|the stigologist: PTO A 2015 RECOVERY STOCK : ? Ј1.38P. - PTO
Tadtech - 28 Dec 2014 - 17:59:48 - 21 of 1199
As I pointed out on the other thread I recently had some communication with the company, the tone of the reply was pretty positive. I do believe this year will belong to PTO.
The share price can move very quickly
The recent statement by Micheal Cairns was as upbeat as one could get :-
"Across the organisation we've deepened our relationships with third party integrators, which has already started to de-risk our business, improve margins and provide opportunities in new geographies and markets; we have signed major new contracts, implemented new systems with notable success and we have a healthy line-up of sales in the pipeline in 2015. We've also redesigned and relaunched some of our more established products and appointed some extremely capable people to help drive the business forward.
"Now optimised for growth and scalability, Publishing Technology is in the best position to capitalise on the substantial product investment to take full advantage of the latent potential in the market and I'm excited to lead the business into 2015."|
|ten bag man: THAT'S a ten bagger in under a year.!!!
TEN BAG MAN 19 Sep'14 - 18:22.
TERN started the week of 15th SEP 2014 with a valuation of just £180,000
Also known as market cap it is all the shares in issue times the share price.
The same week TERN bought a company with world beating software.
I hope to show investors that one way to make super profits from the stock market is to invest in situations just like this.|

So an 'investor' potentially wants to take a stake at a SIGNIFICANT PREMIUM to the current market price.
May I remind readers that PTO's share price averaged over £3 for most of the last 18 months and hit £6+ at one time.
Broker target must bear some resemblance to what this 'investor' could acquire stock at.
These shares will be trading above £2.50 very shortly IMO.|
|brewsters_millions: ok im cool.
I will be back to cash my chips in at around 75p on PTO
Regarding MAC. Yes, it is only money 20k...but i worked my blood sweat and guts for it.
What peeves me off big time is that i actually fell for Tara's ramping and lies.
I woke up one morning and noticed MAC down over 50% and my heart sunk, just couldnt believe it :( as i had only bought into it a month ago
MAC crashed pretty severe that day due to RARA who was bailing / selling her holding on the sly, TARA needed the money to plough into PTO that day as PTO was down that day presenting a perfect opportunity to buy more PTO stock.
MAC was a tightly held share. As Tara sold out MAC share price took a crash -50+ perecent. Then for the next few days it went down even further, as TARA was still bailing (any sizeable sells were wacking the share price down in MAC)
Then guess what, TARA disappears for a good 4 months and then hey presto it's back gain with it's multiple user id's
And the moral of the story is: I was one of the mugs who followed Ramping TARA as i bought into her brain washing tripe only to be left nursing some wounds which still have not healed.
No offence to others on this thread as this is not the way i would like to behave but what kind of people live on this earth, what drives them to lie and deceive folk to line up their own greasy pockets. That really sucks man....i feel had! if you know what i mean. The trigger was TARA te decision was mine fair enough....But fast forward in the future and TARA is up to the same agenda via a different alias and the access to multiple user handles to create BB interest on stocks that he has already taken a postion in.
creating 50 users handles on ADVFN is a sinch.
Anyway, good luck to you all: long short or fat.|
|longshanks: It really depends upon the investor and what they are after.PTO need cash to keep their bellies filled so their motivation is obvious.The likely investor is a partner/customer who wants to secure monopoly supply for their business area. It is unlikely they are concerned with usage outside their business area - and equally can see little point in running a business that is currently a supplier but not part of their own core business.IMO - there will be no bid otherwise we would have been told that; instead we were told they are issuing new shares at a premium to the current market price. That alone doesn't mean the share price will appreciate (take a look at IMM which agreed in January to issue shares at 191% premium to Simbec-Orion). Over the long term though, value should come out.|
|madigansar: TBM I think you are spot on. Can't wait to find out who it is, but yep a big name will definitely spark a lot of interest and with such a small free float there is only one way the share price is headed. PTO is definitely a hold for 2 years for me or until we get to a much higher share price, whatever happens first. It will be nice to see PTO's fortunes turnaround and this I feel will happen in a big way. Time to buy is NOW if you haven't already....|
|tadtech: The de-rampers here have no understanding of this company and how it works.
