WANdisco – latest share price strength now gives us a 40%+, little more than 4 months, gain...

2020-02-22 12:56:53

In October we wrote on WANdisco (WAND) that it was our October 2018 tip of the month at a 377p offer price, with profit banked at more than 500p in January. The shares are now back at a 400p offer price but, with interims last month having emphasised a “strong platform for growth and evolving pipeline of late stage deals in the early months of H2 leaves us in a strong position, underpinning the board’s confidence in H2 and beyond”, ahead of expected significant news flow, we ride again… targeting a return to 500p+ to sell. After a latest rise today, the shares are now 570p to sell…

WANdisco – a share tip from HotStockRockets

2019-11-28 16:48:30

WANdisco (WAND) was our October 2018 tip of the month at a 377p offer price, with profit banked at more than 500p in January. The shares are now back nearer the former price but, with interims having emphasised a “strong platform for growth and evolving pipeline of late stage deals in the early months of H2 leaves us in a strong position, underpinning the board's confidence in H2 and beyond”, ahead of expected significant news flow, we ride again…

Video: Dave Richards of Wandisco starts to stick it to the City great and good, this will be fun

2019-02-05 03:11:07

I have always liked Dave Richards of Wandisco (WAND) and indeed own a few shares. In the video below he tells the BBC how his firm was almost ruined and wiped out by folks parachuted on to the board from big corporations. But that is only half the tale. The question is who imposed them and backed them? The answer is City advisors and institutional fund managers. I spoke to someone close to Dave this morning and Dave will spill the beans on the City grandees who almost screwed his company up. He's a brave guy for speaking out. This is going to be illuminating and entertaining and will cause some real discomfort in the Square Mile. Bring it on...

2018 UK Investor Show ‘Dragon’s Den’ monthly update - does Tom remain the leader?

2018-06-21 00:15:25

The great success that was the 2018 UK Investor Show saw six 'Dragon's Den' sessions where a number of CEOs each gave a 1 minute (well, supposed to be!) pitch and three 'Dragons' at each session each picked a stock for a £1,000 investment. With the show having been on April 21st, here’s a second performance update...


Uk Investor Show 2018 Videos; Dave Richards of WANdisco

2018-05-01 01:02:36

Is it Dave or David? I get confused by so much these days. Whatever he presented a compelling case. And after the Dragon's Den he did I became a shareholder as you can see HERE. Wandisco (WAND) is proof of how vital management is. It was heading for disaster then management changed and now its zooming ahead as Dave/David explains below.

Wandisco - CEO Dave Richards "unfired" but the ex Sage crew purged from board - the tale of the cat flying first class

2016-10-06 00:41:21

On Thursday 29 September 2016 at 10.41 AM Wandisco (WAND) boss Dave Richards resigned. Or so we were told. The RNS prepared by Non Exec chairman Paul Walker (who agreed to take a massive pay hike and go Exec) stated that Richards was "stepping down.". No reason was given. In fact Richards had been fired by Walker, head of the "Sage crew" within the firm who had been battling Richards for a good while, the main issue being costs: Richards ( the founder) wanted restraint, the men from the "big company" had other ideas. Today Richards was reinstated. It gets better still and more farcical.


Wandisco: I smell an enormous rat: where's the money going?

2016-10-02 10:18:18

On Wednesday, cash guzzling over-ramped serial non-deliverer of anything other than jam tomorrow Wandisco (WAND) announced that it had a new CFO at 7 AM. At 10.41 AM Thursday the company's founder, CEO and all round head honcho David Richards walked with immediate effect. No credible reason was given for his departure. I smell an enormous rat.


WANdisco – talks (in meaningless platitudes), as the CEO walks...

2016-09-30 00:10:21

Following an announcement of the appointment of a new CFO earlier this week, yesterday saw provider of cash-burning solutions, sorry, of “enterprise-ready, non-stop software solutions that enable globally distributed organizations to meet today's data challenges of secure storage, scalability and continuous availability”, WANdisco (WAND) make a further “Directorate Change” announcement…


Shite Results from Wandisco - have you seen the balance sheet?

