  1. In reply to: LookingConfident on Friday 20/05/05 04:06pm I did have a close look at this game, and my feeling is it will be close. Penrith really are playing poorly atm, but you could be right about them having a point to prove. It will be interesting to see how Cronulla go without Kimorley, The sharks did beat penrith by 6 points (at home) without him in round 1 and they've had some good recent wins away. Dykes is not a bad replacement so I think +6.5 points to cronulla is reasonable value, but they need to be on their game. We must be getting closer to going out for a beer and a bite again, if you like you can invite Jason and Barry.......wouldn't that be a laugh http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/laughingsmiley.gif Tex.
  2. Great to see The Dragons kick the pengpeng-panthers butts last week, I think they will find it harder against Newcastle this week, with so many players in the Origin game. 14:11:47 6402 * RUGBY LEAGUE:NRL R11 MELB-BDGS LINE IncET BULLDOGS (+8.5Pts) $100 @ $1.85= $185.00 18:58:20 6412 * RUGBY LEAGUE:NRL R11 PENR-SHKS LINE IncET SHARKS (+6.5Pts) $100 @ $1.85= $185.00 END OF TRACE Taking a couple of roughies this week http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif
  3. Many directors are on the boards of more than one company, it makes sense to have Croft on the board because he is now part of the UK operation. SKG needed a distribution base in the UK, so they bought a company that already has some form of infrastructure and managment. I wouldn't have a clue when the company will be proftable, they have only been turning small numbers but that may well change now that SKG have added on their chain of products. I really don't see the sinister side of a directors resignation in this instance, but a box head on HC thinks you're on the money http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/laughingsmiley.gif All the best, Tex.
  4. In reply to: mongrel on Wednesday 18/05/05 05:17pm http://www.skynetglobal.com.au/skynet/directors.aspx I'm just posting what I see. Your previous statement says "That makes 3 in recent times", but you failed to post that Sew Hou Ho has taken up a more active position in Singapore.....so now we are down to two directors. Tim Ebbeck left 7 months ago, maybe he wasn't happy with the pay, maybe he left because his roll as CFO for SAP Australia & New Zealand really was too demanding, maybe he was a lazy person and Soon asked him to resign (who can say for sure ?) In his absence SKG have managed to buy back the singapore network, secure long term funding from Cornell, and negotiate a pending deal worth $29 million, so if he smelt a rat (as you are suggesting) it sure is taking it's sweet time to develope. Christopher Bregenhoj is a private investment banker that has ties to the AIM market and John Croft, he has more than one business. He was the logical choice to guide SKG through the listing maze and has contacts with such companies as Cornells. I see nothing unusual with him resigning after the job was done, but perhaps you have a theory you can share ? QUOTE Interesting too that the UK based non-exec director, John Croft, is also on the board of loss making UK based Home Media Networks, recently acquired by SKG. John Croft is one of the four founders of Home media networks and he is also a shareholder in SKG, what is the point of your above statement ? What are you trying to point out ? Why wouldn't Croft be on the board when he was a founder ? Cheers Tex.
  5. Sew Hou Ho resigned as Director and Chief Operating Officer to take on the Singapore based postion, on the 30th of November 2004. He is Managing Director, for South East Asian operations for W Home / SKG. Mr Tim Ebbeck resigned in October 2004, he left due to his full-time commitment as Chief Financial Officer for SAP Australia & New Zealand. Bregenho is a director of "network limited" (listed in the AIM and in Australia under the code NWK) he was employed back in January 2005 for his experience in listing on the UK stock exchange. Now that task has been completed, there is no need to keep paying him. Tex.
  6. QUOTE (klmytech @ Monday 16/05/05 10:27am) QUOTE I know some guys over here that are close to Soon. They haven't been forthcoming with any oil though Just take them out on the town and shout them plenty of booze ! QUOTE it appears the market in the Rest of the World is not in DIY as in the US, where a lot of these US products are focused, but more on the professional installer market. Ok thanks for the site, I'll check with Soon, but given that they are running most of their applications through highrise power-lines I'd say they are already using A-10. They are still targeting the Australian market with DIY products, because in most cases it is the cheapest option for consumers that want limited exposure to wirless technology. "A10" denotes circuitry designed and incorporated into products which provide more reliable powerline carrier communications. The A10 circuitry provides improved transmission and reception. A10 products transmit higher signal levels (6 volts) and have better receive sensitivity (as low as 50 millivolts). Design allows more features than traditional powerline carrier products. A10 products allow the user to configure each unit's "Polite Mode", "All Lights On", "All Lights Off", and "All Units Off" features. A10 products allow for true 2-way communication through "Status Request". All standard A10 products are downwardly compatible to X10 products (standard and extended code). The A10 circuit requires a signal only 35% above line noise. If anyone wants to move into the HomeAutomation market in Australasia, they will have to do business with SKG. It was a very smart move to tie up long term leases on highrise buildings, and to get in on the ground floor with the property developers...........as you have said, with the cash from the Russia deal - the $20 million loan facility & a monopoly developing on luxury appartments we should see other companies eyeing off SKG in the future. It certainly isn't being reflected in the shareprice at present http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/stun.gif Tex.
  7. In reply to: klmytech on Thursday 12/05/05 03:51pm Hi Techo When I have some time I'll have a read about A-10 (cheers). I was surprised that you say these new products are limited, have a read below and perhaps you could share your thoughts.

