ALU gets a mention here - https://www.theage.com.au/business/companie...808-p52f3d.html

Another tech darling Altium, which plans to dominate the rather obscure but lucrative world of design software for printed circuit boards, is worth a billion dollars more than JB Hi-Fi.

That is despite Altium reporting a profit roughly one-seventh that of JB Hi-Fi's $234 million.

The long term price to earnings ratio for S&P 500 shares is around the 15 mark. Which means that investors have generally been willing to pay $15 on the share price of a company for every dollar of profit.

Atlassian, the Nasdaq-listed software group founded by tech billionaires Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar, reported in July that its revenue had finally exceeded $US1 billion for the financial year just ended.

The company is valued at $US33 billion after the recent share price fall. It means investors are paying $33 for every dollar of revenue it generates.


Total short positions as at 5/8/19 = 0.43%

Agree - too expensive for my taste even though analysts/media reckon it's got further to go. But then I recall similar recommendations made re BIG un not that long ago - see this extract I posted else where.

QUOTE
The Big Un Ltd share price is up over 1,500% this year
QUOTE
Considering its cash profit margin was approximately 37% in the first-quarter, this could mean a cash profit of almost $30 million in FY 2018. In light of this, I continue to believe there is still meaningful upside for its shares over the next 12 months and would consider it to be one of the best tech shares on the market at the moment alongside the likes of Altium Limited (ASX: ALU) and Aconex Ltd (ASX: ACX).

Lots of good news baked into the cake.
EPS of 22c and trading at $25.00
Seems mighty expensive.

ALU received a favourable mention in this article recently.
3-D PRINTING STOCKS POISED FOR RECOVERY
By Tony Featherstone
Wed 06 June 2018 08:15 AM

extract
QUOTE
Software star Altium is a better way for long-term investors to play the 3-D printing trend. The developer of electronic circuit board software is not a 3-D printing stock, but its software, used to design electronics for devices produced through 3-D printing, is leveraged to the trend.

Altium is eyeing a tiny slice of a US$2-trillion market for on-demand electronic design and manufacturing, produced via 3-D printing.

It is early days, but Altium could provide free software to retail product designers, such as university students, who design electronic circuit boards for product prototypes that are manufactured on-demand. Then receive a small fee from the product manufacturer – a fascinating business model if it works, given expected growth in 3-D printing and on-demand production for small-scale runs.

Altium is not cheap. The stock trades on a forward price-earnings (PE) multiple of about 50 times on some broker estimates. But the well-run Altium is justifying its valuation through faster-than-expected growth, reflected in its recent result that beat market expectations.

Hi Fred,

Read the latest announcements and outlooks by the company.

The future looks bright even if they do half what they say they
can.

They just released a new version this week, Winter 2009.

Here is a link to a cool video they are promoting a lot at the
moment.

Does anyone have anyone have any recent information or insights on this company? The design concept is interesting, the revenue growth is impressive, and the reach is global. Profits, however, have not yet eventuated.

If anyone has any thoughts on this company, I would love to hear them.

There was an article in the SMH last week also, this
is not announcement material for ALU. NASA does
add some interest, but they are growing their share
of the market at a good rate and have been for years
now, its just another sale at the end of the day, many
large companies use Altium Designer. The good part is,
once a company locks into an EDA product, they do so
for the long term, as it costs much more to change
products then it does to buy the software itself.

Still buying a few from time to time, but I'm mostly
just holding long term.

Cheers.

Thanks for your reply but I was mainly wondering why there was no market announcement just something on their website. Surely a deal like this should be reported on the asx?
