No reason to be long here, I remain short, but with a tighter stop as I don't want to lose all that lovely profit :-)

And approaching another new low Query a bottom forming or a pause before continuing downwards ? The BIG question. Do the new management have the skill to turn it round ?

NT said this on 23rd April.....looks like he got his wish. "DIA: statement was a bit disappointing, however I had already reached my target and more and decided to bank my profits, making a profit of £726. Future could still be bright though and I'm already thinking of buying them back as at under 700 they have a lot of potential."

...perhaps I should have said unlikely but possible for a sale as an outcome of a strategic review as I take your point re the 'management speak'

I was the one that mentioned a sale. I'm just attuned to 'managementspeak' and "a strategic review of the business" is a common phrase to signal the possibility of a sale. Also, (and sorry to bang on about this) but the issue about burning cash looks to be closely related to "product development" (see my post 2766 on the subject) http://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=9955617&from=2766&to=2766 and now they say they are carrying out a "review of its operations, supply chain, and product development". If, as I suggested, "product development" is not an exceptional cost to be capitalised (i.e. taken out of the P&L account as they have been doing) but is necessary year-on-year expenditure to develop new products and keep at the forefront of this technology, perhaps they would be better as part of a much larger organisation that could carry such costs or had its own R&D Dept so they could take DIA's sales but cut their overhead. To a 'trade buyer' it would be worth a multiple of EBITDA.

no need to feel sorry for me I'm 7%+ up on the day but I do feel for those who've suffered as a result of today's news, as for £3 that's just a wild guess and there's no indication of any fundraising in any case, when the strategic review has been completed they may just scale back on expansion plans for now or as someone else suggested could put themselves up for sale but that's just a wild guess as well

Sorry for you guys, the bod let you down, the last update raised doubts, but was not expecting that statement. Thers obviously been a tesco moment by the last ceo. Might be a fund raise so dont rule out 300p imo.

That was the encouraging paragraph, so maybe not all doom and gloom, still holding so lets hope so.

yes I did consider that, but on the other hand with a new chief exec just appointed it could be a case of get all the bad news out in one go, from your link: "Mr Sutsko may also have decided to do a ‘kitchen sink’ update. By getting all the bad news out at the start of his tenure, he should improve his chances of delivering growth and a rising share price from now on."

Diku....So true....had over 400% at one time, greed greed greed, I must stop being so greedy. Brought in under £2 when NT was trumpeting this company, wonder what he thinks now. This is what happens when you have high PE and very little liquidity few sells hit the share price hard, it not all back news. hTTps://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2015/06/10/should-you-buy-or-sell-dialight-plc-after-falling-by-a-third-today/ You know what they say about profit warnings they come in !!!!!!!!!!

Morale of the story is anybody who bought around 300p should have sold any price above 1000p....buy and hold forever is out of window....

This was on my watchlist as Faraday are tipping it as a buy. Glad I didn't take a stake!

73% will do nicely; I think I am fortunate that I didn't buy back in earlier though.

Many shareholders with stop loss positions will be dismayed when they loose their holdings cheap, 30% drop will have wiped most out....

Bounty...at least all the brokers are issuing buy rates with 70% upside...I'm waiting now until results are released see what damage there is. Still holding a few. hTTp://www.directorstalkinterviews.com/dialight-plc-73-1-potential-upside-indicated-by-canaccord-genuity/412666271

I wouldn't disagree with that jeffian but that possibility could also offer a decent return from this level. beeezzz I understand your sentiment but with the strategic review things may change for the better, ...on the other hand I could be wrong of course ...only time will tell! I don't think a cash call would be received well by current investors who have just taken this hit if aimed at them.

Well we could see a cash call, only 30m shares in issue, not checked if new shorts have been placed. They have over stretched themselves increasing production facilities all around the world which has obviously back fired with demand dropping left with infantry. bountyhunter....... I'd be wary of this management now, they seem to have taken their eye off the ball, whether they are fit and proper is up for debate.

Not sure about that, bountyhunter. In my experience, a "strategic review" is often managementspeak for 'should we put ourselves up for sale?'.

back in this morning having got out ages ago; good product huge market, in the long run drop overdone imho fwiw! I'm relying on management sorting out cash flow post strategic review. "The Board remains convinced of the longer term prospects for the Group and it expects to update the market with the findings of this review in the autumn."

Who, me? Just watch the cash, mate. It's been disappearing at a rate of knots while the company was 'profitable'. I imagine it'll be worse now.

Yep very disappointing. Management really need to take a good look at where this company is going, the market is huge and they are not taking advantage of that, another British company under performing. More by luck than judgement I off loaded 2/3 of my holding a couple weeks ago @747p wish I'd sold the lot, although still in profit. I'll wait for results to see how to play this one. Come on Jeff give us your insight I need cheering up.
