So it looks like it was all about a potential tax claim. And the rich buys at PEP throw their tantrum because they didn't get their way.

We need independent directors to look independent dammit. Not actually be independent.

The tale gets murkier by the day but the final conclusion is right.

Has QAN announcing a possible break up of its different subsidiaries had any influence on FLT's founders pulling the plug on its PEP deal?

I think so.

Back in the day, when everyone was happy except Ansett and airlines hadn't even contemplated Singapore Airlines entering the fray, FLT had a privileged and special relationship with QAN. The people who were at the top of both companies then are still there now so you can assume the lines of communication are open and active and now that market conditions are changing again they have seen the light.

No longer will QAN try to enter the ticketing business and no longer will FLT dream of having a chartered airline.

Instead, they will work with each other on those fronts and at the same time FLT will try to increase its services of insurance and FOREX and go head to head with AMEX safe in the knowledge their core business is underwritten by their special relationship with QAN after they take over their back office ticketing functions.

On ya' Scroo.

Lazards are one of the most well connected companys in NYC. I once saw the CEO in an interview on CNN. A mind of steel.

I don't doubt for a single minute that AMEX has influenced Lazard in coming to their decision.

I see trouble ahead for FLT.

One of my favourite stocks this. I remember getting in at $8 eons ago and out at 28$ with some profitable trades along the way. Then back in on the recent breach of $10.

My feeling is that this move is hung around a strategy of loss leading in to new markets. The recent Forex deal indicates that. I think they will stay out of the airline game. Preferring to take on AMEX head to head.

AMEX are in tight with Qantas. IF relations are still good between the FLT and QAN then I would imagine Nixon has said set yourself up as AMEX and we'll go with you for all our financials and insurance.

Yeah. Send those Americans packing. BLT have just repelled the Citigroup led take over. AMEX will lose market share to FLT. Cemex, another Citigroup led bid, will fail in the bid for RIN. Citigroup's business has peaked. Even gonna be dobbed in by one of their clients in the inside trading case. Bwahahaha. Crikey. Even Sol might get sent home. Ariba! biggrin.gif

If they wanna come Down Under let it be with a cheque book.

A close above $12.50 might be about the first line to cross


Hi Dawno smile.gif

Looking good to break from a cup and handle ish base pattern,... three of the four weekly indicators I use for basing stocks say thunderbirds are go, but like you feel a close above $12.50(on volume) is needed. It has had a bit of a go at it today but low volume for now.

Cheers
