Versarien ( Versarien (LON:VRS) ) – 44.25p – £65.3m – PER 147.9

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End September 2017 – Revenues up by 167% to £4.38m (H1 2016: £1.64m), Loss Before Tax almost halved to £0.77m (H1 2016: £1.47m), Cash of £0.35m (£1.51m last time) and lots of bullish talk.

On the other hand the company may continue spending a fortune on advertising and end up dead in the water.
