|No it won't - game over at 30p. A textbook short from the day it was floated.
The acquiror Vantis has always appeared to me to be better run.|
|Will this one come back up to the 90 p days of early 2003? methinks not|
|AGM statement. Still doesn't add up.|
|Having closed my short some months ago I have no current position in this stock. However I would like to draw attention to the dire results issued today which fully vindicate the bear stance adopted by myself 18 months ago at the top of this thread (when the Numerica share price was 103p).
My current shorts are Patientline, Trafficmaster, Manganese Bronze & Millfield.|
|Possibly management buyout at around 65p.|
|many buys or sells gone thru today, any idea on cassh position.|
Now the shares are at your 30p target aren't you a buyer. I think they'll go up from here.
|I rest my case m'lud - see posts 1,2 4 and 5|
|Seems to have settled down, am surprised has not fallen further, but with the quarterly expiry coming up I closed last week.|

|Took a nasty hit myself - at 47 and 48p . Still holding a few though. Not worth selling down here
Think they will come back over time but do not expect any quick bounces. Markets and business is improving though so they should be doing much better than a few months back at profit warning time.
Better places to park your money and wait than here I guess if you are tight for cash . Happy to hold what i got left though|
|i noticed this one today had fallen now at 42--45p on reading the above posts it would seem to have a lot further to fall, only 3 trades all day 2 of them buys, hard one to call this, not sure its worth a punt, i would on the face of it go long, expext Charlie on this boared would think other wise, your thoughts most welcome.|
|decided it was best to take a loss @48p, that will teach me to buy shares I know nothing about, just because there seemed a quick profit !! I wonder what will happen with TBI ?|
|All offer talks terminated.
BDO said no. Unidentified other party said no.
Very weak position.
Price was 36.5p before offer talks, 20p would be fair now?|
|I know this is the wrong website but if anyone is interested in why themutual.net (TMN) is going up, this is why:
Current profit 0.56 million
Durlacher Ltd predict 1.00 million for 2004
Bell Lawrie White & Co predict 1.5 million for 2004
Interims about the 18th Nov.
Check it out, double you money without risk.|
|Well - just caught up with this thread. Didn't realise they'd issued a profits warning but I'm not surprised - see thread no 1 and earlier messages.
Let them fall a bit more then you might get a TENON bounce back! DYOR|
|charlie - your track record keeps getting better and better. PLayed.|
Dead right.The assets are the people.Morale has gone and so will they.
It seems worse than i thought.Back to my original bottom of 35 pence.|
|I don't have a set buying level. I doubt they'll go bust, but I do think the warning is suggestive of further warnings to come. In particular the following over-complicated passage.....
"....Given that we will make a loss for the first half, our full year profit before exceptional items, redundancy costs, goodwill amortisation and tax is likely to be lower than last year, but it is still relatively early to predict the full year outcome, especially in light of the cost reduction and revenue enhancement initiatives to be implemented."
...reads to me as "it's probably going to be bad, but we won't say how bad yet, something might turn up."
Also note the passage
"Going forward we are currently examining how we can make directors'
remuneration more flexible and more closely aligned to Group performance."
...? they need to cut pay (again) to make it financially viable but what will that do to morale and retention? This is a business where all the assets can walk.|
Highly paid IFA in my area has just been dispensed with.Just a part timer left now.All very well getting rid of staff,but when will companies learn that getting rid of staff on the sales side is only a short term saving.Not much hope for the PA now or the office manager after that,or the company after that either.|
|Most impressive, Charlie.
Is there any price where you would "buy" (or stop shorting) NUG, or do you think the slide to zero is inevitable?|
|LO - answer on Helphire thread. (It's not really new so I don't think it will actually worry you very much!)|
Yes NUG have a team of IFAs based around the country,(salary plus bonus for reaching targets) selling to joe public.I dealt with them connected with my buy to let property business).|
Pensions, remortgages - are you sure you're on the right board - are you talking about Millfield? I don't own NUG but know plenty of people who do.
Well done - good call. Why would you short Helphire? Its a much better business than NUG or MIL.
