andywillz: @jeffian I actually bought in because i really liked the cashless technology side of the business. however i sold because i think my money can grow better in the medium term elsewhere. VNET will be on my watchlist because if the price keeps dropping, as i suspect it will, I can buy back in at a bargain price and hold for the long :)
essential: Can't buy any online but put an order in to sell all of my holding and a price was returned immediately. Interesting
tole: Earlier buys at 67p above the current offer price of 66p at the time
jonwig: Citywire does have an article, but I wouldn't recommend clicking on that link! Who’s trading? Citywire AAA-rated Ken Wotton and Brendan Gulston The trade: Gresham House’s small cap experts pared their stakes in vending machine business Vianet from just over 13% of shares to 12.9%. How have the shares performed? The stock surged from 116p in early October to an all-time high of 168p in December, before falling back to 132p in last week’s stock market sell-off. What does the company say? The business reported ‘very strong’ recent growth following the award of three contracts worth a total £10m last summer. Revenue climbed 7.7% in the year to last March, to £15.6m, with pre-tax profit up 29.8% at £2.6m. What’s the outlook? Broker analyst Arden Partners holds the company at a price target of 185p. Gulston last year described the business as a ‘hidden gem’, having delivered 12 years of ‘strong income’. ‘Vianet is a classic example of a mature smaller company operating in niche spaces,’ he added.
galeforce1: king wizard - VNET is very illiquid, and it doesn't take much buying or selling to push the price up and down quite fast. But when things stabilise (and who know when that will be) we should see some institutional buying into any weakness.
thomshrike: Hearing that: (i) the share price decline is retail-led (not institutional). (ii) the company has not seen any impact from the coronavirus situation, either in client behavior or in the ability to deliver their products (as they have excess inventories for situations where there could be disruptions in supplies of components). It is important to remember that the company manufactures/assembles their products exclusively in the UK. As such, it seems panic-related only and certainly overdone.
zoolook: Not come across treasury shares being sold back on the market. Did they do a buyback at some point? - if so at what price?. I guess it’s also a type of dilution as most would expect treasury shares to be cancelled at some point. Be interested in views on this.
galeforce1: panshanger - I don't think there's any reason to think that Lord Lee has sold out of Vianet. I just think he has focused on other shares in recent articles, like Charles Taylor Group and Tarsus. I think we just have to be patient and he will write about them in some future article. Great to see the share price rising quite fast. Small volume, though. If a serious seller appears it could reverse quite quickly. Hopefully that won't happen.
galeforce1: The share price is creeping up slowly but nicely. But there's still not a lot of volume and the buy/sell spread is still pretty big.
galeforce1: jeffian - definitely flies below the radar. But on Friday there was an interesting commentary about Vianet on Stockopedia's Small Cap Value Report, which I have copied below in case you haven't seen it. It's very positive, although critical of the company's website which makes it difficult to understand what the company actually does. I agree with this. It took me a while to grasp that 'Smartzones' is the pub measuring business (which is non-growth) and 'Smart Machines' is the vending machine monitoring business (where there is 40% annual revenue growth and loads of potential). Vianet (LON:VNET) Share price: 137p (+3%) No. of shares: 28.5 million Market cap: £39 million Trading Update (Tuesday) This is a "provider of actionable data and business insight through devices connected to its Internet of Things ("IOT") platform". This PLC has been around for a while - since 2006. At its heart is the Brulines business, which records the volume of liquid that passes through beer lines. Trading in H1 is in line with expectations. CEO comment The team has continued to make very good commercial progress, particularly with contract wins for our telemetry and payment solutions in the coffee vending and unattended retail vending market, with solid support from our Smart Zones business which is developing new revenue lines. Double digit growth in the period builds on our successful recent track record and further demonstrates that the strategy of leveraging the power of our cutting edge technology to bring game changing business insight to our customers has exciting prospects." My view I've just spent some time on the company's website and checking its most recent annual report. I'm very excited by what I've read. See its investor relations website. I wanted to remind myself which of its divisions did the beer monitoring, which I understood to be the activity responsible for most of its historical (and present?) profitability. I was presented with two divisions: Smart Machines and Smart Zones. Smart Machines: 5db30e6decc74VNET_20191025.PNG Hmm. Where's the beer monitoring? Maybe it's in Smart Zones: 5db30ebe8af40VNET_20191025_SM.PNG Cloud-based, big data in the Internet of Things. Sounds like the perfect investment, doesn't it? There is a reference to flow monitoring in the description of Smart Machines, so I guess this must be it. Ah yes, iDraught: 5db30f5d361faVNET_20191025_id.PNG Another investor keyword: "ecosytem". So Vianet provides cloud-based, Big Data ecosystems in the Internet of Things. That's almost everything that I'm looking for in an investment, but I also look for "software as a service". Alas, I could find no reference to "Saas" on Vianet's website. It took a little bit of digging but, thankfully, I was able to find a reference to SaaS on Its "Statement of Compliance with the Corporate Governance Code", published last year, dutifully informs us that the company's Directors have the necessary "skills and experience, including in the areas of IOT, b2b, software as a service..." Boom! Vianet makes cloud-based, Big Data, software-as-a-service ecosystems in the Internet of Things. If only it could apply itself to a hot sector like crypto or cannabis, then who could resist investing in it? My actual view Vianet looks fairly valued at 14x forward earnings: it has a stable beer monitoring business which is performing ok (even though pubs in general are doing poorly) and other activities which are growing more quickly from a low base. "Smart Machines" (the growing part of the business) made PBT of nearly £1 million last year. Excluding the acquisition it made, profits in this division were £560k and revenue growth was 42%. Has potential.
