BT.A (BT.A)     

washlander - 24 Nov 2003 17:16

If Bt has bought back 2million 5 thousand shares to day. How come it shows on trades as a sell?


little woman - 24 Nov 2003 17:40 - 2 of 714

Because of the price. These were bought below the sell price - which was very kind of Merrill Lynch to get them!

All shares sold are buys elsewhere - they get recorded according to price.

If the price is below the mid price they are recorded as a sell, and above the mid price they are recorded as a buy.

The 176.198p looks like the mean or median days price, ML were probably picking stock up for BT all day.
Anyway, I think it's a wise move for BT.A to buy in at these prices - Good long term investment below 2 IMO.

Interested in BT as in other telecoms, but I would like to see the current downtrend levelled off before going in on this one. As to the share repurchase I think this is particularly good for BT, and other companies buying back stock cum dividend as the stock repurchased is then absolved from the dividend payment and those funds staying in the company, could be however that BT made their repurchase a little too soon as it looks technically like the share price could dip to 155/160p. Anyone with similar views?

The telecom sector in general is doing better the BT how come. I have been away for a few days in the States and read an interesting article on fixed lines and how they are threatened by internet phone companies. Anyone read that?

washlander - 17 Dec 2003 09:07 - 8 of 714

BT is puzzeling me. Further to my no.6 posting, there has been nothing but good news from BT. However the price is still stagnant. BT have also released a statement last weekend to say that they are now going head to head with the IT companies as far as offering internet phone services. This is an area for the future and will further threaten fixed line companies. This proves beyond a doubt that BT can no longer be classed as a utility.
Have I missed something. I would appreciate thoughts on this.
Thanks in advance.

I don't think that you can read much into it at the moment.

Everything seems to be range trading as the FTSE drifts
around between 4320 and 4400.

I don't think that there will be much movement until
the FTSE takes on a direction. Until then it will just
range up and down with the FTSE.

FTSE won't move much until the US decides to show its
colours. There's a lot of recovery already priced into
the US markets, any disappointment and it will sell off.

Now what has kicked BT.A into life today?

daves dazzlers - 05 Nov 2004 16:23 - 11 of 714

You tell me,i thought it was all negative press at the mo.

brianboru - 07 Nov 2004 20:09 - 12 of 714

What a shame!
I was a fan and shareholder of BT with it's strong cash flow and excellent policy of increasing the dividend each year. Seems now though they're about to embark on a billion dollar adventure across in the USA. They'll be almost the first UK company not to get their fingers badly burnt when expanding into the States if it is a success but anyway I have a rule of selling any UK stock that goes down that avenue. Pity, as I said, I was a big fan at these prices.
