nod: I don't agree with companies buying their own shares. When they have spare cash they should return it shareholders in the dividend. However, when the share price is this low is not the time to stop. They are now getting 3 or 4 times as many shares than late 2019.
kickingking: Your compare the share price of this and GAN over the year and this has been a complete disaster. The board don't care about the small investors, they pick up over inflated salariesand free shares. No regular RNS to calm the price drop. They better have a stonking good update this Thursday or we be into £2 range in no time. I'm still trying to remember what made me think this was good investment when I purchased. Waiting for a miracle.
kickingking: Only one more week to wait for update. On their website every month they announce an agreement extention and other useful news. If they reported as RNS as other companies would, I'm sure the share price would not have dropped so much. GLH
carer: people will play much more at home while there is a lot travel restrictions around. Company felt the need to change the broker to ensure the share price moving to the right direction? Next result would be important to see.
nod: If PTEC walked away from China it may have a positive affect on the share price after a few months. There would be some revenue loss but this is offset by the removal of a key risk and overall negative perception from operating in an illegal market. PTEC has said China is highly competitive, margins have been eroded and we are offering incentives to stay in this illegal market.China is not likely to be regulated and, if it were, PTEC is unlikely to be a selected partner as they are a supplier to illegal operators (and are not Chinese).
f15jcm: No major red flags here, still looks like very good value to me. 22% upside on offer if you just intend to trade the range it has been in for some time. Think downside risk (with the exception of new regulation, which is always possible) looks very limited given the dividend on offer. Any new buyback program (surely likely?) would further support the share price.
amadeus888: A combined dividend and buyback policy, when the share price is undervalued, IMO benefits all shareholders. Less shares for shorting and a tangible payout.
nod: dgduncan, that reads like a Government policy. In which case it must be legit. I've been in shares since 1981 (BP) and have never liked share buy-backs. I have never come out as a winner - the share price always falls significantly after a buy-back. I don't recall it happening for the first few decades but in the 2000's it has become increasingly popular, which means someone other than shareholders is making money out of it. That said, major shareholders with influence often go along with it (possibly a tax advantage for them or a way to transfer ownership). Buying back your own shares means you don't want to to return cash to shareholders by way of dividends. Nor, do you have any idea on how to invest the spare cash in improvements or acquisitions to make your business stronger. The only thing I'm certain of is that small shareholders lose out.
nod: The gripe of the new major shareholders was that awards were excessive and not aligned with shareholder performance. I'm happy if specific ambitious target prices are specified to justify a BONUS over and above a very large salary. I don't see any target share price on any of their awards. I only see a reward for longevity."The awards are structured as nil cost options over ordinary shares of no-par value.The awards will ordinarily become exercisable as from 1 March 2022, subject to the grantee's continued service and to the extent to which total shareholder return performance conditions are satisfied over the measurement period comprising the three financial years of the Company commencing with the current financial year.Once exercisable, an award shall ordinarily remain exercisable as to its vested shares until the eve of the tenth anniversary of the grant date of the awards."
nod: The PTEC fall is primarily on the decline in revenue from unregulated markets, notably China Malaysia. For many years it's been said that the unregulated revenues and profits were not reflected in the share price (market value) because of the high risk. So, during these years we benefit from a high dividend income. It seems perverse now that this Asian downturn is having such an impact on the share price when it was always valued at near zero. PTEC said in its recent results that in 2018 around 80% of its revenues will be from regulated markets. This % will rise further in 2019 when a full year with Snaitech kicks in. IMHO the market will value PTEC more fairly once we see this reflected in the numbers.
