There has been Ali vs Frazier, Blur vs Oasis an even Kramer vs Kramer, but in the battle of Ophir Energy it is Lansdowne Partners vs Zak Mir.
Chesnara (CSN) hosted an investor conference on Monday.
It may be to some harsh observers that Bloomsbury Publishing was effectively a one trick pony given the Harry Potter phenomenon. But it would appear that e-books have enabled the group to cast a new spell over its fortunes and share price.
AIM-listed diamond miner and explorer Firestone Diamonds (FDI) has announced “our financing efforts remain on track and, if successful, would significantly reduce the equity required to fund the main treatment plant at Liqhobong.
This week near 100% share price rise for Vatukoula Gold Mines was flagged not once but twice over the past month on a technical basis on ShareProphets.
Today I have had my attention drawn to Mountfield Group (MOGP) which at 1.18p is capitalised at £2.2 million. My basic appraisal is that the shares are cheap although the spread is pretty unfriendly.
Despite losing the highly lucrative Mir family contract over a year ago it would appear that Telecom Plus, the company and its shares, have been able to go from strength to strength.
African Eagle (AFE) joined AIM from PLUS in June 2003. Today it is six months away from oblivion.
While it may be tempting to go with the downside for the shares of Bwin.party Digital Entertainment, what can be seen from the daily chart of the gaming group over the bulk of the past year is the way that there was a major base put, especially over the autumn and winter period.
I am still seething at how fundamentally Sefton Resources (SER) tried to hoodwink the market with the way it presented its results yesterday. In a near 25 year career I have never seen anything like it. It is truly scandalous.
The start of May delivered a very threatening appearance to the chart of Xxcite Energy, the stock which ironically is one of my favourite oil plays.
AIM and Canada-listed Aureus Mining (AUE) has announced the results of an optimised feasibility study as it seeks to progress its New Liberty gold project into Liberia’s first commercial gold mine.
Today’s near 100% share price rise for Vatukoula Gold Mines was flagged not once but twice over the past month on a technical basis on ShareProphets. But the question is whether there is more to come?
It is hard to know where to start with the 2012 Annual Results from AIM Cesspit listed director lifestyle, ooops meant to say oil production, company Sefton Resources (SER) there is so much in them that begs questions rather than providing real knowledge
I have been asked to give a technical view on LSL Property Services which has been tipped by Alpesh Patel. The fact he is richer, cleverer, better looking, has more friends and more hair than me, will not sway my analysis of the stock.
It’s with some fear I write a tip as a request from Tom W, because the last time I did it was on Channel 4’s Show Me the Money and I was ranked at the end of that series the top picker among 45 based on performance. So that’s going to be a hard act to follow.
In 2011 the Indonesian government revoked the EKCP licences of Churchill Mining (CHL). After several futile appeals against the decision, Churchill Mining decided to take matters to the ICSID, for a $1,054B claim, excluding interest.
FTSE-250 international engineering specialist serving a blue-chip client base in the oil and gas, petrochemical and mining and metals sectors, Kentz (KENZ) has emphasised in an AGM statement that it is “excited about the future prospects for the continued solid growth in the business and continuation of the excellent track record the company has delivered since listing”.
What will Father Christmas be putting in the stockings of the writers of ShareProphets, nine share tips, plus what sexism at the BBC
It only took 15 days but I have just received my first lawyer's letter of the year, via email. So here is a little quiz. Who sent the letter:
So Carillion (CLLN) has gone tits up. You do rather feel for its 19,500 employees but as folks work out what happens next there is an orgy of recriminations. What lessons do you learn?
So yesterday saw Joshua go to his first proper football match - Brislington Ladies vs West Ham Ladies. A full photo report will follow later but the language from the Essex Girls in claret and blue was not very lady like. Listeners, I was shocked. On the markets I look in detail at Versarien (VRS), Greatland Gold (GGP), Velocys (VEL), RM2 (RM2) and as well as Nomates Neil Woodford I also have some Julie Meyer news, I fear that "Praise Be the Lord" may be about to send me a letter.
