Oxford Nanopore – this just looks misleading: a £2bn share to short

I have always thought that Oxford Nanopore (ONT) was massively overhyped and that its CEO Gordon Sanghera was a bit of a bullshitter, fawned upon on by the deadwood press. The company IPO’d just under two years ago at 425p – its shares now languish at 231p. Today we have half calendar year numbers from a company still capitalised at almost £2 billion and the smell of Sanghera bullshit is strong.

Oxford Nanopore – is this low growth cash guzzler really worth £1.45 billion? Dismal results posted!

Its association with Neil Woodford and its constant hyping, no rather sordid slavering adulation, by the deadwood press always lead me to treat Oxford Nanopore (ONT) with real suspicion. Institutional investors bundled in at 425p in its September 2021 IPO. Today the shares are just 176p but piss poor results suggest even that valuation is mighty generous.

Oxford Nanopore – forget the broker hype – look what the insiders are doing

The IPO of Oxford Nanopore (ONT) was Christmas came early for the brokers involved.. Raising £1.87 billion of either new cash or from flogging shares for exiting shareholders at 425p will have generated almost £90 million in commission which, even in these inflationary times, will buy an awful lot of coke and upper class hookers. To support such an exercise there were numerous enthusiastic buy notes.  So with the shares now at 577p should we believe the bullshit buy notes?
