RE:RE:RE:RE:RE:Majority ownership at 44% ownership???

If any of the large institutional shareholders balk at this ,I think you will see BCE through in the next quarter dividend as a kinda 2% top up. They always leave some on the table so they can make us...read more

RE:RE:Majority ownership at 44% ownership???

Add BA insiders to BCE's 44% and you'll likely tip over 50%.  This deal seems to be solid.  rate and reply

RE:Majority ownership at 44% ownership???

Legally your understanding is correct, but a lot of minor shareholders don't form groups to exercise their rights. This situation is similar to Harper acting as if he's a majority govt. when in fact a...read more

Majority ownership at 44% ownership???

Why do they say that BCE has control of BA. My understanding is that they are trying to buy the 56% that they do not own. Yes they are by far the largest shareholder but it has always been my...read more

Pension Managers should ask for a fair deal

BCE looking for a Done-deal @ $31.00 is not giving pension plans and pensioners a fair deal. A win-win situation for all parties would be - cash of $10.00 + fair value of BCE shares.  rate and reply

RE:October Dividend

My advice is No deal until it's time. ... Although BA share price has been depressed in value for couple of years, it has good equity values. DON'T SELL UNTIL IT IS TIME.  rate and reply

Correct Me.

There is no more Ba Divi's. On closing day of this deal you take $ 31 or .6371 BCE shares, or cash and shares. A BCE share price of $48.65 becomes better that the $31 cash payout. Also the last big...read more
