|Didn't realise that Ivan Martin is also at FDM, another of my holdings. A good sign as they're going great guns as well. He obviously knows what he's doing.|
|This has been such a good share for me ,keeps on performing . I thought there might be a big rise today then a big pull back at close with a horrible shooting stat doji candle . Never happened lovely .. ... good Dividends and good management Thumbs up from me|
|Abnormally high volume traded today; whilst its a perfectly good update I didnt think it would drive such a positive response in the share price. Not complaining though.|
|Yes very nice update today, and could see further buying IMO. Aptitude Software seems to be the jewel in the crown, with contract wins proving the growth story in the US healthcare market.|
|A positive trading update with the AGM
I like the way this company understate and over deliver.
Aptitude have won two material contracts.Most companies would have RNSd that.
Both divisions have had a strong start to the year.
"Aptitude Software has successfully developed its presence in the US healthcare market with two material contracts secured since the start of the year"|
|And it does lovely ....|
|Must be something a foot let's hope three pound holds ....|
|You can currently sell at 300p and buy at 2.95p which is nice.|
|i remember the thread T/O meaning takeover. (There are 74 acronyms for T/O)|
|I posted on 20th Feb 2017 that this has a T/O feel about it...I am in at 175p.|
|Some more biggish trades again this morning.Surprised we have not had a recent holdings RNS.|
|Applies to me. I bought in a 210p and hoped to sell at 240p At 300p I am amazed.
Expecting a similar results with SPT|
|Janeann - this comment from Paul Scott today (discussing TET's trading statement) maybe also holds true for MCGN's recent good form:
"What's interesting, is that companies which release very positive trading updates often continue rising in price in the days/weeks/months after the initial surge in price. Mark Minervini mentions this in one of the many nuggets of gold in his book, How To Trade Like a Stock Market Wizard - which has been my favourite book I've read this year, so far. I think he calls it post-announcement drift, or something like that. So his contention is that, even though it means paying more for good companies, when they issue positive news, that is very often just the beginning of a bigger move upwards."|
|Very surprised they have continued their rise - it seems someone is accumulating these for whatever reason. Lots of round number trades - 1, 3 and 5k;|
|I bought in a while ago for quick profit. Think I'll stay for long haul.|
|New highs and more large trades.
This has been some performance in the last year.|
|Over 1m buys in trades this morning?|
Old Mutual manager Nick Williamson has upped his stake in wealth management and accounting software specialist Microgen (MCGN) as its share have spiked to a post tech-bubble high.
Williamson increased his investment from below a disclosable level to 5.5% of the business worth just under £9 million at a share price of 268p, the highest since April 2001.
The shares are held in the £173 million Old Mutual UK Smaller Companies Focus fund.
Microgen has shot up 16% this month alone, capping an 82% climb over the last 12 months. The latest leg up followed 2016 results showing revenue 35% higher at £43 million and profit 26% higher at £9.5 million. The company upped its full-year dividend 19% to 5p per share.
The rally has taken it to within a sliver of Investec’s recently-confirmed 270p target price however, on a price multiple of 27 times last year’s earnings.|
|Stockopedia showing FY17 forecast EPS upgraded by 13.5% to 12.6p & by 24% for FY18 to 14.3p|
|Does anyone have confirmed data on the price levels for performance related stock option awards to MCGN senior management? I recently read that the previous chairman's potential awards were tied into share price rises to 200p, 250p and 300p before November 2018.|
|Volume traded today 3.5 million so far.Given how illiquid this can be thats impressive.|
|someone buying large|
|You mean this morning's +4% is a sell signal?|
|What does it mean Lucky Mouse?
British Bulls say:
The market ran out of steam and the traders are now more in agreement about the bearishness. The evidence is strong enough to prompt the closing of long positions. The bearish pattern that was previously identified is finally confirmed and a SELL signal is generated.|
