  • Nintendo falls after not making Nikkei 225 [View news story]
    "The inclusion of highly priced stocks will impact other companies on the measure and even the Nikkei 225 (NKY) Stock Average as a whole,” wrote Nomura’s Izumi. “This may be what keeps it off the benchmark." (http://bloom.bg/15MjRZT)

    Nintendo's stock has been run roughshod in the past several years and experienced abnormal volatility, which can be perceived as a negative for the Nikkei. Nintendo would have been the fourth-largest component and materially affected the index.

  • Court approves sale of Alvarion to Valley Telecom [View news story]
    It hinges on what value the market places on Alvarion after it exits receivership. For a current shareholder to break even after the dilution, the market would have to value Alvarion at 10x the valuation that it previously ascribed to its business. The issue is muddled however, because a significant part of the current valuation comes from M&A speculation.

  • Court approves sale of Alvarion to Valley Telecom [View news story]
    Dilution would occur through the issuance of new shares to Valley Telecom and the Receiver. Under the assumed settlement, the two parties would receive 90% of outstanding shares after new shares are issued. You would still have 500 shares. However, there would be 10x more shares outstanding. If the value of the company remains the same, the value of the company is being divided among more shares. Under the simplifying assumption, the value of each of your shares would be $0.07.

    The caveat is that Alvarion's value as a company will change after it is acquired by another company and its debt is restructured.

  • Telecom Argentina soars; is Telecom Italia planning to sell its stake? [View news story]
    Telecom Italia's stake is not currently floated to the public. If a transaction were to occur, there is no reason why the stake would necessarily enter the float and add to the number of shares outstanding; rather, it seems more probable that the shares would continue to stay off exchanges.

    Also, if TI is indeed considering sale of its stake, the market may be perceiving a transaction as a net positive for TEO - having a more financially viable owner of 1/3 of the company would be a positive.
