|football: Why I’d Buy Blinkx Plc
While most Foolish investors would consider themselves to be long term (in terms of focusing on where a company may be years down the road rather than how it will perform next week) there has to be a point at which potential is translated into share price gain. Certainly, it can take a number of years for the potential within an idea or a company to be translated into profitability, but making a strong return on an investment is the only reason to buy a slice of any company.
This fact seems to be highly relevant when looking at two well-known smaller companies: Blinkx (LSE: BLNX) and Monitise (LSE: MONI). Both are loss-making at the present time, but have great products and, in Monitise’s case, a number of blue-chip customers. As such, their long-term futures appear to be relatively bright, with online payment solutions becoming increasingly widely used in the banking sector, and online advertising remaining a very strong growth market.
The problem, though, is turning great ideas into profit. As mentioned, it can take a number of years for this to occur, during which time the share price of the company concerned makes little in the way of a return for investors.
However, in the case of Blinkx, it seems to be doing all of the right things through which to return to the relatively high levels of profitability that it enjoyed prior to the last financial year. Its recent strategic announcement that it is consolidating its brand advertising divisions under one name: RhythmOne, seems to be a shrewd move and should help the company to not only appeal to potential customers, but to also improve efficiencies and communication within a business that has made multiple acquisitions in recent months.
As such, Blinkx appears to be on-track to meet its forecast of a black bottom line in the current year, and this could act as a catalyst on the company’s share price.
Meanwhile, Monitise continues to have a relatively unappealing outlook. For example, it is expected to post a loss of £77m in the current year, which would be an increase from last year’s loss of £63m. Certainly, next year is forecast to show an improvement, with Monitise set to deliver a loss of £33m, but this is still double the loss that the company posted all the way back in 2010. Since then, it has attracted new investors, more major clients, and the payments solutions marketplace has moved more towards Monitise’s offering in terms of using more technology.
Therefore, while it undoubtedly has long term potential, it still seems to be looking for the right business model through which to provide investors with a decent return. And, while its switch to a subscription-based model may help, it is unlikely to be sufficient to rejuvenate the company’s bottom line in the medium term.
With Blinkx set to drastically improve its financial performance within the next two years, it has a clear catalyst to push the company’s share price higher. Certainly, it must deliver on its upbeat forecasts, but if it is able to turn its bottom line around then its share price is likely to follow within the next couple of years. Monitise, however, is still some way off posting a profit and, with a recently appointed CEO, there are likely to be a number of changes over the coming months which could hurt the company’s share price. And, with there being little sign of a net profit in sight, it is difficult to see how investor sentiment in Monitise could be positively catalysed over the medium term. As such, Blinkx appears to be worth buying, while Monitise remains an interesting company to watch.
|sikhthetech: That's so true... "The majority of regular posters on here are likely to be way underwater so the idea taking profit at 38/39p is a lost hope." the gang, with their multiple ids, kept them hooked by deliberately posting misleading posts and posting selective info... Keep an eye on the newsflow and do your own research... MidasX 13 May'15 - 09:57 - 95179 of 95267 6 0 esco, In the ideal traders world a share price goes up, people like yourself take profit and try to persuade others to do the same, the share price goes down, you buy back in again and try to persuade others to do the same etc etc et.......... In todays world of high frequency trading profit is made without any REAL share price movement being required. It may not always work if a company has been attacked and the share price does not truly reflect existing potential. If you look back at the Blinkx share price it has definitely not obeyed standard stock market rules. The majority of regular posters on here are likely to be way underwater like myself and so the idea of taking profit at 38/39p is a lost hope. Blinkx has the potential to move much higher very quickly, I hope you do not miss the ride, but then again there are lots more stocks to trade.|

|1gw: The "co*k-up" (in my view) is in deciding to make the options award more aligned to shareholders interests by including the 50p shareprice threshold. I think the Remuneration Committee would have approved the magnitude of the award (e.g. £1m). They then had the option of paying this in RSUs (shares), options with vesting periods (the "old" sort of options) or options with a shareprice threshold. An RSU award would have involved the least shares since it has the value of the current share price; the "old" option would have involved more shares (because it has zero exercisable value before it has vested and then is only of exercisable value to the extent the share price is above the exercise price); the threshold options involve the most shares because the share price has to get above the threshold which is significantly less likely than it staying above the exercise price. So for example they may have had 1m "old" options or 7m "threshold" options as being equivalent value (I don't know what the equivalence is, but I feel sure the Remuneration Committee would have this information). In electing the threshold options they thought they were aligning better to shareholder interests but did not consider how such a large award would look to shareholders who had seen the shareprice fall from over £2.|
|gowlane: So SC resigns on 19 July 2012, and SBM takes over. The share price doesn’t bounce around very much, it is at 37.25p on 20 July. By now SBM has now been three years in charge, and what price is the share price at now? The princely sum of 25P – down by one third since he took over!!!! Along the way he had share placings at much higher levels including one at 195p in late 2013 Most puzzling of all on the 6 July 2015 with the share price at 28p he is awarded an amazing 7m share options which can be cashed in if the share price ever reaches 50p. Nice work if you can get it. But what is it all for? As Jose Mourinho might have said, he has become a specialist in failure|
|1gw: football - there was some misinformation going around yesterday about the options (from shareholders, not from Ed). As I understand it, these are market value options. i.e. they are exerciseable at the market price prevailing when granted. The RNS quotes the exercise price for the 7m at 27.75p. They vest over 3 years, as previous executive blinkx options have done. But in addition there is the share price hurdle (the 50p). So the share price has to get to 50p (and stay there for a while I believe) before any of the 7m shares vest (i.e. before he can cash them in). So if say 2m vest at 50p and he cashes them in straight away then he gets (50p-27.75p)=22.25p profit per share (i.e. £445k), less tax and NI. Then I think there is something about accelerated vesting if further hurdles are met. I'm not sure how this works exactly, but it may be that if the normal vesting schedule is 2.33m in year 1 (subject to the 50p hurdle), 2.33m year 2, 2.33m year 3, then some of the later amounts are moved forward if the higher hurdles are hit. eg. if the share price reaches 75p in year 1 then maybe 4m shares vest in year 1 instead of 2.33m with the remaining 3m spread over years 2 and 3.|
|sikhthetech: Barky & Jarvis... I think the company's advisors have blown a hole into your conspiracy theory that the share price has been manipulated down for larger shareholders to buy cheap...oops.. football 28 Jul'15 - 09:11 - 9557 of 9560 0 0 stocky you'll be glad to know that the company's advisers think this is normal for a share price to drop from 40p to's 26p it's just a bit of market volatility and nothing to do with major shareholders manipulating the share price down.|
|1gw: I think its just badly thought-through. Traditionally they have granted market-value options which vest after 3-4 years. These can be valued if you have the right models. Effectively I think they are not far off a gift of shares since once vested they have an exercise period of many years and therefore if held until close to expiration the effect of compound expected growth would be to take the share price to a multiple of the exercise price. What they have done with the latest award though is to introduce a hurdle rate of 50p - so although they are market value options they can't be exercised until the share price almost doubles. If you then try to value these options you will get a lower value because over the (10-year?) exercise period there is a (probably lowish but still) material chance that the share price never reaches the threshold. So with the latest award they have to raise the number of shares under option significantly to give the same value of award.|
