Vela – Broker Note Vicarage Capital

2015-05-10 04:38:05

Vela (VELA) is a stock that we have tipped on HotStockRockets and it looks an interesting play. The shares are 0.2p and I reckon that NAV could well be in excess of 0.5p. Of course most of investments are illiquid private companies so the shares will always trade at a discount to NAV but the current discount seems excessive.


Buy Vela Technologies

It is all too easy to write the lot off as vehicles to allow useless directors and City parasites to milk the gravy train, if that is not mixing metaphors. But there is the odd nugget of value and that brings us to this month’s share tip of the month, Vela Technologies (VELA).
