Tim Watts, CFO at Shield Therapeutics #STX presenting at our Life Sciences Investor Briefing Watch Now
We never did get to hear the full story of that blue handled fountain pen that Bottomz aunt owned......Bakingmental.
Well Baking, just to correct you (if you don`t mind) it was my cousin that has the Blue handle fountain pen, she`s had it man and boy.... not to question her gender you understand, although she did always have quite a hairy adams apple which always tickled the p**s out of everybody at Xmas gatherings!
She claimed she found the said pen in a bog somewhere, not the public convenience type you understand, but up on Dartmoor in the 70`s. Apparently she`s convinced that it belonged to an ancient Roman transvestite called Romulus the Runt...we think its a spelling mistake, nevertheless, she`s convinced, so we just put it down to her having an imaginary friend.
Anyway, she`s got it mounted in a nice mahogany box on her wall in Dickson City Pen`sylvania, where some of the locals believe every bit of the story....I think the hairy adams apple makes them think she`s from another dimension, so have no reason to doubt her.
We haven`t been in touch for a few years, but I wish her a long and happy imagination, and her pen a long extended providence, true or false!
Bless her, she`s a nice bloke.
Morning Thebig, seen results of companies released during the day at times, but hope Bids don`t because it usually means that they don`t really want people to read them before the open in the hope that it reduces the sell off!
It doesn`t work anyway because they just sell off at the next open.
I too am waiting with funds to top up so gonna be watching like a shytehouse spider ready to pounce on any over reaction to the downside, but with JD stating that revenues will be strongly weighted to H2 I am not expecting a huge drop.
Looking forward to JD on the podcast in the next day or so, hoping for more of his confident sentiment and might top up then if its juicy.
I have thought about this myself, there`s probably a combination of reasons why price hasn`t jumped after the recent news.
One which may be on the minds of potential new investors that are reasonably familiar with the story is that they may perceive that the current situation is now priced in. and that the strong rise this year was a bit overpriced previously.
Others may be delaying buying until the market returns to normal after the summer holidays, which is renowned for lower volumes and larger volatility...but I think they`re missing a trick if they don`t hurry up and get in while the Sun is still strong.
The chart has been showing very strong signs of buying beating selling, the buying pressure is winning. A breakout is definitely on the cards.
Here`s the 2 hour chart which clearly shows support rising in the `flag`, nice flagpole bottom at 25p (which was gratefully accepted)...luckily...and with the subsequent rise and creation of the flag pattern, with a flat top resistance at about 33.5p - 34p, traders and savvy investors will be aware that the completion of the flag pattern showing potential for a short term rise to 41p (the height of the pole transferred to the move above the breakout level).
There are still some sellers at 33p+, but once they dry up the MM`s will be forced to let price go up to the next level, first 36p resistance, but if some more news flow drops in next week, or the week after, and the one after that, or all three, then well in to Sept, the price could develop in to a moving supertanker with higher momentum attracting more attention and thus getting some wide stream publicity. A nice article in one of the financial pages over the bank holiday w/e would bring the story to the masses, sooner or later a financial writer will tap on to the Bidstack story and let the cat out of the bag.
And that brings it to another reason why the price hasn`t taken off with the recent `big` news flow, it`s because only a relatively small % of stock market participants are aware of Bidstack....yet!
A very high % of participants on this discussion forum have all said the same things...best company I`ve seen in a long time, brilliant CEO, highest % of my portfolio, gigantic potential in a vast market, first mover advantage, excellent team...expertly put together by James Draper......so why wouldn`t new investors be eager to buy in if after doing their research if they also came to the same conclusions?
Sentiment surrounding Bidstack is growing more optimism day by day. James is keeping his word about the news flow in Q3, so his prediction of `take off` in Q4 would be disastrous for the company if it didn`t happen, and would undermine James` credibility.... which judging by his enthusiastic optimism, his exuberant delightful belief in how the team are able to navigate carefully through to being a mammoth of the gaming world of advertising..it`ll never happen!
This Is Just T
Htt, can Bids be lumped in to the same bracket as `every company`?
They certainly stand out as a possible `exceptional company` in my experience of being involved in the markets for 20 years.
IF..and its a big IF, the market reacts negatively at the results then I will be taking advantage along with plenty of others.
I can`t believe that anyone would associate the word `downside` after everything thats gone before at Bidstack.