    In reply to: ty.webb on Thursday 12/05/05 09:52am Ty old mate, you're kidding yourself. BQT does not compare to a Bio company, yes it has done some R&D but they mainly take part A and bolt it to part B and call it world first technology. Or in some cases they buy part A and paint their logo on it, and on-sell it. A Bio company can spend years looking through a microscope and putting it's product through trials, But BQT are not in that mould.......they should have closed many deals by now, but the market is far to competitive on the larger contracts. The people making the real cash out of this industry are the ones that manufacture the chips and hardware, and I think the market has woken up to that. Tex.

    In reply to: charry3 on Wednesday 11/05/05 07:15pm Charry3, I have not lost 1c on BQT. My motivation is not from being a burnt investor, I trade the stock on very short movements from time to time and have done well considering what the chart looks like. I feel obligated to protect the less-informed from the king of rampers, that is all. Tex.

    QUOTE (One Up @ Wednesday 11/05/05 02:23pm) Cheers One-up I probably have covered this stock too much, but I tend to keep replying when I read something I don't agree with. I thought my comment about BQT option holders defending the price was on the money, and perhaps some traders can take advantage of that. Also, I feel obligated to incourage others to look at the entire picture, particularly when a ramper on HC has a knack of getting some of these people to buy into a disater story. I say if you are comfortable holding after doing your research, then good luck to you. My words on this forum will make NO difference if the stock turns out to be a winner. The people that take exception are the ones that are nursing a loss, because they either failed to research or they listened to a ramper that only posts the good news. I know what it feels like to be holding a stock when others are posting negative comments, but if I have done my research and I really know the stock, their comments don't worry me. For mine BQT do have a chance at making it, but IMHO it's a long shot at best and people should invest accordingly http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif Tex.

    In reply to: Barrios on Wednesday 11/05/05 08:33am Don't you think these investors need to see both sides of the penny ? If you have some thing to say about BQT go for it, other wise mind your own bees wax http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/thumbdown.gif Tex.

    In reply to: madmarket on Tuesday 10/05/05 10:29pm QUOTE Um, maybe missing something Yes you are missing something, read my third post down where I said: And we have already discussed BQT buying desfire cards and adding A4's technology for a limited period of time (that is to say marketing rights). It's amazing how many investors hold this stock that don't do any research, or read more than the last two posts http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif The only thing working in it's favour atm is the fact that BQT will try to keep the price above 20c so that the options don't expire worthless at the end of June. (they have already said they will be relying on the cash from the options for further capital). My guess is many of the option holders will help out in that area, so for a period of time if you can buy them at 19c-19.5c you should have no problem selling them at 20c-20.5c. Tex.

    QUOTE (ty.webb @ Monday 09/05/05 07:32pm) QUOTE 2. That BQT acts as a retailer (or wholesaler, or whatever) of generic products that it obtains directly from manufacturers and on-sells to "installers" at tight margin. This is nonsense. Certainly, BQT doesn't manufacture things like sensors. It isn't a technology vendor. Nor does it invent biometric algorithms. Instead, it integrates them from leading players such as A4Vision and LGIris. Ty.webb, can we keep this constructive, we have previously discussed BQT buying and on selling fingerprint security devices for centerlink, so the first part of your statement is nonsense not mine. And we have already discussed BQT buying desfire cards and adding A4's technology for a limited period of time (that is to say marketing rights). So I'm aware of what BQT do and my previous statements are factual. QUOTE BQT's expertise lies in integrating biometrics into a smart card environment - specifically, into a Mifare/DESfire environment. This is a very prospective niche, particularly with respect to the US Govt market I think you are dreaming, BQT have been beating this drum for well over 18 months, and have achieved nothing of great significance. They recently went to the UK to sign a big deal and came home empty handed. There are many companies world wide that operate in smart card technology, and BQT is a small player that will get priced out of the market IMHO. Tex.

