littleredrooster: My estimate is that an early investment in IBG has significantly outperformed Google but the real star has been Amazon, and I would expect that I have benefitted from the rise in the Amazon share price via my investment in a global technology fund (and probably other such collective investments). http://www.telegraph.co.uk/investing/shares/amazon-20-shareholders-have-gained-49000pc-others-lost-94pc/ Amazon at 20: some shareholders have gained 49,000pc, others lost 94pc James Connington 20 May 2017 • 7:23am Investors who stuck with Amazon over the past two decades would have enjoyed a return of nearly 49,000pc, despite a 94pc collapse in its shares when the tech bubble burst at the turn of the millennium. This week marked the 20th anniversary of the online retail giant’s public listing. The stock has been “split” multiple times over its lifespan. Share splits involve investors being given, for example, 10 shares for each they already own. This dilutes the value of each share but prevents them becoming prohibitively expensive. Adjusting for share splits, Amazon closed its first day of trading on May 15 1997 at $1.96 a share, after a 30.5pc rise that day. Today the stock trades at $959. However, the ascent of Amazon's share price has not been smooth. During the 1999 tech bubble it hit a high of around $107 before collapsing to $6 by late 2001 - a 94pc loss. Many retail investors own Amazon through funds, as it has become a perennial favourite of professional investors who target growth. Of the 3,636 funds included in the classification system of the Investment Association, the trade body, 113 have Amazon as a top-10 holding, according to data service FE. A constant cause of concern for many investors is the company's valuation, and whether it can be justified. On a price to earnings (p/e) basis, it has repeatedly looked untenable. The p/e ratio measures share price relative to annual earnings per share. At times Amazon's p/e has registered in the thousands, and its average since 1997 is 236. Today it sits at 182 according to data service Bloomberg, compared with 23 for the wider US market. These valuations have not prevented the share price from rising, and many investors see Amazon as unique and almost impossible to imitate. The business is notoriously guarded in terms of explaining its investments - even to fund managers - but many investors believe in its ability to innovate and disrupt existing sectors to continue to deliver growth. hxxp://www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/082715/if-you-had-invested-right-after-amazons-ipo.asp If You Had Invested Right After Amazon's IPO By Investopedia | Updated May 15, 2017 — 11:09 AM EDT "Today — May 15, 2017 — is the 20th anniversary of Amazon.com Inc.'s (Nasdaq: AMZN) initial public offering (IPO). Those in the investment industry know that Amazon has been a hot stock for quite some time. However, this was not always the case. When Amazon first went public in 1997, its stock was priced at just $18 per share. From that modest beginning, the online retail giant has seen its stock skyrocket, despite a rocky period during the dot-com crash. In fact, if you had invested just $100 in Amazon's IPO, that investment would have been worth $63,990 by close last Friday. On the 20th anniversary of its IPO, the stock price opened at $958.68, slightly under the all time high the previous week at $962. Hidden Growth It is clear from the figures above that even a modest investment in the company in 1997 would have turned into a healthy contribution to anyone's retirement savings. In fact, the stock has multiplied almost 491 times, using the split-adjusted close of $1.96."

