Advanced Oncotherapy is On the Upward Move Again

Hello Share Movers. I have called your attention more than once to a firm called Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). It is using the technology based on the Hadron Collider to develop a cancer treatment that is much cheaper and less bulky than older machines.

Whether or not you also climb on board is a matter for you, of course. But this is becoming an interesting situation – and worth talking about again on this tremendous web site.

Advanced has been in the news because it uses the kind of technology to treat cancer which the parents of that unfortunate lad with a brain tumour chose  - and consequently hit the headlines so hard a few weeks ago.

There was a lot of related publicity about Advanced then and it shot the share price up from about 3p to 5.2p – a goodly jump. This week the shares are on the move again.

But there are one or two things about Advanced which possibly deserve an airing here.

For one thing the machines it makes are yet to be fully approved by everyone. The firm is not making  money at the moment and all our hopes are on the future.

It seems to pay large wages and in any event this sort of venture costs a lot of development money. Presumably some of the many investments they have had from small investors is going towards that vital research.

The company says it already has £200 million of orders, which is good. And though losses are widening now, it could all be very different a few years down the line.

I have heard an interview with the company’s big cheese. He comes across well and he is very confident over progress so far.

Cancer, as we all know, is becoming even more of a problem, given that we are all living longer and have longer to develop it. So you may feel this is a good project to invest in, in the confident hope that it will ease some human suffering.

I think the share will probably stablise as news coverage dries until the next big development. But eventually I expect this share to blossom even more.

It’s being debated now in the Punter’s Return.
