|I do hope so, getting bored of looking at a 25% loss :-)|
|Decided to get back in this morning, with short term targets in place. From 14 to 10p is a significant retrace, and assuming the story is still on track, the peak should be revisited in the medium term.|
|just need a few contracts. Forget any weird support levels.
due something from them pretty soon I hope.|
|I would say support at 9p.. might be worth waiting for.|
|Big sell finally worked and gone through - perhaps it will now start to recover|
|blimey we need some good news soon. Come on you salesmen what are you playing at fingers out please.
Its getting financially rather painful.|
|Must be sell order being worked.|
I've followed you, buying at 11.073p. On the chart it looks like its around the bottom, extrapolating a line from Jan 2017 and 1 Dec 2017.|
|Added - been waiting for a pullback like this.|
|Wild guess; three holders have hit stop levels and sold about £10K each. Or could be one person and three orders to sell. Looks like someone is buying at this level though.|
|Why the big fall ?|
|new sales team in place for several months now, new products and show finished. Sales contracts please.|
|Filtronic attends Mobile World Congress 2017
Filtronic is at Mobile World Congress, ready to highlight the new technology developed in both of its business units, Filtronic Wireless and Filtronic Broadband.
Filtronic Wireless launches the ‘Next Generation Base Station Antennas’. Two new products will feature in this launch; Kodiak and Atlas.
Kodiak is the new 8-port quadband antenna, and Atlas the 10-port pentaband antenna. The highlighted features of these next generation antennas are the Integrated RET, 1.4GHz band for IMT, and an industry-leading narrow panel width and high gain.
As well as the new antenna products, Filtronic Wireless will show a number of items from the current portfolio of equipment sharing products and interference mitigation filters.
Filtronic Broadband has arrived with its next-generation E-band radio module, Morpheus - The Highest Performance ODU-Ready E-band Transceiver. Building on the market-leading performance and field proven quality of the previous generation module, Orpheus.
Further to the release of Morpheus, Filtronic Broadband also announces the release of its new E-band power amplifier, Cerus. Suitable for all E-band point-to-point applications, the Cerus booster amplifier can be easily integrated with Filtronic transmitter modules for extending effective range in high-capacity data links.
Mobile World Congress is the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry, organised by the GSMA and held in Barcelona, 27 February – 2 March 2017. Filtronic can be found in Hall 7 on stand C71.|
|Any sign of the new products they said they were announcing this month at the Mobile show?
Nothing new on the web site|
|Not sure what you guys are talking about but yes intrigued to see who has been buying recently. One more decent sized contract needed and then potential predator could show himself before the company is revalued upwards. Rope for takeover imo.|
|Yes, wisecat, it would be interesting to know who bought the stock, but a 2.4 million purchase will not on its own trigger an RNS unless the buyer already had say 3.6 million shares. But certainly I think that you are right in suggesting that the stock has come from North of the border. Nice to see that they are teasing the price upwards though, and also nice to see some old school broking in action at last !|
|Large buyer of 2.4m shares just been printed. Stock may have come from Scotland but more interesting will be who bought the stock. Hopefully a new institution.
A little bit of old school there|
|A bit of promotion between the company and house broker to drum up interest and they could always do a book build (look at recent XLM).|
|Yes, wisecat, I am so old school that I really thought that it was the responsibility of the house broker to facilitate large scale disinvestments in their client companies, but clearly times have changed. But surely there must be an enterprising broker out there who can make 4 or 5 buyers and then bid Aberforth for their holding. Now that really would make the house broker look a bit silly.
Meum pactum dictum !|
|Mesquida You must be old school. Ref your comment re placing the stake, there seems little incentive nowadays for brokers to pick up the phone.|
|I now note that the million trade was actually delayed from Thursday, and so on reflection it probably was a purchase rather than a sale. However my comments in previous post re Aberforth still stand, and indeeed I would be very surprised if the 250k booked out last night @ 12.1 was not a sale by them. The only good thing about them selling is that at least they are not forcing it down, but of course their continued sales do rather put a lid on the price for the time being.|
|Suspect that the 1 million trade @12.25 is a sale from Friday, presumably Aberforth feeding the market. We really need to see the rump of their stake placed before we get the re-rating that we deserve. Personally I would have thought that it would now be relatively easy for the house broker to arrange a clean-up operation. After all, Aberforth have made it quite clear that they need to sell out, the house broker simply has to broke the story to a few new institutions, and with the figures now in the public domain that really should not be that difficult a task for them.|
|Late print just posted on ADVFN trades. 1m shares at 12.25p timed at 15:29hrs, not from today.|
|Chart appears to be bouncing from a lower high after the recent sell on news. I've had this on my watch since new year and have bought my first batch today. There have been some decent lumps get bought today (not mine, I'll tell you if my lump is decent when I'm ready to sell it) so hopefully start of the next leg up.|
|Worth a read, very upbeat....
NetPark-based firm returns to profit amid strong demand
A TECHNOLOGY company hopes new contracts can provide scope to bolster operations at a North-East factory.
Filtronic says it cannot rule out expansion at its County Durham base after a reversal of financial losses left the business “in a healthier position than it has been for several years”.
Rob Smith, chief executive, told The Northern Echo the firm was in talks with potential customers, which if successful, could create jobs at its NetPark broadband site, in Sedgefield.
The plant is known for developing Filtronic’s Orpheus e-band transceivers, which increase the amount of data phone networks can carry, and will play a key role in a £13m national security deal to supply high-frequency modules to a defence equipment maker for aerospace work.
However, Mr Smith said potential remains for its order book to ramp up further, with new staff added to support such growth, if ongoing contract negotiations prove fruitful.
Talking yesterday, after a financial update showed Filtronic had recorded a £1.8m operating profit in the six months to November 30, Mr Smith said those talks still had some way to go, but revealed bosses were feeling increasingly confident.
He told the Echo: “This is what we have been working to; it’s a good solid performance.
“It’s been a superb job by the team and our goal now is to win additional customers.
“We are feeling pretty bullish about the opportunities but we are also under no illusions “As soon as we achieve one milestone, there is another to go for.”
Filtronic was previously forced into a cost-cutting drive after delays to product introductions hit revenues.
Bosses subsequently launched a turnaround plan, revealing defence and aerospace contracts would complement deals in the cyclical telecoms sector, and Mr Smith said the blueprint was working well.
The £13m aerospace deal won’t start until towards the end of its current financial year, however, Mr Smith said its impact was already tangible since it is providing a platform to showcase the company’s expertise.|
