old father time: This share price is nonsense - the madness of AIM. A p/e ratio of 282 and a market value 10 times TURNOVER. And this for a company in a niche market with a relatively slow growth rate. Things can only go one way.

acquisitor: This is a lovely multi bagger for me. There is a lot to be said about businesses that where the executive have a significant stake. After what happened at Datamonitor, could this recent rise in the share price be a precursor to a bid by Danson for the remaining 10% he doesn't own? Or a bid for the company?

littleredrooster: Annual revenues in the global cloud infrastructure market are expected to roughly triple over the next three years to $133 billion, led by AWS and Microsoft's Azure cloud business hTTps://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/NASDAQ/AMZN/share-news/Amazon-Reigns-Over-Cloud-Market/80432812 Amazon Reigns Over Cloud Market 30/07/2019 11:48pm Dow Jones News By Angus Loten Amazon.com Inc. continues to dominate the market for basic computing resources that companies access online, largely by outspending its rivals on data centers and other physical resources, corporate tech executives and industry analysts say. Annual revenue from Amazon Web Services, or AWS, grew 27% last year to $15.5 billion, representing nearly half of the $32.4 billion in total revenues generated by providers in the global cloud infrastructure market, Gartner Inc. said in a report this week. Microsoft Corp., its closest rival, captured roughly 15% of the market, up from 12.7% in 2017. No other cloud provider broke 10%, the report said. By moving to the cloud, companies are outsourcing their computing needs: Cloud infrastructure services use their own data centers to provide companies with the raw computing components they have traditionally run in costly in-house data centers. This includes servers, storage, networking and other hardware that cloud-services companies offer on a pay-as-you-go basis. "AWS is a dominant leader in this space because of their size and scale, " said Chris Smith, vice president of cloud architecture at Unitas Global LLC, a Los Angeles-based hybrid cloud-services company that is a customer of AWS. He said AWS has "built an incredible ecosystem to support the variety and scale of needs required by their customers." Amazon's position shows that "scalability matters" for chief information officers and other senior enterprise information-technology managers choosing a cloud infrastructure vendor, Gartner vice president Sid Nag said in a research note. "Right now, AWS is the furthest in terms stability, scalability and product set," said Fred Lee, chief technology officer at online auto dealership Cars.com, an AWS customer. Amazon, a cloud market pioneer, on Tuesday launched a network of new data centers in Bahrain, raising the total number of what the company calls "availability zones" to 69 across 22 geographic regions. Each zone contains interconnected data centers. The sheer scale of Amazon's network of data centers provides users with ready and reliable access to secure computing power. The company said it plans to build nine new zones in Indonesia, Italy and South Africa. The expansion is aimed at meeting the rising demand from business customers for the computer capacity needed to deploy artificial intelligence, data analytics and other advanced capabilities, the company said. AWS customers include large companies such as Dole Food Co., Hess Corp. and McDonald's Corp., as well as thousands of startups and small businesses. Annual revenues in the global cloud infrastructure market are expected to roughly triple over the next three years to $133 billion, led by AWS and Microsoft's Azure cloud business, according to Forrester Research. Amazon last week reported $8.4 billion in sales by AWS in the latest quarter, a 37% increase from the year-earlier period. Operating income in its cloud-computing business rose 29% to $2.1 billion, the company said. Part of Amazon's dominance in the market is simply the result of deep pockets, Forrester says. It estimates that AWS spends billions of dollars every quarter building new data centers or expanding existing ones. Apart from Microsoft, most cloud-market challengers are struggling to keep up as Amazon pours more cash into its physical resources, according to Forrester. "We manage millions of customer interactions every day, so we need the ability to scale our IT environment," said Zviki Ben-Ishay, chief executive and co-founder of Lightico Ltd., a Tel Aviv- and New York-based startup that uses AWS to develop customer collaboration software for contact centers. Scale was also a key factor for Kevin Freiburger, director of identity programs at Valid SA, an identity management and biometric matching software maker based in Rio de Janeiro. He said the company chose AWS for a recent job to update Vermont's driver's license issuing system because its giant data-center network is able to automatically scale as demand increases, among other factors. "Our projects are a massive software undertaking and require instant access to infrastructure," Mr. Freiburger said. "We do not have time in a 12-month project to lose three months preparing the data center so that we can start deploying software," he said. Write to Angus Loten at angus.loten@wsj.com

