Father Christmas

The annual Woodlarks Christmas Grotto appeal from Tom Winnifrith, 21% of the way there in 3 days - can you spare a tenner?

I know times are tough. But I am sure that if you are reading this you can afford a tenner or a fiver. And I ask that you hand that over to the amazing folks at Woodlarks as it does its first face to face Santa grottos for 200 kids whose, often short, lives are not like those we enjoy.

I'm not a fan of Coro Energy or its management, but if there is any truth in the rumours about assets in Baluchistan it has speculative potential

Looking at the assets which are held by Coro Energy (CORO) and the involvement of James Parsons as executive chairman, it would be easy to quickly dismiss it and move onto something in the oil and gas sector with more potential.

In The Style Group – argues “considerable potential”, so what of the CEO’s swift exit and the strategic review?

In September I noted group describing itself as a “disruptive and inclusive digital womenswear fashion brand”, In The Style (ITS) argued “significant progress against several of the strategic priorities” but I questioned what about the still diminishing cash though?!. That was with the shares at circa 26.5p, so what of a now 13.625p share price after further announcements today?

I remain a fanboy of DS Smith after its first half numbers today

I know that the world of corrugated box packaging and the like is not very interesting, but if you want to hold a FTSE 100 company in your pension fund portfolio which is not a commodities name you could do a lot worse than DS Smith (SMDS). I last loved up the stock a couple of months ago when the price was c. 265p a share. As I write this morning it is nearer 320p a share, so I hope you purchased a few back then. But if you didn’t don’t worry, I believe the stock is still cheap.

Neill Ricketts is the real victim of the collapse of Versarien, says .... Neill Ricketts

Shares in Versarien (VRS) now linger at just over 10p. Just over four years ago they were 182p. Some folks have lost 94% of their money. Many more who believed the promises of jam tomorrow and the outright deceit of boss Neill Ricketts, a man who himself is the largest shareholder having invested a paltry £4,000 for his shares. He has taken out millions in salary, bonuses ( for what FFS?) and by dumping shares as he urged others to buy. So who does Neill Ricketts say is the real victim here? Guess...

I know it's Edison but a scotching of Kefi doing a placing rumour and a valuation that says shares should treble (or more)

These days he goes by the name Lord Ashbourne but I shall always know Edison's mining analyst as the convicted felon Charlie Gibson. Anyhow yesterday he was not thrashing some peasant for being a dirty oik or driving while sloshed but instead penning a note on Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI). Of course Kefi pays for this research but that makes its steer on a placing all the more relevant. No it is NOT doing one right now as I keep being told by folks who will not accept a slam dunk denial from 'arry Adams.
