  1. In reply to: cloudwalker on Wednesday 04/05/05 05:02pm http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/laughingsmiley.gif sorry that was yesterdays data. Best we don't get too smug, I'm sure there'll be some dips along the way. Tex.
  2. In reply to: cloudwalker on Tuesday 03/05/05 06:47pm Another nice bounce today in a very poor market, looking at the thin trading since consolidation you can see two of the largest dumping months were November and December followed by another wave of selling in March (most likely frustrated holders that bought in November and December). What this shows is the buyers in March and April are reluctant to sell back into the rally, which hopefully is the signal of a bottom. The first resistance point on the way back up will be $2.00 (this is where the balance of holders from December and January will sell at around break even. SKG will suffer very heavy resistance at around $2.80, because there were a lot of pre-consolidation holders that bought in at around 7c (7c x 42 =$2.80). If SKG every pushes through $2.80 and holds its ground on good volume it will have to be on big news. May-2005 closing price 105.00 volume 56,862 Apr-2005 closing price 74.00 volume 154,581 Mar-2005 closing price 99.00 volume 408,625 Feb-2005 closing price 133.00 volume 204,195 Jan-2005 closing price 199.00 volume 103,209 Dec-2004 closing price 202.00 volume 533,317 Nov-2004 closing price 276.00 volume 470,764
  3. In reply to: cloudwalker on Tuesday 03/05/05 06:47pm http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/laughingsmiley.gif well at least two of us are watching http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/laughingsmiley.gif My average is 92c, I think $2 is achievable.
  4. Guys, I don't agree with your comments, but each to his own. Certainly this would be a dissapointing stock for anyone that has held long term. I understand a certain amount of bitterness is justified from previous holders. I see SKG as a trading stock, that has massive potential if they can get the mix right. Liquidity will come back to the stock when they start to get a roll on. My feeling is we will see plenty of positive developements over the course of the year, and I'm prepaired to lay a small wager on that. Home automation is an area of potential growth, and SKG are well placed in the Australian market. Time will tell http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif Tex.
  5. Well that's 2 in a row LC, hopefully the streak will continue for a few more weeks. I only picked 2 from 7 overall but had my money on the ones that counted http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif I see the Dragons are up against the Rabbits this round, so if the Bunnies win I'll run the $40 over to you plus shout you a few beers !

  6. In reply to: chris on Saturday 30/04/05 08:35am Very insightful post Chris. Maybe you should apply for a job with UBS http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif I think AVV attempted to diversify their revenue stream when they bought Staging connections, but it hasn't paid off. From memory, UBS were buying the stock aggresively at around the $1.20 mark and were involved with the purchase of Staging Connections by getting their clients in at around the $1.40 mark. They were placing a value of $2.80 on the stock at the time, and this attracted many instos. However, most of them started to bail out when it became apparent that AVV's margins were being eroded and their forecasts were on the optomistic side. I think I will buy back into AVV, but I'll wait until there is a confirmed change in direction. Are you back into SKG yet ? Regard's, tex.
  7. Receipts from customers Quarter ended 31/03/03 $225k Receipts from customers Quarter ended 30/6/03 $322 k Receipts from customers Quarter ended 30/9/03 $733 k Receipts from customers Quarter ended 31/12/03 $881 k Totals $2.161 million Receipts from customers Quarter ended 31/3/04 $988 k Receipts from customers Quarter ended 30/6/04 $332 k Receipts from customers Quarter ended 30/9/04 $621 k Receipts from customers Quarter ended 31/12/04 $1480 k totals $3.421 million Receipts from customers Quarter ended 31/3/05 $539 k Receipts from customers Quarter ended 30/6/05 $30 million (according to note 4) Well, receipts are lower than I expected which is dissapointing to say the least. In their press release dated 21-3-05 SKG said they would not recognise the AU $29 million Russian deal until the 2005-2006 results (meaning the 1st quater ending on 30-9-05); But in their third quarter report released today they say "the company expects next quarters customer cash receipts to be approximately $30 million resulting in positive cash flows". This should result in a 4th quarter profit of approx $5 million and a full year profit of approx $2.4 million. The market is classing the Russian deal as a "one off fluke" and doubts that SKG can pull off any more deals similar in the forseeable future. Customer receipts seem to be stagnating, which is unusual given their continued expansion into the highrise market. This should be the last negative result because $1.4 million was written off on the AIM listing, if you ignore this amount the real loss for the quarter was $233k which means SKG are coming ever closer to the elusive "break even" point. Tex.

