Seems to react upwards to bad news at BT.

e.g. Employees at Italian unit if BT warned in Nov 15 about accounting problems, a year before Bat revealed it.

Full Transcript:

Her ownership of the 1998 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Cool Dawn means that this column bows to no one in its admiration for Baroness Harding of Winscombe. But her departure from the chief executive’s position at TalkTalk could just be the catalyst that finally gets the shares to raise a gallop.

Last year’s security breach damaged the firm’s reputation and therefore its operational performance, as shown by the net loss of 42,000 customers in the third quarter. Meanwhile the broadband and telecoms market remains brutally competitive, a fact reaffirmed by a 3pc year-on-year drop in average revenue per user.

This all explains why the shares have done poorly, especially as the dividend is no longer covered by earnings and a cut is distinctly possible – a yield of 8.9pc really does fall into the “too-good-to-be-true” category.

Yet a cut is already expected, using stockbrokers’ research as a guide, and the yield should still be decent even after any reduction.

In addition, healthy cashflow means debt (and therefore risk) is coming down, while operational initiatives mean TalkTalk could be poised to surprise, relative to what are now low expectations, as the firm simplifies its prices, rolls out superfast broadband and gets ready to launch 4G mobile services.

Throw in the appointment as executive chairman of Sir Charles Dunstone, a 30pc shareholder and founder of the business from his Carphone Warehouse days, and things could really get interesting.

He has never been afraid to buy or sell assets and it may be only a matter of time before analysts start to ponder whether TalkTalk is a bid candidate, although any such activity is not core to the investment case.

We rated the shares only a hold when we covered them in November at 200p, but following the share price fall and in light of the positive developments we now upgrade our stance to buy.

Questor says: buy

I don't always hang on Questor's every word but I too think that Dunstone taking the Chair could be a good thing in a sector that has to consolidate.

Dunstone takes charge at Talk Talk as Harding steps down after 7 years
Share
09:00 01 Feb 2017

The surprise change at the top came as the FTSE 250-listed firm also reported a 5.4% drop in third-quarter net revenues to £435mln, down from £459mln a year earlier.

Dido Harding, chief executive of Talktalk Telecom Group PLC (LON:TALK) is to step down in May after seven years in charge, with founder Charles Dunstone becoming the broadband group’s executive chairman and, as a result, quitting his post as non-executive chairman of Dixons Carphone PLC (LON:DC.).

The surprise change at the top came as the FTSE 250-listed firm also reported a 5.4% drop in third-quarter net revenues to £435mln, down from £459mln a year earlier.

Harding, a life peer and a a vocal critic of industry leader BT Group PLC (LON:BT.) said that after seven years, it was time to "start handing over the reins at TalkTalk and focus more on my activities in public service".

Dunstone will be replaced at Dixons Carphone by Ian Livingston, the ennobled former chief executive of telecommunications giant BT and deputy chairman at the merged, FTSE 100-listed electricals and mpbiles phones retailer since 2015.

At Talktalk,Tristia Harrison, currently managing director of TalkTalk Consumer will succeed Harding as CEO and Charles Bligh, currently managing director of TalkTalk Business will become chief operating officer.

Dunstone said: “I'm excited at the prospect of spending more time on TalkTalk, beginning with delivering another successful performance this year; and I am delighted to announce the promotion of Tristia and Charles to help me lead the business so that we continue to deliver successfully for our customers and our shareholders."

Talk Talk shares topped the FTSE 250 leader board in early trading, jumping over 6% higher, up 10.0p to 166.5p.

Independent retail analyst Nick Bubb said: "Well, 'once a mobile phone man always a mobile phone man', as they say, so it’s perhaps no great surprise that Charles Dunstone wants to return to his roots by getting more involved with TalkTalk, but investors in Dixons Carphone will be wondering what his move says about the prospects for the business 3 years on from the merger…"

Dixons Carphone was the biggest FTSE 100 faller, with its shares down down almost 1% or 2.7p at 313.2p.

But analysts at Liberum said: "While today’s announcement is unexpected, we do not see anything untoward."

Re-pricing legacy …

In a separate trading update today, TalkTalk – which was the victim of a major cyber hacking attack in 2015 - said a high level of re-contracting and re-pricing of its legacy tariffs had an impact on its revenue in the third-quarter.

But the firm said an additional 81,000 customers have re-contracted during the first 4 weeks of January, of which over 75% have re-contracted on its newly introduced 24 month plan.

The group added that it expects “to deliver positive on-net net adds and lower churn in Q4, with a stable and higher quality Retail base driving revenue growth during FY18.”

TalkTalk maintained its guidance for full-year underlying earnings (EBITDA) for 2017 and reiterated that its final dividend will be flat year-on-year at 10.58p.



TALKTALK SEES STRONG LEVEL OF RE-CONTRACTING, FULL YEAR IN LINE WITH GUIDANCE

(ShareCast News) - Alongside departure of chief executive Dido Harding, telecoms group TalkTalk reported that revenue and earnings for the current financial year would be affected by strong levels of customer re-contracting, but will be in line with previous guidance.
The FTSE 250 company, which will see current chairman Charles Dunstone take on executive responsibilities amid the major boardroom reshuffle, expects the final divid
