|simon - Yesterday morning the quoted spread was 190-193 although the real spread was more like 190.75-192. Quoted spread today is currently 193-198 although real spread looks more like 195.5-198. So there has been some improvement there. Steady rise is of course far preferable to sudden unsustainable spikes. I have noted that the 'Simon Thompson effect' has been far less marked over the past couple of years on most of his subject companies which is probably a good thing but the positive publicity should be supportive over the longer term so long as the company continues to meet/exceed expectations.

|Unusually for a Simon Thompson tip, this didn't nudge the share price, but I suspect that's just a reflection of how often he has tipped Amino, most subscribers have already bought in.|
|Update by Simon Thompson (Investors Chronicle) today. Moves from RUN PROFITS to BUY with increase in price target from 200p to 220p...

|Thanks for the link hastings, very informative article as ever :-)|
|Penned a few words that may be of interest to others.
|There's a buyer for every seller....|
|Welcome aboard! Why would buys show as sells?|
|Just bought in - technically strong with great stock rank score. Buys showing as sells!|
|simonsaid1 - the rule is that they declare when they go through an exact % point. Hence Miton at 15.87% would need to declare after buying another 0.13% of the share capital. Alternatively they could sell 0.86% without having to declare.|
|Its already 4 bagged from the break & completed the LT bowl height - so not start of new life cycle but nearer end - def has more to go mind (it has broken out) - but likely not multi bag territory anymore.
That's poss why the brokers aren't ramping it heavily. Not that you can trust the brokers much - their targets v obv match the LT resistance stages.|
|LuckyMouse, care to elaborate what you mean?|
|That's the answer I guess|
|I think the 2,500 @ 190.6 at 15 20 was probably the last private punter (who may or may not have read IC). The rest was more serious money - 15k, 7 x 25k, 4 x 50k, 100k, 275k and 300k all @ 191 and 47.5k @ 190.57.
Make of that what you will, it doesn't detract from the fact that this is on a ten year closing high.
We could see institutional changes. The present large holders are:
Holder Shares % Held
Kestrel Partners LLP AS OF 12 JAN 2017 12.23m 17.09%
Miton Asset Management Ltd AS OF 12 AUG 2016 11.36m 15.87%
Investec Wealth & Investment Ltd. AS OF 21 MAR 2016 4.38m 6.12%
Schroder Investment Management Ltd. AS OF 09 NOV 2016 3.23m 4.51%
Hargreave Hale Ltd. AS OF 02 NOV 2016 2.72m 3.80%|
|Tks Hyper - don't fully understand that tbh (loads & loads of exceptionals & adjusteds?) - does it specifically answer my questions?
1) 2) & 3)
Grateful for individual response to those if poss (in laymans) - especially if its largely a one off leap that has already happened or start of a v aggressive new cycle.
|Good catch Hyperboreus, 600k @ 191p (plus another 300k order that was cancelled). Hard to tell if it was a buy or sell, but the bid price was only about 188p at the time, if that's any kind of clue. Hoping it was a buy on the back of the IC reiteration. There were also 2 identical trades of 25k each right about the same time, so this may have been related. Could well open high tomorrow.|
|Huge volume of shares (for Amino that is) changing hands @191p in the last hour or so of trading|
|For your further information LuckyMouse:
Exceptional items included within operating expenses in 2016 comprised:
£3.6m contingent post-acquisition remuneration in respect of the Entone acquisition;
£0.4m post acquisition integration costs which included additional travel and contractor costs resulting from
activities to integrate the enlarged Group; and
£0.8m redundancy and associated costs.
Depreciation and amortisation
Excluding amortisation of intangibles recognised on acquisition, depreciation and amortisation increased to £3.3m
(2015: £2.4m) and is expected to increase further in 2017 as further research and development costs are capitalised.
Amortisation of intangibles recognised on acquisition was £2.2m (2015: £0.8m).
Adjusted operating profit excluding share-based payment charges, exceptional items and amortisation of intangibles
recognised on acquisition was £10.2m (2015: £5.1m). Statutory operating profit was £2.9m (2015: £0.3m).
The two new companies bought by Amino Technologies (AMO) in 2015 had an excellent impact on the group’s performance last year. On an adjusted basis revenue was up 80 per cent, while operating profit doubled. The group’s cash flow remains impressive with 149 per cent of cash profits converted in the year. The result is a 10 per cent dividend hike. The outlook is also strong and broker FinnCap has raised its profit and earnings expectations for the current financial year. BUY|
|'Statutory profit before tax up 867% to £2.9m'
Don't see that everyday -
1) have they swung (more or less) from loss to profit?
2) And are the v big results %s largely a one off jump due to the acquisitions or duplicable going fwd?
3) Why the brokers not falling over themselves to hugely raise?
|To be fair to Progressive Equity they were forecasting 2016 EPS of 13.5, not sure if they have increased their 2017 forecast yet but they were forecasting 14.0p|
|PROGRESSIVE Equity Research Alert
2016 financials demonstrate strong execution
With the outcome in line with our forecasts, the key message from
Amino’s FY 2016 results is one of strong execution. The company is
gaining solid commercial traction from the expanded product
portfolio and re-focused sales and marketing activities. The outlook
statement provides positive commentary on the sales pipeline and
order book, and the re-iteration of the existing progressive dividend
policy for the current financial year is a further indication of
|I am QS99 you too! :o)|
|indeed, don't disagree! Great re Finncapp and N+1 look as though they are upgrading (DYOR) and are upbeat about prospects from what I have just read....looking forward to breaking through that £2 barrier, hopefully following the usual IR phone calls after 9am this morning...
have a good one hyperboreus|
|QS99 I am not saying 3.2% is bad at all but given the rapid increase in share price over the last 12 months the yield has decreased significantly if buying now.
Anyhow moving on, Finncapp have just increased their target price for what it is worth from 200p to 220p|
