Hello, Share Trackers. How’s this for a good set of numbers? One of my favourite shares, Water Intelligence (WATR) has just reported for the year ended December 2020. Group revenue rose by 17%. And the pre-tax profit - always the more important figure - was up by 78% on last time.
Hello, Share Runners. Goodness me! One of my favourite shares is certainly sparkling. It’s rare that rosy future prospects come with such a sterling current performance. But that’s what’s happening at Water Intelligence (WATR).
Hello, Share Scoopers. One of my most likely shares to rise (in my humble reckoning) has just shared some news which could brighten its prospects in the fairly near and far future. We can thank President Biden for these glad tidings. The new administration seeks to modernise America's drinking water, sewage and stormwater systems. It will also ‘tackle new contaminants, and support clean water infrastructure across rural America’.
Hello Share Munchers. The rosy prospects of one of my humble commendations continues to grow. Water Intelligence (WATR) has just collected another big customer in the USA and has signed up to boost its services to another. I humbly suggest that its present rate of expansion may feed into the share price for some weeks to come...
Hello, Share Smashers. Just in is a 2020 update from a favourite of mine, Water Intelligence (WATR). And, as expected, it is very encouraging. The company which fixes leaks in a very scientific, yet simple to operate, way has not been hit by Covid, including it being classed as an "essential service provider"...
Hello, Share Grabbers. To be on the safe side, bearing in mind what happened to Beaufort Securities, I use five different brokers. For some strange reason my portfolio in the best of them, IG, is doing a lot better than the rest. This is nothing to do with IG, of course. It’s just that I happen to have a dream team of shares with this broker, like Ceres Power (CWR) and City of London Investment Group (CLIG). But coming up fast on the rails is Water Intelligence (WATR)...
Hello, Share Swampers. One share which inconveniently fell on my commendation, but which has stormed back is Water Intelligence (WATR). Though listed on the London Stock Exchange, it has the advantage of doing most of its business across the Pond where companies have not been as virus-smashed as they are here. Currently, the share is at a record high above 450p compared to a virus low towards 250p. It has a market capitalisation of £77 million...
Hello, Share Baggers. A sad story of the moment is all those folks in Oregon who’ve lost their homes and their possessions. Could you live with that? The tragedy will focus minds on the value of water in that beleaguered state and its neighbour California. The shortage of rainfall over there has caused fires to spread and destroy.
Hello, Share Tweakers. Water may be in good supply in Britain’s rainy July, but there’s a real shortage in the middle and west of America. Folks there really need a company that can deal with leaks and wring the best out of meagre supplies. That’s why I’ve previously commended to you an ambitious outfit called Water Intelligence (WATR). Until now, the share price hasn’t lived up to expectations though and, after some useful upward activity last week, I’m still down about 4%...
Hello, Share Shakers. We often say on this startlingly good website that a beleaguered company’s shares are defying gravity. But there are some outfits unfairly held back by the same unreliable force. One such firm, I suggest, it is condign to consider is Water Intelligence (WATR). And just like companies that suddenly stop ‘defying gravity’, a reverse process could take place for this enterprising venture...
Hello Share Trundlers. As predicted, the full-year numbers from Water Intelligence (WATR) look to be a bumper set and the share price rose on the news. A few weeks ago I was well down on my fairly new investment and now I’m nearly back to par. I’m rather confident that better is still to come. Let’s have a look at the trading update info...
Hello Share Prinkers. The more imaginative sci-fi fans among us claim that water is the gold of the future. It will become such a valuable commodity because it’s going to get much scarcer. And while this notion may seem fanciful, that some areas will become more drought-prone is borne out by present-day facts. Consider California and Australia, for example. One company which I brought to your attention last year should benefit hugely from growing water scarcity...
Hello Share Chasers. Never let it be said that I’m not topical in my observations. And during a hot summer, our minds turn to water and its conservation. Not so long ago I suggested you look at Water Intelligence (WATR)...
Hello, Share Munchers. There was a time when day traders were rather common. And in those days, spreads were no smaller and broker commissions were generally higher. Yet nowadays hardly any armchair tycoons like us end up short-term trading, never mind using a 24-hour turnaround.
Hello, Share Splashers. As the weather warms up, let’s probe a company which has a lot to do with domestic swimming pools. Water Intelligence (WATR) doesn't supply them, but it keeps a close watch on them with some whiz-bang technology. And it makes a lot of income by finding and stopping up leaks (may I topically plug my famous share winners' book Poolside Tycoon at this stage)...
This morning saw annual results released for Water Intelligence Plc (WATR), which owns American Leak Detection, Inc. This primarily US-based business (clue is in the name) uses infrared and other advanced technologies to find and fix water leaks. I’m sceptical of US companies on AIM but will try to approach this with an open mind!
In the case of Water Intelligence (WATR) it can be seen from the daily chart trace that this is a share which has been around for quite a while, it is just that it has not hit technical analysis radar until now. Below I share a share price target.
