If you’d invested in: DJI Holdings and Gulf Marine Services

Knutsford-based DJI Holdings provides software for sales and distribution of lottery products in China.


Knutsford-based DJI Holdings (Aim: DJI) provides software for sales and distribution of lottery products in China.

It suffered a setback in 2015 when the Chinese authorities suspended online lottery sales, but its strategy of diversifying into mobile payments and a contract with the operator of the Xinhua news app have led to a rebound in the firm's shares, which have risen by more than 160% in the last year.

The shares now stand at just over 30% above the price at which they were first sold in 2014.

Gulf Marine Services (LSE: GMS)

The low oil price has led to tough trading conditions. Earlier this month the firm announced that a charter for one of its vessels that was scheduled to run until the fourth quarter of this year had been terminated early.

The share price has slid by more than 60% in the last year.
