Shame he didn't whack the spare 2m in Arb at £1.30 last week, and back out again at £2 a few days later. We would have 3m then! I think the same that in some way the unused funds are linked to the trial in some way but it's just a guess.
I agree it can be a bit frustrating but some of these investments are not far off seed funding level so it will take time for them to bare fruit. Sgs big gamble hopefully will do it. Maybe he is holding on to the cash to capitalise on sgs for production working capital if required ? Otherwise having a big cash pile means that when a great opportunity arises he can jump on it. I know what you mean when you see the £2m sat there doing nothing but he has a war chest with that cash so let’s hope he can make the most of it when the time is right... otherwise it will be another fund raise and dilution when the seed investments require further funding. In for the LTH here
HH - think you've been around the lse market probably for some time, like you i do believe SGS is the real deal but i still keep reminding myself of what happened at MTFB / AMP. wasn't a pretty outcome!!!!!
Thats the thing HH, I initially invested here thinking about the natural diversity this share provides but seems like everything is just hanging on the SGS trials. All the other investments seems to have been eclipsed by this...and yet, we are nearly at the levels it was before the SGS investment was made! Thats the disappointing bit, patiently been waiting for months, multiple new investments have been made since and yet we are still at the 0.75 range waiting for the trial results!
JN really ought to make some big investment with the cash he's holding and making some director buys to show skin in the game.
Tricky as others have said Peakdistrict. I have had 3 good trades here so far - 0.045 to just below 0.01, 0.07 to 0.12 and 0.7 to 0.11 and so the temptation is to do similar but I really want to just hold. Just holding wouldn't have worked out to this point and in some ways it is against my natural instinct but I do think that at some point it will just go to a buy and hold and so I am hoping this will be the time. With a bit more return on investments held and a bit more cash we should hopefully be better placed for the medium term and then perhaps more will look further ahead. I am hanging a lot on this trial as I keep coming back to the thought that if they didn't feel potential returns weren't fantastic, then why tie up so much of our available funds for a relatively long period of time?
My plan is to hold a couple of million which will owe me nothing after taking out my original investment plus profits. I'm hoping within a few yrs we could be seeing a AAA type scenario here where holding in the millions will make me wealthy. GLA.
Agree with Royoboy its your decision. Personally i will top slice a small chunk of any future potential profits, but ultimately im here for the long run, as like Reprobus says, why would you be out of a share you believe in? The only time ill be out of VELA is when i can afford to retire on enough coke and hookers and im only 36
I know, best not to ask other shareholders for this advice :) just because Im relatively new wanted to understand how to best play this from people with more experience. I just hope I do the right thing in the end.
That's something you don't do is ask advice from other shareholders that's something you must decide for your self some will Tell you to sell some will tell you not to when your happy like me press the button and walk away and find a new share to put some of your profits in good lucl
Personally Peak, i believe it's always best to top slice "some" profits when the opportunity arrives. I'd never risk being fully out of an investment which i believe in. My ?goal is to achieve a decent holding at a low average on all of my investments, be it stocks or crypto currencies.
Nobody can predict if/when the stock market is going to have another dump, but when it eventually does come around it'll be nice to already be 100% up on your investment, so if there is a 50% market "correction" then you'll still be cutting even (with cash on side to buy more)
What do people plan to do when the SP moves up north. I traded the first peak when it hit 0.13, but he second and third peaks at 0.11 I didn't trade thinking it will move to a new level but then it fell back, twice.
My intention is to go long on this and wanted to be in early. Being fairly new to all this, not sure if I should try to trade this time or just let it ride.
Options: 1) Say it reaches 0.15, I could sell the entire holding and have a decent profit and walk away. 2) Sell and buy back when it falls, but what if it keeps going up then I miss out 3) Slice, sell some and let some ride 3) Just hold still and let it ride the waves, check back next year
I have been very patiently waiting and topping up, have 44m shares but not sure how to play this. I do want to go long, but obviously I also want to increase my holding if there's opportunity.
HeresHopin has the right idea. Yes, there could be other opportunities in the interim period before results but if we get even a sniff of positivity or news of a substantial new investment then the investors will be paying a higher premium. These levels are an absolute bargain.
