One thing I noticed on Digital Look was that one of the Directors has recently bought 3 million pounds worth of shares! Now that is what I call a vote of confidence!
I also took a read through their latest results just out today makes good reading, however the market has taken it as a chance to take some profits so looks like a buying opportunity for me…
The Board is pleased to announce that the Company has performed slightly ahead of management expectations for both revenue and adjusted profit before tax in the period. As at 31 January 2014, the value of contracts secured but not yet live stood at a record £23.8 million from £18.2 million as at 30 September 2013 (31 July 2013: £16.6 million).
So this is how I would typically research a company having a look at: their figures, their website, the broker forecasts for what they are worth etc.
Time spend researching a Share is very worthwhile - dont be tempted to take shortcuts or copy other people.
