Mginvestor...Thank you for the article links (I have not got full access to the Stockopedia article). The Nature article is a very good read and frames the type of capacity required for the mass testing of populations, which ultimately require frequent/repeat testing, but I am sure you get the picture. I would add, just for clarity, that Abbotts BionaxNOW test, is not to be confused with Abbotts Panbio lateral flow test (that I previously highlighted and which was not mentioned, but has 'already' received very strong demand), they are actually different antigen tests. It's also why there is room for many different tests, as no single company could cope with the type of volumes required!

Wan, I agree 100% with you and share your excitement about how big testing will become. Look what I found coming from the PHE - valued at £22B over the next 2 years and it can be safely assumed that vast majority of it will be for testing: hTTps://bidstats.uk/tenders/2020/W45/738328646 @mginvestor

you have no clue on the research front genius. I challenged you on mean reverting return skewness stretching back 10 years but you were simply not capable to conduct the research you are talking about. Bagman - you're filtered sport.

I will add nothing more than to say that post 854 is based on some very solid facts. And to also mention that the dividend is in the bank (so to speak), but no longer discounted in the share price. A nice signal from Mr Market ;-) Oh, and I don't believe Trellus is in the price yet...........but things are developing very nicely there too (next in-specie dividend in the making!)

I am not going to post all the details, but I can confirm that (as I have alluded to previously) that demand for new antigen tests has expanded to the degree that once again, demand has 'already' outstripped the supply. I make no excuse for using sensational language when saying (confirming) that the antigen testing market is about to explode across the globe, with mass-testing of the public being widely committed to! So, I remain particularly interested in where PrimeStore ATM will fit into all of this. But suffice to say, given that EKF have indicated that the ATM product aimed at low cost markets expected Q4, that EKF are exposed in some meaningful way to the huge demand that is only just starting to be revealed/realised. It is important to understand that PCR testing (and other tests) will still be required, which in some circumstances are also complimentary/confirmatory. Furthermore, I am of the opinion that EKF's recent antibody test distribution agreements, offers an entirely different opportunity that will also become 'increasingly' important, some of which will also be complimentary/expansionary for EKF's existing business.

Thanks James. The increased interest in diagnostics (such as your reference to David Evans intentions and indeed the rationale for Source Bioscience to list) exemplifies the fact that EKF looks set to benefit from the diagnostic revolution taking place and thus the rising importance that diagnostics will play globally.

There’s a book on equity market anomalies, such as the one you mention, written by a former US stock analyst called Leonard Zacks. It’s a very dry book but if you have a strong interest in flaws in the theory and potential ways of building them into your investment strategy then it might be worth a read.

Another company that I invest in had an agreed takeover bid this morning,so I liquidated my holdings and reinvested in EKF. For once, the share price actually rose after I invested. Generally, I believe in EMT, but AIM stocks are typically under researched and often highly illiquid. That means that the share prices are often volatile and there are commensurate investment opportunities. EKF is still relatively under the radar, but it is getting noticed. For example, I see that David Evans is launching a new fund to invest in diagnostic stocks. He is a former chairman of EKF. I think that it is a reasonable assumption that EKF will be one of the stocks that the fund invests in - assuming that it launches.

For those interested in gaining some form of understanding/overview of testing (and some of the issues e.g. adequate specimen collection and sensitivity etc), the following provides for an excellent read, including some good links - COVID-19 Testing: Where Do We Stand? — Persistent problems have kept it from fulfilling early promise, but that could change by Kristina Fiore, Director of Enterprise & Investigative Reporting, MedPage Today November 5, 2020 hTTps://www.medpagetoday.com/infectiousdisease/covid19/89508 From that article, and regardless of the test type, one can appreciate the importance in the quality of the specimen/sample, which brings me back to my interest into what degree the new ATM product improves/enables effective antigen testing. There are a lot of eyes on the Liverpool testing 'pilot' which starts today, and it will be another important proving ground for mass-population testing. In other news, large diagnostic players continue to report robust earnings that are beating analysts revised forecasts. With some also reporting that they can sell everything coronavirus related they can make and with such demand being seen as increasingly sustainable.

A wise man would not ask what you did (as I already gave you the answer but clearly you are not a quant hence are afraid to go check the numbers). So please enlighten me if I have got the above wrong and more importantly how?? PS. Your fundamentals are ALREADY in the price. Why on earth do you think you got a mind boggling +400% advance in under 6 months? Only a rookie - with no understanding how Mr Market works - would argue the share price is not overextended innit?!

Tongosti when you arrive at your current odds what numbers are you using for 2020 and 2021 for EKF for the following Sales How large due you see as the opportunity for the Covid sample testing kit EPS Balance sheet total Dividend yield Cash position Value of investments in it's 2 current quoted investments What do value do you assign to Trellus I put forward 5p eps for 2020 and 10p for 2021 if they deliver these numbers I say its 100% that this will go over go over £1 I doubt your crystal ball is big enough to see these numbers but please do enlighten us.

Clearly, the truth is not the pursuit of the blue sky crowd but here's some cold hard numbers. The odds for a very meaningful advance from here stand at 8%. 92% chance for at least a major consolidation, at this juncture. Whoever is thinking £££ at this stage unknowingly is betting on an event with an 8% chance of success only.Surely, low probability events can take place (yes the Russian roulette may also work a few times, until it doesn't) but they are hardly wise bets as any seasoned poker player will tell you. Try it long enough and one will sure will get their fingers (and toes) burned. Those who have ears, let them hear. PS. I am in pursuit of factual information not following crowd consensus. I can go long or short or avoid (which is what I am currently doing here) a situation altogether depending on what the numbers tell me.

BTG - current EPS forecasts for FY20 & FY21 are 3.25p & a decline to 1.65p respectively so agree if your figures are even remotely close this will put a rocket under the share price.
