Yep. I am not surprised actually that investors are keen to talk about stocks other than FLX. Back to a level where NO-ONE can claim to be making money on FLX at 1.5p. Though given the mindset I expect some to claim still being at a small loss.
I just checked your posting history MtrDribbles and you only post on FLX. I do hope this is not your only investment. I see you bought once at 2.135 but were also critical of my negativity on this at 4p. You also asked me about shorting this when it was 3.5p. I bet you wish you had Officer Dribbles :)
sneak out the results tomorrow. It would say everythng about this company if they put them out late afternoon on a bank holiday weekend hoping people will be away or distracted. If not tomorrow then surely they willl make an announcement soon as to when they are. This continued silence won;t be good for the SP. There is a current lull in trading of its shares but I can see more investors throwing in the towel as the silence around the results continues.
as I think the recent market sell-off has hit quality stocks like SPX. I am hoping that 87 to 90 pounds can be achieved here in less volatile times but am comfortable adding at under 80 pounds a share.
Bubbling up nicely. Oversold recently as we know the results will be good. Given how the markets are I think we can expect more volatility. However I will be adding on dips as I did this morning but of course into the rise today.
Riszer that is common parlance in Takeover situation so I don't believe it has a subtext.
GNK has fallen a smidge today which is not real surprise as beer tends to go flat if you leave it on the table too long. Nice premium as the uplift in the SP is well above recent averages but they are paying peanuts when you consider the SP was 1200p at one point. I would be feeling salty if I had put my order in at that price. It would be nice if another bidder was flushed out as it could go a few rounds. But the offer and the last divi is really enough for me to dine out on.
Can't be long before 1.6p on the bid gives way. The Zak Mir effect has worn off already. The huge spread stopped buyers in their tracks. About 1.73p to buy now but I expect under 1.7p to be available soon.
You are entitled to be positive Fairview but if the results are ood what is the delay in getting them out? What value is in a keeping back the results. You haven;t answered my point on the auditors yet but at least you don't posit it as a reason for the lateness- as per the timetable outlined by the board members. Perhaps they are Mr Micawbers? Waiting for something to turn up?
In my view Zak Mir's followers are responsible for the sustained volume in early trades.. I don't have access to his analysis but it would be interesting to see what his argument for investing in FLX. This morning may be a technical bounce for a company that looks oversold on a charting basis. However it is not imv based on fundamentals which we will only have when the results are announced. The MM's probably widened the spread as they are unsure of direction too as I suggested earlier.
Good morning Ronald. It is interesting how two people can view the same fact and see it differently but long may it continue! One of my many criticisms of FLX is how they bloat out the company. A 30% rise in staff and an increase in the cost of administration costs will only be good if the results show the recruiting has been warranted.
If you look back at Noel hempsky's who is a holder you will see he has often been diligent in highlighting vacancies at FLX so it is not something new.
When the results finally come out I will have a look at the profit figure versus the rise in administration costs of running FLX. As well as doing some FLX bingo. Lots to look forward to!
A flurry of early buys at all prices up. This despite the lack of an announcement of results which seemed to be spooking investors into selling but was no deterrent this morning. The bounce was 10% plus but is now down to less than 5%. The wide spread seems to suggest that the MM's don't know where this one is going. It will be pretty hard for any speculative buyers to exit with a profit given the spread. Was it bottom fishers that caused the initial rise or it had a mention somewhere?
Good evening Jonesy. Why would they want to do that though? If the figures speak for themselves then get them out to stop spooking investors. Do you mean they have had loads of contracts but thought to themselves, you know what, I will only announce them with the results? I don't think that is quite how it works :)
I wonder will they try and sneak them out late tomorrow or else late next Friday when it is a bank holiday weekend?
It is not "easy" to read negatively on this share as you get the usual suspects talking about why you post etc and saying you shouldn'tt be posting here unless you mean it is easy to post negatively due to the dire SP performance? In terms of the timing of the release of results, who do you think is responsible for the timing? yes the good old board of FLX who promise one thing and don't deliver on it. Two of them to boot. Not to mind one. At least you managed to avoid mentioning the new auditors as being responsible.
Interesting projections on revenue and EBITDA nonetheless. Let us see if they stack up.
Dodgepot, so my posts are for the sake of posting? You really have a sick mindset. I am here like you to air views. You have never like anyone who doesn;t share your view on this share and question their motives as well as speaking in a derogatory fashion about posters like me. Well you are getting the SP you deserve. It is funny how we agree now-on the delay not being good news- whereas before you didn't want to countenance any other views. However you still have 'concerns' about how I spend my time and of course still look for an agenda by me. This may still turn round for you of course. While you are waiting for that to happen, you might want to reflect what a more open mind on other poster's right to an opinion might mean for you. You effectively resigned your role as you no longer have the neck to explicitly tell people who are not invested not to post but you hold on to your sentiments of 'more time than a clock' and 'bothering my backside'. Both comments which you would never label on someone who is positive about FLX. You got the SP and performance you deserve Dodgepot.
Fairview I really don't know why you are peddling this bigger/new auditor line as the reason the results are not out.? Why would it take 10 weeks to audit a piddling company like FLX? I have asked you previously without reply as to what has changed after the 3rd of July TP presentation when Mike Read said results would be out in about 4 weeks and Selby end of July/beginning of August. What has changed since then? Didn't the pair of them know about the impact as you would have it of the bigger auditors? They never mentioned the auditors as a factor. Or only you have worked that out?
to an all time low. Not a single investor/poster here is currently making money on FLX despite the fact that many posters here only want an echo chamber on their own views. Not one. Despite the mindset of "I am breaking even/small profit. I am an investor. You have no right to post here".
I have said many times the market i.e the SP will be the ultimate judge of opinions on here. And the market is clearly speaking again today.
Fairview you don't know for sure nor do I what the state of the results will be. I have made the point that delays are never good and a placing is possible. I won't be making the placing point again as yes I agree it could be seen as scaremongering which is not my intention. In fact my hunch on a placing is linked to Stieffel rather than the results.
On your last point about scaremongering about the results being late having a meaning, you can see investors here posting that they don't like it. I have flagged it and don't intend to mention it again for now. Hopefully we will see the results quite quickly so we have something concrete to discuss.
Hi NicetoMichu, No certainty of course. I wouldn't put "in my opinion" in every post as it would be a bit repetitive but yes it is conjecturefrom me. I am not a fan of results coming out later than normal particularly when the board are miscommunicating ( at investor forums) and not communicating ( no Rns to date giving notice of when results are).
Really odd even if they release the results as I expect in the morning. Last year FLX gave six weeks notice. Are they working on some announcement? Or playing fast and loose with the date for news management purposes?
