Very crude, but 4.5p per share would be the same rating in terms of AUM as AFH Financial...ie 50% up...

I can't explain the 780k of sells either, but on the other hand there were 520k of buys - I know because trade 7 at 3.2p was another top up from me. In fact the real spread was narrower today and the only people being ripped off were the sellers (going on previous day's buy prices). My take is that the company is still unproven in most investors' eyes. After all, I would never have heard of it but for one or two dedicated posters such as GHF!

I am either missing something fundamental regarding Tavi or this company has no value at all. Today we have a director deal and 780k down volume. The results were very encouraging, management keep buying more and the disposal of Financial clears unproductive revenues. Overall Tavi is looking like a cleaner deal that should report good profits in the next financial year should assets not drop off a cliff. With the promise of a dividend to come there should be no reason why this is not valued closer to its peers, over 40m market cap This leads to me to 3 conclusions: either that unhappy director is still selling shares, the spread is so wide the market maker is enjoying ripping everyone off and/or the broker is doing a horrible job. Worst part is that the current market cap is probably a combination of all these, either that or like I said this company has no value. Anyone care to clear my thoughts?

I also think they could do with decent brokers now. IMHO Allenby failed miserably with the Dec 2016 placing. Initially 4p price was mooted & they eventually only got it away at 3p. The likes of finnCap, Cenkos, Singers or Liberum would be a better bet at this point in their lifecycle. Kind regards, GHF

Yet another excellent post origami (post 1022). Also perplexed at shareprice retreating from the 4p range on release of results, especially following the positive announcement concerning the sale of Financial Ltd & Brian Ravens purchase declaration which provides further confidence. I've added a further 250k this morning. Kind regards GHF

A small purchase which adds to his considerable holding. Once again why would you add to your holding for £10,000 if you didn't think they were good value.

Skin in the game: Tavistock Investments Plc ("Tavistock" or the "Company"), the financial services group, announces that the Company's Chief Executive, Brian Raven, yesterday made a market purchase of 308,000 shares of 1p each in the capital of the Company at a price of 3.25p per share. Following this purchase, Mr Raven is interested in 63,527,379 ordinary shares of 1p each representing 11.83 per cent. of the issued share capital of the Company. In addition, he holds performance related options over an aggregate total of 11,600,000 shares with an exercise price of 5.25p per share.

The last broker price target I can see was WH Ireland last year who gave Tavistock a 14p target, maybe they should become brokers..??

If we stay at this lowly market cap/aum maybe we will get consolidated rather than the other way round.....!!

When Tavistock bought Financial Limited it was the remnants of a bombed out network. The acquisition bought a clean sweep of systems and controls and a set of member firms. On acquisition Financial Limited had lost a number of members, high quality members to other networks or advisory firms. Therefore the quality of advisers left were not top notch. Having used the systems and controls TAVI attracted 39 member firms into the part of the business where they could be bought out in the future. The acquisition of Financial Limited appears expensive given the sale price but all the clean compliance structure was worth it. The business sold to Sanlam is the dross which is left - These businesses had two opportunities to amortize value and couldn't do so. I suspect they are small IFAs with shrinking client banks and clients invested in small pension pots with GARs. The cost of maintaining these is not worth it. It is 1M in bank for something which brings turnover (vanity) rather than profit (sanity). An excellent disposal. Why the market has reacted negatively I do not know. Hopefully we will have a broker report giving an indication of future earnings and potential for a dividend.

Spread back to being ludicrous, so I won't be buying any more just yet. This really is a tiddler....

No note yet from Allenby, hence the need for a higher market profile/pr.........or new broker!

Yes looking back there was a flurry on Tuesday but it's interesting how small the amounts involved were. I can see about a million shares in all bought at 4p or above which is only £40k out of a market cap of £17m. It was very difficult to buy, in fact. I was fortunate that I was forced to wait until the froth came off to buy 50k at 3.8p and by Thursday was able to buy another 100k at 3.48p. Now up to 350k in all but that's only 0.07% of the company and I bet others have a lot more!

With a market Cap of less than 20M the best way for institutions to buy in is with fund raising. The spread as shown is 3.25 to 3.75. It is very hard for an institution to build a position from here. A road show would only really help in this situation. If you invested at 2p during the fund raise to buy Financial Network then you may have a position as there were loads of shares floating about. The Directors and related parties hold a large number of shares. I would be interested to know how many holders have say 500000 or more shares. When the RNS was released there was a flurry of buys at 4.25p. I wonder if the rest of the week is gap filling down to the pre RNS price for a steady build back above 4p.

Value is a matter of perception whereas price is a matter of supply and demand. When a good company's share price goes nowhere because of limited demand from existing shareholders (no one has a bottomless pocket)it is time for the company to go for a charm offensive, such as a road show to a wider investor audience. A good broker would be able to market the shares to reputable institutions and push up the share price.