littleredrooster: http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/NASDAQ/TSLA/share-news/What-Is-Tesla-Really-Worth-Heard-on-the-Street/74347159 What Is Tesla Really Worth?--Heard on the Street 16/04/2017 7:26pm Dow Jones News By Charley Grant Tesla Inc. is valued as though it will soon conquer the U.S. auto market. Now, it has the small task of actually doing so. Tesla shares have been unstoppable ahead of the Model 3 launch, having gained 40% this year. The upstart auto maker is more valuable than Ford and slightly less valuable than General Motors on a market cap basis. The crux of the excitement is the all-electric Model 3 sedan that Tesla says will start at $35,000. Production is scheduled to begin this summer. Tesla now trades at 271 times projected 2018 adjusted earnings, according to FactSet. Ford and GM, in contrast, trade at less than seven and six times the 2018 estimate, respectively. Tesla gets that valuation because it is expected to upend the auto industry, while earning big profits that would bring down the multiple. But to actually earn enough profits to reduce Tesla's multiple to something in the realm of reasonable would require almost heroic assumptions. First, the basics: Say Tesla's valuation should be 10 times higher than GM and Ford's, and say Tesla's share price stays constant at about $300. That means Tesla would need to earn $4.29 a share in 2018, which equals $700 million in total net income, assuming the current share count doesn't change. For perspective, Tesla sold about 76,000 cars in 2016 and lost $675 million on sales of $7 billion. Now the assumptions: CEO Elon Musk forecasts Tesla can produce 500,000 cars in 2018, while analysts, a bullish lot, peg the number of deliveries at 302,000. Let's say the delivery number is 380,000. Pencil in an average selling price of $50,000 -- Tesla will still be selling high-priced Model S and Model X vehicles along with the Model 3. That scenario yields just under $21 billion in automotive revenue. Add another $2 billion in sales from its residential solar and energy businesses. Tesla has never generated a positive operating margin for a full year, but assume it gets savings on battery costs and realizes economies of scale. If Tesla gets the same 5.4% operating margin that GM and Ford averaged last year, it would generate operating income of $1.1 billion. Subtract $200 million for interest expense and tax the remainder at 25%: The result is $700 million in net income, giving Tesla a multiple roughly 10 times bigger than GM and Ford. To get there, the company would have to quintuple the number of cars it sells, earn margins equivalent to those of its highly efficient competitors and not sell new shares. Tweak any of these variables -- lower sales, lower margin, lower selling price -- and Tesla doesn't come close to earning enough to get to 10 times the multiple of its bigger rivals by the end of 2018. Valuation has never mattered before for Tesla's investors and it may not matter at the end of next year. Shareholders may be willing to wait five years instead of two for Tesla to generate big profits, or they may continue to figure that valuation doesn't matter for a game-changer like Tesla. Tesla's cars have always outshone its financials. That needs to change soon for its valuation to make sense.

littleredrooster: hxxp://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/02/07/aws_bigger_than_the_next_three/ AWS cloud cash share: Bigger than Microsoft, IBM, Google COMBINED Cloud democratising IT? Nah, it's shared by even fewer players 7 Feb 2017 at 12:25, Gavin Clarke AWS sucked up over one third of all cloudy infrastructure sales globally in the closing quarter of 2016 - more than three of its next biggest rivals could muster together. The total IaaS sector grew by a whopping 49 per cent year-on-year to $10.3bn in Q4, according to analyst house Canalys, as a raft of businesses continued to shun capital intensive refreshes of on-premise server estates. In its tenth year of operation, the web services division of Amazon accounted for $3.48bn of sales, giving it a 33.8 per cent market share, while Microsoft, Google and IBM SoftLayer had to make do with $3.17bn between them. “Continuing demand is driving the adoption of cloud infrastructure services, which accelerated the cloud data centre expansion among key service providers,” Canalys stated. In the quarter, IBM rented some rack space from a local data centre provider, as did AWS and Microsoft. All of the American giants are trying to convince UK customers their data is safe in their hands but rather than building new facilities in the country, has chosen to buy extra capacity from someone else. Enterprise IT provider Oracle lagged behind e-commerce giant Alibaba, on 1.7 per cent and 2.4 per cent respectively. The latter has been on a drive to attract enterprises and startups to its cloud with roadshow events in London. AWS is the undisputed IaaS kingpin but revenues of $3.5bn in Q4 was below Wall Street’s expectations by about $100m and so the parent company’s share price took a few knocks. Meanwhile, Synergy Research Group agreed that AWS is king, and said Microsoft, Google and IBM "are gaining ground but at the expense of smaller players in the market." 23 Comments

scburbs: Thanks Hosede, I am pleased to say that the share price seems to have responded promptly to my complaints that it wasn't moving in line with the current bloodbath (although a rather longer wait from my initial short position during which time the world has become a very different place!). A few directors getting itchy feet to realise some more value before it disappears or institutional shareholder also with itchy feet?

jollychappy: One of Datacash's largest US peers Cybersource is making an acquisition of a rival called authorize.net at 38x 2008 earnings. If Datacash was put on the same valuation this would give a share price of 420p vs current price of 290p, another 40% upside. Company fundamentals at Datacash look extremely good (see earlier posting). BUY

