We're on the move and I'm hearing whispers of being shortlisted for a big NHS contract. Mind you, shortlisted is one thing, winning is another as I know to my cost in other contract-driven shares. Still, something's moving the price on a quiet day and with recent Director share buying it's not beyond the bounds of possibility............ Fingers Xed, eh, Orange1?! Regards, Ian

More director/insider buying - got to be another bullish straw in the wind: Today's announcement: The Board of Clinical Computing PLC (the "Company") was informed on 1 October 2004 that Howard Kitchner, Chairman of the Company, had bought 60,000 ordinary shares of 5 pence each ("Ordinary Shares") in the Company at a price of 26 pence. The transaction took place on 30 September 2004, following which Mr Kitchner had a total shareholding of 1,673,004 Ordinary Shares representing 5.31 per cent. of the Company's issued share capital. The Board was also informed on 1 October 2004 that David Altschuler, a connected person with Mr Kitchner, had bought 60,000 Ordinary Shares at a price of 26 pence. The transaction took place on 30 September 2004, following which Mr Althsculer had a total shareholding of 1,673,004 Ordinary Shares, representing 5.02 per cent. of the Company's issued share capital.

Still the budgie is now happy, Ian - that must count for something. Mind you with the money you spent on these blasted shares you could probably have bought it a golden cage! Orange

No, Orange1, I'm even more of a chump than that - I'm the one that buys in the market after the Placing when the shares are buzzing well over 40p in anticipation of all those promises coming good! Doh! 8-) REgards, Ian

Yes you're right it was at the same time as the placing , as I don't own them now , I soon forget , I sold the same time as the price went up and saw my exit . I totally mistrust Director Statements and for good reason too !!! I've changed my investment strategy over the years from long term ( Mugs game I reckon ) to In and Out !!! I'd rather it wasn;t like that but Shareholders have had an incredible 'Mugging' over the last 5 years and I can't believe it will continue ... Wish all the best to you holders of this stock , If I heard of any good news I may be tempted to buy in at this level or lower. Can't see them getting any more funding anyway !! They are on there own now I reckon !

You got me there Nick. Can't see any evidence of good news being released before last year's placing and open offer. Maybe you've got the wrong company. As a CLC holder you tend to remember the good news! If you mean that they talked about potential contracts as part of the fund raising process then that is a different matter. All companies who raise money have to try and paint a rosy picture for the future otherwise who in their right minds would stump up the money? Not Ian, that's for sure!

hi , just been reading your posts with interest as I used to own Clinical Computing , I sold them when they gave out positive news on potential big deals just prior to raising money last year .... I'm always suspicious of good news followed by Money Grabbing 'Rights'by companies ... I must admit I would be tempted to hold on to them if i still had them , seems a little late to jump ship ... Shareholders should email the company and voice their concerns and perhaps ask the Directors to return some of the High Wages back to the Rightful Owners of that Capital .... The best of luck in your trades !! Be wary next time you hear good news from a company especially when their cash is running out !! You'll know what to do !!

chessman2 You are clearly not alone in your thoughts: 100k bought at 26p this pm and Investec moving onto the bid for the first time in quite a while. Either they are looking to acquire shares for that buyer or have had a chat with the company (they are the house brokers) and liked what they heard so much that they decided to buy for themselves and/or their clients.

Orange, unfortunately I am with you on this one and have kept it in my bottom recovery draw for some time now!! I know that sooner or later it will turn into a frog and come good.IMHO it is is very good value at the present price!!

> jeffian I just can't believe that you ever had these in your Growth draw! They have been a recovery stock since .... well basically since they listed - pumped up on the back of one juicy contract which was never repeated. I was a holder then and am still a holder now. I am not going to get excited about another profit warning or licence fees of a mere 118k in the last 6 months! You can't blame CLC if their pesky customers buy the software and then forget to get round to implementing it. ;-) We die hard CLC holders are made of stearner stuff. It's to the future that we look and the potential of what tomorrow may bring. And of course potential there is: 2 new contracts signed in Feb, 3 new announced in June and now another 2 in September. 21 open bids (up from 16). New management brought in. And for what it's worth: I believe the outperforming CF Techinvest Technology Fund topped up in July. There is also a buyer in the market in the moment. The run up in the price prior to the results and the tick up today is evidence of that. (The 50k at 24p today was a purchase I believe). All is not lost. The promised land is in sight. (as ever!)

I think that's absolutely right, richjp, but managements need to understand that the market is happy to take a view on 'speculative' stocks but it is very unforgiving if it feels it has been taken for a ride along the way. Remember, it's hardly a year since this company raised fresh (life-saving?) capital at 40p per share at which point it was briefing institutions about deals 'in the bag' the minute the company's future was secured by a fresh injection of capital. Within a matter of months it issued a Trading Statement warning of contract delays and producing disappointing results, a pattern now being repeated in the latest results. I agree with you about the potential and hold as there seems to be some sort of floor at these levels but, even if the promised profits arrive, it may take a while to regain the trust of institutions. Regards, Ian

markycrispy, The most recent Techinvest comment, pre results obviously, said that CLC remains an "attractive speculative buy". They certainly pointed out that it is speculative. I have been involved in selling software to the NHS myself and the fact is that public sector procurement procedures are horribly formal and long winded, meaning that sales cycles can be extremely drawn out. Personally I think the process benefits neither buyer or seller but that is another story. The good news is that once you have been through this process and have some reference sites then other customers will follow. The benefit to a company like CLC is that once you have a working software package, future sales are made at a very high gross margin. The challenge for CLC is to generate enough revenue in the short term while longer term sales come through. If they can do that then future profitablity could be dramatic. That is why I believe Techinvest described them as an attractive speculation. I believe that the future for software companies is to become leaders in niche markets, although some of those niches can be substantial particularly for smaller companies. I bought a year ago and am down at present but I will continue to hold.

jeffian - I cant believe these were a tip from my trusted Techinvest newsletter.They really should have known better! Let's hope for a recovery. At least I didn't have my shirt on these.Just about 3% of my portfolio so wont be down the benefit office just yet. I can't even bring myself to ramp as a holder.Nothing springs to mind that is positive.

O1, Back from hols now and see that CLC reporting interims on 14 Sept. If they're as 'leaky' as you suggest (post 111), it looks worryingly as if there's not much good news floating around. Be interesting to see if there's any speculative price movement in the run-up to the results. Regards, Ian

LOL, O1! I'm rather hoping they'll both come good for me, but I'll sleep a bit easier with the WOC - at least there is visibility of earnings. With CLC it's going to be a case of 'feast or famine', I think, which means that you'll either be savouring your winnings or shivering without a shirt on your back! 8-) Regards, Ian

Ian Well after holding on for 10 years, I'm hardly likely to give up now! I've always found that CLC has been a bit leaky as far as news is concerned, so I'm viewing recent develoments including the director buys as positives. By the way have you informed your broker about my proposed bet (see WOC thread)? I'm rather looking forward to sipping my pot of Whittards tea come the cold months of winter! Regards Orange1

Hmmmmm....! Looking quite perky. With the impending interims, is this a case of 'buy the rumour; sell the fact' or has someone got wind of a positive update on new contract wins? Off on me hols, so probably won't be in a position to find out! Regards, Ian

Oooerrr....the excitement will kill me (it's moved again)!! You still hanging on in there, Orange1? Regards, Ian (Edit: I see that last year's interims were published 6/8/03. Assuming they come out around the same time this year, maybe there is some good news in the wind. I certainly hope so!)
