flybyknight: Over correction go to 13 or so Issue with share price so low is people to stay Company has a history of employ with options as part of salary Director buys showing hope would be good
badger36: Moorsie. Your evaluation is worth what? Since you suggest it's bull about fraud Mr Market has called it out and the silence from Conlon et al suggests something stinks and itv surely does looking at the share price collapse
mog: 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%.
badger36: 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...
bootycall: Moorsie2. It does not surprise me about the award. I seem to remember they won another one last year. Normally the share price goes down after the award... not before it :) On a serious note. Congratulations to Brian Conlon. Anyone who knows this man understands what a class act he is. Well deserved. I think First Derivatives moving forward will be quite shaken about this bear raid but I think they are sensible enough to learn from it. I would not be surprised if the auditors are changed and quite frankly so they should. I also expect a whole level off disclosure to be made at analysts results meetings, although this may take effect at the full year results to manifest itself properly. The software industry does seed start ups. I understand FDP has made a few small investments by way of small amounts of cash or provision of user licenses in exchange for revenue share agreements etc., with some smaller start up to widen the applications using their database technology. I am sure it does not help commercially having to disclose all the minutiae to competitors but they need to reassure their investor base by a greater level of transparency . I hear one of these investments, Cobalt, whilst very small is extremely promising. I hope I have found the right company (and apologies if I have not )but the same company received financial backing from the Singapore Exchange as you can see from this Crunchbase link. Now that is the sort of research which I would like to see more of ! hxxps://
bootycall: flybyknight Zero hedge has called a chart breakdown on the Russell 2000 index today. The small cap tech sector is imploding . My sources inform me that the FDP bear story was circulating as far back as June. FDP has enjoyed a very high multiple because of consistent delivery of earnings growth. Liberum reiterated at the end of last week its fully diluted EPS forecast for FDP to 2/19 as 94p and 107p for 2/20. I think that a high quality, well managed business in the data analytics sector deserves to be on a multiple of at least 40 times for calendar 2019.. inferring a valuation of £41-£42. I concede in these market conditions the share price could be pushed down to 30 times earnings..but the price is starting to look a my opinion. Liberum arrived at a much higher valuation (target price £53) after valuing the consultancy revenues at 3 times sales and the software sales at 6 times and applying a software multiple on the forecast revenues from new verticals to which it applied a 25% discount rate.The nearest comparators, loss making Cloudera and Hortonworks have just merged on a 6.5 times sales. Investors should look at FDP's compound earnings growth and remember this is after expensing material sums on new verticals which have yet to produce revenue. Furthermore, you could argue that FDP has spent north of £5M ? this year on these new verticals suggesting it is trading on close to 26 times core forward earnings for world leading technology. DYOR
swiss paul: With only weeks to go until the 2018 AIM awards, former AIM writer of the year Andrew Hore reveals who he thinks will walk off with the gongs this time. Global achievement award Software provider and consultancy First Derivatives is a regular on various shortlists, but it does not tend to win very often. It is one of the best performing AIM companies in terms of share price. More than two-thirds of revenues come from outside the UK. Best technology Software supplier First Derivatives is on the shortlist for the second year running and it is also in the running for the global achievement award (see above). Entrepreneur of the year Brian Conlon founded First Derivatives in 1996 and it is now capitalised at more than £1 billion. Best of luck all and proud to hold
moorsie2: This news will drive the share price to 55 within weeks
sspurt: Moorsie - it is but to exploit Kx in all the possible verticals and in a timely manner requires resource currently beyond FDP's reach. They know the upside is huge but are constrained by keeping cost growth in check to keep shareholders happy. Different avenues to market are being explored in order to accelerate the process which should make a difference but if not I can see BC bowing to the inevitable. No clue what this means for the share price though on 50x current year...
walbrock82: 1). Long-term shareholders in First Derivative will know the company made them lots of money. Since 2010, the share price rose by 2,000%. 2). But, has the shares risen too far? Has the company fundament caught up to valuation? Is FD likely to face a correction? For more analysis,
