I am really sorry that I missed this session from the analysts floor at UK Investor Show 2015. Luke Johnson is one of the most successful entrepreneurs of my generation starting real businesses employig thousands of folks. In this session he discussed who are entrepreneurs and why they matter so much.
Malcolm Stacey reckons that an independent Scotland will be innundated with folks from England seeking a better life but then he also believes in and worships the Money Tree. Tom Winnifrith reckons Scotland should be liberated, towed off into the Atlantic and sunk. After the past four weeks you have probably had enough of whinging celtic bores but if you want more where that came from here is a man who has fled the post industrial wastelands in search of work, liberty and the joys of free enterprise but retains a romantic sympathy for his welfare addicted compatriots. Over to Nigel McSomerville.
When we have been talking with potential investors and partners about steaming the Pilot oil field, we have often been asked who else steams oilfields, and does anyone do it offshore?
As deranged blogger Chris Oil sweats on whether the Takeover Panel will make him bid for New World Oil & Gas he is bleating in twitter about how no-one is talking about his penchant for inviting foppish middle aged Old Harrovians into his hotel bathroom anymore. Always keen to please we bring you our Monday Caption Contest. Simply post your entries in the comments section below, deadline midnight tonight (UK time)
Flip flop himself posted a couple of entries and almost won but I would have been accused of fixing the contest so we can’t have that. As such the winner is Bondholder with a posting, needless to say, from the LSE Asylum
Hello Share Jigglers. It’s not easy to collect readers for my modest column at the mo. What with all the current excitement on this glittering website.
Ben Turney seems to think that bankrupting a stack of private investors and allowing a false market to run in an AIM stock is a good thing and will clean up AIM. Apparently young Ben has a lot of supporters on the LSE Asylum which is a clear sign that he is losing the plot. Anyhow, as such he is not allowed to enter his own tweets or posts in this week’s Bulletin Board Moron contest as he needs to give others a fair chance. With four days to go to the General Election we are also allowing any daft MP quotes in this contest.
On 30th April I ran an article stating “Daniel Stewart – shares suspended at 4.30 PM today?” The shares were in fact suspended the next morning as the company had been unable to find a replacement Nomad for Westhouse which quit on April 1. Shares in Daniel Stewart will retrade from tomorrow as it has found a Nomad that will act for it but with very odd conditions. Daniel Stewart responded to this article by sending a pompous and fascistic letter demanding that I pull the article within 48 hours and swear never to repeat its content or else. Suffice to say I will happily see the bitchez in Court but the tone of the correspondence is both amateurish and fascistic at the same time.
Investment Case: Formerly Blavod Wines & Spirits, this is a company which has been around for ages but has thus far failed to deliver. However, having joined the board as a non-executive in 2010, Don Goulding - previously a senior executive and lastly UK Managing Director at industry giant Diageo - took the full reins in late 2011 and has led the company to exit distribution for third parties to focus on developing owned brands. Although not yet reflected in the financial results, this looks a move of some promise and the shares at a 0.8p offer price, capitalising the company at sub £3.5 million, are a buy.
Chris Bailey, the founder of Financial Orbit always finds the quirkiest data - this week it concerns ripe bananas. The bad news starts in China and ends up with some sage words from George Soros. Those who expect the equities surge to continue ad infinitum should spare a few minutes to listen to this podcast.
Only one company mentioned today and this is Tungsten (TUNG) where I suggest there may be a bit of a problemo revealed this week. Elsewhere in this podcast I look at why the post election surge in equities simply will not be sustained and indeed should be viewed as a selling opprtunity.
Vela (VELA) is a stock that we have tipped on HotStockRockets and it looks an interesting play. The shares are 0.2p and I reckon that NAV could well be in excess of 0.5p. Of course most of investments are illiquid private companies so the shares will always trade at a discount to NAV but the current discount seems excessive.
This week's No-prize for services to ShareProphets goes to the mighty Chris Oil whose efforts to become a dandy David Lenigas gave us nine of this week's top-ten most-read stories. And it was across all our mediums: web, podcast, and video. That's a triple-play that we've never seen before.
What a total omnishambles New World Oil & Gas (NEW) has become. Why were the shares not suspended last week as I advocated to howls of abuse from followers of flip flop Pitchfork Ben Turney who now - belatedly - seems to agree. In this podcast I pose some serious questions for the company and its advisers and have a few suggestions on what needs to happen. And a warning for some of flip flop Pitchfork's followers who have piled in.
The highlight of the election was seeing Vince Cable, the man who has predicted 17 of the last 4 recessions lose his seat. What joy that brought. My cheers could be heard across Kalamata Bay as crazy old Vince was soundly thrashed in Twickenham. Of course it is personal.
Having updated at its end of April AGM that it continues to monitor opportunities to further develop its range of platforms, “but given the potential size of origination capability of our existing platforms, we are only pursuing significant opportunities that can add material and differentiated origination”, GLI Finance (GLIF) has announced a £1.25 million investment in Funding Options Ltd.
I’ve been following the New World Oil (NEW) story with interest, and also a fair amount of surprise. The surprise element has largely come from reading the various chat forums, and even Twitter, and seeing the general lack of understanding of the situation the company and those taking part in the potential placing have found themselves in.
We hear that a couple of escape capsules have already been jettisoned from the imploding Death Star (well done Glen Jones & Amy Clayton) and that more are set to be launched within days. To celebrate that we have more copies of Sith Lord Zak “Judas” Mir’s seminal work on technical analysis to hand out. It seems that the Sith Lord is still beavering away for the Evil Empire but for how long?
Shares raced ahead almost across the board on Friday. Even dogs like Rosslyn Data (RDT) managed to eek out some gains but its stock still languishes at 14.25p despite a raft of meaningless huff and puff releases and well down on its IPO price of 33p a year ago. And so I have a small question for the heavily loss making firm.
Nine share tips, giving in a tax-efficient way, don't count Trump out. And much more...
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. They are: Paul Scott, Britain's top share blogger, Nigel Wray, the man known as Britain's Buffett, and Dr Paul Jourdan the boss at the hugely successful Amati fund management operation.
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.