littleredrooster: hTTps://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/NASDAQ/GOOG/share-news/Tech-Rally-Powers-Record-Gains-for-Stocks/80367029 Tech Rally Powers Record Gains for Stocks 21/07/2019 10:59am Dow Jones News By Amrith Ramkumar The biggest technology companies are propelling major U.S. indexes' record run, highlighting investor enthusiasm for the hottest stock sector as economic growth softens. Together, Microsoft Corp., Apple Inc., Amazon.com Inc. and Facebook Inc. have accounted for 19% of the S&P 500's total return this year, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices data through Thursday. That rate is roughly in line with the contributions made by the biggest tech stocks in 2017 and much of last year, before a fourth-quarter reversal helped roil markets. Giant asset managers including Vanguard Group, State Street Corp. and T. Rowe Price Associates Inc. generally increased their stakes in these firms as well as Alphabet Inc. and Netflix Inc. in the first quarter of the year, FactSet data show. The concentrated gains contrast with much of the market. Seven of the S&P 500's 11 sectors remain solidly below records, and shares of small companies that stand to benefit if the Federal Reserve cuts interest rates are well below their recent peaks. The divergence shows investors are putting a premium on assets that offer the prospect of significant growth, which is perceived as scarce with falling rates and lukewarm economic data. Investors in the coming days will weigh second-quarter results from Amazon, Alphabet and Facebook, while Apple is set to report July 30. "Many people just want them whether interest rates are rising, declining or staying where they are," said Jamie Cox, managing partner at Harris Financial Group, which owns shares of Microsoft and Amazon and has been increasing its position in Microsoft recently. Fears that trade tensions will slow global growth have kept many investors cautious, pushing them toward the FAANG stocks -- Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google parent Alphabet -- as well as Microsoft. Many view these firms as less dependent on economic activity and attractive because they tend to participate in hot areas for investment such as cloud computing and artificial intelligence. "If you don't own a core holding in some of the leaders, you might be missing out," said Mona Mahajan, U.S. investment strategist at Allianz Global Investors. "Those few names are probably benefiting disproportionately because they have real growth stories behind them." At the same time, some investors are keeping an eye on signs the rally might be vulnerable. Netflix, among the most popular shares in recent years, tumbled more than 10% Thursday after subscriber data in its latest quarter disappointed Wall Street. Fund managers surveyed by Bank of America Merrill Lynch earlier this month ranked U.S. tech stocks the second-most-crowded trade across markets, trailing only U.S. Treasurys. Crowded trades are ones viewed as so likely to pay off that bad news often results in large losses. "The ones we tend to be a little more leery about are the ones that are growing just because of momentum," said Omar Aguilar, chief investment officer for equities and multiasset strategies at Charles Schwab Investment Management. The FAANG group and Microsoft are in the top 10% of most crowded S&P 500 stocks, according to an analysis by Ann Larson, managing director of global quantitative research at AllianceBernstein. Her firm uses a model to assess popular trades that factors in top holdings by active managers, stakes they have been building in the past several quarters, earnings estimates, stock performance and bank analyst ratings. The analysis also shows that technology is currently the most crowded sector. The biggest tech firms aren't the only ones benefiting. Semiconductor stocks have recovered from a dismal May and climbed in five consecutive weeks even as companies warn that tariffs are hurting their businesses. Shares of smaller social-media companies are rallying in lockstep, with Twitter Inc. up 28% in 2019 and Snap Inc., the parent company of Snapchat, more than doubling this year. Some of those companies are expected to record losses or slower profit growth moving forward, but investors say their gains illustrate a continuing search for greater returns as global bond yields fall. Yields decline as bond prices rise and have plumbed multiyear lows recently. The rally is increasing attention on whether stocks are too expensive based on common valuation metrics. The information-technology sector now has a price/sales ratio of 4.6, FactSet data based on revenues in the past year show, while the broader S&P 500 has a ratio of 2.15. Facebook, Netflix and Microsoft have much higher valuations based on sales than Amazon and Apple. But those concerns have prevailed for years, and some say the time hasn't come to act on them. "The playbook says invest in higher-quality names during times like these, and people are following the playbook," said Brent Schutte, chief investment strategist at Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management.

littleredrooster: $100bn European listing and the wrong envelopes were dispatched to shareholders. hTTps://www.ft.com/content/daa5ddc2-942d-11e9-b7ea-60e35ef678d2 South Africa’s Naspers postpones planned $100bn European listing Administrative error forces group to delay Dutch move until September Joseph Cotterill in Johannesburg June 21, 2019 South Africa’s Naspers delayed its planned $100bn European listing of global internet assets, which includes a large stake in China’s Tencent, after the wrong envelopes were dispatched to shareholders. Johannesburg-listed Naspers said on Friday that it would postpone listing what is likely to be Europe’s biggest consumer internet group until September, following the administrative error by an external service provider. The listing on the Euronext Amsterdam, a landmark in the rise of Africa’s most valuable listed company as a global investor, was originally scheduled for July 17. Naspers, which also announced results for the year ending in March on Friday, said that the outside company mixed up names and addresses on circulars sent to shareholders ahead of a meeting this month to consider the listing. “This could in some cases lead to confusion” and the company has delayed the meeting to August “so as to allow all shareholders equal opportunity to fully consider the circular and resolution,” Naspers said. The listing is aimed at reducing a significant discount in Naspers’ share price that is being driven by the sheer size of its investment in Tencent, which it has held since 2001. The company’s 31 per cent stake in the Chinese gaming giant — of which it sold a portion last year — has pushed its value to about a quarter of the Johannesburg stock market. South African investors have been forced to sell the stock to cut down on concentration risk as a result. Naspers plans to retain about 75 per cent of the vehicle, which has been named Prosus, the company said on Friday. It will also include assets such as Russia’s mail.ru and India’s Swiggy as well as internet classifieds. The free float of about 25 per cent will be offered to shareholders and is also likely to be snapped up by European investors as the company will enter major stock indices. Prosus will have a secondary listing in Johannesburg. Naspers increased trading profits by 10 per cent to $3.3bn during the 12 months ending in March, a year in which it spun off its African pay-TV arm, MultiChoice, in Johannesburg. “Naspers enters the 2020 financial year as a fundamentally different group, with virtually all revenues now generated from online activities, and is well positioned as a global consumer internet group,” the company said. The group invested more than $3bn during the period as it expanded segments including classifieds, food delivery and payments. Naspers reported $6.3bn in cash after it reduced its Tencent stake for the first time ever last year, and sold a stake in India’s Flipkart.

