|I did see an idiotic comment possibly further up this thread which said 'I only buy penny shares in the 20-50p range. It did make me chuckle!|
|With that mindset you should also know that the PI herd like low numbers when it comes to an share price They don't seem to understand that it's percentage rises that matter.
EG they can see a .1p share going 10p a 100 bagger with no appreciation of the outrageous market cap that would create. They can't see a £7 share 3 bagging let alone 100 bag yet the MC may be the same as the .1p share.
Then there is the how many shares they can get for £500. 500,000 in one case and 71 in the other.
Why they think like that I don't know but low SPs offer up bigger dreams it seems with the maths being irrelevant.|
I can't argue with that one, good reply.
'When has fact ever got in the way of a good story?'
Yep hype is a big driver of share prices but unfortunately or fortunately depending on your view graphene is not exciting the punters at this time as can be see by volumes on all participants.
AGM had a run on that bit in the FT and Moneyweek imo, I watch them all closely. Lot's of small buys suggesting hype punts on AGM. The volume could soon die off and cause it to drift. No material news for a month at least due to the CFO buy.
Free options today hmmmmm nice if you can get them and it fits with my thoughts on the multiple highly paid positions.
With an share price incentive to get their options that leaves the BS channel firmly open.
If there is to be a hype run on graphene then Versarien has the facts to support such a run as will be seen in the very near future, the world leader in the sector.
Room for all, not pitching against AGM. I'm just warning you that after a lot of research it seems the AGM tech isn't going the way they want and they seem to be spending most of the cash raised on salaries for a raft of unnecessary senior positions (25 of the 45).
Good luck, I agree the share price has little to do with fact and if you stir up material interest in graphene, then in share price terms all graphene related shares should get a boost.|
|Thank you for the advice
Well it hasn't got in the way of the enthusiasm today with it finishing 23% up.
When has fact ever got in the way of a good story?
I rode the internet wave which saw some of my shares rise 60 times on hype. I like a bit of hype. Something good will come out of it - eventually.|
You need to do some research tech is failing to live up to claims and the volume is clearly a number of low value punts after seeing the article.
They have gone nowhere on their tech in 3 years it's not producing what they thought hey could do. 45 staff 25 of which so far have been identified as senior or manager roles.
The average salary costs is coming out at £70-£75k. It's a big wage bill will very little showing for it.
It's important to understand this sector or folk will get caught on false hype.|
|Odd how this has been completely ignored yet went up 10% on Friday and 14% today so far, on low volume.
25th Jan: Feature on the BBC about a dress made of Graphene being sported in the Trafford Centre Manchester. Maybe it was a Northern only cast.
27th Jan: Huge article in Moneyweek singling out the companies to focus on.
27th Jan announcement (below) that the CFO Designate Garther Jones had bought 14,500 shares in the company.
All good, positive news flow.

New contract. Century has introduced a new range of fishing rods to the market, containing the Group's graphene nanoplatelets. These fishing rods are being sold under the brand Graphex.
Fishing Rods? is this a big deal? They are well advertised see Google search

|Full year results are at: http://www.investegate.co.uk/Index.aspx?searchtype=3&words=agm
Looks to me as if a cash call is inevitable with a loss of £4.0m and cash of £4.7m. But at least with all the options flying about, the loss per share is really less than stated.
The pronouncements are very encouraging, the bottom line not.|

