Most gold shares have soared over the past few months. Petropavlovsk (POG) shares, which we own, have not. At C7p we are ahead of our tip but not by much. It is disappointing and we apologise. But we have not lost faith. There are reasons for the lacklustre showing which came through in a first half trading statement and in a long chat with CEO Pavel Maslovskiy and chairman Peter Hambro.

We own shares in Petropavlovsk (POG) and wont be selling at anything like the current share price. Our target to sell is 19p. I hope this presentation from the head honcho Peter Hambro explains why we are able to be so bullish.

We own shares in this one so I popped along to hear Peter Hambro of Petropavlovsk (POG) present in person. The Sunday Times reports that today some Russian has built a 20% stake and might bid. I hope not as I see these shares at 19p within three years - they are 6.4p today and a buy.

Petropavlovsk (POG) has updated that it “successfully achieved its Q3 production levels” and “is confidently following its repayment schedule and expects to stay within its financial covenants at the year-end results” - good news!

Investment Case: As noted last month with Berkeley Energy, it is not a surprise to see eye-watering share price declines over previous years for stocks with sector: “Mining”. Shares in *Petropavlovsk plc, formerly Peter Hambro Mining, (POG) have particularly suffered – they down from more than 400p at the commencement of 2011 and more than 100p at the commencement of 2013 to a current 6.47p offer price – amidst a combination of sector-wide and company-specific challenges, the latter including a vast debt pile. However, a recent refinancing and refocusing – with production now being optimised from a cash generation point of view – now offer the promise of a decent recovery from current levels and the shares are a buy…the target price to sell is 19p within three years.

I am generally speaking a gold bug, I believe gold will go higher, the long term fundamentals support that, but whether gold goes higher this year or 5 years from now, I don’t know. The reality is the market forecasts for gold are between 1000/oz., and 5000/oz., anytime within the next 5 years. To quote Mr. Keynes, “the market can remain irrational for longer than you can remain solvent”. Based on that I prefer producers with solid margins, and solid management that are undervalued based on fundamentals. I believe Petropavlovsk (POG) to be in that category.

Bombed-out former gold mining star Petropavlovsk (POG) is cutting costs at its mines in Far East Russia’s Amur region and paying off debts as it maintains its drive to cut costs, boost efficiency and curb expenditure. The fully-listed company, whose shares collapsed from more than £13 five years ago to 2.17p within the past 12 months before bouncing to 6.57p now, says half-year figures will show it is on track to cut its average cash costs, before financing, from $700 (£450) an ounce to $600, against a current depressed $1,093.48c market price.

I have bashed Peter Hambro of Petropavlovsk (POG) over the years but all credit to the man in that he appeared on the main stage at UK Investor to take questions and stand up to me. Respect! Enjoy.

Posting nearly 2,000 UK Investor Show tickets over the past week, I have marvelled at the wondeful place names that populate the UK. Names like Beehive Yard, Smock Alley West, Egg Pie Lane, Ynysmeudwy, and 123 Fake Street.

I have given Peter Hambro and Petropavlovsk (POG) some almighty stick over the years and been proved right. Now Peter reckons it is time to hit back so he and I will debate on the main stage at UK Investor show in a quick fire 10 minute Vinnik vs Santos head to head.

City grandee Sir Peter Hambro is quoted in today's Daily Mail, bleating about how prvate investors in Petropavlovsk (POG) hate him and might allow his POS company to go into administration. Good. I hope they do. I view Mr Hambro and his company with contempt. He is a rich man and shareholders have lost up to 98% of their cash. But Eton educated Hambro just does not get this becuase he thinks he is better than we peasants. I also look at the crony capitalist knees up starting at Indaba. Jeepers these folk all make me so angry for how they abuse ordinary private investors.
