20pc: Superg1 I recall a discussion on lse re the vrs share price, where you and i were a bit reluctant to say we could see the share price at £1 well that is pretty much nailed on now, probably in the next few weeks. Well enough memory lane stuff. Its back to the future, VRS.

fuji99: superg1 - Agree that if someone is accumulating in multiple of thousands, a few pennies cheaper will make a difference. Another thing to add is that every share goes up and down. If a stock has excellent fundamentals we shall see a share price moving upwards in a "yoyo ascending" mode. Of course, any news of high value that can positively affect the company revenues will be reflected in its market cap which is directly connected to the share price valuation. So, if say tomorrow VRS announces that it signed a long term deal with a big fish in the sector, the share price could hit £1 in just a few days. So all is in the potential of a company, which VRS has a great one. A few pennies daily fluctuations will not change the future prospects nor the potential of VRS, thus why I always go for long term when one spots a long term play which VRS is. VRS is not a trading share as it could be dynamite at any time. Anyone daily trading this is playing with fire as sometimes there won't be any lucky escape. There are hundreds of heavy stocks that could be daily traded from the mining to pharmas but this one could be a red hot chilli.

superg1: Fuji There were some late reported 80k trades for the 7th. 1 may be a duplicate so my guess either 160k short or 240k short. That would explain the strange behaviour around close in the days we mentioned. That type of game is all about trying to scare the weak hands which it always does. A pathetic line or two. The share price behaviour to me looks like someone has been accumulating and there are a number of trades that can be pointed out. I know there were funds looking that were not able to invest due to the market cap at that time. On the supply side of things it seems to be bad timing. As I said around 14-15 mill of supply was there in November which excludes some decent primary bid flips. During that time the share price went on a strong climb. With all that stock gone potentially a stupid time to short it. But then they don't do that sort of research and just rely on lemmings to provide the exit point. We'll see how the week goes on but it would be madness to build a decent short as imo there is no the extensive gearing problem here that happens on some. Imo as the Isa pots have grown now we a re a few years in there is less reliance on SBs and the like for the tax benefits. Then of course on SBs it has it's own sort of tax when it come to wide spreads. You can get a far better price in normal share dealing than on SBs when the spreads open up. In fact you can have a situation where margin calls and stops can be triggers on SBs without the share price moving. They did it to someone on IOF recently by briefly and opening up the spread taking out his position about 30-40% below the market price.

turbocharge: To facilitate the orderly ascent of the VRS share price and to avoid any unnecessary discomfiture, VRS shareholders are requested to observe the following: - Be aware that it is less stressful to have a steady, but rising SP, rather than one that yo-yos wildly. - Juveniles, rampers, soothsayers, and those of a nervous or angry disposition are asked to desist from making posts with unfounded claims. - As pointed out by Spike_1, do not enter into ridiculous hyping! - In the interests of civility and in the spirit of the festive season, swearwords and profanity is to be avoided at all costs. It may also be useful to remind people of post #14341 "VRS holders are reminded that this is a company in the serious business of helping industry to exploit the exceptional added-value and benefits that graphene brings to a whole host of applications and products. It is incumbent upon me, as a shareholder, to point out that a company functions not at the behest of shareholder whims or calls for the issue of a RNS, but with a view of meeting business objectives, which will no doubt result in maximising shareholder value. It is my considered opinion that too much yo-yoing of the share price is unhelpful in the long run. What is pleasing to see at the moment is that the VRS share price seems to have become pretty stable around the 75-85 level. Contracts, business objectives, and infrastructure do take time to be put in place; we have seen some excellent progress in VRS which has brought the share price to these healthy levels. I would like to suggest that a slow and steady rise, fuelled by some further jumps when new deals are announced, is the preferred way forward. In the meanwhile, those of a nervous disposition are advised to keep an eye on the advent calender." Please feel free to add suggestion on the conduct of this message board.

shavian: Like Ridicule I have searched the heavyweight weekend press for a mench of VRS/ Nanene. Nothing. Zip. Not even a whiff of graphene. The Torygraph article on electric aeroplanes came closest with a section on the need for light weight airframes and batteries. But the writer Alan Tovey obviously has not clocked the significance of graphene, or has no clue about how close we are to commercialisation. Dimbo - i think I'll drop him a line. Elsewhere in this weeks media, Money Week's main article was on 'where to find the hottest growth stocks'. Aha, thought I, here we go. Nope, not a sniff there either. However, the article was interesting in that it summarised the views of three respected fund managers (Harry Nimmo of Standard Life, Anthony Cross of Liontrust and Jake Robbins of Premier) on what makes the perfect growth stock. Let's see how VRS stacks up against their criteria: *Growth of earnings and Revenue VRS - on its way *Consistency and Visibilty of future earnings VRS - tick *Able to return earnings greater than cost of capital. VRS -looks likely *Not a Blue Sky company with no earnings VRS - tick *Not a mature company with no room to grow VRS - no way! *ability to sustain a competitive advantage VRS - hope so *Owns own Intellectual Property and Brands VRS - yup *Strong customer relationships - VRS - looks like it *Strong leadership with >3% skin in the game - VRS in spades! Look like we'll tick all the boxes here, folks. And who needs media awareness when just the jungle drums have doubled the share price in a week? Looking forward to the coming week. GLA

