    Who's getting out and why?

    Default Smart money leaving NZ

    Hi Whirly.
    I don't know who and I don't know if there are more than one player, but there has been some very big exits on the 9th and 10th.
    SKT wasn't the only share that got Phaedrus favourite indicator (OBV) dented to the point of triggering a warning sign
    These shares I've noticed with above the norm daily trading volume and there is probably more out there
    SKC..26 M traded on the 10th
    AIA....4 M traded on the 9th
    FBU...11M traded on the 9th
    TEL...70M traded on the 10th
    CEN...1.4M traded on the 9th
    TWR..0.8M traded on the 9th

    Where did this cashed up money go?
    From the NZ$ chart it seems it left NZ. The chart shows a primary uptrend break ...if that was smart money it certainly caused a gap down in the NZ$ index.
    Anyone know who it was exiting..a large fund institution heading for greener pastures or is there some dark economic clouds building ?

    hmmm, that doesn't ease my mind one bit. Well spotted Hoop. You can add FPA(7.5m) and NPX(1.1m) to your list of huge volume on those days.

    Shown here NZX index over past two years. These sell offs have happened sporadically but always preceding a downtrend. Index price is up since the selloff? Phaedrus, what's your take?

    Maybe Possum but there must also be people like me who have only recently graduated to Freeview from peasant tv, only to find that its the same old proverbial and then take up Sky for the sport and movies. I'm very pleased to hear they're busy promoting their products and raising awareness of all that's to come in 2011.

    Default SKT Chart.

    On SKT? Well, that big selloff is not the sort of thing that holders like to see and with some confirmation, it would qualify as a sell signal...... but there isn't any. In fact, SKT has just given a Bullish divergence as shown in the attached chart. Look, too, at the last candlestick. SKT opened at $5.17, was sold down to $5.13 (right on the trendline) and then solid buying kicked in, taking it all the way up to $5.25 where it closed at the high of the day. This augers well for next week, particularly in view of the fact that stocks are often sold down on Fridays by short-term traders unwilling to hold over the weekend.
    Price plot and OBV signals often confirm each other, giving reasonably reliable buy/sell signals. When they disagree, as is the case here, it is usually best to do nothing. In other words, SKT remains a Hold.

    Thanks very much Phaedrus. My stops are at 509 so yep still holding.

    I will now have a look at the NZSX - good news thread to see if you or any others have an opinion on the sell off across the market last weak.

    Cheers

    Default SKY's monopoly under threat?

    The combination of today's Stuffs news article and the new TV's being network/ internet capable you can now appreciate the reasoning why SKY is serious this time around to relaunch it's online Sky On Demand facility called iSKY ...sky subscribers can sign up here at this link https://www.skytv.co.nz/skyid/signin...2Fmyaccount%2F

    Disc: no affiliation with SKY and don't have SKT shares


    UFB could broadcast 500 TV channels



    TOM PULLAR-STRECKER - BusinessDay.co.nz Last updated 05:00 20/12/2010


    Broadcasting Minister Jonathan Coleman said the Government could use existing legislation to stop Sky TV from monopolising television delivered over the ultrafast broadband (UFB) network in the "unlikely" event that became an issue.
    Crown Fibre Holdings said the UFB network would include an analogue "radio frequency overlay" channel, in addition to the two channels needed to carry downstream and upstream internet traffic. It said the channel would be capable of carrying at least 500 television channels.
    Unlike existing bandwidth-hungry IPTV-based internet television services, RF overlay would allow television channels to be broadcast over fibre without eating up internet bandwidth. It could eventually make satellite dishes and UHF aerials redundant for television viewers in towns and cities. However, Sky chief executive John Fellet said prices for RF overlay overseas were "terribly expensive" and its main interest might be in using it to reach the likes of apartment buildings and sites where satellite dishes were discouraged or impractical.
    John Nixon, managing director of Optical Network Engineering and an expert in the technology, said broadcasters were likely to use a mix of RF overlay-over-fibre, digital terrestrial and satellite services to broadcast channels to customers, while using IPTV – also delivered over fibre – for video-on-demand and interactive content.
    Dr Coleman said there was a scenario in which a "broadcaster with deep pockets, Sky, could take up the capacity of RF overlay", but that was pretty unlikely. "If that happened, you have already got the Telecommunications Act and the Commerce Commission."
    Mr Nixon said capacity issues were unlikely to constrain competition, especially as it would be possible to add additional RF channels.
    Freeview chief executive Sam Irvine said the "big issue" would be if telecommunications companies retailing the UFB network had exclusive relationships with pay-television providers that did not allow them to provide their own content, so the only content going over the RF overlay was Sky's. "That then raises all sorts of questions because the payback of the UFB network is video content, and you need consumer choice and innovation to develop that."
    Mr Fellet said it would not constrain telcos' ability to independently source content that it could not buy on their behalf.

    A good interim result from SKT.

    NPAT at $60m, up 19%.

    Increased divvy of 8cps.

    Incidentally, despite continuing tough conditions, isn't it encouraging to see so many NZ companies doing a bit better this year? FBU, NZR, STU and SKT for starters.

    Doesn't seem to be much recognition or discussion, so far!

    "The improved financial results can be attributed to both the continuing success of the MySKY HDi decoder "

    Which contrasts with TEL and TVNZ foray into Tivo which has major problems with sales volumes and now the potential loss of EPG data via Hybrid. MySki HDi looking more attractive once this news gets through. (though they really need to look at the useless www.myskyhdi.co.nz website. You could die from boredom waiting for it to load.

    Tivo was doomed due to the why they tried to distribute it. It should be on the shelves in Noel Leeming where the VCR's use to sit - Tivo is a cheaper (depending on the deal) and better verson of the other Freeview recorders Noels is trying to sell. [edit - if they put a commission on it to incentive staff, every tv that went out the door to a non skytv househould would have had a tivo box with it.]

    Skys distribution is great and they have a real incentive to do so as they get recurring revenue from it.

    At $360 on $10 a month Tivo was a great deal - better than My Sky HDi at $15 a month and better than a terrestrial freeview box and PVR put together. Just goes to show how useless TEL and TVNZ are (as they continue to erode shareholder value) - but leaves SKT to keep working that market to shareholder benefit.

    Cool SKT Takeover?

    Just my theory but as News limited is rumoured to have been rejected by the regulators in Australia for Foxtel to make a full takeover of Austar, maybe they might be keen to mop up the 40%ish they don't own of SKT.

    Good cross rate to convert AUD to NZD for the takeover, they will probably have to offer around $7 per share with a sweetener on top to secure.

    Just as SKT is starting to turn in some good profits, great subscriber base, amazing monopoly business..perfect time to pounce on the juicy target. In my hairbrained opinion of course...
