I spoke to my broker earlier. He is very very bearish of Royal Mail shares. He expects them to fall below 100p.

When the shares were 600p he said they were way overvalued.

He was 100% correct.

He now says they are going sub 100p

When the shares were 600p my dog knew they were overvalued.
We would be bought out and broken up long before the shares reached 100p.

At £1 the shares would be way undervalued, has he been on the sauce? I’d get a new broker pretty sharpish!

Matt

When the shares were 600p people said they were undervalued.

They then sank to 215p

The business model is a busted flush. No productivityu gains. Huge margin pressure.

What was your intention of starting this thread?

Given many colleagues still hold shares, and given the drop yesterday before results, such a post could well have the effect of panicking colleagues who have held shares for over 5 years to part with them prematurely.

I don't believe you have a broker.....

He is correct that the business model is busted. Think about it. What is going up? Packets. What take a load longer to sort, transport and deliver? Packets. Are margins huge? No. So a product that is on the up takes a shed load more wages to deliver but competition in that area is so fierce that the profit margins are tiny.
I've come to this conclusion as the busier we appear to be, the less profit we seem to make. And I can't see a way round it. Oh yeah, we have to deliver letters too. Even if the volume of letters drops it still takes longer to go to more houses (that are being built) with less mail per house. Don't forget van share time wasted. How many times do you and your partner get back to van exactly the same time? All those 2,3,4,5 mins one is waiting, add them up x130000 posties. That's some time wasted. In short, we don't work as a profit making business.

No one said they were undervalued when they were 600p

They said they were undervalued at the 300 odd p they were when we were first privatised but never at 600p

Based on the property and land Royal Mail has alone a fair price is about 450p

Hi Rambo, I respectfully disagree. Turnover has increased and attention on the areas that are affecting the bottom line are being addressed (productivity). I thought it was a fairly positive statement, maintaining div and setting out div going forward to prevent speculation prior to next years statement. Parcel sorting machines were mentioned and increased automation to combat some of the factors you mentioned. I know we have all been here before but you have got to give the CEO a chance he's only been in post for 5 minutes and previous record is good. Besides, you may well turn out to be correct, but to be honest its the tone and nature of the post of the other bloke that grated, and not your reasoned argument which I can appreciate comes from an honest place having followed your posts previously.

How many years did RM lose money during the nineties, god willing that doesn't happen now because I highly doubt we would get a bail-out like the bankers did.

I started this thread to debate the shares falling below 100p.

Not panicking anyone.

I have not advised anyone to sell.

Merely pointing out what my broker has told me.

When the shares were 600p some brokers had target prices of £10. FACT. How wrong were they ?

Can someone explain to a humble postie what drives the share price?I always thought it was supply and demand so cannot get my head around why if more shares were bought than sold it dropped so much?

It is mainly on past or future performance but also indications of future performance it does not help when some one is hell bent on driving the price down so he can acquire the business at rock bottom by issuing statements that are fiction maybe Mr Back can correct my assessment of the facts but what the hell does he care!

The main reason RMG is currently so low is due to a very concerted effort by a number of financial institutions acting in unison to ''short'' the stock.

This is a very dubious and opaque practice and is actually illegal in many other countries stock markets.

To that ,but I’ve been saying to people that still have full amount , they will never go to £3 again,£2.50/£2.75 , stop paying managers bonus would save money for a start

I am not an investor type person so I had to google shorting.

Hopefully this explains what it is

Shorting, or short-selling is when an investor borrows shares and immediately sells them, hoping he or she can scoop them up later at a lower price, return them to the lender and pocket the difference.
