Datrontech shares shoot up over Yule

Before Christmas they were 18 pence -- today they're 29 pence

Troubled UK distributor Datrontech has shot up on the UK stock market on rumours that founder Steve King might return to rescue the firm. The share price stood at just less than 20 pence before Christmas but in a mere 15 days has shot up to nearly 30 pence. At its height, Datrontech's shares stood at £4.30 and it went on a widespread acquisition trail which meant it owned companies as diverse as Portable Add Ons. No-one from Datrontech was available to comment on the rumours that King might return. ®
