Thanks for the tip - I dipped in this morning.
It strikes me that people can use these redundant threads for almost private conversations!
I have not yet found a share I like as much as I liked SMRT. In some ways IGP is the closest investment I hold in terms of sector. INN would be closer still. The question for both is profitability. INN look way off still and with a market cap that is too high for me to be interested at present. But they are directly exposed to ITSO ticketing.
In different markets SVR, CRPR and CAR are now my key investments. DYS is a second liner at present.
Got to dash. Kind regards,
We were robbed!
What do you consider to be the best alternative?
|ITSO Travel cards for the elderly...
What a suprise! ;0)

|Any idea on when we get paid?|
|....and we knew it at the time Garth, not just a hindsight comment either I suggest. I still believe all they required was a wad of cash and they were well on their way, the way the market was shaping up for us.
What do you think of this re-listing some time down the road at a much inflated price? I'm now going to have a seat and a few cups/glases of something to pull my remaining folicles out in this lovely sunshine.|
|From the 16th July statement:
"Mike Eastham, ITSO General Manager stated: "The amount of activity in our market has increased dramatically during the past few months. ITSO Smartcard Schemes are starting up and expanding all over England, Wales and Scotland and the potential arrival of enhanced concessionary travel schemes will drive demand still further. "
In other words, with ITSO staring a dramatic increase in growth and Hitachi production close - we woz robbed.....
|Trust ADVFN to summarise the order news as 20,000 smartcards, rather than 20,000 card readers!|
And trust this lot to get a bloody big order for ISAM on 16th Julyy as well.|
|pity no one else seems to have come in with a higher offer|
|longshanks - I think if you remain as a minority shareholder it can be quite difficult to sell your shares if the company is private - philjeans on the medicsight MDST bb has just posted a comment about it - might be worth your asking him.|
|I've had an email from my online broker asking for written confirmation as to whether I want to accept the offer. If I don't will I still have to sell the shares when the offer goes unconditional - or is it possible to remain a minority holder?
If not is there any benefit me writing to confirm acceptance - if I have to sell anyway.|
|phil - If SFT is in rise mode, wouldn't it be safer to sell SMRT now and get in - or perhaps hedge your bet with half?
Just a thought - no advice intended.|
|SFT still has amazing growth potential; in for a wedge there - waiting patiently for my 7.25p to bag some more.|
|Returned from holiday today to see the news.
Mixed views as others have expressed as I had hoped to see it grow for a year or two. However, the profit has been a relatively quick one since picking them up, mainly between 2.7 and 4.4p last year.
Many thanks to Garth for his exhaustive research which inspired my confidence to invest.
I just looked at SFT for a possible top up using some of my SMRT profit only to find that it has jumped by over 50% from the lows of February and by 33% over the past few weeks.
I will also look at CRPR and DTE as suggested by Garth and/or other contributors above.|
|I too was in for the long term and am disappointed, but thanks again Garth. No doubting we'll be "seeing each other" soon on another Board|
|Can I add my thanks and appreciation, Garth. Good luck with wherever you put your profits.|
|Yes thanks Garth for all your hard work and diligence. If you get a chance check out LOQ.
No investment advice offered of course!
|THE story can continue guys, in the id/smart card market, with igp. great value at the moment, join me and garth in buying igp.|
|Great Job Garth. Thanks for all your hard work. Shame it had to end so soon, and at such a low price.|
|May I also thank you for all your work in this Garth. Very poor of me not to say so before now.
To avoid legal possibilities with DTE, maybe a wee look at BVM would not go amiss. I have not invested in it, yet, although it looks more of a stable prospect/slow mover if you like. Higher p/e but turnover set to almost double this year.|
|Price now will do for me. Selling 80% but will stay in the sector, which is bouyant, buying IDD and maybe a few igp.|
|A cash offer from Advanced Smartcard Technologies (SMRT) helped its shares top the leaderboard. The group confirmed that it had received a 7.25p per share offer valuing the business at 18.7 million pounds. The approach comes from Trainline Investments, a unit of Exponent Private Equity. The terms of the deal represent a 56.8% premium over Monday's closing price. The deal came as the software company reported operating losses of 47,000 pounds for the six months to 31st March. The shares finished 2.375 higher at 7p.
