suneday: Yep. Your posting is. As to share price, like every other.
chimers: Acting in concert to artificially support a share price ? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I wonder .................? Nahhhhhhh surely not ?
suneday: Try your hand with this then Sam - a chance to mock the Motley Fool - though I recommend the content the way it's going, what with recent RNSs and all ( article courtesy of LSE) Motley article fast growing CTPToday 13:392 FAST-GROWING STOCKS YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO IGNORE 'With the General Election and Brexit being two major risks for UK investors, finding shares with upbeat growth prospects could become more challenging. Although June's election may appear to be a foregone conclusion and Brexit talks may yield a favourable deal for the UK and EU, the risks of differing outcomes remain. Therefore, it may be prudent to buy strong growth shares which also offer a wide margin of safety, given the risks which investors face. Growth at a reasonable price Also offering upside potential over the medium term is software and managed services provider Castleton Technology(LSE: CTP). Although its shares have already risen 13% since the start of the year, they continue to trade on a relatively enticing valuation. For example, they have a P/E ratio of 16.8 and yet are forecast to record a rise in earnings of 20% in the next financial year. This puts them on a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of just 0.8, which indicates that more capital growth could lie ahead. Clearly, 2017 could be a pivotal year for the company. It has been loss-making in each of the last four years and if it can return a black bottom line this year, its share price could rise. Investor sentiment may pick up in the short term in anticipation of its improving finances. And according to its most recent update, cash flow has been better than expected. This could help to reduce the company's net debt, which may mean it offers an increasingly sustainable growth outlook.' The Fool seems to have missed Ctp just moved into black at half year. Will have been well in by 31st. March last, and even further ahead by end July results time, what with integration and all that done.
soultrading: It lost a little ground over the last two days but is up over all. Lets not forget that. It made an astonishing spike on the news that the board and others have added further skin in the game. Their buying and a rush to get into this pushed the price high very quick. Which is great when Directors buy - you buy too. It is normal for a share price to drop back a little before moving forward again. Nothing goes up in a straight line and often share prices take a breather before continuing up. That's all that happened. The share price failed to make a new low, it did make a six-month high and then broke out of the down trend. This is a great sign and in my view has started its new cycle. It is cheap and showing real promise. Some talk of twitter.. Although I like seeing tweets with packed out halls of people during their presentation today and I like hearing the 'great day' stuff and seeing new housing associations start following CTP. I tend to think a read through the RNS is better suited to finding out about the company, where it is going and whether you should add it to your portfolio. I look forward to the trading update and any news from the company.
chimers: When in doubt ALWAYS check the share price. This share price is weak and about to topple over again. They are tip toeing around trying to settle positions without waking it up because when it wakes up it always cries for mama and tanks.
chimers: Gosh who woulda thought eh............... LONDON (Alliance News) - Oxford Technology Management reported Wednesday a reduction in net asset value across all four of its London-listed venture capital funds in the first half of their financial years. Oxford Technology VCT PLC reported its NAV per share reduced to 59.7 pence from 61.2p in the six months to August 31, as the fund's net assets dropped to GBP3.2 million at the end of the period, down from GBP3.3 million at February 29. The fund reported a total NAV return per share of 113.7p in the six month period. The share price of the fund slipped to 38.0p at August 31 from 40.5p at February 29. Shares in Oxford Technology VCT were untraded at 42.87p Wednesday. Chairman Alex Starling noted over 85% of Oxford Technology VCT's net asset value is bound up in holdings in private company Select Technology Ltd and AIM-listed biotechnology company Scancell Holdings PLC. Starling said recent changes to qualification conditions for being a venture capital trust will not be an issue for the fund as it is not looking to invest in any new companies. Oxford Technology 2 VCT PLC reported its NAV per share dipped to 28.0p from 28.2p over the six months to August 31, with net assets broadly flat at GBP1.9 million. Total NAV return per share in the fund was 41.0p. The share price of Oxford Technology 2 rose to 22.0p at August 31 from 20.0p at February 29. Shares in Oxford Technology VCT 2 were untraded at 18.43p Wednesday. Oxford Technology VCT 3 PLC's NAV per share fell to 87.3p from 101.6p over the six months to August 31, as net assets declined to GBP5.9 million from GBP6.9 million. The fund produced a total NAV return per share for the period of 119.3p. The share price of Oxford Technology 3 fell to 57.5p at August 31 from 62.5p at February 29. Shares in Oxford Technology VCT 3 were untraded at 50.00p Wednesday. Oxford Technology VCT 4 PLC reported its NAV per share declined slightly to 66.5p from 66.8p over the six months to August 31, with net assets broadly flat at GBP7.7 million. The fund's total NAV return per share for the period was 103.5p. The share price of Oxford Technology 4 fell to 47.0p at August 31 from 52.0p at February 29. Shares in Oxford Technology VCT 4 were untraded at 45.0p Wednesday. Oxford Technology VCT 4 Chairman David Livesley noted minor rises in the value of some of the fund's portfolio companies had been more than offset by a fall in the share price of Castleton Technology PLC over the period
