|Is there a pre close trading statement due|
|A seller around of late which hasn't helped.......|
|General economic conditions are putting a break on here. We have a problem getting and staying above 310p., but when that level forms a support, and given business flows nicely, as it should in the area Iomart are in, then we should be able to look forward to a longer term growth trend. The dividend is low but well covered, suggesting the company is holding cash for growth, so barring unforeseens, I'm happy to keep holding and on a drop to 275p (which I do not actually see, but it may happen if a larger holder sells a chunk), I'd top-up.|
|That rec helped then ............doh|

Solid H1 from iomart
H1 results from iomart are solid with the company turning in organic growth in the 8-9% range. Overall growth (i.e. including acquisitions) was 16% to £42m. Indeed, the purchases continued in the period with the acquisition of Cristie Data Ltd, a Stroud based data storage, backup and virtualisation solutions provider.
Adjusted EBITDA margin was squeezed slightly from 42.6% to 41.8%, partly due to the charges being levied by the cloud providers with which it partners.
The top line growth in the cloud business is holding very steady at around the 10% mark (to £35m). Interestingly, we observe that the company is shifting from its ‘natural habitat’ in hosting towards the types of services that ready organisations for a shift to the cloud - and then migrate the applications. The SystemsUp acquisition is of course additional evidence of this. It’s an important move as it opens up potential for larger hosting contracts. Of course, many other providers are also chasing the services opportunities associated with cloud migration so creating differentiation is challenging. Often it comes down to skills, experience and reference cases, and how those can be applied to strong customer relationships.
We don’t expect to see any surprises in H2 in terms of performance, but could well see more cloud consulting revenue as that part of the business builds.|
|Aye, well on track.....hopefully onwards and upwards......|
|sp should get a boost this morning|
|Very good results as expected.Look well on track to meet full year eps forecast of 18p.
Its a shame their current trading statement is so woolly!|
|looks like these are being picked up ahead of the results due next week. Would be good to carry some momentum into the 310p area to see if we can break out of the range.|
|Swamp us I would say.|
|This is just one example of an extract of a report having used Google News for
Microsoft Gains From Its Cloud Strategy. Microsoft has reported adjusted first-quarter earnings per share of $0.76 on revenue of $22.33 billion, which is ahead of the consensus estimates. The intelligent cloud segment stole the limelight, as it brought in $6.38 billion in revenue, which was much better than what analysts were expecting. The company said that the sales for its “intelligent cloud” business will be between $6.55 billion and $6.75 billion in the current quarter.
And this is from the Iomart USA web site:
We’ve partnered with industry leaders to ensure our cloud services are the best in the business – delivering complete peace of mind.
So does any one know for sure if this is a good read-across for Iomart or are the likes
of MSFT going to swamp us?|
|Got a few at 260p today.|
|The breakout could be significant given the sideways trade for 3 years. Volume pitiful of late so news flow or attention required before we break the 313.50 resistance|
|BritishBulls.com Says today Signal Update Our system's recommendation today is to BUY. The pattern finally received a confirmation because the prices crossed above the confirmation level which was at 298.00, and our valid average buying price stands now at 298.50. The previous SELL signal was issued on 15/08/2016, 17 days ago, when the stock price was 305.38. Since then IOM.L has fallen by -2.25%.Market Outlook Let's jump on our white horses and go for a bullish ride. The bullish pattern that was previously identified is finally confirmed and a BUY signal is generated. Most probably, it is the right time to participate in bullish fervor. The market is telling you about a new profit. Do not miss this bullish opportunity|
|No went down after the rejected bid then later downline can't remember how many months but went up to 315p. Was around October last year maybe|
I have done well out of these but that price must have been around the time of the rejected bid approach.|
|ATH no not until exceeds 315p reached in 2013. ATH=All Time High. 350p possible.|
|A three bagger for me now, so quite happy.Expecting further moves up so not inclined to take profit yet.|