luckyorange: Must admit superg hadn't read it at all, but it's well written so copied it here. 'Those with a penchant for small-cap stocks may have noticed the magnificent share price gains of graphene supplier Versarien (LSE: VRS) over the past couple of weeks. While agreeing with a Foolish colleague that the market minnow still represents a risky purchase, I think the potential rewards on offer make it one worth taking for those with sufficiently long investment time horizons. Before looking at my reasons for this, let’s peruse today’s interim numbers. “Significant interest” Group revenues jumped 167% over the six months to the end of September to a little under £4.4m. Although a lack of profit is to be expected at this stage, pre-tax losses at the advanced engineering materials firm almost halved to £770,000 from £1.47m over the same period in 2016. Away from the figures, Versarien confirmed that it had seen “significant interest” from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for its “few layer graphene non-platelets” (otherwise known as Nanene) over the reporting period. In addition to being awarded two competitive framework tenders to provide its products to the Centre for Process Innovation, Versarien’s Total Carbide business also received its “largest ever order” for parts to be used by “the UK’s largest aero engine manufacturer“. As positive as all this sounds, it’s the news since the end of the September that’s really got investors salivating. Arguably the most significant announcements have been those relating to collaborations with Israel Aerospace Industries and a leading global consumer goods company to use Nanene in its packaging. Elsewhere, the establishment of a US sales office in Palo Alto (home of Tesla Motors) “to exploit significant opportunities in the region” is another promising development. Of course, any one set of results from a company are backward-looking and only a snapshot. To really appreciate the investment case for Versarien, you need to see the bigger picture. Only the beginning Although the recently-announced collaborations are a huge lure, it’s what might be revealed over the coming weeks that could really put a rocket under the share price. With the company already hinting at further deals being announced before the end of the year (and November’s £2.8m fundraising now allowing it to scale up Nanene production by a factor of 10), I think those taking a position today could still be handsomely rewarded prior to the market closing for the festive break. Another thing I like about Versarien is the fact that CEO Neill Ricketts also happens to be its largest shareholder. When the person running the company has a significant proportion of his own wealth invested, you can be fairly sure that his interests will be aligned with those of its other owners. My last reason for backing it is perhaps the most important to its success over the long term; namely, the quality of the graphene it produces. While competitors exist, the AIM-listed company is the only one to have had its product independently approved by the University of Manchester — the home of the miracle material. To my mind, that kind of scientific credibility can’t be bought. While some share price volatility is perhaps inevitable as traders take profits (and confirmation bias shouldn’t be ignored), the investment case for Versarien is nothing short of compelling, in my view. Quit the rat race If graphene really does take off, long-term holders of Versarien's stock could become very wealthy indeed. That said, investing in early-stage companies isn't for everyone.'

luckyorange: Just want to turn the rise on it's head a little. When a company has some bad news and the share price plummets day after day you do get the occasional comment that the fall is overdone but it is acceptable due to the circumstances, but when a value investment stock rises which to be fair quite a few can see why VRS has risen, but some can't understand it. There are important factors in the what seems a meteoric rise over the last couple of weeks when in fact if you really look into over the last 9 months it isn't. Bold statement eh? The 15p placement should have been 20p and the 18p placement should have been at 25p, but it wasn't because? Dodgy fund managers who use the placements to not support the company which they all say yeah yeah yeah (Katie and Gervais aside) we won't sell, when in fact their strategy is to sell when they calculate that another placing will take place and start selling weeks before. Strategy then kicks in to sell aggressively to force the price down with a minimum of 10% less than the previous placing aiming for at least 25% , which from memory I think HAYD recently experienced. When they have a sniff of when a placing is required they will ring the CEO, yes we will support you but look at the share price and so ad infinitum, instead of supporting industry and good companies some of the II's will kill it so that their particular fund manager gets a pat on the back and a bonus, which of course the shareholders are paying for. NR is smart and has cottoned on to their methods and as much as Primary Bid is disliked by me because it is a traders and mm's paradise to make 10%, in this case it has served it's purpose because the chart was saying before the 18p raise that it was going to be at 10p. IF LO hadn't sold aggressively we would probably be above where we are now, not so scary then is it? From what I understand there are a few more coming on board (correct me if I'm wrong) hence 80p being in sight in the near term, from 50p that is a 60% rise. If we could rely on shareholders to hold (which LO didn't) , then the extreme volatility is taken out of the SP, all that is happening is a re-rate to where it should have been had it not been decimated by large holders desperate to make short term profits. Current share price not meteoric just a balancing situation , it should have gradually risen to here over the last six months . 80p is where it should be when the other OEM's come on board and the results are factored in. No warrants in play which will usually stymie a share price, no fundraising, no huge BOD draining the resources and adding nothing, no very large holders at the moment other than NR so share price is largely de-risked . Make of that what you will.

the stigologist: There is a distinct lack of understanding and knowledge about how the market works from some people on this thread. i.e. they are stupid (i usually beat about the bush and call them 'hard of thinking' but I don't think they get it) If you tell an empty room that VRS is great it will have zero impact on the share price. If you tell a room full of Silicon Valley CEOs and Global elite hedge fund managers that VRS is great and will be THE dot com stock of 2020 you can bet some will take notice and there will be an impact on the share price. VRS is now in the latter position of gaining mindshare. Rather than talking to this empty room of an ADVFN BB VRS are gaining mindshare on the Global stage and so a completely different Corporate and Investing community will take notice. When they are controlling the share price it can easily go to £1, £10, £100 but off course that's beyond the limited imaginations and intellect of most on this BB

grabster: Someone above displayed his own calculations of where the VRS share price might go and concluded that doubling over the next 12 months was a fair bet. My bet is nearer to a doubling within 12 weeks (say 50p by late February).
