|Anyone else thinking this looks a good short to take out?|
|...and the Director share sales continue...|
|This thread and analysis by Paul Scott is essential reading for any shareholder in YOU or indeed potential investors...
I note that directors have happily been selling shares over the past year or so and at much lower prices.|
|Chaps, I'm not sure why this thread is so quiet...
You Gov has been on my watchlist for a while as i did not have cash. Can anyone provide detail or examples on the exceptional items?
|As quiet as the amount of cash the company generates! Used to be in this but got fed with all the exceptional items.|
|Results on Monday.
What a quiet thread.|
|Yougov's credibility is surely damaged by their misjudgement of the election result. Being able to say that the other pollsters also called it wrong is no excuse.
I used to be on a Yougov panel, and although I gave honest replies, I was doing so for the rewards offered, and it occurred to me at the time that there must other panel members giving dishonest answers just to collect rewards for filling in the form - fill more forms, get more rewards. They amended the system but it still seemed too easily corrupted.|
|QS99 -- you should read that blog from Mr Scott .. it makes perfect sense .. They've been capitalising stuff for quite some time and not v happy that the panel is not being expensed .. the cost base is still too high ..W|
|Let's hope this major move North continues today....|
|Cheers, much appreciated. Like you not sure where markets are heading. Am still in OPAY as think there will be more upgrades and has come back down to a sensible rating at 18 times next year given growth story IMO.
otherwise am looking at individual plays like the WIN debt to equity value flip, SYNT massive director buying and STVG looking oversold IMO...
DTG is an interesting one, just that all airlines etc have been hammered...
|To be honest, I'm feeling pretty clueless at the moment. Not sure that there's that much on the horizon. I bought these and a few others during the financial crisis and have done pretty well. I'm keeping an eye on all the online retailers that are getting smacked. All look too expensive but there might be an opportunity to get in at reasonable prices. Looking at ASC, AO. BOO and Zooplus (GR). I like buying ex-GOGO stocks which have warned a few times. YouGov was in that category, as was Optimal Payments (ex-Neteller). I've still a v large position in Dart, which is still v cheap.
|well done you Woozle1 triple your money is a great shout! I'll see re shares mags...thnx. Anything else you think will triple? hehe|
|It must have been tipped in one of the share mags. Just sold out my entire holding of 200,000 shares after reading Mr Scott's article on their accounting. They have a history of exceptionals and I've never liked the fact that they capitalise the costs of the panel. V happy as I bought these in the doldrums at 37p.|
|and still very quiet....despite 7% rise...|
|OK who lit the fuse?|
|a very quiet board this one....|
|paul Scott doesn't care for their aggressive accounting.|
|New high and to come.|
|Quite agree dashton|
|This share has had a good run lately. I got in following some coverage in the Financial Times a while back, and so far, so good. It's a fairly high profile company that features frequently on tv political news items, but also is off the radar of many investors. Just how I like it!|
|testing new highs possibility of breaking through 100p|
|Harris was acquired on a multiple ex cash of about 15 times .. That makes you worth 115p on last years numbers .. Also Harris only just returned to profit after years of losses .. You should start growing at 15-20% pa as new revenue streams start to kick in .. W|
|Neilsen bought harris interactive, so presumably speculation re that|
|Finally some movement.|
