Even if I live to be 99 I may still be asking why there was a need to question ask the question “Range Resources: A Buy Under 3p?”
It would appear that the name of the game as far as speculating successfully in the small/minnow area is to be able to time correctly when a company such as Magnolia Petroleum will deliver the second leg of a recent spike in the share price.
Bull and bear traps are very often the bread-and-butter of charting techniques, especially given the way that most traders when wrong footed will not then reverse the position and benefit from price action they may have lost money on.
The 200 day moving average is traditionally the benchmark as far as determining the trend for stock or market. Therefore as far as Extract Energy is concerned at the moment, its first break of the 200 day line 2 years has to be regarded as a significant technical watershed.
One of the more difficult challenges as far as stocks or markets are concerned is to call time on an extended bear run. In the case of ECR Minerals it can be seen that there has been an extended drift since the through last summer's double top through the 0.8p level.
As can be seen from the daily chart of Forbidden Technologies, the shares had their time in the limelight going into the start of 2012. Those lucky enough to be on board an unfilled gap to the upside from the 20p's were treated to a Happy New Year at a peak for the shares towards 50p.
Global Petroleum (GBP) has a relatively low cash burn and right now has more cash (£14.8 million) than, at 6.625p, its £13.2 million market capitalisation.
DJ Zak Mir takes a technical look at the latest "hit" from the satellite communications group.
It is now been almost two and a half years since the glory days of Ural Energy when the shares were trading at 18p plus at the beginning of 2011. The issue now is whether after what seems like an interminable period of unwinding/ de- ramping and a general imposition of misery to the bulls, the time has finally come for a sustained turnaround and a possible retracement of what has been lost?
I was delighted to find out that tungsten/gold miner W Resources as its assets focused in the Iberian peninsula-Spain/Portugal. This implies that there is at least some form of wealth creation going on in the "bailout zone" even as the local inhabitants await the arrival of the ECB helicopter money drops.
As someone who is realistic about how doomed the environment is, and who would like to see Global Warming take us back towards the levels of the Holocene Climate Optimum, I have no fear of fracking.
How do you fancy hearing talks and jokes from Evil Knievil and Lucian Miers? How do you fancy seeing the 2013 AIM Cesspit awards handed out to the companies and CEOs who have made the bottom end of AIM the joke that it is?
I can reveal exclusively that at last things are starting to happen on the regulatory front when it comes to AIM Cesspit listed Sefton Resources (SER) – the AIM regulation unit is now conducting multiple investigations into the company.
At the Annual General Meeting of shareholders of Bullabulling Gold Limited (BGL) held today the chairman served up a statement that was classic Bullabullabullshit. Investors are waking up and the shares lost another 10% to close at 2.375p but that still values this company – which may well be toast by mid-August – at £9 million.
Shares in AIM-listed Straight plc (STT), the UK's leading manufacturer and supplier of specialist kerbside recycling containers as well as a key supplier of a broad range of other waste and recycling products, have jumped more than 25% on the back of an announcement that the company has secured a position on a new four year, estimated £30 million-£60 million across six suppliers, framework agreement.
Following an AGM statement from Kenmare Resources (KMR) another broker has tweaked its forecasts and once again the tweak is downwards.
This has been well spun by Cupid (CUP) but yesterday’s trading statement was a disastrous profits warning.
AIM-listed Blavod Wines & Spirits (BES) is a company I have long, very disappointingly, followed – with it continually apparently having been on the verge of a turnaround but never really delivering.
I offer no comment on this weekly feature it is a simple matter of observation.

I have been having some good natured debate with Tom on the pros and cons of Big Sofa Technology (BST) recently and, as ever, he has allowed me to present my bearish version of events in advance of next week’s interims in contrast to his bullish thoughts the most recent of which is HERE.
