big dish - daily.
ideally need to hold above 4.65p being the current level of the main trendline......so possibly going to do a test of the trendline at that level...and then a higher high....so above 6.20p....
lets see...but i don't see this going much lower imvho....4.65p looks a good place to add ...
atb, wdik, dyor,
Could be announced any day.
Looking forward to hearing what else we’re up to.
I personally wouldn’t trade this, I just buy more on weaknesses- it’s the sort of stock that has the potential to just suddenly disappear over the horizon.
Exactly, if peeps can`t see through him by now then they never will. He loves this stock and knows it will come good, so he plays on the sentiment of nervous holders and just continues to rinse and repeat.
Like I said before, talk the company up when he`s bought on a dip, then sell and trash it when he detects the slightest negativity. It works for him but only because the weak sellers suck in his analysis, on both sides!
Look for his positive posts this week, even though he has categorically stated that there will NOT be any news until Sept, which I categorically dispute because of the amount of things going on in this very active period.
Sounds like Art may well be long again here....
He's gone calling holders here idiots on Thursday to talking about "improvement and okay"
Worst stock and company in the world when you've sold and looking for your re-entry target Art....
Best company in the world when your long and holding...
right or not Art??
Just a Sunday morning chuckle from me...
be lucky everyone...atb....
KingRaph, have you signed up to Beta testing? If so you may be seeing a test app rather than the released version.
Remember this is a Tech share with volatile daily movements! Don’t be put off due to that!
I can't see what you are seeing . It probably just needs updating. This link informed the market that the beta testing period was finished.
Meanwhile what I can see on Playstore is that the App has 50,000+ downloads - an improvement and okay for just a handful of locations and restaurants.
If you go into Playstore and click on the Bigdish app it says Bigdish - Restaurant Discount (Beta), then below it states "you are a Beta user for this app". Doesn't get much clearer really.
I think you will find that the beta testing period is long over. It was announced by the company as officially concluded in the RNS of 16th January 2019.
Re: Alphabetical listing
Little things make a lot of difference and at the end of the day it's all down to professionalism. This looks much better now.
Yes, as they have said they will need a more sophisticated method for listing as all of the territories come on board. Looking as Just Eat you can enter your postcode for a list of nearby outlets and there is also a link where you can select popular locations or view all locations. If you do the latter then it brings up a list of all towns and cities (in alphabetical order) and then if you select the town/city you want it further breaks it down into areas and postcodes.
I'm sure Big Dish will get this sorted when they need to.
If you have any feedback then in the app click on the contact us section and there is a feedback form. Sent a few bits in myself from my own observations of the UI playing around with it and some suggestions from my gf who tried it out in Bournemouth.
Just a note for people complaining about the app, it is still at BETA PHAZE, the whole purpose being to find and fix flaws in the software. There's an email address to inform them of any problems and I'm sure they will take on board suggestions.
The whole company is still in Beta PHAZE really, the core concept will stay the same but everything else will be tweeked until they find the best process for delivery.
Nice they listen to feedback hey? I mentioned something on here once and it was fixed two days later.
They are working through a different way to display locations in the future as there will be too many to list by town and city.
Glad to see things on the app are now in alphabetical order.
Agree with the bulk of what you say, and I was grateful for Aidan's update in Twitter chat earlier which was comprehensive. After some great progress there was a bit of a crossover point about 5 weeks ago where the company's eyes were bigger than its belly in terms of what was achievable in the short term and market expectations became unrealistic. The company 100pc though are aware of where the shortfalls are and putting in place the building blocks. So much going on behind the scenes both here and Manila.
The one fly in the ointment in the short term may be the annual reports. Whilst largely irrelevant moving forwards some people will be spooked by a high cost base and low income. Depends how many shares are in sticky hands now. As I posted yesterday there seems to me to be a roadmap to profitability which comes with scaling up, and it would be helpful to educate the market how it can be a viable business model in future podcasts.
Very contemporary approach to marketing lined up too, looking forward to the blogs and celeb ambassadors. Will be interesting to see what household names are lined up.
The market understands the potential here, thats why it had a strong rise up to 9p.
The company is working flat out to create a very lucrative model, but it doesn`t get built overnight and there will be bumps (delays) in the road.
Nobody in the UK are building the same platform, no membership, the 48 hour booking window, discount for eating out of main busy times etc etc etc.
Now is summer season, some restaurants will be happy with a slight increase on normal numbers, some won`t and will be happy to keep live on the app...its not a secret.
