Thomas Cook shares?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone buying into them?
     
  2. Doesn't look like it. But their bankers have just agreed to give them a 100 million quid loan at under 5 %.

    My gut feeling is that now is the time to buy their shares - if you can afford to lose the money in the event that it goes tits up. And see it as a medium to long term investment if it doesn't go tits up.

    But then I am a humble EOD Engineer, not an investment guru.
     


  3. I bought 1050 pounds worth day after announcement...based on "oldest travel firm in world would be snapped up for name" and secondly,they knew why things were going tits up... mainly due to arab spring, people didnt fancy visiting north africa and egypt,,,sold yesterday and after deductions made 880 pounds profit.

    No doubt they shares will shoot up on monday opening, but im quite happy with my 2-3 days non work, did advise one of my friends but he just saw the bad media,,as i pointed out,,you dont but when shares are popular! I used a hunch and it worked for me,good luck to all who have a go!
