janeann: not quite the share price reaction I expected.

chadders: I'm keen to find out whether or not SPE is having any success in its chosen new target markets, particularly the financial sector. If so it could be a game changer. Anyone out there in financials involved in Accolade? Meanwhile I think we are vulnerable to a take over at the current share price which is still cheap in my opinion. A bit baffled by the 30% drop to the 360's after the finals, but pleased it presented buying opportunities. I'm a holder, strictly no advice intended.

meganxmas: ok thanks I get it ... I think with these instruments the decision to convert or take money lies with the loan note holder so highly likely to be conversion. at a converted sharecapital the effective market cap should really be adjusted upwards to where it is stated today on most sites ... assuming no movement in share price. I would agree that hope the company progresses such that will become not so relevant.

cfro: 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.

allstar4eva: Slap a pe of 20 on historical figures gets share price of £7 quid on diluted eps or £8.80 on basic eps. Either way far too cheap. Costs largely fixed from last year and revenue growing. Much of additional revenue going to bottom line. Lovely!

samsj: Regarding takeover, see my question on stockopedia. Did anyone ask the company about the DevFactory buying in 2015 and Eswcapital. I'm sure it's been discussed before but would appreciate any info. Also, as I understand Barry Mence owns AT LEAST 1.5 million of 7.5 million shares and he and directors were buying quite aggressively? Why would they do anything that risked tanking the share price? If I u derstand correctly they have considerable skin in the game, hence the postponing of the loan stock?

chadders: Entirely consistent, this is what I like about this company. Very professional and honest. Options are issued as an incentive so the company expects the share price to increase from here methinks.

pj 1: LOL very true Strangely janeann I find sharesmag articles rarely have any direct infuence on the share price short term, and they do have a fair share of losers. Med/long term though I wouldn't have a clue except they raraly report an average return >10%, if they beat the market at all? Its great for background/ research notes though

runthejoules: Ah, me topslicing, that's what's moved the share price back up again, you're welcome! I'm going to post this here with a recommendation that you get a subscription to Stockopedia yourself - there's any number of great tips that I've completely failed to capitalise on. And if anyone complains about me pasting it here I'll take it down. Sopheon (LON:SPE) Share price: 380p (+13%) No. shares: 7.4m Market cap: £28m Trading Update Posting this in response to reader request. Great news here: "...a strong performance in the second half of 2016, driven by a large number of license orders in the final quarter, including substantial activity with major enterprise customers. In addition to the effect of the stronger sales performance, the profitability of the business was further enhanced by cost efficiencies over the course of the year, and to a lesser extent by foreign exchange gains linked to the sharp fall in Sterling. As a consequence, the Board expects that reported revenues for the year ended 31 December 2016 will be in line with current market expectations. The Board also expects that, even when excluding the impact of the positive foreign exchange effects, EBITDA will be ahead, and pre-tax profits significantly ahead, of current market expectations." So to be absolutely clear, the good news today is due to margins and not sales. I haven't actually looked at this company before (it's great to engage with other investors, because you can get exposed to a lot more interesting ideas!) Anyway, I see that these shares have "multi-bagged" over the past year, rising from 60p. It's a software business, specialising in "Enterprise Innovation Management". Checking their website, I get the following summary: "Sopheon integrated Enterprise Innovation Performance solutions support everything you need for the entire innovation, new product development (NPD), and innovation governance lifecycle." And on the Introductory page for investors: Sopheon (LSE:SPE) is an international provider of software and services for product life cycle management. Our Accolade® solution supports strategic roadmapping, idea development, product portfolio management and the creation, commercialization and replacement of products. So that's reasonably clear, although without trying some of their software for yourself, or talking to staff, the company will inevitably feel like a black box as an investment. When investing in software, a basic test is the strength of cash flow - does the company generate real earnings, or is it capitalising too many of its expenses? Doing a quick test, I see that SPE capitalised £900k of development costs in H1, and amortised £1 million of intangibles (so that £1 million can be added back to net income, to arrive at operating cash flow). That looks like a fair match, and H1 in the previous year was also a fair match. Checking the final results for 2015, I see a similar positive pattern in terms of the match-up between development costs capitalised and intangibles amortised. So on an initial glance, I'd have good confidence in the earnings here. It ha a huge StockRank of 98, and looks worthy of further investigation.

trinko: Five of AIM's post-Brexit stars revealed By Andrew Hore | Fri, 30th September 2016 - 14:15 Long tail of companies Many, though, have been around a lot longer. Software company Sopheon (SPE) joined AIM in 1996 and the share price is nowhere near the heights of the tech boom or even its level ten years ago, but it is more than eight times the level it was at the beginning of 2015. One thing that this list does show is that companies that may have been written off as failures in the past because of their poor performance can redeem themselves. That may come from perseverance, like Futura, or by finding different assets, like SolGold and Sound Energy. The long tail of very small companies on AIM is often criticised but some of these companies do get a second wind and find a way of recovering a substantial part, or all, of their previous share price decline.
