|Some interesting share price moves in the last few weeks.|
|oh dear.......another crookney crookup! seems when you do get a winner, DTG for example, you more than hand it back on the rest of your picks - my advice is to go large and concentrate on fewer stocks, it doesn't eally matter if one of your myriad doubles if you never have more than 5 per cent of your dosh in it, does it?|
|2 x 500K trades - @ 74p Frauddy :-)
Look, you're obviously a guy in need of financial help - buy some GDWN - results brought forward a month to Dec 28th.
Have a look at the earnings growth for GDWN Frauddy
2003 = 25.5p, 2004 = 27p (+6%), 2005 = 35p (+30%), 2006 = 47p (+35%), 2007 = 65p (+38%).
40%+ earnings growth this year?
Why's the results date been brough forward a month? Won't be bad news imo, that gets delayed!
Don't say I haven't tried to help you despite your hostility to me I know you need my help and I'm big enough to give you that help.
|i doubt if you have seen the bottom yet my friend......a few misguided gamblers do not change the fundamental lack of outlook of the business.....as you will see! the bright side is it will subsidise your losses on flk and that wallpaper outfit.......and many others i suspect|
|Unlucky Frauddy - I told you to you'd miss the bottom.
|On the way up Frauddy - you're missing your chance I'm afraid.
£200m sales? mkt cap £33m.
What sort of margin do they need to get back to to be on a PE of 5 with all those sales.
Cry when you've missed it Frauddy.
|Has anybody showing interest in this stock looked at what is happening on the high street. You can buy a branded product for the same price as an Alba product. Gone are the days when Alba could sell a product at a budget price by sourcing and importing from the far east, all the majors are now doing the same but with a brand name behind them also most of the main supermarket chains are doing the same and undercutting Alba. They were once the companies main route to retail sales. Also Alba do not sell them the products they give them on consignment.
I really cannot see how this company can return to profit basically who is going to buy a Goodmans TV for £399 when they can buy a Philips or Panasonic for the same nowdays.
A bit of simplistic view I know but isn't that what it really all boils down to. Basically a changing market and Alba have failed to change with it and frankly have left it a bit to late to start now.|
|but the forecast is still for a loss for the full year and no evidence of profitability the year after, so why buy now? best that can be said is that at this price it has a cap of just 30m - however debt is 24m so an enterprise value of 54m for a company estimated to lose 6m minimum in the full year, no div and no proven future......these metrics would have been 'cheap' six months ago, but you still have not adjusted to the bear market - only just beginning my friend - you will lose a lot of your lucky profits if you do not rethink your position............btw, have you ever experienced a bear market? i reckon you probably haven't been an investor long enough (last real bear maket was a very long time ago......how olong have you been active - i doubt more than 7-10 years?|
|Crookney - we seem to meet up a lot these days.........we are in a new kind of market my friend, you must adapt - thses could just as easily be 100p or 20p in the next few weeks.........the usual suspects have no dosh to support this kind of stuff - keep your powder dry for better bargains........|
|Buy low then :-)
I've just added on this nonsense low.
|My son worked for ALBA for a number of years.
He had a share save scheme which he cashed in at £8.10 just over 3 years ago I believe.
He had other shares that he sold at over £11 during the tech boom.........how the mighty fall!!!!!!!!|
|MM's offering a silly sale here - marking down on any sell - the chance to buy in the sort of mad market may never appear again imo.
Net nothing in sells hardly has wiped £3m off the mkt cap today - hideous imo.
|on the up - screamingly tight to buy when there's demand - think these will bounce huge at some point
|this from the interims:
"Results for the second half of the current financial year are expected to show a material improvement on last year's performance."
|double the value now then! :-)
Someone was out picking up 85K's today just as the announcement was going out.
Worth looking through at what Briget Blow-job has been doing Cambium. The excess property sale swill wipe out debt.
Leisure division was only got rid of in August.
The sale of Roadstar wipes out £3m+ loses per annum.
H2 will have greatly reduced stock, greatly reduced debt, reduced sales and much higher margins. I reckon H2 will be profitable, so much so that the earnings forecast of 9p in the coming year will look way too low imo. 12p eps in the coming year looks more than possible imo, PE 6 and great potential to grow earnings a a strong pace for several years - margins will be much higher in the future.
|Well, it certainly did as I expected! Halved its value since my last post....|
|brave position here CR, I hope it pays off|
|Well that's good news just out about Roadstar - reckon those large trades could be directors buying too.
Should move north imo.
|Worth a short soon as it always drops off a cliff after a nice rise, which is no doubt due to a shorter closing out for a handsome profit!|
|gone into early auction
you dont think there's anything else driving the price today, anyone??
|Great rise today - shame I couldn't interest anyone.
