Yep, completely agree. I was a little concerned that such large trades were 'hiding' at
the end of the day, as you point out multiples that fit being ISA.
Might be able to get to the AGM, having been to every AGM for so many years, it is the
RNS that matter and as impressive a presentation might be, and always coming away
feeling reassured, the most important news will be that delivered to the market. This
AGM will most probably be dominated by criticism, understandably, unless a major
RNS Monday or Tuesday ...delivered to the market.
Yes, definitely a bed and ISA. Close spread between the two deals which were executed seconds apart, and the second deal was for a few shares less than the first. I think it is very positive that someone wants to commit their whole ISA allocation for the year to AFC as opposed to another share or fund. Must have faith that there will be significant profits that need protection from CGT.
Sadly I can't make the AGM this year, but I look forward to reports from those of you who can.
Beach, I'm sure you've commented on this before? A reminder to you, these are purely bed and ISAs so there is not a big seller out there. For the price to stay at this level with minimal other buys/sells confirms this as the SP would have almost certainly dropped further if they were indeed sells.
Totally agree TP - millions are handed out for projects like this and you all we see this shambolic mess that is totally meaningless - if I was one of the companies involved in this project I'd be furious as it reflects very badly on those parties - shoddy in the extreme !
Wow, too much information to take in at this time of the morning. What a confusing web page. Whoever designed that shambles needs sacking!
Clearly had a chaotic childhood... or is it the work of a child?
I am absolutely inline with you, no patience anymore, to many years, to many promises and delays. BUT other companies make huge losses and life from substitutions, the Solar Panel industry has showns us a good example to what this leads (lots of bankrupt companies). I am inline with AFC to have a viable product which can stand on its own legs without substitution, if fine, but it should be able without) although now ther eis no reason anymore to hold back and contracts have to follow from now to the end of this year !
On the other side a chief financial officer buying stock on the market for 25 K is a strong sign and a first step , give me a little bit better feeling at least !
If AFC are doing this right they will have at least a few customers, pens ready to sign on the dotted line as soon as De Nora do validate. If not it will send out a message that AFC are struggling to convince potential customers.
As every week passes we see other green energy companies signing contracts and increasing orders whilst AFC appear to continually look for perfection.
My patience is wearing as thin as my hair, although not sure which will disappear first.
well more like 25k isn't it...it's a proper amount....a lot of PIs think that generally directors have wads of cash they should be splashing around, but in my experience that is frequently not the case...so i am a little bit impressed...
All this buzz, b ehappy that he bought and invested as one of the first into the company his own money ! Shows some kind of confirdence !
He is or will be seen as insider in his position, just to clearify this, but as I can see, everything he knows is known by all others. He can do so 5 or 10 days before a news release, it snot yet clear, if he does not know the news ! Everything here is very unclear.
So news can or could be released end of this week, if anyone has a different info please inform.
Anyway , I think he knows what he does and I am more then happy about this sign to the market !
Waste2tricity a partner of AFC and Powerhouse Energy has released news of using a Powerhouse system that converts waste plastics and tyres into energy via hydrogen to take advantage of the refusal of China to take most of the UK's waste plastics/tyres.
Powerhouse released a RNS stating that 'although the release contains forward looking statements which, while PowerHouse believes to be materially correct and appropriately indicative, are not necessarily reflective of future market conditions, or of any contract terms that may be entered into in the future'.
Reading between the lines, PHE have obviously thought that the release is a bit premature or/and written in a way that might make investors feel that contracts are imminent. They appear quite rightly to be covering themselves.
Would be good if when AFC release the next QNL there is a mention of both Waste2 tricity and Powerhouse Energy had released, after all both these companies are partnered with AFC.
Anyone else notice, that whereas a few months ago, AFC had a direct link to their partners on their web site. I can no longer find this link, strange or am I reading too much into this.
When our CEO first took charge, with plans of fast tracking the technology, bolstering sales, and giving targets for the company, it produced excitement and anticipation of just where this company could be going. Especially, when Mr Abramovich came in with his investment. Mr Bond was hailed as the New Messiah. Instead of that, he has just turned out to be a very naughty..........You can finish that yourself. At first he was very communicative, but this has tailed off as the years have gone by. The reasons for this could be as follows:
1) He was unaware of the complexity , of such a disruptive new, innovative, technology and was quite obviously out of his depth. Mr Williamson(his predecessor?) had already given a timeline for commercialisation which is proving to be closer to what is happening now.
2) It is possible that he is also losing patience with the company, with things not panning out as predicted and taking far longer than he had expected. Which meant that information put out in RNS's were things he had taken in good faith only to find out later, they were wrong.
3)The third option is that there is so much going on in the background, with either Government, International or domestic pending contracts, all of which have to remain confidential and secret, and that nothing is able to be put out to the stock market, until agreed release dates.
Which apart from regurgitating all the old news doesn't give him much to write about if he is not going to breach confidentiality agreements. What would be nice to hear from him is his assessment of where the company currently stands, how soon until that first illusive contract is going to be announced and whether we can celebrate it, at the local café or the Dorchester. With the silence ringing in my ears I'm off for a golfing weekend. GLA
I have never ever ever seen a company so bad in communication and follow up as AFC and their board or Ceo, no matter who was Ceo at that time !!! Never ever, nor was I invested in one with this bad communication ! Thank you for this experience AFC :-) .. this is called sarcasm
There is no panic over a lack of the QNL. Just frustration, in that it appears to be the only way the company CEO knows how to communicate. RNS's are as rare as hen's teeth from the company, except when it comes to asking for money, approval of increasing the shares in circulation, or giving themselves share options, or pay rises. It has been like this for years now, and the QNL is our only means of discovering what might be going on. There have been broadcast interviews, where you would have thought the info given in those would at least be accurate, and true. Alas, even those have shown to offer false dawns. It is quite possible that they have forgotten we exist, or just find us irksome and irrelevant. At least the QNL acknowledges the fact that we are here, and still waiting for something to happen. God knows why, .....it never does!
They are turning me into Marvin the robot. Helllppp........
