2017-06-15 06:15:52

Having been bearish on Starcom (STAR) – from with the shares at above 7p HERE and most recently HERE – I note the stock currently 50% higher today, at 2.25p, on the back of a “Major Supply and Support Agreement” announcement…

Starcom - le AIM ramp de jour but valuation crackers

2016-08-03 01:03:58

Those lucky folks who got in on the most recent bailout placing for AIM dog Starcom (STAR ) in March at 1.5p have done brilliantly. The shares now trade at 4p mid and this is now le ramp de jour for certain morons on twitter and the bulletin boards. But the valuation is surely insane at £5.4 million given the ongoing losses, painful lack of tangible asset backing and the inevitability that another placing is imminent.

Starcom a speculative buy on its US growth drive

2015-11-20 01:51:11

Currently unloved Starcom (STAR), Israel-based specialist in remote tracking and monitoring of assets and people, is planning to launch a Mark 2 version of its Watchlock high-security padlock and hoping to clinch a big contract for its Helios vehicle tracking range, as founder and chief executive officer Avi Hartmann celebrates what he argues is a transformational joint venture to grow the company in the key North American market.  Loss-making Starcom, whose shares spiked up to 21.75p in January on rumours of a deal with Japanese motor giant Honda before crumbling back to a lowly 2.25p now, has formed a distribution and product development partnership with Florida-based SATO Global Solutions, part of Japan’s £600 million-turnover SATO Holdings, market leader in  automatic identification and data capture.
