Jeffoto, agree with you I think the two key points are confidence and stability. Confidence relies on filling up the capacity we have in the sky and future sats at a faster rate then we currently are and stability comes by getting on the main market!
I feel the current sp is great value and I am topping as much as I can, I belive we should be around the 300 / 325 mark but I am no expert!
If your projections below are correct we could easily £12+ fingers crossed.
Me too, in for the long term. My question is, how long IS the long term? Assuming Hylas. 3 starts its service in early 2016, and Hylas 4, ( with far more capacity), a year later, I see this as medium term. Then we have to factor in how long it takes for all four satellites to sell out their space. I am also assuming that by 2017, Artemis will have come to the end of its life. I am guessing that we will be looking at a share price of between £5 and £8 by the end of 2017, though I am assuming that both Hylas 3 and 4 will still have space to sell, whereas 1 and 2 should have been filled.
Assuming no problems, there may well be announcement of the development of at least one further satellite. So for me, the Long Term, goes beyond 2018- 2020, when I would hope AVN would have been listed on the main market, and the SP beyond £10.
It will be interesting to see whether the upward momentum continues ahead of the update next week after weeks of drift downwards. An update on the Facebook talks would help! In it for the long term though so have given up being concerned about daily movements
Interesting stuff sweepydog. I think we could all do with knowing where we are. I was just having another look at that article I sent through on how things are developing in the Middle East and North Africa. ANV should be able to make the most of developments as they seem to be in the thick of it.
Part where AVN gets a mention as follows:
“We see growing demand for connectivity coming from this region. The Middle East and Africa are considered some of the fastest growing markets around the globe with great deal of potential especially for broadband Internet applications” Ashraf Hajjaj, SkyGate CEO says. “We provide [Voice over IP] VOIP, Video on Demand and TV capabilities mostly in Jordan, Syria and Iraq. The current high increase in demand witnessed in our market is followed by major service providers offering HTS now in the Middle East and Africa, mainly Yahsat and Avanti. The re-pricing presented by Yahsat has had a major effect on rescaling price levels with their marketing budget, which directly affected the equipment and services pricing generally.”
Given the deathly silence on RNS, RNS Reach and Trade releases I fell to wondering exactly what AVN are doing today... well at least some of the staff are at Didcot speaking at the UK Space seminar on connecting up the farming industry. Link:
Did you know that using satellite technology can save farmers thousands of pounds as knowing exactly where you are means that you save fuel and time when you plough or combine a field? (per the BBC Farming programme)
What do you people expect? Given the bullish comments from the previous quarter earnings I am hoping for a bit of an upside suprise. Time for AVN to finally start deliver... Would also love to see them say that low orbit satellites (Virgin etc) are not a threat to the AVN business model....? (I assume Hylas 3 just politics and not a problem).
