diplomat65: Can anyone explain if there is a link between today's RNS announcing Leon and Sue Boros spreadbet and the 7.5p jump in share price?
glasshalfull: Good morning folks, Courtesy to declare I’ve also been buying. When the share price took off on the “comfortably ahead” statement in July I waited for it to settle down, but it never did & just kept going! Refreshing to read this investment thread. A mixture of good analysis & industry background. Quite a few excellent investors/ posters here & delighted to see patience rewarded for many of you. Looks like a few newbies such as myself are waking up to the ARC story. In my own case the recent stock market wobble & retrace in the share price by (-27%) in a little over 8 weeks was the catalyst for me to buy in over recent days. Clearly madmix & myself were waiting patiently for the opportunity :-) The investment case has been v well documented on the thread. The high recurring annual license fees coupled with the prospect of op gearing kicking as they expand software sales with existing clients and hopefully convert further Tier 1 trials. Looks an excellent risk/ reward investment IMHO. Kind regards, GHF
multibagger: Madmix, There is never much ARC stock to be it moves quite a lot either way, on any kind of trading volume.If you buy the ARC story with its level of recurrent revenue and the fact that most of any new contracts/revenues will go straight to profits, there is no quick way to build a decent sized position. There are some large investors always willing to hoover up the shares when they come on sale. At this share price, we are still very undervalued taking into our cash position and PE ex-cash. Good luck :)
cbootle: Not exactly - ARC puts their infrastructure inside top-tier investment banks' own data centres, and adds software to their trading systems. BKS on the other hand, is cloud based, providing to a certain extent a replacement or equivalent to the big banks' systems, allowing (relatively) smaller financial companies to trade. BKS brings in datafeeds (and has to pay for them) whereas ARC uses the banks' feeds - whichever the banks have paid for. I might be wrong, but I believe top-tier investment banks won't touch 3rd party "cloud". BKS share price has been rising sharply, any thoughts on the fundamentals? If I read it rightly, one director (only!) owns about 60%, worth £34m.
bones: hpcg, my ONLY gripe was that GN did little more than look at the press release as it was clearly his last port of call for the day. I am totally relaxed about his decision! His loss as it happens. I enjoy the SCVR like many but to say they concentrate on only value propositions is totally inaccurate these days. PS in particular is mostly into internet retailers with potential explosive top line growth. GN seems to be mainly into fund management companies! If PS himself took a look at ARC, I think he might see value to be honest. Or would have done at the interims stage before the share price took off. I'm happy to close this debate on here anyway. :)
bones: I see profit taking being well absorbed this morning. A wholly positive set of results, increase in dividend, picture painted of many openings in commercial business on the horizon.The share price ought to be build over the next few weeks I think.
bones: Just looking at Finncap's estimates on Research Tree, seems to be 2018 PBT of £0.5m on sales of £2.5m (published after Aug 17 results and left unchanged after Feb 18 interims)I've seen Paul Scott describe the term "comfortably ahead" meaning 10% or a little more. Anything too much larger would be "significantly ahead".However, we have no real idea about how ARC management or their NOMAD might have defined "comfortably ahead".For the record, Finncap had a target price of 85p so that has long been blown out of the water.My feeling is that the 2018 PBT needs to be nearer £0.7m with a sense that business on the new products is starting to gain traction (hence more upfront cash and profits falling to the bottom line in larger dollops), in order to act as a springboard for the share price from our current 118p.I am quietly confident that this can happen given the conservative nature of the management.Other unknowns include the approach to using cash such as increasing dividend or looking for acquisitions?
multibagger: Courtesy of, and thanks to Xajorkith for kindly sharing....pasting the article in case the link gets corrupted. Sounds very upbeat ! We know ;) How Low Can You Go? March 20, 2018 | CJ Exposure Research Arcontech (LSE:ARC) are a microcap technology company, with an incredibly low market cap of c.£10m, however, our belief is that their prestigious client base is more representative of a large cap software services provider than a fledgling provider due to the premium nature of the consumers, which include JP Morgan, Citi and the Bank of England. They are the leading provider for the niche segment that they operation in, which is for real-time market data management solutions, where they specialise in market data distribution and trading systems based on their award winning CityVision product suite. Arcontech are helping the Tier 1 and Tier 2 names to stay at the head of the digitalisation trend, with real-time market analytics, which we believe is a trend set to gain momentum and visibility given the end-market demand for real-time data. Source: Arcontech We see a growing appetite for the application of Arcontech’s products and expect that we are in the very early stages of their growth story. Currently valued as a microcap company, we expect Arcontech’s shares to see significant upside as they are able to grow their own prestige; offering more services to their current customer pool, increasing revenues from these clients, expanding to further Tier 1 names, and gaining more Tier 2 clients as the rest of the marketplace catches up on the digitalisation trend with the end-market consumers increasingly demanding real-time data, as previously mentioned. The impartial nature of the business, being vendor independent, also adds a great appeal for Arcontech to be the provider of choice for regulatory bodies, as demonstrated during the client engagement article on their website relating to the application of CityVision MVCS to a Central Bank. The other worked examples of Arcontech’s solution include the integration and expansion of their API capabilities, combined with the Excelerator functionality for a Tier 1 trading desk query, with the end product spreading to all 20 of the client’s multi-asset trading desks. These examples display the intense level of cooperation and innovation that Arcontech holds core to its capabilities and offering, and is crucial to our belief that Arcontech will be able to expand their niche and advanced services to a larger client pool to continue to add significant value to their proposition and share price. Arcontech are able to collaborate with, and resolve the queries of, the highly demanding top tier financial institutions and given their level of ingenuity and product applicability, we believe that Arcontech will be able to continue to expand and adapt their product suite to a large range of clients who are all more than willing to engage with Arcontech in order to simplify their data needs in a world that is pushing towards more cost-efficient business. Arcontech initially gauged our attention while screening small cap tech companies for large cash piles relative to market cap, strong returns and growing revenues that aren’t priced into the shares. Arcontech fit these criteria to a tee, with net cash currently making up c.30% of its market cap and a PEG ratio of 0.67 implying that future revenue growth is only 67% priced in. Arcontech turned profitable in 2014 and have since built on their bottom-line year on year, with the expectations that this trend will continue. We see Arcontech as a huge long-term opportunity due to the innovative and compatible nature of the business; we believe that the share price will begin to reflect this as they continue to build on their impressive client base, profitability and investor exposure.

multibagger: Good morning gsbmba99 and many thanks for your insights into this area. Our ARC share price appears to be in a holding pattern and needs a catalyst in terms of contract news it would appear to shift it to the 70s. Though discerning investors appear to be quietly increasing their stake with trades that don't move the market. Good luck :)
multibagger: Isa2020, I wouldn't read too much into it - sometimes the first 20 minutes of trading can be erratic/volatile before the froth settles in terms of price. The shares are tightly held, so can move up or down on low volumes. If you observe the share price and volume chart on the top, you will see that the shareprice upward moves are supported by big volumes and the drops are on small volumes. The market makers are trying to hoover up shares by dropping the price to shake out weaker holders/short term traders. They will continue to do this to try and panic weak holders...but at some point despite the wild price swings in share price, the MMs can't pick up further shares and then the share price will start its upwards march once again. The medium to long term trend for ARC is definitely up at the moment and the share price today movement was totally expected. We may drop another couple of pence before consolidating and hopefully move upwards on some contract award news. Good to see PDMR buying activity(recently) and options exercise today ...a no brainer really. ARC is a buy and hold for me - I am not interested in trying to make a few pennies, when there is a lot more upside gain to be had. Good luck :)
