|My money was credited to my trading account yesterday
Yes good question .. what to buy now!|
|Recieved my cheque today|
|Uncanny. It just appeared a second ago...what shall I buy now ?|
|I think the money will be here shortly. Not yet credited in Barc account but my IG positions were credited this morning.|
|Wheres my money ?|
|Thanks rest/A0 , not that I need cash urgently - if you just want a steady performer try ABC wish I'd bought it years ago and stuck with it DOM looks similar|
|Date for dispatch of cheques and settlement through Crest
within 14 days of the Effective Date 29th July.
|You might want to put a tiny amount into BLNX it might pay off handsomely in a couple of years.The price has retreated nearly 50%.Worth a look,but DO NOT GO AND BET THE RANCH.|
|Well after supporting this company for 7 long years ...I receive less than half of my investment back .....what a waste of time effort and money.... Following my sameday investment loss think ill just stick to bank interest from now on|
|You should get paid within 14 days of either today or tomorrow.|
|Any news on when we get the 47p?|
|Sold out today to get my money.|
|This is the last day of trading before TFC delists.|
|Well that was that.It is over.
Just damn pleased I don't have to worry about Google giving all the technology away for free.
Good luck and good riddance to the TFC management.
More than a decade has passed since the shares traded over £11 and they sold it for 47p.|
|bored and fighting a loosing battle. Think we are doomed, but TFC will be back some day.
|had tmc sat nav and lost their way .... much like the company|
|Where the hell is the cavalry????|
|Interesting radio broadcast today re the use of road pricing to replace petrol duty and excise duty. Based on CO2 emissions as well. Sounds like a good idea to me.
Just our luck that TFC will go private just as all these good ideas come to fruition.|
|Another hedge fund bought a 1% stake on friday.|
|Tell that to those that bought BP as the start of the year.
You always have market risk.
Luckily I switched most of my winnings into BLNX|
|There is a chance but not very likely. Whilst I agree it's not a good deal I have sold the majority of my shares and re-invested elsewhere. The market has fallen by 10%+ in recent months giving us some decent opportunities. Even if there is another bid, how much more can you expect? The shareholders have already accepted 47p. Why would another bidder offer much more? 50p is as far as you would expect another bidder to go - that's about 7%. You can get better than that on dividend paying FTSE companies with much less risk!|
|isthere any chance of a better deal or shall i just sell and buy something else? This has not been a good investment.|
|Also I have just realised why these US funds have been buyers.They may have an agreement with Vector capital that will carry through to the company being taken private.|
|The management of Trafficmaster should be charged with fraud.....
EXCLUSIVE: 5 Reasons Telematics is Finally on the Verge of Growth
by Guest Editor Yukon Palmer on Jul. 8, 2010, a Telematics Weekly exclusive
Like many other Telematics application providers, I was seduced by the over-exaggerated growth projections from the market analysts during the early 2000's. While our industry experienced moderate growth during the first half of the decade, it always needed some BIG things to happen to help it grow exponentially. This included committed participation by key market drivers such as cellular carriers, customers, device manufacturers, application providers and investors. However, until recently, many of these potential market drivers were never really confident enough to commit. I now believe that our industry is finally poised to take off and here are five reasons why:
Commitment by the cellular carriers:
It is no secret that the cellular carriers have been on the lookout for new sources of revenue. Many have been working with Telematics providers since the late 1990's, but with our low ARPU, they never really took the industry seriously. Initiatives such as the Sprint / M2M DataSmart and AT&T / Jasper Wireless partnerships are showing that the carriers are now getting serious about this space in order to grow their revenues. They will be big proponents of the benefits of Telematics to their huge customer base, which will significantly increase adoption.
Commitment by customers:
As businesses recover from the Great Recession, they will realize that they can no longer ignore the built in inefficiencies within their operations. They will want to operate leaner and will utilize Telematics applications to streamline their processes and reduce unnecessary expenses.
Commitment by device manufacturers:
Due to the wide range of applications, device manufacturers now see the opportunity to sell hundreds of thousands of devices, which will help drive the economies of scale needed to push device costs down. This will help increase adoption since potential end users will no longer view the implementation costs as being as prohibitive as they were in the past.
Commitment by application providers:
Many new application providers are emerging with unique products that will grow the market. This includes Telematics applications designed to help insurance carriers implement pay-per-use policies. In addition, applications such as smart meter reading and remote asset monitoring will help drive growth due to the sheer number of machines throughout the world. The integration of new consumer applications such as Sync and mbrace by auto manufacturers will easily grow the market by millions of new devices. There are also many remote patient monitoring applications that will play a significant role in how healthcare services are delivered in the future.
Commitment by investors:
As we gain additional traction with the cellular carriers, customers, device manufacturers, and application providers, investors will see Telematics as a relatively low risk opportunity and will provide significant funding to our industry.
Now I believe that the market analyst projections that I and trumpeted over and over during the early 2000's are now finally coming to fruition. This is because we finally have the commitment from the market drivers that will propel this industry forward.
