EOH - fact or rumor

Recommended Posts

So EOH's share price is being hammered at the moment all based on a rumor that there has been some under hand dealings. 


I have been buying for a few reasons.


Past history ( looking at increase in HEPS)

PE is a low as it's been for ages

The newspaper that put out the latest piece - has a few issues - the report itself looked like a hack job.

the directors have been buying

Trading update expected - end of the month?

JP Verster likes it.


Own it in my long term portfolio - but bought these for a trade in an ungeared position. Will be patient, avg around 112 and looking for 20%

I actually considered sending my CV to them not so long ago - would be nice working for a listed company.


But I reckon that's something that'll have to wait until this all blows over and/or is finalised. Really glad I'm not there...yet.

well, guess time will tell. Think it would be odd that some traders know more than the directors. Sure, hard times are here - I am wondering if people are equating ADI's last set of results with EOH? I would be surprised if EOH does not increase heps by 20%+ - way better than the current PE 13- 14 suggests.

What are the volumes (or values rather) of those trades directors are making?


It would look very suspicious if after the news broke of their possible involvement in corruption the directors started selling off shares.