    QUOTE (J.Fo @ Monday 09/05/05 03:27pm) So BQT would be the wholesaler but if they are supplying the installer direct they would be the retailer, I believe Chubb etc install the product but they would be chasing the keenest prices for supply and don't care if the company is not around in a years time, because they can still source the product from others suppliers. Manufacturer: Wholesaler: Retailer: Installer / Consumer: QUOTE Where does slashing prices come into it? BQT buy the product from the Manufacturer or in some cases the wholesaler and then add their margin to the cost of the product. To be competitive they have to keep their markup at a certain level......the only edge they have is to slash margins. If this area appears to be lucrative, they will face even heavier competition. QUOTE I would hope that with any contract BQT would protect themselves against roll-out delays. You would be amazed how many companies don't take this into account, they expect the deal to be settled within 12 months. In most cases a 3 year old tender would be considered void and tenders would be re-submitted. QUOTE The resellers will pick the most appropriate gear (performance, cost-effectiveness etc) for each contract and would have done their due diligence to ensure that BQT will be around for the long term It's interesting to see BQT winning a few of these smaller contracts, is it because they have slashed prices ? There is no way anyone can ensure a company will be around in the future, BQT have nil record of profit and very small revenues, the only thing that keeps them alive is cash from the stock market,........keeping that in mind you'd have to say they are living on borrowed time.

    QUOTE (J.Fo @ Monday 09/05/05 02:12pm) It sounds like they are basicly a retailer. They buy the stock and on-sell it to the guys that install it, how profitable is that ? If they won a contract to supply a product 3 years ago is BQT obligated to supply at a fixed price or do they tender the project again ? I guess retail can be lucrative, but I fail to see what their edge is over other competitors other than slashing the price. Maybe next quarters figures will tell a better story. Tex.
  19. In reply to: LookingConfident on Monday 09/05/05 01:17pm Penrith really bombed that one, I hope they play like that again when St George meet them. I was lucky enough to pick up my loss by taking the Roosters -13.5 points over Newcastle, but I was pretty worried when I heard the half time score of 4 to 2 !! I also picked up a gold back from the Dragons game with one of our site crew (he didn't think Gaz and Copper were playing) http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/laughingsmiley.gif Mate you're a shocker with remembering to put your picks in, I'm going to break away from the pack if you keep doing that !

    Guys I suggest you all cut and paste the text below (if you are a holder of the stock) and email it to the CEO. Dear Sir Like yourself I am a stock holder of the company, and as such I legally own a percentage of the company. I note that our company has publicly announced 7 or 8 contracts without stating the value of these deals. As an investor and as such an indirect "supplier of funds" to the company, I feel that it is not fair that you are aware of the values of these contracts but you do not share this information with me ? Please spare me the speech about other competitors being able to access this information, because I'm sure that in most cases the awarder of the contract would unofficially notify them of how much they were beaten by. I have been a faithful holder of this stock and have watched my investment half in value over the last 6 months, so please email me all relevant details so that I can assess if I should continue to expose my diminished captial to any further risk. Yours faithfully, Mr mushroom.
  21. QUOTE (forrestgump @ Friday 06/05/05 03:09pm) Hi Forrest I use ad-aware and have no problems, I notice that when I clean my computer of the spy-ware programes I get them back as soon as I visit hotcopper (and other sites). These are just tracking programmes that record what other web sites you visit, and gives the advertisers an idea of what sites they should place their adds on. I'm not 100% sure that Hotcopper should be allowed to do this but it's probably some where in their terms of use. Spy-ware is harmless providing you don't get the pop ups IMHO. Tex.
  22. 20:44:40 6030 * RUGBY LEAGUE:NRL R9 PENR-CANB HH IncExT PENRITH $200 @ $1.33= $266.00 END OF TRACE I agree with your entire summation, including the lock of the week.

  23. I was wondering why SKG bought Eon3 given that X10 wireless is now considered old technology and will soon replaced by one of the following. (1) Zigbee (2) Zensys (Z-Wave) (3) Smarthome (Insteon) I'll bet you Mr Soon has sent a letter to every one of these companies, requesting distribution rights in Australia. Stay tuned http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif Tex.

  25. In reply to: mcnewf on Wednesday 04/05/05 04:40pm Given the market conditions I think EGL will bounce around at this level for awhile (maybe 8 weeks). I think you can safely trade this stock on a 1c-2c range for a while without fear of it going lower,........if it does you should still be able to get out on your entry level. buy at 11.5c to 12c and sell at 12.5c to 13c. Until they can show that they have turned the corner it wont do much, if it does run it wont be until around September IMHO. Tex.
