|Agree longshanks, they are going to need a lot bigger hook if they are fishing for my shares.|
|I bought 10k this morning. It had to go to a negotiated trade but my broker didn't have much trouble filling it.I suspect their is some truth in what condom2 says: that the MMs are trying to walk the price down on low volume. The fact that they are restricting the available stock on the offer says to me that they are fishing for weak holders: stock building in other words.We know this could be a great year for SCE and so do the MMs|
|Doesn't seem to take much to bump up the price, buys of only 10,000 shares moves it.|
|My guess is the selling is down to end of the tax year,I am very tempted to add below 20p.they will be having a meeting with OEM3 in early april.|
|Yep Al - they are either buys or sells :)|
|Are those trades at 18.5 buys or sells?|
|Your issue with Cantors seems personal. In an illiquid market, naturally the market can be "manipulated" to some extent but I would argue that to drive the price down only serves the MM if they can acquire stock cheaper than they sell it for.Given we are unlikely to see another placing for some time (if ever) I see little reason for Cantor or any other MM to manipulate the price lower other than to stimulate market demand. There could be a large sell order that a broker may be trying to fill - but that doesn't seem to be the case - we just have persistent selling and limited buying IMO.|
|My point is C*ntors are manipulating the price down .Like they did for the Placing !|
|I don't understand the point you seem to want to make condom2.|
|That would be wrong,because they are such lovely people,who love to help everyone !|
|Condom2 - I like your cynicism - Why not call a spade a spade and substitute the correct letter (u?) for your * ?|
|I was a MM for 27 years,so I do know a little bit about it .If you think C*ntors provide a service you need help.|
|The MM job is to provide an opportunity for retail shareholders to buy and sell stock; they can't dictate the market price as they also want to make money through working the spread.If we have more sellers than buyers the price will drift down; that is just a law of the market I am afraid.Given how illiquid the stock is though, any new surge in demand will trigger a spike in the price with orders limited to the NMS. If we had news tomorrow on Airframe 1 or Porsche signing up to series production- you would not be able to buy much below 30p.As much as anyone, I hate gripping a falling knife but I am relatively sanguine about my policy to add on weakness with SCE. It is a classic AIM stock but one now with a healthy silver lining getting brighter by the week.|
|By watching the screen and ioi's , seems the analyst thinks one thing and MM another .|
|Condom2: Where did you find that Cantors marking down and what new target ?

|Looks like he won't need to bother if Cantors marking it down.|
|Interesting to note the RNS that Kevin D'Silva has exercised options.They expired on 29 March but had an exercise price of 21p. I am sure he could have bought 50k shares at 20p in the market and just let the options lapse. I guess this way he provides the company with a further £10k of working capital.Interesting too to note that Kevin Johnson has options expiring on 29 March for 100k shares at the same price. I suspect those will be allowed to lapse, but he will be working his cotton socks off to get the share price up before his next, much larger tranche of options lapse in June 2018.|
|I note McLaren revealed the new 720S at the Geneva motor show this week.This is a replacement for the 650S and presumably the carbon ceramic disks continue to be supplied by Brembo/SGL.I did find this article though about someone who had problems wth the disks:hTTp://www.mclarenlife.com/forums/mclaren-650s/50937-carbon-ceramic-brakes-discs-2.html#/topics/50937?page=4&_k=rd3ur4It seems odd that McLaren should have recommended using steel disk replacements when doing track days!!Hopefully Akebono and McLaren have taken note of such issues and pushed for supply of a more robust carbon ceramic disk rotor. Only one supplier of performance disks though so they would have had to drop Brembo/SGL.|
|I have been adding over the last few weeks but I don't think I am alone: this is looking very well bid with retail buying efforts limited to negotiated trades. There is stock available at 20.5p but I struggled to fill an order at 20.25p so I suspect we have a sizeable order being filled for someone at/around 20p.If news on airframe 1 or an automotive OEM came in tomorrow I would expect a strong jump in the sp, but given the current planned timescales, I would still expect a developing upward trend towards the mid-20's now.|
|SCE have highlighted on Facebook that a new world record for the fastest ever self-driving car has just been set by the NIO EP9 - using SCE carbon ceramic brakes:
|Yep. Not particularly well bid either at 20.75p.|
|Strange spread the 20.95 trdes are buys|
|Here's a full transcript of that interview FYI....
|David can be hilarious ! Very good interview|
|Good positive interview I thought with some interesting snippets of information.
Notable for me was that the group encompassing OEMs 2,3 and 4 currently spend £70m pa on CC disks, with that spend expected to rise to £100m pa by 2020.
The product issue is presumably the "salt-water" issue that we know is being worked on. As far as I am aware it is just a case of operating the disks for enough hours under certain conditions. Replicating all those conditions may be part of the problem - but overall it is just a matter of time and additional "research" spend.
AM presumably don't care so much about the issue because it is less relevant to them, just as it is irrelevant to Koenigsegg.
In the case of this large German group though, we are talking much larger scale and therefore more i's to dot and t's to cross.
I agree with you, timbo, that DB's turn of phrase did bring a few smiles.|
