|Just had to laugh at the monicker on this aged BB thread. :)|
daniel levi bmd
|it was ok until it wasn't, i got out after asking several dentists when i took my kids in, byword for rubbish they all implied|
|mryesyes:> Thanks - Cash flow (negative) on this one always worried me - glad I listened to my worry.|
|I can confirm that will be zero, as there are a lot of staff who need bigger payoffs as no new jobs, and creditors 15p in the pound, spivs you take your chances|
|Sad to hear the news on this one, I've been watching this share for the last six months. There's always hope though, I was invested in TMN when it got suspended at 3p but following a reverse takeover by PRO the share price is now at 18p - I'm well down but not out! Sit tight and hope it works out OK for investors in the long run.|
|happy i did not get involved in this one dentists in uk are rip off anywyas just got my teeth cleaned here the other dya cost £5 1 hour and polish walk in walk out no appointment required....
sorry for investors here....
traders well the writting was on the wall!|
|Sorry guys but you were warned|
|been holding up well in the face of a seller but I've got bored and sold. Faster stuff to chase really.
No doubt it will fly north now.
|Yes but H1 was particularly disasterous last year|
|Blimey - back into profit in H1, wasn't expecting them to show a profit till the full year perhaps :-)
An improverment of over 0.8p over H1 last year. If they keep that up it will be interesting.
|Short of stock here, had to pay a premium on the 5.25p offer for my top up this morning!|
|quite a bit of buying today.
|Going through last weeks high - results in 9 days time - breakout looking pretty close.
|Results in a fortnight - been some good buying of late - more to come over the next two weeks as results get closer perhaps.
|Ignore CR, he spends all day on ADVFN claiming to know people connected to a stock, and always claiming to be making trades, he has been doing it for 4 years and if he had made all the trades he claimed since 2006 he would be bankrupt.
However whatever the situation, this stock (unlike LTS CR) has a good daily turnover and quick profits are there buying at 3 and selling at 6 etc(or2-5)
Most of its life this traded 10p-£1 range, so theres upside, and its hard to value
Director buys of 1m well thats £30K not bad|
|Trouble is 1st' s market is being downgraded as all the implant technicians and quality workers have gone.
What they are mainly doing is budget work.
Why the shares are going up is a mystery to me.
There would seem to be no reason whatsoever. IMHO.|
|Blimey Freddy - we're in danger of being mistaken for Cameron and Clegg if you keep that up! :-)
Yes troyzgod - this guy actually does the full monty in that they take clients in and bother make and fit the implants as dental technicians and dentist but yes, 55K is probably more the dentists fee but whatever, implants seem to increase the technicians margins by some way, looking at this guy's house and the cars he's driving. I actually design and print his brochures and pricelists so gleaned my info there.
I can't guess what they are at but the fact implants increase the margins and directors have been buying recently (Chairman bought nearly 1m not long ago and increased his holding by about 700%) suggests there's good things going on imo. The implant margins might be the catalyst perhaps? The guy I know is now like a one stop shop - dentists and technician all in-house - perhaps that's a route FDT might be taking if I think out loud.
Will find out before long I guess will results not far off.
Testing the recent highs here.
|thanks for that sensible analysis cr i may take a close look....|
|Frauddy boy. Have you finally seen sence and decided to employ me as your investment advisor? :-)
Gyllenhammer's been titting about here, dunno what his game was but there was obviously some way for him to make a quick turn on that stake.
A guy I know sold out to these - when they were Benchmark. the margins are huge of their business. He's started up again now - he's making full sets of implants at £55K a set - unbelieveable. The actual materials are peanuts, you just need the staff skilled enough to do the work well.
I suspect in the past most of FDT's business has been crown and bridge which has great margins but nothing like implants. Personally I wouldn't hold these for more than 18 months - they have a 2-2.5 year cycle before the people they buy out or have bought out start to leave and start up elsewhere. But on a 12-18 month view I reckon these could be rather good. Not something I want to hold shedloads of as they aren't liquid enough for me but £7-£10k I'm cool with - reckon I'll double my money pretty swift imo.
More implants - bigger profits Frauddy.
|crookers, if you like it so much, why not take a meaningfull chunk?
what's the story here?|