It all started with a game of croquet. I start with my long term battle with scumbag ex Tory MP, the loathsome Sir Tony Baldry. He is now chairman of Westminster Group (WSG). I analyse its woes after Friday's interims. I look at the forthcoming IPO of the City Pubs Company and hoist some red flags. Then to 88 Energy (88E) and to those who have lost badly by ignoring my previous warnings I warn again. Big Time!
The following censure of Jason Drummond of Teathers (TEA) infamy is damning. It relates to his time at Media Corp (MDC) an AIM disaster story ending in bankruptcy. I think it is fair to say that Jason will not be sitting on any more AIM boards after this.
With its shares having reached 25.75p last week and closed at above 25p on Wednesday, Amryt Pharma (AMYT) announced on Thursday that it was “delighted with the support we have received” for an “oversubscribed placing”, raising a gross €15 million (£13.3 million)… at 20p per share! As a long standing shareholder I say "F**k you." I feel so utterly 100% shafted as will those who paid 26p+ last week after confident results which made it clear that Amryt was fully funded. So I asked Steve Moore to pen an analysis. As I explained in Thursday's bearcast HERE I am too angry to be objective. The fact is that at a 22.5p offer the shares are a BUY.
Hello, Share Collectors. Many of us, I know, are still awash in oil stocks, both the producers and riskier explorers. I’ve been advising that we cut down, as the competition from wind, sun, waves and biomass, threatens to grow. But I think I may have been too hard on ebony nectar and here are a few reasons why.
I’m continuing my look at forthcoming interims with the horror show that is the Woodford-backed RM2 International (RM2), first pointed out as an excellent bear tip by Graham Neary (HERE). One has to ask what the hell was Woodford thinking here?
From the FCA's spreadsheet of short positions required to be disclosed to it, the following shows the shorted AIM shares with positions from 2016 and thus far in 2017 (by net short position %) - and if this position has increased (red), reduced (green) or remained unchanged (black) since last week...
This week's Bulletin Board Moron contest is sponsored by Nyota Minerals, a company that has more lives than all of our reader's cats.
Last week it was the Sunday Times' chat through on personal debt which induced my breakfast coffee to be consumed in an unorthodox fashion. Today it is pension deficits - that quiet corporate horror show.
I am prompted by a great Zero Hedge article HERE to look at the mounting evidence that thanks to what is now the greatest debt binge in history, surpassing that of 2008, we are at peak insanity. Whether it is boob jobs on tick, the latest funding round at Deliveroo at a ludicrous valuation, the downgrade of UK Government debt or the madness of some peer to peer lending there are timebombs aplenty waiting to explode.
A useful lesson has been handed out recently to bears by the price action in two stocks: Telit Communications (TCM), an Israeli fraud quoted in London, and Eros International, an Indian fraud quoted in New York.
Want to get the best sell ideas on AIM? Just ask Zak Mir for his hot buy ideas and the Sith Lord kiss of death will not take long to play out. The world's worst chartist will be serving up more duff calls next Wednesday evening at NEX Exchange in Broadgate. There is more.
Having in the last couple of weeks been slipping back from above 1.3p towards 1p, shares in August tip at a 1.25p offer price Powerhouse Energy (PHE) are now recovering on the back of a “MOU for waste-to-hydrogen facilities” announcement. But they have a lot further to go.
Joining in with Cynical Bear’s run of interims previews, I thought I’d take a look at our old favourite, AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). The history here has been nothing short of a disaster in the last 12 months or so, and appears to be now culminating in a potential cash-crisis.
Having been sparked from well below 200p by a May update including that “in the first 19 weeks of 2017, overall revenues were ahead of the corresponding period last year. The immediate outlook is more positive than it has been for some time”, shares in video security systems group IndigoVision (IND) have now fallen back to around the 200p level on results for the first half of 2017. Hmmm…
Reach4Entertainment (R4E) has announced results from a stated “modest” first half of 2017, though emphasises “second half of current financial year expected to be satisfactory, but 2018 forecasts already looking like a return to form from the key companies with support from the new initiatives of Dewynters Germany and Jampot”…
