British Airways- why I was not flying Saturday: an ex customer writes about it and the journalists it bribes

I recently wrote a piece HERE expressing my surprise that the share price of Ariana Resources (AAU) had failed to react positively to good news, so it probably shouldn’t have come as a surprise that a decent update on its resource actually resulted in the share price closing slightly lower.

Regular readers here will know that I am not exactly a fan of Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR), nor have I ever been despite plenty of interest from private investors in this company.

Given that the company is now producing gold, I’ve been somewhat surprised by the lacklustre response that the market has given Ariana Resources (AAU) since that news came.

Orosur Mining (OMI) certainly isn’t amongst the more popular resource stocks on AIM and trading volumes are often verging on non-existent, but I believe that many are missing an opportunity here as they go chasing rainbows with companies that are years away from production, assuming they ever actually get to that stage!

Chariot Oil and Gas (CHAR) has begun to get my attention again recently as it has plenty going on operationally during the next year or so, and could well become a popular share to be in once again.

There are times when a share continues to defy gravity for far longer than most people would expect, and that certainly looks to be the case with Mongolian oil explorer Petro Matad (MATD).

Investors in Prospex Oil and Gas (PXOG) must have been left feeling a little confused and angry yesterday when an RNS landed stating that a placing at a huge discount was taking place.

The last couple of years have been a torrid time for those holding shares in small oil and gas exploration companies in general, with very few exceptions.

The mere mention of lithium seems to be enough to send the share price soaring on many small AIM companies, until reality hits home and the almost inevitable pullback starts.

It never ceases to amaze me just how much some are prepared to risk on very high risk AIM companies where the odds are against them, and this is a sure-fire way to quickly see all of your money go up in smoke!

Hello Share Shufflers. Though I hold quite a few mid-size oil companies, I do not have a stake in Premier Oil (PMO). Perhaps I should, though. The company has been in final stages of financing with banks and bond holders. That signals that the big lenders have faith in the company.

Shares in Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) have performed brilliantly since I tipped them as a buy, but I would now be looking to bank at least some of that profit in the near future.

Gold has been showing signs of weakness but I am yet to be convinced that this is justified and I think the market has over-reacted, which means that there are some good opportunities around for gold bulls.

KEFI Minerals (KEFI) “is pleased to announce that it has conditionally raised approximately £3.8 million (approximately US$5 million), before expenses, through the issue of 761,921,740 new ordinary shares… at a price of 0.5p per share”. Is it right to be so?

Yesterday in Part 1, I outlined the gravity of the situation facing Premier Oil’s (PMO) equity investors. In that piece, I presented my view that the purchase of E.ON’s North Sea assets was an attempt to temporarily fix a covenant breach situation, but that any profits it generates are unlikely to be material against Premier’s debt pile.

Anyone lucky enough to buy independent exploration and production company Premier Oil (PMO) around the January lows achieved a two-bagger in quick time as the shares rallied rapidly from around 20p to achieve a high of 75p last month. It is currently capitalised at £360 million ($500 million) and is a favourite on the bulletin boards. Sadly, it’s not yet clear that Premier has its house in order. There could be some serious pain yet to come.

Many private investors love a bit of a gamble on a big exploration oil drill and there is always plenty of hype surrounding them, but over the past year or so very few have taken place, certainly compared to previous years anyway.

Any of you who like to have a gamble on oil exploration drills should take a look at 88 Energy (88E). The AIM-listed oil explorer is about to kick off a drilling campaign in Alaska at its Project Icewine licence, and it is potentially one of the biggest exploration drills of the year, given the size of resource that it is targeting.

Shares in geoscience business specialising in the provision of data, studies and services to the oil, gas and mining exploration sectors, Getech (GTC) currently trade more than 13% higher today, at 64.5p, on the back of an announcement of “its largest ever single new contract, worth $5 million”. I update in the following having last month concluded, at 53p, that the shares looked to have some speculative appeal.

Buying a share that has spiked on hype is rarely a good idea, especially when the level of hype is unjustified, and that certainly applied to Antrim Energy (AEY). When the UK based company, which is listed on AIM and the TSX, announced the result of a prospective resources report of its 25% owned Skellig block offshore Ireland, you’d have been forgiven for thinking that they’d actually struck oil the way the share price spiked and from all the hype on the bulletin boards!

Borders and Southern (BOR) are the only Falkland Islands oil company to have drilled that doesn’t yet have a farm-out partner. But all that could be about to change imminently, if there is any truth in the rumours currently doing the rounds. The company itself has stated that the farm-out process has already been started, so it should be a matter of when, not if.
