Trending this week
As the value of the pound drops foreign companies see value in purchasing British companies. Last week was the turn of ARM Holdings this week SABMiller was the target. Early on this week AB InBev has made a final offer for the takeover of SABMiller of 4500p per share up from the previous offer of 4400p. This represents £79Billion and a partial offer for the shares. Later on the board has backed a new offer of £104billion for the company and will ask its shareholders to vote in favour of the takeover. This represents over 5000p per share a lot higher than the ‘final offer’ earlier this week.
Are you a holder? Do you see value in the takeover offer? Would you be happy with a different offer on the table? Let us know and comment via #lstsab (Lse Share Talk sab) and tag me in @slarratt1
Cloud TAG (CTAG)
In the earlier part of the week social Media was waiting with baited breath on news to come in relation to Cloudtag. Large purchase trades reported were adding fuel to those commentating. Mid week still the hopes and expectations were high as followers of the share were hoping to see their share price towards the years highs. Following the recent rises is it a good entry point for new investors? What are your hopes and expectations? What deal do you think will land first? What will be the potential outcomes?

Lloyds released their first half yearly report this week and announced a dividend payment. This got a vast amount of people talking about what the best plan of action is going forward, after recent drops due to Brexit there was still uncertainty as to if the current share price represented value. The government previously bought their shares circa 75p during the bailouts so will want a return on that investment. With a profit of £4.2 billion and with the dividend starting, does this represent a good entry point over what has been a few difficult years for Lloyds? What is the potential downside versus the potential upside?

Sound Energy plc (SOU)
I covered sound energy on last weeks ‘Steve Shares’ and again it has continued to be a hot topic across social media, groups have been debating about the recent results from Sound Energy Plc and their projects in Morocco. The share price matched the sentiment in the stock and has hit new highs on Wednesday. On Friday several investors met with the management team in London and were in high spirits upon leaving the meeting where volume picked up and buys came flooding in and hit a 52 week high.
If you are invested or interested in SOU please comment via #lstsou tag me in @slarratt1 (Lse Share Talk sou) and let everyone know your thoughts on up and coming news and what your hopes and expectations are. What are your targets and time scales? Is it a long term hold for you or a traders paradise?
Forte Energy (FTE)
It has been a turbulent time for Forte Energy holders the shares have been suspended since last December until last week. A victim of the downturn in the mining sector their uranium assets have not attracted potential partners so have a potential deal in place to become a technology based company. What are you views hopes and aims with the new direction the company is heading towards? Let me us know at #lstfte ( Lse Share Talk Fte) tag me in @slarratt1
My thought of the week
I said about all of the doom and gloom last week surrounding the media, so it is nice to see lots of takeover offers coming into the UK from distant shores. Most of countries reported that in a post Brexit world that “we would fail.” With most of these offers on the table do you think that British interests are worth more than their current take over values?
