|csilondon: The share price behaviour associated with a sample of trading suspensions on the London Stock Exchange have been analysed. Trading suspensions are found to be prevalent, and last for a relatively long time period. The results indicate that suspensions on the London Stock Exchange are, on average, preceded by a substantial increase in share price, thus reflecting anticipatory price-behaviour. The presence of significant positive abnormal return following trading suspensions is also detected. This suggests that either the complete impact of information release takes place gradually, or not all relevant information is disclosed during the suspension period.

It's good to see a PLW holder with a sense of humour. That makes two now, you and Foo.
Ofcourse, what you say is a load of rubbish and could apply to any share price. No company floats of the market and then their shareprice goes up in a straight line... companies shares fall and bargain buying prices are presented, as with the case of LNG.
The difference with LNG and PLW is that LNG's shareprice is backed with fundamentals. LNG are forecast to make £2m net profit this year, given a 15p share price that puts them on a P/E of approx. 9 for this year... which is very low for the sector, any sector.
PLWs shareprice is backed with no fundamentals. Foo hasn't even given a trading update for last year yet... and where are the broker forecasts for this year? That's right, there are none, because all the brokers know that this is never going to make money... so what's the point analysing the company.
Anyway, lets leave this BB to PLW talk... i'd be happy for you to post your LNG concerns on the LNG board. It's only right.|
I'm not going anywhere. PLW is 'terminally ill' through very bad mismanagement... the same management that awards its self 100k+ a year. A lot of you bitter PLW holders say you have written off your investment here, so why don't you move on... why still post here. It makes more sense for me to stay here and warn people of investing in PLW, i am trying to save people from the same fate as you and the same fate i have had when investing in small mismanaged companies in the past.
Saying PLW was a bad investment at 15p a share was very obvious. It takes more skill and knowledge to say it's a bad investment at 3p... and at 0.5p... which i have been doing... as people psychologically see these small prices as 'bargains' and 'cannot go much lower'.
I have no interest to see PLW's shareprice go up or down. So am just offering an impartial opinion. Which i am entitled too. I am just saying what i see, and it's all bad.
The sad truth is, you want me to disappear in the hope people will buy into PLW on 'spikes' not knowing the full danger. They will then drive up the share price so you can exit at a smaller loss. Now that is sad, selfish and you should be very ashamed of yourselves.|
|cervelo: Great Shaun.....do you have a target for the PLW share price as well??? B-)|

its still my opinion that... had either pkr or plw have done well.. it would've helped the other one, by proving that the market wants this sortof 'high production values' 3d version of online poker.
bear in mind that there's over 500 online poker rooms out there. and almost all of them look and feel exactly the same (flat, dull, 2d). so it seems logical to assume that a poker site that tries something thats clearly different than the pack, should carve out a niche for themselves and attract a segment of the market. just how big that segment is, depends on other factors. thats irrepective of whether the site offers a better experience or not. but if you combine the theory that the higher production value sites, that have higher realism and more 'stuff going on' will be stickier, and thus have more effective marketing efforts... should give an indication of likely outcome.
i think that the reason that plw failed is largely down to poor marketing. and while i also think that plw's marketing wasnt good enough - the biggest problem with it was that there wasnt enough of it - and that, is largely dependent on lack of financial resources. if plw had had the £10m cash that pkr got - or even £5m, ive no doubt that plw would've been doing as well, if not better than pkr in the 6 month timeframe - although pkr's business model should've always allowed it to steam ahead in the long-run due to scaling to lower overheads and more control over its destiny (no third party networking operator to share revenue with, nor payments processing nor customer service etc). but the lack of funds to spend on marketing was, imho, the main reason for plw's lack of acquiring 'enough' customers. its that simple. in the 1st 6 month's of operations... pkr's liquidity had, as predicted, a negative effect on its ability to recruit new players.. whereas plw had less such liquidity problems (operating on someone else's 'already established' network).
i know nothing and am not an insider in any way. but purely as an educated outsider's point of view, i would predict plw's most likely direction now that the 'direct marketing' approach hasnt proved as successul as intended, would be towards licensing the technology, or perhaps even selling the tech or the company. perhaps to one of its existing partners... partouche... microgaming.. spin palace.. or perhaps one of their partners.. ladbrokes etc.. Had PKR not been proving that 3d poker is the way forward.. and "flying the flag", as it were... plw would have a MUCH harder time proving to a potential acquiror, that its product was in demand by the market. But the mere fact that PKR is eating the lunch of several other online poker sites... proves that 'theres something there' worth having. and plw can definitely trade off of pkr's success to help it show value to its assets as a comparable, etc.
my (indirect) shareholding in plw cost a few tens of thousands to acquire.. and is sitting at about 5%. to me, thats peanuts. i personally invested millions in pkr, and i sometimes make punts of similar or larger than the plw punt when i want to test out my guess on which way a market is going to go. i cant claim to be a whiz at this, and sometimes ive lost spectacularly, but i also have done well on occasion as well.. but i still feel that plw is attractively valued right now, and as a value investor who knows the market, to me.. the 5% doesnt feel like a substantial shareholding, based on the company's current low share price.
Foo and i know each other well. We even find it amusingly awkward how cheap it was for me to acquire so many shares. he knows im not about to acquire the company, nor do anything to hurt it. if anything, and as mentioned earlier, i have given the company some breathing space by soaking up the 'sells' at this price and keeping it from sinking any further at a time. lets face it, if the company is trying to find a partner, or acquiror, or do an asset sale.. it is going to be beneficial if the share price is as les "in the toilet" as possible and not completely submerged.
|darcon: Jez, have you considered doing a reverse takeover of PLW (ie, combine PKR and PLW businesses under one listing through a share for share exchange)? With the PLW share price in the doldrums you would undoubtedly be able to extract a good price for adding PKR to the mix, and it could make sense strategically for PKR to knock out PLW as a competitor.|
|m0270h00: Hi all,
Upon reading the following link regarding partygaming I get the feeling that the sector, maybe, just maybe starting a little recovery.
I appreciate and accept that a few have expressed that PLW should wait before publishing figures until there's a positive figure of player numbera to announcement.
However I think the PLW share price is being held back by lack of news. If Partygaming do publish a good annual trading report on the 1st March, then maybe it would be good idea for PLW to join in and give a 6 month product update incorporating player number and some of the success stories of winners of tournaments (that fish guy)
This may give the company the little boost it needs to attract more long term investors.
Have a great weekend
|screwem: Given the arrest of SBT chairman I fear another downturn in the PLW share price!|
