|ali - eps is fairly pedestrian for the next year as apparently their tax rate increases from 5 to 16%. Nevertheless looking for an upgrade at some juncture.|
|sorry gerald can you clarify about the taxed eps and why did the shake some out? very sensible and helpful comments here but in the absence of news its very difficult why the share price is drifting|
|Goodnight Closetinvestor. I still feel this a good top up point. I feel in hindsight I didn't top up enough after the last results. I'm annoyed there has been no trading update.|
|Managed to get some at 145.The higher taxed eps numbers might have shook some out. GLA|
|I have added again. Finncap Note from 5th Dec 2016 highlights valuation of up to 190p. Management are conservative in their estimates after the pain caused during the dotcom boom and I would be very disappointed and surprised to see a profit warning or similar bad news that the recent price action would suggest.|
|mfhmfh ... but there was also a director selling 500,000 shares more recently. No position yet for me, but waiting to see if price stabilises.|
|Agree with above comment.
Also, 'Peter Simmonds, Chairman, bought 70,000 shares in the company on the 29th November 2016 at a price of 142.00p. The Director now holds 251,500 shares.'
Similar price now to the price paid by the chairman. I'm looking to top-up.|
|Good level to enter IMO, great organic growth rate for this company, just bored holders selling up. RSI is also looking very oversold and primed for a turn at this level.|
|Thanks amen corner. Not holding at present but may get back in.|
|battlebus, looking at the individual trades, I don't reckon it's an individual seller but more likely stops getting triggered as the price drifts down.
Would be nice if the company gave us a trading update; well, nice if it's a good update anyway.
Should that happen with a positive update then IMO the price will rattle up quickly.|
|Who is the seller at the minute??|
|My stop was hit earlier so i am out, suspect shaken out. I'm going to wait until it calms down before reviewing.|
|Looking to buy more around 150 but they wont drop the offer price to those levels, its the bid price theyre shifting down|
|Can buy in size around 156.5p.|

Topping up this AM looks like a good call.
With a market cap of around £60m (38m shares x 156p = £59.3m) I'm surpised that MM live from hand to mouth for a company of this size.
I see the company is taking on staff:
|eagle eye - I am no Technical expert but there was a Gap at C:150p from early December. This was filled and at the same time took out plenty of stops. It then bounced. I topped up at the bell when I realised what (I think) was going on. Should rise from here IMO.|
This only came off because one sale of 20,000 shares caused a cascade of small sells|
What does that tell us?
Possibly the reason why the share price fell sharply in the last hour.
If this IS the reason, then maybe a temporary overhang issue which should be cleared once MM find buyers to make a profitable turn.
Hopefully its nothing more than that.|
|See post 245 for earnings.Tax charge makes earnings below 10p for 2 years.Some people might not be too impressed.|
|A profit warning looks unlikely unless the company isn't being straight with us. The interims sounded rosy. They showed a 44% increase in eps accompanied by this comment.
"D4t4 Solutions trading remains strong and, since the start of the second half of the financial year, we are pleased to report that we have secured a number of additional contracts including one with a leading US retailer and one with a UK based insurance company."
Last year's eps for the full year was 8.13p. If the second half increase in eps only just matches the 1st half increase in eps, the eps for the full year will be around the 12p mark, putting the shares on a p/e of 12. For a tech stock (with unique software apparently) that does look very very cheap.|
|ali, a wise man once said: more sell; price fall. More buy; price rise. No need conclusion. Conclusion draw itself.|
|sorry what doe all this tell us - ia looking fo a conclusion to draw if there is one?|
|It looks like it was a lumpy seller of 20K at 15.48pm.
The spread was 157-164 only a minute before and the block was sold at 151.4p.
A few other sellers appeared as the bid price fell away.|
