The note was from finnCap who were fired as Nomad and broker just after the interims last August and were replaced by Investec. Their reports on AFRN ceased to become available and now we have this demolition job out of the blue. Hell hath no fury like a broker scorned.

The change at 24i, announced on 21/3, sounded relatively harmonious to me.

We should have a trading statement for the half year soon (8/6/21 and 8/6/20) so I'm at least hanging on to then.

Read a fairly negative broker note on AFRN at the weekend. 150p target. Mentioned the 24i CEO had moved on (been fired?). The 2025 goals are a pipe dream and it's the set top boxes that are currently saving their bacon.

Aferian plc, the B2B video streaming solutions company, issued a trading update this morning. The Group expects to report that all its key financial metrics have tracked ahead of the prior year, and in line with Board expectations, representing an overall strong trading performance. As well as delivering further progress against its stated 2025 growth strategy, the Group has also successfully navigated well-documented global supply chain challenges. Top line performance is improving, bottom line performance is improving. Valuation is reasonable with forward PE ratio around 14, there is even a modest dividend yield around 2.4%. Share price lacks near term momentum, but an interesting company and certainly one to monitor for now...from WealthOracleAM

I had a good run with this share a few years ago then sold out.

I have been back in for some months now, primarily because Kestrel have a holding. Kestrel seem to me overall to have a good record and I have done OK elsewhere by following them.

The results are fine but this just does not seem to be a high profile share. For me it's one to hang on to for a couple of years.

One issue for AFRN is that none of their acquisitions has ever really fired dramatic growth. I woke up to how lackluster 24i had been at the Prelims earlier this year and sold out after it re-rated.

In H1 'software and services revenue' was up $0.2m, $9.9m from $9.7m.

The $250m story is enticing but growth of only 2.1% is not setting the world on fire.
