The same people that diss the likes of Riddler for his content - which is always excellent by the way - then need the same information posting again for “reassurance”. Why not just read the content that some excellent people put in here - or hell, why not even research yourself and post your findings - instead of posting whinging, negativity and looking to the company to constantly reassure you.
Simple - research, share that research or take what others post and check it out yourself. I mean your not children and shouldn’t need your hand holding.
Cheers - appreciate the caution advice also but for me the placing at the end of March at 10p for £9.5m vs 71% premium to the SP at the time makes this a no brainer for double digits. Normally a LTH but recent pharma bubble/plays have led me to shorter plays - I'll be honest enough to say that, and do so understanding that for many this is a longer hold.
And Ed Moses is a legend of an athlete - if you get a chance to read his story is phenomenal - the man had a nearly 10ft stride! still has the record for 122 straight victories - made him undefeated for 9 years. What a bloke.
Entry level / Averaging down / Top Up opportunities are brilliant right now - gradually been increasing my holding and average is far more respectable now. What hasn't changed is the fundamental story here - for me the impact of COVID worldwide doesn't affect: 1. The overall possibilities for STAR 2. The dedication of the BoD 3. The business partnerships built over the last few years especially 4. The fact we have leading tech Everything else is time and whilst the world and therefore companies like STAR will feel the effect of time, I don't see any dampening of the progress they have and continue to make over the longer term.
See this is where you and I differ - the whole point of these boards and twitter from a traders perspective is to share research - some put hours and hours into that others just leach. Never once have I seen Riddler or anyone else post a rumour or a sniff as anything more than that. They have always been clear with what is speculation and what is fact. At all times ANY trader should only be comfortable with info they themselves have researched. That shouldn't stop others sharing info.
How quickly people forget - or do they, actually hard to tell, as there's lots of folks posting here that haven't had a word to say about STAR during the years I've held - that the company are most likely one decent deal RNS away from complete turnaround in the SP. The world has gone to hell in a handbag for a short period, how can anyone be shocked and start flailing their arms about STAR in this climate? When the dust settles, and it will, STAR find themselves in an even more important sector, still with leading tech and still with the partnerships they had targeted. It makes sense that the company will benefit at that point. We are right to be unhappy here and now but if your feel that extraneous circumstances outside of the BOD control and that affect every single person on the planet is the yard stick by which to judge this company, STAR isn't for you. Still holding here, will be adding when cash flow allows.
I've been quiet as run a security company and we've been flat out - all hands to deck type stuff at the moment - but managed to get two orders in today to average down a litte. Sold out of SNG, MWG and ESL to do so - still underwater but also still believe regardless of what is happening in the world that 2020 remains the year for STAR.
Still doesn't get it. It wasn't what you were saying as such - the point was valid enough the first time you made it. Any investor would agree. It was the frequency and that married to offering nothing else. People would post well researched commentary, details of potential deals, areas for growth, comms activities away from STAR that could have a bearing - loads and loads of really good quality input worth further reading or researching.
Then you would immediately post "They will need capital for production revenue". Pretty much just that, a one liner or similar, every single time. That's been your contribution. The same repeated input. And your defence - someone needs to ask the challenging questions. If you held, phone the BoD - that's how you ask a challenging question.
What you do is de-ramp. Offer no insight or discussion point. And as I have said before you now need to own that is how you are seen.
The revision here by some is not forgotten. Stephen has disappeared having continually guaranteed a placing and others now paint a picture that they were always onside but who, for several weeks, refused to be listened too by LTH's who had to face the same repeated post time after time after time about funding and had to face accusations of being one eyed.
Clearly Riddler has the same opinion - I know I wont forget spending time here trying to detail research and add commentary whilst at the same time having to sift through the same one liner form the same person over and over. You never listened to us Dougal. Not once. You stubbornly kept on with your little de-ramp game and now your here still, but now all sunshine and light.
You've helped for a picture of yourself that will simply not be forgotten by the majority here.
Hear that at the 2 day investor roadshow, the company showed energy, excitement & there will not be a need for placing to fund hitting & surpassing revised Allenby targets - talks re creative means of Funding are advanced. No Advice Given, DYOR
That's an excellent point - we've talked before about the lack of exclusivity that the partnerships have, yet STAR are positioned with these blue chip manufacturers as absolutely essential to many of their core products. Its an odd dichotomy, to be so reliant on a product/s so important without safeguarding against either takeover or competition f the supplier, but one that plays into STARs hands in particular.
