|Trotters Trading has been proved wrong, wrong and wrong again. He has zero credibility. His forecasts of share price performance have been woeful.
ALL IMO. DYOR.
|QP just peddles fear and half truths, ignore him, we will see who's view was right before the year is out|
|wisecat, interesting point about the approaching end of tax year. Hopefully this time next week we can start thinking about the fundamentals again. Thought that Smiths Industries' comments about their AirPort security scanner división the other day were very relevant.|
|quepassa, please stick to facts ....what evidence do you have that micro cap funds are AWASH with cash? Herald for example is a closed end fund so has no inflows, Miton micro cap has 8.5% which is typical working liquidity...|
|QuePassa I take it you don't own stock
Mesquida you are probably right but a little birdy tells me the market have had a buyer and they the MM's with the tax year-end fast approaching are happy to play around with the price while shaking the tree. While market conditions remain quiet they are happy to short stocks and cover later. This will change with the new tax year, I hope. In the longer term none of this matters on the way to a pound|
|Good to see the Director share purchase, but it still looks as if somebody is feeding the stock out.|
|Be careful with relying on the institutional buying as an indicator in this sector..
The small handful of institutional funds involved in the small/micro cap sector have got a major problem. They are generally AWASH at the moment with cash due to investor demand and inflows and have a real problem in spending/investing that money.
This market sector is so illiquid and narrow that even small purchases move the price dramatically or you can't get a quote.
Every small ticket punter trying to buy £5k of small cap shares will have had that exact experience. Imagine what it's like if you are an institution.
This problem is magnified enormously for institutions - they just cannot really buy micro-caps in the open market and generally need or rely on blocks being put on the market or FUND-RAISINGS like now which gives them the opportunity to place money into the market in bigger size.
In my opinion, institutional micro-cap buying is not a reliable indicator and frequently points more to a convenient method for institutions to spend excess liquidity which otherwise is really hard for them to place in this very illiquid micro-cap sector.
That's why the CEO NOT supporting the fund-raising was more telling for me in my opinion than the institutions buying into the fund-raising.
And never forget! When the institutions buy, it is NOT their own money which they are risking.
ALL IMO. DYOR.
|Oh well QuePassa, whatever you say.
The Chief Operating Officer of Kromek thinks differently however and purchased 80,000 shares at 29.35p, he must know a little more than you at this stage of the game.
Good luck with your investments.|
|interesting thoughts on share price.good point on the flotation price. KMK has disappointed in the past and has alot to prove. There was great support from institutions at 20p fundraiser. This has added further dilution. The proof in the pudding is continued chunky contracts. They have started the newsflow, if they continue then market cap could rise significantly from 68 million. profits are the key|
no time warp here. just pure here-and-now staring cold reality in the face. Try it. It would be a new experience for you.
but you are in some sort of never-never fantasy-land.
at what price did they float? Around 50p wasn't it and they are still some 50% down on flotation price. Great going after so many years and several visits back to the equity trough. very convincing.
this is a real woofer in my opinion.
ALL IMO. DYOR.
|This is 2017, just in case you are stuck in a time warp ... and new contracts have been confirmed in 2017, 10 year ones too ...
ISA allowances could see big inflows here in April btw|
|different views make the market.
just because Questor gives a positive write-up it most certainly does not mean they are right.
i have little confidence in this company and its track-record of nasty surprises to the downside cannot be ignored.
Anyone remember the 4/4/14 $159m Chinese contract??
ALL IMO. DYOR.
|QuePassa, things move on and this company certainly has, the ride is just starting IMO and therefore you need to see it for what it is NOW, with the new contracts and the huge support from Institutional Investors and respected stock pickers during the last fundraising, who very much believe in the story, if you read the recent Questor article I posted above.|
|Trotters Trading. when price was 40p, repeatedly said it could only go up...
price now 27p.
Zero credibility. just ramping nonsense from TT.
he's been wrong, wrong and wrong again.
ALL IMO. DYOR.
|QP I seem to remember fund raising was at 20p so it has risen since then.|
|What's Up QuePassa? Chill man and press the buy button, you'll find it much more enjoyable to get in on the ride to £1+ rather than fighting it for a lower entry.|
|More sour grapes from QP.. you're losing what little credibility you had mate, give it a rest. Do you think you know more than high calibre fund managers from Miton, Herald and Kilik who all invested heavily during the £20m fund raise?Who looks at the name in Airport scanners? You wouldn't know if you passed through one using KMK's technology or not! Seriously you're going to have to do better than that! Let's see you rehash your standard mantra about the £156m China deal next. Which is still very much active btw, in fact the product is ready to be shipped to the customer. The company stated they expect the full value of the deal to be realised.. and more before the end of he term|
|Recent share price performance post fund-raising.
34p down to 27p.
That's telling you something.
Has anyone ever seen a Kromek scanner at an airport if their apparently wonderful technology is such a world-beater?
ALL IMO. DYOR.
|Nice director buy in open market.. bit of a rarity these days. Bodes well|
|Director purchase, not huge but £23K worth so more than a poke in the eye. Shows a bit of confidence in future although now that probably means no contract news for at least a month due to director purchase rules.|
|The above was before the latest contracts were announced.
Here's an interview with the CEO from January 2017:
It's on a site that is not allowed here for some reason but something with this in it '.... investors'|
|My only concern with Kromek is its Market Cap which is just shy of £70m. I think this is still too high based on Kromek's £8m turnover and no profits. Therefore either the share price has to fall further to make the Market Cap more realistic or significant contracts have to be won. However, I like the space this business operates in. I like the potential growth opportunities in this space. It has recently raised capital and is well funded but I am looking for the big contract win here to justify the current market cap.|
|This could double and more instantly with any whiff of a takeover, if you look at the IIs that are in this you will realise that the story here is quite uniquely placed, with lots of upside to come this year. Weak hands being flushed before the next big leg up IMO
