tim1478: Share price bit of a fall today--tree shake?
steved: Agreed. OMG though are hugely cash generative and well padded with cash. The business is well paced in several niche and exciting areas. Obviously growth this year will be affected but will present opportunities for well financed and smart companies like OMG. All things considered the share price has held up well and feel that the covid - 19 hiccup apart, there is much to look forward to.
bbluesky: Sometimes I wonder if they gotta shotta Yotta and turned it into a special divi, what the impact on the share price would be. Rating would rise I suspect.
steved: In my own mind I've been intrigued with the potential for IMeasureU since the acquisition. The integration with Vicon software and the launch of the new blue trident sensor, has only piqued this further. This is not only for return to play applications but also training. I recently contacted OMG to try and get a little more information about the stated integration of a power metre into the sensor. The response was confirmation that it is in development together with other widget like feedback. Using power as a key training metric in cycling has gone mainstream, this could happen in other sports such as running for example if the right device was available. Furthermore Nick Bolten has stated that the aim is to have their software running in other devices. This could be part of the thinking with IMeasureU's products? Getting back to your comment on the strength of the share price I have similarly noticed not just the strength but the volume of trading over recent months, which previously was rather spasmodic and generally minimal. It is quite possible that there are those more closely aligned with OMG's markets who can see the potential and are buying in ahead of pack? AIMHO.
krobertson878: Nice day for the share price.
lignum: I think the majority of holders are in this for the long term leaving little liquidity and the share price susceptible to small volumes. This is not a trading share. The key issue for me is the 5 year plan and so long as they remain on track I will hold.
lignum: Steve D - I imagine they would have taken a conservative approach to forecasting incremental business from Origin but the deal with Sandbox should give them a solid base for forecasting into 2020. This would allow them to confirm they remain on track with their 5 year targets in the next trading update. The GDC that Games refers to above starts next Wednesday and I wonder if the Sandbox deal was timed to provide some extra publicity to get attendees to try out LBVR. If we see continuing share price movement towards the end of next week I suspect the solution may be a winner. Fingers crossed.
mfhmfh: very significant announcement today for VICON (which was already doing well). This could be a major income stream for OMG. share price rise is reflecting this. All IMHO.
steved: Lignum, Possibly the share has been held back since the results due to concerns about the global economy and perhaps BREXIT, even though it was clear that this isn't too much of an issue for OMG. The outlook from the directors said it all and all things being equal the share price had to react to all the positives sooner or later. I was surprised how much it dropped after the prelims and just couldn't resist a top up.
bearfoot: Hi Billy - the effect of paying of a special dividend is simply to reduce the asset value of the company (and therefore logically the share price) by that amount. In over-simple terms: if there's a 5p special dividend then it the share price will fall 5p. Indeed, this is exactly what happens when a share goes ex-div. A hypothetical example: if the OMG price before the dividend was, say 50p, then after the dividend it would be 45p (all other things being equal). In effect you have 'taken' 10% of your investment out of OMG. This is then taxed as income so if, unlike me, you are into paying higher levels of tax, you will be taxed at up to 45% on your 'sale' of this part of your holding. Ugh! Indeed, assuming you've got unused CGT exemption, then you can sell some of your holding at any time and with no tax cost. Personally, I'd rather the money was invested in growing the existing businesses. They have/had £8m of cash. I'd like to see them making that resource work to accelerate growth for the existing businesss... rather than being beinignly returned.... All the best