The recent 'losses' were mainly as a result of deferred revenues that did not hit FY 2014. This revenue will come in 2015. If the 2014 'loss' was so serious do you think the Director loans would have taken place this year?
This company has 60% of re-curing (annual) fixed revenue. That equates to £10m. If they make just £1m on that the share price would be circa £3.50
No wonder an 'investor' wants to buy in at a significant premium. My guess is this premium could be as high as double the current share price.
It is staggering that retail investors are ignoring this company but are happy to buy into speculative punts on a whim.
PTO made a lot of people a great deal of money in 2013, this could easily happen again this year.
I had some communication with the CFO a few weeks ago and he seemed pretty upbeat.
The current broker target price of £4 seems pretty attainable IMO. The shares move very quickly.
|tadtech: Lovely quiet bulletin board but I believe the shares will be a top performer in 2015.
Had some communication with the company last week to address some issues I had, fairly positive reply without giving too much away.
The recent director loans are seasonal, easier to set up and will be re-payed in early 2015 when annual renewal monies (one from a major installation) arrive from ongoing projects.
Reminded that the loans show the directors commitment to the business.
Next update, the word 'positives' was used.
Reminded that 60% of revenues are recurring (about £10m)
Implied Directors fully committed to restore shareholder value into 2015 and beyond.
It should be remembered that PTO are working with some world class publishers, a takeover offer cannot be ruled out.
The share price is rock bottom, market cap only £11.7m, at its height the company was valued at £50m+
Turnover circa £15m moving into £2015, if PTO make £1m-£1.25m from that the share price would warrant a target of £3+
Broker has price target of £4
In my view significantly undervalued, the shares move very quickly!
|madigansar: "You're ignoring one very important point. PTO is a Ferrari without fuel.
It's all very well designing new systems and seeing them working IN YOUR OWN TEST ENVIRONMENT; it's quite another matter migrating a client's current production data into that system.
That's why the share price is where it is today, because management aren't IT people, and their own IT people should have seen this coming YEARS AGO !!
I'd be very surprised if heads haven't rolled at PTO HQ !"
Michael, I think that’s a bit of an unfair comparison. The share price is where it is due to the profit warnings, but yes on the back of increased IT spend etc. They recruited a top level IT head recently so the ship should be on course now. PTO might have got caught on the hop with take up for their new products accelerating at a faster pace than they expected, but that’s a nice position to be in – more business than you can handle and so much business you have to work with third parties to facilitate it. Like we know and has been pointed out – this has already and will open doors that were closed. I would be worried if they didn’t have the work coming in, but they do and a lot of it.
Their systems are passed the testing stage are they not – products have been rolled out and contracts been signed with new sign ups yet to come. There are successful collaborations within software companies all the time – am sure they have it sussed which partners to work with and know what they are doing and who are trustworthy to deliver what is required and unless you are inside the company you aren’t in a position to comment as you don’t know the details – sure it might be tricky but these guys are working on code with the Chinese, doesn’t get much trickier than that I imagine. I think they have all banged their heads together and come up with a solution. The Ferrari will roar Michael with a full tank of fuel. That’s my take – you are all of course entitled to your own opinions apart from Stig who never has anything worthwhile to add as he knows nothing about PTO other than share price fluctuations.|
|tara7: Our new CEO has been the head of PTO'S online division for the last 10 months.
In the report and accounts we read the companies plan to form a publishing platform to take on Amazon.
This would be the publishers selling direct to their end users (the public).
PTO has that platform right now (Pub2Web).
Looks like it could be our new CEO'S baby.
I have been saying for years Amazon does not own the content and as soon as the publishers get their act up to speed they can cut Amazon out of the picture.
PTO share price could go 10 to 50 fold if all the big publishers got signed up to the platform.
The publishers Hate the likes of Amazon as all it does for them is slash margins and takes away what would be heaps of extra profit.
Governments around the world are also crying out for someone to take AMAZON on.
Tiny PTO could do just that.|
