Rank Group shares remain an Avoid for me

Whilst shares in AO World (AO.) are currently up nearly 10% today as I write, the apparently “leading online electrical retailer” continues not to make an operating profit and has fallen into (admittedly slight) net debt, since corrected by a placing, I have not been a fan of this name for years and years, most recently back in early June when the stock looked a clear avoid at its then 72p share price. Despite today’s share price rise, it is now at a c. 45p share price level and still an Avoid for me. And talking about shares I have avoided for many years, how are those of Rank Group (RNK) getting along?

So why are the shares currently approaching 18% lower at 30p, a £23.2 million market cap?

Made.com – Gotcha!

I explained in detail earlier this week why Made.com (MADE) is going to HAVE to do a bailout placing. Floated at 200p just over a year ago, raising £100million by issuing new shares while existing shareholders lobbed out a cheeky £90 million of stock onto gullible institutions, the company is quite simply running out of cash. Today it “responded to media speculation” and essentially ‘fessed that I was right. This will be messy.

Predator – ouzo on cornflakes for the Sheriff as Peterhouse quits after share dealing stink

It is sad to have to explain to some demented haters out there but this ouzo on cornflakes thing is my little joke and I am not an alcoholic and you are humourless bastards. These days, I reckon if I shift 5 units a week, that is a heavy week. Anyhow it is ouzo on cornflakes for me after this article and a word of praise for Peterhouse Capital for a shock resignation just before the close yesterday.  Make no mistake this is about the growing share dealing scandal involving Predator Oil & Gas (PRD) chairman Paul Griffiths.

The Man from the Pru Could Shine his Shares as he Aims to Conquer Africa and Asia

Hello Share Gatherers. Companies whose profits are rising are fairly rare in these dangerous days. But Prudential (PRU) saw an improvement of 8% in the first six months of the year. The adjusted operating profit came in at $1.7 billion. Most of that comes by way of a boom in life insurance and asset management.
