velod - thanks for the entertaining prose. Not a lot of that about on these BB's.

Update: Was in such a tizzy (blind panic more like) this morning that I discovered back at my desktop that I had bought (computerised limit-buy order) @ 166p - and not as I first posted of 162p. - No matter, with a PE of 22 I'm now convinced that IS a bit rich in the face of a profit warning, so ceased hesitating and sold for 169p. Phew! Skin of the teeth get out of jail card! No damage done to my portfolios - lucky, lucky. The reason they have "sayings" is that experience shows them to have at least some validity. And you know what they say about profit warnings - they always come in "............." ( fill the blank in yourself :) - GL to all those still holding. That profit warning did it for me for all time with MGP. Nothing against revisiting this share in years to come but not for the next 12 months at least, for me. As a new listing it'll need to get rid of it's baby teeth first.

velod - you made my day mate! LOL Absolutely brilliant! I must admit that I don't trust limit orders as I want to check what the status is before I enter a trade in case something catastrophic is going on. For what it's worth (I am a subscriber to SCSW, but my track record recently has been abysmal - heavy losses on MGP and VLS yesterday), I would listen to your inner demon. However, don't fret, you helped me out by sharing your thoughts on MGP and VLS so I will share with you what the "not always psychic" SCSW editor (Luceco! cough! splutter!) says about Medica in February. Please can you drop me a line at the end of month to remind me. Cheers.

Far from great news. This company is overhyped IMHO. In hindsight, I am glad to have got stopped out in December although I lost a lot, having got in at 227.

A negative rns expecting a drop today, at the moment anything other than very positive seems to get punished

Reads like a profit miss trying to be positive, jam tomorrow. Not what I was expecting, they really must get better at managing expectations

Patience will hopefully be rewarded. Investec have Revenues at £35.6M and EBITDA up to £11.1M in their 2017 forecasts (2016 Actuals: Revenue £28.6M, EBITDA £9.2M). I will continue to add sub £2.

Ayl30, I agree that they aren't exactly over active on the PR front but as you say, worth hanging around for the next update. Regarding AI, I thought it was very telling that Google recently announced hiring 10,000 people to review youtube content manually. If their tech can't screen out extremist videos then I think it will be many years before AI can make life and death decisions with reading scans.Dibbs

Regarding the AI 'threat', scroll back to mid Sept postings Ay130, there was some discussion then.

I will hold at least to the next formal update, will re-evaluate at that point. They don't seem be be very good at keeping the PR pot boiling, they have a good story to tell but seem reluctant to do so. I am not asking for the share to be ramped up, more just keeping it in the news. On news tonight they are talking about how AI will be used to read scans, this could potentially impact on this co longer term

thebigshortfella, It's tricky with a relatively new listing to know what to expect with regards whether or not MGP will issue a trading statement as there is no historical pattern to look at. It took them around 2 1/2 months to issue interim results so I'd imagine around mid March for year end results. Let's not forget that MGP floated at 135p so it's not been a bad start. Saying that it's traded sideways for a long while since so not many of us that bought post float have made any money. From RNS announcements there has been a lot of institutional buying and selling going. Just a matter of time before the sellers dry up and if trading remains strong then we could see some gains from here. I think this looks a high quality business with defensive qualities so I'm happy to be patient. If SCSW are to be believed (I do) recruitment of radiographers has continued at pace. Hopefully to a degree that expectations will be beaten but who knows! Patience will hopefully be rewarded. Dibbs

This is proving an incredibly frustrating share. Any views or upcoming RNSs?
