The country’s, easily, largest and ,certainly, most exciting, one day event for those who want to make more money from shares, UK Investor, is still nearly six months away but already more than two thirds of the 135 exhibitor PLC stands have been reserved. And we have an almost complete all star speaker line-up headed by Luke Johnson, Vin Murria, Mark Slater & Nigel Wray...
Shares in BP (BP.) approached 600p as summer dawned and again earlier this month. They’ve been hit in the recent sell-off though, despite - already offering a hefty dividend - the second quarter results having emphasised “momentum and the strength of our financial frame… we are increasing our dividend for the first time in almost four years. This reflects not just our commitment to growing distributions to shareholders but our confidence in the future”…
Hello, Share Shunters. It is a source of continuing wonder to me that so many hotels exist. Why do huge armies of people feel the need to leave their comfortable homes to stay in featureless boxes, often in strange and unattractive places, all the time? Never mind, they do and that often makes hotel chains a worthy investment.
I daresay we’ve all had the email from a Nigerian General to say we’ve inherited some huge amount of cash from an unknown relative – and all we need to do is hand over our bank details to see the account promptly emptied. But I’ve had an email from a US Army Sergeant making an offer I cannot refuse. All they need are my personal details and I get $6.2 million from a complete and total stranger. What’s not to like!
“LightwaveRF plc (LWRF), the leading smart home solutions provider, is pleased to announce that the Tech Industry ratings publication Trusted Reviews has described Lightwave as a stand out system”. Hmmmmmm…
AIM-listed Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR) has announced a new gold outcrop discovery in Ireland, between its Clontibret gold deposit and the Corcaskea gold target. So will this discovery transform the company’s prospects, or – bearing in mind that it has to report year-end results to May of this year by the end of next month – does this news mark the beginning of a pre-placing ramp?
A few weeks ago I covered the fact that Bellzone Mining (BZM) looked to be in serious trouble, and following recent developments it looks in an even worse state now. This share has been a recent favourite of the pump and dump crews, as the uncertainty over its future has caused the share price to be incredibly volatile and no doubt some will have made money from these daily fluctuations. But what really amazes me is that so many PIs seem willing to buy into a share which already had a very high chance of failure, and even more so now.
The parasite problem affecting markets that is harder to see and may be even more dangerous that the fallout of printing money out of nowhere is “active” versus “passive” investing.
Shares in Safestyle UK (SFE) are currently approaching 30% higher today, above 70p, on the back of a “Commercial Agreement” announcement…
Today's bearcast comes from the Corinth Canal and covers MX Oil (MX), Versarien (VRS), Pantheon Resources (PANR) and Andrew Monk's poor old mum being bullied by her stockbroker son about her will and tax planning. Actually I make a serious point on this issue for poor old Mrs Monk
When a share price suffers a setback, often it is the evil cabal of short sellers who are blamed by retail investors. In the case of Versarien (VRS), even CEO Neill Ricketts is at it.
Shares in Anglo Asian Mining (AAZ) had recently risen materially, to approaching 75p. They then though slipped back – but recent news looked to have justified the earlier move and more and with gold now starting to motor thanks to stockmarket and bond market jitters...
Gold guru Brien Lundin feels that we are likely to be on the verge of an upswing in metals. Brien has been warning people that if we have a liquidity crisis gold will likely get hit if investors need to raise cash. This is what happened in 2008. However, during the recent drop in the market’s gold instead moved up, likely because investors didn’t own it. It’s evident that investors are now finding reasons to buy gold instead of looking for reasons to sell it.
Hello, Share Tweakers. As someone who regularly sets himself up as an Aunt Sally for Tom’s entertaining bearcasts, I hesitate to commend a home builder to you. But I really think Barratt Developments (BDEV) is worthy of your support. And I base that view on its latest trading report.
Tom mentioned clothing retailer Superdry (SDRY) in a bearcast just under a week ago and highlighted the recent profits warning, which was based on warm weather hitting sales of fleeces and the like. The shares are down at five plus year lows and this is starting to have an impact...on the rhetoric from one of the founders. I was amused to read in an article in the deadwood press earlier today that:
In my main bearcast I divide my time equally between Debenhams (DEB) which is, as I explain, a zero in waiting and Wishbone Gold (WSBN) which most certainly is not. But it has been a dire share tip, which I explain in full. As a shareholder myself I share the pain but explain why it really is time to average down, which I have.
Alba Mineral Resources (ALBA) has followed a “Clogau Field Work Results” announcement with a “Horse Hill Update”…
The Sunday Times has been leaked news that the FRC is fining PWC and 2 audit partners over the Redcentric (RCN) scandal which we covered and, indeed, helped to expose as you can see HERE. But the real villains are not the bean counters. I name who they are and ask if the UK is really serious about tackling white collar crime? I suggest that it is not and have a few suggestions to change that.
I gave Falanx (FLX) a hard time as did a number of other shareholders present last Tuesday. But after a confident presentation I thought Mike Read and John Blamire coped well. If the Solarwinds deal pans out as expected then these shares really could be incredibly cheap. 3.3p-3.5p is certainly very much the wrong price and the stance has to be STRONG BUY. Enjoy...