  10. In reply to: datum on Tuesday 26/04/05 11:23pm Revenues have only just started to improve because of the steady increase in wired apartments, this will snowball over the next 12 months. Cornell would have to be happy about the Russian deal, once this money flows into SKG's account I'm betting you'll see a dramatic change in the liquidity of shares changing hands. SKG is trading near it's all time lows, the market can only ignore the value for so long. Any more significant deals or noticable revenue growth and the price will rise accordingly. At the moment stock screening software is not picking this one up, but one thing is for certain, $8.7 million market cap is a joke http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/laughingsmiley.gif The Texan is on the right horse !
  11. This article is worth the read, and it also points out why SKG have recently bought showShifter. Big money bet on digital home By Wire Services Mention "home networking" to most people and few would imagine that routers, access points and wireless connections will over the next few years become an indispensable part of home entertainment systems. Microsoft and dozens of other big-name technology companies, from France's Alcatel to Japan's Sony to US chipmakers like Intel, are betting that big money can be made in the years ahead by changing forever the way that news, entertainment and information reach consumers: digitally, and over the Internet. "Just as the introduction of the PC in the early 1980s and mobile phones in the early 1990s changed our lives, I believe that home networking will drive the next major wave of digital media and communication for consumers," said analyst Richard Webb at market research group Infonetics. Microsoft's Moshe Lichtman simple asks an audience if they want to be able to watch any TV show or movie, at any time convenient for them, on any display screen -- including their mobile phone. "It's all about giving consumers the freedom to access the information and entertainment they care about in the way that suits them best," said Lichtman, who leads Microsoft's TV software business. After almost a decade of talk, it could all start to become very real as early as next year. "I expect meaningful sales (of home networking products) already in 2005," said Jan Hommen, chief financial officer of struggling consumer electronics maker Philips. Electronics companies have been talking for years about the "smart home", but futuristic products like the "Internet fridge" have remained expensive, fringe items. What is different now is that companies are investing real money in improving entertainment and communications services that consumers are willing to pay for, centred on video and music, while throwing in Internet telephony at very low cost. "The digitisation of the home can be the third major wave of digital electronics," said Goldman Sachs analyst Matthew Gehl. "We expect this trend to be slower to build and the growth slope may be less steep than the prior waves, (but) we believe it will be longer lasting than the prior trends, with opportunities provided for much of the industry." Research group Ovum forecasts that the number of networked homes worldwide will mushroom to 121 million by 2008. For starters, consumers will need digital-ready TVs, and will probably prefer flat-screen models. Sony's Keiji Kimura, in charge of computers and mobile products at the world's biggest consumer electronics company, expects that the space-saving dimensions of flat-screen TVs, along with steadily declining prices, will encourage consumers to put sets in almost every room of their homes. A home network also requires a broadband router to hook up to the Internet and a wireless access point to connect various TV screens and other gadgets without a jumble of cables. There should also be a box that can deliver and record digital TV programmes and movies, and a digital vault to store films, games, music and pictures. Because of the rapid pace of advances in digital technology, the upgrade cycle for these devices will also be faster than for current home electronics, which are replaced only once every five to 10 years, compared with three years for PCs. Computer makers and consumer electronics producers are all jockeying for position to take centre-stage in the living room. Microsoft's latest push for Windows Media software, which turns PCs into a home media hub, underlines how big the stakes are. "There's a real battle going on. Intel and Microsoft are trying hard to come in," said Park Hyun, chief of home networks at South Korea's LG Electronics. A DVD recorder or a thin LCD television contains four to five times more chips than conventional DVD players and picture-tube TVs. This is good news for chip and component makers like South Korea's Samsung Electronics, as well as Texas Instruments, ATI Technologies, STMicroelectronics and Infineon. Uche Orji, analyst at JP Morgan, believes these companies' share prices do not yet reflect the opportunities in networked home electronics, since investors tend to focus on today's oil prices rather than tomorrow's trends. The digital home is expected to be a big driver of the next upswing of the cyclical semiconductor industry, which is currently poised for a downtrend. "There is a big future," Orji said. Televisions will set the pace -- with some 30 cents of every dollar spent on consumer electronics already going to TVs. Thin displays and a move to high definition and digital broadcasting will provide powerful reasons to upgrade. "Not since the advent of colour TV have there been so many new compelling and competing technologies to generate buying and to shorten the replacement cycles for TVs," Goldman Sachs analysts said in a recent note. The number of TVs sold annually around the world, at 165 million, is on a par with the number of PCs. But the average price per TV set is going up, while PCs are getting cheaper. The average analogue TV retails for $271 while a digital set goes for $1,370, but market research group InStat predicts that, with components such as LCD displays getting cheaper, the average price for a digital TV will drop to $690 by 2008. That will still, however, be well above the typical analogue TV. More than 90 million digital TV sets are expected to be sold in 2008, it added.

  15. $850k loan from Cormell to be repaid in shares in $25k allotments issued at a 6% discount starting in May through to August. 12% interest will apply on the oustanding balance until the full number of shares are issued. These shares will be listed on the AIM. SKG has also purchased "Home media networks" in the UK for $500 pounds by issuing 859k shares at 58.2 pence and a further 67k of shares will be issued to settle an outstanding loan to Home media networks. These shares will be listed on the AIM. http://www.homemedianetworks.com/company.htm These guys have a product called "showShifter" which will be pushed by SKG's distribution network along with SKG's other products range. This has obviously been in the pipeline for awhile because John Croft is affilated with both SKG and Home media networks.

    QUOTE I love to play red at the casino. I always call heads in two-up http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif It is strange how the directors keep buying but the punters keep selling ? logic dictates that if the director is in the know and his mates are in the know and half of the forum posters are in the know the price should go up. Can someone explain this phenomenon to me ? I haven't seen it in 6 years of trading. Tex.

    QUOTE Yes the directors are aware that they are in negotiations with a number of parties and until they are signed, sealed and delivered, are permitted to freely trade their own shares. Indeed they are, but if one of the posters here is aware that a major deal would be done in 21 trading days, does that not mean the director would be also aware ? Many companies restrict their officers from buying their shares for that exact reason. Tex.
