Mass outage due to Fastly's CDN service according to the Guardian. Should have been using DarkTrace. :-D
The Guardian: `The increasing centralisation of internet infrastructure in the hands of a few large companies means that single points of failure can result in sweeping outages'. Doesn't yet say whether it's due to an attack of some persuasion, but as Fastly aren't yet commenting, I'll be surprised if it isn't yet another costly example to business of the dangers.
Events like these are a good example of why today's SP remains a steal, frankly. So many businesses are still getting caught napping under an onslaught of increasingly sophsticated cyber attacks.
Also good to see MacLaren advertising Dark Trace on their F1 cars yesterday! Holding strong and long here.

Give it a chance Retirement Plans! :-) Running a loss here at present too, but bought DARK as a long-term hold, so the current pullback in SP doesn't worry me unduly. Companies are increasing their business online exponentially, cyber-attacks are becoming ever-more sophisticated and DARK have just forged a partnership with MIcrosoft which has yet to unfold. Patience may be required, but I think it'll pay off here before too long.
The big stand-out difference: machine learning, which can save companies a lot of time and human supervision/interaction. The majority of large, successful cyber attacks unfold outside office working hours precisely because other security systems require quick human intervention/analysis to stop those breaches.
All my tech holdings seem to be suffering falls today. Article in Shares magazine suggests big tech suffers when there's inflation fears, suspect DARK is getting dragged along with the undertow. Just wish I'd held off from an earlier top-up to buy more now!
I've seen this pullback before when Keywords buys a new company and issues a wodge of additional shares. Maybe due to some being offloaded? It always recovers well. AGM is on 26th, if the results are good and they reinstate a dividend I think we'll see a jump. If I had cash free I'd be adding.

Interesting no info coming out about the other Darkside claimed cyber attacks that I can find. Undoubtedly be putting a lot of companies on notice behind the scenes. DARK IPO and partnership with Microsoft couldn't be timed better IMHO.

Just added too while the market's down, but at 380 - missed 373 while I hesitated! Difficult to resist when I'm getting such a strong hunch about it and DARK are certainly in the right place at the right time. LTH for me and will build from here on any future dips.
Not an expert, but I'm with AJ Bell platform and Wickes shares aren't showing in my account yet either. My TP shares are frozen at the amount I hold, but should have been consolidated to a smaller amount.
I presume it's merely a hold up while the company/platforms get it sorted out.
Cheers Prion, it's worth a shot, especially if it helps in any way! I've also tweeted him Synairgen's press release so he can see the trial results. He was on there an hour ago and seems to check in regularly.
Agree with CityTTrader and other folk being more pragmatic here. Biotech investing requires patience and the understanding that academics are far from being PR people. Panic selling here is creating a very good buying opportunity for others who've done their research and can hold their nerve.
Mary Aurelian's tweet today translated: `The sng001 home data, in press release. A favorable trend. In phase 3, instead target dyspneic (shortness of breath) patients to improve the NNT (numbers needed to treat)'.
P3 and/or takeover is the really important time and this RNS IS favourable to both. Meanwhile the UK is being short-sighted and lulled into false complacency. It's not just India either, Japan etc... Last week 144 cases of Indian Variant reported in UK, this week 400. Current vaccines aren't proven against it yet as far as I can ascertain. Even this imbecilic government are now looking towards therapeutics belatedly.
Is that an attempt to pick up even cheaper?! :-D TP is well set for the market opening back up, the DIY market is soaring and both Toolstation and Wickes are growing stronger both instore and online. An initial drop was inevitable, especially in a market shaken by events in India, but will soon recover. Nothing to worry me as a LTH here, just a good buying opportunity.
RE: A post from April 14 may help28 Apr 2021 11:09
I usually read rather than post, but as a LTH got to thank you for recent very informative posts Peter. Already my largest holding by far, but sorely tempted to another top-up.
You always get idiots aplenty on these BBs, but some of ORPH's outstanding contributors - as well as Cathal of course! - keep me reading here and holding strong. As Earache said, we know we're still undervalued and that's not a problem if you're a true LTH.
Gum disease is caused by bacteria dysbiosis and is the leading cause of tooth loss. It also causes the build up of C Reactive Proteins in the body that are strongly linked to increases in cardovascular disease. Previous studies have shown benefits, but only when used longterm: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31850634/
There's already interest in probiotics in this field by way of chewable tablets and gum, by the looks of things, but I imagine products backed by reputable clinical studies would present much wider and larger opportunities. Very excited by this news.
Hi Robina, sorry for the late reply, only just saw your message. Well, I'm glad KWS appear to be helping you buck your trend! ;-) I'm a LTH - like moorhey about 3 years now - and I buy on the dips where possible. I like that company have a strong long-term ambitious strategy and global reach. IMO this makes for a very good long-term investment with dividends thrown in.
