bapodra_investments: Penny - Not quite. Portfolio Allocation. Vela will have one and it will be more measured than many will appreciate based on their risk management. This will determine how much they invest in each company and how much it accounts for in their portfolio. They will occasionally need to balance their portfolio. Vela will most probably invest a portion of their total funds in startups with the promise of generating high returns on their investments. So unlisted private companies which are start ups or young growth companies. These can take anywhere from 3-7 years to generate significant uplift in valuations. One of the biggest risks Vela will face is liquidity risk here. Also Vela will support these companies towards that liquidity event where maximum value can be gained for Vela's shareholders. Vela have changed their strategy so that there is a better balance and they are now investing in listed companies whose share price is key to Vela's performance in those companies. Here Vela can sell their shares for a profit more easily and generate revenue to potentially invest in other companies within the portfolio and for working capital. In my experience, Vela, is likely to invest smaller amounts initially into unlisted companies with a view to investing further in future rounds. For example Vela's risk management strategy maybe that no one company can be more than 15% of its overall portfolio. Capital allocation is a crucial strategy and I have very little doubt that Vela will have one. Vela is a hybrid model of a VC fund and it will have a capital/portfolio allocation strategy. The one key thing you are missing in the example you gave is that if MODE's share price went up, Vela's share price would not necessarily go up unless Vela's shares are purchased. The market does not always work on logic, fundamentals and on many occasions there is a disconnect between what the valuation should be and what it is due to the simple demand/supply of shares. The opposite is true and sentiment can drive a share price where it may not be supported by the valuation.
bapodra_investments: bullrun1 - I am confident that Vela's share price next year and in the coming years will be far more higher. Any rise needs to be sustainable. Value will be unlocked in time. I think shorter term it is more important that Vela does not go back to lower levels such as 0.06p or below. We know what stake Vela has in the companies it has invested in. What would be really interesting/useful would be what percentage they represent in Vela's portfolio. So for example how much does SGS Capital, Mode, Kanabo, Aeritech, etc. account for in percentage terms in Vela's portfolio. Hypothetically, lets assume Mode accounted for only 1% of Vela's portfolio. Mode would have to multibag for it to have any significant impact on Vela's share price. If SGS for example accounted for 40% of Vela's portfolio, any valuation uplift potential could be reflected more aggressively on Vela's share price. Does anyone have these details by any chance?
bapodra_investments: I think Vela can still succeed without positive trial results. Lets assume worse case scenario of there being a delay in the results or they are not as positive as expected, or even that further testing is required, etc, etc. If it played out like this then yes Vela's share price may spike upwards short term and those who are traders would sell, profit and the share price would come back down sharply. I see Vela's share price increasing gradually over a longer period of time with or without success in the COVID trials. I accept that if results are positive, regardless of whether at that point Vela benefits financially, it will increase the valuation of the investment and it could see positive momentum in the share price. This could well happen in the next few weeks/months, I myself do not know. At this stage, I am bullish/positive for Vela more longer term. My timescale is minimum 1 year and looking at the next 5 years or so. I see Vela's share price a lot higher and this is a potential multibagger in the making if its investments perform as expected. Even if one of them is a dud, I still see significant growth in the share price ahead.
bapodra_investments: Dorset - I agree with your points apart from 125m shares traded which is quite high for Vela. I have been a shareholder for around 4 years in Vela and I have seen daily shares traded far higher than £125m. Anyway have a look at the link below which is from a credible source - London Stock Exchange. It is the 3rd tab - 'Trade Recap'. If you scroll down you will see charts for 'Trades Monthly', 'Trades Daily', 'Value Monthly', 'Value Daily', 'Volume Monthly' and 'Volume Daily'. Now the trades monthly and daily are self explanatory. You can clearly see what is happening. On both of these there is a decline. When you get to value monthly and daily there is also a decline. Guess what it is the same trend/pattern for volume monthly and daily. Now the above is with the backdrop of James Normand, Vela making some really exciting investments and getting rid of the so called deadwood apart from Argo where I believe shareholders would have benefited significantly as the valuation of Vela's investment would have gone up. JN could have sold at over £3.00 or even now and Vela and its shareholders would have benefited massively. This is regardless of whether investors in Vela feel Argo was a good investment or not. Share price is king. The above is also on the backdrop of this SGS Capital and potentially positive trials and the excitement I am seeing from some on this board. With all that and more, the above is what it is and we have to be realistic and manage expectations. If the price went down from current levels, what would that tell potential new investors? I am bullish longer term for Vela but I think some of these unlisted investments are going to take a few years to come to fruition. I think JN may sell some of the listed investments for profits when he gets the opportunities so that Vela can report yearly revenues and profits in its financials every year. I think Vela are going in the right direction but this is going to be a slow and painful journey for investors and I think this is a buy and hold for many years and the positive results will come. We are all early to the party and it is only just sending its invites out to the guests! The party has not started yet.
