So how many people have committed to sell? How much are these people (who are they? The illuminati?) actually going to make?
Who is Rico in league with?

Germany!!

They had to issue the warning of they would be HEAVILY fined for misleading investors and the city. But they DIDN'T need to issue it at this time. It STINKS and it feels like it was DELIBERATELY done to screw posties even more. I think that a lot of posties will be asking **BRING BACK MOYA** in the months ahead. He is going to pick a fight with the union and try and break it to run RM like GLS with crap wages and conditions. :thumbdown

If they had waited until after the potential sell off of around 10% of the company to issue a profit warning they would probably have ended up in the dock.

The question is why wasn't the warning given before the pre-election process started?

Don't think Rico really knows or appreciates that WE DELIVER LETTERS TOO! And have to do it everywhere 6 days a week. He was fine at GLS but we are a totally different kettle of fish. People called Moya and I don't agree with her renumeration however I'd sooner have her in charge still.

Royal Mail shares closed tonight at 355p ish.

Some stockbrokers are saying the shares are now worth 225p-250p max and say the Royal mail business model is finished.

Markets are markets and can fluctuate.Anyone giving 2 weeks notice to sell their shares in advance is simply mad especially as the decision is irreversible.

What I find strange is the large fluctuations in Share price since the launch , recently they were in demand hence a rising price albeit well under the price I sold my Sharesave shares .
Now a few WTL videos saying all about selling , slot of people know nothing of how Shares work and will sell for an easy life .
I smelt something rotten an now a profits warning ....
I'm keeping mine and investing in the new share deal .
I've made a few quid on RM and other shares and expect to do so here over the long term
Don't we still deliver more parcels than the rest put together ?

Parcels are on the up yes but market very competitive and under real pricing pressure.

Letters are in terminal decline.

Royal Mail are ex growth now.

Dividend could easily come under threat. if that is cut the shares will sink much further.

Also Marxist Corbyn could easily re-nationalise at a very low price.

Very risky share.

I don't think it was done deliberately to screw posties over, more that RM used the posties as an added bonus. An announcement like that is always good for dropping the price but if there is a surge in selling because of the posties then the price will really drop, essentially mimicking a crash where investors start to sell a ship that is sinking.

You were warned that it would probably be the worse time to sell. Your choice , you live with it I'm afraid, that's the stock markets for you. Every company issuing profit warnings ATM are getting hammered.
I could take any normal fluctuation but our own chief executive providing the hammer blow at the worse possible moment is hard to take. Share increase over whole year wiped out. Add to that the cuts that will follow and the absolute awful pay agreement we will get next time will hurt. They will be back for sick leave and allowances to get back on track

Seems to me that, given the last set of reported results were months ago, Directors of Royal Mail are at best, foolish, and at worst incompetent. Issuing a glossy invitation booklet, to sell your free shares (with no option to change the decision) without first checking whether there was any material financial change in the company’s financial position is unbelievably dumb.

This applies just as much if they’d issued a positive note, stating that profits were on-track to beat previous forecasts. People who’d already committed to sell would be equally irritated had that scenario resulted in a jump in the share price!
With the constant daily focus on costs, resources meetings etc, they seriously only knew in the last few days that cost-savings were only going to be less than half of those predicted?
I’m not one for conspiracy theories, but....
Has our new Chief Exec been inspired by the movie The Hudsucker Proxy ??

Are we about to have difficult times?

'Royal Mail itself didn’t sound sure. It is “assessing” the pay and pensions deal it agreed with the Communication Workers Union in February to see what is possible. In the meantime, it will “pull every short-term lever” – whatever that means.'

Never read such nonsense in all my life. I read on another thread somebody saying the shares will fall below 1.00 :crazy: whether we like it or not and regardless of how they treat us this is still a company making 500+ million per year who owns land worth fortunes around the uk and has an infrastructure that gazumps any competitor tenfold. Wait till after christmas when they announce bumper profits and they are back up at mid 4/5 :thumbup

Momo

You are missing the point entirely.

Royal Mail plc is now ex growth. Profits have peaked. No productivity gains.

Letters in terminal decline and parcels growing but under severe pricing pressure.

Have no doubt there will be more profit warnings.

Divi will be cut and sub 100p will happen.

The future is bleak (not my words but some stockbrokers also)

as soon as we get to 15th oct I am out.

"bumper profits at xmas" ??? LOL Go check the broker forecast fella. profits will be £100-£150 LESS than last year. That is all you need to know as to wee RM plc is going.

Also real danger of re-nationalisation with Corbyn in power and he won't be paying anything over 100p mark my words.

How to dump the share price.

06 Oct 2018, 18:45

mark my words.


Why?, they're simplistic drivel.
If it were that easy to predict the path of share prices we would all make a fortune shorting. Rather than waste your (and our) time on here why don't you put your money where your mouth is and short Royal Mail at £3.45, you'll have plenty of takers and you can convince yourself that you're the only sane person in the asylum.
