HomeServe shares rally

HomeServe plc has agreed to be taken over by Canadian investment firm Brookfield for almost £4.1 billion.

The interest from the Canadian company was first made public on the 24th March and today the board has agreed to a £12 per share cash deal. This is a 71% premium to the stock price prior to the takeover announcement that started back in April.

Technical analysis

Let's take a look now at a chart of HomeServe shares because, as you can see, we've seen a really strong momentum here in that rally, especially back here on the 24th March. This was, as I was saying earlier, the first time that Brookfield had announced its interest in HomeServe.

We have seen that strong rally back here, once again in April when HomeServe actually confirmed they were in talks with the Toronto-based company. Strong momentum there following all the way into today where we have seen that deal announced. Once again showing a premium over the share price back here in March when the talk started, but also a premium to current share price as well.

This is still below the 2020 highs back here, we saw them in August two years ago, almost. This was obviously on the back of that rally from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nonetheless we still have some good momentum from HomeServe's share price, as you can see. The RSI is firmly above the overbought territory showing those buyers are still in control.

We may have a little bit of a retracement from this move, we've already seen pushing away slightly from those highs. And after the previous three strong rallies that we've seen, we have seen a period of consolidation, a bit of a retracement.

Those investors are gathering a bit of a pause for breath, discovering where the next move is going to come. But nonetheless, that strong momentum there is still holding, likely to hit those £12 per share in the next few days as more investors digest this news.

    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
