RE: How many option shares did you get?15 Mar 2021 09:41
I just got my shares, applied for the max 2500ish I was offered and got them all, but you are only 18 shares off the max. I’ve been in since 130 last March so decided to sell and enjoy taking the profit! Might well be back but I’ll certainly be supporting MAB with the vouchers I just got, GLA :-)
RE: anyone had their stock allocation yet?12 Mar 2021 20:47
Same here. HL does seem to be going downhill. Now has no broker ratings for each share, no trade data either - was told both were only temporarily absent as the data supplier was being changed, think they were being economical with the truth.
Agree with you on pub shares, I’m in quite heavily since March. My selling MAB and buying a fraction back at 210p just seems like an interesting opportunity. Can’t see all the capital raise as priced in fully at this stage but we’ll see.
It does encourage people to sell and I suspect the buyers would be Odyzean. They avoided a takeover and choose this method instead, investors will also take the opportunity for a quick profit with allocated shares too.
From mbplc.com it seems to me that it is your holding on the 19th feb that is used to determine the allocation you get, even though this is scheduled for next week. I’m surprised by that but it’s there in black and white. DYOR but I’ve sold most of my holding and I’ll apply for my full allocation hoping the SP remains above 210p (might do some estimates on that first!)
I mean selling my holding now at 310 taking my profit and then taking up the offer to buy the smaller fraction offered at 210, then selling soon after at some price over 210(assuming it is) and moving on from mab. The profit from this could come by holding but it seems easier this way and seeking other opportunities. Hence this way increases the holding of the companies seeking a takeover without paying a much higher price.
I’m used to RIs where you can sell the rights but here there is no such option. As I held MAB on the 19th I qualify but won’t the SP just move down towards 210p now? Why not sell my shares and take up the offer at 210p? I’m not keen on LTH now as this is now a takeover without the big rise imo.

If we’ve vaccinated 14m and still can’t open up pubs etc by April then what’s the point of the vaccinations? By April 30m+ will have had the jab so the downward pressure on covid is only increasing from here. Roll on normality.

Our restrictions on foreign travel and those coming to the UK have been the weakest part of our response- only now are the government thinking this is a good idea and overreacting saying the maximum penalty is 10yrs for non-compliance. Unbelievable.