2016-08-03 07:37:30

Wandisco (WAND) has today published results for the half calendar year which indicate that at June 30th the company was bust. Thank heavens it got an equity placing away shortly afterwards but did it tell punters how bad things were before it got their cash? And how soon before the next bailout.


WANdisco – where now following confetti issue approval?

2016-07-14 23:52:31

Having recovered back above 150p at the start of this month, shares in unique cash-burning machine (sorry, “unique… provider of enterprise-ready, non-stop software solutions that enable globally distributed organizations to meet today's data challenges of secure storage, scalability and continuous availability”) WANdisco plc (WAND) have slipped back with the company having received General Meeting approval for a confetti (sorry again, equity) issue…


WANdisco – CFO departure time confirmed, as my discounted confetti ahoy call has also been…

2016-06-21 03:30:40

It has been announced that CFO of unique cash-burning machine (sorry, “unique… provider of enterprise-ready, non-stop software solutions that enable globally distributed organizations to meet today's data challenges of secure storage, scalability and continuous availability”) WANdisco plc (WAND), Paul Harrison, is to join JUST EAT plc with effect from 26th September. He is stated to be “looking forward to joining”. I bet…


WANdisco – indebted cash-burning machine announces purportedly “significant milestone” news. How long till discounted confetti ahoy?

2016-04-28 03:35:56

Shares in unique cash-burning machine (sorry, “unique… provider of enterprise-ready, non-stop software solutions that enable globally distributed organizations to meet today's data challenges of secure storage, scalability and continuous availability”), WANdisco plc (WAND) currently trade 25% higher today, at 225p, on the back of an announcement that it “has entered into a non-exclusive OEM sales agreement with IBM under which IBM intends to sell WANdisco's Fusion data replication product”. Hmmm…


WANdisco – share price rise despite funding crunch ahoy; there’s not a bargepole long enough

2016-04-22 09:40:14

March-announced results for 2015 from WANdisco (WAND, the self-described provider of whatever “enterprise-ready, non-stop software solutions that enable globally distributed organizations to meet today's data challenges of secure storage, scalability and continuous availability” are) included that the company had required to make the first drawings on a $10 million revolving credit facility after a $26.1 million net cash outflow before new financing saw year-end cash at $2.6 million. This saw the shares on the retreat back towards 100p, but they have since recovered to a current 175p. Hmmm…


Wandisco Results - this is a disaster slow-mo car crash

2016-03-16 08:00:46

It does not seem as if Wandisco's (WAND) attempts to find someone to buy it have come to much. Certainly it does not mention this in today's calendar 2015 results which are truly abject and suggest the company is hurtling at a rate of knots to the very edge of tits up canyon.


WANdisco– new forecasts (lower, natch), even deeper in the merde

2016-02-12 07:44:43

Following a “2015 year-end update” from WANdisco plc (WAND) earlier this week, forecast changes are now following. They ain’t exactly promising!...

2016-02-10 05:18:48

Naughty naughty Wandisco - but breaching AIM Rules the least of its problems

2016-01-06 11:17:23

A extra bag of crisps for The Deputy Sheriff of AIM for spotting a bit of a rule breach by ailing Wandisco (WAND). Given that it is almost out of cash and that insolvency looms if it cant get a rescue bailout underway, perhaps this is just a minor distraction?


WANdisco – after-hours contract wins RNS: Why?

2015-12-24 01:56:03

It is pretty unusual for a company to slip out good news at no-one-is-watching o’clock, but that is what AIM-listed and rather short of cash WANdisco (WAND) pulled out of the hat yesterday at 5.26pm. Is the news really that good? And talking of hats…..…is this all just a precursor to passing the hat around to raise some much needed cash?


A song for Wandisco shareholders from Iron Maiden

2015-12-04 07:50:37

Shares in Wandisco (WAND) are sharply lower again today. They now trade at 87.5p, off 6.5p on the session and down from 140p a month ago. But there is far worse to come - as Steve Moore and I have warned time and time again - see HERE. And so with a few comments here is some sage advice from Iron Maiden. 


