Share Price Alert: Contact Energy Ltd 4


1 year CEN Chart

After a Share Price Alert just two weeks ago on Contact Energy Ltd [CEN.NZX] where shares plunged 18c or 3.13% to $5.57c due to bad operational data and a loss of 20000 customers CEN shares have passed well below their previous support levels (see 3 year chart below) where the downside usually stops at around $5.50. Yesterday CEN closed trading at a 2 and a half year low of $5.32, a price not not seen since February 2009 when this stock started its trading trip where it has ebbed between around $5.50 and $6.50 per share.

The drops have been on much higher than average volumes.

There are rumours that majority owner Origin Energy Ltd [ORG.ASX] are keen to make a bid for the company and are mismanaging the company intentionally poorly so the share price is affected and they can come in and make a cheeky bid for the 47% odd of shares they do not already own. Its sounds an odd thing to do but nevertheless this rumour is currently doing the rounds for a number of good reasons that will remain between me and my keyboard.

This stock is looking more and more attractive everyday for the short term investor.

My last advice two weeks ago still stands to buy but with the added thought that there could be more bad news to come based on the share price drop so that could provide more opportunity for those that are patient.
