If you believe some bloggers, Cupid is not a stock to have great faith in on the long side, but what we have seen on the daily chart here since March is actually quite a good example of consolidation/stabilisation.

Following Shareprophets teaming up with spreadbetting company ETX, I have entered a charity Christmas trading challenge with Tom Winnifrith. I haven’t spreadbet before and tend to focus on longer-term investments but, for a good cause, here goes…
The Opportunity: Small gold exploration stocks are loathed and reviled. For good reason.
Bushveld Minerals (BMN) has been something of a classic recovery play in the recent past, in the wake of the bounce from the 3p zone in November, an event which was flagged by technical / charting events.
We tipped Gable Holdings (GAH) at a 45p offer price on our Nifty Fifty Website. They now trade at 72p-73.5p. So what next?
While Apocalypse Now may have highlighted the curious attractions of napalm in the morning, it may be that as far as Mariana Resources (MARL) is concerned in the recent past it is the smell of bulls with their fingers burnt that provides an aroma to remember.
TXO (TXO) has this morning raised £500,000 at 0.1p. The shares are off by 0.02p at 0.11p. The deal is probably good news for TXO, although the dilution is painful, but that is not the real story here.
Hello Share Twiddlers: There is a view among the more cautious investor that he or she should have about three quarters of their money in Footsie companies.
A few days ago I covered Afriag (AFRI) and today came the first bit of news that I wanted to hear. The shares are up to 1.23p but are still a buy.
Added to the Growth portfolio of the premium Nifty Fifty offering last month, Vislink plc (VLK) has subsequently announced (last week) the posting of a circular convening a General Meeting on 17th December to seek shareholder approval for a move to AIM from its current main market London listing and to increase its ability to issue shares on a non-pre-emptive basis to 20% of its share capital in order to facilitate its growth strategy. Having commented on the company on this website HERE and following also an update from researcher Edison, the following updates the story.
With plastics products manufacturer for global niche markets, Plastics Capital (PLA) having announced results for the six months ended 30th September 2013 earlier this week, Cenkos - broker to the company since 2008 – has updated its view on the current valuation.
I headed off to Mines & Money in Islington yesterday, largely to see the launch of 100 Inspirational Women in Mining, a new book produced by Amanda Van Dyke and her Women in Mining Organisation. Yes, there was free champagne at the launch.
From the perspective of the bulls it can be said that in recent months Tower Resources (TRP) has been an example of everything they would wish to see – a recovery situation that keeps on giving.
The U.S. Comex gold futures declined 2.38% this week to $1,220.80 on Tuesday. The price touched $1,214.60 earlier in the day after a plunge of 2.29% on Monday
You would have thought that even being able to spell or say Petropavlovsk (POG) would give a trader some right to make money here. Er…no.
Hello Share Dabblers: There's an odd situation building up in Shareland. The Footsie is not behaving as I would, after yonks of experience, expect it to behave.
What will Father Christmas be putting in the stockings of the writers of ShareProphets, nine share tips, plus what sexism at the BBC
It can be difficult just buying and holding a share at times, especially when nothing is really happening with the share price and many of its peers are seeing large rises.
I noted yesterday that Blue Prism (PRSM) was one of the most shorted shares on AIM. And having had a butchers at the numbers I can see why.
Again Carillion (CLLN) dominates the news and the political class is talking utter tosh with our useless Prime Minister Mrs May leading the way. By way of contrast Luke Johnson is superb in his Sunday Times Column today. Luke for PM before it is too late.
A note popped into my inbox with regard to the demise of Carillion. At first glance, it seems we’ve all been here before – way back in 1990 (when even Tom Winnifrith was a young man). For Carillion today, read Coloroll then.
If you listened to my bearcast of yesterday you will be in no doubt that I am aa big bear of Dignity (DTY) based on some simple maths. I take my hat off to a ShareProphets reader (Buy100ozSilver) for his maths in our comments section. His ( or her) post merits a wider audience.
It being the weekend, I thought I would take a break from stock specifics and make a few observations about a brilliant film that I watched recently on Netflix that I would recommend to anyone interested in investing, and particularly short-selling, as it tells the fascinating true story of Bill Ackman’s costly billion dollar short against alleged pyramid scheme, Herbalife (NYSE: HLF).
Hello, Share Peckers. I’ve just recently named three of my shares I have high hopes for. So to balance the boat, I’ll now nominate a trio of not-so-hopeful members of my portfolio. Three shares that I plan to sell as soon as the market indicates the best time.
It's been 18 months now since I cut the (virtual) cord with Sky TV (SKY) and I can't say that I have missed anything, except a £50 per month-ish bill. It's been replaced by Freeview, at the impressive price of free, and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) at £6.99 per month.
I am sure that having bought the duff Italian assets of Sound Energy (SOU), Saffron Energy (SRON) shares will be aggressively promoted when they return from suspension. All the usual suspects in team ramp are already making initial noises. But should we really get excited? The City's No 1 oil analyst, Zac "The Knife" Phillips of SP Angel thinks not and opines today:
I thought I’d do a brief update on the first of my share ideas for 2018 – AIM-listed Bowleven (BLVN). Brief, because not much corporate news has come out, but there were a couple of interesting TR-1s. Tipped at around 30-31p, the shares were 32.7-32.9p at Friday’s close – it’s higher (good) but I don’t think I’ll be selling yet to cash in the odd penny!
And so the blockchain spoofing continues. Step forward Stapleton Capital (STC), a standard list shell listed on 21 September to invest in telecoms. Its main man, the Holmes groupie Rodger Sergant has seen the light and the company is now to be known as BlockChain Worldwide (BLOC) The statement issued begs questions for the sleuth at 221B Baker Street.
Westminster Group (WSG) is a company which I once had high hopes for, but in the past it has always been one which has promised the earth but has failed to deliver much of any real substance.
It has been a bit volatile at times but if you bought the late August plunge in the shares of the UK's leading mobile and electricals retailer Dixons Carphone (DC.) as discussed HERE then you have made a few quid.