1hopefultrader: FOR THOSE THAT MISSED IT Over the last couple of months, I have highlighted the potential for taking a closer look at stocks in and around the construction space, on the back of weaker market sentiment. While two of the more recent subjects in the shape of Ibstock and Polypipe have seen their share prices perk up on the back of positive results, one former and previously successful subject from this column has seen its share price flat line, despite announcing in-line full year numbers just last week. This arguably suggests that the company in question which possesses growth credentials may be worthy of closer scrutiny. Although Castleton Technology is no developer across the housing sector, it is nevertheless carving out its own space through a revenue building software technology operation that serves the growing social housing market. The company, which is effectively a buy-and-build operation headed by CEO Ian Smith, has positioned itself well in a market that is not only buoyant but offers extensive future growth opportunities with a welcome back-up via a strong element of recurring revenue. Over the last couple of years, Castleton has made a number of strategic acquisitions which are exemplified by last year's purchases in the form of Brix, Impact and Kypera. These additions should collectively further support the boards goal of assisting the group in becoming the expert and preferred choice for both social housing providers, alongside those within the commercial and more wider public sector arena. Within a now much extended but very much complimentary group, Castleton provides extensive management and support solutions that enables its clients to control, improve its services and keep costs down, while also providing a service that supports best management of their own own infrastructure. Despite the space being somewhat fragmented where numerous smaller operators compete with a few larger operators such as Northgate and Capita, Castleton is the only player with a completely integrated ERP (enterprise resource planning system) for both existing and would-be customers. This sees the operation providing a suite mix of business-management software applications that enables organisations and housing providers to collect and store data, whilst also managing and executing on all their activities and requirements. Although the UK along with Ireland is very much the focal point for Castleton and continues to provide for extensive growth opportunities, the company is already active further afield with operations now established in both Australia and New Zealand. Additionally, in continental Europe it has cemented a reseller channel in the Netherlands which should provide for further openings and potential to scale up its business in what is a ready-made market for its wares. At present, Castleton's shares stand at 73.5p which, although some way off the 90p high already achieved over the last year, arguably looks up with events – particularly with EPS of 4p pencilled in for next year seeing the stock trading on a forward PER of 18. However, as with many such stocks, investors are often happy to pay more for tomorrow's growth prospects, particularly when specific markets offer potentially significant returns. Regarding its target market and the buy-build operation, CEO Smith, a former Cable & Wireless and Cisco man boasts a wealth of experience across the technology space and has already made his mark with such previous strategies which came to the market. As such, that should provide for a further degree of confidence for those already invested, or for anyone eyeing up the company as a potential share to hold in a wider based portfolio. Admittedly, free cash flow over the last year has been under pressure and didn't register a positive performance last year, but that was very much down to integrating the various and extensive acquisitions which had been made in a short period and the related incurred costs alongside a managing of working capital on an increased order book. Importantly, this picture is now expected to see significant improvement as the bedding in process has largely been completed resulting in broker FinnCap forecasting a cash flow yield of 4.5% and 6.9% respectively over the next two years, which should also see improved adjusted pre-tax profits of £3.6m and £4.4m. Recurring revenue, which is often a constant theme for companies across the field, is already standing at an impressive 58% which underpins both current forecasts and prospects going forward, providing a firm grounding for additional wins to the group. And, with government bodies such as the Homes and Community Agency as recently as last year citing some 1.8m UK households being on lists for social housing, such a further highlighting for the extensive need of new homes explains the longer term attractions at Castleton. Both managing the existing inadequate housing situation along with meeting the needs and requirements for the future plays well into the hands of the company, which already boasts a third of all UK housing associations as clients. This surely suggests the company is very well placed to make further progress on both its earnings and level of profitability in the coming years which could result in the share price trekking northwards once again to FinnCap's current 90p target price. *Follow Martin on Twitter @private_punter Read more at hxxp://
king kong dong: Ayo Mr C !! Give me the CTP share price graph (mainly up) ratha than BHRD anydays (mostly down)
multibagger: Yes LM you are right ! I did look up the CTP website a few weeks ago for RNS releases and they appear monthly and usually in the first week to 10 days. I guess the CTP team know the importance of keeping the newsflow up as they part pay the Directors of acquired companies in CTP shares. So keeping the CTP share price at a decent level is in everyone's interest. Makes it attractive for Directors in the companies approached to make a decision as the CTP share price chart and team derisks it for them ! I feel very confident about the CTP prospects and the revenue generation is quite staggering - can't wait for the updates and results (though they seem far away for now). Been adding but not in the numbers that I could do earlier...
hulk2004: Lol, does not quite work like that these days! Anyhow a rising ctp share price I am happy with, mxcp is no concern of mine!
