At a time of market recovery it's clear management is out of its depth. Now it's only a matter of time until the bells will toll. Competition and former employees will emerge with a better offering TW has been proven correct

swiss paul: congratulations on your long, this one remains a source of pain for me. Didn't think that these were the results that are required for a company on this rating but I'll let you longs enjoy your day before I get my (cold) watering can out. Asagi (short FDP)

I think there was a leaky ship but the FCA wont bother - price movement on the up before what could have been a bad show. I still hold - and have added Asagi - can you see this dropping by 50% plus its over your 'ouch' at £27!

Looking really good - if it can bust through £31 this should motor. Given the positive vaccine news around the globe I wouldn't want to be short this (or anything at the moment)

last time I looked, consensus is for an EPS decline in 2021. the dividend has been cancelled and graduate intake is under 'deferral'. There is debt, slightly higher than ADJUSTED EBITDA. How is this on a P/E of more than 15? Asagi (short FDP)

At 55 times earnings this stock is on an absurd rating. Whoever is buying ahead of next week's results needs their head examining.

Asagi in the words of Linda lovelace - 1 swallow does not make a summer. I would not put the shirt on daily movements - the trend if your friend. Keep safe - and thanks for your honsety - have a rec

Hi swiss paul, Taking that to mean the price that I would close at tomorrow if you offered it me? 1,500p. I'd stay short at 1,501p and obviously close at 1,499p or lower. As for where I would throw in the towel and give it up as a bad job, I dunno, 2,700p? Thursday's close does not bode well for next week's action, to my mind. GLA. Asagi (short FDP)

trading statement from the company this morning: hTTps://www.investegate.co.uk/first-derivatives--fdp-/rns/trading-statement/202004090700032822J/ expects to report a financial performance in line with company-compiled consensus forecasts of £241m of revenue and £46m of adjusted EBITDA. Net debt at the period end was £50m, which was better than the consensus forecast of £56m. all going well at the business: we have seen no financial impact from the effects of COVID-19. All our services delivery is now being conducted remotely, with no impact on revenue. In our managed services and consulting business the services that we provided prior to COVID-19 are now being delivered remotely with utilisation rates in March 2020 remaining in line with the prior month. but in the near-term there will be a lengthening of software sales cycles and suspending non-essential business travel and short-term deferral of the summer graduate intake and the Board will not recommend a final dividend in respect of the year to 29 February 2020 it seems a little surprising that the dividend is not happening this year given claims that all is hunky dory?

Lucien Miers writes about First Derivatives on shareprophets today. I infer that he things that the shares are FOUR times the price that they should be. Last year, we had a trading statement on April 18th. I'm inclined to think that they are leaving it very late. The market is affording this one a lot of benefit of the doubt. Asagi (short FDP)

one of the few companies still yet to make some kind of Covid-19 announcement. Indeed, to my knowledge, we have had no word on trading since November 5th. Asagi (short FDP)

I see this stock is trading on an earnings multiple of 44 times. That can't be right. Something rotten in the state of Denmark? Was it Rosencrantz or Guildenstern who said that? I can't remember.

It a very simple point. FDP state it software revenue is 60% of total. A second report states it is 30% of total. Who has made a mistake?

The revenues are restated by a huge amount. A change of from30 to 60% is huge and either points to ineptness or worse by the management or a mistake by the person sending the note How can this be explained. It is items like this that make investment risky. And 5hey keep cropp8ng up. 30% of FDP revenues isn’t a small amount of money.

FD (AIM: FDP.L, ESM: FDP.I) announces that it has been selected by a leading global oilfield services company for the use of Kx technology to provide operational intelligence for their customers' oil and gas field assets. This contract, awarded after a thorough technology evaluation by the client, extends the range of Kx use cases within the energy market and showcases the ability of Kx to deliver actionable insights at the edge. The flexibility and open nature of the Kx platform will enable new processes and data-intensive analytics to be added as required both in the field and centrally. Using Kx technology to deliver big data levels of analytic capability to the edge, where compute resources are limited, will enable the client to increase efficiency. This represents a new use case for Kx, which the client expects to generate a high return on investment and should be of interest across the broader energy and industrial IoT markets. Seamus Keating, Chief Executive Officer, FD commented: "Making decisions at the time and place where action is required can deliver major operational efficiencies. We believe Kx is the only technology capable of delivering this solution, enabling decision-making in real-time on vast volumes of data. As organisations increasingly look to drive action, not just reports from the data they generate, Kx stands out for its high performance and ability to operate at the edge."
