With its shares dipping towards 4p, Falanx (FLX) has announced that its recently acquired SecureStorm unit has enjoyed a renewal of a “critical managed cyber security services contract.” So what?...
BigDish plc (DISH) is a restaurant services company newly entered onto the Standard List this morning. At an IPO price of 4.5p it is calitalised at £12.9 million. I spoke to Aidan Bishop, founder and chairman of BigDish plc. about how BigDish works and where it fits in between existing restaurant plays Groupon (NASDAQ:GRPN), Deliveroo, and Just Eat (JE).
Hello, Share Swishers. At a previous Global Group UK Investor Show, Uncle Tom invited some of you onto the stage to see if you preferred Fevertree tonic water to another kind. All but one of you opted for Fevertree (FEVR). Which helps to explain its amazing rise and rise in the supermarkets, shops and pubs.
Transense Technologies (TRT) “is pleased to provide a trading update for the year ended 30 June 2018”, noting some revenues over 40% ahead of the prior year and “monthly recurring operating lease rental revenue at 1 July 2018 being over 200 per cent. higher than at 1 July 2017”. So is a muted share price response – and the shares down from 69.5p at the start of the year fair?...
In this podcast I look at the REAL state of the Totally I(TLY) balance sheet and I also cover FastForward (FFWD) and the job of a journalist, Cenkos (CNKS) and the future of the AIM Casino, Boxhill (BOX), Avanti Communications (AVN), Pantheon Resources (PANR) and UK Oil & Gas (UKOG)
Having previously been sceptical on Filtronic (FTC) – including from March 2015 at circa 14p – I note the shares currently approaching 30% higher today - at circa 13p, capitalising the company at around £27 million - on the back of a “Contract win” announcement…
Even a fashion luddite like me knows that clothing retail works best when you have a clear and distinct winter and summer period. The fashionistas and general public alike buy to look on-trend and functional as the temperatures respectively plummet or rise. In that vein then, the recent bout of extended hot weather was a retail bullseye - assuming, of course, that you have sufficient online capability to be active where increasingly the action is.
The results which came out in early July made it clear to anyone who could do basic maths that Jim Mellon's FastForward (FFWD) would be passing the hat around shortly. Three ramptastic RNS's followed and today I can reveal that the company is on the road trying to raise £5 million in fresh equity.
Three weeks ago Optibiotix (OPTI) Chairman Neil Davidson bought £150,000 worth of shares in the company at 71p and said in a TV interview that he would buy more when the time was right. Heck, he has now averaged up!
The Communications Director for IP Group (IPO) is a former workmate and all round superstar Ms Liz Vaughan Adams, aka Lizard. So Lizard, I'm sorry to be writing this but I picked this up on the broker wires this morning and I cannot disagree with this sell/go short thesis.
Surprise, surprise, as predicted, despite the statements of Boxhill Technologies (BOX) to the contrary the day before that the audited results would be issued on 31 July, they failed to materialise and the stock has been suspended. Not bloody surprising though as the preliminary results are an absolute can of worms particularly the hole in the client accounts to the tune of a few million quid!
As Cornelius Nepos said: “After the darkness comes the light” and having been in despair last month writing June’s update, I am back to my bouncy best as Optibiotix (OPTI) has become the second Mythical Wonder to become real and in some style…..although I hope it now performs better than the first!
Hello Share Snatchers. Back in the fifties when dads were obeyed, pater urged me to be an estate agent. I'd rather be a reporter and I summoned enough courage to defy him. And jolly good too, as these days estate agents may be becoming a rarer species.
The action of Big Dave and the inaction of Mr Bear are explained in full. The podcast covers: Optibiotix (OPTI), Avanti Communications (AVN), Anglo African Agriculture (AAAP), Westminster Group (WSG) and IDE Holdings (IDE).
On 25th April Clipper Logistics (CLG) updated including “trading for the year to 30 April 2018 is expected to be in line with the board's expectations, with continued growth in revenue, operating profit and net earnings. Results for the year are expected to be announced in July”. They have now been announced – and the shares responded more than 20% lower…
We let you into a secret. We were looking at two stocks as the share tip of the month. It was a coin toss as at last night...
ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Walcom (WALG) – one of just seven remaining – has announced that its largest customer still hasn’t ponied up the wonga. There’s a surprise…..not! Also unsurprising is the share price reaction, where the bid price has dropped to just 0.25p. If you wanted a bag of crisps, you’ll have to settle for Tesco Value ones now.
Well that was a damp squib: AIM-listed Minoan (MIN) announced its interims as expected this morning, but disappointingly there was no confirmation of the travel & leisure sale, nor of what will happen with Cavo Sidero. We are again left waiting – although not for long, I hope. There were, however, one or two little tit-bits in there to offer at least some encouragement.
This was the moment I had been thinking about for most of the 14 hours and 33 miles to keep me going but I could not have imagined the wonderful reception we would get at the Camp as you can see below.
