Net contract wins - a rather gimmicky heading to today's RNS proclaims, "It's all about the data". I don't like that.
D4t4 Solutions Plc (AIM: D4T4), the AIM-listed data solutions provider, is pleased to report a number of new contract wins in its Data Management and Data Collection business areas.
Following the release of D4t4's half year results to 30 September 2017, the Company has converted four significant opportunities from its strong pipeline of potential business...
More details are given. However, what is noticeable by its absence, is any comment on performance against market expectations. A listed company CEO told me a few years ago that contract win announcements are meaningless, unless they state that the company is exceeding market expectations. I tend to agree. Although it's reassuring to know that pipeline is converting into sales. So today's announcement does at least reassure that a profit warning is unlikely, and that the company seems to be on a roll. Maybe forecasts could be increased in future, who knows?
An upbeat-sounding update, together with attractive growth & value stats below, make me feel this share could be worthy of a closer look;
My opinion - I can't remember much about this company, so have re-read my notes here from Apr 2017. I liked the share then, and it's a bit cheaper now. So this does indeed look interesting. Although I don't really understand the company, so am a bit wary of investing for that reason. The numbers look attractive though, and a positive update today can only help.
Core business areas of Data Management and Data Collection benefitting from strong sales pipeline
Just what we need to see:-

CITY - Not one I follow or upto speed on the newsflow but I have had a quick look at the charts over various timeframes.
On iii 3 yrs weekly - Quite a roller coaster ride to get right! with bollinger bands ranging from lows of 40 to 66p so currently not cheap but RSI, OBV & MACD promising.
Best looking for me on iii 6 month - There appears a positive "Cup saucer handle" shape so while above 200 ema is positive at 55p. RSI & MACD rising or turning positive. If 62p can get broken upwards and hold with volume I would start to look at likely targets from the "Cup" shape low of 44p less 62p (breakout) = 18p potential which would come in about 80p which on 3yr weekly would be testing highs.
Below is a quick look at supports / Resistances with strong resistance at 66p
What do u think of CITY me & a friend both hold we are thinking of + more?
I looked at the price u paid for FDP I think we could do with your judgement on stocks
etc.! I am sure u saw sale of FDP by Dir. I am not 2 good with technology! Paul

Thanks for info. Sounds like you have done well and found what works for you. I get the feeling with D4T4 that it is similiar to First Derivarites ( FDP ) just at a much early stage and size which the latter I have done well with running with it. Good to get in lower than directors buys so agree with you and hope we will be proved right for doing so over time and the delayed contracts get announced to the market which then results in recovery of SP.
