Strip Tinning – director share purchase doesn’t inspire recovery confidence...

Previously writing on supplier of specialist connectors to the automotive sector Strip Tinning Holdings (STG), earlier this week I noted the shares down to 115p from a 185p AIM IPO little over three months earlier after a trading warning, though the company stating “great care is being taken to ensure that overheads are reduced where appropriate in line with lower than budgeted sales… in addition, the company is currently putting through a number of price rises across its product range”. And now a director share purchase. Good news?...

Strip Tinning – trading warning little over three months since listing!, AIM IPO roll-call of shame...

On 16th February Strip Tinning Holdings (STG), describing itself as “a leading supplier of specialist connectors to the automotive sector”, was “pleased to announce the admission… to trading on AIM… £11.5 million of gross proceeds have been raised… at a price of 185 pence per ordinary share… £8.0 million for the company and £3.5 million for certain selling shareholders… The directors believe the placing and admission will enable the company to accelerate its growth plans and underpin its early mover advantage in the EV battery sector, further enhance its profile in the markets in which it operates and assist with attracting, retaining and incentivising high calibre employees”. So what of now a “trading update” little over three months later?...

Kromek – is “foreseeable future” this time longer than three and a half months?...

Previously writing on group now describing itself as “a leading developer of radiation and bio-detection technology solutions for the advanced imaging and CBRN detection segments” Kromek (KMK), in July with the shares down towards 15p I reviewed “well-placed to capitalise on the substantial opportunities”, concluding still a sell. It today provides an update, with its year ended 30th April.

essensys – “resilient performance underpinned by customer demand”. Really?...

Previously writing on essensys plc (ESYS), which describes itself as a “leading global provider of mission critical software-as-a-service platforms and on-demand cloud services to the flexible workspace industry”in July with the shares at 300p I concluded the future improvement needed to justify the valuation meant the stance was avoid / sell. Today a half-year trading update and the shares, having last closed at 245p, currently below 130p!

James Fisher & Sons – “the board remains confident in the group's strategy”. Er, why the “detailed” reviews then?!

A trading update from marine service provider James Fisher & Sons (FSJ) includes that “revenue in the quarter ended 30 September 2021 was 7.6% higher than Q3 2020 and 8.7% higher than Q2 of 2021… The board now anticipates Underlying Operating Profit for the full year, before separately disclosed items, to be in the range of £27m – £32m”. So why are the shares currently, at around 530p, more than 30% lower?…

SmartSpace Software – from “confident” to “lower growth assumptions”… in just over 2 months!

Previously writing on space booking and management technology company SmartSpace Software (SMRT), in August with the shares at 150p I concluded with even the forecasts versus the reported actual delivery I continued to avoid. The shares last closed at 95.5p and are currently circa 80p on the back of a trading update…

Xeros Technology – interims, “significant milestones with a number of market launches taking place”? Er...

Previously writing on Xeros Technology Group (XSG), in July with the shares higher to 232.5p I concluded at that juncture still a jam tomorrow avoid / sell. The shares last closed at 200p and the group has today announced results for the first half of 2021, emphasising “significant milestones with a number of market launches taking place”. So why are the shares currently at 185.5p?…

Seraphine – BUMP’s shareholders with a warning on trading…having only listed in July! IPO roll-call of shame...

“Trading Statement” announcement from Seraphine Group (BUMP), a maternity and nursing wear company which only listed on 16th July. Should be fine then, a mere just over 2 months since listing…

Mirriad Advertising – interims note “advertising spending is now coming back”. Good news then… No!?

Previously writing on Mirriad Advertising (MIRI), in July despite the shares slumping to 34p I concluded the valuation looked to remain plain daft; strong bargepole / sell. The company has today announced results for the first half of 2021 headlined “New deals, significant inventory and record US commercial activity drive adoption”. Having last closed at 32.5p, the shares are now below 30p – so what’s the story?…

Synectics – after recent somewhat share price recovery, “Trading Update”...

