Had a go here in late November last year and it did absolutely nothing - pretty much killed all price activity here. Sorry folks :-) So the price is yet to make a significant move in three months, that despite a solid enough statement yesterday with nothing untoward. The market is clearly happy to continue to trade in within a small range. However, as pointed out by Spooky and Baracuda2, someone has got the mop out and swept up 2.09m and 1.5m at 28p today as well as some delayed mop prints of 2m at 28p and a 1m exchange at 29.15p. It is notable volume for SNWS, but it still doesn't appear to be moving the dial, with sellers still covering off the 30p mark initially for a go at that key resistance around 31p. Surely the market is watching to see if the mop comes out again and then for a possible break of those key levels. But will the big mop come out? All imo DYOR

You can't invest purely on PE as you know. IMO its a question of whether they start to reduce the debt. If they can start to do that the shares will adjust higher, if not it will be more difficult. I suspect the market just needs a couple more sets of figures to reassure themselves about execution.

Does anybody have any other figures for "market expectations"? The FT.com site has one analyst expecting EPS of 9.2p in 2021 and 9.8p in 2022. If correct, this share is on a very low PER. The £15m expected from Tuffnells next year will help reduce the debt. Of course, the biggest contributor to debt reduction will continue to be high EBITDA (even if we ignore the dubious version of "Adjusted EBITDA" - such games makes the managers look amatuer. Are bonuses dependent on "Adjusted EBITDA" I wonder).

Positive update - Tuffnells problems removed - debt reducing, making money and recovering - what's not to like? - I bought some more - just waiting for more people to do the same!

Amazing – they have stuck to delivering stuff without any distractions and they have made money! It's a pity the old management pi55ed away a ton of money on non-core activities. Any sign that this team wants to diversify, and everyone should sell up. In the meantime, yes – a reasonable update.

I am delighted at the big votes against share placings at the current give away share prices. Disapplying pre-emption rights should be illegal. I have never known it to be in my best interests.

Bought some more today - seems unloved - not many people taking notice of the likely improvement in profitability following the sale of Tuffnells. I have a large loss on my original holding but think there may be a rapid recovery once people start to see the profit benefits in ditching Tuffers

Noted a delayed 780k buy print announced this morning, significant for this company. It is from yesterday just after the close. Clearly buyers in size about. Is that enough to crack that key 30p mark? On the whole, it is getting quieter out there now and the explosive moves are fewer and far between. A little bit of selling about in some of the technically overbought plays. but markets on the whole are very resilient atm. They're not wanting to give anything back even being overbought. Is there a Santa rally to follow or is it already baked in and not alot happens this time around either way.

Around 40p is the next target - the level it spent most of 2019 at.

Taken a few here, continuing to trend higher and it appears too cheap. Watch that 30p mark. If that goes, it should really push on to retest those pre-crisis levels around 35p.

Am I right in thinking if we deduct the exceptional/non-underlying item of "network and reorganisation cost £6.8m", because they are regular items of expenditure rather than one-offs, from "Profit for the year from continuing operations" then the true underlying profit after tax is around £17m? If so, the MCap of £69m seems low?

Lots of smallish trades going through - I suspect it might just be thrill seekers hoping off to look for more excitement elsewhere.
