Forbidden focuses on selling

Forbidden Technologies (AIM: FBT) has been around a long time but has failed to generate much in the way of revenues, despite having a product that sounds like it should be a winner. There were board changes last year and new CEO Aziz Musa is shifting resources towards selling and away from technological development. This has to be the right strategy and we should find out if it’s working as this year unfolds.

Wash those nits right out of your hair!

Tyratech (AIM: TYRU) offers a compelling product proposition. Controlling bugs and parasites using conventional pesticides is both harmful to the environment and ineffective. Over the years insects have built up resistance to many of the chemicals used to kill them. So Tyratech’s natural products are not only safer but also a lot more effective than the competition. 

Angling for a cancer breakthrough

Results from medical device manufacturer Angle (AIM: AGL) showed its innovative Parsortix system to be nicely on track. The first commercial sales for research use have just been made and three leading cancer centres are moving forward with trials that will support its clinical use in the diagnosis of ovarian cancer.

Plexus hammered by oil industry shutdown

In the middle of 2014 Plexus (AIM: POS) was riding high with a share price of 320p giving the company a market value of £270 million. Today’s profit warning has seen the shares slump 40 per cent to just 73p, valuing Plexus at a mere £65 million. As an engineering company selling mainly into the oil industry, we shouldn’t be too surprised by downgrades. But the severity is startling.

Fusionex shares plunge on hidden profit warning

Malaysian big data software specialist Fusionex (AIM: FXI) has released an upbeat results statement for the year to September. As well as beating historic forecasts, the new financial year is said to have started “on a very strong note… the outlook for 2016 and beyond is very positive”. Sounds fantastic! Yet by this afternoon the shares had collapsed by 35 per cent.