Joint Development Agreements and Collaborations
Applied Graphene Materials plc, the producer of specialty graphene materials, is pleased to announce that the Group has entered into a Joint Development Agreement with Puralube Germany GmbH (shortly to be known as "Puraglobe"), a German based lubricants and oils business that has developed technologies to refine used lubricants and oils. Puraglobe's products are sold to a global customer base for use in applications such as motor oils, hydraulic oils, automatic transmission fluids, process oils, metal working fluids and industrial oils.
Under the Joint Development Agreement, Applied Graphene Materials will develop and format dispersions of its graphene nanoplatelets for inclusion in Puraglobe's sustainable base oil products and speciality technologies. It is anticipated that as result of the collaboration, Puraglobe's graphene loaded base oils will be used across a wide range of industrial and automotive applications, where the unique friction and wear properties of graphene will add significant performance gains as lubricants and machining fluids.
Applied Graphene Materials and Puraglobe are in discussions with several companies seeking to improve the performance of a range of machinery whilst also looking to deliver reduced environmental impact and lower CO2 output through the use of Puraglobe's sustainable products. The Joint Development Agreement with Puraglobe is the second direct Joint Development Agreement where the Group has been permitted to name its commercial counterparty, following on from the announcement in September, of the Group's collaboration with Millers Oils.
As previously reported, the pace and momentum of commercial progress has continued to accelerate. Applied Graphene Materials is engaged with a large number of customers, many of them leaders in their market, where the exact nature of activities remains confidential due to commercial sensitivity. This includes a recent Joint Development Agreement with a European speciality polymers and composites business with niche development activity across the aerospace, automotive and leisure industries. The Group's collaboration partner wishes to preserve confidentiality at this stage, however the agreement is particularly focused on finding early adoption opportunities for graphene nanoplatelets where the material's multi-functionality offers clear benefits. Typical of the properties the collaboration will look to exploit are mechanical toughening, thermal and electrical conductivity as well as enhanced fire resistance.
Applied Graphene Materials' full year results for the year ended 31 July 2015 are now expected to be announced on Monday 16 November 2015. This represents a change from the previously announced results date.|
|Thought update was positive especially the part around investing in a production facility and number of samples taken over the last quarter.|
|7 to 9% spread.... hmm...
MM's want pi's to take all the risk intraday.|
|Appears to be gaining some sort of critical mass.
I would imagine getting to 24 hour production will greatly enhance cash flow.|
|I have no holding here but came accross this that may be of interest, mentions AGM

Positive results from independent oil trials
Applied Graphene Materials, the producer of specialty graphene materials, is pleased to report positive preliminary findings following independent performance testing on base oils enhanced using graphene produced by the Group. The performance testing was undertaken by BfB Oil Research in Belgium ("BfB").
Base oils are used in a wide range of industries including the manufacture of lubricating greases, motor oils and metal processing fluids.
BfB's initial results demonstrate that low loading levels of the Group's graphene nanoplatelets, within base oils, reduce friction and the wear of metal surfaces. This opens up the route to further development for commercial applications in numerous high performance oils and greases.
Applied Graphene Materials will be sharing the findings of the BfB test programme with its tribology and lubrication industry partners and will also be engaging with other interested parties at the Global Tribology Oil and Lubrication (STLE) Exhibition in Dallas, Texas, between 17 May and 20 May 2015.
Jon Mabbitt, Chief Executive Officer, commented:
"Following on from our recent positive independent coatings trial results, it is pleasing to now receive BfB Oil Research's initial findings on graphene enhanced base oils which indicate that these positive results can be translated to higher volume applications. With a scalable manufacturing process, our growing library of test data and a strong technical team, Applied Graphene Materials is well placed to help its customers apply and exploit graphene in their end products and markets."
Michael Boucher, BfB's Technical Manager, commented:
"The results from our test work are very instructive and show that Applied Graphene Materials' well dispersed graphene nanoplatelets offer the potential for significant property improvements in oils and greases. We look forward to continuing to support Applied Graphene Materials' ongoing development work."|
|According to the FT 32.04% of shares were held by top holders on April 5th
Northstar Ventures Limited took 7.38% on April 21th
Baillie Gifford & Co took 5.74% on April 22nd
IP Group plc took 32% today.
Add 10% owned by the co's professor Karl Coleman.
Meaning 87% of shares are held by major shareholders.
So 2.21 million shares are not held by major shareholders.

The news lads. I'm now in all three shares GRPH AGM HAYD which all have had unusual movement for no reason.
None seems to have a news sense. Good news sends up shares. Is it the employees buying?

|So now we know why the stock shot up at the beginning of the month. Leaky!|
|Yes, technically it's called a retracement. Was expected.|
