Cannot find any posting about SUN.

I am start looking for undervalued stocks outside energy and resources to balance my extremely unbalanced portfolio. I found a few. One of them is SUN.

Mix of bank and insurance business with PE at 13. The cheapest amount both bank and insurance sector. Could be a good takeover target too in the increasingly buyout environment. Let's see...

Re: SUN - Suncorp-Metway

SUN is a core stock for any Queenslander. I have accumulated this stock since its listing, buying on weakness in the AXO. It seems overpriced at present but who knows? Technically its behaving, higher highs and higher lows. The takeover of PMN is all too complicated for me. Possibility of further t/o activity. Its a political stock so any spectacular activity would need to be approved by politicians.

Re: SUN - Suncorp-Metway

SUN crossed $22 first time in three months. Financial stocks are back. But SUN is still the cheapest one. I still believe this is the stock to park your hard earned resources money just in case.

Any fundamentalists have ideas on SUN post merger with Promina. Is it a goer on the figures. I get confused at the checkout at Woolies, stressing over which way to put he credit card in, so have no hope of reading financial reorts p/e's , accruals etc.etc. Basically I'd like to know if it is likely that they won't go broke. If they do well the share price will increase, if they don't, and don't go broke they'll get taken over. If they go broke I'll lose. The charts can't help me on this so any numbers gals or guys out there please help me out. Garpal

Trading halt is due to the merge with Promina. The federal court has accepted the merge proposal and they will proceed with it this week. SUN will be out of the trading halt on Friday and Promina shareholders will receive SUN shares by then.

Re: SUN - Suncorp-Metway

Existing shareholders are apparently to be offered a fairly well discounted price on new shares.

I held SUN for a few years but sold it on the Promina news and haven't regretted it so far.

SUN is offering new shares ot existing shareholders @ 27% discount. It is a juicy discount and I am sure I will be taking part of it.

Re: SUN - Suncorp-Metway

Do you guys think it's a good thing for the stock price? Do you guys think the trading halt has saved SUN from the major fall on the market today or the fall will catch up with the stock?

Dear Mime,

You and all your family will from this day henceforth be paupers and dependent on the queue at DSS with the local Ice wholesalers and retailers.

Seriously though, grab a coin and flip it, heads the market will go up, tails down. Nobody knows. Basic charts on ASX and o'seas indices indicate a downward trend beginning.

If you are a short term investor I'd suggest getting out. A medium term i.e less than 6 month view get out. Long term debatable, I'd suggest stay in as this is a minor correction in the the long term. SUN I hold , and have since listing. Also Promina. I'll hold and accumulate unless market tanks +++ in next few weeks.

ASX is way well above due a correction on long term charts.

Maybe there will be a short term fall in SUN after the trading halt ends. I held PMN, so I will get some SUN shares. If SUN falls a bit, I'll take the buying opportunity. Long term, with the Promina and GIO businesses, plus their own core banking, plus a healthy dividend yield 100% franked, it should be a winner.
regards. YN.

Hi Mime,

That is a very good question that I have been thinking about for the last 4 weeks.

There are 2 scenarios IMO:

1) Price drop due to the extra number of shares available, Promina shareholders selling and those who bought to get the new discounted shares

2) Price holds as the company is much larger now and will get a higher weight in the indexes.

I guess tomorrow we will see a drop until the share price stabilize.

Re: SUN - Suncorp-Metway

Hey guys.

Anyone know what ratio of discounted units can be purchased? I thought it said 2:15 can anyone confirm?

P.S it look like SUN may have dodged the sharp fall because of the trading halt.

Taking into account it is ex entitlement, 2:15 , Sun close on Friday at 21.25 is a sign that the price will not fall, and may rise post merger.

I note brokers are bullish on Sun after trading halt.

Re: SUN - Suncorp-Metway

I cannot seem to find it anywhere...

Does anyone know the true value promina shareholders were given for the takeover?

I thought it was $7.60. And if that is the case, whats the breakeven price for suncorp shares (now that it has dropped)?
