|..according to advfn the price to sell is up 2p today.....after phps 25k shares bought..(8k pnds or so)...shows how illiquid it is...most shares are just held...|
I see that IDEA has a cap. value of 5-6 x turnover. Whereas for ELCO its about x 1.
I know which investment I prefer.|
|...hopefully at some time we'll get some text on how expansion in recent months in 2016 from Europe into the USA, using existing software products ( & in time from the recently acquired products :-) ), is going...|
|A buy of 10k shares gone thru at 30.5p....biggest trades at over 30p for months imho that hasnt been a bed and sipp....
imho it'll get there....under the radar with PIs imho, so far...cough & it cld jump since underpriced imo|
|...sell price is 29.3p...mid price close to moving above 30p
Cheap as chips !!|
|There we go again.|
|There we go again, a 50k buy (@ 30.5p) marked L(ate) 15 minutes after the market closed; yet the share price had closed down!|

hTTp://www.astapowerproject.com/news/brown-carroll-polishes-project-planning-asta-powerproject-enterprisejust/ [as always, read the full case study]|
|...30p level hopefully going to be broken soon...|
|I wonder if we will one day discover who has been doing the large buy and sell trades....|
|Still a bit surprised that the big buyer and big seller dont talk via the MM and do 1 big trade rather than numerous biggish trades...although smaller 'big' trades phps reduces their risk of not getting paid the cash !|
|..tight spread infers imho that the MMs have a buyer hence MMs dont need a bigger spread to reflect higher risk and interest cost of holding the shares themselves|
|120k sold this morning but online quote just now (for 25k) was a ridiculously tight 29.5/29.95p. It'll be interesting to see what is marked this afternoon, L(ate) or otherwise!|
|Btw real mkt price to sell is 29p.
Official mkt price to buy is 31p but negligible/no buy trades after the price moved up above 29.5p
...1 small sell booked this morning..
Illiquid..few nett trades ...hldrs are happy to hld imho....|
|Trades last week around 28-29p
& that is now the price to sell
..imho MMs are trying to buy shares to fill those orders ( or have no shares left and dont want to sell any more at 29p since might not be able to re-obtain from the mkt ..and they dont want to make a loss...
In any case the nett trades are tiny/negligible....with many trades being imo bed and SIPP/ISA ....and some big trades from big holders which cld have numerous reasons....(& phps organised by phone off mkt in advance.....or cld even be moving from fund 1 to fund 2 at same Institution)|
|Another mystery trade pulled out of the magician's hat this morning ... 275k @ 29.0p timed 17.39 on Friday (it wasn't there yesterday when I looked!). I wonder whether we'll see a RNS shortly to help explain these largish trades?|
|Jiggery-pokery, rathkum, we both know there are no better proponents at the art than Mingy Machs. I imagine you'd need at least a Masters Degree in the subject before you'd be considered for employment by them!
As you say, next week should be a tad more revealing.|
|..shall I help you chaps out ?
imho someone is doing on going accumulation ..while someone else has been off loading (otherwise the share price would have jumped!!) ..with small buys from PIs (cant understand why the buyer doesnt just phone the seller and do an offload, if I'm right)
Apart from first 2 the volume is negligible. Negligible, relative to total number of shares.
Which is quite normal considering that it is a micro cap with few public shareholders.
Dont worry about wiggles...which can be falsely moved...
Look at the trend...much harder to falsely move....clear up trend...
And perhaps breaking previous or 2 year high of around 30p ish...
imho strong buy ...even after recent rise
Imho 'the only way is up, baby'
Although some punters wont be interested since unlikely to double within 2 weeks.
.".clear the head" ...whisky and ginger...chardonnay is for girls ;-)|
|ansc - If the Chardonnay has cleared your head, mine hasn't.
Nice bit of jiggery-pokery by the MM. Observing the sequence of trades reported, I am still trying to get my head round the last 100,000 trade @28.15p when the previous one reported was @28.75p. Let's see what next week brings.|
|Hey-ho, interpret today's trading-marks if you can, I'd much appreciate any enlightenment. Five 100k supposedly sales marked ..... which clearly they all weren't what with the share price rising instead of falling ..... and a 10k buy marked (@ 29.5p) after the market closed when, just before closing, the spread was 29.0/30.25p.
I've surrendered and poured myself a glass of Chardonnay to clear my head!|
|Strange that, share price ticked up at c.12.40 pm but the 25k 'buy' only reported just after the market had closed. Does that look familiar?
edit: Oh, silly me, I'd forgotten the Mingy Machs have that magic crystal ball don't they!|
|A few 'buys' marked this morning so should we expect to see another L(ate) 100k 'sale' marked just before the market closes?
edit - 18.12: Not this time but I notice the 27.5k trade (clearly a 'buy') was marked L(ate) so it didn't get entered in the ADVFN buys column. Lol|
|A hat-trick for Asta Powerproject:
|Promoting underway at ICON already: hTTp://www.elecosoft.com/investor-releations/eventful-time-icon/
A pleasant surprise when I checked my online banking account this morning, finding an unexpected bank credit had been added ..... I'd forgotten ELCO's dividend payment was scheduled for today. Small but sweet nevertheless.|
|Pepper Construction (USA) Selects Asta Powerproject for Project Scheduling.
USA - 11/01/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Pepper Construction Group, one of the largest contractors in the Midwest, has selected Asta Powerproject for its project scheduling system.
The company, with nearly 1,000 employees and well-known clients in the commercial and private sectors, has long used technology to drive efficiency and, ultimately, a better finished product.
“Construction technology has evolved rapidly in the last 20 years," said Howie Piersma, vice president of IT at Pepper Construction. "That enabled innovation not only in how we deliver services but also in how we plan. We were looking for a software that would be as nimble as our team.”
Pepper's selection committee was looking for a fully capable, scalable, easy-to-integrate and simple-to-use system with an established track record and user community. After an exhaustive review of nearly a dozen options and an extensive trial of each, Asta Powerproject became the clear choice.
"At Pepper, we believe that investing more time in planning up front actually compresses our overall timeline," said Eric Bullion, Pepper project director. "Asta Powerproject will help us do that even more efficiently. The system is intuitive and customizable – providing our teams the ability to quickly produce a quality schedule in a way that supports the needs of each individual client."
The construction project software is the first choice of many leading contractors throughout the rest of the world and has been enjoying rapid adoption in North America since its introduction here in 2013. More than 100,000 schedulers worldwide rely on Asta Powerproject every day to create and update precise project schedules, collaborate across the enterprise, manage resources and costs, and report progress to owners and clients.
Catalyst, the Chicago-area reseller for Asta Powerproject completed the sale and will provide training.
"When people first look at Asta Powerproject, they typically like it," said Jim Dawkins, US channel manager of Elecosoft, the developers of Asta Powerproject. "But when they actually try it, they like it even more. For many firms, Asta Powerproject is simply the right tool for their project scheduling."
