    Default Solution Dynamics - SDL

    First profit in 7 years... is that enough to earn them a thread?

    Oh well, just a small cheer for them and hope they're now into the seven years of plenty!

    Perhaps. Who are Solution Dynamics and what do they do?

    To be free or not to be free. That is the cash-flow question....

    Hi Snoopy,

    I might write them up sometime. It's been a very long time since I held any - I can't even remember whether I made or lost money on them!

    I do like the name though... if this was on the ASX, it would have "pump and dump" written all over it... well at least it would if they needed more capital and a small broking house to raise it for them.

    They have been around for a while though. A bit like FIN. I figure that no one else is ever going to cover these minnows, so we, the great unpaid, should take up the challenge! Soon...

    I note The Aspiring Fund have brought 1,150,000 shares, ie 8.18% of SDL.The Aspiring Fund is run by Stephen Montgomery,ex ACC,and I think they employ Roger Armstrong,a brilliant analyst.
    Have had a quick read of SDL's annual report and am left feeling they are better on my watch list,rather than my buy list.

    Had to look deep into the archives to dig this one up:

    SDL looking to have a nice uptick in profits -70% on last year. Interesting to see where this one leads. Still think they need to work on their marketing and overall comms about what they do, it is very 70s atm.

    I compared them to FIN in a 2011 post on this thread... perhaps they're now trying to replicate Finzsoft's more recent performance!

    (I doubt they'll manage it, but they are probably okay for a short term punt at the 50-80cps range - last trade 70cps).

    Interesting commentary in the interim report just released. Lots of potential both negative and maybe positive.

    Read the words, it makes it more interesting. Or look at the SP graph has not been all that bad an investment over last four years.

    Implosion or explosion?
    "underlying earnings will nevertheless be materially lower than previous guidance, although the
    Company is not yet in a position to quantify the extent."

    There does look like a bit of accumulation since March

    Crikey an old fashioned media/printing company (OK, with some digital tech pretensions,) and forecasting a FY19 decline in NPAT of 25 to 35%. What could possibly go wrong?

    Good luck holders...... still lots of downside risk IMHO. I'm happy to watch from the sidelines.