scburbs: Those who have done well holding DATA might want to take a view as to whether to hold on results day (25th September). Perhaps a strategy of selling and repurchasing post results if there are no problems would be wise and would lock in the good profits you have made. I am short and expect that the interims may disappoint at the eps level. I may be wrong, but I just wouldn't want to hold this one long across results day. Current share price 265.5p Market cap £243m Historic eps/PE 8p/33 Prospective eps/PE (current year) 8.63p/31 Why is it a good short? 45m new shares were issued at 136.5p in May 2006 to acquire Proc Cyber for £61.3m. The current value of those shares is £119.5m. At the same time the number of options were doubled as this represented 50% of the share capital at the time at the vendor wanted the right to retain 50%. Wow, the share price has nearly doubled since. Was that a really good acquisition? Unfortunately not! "Proc Cyber is a provider of risk management, payment processing, payment out solutions and financial reconciliation services predominantly to the online gaming markets" http://www.investegate.co.uk/Article.aspx?id=200605080700055686C Investec estimated that post the acquisition US gaming accounted for 30% of group sales and 40-45% of profits! As this is referring to the combined group the proportions in the acquired business would have been higher. The share price promptly plunged from 220p to around 130p in response to the Safe Port Act. This was the company's statement on this. http://www.investegate.co.uk/Article.aspx?id=200610021552478169J However, the current share price is 21% higher than the pre-Safe Port price. This would represent a massive increase in sales and profits of the remaining businesses if the rating pre-Safe Port was correct. What do the directors make of all of this? This one is pretty clear! Immediately post the issue of the final results for last year (which were good as largely unaffected by Safe Port). 18 April David Bailey sold 100k at 247p 18 April Andrew Dark sold 10k at 247p 19 April Gavin Breeze sold 1.5m at 242p No acquisitions other than low priced option exercising. No substantial sales until shortly after AGM statement at the end of June which said: "The Group has seen good growth in both revenue and transaction volumes so far this year. Revenues lost from the fallout in the US are continuing to be replaced as our customers expand their operations in other countries." http://www.investegate.co.uk/Article.aspx?id=200706271427001402Z 6 July Ashley Head sold 1.2m at 240p. A strategically important sale as Ashley Head was the 50% shareholder, but by selling these shares he now holds less than 50%. The AGM statement is no doubt accurate, but possible paints a misleading picture as the acquired business was only included for a small part of the comparative period. This good growth is now being spread across twice as many shares (just how good is that growth?). The reference to continuing to replace also implies they may not be fully replaced yet! Next news is interims on 25 September. Turnover growth and profit growth should be superficially attractive as the acquisition wasn't in the comparatives (other than for a very short period). However, the massive share issue will hold up earnings progress. The main effect of Safe Port will be felt in H2 this year as the business performed spectacularly in H2 largely due to strength in US gaming. As indicated above the growth required to replace this business is substantial. A business that was worth £2.20 per share before losing 40-45% of profits less than 1 year ago is now worth £2.655 per share. The directors have made bullish comments interspersed with subtle references to the impact of the lost business whilst raising millions in share sales. To me the share price looks set to disappoint when reality start to kick in. Also the share price has held up well within recent turbulence so a very nice entry point for anyone wanting to short. DATA is a solid business with good prospects, however, IMO there is a need for the share price to adjust to reflect the reality of the impact of Safe Port.

scburbs: Taken advantage of the current strength to increase my short position. With 30-40% of the business having gone down the pan in the US and the share price at or around all time highs it is an accident waiting to happen.

scburbs: Rigrat, There was a reason the share price crashed last year (I don't mean crash bankrupt, I mean crash substantial fall). DATA has yet to report any results relating to periods after the US gaming law change. At the time, Investec estimated that US gaming accounted for 30% sales and 40-45% of profits. You need rather more than sound management for the business to be worth more than before the US law change. Contract news has been positive, but I think the full negative from the lost business is not currently reflected in the share price.

frontiercapital: Datacash Stmnt re Share Price Movement RNS Number:8169J Datacash Group PLC 02 October 2006 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 02 October 2006 DataCash Group PLC US Congress passes Safe Port Act The Board of DataCash Group has noted the share price reaction to the passing by Congress of the Safe Port Act and makes the following comments: The Group currently receives approximately 30% of its revenues from US originated payments down from 45% in December 2005. For the avoidance of doubt, the Group does not and has not supported sports book betting transactions originating in the US. The Group strategy has been to reduce the dependence on US gaming and further evidence of this trend can be shown by the growth rates of the non-US gaming business as a percentage of DataCash's total growth pro rata over the past 12 months, currently running at 74% compared to the US gaming growth rate of approximately 26%. DataCash Group has a wide sector diversification in its business, for example in retail, travel and telecommunications and this is expected to continue to show good growth, and is already benefiting from the growing requirement for integrated international payment processing and comprehensive risk management services provided by the DataCash Group. It is impossible to quantify the impact of the Bill at this stage, but the company also believes that the effect may be to generate new and enhanced opportunities to the Group for its non-US payments processing and risk management activities as gaming operators diversify into other geographic and business areas.
