So for all the hoopla about the ability to execute and be leaders in the field the only remaining support is the hope of a takeover. My word it sure is a sorry state that results are tainted with the implications of being as a result of cooking rather than creating or is that creative accounting. Too much damage done to the reputation and the silence is deafening. It's finished and the pie in the sky ambitions are just stuff of Alice in Wonderland

Down into takeover land price wise as now they own 100% of Kdb+ could be interest over the rest of 2018.

...they're being kept afloat by share issues and debt... To what share issues do you refer?

I think if the market did really think that or there was some foundation to those sort of thoughts the price would have collapsed much much further. I wouldn't be surprised if it's the cashflow that some people don't like, they're being kept afloat by share issues and debt, some of which effectively pays the dividend. I think they should chop the dividend, but Brian Conlon wouldn't be happy as that gives him a few million a year. I'm not completely comfortable with the cash but I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt and hoping that Kx does prove itself.

The share price drop is obviously because of more sellers (incl shorts) than buyers, but the actual share price doesn't to my mind indicate a company with major issues, at £28 it's still on pe about 35 and price to sales 3.5, that's not a company with problems. I think the valuation had simply become too rich at say £45 for a company growing revenue at about 20%.

Well tabloid or otherwise the share price suggests the company has major issues and the usual excuse is shorts. If you had more buyers than sellers, well...

In an attempt to move on from the recent tabloid journalism that regrettably has arrived on this previously peaceful BB, I attach a link of interest to anyone that may actually have bothered to read the recent half year report and is inclined to learn what KX is actually now capable of. As the author, Jonny Press of Aquaq notes - it's very exciting!https://www.aquaq.co.uk/datablog/kdb-anymap-unstructured/For those interested in the governance framework that FD follows, a read through this may bring some clarity.https://www.frc.org.uk/directors/corporate-governance-and-stewardship/uk-corporate-governance-code

I think it has something to do with the fact TT have increased their short position forcing an illiquid stock downwards. They have to buy back that stock so don't worry. As for the meeting, there was a sense of satisfaction among all the analysts ..

Anyone privy to what the analysts thought of the analysts' meeting at 12.30 on the day of results? It seems that the price rose from 33 to 35 in the morning of the 6th before the meeting but since the meeting have slid 20% from the middle of the 6th to now, 35 down to 28.

Something is rotten in FDP. Don't tell me that there is not bad news lurking. Were the books cooked?Meltdown in progress

Contrast the price action of twlo and you can only conclude the market is crazy. Twilo lost one major contract and it went from 44 to low 20s. Yesterday is rose 25 dollars to 93

For long term holders it is frustrating but nothing more. Being at a valuation it was at in April 18 and Nov 17 is not the worst scenario considering how some stocks have been hammered.. This may actually prove to be a blessing in disguise as it allows the company to prove its true value to the market and rise again in coming months. I still consider the Citigroup and Liberum Capital and Investec assessments of true value circa mid 50s to be the most realistic valuation at this moment

Going to be a long slog to recover. Damaged by smear and possible fraudulent intent without repercussions

Moorsie, simple maths, r&d costs increased by just 600k. Pull the other one.

Rhambo - it is very simple business accounting Investment in additional R&D ! Its all in the report if you took the time to read it through Also confirmation that 1,700 of the 2,400 workforce are data scientists and research engineers. So not all consultant sales people

Doubling of net debt and reduction in net cash vs 20% hike in revenues doesn't stack up, simple as.

Most detailed half or full year results I have read from FDP - seems to be intentionally addressing the areas that the shorters claimed were opaque
