Historically it's always been the bookies who drive around in Rolls-Royces, and despite recent setbacks, necessitating them culling their now-unprofitable shops in the UK, probably at considerable cost, I'm sure their Betting Shops estates should return to profitability in the near future.
My reasoning, which is regularly proved wrong, is that at least one of the big three will hit the bigtime in the USA within the next 3 to 5 years, which why I've taken some profits generated elsewhere and gone long in all three plc's. This perennial optimist believes that there's always money to be made out of sin and the US represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We shall see and the journey could well be fun and interesting. I suspect I'm not alone in this thinking. Willie Hill at £20 in 2022 would give me a big grin. Not being greedy, you understand!
Got burned here averaging down from £3 and stop lossed around 180p crystallizing a significant financial loss. That said always felt the business had potential so bought back in a three months ago and have enjoyed the ride thus far. Would I buy more in the hope of seeing £3 again? Not until Brexit sorted and some firm news on a bid but willing to hold.
I remember around 2 years ago a non-exec who was matey with the William Hill Chairman and he was saying that they would get bought out by a US business and suggested I buy at circa 3.10p at the time. At 1.50 i really wanted to dive in but have my cash tied up. This will almost certainly get bought by a US firm in the next few months and has been on the cards for a long time!!! I suspect a lot of the value is evaporating but still a good 20-30% to be made.
I would be happy with 235, But Brokers were already giving a price over 200.
I think we are sitting on a takeover target to be honest, we know that there was talks this year that broke down, so its only a matter of time, Lets face it WMH is the biggest well known name in the UK
The RNS states that Norges Bank sold some shares in WMH and that caused the SP to spike, So if anyone knows anything about Norges Bank which has a Pension fund holding i believe, But normally, If there is a sell, The price goes down.
Been checking the news all morning and nothing. I agree very unusual, this is one share I'm actually up on but not selling, as I've posted before "why no director buys"in the Last 3-4 months at all time lows. Just hope it keeps going in this direction.
