|Monty. Glad I read this bulletin board as I hold SPE. I held KNOS a while back but looking at results I may well buy back Monday!They were no longer on my radar..|
|My two biggest winners Micro Focus up 400% and Sopheon up 90%. I think I found the next one to at least double, Kainos Group around 242p even pays a dividend.|
|Also company seem to have suggested earnings will be low to brokers, hoping to employ a lot of people and still wanting to stay ahead of it. I think that caused many to take profits, calling it well short term. Longer term looks like a winner though.|
|Yes i think it is fair to ignore those. $64m in tax losses still to use for instance.|
|Your PE of 8 only holds true if you ignore a number of significant matters:
1. The effect of the loan conversion. Conversion would increase the share count by 35%.
2. The $1,275k income tax credit. If you change the tax credit to a 15% charge, then the reported basic EPS of 59.05 US cents drops to 34.8 cents.
3. The capitalisation of software development costs.|
|I would sure hope that if any takeover did come it would be at a massive premium yes. Cant see Barry excepting anything that undervalues the company.|
|cfro, If a takeover bid would come what premium you expect? I think that a premium of 100% Barry would not except. And he is the one with the best cards|
|The share price weakness since the last results has been puzzling. At this current price we are now talking of an historic per of around eight and that is let alone any forward looking PER which is almost certainly lower still.
I guess we will have to wait for the next trading update to find out how things are going but if you want my opinion the more the share price languishes down at these levels, then the more exposed the company is to a takeover.
We have talked about a potential takeover here for a fair while now but it is more likely to happen than ever before if the market doesnt rate the company properly.|

|Something to read
|Followed the CEO's lead and bought a few more this afternoon.|
|He didn't think 1,447,576 shares out of 7.37m was enough. He wanted 5,000 more. The question is, why? Really interesting. Perhaps just his ISA allowance?|
|Great to see the CEO and his wife buying more shares. They obviously think the company is still undervalued.|
|and a directors followed suit ; small amount but stillpositive|

|Hello samsj PIs that say the stock price wouldn't go up the next 3 months, could be wright. The same was last year!!! But from june until august it rose +- 400% (90p-350p). So they could be wright. But maybe, it will go gradually now.
In my opinion it is still undervalued after these strong set of numbers
We will see.
|Ok cheers. My point was rather: I had seen several PIs saying they were worried the price wouldn't go up next 3 months; saw one PI saying the share price had gone up 600% and so was overpriced... And at same time a director is putting more shares away for his grandkids than most pis would dare buy for liquidity fears. Was suggesting if some bought stock fit for their grandkids they wouldn't d*ck around and sent the share price up and down 10% every day.
That was my gist but was looking at a few things at once this morning and didn't write so well!|
|Samsj, no probs with your view at all, just surprised by your first post today which seemed to me to be a blatant deramp. Obviously not if you're a holder and appreciate your subsequent posts. Good luck.|
|Very interesting post samsj, thnks.
I agree. I think quite a few of us have been saying for some time now that a takeover is likely here. Probably in all likelyhood to be Stateside too given the near 100% uplift in US profits.
Personally i don't think the market is valuing the company properly at all and so a low valuation make the probability of a takeover at some point all the more likely.|

My personal financial position? I'm a holder.|
|Something else I think deserves a mention:
US profit before tax 2016: 4,072,000
US profit before tax 2015: 2,703,000|
|I see it all as a sign of confidence in the business and this coupled with their history of under promising and over delivering bodes well. Not to mention a product and business model that is delivering at an accelerated rate. For the avoidance of doubt, I'm a holder and no advice intended.
Just out of interest what's your position samsj?|
