Avacta: more “news” that proves nothing, valuation is still crackers

By Tom Winnifrith, the Sheriff of AIM | Thursday 21 March 2024

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Let’s be clear, after the recent £31 million fund raise, with no imminent cash crisis, Avacta (AVCT) is no longer a compelling short at 53p. We perma bears have won, drunk our ouzo and moved on, to the sound of gnashing teeth among impoverished bulletin board poltroons. But when it next starts to run out of cash its shares will collapse. And its valuation, £187 million plus another £40 million when all death spirals are converted looks very chunky indeed for a company whose lead product is not yet in phase 2 trials. Today there is more “news” but it means nothing at all and strikes me as a desperate attempt to keep the shares above the 50p placing price.
