Bravo, sir. I don’t wish losses on anyone. But - as they say - as long as the fundamentals are there, it’s a question of how long you hold for. I’ve got concerns about TUI, for sure, but I do think they’ll come through this well and recover strongly. I’m lucky enough not to need to liquidate anything - yet - we will see what EON decide to Shock us with first….

Sub £1? Your market acumen / clairvoyance doesn’t appear to have helped you here… 71p average, and a bag holder! You even have the temerity to complain about sentiment on twitter and these boards… breathtaking hypocrisy.
I hope you make your money back, but don’t go deramping on here and then whining about it elsewhere. Own what you do.

GDR like so many are just MM's play things to make money on. Fundementals don't go far anymore.
Sentiment thanks to boards like this and Twitter are easy to drive by even just one poster for others to throw their agreed opinions in.
This board are cleaver and not the bit slightest concern for the long term holders. When THEY need to they will promote the company, probably have loop holes to stay legal to make from rise and falls (not fact, just my opinion)
Think I just need to switch off from looking for rest of this week.
The wait continues, best of luck all suffering long term holders.”
Monkey pox? Ffs, a total non-event. The existing smallpox vaccine (which eradicated that) works. Vaccination centres are popping up across the U.K. now: the media are having a field day but there’s no evidence of an epidemic here at all.
Heathrow are asking airlines not to sell any more summer tickets. I know TUI have no presence at Heathrow, but I’d say it’ll have a knock-on effect.
The bottlenecks in the airports and the accompanying stories in the media are without doubt the biggest influence on this share right now. Nothing but stories of airport hell. But it doesn’t reflect the true situation with passenger numbers, bookings and satisfied holidaymakers in any way.
When the airport mess is resolved - and it will be, recruiting fiercely - then we’ll stop seeing those stories and IMO the sentiment will pick up.
Any catalyst from TUI itself in terms of earnings will probably be short lived, until those stories stop.
Conspiracy theories about “a force” don’t help. Irrelevant comments about private jets don’t help. (Seriously?!) Downward pressure is all about cost of living crisis emerging, risk-off attitude and media hysteria around airport issues.
Market isn’t rigged. The media are enjoying pushing out a constant diet of anxiety-inducing stories about rare issues with flights and airports, particularly TUI ones. Never *any* indication of what %age they are of daily flights or number of holidaymakers serviced per day.
The media in the U.K. are fearmongering idiots, profiteering from emotional manipulation. It’s corrosive and sick.
Masaimara - ffs… jet2 revenue 2019, around 3.14B. Tui, around 5B.
Jet2 are smaller. Demand is huge, but TUI have more supply. I doubt your ability to give any useful information on here if this simple comparison eluded you in a desperate bid to shore up your rather weak arguments.
I’ve been averaging down for around 2 years now, having bought in early in the pandemic and taken up both RIs. Averaged down last week hoping we’d see something like a £2 floor for a while - that went well…
I guess catalysts are what we need now. Results, bookings, stats and profits. Hold and see what happens…
No regrets, this is a recovery play and it appears the recovery has been postponed until after a recession… c’est la vie, I have time, and I don’t invest money I need quickly.
Todays bounce persuaded me there’s merit in average by down a little, so now I’m sitting on top of a slim loss.
TUI aren’t about to go under. The level of govt support says volumes about the importance of the business on a national level in Germany.
Pent up demand is huge, cancellations are - in the main - caused by issues with ground handling staff. Recruitment will pick up, headlines make govts and govt agencies look bad (waiting months for an airside pass will get better).
