Merger Frenzy To Boost Share Prices

Recommended Posts

It appear the bankers will be relieved for a bit, we are having major merger talk. No doubt whispers will already be starting over who will be next to merge launch a takeover bid.

So are we are going to have a huge rally on the back of this?

The City loves a good merger / takeover gets the stocks shooting up.

there are whispers that this marathon market will go all curly wurly. I think it looks a bit flakey.

Orange and T Mobile are now in merger talks.

The companies also said today that by cutting overlapping operations, they can generate cost savings of £3.5 billion. Orange employs 13,000 staff in the UK and T-Mobile has 6,500 UK workers.

A boost to the jobless recovery.

More of the same. When the economy is contracting in real terms (and will do so now for decades as the growth part has been handed to Asia). The only way to boost profits now for some of these entities now is to cut jobs, and try and eek a virtual monopoly position in what is left.

Mobile is an interesting one, most mobile calls are made in built up areas, these are areas that will be serviced increasingly by wireless broadband, so if handset manufacturers get a move on you will be able to select something like wireless VOIP or use GSM. Probably one of the reasons why mobile companies want to edge in on the fixed line market too.

This is very much like 2007 were they bought 2000 point on the DOW (and consequently the World markets) by pumping and spreading rumours of M&A that never happened. People have sufficiently short memories that it is likely to work again. This will give the market "free points" it can afford to loose in the next leg down.

Unfortunately for the market managers as with bubbles each of the manipulated movements become shorter and smaller and they can only do it for this early phase of the crash.

Don't get sucked into the autumn pump and dump exercise folks!

Loads of retail investors put in their ISA savings in March/April. The city boys then send the market up over the summer (with newsflow about mergers, new oilfields etc etc) so that they can harvest the retail money in Sept/Oct in order to boost their Christmas bonuses.

Don't be a dummy or you'll get harvested too.

I own this book published in 1985.

Perhaps we are entering a new bull market for stocks - speculation arises over companies that are suitable take over targets. We all have a feeling there's massive amounts of cash sitting on the sidelines, waiting to be unleashed. This will be highly inflationary.

Is yesterday's news with Cadbury the beginning? How to participate in the casino - Take over targets, their share price rise, whilst the company instigating the take over typically falls.