WANdisco plc – forecast cuts follow interim results, how long until ‘all the money’s gone’? …

2015-11-07 05:09:24

I warned in March that despite having fallen from approaching 1300p to below 300p, with there no signs of profitability in sight and cash burn severe, shares in WANdisco plc (WAND) looked to remain a sell – see HERE. The following updates with the shares now around 140p and following further savage forecast reductions post results for the first half of 2015…


Wandisco Interims – car crash ahoy!

2015-09-23 01:59:40

You cannot say we did not warn you repeatedly but interims today from Wandisco (WAND) – although well spun – are a dog’s dinner. It is car crash ahoy time. When’s the next bailout placing and who would be mad enough to subscribe?


SELL!: WANdisco plc – what’s the exact nature of its HSBC credit facility?

2015-08-11 03:50:43

Steve Moore previously commented on AIM-listed WANdisco plc (WAND) HERE (‘after the 2015 Q2 sales update, it’s forecast reduction time yet again!’), including noting forecasts of net cash reducing to $6.2 million at the year-end and an $8.5 million net debt position at the end of next year, with there currently a $10 million revolving credit facility in place with HSBC to March 2017. If this balance sheet position was not too close for comfort already, we now have reason to question the exact nature of the HSBC facility…


WANdisco plc – after the 2015 Q2 sales update, it’s forecast reduction time (yet again!)

2015-08-01 00:39:14

WANdisco plc – slightly less PR spin attempted this time, but an update to party about?

2015-07-31 00:23:06

Having changed the name of its first quarter sales update to “Fusion Attracts First Big Data Customers” as it attempted to PR spin its way out of bookings disappointment (see HERE), we now have a second quarter update (actually entitled “2015 Q2 sales update”) from WANdisco plc (WAND)…


WANdisco plc – is the party about to start? Really?

2015-04-28 00:20:59

Having last week reiterated a bearish view on WANdisco plc (WAND) – noting it was trying (and failing) to PR spin its way out of bookings disappointment, a weekend newspaper piece (see HERE) has helped the shares approaching 16% higher  to 292.5p. Does this give me cause to re-appraise my view? Er, NO…


WANdisco – trying (and failing) to PR spin its way out of bookings disappointment?

2015-04-24 04:20:32

The 18th April 2013: a WANdisco plc (WAND) announcement entitled “Q1 2013 Bookings Update”. 17th April 2014: a WANdisco announcement entitled “Q1 2014 Bookings Update”. 23rd April 2015: a WANdisco announcement entitled… er, “Fusion Attracts First Big Data Customers” - despite the first sentence of the announcement noting that the company “reports on first quarter sales”. I think I can guess why…


WANdisco plc – 2014 results & research update suggest it’s far from party time here

2015-03-19 02:18:30

2014-07-26 07:30:49

2014-01-07 16:09:22

Edison on WANdisco – it cannot bring itself to say that the stock is cheap can it?

2013-12-12 15:18:34

Does anyone know what exactly WANdisco (WAND) does? I suppose paid for researcher Edison must have sort of Scooby as it is trousering a big cheque to write research reports on the stock.


Wandisco at 1,410p: Persistent Uptrend Still Targets Towards 1,700p

2013-12-11 12:10:13

As far as shares of Wandisco (WAND) have been concerned in the recent past the name of the game here has really been to avoid getting over excited regarding the upside scenario while at the same time acknowledging that the shares are in an ultra-bullish uptrend and if anything, this kind of price action can surprise to the upside. 


WANDisco a takeover target? - Edison

2013-10-15 11:25:40

WANdisco Product Launch – Use Euphoria to Top Slice

2013-02-08 08:11:16

Shares in big data provider WANdisco (WAND) have raced ahead by 62.5p today on the back of a new product launch. For those who followed my advice to have a nibble at 493p on January 6th the reward is pretty clear. That WANdisco is making progress is without doubt but are we all getting a bit ahead of ourselves?


Wandisco – a 2014 PE of 103 but might still be cheap

2013-01-06 18:00:42

Normally I would consider that a company that will be loss making unto, calendar 2014 but which at 493p trades on a 2014 PE of 103 would be a slam dunk sell. Wandisco (WAND) is just that company and it cannot be described as a tradition Benjamin Graham style value investment. But before Lucien Miers thinks about shorting the stock, I suggest that he reads on. This is not as simple as it sounds.
