malcontent: relax guys the share price drop just popped us back to test the 200 day MA on the chart It's a natural place to test and it's only a problem if we head lower and stay lower than the 220 d MA Remember it's the best indicator of a bull/bear trend since summer 2018 we sell off over £30 and we are a buy at £20 It's a trading range.
fp optimist: Good points Glavey and Mog, I still find 15% decline in share-price hard to take when headline figures had already been released and then confirmed. FD trades off a high PE and being bought by Tata (private money, low tech specialist in highly political markets) does not on the face of it appeal to shareholders. More a back-stop than a confident statement of understanding the huge opportunities in leading edge technology and where and how FD and its new management team were going to take us.
investorschampion: As at 31 March 2020, FD had gross cash available to it of £64m but in order to safeguard cash the final dividend for year to 29 February 2020 has been cancelled. Despite its evident defensive attributes, the shares have still fallen 35% since June 2019 highs, which is more a reflection of the very high rating.

swiss paul: Ah Mr B tell me which co has responded to Mr W? Have you never heard of bounded rationality? It is beneath the co to repsond to allegations, because if you respond to one - you then have to repsond to any and all spurious allegations. A dignified silence does wonders for the share price (notice the climb?). Yes i realise it dropped from a frothy height. Now if your unhappy with what is going on you can always attend the AGM and question the board. As an aside I find fat simon more convincing Edited to add - erm the information re the awards and offices are on the FDP website. You dont do RNS's for these sort of things - it costs money dontchaknow!
ezram: Badger36 What is the goal? If it is to talk down a share price, then you are failing miserably
ezram: If you are that concerned you should close out. I am sure Aqua has been eating into revenues of FDP. The relationship between the companies was lukewarm at best. I fear with no senior driving influence FDP price will plummet further.
ezram: If an undisclosed issue appears and is not reported in means the CFO and senior management are complicit. If the projections and sales figures have been massaged same thing applies. With share price falling staff retention via options is diminished. Can the senior management react? A vote of Confidence would be a set of director buys.
angusframpton: Please forgive my ignorance of the subject, but my simplistic understanding is that shorters make money by scaremongering the share price down, then buying more shares when they are low, waiting for recovery once scare fear wears off before profiting. So in this case, all is going to plan, and the shorters win?
ezram: I have an interest in this share Galvey. I had held a long time, and I will do so again. Idiots constantly shouting " up up and away" are ultimately responsible for the over correction in the share price recently. [ Which will continue further btw ] It basically made the people behind TW's posts life easy. If it had independent analyst views and balanced debate the share price would be growing, albeit slower, and it would provide a sensible dividend, and thus a better long term investment. Idiot accounting that people can use to smear and blur also doesn't help but certain people not taking a rational view, considering both the pro's and con's is a much bigger problem. These forums are used to construct private investor views and essentially the direction of the wind on any particular week. I yearn for the day you provide sensible.
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
