longwell: rns suggests that we may get an acquisition or share price moving news before November. seems no reason for the continual drop apart from share over hang from recent large selling. I am still purchasing and have a sizeable holding now. no special dividend suggested to me acquisition was likely , hope to be proved right. tech and consolidation sectors are the place to pick up the decent returns.
weemonkey: Same story as last year regarding Share price. Shares went down last year after decent results then recovered. I expect the same thing to happen this year. But PTEC is different beast now. Impressive forward visibility, recent acquistions (BGT esp), movement into B2B financials and doubling in value of Plus500 holding were not in the mix last year.
longwell: no large acquisitions bodes well for special dividend again, would help push share price well through 10..00 with a 50p special.
longwell: still an effect on share price from off loading of a large % of shares. I think after results if forward looking statement is positive playtech will start to unlock its potential.
undervaluedassets: hxxps:// And so say all of us..
nod: ssw, the Plus share price has doubled since PTEC's failed offer at 400p for the whole of Plus. But what did Brighttech actually pay for its shares? I've not found that info yet, but I would guess it was a lot less than 400p per share.Whatever they paid, PTEC is currently sitting on a very nice paper profit today. However, PLUS has a habit of getting into regulatory trouble and the share price crashes.I'm certain the regulators keep a very close eye on PLUS.
nod: Brokers never or seldom give a date with their target price. That would make them wrong most of the time.The forecast of 1500 by year end is mine and not MS. I am anticipating an autumn boom in stock markets. PTEC was already undervalued and is now further depressed by the Sagi sale. I'm anticipating this overhang will be cleared by October.Sagi now has only 6.3% of PTEC. This situation will draw in more institutional investors who were previously wary of the Sagi influence. The PTEC ongoing growth story is formidable and shows no sign of slowing. This premier growth is not reflected in the market valuation / share price.
longwell: if institutions snapped up shares around 9.38 at a discount to market price, its with the intention of getting a good return relatively quickly to agree such large purchases. trading update will no doubt boost share price. looks like its a floor not ceiling or a lot of wealthy , professionals have been conned which I highly doubt considering owners many interests in companies that will rely on his honesty and relationships with institutions to grow.
nod: Sagi is to sell 10% of the company leaving him with a 23.6% holding. Last time he sold it depressed the share price for some considerable time. In the long run I think it's good for PTEC but it may be a big overhang for six months.
nod: Here's the explanation given by PTEC on the use of Euros as the 'home' currency and FX risk.Foreign currency The financial information of the gaming division, which includes the Company and some of its subsidiaries is prepared in euros (the functional currency), which is the currency that best reflects the economic substance of the underlying events and circumstances relevant to the gaming division. Transactions and balances in foreign currencies are converted into euros in accordance with the principles set forth by International Accounting Standard (IAS) 21 ("The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates"). Accordingly, transactions and balances have been converted into the presentation currency of euros as follows: ? Monetary assets and liabilities – at the rate of exchange applicable at the balance sheet date; ? Income and expense items – at exchange rates applicable as of the date of recognition of those items. Non-monetary items are converted at the rate of exchange used to convert the related balance sheet items i.e. at the time of the transaction. Exchange gains and losses from the aforementioned conversion are recognised in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income. The financial information of the financial division is prepared in US Dollars (the functional currency), which is the currency that best reflects the economic substance of the underlying events and circumstances relevant to the financial division. The transactions and balances are converted into the presentation currency of euros as follows: ? Assets and liabilities – at the rate of exchange applicable at the balance sheet date; ? Income and expense items – at average exchange rates applicable at the period of recognition of those items; ? Equity- at historic rate. Exchange gains and losses from the aforementioned conversion are recognised in the foreign exchange reserve. C. Currency risk Currency risk is the risk that the value of financial instruments will fluctuate due to changes in foreign exchange rates. Foreign exchange risk arises because the Group has operations located in various parts of the world. However, the functional currency of those operations is the same as the Group's primary functional currency (Euro) and the Group is not substantially exposed to fluctuations in exchange rates in respect of assets held overseasForeign exchange risk also arises when Group operations are entered into, and when the Group holds cash balances, in currencies denominated in a currency other than the functional currency. The Group's policy is not to enter into any currency hedging transactions. D. Equity price risk The Group's balance sheet is exposed to market risk by way of holding some investments in other companies on a short term basis (Note 14). Variations in market value over the life of these investments have or will have an impact on the balance sheet and the income statement. The directors believe that the exposure to market price risk is acceptable in the Group's circumstances. The Group's balance sheet at 31 December 2015 includes available-for-sale investments with a value of €237.1 million (2014: €24.2 million) which are subject to fluctuations in the underlying share price. A change of 1% in shares price will have an impact of €23.7 million on the consolidated statement of comprehensive income and the fair value of the available for sale investments will change by the same amount. (I don't understand how a 1% change in share price can have a 10% impact)
