Vivendi SE (EU:VIV) at around 10.06 currently looking goodish

#Gold #SP500  There cannot be many companies who can trace their lineage back to Napoleon III but Vivendi were originally known as Compagnie Generale des Eaux, created by imperial decree by Napoleon 3 in 1953, supplying water to Lyon, Paris, Nantes, Venice, and Constantinople. The company remained fascinated with water for the next 100 years and by the 1970’s, they decided to expand into other less wet sectors.

The information on Vivendi is in danger of being sanitised as even Wikipedia warn the company page may have been created in return for undisclosed payments, something at odds with the ethos of Wiki policies. Or in plain English, the company story is truly impressive, lacking real gossip about court cases, bribes, and their invariable wartime activities. But on the plus side, they now own Canal+, Dailymotion, and a bunch of other activities, present in television, movies, video gaming, book publishers, printed media, communications, etc etc. From a personal viewpoint, the inclusion of Canal+ is usually a valid reason to avoid watching any film productions in English as they invariably also include Canadian production values, where it often appears “And they all lived happy ever after” tends to be a firm rule writers must adhere to. Strangely, French language productions generally avoid this saccharin pitfall which is simply odd.


Since the share price was murdered by the divestment of Universal Music Group (the worlds leading music company) in September 2021, the price has failed to actually do anything really interest but there are early signs something may be going on with Vivendi. To be utterly clear, there is currently no logic which presents any scenario where recovery to the levels before Universal was spun off but, things are starting to give slight reason for hope. And of course, we’ve had a few emails asking for our opinion on their potentials.

Above 10.3€ looks capable of entering a recovery cycle toward an initial 12.25, along with a visual suggestion of hesitation given this matches the highs achieved post Universal Music. But we shall regard closure above the 12 Euro mark as quite a big deal, entering a longer term cycle to an impressive 16.6€. If wanting to play safe and sane, above the Blue downtrend since 2022 illustrates 10.5 euro as a potential trigger level to get things moving properly.

If the market plans to take a crazy route, below 9.5 could possibly trigger problems, causing reversal down to an initial 9€ with secondary, if broken, at a hopeful bottom before 8.5 euro.
