|phew...just managed to get out of these with a decent profit....Merry Xmas all|
|Hold recommendation from Growth Company Investor
|really good results here, should be worth investing in a company that's actually made some money lol|
|Thanks for the help guys
i'll check out the plus trades. Still think VSC is good value, so am holding for now.
|If you dont have Level 2 and want to view the plus trades on ADVFN type in PLUS:VSC.gb into the trades section|
|The volume can be misleading unless you have level 2 which shows te trades that go through in the plus markets.Not a great deal has passed through since yesterday, but plenty more than lse volume states.... This was always going to happen, as profit takers moved on from a successful short term trade.. Also, the MM will have used this to shake any weak holders out, and now good buying support at 60p again.. The way i see it is, do you think this is still good value, then buy some on weakness....|
|Just everyone who bought too high from Naked traders tip now panicking and selling off.
Im not sure how he gets away with his 'tips' as its verging on a pump and dump..hes built up such a following that if everyone jumps in it is almost guaranteed to rise. As bad as a certain short term trader in the FT.
I agree also, hes economical with the truth...couldnt have bought for 52p..yes that was the mid price but he would have paid 57p..bit of a difference.
Also take a look at his sells...a few often go way past his stop loss, but then if they bounce back he will say he sold above his stop loss and still made a profit. Everyone else would have sold out at a loss.
Has the most amazing crystal ball Ive seen, I suppose it helps when you dont have to report what you have done until well after the event|
|Any ideas why the big drop today with hardly any volume ??
My profit has been eaten up this morning.
No volume yesterday here either? - Tho i notice from sharw that advfn only gives lse trades?!|
|RB looks for breakouts, this was a prime candidate to move and move fast. If a share sits in a tight range with ok but not great liquididty, when it moves out of the range it tends to move rapidly and hard. Could be getting up to £1 quite quickly because there is just no selling pressure!|
ADVFN only show LSE trades - a greater volume in small stocks goes through PLUS and this appears to be the trade under discussion:
05/08/2009 16:05:33 52.00 10,000 O 5,200.00
|Call me an old cynic but I would doubt MrNakedtrader website trades stating that he bought on 5th August at 52p as there was no 10000 trades that day. Check our own ADVFN trades listed for 5th August-
He also states that the shares were "stuck at 50p for weeks and weeks"
Before this nice mark up last week this stock last seen 50p back in October 2008
A little uneconomical with the truth me thinks regarding Visonic.
However, that said, some startling gains across the portfolio.
As always DYOR
|And that would be illegal........
Seriously though i know what you mean - it must be tempting to sell straight away! Release a buy rec, watch it rise 40% and then get out.
Do his sell notes cause similar carnage on the downside? I have never looked at that side but i cant imagine its pretty.|
|I agree with you, its like printing money for him, but his credentials are so highly rated, and such a large following, but his criteria for picking shares is based on soild fundementals, and clean balance sheets, which has put him where he is.. Having said that, i would love to be where he is now.. i would have my trading stock ready to sell, the moment the market makers stopped the huge mark up on the day it was tipped, then keep my mid term stuff for capitol growth.. But thats just me..|
|he has certainly generated volume for now....|
|Is it not somewhat of a self fulfilling prophecy though?
If i pick a small high risk stock with relatively low volumes and send that tip to X thouusand of people who all buy in i am sure i could have a similar track record.
Its just pump and dump on a massive scale - but fairplay to the guy for gettimg the following in the first place. Thats the bit that takes the skill.|
|He has an e mail subscription as well which alerts you to his buys 2 hours before the web site gets it..Also he tips high risk stuff which he buys through his sipp.. Tell you something, this guys track record is scarily good.Not sure how he does it on such a regular basis though........|
|This bloke i guess - he has quite a following! Look at the stocks he has picked and all show similar rises! http://www.thenakedtrader.co.uk/trades.htm
Must be a nice position to be in - post your buys and everyone piles in!!|
|whats driving the movement ?|
|Did say that this was one that not a lot of investors were watching.
19% increase in my small holding today is good news indeed.
|certainly is :)|
|Is this a little gem that not a lot of people have spotted?|
they are doing a good job ...
back above 0,60 :-)

LONDON (Thomson Financial) - Visonic Ltd. said its pretax profit for the
first half increased four fold on a 20 percent increase in sales and added that
that positive trend in sales has continued into the beginning of the second half of 2008. The company it derived the performance from its well-established customer base, reflecting rising demand for Visonic's products in its major geographic markets Europe and North America, as well as the success of Visonic's strategy of building sales by developing new channels to market through relationships with major security and utility companies.
For the six months ended June 30, the company said its pretax profit jumped
to $4.3 million compared with 1 million last year as its sales rose to $44.65
million compared with $37.1 million last year.|
|The trouble with this one is that it has become so illiqid. As far as I can see only four trades on two days in the last 3 weeks - 3 trades, value about £9k, on 21st and 5k, value £2.4k, this morning.|
|good news today :-)
bad that there are not more shares offered at 0,45 - 0,40 - .... to buy :-)
