|On the theme 'every little helps' STL should benefit from the fact that the majority (if not all) its revenue is priced in dollars.|
|Well lets hope we are all right. Such is his enthusiasm I have pushed the boat out on this. Pay day a week on Monday!|
|I am totally and utterly happy to give Mud the benefit of the doubt but why he has made such claims is beyond me.
Well, I am more than happy to say that my money, and a lot of it mind, is certainly on Stilo too. Absolutely! Categorically 100%!|
|Well I have known Mud for over 50 years. He is the straightest person I have ever met. Mud would never ever put anybody 'away'. He researches things in great detail. He puts his money where is mouth is. His background is banking,so he knows the financial game inside out. His track record,and lifestyle is the envy of people who know him.
He gets it right most times,with a great knack of spotting a bargain. A good recent example he told me last Aug. that Jim Crowley was overpriced at 50 and 33-1 to win the Flat Jockeys Championship. It ends on Sat. Jim Crowley has a lead of 18 winners. In other words he has won it. Sad to say I just could not see it. Well I did when he was 7-1.
Regarding Stilo he is very bullish. This is a major 'punt' for him. As I said earlier his money is where is mouth is.|
|The information I have on Stilo, selfishly and understandably, is for myself that I was able to get directly. It is personal private information that just cannot be accessed on the web. Information that totally and utterly opened my eyes to what Stilo will achieve.
As I am in possession of such information is exactly and precisely the reason why I have been able to say absolutely accurately and categorically precisely that the growth is going to come but on a conservative basis.
This is single reason as to why I have always had a bash at Mud and totally criticised him when he has made certain statements that I have always known to have been untrue and way, way, way, way, way, way off the mark.
Folks, if I reveal this at the wrong time, not until it is actually reflective in the Stilo share price, be it in a years time or 5 or 10 years time, only when it is reflective in Stilo's share price, then I would be doing myself a huge disservice and it would be a complete betrayal to the originator of that information. Not to mention that from my own individual perspective I would be shooting myself in the foot completely as it would totally put me at a disadvantage. I would be shooting myself in the foot completely.|
|SL - I look forward to meeting you in due course. ATB.|
|Not sure if this is old News.
|Where did you get that information , and could it be insider?
Can it be obtained through an internet search?|
|SL - You didn't really answer the question I asked, but your posts are always amusing and I wasn't being personal, I just wanted you to explain what you thought you know/knew?:-
"believe me I know something about Stilo International that I will only reveal once the very, very successful story comes to an end"
Never mind, we're both optimistic holders.
Companies dictate their own fortunes, and hopefully Stilo's long term story will turn out to be a good one.
|Mouse a few days ago you said that I was getting a little bit personal and we should keep posts for the Stilo thread. So "what happened....or do old habits die hard?"
I certainly have not changed my stance on Stilo "once again" like you have stated. I am very positive on this share and I certainly stand by my estimations that the growth is going to be conservative and progressive. In due course, long term, the share price should hit the highs that we are all hoping and expecting.
Anyway, what about those huge big professional institutions that one day say "buy! buy! buy! and then the next say sell! sell! sell!"
Do I really care about what others think about my credibility? Am I really going to lose sleep over that? Do I really care how much "salt is being used? Do I really want to win a credibility contest? Not really!!
Lets face it, investors always want to hear the positives and nothing to do with negatives. Investors in Stilo want to hear something completely different and something a lot more substantial. I have said on numerous occasions what my concerns are with Migrate, and let's not forget that even management pointed these out in the 6 month end results. The hope is that these concerns will be allayed with additional pending revenues. That does not mean my stance has changed.
If anybody wants to have false expectations about Stilo and get told that their products have been signed, sealed and delivered then they will have to wait until Mub comes back. At the moment his enjoying reading these threads.
As we all know it has always been 2 feet forward, one foot back with Stilo for numerous years but the expectations have now changed. How quick those expectations are achieved remains to be seen. My anticipation is that this will happen sooner rather than later.
I too hope that my July statement comes true, "be it with a lot of salt or a little bit of salt!"
In the meantime, would you like me to get a petition started in order to get Mud back in here or do you think when he has had enough he will come back anyway????
Then again, we could start another competition on Stilo!!!!!!|
|Happy to hear both sides of the story , both bull and bear,
But please try to be impartial and not to embellish information.
Be gracious please, you know you can say i could be wrong here!!|
|"That is coming from somebody who was a long, long, long, long standing critic of Stilo International. I am "MORE THAN QUALIFIED"!!!!! to speak about Stilo International!
Clock, believe me I know something about Stilo International that I will only reveal once the very, very successful story comes to an end in due course when the share price of Stilo International reaches it ultimate high price in due course!!!"
