    hello folks - since my 1st post re:NMS (tsk tsk) there seems to have been quietly growing support from this forum, and others, for this nice little performer. since april's listing @ 20c (with 1 for 2 free option) the price fell and stayed around the 13-15c range till they began releasing news, which in short sharp grabs has bought it to its present point (37c after high of 45c). as with a lot of small coy's, its always the NEXT release that will see the price skyrocket, with that pending deal within europe (probably with maersk) hopefully in prior to xmas. so to those who jumped aboard, well done. to those who at least looked, keep your eye on them. i would probably expect a little weakness till that next release, so if its in consideration, remain vigilant.

    Re: NEPTUNE MARINE - ANY MORE INTEREST

    the best answer i can offer dwib is it was value compared to the shares. with 6 years to go till maturity (a long time in option world) and a exercise price of 20c, at this stage there is no need to maintain a 20c buffer to the shares. i would have thought 12-15c range would be about the correct margin at the moment. anyone else with thoughts on the price difference between shares and options ??
    and there is plenty more where that came from - ok that IS a ramp.

    Well at least you've ramped in the right spirit of ramping:rolleyes:

    I agree though the options do appear to be cheap, especially if we believe the company is going places.Six years a long time 'till maturity and percentage wise if you firmly believe in the company then although obviously more risky the upside in the options is considerable.

    One note of caution, it is a new company and it is possible that things could go horribly wrong.

    I personally think they have a superb technology and companies do appear to be using it, so looks very good in my opinion.Of course I could be wrong :eek:

    Re: NEPTUNE MARINE - ANY MORE INTEREST

    Baglimit, everybody knows my feelings on the company as I have bought some options so of course I think the company has potential, but I can't & wont just do a bare faced ramp.Potential investors need to do their own research & know the pitfalls as well as the pros.

    It certainly isn't a sure thing, as with any stock they all have potential both ways.As far as news goes, well, it is all good at the moment and long may it continue it certainly has performed extremely well in the few weeks since I bought. :xyxthumbs:

    Re: NEPTUNE MARINE - ANY MORE INTEREST

    porper - so many well chosen words. it is normal for my good self to start considering where to be putting profits from little successes like this one. however my confidence in this little performer becoming something more than a little success is so high that i just cant see the point at the moment. i havent got anything else on my radar that i expect to provide a better return.
    so i guess i just leave it there and ponder. i did find it a little odd your comment that 'all the news has been good' - thats the one problem, theres been little news lately - everyday is 'the day', and everyday turns out no to be the day. i guess patience is also a virtue, not just a card game. enjoy.

    Re: NEPTUNE MARINE - ANY MORE INTEREST

    Well Baglimit, all I meant was that all the news since I bought in has been good, admitedly not much of it.

    Lets face it it doesn't seem to matter anyway, the share price is rocketing on it's own at the moment, surged again today to another all time high. Imagine what it could do if we do get some really good news :dance:

    Hi guy's,

    Why do you think it will continue rising?

    Or are you just speculating/ramping/wishing?

    Re: NEPTUNE MARINE - ANY MORE INTEREST

    Barbarian, firstly I do not ramp, if you look back through all my posts I always try and give a balanced view.

    I have no information as to why I think the price will go up, only past performance, a good technology and a hope we get some big deals coming through.It is not a stock in my view to put money into that you cannot afford to lose.That of course means there is more upside.You can't have your cake and eat it..............risk V reward and all that.

    If the contracts come in she will go up, if not she will go down.In my opinion it is as simple as that.A bit like MUL, but hopefully will keep going and not retrace too much.

    I hope that explains things for you. :D

    Re: NEPTUNE MARINE - ANY MORE INTEREST

    Comments from the Ferret with respect to the recent rise in NMS and NMSO price. So hopefully we get some news this or next week.

    ETrade 1/12/04

    NEPTUNE MARINE SERVICES (NMS) has the announcement caper well under control.

