Laporte



  • I bought Laporte as a long term hold, while a lengthy spell out isn't good for PB purposes I'm going to look at the silver lining here and suggest it may increase his value long term.

    There will be hype leading up to his eventual comeback and if City have a bad spell with him out of the team it will lead to a new level of appreciation for just how good a defender he is.

    I'm not suggesting anyone buys or holds at this point, just suggesting an alternative view.



  • Has had a bit of recovery today in price, anybody got any clue why?



  • @ChazFI123 just done some research and seems that is a reaction to the fact it is meniscus damage rather than ligament damage, which shortens the recovery time



  • @ChazFI123

    Talking a couple of months out. Similar to De Bruyne's injury rather than tearing the ACL. Worth buying now for me. Will be back for all the European games etc. and he's young and PB scores are among the best.



  • @NewUser51324 Yeah I've finally jumped on at £1.48- seems a ridiculously safe hold in terms of he should return atleast 30p per share now. Easy 20% ROI



  • So...

    With Laporte injured... will we see Walker move to the middle and Cancelo starting?



  • @Dan-The-Man pep defo hinted at that, but also fernandinho, almost as if either of those options were better to him than otamendi.



  • I think we will see Fernandino slot in at CB for some games, Pep rates him highly and we have seen him play Fernandino there before.



  • Looks like he is out for up to 6 months with Knee Surgery. Surely his price will drop more now?



  • Expected more of a drop after the announcement today. I got the news very promptly by pure chance and IS'd but I think he's only dropped 3p! Seems a bit of a weird one



  • @NewUser296743 I don’t think people are shocked that he’s gonna be out for that amount of time, people expected it so they’d have already sold. The news today just confirmed what people already predicted



  • @ChazFI123 I had assumed the spike from 1.43 to 1.54 was because people were predicting it wasn't as bad as it had originally seemed, surprised it didn't drop down to lower considering 6 months is a while.



  • Annoyingly I thinking is more down to the fact there is a 20p spread on him. Even if he were to drop would he drop as far as 20p more? For me FI are ruining the opportunity to buy injured players like before. The spreads instantly get so big that people just have to hold on.



  • @NewUser731 I agree, buying/selling injured players has been quite lucrative for me, but selling quickly on the back of any negative news has been beneficial in the past, even just to re-buy at the bottom



  • Pep said up to 6 months and said he could be back in January which is 4 months away. I would be very surprised if it's the full 6 months.



  • @Zidave true but that's alot of uncertainly, also expect city to go and buy another cb in Jan now. In the short term i think he may be putting Walker at CB and going three at the back or playing cancelo down the right. All speculation, but that's the name of the game I guesss

    I bought back in at £1.46 when the injury was announced on the Tuesday after the match. 6 months out is only 1 or 2 more than what I anticipated and coincides with the Champions League and Premier League run in.



  • What price can you see this fella topping out at?

    Seen it suggested on facebook the fella tops out at £1.80 but it seems to me that people think the top end value of the player to be around £1.90 mark.

    What's peoples thoughts? I have 100 and am 10.46% up at the moment and initial thought when buying was around a 20% ROI which would mean £1.87 market sale price after commission.

    In no rush to sell, just caught between the rock that is (8% ROI now and buy into Neymar and chase DIVS (I'd be able to get 20 of him) and the hard place that could be more of a rise with the return of the player and then the Euros.

    What would you do gang?



  • @Milnerman
    As a holder of both I would say go with Laporte

    With 20 Neymar shares the dividends are going to be negligible and to earn 10% on Neymar at the moment would require his price to increase by A further 77p

    For Laporte to increase by 10% he would need to rise by 17p

    I think the latter is more likely over the next couple of months.



  • £1.86 was his pre-injury peak. I seem to remember his PB scores being pretty impressive for someone of his price range so I think there might be a touch more to come as he was still on the way up when he got injured.

    Your £1.90, maybe £2, is around about right tbh. However, there are the Euros to consider if you're wanting to play the long game. IIRC he's not actually won a France cap yet, but he was in the most recent squad before withdrawing through injury and quite honestly I'd choose him over Lenglet every day of the week.

    As for "What would you do gang" I'm not in the business of telling other people what to do with their money. 10%+ profit is still profit. However, I hold and will continue to hold at his current price.
