|elrico: Apologies for off topic, but you should be aware! Anyone tempted to go to the self promoting bmichaelmouse - serial basher.
Here's what you won't learn from his guru skills.
Interesting spin, especially the topic of the share price. Remind us of your two darling "growth" investments on a 12 month view.
Avanti; THE FRAUD! 250p now 24.5p - by his own admission he bought at 170p and 120p and advised buying at 48,p. If you were brave, being his caveats.
Another of his growth stocks
Trakm8: The cash guzzler and creative accounting magician 360p now 153p. But to be fair, you got a maiden 2p divi. Shame it can't afford it. Isn't that the same trick a number of Chinese frauds use to sucker investors in!
But his favourite part-time is bashing TW related stock and attacking other posters invested in certain stock, like someuwin. Revenge for short advice on some of michaelmouse shares.
Don't worry someuwin - he surely can't blame two premium uses as being the same person. His usual ploy when more than one person disagrees with him. Someuwin always keeps his counsel.|
|topinfo: In 1993 Johnson and Osmond took control of Pizza Express, with Johnson becoming chairman. They expanded the business from 12 owned restaurants to over 250, and the share price from 40p to over 900p.|
|topinfo: Luke Johnson 11%
Luke Oliver Johnson (born 2 February 1962), is a British serial entrepreneur, best known for his involvement with Pizza Express. He is a former chairman of the Royal Society of Arts and Channel 4. He writes a weekly column for The Sunday Times. Johnson calls himself a "projector", in line with the 17th century term for a man involved in many different businesses.
He is the part owner and chairman of Patisserie Valerie, Gail's Artisan Bakery and Feng Sushi among other businesses. He is a former owner The Ivy, Le Caprice and J Sheeky restaurants and a former part owner of Giraffe Restaurants.
In 1993 Johnson and Osmond took control of Pizza Express, with Johnson becoming chairman. They expanded the business from 12 owned restaurants to over 250, and the share price from 40p to over 900p. After selling the business in 1999 Johnson started Signature Restaurants, a ‘crown jewels’ collection of London restaurants which included The Ivy and Le Caprice, as well as the Belgo chain. He also started Strada restaurants from scratch, taking the chain to 30 units. He sold both businesses in 2005; the total proceeds from these two disposals were in excess of £90 million.
Whilst chairman of the Belgo group Johnson took part in the BBC programme "Back to the Floor", a programme in which top executives spent a week at the "coal face" of their business. Some reviewers of the programme were uncomplimentary about Johnson.|
|webster is back: baxtea.
Company pointed out in Jan there was no reason for the share price rise. As nothing has happened since the share price rise today does not appear to have been justified. I simply took a punt on the momentum rise and sold out for a nice profit when the shsres were up 28.1%. They are now up 18% but I expect this to fall further as day traders (mostly without scruples) who operate on another thread will soon depart.I do not associate myself with these fickle people.|
|ten bag man: For those after cash way over the share price SRO.
£2.6M in the bank V market cap of just £1.2M.|
|casino444: after rhe lastest statement by the company hopefully we should see a better 2015 for the share price as the stock is still far to low|
|bottomfisher: Now that Peter Bertram, executive chairman of Phoenix IT, the struggling data storage company, has overseen the refinancing of the business and recruited a well respected CEO to turn the business round, what hope is there that he might finally be able to work the same sort of magic at Ten Alps (TAL) where he is chairman?
TAL's TV business, which produces some excellent award winning documentaries for the likes of BBC and Channel 4, ought to be worth something. The big unknown is whether there is any value left in the slimmed down publishing business.
TAL, which dumped its buccaneering chief executive a long time ago in a bid to cut costs, badly needs a proper chief executive to run the shop. It also needs yet another refinancing to repair the holes in its balance sheet. Since Bertram joined as chairman at the end of 2010 it has raised money at 8p a share and 2.5p a share. Given the current lowly share price (0.8p) it is hard to see existing shareholders stumping up fresh cash.
We can but live in hope that TAL's shares are not completely worthless, and Mr Bertram can rescue this business.|
|sandbank: Well I'm just trying to get a feel for this one so any observations by long-standing 'Alpers would be welcome
Superficially any company whose annual profits are more or less equal to its capitalisation has got to be worth buying - but clearly TAL has been struggling for months so hopefully yesterday afternoon's rise - which seems to be continuing today - really does mark the end of the long decline .
Hopefully now, with a new chairman Alphameric's Peter Bertram (who's an accountant thank goodness) things are beginning to turn around.
It's surprising to see that despite the decline in the share price ( and yes, I do realise there was a dilution earlier this year ) two of the executive directors were still paying themselves quite generously in the circumstances.
A.M. Connock - one of the firm's founders - was paid £215,000 last year and
A.J. Dunleavy was paid £280,000. Non exec Brian Walden wisely stood down to make way for the new chairman - but stays on the board. Non-exec Bob Geldof (who seems to have one of the largest shareholdings in the company ) took most of his fees in yet more shares. There are also some quite respectable names like Blackrock on the shareholders register.
Last year's headcount was higher than the year before's and there's probably quite a bit of internal tidying up to do to improve efficiency. The continuing squeeze on broadcast budgets isn't going to help TAL turn the corner either but after yesterday's share price rise maybe Geldof should re-write his former hit record "I Don't Like Mondays"|
|patricia59: Ok, this company just made 13 mil loss and bosses already trying to work out if share price rises they would get massive bonus.|
|patricia59: ten alps are set to launch latest incentive scheme!!!
Management have been quite disturbed by the recent fall
in the share price, so they have decided to offer an incentive scheme
for every week the share price does not drop. Senior directors
will be paid a bonus. However, if the share price drops bonuses
will not be affected. This is open to any senior directors who
wants to take part, as our last incentive on our share price rising
had 100% participtation. You will not be suprise to hear we have
already had 100% take up on this offer. A City source has questioned
that they were recently given 90,000 shares each. a senior excutive
at ten alps said we are in a win win situation and the recent award of
shares was not an an incentive bonus. LOL!!!|