A hat tip to Waseem Shakoor for the graphic below. Carillion (CLLN) went bust today. Greatland Gold (GGP) has seen its shares halve as Newmont has pulled out of a jv. So what else do folks owning these two stocks own? See below.
As you know I got a lawyer's letter from the Ariadne Group run by Julie Meyer yesterday. I explain why the in house lawyer poodle chap is a very confused young man. He has not, as he said he would, got back to me to clarify his confused position. I urge you to read Nigel's AIQ expose today as it is most excellent. I discuss Haike Chemical (HAIK) and why it is by definition a bad company as is - as per today's article here - Purplebricks (PURP). Then it is onto the looming bun fight at Paternoster Resources (PRS) - if any of Nick Lee, Amanda Van Dyke and Melissa Sturgess which to dish dirt on the oppo, I am here and happy to publish it all. You see I am everybody's friend.
Having taken a look at the prospectus for the flotation of AIQ (AIQ) on the Standard list in part 1 we now move on to Mama Captain, Barrel2U, Mama Harbour and iBuddee. These outfits have faced allegations of being ponzi/MLM (multi-level marketing)/pyramid/money game schemes.
Andrew Monk's VSA floated AIQ on the Standard List last week. Its shares soared 1000% and were suspended. As Andrew notes, through the passive investment vehicle RRR I own shares in AIQ (about £10 worth - CORRECTION I am told it is £1841 worth!). I will try to sell the lot as the valuation is insane. But Monk wants to defend his corner so before our writers really go to town - and I am on their side - here is Monkey in his private email to clients today...
North of the Border, www.scottishhousemove.co.uk is going after Purplebricks (PURP) big time. Its homepage boasts that it will undercut Purplebricks by £750 and carries a stream of dismal reviews from allagents.co.uk for its larger rival. Then it really goes on the attack as you can see below.
Investors who believed all the hype surrounding Greatland Gold (GGP) received a nasty shock this week when the share price collapsed, but for many of us who have been around the market for a while it didn’t really come as much of a surprise.
Last week’s flotation of AIQ (AIQ) on the LSE’s standard list raised a lot of questions. For a start there was demand for the stock, but apparently no stock available to buy: it seems the registrar had yet to send out certificates and so the shares rocketed until they were suspended. But after much digging, there appears to be rather more to the story than the listing of a bare Cayman Islands shell. Where to start?
There's been an accelerated bookbuild which has seen Adam Reynolds and a number of close allies place out all their stock in React PLC (REAT). The shares we own were not placed out. We will only sell after advising you to do so.
To understand why 2018 will be a catastrophe, imagine a magnificent mansion built with the finest materials and craftsmanship and furnished with the most expensive furniture, carpets and decorated with finest art. Now imagine this mansion is built on quicksand. It will have a brief shining moment and then sink slowly before finally collapsing under its own weight.
Despite the scepticism previously exhibited on this stunning website, I would not be in a rush to sell shares in Versarien (VRS). Even though yesterday’s leap was approaching 35%. That’s normally a signal for this old punter to trouser the profits. But this is one of those mystery shares which could go either way, and I don’t welcome the pain of maybe selling too quickly.
Clearly, the whole AIQ (AIQ) IPO was a farce the way it has been handled and having also been digging around, there is more to come but I will leave it in the excellent hands of Nigel to report further on the dodginess here. I will just turn my hand to a bit of poetry inspired by Monk’s defence this morning and by recent Twitter hilarity.
Hello, Share Pilers. Even though you must be making dollops of money from shares, given the perky Footsie, some of you are still scrimping a few quid a month, by avoiding a life-saving subscription to this magnificent website. That makes no sense, as it will help you avoid making slips which could put you back to square one again.
Geotechnical engineering contractor Van Elle (VANL) has updated regarding the demise of Carillion plc as it “carries out regular work for Carillion as a specialist lead sub-contractor, principally in respect of rail improvement and maintenance work where Network Rail is the end customer”…
