ram...I have been told an interesting insight into today's financial institutions investment banking. A friend asked me too provide him with some companies I thought were worth investing in, he was due to see his financial adviser from a well known investment bank, which one is not important. I duly sent him a list of 10 companies. One of the companies I suggested was Carclo, the investment adviser said he was unable to recommend Carclo to clients, although, he said they were rated as high risk, he then stated held Carclo in his personal portfolio saying they were a great company, he duly purchased some for my friend. The point here is this, if Carclo are high risk in the eyes of financial advisers investment banks then what are probability, Carclo are heading for the Ftse 250, make a profit, pay a dividend, solid growth forecast, been trading for decades. My point is this, institutional invest are risk averse these days, that's why pension funds and other financial products are performing so badly they can't take risk, and they certainly wouldn't take a risk with probability. Still holding, lets hope for some good news soon.

Ram, Interesting point. Given Hills are in the middle of paying PTEC off it would suggest that they would be free to make an approach after this. Suggests picking up more at this price could be a wise move

TrentEndBoy, it wasn't that WMH didn't like PBTY, it was that PTEC blocked the move, as was its right under the online jv agreement. It would be interesting to know why PTEC took that stance.

Then we have the social side of things - a bit of an unknown quantity and I wonder what, if anything, PBTY have planned? I've read that doubledown casino is taking well over £1m in revenue every single day from their facebook offering. Incredible. Even more incredible, considering they don't have any real money games, so don't ever have to pay out! Would be nice to have even a small slice of that pie :)

I think the management are doing a great job here, but that the UK has not been the ideal market for mobile slots, hence the slow progress up until now. Rather than making the company a lot of money, the UK B2C offering has been important for creating the technology, giving them the vital know-how and experience. Basically, there have been two problems thus far - firstly, slow mobile web speeds and expensive data costs. Must have restricted growth a lot, but is becoming much less of a problem. With 4G, there should be a step-change in the quality of the slots they can offer, which is going to be important. On top of that, the historically small size of mobile screens has not given UK players the type of playing experience that they expect from a slot machine game. Traditionally, UK pub bandit style machines are huge boxes, with lots of different features, that can't be translated to the small screen. Newer UK casino slots are more easily translated to mobile - they are Vegas-style video slots, but again, still not perfect because people play them for entertainment and the small screens don't give a particularly entertaining experience. Lately, bigger screen have become the norm and tablets are becoming very popular too - this is huge, because those Vegas-style slots translate really well onto tablet screens. I'm much more optimistic about the Italian B2C market - traditional Italian slots are very simple fruit machines, with hardly any features compared to UK games, so should, imo, translate really well onto mobile and even onto smaller screen.

I'd say that the part of the company I am least interested in is the UK-facing Lady Luck casino. I'm much more interested in the B2B business and the prospects for the new Italian-facing ventures.

This is why, when PBTY moves it really moves (up or down to be fair). They should reach breakeven and then move quickly into profits (and dividend payments). I still wonder what William Hills did not like about PBTY and whether others are looking to take them out cheaply. Smart phones saved PBTY and they need to capitalise quick on any first mover advantage (which is running out) I have a large holding here and think we should see £1 at some point this year. The Italian deal is a game changer imo.

beeezzz, I'm not looking for an argument, just stating a fact. Your assumption on nom accounts is incorrect. Many instit stakes are held in such accounts for all sorts of reasons. PBTY's two largest holders are ICAP founder Michael Spencer's investment company, and renowned investor and the 7th wealthiest individual in Britain, Joe Lewis. Then we have Leo, Foresight, Guild ie Trevor Hemmings, Al Nasr Group, UBS Wealth Mngt, Hargreave Hale, Citigroup, and Smith and Williamson amongst others. And remember that the Playoo owners recently decided to take shares rather than cash for the bulk of their payment. With the founder joining the PBTY board. And then there's Charles' and any other management stakes. So, all in all, an exceptionally strong shareholder base!

PBTY is very risky, imo, but has decent technology and good potential. Personally, I think that 2013 will the year that PBTY finally gain the critical mass they require - I expect that to happen in H2 and reflected in the trading update this time next year. Wake me up again in 2014 :)

beeezzz, I'm not debating whether the AIM market is risky, or how it has performed. My point was that your definitive statement that "only" dividend paying companies see their share price rise is absolutely incorrect.

I notice that Ram has not got back to me regarding the massive holdings by institutions..!!! the analyst....yes that's one, maybe you could let us know how the AIM market has faired over the last 3 years compared let say with ftse all share index, which I might add effects all stocks, I've got IQE and they faired reasonably I also own CAR and DIA which if you look at the charts have done considerably better. Your right, so far off the radar nobodies taking any notice. Anyway livens up this otherwise very dull BB. I must I do still hold this stock, for better or worse that the ?

Update today looks good The growth in the B2C market looks promising, with total B2B revenues being 207% higher than the same period last year :) I wonder how much money the company made from producing '50 shades of santa'? - seems to be a lot of emphasis on that in the statement I'd like to have seen bigger increases in the consumer market growth, I was hoping to see more than an 18% increase in deposits. However, I'm pleased to see record deposits were made in December. Other than that, it's just a case of wait and see what revenue comes in from the Italian customers as the year progresses. Very early days on that one.

beeezzz also states: "In these markets only dividend paying companies see their share price rise, you can't make a cent anywhere else." Again, this is not true. Most companies on AIM do not pay a dividend and there are plenty of examples of share prices rising throughout 2012 an into 2013. One of my favourite examples being LOQ.

Another upbeat trading statement. Can't see this company staying independent long has to be taken over by one of the big boys, tech too good.

ram....Well you maybe right, however, my assumption on Nominee accounts are that these are held by PI's as in Hargreaves Lansdowne Nominees, etc etc so don't be too sure institutions hold them, Management maybe. I'm still waiting to be excited.

blue... Maybe as you get old you have less time to wait, as they say you should at least allow a 5 year time frame when investing. Maybe I should move on...I'll wait too see what he has to say.
