I Read The News Today Oh Boy! 4-Feb-2019

Morning all!

CentralNic ( CentralNic (LON:CNIC) ) – 50p – £86m – PER 12

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End December 2018 – In-line, some board changes also announced.

I don't yet have a view either way here but the Stocko EPS figures (forecast 20%+ growth in 2018E and 2019E) suggest it is worth a further look – So I will, hopefully this week.

DX Group ( DX (Group) (LON:DX.) ) – 9.2p – £53m – PER 24.5

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End December 2018 – Encouraging progress, trading in-line with managements expectations, expecting a return to EBITDA positive.

Will wait to see Actuals as it is most likely a return to profitability is still lacking.

Trakm8 Holdings ( Trakm8 Holdings (LON:TRAK) ) – 30.5p – £15.2m – PER 9.9

Trading Update – I am just not sure what this is telling me which I usually interpret as it being a little too early in the morning or there's some hoodwinking going on.

Not enough (clear) information (to take on board at this time of the day) here to get me any more interested today than I was yesterday. 

As always, all comment most welcome!

My morning smallcap tweet: Trakm8 not revving.

Taptica International (LON:TAP), Trakm8 Holdings (LON:TRAK), Flybe (LON:FLYB), Versarien (LON:VRS), RhythmOne (LON:RTHM)

Taptica (TAP) mooted offer for RhythmOne now a recommended offer with TAP holders getting 50.1% of whole. Plans $15m discretionary share buy back. I hold.
Trakm8 (TRAK) guides FY rev 25% to 35% down but loss as expected. Blames Fleet order opportunities (rather than lost) because of Brexit uncertainty.
Flybe Group (FLYB) a very preliminary, short and highly conditional outline contingency proposal from Mr Tinkler (who is he?) which envisages a capital injection and replacement of the funding provided by Connect Airways. Approach does not contemplate an offer for the whole of Flybe or any other acquisition structure. It will only be provided if the sale of Flybe's operating businesses to Connect Airways does not occur. Board poo poos it.
Versarien (VRS) over a month since it announced some MOU's in China. Still no actual sales announced.
RhythmOne (RTHM) see TAP

There is an ahead of expectations update from Kainos (LON:KNOS) this morning, with all divisions looking positive; however, on a PER approaching 30 they look fully priced to me, especially in fragile markets. A PER of over 2 doesn't appeal, either.

In reply to post #443423

Agreed Kainos (LON:KNOS) seems a bit over valued - I didn't cover as it's over £500m and was pushed for time. Thanks for adding the comment.
