That's always the problem - you just never know for certain what's going to happen! FWIW I'm expecting quite a bit of short term profit taking on a number of stocks which have done well recently but still believe the fundamental story is intact here. There's certainly some short term manipulation going on here. I rarely look at intraday trades in detail but I don't recall seeing anything like this on OXIG before.

hope that spike was not a market top as ocasionally happens. I bought recently and might have put the kiss of death on it ! ( wry smile ! ). Off a bit today but probably just consolidating before kicking higher .

On a stock like this it renders L2 meaningless while it's going on ! EDIT : At it again this morning. Seems to me that they're trying to hold the price at around the 1515 level.

bluebelle- interesting comments . This algorythmic trading or whatever it is called is pain with orders coming off on on the L2 rapidly . All part of the manipulation which the LSE allows !

arja Just been looking at it and the trades around it. Seems to me that it was probably a computing glitch - there has been a very high number of bot trades this afternoon. Always difficult to tell whether they're buys or sells until afterwards, as the whole point is to shift large volumes in small parcels whilst moving the price as little as possible. From the pattern, I would say that there are at least 2 and possibly 3 players operating and from that I would conclude that they're buying. Time will tell !

yes, it is now a NOR situation and could go much higher unless the spike meant insiders were aware of bad news to come !

my IG Markets L2 ticket says £16.68 but chart says otherwise . IG Markest are pathetic but almost have a monopoly in offering DMA . If not I would leave them as they rip me off in a number of niggly ways ! have a nice weekend.

oxig appears on a lot of mid cap manager's top positions now - i suspect it is seen as the must own stock. i will hold but watch with keen interest for progress. it certainly is gettting the right attention from the big boy investors.

tara You have your own thread on which to carry on ramping that stock; you have been asked not to do it on various threads but you continue to do so, increasingly, it must be said, in desperation. I repeat, everyone is aware of the size of the Chinese market but you conveniently, and consistently, ignore, whilst implying otherwise, the fact that the company you are promoting has no profitable business there. Now please leave this thread for the discussion of OXIG and do your ramping of other stocks elsewhere. EDIT I see you're down by a further 18% on today's results.

Bluebelle. I think posters here can. A: Note that 3 or 4 oxford based companies are storming on the stockmarket right now. B: Note the size of the Chinese market. C: Note i am a buyer of the stock.

tara is ramping this all over the place but it is not even vaguely comparable to OXIG. It is all smoke and mirrors as is tara's style. Tip it; ramp it and take his profits. tara talks about potential in China as if it's a done deal, but it's not. They don't have a single signed, revenue generating contract. It's a measure of tara's desperation that, having induced people to buy at over 240 when the stock is now trading at sub 200, he comes on any thread for which he can find a tenuous link to try and ramp it up again. OXIG is based in Oxford. PTO has links with a previously unsuccessful business in and around Oxford. That's where the similarity ends !

Also based in Oxford, looks like they are going to do a chart like yours. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-iEEyjg6sM PTO Digitise Libraries in China. £15M market cap. Stupid. What would you charge the Chinese to do that with your world beating brand new digital software.??

edwardt 4 Jan'13 - 12:58 - 332 of 335 0 0 noticed this is on goldman sachs conviction buy list with a six month upside potential of 75% - i will be happy if we get 10%! Wouldn't object, but that seems a bit rich - even to me ! Having said that, they did over 50% last year when everyone was saying they were way overvalued this time last year.

bouleversee I agree with edwardt (and the subsequent performance of companies paying special dividends is chequered at best !). It's not as if they don't pay anything - as I mentioned earlier they have increased the dividend in each of the last 3 years and are forecast to do so next. I think reinvesting in R&D to generate future growth shows that the company really has confidence in its own prospects - a much better use of the money IMHO than giving it to the likes of me to squander on high living !!!

i would rather sell some shares and use my cgt allowance and not pay tax. it would also be a mixed message for a growth stock not to reinvest in its own r&d etc - ie they would be admittting they can not make a return on it.

Bluebelle - I really don't see why they couldn't do a special dividend as the present one is covered so many times. Long-term holders deserve a bit of the money to spend, without having to sell shares. We could all get richer if we never paid our dues. They don't show similar restraint re their own benefits.

bouleversee 16 Nov'12 - 12:32 - 329 of 330 Yes, the yield isn't brilliant but that's partly because, although the dividend per share has increased in each of the last three years and is forecast to do so next/this year also, the price has run ahead of that increase - the yield on a smaller pay out per share was over 7% 4 years ago. In that period investment in R&D per share per year has roughly doubled - it's now over 5 times the dividend per share - and, as a holder with a long term view - I would much rather see that than a higher dividend (although of course a higher dividend too would be nice !)
