angel333: Hi Fudge, I totally agree - we received 6 solid positive RNS's in August alone and yet the share price fell. The key here, and I believe has been for a while, is can these deals and partnerships deliver significant revenues? I would argue that the market do not yet believe the story? For me, the only RNS we need from the company at this time is around revenue generation for Q3 (known by Bids) and Q4 forecast based on contracts already in place. Without any confidence of the company hitting their 2019 target the share price will continue to drift.

global nomad: Angel, I am and continue to be a staunch supporter and expect that in a few months I will have forgotten my concerns. I think 'concerned' is perhaps over stating it... All the signs from the business side are fantastic and going strongly in the right direction, I am looking for the signs that the share price will follow and that will only come with demand for shares - that is what I cannot see. There are lots of great reasons to invest here but what we all need for our investment to be a successful (as opposed to the company) is for other investors to think the same and put there money in...... I have an overweight part of my portfolio here and a holding which is equivalent currently to half the value of my home so I think it is reasonable at this stage to be asking questions. MAcro situation in the UK/EU/globally is making investors cautious, the Woodford collapse is making UK (retail) investors particularly cautious so I get the contextual effect. in summary - not concerned about the company or it's business at all, noting the share price drift and looking for a reversal.

angel333: It is interesting watching the board of late. I feel that some of the staunch supporters are starting to feel concerned at the lack of share price movement.... It was just the 7th of June that the share price traded at 40p and above - an intra day high of over 41p... So, at 20.5p (a low of just last week) is a 50% fall from it's previous highest point. So, should we be concerned?

global nomad: would be good to see a close above 25 in the next days and then we still need to move above 29/30 to break the down channel we have been in since early June. As much as we may think we aren't subject to charting, we are subject to sentiment and there will be plenty of people watching who can only see a share price in consistent decline and will hold off investing - we need buying /demand side pressure if we want the price to rise...the news and the story does a lot but a rising share price will do a lot more.

roleybirkin: Aidan Your day 'Share price is of no concern to anyone'... I am fine that you may feel that way, but i don't and i am sure there are many that will watch and have some concern with a share price that keeps falling? The positive for me is that whilst Bids is at the lower end of its trading range,it has yet to break out.... Fall through the 26p level early next week and a new range will be established.

miketurnermk: The speculation that H1 will potentially have poor results has already been factored in the current share price IMO. It's the reason the share price didn't re-rate as high as we would have liked on the Unreal Engine RNS, Pubguard Acquisition RNS or the Trade Desk deal RNS. I for one don't expect the H1 results to be amazing and that's what is holding back the price, fairly right now IMO. Whilst the share price may fall a little on the release of the H1 numbers I don't expect a large fall but I do expect it to be countered with another amazingly positive RNS to either sustain the share price or send it soaring. We shall see

lauders: As it is fun I will go with 48p. When you take into account the talent pool that is being put in place here (see below and previous post to key players at BIDS) you can see that the potential is great just needs the highlighted parts below to fall into place too or someone much bigger decide to take out BIDS first as per Grapeshot. The gaming industry is almost on a par with Hollywood, with the largest selling game, GTA-V hitting $2.2bn in worldwide sales compared with the largest worldwide grossing movie, Avatar which generated $2.7bn at the box office. Note, that doesn’t include DVD, blue ray sales or broadcasting income, but you get the picture; the potential revenues that could be generated from in-game advertising are huge, particularly when you consider the potential of virtual reality moving forward. At the current share price of 31p, Bidstack is valued at around £75m. That’s a plentiful valuation for a company without a clear view of revenue numbers, but if Bidstack can successfully build and retain a first mover advantage in this new branch of the sector, it could prove to be justified. The company appears to be doing everything it can to give it the best chance, having already made a number of high-profile appointments boasting senior experience at companies like Disney, Spotify, and Sega. Today Bidstack has announced it has appointed Derek Wise as a Non-Executive Director. Derek is a highly experienced software technologist who was previously the Chief Technology Officer of Grapeshot. At the firm, David took over software development, product, support and operations globally to reorganize and grow the group. Within 12 months of him joining, Grapeshot’s revenues grew by 160pc and the team expanded from 120 to over 250 personnel. Bidstack highlights that David was responsible for pitching Grapeshot to Oracle who subsequently acquired Grapeshot in August 2018 for an estimated $400m. Clear visible revenue growth is essential if Bidstack is to swiftly justify and build on its current valuation and this appointment certainly appears to be targeting that goal. James Draper, CEO of Bidstack, commented, “Given the attractiveness of our technical offering we have been looking to add a Board member who has had experience of building and scaling borderless enterprise technology which has then been acquired by a major Silicon Valley player. “Derek’s technical background at the highest level of gaming, coupled with his intimate knowledge of the contextual understanding of data, is a perfect blend for us and his work as CTO of Grapeshot eventually led to the its acquisition by Oracle. “Derek has already been a fantastic sounding wall for our management team and I’m sure that his insight will help Bidstack to accelerate our growth further over the coming years.” Https://www.valuethemarkets.com/2019/07/02/bidstack-looks-to-facilitate-the-scaling-up-of-operations-with-new-addition-to-board-bids/

