Provexis China is a massive market for the heart health product Fruitflow and only today on the internet the scientists latest research has recognised that we all have what they now call ugly cholesterol which is the main cause of heart attacks and strokes and high blood pressure. And Fruitflow, on sale in Holland and Barrett and now soon to on sale in China maintains a healthy blood flow, and we all need to check out this new health concern.
Provexis A decent remuneration for you nonetheless BB! Why would you work all year when you are on that sort of wedge? Yes i think you are correct in saying that IF probably was behind getting By-Health to agree to funding the MOU.I am very glad he did!
Provexis redprince: 7% a year would be fantastic imo.One has to gamble a little to make some money earlier in life but i take your point. I still feel this will come right at some point but realistically we are talking relative to todays mkt price and not that of 10 years ago. Yes fwiw i work in contracts as an accountant (for a lot less than your daily rate i might add). I’d 7% a year is a decent return, but not wonderful. I forget the exact figures, but I think the average annualised return on the FTSE100 over the last 25 years or so is something like 6%. That’s not my normal day rate btw ! A normal rate would typically be between 400 and 500 quid plus expenses. Knock off something for our overheads, and, if I was working full-time @ say 220 days a year ( I’m not, I’m a lazy bugger ), then it wouldn’t be much different to what Ford’s on. I reckon my job’s a damned sight easier than his ! To be fair to him, he’s presumably the one that’s got By-Health to agree to pretty much totally fund the research in the MoU, which has changed from a few months ago, and limits the amount needed for the next cash call.

Provexis Anyone got the list of ingredients for this fermented lactose drink then ?
Provexis Fair points BB.Life is a learning curve and who has not learned something from PXS!I have learned to curb my natural inclination to invest heavily in high risk situations especially without due regard for management background and track record. 7% a year would be fantastic imo.One has to gamble a little to make some money earlier in life but i take your point. I still feel this will come right at some point but realistically we are talking relative to todays mkt price and not that of 10 years ago. Yes fwiw i work in contracts as an accountant (for a lot less than your daily rate i might add). Regards redprince
Provexis Looks good Gixer , they are definitely going to put the full dose off FF in this product are they ? I haven’t seen the ingredient list.
Provexis nest, I don’t think we need to be worried about that. Here is just a snippet from By-Healths recent Semi-Annual Report. During the reporting period, the company focused on the following tasks: (1) Launching the main brand promotion strategy with protein powder as the image product During the reporting period, the company further increased brand building and market cultivation, with protein powder as the main brand image product and brand contact point.

Company passed Strategically invest in protein powder, assume the role of market leader, continue to maintain and stabilize the growth of the main brand, and drive the growth of all categories. In the second half of the year, the company will continue to increase the advertising of the “Thomson Bianjian” brand.

At the same time, further expand new consumption channels through gift packaging and establish New spending habits. Through the above measures, the company will further make large-scale cakes and realize the expansion of the protein powder market.

In the first half of the year, the company held several key promotion activities online, such as “Queen’s Day”, “Happy Day”, “618”, etc., combining the promotion of spokespersons with platform activities and marketing support through IP blessing. During the reporting period, the rectification actions jointly carried out by relevant state regulatory authorities have led to increased pressures and challenges for market stakeholders. In the short term, the overall growth rate of the “health” market and the dietary supplement industry slowed down.

Provexis We have to hope that the Chinese will be willing to spend lots on advertising , I am yet to be convinced.
Provexis redprince: Perhaps BB but i have always believed in if you understand the rationale behind the business model and believe in it then stick with it. You’re an accountant mate ( or qualified anyway, if it’s not your day job ? ), so should understand figures better than me. What follows isn’t having a dig at anyone, but is worth considering … For arguments sake, say Provexis got bought out in a couple of years at 2.5p. Create a spreadsheet and stick all your buys in over the years, and work out the annualised return (or loss ) of each of those purchases based on a sp of 2.5p Then, for comparison, look at the annualised return you’d have got by putting the same amounts, on the same days, into something just tracking the All-Share and reinvesting the dividends. Then consider the risk / reward ratio between the two. Lots of people on bulletin boards say stuff like “I’ve doubled my money here”, which sounds great, but if it takes ten years to double your money, then that’s only 7% a year, which isn’t bad, but doesn’t sound anywhere near as good as doubling your cash. Even trebling your money over that timescale is “only” about 12% Anyway. the business model here is very simple, but making money on our investments here over the years has proved to be anything but ! BB
Provexis How many got it right and bought at 0.5p and sold at 17p ? then stayed away.
Provexis Perhaps BB but i have always believed in if you understand the rationale behind the business model and believe in it then stick with it. What i did not pay heed to here was the track record of the management in particular Buck and Moon. Moon was frankly a charlatan and abused the good will of the shareholders to pursue his own agenda. This would be nowhere near as bad (in terms of dilution) had Moon been held to account by the bod and stopped from the totally selfish and reckless purchase of SIS. Trading - i have never had the mindset for it but yes many will have done well out of that.Perhaps i need to consider that in the future. However it is how the race finishes that counts!! The race is still very much on.
Provexis redprince: PXS is a great example of WB’s old saying " if you are not willing to hold a share for 10 years then you should not be willing to hold it for 10 minutes" I’m not sure you can transfer Buffett’s investment method to small caps in general and AIM in particular. If I’ve learnt nothing else over the last ten years, the one thing I have learnt is that, unless you’re willing and able to trade the peaks and troughs, you’ll probably be best off leaving companies like this alone until there’s a real chance of them becoming cash flow positive within a year or two. You’ll miss the odd one that flys, but I’d wager most people would be financially better off if they ignored jam tomorrow companies until there’s some tangible sign of the jam setting BB
Provexis We could really do with some clarity on what is and has been applied for. In one rns we are told 2 blue cap submissions will be applied for in 2019 and in another it says blue cap and other regulatory submissions.
