The latest excitements at BT Group

Whilst we wait for the Bank of England to (sensibly) raise interest rates for the second time since December, the global corporate results season aggressively continues. Whilst I will ignore the volatility in the Meta (aka Facebook) share price dump overnight as I have never invested in the stock, one I do know about is BT Group (BT.A) whose share price is down over 3% today to under a 190p price as I write. So how do I feel about this stock?


Don’t worry, be happy BT shareholders

I am a bit more concentrated today on the Formula 1 final race of the year (it has been an epic championship in my opinion), but a few share related thoughts.  I read in today’s newspapers that the ‘BT chief in summit with ministers over threat of takeover by French raider’.  It certainly has been an excitable last few years for BT Group (BT.A) shareholders.  But you never ever worry about a takeover. 


Today obviously is not ‘Cyber Monday’! Still...interesting potential BT news

Consistent with my musings yesterday, life in the markets remains excitable although at least today we are seeing an increase after those big losses on Friday. All good fun which any experienced investor has seen much more than once before. Nevertheless I do find it interesting that Friday was the fourth largest volatility index increase since 1990. No doubt a few of you remember all of the excitements back in February 2007, February 2018 and January last year, even before we mention July 1990 and November 1991. Stuff happens...especially on a day such as ‘Black Friday’. Live with it if you are an investor. So what about ‘Cyber Monday’ then?


Nice to see BT shares back above 150p...and more to come

Back in June I observed that BT Group (BT.A) might have been floated in the 1980s but if you have been holding shares since then it has not exactly been a fantastic run. The company is having to change along with the world of telecommunications and I hold some shares because - in my opinion - the CEO Philip Jansen may have a good idea or two. The trouble is evolving a business can take time and cost a lot of money.


Hello the new BT Chairman

I read in today’s press that ‘British Telecom (BT.A) has picked the former chief executive of Royal Mail (RMG) and ITV (ITV) to be its new chairman...Adam Crozier is expected to resign as chairman of the online fashion retailer Asos (ASC)  to focus on the role, although he is tipped to stay on as chairman of Whitbread (WTB)’.  How exciting!