bapodra_investments: Penny - No worries. I think Vela has seen it's bottom! If it has not then I will have to accept I was wrong on Vela. I am confident that the new investments can increase in valuation and in due to course translate into Vela's share price. Right now the number of shares (billions) in issue is proving to be a major drag on the share price. Apparently news is due at the end of March or start of April on the trials in relation to the SGS Capital investment so if the posters who suggested this are right then some news/updates will be due soon and we will hopefully know if this is going to drive the share price upwards or not. I personally am not sure on this particular investment so I am going to treat the positive news as a welcome bonus. The only concern is if any update is wishy washy or not positive, what impact that could have on Vela's share price? Could it go any lower? We are about to find out in the coming weeks. My experience of AIM is that buying occurs prior to the positive news being released as investors/traders come in 'anticipation' prior to the news. I have seen this so many times on AIM listed shares that I have lost count. So if there really is positive news then I would expect buying to commence shortly driving the share price up. If not, I would be asking why not?
bapodra_investments: Mode is hovering around 57p. However Kanabo is down by around 5% at the moment. What is interesting is that Kanabo share price was driven above 50p and that would have suckered investors in that are simply jumping on the bandwagon. Kanabo has since declined by about 50% from its high with investors nursing large losses in a short space of time. Vela were shrewd enough to sell a stake for a profit which more or less covers their initial stake for a free run and totally de-risking that investment. Vela most probably knew / predicted what was likely to happen and capitalised by taking some profits very quickly indeed. The share price does not always react to the fundamental strengths of the company and at times there is a disconnect between the share price and how the company is actually doing. For me Kanabo may well operate in a huge market with enormous potential but price action is king and the Kanabo share price rose and then declined by 50%. The price data is there for all to see. Vela were smart enough to benefit from this rise prior to the 50% decline and well done to Vela for doing so.
bapodra_investments: There are some key bits which have been announced by Mode Global Holdings PLC recently. So the first thing is that it has officially launched on Android. Some of you will be aware that Mode's app is already available on Apple's iStore. It also announced that its Bitcoin trading volumes on the Mode platform had increased by 130% month on month. This is positive news. I think these customers will not necessary be professional Bitcoin traders but those who want to 'dabble' and 'experiment' as the fees on Coinbase Pro and other professional BTC trading platforms are a lot lower than Mode. I am really interested to see how Mode's 'Bitcoin Jar' does and is received by its customers/media and wider market. Customers have grown around 500% from August to December. Mode have stated that is enjoyed another recording breaking months with Bitcoin volumes 130% when you compare the numbers with December. I think (please don't quote me on this) Mode have grown arounds 110% month on month which is a really solid start. Now as a result of this I would expect the Vela share price to increase and increase it did. It will be slow due to the gigantic volume of shares but with Vela's other interests making the news it was a bullish sign for Vela.
bapodra_investments: With BTC inching towards $40k if it makes new ATH's over the weekend and into Monday then it could lead to Mode's share price continuing upwards. We know that Mode's share price hit around 77p when BTC was last making such moves. It will be interesting to see if this pattern repeats itself. I am anticipating it will but the price action will confirm my anticipation. So in my view, there are two main drivers for Mode's share price appreciation in the short to medium term. One is BTC's price being bullish and the other is news flow in the sense of positive developments/announcements. These two could drive the share price of Mode upwards. What I am interested in seeing through 'confirmation' is whether/how this translates into Vela's share price. I would like to see a rising Mode share price push up Vela's share price and that is what I will be keeping an eye on.
bapodra_investments: Steady - Yes I acknowledge that trial results if they were positive could drive up the share price in a single day. In reality, AIM shares will react prior to the news being released and then potentially on the day and then you find the share price going back down again as profits are taken and new investors end up investing at the higher price. I am not saying that will happen but it can. Steady - I also acknowledge that the share price can come right back down in a day too. I have been investing in AIM shares for the past 20 years so I have seen this time and time again and am basing this on my experience rather than my thoughts. For me, I would like to see a concerted effort on any share price rise over time rather than rely on one day. If you are an investor and invested before SGS, then surely you do not just want to rely on one or two days? You want a gradual share price rise. Don't forget there are billions of shares for Vela.
bapodra_investments: No worries SMCL. Although Argo has the word Blockchain in the company name it is basically a Bitcoin and Crypto miner. Think of a gold mining company and what happens to it when the gold price is going up. Argo can be seen in a similar way. Just like gold mining companies can be a leveraged play on the gold price, Argo, is potentially a leveraged play on the BTC price. Vela's exposure to Blockchain has all but diminished after the sale of BlockchainK2 which to be fair, Vela, sold at a reasonable price to minimise losses. It actually reported a profit due to accounting procedures/rules. Mode have given the indication on a recent presentation that I watched that they are due to make some exciting announcements in the coming months. I look forward to these announcements. Whether they lead the price of Vela or in fact even Mode itself, to go up only time will tell. The one thing I will not say specifically for Vela is that this news or this announcement will lead to the price rising. It does not always work like that. The current Vela price is already looking six months ahead into the future. If you are aware of 'Discounting Mechanism' and how the market prices the shares based on present and even potential future events then you will be appreciate my viewpoint more. You do not have to agree with me. The one thing I do agree is that patience will be required as until the assets rise in value that Vela has invested in and this translates into demand for its shares thus an increase in the share price, I do not expect a significant increase in the share price. We could be taking several months if not over a year to even really get going. So the one thing I do agree on is patience will be required due to the reason I have provided. In order for demand for the shares to increase, investor psychology, sentiment and interest in the company will have to increase. There is no guarantee any of these will happen but they must for the demand to appear for the shares. This takes time and that is why patience is required.
