PHD getting undisclosed offers (plural) for takeover. The optimists will be looking at its last price before the drop, so 160p, pragmatists will be hoping to see 70p as a starter. I'll be happy if nothing happens for the first hour so I can guage the possibilities.
AST going to be the talking point, even if the sp does nothing. Everyone intrigued to know what Hutchinson's resignation will do for the company now!
The two I'm most interested in, one as a voyeur, the other as an investor at 49p.
Right now, it's a bit optimistic to be looking at its best historical price and be anticipating that... the interest comes from the fact that it's off those highs by 75% so just plain logic would dictate that split the difference and see that as the support line? No point any company buying this for top dollar as there'd be no incentive to complete. Can see this at 60-80pish in the short term but, until there's some opening bids it'd be tough to call the final price.
What you CAN say is that the bb will be full of over-reaching targets. Still, going to be higher than 41p and, as long as it's higher than 50p it's fine by me.
Interestingly, there isn't that much research on the advantages of polyhalite. I'm realtively new to SXX, having only been in from the placing drop so really only in for the rerate once the bonds go through (which I'm fairly confident about). But, whether it's because of the sparsity of mineral availability or something else, while the info that's published is positive, it's not overwhelmingly supported by, say, NFU or other agri bodies. I find it odd that such a signficant project, with huge cash tied to it isn't seen overwhelmingly as the saviour of increased production.
Is it just because of the lack of product? (Not fussed, either way, as bought on existing project and support from ii's and retail investors... just interested in how such a large project got traction so relatively easily.)
And one more thing, is there any opportunity for private investors to get in on the bond via an investement fund manager or similar as it feels more bankable than any ISA or similar while also supporting the sp. Would imagine £500mill would be easily reached with its guaranteed return status. So, anyone?
And apologies if these points are old discussion points.
There's as much chance of a fallback at 425p as there is of 383p not being the bottom. In fact, you're losing yourself just over 10% in profit in delaying.
I can't vouch for your statements about your holdings but, if I were seriously interested in averaging down and you say you're looking to buy 20,00 more (you ask some rather... simplistic questions generally, considering you're throwing about such large amounts) then at least buy 10,000 at monday's price and, if the price goes up you can add again at 425... if the price drops you can still add at 350p and youre average will be the same as if you waited. The whole point of adding is, presumably to drop the average so mad to throw away 10% waiting?
Under the current climate, as soon as we see a 10-20% rise, likely to see some selling so why not put yourself in that siautaition isntead of waiting for it to be visted on yourself?
Only good thing to say about stock market is that, eventually, even an ol' dog like MTRO finally gets some positivity and potnential.
or, at least, making it objectively neutral. Nowt to be gained by just replying and fuplicating their pishy post title.
Personally, while this may still drop a little further, i'm looking to add at any significant further lows. Won't bother if it's only 5% but anything harsher and I'll be adding. My average is already way down on the highs... never heards to force it down a little more. : )
It's not as if the chap hasn't thrown bucketloads into this already. Bought £100k's worth just last year... got 3 x as much today as the price he paid previously... that shows he's as surprised as anyone (doesn't excuse the faux pas but proves it's not BoD's playing the market).
Unless he's the worst judge of share price, this should be the bottom, in spite of the worst/best efforts of the shorters. Be interesting to see the press this weekend.
Looks like it was shot with Tim Burton's pyjama case and you wouldn't know it was for beds, not really. It's like flat Eric if it'd been mugged and then beaten with a pinhata stick!
Might be reverse psychology but I was, frankly, upset by the creepy thing. Can't see it doing much for mattress sales... duvets, maybe, to hide under... but not mattresses.
And what's with all these new mattress companies, anyway? How come they're suddenly like buses, with about 3 or 4 all advertising the same thing?
Weird, is what I call it!

Good weekend, all. ________________ U ____________________
They're like people who turn up after the ambulance have left and say 'that was an accident just waiting to happen'... 'course, none of them really guessed the current sp, neither.
I predict 470 somtime over the next month and 550 into the autumn. Get the new head in and move Hill to a quieter corner and I predict 650... suck on that, brokers (or give me a job!)
Those two are really struggling to let go of the cash, aren't they?
Bwtween a rock and a hard place, now. Thought they'd got away with an outrageous increase in salary and productivity bonus for... non-productivity from Mengo and now having a hard time converting it into shares.
C'mon, Sefton and Berwick, put their (investors') money where your mouth is... it'll be worth £1.00 soon so you'll make £1million for your £25,000 apiece... better than a bonus, eh!
Time to see the rns...
As long as investors aren't going to get the rerating that Bluerock will get by Monday!
Better hope that the BoD buy a million shares next week as the beginning of August starts cutting it fine. Hope you're reading this, Sefton!
as they spend their days posting stories that cover both rampy and derampy positions... so you can pick them to make either case. Seems a bit pointless but it gets them onto bbs like this.
But only the most nubie poster would bother referencing them as evidence of... erm... anything!
Still say there's going to be increasingly positive news coming out as soon as the roadshow kicks off formally.
I'd filter him... he's just like some child on a haribo sugar rush... according to his posts in the last week he's a bigger shareholder than Vernon. More likely owns as many as the dog!
Just makes the bb looks like amateur hour...
Had to add... just, had to. : )
Weekend news could well start laying out targets for new head of bank. If I can stop myself from selling on the first 10% jump, can see this bagging before end of year. Be a nice Christmas present to myself...
Everyone wants better flow rates asap but having to wait a few weeks for the oil to flow properly and cleanly is hardly a failure. Just incredibly silly traders looking for a two week turnaround in profits!
But it let me in so, i thank you. Happy to wait another few weeks for the results everyone was looking for and sold in frustration. Not often you see folk mug themselves!
Now the shocks are out the way, Hill's replacement is the big news to come. Banking hard hitter will stop the nonsensical news that dribbles out from the man with the glove pupper dog and reflect the successes of the retail banking side while firming up new plans for progress.
See these prices as relatively easy money if you want to hold it for more than a week.
agreed lang. Torys been hijacked by ERG. noone was worried about EU over-reach before the referendum. All the ills of the EU are actually successive UK govts relaxed about seeing the damaged parts of the UK fall into further disrepair. Funny how many infrstructure projects in those areas are part funded by EU... might be UK money being returned but they only fund the most derpived EU areas... what does that say about govt's stewardship of the whole country?
Brexit is just about holding the Tory party together and fu** the country... though it'll kill the Tories anyway. Only chance they have is to wave the Marxist bogeyman in poeple's faces: "we're sh** but at least we're not lefty trots... We'll only ruin the poor wheras they'll ruin everyone!"
Blame labour for letting a leather patched, corduroy-jacketed joy of sex illustration take control of their party:
Bloody miserable to be thinking about voting for Lib Dems because they haven't yet had the chance to prove that they'll be crap too
I'll move to Scotland once they get their independence! !
