Das hat einen Grund: ICH habe heute gekauft, das ist ein deutliches Verkaufssignal... :lol:
Möglich dass da einige denken, es könnte etwas kosten. Aber wer nichts investiert, kann auch nichts herausholen. Ich werte solche Invests positiv. Und dann ist ja da noch der Ronny Pecik auch drin bei der Holcim. Vermutlich hat der sich schon auch überlegt, ob die Holcim gut genug ist für ihn. Das Ergebnis für das Jahr 2007 wird schwer in Ordnung sein. Und die schwache amerikaner Währung ist diese Woche für alle schwach. Das kommt auch wieder anders.
07-11-2007 11:55 Holcim plans public bid for further 20 pct of Ambuja Cements next week UPDATE

(updating with more details on India; interest in Huaxin; new plant in Mexico)
ZURICH (Thomson Financial) - Swiss cement maker Holcim Ltd said it plans to make a public tender offer for an additional stake of 20 pct in Indian Ambuja Cements Ltd next week.
The public bid is necessary because Holcim holds share capital in the company over threshold level which requires it to make a bid under the Indian takeover code.
Under the rules, Holcim, which now holds over 40 pct of share capital, is obliged to make a bid for a further 20 pct.
'We have received the necessary clearance by the authorities and expect the public bid to open next week,' Holcim chief executive Markus Akermann said.
The cement group currently has about 25 pct market share in India.
Asked what the company may wish to grow this market share to, given its pending bid for an additional 20 pct, Akermann told Thomson Financial News after a media conference that in India, the company's priority is to 'maintain its market share'.
He noted that the industry is growing there at up to 10 pct a year, thus the company is ramping up capacity in order to safeguard its market share.
In another emerging giant, China, Akermann said the company is concentrating its efforts on boosting its stake in Huaxin, and not seeking other acquisitions in the country.
'It is the first time that a state-owned company is opening up to foreign investment. We are concentrating on this, negotiations are ongoing,' he said.
The company now holds 26 pct in Huaxin.
Asked if the company could take a majority share beyond 50 pct, Akermann said that would not happen, its stake would stay below 50 pct.
Meanwhile, in Mexico, Holcim is building a new cement plant to boost existing production network in the country and to further grow its market share.
The new plant will be located near Hermosillo in the northwest of the country, and will have an annual capacity of 1.6 mln tonnes.
'From 2010 onward, the new plant will provide an ideal addition to the existing production network in this country and will further improve Holcim Apasco's position in this market region,' said Akermann. email@example.com hmn/slm