littleredrooster: hTTp://www.netimperative.com/2019/04/facebook-asks-governments-for-help-policing-internet/ Facebook asks governments for help policing internet April 1, 2019 Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has asked governments and regulators to play “a more active role” in policing the internet and the standards of big online companies. Zuckerberg said firms such as his had huge responsibilities, deciding matters such as which content is harmful and what constitutes political advertising. “If we were starting from scratch, we wouldn’t ask companies to make these judgments alone,” he said in an open letter. “By updating the rules for the internet, we can preserve what’s best about it – the freedom for people to express themselves and for entrepreneurs to build new things – while also protecting society from broader harms,” said Facebook’s CEO. Facebook has been criticised for not doing enough to quickly take down harmful content and hate speech, for example after the New Zealand terror attack, and for not being transparent enough over who is paying for political ads. This week, however, it responded to some of that criticism by announcing a ban on content promoting white nationalism and separatism. It is also looking at restrictions on live video streaming. What does Zuckerberg want? In brief, Zuckerberg calls for the following things in the letter: •Common rules that all social media sites need to adhere to, enforced by third-party bodies, to control the spread of harmful content •All major tech companies to release a transparency report every three months, to put it on a par with financial reporting •Stronger laws around the world to protect the integrity of elections, with common standards for all websites to identify political actors •Laws that not only apply to candidates and elections, but also other “divisive political issues”, and for laws to apply outside of official campaign periods •New industry-wide standards to control how political campaigns use data to target voters online •More countries to adopt privacy laws like the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force last year •A “common global framework” that means these laws are all standardised globally, rather than being substantially different from country to country •Clear rules about who’s responsible for protecting people’s data when they move it from one service to another The open letter, which will also be published in some European newspapers, comes as the social network faces questions over its role in the Cambridge Analytica scandal around data misuse during election campaigns.

littleredrooster: https://www.investegate.co.uk/globaldata-plc--data-/rns/possible-acquisition/201802260700058565F/ GlobalData PLC 26 February 2018 Possible Acquisition The board of directors ("Board" or "Directors") of GlobalData Plc (AIM:DATA) ("GlobaData", the "Company" and, together with its subsidiary undertakings, the "Group") announces that the Company is in advanced discussions concerning the possible acquisition of Energy, Construction and Financial Services data and analytics companies, Research Views Limited, Progressive Ventures Limited, Progressive Media Ventures Limited and their respective subsidiaries (together the "Target Group"), private companies owned by Mike Danson (CEO, GlobalData) and a number of other minority shareholders including Wayne Lloyd (Managing Director, GlobalData US) (the "Vendors") (the "Acquisition"). It is envisaged that the Target Group will be re-organised prior to completion of the Acquisition to form a single group owned by Research Views Limited. It is currently expected that the consideration for the Acquisition is to be satisfied through the issue of approximately 18 million new ordinary shares in the Company to the Vendors, representing approximately 17.6% of the Company's current issued share capital. The Board intends that appropriate lock-in and orderly market arrangements will be put in place. In the year to 31 December 2017, the Target Group generated pro forma revenues of approximately £27.0m. The Directors believe the Acquisition will further advance the Company's transformation into a global data and analytics company with a truly differentiated multi-industry offering, significantly increasing its addressable market. It will add the Energy industry and strengthen the recently acquired Construction business. It will provide complementary intelligence assets and capabilities relevant to existing Healthcare and Financial Services industries. The Acquisition is commercially aligned to the Group's primarily subscription based model and is operationally complementary especially in the context of the Group's existing analyst and client service operations. Following the Acquisition the Group addresses at least 8 major global industries with a global expert community operating in 23 offices worldwide. The Acquisition is expected to be earnings accretive in the first full year of ownership. If final terms are agreed between the respective parties together with satisfactory due-diligence, the Acquisition will require the approval of GlobalData's shareholders at a general meeting. In addition, the Acquisition would constitute a related party transaction for the purposes of Rule 13 of the AIM Rules for Companies, and the Company's independent directors would, amongst other things, be required to confirm that the terms of the proposals are fair and reasonable insofar as GlobalData's shareholders are concerned. The Acquisition remains subject to binding legal agreements and there can be no certainty that these discussions will lead to a transaction. Further announcements will be made at the appropriate time.
