Minoan shares up on Rule 24 Change – Greek Blogs: Trading Buy

Northgate: quality but not at this level

Northgate (NTG) shares have been a good buy for value. Now they mainly have only price momentum to justify further buying after their eighty per cent rise in price over twelve months. But that looks to me, as though it has gone as high as it should reasonably get at this stage, allowing for a significant healthy correction.

Cyan – Blatant ramp via over-hyped RNS so when is the rescue placing?

AIM Cesspit posterboy Cyan (CYAN) is – after 8 years of non-delivery – set to run out of cash by Christmas. Hence today it issued an utterly over-hyped press release (go ahead sue me for libel, see where it got Sefton) in an attempt to ramp the shares ahead of it, yet again, asking investors to pony up for a rescue share issue.

It is now only a matter of time for AIM listed Sovereign Mines of Africa (SMA) which at 3.5p is valued at £8.3 million. The company is clearly sub scale as a gold explorer and its cash position is dire. Come on Sovereign – it’s time to fess up: how much will you be diluting shareholders to hell and when? I am sure that your slimeball broker Jerry Keen of Shore Cap is already on the case.

Central Asia Metals looks a great longer term investment in copper

On the AIM market these days it seems as though many would far rather buy into the latest pump and dump on a piece of junk, than invest in a company that is actually running its business properly and making money. The problem with putting your money into junk is that at some point true value normally shines through and the resultant share price crashes can be spectacular.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The ponzi of the UK state pension, 15 million job losses and the failure of the British State

I wrote an article yesterday on my own website about the ponzi that is the UK state pension and how it is bound to collapse unless very hard choices are made which they will not be. I note a lot of smart comments were posted by readers on that article so delve deeper into this issue but go on to address other massive changes that will hit the UK workforce and how the State is in total denial about how it will cope. It comes up with bad solutions or no solutions but the net result is that in 20 years time you and I will not be able to rely on the State for anything at all - so what should we all do now?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - The PLC Death List Update - 9 new entrants

I started the PLC death list in June 2015 with 21 members. The aim is to pick stocks that will either go bust or get slung off the AIM Casino. Each departure requires a nreplacement. With nine new entrants today 40 names have joined this select group. So far there have been two outright failures on my part, Mariana Resources (MARL) and Jersey Oil & Gas (JOG). There was one volte face but I was ahead at volte face point and it was a great call both short and long - Wandisco (WAND), two near kills, InternetQ (INTQ) and Monitise (MONI) and thirteen slam dunk kills: Cloudtag (CTAG), Worthington (WRN), African Potash (AFPO), Jiasen (JSI), Camkids (CAMK), China Chaintek (CTAK), JQW (JQW), Afren (AFR), Daniel Stewart (DAN), Sefton (SER), Outsourcey (OUT - boy I enjoyed that one - Afriag (AFRI) and Auhua.
