Nektan: Some good news, survival for now and a change of stance from a Not-Always-So-Cynical Bear

2017-07-05 02:16:31

Nektan (NKTN) has been surviving on fumes recently but its short-term survival is ensured by an announcement this morning with a loan from its major shareholders and although the future still looks tricky, such support is to be applauded as it keeps hopes alive for the wider shareholder base.


Nektan: CEO quits – Daily Mail readers have had a bad week!

2017-06-10 02:18:26

No great surprise that Nektan’s (NKTN) CEO, Leigh Nissim, has announced his resignation this week as it must be a challenging and dispiriting role, although one I do wonder when he actually started looking as he’s been in the role for less than a year. It leaves me though with me with a sinking feeling about the PR machines at play at this end of AIM and must also leave Daily Mail readers fuming.


Nektan – Why I despise the Daily Mail: Reason no. 423

2017-04-29 02:15:12

I know I shouldn’t have too much sympathy for the retired bigots that read the Daily Mail but its recent tipping of Nektan (NKTN), which will no doubt cost its loyal readers a few quid, is yet another reason to boycott the rag.


Nektan – Some progress but balance sheet restructuring now critical

2017-03-31 03:24:58

Interims are out this morning for Nektan (NKTN), one of my Sell Picks of 2017, and despite a few green shoots continuing to develop, one wonders how shareholders will fare from the forthcoming funding round and essential balance sheet restructuring.


Sell Picks of 2017 Review Part 2: Nektan – is that a light at the end of the tunnel?

2017-01-09 02:16:00

Anyone who read my sell article HERE and took the brave option of selling pre-final results would have made an instant profit but, to be fair, you wouldn’t have had long as the year-end results came out on 29 December, about an hour after my piece was published. An additional trading update came out this morning though - is that a light at the end of the tunnel I see?


ShareProphets share tip of the year Number 14: Cynical Bear says sell Nektan

2016-12-29 01:16:43

I wasn’t writing for Shareprophets a year ago but I called Nektan (NKTN) as my bear pick of the year on 14 January and it has played out as I envisaged with the share price dropping from its 31 December 2015 price of 130p to 32p today – a drop of 75%; but I think there’s still some way to go as I sense matters are coming to a head.


Nektan – Another disappointing trading update – any hope?

2016-07-02 00:17:37

I first wrote about Nektan (NKTN), my bear pick of the year, in mid-January HERE with the share price having already had a bad start to the year down to 107p from 130p at the close of 2015. Following yesterday’s pre-close trading update for the year to 30 June 2016, it closed down 23% on the day at a mere 47p. Time to reassess my position.


Nektan – pretty impressive spending (by the company that is rather than the customers)

2016-03-31 03:30:48

With Nektan (NKTN) announcing its interims to 31 December 2015 this morning, I felt it was appropriate to reassess, and confirm, my bearish stance set out in my earlier articles (HERE).


Nektan – spinning even faster out of control

2016-03-09 05:25:54

Following on from my earlier pieces on my bear pick for the year, Nektan (NKTN), comment is overdue on its latest funding round announced earlier this week.


Nektan – spinning faster out of control

2016-02-01 02:43:30

Following on from my earlier piece on my bear pick for the year, Nektan (NKTN), today’s trading update indicates that it is unravelling faster than even I imagined. 


Nektan – spinning out of control

2016-01-14 06:51:13

With shares in Nektan (NKTN) dropping significantly this week following the resignation of its CEO and the share price now down at 107p and a market cap of £25 million, I wanted to do a piece on why this stock, ignoring the micro-caps, was my bear pick for the year and why I have been bearish on it more generally for a while.
