microscope: Might take a bit longer than you think on profits of 17k :)) IQE (I don't hold) has a market cap of 1.3 billion, made interim profit of 10 million, and is still on AIM..... As you know i'm a big WEY fan, love the niche and think there's a vast exploitable market for WEY, but I think the share price is for now symptomatic of the mini-bubble AIM is experiencing - a lot of goodwill is built into a lot of prices right now. But the trend, as with WEY, is still definitely positive and hopefully the share price has a bit more to come short term. Which is all great. However i hold LTG but not sure how long its market cap in the hundreds of millions can be justified. Ride the wave but be prepared to react quickly (something I didn't do in the last AIM bubble) when the tide turns, as it will as the realities of Brexit loom ever closer. The weak pound is actually underpinning FTSE 100 ironically (though not the 250) and if WEY can get a foothold in Europe in the next 18 months can benefit them eventually too. But for the sort of growth to move to the main market, there will have to be many more placings and acquisitions. Anyway enough of my market ramblings, looking forward with excitement to find out who the 'Target' is.
bones: To be fair to WEY, as David Massie explains, the number of shares in retail hands is tiny with the top five 3%+ shareholders being 82% of the pre-raise shares. The admin and legal costs of conducting an open offer would probably have eaten up the money raised from the small rump of retail.The bigger question is the discount. Again, the only defence I can think of is that the discussions were probably started weeks ago when the share price was in the 20p region and raising price was possibly going to be lower than that. It could be that many of the institutions had already been approached and that getting 22p was a result. Whereas in the last two weeks the price has run away a bit, possibly due to the small float in the market. I can see why it would have difficult to change the price again.That all being said, given that the raise was oversubscribed and scaled back, the company could have had a pop at a higher price. Perhaps they did not want to "gazump" what are hoped to be loyal future shareholders.Overall, given that WEY are small, raising £5m is a big deal indeed so on balance I am happy with the outcome.
666james: Off out for most of the day so look after the share price for me !!
netcurtains: woops we've broke the stock market. Sorry about that
gr1982: net - I haven't sold any and those kind of retracements don't bother me. I'm in this for the long term and the story hasnt changed. I spoke to mg yesterday to discuss WEY too and he's v bullish and hasn't sold either. If you keep checking the share price daily you'll stress yourselves out GLA Grant
microscope: As I have an interest in both, perhaps i can offer some balance. At this stage it's a bit like comparing Tesco to the corner shop, one has a 250 million market cap (ball park, not sure exactly but huge, the other under 20 million) but that is in no way to knock Wey, who have developed a nice business in a niche area and have exciting growth potential both in the UK and beyond. As to whether it would be a target. Yes at some stage, but not yet, would be my take. I was in RWS (same management as LTG) for some years before taking an interest in LTG. So I'd like to think I have some grasp on the sort of acquisitions that management like to make. Andrew Brode lets companies do the donkey work, and build their marketplace and infrastructure, and usually (NetDimensions one obvious exception) they have at the very least 2-3 year record of profit history and growth before he makes his move. So i think this would be a nice bolt-on, but not yet. Brode is in his late 70s now, but Satchell at LTG is something of a chip off the old block, and the two gel together very well. Just my 2p. (Speaking of which, Wey was 3p early this year, so the share price was actually up about 800% on the year at one stage - pullback hardly surprising!
aimingupward2: WEY looks, at fist glance anyway, to be a loss making tiddler compared to LTG. Maybe it has the greater long term potential of the two, but there is no reason that I can see to firmly believe so at present - is there? The share price movements over the past 8-10 weeks have been in marked contrast to one another so there's no doubt which has been the better investment recently.
netcurtains: what this share price needs is probably a marketing campaign by WEY post results. ... Give it a bit of a higher profile. They have the money. The problem is , even though its going great, investors do not understand the business model very well as there are ZERO other UK based companies in this sector. Loads of PRIVATE companies but none quoted apart from WEY. Investors need to SEE the ADVERTS and then we'll get noticed more... Its a WIN WIN situation - more investors and more students. The IT systems are now geared for MASSIVE RISES in students. next stage - BIG ADVERTS Ideally REALLY big adverts please!
netcurtains: Woodcutter: You've probably missed off a part of the "word of mouth". Since WEY share price has increased probably hundreds if not thousands of new people have now heard of WEY (investors). In a sense the company has already reached a "tipping point" in the numbers of people in the UK investing community who have heard of it. The next tipping point is for TEENAGERS on WHATSAPP and SNAPCHAT to talk about it. The demand is going to come mainly from TEENAGERS themselves.
bones: QS99, I believe people said the same about ASOS in its early days when it was a few pennies in share price. Now about £60 each.Hard to judge the long term share price of a company in its early stages when growth could be huge over time.Sure, there may be a reaction to the downside short term so agreed that an opportunity to accumulate may arise. This is though the kind of share to hold given the narrow market in AIM.All IMHO.
