aphrodites: As I said on 5 May and will repeat: "A great trading share but what a pity the value of the company is discredited by its share price volatility!" The share price is open to manipulation and will continue the same pattern until the main existing institutional holders, and hopefully new ones, are content that the business is in good shape, in capable hands and is being properly managed. We must wait until this confidence is clearly evident and the demand to buy shares scares anyone away from thinking of shorting them. To see the price at 130p on 4 May and to touch 102p today, a 21% fall in 18-trading days, without any new news, hardly instils any confidence in those holding the shares. But there are games being played not only by the hedge funds who are short of the shares but also the MM’s and more than likely T. Rowe is a big factor in these games as well. Does anyone really believe the volume of 4.5m shares traded by 10.24am today is indicative of the normal supply and demand factors which set share prices? Of course, it’s not. This is pure manipulative trading which is not healthy at all for the company. What one would hope, is that ahead of the AGM the Board would wish to be able to meet with shareholders against a background of a stable share price which is moving gently upwards and indicative there are very good times ahead. What we see today is exactly the opposite. Other than the Board ensuring regular upbeat announcements about the progress the company is making, it is hard to see it can do anything else while these punters throw the share price around willy-nilly! Frustrating and annoying as it may seem, IQE would be best taken over and the sooner the better. A partner who can build the business under an umbrella of common and existing intellectual property would be far more beneficial than IQE continuing to trade in the current environment. One has to watch and wait and, in the meantime, we must suffer the frustrations of the current share price volatility.

thecrunk: I think its safe to say there was no reaction to IQE share price now by all that exceptional news. Why? The shorters are and have been in control of this share for six months. Its six love to the shorters. Can investors do anything about it? NO Can the board do anything about it? NO - they must look after the company first. Investors will see the fruits of their work March 2019. So until then investors must just wait and let the shorters have the day (I mean year) Or - alternative hypothesis - the board could actually bloody well do something RE promoting the IQE in any way possible.

"Except IQE share price goes down." -End- Relax crunk,it's just 'pausing for breath' after the rise of 5.8p yesterday and possibly down due to a bit of profit taking. The drop was almost bound to happen as I bought a few just before yesterday's close for 108.95p. Tuck them away and think long-term.

amt: Actually iPhone sales came in slightly short of expectations but Apple is making more money in other areas these days. So nothing to get too excited about as far as IQE investment concerned. Apple is far more than mobile phones these days so we cannot just take a superficial look at Apples results and conclude that good Apple earnings equals good news for IQE. I do expect IQE share price to rise today but not sure given the beating it is taking it will be sustained.

cielos: IQE future is rosy / Apple ditches intel Not the first time apple have brought everything in house. They nearly went bankrupt with this approach before bringing Steve Jobs back and started using off the shelf parts. Other companies have done the same thing IBM made bespoke CPU's, DASD and other parts. Now because of the continued cost of development they buy parts off the shelf. Sony designed a bespoke CPU for the PlayStation then on the next version went back to buying off the shelf CPU from Intel. Also believe that IQE products will still be required by apple to create the new bespoke CPU's. IQE share price inflated because it has links to Apple but the company is not dependant on them.

someuwin: Investors Chronicle "IQE answers the short sellers By Megan Boxall UK-listed homegrown tech companies are a dwindling group. Many of the good (see Arm) and the bad (see Imagination Technologies) have been snapped up by international peers and private equity groups, seeking to capitalise on their top-class intellectual property, or in the latter case take advantage of share price weakness. IQE (IQE) has flitted between good and bad during the last six months. In August 2017, investors were clamouring for a slice of the company amid speculation that its Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) products were being used by Apple (US:AAPL) in the iPhone X. By November, concerns had begun to mount that the group was perhaps relying too heavily on the US tech giant. And in February, sentiment took a turn for the worst when two short sellers accused the company of a “fundamental misrepresentation of its profit and cash generation”. But the company’s founder and chief executive, Drew Nelson, wants IQE to carve out a new category: a great British tech company. That, he says, is one of the reasons the group developed its partnership with Cardiff University. The 50:50 joint venture – known as CS Connected – was founded in 2015 with “the aim of creating and sustaining over 2,000 high-skilled jobs”. Mr Nelson explains that the joint venture gives IQE access to new technology, while IQE in turn has provided the joint venture with initial business to “limit its start-up losses”. "The accounting for joint ventures is often complex and this has given an angle to those wishing to interpret the results as negatively as possible" For ShadowFall and Muddy Waters – the short sellers whose scathing reports dented IQE’s share price in February – that relationship is a cause for concern. The two groups have claimed that IQE has a cyclical affiliation with CS Connected, which allowed it to inflate its own profits in 2015 and 2016. Muddy Waters suggested that IQE has hidden some of the costs of tech development in CS Connected by booking licence fee revenue from the joint venture, but not recognising its losses. The short seller even goes as far as suggesting that the group's accounting is “possibly designed to deceive investors”. Mr Nelson fervently denies these allegations and said that the two companies released their reports to profit from their short positions. Muddy Waters published its report shortly before the markets closed on Thursday 8 February, which sent the group’s share price down 11 per cent on the day, although they have since rebounded. That was shortly after the release of ShadowFall's report on 5 February. Nevertheless, the reports did raise some eyebrows in the City. According to the Financial Times, one analyst was spurred into visiting IQE’s facilities following the release of the Muddy Waters analysis, “to confirm the authenticity of the CS Connected joint venture”. An analyst at Citigroup agreed that both reports contained points that were “valid from an accounting standpoint”. Meanwhile, five funds have increased their short positions since the allegations were published. However, analysts at Peel Hunt argue that “the accounting for joint ventures is often complex and this has given an angle to those wishing to interpret the results as negatively as possible”. Broker Stifel explains that IQE followed accounting regulations by writing the joint venture down to a zero net book value on its balance sheet once its losses exceeded the initial investment, and thus isn’t obliged to account for any further losses. Meanwhile, Canaccord Genuity has removed joint-venture licence sales from its forecasts from 2018 onwards. CS Connected is no longer reliant on IQE now that it has developed its own technology and built up a cluster of external customers, Mr Nelson says. It looks unlikely that IQE is going to be swept away by UK investors due to an accounting scandal. But we do still harbour concerns that it might go the same way as Imagination Technologies: too reliant on one company to thrive. Indeed, the majority of the 23 per cent forecast uptick in pre-tax profits between 2017 and 2018 is expected to come from the photonics business, of which Apple is thought to be its only customer at present. But Mr Nelson has dismissed those concerns: “the photonics market is set to explode and IQE is in a premium position to benefit”. IC View There remains a lot of work to be done if IQE is going to make it as a truly great UK tech company and risks remain high. However, we don't think the allegations will threaten IQE's long-term growth in photonics. The shares are still not exactly cheap, trading on 26 times 2018 earnings, so we think it prudent for those not already invested to stay on the sideline for now. At 132p, hold. Last IC View: Sell, 108p, 1 Feb 2018"

crazycoops: At 180p there was an argument to say the IQE share price had run ahead of itself. A bear case on valuation grounds at that price was reasonable as there was plenty of hot money involved. At £1 it looks like the bull case on valuation grounds is much stronger, once again. 2017 results to be published in March will be ahead of expectations. 2018 and 2019 guidance is likely to lead to significant broker upgrades. It will be interesting to see which shorters hang around for results day and which ones try to exit beforehand. It will also be interesting to see if any IIs decide to start buying in volume and when. I suspect the shorts that are well in the money from 180p down will have a different mindset to those that have joined the party a little late in the day.Tick tock!
