Looking at the numbers I notice EPS is half of that of same period last year .New product role out does not mean they have orders for it then, its just rolled out as available to clients if they want to upgrade?
I am holding but fearful of jumping into such a vicious down trend However It might well be over sold ?
The systems roll out is to some serious players, so we may look forward to a bright future after all the uncertainty. Well done Universe, you have delivered the promise.Now we await the effect on the bottom line.and the share price to climb back over the 200 day 11p will do nicely as a start...
Well good old sod and his law are alive and well.Just when you have hung on and hung on and on and you cut your position what happens?Volume goes up and the price starts to move This looks like it could be a significant step up..........?
The 200 day moving average is not looking very healthy ..We are in need of an update.. Who is now in Billy,s shoes and how is the business performing. Are margins being maintained and how is the business developing. How will Brexit affect things .What is going on?
Good plan if it works : -))
At the last count I had 38 in my portfolio.
A bit skewed to oil and gas exploration but with a few tech, financial and healthcare sprinkled on top.
Overall, slightly in profit but with a few dogs dragging it down.
38 is far too many so I ought to do some weeding, but which ones ? No good taking out the dogs because they may come good one day, or may be useful to write off against cg. No good taking out the performers cos they are making money.
Just have to keep working at it.
(UNG is staying.....for now...nice up tick this morning, taking us back to where we were a week ago!!)
Hello Prior,Good morning to you.
A good and valid point.
I have also burnt lots of hard earned money on sure fire get rich quick stocks .To the extent that I will not need to pay gains tax for many years.
I see that someone has been mopping up stock on Friday.I would like to think that it may well be Directors.
If we have news of insider buying at this level then the prospects for a good return may well be realistic.
Both these companies have been in my Portfolio for some time and I have endured the Roller coaster ride with both of them.I do not like Roller Coasters one little bit
The benefits of a diverse Portfolio ???.A diamond miner and a credit card company called Card clear, Both went almost to the brink of extinction at about the same time!
Yes I have been a UNG holder for that long.Did take some profits from Card clear. I have watched my investment in both FDI and UNG arise phoenix like from the edge of the grave.
Both companies are now doing well and it would be nice to raise my investment in both.So divide the money between the two or put it into FDI for a short term gain when production is achieved and then then Put some of it into UNG.
Will FDi suffer profit taking on the News ,who knows what will happen.External world affairs may alter the entire playing field.
Sounds like a play between high risk, high reward vs steady single digit growth.
I think I've got a few too many of the first group (to my cost !), so I'm trying to get a bit of stability back into my portfolio.
UNG has the potential to double in the next year or two and as such is less risky.
Good luck with your Firestone investment, if you choose that path.
Prior I would like to believe the story.I have to choose at the moment between investing a further £5000 into UNG or Firestone Diamonds. My Investment in Lucara Diamonds has given me a return of 5x my original stake.Firestone is to put it simply ,Lucara as it was 3 years ago.
Lucara has just paid me a dividend of $5000 CAD.
I believe through careful research and 10 years of involvement with these diamond miners that Firestone will repeat the Lucara chart almost exactly.So given this Scenario where would you put your money ?
This is not a ramp . I have no need to push these shares There are millions in issue and a few thousand here or there will make not the slightest impact on the price.
Investment is deciding in a given time frame between stocks which are most likely to give us a sure return. What will you do with your £5000 ?
Excellent buying opportunity (imo). The results show continued growth. Ok, so there is a slight delay to the roll out of the new contracts, but they're still there and will be bringing in revenue when they get going.
The next 6 months will show a complete turnaround in the sp, and the business.
What a pity the results are not quite up to expectations. But looking at the five year chart they have done a great rescue job.This little stumble should not be taken out of context.The Finals will be awaited with baited breath.
Sp at a 5yr high just now. Has risen significantly in the last couple of years so clearly they're doing something right. The results show steady progress and therefore there's no reason why the sp shouldn't continue to creep Northwards.
I've not got funds for this one so I'm not going to post a buy recc.. But for someone looking for a relatively safe growth stock you could do do worse than UNG.
I have just noticed this announcement and as for as I can see they are new to UNG. Maybe will move s/p North on Monday:- Universe announces that it has received notice that funds managed by Alto Invest hold, in aggregate, 7,227,400 ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the capital of the Company. This represents 3.1% of the total voting rights of the Company.
Gordon, have a look at the 12 month chart... UNG have almost doubled in that time.
This at a time when the FTSE 100 has fallen from c.7000 to c.6000
I for one am looking forward to further good news and further rises in sp. We have that in common, I feel.
Good luck, TP
Any thoughts on the effect of Booker takeover of Budgens and Londis, will they continue to use UNG software or want to use their own systems? .What was known at the time of our takeover of Spedi. ,Or is it a opportunity for UNG to extend its services within the Booker group.??
Sorry GM, don't come here often. I still have these in paper form in a file somewhere under the bed and as a result they're not at the forefront of my thoughts. UNG is well under the radar being such a small company. Hopefully after the last two years of progress and this latest Annual Report, they will become more well known and more investor interest will be generated.
Universe is a profitable company with a sound range of services and products.
Should improve over time. How long ?? Don't know, which is why they're under the bed !
Excellent set of results available on company website. Year on year improvements are growing.
First class! This company has changed beyond recognition over the last couple of years. Still small, but future growth appears to be assured.
