Reading ITV (ITV)'s trading update I must admit the investment vibes felt positive to me and the stock was up a couple of percent in the first half an hour of trading. An hour or so later the stock was down 6% odd and I was thinking...why?
Hello, Share Curdlers. At the incredibly good UK Investor Show in April, I heard a strong recommendation to buy into ITV (ITV). The reasoning was - and I agreed with this - is that, if you want your product to be aired before 6 million people in one go, then ITV is the only platform you have.
I wrote last week about ITV (ITV) pinching Easyjet (EZJ)'s CEO Carolyn McCall and no doubt she is rubbing her hands together thinking not just about her new pay and incentives package but after today's update...also a fourth series of Love Island. The show only a minority of you will ever have viewed figured prominently in today's corporate presentation as ITV's management team attempted to get down with the kids - and rev up the financial analytical community - with lots of excitable statistics about viewer levels, website interactions and app/short video downloads.
Hello Share Scramblers. At the much-loved UK Investor Show I heard someone on the main stage confirm something I’ve said once or twice on this scintillating website. That is that ITV (ITV) is worth considering.
Hello Share Pluggers. I’ve held my ITV (ITV) shares since Noah went to youth club. And though I’ve seen a horrible dive or two, the shares had been climbing back strongly for at least five years now.

Shares were up slightly after a disastrous start to the week. That initial poor show was due, as I explained earlier, to a bout of profit- taking in the US, after a few exceptionally good weeks for American traders.
Long-time readers of this awe-inspiring website will know that I’ve long waved the flag for ITV (ITV) as a reasonable punt.
For what it's worth, one of my main strategies, if not THE most important to me, is to keep my peepers peeled and my ears finely tuned.
Hello Share Swampers. It can't have escaped your notice that the population seems to be getting dozier. There are people who watch television for eight hours a day.
Hello Share Teamsters: That big independent telly firm ITV (ITV) has had a remarkable recovery. Over the last two years it has become more than a four bagger. That is because the Credit Crunch decimated the advertising industry. Who wants to advertise when nobody has the cash to buy anything? But now that growth is back, so is advertising.
Hello Share People: When I was young, I applied for a job on Yorkshire Television. They didn't comply. As a revenge tactic, I began to buy up loads of their shares. The idea was to hold so many in the end that they would have to give me a place on the board. Then I could hire myself as a presenter
