REACT Group – states “pleased to have delivered another period of good progress”… but it’s behind expectations!
Filtronic – argues “healthy improvement… in line with internal forecasts”, but what does that mean financially?...
5.5p to 2.5p in 9 working days- the Vast Resources shitshow in full swing with ANOTHER bailout placing
Hello, Share Mashers. As a bit of a bloodbath sweeps through most of our shares, just one of my portfolio has put on any significant value. That’s because Zoo Digital (ZOO), a Sheffield company which provides subtitles for movies and tv, has posted an encouraging trading update. At its AGM, the Chairman Gillian Wilmot said the company is seeing ‘strong momentum’.
Hello, Share Casters. Companies connected with TV and films look worth consideration in the present uncertain climate. One of my babies in this field is Zoo Digital (ZOO). It’s produced numbers fairly recently that show Covid has not been a problem for it. And no wonder, when you supply dubbing and subtitles to foreign TV shows. The pandemic confined zillions of us to our sofas – and it was hard for programme makers to keep up their normal output.
Hello Share Fans. One of my share babies making progress during the lockdowns is Zoo Digital Group (ZOO). This is a niche company which supplies subtitles and dubbing to film and tv companies who want to sell their wares to foreign audiences. And it won't have escaped your notice that TV channels have been broadcasting loads of foreign shows and films to fill the gaps caused because covid restrictions have limited the making of home grown productions. The share price tells a happy story. It's risen from 92p to above 130p in three months.
Hello, Share Troopers. Another company set to do well both now and in the future accelerated by the covid crisis looks to be Zoo Digital Group (ZOO). I’ve commended this Sheffield outfit to you before, and its latest trading update supports my optimism. This is a company which is cloud based, but before you stop reading allow me to spell out my belief in a rosy future.
A “Confirmation of successful fundraising of £7.4m”-titled announcement from self-styled “world-leading, technology-enabled localisation and media services” group Zoo Digital (ZOO). Just how successful is the fundraising?...
Hello, Share Thrashers. Let’s consider one of my earlier recommendations that’s almost doubled in the last three months. This was not a prediction of great genius on my part as the rise was... well, quite predictable. I’m talking about a Sheffield company which is taking advantage of the boom in telly-watching caused by enforced home captivity...
Hello, Share Toasters. A share which I’ve earlier recommended has been a disappointment lately. That’s because Zoo Digital (ZOO) is a contractor to TV and film companies and we all know how they’ve been affected by the pandemic. But a report to Zoo’s annual general meeting shows that the company is actually thriving...
Hello, Share Changers. The Covid-19 attack has had interesting effects on armchair tycoons like us. One bizarre example is that shares in Zoom Technologies rocketed by 250%. Only then was it realised that punters were getting mixed up between this company which has nothing to do with internet conferencing and another Zoom which does (Zoom Video Communications).
Hello, Share Pickers. With ITV announcing a disappointing performance, you might think that the television world is taking a big hit from the virus. But the opposite may be the truth. ITV may have lost a lot of advertising, as there’s no point in blowing your trumpet when the shops are shut. But loads of locked-down folks don’t have enough imagination to turn to their pastimes other than the screen in the corner...
Zoo Digital (ZOO) has updated including arguing “good progress” towards being “a leading next-generation media localisation business that offers a unique combination of software and customer service to the film and TV industry's leading players”. With a current market cap of sub £60 million, sounds good…
Previously writing on technology services provider to the entertainment industry, Zoo Digital (ZOO) it was in January from November “confident in the prospects” to now “significantly below expectations” – I concluding with the shares heading towards 60p that, despite CEO Stuart Green arguing “we are now enjoying a growth in orders from our largest clients and expect to add significant new accounts during the remainder of the second half”, to continue to avoid. Now a “Year End Trading Update”…
Hello, Share Pals. I’ve been looking at an old Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes classic called the Scarlet Claw. It reminds me somehow of the tax return I should be filling in before the January 31st deadline. I hope you’ve done yours.
I wrote on Zoo Digital (ZOO) in September (“confident in the prospects”, so why the share price slump? HERE), concluding, despite the shares then falling to circa 140p, that; ‘I thus suggest the valuation leaves no room for any disappointment – and remind that great valuations tend to lead to great disappointment if expectations are not met. Indeed, even if strong growth is delivered, since the valuation is so far from what is being financially produced, there is still significant scope for sentiment to see the shares lower. As such, currently a sell / avoid.’ The shares closed yesterday at 115p and today a “Trading Update”…
An AGM update from tv and movie subtitling and dubbing group Zoo Digital (ZOO) includes “we anticipate overall full year performance will be in line with expectations”. The shares have though responded to the update currently approaching 20% lower, at circa 140p. Hmmm…
Hello, Share Shovers. There are times when I'm so confident that a share is worth your further investigation that I feel I should keep on banging the drum. I sometimes do this when there is no immediate news to go on. And that's for the simple reason that when jolly news does break it's not always the best time to dive in. One should try waiting till the kettle is off the boil.
Hello Share Minders. When I first commended Zoo Digital (ZOO) to you in October the share was 63p when it had recently jumped over three months by 300%. Now it’s 149p. So another increase of much more than 100%. But in my view there is scope for even more improvement. I do not have more hard news to back this view, but I have been reviewing why this company is so popular with so many show business brands.
Hello, Share Carriers. Zoo Digital (ZOO) has a catchy, simple name yet it labours under a jargonistic description as a ‘provider of localisation and digital distribution for the global entertainment industry’. I do wish companies which expect us to invest in them would use language everyone understands.
Hello Share Packers. Very sadly, my Christmas present has died. I’ve always wanted to see Ken Dodd live. And my thoughtful son Jack bought me a ticket to his May appearance in Manchester - and Doddy’s death is a dire blow to anyone with a sense of humour. Which has nothing to do with my subject for today. As now’t currently strikes my fancy by way of a blistering tip, I’ll cheekily enlarge on a couple of thoughts on this glittering website by the brilliant David Scott. He begins a long article with a couple of the best ways to gauge share value.
Five months ago, this tired old punter suggested you take a look at Zoo Digital (ZOO). Historically, this Sheffield outfit has been a big failure for me. Though I’m gradually clawing back my original stake.
Hello, Share Swoopers. Back in the mists of time, I was keen on shares in the gaming industry. The shine went off when I discovered nearly all my investments were plunging down the wrong path. At the same time, another company to let me down was Zoo Digital (ZOO), which I stupidly thought was a designer of games. It’s not. It had revolutionary ways of producing dvds for the entertainment industry.
Zoo Digital was identified quite recently as a potential technical recovery situation, and it would appear that the stock has delivered for the bulls in a decent way, especially over the past couple of weeks.
If there is a theme in the technical analysis this week it is just to show that the name of the game here is not always related to momentum buying, but that on occasion there are very useful looking opportunities to bottom fish. This is something which can be gleaned from the present daily chart set up for Zoo Digital (ZOO).
I've just had a very good day with a few long-held penny shares. They include Zoo Digital (ZOO) up 11%, Enables It (EIT) up 22% and a massive 57% hike by Ascent Resources (AST).
