A true bargain if ever there was one. The government could reduce fobt stakes to £1 and the share price here would still be s bargsin. One of the most future proof businessedon plantet earth, diversified and very profitable. The share price is now a rediculously low levels.

If you look at the 3-year chart retracements of 140p are annual. Followed by a rebound. There's always a background story for the traders to work the share price It has often been Sagi's selling. What is it this time? Is the FOBT scaremongering?It looks like a good time to buy.

B1ggles, I know, it's all about gambling regulations I presume. Hopefully the 200 holds around 877p.

Being hammered out there but ex-divi counts for a lot of it. Will look to open a SB I think very soon

The Plus 500 profit alone is worth 60 to 100 million. Not to mention the mind boggling divis Playtech receives.

This is becoming rediculous.has to be the cheapest growth tech stock in Europe, with a galvanised market position and fingers in many pies. Pathetic really.

rns suggests that we may get an acquisition or share price moving news before November. seems no reason for the continual drop apart from share over hang from recent large selling. I am still purchasing and have a sizeable holding now. no special dividend suggested to me acquisition was likely , hope to be proved right. tech and consolidation sectors are the place to pick up the decent returns.

Analysts are indicating that a cut in the maximum stake to £20 is already priced into gambling companies. This sort of level seems reasonable.Personally, I don't think it will have the impact on revenue that has been calculated by some analysts. If someone has £200 to spend on an FOBT they will get through it whether the maximum stake is £5 or £25.The bookies should focus its resources on less visible gambling such as online.

I thought we might have had an RNS as a result of the 20m shares traded in one day a couple of weeks ago.If PTEC is being held back by the FOBT review then once that is out if the way it should climb well above 1000p.I would have thought the UK government had far more pressing legislation and regulation to sort out than slot machines.

shaker, it was not the only reason in the PTEC takeover of Plus. Plus had already been in trouble twice and the FCA had made it known it was focusing on offshore firms like Plus. At the time Sagi held 30% of PTEC. Here is an extract from the press at the time, which sums up the other issues."Neither company spelled out the FCA's concerns, although it is understood they centred on management experience and the previous issue of anti-money laundering systems at Plus500. The regulator has also made it clear that it is focusing its firepower on offshore-registered gaming and financial trading companies. Playtech is based in the Isle of Man and Plus500 in Tel Aviv."

You make a good point but if that was the only reason they declined the plus500 takeover, they took a helluva long time over it. Now we have the EU regulators to look forward to in January 2018 who seem to feel punters need protecting from themselves, and sharp marketing practices.

Slippery, you may be missing an important point. Regulators will block acquisitions when a major shareholder has a criminal record. This happened a long time ago when PTEC held 10% of Sportech which was trying to acquire a US betting business. It was not approved until PTEC sold its shareholding in SPO. This block was due to Sagi being a major shareholder of PTEC and having been jailed.Regulators didn't allow the PTEC take over of PLUS500 while Sagi was still a major shareholder. Some regulators of more desperate countries approved the takeover.Personally, I'm in favour of preventing former criminals from having any control in financial markets. Unfortunately the extremely weak and greedy regulation of AIM gives criminals a foothold on the stock exchange. It's then up to other regulators to prevent this foothold from extending.

Interesting. Ptec are flying again now at least - not sure why it fell in the first place

You see like Playtech, Fintech Group AG is both nuts and bolts b2b and front line b2c with its cfd and share brockerage. Unlike Playtech, and nearly every other player, it has its own bank. At less than a 300 mil euro market cap it will not be around for long. A sitting duck if ever there was one.

In fact I was amazed that Sagi didnt block Safecharge's sale of their 10% strategic stake in Fintech Group AG, or at the very least persuade them to sell it to Playtech. The fit for tradetech would be like a glove and they could more easily duplicate the success of the gaming model within tradetech.

Funny enough they have just jumped to 18 euro on Wednesdays interims and German press. The CEO has also recently stressed his determination to make them into a billuon euro compsny eithin the next 3 years. Treble todays value. Worth a look hxxps://www.fintechgroup.com/en/

They should go for German Fintech outfit Fintech Group AG. I am a holder of their stock and their interims a few days ago show a grossly undervalued company going from strength to strength. The company has its own bank, a thriving b2b arm and a b2c cfd budineds snd is a low cost stockbroker. The company seems to be going places now after a restructuring and a couple if acquisitions. They are trading at about 17.50 euro. Broker forecasts target up to 28 euro a share. Furthermore, they have made their accounting much more transparrent and are planning moving to prime listing later this year. I bought after Safecharge pulled out of a deal with them a couple of years ago because long term I like them more than Safecharge. They seem to have cornered Germany and Austria and are planning on taking on the established banks snd brokers in EU. I have gone overweight.

The management do seem aggressive and competent without Sagi. I remain confident that PTEC will continue to grow and dominate. There are fewer and fewer players left now. GVC are a bigger threat as they have everything in house and can compete in the B2B market

...but surely. When really has PTEC put a foot wrong in recent history? Sagi selling down and that influence on the share price wasn't a company thing. PLUS further illustrates if there's more deal making to be done we can have confidence in PTEC (imo).
