bapodra_investments: The main question from a risk perspective is if the results are more likely than not to be positive then why is the share price not going up? It may be that there could be a long delay before any commercialisation/monetisation and the market realises this. We could see a spike on the day of the results and then a sharp move back down again very quickly. Positive results need to be translated into revenues/profits and what it means for Vela. That is when the share price can move upwards and stay up (sustainable). Yes Vela has excessive amount of shares (billions) but why is the share price not going up? By thinking in this way, one will not be disappointed if the share price does not behave like we anticipate. I am sure we all would like Vela's share price move upwards and stay upwards but we do not want to 'hope' it does or rely 'luck'. I am not sure when the trial results are announced that we will get any monetary numbers attached to it but there may be a line or two with something like, "Vela are now in talks with several partners in relation to commercialisation and will update the market once this is concluded' or something like that." In my view, patience, will still be required after the trial results are released and even if they are positive. This is just my personal opinion of course and I would be delighted if I was wrong as I want Vela's share price to move upwards and stay higher just like many of you.
bapodra_investments: Vela has enormous potential and as an investor for over four years this is most excited I have been about Vela. I am even coming around to Arcadia trials with some of the recent information I have seen. One of the main things holding Vela's share price appreciation back is the volume of shares but once this is overcome, it will fly upwards in my view. I just think due to the amount of shares in issue it is going to be more difficult and may take longer than investors would expect/like. I think it is just about being patient. As long as Vela does not go back down to 0.06p levels or even below then I am content with the current price behaviour under the circumstances. This and Blue Star Capital PLC are well positioned for a serious re-rate. BLU has invested £250,000 in NFT Investments which I think is a shrewd move. It also has exposure to five esports companies which no other UK listed company can provide such exposure. It is diversifying from the poor SatoshiPay investment. Vela has moved away from Crypto but has invested in Mode which is listed and makes its investment more liquid in terms of exiting. I think Vela will sell some shares in Mode when the price really appreciates in value. Right now Mode'a share price is around 48p which is below the IPO price of 50p.
bapodra_investments: smcl - Yes, I too hold in the millions here but I am looking at holding for the longer term. This is an investment rather than trading opportunity for me. I do not have a target long term as I think the potential is big if you have a longer term time horizon of 5-10 years. This is definitely multibagger potential. For the short to medium term I would expect anywhere from 0.1p to 0.2p or even higher depending on the news in June 2021. A lot will also depend on the share price of Mode, Kanabo and Cornerstone which are all UK listed companies. If those three were to experience serious share price growth, Vela's share price could see some real upward movement. Aeritech is an interesting one but one for the longer term but also has huge potential. In terms of price target I have none as I have experienced with Argo and KR1 that the share price performance annihilated any expectations I had by multiple amounts. I was fortunate to get in them really early and I would like to think I am in Vela very early too. I had to invest a lot recently to really bring my average down as I had invested a bit too early around 4 years ago at a higher price level but I am much closer to break even now as result of my recent investment at 0.08p. The key is not to sell too early. I was wise enough to hold ARB and KR1 to really appreciate the gains and I think there is more to come in 3-4 years time on both of those companies so it is all about 'Long Term Wealth Creation' and you do that by letting your winners run and not selling too early.
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: This is the not the price behaviour I wanted to see. So right now there are just more sellers than buyers. This needs to reverse until any sustainable rise in share price can be experienced. So the question I have is why the smart investors are not accumulating the shares in 'anticipation' of positive news in relation to SGS Capital and the trials? The answer may be that they are but due to the excessive (billions) of shares in issue, this is proving a serious drag on the share price. The share price is lower now than the two spikes in September and October/November. One could argue that Vela is in a far strong position now than it was back in September so why is the share price lower now? For me it is down to the supply of shares being greater than the demand for shares. In any price zone battle the buyers are not beating the sellers and hence the price cannot rise and stay up as the sellers are eventually winning out.
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.
