|What's causing the drop ;is there a seller or just plain boredom .I picked up 1£k's worth yesterday.|
|Seems not a lot of interest here.
Agree progress is at a very slow pace.
Skypharma is the key here.|
|I sold a while back- better investments out there. This is cheap but it is clear that any progress is at a slow pace, and there's very little substance in the RNSs. If there is a substantial announcement then I'll re-evaluate but only invest here if you have money doing nowt IMHO|
|Been looking at this for some time now, but still can't decide when to dip me toes in.
like the most recent statement.
|I expect a further update in the next two months which will transform the company. I have no insider knowlledge but a company does not float on the market for no reason. THe business update provides sufficient implication for me.|
|Long time no post!
And then, like buses, two come along together!
New article and analysis!
|It's DYOR time boys and girls; not one for day trading that's for sure but finally..finally they have begun to deliver on what they came to the market to do.|

|The Financial Times on 10th July featured an article on Computacentre, which talked of its drive into managed services and its focus on offering a range of infrastructure services that complement customers'in-house IT departments, saying this has proved attractive in the market and has enabled Computacentre to grow is managed service revenues.
There were rumours earlier this year about Computacentre planning to make a 95p per share bid for Synstar, which was denied at the time. Now that Hewlett Packard has accquired Synstar, would anyone have a view on the likelihood of Computacentre turning its attention to Netstore?|
|do not see it falling through but nothing to stop you selling ... I continue to hold on off chance of a new bid and the extra few pennies by selling to the bidder|
|Is there any chance this takeover could fall through if Fujitsu get really upset about this? Should I sell now to the market? Any views?|
|OMG is worth checking out...owners of subsidiary Vicon Systems, manufacturers of the worlds first 4million pixel motion capture technology, used in Spiderman 2, Thunderbirds etc. End of year 30/9. Currently at resistance level of 28p, Will probably drift a few pence lower before then if you want to buy in at a good price. Looking very bullish. DYOR
Recent Interim statement available on company
Major player at this years Siggraph trade
|After just taking the contract from Logicom to give to Synstar to find that a competitor is now going to do their logistics I am told that Fujisu are none too impressed with this take over.|
|i guess that was one of the reasons why the hedge funds were buying|
|Fujitsu have a £200 million contract with Synstar, surely it would be better for them to put in an offer to buy than to let HP service their contract.|
|offer documents arrived this am - closing date 03/09|
|bought most of mine low as well but still like to get as much as I can
MRS Stock talk : Some Synstar holders cashed in
A quiet day for Synstar - flat at 101p
- after some activity late yesterday
pushed shares slightly above H-P bid
price of 100p.
Trader says hedge funds bought on
counterbid hopes while some insti-
tutions have cashed in around bid price
rather than wait.
Lorne Daniel at Evolution Beeson
Gregory says counterbid is possible,
but takeover premium is already hefty
enough to deter many.

ness continuity market for other hard-
ware players. (NPF)

|geoftheref - decided I had a use for the money - 99.5p was OK by me - bought mine low. Good Luck all.|
|+0, (101) at 09:10pm
12.08.04 :an article in the Guardian reports: the shares closed at 101p with dealers unconvinced a counterbid will emerge. They noted that the bulk of yesterday's trading was caused by existing shareholders selling out to hedge funds, which are taking a punt on the possibility of another bid emerging. 'I cannot believe institutions would be selling out if they thought another offer was likely,' said one, noting that the price offered for Synstar is in line with other recent deals in the IT sector. He also pointed out that five fund managers, who collectively own nearly 35%, have pledged to back the offer.|
