Buy Sound Oil (SOU): Best Case Scenario Targets 16p

For the past couple of days I have been sitting back contentedly watching the share price of Sound Oil start to bubble up, happy in the knowledge that its charting praises had been sung here on ShareProphets already, and ready to take a bow over the next week as the stock soared. Unfortunately, this will be the first technical analysis of this much followed E&P minnow.

Buy Globo (GBO): Up, Up And Away

As most of us are probably aware, apart from holidaying in Ibiza, there are few things more exciting in life than the world of international mobile solutions, the sphere in which Globo occupies. Last month the software as a service provider reported that annual revenues were up over a quarter on sales of its smart phone technology. But the real interest at the moment may come from the latest price action where it would appear that a break out is imminent.

Range Resources (RRL): Is It A Buy Under 3p?

On the face of it we can say that the loss of the initial 3p support level of 2013 for Range Resources in the second half of May suggests that not only is a new bear phase about to begin for this highly followed stock, but that the target is now as low as 2p. But is this too negative view on a company where most traders are long and still expecting great things?

Idox plc - review of profit warning as shares down sharply

Shares in Idox plc (IDOX), an AIM-listed supplier of software and services to the UK public sector and global engineering information markets, presently trade more than 18% lower today, at a current 37.5p, as the company has reported a “disappointing” first half year (to 30th April) performance “impacted by delays in new Engineering Information Management licence sales in particular”.

Sell IDOX (IDOX): Risk Still Towards 30p

Today's plunge for IDOX shares certainly seems to have ruffled the feathers of bulls of this stock if that is not mixing metaphors painfully. However, as can be seen from the daily chart since start of the year the decline has not been an overnight affair, and despite the losses we have already seen, there could be more to come once the dust has settled on the latest gap to the downside.

Quindell Portfolio (QPP): Main Uptrend Line Identified

Nevertheless, albeit in tortoise like fashion, the main uptrend line for Quindell Portfolio chart has been identified today.

Buy Red Emperor Resources (RMP): Now Fully Clothed, Technically

It can be said quite fairly that shares of Red Emperor could have been wrongly identified as a potential bargain-hunting opportunity at any time over the past nine months. Clearly the key here is to suggest the extended bear run is over no more than a few days before this actually happens.

On the AIM Cesspit Kennedy Ventures – the Great Bison Energy joke: when’s the cash call?

Once upon a time there was a company called Managed Support Services PLC which was listed on the AIM Cesspit. It went tits up. Well almost. Its operations were sold but the shell remained intact with a few liabilities and a tiny but of cash. It became Kennedy Ventures (KENV), an investing company, and it shows the idiocy and unsustainability of this whole AIM game.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why Paul Scott's fucktard follower will always lose & should you sell all your oil shares?

Okay this really is the last one until September. But I have packed and am ready to travel and am bored, so here goes one more time. First up I discuss those who always blame others for their lack of profits, citing some twitter chum of the great Paul Scott. Then as Brent plunges through $45 I discuss why it is falling, where it will go next and if you should sell all your shares. The answer is a very selective no.

Highlands Natural Resources: Results out - fun over - bubble bursting - get out

I’m no longer surprised how stocks that, in my view, are inherently worthless or at least worth a fraction of their current share price can stay at such a high price or so long but I think the bubble is bursting, and gravity is taking hold, at Highlands Natural Resources (HNR) with a shocking set of results released yesterday. Let’s have a look at the “highlights”!

Lies, smears & blackmail: Loathsome Rita tries to cling on at Magnolia Petroleum

Less than lovely Rita Whittingham is doing her utmost to cling onto the gravy train for her and her relatives which is Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP). You will remember that there are moves to oust the proven failure and install one director from Nostra Terra (NTOG), Evan Ainsworth, and an independent director, Zac "The Knife" Phillips, the City's No 1 oil analyst. This would not be a change of control as Rita asserts since The Knife is independent, but a much needed boardroom clearout. Now to the defence document which is worthy of Jeffrey Archer. It is just low grade fiction.

Naibu – SHOCKER filthy forty update and litigation news. Who's in the frame?

Out of the blue this morning, we have had an update from ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty Naibu. This was an obvious fraud and delisted in 2015 when the money stopped flowing and Houyan Lin disappeared. But the board decided to stand up to be counted. They may have been taken in and signed off on all sorts of lies, but they have been pursuing the case and today have also announced that viable legal causes of action look to exist to go after certain of the various professional advisers who were involved at the time of the flotation.

Saffron Energy - The City's No 1 oil analyst Zac Phillips sticks his knife in and he has a point

I tipped shares in Saffron Energy (SRON) but urged folks to take profits some months ago. The shares were then 8p+ having listed at 5p.

Now we all know what some folks have clearly known for a while, what the problem is.

Bulletin Board Moron Evil Knievil still wrong on Watchstone

Concepta - CEO buys a not un-trivial amount of shares: Follow suit

It is good to see a CEO putting his money where his mouth is and the share purchase by Erik Henau should also scotch the silly rumours that a placing is imminent. The Concepta (CPT)  head honcho has purchased 80,000 shares at 12.175p. He now owns 293,333 shares so in that context this is a decent purchase. We'd hope to see more boardroom buying soon but expect also to see more hard news on order flow very soon.

The fake news Guardian - misleading headline on Brexit and EU workers leaving

I bet the BBC News picks up on it and runs with it too. But its sister publication is quick out of the blocks...The Guardian today runs with a raft of misleading headlines and other fake news as is its wont but the one on Brexit driving EU workers abroad wins the prize. The left wing rag with plunging sales and spiralling losses states: "Almost half of highly skilled EU workers 'could leave UK within five years". The sub head is "Deloitte study finds 47% were considering leaving after Brexit, while overall one-third of non-British workers could leave". Right, okay but hang on what did the survey actually say and was it big enough to be statistically valid?
