RE: 120p to be tested again this week....12 Apr 2021 00:50
Just to remind people, pre-covid our average for this month would be £3 judging by the last 4 years. Naturally under current conditions i'll be happy with a discount to between 150 to 200p @ circa 40%, working our way back up to over 300 by next year June.

Thanks Bonkers mate, but i'm still waiting for this elusive chart work to back-up his post.. I doubt we'll ever see one, maybe he just likes pronouncing basic shapes to sound intelligent,... I wonder would a trapezoid blow his mind? lmao

Here's an opinion for you... it's free to make a chart, so why don't you go and make one showing the descending triangle, as it seems you've become suddenly apt at deriving information from such mediums and then post the link to the chart for all of us to see your work/research!
... held back this morning I see.. Gross manipulation by market makers to help the big boys. There's absolutely no reason for us to be lulling around at this sp, shows that shares are being transferred from one body to another or a large buy order being still filled.
I'm also in IAG which is doing well despite air corridors are a 'no-go' and no finality on when they'll re-open. FT100 is up 63 points, (0.92%, as I type), yet we are 1% in the red lol..Even tho business to a large extent has started across the pond.... sheer manipulation
Too many variables to play with atm...yes/no to traffic light systems, European countries who haven't got their act together and are in further lockdowns....LFT's , Vacs plan...and more!
The question is that if you're looking for a quick buck...not gona happen, at the moment I'm here for the longer term because, when-ever it does achieve "Wheels up" for International travel, the share price will be in a much better territory. There's just too many "ifs" and "Buts" at the moment, and BJ seems to be just wanting a pub to be open, so he can have a pint.
Got a fair few shares in here and Cine... But the way i'm looking at getting the economy working again are for starting the cogs turning from the inside working out. So retail, (basically 'National'), then international. Took a small position in pharma for LFT's which seems like a bummer now considering BJ may have opted for outside help rather than within the UK itself. Also have oil stocks, PFC especially...but that's a longer recovery play. C'est la vie!
Warner Bros has scored the biggest US box office hit of the pandemic with Godzilla vs Kong, which sold $48.5m in tickets in its debut over the Easter holiday — an encouraging sign for Hollywood as it looks to jump-start business after a year in the doldrums.
Hollywood executives had hoped the franchise film, in which the oversized sea monster battles with the giant ape, could make between $20m and $30m. Godzilla vs Kong brought in $32m over the weekend and $48.5m during the extended five-day Easter holiday period.
The better results suggest there is pent up demand for the big-budget action flicks that movie studios have largely held back from releasing during the pandemic.
More than 90 per cent of US cinemas have reopened, according to Warner Bros, although they are operating at reduced capacity to meet social-distancing guidelines.
Godzilla has easily beaten other pandemic-era films, such as Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, which scored $20m in its debut weekend in September, when New York and Los Angeles cinemas remained closed and with little Covid-19 vaccine hope in sight.
But the film’s returns remain a far cry from the money brought in before the coronavirus halted moviegoing. Disney’s Pixar film Onward made $90m at the domestic box office during the March 6-8 weekend in 2020, just before the virus took hold of the US. Over the February 14 President’s Day weekend last year, Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog earned $164m.
Legendary Entertainment is distributing Godzilla vs Kong in China, where it debuted with a $70m take-up last weekend. While cinemas in the US and Europe have remained largely empty until now, China’s box office has recovered sharply as movie attendance has returned to nearly normal levels
The success of Godzilla vs Kong is a victory for the cinema chains and Hollywood studios, which have lost billions of dollars in the past year, leading to bankruptcy for the Alamo Drafthouse theatre operator.
It also brings confidence that crowds will still go to cinemas to watch films even if they are available online, as more Hollywood conglomerates use movies to attract subscribers to their streaming services. Godzilla vs Kong was available to watch on Warner’s HBO Max streaming service from Wednesday.
In a move that infuriated some filmmakers last year, Warner Bros decided to release all of its 2021 movies on HBO Max on the same day they debut in cinemas.
Nolan lashed out at the decision, telling the Hollywood Reporter: “Our industry’s biggest filmmakers and most important movie stars went to bed the night before thinking they were working for the greatest movie studio and woke up to find out they were working for the worst streaming service.”
Never gona happen IMO, you think Boris will let mass gathering in pubs, regardless they're wearing masks yet force cinema goer's to present a vac cert/passport before entering? Nope.. U have more chance of controlling cinema patrons than you have with pub attendees... Firstly, intoxication increases with more time you spend in a pub, and therefore relaxing of rules, whereas as staff seat Cinema patrons on social distance planning wearing masks. It's a more controlled environment.
Aaaaah, the safety of hiding behind a keyboard, they relish in it. I've always said that for basic membership they should charge £1 for the year on this site, paid by credit card so that their details are registered. This anonymity these fools hide behind lets them post nonsense with accumulated posts which clogs the bb, because they're enticing unnecessary posting by investors.
Sometimes it feels like LSE encourages this malice behaviour... as they seem to do nowt about it.