JD has been second to none when it comes to putting `the` AAA Team together, stating the plan of calculated careful action, sticking to his promises of good news flow in Q3 (so far..still time left) and you all KNOW that his promise of Q4 being the period of big progress, move time, hit the ground running...whatever you want to call it... will happen!
He`s absolutely bouncing with excitement and optimism about the future of this staggering opportunity to take the gaming advertising world by storm, backed up by a team that has a collective multi billion dollar CV.
When the results are released I have absolutely no doubt that it will be not only timed to perfection but will also include forward looking statements and future outlook that will create a frenzy of buying that beats any previous rallies this year.
This isn`t a blind ramp, I truly believe that it will happen. The optimism surrounding this company is building, the name `Bidstack` is getting out there, and plenty of investors are buying in big chunks..yes some are selling and taking their profits but the pressure cooker of belief is growing day by day....this will blow at some point, and maybe the results RNS will be the catalyst to ignite that explosive rise.
As they keep reminding us...This Is Just The Start!
Low volumes at this time of year increases volatility and is generally accepted as a perfect opportunity to pick up cheap stock, specially in exceptional growth stocks like Bids.
Don`t panic Capt Mainwaring, the kids go back to school in just over two weeks, so the holiday season will end and the professional stock market participants will return to work.
I`m expecting a strong bounce going in to Sept `without` further news...if there is further news then the bounce will be even stronger and will sustain price at a higher level.
And quite another interesting point of note was that after one of, or should I say probably THE most, important RNS Bidstack have ever released, JW asked James to come on the podcast to discuss and he didn`t want to do that!!! Hmmm?
Maybe JW`s `use` has come to an end, and the Bids story is about to go stratospheric without wanting JW`s pumping podcasts to get the story in to the main stream.
6 months ago this discussion board was lucky to get 10 posts a day, I actually commented on it and someone said `shhhh...keep it quiet for now, this will be huge!
Now, its on the top figures of discussion comments regularly!
So he`s had his rant about people giving him some stick when he sold some Bids, but still didn`t address the fact that he continually told his followers to `buy the dips stupid`...(bids), but he never once said `but I might sell when I think all you mugs buying has now been exhausted so now I might sell some...and a few days later I will tell you that I sold some!!
He always said don`t buy when the RSI is high, wait for it to be low....then buy, which is fair enough, but he gave the impression that that was what he was doing...when in fact it wasn`t, he was selling in to the rise but not telling his followers that he had it in his plans to do that, until after he`d done it. :-)
I still think he`s just playing the mugs, like Winnfrith..or whatever he was called, and Zak Mir has been another one.
They have a platform which allows them to manipulate peoples buying behaviour, then tuck a bit of profit in to the personal coffers to make sure that... `I`m alright Jack`.... thank you very much!
All I know is that James D has been absolutely bouncing with confidence all the way through every announcement this year, the deals, the spectacular team that he has convinced to come on board (although the tech probably had a say in why they said yes), the E3 extended meetings with the who`s who from Silicon Valley, the careful building strategy so as to stay `big and neutral`, the unchanged predictions of big news flow in Q3..and even bigger in Q4 with a `hit the ground running` plan of action towards a high revenue stream, the fact that the governing bodies of licensing had to create a whole new category for Bidstacks model because there wasn`t one before..ie first mover advantage in the `Native` in game programmatic adverts within the global Gaming sphere...also ad impression pixels to monitor numbers of eyes on ads..along with the Lumen Research Study which confirmed that Bidstack's ads outperformed online browsing norms across all the titles tested, in some cases by more than double.
And who doesn`t love the video on the website, a magical summary of the future!
James has kept his word all along, and been chomping at the bit to be able to release more news and information about whats to come, so that he can give the juicy details and not be tip toeing through NDA`s and making sure he`s not saying anything that would scupper the big picture dominance that he is clearly working towards..and 100% truly believes in.
I am totally convinced that the technology, and the team, that Bidstack now have will take the Company to much much higher levels in what has become one of the biggest growth industries on planet Earth.
James has the team, the technology, the timing, the momentum, and the enthusiasm.....and the final point, he has big skin in the game...so he owns a large % of the Company.
The MM`s can play their cards, the day traders can come and go and make their buy and sell decisions selling in to this price and buying in to one that for their 15% profits.
Forget the churn, sit back and enjoy the story, for it is a compelling one, the big prize is a VERY big prize indeed..your faith will be rewarded.
