Already 1/3 sold out: Shares, bears, croquet contest, salmon fishing, more shares, drink and pizza at Tom Winnifrith's farm - Sharestock, 10 September

Normally, 70% of seats are sold in the seven weeks before a show. Here we are, more than ten weeks from ShareStock, and one third of the seats are already booked out. Fingers crossed, it will be sold out by September 10 - and why not, as we have a great day on offer. Shares, prize croquet, salmon fishing, all-day booze and home-produced food: what better way to spend a Saturday?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the spiral of death when stakeholders smell a cash crisis – ref AO World

I start with explosions here at the Hovel in Wales and how Bearcast listener G cannot assist. Talking of explosions I comment on IRA loving cottage burners in a Welsh independence march I went on yesterday with the kids HERE. With hindsight I'd rather have attended the Pride March. Well maybe not. It is a marginal call. Then it is onto SPACs and the schoolboy error of Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT). Finally AO World (AO) which looks screwed. I describe how rational behaviour by four groups of stakeholders will ensure a cash struggling company goes down.]

Do I dump my easyJet shares after it screwed me badly as a customer this weekend?

I have been a bit quiet for the last few days because I have been away from the UK for the first time since January 2020.  What excitement!  I am sure a bunch of you have been to Gibraltar, but I had not been there before.  I have two top tips to make.  If you are not boring like me who wants to learn more about history or enjoy some warm weather, and are going there to talk about lower taxation and other matters, do not discuss it all at length in front of other people also having their breakfast.  Second, you have to ask yourself whether you should prefer to fly with British Airways i.e. IAG (IAG) or easyJet (EZJ). And - if you should prefer the former - whether you should hold easyJet shares or not?

The View From The Montana Log-Cabin As Gold Continues to Drift

Another week, another slip in the Gold price: it closed this week at $1813, down from $1827 last week. But as real yields rise, Jordan Roy Byrne of TheDailyGold.com comments that one might have expected Gold to show rather more weakness than it has – especially with the US Dollar still on the rise. That it has not fallen off a cliff suggests that the market is already sensing an abrupt reversal of course by central banks.