Previously writing on self-styled “a leader in the design, integration and support of advanced security and surveillance systems” Synectics (SNX), in June I concluded that I remain cautious on the overall recovery here and thus still only presently on the watchlist. Today a “Trading Update” and the shares currently 13.5% lower on the back of it, at 112.5p…

Smartspace Software – having been relying on second-half weighting…

“Trading Statement” from 'Integrated Space Management Software' company Smartspace Software (SMRT) commences “in its interim statement, published in October 2019, the company noted its expectation that the year would be second-half weighted whilst also highlighting the unpredictability of the group's enterprise business”… Uh oh…

Mobile Tornado – results blown off course by deployment delays

September-announced half-year results from “provider of instant communication mobile applications to the enterprise market” Mobile Tornado (MBT) included Chairman Jeremy Fenn emphasising “we have competed against major players in the PTT space in highly complex tenders, and won… I have no doubt that the significantly enhanced credibility we have gained has put us in a strong position as we engage with similar organisations… In Israel, we have a strong pipeline of new deals which we are confident will be developed further as the IDEN shutdown approaches at the end of the current calendar year”. Now “Full Year Trading Update”

Veltyco – creditors “materially in excess of the group's current cash resources”… and that’s not all…

Previously writing on Veltyco (VLTY), in September I noted the shares rising above 4.5p though it’s ‘keep the lights on’ funding – and possibly still not for very long and it still, even from an increased to £3.75 million market cap, remains good luck! – I certainly continue to avoid. Today a “Trading Update” commencing; “Trading within the group's Bet90 sportsbook and casino business, in which Veltyco has a 51% interest, continues to be in line with management expectations, with Bet90 achieving its highest revenues since launch”. The shares have currently responded, er… to around 1.875p, approaching a further 50% lower on the day!...

The 10th September-announced half-year results from “regenerative medical devices” group Tissue Regenix (TRX) included “we anticipated that the year would be significantly weighted towards the second half, as announced on the 4 June… We continue to expect that this will be the case… demand for our products is strong”. Now a “Trading Update”

i-nexus Global – from AIM IPO “strong competitive position” to “revenue and closing cash balances will be below expectations” in just over a year!

In June last year “i-nexus Global plc (INX), a provider of cloud-based Strategy Execution software to Global 5000 companies”, was pleased to announce admission to AIM, raising £10 million at 79p per share with CEO Simon Crowther emphasising “the power of our software, our outstanding customer base, strong competitive position, high levels of recurring revenue and large addressable market”… The shares last closed at 34.5p and today a “Trading Update”

Nanoco – “pleased to announce” results, so why are the shares still further lower?

“Nanoco Group plc (LSE: NANO), a world leader in the development and manufacture of cadmium-free quantum dots and other specific nanomaterials emanating from our technology platform, is pleased to announce its preliminary results for the year ended 31 July 2018”. The shares have currently responded… er, circa 8% lower heading towards 30p…

TLA Worldwide – from ‘looks forward with confidence’ to banking covenants breach “likely” & Nomad resignation in little more than 3 months!?

Having previously really taken the biscuit with its 2016 ‘bury bad news’ Christmas sweepstake effort, today an intra-day (10:35am) “Trading and Business Update” from TLA Worldwide (TLA). I suggest these factors don’t bode well…

HaloSource – “significantly below” trading warning & more bailout funds needed; step forward you know who…

Writing last month on HaloSource (HALO), I suggested to be wary of ‘pleasing’ news here as a next bailout fundraising looked necessary in the near-term. Yesterday, at an attempted no-one watching o’clock (6:09pm), an announcement; “Fundraise and Change of Adviser”

We May Not Be Able to Set Much Store on this Store's Shares Soaring

Hello, Share Magnates. As I become ever more worried about the prospects of High Street chains, I need to express concerns about Dunelm (DNLM), the household goods purveyor. For one thing, it gave a warning on May 25 that trading conditions were worse than it had expected.
