    Not my usual style I normaly like high ROE stocks with a history of profits but I speculated with a small holding in PHK recently.

    Sales are growing and I think it is close to being cashflow positive (6-12 months) and maybe even a maiden profit.

    IMO PHK does have a competitive advantage in the treatment of phosphorus in water supplies.

    Half year results out yesterday, on the face of it not very pretty reading:

    Revenue down 35%

    Loss increased 24%

    Diluted EPS (0.55) cents PCP (0.47)

    On the positive side the company provided some excuses

    "Sales for the period were affected by several projects being delayed in Europe and North America by 6 and up to 12 months"

    On the positive side the outlook looks fairly good for PHK.

    There are some nice numbers / forecasts in None 8: Going Concern that point to some nice earnings if targets are met.

    Previous forecasts by management have proved to be not completely ficticious.

    I have no idea, I will have to look into it. I have never looked at Equitytrust

    Great news about cashflow today however.

    Thanks, I like this story of PHK. Think I'll wait for a pattern to form. Chart a little bit formless right now. Needs some volume desperately.

    Interesting this company. The way the product works.

    The work currently underway in Canada sounds intresting. (Just reading the last ASX Announcement.) May be this is why the SP has risen over the last few days.

    I will keep it in the watch list for now.

    I will look forward to seeing the cash flow for the current quarter for PHK.

    Work in Europe and Asia will also be of interest.

    I'd give this one the thumbs up :xyxthumbs as price continued higher.

    The company is slowly building it's business of cleaning lakes and has recently won a contract in Poland.
    I have been buying a little recently as the weekly chart shows a series of higher lows.
    Unfortunately the daily traded volume is too low for me to include it in the momentum thread.

    Since my last post, price has gone higher, tested the 0.25 level and is now sneaking higher on above average volume.

    Well spotted Peter. PHK has carried on moving north since your post on Monday and looks set to break through 40c. Volume remains above average and daily ranges have been increasing. Some real interest in PHK at the moment.

    It went up to 41 cents before closing at around 38.5 cents today. I missed it because I was looking at another water company. This is a typical habit of mine. Missing the boat!

    I actually did not know what I was doing with this 3 month chart. I actually do not know what I am suppose to be looking at. I just think Phoslock has a very big future because there are so many lakes around the world that need cleaning up. Think of all of the phosphate fertilisers over flowing into the rivers and lakes. The heat wave in the Northern Hemisphere causing algae to grow in rivers and lakes.

    I still think that I missed the boat. I am so upset that I did not hear of Phoslock 3 or 4 months ago.

    Thanks

    once the product flocs and sinks to the bottom, what happens to it?

    my experience with al based flocs is they rise to be skimmed...cos they are nasty.

    Hi @HelloU

    http://www.phoslock.com.au/site/what-we-do/products

    It combines with Phosphate to form a type of 'sand'. I don't believe it will rise to the top.
    It has taken them so many years of trials, etc. Now they are winning contracts to clean up lakes.

    This Capital Raise was well over subscribed.

    I missed out on 36cents (and lower). I wished I actually paid attention to @peter2 and @greggles charts rather than just think "another chart". There was a real story here and I never read it until it was too late.

    Unfortunately, due to lack of funds, I only brought a "speccy" amount of shares when I believe that I should invest more. If I can find funds, maybe I should 'average up'.

    Here are some of their recent successes:
