Shares in Partnership Assurance Group (PA.) were knocked sharply yesterday and have fallen again today to 126p thanks to the budget proposal to allow folks not to take an annuity when their pension is due – annuity provision is a major part of Partnership’s business. Bear raider Evil Knievil reckons the market has got it wrong and has bought the shares.
We are 34% ahead in six months on this Nifty Fifty share tip but there is more to come. Advanced Computer Software Group (ASW) earlier announced that it has been awarded preferred supplier status by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust. It is not this contract per se but what it says for forecasts that matters.
The latest document from AIM listed Sirius Minerals (SXX) as it battles to get planning permission to destroy the North York Moors, oops we meant build a new mine, regards its Mineral Transport System. And the world’s number one mining analyst Roger Bade of Whitman Howard says this is another positive step to getting permission.
Fears over China’s current growth prospects may have knocked the investment appeal of iron ore for now, but Beowulf Mining (BEM), the AIM and Stockholm-listed company doggedly pursuing iron ore projects at Kallak in the north of the country, as well as copper and gold prospects in the same region, remains determinedly upbeat. Sampling from pilot test mining has produced 2.7 tonnes of concentrate at the Kallak North deposit with 69.4 per cent iron at a magnetite recovery of 95 per cent and entrepreneurial executive chairman Clive Sinclair-Poulton says he expects more work on the hematite ore in May or June.
Hello share gang. I listened to the budget live from start to finish, and also Labour's view of it.
The only charity I support (it is a long story) is Woodlarks. It is an amazing organisation which provides severely handicapped folks with probably their only opportunity to enjoy a holiday each year. This is not a fluffy kitten fashionable charity. Keeping it going is hard work and the team at Woodlarks are all total heroes.
In light of the publication of Gulf Keystone Petroleum’s Competent Persons Report, and the subsequent market crash it seems prudent to review the valuation work I completed on this company just 10 months ago. I warned you then…
The spin doctors of Chancellor George Osborne had leaked much of what he said so it is not as if anyone was waiting with baited breath. What he did serve up was a combination of political posturing and timidity. It is not a conservative budget and it does little for Britain.
Dan Betts, chief executive officer of Hummingbird Resources (HUM), is celebrating one a million-ounce increase in the company’s gold resource at the Tuzon deposit in its Digbe project in southern Liberia by casting his eyes round the market for new opportunities. Helped by infill drilling, which he says ‘has added $500,000 [£312,500] for every metre drilled’, the AIM-quoted company has hoisted its estimated resource at Tuzon to 2.5 million oz. with an improved if still modest 1.6 grammes of gold per tonne of ore.
In the wake on interims yesterday, commissioned researcher Edison has published a detailed note on K3 Business Technology (KBT) arguing that the shares, now 199p, are worth 229p. The house broker and Tom Winnifrith reckon 255p and 250p respectively are fair.
Much has been written on Gulf Keystone (GKP) since last Thursday when it released a Competent Persons Report (CPR) and provided an operational update. I have been warning about this company for a while now and have no wish to gloat as pretty much every private investor in the land is now sitting on nasty losses as it languishes at multi year lows.
The Federal Reserve Open Market Committee meets to decide on policies in a two-day meeting with the outcome due Wednesday after the European market close. Expectations are for another reduction to the Fed’s bond-buying programme, otherwise known as QE [quantitative easing] and for interest rates to remain at ultra-lows for an extended period.
Dear Readers, at present, investors are faced with a fully inflated bull market and that reduces the number of 'low risk' tech plays for investors to chase. You therefore need to read in between the lines. Don't just look at the historic bottom and top line, but look at forecast profits and if there is potential for profit-beating. Investors who are more risk inclined will even look at companies that don't have broker forecasts.
The three Cs of Crisis, China and Collateral have proved to be a potent negative combination over recent months with the copper price down nearly 15% year-to-date. Fears of a Chinese growth slowdown due to aggressive (and necessary) internal economic reform measures, combined with the alleged use of copper as a means of collateral in ‘shadow banking’ deals, has overhung the metal which is used widely in a variety of industrial and construction applications.
Minoan (MIN) has not yet issued a formal announcement, either an RNS or via the Glasgow Herald, but it seems as if it has got the local thumbs up for its company making Cave Sidero project according to Greek Press Reports.
Cairn Energy’s (CNE) latest set of results were far from market-pleasing and resulted in a 14 per cent drop in its share price yesterday. It now sits at its lowest price since the market crashed in 2008, albeit with far more shares in existence. The current price of 168p equates to a market cap of close to £1 billion, but is there value here?
Hello share fans: As soon as I sold some Lloyds Group (LLOY) and some IQE (IQE), Sod's Law kicked in. Both of these pesky stocks rose. Only slightly, but as I sold quite a few shares, it was significant loss.
Over the last six months the share price charts for Tower Resources (TRP) and Rockhopper (RKH) couldn’t be more different. Rockhopper is down about 45%, while Tower has gained over 600%, on an intraday basis. Over the next two articles I’ll look at the relative fortunes of these two companies and explain why one could be a buy and the other a sell.
Online retailer of 'fast fashion' targeted at 20-somethings, ASOS plc (ASC) has reported slower sales growth for the two months ended 28th February (+26% v. +38% in the prior four months, +35% in the corresponding 2013 period) and updated that investment in warehousing and in its China start-up will reduce full-year EBIT margin. The shares have tanked.
Normally companies comment on current trading when issuing annual results in an RNS. But AIM listed Minoan (MIN) seems keen to get the news out…via the Glasgow Herald.