SL - The quote above (that russ505 provided - post 1745) and that we all remember does hint that you have some "insider" knowledge on company developments. This was as recently as July.
You now appear to have changed your stance (once again) and you are predicting more steady growth.
You are a critic of mudbath for what you have described as misleading information. "Pot", "kettle", "black" perhaps?
It doesn't really help your credibility in all honesty does it?
Please explain, otherwise don't point the finger at others.
Firstly, I'd like to see mudbath return since he shared interesting information. Secondly, Stilo doesn't need to grow the topline by much to impact the bottom line quite substantially.
I'd like to think that your July statement comes true, but you can see why most would take what you say with a "big pinch of salt".
Happily long and patient. Increased (by 33%) interim dividend payable on 24th October. Dividends always help as we await developments and hopefully further growth and capital appreciation.|
|Oh, The grand old StiloLosses,
He dabbles in Stilo shares;
For you see he has a "mole",
A fact he likes to tout.
Yet when they went up he was out
And when they went down,he was in
Their "ultimate high price" now beckons,
Or so his inside man reckons.|
|Even I am more than happy to admit, and I have absolutely no shame in saying this, that Mud has given a tremendous amount of solid information on Stilo over the years. The big qualm that I have always had is when he has given information that has been incorrect and way off the mark and when he has overestimated Stilo's potential.
I myself have a solid interest in Stilo, the ONLY difference being that my growth expectations on Stilo are a lot more conservative. I have very good reasons as to why this is. Also one reason being, and this being abundantly obvious year on year when the results are published, that when one area does well such as Omnimark the other area doesn't tend to do well such as Migrate. Over the years this has been evident with all their mix. When you think the company is doing well it then disappoints in certain areas and the growth being slower than expected.
Hopefully, with the introduction of the new product Author Bridge this will help counter that. Even if Migrate does slow then the new additional revenue helping to bridge that gap, something that Stilo has not been able to do for quite some time. If they did then the revenues and profits year on year up to now would have been a lot higher.
When Stilo report then that report has to be analysed in detail and where credit is due it is given, but, of course, if there are certain areas that are not doing as well, then these are going to be criticised.|
|Just invest a reasoable amount if you like the share, then you dont even notice if it goes up or down, its only say £1000, but you still enjoy holding a stake.
In other words you are NOT ATTACHED.
As soon as you put in a lot of money, friction and trouble occurs and you are disappointed most usually is the case.
From your £1000 , perhaps add a bit more if the company does well = problem free!|
|russ505 I might be a bit slow here but what is your point ?  Are you saying SL is going from one extreme to the other?
Lets hope the July posting is right!!!!|
|Maybe other posters may want to share some new information on Stilo with us all!!
Then again, maybe they have no new information that they can share with us!!!!!|
|Then...............It all changed!!!!....as it often does in the investment world. Now I am up big time!!!
Maybe it also changed for Brewin Dolphin's who decided to sell millions and millions of shares.........and.........I think they may have started buying again at a higher price!!!!!!|

I bought in these Stilo shares on 2 separate occasions many years ago and I lost out big time!
I happen to just come across this company recently and thought that I would have a catch up with its progress. Its not surprising to learn that the share price is at its current price but the biggest surprise for me is that the company still continues to trade. Many years ago this company was making all kinds of claims about its products and some 12 years later they still seem to be making these claims.
My advice for anybody would be to keep away and not to invest your monies in a company that will most probably be in the same situation in the next 12 years.|
|So what changed for this poster.

Clock so sorry but I certainly would not consider myself being able to give any advice on DYOR as I have never looked into these from a professional, qualified standing perspective.
The only advice I would give is this though:
Whatever you own: your house, your investments, your bank account balance, your overdraft, any money lying around the house, any worldly goods, any money your can get your hands on, my advice is "PUT EVERYTHING THAT YOU OWN AND POSSESS ON STILO INTERNATIONAL"!!!!!
That is coming from somebody who was a long, long, long, long standing critic of Stilo International. I am "MORE THAN QUALIFIED"!!!!! to speak about Stilo International!
Clock, believe me I know something about Stilo International that I will only reveal once the very, very successful story comes to an end in due course when the share price of Stilo International reaches it ultimate high price in due course!!!
The only thing that concerns me is that big, big Migrate contract coming to a end in 2017 at around £130,000 per year, not forgetting that overall Migrate revenues will also probably be down in 2016, though they have said that Omnimark has increased.
Hopefully, though by 2018 the revenues they will generate from Author Bridge will replace the £130,000 plus Migrate revenues and add additional revenues on top.|
|"It goes back to that old saying "every bit helps"."
Indeed it does SL.
That's all they need. Reasonable incremental rises in revenue which lead to increased profit, cashflow and dividends.|
