|And holding onto it too!|
|Another sharp move, albeit small on the back of the Midas column tip ?
Good luck all :)|
|Good article in the Midas column of the Mail on Sunday today encouraging existing shareholders to hold and new ones to buy.|
|At 50p I couldn't quibble with anyone banking a few profits, given the stellar market cap and recent surge, now. Put this up about 34p as my share for 2017 (shameless pluggery :)) so not far off a 50% gain already However the market is not wrong in recognizing the remarkable growth story we have here unfolding. For the patient, this looks a one way ticket higher in the long run as the numbers start to kick in.Brode's comment about the acquisition previous to NetB bring 'transformational' in 2017 excites enough and now this one could bring similar comments in the years ahead.I'd settle for 60p year end and for those prepared to play the long game, (I hope to if personal finances permit) three figures by the time 2020 comes round.|
|Gosh ! That's delightfully optimisitic and I would love to see that happen !!
If we are in the ballpark share price figures of the mid seventies pence, I am quite happy to donate £150 across my favourite charities - MSF, WaterAid, Farm Africa and Kiva.
Good luck Tarrant777 :)|
|77pHappy with the £20 to charity bit!Good luck!|
|Hi Tarrant777...I'll be a sport and play along :) My money to a charity if I lose.
I would conservatively guess we could be in the 63-65p midprice range by 31.12.2017 - depending on what the trading updates tell us in between.
That could mean we have a market cap of around £275m and we could be fairly close to getting to £40-45m in terms of 2017 revenues.I am pretty conservative in my approach, so as always would be delighted to proved wrong.
Of course the usual caveats of global force majeure apply - hopefully we don't have
N Korea related conflagration.
What's your guess ?
Maybe you are a lot closer to action than I am !!
Good luck all :)|
|Multibagger. I would be much more interested in your guesstimate of the possible LTG share price on 31/12/17.When I've seen your guess, I'll give you mine with a bottle of Scotch to the winner?|
|Powering through like a hot knife through butter !
Can I make another bold prediction ?
Just so that I can be proven wrong ?
LTG will never hit 55p by the end of next week ;)
Good luck all ;)|
|Here we go.|
|You may be right Multibagger as I sense that you are nearer the action than me, but trades at 50p currently showing on the ADVFN screen as I type.This week/ next week, whatever, the shares have had a good run based on outstanding management performance and acquisition strategy.Let's hope for much more of the same!|
|Panned out as expected so far and on course to settle in the 51-52p before next lot of news I would think.
Not sure that we'll settle at 50p today as last trading day this week. I would be delighted to be proved wrong however !|
|SP 50p this week?|
|Not currently holding, and Andrew Brode's name didn't ring any bells with me at all when I saw this one last week. That is until I saw the update from RWS today. Looks like this guy is associated with quality businesses. New to this company I guess the substantial director buying a fortnight ago is associated with the NETD deal, but then again there's only one reason people buy shares. Back on my research list.|
|Can buy just below the mid-price right now. Tucked 23k of them away just now at 47.7p. Not yet showing.|
|Good to see ongoing buyer interest in the shares (endorsed by brokers and positive press coverage this week) and the market cap passing £1/4bn.Next stop £1/2bn, although may have to wait a year or two unless they make further great acquisitions sooner!|
|wonder who gave the Non Exec the sweetheart deal at 37.5p yesterday|

Learning Technologies Group is one of those technology businesses that is hard to get a handle on because there is nothing quite like it. Its field of electronic learning might give rise to thoughts of poor beleagured Pearson, but they are in quite different areas.
LTG provides training modules for companies and assesses their efficacy. Much, maybe two fifths, is regulated business for compliance and the like and a lot — about 27 per cent of the total last year — is on a recurring basis, which tends to stick around.
The company has carried out some small acquisitions but the more recent and largest, last month, is reckoned to bring with it the last pieces of the services it needs to provide. NetDimensions, which is AIM quoted, provides the rest of the platform and an entry into the south-east Asian market. The deal was large, £53.6 million, for a company with a market value of about £250 million, now partly backed by a placing at 37 ½ p.
It also renders the 2016 results largely historic, although a trebling in revenues from outside the UK is encouraging enough The chairman and one backer is Andrew Brode, who is behind Burford Capital, the litigation funder that is one of Tempus’s most successful tips this year. LTG won a large contract to serve the UK civil service at the end of 2015 that will provide full revenues this year.
The shares rose 1½p to 45½p yesterday. The company has come a long way, but you should tuck the shares away for the long term.
My advice Buy
Why The company is well positioned in a growth market|
|Tipped by Tempus in the Times this morning.|
|Paul Scott may be joining the party - hxxp://www.stockopedia.com/content/small-cap-value-report-wed-5-apr-2017-sty-hss-ltg-179128/|
|A proper growth company doing 'what it says on the tin'. Excellent progress once again.
They've spotted a fragmented marketplace and are now becoming the leading player in it. They will set the industry standard for many years to come and as we talk of household names in other sectors, over coming years I believe people will look to LTG for the standards to attain to in this space.
A market leader for under 50p a share? Yes please!
incidentally i'm not sure exactly what the float price was but this thread went up in November 2013 and as of now has less than 270 posts. Under 2 a week and yet a multibagger.
''More ways to skin a cat'' comes to mind :)|
|yep agree results, particularly growth, look very good. Potential for this to go a long way, one for the bottom draw and accumulate on any weakness imv
|A set of stellar results and given the tight liquidity, I am hoping for a new share price high today :)

Commenting, Jonathan Satchell, CEO of LTG, said:
"2016 was another fantastic year for LTG during which we delivered strong revenue and profit growth as well as completing the acquisition of Rustici Software and investment in Watershed Systems.
LTG is very well placed in its digital learning segment of the global corporate training market and it is pleasing to see that recurring revenues increased to 27% and revenues outside of the UK to 36%."
Commenting, Andrew Brode, Chairman of LTG, said:
"The Group has enjoyed a strong start to 2017 and is trading in line with management's expectations, and significantly ahead of last year. We expect the current financial year to benefit from a healthy order book, increased sales resulting from our compelling blended learning capability and continuing strong margins. LTG has substantially diversified its geographical reach in the past year and has developed a broad client base both across corporate and government sectors. The Board is excited by the opportunities already identified that the acquisition of NetDimensions offers the Group. The Board is therefore confident in the Group's prospects and expects to report enhanced progress during 2017."|
|I agree with your observations Tarrant777. Also with a fair chunk of our revenues in USD would help the margins. I won't be surprised if we achieve a share price close to the 48-49p mark on results.
This is a very exciting high growth stage for LTG and with Brode and Satchell at the helm, I feel confident of our prospects.
Good luck all :)|
|Strong buying demand over the last 7/8 days with volumes suggesting a mixture of Institutional and retail buyers the combination of which has pushed the share price close to all time high and the market cap to almost 1/4 billion pounds.Results due out later this week which we already know from trading statements will be strong, so suspect that we will see the share price testing new highs by the end of the week.|
