Sir Neville Marriner will be conducting past and present members of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, with soloists Nicholas Daniel and Kenneth Sillito, in "Sir Neville Marriner And Friends Play For Nepal", on Thursday 28th May, 7.30pm, at St James's Piccadilly.

Amino Technologies (AMO) has announced an initial €7.9 million, and up to €10.5 million, acquisition of Booxmedia Oy, a Finland-based Software-as-a-Service cloud TV platform provider, extending its IP entertainment delivery offering beyond its current connected-home focus.
A long chat with Brokerman Dan, the crony capitalist resident of the Manchester Slums this morning has resulted in a new declaration of peace in our time. We only await his ordering of a nice big celebratory cake from Northern Ireland for the deal to be sealed. We still disagree on a few things, notably the actions of market abuser Chris Oil.
Shares of Trinity Mirror have been in the news themselves over the recent past, with the phone hacking scandal doing the damage on a fundamental basis. What is interesting here is the way that initially it would appear that the price action of the stock was actually discounting any negative news which may have come out of the courts.
Unloved AIM minnow Armadale Capital (ACP) says it is in ‘advanced discussions with potential partners’ to bring its 80%-owned low-grade Mpokoto gold project in the Democratic Republic of Congo into production ‘in the first half of 2016’. The company, whose shares have tumbled 70% from their 12-month high to a mere 0.03p, says it cut its losses by nearly a third last year to £1.1 million and awaits a definitive feasibility study, now ‘near completion’, into Mpokoto, where a scoping study last autumn suggested an increased resource estimate of 678,000 oz., with 1.45 grammes of gold per tonne of ore, along with opportunities to target exploration for another potential 120,000 to 150,000 oz.

On Tuesday Tern plc (TERN) announced the appointment of Mr Darron Antill as CEO of Cryptosoft. I am sure Mr Antill is a fine chap, but the RNS made no mention whatsoever of the fate of the founder and CEO (until now) Mr Jon Penney. Why? And then there is a very impressive looking CV of the new man. Is that all it seems?
Although charting cannot be regarded as an exact science even at the best of times it can be seen on the daily chart of Optimal Payments at the moment we have one of the better setups on our hands.
If you want me to analyse a stock for you just drop me a line at [email protected] - Today I look at Eland Oil & Gas, Mothercare and Renew Holdings.
Hello Share Chinkers. There are some strange things going on in the world of mergers and take-overs. It ain’t right, mister.
John Meyer of SP Angel this morning comments on Amur Minerals, Anglo American, Armadale Capital, Bacanora & W Resources as well as offering a detailed macro view on the news that is shaping global mining and the AIM mining pond.
Having closed last week at 750p, shares in CFD trading provider, Plus500 (PLUS) were suspended earlier today at around 300p. They now trade again – currently at around 250p – with the company having issued a statement “to respond to recent speculation regarding the current status of Plus500UK's dialogue with the FCA”…
Wednesday night’s result of New World Oil & Gas’ (NEW) EGM threw up an intriguing figure; 68,105,573. Now that figure might not seem particularly stimulating to the casual observer, but this block of votes voted in favour of Resolution 1 (for the placement) and against Resolution 2 (for the director/advisor warrants). Quite why anyone would have been in favour of the placement yet against the warrants is a bit on the peculiar side. Then again the New World debacle has attracted its fair share of odd characters. Speaking of which, did I mention that Chris Oil’s broker held 69,815,402 New World shares on the morning of the EGM?
With its shares having fallen from a 225p October 2013 AIM admission price and almost 400p in September, Tungsten Corp (TUNG) has now raised a, subject to General Meeting approval, further £17.5 million in a placing, though now at 80p per share. The following updates as the company purportedly “begins to transform the world's supply chain”. Hmmm…
Today's main podcast covers Tungsten, Plus500 (sorry Paul you are wrong), Coms, Mosman Oil & Gas,Gate Ventures and Blur Group. Apparently it is also a work anniversary - 3 years away from Rivington. A pause for a moment's thought.
Empresaria (EMR) has updated that it “has made a good start to the year, delivering like for like growth against this period in 2014” and that it “remains on course to meet market expectations for the full year.”
Although it can be seen on the daily chart of Premier Foods that the price action of recent months has not exactly been simple, there are certain features which are worth taking note of on a technical basis.
Naibu, Jiasen and over in Germany Joyou, it is all happening on the China fraud front. The London Stock Exchange's attitude and inaction is a disgrace. If you still own shares in JQW, Camkids, Jiasen, Chaintek or Asian Citrus you are bonkers. A short bearcast covering the day's events and a meeting with a feral cat.

Value investing is how you make money from shares. Any other approach is not investing but speculating and is, by definition, hit and miss. So do you want to know what Britain's leading value investors are thinking and what shares they are buying and selling? Today's special opportunity is.... Three great value investors will be on stage together discussing how they select stocks and what they are buying and selling at the Global Group UK Investor Show in London on April 21.

From the FCA's spreadsheet of short positions required to be disclosed to it, the following shows the shorted AIM shares with positions from 2017 and thus far in 2018 (by net short position %) - and if this position has increased (red), reduced (green) or remained unchanged (black) since last week...
Soorry it is rugby day. C'mon Ireland. As you can see Joshua is getting himself ready...
This morning, on such a snowy day, I was thinking how nice it would be to go somewhere quiet and sit, read the paper, and drink my coffee without being bothered by people. As it happens, I live just down the street from the Business Design Centre in Islingtion, and it is Master Investor day, so that would fit my plan perfectly.
The market was remarkably sanguine about the operational update served up by Telit (TCM) this week and at 160p the shares remain a compelling sell.
A Trading Update from Veltyco Group (VLTY) a few weeks ago noted, following continued “strong” trading in December, results “significantly ahead of market expectations”. However, having exceeded 100p last year, the shares are currently available at 89p to buy and this looks to represent an opportunity ahead of April-expected results. BUY at 89p with a target to sell of 125p.
Hello, Share Walkers. Anyone not subscribing the measly £5.99 a month to reap all the trading advantages of this beautiful website is probably taking an unacceptable risk. Especially at this time of year, when you still have a chance to sell your losers to cut your capital gains bill.
I just can’t help fearing for AIM-listed Cloudbuy (CBUY) and its shareholders. Here we are heading for two years after a £5.75 million rescue refinancing by Mr Roberto Sella and now post a further rescue refinancing last December (another £3.5 million committed, of which £1.7 million has been drawn) and I still wonder if the company will ever make any money. Yesterday morning we had its FY17 numbers: they are not as awful as the last lot, but it still look pretty bad.
