Someone is playing tricks with the share price - down over 3p - must be great value at this price. Apart from very negative D. B reports everything else points to a very large progressive company getting back on track, to pay down debt and control the pension deficit issue. I will have to put some of my KCOM funds into BT when they arrive . Have held BT shares for a very long time so have seen the ups (not sold) and downs (bought a few more) .
500,000 @ 116p wow! Someone knows something big is about to happen. hold onto your hats and your KCOM shares. I sold 1/3 of mine about 2 weeks ago at 112. (happy with that decision though - correct at the time). good luck lth's.
in 2018 KCOM went ex dividend on the 21st June. My assumption (unless told otherwise) is the cash offer will include the final dividend being paid to holders prior to completion. If this is the case, to me, it is worth hanging onto the shares. In the past it was often worth the wait for a cash offer to be completed as there were no dealing costs, but these are not as significant these days. If we are not going to get the final divi. and it looks as if there is not going to be a rival bid then to sell would be a better option, to the money working sooner.
the 40,000 at 5.11 was a buy. I still believe the science will convert to a business - after successful trials - BUT there are no guarantees. If the scientists can't run the business it will be taken out by a larger pharma. co. but at a substantial discount to its potential. Take care - it is not gilt edged.
I like your style helx! Let us just hope at some point an acceptable plan to take us forwards is put in place. That goes for CNA as well!!! To me it shows how people who push to take responsibility misuse that responsibility and do not in any way understand the affect they have on so many others. One invests in a company expecting the employees to do their best from the lowest paid through to top management. We are being let down - and it is not the receptionist or the engineers who are letting us down. Leaving with a payoff would be the last straw. What is the company worth - on paper - more than a pound, without an updated and sensible business plan and with Conn man staying in post. Probably much less than a pound. Take care.
buy at a £1?? it is effectively already at a £1. Todays low £1.11 minus dive 8.5p gives £1.025 . Fill your boots?? Difficult to know - buy of the decade or good money after bad? However I think the catalyst for success needs discussion, this BB has started to address some issues but has never formulated a consolidated list. I do not know all the company details to do this but with help I will write a letter, but what do I put? Language would be sweetened and not confrontational as my second comment. Mr Conn must move on - his decision no compensation. The new CEO taken on on a lower salary but with a sensible but not ott incentive scheme. Conversations with off-**** to pull the plug on their crazy way of creating an unlevel business model. But then what? I say nuclear should be part of the model, others say not. What should the business model be?? Ideas please.
close of play Friday above 260p. It is due a re-rate and the main man will want to shine with this update. Massive restructuring to be announced and an increased dividend! There you have it or perhaps 260 is not being optimistic enough. Ok make that 280 - final answer 280.
The results indicate steady progress only, I hope the R and D dept has something big in the pipeline!! One for the back burner I think. . Perhaps a white knight will come charging along and take us over! Take care.
ex. dividend day today, to be paid early Feb. I thought the share should always drop by the dividend amount on ex divi day. Not with KCOM it would seem! I didn't buy more in the high 50's I hope others did to achieve the bonus of capital growth and income.
Any news from admin lunatic? Their reply would be of interest. It does look as if normal trade reporting has resumed today. A 50% increase in the SP would be helpful with KCOM - the future must surely give a higher share price, it remains a good company and with new man at the helm I remain hopeful and confident.
what the 'f'' is going on every trade this am is supposedly for 950 shares, what 950 shares. Is a code for can I buy / sell 950 shares!!! Unless it is employees selling / buying their share allotment - yes that could be it. Any thoughts??