They are clearly a bit stretched for personnel at the moment, thats why their main focus is to get new employees on board, its the right thing to focus on for now.
With what they have planned I see no barriers to the sp being between 20p-30p by xmas..a 6x bagger in 6 months at todays price.
If you bought higher recently expecting 10p on the Brighton live announcement then you`re probably feeling a bit wounded, but after it being flagged as `due soon` for the last month then you should have thought about the `buy on the rumour sell on the news` mantra, and will no doubt have learned a lesson....but, they have stated that they expect the numbers to increase probably on a weekly basis so no need to panic unless you wanted a quick profit.
5p seems to be the support level now so any news flow from here on will more than likely have the share price moving strongly like it did before.
Time is moving on quickly, unfortunately if you love the summer like me, and Sept is only 6 weeks away when they expect to be going in to the hyper growth period.
Chill out, enjoy the summer while it lasts, and look forward to being rewarded for your patience.
Or panic and sell at this price, then look back in regret when the sp bounces strongly and you can`t decide whether to buy back in higher, and then kick your own ass 7 ways to Sunday if you decide not buy back in when the price goes in to the teens and beyond.
Up to the individual, but don`t spend too much time listening to the derampers who only want to talk the price down to get in lower, otherwise why would they bother posting????
They buy, talk the price up and everything looks rosy, then sell and everything is doomed...rinse and repeat!
Think big picture and you will have a very merry Q4 and a happy new year!
If Brighton is a city which can support 600 restaurants/eateries, there is obviously a great deal of disposable income around. the story in Manchester Birmingham, Liverpool and Newcastle may well be entirely different in as much as there may not be the same levels of disposable income, especially during the week and the offer may well be more attractive to both diners and restaurants. After all, why would you discount meals if you are busy enough to warrant not bothering? It would be a neat strategy to start some activity in a Northern city where the offer would be perhaps more appreciated and compare results
Drax, you are absolutely right re Brighton but, as i tried to explain in my most recent long post, these are the trials and tribulations we all have to accept with a very early stage growth company trying to find its feet..they could have stayed private..they went public early instead..great cuz I can buy v cheap prices but have to accept the ups and downs in my blood pressure along the way..relax...gla
I appreciate your efforts to keep people on the board informed. I also understand very well both the concept and your post today.
My real concern is that the company promise things that they ought to know they cannot deliver. Be honest the Brighton launch was an embarrassment. They knew they were stretched on staffing and should not have proceeded with such a poor launch.
I believe they have seriously damaged confidence and need to be more cautious in the future.
Drax, I'm surprised at you...I thought u understood model...summer months is peak time and restaurants don't, repeat DONT, want to offer discounts and hence be on the app. Surely u can understand this ! I hope also u understand all my previous posts over last few weeks explaining what's been going on in T1 and T2 etc...anyhow, I really don't want to repeat all again.. just remember u r investing in v early stage growth company so put up with the ups and downs...it's normal
with 41 restaurants signed up in bournemouth already it shows how things may go as they go live in various city's around the country
I think we all need to take the following into account...i quote what foolsgold07 on LSE wrote and he is right:
"The company is implementing a business strategy which is in keeping with any small
embryonic entity at the beginning of its Life,,,,,
A) A small number of restaurants per city
B) Ensures costs are kept to a minimum, retaining working capital levels
C) Ensures any IT problems are more easily rectified.
D) Minimize any potential customer problems during implementation period.
E) Increase staffing levels gradually (with new territory managers) as and when
business justifies these needs.
F) Then nationalize in accordance with Business plan later this year."
All the issues which we all talk each day would be hidden from investors' sights if they were a private company, not public co. I'm sure Just Eat in their embryonic days long before IPO had issues..if they had gone public long before in setup stage I'm sure we would all experience similar anxieties etc...I think we all need to accept that bigdish listed very early in its growth and hence we should accept the pains associated with that...I can only speak for myself but I'm glad that I have the opportunity to invest in such an early co..otherwise, they would stayed private and IPOed at £1 etc...furthermore, the company are very forthcoming than most management at other companies...they are looking at setting up a bigger message group cuz max 50 on Twitter is too limiting.
Drix...u haven't tried to predict the price in the last 10 minutes..You okay mate
Yes but then I thought it was only the odd idiot or two.
Thought you had done us all a favour when you said you were leaving the board
but now you are back