    In each of the past two months it's made a generally little-noticed, but a share-price-transforming announcement nevertheless, in the first week.

    And, guess what ... it's the first week of December.

    Listed in April the 20c shares were a losing proposition for original investors when they traded at 15c and 4c for the 1-for-2 free options on opening day.

    The stock continued to struggle until October 7 when it announced that its technology (for underwater welding at less cost than more conventional wet welding) was to be assessed during October by major overseas oil and gas and shipping line interests.

    The shares shot up from 15.5c to 20c.

    The next big boost came on November 8 when the company announced it had secured its first military repair contract for the use of its "Dry Underwater Welding Technology".

    "Although relatively small in scale, and only two days in duration, the project represents a major milestone in the application of the Neptune Technology into the significant military market," the company said.

    The shares rose from 26c to 31c.

    The price has continued to firm, closing at a record 45c today, with the options touching 28c.

    Neptune also said that the "securing of the contract is considered an important breakthrough for the company in the global defence market, which has significant potential for the application of Neptune's technology, and comes significantly ahead of time in the company's commercialisation timetable".

    Re: NEPTUNE MARINE - ANY MORE INTEREST

    There must be something in the pipeline here, NMSO surging again today (up 26 % at the moment) on no news, or at least no news that we know of.The price has now more than doubled in a few weeks.

    I am not complaining but whatever is about to be announced better be good because the market has obviously built it into the price, so to avoid tumbling back down it needs to be exceptional !! :walker:

    Interesting stock this one. Why has it gone up so, why is it so?

    Hard not to notice that since your initial message baglimit, on 'tsk tsk - very disappointing' 23/10, this stock has gone from about 25c to todays close at 55c. Has moved in reasonably small vols. And seems to have jumped with no great reason that I can see, maybe I'm missing something.

    Maybe I'm a cynic but could have been a great ramp by baglimit and porper.
    :eek:

    Oh no, Microscope you have found us out, Baglimit & Porper are the same person.I have ramped the stock up over 100 % all by myself.I must be a very powerful person conning all these people into buying.

    Damn now everybody knows the truth the price will plummet on Monday for sure, oh well all I can say is well done Microscope for being so perceptive.With people like you around how will I ever make any money :screwy:

    oh my dear porper have i got issue with you......
    HOW DARE YOU MENTION NMS AND mul IN THE SAME POST.
    WHAT A DISGUSTING COMPARISON.
    SIMPLE RULE - HOW MANY TIMES HAS NMS GONE TO THE MARKET ASKING FOR MORE MONEY (A COMMON TALE AT mul) - NOT ONCE.
    DONT EVER DREAM OF MENTIONING THEM IN THE SAME SENTENCE AGAIN.
    OH MY DEAR, I HAVE DONE IT TOO - OH WELL TIME TO TOP MYSELF - NAH, I WONT - HAVING TOO MUCH FUN RIDING THE NMS WAVE....YEEHAH.

    Re: NEPTUNE MARINE - ANY MORE INTEREST

    Well Baglimit my old mate, as I hold MUL, too bad I'm afraid, they will get a lot of posts from me in the near future.

    Anyway you never know, lets see what percentage gain they both have by let's say mid next year, you might be surprised, if Mul can keep their promise on profits they will give NMS a run for their money, if they are a bunch of sharks as many think, could go bust of course.I must say if it wasn't for NMS and NOG my portfolio would look pretty sick, but that's the territory with penny shares, if you can manage to pick a couple of big winners you can afford some losers because we all have some despite what people would have you believe :xyxthumbs

    "if Mul can keep their promise on profits"
    ye have a little too much faith in 'that stock' me thinks.
    let me know when they give out their 1st divi - i aint holding my breathe.
    anyway enough about them.
    twas a shame they couldnt hold 41c on the 'o's. they seem undervalued now....by about 5-8c i'd say