So ask yourself fellow Bidstack believers....`Whats Not To Like`???
THIS IS JUST THE START!!!
Thats the key thing here Girds, its the team that JD has managed to put together, not just because of their obvious intelligence, prolific success, expert status, and worldwide gaming industry knowledge...but also because of their contacts. They know everyone who is anyone in Silicon Valley, and each Silicon Valley Titan is in a cut throat race to be the dominant name in the exponential growth of gaming worldwide!
And James and his team had 50+ meetings with every one of them at the E3 Expo in LA back in June, when they only had plans for 20 meetings on arrival....apparently they were passed around like a hot pic, of a hot babe, in a school boys changing room!!
They all wanted some! Ha ha

Well after pumping Bids for months and saying he is an investor, not a trader, he sells in to his profit instead of `ONLY` buying the dips! So he is a trader!
He`s not only shot himself in the foot by selling but made himself look a bit of a fraud when saying, repeatedly, that he would not be selling!
Showed his true colours and caught a cold.
Can`t say I feel sorry for him, but you can bet your bottom dollar that he will have put his buy order in within minutes of reading that RNS.....hope you don`t have to pay more to get back in than you sold for Justin!!!!!! :-)
Just on another note, fantastic to know that James Draper is running such a tight ship, and even his `mate` on Vox is not privvy to what is actually happening behind the scenes.
And finally, James has said more than once that he wants to be in a position to announce a deal with a DSP as well as a game developer at the same time...`there`s no point in announcing one without the other`!
He says what he does, and does what he says...time after time.
Well done James D, you`re playing a blinder.
What an incredible day, I agreed to take on a small contract (3 weeks) starting today, so been away from watching the share price and trades.
Job is 50 miles from home and had an elongated journey home due to a road closure near to home. Added 30 mins to journey!
Got home and someone had blocked my access to where I live, then when I did get access someone had put my brown bin in the lane which obstructed me even more.
Got in at 5:45pm, looked at share prices and not a great day mostly, then looked at twitter and saw JW`s `Wow` tweet....hello, whats going on. Briefly scanned his tweet which included the letters `RNS`..So I was hoping beyond hope that the RNS was after hours otherwise the SP drop was going to be a big disappointment.
Checked RNS, and the time, and that was when my day changed and turned my frown upside down..EXCELLENT news!!
So that just confirms to the JW followers that he `DOESN`T` have inside knowledge, or a crystal ball!
It will certainly make them rethink their copycat strategy, and they will listen a bit more closely in future when he says `do your own research`!
I think I`m going to dance with a Heineken while I Pump Up The Volume...yehaaa!
Just to keep the dust down you understand.
You should have a listen, and to be honest he seams more concerned about a global downturn than anything to do with Bidstack, so just being cautious overall, which is sensible to protect some profits by taking some cream off the top.
JW is no mug, but he`s also no genius either. He`s made some good calls and he`s also made some poor judgements and risky punts....the same as everyone else!
The difference with him is that he has a platform where he has some followers, a lot of those followers have no stock market acumen so they just do whatever he does and hang on his every word. Some of them who hold here will sell just because he`s said that he`s reduced his exposure...because he was overexposed, without really thinking about what that means. He`s taken some cream off the top to protect his own account after a strong run...but it doesn`t mean that he has some sort of inside information. We all know how protective James D is about the future news flow, and he would be a complete idiot if he was to let any cats out of bags about future deal details, timelines, or any other type of inside knowledge etc... to anyone!
JW has to make his own calls, as we all do, but he surprised me a bit in the midweek podcast when the discussion moved on to ECR Minerals, a junior gold explorer with very strong potential due to their exposure to a high potential region in Victoria Australia and more.
He said yes it sounds ok, and I must admit that I don`t have any gold in my portfolio, no physical gold, no ETF`s, no Companies...and I must think about getting some!!
Well HELLO Justin, you`re only about18 months late! I thought any savvy stock market follower would have at least some of their portfolio exposed to the strong gold chart which has been showing buy signals for a good couple of years at least, specially if watching the UK and world stock markets is what you do all day!
He`s not a market guru or god, but if you`re just one of his followers who can`t do research or judge for yourself then sell Bidstack, I`m sure there will be more savvy traders and investors willing to take your shares off you for the next news flow in Q3, of which there is a little over 6 weeks left...maybe next week, maybe the week after, but news is coming, and Justin Waite is just as in the dark about what it will be as we are.
