|Charts don't tell you anything. If you believe in technical analysis I have some magic beans I'd like to sell you.|
|So is the chart right?|
|Just a further article on the India DCB announcement
|I bought at 1.21 this morning - not bad for 1 day profit. Not that I'm selling, but it shows how good this stock is for buying dips. If anything it's made me fonder of the low-liquidity here that's giving all this juicy drama to trade on. Next sign of a dip I may attempt a short-close-long to ride the wave. Lot of money to be made with this stock!|
|I reckon so.|
|Looks like the boys in blue have arrived back on the scene
Anyone want to call a blue finish|
|Astute points. So really, a share which is so easily dramatically moved by trading activity (due to its small free float) is an extremely high risk, high gain type of investment for shorting. You could make or lose a fortune. But for long term holders, it's a fantastic investment if you can just keep your cool on these dips. Us LTHs will keep reminding everyone on here and LSE - just a tiny volume of trades can cause what deceptively look like price collapses. Take the Buffet approach and take comfort in solid fundamentals and don't chase the ticker.|
|Well put Simon
Whilst Bango may from a distance look like a good short and that due to profit taking may appear justified anybody holding a short position is taking a huge risk as there are several areas of possible good news which would send the share price into orbit especially with the small free float. These being
- confirmation of EUS on or above market expectations
- M&A of a competitor bring additional EUS as with BilltoMobile
- confirmation of what is happening with Amazon or Samsung
- confirmation of physical goods via the Bango platform
- whilst I think unlikely an Apple DCB integration
- official launch / take up of the so called other payment methods
- etc etc etc
Also if any one of the existing II's decided to increase their holding or decided to move the share price up they are fully aware of how little is required to increase / support the share price|
|Oh dear the chart is right|
Yes I saw that and also the Bango jobs page looking for 9 new positions indicates things are ramping up.
In relation to what is happening with Samsung and Amazon I'm convinced this is not just about App Store & DCB but something far bigger|
Clearly a lot going on with the biggest names including Amazon and Samsung|
|Bango have never been big in Europe as far as I csn see. Its other markets like India and emerging countries with higher populations where the big money will be made.|
|To be fair I have sent emails in the past ( nothing for several years now)and they did respond to each one of them although with answers that were e a bit wooly in that they can only announce to the market what they are allowed by their partners and can not say anything in the reply that is not already available in the market.
As previously posted I'm starting to think DCB may not be the key driver for EUS with Bango in the coming years with the increasing mention of other payments systems which will still hopefully pass through the Bango platform
Hay ho looks like we will need to wait until the next update to see how things are going, not long now, July I think|
|Well I think they can be afforded some slack given soaring activations and healthy numbers, but your point is taken. Have you written to the board? I often write to directors of my AIM companies and have found it often quite fruitful.|
|Good Point Simon
I'm not sure W10 is a great revenue stream but I did listen to a webinar last year in which Anil stated they had just had their best month with revenue from Xbox which I think is the money earner if there is to be one with MS as I doubt W10 will be a luxury one can afford for many people for years to come.
The point I'm making is why do Bango keep promising the market things are going to happen with MS W10 then nothing happens, surely this has the potential to cast doubt in anything they say and damage their reputation.|
|Thanks Lenjes, as usual fantastic detailed posts, much appreciated. Are we sure MS DCB routes are significant revenue sources? Not that I don't think they'd be nice to have, but to be clear this isn't on the scale of Bango's revenue streams from Google Play, Amazon apps etc. Do we have any idea what's actually at stake here? I guess people buy Xbox games and DLC, but doesn't feel like a giant market.|
|To make my point to date MS have activated 16 DCB routes with Windows 10 / Xbox (excluding legacy activations ) with Boku having activated 9 of these and Bango only 5 so not good progress after 15 months. Who the Austria activation was with is still to be confirmed and I'm not sure about 3UK
Austria Hutchison 3G Austria ???
Finland DNA, Bango Elisa Bango
France Orange Boku
Germany O2 Boku
Hungary Telenor Bango
Italy Wind Boku
Norway Telenor Bango
Poland Orange Boku
Russia Beeline Boku
Sweden Telenor Bango
Switzerland Swisscom Boku
Turkey Turkcell Boku
United States Sprint Boku
United Kingdom O2, Boku 3 UK ???|
|Further to the update on the MS DCB web page on 7th April and my post the following day it looks like the Windows 10 Turkcel DCB activation went to our old mates Boku.
Its been almost 15 months ( 5th Jan 2016 )since Bango made the fanfare of the deal with MS and expected rollout of multiple activations starting in the same month and then further stated the same with a global MNO deal in the September interim report yet nothing appears to happen ( with the exception of Telenor). The attached and the updates on the MS DCB web page clearly indicate this is not Bango limiting announcement what they are up to with activations with MS10 / Xbox this is clear evidence that nothing is happening in the Bango camp in this respect.
Good news is that MS are still on the uptake with DCB, the bad news its just not with Bango at the moment.
Despite the above which is frustrating till a good hold for me also.
|Its always a rollercoaster ride with Bango and we get regular share price collapses for no reason at all. It would be good to trade it but problem is getting back in again.|
|Thank you simonsaid point taken|
|If you're just using charts then no wonder you came to such a strange conclusion. Read some analysis of the company itself (Investors Chronicle, Proactive Investors etc). Technical analysis/chartism is always sketchy, but with AIM stocks it's truly utterly useless.
Also, if you're using data to make observations, you should have seen the small free float/share pool for this stock which means small imbalances in trades can cause large share price changes when expressed in % terms.
Apologies for any impoliteness, but we get this a lot on AIM boards - technical analysis junkies who know nothing about the companies they talk about making 'predictions' that betray a total lack of knowledge on the company on which the investor is speculating. They cause unwarranted panic for no more reason than they've 'identified a double-cross retracing Tesla curve pattern with a double twist entering its third trimester double-spike regression' etc etc.|
|Still a hold for me. What's changed?|
|Simonsaid I'm an interested observer and my comment is based on the chart|