hamidahamida: Bidstack Group (LSE:BIDS) has been one of the darlings of AIM so far this year, enjoying a meteoric rise from around 4.5p in January to an intraday high of 42p last month. And it's no wonder why; blending unobtrusive adverts into video games is set to revolutionise the gaming industry.Just as services such as Spotify utilise a combination of subscription and advertising to generate revenues, it's logical video games should incorporate in-game advertising. The fact an advert could be anything from a virtual billboard in an open-world game to a video banner by the edge of the pitch in a football match simulation makes it possible to place targeted adverts in front of players with no effect on gameplay.Gamers have played online for some time, but like music and video entertainment before it, the future of video game delivery is streaming and Bidstack is also focussing on this relatively new shift for the industry.The gaming industry is almost on a par with Hollywood, with the largest selling game, GTA-V hitting $2.2bn in worldwide sales compared with the largest worldwide grossing movie, Avatar which generated $2.7bn at the box office.

arhaych: Article is behind a paywall (well, registration...) so I've copied and pasted below: I don’t generally invest in earlier stage tech companies due to the risk of failure, but I have been following the Bidstack Group (BIDS) story with interest. I’m fully aware that early stage companies in this sector often trade at a large premium to their valuation on paper, as the value is all about future potential and growth and there are examples out there of outfits that started out as small companies before seeing their technology really take off and are now worth a fortune. But this is rare and far more fail and ultimately end up worthless. It is still far too early to tell which category Bidstack will ultimately end up in, but I do believe that an awful lot of future potential is now being priced into a market valuation of more than £63 million, and I’d be very wary of putting money in at such a racey valuation. It is going to have to perform exceptionally well to show that it can grow into that, let alone being worth more and therefore providing upside for investors coming onboard now. Basically, Bidstack owns technology which enables in-game advertising and it already has tie-ups with some of the big names in the gaming industry, but it still needs to prove that it can make the revenue model work and grow at a sufficient rate. I would also be concerned about competition springing up from other companies developing their own technology to provide a similar service – or even the gaming companies eventually cutting out the middle man and directly tapping into this source of revenue. Bidstack has only been listed on AIM for a short period of time, following a reverse takeover last September when it also raised £3.5 million at a share price of 6p, and it doesn’t exactly have the greatest history. Prior to renaming itself Kin Group in May 2017, it was known as Fitbug, which was a company that I was bearish on and its fitness tracking device ultimately failed and the share price collapsed. To be fair, Bidstack CEO James Draper, who owns more than 17% of the shares, and his team weren’t involved in the Fitbug fiasco, but it does serve of a reminder of how quickly the value of these types of outfits can drop if things do go wrong. There is little point looking at the financials as, as you would expect for a company of this type, at this stage they show a hefty net loss, although a significant chunk of that is as a result of the acquisition. The figures over the next couple of years will give a far better indication of whether or not the company is achieving the level of growth that is needed to support its valuation and further upside potential. Recently it raised £5 million at a price of 12.5p and since then the share price has rocketed up to more than 26p, but I would expect that some of the placees will soon be looking to cash in on a profit of more than 100%. The shares currently have momentum behind it and the price may go higher in the absence of any news that is perceived as negative, but I can’t see any value in buying at the 26p area and would suggest that the risk versus reward isn’t in your favour at this price point, so for me it is a sell/avoid until such point as it can show that it is likely to justify such a high valuation.