There is nothing like a bunch of regulatory news statements in the morning to get your blood pumping...although I guess a profit warning or so is never good for the heart...or the bank balance. Anyhow the cardiac and fiscal resuscitation units were on standby earlier as three names that have disappointed me at various times in recent months updated the market.
After a lengthy hiatus, the Bulletin Board Moron of the Week has returned, thanks to the unrelenting lobbying of ShareProphets member Juicin Drumroll.
In today's bearcast my mind is a bit elsewhere as I explain HERE. But I cover SalvaRX (SALV), Optibiotix (OPTI), the fraud MySquar (MYSQ) and Falanx (FLX).
I have already covered results from Falanx (FLX) in bearcast but there is one matter than niggles me in the annual report – the “resignation” as a director of CEO Stuart Bladen. Let me explain…
The great success that was the 2018 UK Investor Show saw six 'Dragon's Den' sessions where a number of CEOs each gave a 1 minute (well, supposed to be!) pitch and three 'Dragons' at each session each picked a stock for a £1,000 investment. With the show having been in April, here’s a fourth performance update...
Last week was not ideal for those short of Tesla (US - TSLA) after that tweet announcing the potential biggest take private deal in history. Nothing now surprises me with this company and, also having been a victim of the Autonomy-Hewlett Packard debacle seven years ago, I am wary to dismiss the possibility of a deal out of hand. But as the week closed without any further details emerging, it is looking increasingly likely to me that the funding might not be “secured” as claimed.
Allied Minds (ALM) was due to release its interims at the end of this week but put out a rather strange statement this morning delaying it until the end of September. I thought it would be helpful to offer up an explanation as the situation is more complex and worrisome that this morning’s five-line announcement might indicate.
I have been an avid supporter of AIM-listed gold miner Ariana Resources (AAU) for a long time and have been advocating buying the shares since recommending them last February, as production approached. I like the company, I like head-hocho Kerim Sener who is, in my view, an exception on AIM in that he is straight and I think the news from the company’s joint venture mine at Kiziltepe has been exemplary. In particular, in the wake of the production update last month for Q2, I had been looking forward with some considerable excitement to the full results of that period. But we have a crisis in Turkey: is it a concern?
Plus500 (PLUS) has announced results for the first half of 2018, including emphasising “we have had a very successful first half with two major milestones; another record set of first half results including an exceptional first quarter performance and completion of our move up to the Main Market”. However, having recently exceeded 2000p, the shares have responded materially lower towards 1700p. Hmmm…
Prompted by a reader I wonder exactly what Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy is doing round at Novum Securities these days?
Who would have thought a stodgy stock like Royal Mail (RMG) would be such a trading counter? Over the last year alone it has moved between a sub four quid share price and pushing 630p a share...and when I look back over the last year it has been one of my top active selection larger cap names. I have not owned the name for a few months now but it has come back on my radar today as its regulator Ofcom has just slapped it with a £50 million fine.
China has the world’s most overleveraged, fragile financial system. In 2008, China’s total debt-to-GDP was 140%. It is now roughly 300%, while GDP is slowing. The economy is held together by capital controls. If those fail, the whole system fails. The capital flight in 2015/16 cost the government $1trln in reserves, and that was with ultra-dove Yellen in charge. Imagine what would have happened with Volcker at the helm.
I suggested shares in Tern (TERN) were a sell in June - noting that its main asset, Device Authority, appears to need constant drip feeds of cash from Tern - which, in turn, taps the AIM market regularly and that this summer Jo Retail is proudly wearing his tech hat and taking a swing at The Internet of Things...
Chemring Group (CHG) has confirmed that at approximately 5pm on Friday there was an incident in a flare manufacturing building at its Countermeasures facility near Salisbury and that, although emergency services attended the scene and the incident was quickly brought under control, “tragically, one employee was fatally injured and another employee was badly injured and is currently receiving treatment in hospital”…
Hello, Share Crimpers. Unlike Uncle Tom whom I think uses the services of a famous bear's wife to finish his tax returns, I fill in my online form myself. But then I have a very simple professional life, earning a bit by my writing and turning in reasonable share profits. However, there's no doubt that working out tax liabilities is becoming even more difficult in these ever more complex days - especially for top businesses.
Following the latest Walcom – customer still not coughed up, now its off to the lawyers, here's an August ShareProphets China AIM 'Filthy Forty' performance update...
A trading update from Fusion Antibodies (FAB) commences that it “announces that the company's results for the year ended 31 March 2018 will be announced on 16 August 2018. The results for FY18 are in line with current market expectations”. Hmmm – but it updated in March including “at least 40% revenue growth expected; adj EBITDA broadly in-line with expectations”, so why is the latest update needed so soon before the results announcement?...
Castings plc (CGS) has updated commencing “demand from our main customers' remains strong” - so why do the shares remain well down on the comfortably more than 450p they were at early this year?...
