|thanks, I'll have to pay more attention !|
|It's in the interims.|
|how do they know there is a scale up ? Committed to who and where, I never saw this in any RNS (that I know of)|
|Intriguing start to an article in this week's Shares Magazine - anyone got full access:
"Investment ramp hints at Accesso opportunity
Theme parks technology firm may have major new agreement in pipeline
12 January 2017
An R&D ramp-up may be the precursor to a new major contract win for Accesso Technology (ACSO:AIM). The company specialises in attractions and theme park ticketing, queuing and payments technology. It is committed to scaling up as part of its 100-odd site worldwide roll out with attractions operator Merlin Entertainments (MERL) following a landmark seven-year agreement in July 2015. Accesso ..."|
|thats terrible !|
|If an RNS does appear, I want to be the first to call him Tom Cruise....Sorry, couldn't resist.spud|
|Tom mentions cruise liners 4th paragraph down here:-
|Expect a decent rise next week. MM's buying in quantity at the touch. spud|
|Gleach23, thanks - very helpful!|
|from8to800...by market quote I was was referring to the bid/offer quote you see on your advfn monitor (or equivalent). in reality one can trade inside these quotes particularly when the spread is so wide as with ACSO. this afternoon the advfn quote on the offer was 15.55 whereas an online quote from my broker was showing 15.515 (ie almost a full market quote). on the bid side, advfn was quoting 14.85 whereas the online quote was 15.2275
to me, the inference from these quotes was one of an underlying strength in the share price ..hope this helps|
|Apologies for the basic/obvious questions here (still learning the ropes) - what exactly do you mean by "the online portal"? Is that the "trades" tab?And what is the difference between the online quote and 'full market' quote?|
|Just a remiinder that Tom will be presenting at the ShareSoc supper next month and it is already nearly full...
Accesso Technology (ASCO) present at our next Richmond Supper on the 7th February: Http://www.sharesoc.org/richmond-feb.html|
|Agree spud...there's been steady buying of late.
Online quotes are pretty much at the full market quote of 15.55 while the bid is up at £15.2275 meaning the recent couple of trades reported as buys will actually be sells.|
|Just by checking the online portal.
|Zero stock out there currently. Looking for quick rise from here.
|Good spot helpaargh. Pretty sure it isn't ACSO as it's the "brainchild" of John Padgett, who was "previously a vice president at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts" and "was one of the chief architects of Disney's MagicBand bracelet".
The point is obviously that with Carnival unveiling and debuting the device this year, all the other cruise ship companies will need to show they're doing the same. ACSO will surely be in the frame for such a device.|
|Two ex Disney guys working for Carnival. Shows how large the market for smart wearables is.|
|Sounds like ACSO|
ES 2017: Cruise trips personalised with wearable gadget

The Ocean Medallion device can be incorporated into jewellery or simply carried in a passenger's pocket
Cruise line Carnival has launched a wearable gadget that allows services on board its ships to be personalised for guests.
The Ocean Medallion can be worn as a necklace, clip or keychain - or carried in a passenger's pocket.
It will connect to onboard facilities, tracking meal orders or automatically unlocking guests' cabins as they approach the door, for example.
One analyst said it would have to be easy to use to entice holidaymakers.
Details of the project are being outlined at two events at the CES tech show in Las Vegas.
'Needs to be flawless'
The Ocean Medallion will connect with onboard systems on the first specially modified cruise ship later this year via internet of things technology.
Other ships in the Princess Cruises fleet will then adopt the system.
It was a "great example of novel uses for smart devices", said Martin Garner, a tech analyst at CCS Insight.
"But, because people go on cruises as a relaxing holiday, the system will have to work flawlessly and be super-easy to use," he told the BBC.
He also noted that, just like upgrading a big hotel, the venture would likely be a costly one - which adds "a degree of risk" for Carnival.
Miles of cable
The first ship to feature the system is the Regal Princess. 75 miles (121km) of cables, more than 7,000 sensors and 4,000 digital screens were installed in 10 days in Italy.
"It's going to almost be invisible to guests," the company said.
"They're not going to realise how much [technology] is in here."

Cruise ship workers will receive information about guests via the Ocean Medallion
Holiday resorts and cruise ship brands, including Carnival's rival Royal Caribbean Cruises, increasingly offer visitors access to various services via smart bands or wearable gadgets.
The undertaking could perhaps foreshadow what life in a future smart city or internet of things-powered shopping complex might be like.
But Mr Garner noted not everyone had the capabilities of a cruise line.
"City officials don't typically have the budget to do grand-vision schemes like the Carnival re-fit," he said.
"In fact, most cities are chronically short of budget."
Connection technologies built in to the Ocean Medallion include Bluetooth and near field communications (NFC), according to the travel firm.
This will allow passengers to:
unlock their cabin doors automatically as they approach
find the location of friends and family onboard the ship
pay for merchandise without using cash or a credit card
navigate from one place to another on the vessel
connect guests to a gambling platform accessible around the ship
The service will be offered first to passengers on the Regal Princess ship from November. It will then be expanded to the Royal Princess and Caribbean Princess ships in 2018.|
|Cheers pp, and to you.
I believe there's still plenty of upside here given:
- the rollout to Merlin's global list of attractions and theme parks over the next year or two
- the likelihood of further news flow re the Universal Studios partnership
- the likely large benefit to revenues and margins from deriving a cut of EVERY customer visiting a theme park rather than just those renting a Q-Bot
- the expansion into both ticketing and into new sectors which would benefit from reductions in queue times, i.e ski resorts, cruise ships etc etc
- the potential from legal action to benefit from ACSO's list of patents
There may be ups and downs along the way, but the current m/cap might just be pretty small relative to (1) the possibilities above and (2) the fast-growing, secure and recurring revenue streams accruing to ACSO.|
|HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all
I hope 2017 brings us much happiness and cash!lol
|Neil Hermon is buying in a tad late in my view. The real bargain was when it was less than 10p and not at £16. It's already worth £300m. I would have thought £500m is about the maximum valuation such a niche outfit could attain, but what do I know selling the last of mine at £1.40 or so! Well done for still holding though.|
|Here's another fund manager who's been buying more ACSO:
"Neil Hermon, manager of IC Top 100 FundHenderson Smaller Companies Investment Trust (HSL)....has also been adding stocks he thinks have undervalued structural growth potential, such as....Accesso Technology, which provides technology to the theme park industry".
OT : indeed topvest, I've made an awful lot of money since first buying in at 50p or so, both on paper and from taking some profits (though others here have made much more than me!). However, I can see ACSO going on and on from here given the fast-growing and secure revenue streams, the new technologies being introduced, the entry into new sectors, potential acquisitions, the litigation which may start to bear fruit, etc etc.|
|Just had a look at this again. Still way overvalued. And to think I bought these originally at 2.5p in the Lo-q days. Made a good profit, but I was all out at about £1 or so. Bit of a lesson on running your winners! You must have made a fortune on this one Rivaldo as I'm sure you were here 5+ years ago. It is almost a 400 bagger if I had held. Think I only made a 10 bagger or so on average.|
