On June 2nd 2017, PLUS updated on trading update, and said the the positive trends outlined in the first quarter trading update issued on 26th April 2017 had continued. A further half-year trading update on July 3rd said that the business has continued to trade very strongly, and as a result, the Company now anticipates that revenues and profits for the year ending 31 December 2017 will be significantly ahead of current market expectations. CEO Asaf Elimelech said; “We have had a very successful half year, significantly ahead of our expectations. This puts us in a strong position for the remainder of the year. We are confident that our flexible business model will enable us to adapt to the upcoming regulatory changes and gives us a competitive advantage that will enable us to deliver another excellent performance this year.”

PLUS started appearing across key VectorVest metrics in December 2016, when the shares traded around 320p. While the well-documented regulatory challenges with financial authorities around the globe still sees a low RS (Relative Safety) rating of just 0.83 – poor on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00, the rate of recovery since the beginning of the year has seen the stock hit our current Value target of 578p per share for PLUS, indicating that at 596p it is currently fully. This only tells part of the story though: the RT (Relative Timing) indicator,which is a fast, smart, accurate indicator of a stock’s price trend, shows a rating of 1.55 for PLUS, which is excellent on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00.


The chart of Plus 500 is shown above where the share is on a VectorVest BUY recommendation. Over the past month the share has charted a triangular consolidation pattern and has gapped upwards out of the consolidation over the past two trading days. This gap (breakaway gap) usually precedes a strong move. Those holding the share should sit tight and consider adding to a winning position.

Summary: Since our April 26th note, PLUS has made dramatic progress from 468p and has hit our valuation of 578p. We repeat the view that PLUS has emerged from its not inconsiderable regulatory challenges in fine shape, and with an extremely bullish forecast for full year numbers. The valuation gap has now closed, but with the trend very much a friend in this case, the RT indicator shows that further progress from this point is likely. Aggressive traders who have experience in managing risk proactively should carefully consider this opportunity when they observe that the general market is positive.
